Absolutely beautiful stay

5 of 5
Lovely traditional apartment with plenty of space for my wife and I plus 3 children. No hesitation in recommending both the location and this apartment as a base to explore Venice. Probably the best city break we've ever done. Thanks!

Perfect place to stay for so many reasons!

5 of 5
I highly recommend Josh's apartment in Venice. Although we had to change our plans, he was very understanding. I heard his love and appreciation for Venice in our conversation. This is shown in the special care of his apartment. The area is perfect. You will be well taken care of I am sure. We hope to make it there someday. The reviews hold up. Trudy Artman July 13/17
