The location is magnificent and I kept having to pinch myself that we could actually stay on the grand canal itself - and with such a spectacular view. It was hard to tear ourselves away from the window. The apartment is nicely furnished, with everything there for a few days' stay. The only thing that would make it better still would be an oven in the kitchen and some milk in the fridge for our first cup of coffee. Thank you Marco at Red House for the beautiful stay!

Though small, it is comfortable and equipped with everything you need. There are lots of good bars and restaurants around Piazza San Barnaba, just across the Canal. The owner, Patrizia, was welcoming and helpful. I can recommend it without reservation.

The apartment is in a great location. It was easy to get to from the bus station where you arrive from the airport. The apartment was decorated just as the pictures. A really homey quirky place with everything you need. We especially enjoyed the hifi speaker system which you can just plug a phone/iPad into and get Spotify through the wifi. The Kitchen and Bathroom are both fairly modern and the rest of the house is more traditionally decorated. It's a really quiet neighbourhood, you can just hear church bells and the hum of boats as they pass by. The apartment is close to water bus stops and we got the boat across to the Sky Bar at the Hilton one night which is a 10min walk around the corner. Lots of really nice restaurants and bars nearby which are much cheaper than the more touristy St Marc's Sq. There's towels and hairdryers there, extra pilllows and blankets if you're cold - although the heating system seems great and always hot water. It's a really great apartment with lots of room and we never felt cramped even though there was 6 adults. Have told lots of people about it already and will hopefully be back one day! Thanks David!
