                                      Wonderful Holiday Apartment

                                      5 of 5
                                      This apartment is much more than a holiday rental, the comfy furnishings, the high quality cooking equipment, even the small but impeccable selection on the bookshelf, all make you feel you are a privileged guest in a friend's home. We have self catered in Venice many times, even in another Molino Stucky apt.and this property is up there with best of them. If I had to find a negative it would possibly be the lack of canal views, but as we consider the rebuilt Stucky to be one of the latter day architectural gems of Venice, we were perfectly happy to gaze at the roofscape and secret facades to the rear of the building. We've always enjoyed staying on Guidecca and as we get older it has increasingly become our base of choice, lovely flat strolls, lots of seats from which to admire beautiful views across to Zattere, and a very easy hop over the canal to all the glories of Venice, museums , churches.art galleries, et al. As others have mentioned, the immediate vicinity provides numerous shops, restaurants and trattorie. Delightful Daniella was there to meet us and promptly sorted out our only problem, a power failure. We're very happy to give five stars.

                                      Comfortable Appartment - Good Location

                                      4 of 5
                                      Overlooking the Grand Canal and in a quiet convenient location, this little appartment is an excellent base for a sightseers visit to Venice. Accurately described, clean and warm (good in April!), we liked it a lot and would go again.

                                      Majcal Venice - views, views, views and location

                                      5 of 5
                                      The listing was 100% accurate and we had fantastic experience staying with our host. Hughes was very helpful with transfers and planning of this trip. We were a family of 6, three generations and the accommodations were 5 STAR. The views of the Grand Canal are just as seen in the pictures and location was perfect. Everyone must visit Venice and staying in the roomy apartment is a plus.
