Really like the house and its location. The house has been decorated with a lot of taste and style. It's equipped with everything you'll need. We stayed for 3 nights with our 2 young kids during the heatwave so the airconditioned bedrooms were very welcome.
Costante was very much available before and during the stay. And his assistant ensured a warm and very flexible welcome.
The house is located in a relatively quiet area of the city and just a few steps away there is a lovely square with some nice restaurants and a very handy supermarket. So you don't have to go far out at night with the kids for diner - actually the kids loved to run around the square while we were enjoying a quiet meal. The house is equipped with a large TV screen and proper wifi so Netflix eased the lack of our baby sitter.
It's only the downstairs bathroom that is a little out of touch with the quality of the rest of the house, and what we are used to but the rest of the amenities still justify a solid 5-star rating.
It's a 20 minute walk from St Marco square during which you will pass a number of beautiful bridges and many typical Venetian little streets and shops.
The Riva de Biasio waterbus stop is a few steps away and the larger Vaporetto terminal, where you can buy tickets and take the boat to Murano is perhaps 5 minutes away.
We bought tickets for the St Marco, the Bell tower and the Doge Palace in advance to avoid long queuing in peak-season and to avoid disappointment.
As this was part of a bigger Italian roundtrip we arrived with quite some luggage, which would not have been convenient on the overcrowded, hot water busses in mid-summer. Hence we booked somewhat expensieve - but REALLY great - water taxis to get us from and to the airport/Rivia de Biassio (for the kids these two water taxi trips were the highlights of an very exciting Italian trip).
We liked so much the appartment's location
The isolation was so bad, it was so hot in the appartment. More than this, the appartment in général was not so good. I think that it should be interesting to put à climatisation and do some renovations.
