Stairs not for the faint of heart

  • 4 of 5

We traveled with my 2 teens and they loved the loft and rooftop terrace! There are definitely a lot of (narrow) steps but the reward is great with an almost panoramic view. The neighborhood is quiet but conveniently 5 minutes from Rialto. The alley way seems a little bit sketchy and smells of urine but once you get to the top it's all good and thank goodness for the working air conditioning!!

Some things do need to be repaired - the iron does not work, and the shower head is broken so the water came at a trickle. The kitchen is also not "livable space" but fine for storing cold drinks and making coffee. We had a great time. Thank you Sebastiano!!

Great apartment, great location, great views!

  • 5 of 5

Sebastiano was a great host who was quick to respond and provided a lot of information before arrival about how to meet up. He met us at the S. Toma boat dock near the apartment and helped carry our bags to the building and up the stairs to the unit.

Apartment was perfect for our group of three, with the roof deck and view being a huge highlight for us. Location was great in a quieter neighborhood, but still close walking distance to a couple of different grocery stores and the Rialto bridge/market. The unit itself was clean and modern in style. Kitchen is a small, but reasonably well equipped and certainly sufficient for our needs.

We had an amazing trip and hope to stay with Sebastiano again!

Great apartment with lovely roof terrace

  • 4 of 5

Lovely apartment in great location. A few steps to reach the top but roof terrace was so worth it ...bridge below where you could sit and people watch. Easy walk from station or your can jump on vaparetto to Sa Toma bus stop where the host Sebastiano met us. Had a great time before moving on to Florence...thank you Sebastiano 😀?

Cracking apartment

  • 5 of 5

Sebastiano was there to greet us as arranged. Only a stones throw from the spot on the Rio St Polo where the speed boat dropped us was the apartment at the top of a very old property. The apartment is very modern and well equipped. The highlight was the roof terrace which gave a 360 degree breathtaking view of the city. How romantic to be sitting there at sunset with a glass of Prosecco.

The apartment is walking distance from the majority of the sights of Venice and also from the nearest Vaporetto stop.

Just one word of warning...there are a lot of steps to climb!

A great holiday was had by all

Thank you

Perfectly charming apartment with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to this apartment and our six nights there were even better than last year. Sebastiano was the perfect host, meeting us at S. Toma and then carrying our heavy cases up the 77 steps! We did warn him that being in our late 60's we would need help, but he wasn't daunted.
The apartment is clean, well equipped and well designed, making good use of the limited headroom, it being up in the rafters. The views from the altana are stunning and we were fortunate enough to be able to breakfast up there most mornings and have drinks before supper. Sometimes the only sound was a blackbird or the many church's bells .
We would definitely recommend it to family and friends who are able bodied and want to be away from the mainstream tourist routes.

The San Polo sestiere has its origins around its main square “ Campo San Polo” the largest of the city, second only to Saint mark’ s square. a fairly small district with lots of secretive lanes, some interesting sights including the Rialto Bridge, and shopping ranging from glove shops to the famous Rialto fruit, vegetable and fish marketplace. It's atmospheric and contains some useful addresses for shopping and for eating. Campo San Polo, the area's hub, is a large open space in Venice; a wide, irregular, dusty sort of square where local children and pet dogs run and play while adults chat. In the summer there's an open-air cinema here.
