Luxurious apartment of 200 square meters, completely renovated in 2014, located on the second floor of a sixteenth century palace in the heart of Venice. The house is 'L', according to the type of Italian homes already restored at the end of 800, with two long corridors which overlook the rooms.
It consists of an entrance hall with a sofa conversation, a large lounge with leather sofas, Italian-built, four large double bedrooms, one with a four poster bed and another with a private bathroom with a spa tub. The kitchen is modern and comfortable, while maintaining a romantic style, and is complete with all appliances: fridge, freezer, electric fan oven, microwave, hob with four burners, toaster, moka coffee maker, kettle (kettle ); the door leads to the main terrace of about 45 square meters, a rarity in a city like Venice. Also in the bright dining room facing south leads to the second terrace, which thanks to the great location allows you to soak up the sun even in winter. The three bathrooms provide a great comfort to the guests: the blue bathroom is complete with shower while the green offers great relaxation with a spa bath.
We chose Art Deco design to combine with furniture of the late nineteenth century and details of more modern taste, recreating the atmosphere of an elegant home experienced by a family for four generations.
In a few minutes walk you can reach the Rialto Bridge, the true heart of the city, Piazza San Marco, the seat of secular and religious power of the Serenissima, and the Basilica of SS. Giovanni e Paolo, a splendid example of Gothic architecture and Baroque monuments inside.
Sweet Home Venice is a family run company: we're two brothers, Francesco and Maria Chiara, and we personally take care of everything. Direct management allows us to be in contact with our guests, always welcomed on arrival by one of us, and to ensure an ongoing apartments upkeep to offer comfortable homes at a reasonable price.
Discover with us Venice's true spirit!

My friends and I liked everything about this apartment:
Away from the hustle and bustle of St Mark's Square, but an easy walk to any place in Venice. Delightful neighborhood with great shopping and restaurants nearby.
We were a group of 4 to 8 depending on travel movements, but the apartment could easily accommodate us all without feeling cramped. The apartment was clean and exactly as pictured in the photos. The wifi worked fine for us.
The owner met us downstairs near the restaurant when we came in from the train station. He gave us a great orientation to the apartment, the neighborhood.
Many thanks for making our stay in Venice so memorable.
We had a magical time in Venice and our accommodations were a big part of that. We have a big family with five teenagers. They all want their private space and this apartment delivered. It was well appointed, spotless upon arrival, and centrally located. Don't be fooled by the rustic exterior. Instead, relish its authenticity while you enjoy all the comforts of the modern interior.
Air conditioning units are present in the bedrooms. While the manager warns of their overuse (you pay), we easily kept things comfortable at little expense. They provide plenty of bedding and towels. There is a washer to keep up with the damp clothes after a day of sightseeing in the muggy weather. While there is no dryer, the patios serve nicely as a drying area.
But here's the thing: Francesco and Maria themselves were absolutely stellar as property managers. They were professional, kind, flexible, and informative. We were terribly late for our appointed check-in time and Francesco took it in stride. He spent as much time as we needed going over the apartment's amenities and tourism recommendations.They are locals and gave us the inside track.
The tiniest of gripes: the garbage pickup schedule is inconvenient. You are expected to check-out having emptied all the trash bins in the apartment. It is essentially impossible to do this because recycling is not picked up every day. You are almost guaranteed to walk away holding a trash bag with no recourse but to risk a ticket depositing it in a public receptacle. If you leave it outside the apartment you may forfeit some of your security deposit. Listen carefully to their instructions to minimize this inconvenience.
While not the cheapest apartment, it was a fantastic value. Splurge a bit and you will be glad you did.
This apartment was very large, very clean, and very comfortable. There was more than enough room for the five of us. The only downside was that we were so busy sightseeing that we didn't have time to enjoy the wonderful terrace. Francesco met us at the waterbus stop and helped us get acclimated. We especially appreciated his restaurant and gelato recommendations. Maria Chiara, who we met on our last day, was also very friendly and helpful.This was a great place and I would definitely rent it again, but next time, I won't pack so much. The apartment is on the third floor and there is no elevator. Truly a wonderful experience for our first visit to Venice.
This is an amazing find in Venice. The apartment is absolutely huge, we were a a party of 7 and had more than enough room. Every room was clean and airy, the outside space was lovely for relaxing with a glass of wine. We didn't really use the kitchen, but it was just as nice as it looks in the pictures. Next time we will allow at least a few more days to explore and cook up some wonderful things from the market!
The location was perfect for navigating the city, Maria was wonderful and thorough and always available. I can't say enough about our experience here.
This apartment is really a special place. As other reviewers have already stated, the apartment is very spacious, well laid out, and well cared for. There were five of us travelling together and we couldn't have been happier with this choice. The apartment was spotlessly clean. The beds are very comfortable. The TV and WiFi worked perfectly. The kitchen has everything one would need to make meals, although we chose to eat in the great restaurants located just a few steps away. (Note - the kitchen has a drip coffee maker, but it is impossible to buy filters so you might take a size 4 or 6 cone filter.) It has two outside deck areas (although one is without furniture) where we enjoyed our breakfast in the morning and our happy hour in the late afternoon. It is a very quiet apartment, yet located just steps from the busy main walking route (from train station) to Piazza San Marco. The main supermarket is a 5-10 minute walk from the apartment. Maria Chiara and Francesco (brother and sister team) answered our emails promptly and are very professional in their management of this apartment. Maria Chiara met us at the vaporetto station as planned and oriented us to the neighbourhood as we walked to the apartment. Maria Chiara also spent quite a bit of time with us giving us lots of practical information about restaurants, transportation to airport, etc. In addition to restaurants recommended by Maria Chiara (in the welcome binder), we had a nice meal at Trattoria Tre Spiedi, which is located just around the corner from the apartment. Our only suggestions for the apartment would be some side tables or a coffee table in the living room and perhaps a bistro table and a couple of chairs for the deck that is currently without furniture. These are small things and did not detract from our real enjoyment of this wonderful apartment. We would absolutely recommend this apartment to anyone and hope to return!
My friends and I liked everything about this apartment:
1) Location: away from the chaos that is St Mark's Square, but an easy walk or vaporetto ride to any place in Venice. Delightful neighborhood with great shopping and restaurants nearby.
2) Apartment: we were a group of four, but the apartment could easily accommodate six or more without feeling cramped. The apartment was clean and exactly as pictured in the photos. The wifi worked fine for us.
3) Owners: Maria met us at the water bus stop in Rialto when we came in from the airport. She gave us a great orientation to the apartment, the neighborhood, and Italian customs in general. She also recommended a wonderful restaurant nearby. Maria could not have been nicer!
Many thanks to Maria and Francesco for making our stay in Venice so memorable.
PS One word of advice to Americans who are inclined to over pack -- DON'T! You will be transporting your suitcase over cobblestone streets and will have to carry it up two stories to the apartment. You'll be happier if you pack lightly!
