There are other 2 bedrooms that are single but can add a bed each to make them twin. The second and third bathrooms have respectively stylish bath and a cabin shower and, as the rest of the apartment, have been completely fitted new in August 2014.
The house façade has sun all day as it is exposed south and the canal is quite large but not so busy and noisy as you might expect, the double glazed windows and the centralized air conditioning that provide warm and cool allow the guests to be isolated from any external noise.

The apartment absorbed ten people with ease, was warm when it was cold outside, has a well appointed kitchen and is very close to good shops and markets. Christmas was a delight. The kids did not want to go home which says a lot!
There were 8 of us who stayed here - 4 couples with most of us in our 60's, and the apartment accommodated us very well. It was a nice combination of old world charm with a modern kitchen and bathrooms. We were greeted promptly at the vaporetto stop which is very close to the apartment and Sophie walked us to the apartment where she gave us a tour of the apartment and told us where we would find a grocery store and how to get to main points of interest. The kitchen had everything we needed and the dining room table was large enough we could enjoy our meals together. 3 of the bedrooms had queen or king-size beds, and the other 2 had 2 twin beds. There are a few things I would like to point out. It is up 36 stairs with no elevator. One bedroom has an attached bathroom. The other two bathrooms are side by side next to the kitchen and laundry room, not by the bedrooms. However they are very modern - one with a shower and the other with a large tub. The twin beds are probably fine for children, but were not comfortable for the 2 adults who had to sleep there. In each room one twin bed is a couch and the other is the type you find in a camp dormitory with no box springs. The larger beds were comfortable. The couch and chairs are well worn almost to the point of being uncomfortable. However, the livingroom floor is made of the same marble you see in the Doge's Palace and the light fixtures are Murano glass, so quite a contrast.
It is about a 30 minute walk to St. Mark's Square if you walk briskly and don't window shop on the way. The vaporetto or water taxi is just a few yards away.
It had a few minor inconveniences, but I would still recommend it for a large group and you will enjoy your stay.
Great location near the train station and many restaurants. We had 10 adults and a baby and it worked really well for us for 4 nights.
Nice large apartment for 8-10, canal view close to train
We rented this apartment to be on the canal for the water parade at opening of Carnevale. Perfect location for the show. Nice restaurants and cafe nearby, vaporetto (waterbus) stop just a few steps away. 1-2 stops on the Aliliguna traghetto (water transit) from the airport (orange line, Guglie stop). Nice fully equipped kitchen, 3 double bedrooms & 2 single rooms with a second bed available in each, very comfortable for up to 10 guests. There are 2 flights of stairs up to the apartment. 2 shared bathrooms & 1 ensuite. It was an easy walk to St marks square, took us about 45 minutes stopping to take photos all among the way, I recommend taking the vaporetto back, sit at the front to take pics & enjoy the view on the grand canal. Only a 5 minute walk to the train station. The original doorway to the Jewish ghetto is a few meters from the apartment. Take a tour & enjoy this unique piece of history.
Wonderful place for a group
Clean, well presented accommodation. Would recommend it to any groups. Would be happy to come back again. Kitchen was really well fitted out with large saucepans and new equipment. Near a canal stop. Quiet. Sophie met us at the boat stop and made sure we were all cared for. Assisted us with extra keys too. Felt sad to leave.
Longing to go back
The apartment was wonderful. The views of the canal were fabulous and so convenient to the vaporetto. The security buzzer and camera was really helpful. The facilities of the apartment were excellent and having a representative ( Gaia ) meet and great us was so good. Thank you for a fabulous time and hope to be back next year.
Between the Guglie bridge and the "Ponte dei 3 Archi" facing the Canale de Cannaregio, this apartment is just 100 meters from the Alilaguna and vaporetto stops. behind the fondamenta there is the antique Jewish ghetto, the oldest in history, that with its 5 Synagogues still has a very active community. The train station of Santa Lucia is 3 stops away or just 10 minutes'walk
