A spacious flat with a really helpful manager. But a few downsides

  • 3 of 5

A great apartment, with all of the necessities with the exception of air conditioning. The managers daughter was at the landing when our taxi arrived, so getting in and becoming acquainted were quite easy. As noted the lack of air conditioning in the summer months is a bit of a drawback, as you need to leave windows open to keep air circulating. Since the flat is right on the canal at a loading area for deliveries to local restaurants and stores, the supply barges started arriving around 6 or earlier. (I have photos) Additionally, they are currently renovating the first floor, so if you did get back to sleep after the delivery, the jackhammers will have you awake at 7. If you are a light sleeper and want to sleep in, this isn't the best place. Other than this we would recommend this flat.

Lovely apartment in central venice

  • 4 of 5

What a beautiful CLEAN apartment that is close many restaurants, gelato shops ,fresh fruit and vegetable stands. My son spent so much time looking out the window watching the boats and gondolas go by. The apartment is well stocked with every need including coffee, sugar, basic spices, olive oil and viniger. About a 7 minute walk to st marco square and the grand canal

If I will do it over we would

Take a private water taxi to the Ponte Minich stop. About a 45 second walk to the apartment. We took the public water bus and had to walk about 20 minutes from the closest stop pulling luggage up and down quite few bridges and it was NO FUN!!! If you take a private taxi it was 80 euros total and the public boat was 15 euros each. We were a group of 7 so cheaper and zero stress.

Know that for Google maps punch in" calle trevisana o cicogna" 6213.

Very hot in June even with the many provided fans for the apartment.

Great vacation-- Will stay longer if I ever get back

This apartment is, indeed, spacious. However, I do not consider it to be comfortable. The furniture was all very hard. The bathrooms were less than adequate. There were not enough towels provided. Most importantly, the owner should absolutely provide a map to find it! We dragged our luggage around for more than half an hour before finally stumbling upon it. When we inquired of locals as to where it was located, we got the response to turn in the first "gallery". Gallery?? What the heck were they referring to? Apparently, they meant the first little "street", or alleyway. Totally frustrating. Venice is charming, but not for the less-abled such as myself. The constant bridges to be crossed over all the small side canals were extremely difficult, as each bridge consisted of going up six or seven steps, then down the steps on the other side. I was exhausted! Not this property owner's fault -- just my comment on Venice in general.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Family of 6 with 4 teenagers for 3 nights. Plenty of space, very clean, good beds and linens, kitchen had everything necessary. Centrally located with everything very close by. The property was located right on a canal, so you could lean out the window and get a great view and pictures. In fact you can take a boat right to the apartment! However, be aware that it's like being on a road- boats go down the canal all night and there can be loud people. We had some serious noise that kept us up late for one of the nights we were there.

Beautiful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

This apartment right along a canal was beautiful. Very close to everything but in a quiet area. The rooms are big and the furnishings beautiful. Rosanna was wonderful to work with and always got back to me quickly. Would highly recommend staying here. It is even close to a dock where you can hire a private taxi for traveling to and from the airport. Thank you Rosanna for sharing your Venice home with us. We had a wonderful time! Jane S.

We absolutely loved our stay! The apartment is charming, clean and has everything you need. We were a group of 10 traveling to Italy for the first time. My family of five, my sister's family of 4 and our mom (age range 11-80yrs). We were nervous about booking an apartment vs. a hotel but Rossana quickly put our fears at ease. She was very helpful and responsive with any questions. We took the express train from Florence (trains are excellent!) and took a water taxi to the apartment. The taxi took us to the "street" and it was just a couple of doors down. It was so easy getting from the train station to the apartment. We arranged in advance for Rossana to cook us a kid friendly meal. After a day of travel, we arrived to the table being set and an absolutely delicious meal. My kids are still talking about the Pasta Bake! The cheese and crackers, chicken & vegetable stir fry, salad, wine, sparkling water, juice, ice cream cake were just perfect. And, we enjoyed it the second night too! It was just wonderful.

The apartment is about a 10 minute walk to San Marco Square. If you can get Google Maps on your cell phone, it is very helpful :) We had a wonderful walking tour with Ellenor from Miles&Miles tour group. She also arranged for us to take a tour of a Glass factory on Murano which was very interesting. We then took the water shuttle to Burano which was beautiful.

We were so happy that we stayed at this apartment rather than a hotel. It worked out so well for our family.

Thank you so much Rossana for a wonderful stay!!! We highly recommend this apartment and hope we can return some day :)
