About the property

Elegant Apt, Canal View, 2 Bathrooms (Jacuzzi and Shower), 1 Huge Bedroom, 4 Pax

The apt is located in the real heart of Venice, just few minutes walking from both St Mark Square and Rialto, so it is easy to take a rest at any moment of the day if you are tired and want to have a break.

The apt is located at the first floor - just one flight of stairs (20 steps) - and overlooks a beautiful canal where gondolas have their tour, so it is not uncommon during the day to hear some singers who play venetian songs!

If you arrive to the apt from S Marco stop by public boat (line 1 or 2) , you will not have to cross any bridge with your luggage, it is a short (few minutes) and plain walk.

If you prefer to stop at Rialto, you will cut your ride of around 20 min , but you will have to cross one bridge.

The apt has just been restored ( June 2015 ). The entrance is large with a modern fireplace, then you enter a comfortable ... and then again a spacious dining room, connected to the fully equipped kitchen.

The bedroom is huge with a king size bed ( but it can be separated in two big single beds), and it provides two other sofa-beds.

The two bathrooms are really comfortable, one with shower and the other with jacuzzi.

You will be met at the boat stop from someone of the family, who will bring you to the apt , and provide you a map giving all the information you need about museums, exhibitions, restaurants, supermarkets..

Ideal Venice Apartment

We stayed in this San Marco apartment for 5 nights in early December and as the title says it is an ideal apartment for anyone visiting Venice. This was our 4th visit to Venice in the last 10 years and our 3rd apartment rental so we are fairly familiar with Venice. Our earlier 2 rentals in Venice were on the Dosuduro side of the Grand Canal and were very nice, however, neither was as well situated or as elegant as the San Marco apartment. Reaching the apartment could not have been easier - Roberta met us at the Rialto stop and walked us to the apartment (even helping with the luggage).The apartment is one flight of stairs up from street level and on a canal. Yes, there are gondoliers rowing by the window! As advertised, it is very quiet in spite of the busy street it is located on a definite plus as we are light sleepers. Roberta provided all of the necessary apartment information, nearby restaurant recommendations, and her phone # in the event of a problem(there were none). The apartment is beautifully decorated in a modern style with some traditional Venetian touches. Of special note is the well thought out lighting in each of the rooms. The rooms are spacious with plenty of closet space. The kitchen has all of the necessary cooking implements and very modern appliances. And a washing machine as well! There are 2 fully functional modern bathrooms and everything was spotless when we arrived. The photos on the listing site are an accurate depiction of the décor and condition. We cooked many of our meals and were delighted to find there are 2 supermarkets as well as the famous Rialto market within a 10 minute walk. Location of the apartment is ideal as it is a 10 minute walk to Piazza San Marco and the Rialto bridge. This apartment is right in the heart of Venice. We always try to make helpful critical comments but honestly, we cannot think of anything we would recommend changing as the hosts have thought of everything a visitor needs to be comfortable and feel at home. We will unhesitatingly recommend this apartment to our friends when they visit Venice.

Fantastic spacious apartment in an excellent location. Very clean and comfortable, providing everything we needed for our 7 night stay. I would definitely recommend Roberta and her apartment in Venice without hesitation.

Absolutely Amazing place!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Words cannot begin to describe how perfect this place is. The location, the views, the decor, everything is perfect. My wife and I stayed for 2 nights during our honeymoon and I must say it truly was a romantic and beautiful place to stay. We were so blessed to be able to enjoy this beautiful place. Roberta was great and her communication was top notch. She helped us navigate Venice and made perfect recommendations. This place is amazing and cannot say enough about it. Perfect in everyway, I highly recommend it!!!

Lovely apartment in a great location

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is lovely, and in a wonderful location. Having two bathrooms was very convenient. There were a few minor glitches -- like no knife to cut bread or vegetables, and no instructions for using the heat, but the owner was very responsive. While watching gondolas glide by was enjoyable, the occasionally loud passengers were not.
