Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in San Polo

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Full Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

The Molino Stucky Condominium and the New Molino Stucky HILTON are in the same building, with the Hilton occupying the left side and the Condominium occupying the right side (please see the picture on the left). The same developer did both simultaneously, so we share the same marble bathrooms, large air conditioned rooms and other amenities. The main difference is that the Hilton charges a minimum of € 300 per day for a ROOM, and we charge a $ 175 per day for an ENTIRE TWO BEDROOM APARTMENT.

My condominium is located in a charming 18th century building overlooking the largest canal in Venice. Watch the parade of boats, from gondolas and private launches to vaporettos and ocean liners, from the privacy of your window. See Piazza San Marco's bell tower and the Salute Church. Watch the people on the Zattere in Dorsoduro on the other side of the canal going to and fro among the traditional three-pronged Venetian street lights. In the evening, look at the sun set over the stunning snow-capped Dolomites.

Our apartment is in the famous antique Molino Stucky, a charming 18th century flour mill that has just been rebuilt as Venice's premier residence. In fact, we share our island with the world famous Cipriani Hotel and Hilton Hotel. Our apartment was just recently totally renovated and furnished, and was just placed into service in the last few years. It is bright, comfortable and quiet (with special double glazed windows) and are available all year.

My apartment has parquet floors and wonderful canal AND mountain views. The apartment has 2 enormous marble bathrooms with oversize bathtubs with shower, toilet and bidet; it even has a washing machine and dryer for your clothes. The apartment has a sleeper couch in the living room and therefore sleeps six people. It is situated on the second floor and is reached by a self-service elevator, a rare commodity in Venice.

The apartment has central air conditioning and heat that you may directly control through a thermostat in the living room.

Cooking is a nice way to save money when traveling with a large family, and we try to make it as easy as possible. My kitchen is fully equipped, including all pots, pans, silverware, glasses and dishes that you could possibly need. All this and a dishwasher to clean up with after your meals. I have also provided color TVs and a stereo with a CD player, as well as an iron and ironing board. The apartment is also provided with its own mobile phone.

Finally, when renting a private home in Venice, always be careful to ask if there is an elevator. The great majority of Venetian buildings have no elevator because the Landmarks Ministry (the 'Belle Arte') forbids their installation in antique buildings. As a result, bringing a family with luggage up several flights of stairs can present quite a problem. This has been solved in our building by the installation of two fully automatic elevators for your convenience.

My apartment is sunny and bright, and has a stunning water AND mountain view. My apartment is non-smoking, and family owned and operated. In short, I have remodeled and furnished this apartment to my own high standards because I am a mother and my kids spend about three months a year here in Venice occupying it.

Why Jane or Lloyd chose Venice city centre

Even though he was born in New York, my husband can trace his family back 500 years in Venice. His dad and three of his siblings were born here. After an exhaustive search, we decided that La Giudecca was the only place where we could get away from the mass of tourists at night, yet be in in the middle of things in Dorsoduro or Piazza San Marco aftershort (and free) private launch ride. Yes, the best of both worlds. Plus, it is the home of the Hilton and the Cipriani, arguably the finest hotel in Italy, and the villas of some of the most famous performers and royalty in the world. Please come and share La Giudecca with us.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to let you know how much my family and I enjoyed staying in the Guidecca apartments. It was easy to find and the housekeeper was very helpful. I will be sure to recommend it to any friends who might be travelling to Italy in the future.







Thank you!

Beautiful property

  • 3 of 5

The location is lovely - across the water from the main part of Venice, with spectacular views, and the apartment is spacious and comfortable. There were a few amenities missing - there wasn't a way to make coffee (which was provided in every other rental we have ever stayed in), and the owner did not provide so much as a bar of soap to take a shower with. This would have been OK - there is a grocery store within walking distance. However, when we arrived, no one was there to let us in, despite our having called the owner's housekeeper that morning to confirm arrival time, and having emailed her as instructed a week prior. We called the housekeeper and the call went to voicemail. Several international calls and almost 2 hours later, most of that time spent waiting in the rain, we were let in. By the time we were settled, the grocery store was closed. I must say that this put a bit of a damper (literally) on our stay... but the views from the apartment, as I mentioned, are indeed spectacular.

Highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at this property for 3 nights. I would highly recommend it for a variety of groups. Our party consisted of 2 seniors, 2 adults and 2 teens - a wide range of ages. It worked great for all of us! The apartment is within a short distance of 2 water taxi stations, a great bakery, fruit market, small cheese/salami shop and several restaurants, There is also a lift in the building!

The owner, Jane, is VERY prompt in responding to emails. She ensures your questions are answered and advises suggestions on the area.

We arrived late so I was a bit worried about finding the location however, we took a private water taxi (75 €) and the driver contacted the housekeeper who was meeting us at the apartment upon our arrival - she came out of the building to help guide us! Yes, the 75 € was a bit high but, it was a fun experience and, a personal choice. We could certainly have taken the public water taxi and gotten off at one of the two stops near the apartment.

I do recommend purchasing the transportation card prior to arrival - you'll be using water taxi's daily.

This is a great property! If we're ever in Venice again I wouldn't hesitate to stay here.

Thank you Jane!

Great base for exploring Venice

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I spent three nights in Venice and found this apartment was ideal in that it gave us a location away from the hustle and bustle of St Mark's but with a perfect view of the city and the boats on the Giudecca Canal. Early May was a perfect time as the weather was warm and sunny, but not too hot. We will definitely return.

42nd Anniversary Celebration Trip

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our trip to Venice and Rome last night and wanted to thank Jane Levi for the wonderful stay in the two-bedroom apartment. When we arrived on the 18th of October, we were welcomed by Angelita and were given a very warm welcome and tour of the apartment and the amenities. Prior to our arrival, Jane had given us very good suggestions on how to get to the apartment and also suggested a number of places to eat and things to see. The apartment was beautiful and was right adjacent to the Hilton Molina Stucky Hotel. Our stay on Giudecca was just what we wanted. We were very close to transportation on the Vaporetto which we used over the three days we were there. After the hustle and bustle of our touring to San Marco and other islands, it was so relaxing to come back to the apartment to relax in the quietude of the area and apartment. The proximity to the Hilton Hotel was also a very special treat, particularly the Skyline Rooftop Bar, where we were able to enjoy cocktails and the fantastic view of Venice! The suggested restaurants and the trip to the Jewish Ghetto were very good and we enjoyed eating at the restaurants Jane suggested. Our only regret was that we were not able to stay a few more days in this fabulous apartment due to our need to get to Rome to visit relatives. We had a fabulous time and celebrated our 42nd wedding anniversary in Venice where we had come on our honeymoon 42 years before. We had everything we needed for our relaxing and memorable stay. Hope to come back in the near future.

This is the second time we have rented one of Jane's apartments and we were, once again, very pleased. This time we rented the one-bedroom apartment overlooking the small canal, whereas last time we had the two-bedroom with the beautiful big canal view. Frankly, it didn't matter. The apartment was bright and airy, well-appointed, and completely serviceable. We had everything we needed, and more, and our friends who rented the other one-bedroom right next door joined us for breakfast every day. We had plenty of towels for the 5 days, and we were thrilled this year to have thick oversized bath towels. The air conditioning worked perfectly, the high speed wifi never faltered, the bathroom lighting was the best I ever had for putting on makeup, the bedroom was large and had amazing storage space and the bed was comfortable. And, of course, having an elevator was a plus. In short, this really was a little home away from home -- not a hotel room with beds made and towels changed for you every day! The Molino Stuckey location is fine, just 5 minutes on the hotel shuttle to Zattere or a 5-minute walk to the vaporetto if you want to get to a location other than Zattere and San Marco. Our friends found the staff at the Molino Stuckey very helpful and they were able to print boarding passes and get other concierge-type services there. A suggestion for arriving from the airport: buy an ACTV pass for the vaporetto before you leave the airport and, if you wish, add a round trip bus ticket from Marco Polo to the bus terminal, Piazelle Roma, only another $8. The bus trip to PR is just 25 minutes and then get the 2 vaporetto (direction San Marco) or, our preference, although a slightly longer walk at the pier, the 41 vaporetto, which is faster -- only two stops to Sacca Fissola. Everything worked well for us on this trip and Jane was very helpful responsive to my questions by email before the trip. In short, we are very happy with this rental arrangement and we will be back in two years.
