It was beautifully decorated and great to have second bedroom and washing machine when traveling with kids . Owner was very nice . Outdoor space was added bonus when you wanted to take a break . My family also couldn't stop watching the gondolas go by the kitchen window. Fantastic !!!

Location and Charm!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was simply wonderful! It's in a building that dates back to the 1400s, and was very tastefully rennovated and decorated. As other reviewers noted, it's right on the water and you can watch the gondolas as they pass by and even open the window and say hello if you wish! The beds were comfortable and the air conditioning worked great! The apartment had both a washer and a dryer, the latter a rare find in Italy. Kimberly graciously met us at the Rialto Bridge and guided us to the flat, which was conveniently located. She had a binder full of helpful information, provided us with a map and suggested a restaurant for our first meal there. Kimberly was a great communicator leading up to and during our stay. I would highly recommend this apartment for your Venice stay.

Beautiful place in the heart of Venice

  • 5 of 5

With only being 5 min walk away from Rialto Bridge and San Marco Square, it does not get any better. Owners were extremely friendly and relaxed. Would highly recommend the place and stay there again.

Thank you

Dreamy stay in Venice

  • 5 of 5

My family of 3 had a wonderful stay at this lovely apartment. It is located off a quiet little courtyard, down a tiny alley off a bustling street, with a window that faces right onto a canal. You can sit in the dining area while sipping your morning coffee, or evening wine, and watch the gondolas glide by -- and if you're lucky, listen to a tenor serenade some tourists. The place is so comfortable and the view so dreamy that you almost don't want to leave and explore Venice. But, when you do, you are only a 10 min walk from the Rialto or Saint Mark's Square. The owner, Kimberly, is very friendly, helpful and easy to communicate with if/when you need anything, but you probably won't since the place is so well appointed. There are laundry facilities as well, which we found very handy. Highly recommend a stay here!

The Perfect Spot in Venice

  • 5 of 5

You absolutely could not find a better place in Venice. Convenient to everywhere, all the character you can dream of, and a great, attentive, flexible owner; Chimney Sweep Well has it all. I would be amazed if there is a more perfect place for a family to stay on Venice.
