Why Rita chose San Polo

Because now we live in Usa but we love to come back to our loved Venice!

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is placed exactly at the center of Venice, in the heart of the most typical part of the city . The square of San Polo (called Campo) is the largest of Venice, full of magnificent palaces and very close to the famous Rialto bridge.

Excellent Value Stay in San Palo

  • 5 of 5

We were met by Agata who checked us into the apartment. She took the extra time to map out restaurants And places to see for us. She checked in via text during the stay to make sure everything was going well. The flat was as expected and suited us well. Others have commented that there is noise from boats and based on location that is to be expected. It did not bother our party. We would stay again. Excellent value and stay got off to a great start with Agata our check in hostess.

a charming authentic venetian apartment. Centrally located but tucked away from the crowds. Loved it

  • 5 of 5

Such a charming authentic apartment in the heart of Venice. A very central location and everything is walkable. Because this is an actual apartment and not a vacation rental pop up, it is full of soul, we felt as though we were visiting family in Venice!

Well equipped kitchen to cook. Our family of 4 was very comfortable. There is traffic on the canal outside the window, this did not bother, we really enjoyed waking up early. Earplugs would probably do the trick. Grocery store is less than 5 minutes walk.

The check in was easy. The best way to communicate with the hosts is WhatsApp. Matteo was very helpful pointing out lots of greta restaurants and neighborhoods to explore.

Even in the peak of tourist season, the location really made our trip social. We would love to stay here again.

Perfect location in Venice

  • 5 of 5

We - a family of four with two teenagers - had a wonderful time at the San Polo apartment. It is very large, bright, and roomy, in a terrific location overlooking the canal. The Rialto market is close by for groceries, with bakeries and a grocery store on the way. The apartment is tucked away from the campo down a series of alleys, so it is quiet even while it is in the middle of a busy neighbourhood. Can't say enough good things about this spot - we are already planning a return visit (maybe in a few years).

Our favorite part of Venice

  • 5 of 5

We came to Venice for two months with a 5-year-old grandson. After carefully researching hundreds of places, we chose this apartment because of its location in a quiet campiello just off the main tourist track, its very spacious layout, on a canal with a brilliant view of the grand canal, a pleasant kitchen with an american coffee maker, and because rita was so easy to work with.

We found it everything we wanted, and more. Rita and her crew were very responsive to every little thing. The place is huge, filled with light, comfortable, well appointed and stocked, and the views are scrumptious. gondoliers ply the waters below us during the day, and at night we love to watch the light flickering on the palazzo walls across our canal.

One of the reviewers complained of noise. The campiello is used for deliveries and collections during the morning hours - we call it our Venetian alarm clock. If you close the shutters at night, you would miss an early start to your day if there were no sounds. Sunday is very quiet, but on the other days you are encouraged to get up when Venetians do, and make the most of your time here. If you are a light sleeper, you can wear earplugs.

There are two bathrooms, one right next to the entrance, one halfway down the hall. The first has a sitting tub that our grandson adored playing in with his toys, and the second bathroom has a big bath you can swim in. Plenty of hot water, and good water pressure. Both bathrooms have showers, but we love a good soak in the luxurious marble-lined room.

There's a laundry room with everything you need, including an iron and cleaning things. As is usual, there is no dryer; the line runs out from the bathroom window. Since it's usually sunny and bright here, drying is no problem, and there's a folding rack for rainy days.

The kitchen is wonderfully well-stocked with pots and pans, cutlery, tools and gadgets, lots of plates, bowls and glasses. Because we had no intention of blowing our budget, we cooked all the time, shopping every day, getting to know the clerks and vendors.

We can't say enough, because space is limited. It's our favorite place in Venice, and we wish we could live here.

The location was convenient to all areas of Venice. Took us about 20 minutes to walk to St. Marks square and less then ten to the to the Rialto Bridge. A large supermarket was five minutes walk away. "Popsicle gelato" was also nearby. Also a farmacy right in the square, about a minute to San Polo, when my son developed a cough.

The apartment looks exactly like the pictures, but the view online doesn't do it justice. It is gorgeous in person. For the view alone I recommend it, but the large size and amenities complete the package.

I was traveling with twin toddlers so we utilized the kitchen for breakfast and cooked one dinner. We even used the cleaning supplies. Everything we needed to cook and clean was there. The only thing lacking was wine glasses.

The front toilet had a weird flush,but they put a sign on it telling you how to flush it to avoid issues with it. Having two bathrooms was wonderful and hard to find in small apartments in Europe. Also having a tub with kids was wonderful. A washer with English instructions and a rack to dry clothes made our vacation easier as we left for a cruise from the apartment with all clean clothes .

They also had a small bag of toys which my kids found and utilized once we had packed all their stuff to leave. It gave us relief while packing and was much appreciated.

The service was wonderful, they checked in on us, and they communicated with me timely before hand. The representative gave us tips for places to eat and gelato. They also provided a very detailed map.

Overall a wonderful place to stay and if in Venice I will go back to this apartment.

Wonderful Venice Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Venice many times. This excellent apartment makes us want to go back very soon!

Rita was very easy to work with from our first inquiry through our arrival. Elena met us when we arrived and gave us a thorough introduction to the apartment and the neighborhood.

We are a couple, and do minimal cooking. The apartment was very comfortable. The kitchen is well-equipped for those who do cook. Everything was clean and ready for the rental.

The location is superb. Two vaporetto stops are only a couple of minutes away. Most of our favorite places in Venice, sites, restaurants, etc. were all easily reached from the campiello the apartment is on by foot or vaporetto. There is a convenient grocery, and we found a couple of good bars for our morning coffee and late afternoon aperitivi depending on which route we were taking.

We're looking forward to staying here again. Highly recommended.
