About Linda

Based in Sydney, Australia, my other favourite city in the world...

I've had wanderlust all my life! Travelling is like breathing to me and no place has captured my heart like Venice!!!!

Venice is a place I've come back to again and again and the more often I come the more I realise there is so much more to discover! Another season, another wonder, another hideaway..... Hence my dream to have a home here. I truly hope you will feel the same way when you visit and am excited to do all I can to make that happen!

Linda purchased this apartment in 2016

Why Linda chose San Polo

Ca’Fortuna is a beautiful apartment on the third floor of a palazzo in San Polo in Venice, our favourite city in the world. Boasting a large kitchen, laundry facilities and spacious living and separate dining room, Ca’Fortuna is a stunning Venetian apartment which sparkles with Swarovski chandeliers and Venetian antiques as well as Natuzzi leather furniture and local artwork. The stone and wrought iron balcony looks out over Rio di San Stin where gondolas glide their way along the beautiful canals.

San Polo is in the heart of Venice, a short walk to the train station, bus stop, Rialto Bridge and Accademia.

We know you will love Venice and we hope your stay at Ca’ Fortuna will make you feel like a local and tempt you back to this magical city again and again!

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment truly has the best of both worlds. It has a quiet neighbourhood feel being away from the hustle and bustle of the main tourist track and also close enough for a very easy walk to all points of interest. The local restaurants are excellent and our apartment compendium details our favourite local restaurants as well as those a little further away. At the same time, a stay in Venice would be incomplete without a balcony overlooking a canal especially when one can see gondolas gliding by.

Ca’ Fortuna - canal, balcony, gondolas!

Stunning rental with a breathtaking view of the canals

  • 5 of 5

We had a very good experience from beginning to end with this rental property. I had great communications with the owner. All the paperwork and information was sent on time and easy to understand. Arrival was coordinated with the local contact which was very helpful. She also was helpful in coordinating transportation to the airport when we were leaving.

The apartment itself is absolutely stunning. I felt like I was staying at a five-star Hotel... but with the personal touch. And having the balcony is such a treat. We spent many afternoons just sitting out there enjoying the gondolas go down the canal’s.

Linda also provided a great list of restaurants and attractions. My suggestion is go to at least a few of the restaurants she suggests, the ones we visited were by far the best places we ate in town. The area right near the apartment is delightful and actually we enjoyed it more than being directly on the Grand Canal. Overall I have no complaints about our experience. The owner, location and the apartment itself were outstanding. If we were to return the Van Ness would definitely stay there again!

Very beautiful apartment. Very well appointed

  • 4 of 5

Great area on a canal with Gondola views close to water bus stops. Very easy to get lost in this city.

Could have better instructions to get to the apartment or possible someone meet you at the bus/parking depot and take you to the apartment the first time.

Owner's Response: Mark, we did send you detailed instructions on how and where to meet which you did not follow. We were surprised that you tried to walk to the apartment late at night in a city where people get lost during the day. Your experience taught us one thing. We now specifically tell our guests not to try to walk to the apartment.

Location, location, location!

  • 5 of 5

Loved being on the canals and enjoying the special views. Apartment was well-suited for two couples and the kitchen was well stocked. Extremely convenient to good grocery store (beautiful produce, fine meats and cheeses, etc.), several fine restaurants and gift shops. Walking was a must but there was a nearby vaparetto stop. Don't miss the Frari church which is five minutes away with absolutely breathtaking paintings. Would recommend this apartment.

our stay in venice

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Venice. Ca'Fortuna was a very comfortable place to stay. It was very clean. Our host Enrica was very nice. The only thing we had a problem with was trying to find the apartment at the end of the day. We always got lost. It would take us almost an hour trying to find the apartment. It was very frustrating. Other than that, we loved the apartment

Canal View

  • 4 of 5

The property location was very good, close to a grocery store, restaurants and Rialto. The balcony was wonderful with all the canal activity and the school across the way. We appreciated the supplies provided by the owner and the quick responses to any questions we had. The only negative was the stairs. Three flights with luggage, even just a carry on, isn’t fun.

Owner's Response: Hi Austin and Nona Very glad you enjoyed the apartment. When we bought it, we knew we wanted a balcony with a canal view - quintessential Venice. Yes, the stairs are a challenge but we figure it's only once with bags! Kind regards Linda
