Guestbook comments from the manager

Our family of 4 (2 adults 2 teens)enjoyed a 3 night stay in this spacious,comfortable and convenient apartment right on the Grand canal.

The sights and sounds of Venice were there to enjoy right outside the huge windows,yet double glazing kept the apartment beautifully quiet. Palazzo Mocenigo is located within a neighbourhood of galleries, small restaurants and local cafes in all in a labyrinth of alleys. This provided a great base for exploring Venice.

Our host Marco met us at the Vaporretto stop and took us to the delightful, restored, apartment building , thoroughly informing us of all we needed to know.I will happily book through Red House next visit.

Faboulous apartment right on the Grand Canal

  • 5 of 5

This is a very large apartment right on the Grand Canal. We would eat cheese and sip wine while we watched the boats go by. Central location to everything. Clean and well furnished. Sophie met us at the St. Angelo stop and took us to the apartment. Everything was easy and comfortable. I would stay at this place again in a heartbeat.

The perfect location and apartment for a few days in Venice

  • 4 of 5

This is the first time that we have stayed at an apartment rather than a hotel in Venice and we weren't disappointed. The location is magnificent and I kept having to pinch myself that we could actually stay on the grand canal itself - and with such a spectacular view. It was hard to tear ourselves away from the window. The apartment is nicely furnished, with everything there for a few days' stay. The only thing that would make it better still would be an oven in the kitchen and some milk in the fridge for our first cup of coffee. Thank you Marco at Red House for the beautiful stay!

Live in Venice as a native

  • 5 of 5

This apartment fronts on the Grand Canal. Watching the city come to life each morning was very enjoyable. Bruno met us at a Vaparetto stop and took us to the apartment. We thought we would never find our way around! It turns out it was vey easy to navigate. The apartment is @a 10 minute walk to St. Mark's. The neighborhood offers everything you could possibly want. The last 3 days we had water coming into the main hallway outside our front door. It never entered our apartment. It gave us a sense of what many locals go through during high tides! we would gladly come back to this apartment!

A good Quality/Price Ratio

  • 4 of 5

This apartment provides a great Venician experience: well located (near San Samuele Plaza, which appeared as very safe to us) right on the Grand Canal (ground floor). As other reviews mentioned, it is quite sizeable. We did not have problems with the hot water. This apartment would deserve 5* if the the cooking plate and the furniture were upgraded. The service provided by the owner (Red House ) was outstanding; the best experience we ever had.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Close to the popular/tourist spots in Venice but located in a quiet area of San Marco. Enjoy sunset on the Grand Canal on your own private jetty with bellinis, cheeses, etc purchased from the nearby supermarket. Plenty of good restaurants nearby or take a 3 min walk to one of two ferry stops and head elsewhere for a meal. The kitchen is small and furniture dated but comfortable. Great for a couple.

The best thing of Venice may have been our choice of the apartment

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is literally right on the Canal Grande 40 cm above the water.

Beautiful furnished in an Italian - antiques kind a way. Clean. A friendly man (Bruno) to explain the apartment and the island (on a map)

We had to get accustomed to the strong coffee maker (and for the none Italians it would have been nice if their would have been just a regular one), the washing machine was't working very well but ....

other then that: as everywhere in the world it's all about

Location, Location, Location

And the apartment is in a perfect spot. Far enough away from the crowds (we went in august) and yet close by water taxi's, tragetto's, gondola's and just walking. The charm of the island is: you can walk everywhere...and so we did.

We stayed 4 nights, which we found a bit long ... but we didn't go out to Murano or the Lido

All in all a very romantic travel one has to do at least once in a lifetime.

We definitely would recommend this property to other people going to Venice.
