About Mrs Johanna Olby
We have been married for 41 years and first went to Venice together over 30 years ago. I had visited the city in the 1960's and always wanted to return. Bruce retired, several years ago, from chemistry research and I have been a volunteer for Westminster Abbey for 30 years. I design the kneelers and see them through until they are finished and in situ. My time with the Abbey will be sadly coming to an end within the next year.
Why Mrs Johanna Olby chose Venice-Murano-Burano
Having a garden is a bonus. Having the boat stop close by has proved to be invaluable.
Children not allowed
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
A Venetian Home From Home
This is a lovely comfortable flat situated in a quiet part of Venice, yet conveniently close to all amenities. We love it - and the fact that we return year after year perhaps says it all! We wouldn’t consider staying anywhere else. There are great places to eat nearby, shopping is easy, access to the airport and/or the islands is just round the corner, and having one’s own garden to relax in is gift on a hot day. It is thanks to Johanna and Bruce that we are privileged to be able to perch on the edge of Venetian life for a few short weeks each year.
The owners of this apartment have obviously doted on it. Not only is everything new or in top notch condition, furniture and decorations are of a quality to please owners when they stay there, not just renters. Although not guaranteed, we found most of the basic necessities there - salt, pepper, oil, vinegar, etc. The bed, a true double, was one of the best we’ve found in our travels. The location is very convenient for taking vaporetti to the outer islands.
I am so pleased that you found the new mattresses comfortable. We have found that a good bed is essential after a long day walking in Venice.
Lovely spacious apartment
Thankyou for providing such a lovely place for us to use as a base for our short but lovely visit to Venice. We thoroughly enjoyed it..even the rain! An ideal location.
Thank you, we think we are very fortunate to be so close to the boats and restaurants. Knowing I have not far to arrive home from the boat stop is a blessing after a long day sightseeing.
The property is impressive, beautiful, comfortable, convenient, well equipped - lovely garden too
We had the most amazing stay in Venice. The flat was excellent and exceeded our expectations by miles. We had everything we needed. With the water bus stop just round the corner, wonderful local shops and restaurants, a quiet neighbourhood and an easy and interesting walk to St Mark's Square, the location could not be more perfect. The owners were very helpful with all the relevant information easy available. We will hopefully be returning in the not too distant future.
Receiving such kind comments makes the hard work worthwhile. We look forward to you returning in the future.
A wonderful place to stay in Venice
We have stayed in this apartment many times and would not consider anywhere else. Johanna has thought of everything needed to make guests feel comfortable and at home. The flat is spacious and well-appointed, it is conveniently located just steps from the lagoon, there are nice places to eat nearby and good local shops. This is a lovely quiet, 'ordinary' part of Venice - no shops full of tourist tat, no crowds, just daily Venetian life going on all around. One could not ask for more! We’re already planning for next year!
Perfect Venice Visit
This is our fifth stay in this apartment, which says it all! Perfect location, beautiful home from home, everything that you need for a great trip
We have owned this apartment for 21 years and it is ideally situated for the Airport water bus and water buses to the islands, station and other parts of Venice.
The Alilaguna boat from the airport stops on the Fondamenta, over a bridge and then two minutes from the apartment. Boats from the Station and Pizzale Roma stop on the Fondamenta.
The apartment has basic food shopping, milk, bread, fish and wine close by. Two supermarkets 5 minutes away.
Several bars and restaurants on the Fondamenta Nuove and others within 3-4 minutes.
Rialto is 7 minutes away on foot and St. Marks a few minutes longer.
