Wonderful property in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 4 days in this home during our visit in Venice. We are a family of 4. The property was comfortable, well appointed and quite beautiful - really loved the exposed beams and wood stairway. It's located off a main street with really good access to services, restaurants and goods. Once you have your bearings, it's a very short walk to major sights, and also close enough to get to more local activities like the fish market. Fantastic AC in this property as well which was really important for us. Highly recommended and we would definitely stay there again.

Wonderful little house in the heart of Venice

  • 5 of 5

Amid the glorious waterways, Venice can be a rabbit warren of narrow, often confusing, little streets. Down one of these, is a small three-story house in the center of the action. It is off a main street that dead ends with a private house so it is quieter than most. The location is great with many lovely restaurants and grocers nearby and a short walk from San Marco, the Rialto Bridge, and the waterfront. My adult son and I stayed there and thoroughly enjoyed it. I gave him the big bedroom on the second floor and I took the small twin bedded room on the top floor - and loved it! The renovated bathroom is very spacious. This comfortable house, if on the dark side, is simply furnished and has everything one needs. The owner, Ilaria, couldn't have been more helpful. I would love to stay here again.

Great location, lots of room

  • 4 of 5

You were ten minutes from the major sites of venice. The living room had plenty of room. We were there in late June, it was almost 90 degrees. The largest bedroom did not have direct access to air conditioning so was a little warm at night. The rest of the house was very comfortable. We had trouble controlling the shower temperature. The bathroom was very roomy. Everything was clean.

Great location between St. Mark's and Rialto Bridge

  • 5 of 5

If you don't know Venice particularly well, this is a great location in the heart of much of what is Venice. Easy walk to shopping and sightseeing. Also a good location for getting a vaporetto to anywhere you want to go. The apartment was comfortable, and the owners very helpful. I would rent here again if the occasion arises.

nice, very convenient, but with some problems

  • 3 of 5

there is good news and bad news. first the good: you couldn't find better hosts than ilaria and marco. they made use feel very welcome, starting at rialto, with a free wine. they were responsive to any questions and concerns. the unit itself is very nice and comfortable. the kitchen is adequate to cooking, but not baking. the large bedroom is great, spacious and comfortable. the smaller room is just fine. the bathroom is large and comfortable. my wife and I especially liked the large double sink. there were towels aplenty. the location is great. an easy walk takes you to san marco, and many other attractions. all amenities are nearby, including an outdoor greengrocer a few steps away; a bakery next door; a laundry a few steps; several coffe bars, restaurants, a supermarket, a pharmacy, a great bookstore, and even a very nice gondola stop. and now the bad news: the easy bad news is that there is not enough hot water flow to take a bath. I was not able even to fill the tub 1/5 full. a shower was adequate but not terrific. the hard bad news is the commercial bakery just across the 5 foot stone lane, just across from the unit. note that venice is composed of stone canyons; narrow lanes surrounded by tall stone buildings. therefore, sounds echo and are amplified. the bakers start at 11 pm and work all night. unfortunately, they leave their door open, right across from the unit. therefore, all night you will hear the clanging and scraping of pans; the banging of whatever; the arguments of the men. if they would keep their door closed, it might be ok. but, when I politely asked them to close the door they were sort of rude and indicated that it has to be open to help cool the pans of baked goods. that's fine for them, but not fine for guests of this unit. even with the shutters closed, the noise was a significant issue.

so, overall, I really liked the unit. I suspect ilaria will take care of the bathroom flow problem. however, the commercial noise problem seems

insoluble. for many people this unit will be very nice. but for light sleepers, it's better to look elsewhere.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest I am sorry you had some problems with the bakery. the noise , as you said, happens when they have their door open. I know you decided to sleep in the living room, and the noise can be heard from there because it is on the ground floor. I never recommend to sleep in the living room. The only way to avoid the noise is to close the shutters at the window.I lived in that apartment for 6 years after starting to rent is and I heard no noise with the shutters closed. The hot water works well. it was just a problem of pressure while you were there. We just fixed it when you left

Very comfortable,clean and terrific location!

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of four adults traveling together and this apartment was very comfortable. The location was perfect for getting out and seeing the attractions as well as having a bakery close by, grocery store, many restaurants and shops. The owner was always helpful with answering any questions we had. We had a few hot days during our visit so the air conditioning in the apartment made us very comfortable. We even had our college age granddaughter vist with us for several nights and the space worked out well,we all were very comfortable. We would highly recommend this apartment.
