“Ideal location for exploring Venice by foot”

This is a well equipped and bright appartment in an ideal location with a view to San Giovanni e Paolo from an open terrace. It's in easy walking distance of the fondamente nove and the touristy bits of Venice in the San Marco sestiere.

The owners look after guests very well and react immediately and constructively to all queries and questions.

However be warned that the locals meet in a lively bar right opposite and there is a high noise level from pedestrian traffic just below the windows. Thankfully the windows are double glazed.

“a great apartment in an ideal location”
Reviewed 10 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We stayed for 8 nights at the end of August. This is not a place that was bought to be a rental...the owner lived there until her family outgrew the space . There is a marble-studded continuous floor, 2-position tall windows throughout, an air conditioner that keeps the bedroom right all night and the rest of the space comfortable all day. The bathroom is completely tiled in green, the fridge kept my chinotto cold, and the front loading washer saved me a trip to a laundry. The space is full of shelving, and there are lots of decorative glass pieces scattered about. There is a TV, and a full stereo system (even a turntable!), with Bose speakers mounted on the wall. The ceilings are part exposed beams, and the terrace is a great place to sit and watch life go by. This is a cut above most rental apartments. The only drawback is a rather weak and undependable WiFi signal which comes from municipal service in the Campo across the bridge rather than from a router in the apartment. Reception is best on the terrace.
The neighborhood is an ideal base for a Venice trip. There are 2 vaporetto (water bus) stops within easy walking distance, and the basilica and campo of Sts Giovanni and Paulo are huge and impressively beautiful. You can count on getting completely lost if you walk around much, but you'll always find the way back to an apartment that is right next to such a visible, well-known landmark. There is a well stocked grocery nearby, (the Co-op in Campo Santa Marina), and good coffee, good gelato, and a real Venetian meal are all within a block. This being Venice, there are plenty of tourists walking by and gathering across the bridge in the campo, but it is a relatively quiet place compared to the bedlam around St Mark's and the Rialto areas.
We took boats to Murano, Burano, the cemetery island, and Lido, as well as several rides around the city. Buy a pass when you arrive and ride anywhere at will. And after a busy day exploring, if you take my advice and rent this apartment, you will come home to a stylish, comfortable place to stay.

The days in Venice we have enjoyed in Sabrina's apartment in many quiet ways: The welcoming, loving amenities and the excellent location of the apartment - and especially the warm and reliable assistance by Sabrina. We have felt ourselves very well and we are pleased to recommend the apartment further.

We spent Christmas in this lovely apartment right on the Rio di Mendicanti and facing the church of SS Giovanni e Paolo. It was quite magical. The apartment is comfortable and easy to use, and a short walk from the vaporetti services. Sabrina and Paolo were very helpful as others have commented.

Just a perfect spot as the other reviewers have said. Immaculate, tasteful, and cozy. Close to shopping, vaporetto stop, and all you could want in a place to get away in the midst of a beautiful exciting city. We won't hesitate to return. Thank you Sabrina!

Sabrina and her husband were absolutely wonderful to work with prior to and during our stay. We had our account frozen when our bank thought our ATM withdraw was fraudulent and Sabrina was very understanding and worked with us on the deposit. The apartment has everything you will need. Sabrina has stocked it so that you have olive oil and coffee and various other amenities to make your stay more enjoyable. She gave step by step directions to the apartment from several vaporetto stops so that we never got lost. She provided a binder with useful information regarding restaurants, sites and manuals for the appliances. Having a washing machine was a major plus! The location of the apartment is ideal- it is right off of a major vaporetto stop and near some fantastic restaurants. There is a church you can visit steps from the apartment and in case of an emergency you are steps away from a pronto soccorso (emergency room). There is a grocer nearby for you to purchase items to make your own meals and Sabrina has stocked the kitchen with plenty of pans and spatulas to make it easy for you to choose this option for some or all of your meals. The apartment is not in the tourist section so it is very quiet at night- leading to great nights of sleep! The internet was also a great feature- we were able to call our bank using GoogleTalk and then call our parents to wish them Buon Natale! Thank you so much for a wonderful stay Sabrina- we can't wait to come back and stay again. Next time we are in Venice, we will most definitely book this apartment again.

“Will make your stay in Venice wonderful!”
Reviewed 14 September 2013 for a stay in September 2012

This is the ideal location for a stay in Venice. Away from the high traffic touristy spots, you can view Venetian life pass you by as you watch from the (rare) large balcony. You can see mother's with strollers, school kids on their way to school, local's taking their cappuccino at the little cafe's below, and of course, the occasional tourist staring at a map (lol). The apartment itself is just what anyone would need. Lots of space, all the amenities. When I go back to Venice, I am hoping this place will be available. You can get to San Marco in about 10-15 mins (depending on your route). Because this is across a small canal from the hospital, it makes it easier to make your way back to the apartment if you just look for signs that direct you to the hospital. Can't wait to return to this magical place! Here is a little video I took from the apartment:
