The Fondamenta Nove is a relatively clean and well furnished apartment. It's location is close to the touristic heart of Venice; water bus terminals, restaurants, and attractions are all within walking distance.
We were warmly greeted upon arrival and given navigational tips to make our stay more enjoyable.
Our only real inconvenience was the size of the shower room (it's a bit too small for comfort). Otherwise, we would recommend!
Best location for us: within walking distance of main attractions but away from the hoards and very near the water front. Air conditioning wonderful and functioned very well. Paulo made us feel very welcome and gave us many useful tips that enabled us to make the most of our short stay.
Paolo is a great host. He picked us up from the taxi stop and even helped my wife and her sister by carrying their luggage. The condo is clean, modern, well organized and functional. We had plenty of clean, white towels for the four of us. We stayed three nights and it was our best and final rental after a three week trip through Italy and Southern France. As others noted, Paolo's place is very conveniently located near the water taxi stop. There are plenty of restaurants and bakeries nearby. Groceries are also fairly near. Paolo has written instructions clearly spelling out how to use all appliances which include induction cooking, dishwasher and a clothes washer/dryer combo. He even included a by-the-numbers map marking great places to eat and shop or visit. We would definetly stay here again and will recommend it to our friends without hesitation.
An excellent location close to the Vaporetto stop Fondamente Nove, supermarkets and restaurants.
It was ideal for our family of five. The apartment was clean, well equipped, with spacious bedrooms.
It's also ideal for exploring the main attractions in Venice, and the other nearby islands, including the Lido and Murano.
Paolo was a great host, very easy to deal with and welcoming.
We'd happily stay there again.
We travel to Venice for 4 days with two adults and one 7 years old children. This flat was a perfect choice for us. Clean, modern, very well equipped and perfectly located in the north of Venice (2min to Fundamente Nuove). Very friendly owner provided us in advance with perfect travel information, picked us up at the bus stop, escorted us to the flat and had perfect restaurant- and shopping tips for us. I can recommend the lessor and the apartment without restriction.
We stayed here with another couple for 3 days in December 2016. Our cruise ship was delayed so we didn't get in until after 11pm. During this time Paolo, the owner, stayed in contact with us and when we finally arrived he met us at the vaporetto stop which is very close to the apartment. He even took the time to walk us to the nearest place to eat since we were quite hungry. This apartment is ideally situated with easy access to a lovely coffee bar/bakery on the corner, the vaporetto, and shopping, included both an open-air market and a grocery store. It has everything needed, including a one wall kitchen with utensils, cooking equipment, coffee maker, electric hot water pot, induction cooktop, fridge, dishwasher, and a washer/dryer in the bathroom. There was plenty of hot water in the shower, and the beds were comfortable - a must for me. The photos on the listing were accurate, the location perfect (the vaporetto was just steps away), it was clean and warm, Paolo was delightful, and I would highly recommend staying here.
Even before we arrived at the apartment I had fallen in love with the proprietor Paolo. He was always very prompt with emails when we had a question and most impressive of all he quickly refunded our funds that we had overpaid, partially by an error on my part and partially because we had paid summer rates instead of winter. I really respected his honesty regarding the reduced off season rates. It was a correction that we would never have caught.
So I was not surprised with his patience in meeting us at the Vap stop at 11:00 PM when we originally were expected to arrive in the AM. Regardless of the late hour he went over not just the apartment in detail but his recommendation of restaurants. Then at 11:30 PM he and his companion took us through the narrow streets of Venice in search of a restaurant for our dinner. It was so romantic!! (Our cruise ship had been unable to dock in Venice which turned the entire day upside down.)
The apartment was extremely clean and neat. The kitchen well stocked with cooking and eating utensils. The beds were very comfortable. The bathroom tidy and shower easy to operate and large enough.
The location is excellent. A few steps from a coffee and pastry cafe and a few more steps to the vap. stop. Not far were many restaurants, shops, a super market and an open air vegetable market. The apartment is within easy access to the sites of Venice but off the tourist path, a place where one can experience the true heart of Venice. For me that is what I liked best about the apartment. As Venice is a very compact city one can have the best of both worlds, quietness and tourist attractions.
In all respects the unit far exceeded our expectations.
And we did eat at Paolo's recommended restaurants all of which were excellent.
We would highly recommend the apartment to a friend and would return if we ever find ourselves back in Venice.
