I stayed at this apartment with my wife and our two friends.The owner,Anna, met us at San Stae vaporetto stop and walked us to the aparment. Once inside over a glass of prosecco and nibbles which Anna supplied she explained everything we needed to know about the aparment and the local area plus good places to eat and drink.The aparment is spotless, well equipped and is situatated in a non-touristy location but at the same time within walking distance of the main sightseeing locations Rialto/St Marks etc. Having stayed in Venice on many occasions I would have no hesitation in recommending this as an ideal apartment to stay in and we will certainly be returning. Thanks again to Anna.
We just had 3 night in Venice, 2 full days was as not enough and I would hope to be back and stay at Anna's accommodation. The accommodation is in an excellent position for seeing the sights yet still feeling like a local. It is easy to locate local fresh food.
Anna our host made us feel comfortably at home. She was really helpful with tips around the city for transport and the history of Venice.
I appreciated the extra attentive attention she gave us along with her enthusiasm for Venice as a local herself. I could not have asked for a better host and will return to Venice and stay at her accommodation again. Thanks Anna
My family of four enjoyed our recent stay in Anna and Donato's apartment in Santa Croce with its comfortable bedrooms and charming fully renovated kitchen, views into neighboring gardens and tucked away in a quiet residential area of Venice. Just a few minutes walk from the Rialto markets and bridge, and like other reviewers noted, close to several good restaurants, small shops, and many cafes. Large updated bathroom for the family with a washer was great. There is a smaller second bathroom too. My favorite times were spent in the kitchen making Italian coffee for the first time, enjoying Anna's homemade gallette, and cooling down with the A/C! Venice has so many tourists, esp. in the summer, so you will be happy to stay in quieter area while still being close to shopping and sites. Graced with the warm hospitality and kindness of Anna and Donato, this apartment was a great choice for our first-time visit to Venice. Grazie Anna!
A beautiful apartment furnished with antiques handed down from generations in the owner's family. A lovely quiet location with lots of shops, bakery and restaurants within a 5 minutes walk. As lovely as the apartment was, Anna, (owner) was an absolute delight and made our trip so memorable! She met us at the vaporetto stop and guided us to the apartment giving us some of the history of the area along the way. Awaiting us at the apartment was some of her homemade tiramisu along with some bread and milk to get us started. The night before we left she met us for a tour of some of the 'backstage' of Venice (as she called it) and lead us through some incredible places and sights - ending the evening with a 'spritz' on a little bridge! Anna was an absolute delight and certainly made our visit to Venice special!
A well presented apartment. Anna was welcoming and informative on local amenities , everything worked , c omfy beds and well equipped kitchen. I recommend this as a base for exploring Venice and as A retreat from the nearby hustle and bustle.
More written instructions would be good, we arrived after a long journey and found it hard to take in all the useful things Anna was willing to share . But overall this was a very good experience
We had a really great stay. The apartment is in a really interesting area full of lovely restaurants, near bakeries, supermarket and the fish market. Anna is the perfect host and showed us places Venetians go to which made it all so much more special. Touches like quite a few basics in the kitchen were very welcome. Thank you Anna for your kindness. We will be back.
Anna is very helpful and gave us detail information before we arrive Venice. The apartment was perfect for 4 of us and she walked around with us to the restaurants which provide delicious food in a very good price.
We all have an unforgettable trip in Venice and wish to thank Anna for making our stay so comfortable.
