“Just perfect”

The place is perfect.
I think I had the greatest impression from sets of cups and glasses. After not a small numbers of apartments I rented before I was really surprised to see such the variety. There were cups for espresso, cappuccino, tea, glasses for water, wine, whiskey etc.. And those were not occasional residues but full sets for four persons.
Well, for those who does not relate to glasses only I can still say that the apartment was excellent from position to equipping, from relationship of the host to the view from the windows.
Note that reality is as on the pictures. As well as the placement is pointed on the google map correctly. The "Ca Galina" is positioned in a quiet corner, just over the channel. But you need to walk less than 100 meters in order to get to a public street with shops, restaurants etc.
A really good supermarket is 3 minutes far from the building. Not the Walmart, but you can find there everything you can need while your travel to Venice.
Also I'd like to sign that when you arrive to the apartment from the F.Novo vaporetto station, you walk by non-touristic streets, there are no crowds that hamper you and your cases.
Although the apartment is in very quiet corner, it is in very strategic place. Just about ten minutes of a walk from Rialto and something like that from San Marco. Just 5-6 minutes from the F.Novo station from which you can a vaporetto to Murano and Burano islands.
The apartment is perfectly equipped. Two isolated bedrooms allow the parents to sleep not together with children. And nobody should sleep in the living room. The kitchen is perfectly equipped. There are enough plates of different sizes, spoons, forks and knifes. Pots and pans. Electric kettle, microwave, stove with oven.
There is conditioner (we didn't use it as there was not harm at the end of September) and local heating (that we used).
One of most important things today: WiFi WORKS GOOD.
And the last but not less important thing is host. Massimo was not less perfect than his "Ca Galina" :-). He met us near the building, showed and explained everything. He prepared a map where he signed routes and interesting places. About some of them I even did not hear before but they were really worthwhile to visit.
We didn't need to refer to Massimo while our staying but he was absolutely available when we prepared to the trip and at the arrival day. I suppose, there would not be a problem to turn to him any time. Especially that he lives and works not far from the apartments.
The bottom line, I have just words of admiration about the apartment and words of appreciation to Massimo.

“Sensational apartment with a terrific host”
Reviewed 27 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

It is clear straight away once you meet Massimo that he is a passionate citizen of Venice who sincerely wants you to love and enjoy this amazing city. He took considerable time showing us the key locations (as well as some hidden gems) and provided us with detailed maps (and umbrellas!) to ensure we could maximise our time here. Our family of 4 were more than comfortable in this 2nd floor apartment and Massimo's restaurant and gelato shop recommendations were spot on. After visiting several apartments booked through Trip Advisor, we definitely feel that an excellent host makes a huge difference to how you can enjoy and appreciate the location and Massimo is a great example of this. We loved Venice all the more because our hosts enthusiasm was just so infectious. Thankyou Massimo - we will never forget Venice and hope to return to Ca Gallina one day.

“Great apartment, great host”
Reviewed 20 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

This apartment was excellent and its position couldn't have been better, being in a quiet location but close to all the amenities. It exceeded all our expectations.
Massimo was also an excellent host, meeting us from the vaporetto as it was quite late and dark on our arrival. The information he provided was invaluable and we had a wonderful time celebrating our golden wedding anniversary.
We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this apartment as a place to stay.

“Ca Gallina”
Reviewed 9 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

The flat had everything we needed for a comfortable stay in Venice. It was perfectly located close to attractions and a short walk to the boat to the airport and train station. Massimo was an excellent host!! He was waiting for us when we arrived and provided a map with highlighted places to visit, restauraunts, etc. I highly recommend this flat!

Apartment is in perfect location, a 15 walk from St Marks Square and close to all facilities.

The absolute star is Massimo who completely made our trip! He gave me invaluable advice when still at the planning stages and then when we arrived he gave us so much excellent information and a detailed map where he had marked so many useful things and walking tours we could do ourselves. Thanks to him we went to the best restaurants and all the best non-tourist places. I cannot thank him enough for a wonderful stay.
We hope to come back to Venice one day and will certainly seek out Massimo and his lovely apartment. Thank you!
