Our second visit to this flat.We had a cold ten days and three of them were very wet.The flat was warm,welcoming and comfortable.It's position near Piazza Santa Margarita with its vegetable and fish stalls,cafes,bars,gelaterie and wine shop plus the best cake shop in Venice just over the bridge is excellent for us.There is a bakers next to the entrance to the Calle for fresh rolls for breakfast .The small supermarket in PM isn't great but it's not far to Conad by San Basilio vaporetto stop.We have stayed in Venice 20 times now and in about 15 apartments and really like everything about this.It suits us down to the ground.We will come back hopefully next year.
The location of Miranda is really good, very close to San Maria Gloriosa dei Frari and Scuola Grande Di San Rocco. A short walk to the Vaporetta stop San Toma. One is surrounded by restaurants and bars and everything that one needs is close at hand. The apartment is spacious and really well kitted out, everything one needs to have a really comfy stay. Fairly close to Piazzale Roma, handy for short walk to the apartment if one takes the bus from the airport into Venice, although would recommend arriving in style in a Water Taxi right to the waterside door. Would really recommend this apartment and the communication from the team at Truly Venice is very good.
We stayed at Miranda for 8 nights and really enjoyed our stay. Lovely IKEA minimalist decor which suited us. The beds were great and the company helped us when we realised there were all feather pillows and my son is allergic to them - someone bought new pillows that night and got them to us. (NB we now remember when booking!) The canal was lovely to sit by on the small balcony and watch the work boats in the morning. There was a bar opposite but it always closed at a reasonable time. The bridge nearby was noisy one evening but not too late. This was a superb apartment and we will return on our next visit. It's in a lovely area - lots of interesting restaurants, quirky shops and squares to visit - yet walkable from the station. One final delight was getting into a water taxi from the balcony/dock and straight to the airport - great fun and worth the 120 euros.
We had an extended stay at Miranda for three weeks in May 2017. It has a perfect location – on a side canal, away from the tourist mecca of San Marco, close enough to get almost anywhere in half an hour, quiet and yet surrounded by restaurants and nightlife. There are many restaurant recommendations from Truly Venice and the owners. Our favourites were La Zucca and the Enoteca Ai Artisti (not to be confused with the Artisti bar nearby).
The apartment is modern and comfortable with every convenience. We had no noise from the apartment above, which only half-overlaps with Miranda below. The small bar on the opposite side of the canal was lively until about 11pm when it closed and the Scuola San Rocco (don’t miss) across the canal loaded concert equipment into boats in the middle of the night a couple of times. However the opportunity to watch the daily life of the city on our little canal from our own balcony and windows was wonderful.
No toiletries or consumables are provided by Truly Venice which is a little disappointing but a couple of small supermarkets are nearby. In all other respects Truly Venice were quietly efficient and we had no complaints. The owners document flood precautions and I would have a slight concern about this in the winter although the new lagoon barriers should be finished soon. It would be worth checking with Truly Venice about their back-up plans.
Neither bathroom is ensuite but for Venice this is an unusually light and spacious apartment. We would recommend it highly.
Don’t miss the Traghetto (ferry) close to the nearest Vaporetto stop at San Toma. It’s the cheapest gondola ride in Venice at 2 Euros and takes you across the Grand Canal to San Marco. We would also recommend trying one of the Venice walking tours whose guides can tell you many fascinating facts about the city not found in the guidebooks.
This is the 11th property we have rented in Venice and ranks as one of the best. Light, well-equipped and comfortable ground floor apartment with modern furniture in good location near the Frari as well as close to restaurants, bakers and other amenities. Vaporetto stop and station within easy reach . Sitting out on small landing stage by canal an added bonus.
The photos of the apartment on the website looked too good to be true but the reality was even better. The views from all of the rooms were absolutely stunning and it was lovely sitting out on the terrace watching the boats go by and enjoying the views.
The apartment was perfectly situated -you could get to all the major attractions really quickly but it was really lovely and quiet in the surrounding area.
We will definitely be booking another hopefully longer stay in the future
We stayed at the Miranda apartment for three nights and it was perfect for our family of 5. The location was great - not too touristy with nice morning walks to the sites. The location on the canal was amazing. We had coffee and pastry out on the canal every morning. They were even filming something on the nearby campo one morning so we were able to watch the comings and goings of crew and equipment for a bit!
The apartment had everything we needed for our 3 night stay and the market was a short 2 bridge walk away - a cart was even provided! An early morning walk to the Rialto market for fresh seafood provided us with a wonderful meal one evening.
Thomas was very helpful at check-in providing us with recommendations for restaurants, shopping, site-seeing, etc. The Miranda was a wonderful apartment and we will definitely stay here again when we return to Venice!!
