Title We spent 2 nights in this apartment - 2 adults and 1 child. We all agreed that the stay should have been longer. Although the weather was average, the layout and amenities of the apartment made up for it. Beautiful little balcony over the water to enjoy a drink while watching th e boats on the canal. Stefano provided plenty of easy to follow instructions to get to the apartment and entry was easy. The welcome bottle of Prosseco was appreciated. The apartment is just far enough away from the hustle of the main tourisT areas to be quiet and the bed in the main room is extremely comfortable. Everything you need for self catering is available making the apartment suitable for longer stays. We will be back for our return trip to Venice.
Perfect stay. Was a bit confused about the phone opening the gate but re-read the instructions and then we got it. Lovely place, lots of room, adored the balcony.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Stefano's apartment, it was exactly what we were looking for, so perfect. Our balcony on the canal was a highlight and novelty and we spent lots of time watching the boats go by out there. The apartment was beautiful and complemented Venice perfectly with interesting artworks on the walls within. We were walking distance from everything while at the same time, away from the loud, touristy areas so it was very peaceful and serene. The apartment was well equipped, we had everything we needed. The check in/out process was seamless thanks to Stefano's information. He also provided us with excellent details in relation to reaching the apartment and information about Venice in general. We had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend this apartment.
From booking through the owner, Stefano, to the spotless, beautifully renovated apartment in this quiet area of Venice, we couldn't have asked for a better experience. A three minute walk from the water shuttle stop at del Orto, it was easy to find via the excellent directions. We were met at the gate of the small courtyard by a lovely lady, Lucia, who showed us around and how everything worked. A street away (1 min) and over a tiny bridge lay a wonderful bakery for our breakfast treats, and a wonderful friendly, lively 'locals' canalside bar serving wonderful beers and fresh nibbles even closer. We were five minutes from the tourist routes yet could have been a million miles away. I'd recommend this place to anyone - and made so much easier and better by the brilliant communication from Stefano who was so happy to help and give the advice to ensure that our stay was the best it could possibly be. A magical spot in a magical city.
Our family of 6 stayed for 12 nights over the holidays and all agreed it was an amazing trip! Stefano was extremely helpful and accessible. The apartment was in a neighborhood with a more residential feel, which we loved, while still being close enough to everything that we saw a tremendous amount of Venice. Everything was comfortable and clean and there are some lovely restaurants nearby. We would love to visit again!
The apartment is situated in a really quiet back street but it only took us 10 minutes to walk to a shopping area that had everything you could need, including a bank, supermarkets, clothes shops, restaurants etc. (this doesn't include all of the small shops on the way). The apartment itself was very tastefully decorated, had all the appliances you need and the heating kept the place nice and warm (essential given it was freezing outside). Stefano left easy to follow instructions and was very easy to contact. Venice was a short stop over for us in between destinations and we were traveling with a small boy,heaps of luggage and it could have been a nightmare - instead we got to stay in a really nice apartment, that felt like home !
