As most people have said before - Tom is a great guy, very friendly, helpful and very good english speaker also. He made sure I knew where everything was, how to catch the bus to Venice, where to buy tickets etc etc. Apartment clean, safe and good, Tom provided some basic food stuffs and wine to get me started. I stayed for the whole month of February as I was working close by on a contract - no problems at all. Very convenient location, and the pizza place on the corner does great pizza. Would definitely book again if and when I am back
We traveled as a family, and stayed in No stress apartment for 7 days. Tom's friend Veronica wait for us in the apartment for checking in. Tom and Veronica were so kind and very helpful during our stay. We were always in touch for any matter. The apartment is nice and comfortable. It has everything you need. It is in a great location, just next to the train station, which was very convenient for traveling to Venice and to any other near town, especially with the baby strollers since there is more space than in the bus.
We would recommend it to anyone.
What a terrific guy Tom is .
We went out of the way to explain to us the major attractions and how to get there , the best & the most economical way to see Venice including a 2 Euro Gondola ride . He spent at least an hour giving us details and made our Visit to Venice a most pleasant experience
Tom by far has been one of the best host we have had. He spent over an hour helping us plan what we should do in Venice. Tom's guide book and instructions was way better then any map or gps. Our train schedule changed 3 time that day due to train delays and he was so patient and understanding. He was so sweet, he picked us up from the train station and left wine and enough food for two meals in the fridge!
The apartment has everything you will need and the location was a 10min bus ride into Venice island and 3min walk from Mestre train station. The area appears to look dangerous but is 100% safe, it's just not overly developed yet (think train tracks and parking lots and apartments). There isn't much to do right by the apartment unless u walk about 10 blocks out. We used it as a base to the islands and that was perfect for us! This apartment was a great value for it's price! Definitely will book with Tom again!
Un hôte d'exception dans une ville d'exception! Voyageurs, voyageuses, rares sont les accueils de cette qualité! Nous recommandons très vivement cet appartement tout proche du centre historique de Venise, tenu par un hôte du plus grand sérieux et de la plus grande gentillesse. L'appartement est très bien situé, parfaitement propre et très lumineux. Nous remercions très chaleureusement Tom pour ce magnifique séjour! Alla prossima volta!
Первое, что хотелось бы отметить- Том очень хорошо говорит по русски. Ещё он очень пунктуальный и добросовестный человек. Встретил, всё показал и рассказал- как чем пользоваться, что обязательно посетить за два дня, помог купить проездные на транспорт, был постоянно на связи. Сама квартира в идеальном состоянии, есть всё необходимое для проживания. Кроме того холодильник был забит свежими итальянскими продуктами, причём Том сказал, что это всё для нас и мы всем этим можем пользоваться. Месторасположение тоже идеальное. Остановка автобуса в аэропорт реально 30 секунд от дома. Остановка в Венецию - 3 минуты от дома. Время проезда до площади Рима- 10-12минут. В общем проживание у Тома оставило только положительные впечатления. Всем советую. Соотношение цена-качество идеальное.
Fantastic apartment with everything you need within walking distance including buses, trains and all transport and tickets to Venice Central. Only a 10-15 bus ride away and buses going constantly. Tom was a wonderful host, stocking up the pantry and fridge for our late check in. The wifi is super speedy and there are heaps of supermarkets, eateries nearby. Great place and highly recommended.
