The Space

LOCATION: This fully renovated (yet 500 year old) first floor flat is located near the beautiful Zattere waterfront and 5 minutes from the Accademia bridge and Gallery, Peggy Guggenheim museum and the Salute church. The Zattere and Accademia vaporetto stops are only 5 minutes away. San Mark's square is just a few vaporetto stops away or a pleasant 30 minute walk through the winding streets of Venice. A fully stocked supermarket can be found 10 minutes away by foot along with a variety of restaurants to choose from.

Neighborhood is quiet day and night with the pleasant sound of people chatting and footsteps as people walk by.

  • The location of Leda 's apartment is excellent - in a quiet street away from the crowded tourist areas yet very convenient to both the Accademia and zattera vaporetta stops. Staying there gives the feeling of being a little bit Venetian and less of a visitor.

    The apartment was spotlessly clean. It works well for two/three but would be a bit crowded for four unless children used the bunk room (two small for two adults). However, the beds are exquisitely comfortable and guarantee a blissful night's sleep. The kitchen was fairly well equipped but would benefit greatly from having wine glasses, more mugs, glasses and bowls, a kettle and decent chopping knives and indeed a chopping board. The bathroom was good and had plenty of hot water. It was downstairs - no problem for us but might be a disadvantage for young, old or less able-bodied visitors.

    Leda was very helpful and friendly and kept in touch by text during our week there to check if we needed anything.

  • Nettes kleines Appartement. Großes Elternschlafzimmer, wirklich kleines Kinderzimmer mit Stockbetten. Sehr sauber. Eingang und Badezimmer im Erdgeschoss, recht steile, enge Treppe in 1. Stock zur restlichen Wohnung. Schöne Lage in Dorsoduro, 2 Vaporetto-Stationen schnell zu erreichen (Accademia + Zattere), ca. 10 Minuten zum Billa-Supermarkt. Leda hat uns am Vaporetto abgeholt und die Wohnung erklärt, hat alles problemlos geklappt. Sehr gutes Preis-Leistungsverhältnis, empfehlenswert !

  • We had a wonderful stay in Leda's apartment. It was in a perfect location. Nice and close to all the places a tourist would want to see, yet situated in a quiet neighbourhood. Leda arranged for a driver to meet us at the airport upon our arrival. Even though we arrived an hour late, he was still there waiting for us with a sign. Leda met us at the drop off point and walked us to the apartment (only 10 minutes away). Thanks, Leda! We had an excellent stay. It was nice to be able to cook our own meals too. Highly recommend.

  • The arrangements for our stay in the apartment went very smoothly and Leda met us at the vaporetto stop as planned. The information provided about the apartment and location is comprehensive and very helpful. The apartment is in a very quiet residential part of Venice, but yet most places are easily walkable without worrying about traffic (which is one of the great joys of Venice). The apartment was clean and comfortable without being luxurious, but suited us as a family with 2 kids. The ground floor dampness mentioned in other reviews in the ground floor didn't really cause any problems. By nature, being in a narrow alleyway, there is not much natural light in the apartment, but we spent most of the daylight hours out and about, so that is not a major problem.Overall, we had a great holiday and enjoyed living (a bit) like Venetians for a few days, away from the milling crowds of the more touristy parts of this beautiful and fascinating city.

  • Un contact avant le voyage et un accueil sur place charmant de la part de la propriétaire. Appartement pas très grand mais parfait pour notre famille de 4 (2 adultes et 2 enfants), très propre et extrêmement bien situé, dans une partie calme du Dorsoduro, à 10/15 minutes à pieds de la Punta della Dogana (Fondation Pinault), du musée Peggy Guggenheim et du Ponte dell' Accademia.

  • Leda has a wonderful place in Venice. This is (was) a family home, so it's very accommodating to any family who wishes to stay there. We had a very pleasant experience in Venice, thanks to Leda's knowledge of the area and assistance.

    She also has great knowledge of local healthy options (gluten free/vegetarian), so I strongly suggest taking advantage of that if it's of interest as in my case my wife is a vegetarian. I cannot stress enough that the host was very, very helpful in making our stay as smooth as possible - from entry to coordinating the taxi to return to the airport.

  • Great apartment, great host. The apartment is located in a quiet part of Dorsoduro, well away from the tourist paths but only minutes from Accademia bridge and a short vaporetto ride from San Marco and the other essential sights. We (couple plus 2 teenage daughters) stayed for 6 nights in September 2013. Well before our flight to Venice, Leda had provided us with several transport options from the airport. We accepted her offer to book a taxi to take us (on land) to San Basilio, where she would meet us. We had trouble finding the driver at the airport, and phoned Leda for assistance. She immediately contacted the taxi company and we found the driver a few minutes later. Leda was untroubled by our late arrival at San Basilio. She walked us to the apartment. The apartment is clean and well equipped and Leda gave detailed instructions for everything. She had prepared a very useful house guide and gave us several tips for local restaurants and shops and help with vaporetto routes. She also provided a basket of refreshments and fresh milk in the fridge. When we left, Leda arranged for a taxi to take us to the airport and later phoned the company to check that we had not missed the driver. Our SMS to her on departure in the taxi had not reached her and she went out of her way to make sure that we had not been stranded. The combination of excellent apartment, excellent location and excellent host makes this the place to stay in Venice!

  • The location was wonderful -- not touristy but with easy access to everything. Leda was a great host. Easy communications. The apartment was well provisioned. Our only issue was the damp musty smell downstairs, which would make its way upstairs if the windows were all shut. This isn't unusual in Venice and they are working to fix this, but it does hit you when you walk into the apartment.
