In the amazing Cannaregio Area, next to the famous Fondamenta de la Misericordia. Quiet, bright, restored and clean flat with double bedroom, very big living with two sofa-bed and balcony over big garden Internet wifi, complete kitchen and washing machine. 10 minutes from train station and 15 from Rialto.
Appartamento delizioso e spazioso, situato in una zona poco turistica e molto caratteristica di Venezia.
Raggiungerlo dalla stazione seguendo le indicazioni dettagliate di Massimo è stato facile. Da tenere in considerazione che ci sono almeno 10 minuti a piedi da percorrere. l'alternativa è usare il traghetto linea 4.2 o 5.2 e scendere alla fermata S. Alvise, da lì la casa dista 2 minuti.
L'appartamento si è presentato pulito, con i letti rifatti e gli asciugamani per tutti.
In bagno abbiamo trovato il sapone e in cucina alcune stoviglie, anche se non le abbiamo utilizzato.
Massimo è sempre stato disponibile telefonicamente e ha fornito pregiate indicazione sui dove andare mangiare, pagando il giusto. Chi è già (email hidden) quanto preziose sono queste indicazioni.
Decisamente un'esperienza positiva che consiglio.
Massimo was very kind to pick us up from the carpark and help us to find our way in Venice.
His place is quite nice for a couple and can accommodate more people if you don't mind to sleep on a sofabed.
Our experience in his place was very good and the location is not that far from the main attractions, closer distance in Venice means a lot more $$$.
Great, quiet location only a 5 min walk to (in my opinion) the best resturants and bars in venice- cool, chic area, very quirky and reasonably priced! Apartment served all of our needs and massimo was very helpful, take him up on any transfers and a boat tour! It's worth it!
The Place: We had an amazing few days in Venice and really loved this apartment. It is in more of a local neighborhood in Venice but only a short walk from great restaurants, cafes and bars. It is very safe and quiet at night which helped us all to get great sleep even away from home. The kitchen is really well designed and the whole place is great for more than a few people to relax and enjoy after a long day sightseeing. The laundry was really convenient and there is an outdoor line to hang your clothes (thankfully NOT over the water).
The Host: I honestly cannot say enough about how wonderful Massimo is. From start to finish he was a kind, gracious and accommodating host. He went above and beyond to make our stay relaxing and truly a vacation. Venice can be difficult and confusing to navigate, but Massimo is a native and can point you in the right direction day or night. BEFORE you book anything, check with Massimo first, he will definitely give you sound advice. My mother has trouble with mobility and Massimo made sure she was comfortable and well taken care of from airport pick-up (he went to the airport and searched for my parents since my connection was missed) to train drop-off (right to the actual track!!).
Tips: The apartment has great hot water, but you need to let it heat for a few minutes (don't worry, it's coming!!).
The heat works well, but put it on auto otherwise it will get very warm!
If you are trying to find a relaxing and comfortable apartment, stay here!
Apartment is in a very quiet area of Venice and is handy to good local cafés and restaurants and supermarket. Bit of a walk from station but once familiar with the many bridge crossings and lane ways it's not such a problem. Massimo is a very friendly and helpful host - he even provided a private canal tour in his boat with lots of local knowledge. Good flat for a small family. Handy to airport ferry connection.
We spent two nights at Massimo's place in January. The apartment is very large and comfortable, it is situated in a very nice area in walking distance from all the main attractions (15-25 minutes). We liked a lot the old doors and the staircase in the building. It is not far from the railway station, you can walk from there or Massimo can take you there by his boat (what we preferred because it was late night - still we had to wait for approximately 30 minutes). Massimo was very flexible with check-in and check-out what we liked a lot. Venice is a great city, wish to come another time!
The apartment was great, very spacious and very well located ! We had everything we needed and the fridge was fixed (cf earlier coments). Massimo was very nice and flexible with us :) the only thing I could say for the flat to be perfect is that it could be a bit more cosy
Massimo is a very good host! He picked us in the pier next to the water station in Plaze Roma by his private boat. He helped us to check in the apartment. There is one thing I want to mention is that when we arrived he thought the toilet was not that clean and Massimo spent 20 mins to clean it. We are very moved by him. Thank you Massimo! He recommend a very good restaurant to us and it was very good! The apartment is very nice and is more beautiful than the picture! Strongly recommended!
Nice apartment away from the hustle of touristic areas. Comfortable beds. Massimo was kind enough to pick us up at the train station even though we were delayed by 3 hours. The fridge was broken during our stay and we thought there could be better dishes, cutlery, and cooking supplies.
This incredibly quiet and private apartment was worth every penny we paid to rent it. The amount of natural light that illuminates the entire space is extraordinary and the advantage of having a small balcony that overlooks a garden below and the surrounding area is a huge plus in Venice. The neighborhood is extra convenient to the RR station and Piazzale Roma and has some great restaurants: La Rioba, Vino da Gigi, Promessi Sposi, plus there's a good sized BILLA supermarket tucked away nearby too.
Massimo is does his utmost at making his guests comfortable and his English is excellent. We hired him both for a 'back' canal tour and for our departure too. His prices are right and the service is tops.
What more can I say? Can't wait to go back to Venice, that's what!
