About this listing
In the hart of historical Venice, our apartment has a contemporary and minimalist soul. It can host up to 6 people, and it is ideal both for a couple or a family. It is in walking distance from major sites of interest.
Lovely newly restored venetian private design apartment to rent:
entrance, kitchen with dining table, living room with double sofa bed, 2 children rooms with one single bad each, attic with double bad, 2 wc.
We are both architects and we gave our place a unique design, often rare in Venetian apartments, it has a kind of Scandinavian style (one of us is Danish!) and instead of a room in a hotel, you will have the experience of a whole flat, and feel like an 'insider' in Venice!
Recommended for family with children.
The apartment is located in a very central area, very practical for public transportation (vaporetto line nr. 2 stop Rialto, or Alilaguna boat direct from Airport stop Fondamenta Nuove).
We speak italian, english and danish.
The average price can change some period of the year (art biennale, cinema festival, carnival and summer are usually high season, therefore more expensive).

Interaction with Guests
Often I will be there to welcome the guests, sometimes there will be a person of our entourage, in charge of the house, and available in case of any need during the stay of our guests.
It is one of the few areas of Venice that has kept its authenticity. The neighborhood is extraordinary quiet and safe, yet central. A great mix.
Alilaguna water bus sales directly from the airport to Fondamenta Nove, the stop literally around the corner from the apartment, that makes it really convenient for any traveler arriving or living by plane.

We were 5 adults travelling to Venice; the apartment is in a good location with easy access to the Vaporetto station (fondamente nove) as well as restaurants & other places of interest (St. Marco Piazza, Rialto bridge etc.). The apartment has 4 floor, one each for the kitchen, living room, kids rooms (with bunk beds) & main bedroom in the attic so it may be difficult to carry your luggage up into the rooms. Like us you may end up keeping your luggage in the kitchen. The apartment had a good speed WIFI & multiple devices can be connected from most parts of the house.
There are no real beds i.e. all are mattresses on the floor with the exception of bunk beds which may not be suitable for children either as they are set up in a small & stuffy room.
The listing indicates presence of air-conditioning, however please beware this does not mean the full apartment has air conditioning, it only means presence of a 1.5 ton air conditioner for four floors; we visited Venice in mid-August with the temperature in mid 30 degrees range (centigrade) & found one air conditioner insufficient for so many floors. It was not possible to sleep in the attic since the air conditioner was installed on a floor below. With the bunk beds unsuitable for adults, all 5 of us ended up having to sleep in the living room.
The listing also states 2 bathrooms – this too is misleading since one bathroom only has a WC without any provisions for washing. Unfortunately for us, this was not in working condition & the room was being used to store garbage & other stuff, much like as a store room. The other bathroom had a low ceiling over the bath tub making it difficult for anyone of average height to stand & have a shower.
The apartment is listed as a family house, which we didn’t realize would mean absence of any wardrobe space. All the wardrobes were full of the hosts own clothing & we found it extremely inconvenient to manage our clothes.
The cleanliness of the apartment left a lot to be desired right from the kitchen to the living room, kids room, bathroom (used perfumes, clips etc.) which were full of the hosts own old stuff. Make sure you carry your own towels & other linen as these were worn out. I am attaching some picture that might help you get a better sense of the apartment & it’s set up.
She was very detailed and thorough with all the directions. The only thing I wished I would have been warned is late check-in fee [$30] which i completely understand. The apartment itself is totally worth it. It is clean, well equipped. The attic lacks air circulation but the rest is above standards.
Everything was great! Apartment is clean and modern, quiet neighborhood, but close to great restaurants. We were very pleased with our stay.
Very nice house near to Rialto bridge and convenient to get the hot spot such as S. Marco and Murano. Host is very kind and flexible.
