About this listing
The apartment is on the first floor of an historical building of the 1700. Completely renewed inside, it has a warm and welcoming style.
Inside, the furnishing has the nuances of white and oak, that perfectly joins the elegant parquet of the floor. The apartment has a roomy and luminous living room, composed of a modern and completely accessorised kitchen (oven, microwave oven and dishwasher) and of a comfortable double davenport in acid green. The roomy double room is in the tones of white and oak too and the elegant restroom, with modern tiles "diamond", has a refined mosaic in the shower. The additional comforts of the apartment are the satellite Lcd television, Wi-Fi connection, air conditioning, hair dryer, toaster, vacuum cleaner and cradle for children (if requested).
Space for 4 persons.
The area, even though it is central and therefore close to all the important sites of the city, is not the usual destination of the mass tourism: it still maintains the fascination and the smells of the ancient times, and it can be considered the most exclusive neighbourhood in Venice. Entering the quiet streets that surround the building, you can discover the typical venetian squares with their unique smell, where there are small restaurants managed by venetian families that offer exclusive menus, full of traditions.The apartment is close to the SS Giovanni and Paolo Square, one of the most evocative places in Venice and the ideal starting point to visit Venice, the unique reality in the world where there is no continuity among the places to visit, being the whole city a continuous gathering of art treasures, of breath taking views, of historical and traditional wonders. Walking a few minutes through the streets of the real Venice you can reach St. Mark's Square or the Rialto Bridge, passing by the square Santa Maria Formosa. On the other side, 10 minutes through the popular Sestiere di Castello and you will reach the antique Arsenal of Venice, nowadays one of the most prestigious sites of the Venice Bienalle of arts and architecture. Not far there also are the stops of the public means of transport (the ferries) that create a constant and fast connection with the train station of Venice Santa Lucia and the Marco Polo airport (VCE) or with the isles of the Laguna like Murano with the famous glassworks, Burano and its multicolour houses and the traditional lace, Torcello, where you can admire the basilicas in venetian-Byzantine style.

We were really happy that the host was able to accommodate our request for an early check in. A very warm lady ( from Peru) came to meet us at the water bus stop and oriented us to the apartment. The apartment was clean and exactly as per the photographs.
The place is close to all the key attractions and the water Bustop. Very convenient to visit Murano and Burano as well. I only wish there was an AC in the bedroom. For July weather the one AC in the living room was not enough.
There quite a few eating joints in the neighbour hood. Ideal for evening strolls. We liked our stay.
Good meeting at water bus stop and shown around appartment. Good communication via email and directions
The house was great, the location was also very good. Everything was clean and organized.
Our host was 30 min. late to meet us, though we were told to be there on time. He did explain things to us, but it would have helped if he has shown us how to operate the washer. One note, the stairs leading up to the apartment were dirty and crumbling. Attention should be given to the first appearance at the entry. The neighborhood was quiet, felt safe even at night. It was very comfortable, clean and spacious. Nicely remodeled!
Apartment was clean and tidy, in a great location, close to restaurants, and a short walk to the centre. Greeted by a friendly person. Very roomy for 4 people.
L'host è stato gentile e disponibile, forse un pò inesperto. Il quartiere è molto carino, tranquillo e piacevole; un ottima scelta. L'appartamento ben arredato e pulito, camera spaziosa, divano letto pratico, bagno grande con doccia. Molto simile a ciò che si vede dalle foto ma con tanti particolari che danno un senso di trascuratezza. La scala di accesso orribile: calcinacci (pare non sia competenza dell'host) nessun passamano (cosa che, data la pendenza sella scala, rasenta il pericoloso). Il divano abbastanza comodo, ma che praticamente cade a pezzi! Secchi, asse da stiro, scope, tutte in bella vista all'ingresso. Parquet malandato in molti punti. Con piccoli accorgimenti sarebbe molto meglio! Sorvolando su queste cose, che forse sembrano pignolerie, siamo stati bene, l'appartamento è in un punto strategico per spostarsi e in ogni caso offre tutto il necessario per una vacanza veneziana...
