For further information, please read the full description below:

My home is 5 minutes away from the Santa Sofia traghetto -- the public gondola that for 2 euros (sorry! the gondoliers have raised the price for tourists!) drops you right at the Rialto Market and the areas of Santa Croce, Dorsoduro and San Polo! Or, take the walk across the Rialto Bridge or the Accademia Bridge to arrive on the other side of Venice. You can cover the entire city easily from my home!

I have a spacious, light airy room (regular twin and full-size twin regular mattress trundle) and a lightly shared bath with separate shower and sink for personal toiletries and guest use, that is located in the heart of Venice just off of Strada Nuova, the main street connecting you to the train station, and bus connections at one end, and in the direction of San Marco and Rialto at the other end, all within 15-20 minutes walking distance along the beautiful streets of the city. The large bathroom has been fully restored and is completely new! Excellent shopping, good to excellent restaurants (in a range of prices) and easy access to local areas such as the Miseracordia and Ghetto are within minutes from my home. The closest vaporetto stop, Ca' d'Oro is less than 5 minutes away, putting you on Line 1, the local line along the Grand Canal. While Strada Nuova is full of life, my home, in an old palazzetto (little palace) is quiet, looking out on an ancient inner garden from the terrace off the large, light, airy sitting room. First floor access makes it easy to arrive and leave for your sightseeing. The large rooms feature typical beautiful Venetian floors (pavimento veneziano), large sunny windows and comfortable,and cozy furnishings. I want you to feel comfortable -- tired, hot or cold after sightseeing? Relax at home in the sitting room over-looking the garden, rest in your room or even watch a movie in my study.

Guests are treated to freshly pressed linens and each morning, breakfast is offered from 8.00 to 8.30 -- choose from cereal, eggs, homemade or artisan bread, fruit, Italian coffee or tea and juice. Weather permitting, breakfast on the terrace! If you wish to skip breakfast and sleep late, please feel free to do so. There are many bars in the area which offer fresh brioche and coffee. Free wi-fi service included. Sorry! There are no cooking privileges but feel free to put lunch items in the 'fridge to make sandwiches for a days' outing, Also, I will do a load of clothes for you if you have been traveling for several days. Please visit my listings on Martha's Vineyard for more information about me!

PLEASE NOTE that on days requiring a change-over, I will serve breakfast as usual. You may check out at the regular time. I apologize in advance for any inconvenience. If you would like, you are welcomed to leave your bags to continue your sightseeing and can collect them and leave your keys when you depart Venice. Due to my work schedule, I have to ask you to please arrive by 9:00 p.m. Please allow for the possibility of travel delays when making your travel plans. Thanks!

I do have two dogs, a chihuahua and dachshund. They are with me throughout the day at my language laboratory if you have any concerns.

Two-night minimum stay is requested.

I see you on a daily basis -- first thing in the morning at breakfast which I serve in my sitting room and you can enjoy in privacy and then again, in the evening before I retire. During the day, I am working and so, you are free to come and go as you wish.

  • She is so kind host. She always cares about us. Her house is very close to the market, good restaurants and the boat stop 'Co'daro'. It was very convenience for our short vacation. And Her house is so clean and comfortable. I'm grateful to her.
    I will go Venice soon again. And I will stay Nancy's house again if it's possible.:) Thank you, Nancy~!

  • Nancy's place is great . A room in her apartment right in the heart of everything and SO easy to get to from the vaporetto stop . We had 2 single beds as we requested , ( one was a trundle ) and both super comfy . Nancy breakfasts are great and our conversations were hilarious . Everything is right outside your door but the apartment is quiet and peaceful and overlooks the garden .

  • L'appartement de Nancy est très agréable, clair, spacieux et en plein centre de Venise, ce qui est très appréciable; Nancy est une hôtesse enjouée et sympathique.
    Un seul bémol : il faut bien se mettre d'accord sur l'endroit où récupérer la clé de l'appartement ! traverser Venise sous une pluie battante avec les bagages, utiliser son téléphone portable à l'étranger et prendre le vaporetto pour aller chercher la clé ... pas trop cool !

  • Nancy's place is amazing. She is the best Airbnb host and can help with anything. Her place has a great location and makes it simple to get to anything in Venice fairly quickly.

    We loved her breakfast in the morning and getting time to talk to her. I would recommend anyone who is going to Venice to stay at Nancy's place. Can't wait to stay with her again, maybe at the Vineyard!

  • Estuvimos con Claudio dos días en Venecia en el cuarto de alquiler de Nancy Rose y es realmente encantador! La ubicación es excelente para recorrer esta bella ciudad, fácil de ubicar y cerca de la parada del vaporetto y de la infinidad de negocios de todo tipo que posee Venecia. Se puede ir a cualquier parte fácilmente desde allí. La casa es realmente acogedora, con buen gusto y llena de detalles encantadores. Llegamos en el momento en que Nancy estaba trabajando no muy lejos de allí, pero fue muy fácil llegar, que nos diera las llaves para alojarnos e empezar nuestro recorrido por las islas venecianas, lo que demuestra la flexibilidad de la anfitriona respecto del check in.
    La ubicación es central en el Canareggio y desde allí se recorre muy fácilmente todo, además de ser una zona super tranquila, está perfectamente conectada con los sitios de interés turístico, los restaurantes y negocios para compras, incluso cerca se puede encontrar un Mc Donalds
    Debemos hacer una mención especial respecto al desayuno ofrecido: INCREIBLE, VARIADO Y DELICIOSO! , muffins, frutas, yogurth, jugos, huevos frescos, acompañaron un delicioso café italiano, en una preciosa vajilla.
    Recomendamos este alojamiento con preferencia, tanto como a su anfitriona, que nos hizo sentir como si estuviéramos en nuestra casa. Si tuviéramos la oportunidad de viajar nuevamente a Venecia, seguramente trataríamos de alojarnos con Nancy.
    Desde Argentina le enviamos un cálido abrazo y nuestro agradecimiento por haber podido compartir nuestra estadía en tan agradable casa!

    I was with my husband Claudio, two days in Venice in the room rental and Nancy Rose is really lovely ! Excellent location to explore this beautiful city , easy to find and close to the vaporetto stop and countless businesses of all types has Venice. You can easily go anywhere from there. The house is really cozy , tasteful and full of charming details . We arrived at the time when Nancy was working not far from there but it was very easy to get , to give us the keys to stay and begin our tour of the Venetian islands , demonstrating the flexibility of the host with respect to the check-in.
    The location is central Canareggio and from there goes all too easily , besides being a super quiet area is perfectly connected with the tourist sites , restaurants and shops for shopping, you can even (email hidden) Donalds
    We must make special mention regarding the breakfast offered : INCREDIBLE , MISCELLANEOUS AND DELICIOUS! , Muffins , fruit , yogurt , juices , fresh eggs, accompanied with delicious Italian coffee in a beautiful tableware
    Recommend this host preferably as much as his host , who made us feel like we were in our house. If we had the opportunity to travel back to Venice , probably would try to stay with Nancy .
    From Argentina we send a warm hug and thanks for being able to share our home stay so enjoyable !

  • Nancy's place is nice. The house location is easy to find, close to water bus stop and you can go anywhere easily from there.
    Nancy is a sweet sweet lady who always ask if everything is okay and if there is anything she can help. The breakfast she provided was very nice. Overall, we had a great 2 night stay & great holiday !

  • My husband and I had such a lovely stay at Nancy's home during our four days in Venice. We had some issues with our flight and arrived earlier than expected and truly appreciated her flexibility in letting us check in early & drop off our luggage. She is a wonderful host and was kind enough to make us a nice breakfast every morning. (Her home baked pastries were delish!) Her home is located in a convenient area near a vaporetto stop and within a short walking distance to our sight seeing activities.

    Hopefully we will get a chance to return to Venice one day, we would definitely stay here again. Thanks for all, Nancy! :)

  • Nancy's home is beautiful, charming, welcoming, and has all the comforts of home in spectacular Venice. The location is convenient to the popular attractions as well as the out-of-way spots. Nancy offered great restaurant ideas. After a long day of taking in Venice, her wonderful home was the icing on the cake! We will return! She is a vibrant and interesting woman, and her two dogs, especially Alice, we're also gracious hosts! It's a slice of paradise!

  • I spent 3 nights with Nancy. Her apartment is lovely and easy to find from Nancy's excellent directions (a big plus in Venice!). Location was very quiet yet close to the main railway station to Rialto/San Marco route. The bed was very comfortable, the bathroom spotless and the breakfast delicious. Nancy could not have been more welcoming and helpful ... it really felt like home and I could fantasize about actually living in spectacular Venice! I would definitely stay here again.

About
I am an American-trained speech/language pathologist who worked for many years as a specialist for hard-to-diagnose learning disabled children in New York. Currently,I am the creator and director of Inglese Dinamico, an English teaching project located in Venice, Italy and President and co-founder of Partnerships for Learning and Teaching (non-profit), an educational project dedicated to research and development of best teaching practices with special emphasis on challenged learners and dyslexia and also cross-cultural/multi-lingual integration across multiple subjects. Begun in 2012, I am spear-heading a project, The Collaborative Learning Center Initiative, Venice, Italy, to bring private funds, social activism and educational practices together to provide a dynamic learning community for privileged and disenfranchised children and adults. Visit the (email hidden) to learn more about my work. The project is developing "The Generation Rising" -- young, Italians who are learning the value of social activism and community organizing as they strive to use a global language to be a part of a global community. Our home on the Vineyard is a special place for guests who wish to enjoy the beauty and vitality of this incredible island. Instead of just 'the playground for the rich and famous," the Vineyard is a microcosm of America -- its strengths and weaknesses. Come and be a part of it! Until 2011, I hosted international students through my project. But, having enjoyed the guests who brought the world to my doorstep since 2010, I am now only hosting Airbnb guests as I enter my 5th year of hosting. And now, I'm able to share my beautiful home in an historic area of Venice with you! Please visit Spectacular Affordable Venice! Please come to this magical, historically significant city!
