The flat was everything represented---and more! Our host, Ivana, provided us with emailed information beforehand that was most helpful in making our arrival comfortable and very smooth. Our onsite host, Vicki, was waiting for us with a big smile and hello. She filled us in on the flat, showed us where everything was, in short, made us feel absolutely at home! Response to our emails and/or phone calls for additional information during the week were met with pleasant, timely and accurate responses. The flat was beautiful, clean and comfortable, on the 5th floor with a gorgeous view of the Giudecca Canal and the Southwest end of Venice itself.The kitchen was great, the bathrooms(2) very nice, living space perfect. We heard not a sound during our stay. There was a bottle of Prosecco, coffee and milk that Ivana had left to welcome us and it was a lovely gesture. I would highly recommend this flat to friends.
Ivana was a great host and was sending us information and tips about our stay in Venice even before we departed from home.
She was extremely organized and took care of every last detail so our entire stay was perfect without having to waste any time on any problems.
The apartment was fantastic. Clean and completely equipped with everything a person could need during their stay. Dishwasher, washing machine and iron etc
The place was quiet and had amazing views.
I recommend this place to anyone without any hesitation.
We stayed in Ivana's apartment for two weeks in July and loved it. Although we didn't actually meet Ivana, she was great - very responsive, thoughtful and proactive via email, before we arrived in Venice and while there. Vicky met us at the apartment and was most helpful. And the apartment? Fantastic! I'd definitely stay there again. It was great being on Giudecca Island - it was lovely and quiet compared to the busyness of the main tourist area of Venice, but with stacks of good restaurants and supermarkets (with a great gluten-free range!) in walking distance. We went walking around the island after dinner most evenings, which we found most interesting. And getting across to the main area of Venice was very easy courtesy of the free Hilton shuttle boats. (We joined a little gym that we found right at the first boat stop at Zattere - really friendly and convenient.) The view from bed and from the lounge room was absolutely beautiful - watching the ships slip silently by, and all the other water traffic cruising up and down. The building itself is a fabulous, historic icon, and it was actually hosting one of Venice's famous art biennale exhibitions, which was an added bonus. It was handy having two bathrooms and a well appointed little kitchen which we made much use of. The lounge room was spacious, and we just felt very comfortable there. Loved it! We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this as a fabulous place to stay.
Excelente escolha! Apartamento amplo, limpo, confortável e ótima decoração. Quarto com cama macia, dois banheiros espaçosos com ótimos chuveiros e ar condicionado disponível em todo apartamento. A vista é espetacular! Vale cada centavo! Da cama é possível ver o mar com os barcos passando e no domingo os navios ancorados. É maravilhoso!! A locomoção é facilitada pelo shuttle do Hilton que faz a travessia de 20 em 20 minutos, com intervalo no almoço. Aconteceu em uma de nossas travessias o limite de pessoas do shuttle ter sido alcançado, por isso, tínhamos duas escolhas, ou esperaríamos mais 20 minutos para o próximo ou pagaríamos 7 euros cada um para atravessar. Esse tipo de situação pode acontecer...
Ivana foi uma excelente anfitriã. Mesmo não termos nos conhecido pessoalmente, respondeu todos os emails e mensagens prontamente, enviou instruções de como chegar no apartamento e recomendações de restaurantes. Nos presenteou com croissant de café da manhã e um delicioso espumante! Cheers!
The Charming retreat in Venice was excellent. Ivana was very helpful with transfer info and answered any questions. The home decorated with art that depicts the essence of Venice. There are two bathrooms which is a big plus. Just a few steps from the apartment is a shuttle which runs all day which will transfer you to the heart of Venice
We arrived at a beautifully presented and wonderfully decorated apartment and immediately felt at home. The location gave us a truely local experience being outside the main tourist area, but only a short boat trip from the main attractions. Ivana gave great directions on how to get there, where to eat and recommendations on what to do while we were there. Overall we thougherly enjoyed our stay.
We had a great stay in Venice and loved the location of the apartment so nice to escape the craziness of the heart of Venice and retreat to a very calm location.
The Hilton shuttle worked perfectly with no issues. Ivana provided great dinner recommendations and provide a welcome bottle of Prosecco.
The apartment is just like the pictures and would recommend this place to friends and family.
