Guest's bathroom is not en suite. No air conditioning or tv. A laundromat and a dry cleaners are nearby.
Single occupancy is preferred, though I occasionally accept low-key, considerate couples (surcharge for two is 15 euros / night).
I'd like to know about you before I accept your booking - please have a profile, post a photo, allow airbnb to verify your phone number and email, & /or send me some information when you submit your request.
Guests are invited to borrow books from my library. I only ask that they not be removed from my home and that they be returned before leaving.
Interaction with Guests
I will gladly share my knowledge of and love for Venice, encouraging (and providing the necessary info for) guests to move off the beaten path into the lagoon. I am present when guests need me, otherwise I keep a very low profile. Guests can (and should) count on me for assistance as they would a member of their extended family.
Guests are asked to be mature, discreet, considerate, trustworthy, and tidy. No visitors are allowed. Accommodation does not include breakfast or use of kitchen. Guests may not eat meals in their room (but there are fabulous cafes, snack bars, and restaurants in the immediate vicinity). A carafe of fresh filtered water is placed at your bedside. I will be happy to provide a selection of teas and a thermos with hot water.
I cannot store luggage before check-in or after check-out. I will however refer you to excellent, trustworthy facilities in Piazzale Roma or at the Santa Lucia train station.
Please respect check-in and check-out times.
Perfect place for the perfect get away! Debra was an excellent host, she took me right in like family. She was very helpful when it came to getting around and suggestions on what to do if you do not come with a plan (like myself). Very homely feel, the location is awsome, her home is clean and tidy, and her book shelf is AMAZING! The sound of the canal puts you to sleep at night and the boats traveling up and down the canal wake you in the morning, the ultimate Venice experience. My experience was truly amazing, I feel so lucky that I got to be a guest of Debra's, I hope that I am able to stay again when I go back!
love the home of debra... i had this warmly welcome with all the information... like her art and to see this in the comfortable bedroom, it's really like on the picture.
and i like the sound of the canale in front of the window, the boats has really an other sound as cars in the city.
if you don't like rain, never go in november, but it's also such beautiful, melancholic time.
the place was also perfect for my daily walkings, it's in the middle of everywhere... easy to come to the different vaporettos.
I had a wonderful stay at Debra's apartment. The room is nice, spacious, tidy and Debra is a great host! She will tell you everything you need to know about Venezia within 5 mins, and I didn't feel the need to call her asking anything else during my stay. The location is perfect and easy to follow as long as you follow the instructions Debra provided before the arrival. Thanks again for your hospitality!
Ik verbleef twee nachten in verband met de marathon van Venetie.
De locatie is prima: mooi tussen aankomst van de bussen/taxi's/auto, en het San Marco plein, midden in het oude centrum - alles op loopafstand. Het gezellige Campo Santa Margherita om de hoek, maar ver genoeg om niet gehinderd te worden door het nachtleven.
Fijne kamer, prima bed, kussens en lakens. Eigen badkamer met alle faciliteiten. Zeer behulpzame en vriendelijke host Debra, zowel voor als tijdens het verblijf.
Samenvattend: de beschrijving op Airbnb is accuraat en correct. Prima plek om kort in Venetie te verblijven.
Debra was able to meet me on time. A lot of that is due to Debra putting together a great set of maps on how to get from the airport to her apartment. She really cares about making sure she covers all bases and makes the guest enjoy their stay. She gave me a quick tour of the place and the bedroom was huge. The bathroom was great in the fact that it had a good shower and a properly flushing toilet. She gave me great ideas on what to do in my limited time and even offered me tea since I was dealing with some allergies at that time. Her apartment was in a great location and I could get to all parts of venice within 25 min walking.
The high quality of coming home in a foreign place can be found at Debra's. Her flat is beautiful, yes lovely. Even for people who don't find ways easily her maps are so well to find. For me the perfect place in the wonderful center - anything can be reached on foot. With all the overwhelming venice impressions and art the need for reflection in a home is very important for me. And Debra's intuition knows what is needed. nothing could have been any greater. just love it. the neigbourhood to me felt also very familiar and gave me comfort.
very nice room in a great neighborhood in Venice - Debra went out of her way to help me make the most of my time in Venice
