Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Debra is a wonderful hostess and her room on the canal is delightful. My stay there could not have been better. Even before I arrived, Debra made arrangements with a porter service to meet me at the train station and help me with my heavy suitcase. She was extremely welcoming and helpful, and gave me great tips on places to see, how to get to them, etc. The room is very comfortable and immaculately clean, with a private bathroom down the hall. It's literally steps away from Piazza di Santa Margarita, with its restaurants and cafes. I enjoyed this neighborhood tremendously . I would definitely recommend Debra and her lovely home.

  • I stayed for four days in Debra's place. The location is perfectly in the centre of Venice, quiet but still close to everything and night life as well.

    Debra gave me very clear instructions to find her place and offered a lot of helpful information on how to appreciate the beautiful city.

    The room is exactly like what you see in the pic. And the windows open to a small canal, the view is fantastic.

    I would definitely recommend Debra's place to anyone who wants to have a true Venician experience.

  • I had an absolutely wonderful stay in Debra's home. She was a superb host, and she helped me orient myself to Venice and all it has to offer. For those looking for an authentic experience in Venice, this is a wonderful choice. The location is great, and is proximate to all major neighborhoods and sites of interest, while still being far enough away from the tourist areas so as to be quieter in the evenings. The room overlooks the canal, which is a wonderful way to wake up in the morning. Thank you Debra for making my trip to Venice so wonderful!

  • I was during my birthday-weekend in Venice and stayed at Debra's home and I really cannot imagine any other place that could have been more wonderful and relaxing as this lovely room was! Debra was very kind, understanding and helpful with her great ideas to spend the time and I felt very comfortable and safe at her place.
    I would suggest this beautiful single room to everyone, who would like to have calm and pleasent hours in this very special city.

  • Such a lovely place to stay. Perfect location, peaceful, beautiful room overlooking a canal. Debra is a wonderful host, full of amazing tips for places to eat, things to see, galleries etc. I highly recommend staying with Debra. I'll definitely try to stay here again the next time I'm in Venice. Grazie mille Debra!

  • It was a great time in Debra's place. It is very central located and one of my favorite places in Venice on Campo St. Margherita. Not too touristic, with a lot of good locations for food, bars, supermarket, ATM and a small vegetables and fish market. My favorite Pizza Corner is also right there. The room is very bright and with a view on canal. That gives you a very unique feeling. I felt like I sleep on the Yacht. You can hear the water purling in the night. It is so clean in the room you could eat from the floor. Debra was also very kind and helpful, the Person with a positive energizing Charisma. Thank you very much, Debra! I hope I can come again and again.

  • If you're read and accept the rules of the house you can not expect any surprises. Sorry ,there are some surprises. Great room ,clean and bright and pretty quiet place.Good opportunity to stay in a Venetian house.
    This was my first airbnb experience (and the first European travel)

  • The room is big, bright and faces a canal, so the view from the window is very beautiful. Room and bathroom were both comfy and really clean. The neighborhood is fantastic: alive, original, with lots of pubs and restaurants and outside of the touristy routes. I didn't even use any vaporetto (apart from Murano), everything could be done easily by feet. Debra not only gave me nice tips of places to go, but also gave extremely precise steps to reach her house, which was important, once it's really easy to get lost in Venice (specially if you arrive by night like I did). Debra also got me some tea and hot water during my stay :)

  • Staying at Debra's was wonderful. I booked at rather short notice, but she was very accommodating and was quick to respond to my messages, providing clear instructions with maps of how to find the apartment in advance, and advice on where to leave my luggage during the day. The room was clean, spacious and comfortable, and exactly how it appears in the photos. Great location, close to the Campo with lots of fun bars and restaurants on your doorstep, but at a distance so not to be disturbed by evening noise. Dorsoduro in general is a great neighbourhood, a world away from the more touristy parts of the city. Debra was a generous and thoughtful host, and gave me lots of tips on sights to see in the city, and where to go for food, especially as I was traveling alone. She even provided me with a thermos of hot water for morning tea. I would definitely stay with Debra again, and recommend her to anyone looking for a distinctive Venetian trip.

  • I had sent a message only the day of my arrival and received a reply within the hour. Thanks to Debra's reactivity and flexibility i had a wonderful place to stay the same evening. The room is spacious and comfortable, so is the bathroom.
    Location is also great, very close to the bus and train station and next to Campo with some great places to eat and have coffee or late night drink (to Venetian standards).
    In case you plan to sleep in, maybe it is good to know that because the room is located next to a narrow canal and boats start moving early, the place can be noisy already in the morning.
    Great stay, welcoming though discrete host!
