At home, waterwindow family shelter

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Venice, Veneto 30122, Italy

The Space

Our home in Venice gave us a lot of pleasure from the day we bought it. We enjoyed it very much to modify and restructure the curious high entrance room and the low corridor, to hide the garret and to place the beautiful waterwindow right at the canal. We made the furniture by ourselves of solid wood and painted the bathroom in beautiful matching colors. Now that the house is ready we enjoy passing some time there every now and then, to feel at home in the friendly neighborhood, visit the Biennale and walk around in the city. To stay in a comfortable and beautiful house hidden in a narrow lane (email hidden)ly square is a real pleasure, and we hope you may enjoy it the way we do.

The Apartment is located on the ground floor of a 15th century building with an independent entrance in "Calle del Prè Maurizio" street. The neighborhood is mostly populated by venetians and it has kept its own authenticity within the small shops, taverns and bars, usually attended by residents of the area.

A pleasant corner where to relax watching the gondolas passing. A great arched window with a reflecting glass, will allow you have an undisturbed view of the canal.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Had a wonderful time in Venice. The apartment is within walking distance (20mins) of St.Marks square and very close to Arsenale Vaporetto stop. Brigitte was extremely helpful and arranging to meet up with her on our arrival was very easy.

  • My wife, 5 year old son and I stayed here and we absolutely loved it. Bridgette was very helpful and so was Attila. Walking distance to everything you want to do in Venice. There is a musky smell to the place like mentioned in some other reviews but it did not affect our stay.

  • Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this apartment in beautiful Venice; homely, clean and in a lovely quiet area yet so close to all the main tourist sights... The canal window was lovely and our 9 month old enjoyed spotting the boats as they went by! Bridgette was excellent and was able to help us out with receiving delivery of our hired cot bed before we arrived with no worries, a real help. Thank you Attila we loved your apartment- highly recommended to all.

  • We hebben 3 heelijke dagen gehad in venetie en het appartement. Fijne locatie en niet ver van Arsenale en het San Marco. Opvallend rustige buurt tussen de lokale bevolking en aan het water. Dat maakt de hele ambiance compleet. Het appartement is netjes, schoon en voorzien van alle gemakken. Geen wifi, maar daarvoor liepen we even naar de hoek, naar het cafe, daar hebben ze gratis wifi. Daar sloten we onze dag graag af met een limoncello of een grappa. We hebben veel gezien van deze prachtige stad en komen zeker nog eens terug al is het alleen maar voor ons favoriete restaurant in de joodse wijk. (Paradiso perduto venezia). Ook de ontvangst door Brigitte was perfect, ze heeft ons leuke tips gegeven.
    Echt een aanrader!

  • Mi sono innamorata a prima vista della finestra che da sul canale e le aspettative nn sono andate deluse! la casa è molto bella! Posizione ottima per visitare la città, lontano dai soliti giri turistici, alla ricerca della Venezia dei Veneziani!
    Brigitte è molto simpatica e può darti degli ottimi consigli!
    Ottima scelta!

  • This apartment was brilliant, really spacious, it had everything we needed, and its an excellent location away from lots of tourists but still really easy to walk everywhere,
    The window out onto the canal sold it to us when booking, it was fantastic to sit at and watch the boats pass by
    Brigitte was really friendly and helpful, and flexible with check in and check out times

    would definitely recommend this apartment as a base for exploring Venice

  • Casa bella, pratica, comoda, funzionale e super accessoriata!!! In pieno centro, ma allo stesso tempo in una zona tranquilla e silenziosa. Due fermate di vaporetto a meno di 5 minuti di cammino! Praticamente perfetta!!!

    January 2014
  • We had a lovely stay at the flat. Brigitte was really accommodating with our check in and out and the flat was very clean and well equipped.

    The location was perfect for the Arsenale and Giardini (as we came for the last weekend of the Biennale) and was only a ten minute walk from Marks square.

    The only thing it might be worth knowing in advance was that the second bedroom was on a mezzanine level above the open kitchen / living room area so privacy could have been an issue. It wasn't for us and we loved it all the same but worth being aware of.

    We hope to visit Venice again in two years and would definitely like to stay again. It felt like a home from home. (Well, if only our flat had windows looking on to a Venetian canal.) Thanks for the great accommodation Attila!

  • I will definitely return to this lovely place for my next trip to Venice.

    Great place / Great location / Great vue

    It was just perfect for my family.
