  • Everything at Irene's place was perfect, if I ever go back to Venice I would definitely try to stay there again, what I liked the most besides the apartment was the location, it was close to everything!! Great place I totally recommend it

  • Logement au calme, très bien placé près des giardinetti. Nous y avons passé un super séjour. Irène est disponible et nous a donné toutes les instructions nécessaires.

  • Dies war meine erste Buchung über AirBNB, und ich bin total begeistert, Irene war eine super Gastgeberin, die Wohnung ist war klasse, vor allen Dingen sehr sauber. Wir fanden die Lage etwas ausserhalb des totalen Standkerns super.

    This was my first booking about Airbnb, and I really enjoyed the visit in venice, and the really good accomodation. The flat was very clean and Irene was great.

    March 2014
  • This apartment was perfect. Actually quite large, homey, good bathroom, well equipped kitchen, WASHING MACHINE! and in a good location. It's nice to be away from the tourist hordes, but close enough that you don't feel as if you are staying in a different city. The island of Castello is perfect! Highly recommend this place AND Irene. She is a WONDERFUL host.

  • Accueil très sympa par Irène ,Logement parfait, idéalement placé car proche de tout, mais très calme!
    Quartier populaire, plus authentique et pas inondé par le monde.
    A recommander si vous voulez un logement bien situé, et calme à la fois, de plus l'appart est très propre!

  • Perfect place for our trip. Irene was a brilliant host and communicated with us from booking to us sadly leaving on the plane. The apartment is very well located for water taxis and for a local vibe of venice, not a far walk from San Marco Square. The apartment is clean, has all the facilities you need to make you feel at home. The mattress is amazing, three wonderful nights of sleep having walking the through the whole of Venice.
    Wonderful and thank you for your hospitality!

  • Irene is lovely, she helped me to organize a memorable moment with my future wife. The flat is very clean and comfortable. Great situation and near from Saint Mark Square and Bridge of Sighs. I´m sure, we´ll repeat in the future. Thanks for all Irene!

  • Irène est très accueillante et attentive à notre confort, elle nous a donné pleins d'indications utiles.
    L'appartement est très bien situé, à 1/4 d'heure à pied de la place St mars. Mais il est aussi au calme. Il est très confortable, refait à neuf et nous avons apprécié la qualité du chauffage (en janvier il peut faire froid !). Le matelas aussi est très confortable, appréciable après 1 journée de marche.
    Nous recommandons vivement cet appartement.

  • The flat includes everything that one or two people would need, and the couch folds out into a bed that is perfectly comfortable for sleeping. The major advantage of the position of this flat is its distance from the popular tourist areas around San Marco. The experience we had was authentic. The streets in winter were quiet and filled with neighbours talking, as opposed to a series of camera flashes and posing tourists. While it is a 20 minute walk from the flat to the Rialto Bridge, it is a nice walk that acts as a good introduction to the charm of Venice. The flat includes a folder of recommended restaurants, area information, and very useful portable maps.

    Irene herself is terrific. She was relaxed about check out and went as far as to stay in touch to ensure all was well. Above that, when we told her that we had the wrong suitcase she sat patiently through a bad phone connection and arranged the entire changeover for us. The problem was solved within an hour thanks to her and we are very grateful.

  • Host met us promptly as agreed. Location was good for being out of the busy area. Everywhere you want to go and see is all in 1 direction from the flat though, so if you want to be in the middle of everything I would suggest something between st marks square and the rialto bridge. but a very nice appartment.

    Response from Irene:

    Yes Rob, you are perfectly right, the flat is out of the busy area and into the most venetian zone in town.
    You have been my guest on late december that means that you didn't see the real "busy and caotic" tourist time - fortunately! Here december and january are low season and I'm sure that If you will have the opportunity to come here in another period of time you'll change your mind about the location. ;)
