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.
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. ;)
Irene met us at the vaporetto stop very close to her apartment even though our flight was delayed for several hours. The apartment was in a very good location, about 15 mins walk to S Marco and right beside the Biennale. It was spotlessly clean and had everything you would need. Supermarket and bakeries v. close. Also bars and a restaurant that Irene recommended but unfortunately was fully booked out the night we went there. Communication with Irene was v easy and she responded quickly each time. Venice is a beautiful city and Irene's apartment is an ideal base to enjoy it from!
Convenient & clean flat for a short stay.
We had a good communication with our host, Luca.
The neiborhood is very nice, walking distance from Piazza San Marco but it's more than one hour to reach Marco Polo airport.
The flat - venizian style I guess - is quite dark, even when it's sunny outside.
L'appartement d'Irene est vraiment super : grand, propre, bien équipé, claire, calme et très bien situé, à proximité de plusieurs commerces et des Giardini (donc, idéal pour ceux qui viennent à la Biennale d'Art). Irene a été très attentionnée et le séjour s'est très bien passé. Donc, je recommande vivément cet appartement, où je voudrais bien retourner un jour !
PS: Les adresses à Venise sont très particulières : le numéro de l'immeuble correspond à son emplacement dans le quartier, et non pas dans une rue spécifique. Donc, c'est presque impossible de localiser un immeuble sur un plan, y compris sur le (website hidden) Maps. Attention à ce détail, pour éviter des égarements !
Very nice, up-to-date and roomy apartment, warm and cozy in chilly November. The washing machine worked well, and while we didn't hang out the washing on the line (weather was too iffy) the indoor drying rack did the job fine. There's also A/C and, a real rarity in Europe to us, window screens for warmer weather. Everything was spotless and functioned well, except for a minor drain problem which Irene had fixed the next day. Irene herself was friendly, helpful, and always eager to explain or clear up any snags, of which there were very few. I think she must secretly be a girl scout.
The neighborhood, while a bit removed from the tourist hot spots, is lively in the day and evening but grew quiet at night. Within half a block is Via Garibaldi, a busy street with bars, a dance hall, some nice-looking restaurants, a variety of small shops, and two rival supermercati side by side, which manage to pack an amazing variety of goods into a cramped space with narrow, barely negotiable aisles.
Très bon séjour grace à l'appartement très bien situé et très agréable. Irene est très sympathique et professionnelle. nous recommandons chaudement.
