  • The (website hidden) was excellent and classy. The ambience gave it a true old Italy feel that made for a great visit in Venice. The location is close to a grocery store and several bus ferry stops. The neighborhood is off the beaten path but close enough to everything.

  • We had a wonderful stay in Ca Luminosa. It is a beautiful apartment with great amenities and enough space for five people. The location is in a quiet neighborhood and within a 10 minute walk of the water buses and 15 minute walk of the Jewish ghetto and main tourist area. Below the apartment is a supermarket which was very convenient and helpful.

    A few things to note- we had a lot of luggage with us and it was hard to carry our stuff from the waterbus stop over the bridges. It is also hard to find on your own so I suggest calling the host when you arrive and meeting up to be escorted. Additionally there is no air conditioning- it cools down at night and there are fans so it is not a big issue. There is also a 500mb/day wifi limit but that is enough to check emails and look up information.

    Overall we would recommend this apartment- it was well priced, clean, comfortable and away from the tourist section.

  • The apartment was in a lovely, quiet part of the city, away from noise but easy to access. The water bus stop was a short walk and there is a co-op grocery store right underneath the apartment. We had no problem communicating with the owners, and they were quite helpful with directions to restaurants, sites, and other information on getting around. They leave a notebook full of information, along with other books. Everything in the apartment was clean and functioning well. We enjoyed our time in Venice and would recommend this apartment if you are looking for a place to stay that is out of the way and convenient.

  • Nice compact apartment in a quiet neighborhood away from the hustle and bustle and a good walk from the sights of the city. Conveniently there is a grocery store under the apartment, on ground level and about a 15 minute walk to the train station.

  • We had never been n Venice before and relied on the host to explain to us to get to the apartment. They told us to take the ferry but in fact we can walk to the apartment as easy. We have to spend euro$7 per person to travel there which is not necessary if the host could have explained that we can walk over there. There are also couple issues but mainly is the fact that the host has very poor english and not explained everything. We got mosiquito bites at night not knowing that there was mosquito nest we can use. We were told that the Internet is limited and will be extra charge if we used over certain mb. Tis was definitely not advertised in their description. We do not feel that we should charge by just using the internet for 5 people. The worst experience is that there was a leak somewhere close to the kitchen sink while we were washing dishes which caused electricity shock. All the electricity was shut off and we tried to reset with the breaker with no success. We tried to call the host at around 10:30pm but the phone was not accessible (we think the host phone was turned off completely)and we cannot contact anyone. So we found someone in the building who can help us. The upstairs neighbour told us it was likely there was a leak in the kitchen and we had to unplug the main plug and dry it and plug again. We feel very unsafe by doing it but have no choice because we cannot be get a hold of the host. We are disappointed that this is not explained. There is a washer but no instruction in English explaining how to use it. The location is not ideal as it is in the residential area. however, there is a supermarket downstairs which is very convenient. Overall, we will likely not stay again. Thank you.

    Response from Sara:

    I'm sorry if you were not good in the apartment but are rightful some clarifications:
    I can not advise guests to walk to save the money for the ticket as with suitcases walk is more than 30 minutes with four bridges.
    The person who has accompanied the spoke Italian as the guy who was with you speak Italian properly and it was not necessary to communicate in another language. Point out that the booking request has been made by you in Italian!
    As for the mosquitoes, the apartment has mosquito nets in all windows if they are not used by you is not my problem.
    Internet is free up to 500 MB per day (guests are unlikely to exceed that threshold)
    For the loss of water from the sink after a 'careful analysis we found that the electric shock (tripped the breaker because the apartment is required by law) could have been caused only by the leakage of water from the sink MUCH for negligence your.
    The instructions for use of the washing machine are in Italian and English, was sufficient to control the notebook (where there was the password for the wifi) and you would have found!

  • This was a great place to stay in Venice. It was clean and well furnished and was in a quiet district of Venice. Walking distance from the ferries with easy access to the more active parts of Venice. There are some good restaurants down the street and a grocery store below. Sara and her Husband were easy to communicate with and made the experience lovely.

  • El apartamento es sencillo (más de lo que parece en las fotos) pero está idealmente localizado (cerca de una estación de vaporetto (San Alvise)) y está muy limpio. Hay un supermercado a la vuelta de la esquina lo que resulta super práctico si viajas con niños como era mi caso. La relación calidad/ precio es muy correcta. Hemos pasado una estancia muy agradable.

  • The flat was in a great location, a 20 minute walk from all the major tourist stuff which was great to get away from all the hassle and busyness of the tourist areas (and the tourist prices!). The flat was clean and had everything we needed to feel at home. The nearby supermarket was great as we cooked a few meals so we weren't eating out all the time and rinsing our money. Sara was always prompt with communication and having Luca meet us at the ferry stop was very helpful, we would've got lost if he wasn't there!

  • This is a comfortable and large apartment in a wonderfully quiet and authentic part of Venice. It suited our family of four very well. You need to be good at reading maps or recognising roads and bridges to get around (I took photos as Luca guided us from the Alilaguna wharf) but it is great to have the place to yourself, with no sign of tourists unless you head for a popular spot elsewhere in Venice. Good eating out close by and the supermarket - right beneath the apartment building, but out of sight unless you want to reach it - was very handy. Sara and Luca were very helpful and professional hosts. The rules sound quite strict but it means the place is clean, neat and quiet, which suited us. We would love to stay here again.
