The Space

The apartment is a 1BR, around 40sqm, located on the 1st floor(USA 2nd floor) of a 2 apartment building. The
main bedroom sleeps 2, and 2 more can sleep in the living room, on the couch or a fold out bed
(stored in the house.)
The kitchen is new, equipped with a dishwasher and all cooking utensils etc.
There is also a washing machine and drying rack in the house. Hair dryer is also supplied
There is a small tv/dvd player, and the apartment is fitted with electrical heating.
Sheets and towels are provided.

Location

Located in Cannaregio, only 7 minutes walk away from Venezia Santa Lucia train station, the
apartment is in a calle (street) just off Cannaregio canal. This means connection to the main
Vaporetto lines (phone number hidden)) is at the doorstep, as is the Guglie stop of the Airport transportation
boats.
The house is situated approximately 15 minutes away from the Rialto bridge, and 25 minutes from
San Marco square, walking distance. The vaporetto will take you on a scenic route of Venice, and
you’ll be able to reach most destinations (San Marco, Giudecca, Giardini-Biennale, Lido etc.) within
30minutes.
The house is situated just steps aways from the Jewish Ghetto, the oldest Jewish Ghetto in Europe.
Aside from the beauty and history of the area, its location just off the tourist routes ensures more
tranquility, better and more authentique bars and restaurants. It is the ideal location for the genuine
Venice experience. Cannaregio is one of the six historic sestiere (districts) of Venice. More of the
permanent population of Venice lives in Cannaregio than in any other sestiere; we find it unaffected,
friendly and vibrant.

  • The appartment is very well placed, in a very nice and calm area.
    It is perfect for a couple. In my opinion, it is possible for 4 people to live there, if they want to save money, since there is a room, and a separate living-room.
    All the facilities are working well, and it is possible to do some cookings (if it is not so complicate).
    Luca sent us detailed information, so that we knew all the little tricks in order feel comfortable in the room.
    Very nice impression to us (I am french).

  • Thank you Luca for sharing your home with us. The location is perfect, only 1 bridge from the train station so you don't have to carry your luggage up and down too many stairs.
    It is very quiet in the apartment with a new kitchen and you are up 1 flight of stairs so my daughter and I felt safe. There is a vaporetta (ferry) stop very close to the apartment along with great (email hidden) in the mornings, fruit stalls and great coffee shops.

  • Bon séjour chez Luca. Appartement conforme à la description, très bien situé (vaporetto en face, commerces partout, à 10 minutes à pied de la gare). Pas de contraintes horaires d'arrivée, même tardive. Seul bémol: la douche est petite, mais on s'adapte.

  • after our abidance in your apartment we have some points we want let you know.

    Positives:
    The position of the apartment was very good. Carnareggio (email hidden) of Venice and the connection with the vaporettos was fine. In the night it was mostly quiet. The rooms had been clean.
    The address was easy to find and the keys had been there as you told.

    Negatives:
    It was not a nice welcome to have no warm water after a long journey. A warm shower was not possible, cause it took hours until the boiler had warmed up the water.

    There was no possibility for cooking coffee but using this tiny espresso maker, which was not enough for two persons. Allways told to you the whole cooking equipment was very scanty. Too scanty for good cooking.

    The TV was not working. The heating was not adequate for warming up the rooms especially because we had to switch off the main clip while leaving the apartment. The result was that the rooms had been always a little bit clammy and our clothes, too. Especially because it was not possible to open the windows in the evening for ventilation. If we have opened a window mosquitos flew directly into the appartment. It would have been nice to (email hidden) at one window. The whole apartment was dark like in a basement. The stairs had been cluttered with old boxes and cans wich made the stairs pretty dangerous. Everything is cobbled with adjustments of what is to do or not to do, but they are mostly in italian.
    ll things considered we felt not very welcome in your apartment. And for paying 100€ / day we definitely expected more. For dispensable more money we could have been in a hotel between 3 or 4 stars and with breakfast.

  • Luca is a really nice person, he answered every question I had really fast.
    The apartement is central, but not loud or touristic.
    The information about it was very detailled so there were no problems in finding it or arranging there.
    it´s small, but in venice everything is a bit smaller, but still we had no problems living there with 3 people.
    it includes everything, a big kitchen and a fan (really important in summer) bed sheets and towels, luxury!
    We cooked together in the evenings and sat at the water with a wine and looked over the city! --> it´s 50 meters away from the water and 100 meters away from a vaporetto station, perfect! - and stil familiar and quiet.
    There is no wifi, but if you go to the city you get free wifi almost everywhere.
    By foot, it´s about 15 minutes to Rialto Bridge.
    I have nothing bad to say, we were all very happy living there and i think we rent it again the next biennale

  • Knus appartement in een rustig gedeelte van Venetie. Alles is aanwezig maar verwacht geen luxe. Het appartement is niet geschikt voor meer dan 3 personen. Voor ons twee was het groot genoeg, Vooral de badkamer is nogal krap.

  • Luca's flat is located in a very nice area, the vaporetto ALILAGUNA from the airport stops right in front of his house, and there is Grand Canal round the corner, so it's easy to get everywhere. Santa Lucia 10 minutes to walk, also very helpful.
    There's a very nice cafe with tramezzinis just on the left, on the right s amazing kosher venetian restaurant GAMGAM, very good, highly recommended.
    It was very easy to get the keys - they were left (email hidden) by the cleaning lady.
    Concerning the flat itself, it is not a new flat, but quite cozy. You have to understand how to turn on the hot water etc, or ask Luca before you go. We didn't have any problems with hot water.
    The only unsatisfying thing was bed linen and towels, it was all very ������damp.

  • We were a little let down when we (email hidden) in Venice. First off the communication with the host was great before the trip and he made arrangements for the keys to be left for us since we arrived late. He also sent a great map of where to find the keys. Also there was not a problem with the hot water heater anymore, before our trip I asked him about it and he said that it had been replaced and I can say that is true. Now cleanness of the apartment was not what we would have hoped. It just seemed dirty everywhere that we looked. We tried to only sleep there since we didn't like being in the place. The bathroom is MUCH smaller that how it looks in the pictures! There is a shower, sink, toilet, bidet, and washing machine all packed in a tiny little space. The other downside was the lock on the front door. It is very tricky to figure out and when we first got there I was worried we weren't going to get it. It is very close to the train station and a little off the main road so it is quieter, it would have been nice to pay extra to stay in a place we felt was clean.
