Cosy apartment in the center of Venice, ideal for family, friends or couples looking for a romantic getaway. It is located only a few minutes walk from Rialto bridge and the famous fish market and ten minutes walk from St. Mark square. The nearest water bus stop is San Silvestro (less than five minutes walk and with no bridges to cross!) and from there you can easily reach all the main attractions by foot. Nearby there are many restaurants, bars, shops and the closest supermarket is only five minutes walk!
The apartment, characterized by the typical venician style floor, is composed of a spacious living room, a master bedroom, a double bedroom, a well equiped kitchen with a bright dining room and a big bathroom. Despite its location, right in the heart of Venice, the apartment is situated in a quiet place, just outside the crowded and noisy touristic routes.
You will be scheduled for an appointment at the apartment with a particular person in charge of your arrival. Therefore your best possible indication of a specific arrival time and updates concerning any changes (delays etc.) are essential and will ensure the best possible entry process.
Some of our facilities and services:
_Towels and linen
_Oil, vinegar, sugar and coffee
A few days before their arrival, the guests will be scheduled for an appointment at the San Silvestro water bus stop with a particular person in charge of their arrival. Once they will inform us about their travel timing, we will give them useful information about how to reach the meeting point and then, on the day of their arrival, our staff will meet the guests at the water bus stop as soon as they arrive.
During the check-in we provide our guests with a city map and we give them some useful information: we show them where they can find the closest supermarket, the best way to get to the islands and where they can have a good meal :)
During their stay our guests can easily contact with us (both via e-mail or phone).

Abbiamo soggiornato in questo appartamento per l'ultimo we del carnevale.
Una coppia più bimba e io con mio figlio. Siamo stati molto (website hidden) sono una camera matrimoniale con anche una poltrona letto è una cameretta con due letti singoli. Abbiamo trovato anche un lettino da campeggio nell'armadio e mio figlio ha voluto dormire lì anziché nel secondo letto in cameretta e ci è stato benissimo. Direi che è ideale come sistemazione per le coppie con figli.
La casa era sufficientemente pulita e calda, comunque col termostato regolabile non ci sono problemi.
C'è anche una lavatrice volendo. Difetto: la pressione dell'acqua calda che è davvero bassa. Impossibile farsi la doccia mentre qualcuno sta lavando i piatti e anche con la sola doccia aperta ci vuole pazienza.
Laura e la sua assistente Carlotta (spero di ricordare correttamente il nome!) sono state gentilissime e sempre disponibili consentendoci di anticipare il check in di tre ore dato che l'appartamento era stato preparato in anticipo.
Carlotta ci ha indicato supermercato e bar nelle vicinanze e alcuni punti di interesse.
Lato negativo è stato il fatto che l'insonorizzazione è praticamente assente e si sentiva ogni discorso dei passanti, pur essendo al secondo piano. Immagino però che il problema sia comune in tutta la città, date le case non nuovissime, le vie strette e la confusione generata dal carnevale.
Sicuramente consiglio la sistemazione per qualche giorno di visita alla città!
Had a nice time at Laura's. Her colleague, Anna, was very pleasant and managed to find us even though we were early to arrive, it was very dark in the square (campo) where we wondered and we were not where we had agreed to meet her :-/. Should note, if you don't have a phone or a portable internet connection to make calls or contact with on the move, when visiting Venice it will be nearly impossible to communicate with the host. Even with prearranged check in and out instructions it is still very frustrating. Pay phones are not readily available and wifi at cafes are not standard and only comes with a purchase obviously. Anna still picked us out of the masses none the less, walked us to the apartment and went through everything very thoroughly. Also note, there is a city tax of €1.50 per day per person that I so just be perpared for that. (We didnt encounter that in Rome or Naples so it was a surprise and I dont recall seeing a note of it on the original description but it was not a big deal).
Once inside of the apartment the Internet works fast and everything is clean. Can't speak to the functionality of the kitchen as we didn't do any cooking in our short stay but everything looked good. Now this may just be the older Venetian building but heat didn't go very high (we weren't allowed to adjust it more than a few degrees ) and the hot water took awhile to heat up as well and also didn't get very hot. Please note I visited in the winter (beginning of February) so I'm sure that is not an issue other times of year. Bed was comfortable the building quiet.
If you are checking out late and leaving your bags at the "office" be sure to get very clear and specific instructions about the location. Again this is if you are not traveling with a phone to make calls on. With the address 230 S polo, (website hidden) maps or map quest will take you in a completely opposite direct from where you need to get to and when you do arrive the address it does not look like an office at all so be sure to clearly work out all the meet up directions ahead of time. This was the only time I met Laura and she was just as polite and helpful face to face as she was over messaging. Overall, fantastic stay. How could I not? It's Venice!
Thanks for everything,
The apartment was very spacious, clean and ideally located. We were met at the water taxi station and given lots of helpful info. Only issue was the shower water pressure but I believe that is typical in the location. Would definitely recommend.
Nice flat very well situated close to the center. Laura gave us all the informations for our stay in Venise . Very convenient place.
Très bon accueil, les indications pour nous rendre au lieu de rendez-vous (vaporetto le plus proche) parfaites, et une collègue de Laura nous y attendait pour nous conduire à l'appartement. Très bien situé non loin du pont Rialto et du marché aux poissons et légumes, nous avons pu sillonner Venise à pieds.
Très bons conseils de restaurants en sus.
Appartement propre même s'il mériterait un rafraîchissement. Bien équipé. En revanche, très froid, et l'eau chaude pour la douche se limitait à un maigre filet d'eau... un point regrettable surtout en plein hiver.
L'appartement est situé dans une petite rue au calme.
Nous avons tout de même énormément apprécié notre séjour à Venise, l'hospitalité et les recommandations de notre hôte.
Very welcoming and helpful. From cost effective directions and routes from the airport to help with the apartment we had very accessible hosts. The apartment was great, very clean and I would definately recommend and of return.
