On the Giudecca canal with an amazing view of all of Venice, and just a 5 minute boat ride away from the Accademia art museum or San Marco Square, but away from the crazy tourist traps. The Giudecca Island is fun, full of art galleries, real Venetians, students and very expensive hotels...Stay here and enjoy Venice without having to wade through all the tourists! This apartment is ON THE MAIN CANAL, with amazing views, but quiet inside.
Shared bathroom, large sunny bedroom, and shared kitchen, library sitting room and formal salon music room with a 17th century organ and several other keyboard instruments. This elegantly furnished apartment feels like you are living like Vivaldi was, only with model amenities.
Palanca and Rendentore boat stops are 1 minute walk away.
The location is fantastic, the host very friendly. Still, we felt we were intruding (sleeping in her bed, while she had to make do with the sofa...), which made us feel uncomfortable.
The reservation was canceled 28 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
we really enjoy our stay there, for those who are worried to stay in a different island, then don't! you have 24 hours boat/bus or taxis and its really close to everything. the house was very clean and with a perfect view of the rest of venice from the salon window.
Quiet location, away from the busy, touristy neighborhoods
Check in time was flexible
Shared bathroom without a lock and no shower curtain
Host does not always stay in the area and is slow to respond
BEWARE - undisclosed 30 euro "cleaning fee" was charged in cash! Julia said it was because of the Easter weekend, but regardless should have been included in the airbnb cost or at least disclosed in the description
Week end fabuleux, fin du carnaval. Bon accueil. Chambre grande et confortable.
En fait, ce n'est pas un problème d'être sur une ile en face de Venise, les vaporetto transportent nuit et jour régulièrement. L'avantage c'est qu'on est au calme.
Nous avons été très bien accueillis par l'ami de Julia ;
l'appartement offre une vue superbe sur venise;il n'est pas central , mais parfaitement accessible en vaporetto; il est très agréable , au calme, et avec toutes les commodités; restaurant , bar et commerces à proximité.
Die Unterkunft war genauso wie wir sie uns vorgestellt hatten!
Wir haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt und würden jederzeit wieder kommen!!
