The apartment was central for visiting Venice and exactly like the photos. There was a little bit of confusion with meeting us as apparently the text messages sent to Laura's number were not received. We found a little spot and had a drink while waiting for a reply. When we did not receive a reply, I called, the gentlemen answering the phone seemed very annoyed with us. Perhaps he was just tired of dealing with tourists. We did enjoy our time in Venice and the information provided when we arrived at the apartment was quite helpful. I would recommend the apartment to anyone visiting Venice.
We had a wonderful few days in Venice. Alberto met us off the vaporetto and escorted us to our apartment. He even helped take our luggage upstairs...thank you Alberto!! We were given very helpful information about Venice, which made getting around very easy. The apartment was just as described, beautifully set up with everything. It is very close to Rialto Bridge, the Rialto Markets, restaurants, gondolas, a supermarket, and beautiful gift shops. The beds were sensational!! Thank you Laura for your advice and assistance prior to arrival - you have a very lovely home away from home for travellers.
It was great to have our own space in Venice away from all the crowds. The flat is spacious for 2, with a nice outside area. Nearby there is a square with lots of good places to eat and drink. We had late check-in which was really helpful, and a really short walk from where the airport bus dropped us off. All in all, we are much happier to have stayed at this flat than having booked a hotel - Thanks Laura.
Very clean apartment near all attractions. Would highly recommend!
All in all we had a wonderful stay in this comfortable and well-equipped apartment. There was plenty of space in all rooms and the apartment was comfortable, quiet and clean.
Laura advised about the easiest transport from Marco Polo Airport and Laura's assistant, Alberto, met us at the vaporetto stop and walked us to the apartment. Alberto provided us with a printed booklet of local information...a map, recommended nearby restaurants, etc. Alberto also was kind enough to walk us to the nearby small supermarket (about 2 minutes away). During our stay Laura promptly replied to our inquiries.
The apartment is in a good location for seeing important sights, e.g., St. Marc's Square is less than 10 minutes walking distance. Water transport by vaporetto or gondola is also very close. (5 minutes or less)
The apartment has a pleasing Venetian look. Terazzo floors with velvet apolstered chairs which are comfortable and a pretty desk. There is lots of drawer space and provision for hanging clothes. Everything in the kitchen and bathroom works well. The bed is very comfortable. The TV and WiFi connection is good.
On short notice Laura stored our luggage allowing us to have a final few hours to enjoy Venice.
We have no hesitation in recommending this gracious Venetian apartment.

My mum and I stayed here for 7 nights, and can say it was a beautiful apartment with absolutely everything you would need for a comfortable stay. Having been to Venice a few times before, we loved staying in Dorsoduro, away from the hordes of tourists - it was very pretty and relaxing. The apartment is close by to fantastic bars, restaurants, cafes and galleries - and it was still very easy to get to any main attractions across Venice. The apartment is also close to fruit and veg markets and supermarkets, which was great for cooking meals whilst overlooking the canal from the kitchen! I highly recommend this apartment for anyone wanting an authentic Venetian experience.
Our stay at the Rialto Apartment, hosted by Laura, was absolutely wonderful. Right in the perfect location in Venice, the apartment is set up extremely well, and is serviced daily with all you could need for your stay.
About 30 seconds from the Rialto Bridge (you can see it out the window) and only a 10 minute walk to St Mark's Square and many other fantastic locations, this apartment is perfectly positioned for a great stay in Venice.
We were met by Laura on time and shown to the apartment (literally under a minute from the water bus stop). The apartment itself is exactly as the images and lives up to your expectations. It has a dishwasher and washing machine, and all the other expected conveniences.
Laura and her staff are wonderful hosts and the apartment is serviced (cleaned) daily to a standard usually only seen in a hotel! They go out of their way to provide you with great welcome packs and information, restaurant recommendations and helpful advice.
Close to supermarkets, pharmacies, ATM (just outside the front door) and lots of other conveniences this apartment was really great and we loved staying here.
We did experience some very slow internet access during our stay however we also had a local cell phone which mitigated the pain. Laura was quick to speak to her tech people and hopefully future guests will not see the same.
We loved our stay in this apartment and definitely recommend it to you.
Alberto met us at the boat stop and walked us to the apartment. He was friendly and helpful indicating many places of interest. The apartment was spotless, well equipped, with very comfortable beds. It is a very bright and well cared for apartment.
The location was central and we walked to all attractions.
Laura went above what was expected to help us when we arrived! Considering our delays and broken phone Laura was very accommodating which we really appreciate! The apart was exactly as described, and if anything a lot bigger than expected! It felt very traditionally Venetian which made our stay all the more special. It was pretty easy to navigate to from the Rialto bridge which is a bonus when constantly getting lost in Venice. Thanks again!
Laura's colleague met us promptly at the base of the bridge ( front of the train station) and he was absolutely nice.
The apartment looks even better than the pictures) Very clean, simple but cute decoration, spacious, comfortable. We fell like to be home.
