We stayed for a long weekend in Michele's house. We were not disappointed with the house or with Michele. He met us at the bus stop and took us to the house, so we did not get lost on the streets of Venice (which is easy to do). The house is in a wonderful safe neighborhood with a ton of cafes and restaurants but not too far away from the tourist areas. Michele had maps and gave directions to all the sights we should see. He also offered restaurants we should try that would not cost us "tourist prices." He also made sure we had his cell phone number to call in case we got lost or needed anything. The house is very comfortable with a living room, 2 bedrooms and a kitchen. It can easily sleep 4 people. With all the great food around us we never used the kitchen, but it was very clean and stocked with pots and pans. There is a nice balcony to sit on and enjoy your morning caffe or evening vino. If you are going to take a gondola ride I suggest taking one that departs by the house. You will be taken down quiet canals not overly packed with traffic. The residents in the neighborhood are very nice and very welcoming. If you are looking for a great place close to everything, not overly crowded and want to experience Venizia like a local this is your place!
We had excellent stay. Great host. Very responsive. Only minor issue is sometimes hot water stops and needs reset.
I highly recommend it in Venice.
Michele was extremely helpful: meeting us at the ferry, providing local tips, and responding to our needs. The apartment is very comfortable and just far enough away from the main tourist hubs to be tranquil and provide a taste of normal Venetian life. However it is still in easy walking distance of everything. Wifi issues fixed - great reception!
We had a great experience at Michele's apartment. It started with great communication & then instructions on the best way to get to the apartment from the airport. Michele met us at the water taxi stop & helped carry our heavy bags to the apartment! The apartment is beautiful & close to transport that'll get you to the airport or train station & also near San Marco & Rialto. Thanks for letting us stay in your apartment we loved it & Venice!
Michele was very helpful. He came to pick us up in the middle of Venice when we were relatively lost as without a map Venice is a hopeless maze. The apartment was massive and beautiful and was about 10 minutes from Rialto bridge and maybe 15 from San Marco Piazza. Overall it was a fantastic stay, but within the apartment there were a large numbers of mosquitos that kept biting us and hot water was available for only our first of three days.
We were in Venice for 2 nights, Michele greeted us as we arrived off the vaporetto, he gave us all the information however he did not tell us that there is a limit on the number of electrical appliances we could use at once. So the power went out and it would have been good to know about this limitation upon arriving. other than that, the location was great, the apartment was spacious and clean but wifi connection was sporadic and unreliable.
The apartment was spacious and beautiful. It was also very clean and quiet. The wifi did not work most of the time and the hot water ran out after 1/2 a shower. We also did some laundry but the washer ran 4 hours for one load.
dear ken, we're sorry for hot water....we are resolving the problem....about wifi unfortunately in venice is very difficult to have a good signal!!! hope next time to see you again in any case to my apartment!!!!
Without any problem inside :)
Michele is a very good host - he is reliable and dependable - the communications with him were very easy and to the point. The apartment is really great - in the newer building, very clean, very comfortable and spacious. The location is great - close to everything on foot and by the public transportation.
Ca'Elena Apartment is perfectly located to give an experience of true Venice. The apartment is close to the canals and the interiors are artistically decorated. It is close to the water-bus stop making it convienient to visit whole of Venice. Overall a vey comfortable stay.
Michele was great, met us with no problem when we arrived. The apartment is nice except that the shower is very temperate… it went ice cold one minute and scalding hot the next. Also if you plan to be on the internet be warned that the connection is very very slow. There was a mobile wi-fi router which took literally 3-4 minutes to load one page. Apart from this it was a nice, clean apartment, with good location and comfortable beds.
