I am most happy to help you whenever I can, as I know it can be difficult ( and tiring ) in a foreign language and I speak fluent Italian :-)
I had a lovely stay with Rosemary, her place a beautiful Venetian home with so much to admire in every corner, it's a perfect location close to everything you will need or want. If you are lucky enough to have a chance to hear Rosemary sing, it will be the biggest treat of your stay, her voice is amazing and if course she is too, kind, creative, sweet and ready to help you with what you need. I can't recommend her home enough, I will be back in September with my friend.
Aller chez Rosemary, c'est vivre l'expérience AirBnB idéale : comme si vous retourniez le temps d'un weekend chez votre tante ou cousine préférée que vous ne voyez pas assez ! Elle vous met à l'aise en 5 minutes, vous affranchit sur les ficelles et bons plans et vous reçoit dans un home sweet home qui vous plongera au coeur de votre aventure vénitienne. Je ne peux que vous recommander chaudement de rencontrer Rosemary, Marco et leurs 2 chats. Merci encore à eux pour ces fabuleux 4 jours. Une rencontre à remettre asap. Rosemary, tu es notre invitée si tu viens sur Lyon un jour...
Apartment is ideally situated in a quieter area not heavily flooded by tourists. Late afternoon at the nearby square some locals are having a chat, small children will play while some stray tourists enjoy their dinner outside.
For breakfast you'll find a couple of bars within one minutes walk. Good restaurants and pizzeria nearby and reasonably priced. Piazza San Marco at walking distance or by water bus (stop Ospendale at 5 minutes walk).
Host Rosemary is a people’s person and goes out of her way to help you with tips on local dining, places to visit, etc.
Almost sorry to leave such positive remarks since it will diminish my chances on return visit vacancies!
Had a great stay at Rosemary's. Everything was just as pictured. Clean, welcoming, and great location. Don't be thrown by maps of the city- everything is within walking distance. A very short walk to Rialto, St. Marks, etc. Just got to meet Rosemary and talk for a short time, but she was extremely friendly and helpful.
The reservation was canceled 5 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Rosemary's apartment was in a fantastic location away from main tourist attractions just enough not to be crowded however only a short walk and you're in the heart of it all. We would definitely recommend this apartment if you want the true venetian style decor as its amazing. I stayed here with my mum and husband. It's downstairs of Rosemary's house and she was lovely. We would stay here again.
It was a pleasure getting to meet the friendly and talented Rosemary. Her home is nestled in a quieter area of Venice but very accessible to transportation and major tourist sights. Rosemary treated us like family and offered whatever she had to make us feel at home. Staying with Rosemary was a wonderful end to our trip.
A very nice stay at Palazzino. Very charming place with Venetian decor, clean, comfortable, quiet and well located for me as I went there to see the Biennale, never more than fifteen minutes walking. Was also great meeting Rosemary, a very nice, fun, talented host and opera singer with an amazing voice! :) I would stay there again if i came back to beautiful Venice (which i hope i do) and certainly do recommend her place to anyone. Thanks again, Rosemary! Missing 'la Serenissima' :(
Rosemary è fantastica! Oltre a offrire un'alloggio molto personalizzato, è una persona deliziosa, che ti fa sentire proprio come a casa...La descrizione per arrivare cosi come i buoni "tips" per i ristoranti e commerci sono utilissimi... Siamo pure stati invitati ad un concerto suo nella casa stessa, è una ottima (website hidden) ha presentato un bel viaggio musicale nella Venezia barocca, un riccordo indimenticabile... di cuore grazie!
I appreciated being able to stay in this large room within walking distance to Vaporetto water bus stops and all the most famous must-see destinations, including the Hop On/Off Grand Canal Vaporetto dell'Arte - a great introduction to much of Venice. Rosemary is multilingual, and a great resource for how and what to do in Venice, including truly wonderful restaurants minutes from her home. The bathroom is shared only with her, and convenient, and very clean always. As indicated, her kitchen is available primarily for self-service coffee or tea in the morning. Air conditioning is in the room, but request the remote control. If mosquitos are entering through the open windows, plug-in repellant can be helpful, and can be requested. The WIFI is excellent and fast, and a small work table can be requested for the room. Once you know the way from the boat dock or elsewhere, it's easy to find her address, but first time, if after dark, from nearby boat dock, can be challenging and all areas not very well lit, and especially the outside doorway, itself. Would suggest some minor revision in arrival walking directions, to make it even more obvious to a weary first-time visitor. Even retrieving the key from lockbox on door is a bit tricky, and there could be no one home when you arrive. Rosemary is very busy, in and out, and it is important to be able to be independent. The outside door requires a bit of wrestling, but once mastered, no problem. This home exudes Venice from every pore, Rosemary is gracious and responsive, and this location is terrific for getting to know Venice, and being able to spend more of your time doing that, rather than traveling over from another island, or from the mainland.
