Paolo is a wonderful host. Before we arrived he informed us already via mail about all the possibilities how we can get from the airport to Venice by private taxi, shared taxi or the water bus naming all the stops where he can pick us up. We met us at the taxi stop and he took us to the apartment to ensure we wouldn't get lost and pointing out all the amenities on the way. When we arrived at the apartment Paolo had prepared a typical Italian "aperitivo" for us which was very charming. Then he prepared us with maps and books for discovering Venice giving us also recommendations for bars and restaurants. The apartment itself is spacious, clean and tidy and just as Paolo describes it. We found everything very comfortable and enjoyed the quite and beautiful surrounding. We enjoyed to be so close to San Marco Piazza (approx. 10 minutes) and had a beautiful firework there for the New Year. The location of the apartment is a super place to really experience the best of Venice.
Paolo’s secret hideaway in Venice was a perfect spot for our holiday vacation! We arrived later in the evening and Paolo was waiting for us at the vaporetto stop to wisk us away into the maze of Venice. The apartment was spotless and filled with food and drink for us to share, which was wonderful since we were so tired and just wanted to unwind and relax with a nice glass of prosecco. We were there a little less than a week and never heard a sound or saw any neighbors, so we felt like we had the whole place to ourselves. I would love to come back in the warmer months to be able to take advantage of the breathtaking patios that were available to us. We were only a 10-15 minute walk away from Piazza San Marco (if you don’t get lost) but just far away to feel like we were part of the actual Venetian community and not the tourist hub.
For those of you looking for details on the finer print…the apartment is just as described in words and in the pictures, along with a very snuggly comforter on the bed! I would highly recommend this listing in a heartbeat to anyone.
This was an accomodation as it should be when you stay via Airbnb somewhere. The appartment is located in a rather calm neighbourhood of Venice. Perfect to explore the life in this amazing City a bit away from the touristic centres. Nevertheless only some minutes walk away from the famous locations. Paolo was the perfect host. Guiding us after our arrival quite late in the evening personally to the appartment. He explained everything what is necessary when you are new in town. The communication was very prompt, easy and incredibly friendly all over the time. When we arrived in his nice appartment we found more than enough to have a relaxed first evening with something to eat and drink. Thank you Paolo for the just perfect experience. We would be more than happy to stay again at your appartment the next time we are in Venice.
Paolo was a wonderful host, meeting us and taking us to and from the apartment to ensure we wouldn't get lost and pointing out all the amenities on the way. I have stayed in Venice many times, but this was by far the most authentic and enjoyable accommodation I have had. It was a real Venetian experience in a superb part of Venice. For those of you who don't know Venice well, and want to get a feel for the 'real' Venice, then this is the place. Do not think you are too far from the 'action' (ie tourist central). The walk along the waterfront to the main sites is delightful and there are water buses if you find it too far. But here you are away from the crush of the crowds and you can enjoy the beauty of the walkways and piazzas that make Venice so lovely. We had a brilliant Saturday night at the local bar and many, many wonderful rambling walks around the area and right up to the Ghetto one evening. The apartment itself is spacious, clean and tidy and just as Paolo describes it. We found everything very comfortable and enjoyed cooking our own meals in the well-equipped kitchen when we were tired of eating out. We never heard a peep from anyone at night, and barely saw anyone around the building. The building has a private courtyard and cloistered entry, which is utterly charming. We enjoyed running down to San Marco Piazza at dawn and up to the nearby gardens. This was a super place to really experience the best of Venice.
He picked us up at Arsenale and brought us to a wonderful,silent,clean special appartment! Some beer,prosecco and snacks waited for us! We had a nice talk and it was,so far,our best airbnb experience! Best place to stay in venice! Hope,to see him and venice again! Thx 4 the nice italien job ;o)
Good luck,Paolo with the bees!
We had an amazing time in Paolo's flat. The neighborhood was totally amazing, less touristy, and slower paced with so many amazing restaurants and shops and people. Paolo met us at the water taxi stop and gave us a lot of helpful information as he showed us around. He even checked in on us numerous times to see if we needed anything. I would highly recommend this place to anyone!
Paolo came to meet us and helped us with our bags. He explained everything about the apartment and the neighborhood and made us feel at home. He made sure we had everything we needed and was very prompt with all his responses. It was a great place to stay and come back to at night after the bustle of Venice.
Casa della Sposa war für uns die perfekte Unterkunft. Sehr schön ausgestattet, in einer ruhigen Nachbarschaft und dennoch sehr zentral im interessanten Stadtteil Castello.
Die Bilder geben die schöne Stimmung der Wohnung exact wieder. Wir sind sehr gerne auch tagsüber zwischen unseren Touren zum Ausruhen dort zurückgekehrt.
Paolo ist ein sehr guter Gastgeber. Er hat uns bereits im Vorfeld kontaktiert und Tipps zur Anreise gegeben. Am Anreisetag hat er uns abgeholt und mit Prosecco und kleinen Snacs empfangen. Wir konnten ihn bei Fragen jederzeit kontaktieren und er kam auch zum Abschied vorbei.
Wir fühlten uns gut umsorgt und kommen sehr gerne wieder. Danke!
Paolo has been very collaborative and flexible, we had to postpone twice our booking for job reasons and he patiently supported us in the process. He kindly met us at the vaporetto stop (btw I think in high season Celestia stop is better than Arsenale if you come from Ferrovia as the route is less busy) showing the way to the apartment, which is very well located if you are in town for the Biennale, like us. I know Venezia quite well as I studied there architecture, so I don't need to be every time in Piazza San Marco (which is anyway only a healthy 20' walk). I've therefore appreciated the apartment neighborwood, far from the crowds, with a truly local spirit. For breakfast we went every morning to bar pasticceria Alla Bragora, 5' walk after Campo Do Pozzi on the way to San Marco, great relaxed place to start the day.
Paolo's apartment itself was clean, simply decorated and spacious enough for two people.
Only downside was that it's a bit humid being at the groundfloor (which is totally normal in Venice) but once mentioned it Paolo immediately told us where to find the dehumidifier, which worked very well. Also, there are works going on at the moment in the little courtyard on the back of the house. The works are between 9am and 4pm in working days and they stop during the week end, so they didn't interfere with our plans, apart form the fact that the little courtyard is not easily accessible as it's a bit dirty (pity, must be nice).
Overall Paolo has been a professional and attentive host.
Paulo was very accommodating and the apartment was as (website hidden) was in a good location close to a vaparetta stop. He met us at the vaporetta stop and walked us to the apartment in the pouring rain. The refrigerator was well stocked with various food items and cooking supplies. He also left us wine, beer and prosecco. He also escorted us to the pick-up point for the water taxi to the airport.
It was really nice to host Paolo and his family since they were really kind, relaxed and tolerant guests.
Paolo and his family were very very nice quests. It was fun to have them at our place. Too bad they had to leave so soon. Thank you for the great wineyou brought us from Vanice. Hope to see you again.
Very nice and friendly family!
Paolo has been with me four days and I can say that it is an excellent host of rare education, very correct kind and friendly.
It 'was a very good knowledge and I'm really glad I hosted.
Thank you very much Paolo!
