AndreA was very helpful and even took us directly to the apartment baggage in tow :) . . Lovely Location.
Giulia has a number of apartments and we stayed at one that was very central on the one hand and very quiet on the other - an unbeatable combination. It was clean and comfortable and all that it was advertised to be. It also had mechanical locks. I would definitely recommend staying here.
I'll start by saying the apartment is great. Gulia was out of venice which was just too bad. She sounds like a very interesting host and her touch in the house made us both wish it was ours. however, the guy who took care of it when we came is taking care of around 20 other places in venice. this means we had to wait over an hour on the street for him, never apologized. heating didn't work the first night and had to contact airbnb till he finally showed up to fix it .the guy was not a bad guy, just too busy to take care of this great place.
The host canceled my reservation the day before arrival.
Really enjoyed Giulia's place. The location was amazing. Down a quiet little amazing street. Its a very nice flat. Nothing glamorous, but that isn't what I was looking for anyway. The place is actually pretty big. There were two of us and there was plenty of room to work out of.
The *only* downside was the shower acted a bit weird. Hot and cold, back and forth. We probably should have asked for some protips about that.
But really, in Venice, you probably aren't going to do much better than this.
Gute Lage, schönes Appartment. Leider etwas zu teuer.
My husband and 19 year old daughter were after a home away from home experience in Venice and thats what we got. Our stay began with the bright and helpful Guilia meeting us at the train station as the map she had sent that afternoon did not download to our trusty iPad in time. The walk from the train was fairly quick even with suitcases. Be aware the last flight of steps up to the apartment were very narrow and steep when lugging suitcases but Guilia was fantastic and helped. Once in the apartment everything was spacious and comfortable and we really enjoyed the balcony along wth the occassional visit from Pablo the black moggy. The kitchen had everything we needed and the supermarket was close by for provisions. The bathroom was fine though a larger person may find the shower small. The location was perfect within easy walking distance to everything, close to a ferry stop and still in a quiet location undisturbed by the crowds. We made great use of the washing machine and could dry things on the balcony. The beds were comfortable and the aircon was great for those humid nights although we fought off the mozzies and left the numerous windows open for the fresh air. We would highly recommend the apartment and give it 4 1\2 stars.
Giulia was great! She was extremely friendly and helpful! The apartment was beautiful and was in a perfect location - close to everything but away from the tourists! If I come back to Venice, I'll definitely want to stay here again!
If you are allergic to (email hidden)ware! Pablo also lives here! That said, I'm quite allergic to cats, but Giulia took Pablo out and as long as I took an allergy pill, I was alright. The apartment was clean with minimal fur.
Excellent experience. Giulia was nice, helpful, picked us up at the nearest boat stop. The apartment was very enjoyable, including a lovely terrace. The location is terrific and allowed us to easily explore many areas of Venice. Overall, a very good experience during the 6 days we stayed there.
2 days in Venice was not enough! Giuila was more than amazing! As soon as we arrived, She was so sweet enough to meet us at the vaparetto station to pick us up. Her apartment was perfect for he two of us. Equipped with everything we needed. She was even minutes away to help us with the air conditioning unit that she and her boyfriend were able to fix quickly! She also gave us suggestions as to where to eat/drink/see away from the touristy spots. We had a lovely time and would go back in a heart beat. Giulia, you were the sweetest host and I hope Brad and I will visit again soon! Thank you for hosting us! Good luck with your studies! xox
