Paolo was absolutely WONDERFUL! He met us at the train station and escorted us to his place. After we arrived and settled in to the apartment - he took us for a short walk to show us where the closest grocery store, coffee house, gelato house and restaurants were.
The pictures you see on Airbnb are spot on!
His place is close to the water taxi and stores.
It is a great place and do not hesitate to book this place!
Paolo was most kind to meet us at the Santa Lucia train station when we arrived at 8:30 AM. We thought this above and beyond our expectations. He then explained how the river taxi's work and guided us to purchase the correct tickets. Once on the correct side of the canal, we walked to the residence a short way. Had we been left to find it on our own, we, for sure, would have been lost. The residence is in a fantastic location and the inside was everything described on the Airbnb website. We were extremely satisfied with what was provided and was well worth the price. Palo also walked us brriefly around the neighborhood and showed us restaurents, green grocer store, supermarket and other business's of interest. He even bought a pair of Wellies in my size in case they were needed (they were). Well done and thanks for a splendid time.
Although we never actually met Paolo he was gracious enough to send his sister to meet us at the train station and walk with us to the apartment. Apartment was stylish and comfortable and extremely well located in a quieter part of Venice about a 20 minute walk to St Marks square and other things we wanted to see. Loved sitting in living room and watching gondoliers rowing past our windows. Would definitely want to stay in this apartment again if we return to Venice!!
Dear Paolo and love Barbara, thank you for your hospitality and your helpfulness. We have found a great apartment by we felt at home and where there was nothing missing. Even on wellies you thought, in the case of Aqua Alta. Thanks to Barbara for the loving instruction both in the apartment, as well as in the surrounding area. They were all super tips. We love Venice very much and hope when we come back the next time it is possible to live in this great apartment.
Paolo was great. Met us at the train station, explained the alternatives to get to his apartment and cost. I've heard many b&b hosts try to steer people to the most expensive private "taxi." He's showed us the apartment with all the nice extras and then walked us over to a nearby area with shops and restaurants. He tried to book us into on of the nicest restaurants in Venice but it was booked. He then recommended an alternative which turned out to be great.
His apartment is located in a great are and very convenient to the local taxi service. It's also easy to walk to the Rialto Bridge if you're adventurous.
We had a great stay and checkout was incredibly easy with no hassles. Only thing to keep in mind is that the apartment is a three bedroom unit with only one bedroom suitable for a couple. Great for a family of four or two couples if one doesn't mind sleeping in separate rooms.
We absolutely loved Paolos beautiful accommodation, the photos were exactly what you find. Paolo gave. us great advice and arranged a perfect way to get to the ship for departure.
Paolo gave us a very warm welcome upon arrival at his beautiful home. In addition to this, he gave us a brief tour of the area sharing his invaluable local knowledge, and even booked us into the best local restaurant for lunch. The restaurant in question served amazing food and had a substantial waiting list for bookings, and while dining we saw a number of hopeful tourists turned away.
The home is located in a quiet, local area, that has a village like feel. The hustle and bustle of the busier streets and waterways is only a very short walk, but feels like worlds away. It was quite a surreal feeling relaxing in the home with Gondolas gliding past the windows. There is also a picturesque courtyard we enjoyed. The key attractions of Venice are all within a 30 to 40 minute walk, and there are many great dining options within a 3 to 5 minute walk from the home.
Staying in this beautiful home in Venice is an "authentic" experience, with the bonus of a wonderful host.
This was the first time we had used airbnb and it was a great experience. Paolo was waiting for us at the bus station and showed us to the apartment, we chose to use the vaporetta which was a good decision as it was easy with Paolo to show us the way.
The apartment is fantastic, beautifully furnished with high end quality fittings and Paolo is a brilliant host, showing us around the area and pointing out restaurants, bars and supermarkets. thank you Paolo for making our stay in Venice a memorable one
This was our fourth airbnb apartment for this trip and the whole experience was the best. Firstly Paolo was waiting at the station for us which was lovely. He then generously helped a tourist by making a phone call for them which I thought was very nice. We then chose to walk rather than ferry to the apartment and had a good chat along the way. The apartment itself was fabulous. Plenty of room and beautifully decorated. After explaining the apartment Paolo took us for a walk around the neighbourhood and pointed out restaurants and the supermarket. He even bought us a coffee. Back home he ensured we had his contact details and told us to call if we needed help with anything. He also left us some wine which we enjoyed in the private yard. The apartment was perfect for us. The gondolas passing the window and the ferry round the corner made life in Venice just fabulous. Paolo couldn't have been more helpful and his apartment was perfect. Paolo even text to thank us for leaving the apartment clean. I didn't text back due to cost but I just want to thank Paolo for being an amazing host.
Lieber Paolo. Wir möchten uns ganz herzlich für Deine Gastfreundschaft bedanken und für die Mühe uns eine individuelle Sightseeingtour durch Venedig zu organisieren. Dein fünf Sterne Apartement war ein tolle Basis um die Stadt zu erkunden und sich zu entspannen. Mille grazie. Claudia, Anne,Jürgen und Peter
Paolo and his guests are really nice, friendly and polite. i really hope to host his guests and work with him again.
