We both really enjoyed our stay at Nicola's place, the room and bathroom were very clean and spacious as the description and pictures show. Nicola was friendly and accommodating providing information on local amenities that we requested and the breakfast while basic is exactly as described and plentiful. We would happily recommend this place to anyone, the only comment that we would make is that we had to be a little flexible with our arrival time as Nicola requested we check in prior to 3pm when we had hoped to do so around 5pm, but this was really not a problem for us and he in turn was very flexible with our check out time and let us leave our luggage at his place as late as we needed to. Thank you Nicola!
Nicola made up the Blue Room for the two of us, which was very cosy. There is a little alcove with a lovely balcony feeling to it. Our stay was great, the location was perfect for us: just seconds away from the beach and a vaporetto ride plus a manageable stroll from Venice proper. If you're in Venice for only a couple of days, you might want to look for something more central. But if you want to see something apart from the Canal Grande, Nicola's is the right spot for you.
Nicola himself is great too, very helpful when needed, trusting and easy-going. Thanks Nicola, we had a great time!
We really enjoyed our stay in this room. Lido is a very calm island, so after a walk and sightseeings in Venezia, it was always nice to return in Lido. The location is very nice as well, just near the beach, we liked to start or finish our days by a walk on a beach shore and breathing sea air. Nicola recommended some very good restaurants where we always had lunches and dinners.
However, we couldn't enjoy the breakfast fully which was offered by Nicola as the kettle had always some white beads which didn't wash away and always get into the tea cups. So we had to go out for tea. And there was no mosquitos net so my friend had all face and back in mosquitos bites, it was horrible to see. And just a little aware, there are only 2 sockets (which are also of old standard, but there is one adapter as well) not in a comfortable place so you might should take one adapter and extender if you use many technics. We didn't, so it didn't bring any problems. And also the blanket was very thin for autumn nights, therefore it was cold and we had to close all the windows tight.
But overall, all those little things were too little for such a great city as Venice. And we fell in love with Lido and La Tavernetta restaurant which is just round the corner. So I fully recommend this room and want to thank Nicola for being so hospitable.
Response from Nicola:
Hi inna, I'm glad you liked Lido and stay at my place. I just wonder why you didn't ask me to fix up the things who didn't work for you. I'm here, I'm your host, just tell next time!
I really enjoyed my stay. Nicola is a great host! I didn't confirm my arrival time and got to the place very late. I called Nicola and he met me in 30 min! He gave me some god tips on where to go.
The apartment is very clean and spacious and is just a block away from the beach. Ts about 15-20 min commute to the center but its easy to get to. I would recommend this place.
Nicola was very nice, He provided us with very useful information about getting around the city and Lido. We enjoyed staying on the island rather than Venice. It was nice to escape from the crowds at the end of the day. The room was very clean and was very close to the local bus stops. Make sure you get a pass to get around Venice if you stay here. It will come in very handy.
Great room and private bathroom. Nicola is very friendly and helpful while also being very professional. Nicola organised breakfast so once we had enrolled we didn't meet again. This gave us privacy but I found it a little sad. I'd recommend it. Thanks
Приятный хозяин. В меру сил старается помочь советами. Комната красивая чистая и приятная. Удобное место. Море рядом. Поездка до С.Марко не долгая и романтичная. Не была обременительной. Проездной билет на нужное число дней лучше брать и кататься на водных трамвайчиках и автобусах (на Лидо) без проблем хоть до одури. Даже на гондолах не захотели кататься. Но это дело вкуса.

Have absolutely no hesitation recommending the Blue Room other than I would hate to miss out on a booking next year! Nicola is the consummate host: courteous, informed and obliging in every way. I felt right at home and absolutely secure. Sharing a bathroom with the Red Room was easy to negotiate and waking up to breakfast on a tray (waiting in the small, shared entry hall) each morning a lovely way to start the day. Be mindful that if you're planning a visit during film festival time (in early September) the DJ sets at official parties nearby can go quite late on occasional nights - two out of the seven nights I stayed, for example - but frankly if you can't sleep, you should just get amongst it!
Response from Nicola:
Thank you so much, Roberta
all the best
