My wife and I just returned from a three-week vacation in Nortnern Italy. We spent three nights at Vanessa House during our visit to Venice, and found the choice to be one of best choices we made during our entire trip.
Elena is a gracious and charming host. She was helpful in assisting with our travel plans, and responded quickly to our email communications in advance of our departure from Florida. It was clear from the moment we met her that she is sincerely interested o achieve five-star status for her B & B, and demonstrated an objective willingness to receive feedback about what she might do to improve her service and her accommodations.
Actually, there is very little to improve, other than perhaps the sameness of the breakfasts each morning and the less than impressive quality of the towels. Aside from these two small issues, our experience at Vanessa House ranked as one of the most memorable parts of our entire trip.
To begin with, the house is expansive, nicely decorated, clean and well maintained. Our room was accessed by a private spiral stairway that led to a landing that provided a private and serene view onto the lush lawn behind the house. Our room and private bath provided a comortable and quiet retreat from a day trip into Venice. Indeed, the location of this B & B in Marellago affords the unforgettable opportunity for relaxing in the outdoor patio area, with its calm and soothing views, without sacrificing access into the City. A bus stop is conveniently located within 300 feet of the B & B, making it easy and relaxing to travel to Venice in no more than 30 minutes.
For anyone looking to avoid the stress and strain of hauling luggage into Venice, boarding a boat, and then walking to a much more expensive accommodation, Vanessa House is without question the place to consider. It is truly a safe and relaxing haven away from the crowds. In fact, we met several guests who were so entranced by the location and the relaxation that envelopes Vanessa House, they gave serious consideration to remaining on the property and abandoning their plans to travel into Venice for the day.
When we return to Venice, we will be certain to rebook with Elena. For those ot you looking to relax in what otherwise could well be the stressful environment of a city like Venice, we suggest you give serious consideration to making your reservations with Elena as soon as possible. You will not regret your choice, and you will be more relaxed and content for doing so.
