A delightful stay in a beautiful apartment with the warmest of welcomes from Eliza . She is so attentive to her guests . Short walk from all the main sights and convenient for the vaporetto to Murano, Burano and the airport and station.
This is an ideally placed apartment away from the worst of the crowds. Great views over the lagoon to Murano. Fun watching the boats go by. Quiet. Superbly kitted out kitchen and comfortable living room and bedrooms. One of the best things was having a very friendly, helpful and informed owner in Elisa. She gave us good suggestions of where to go and where to eat without intruding on us. Felt very looked after and an enjoyable stay.
We are a family from New York and we stayed in this beautiful apartment for three days in August. First of all, it has a perfect location (however you choose to come to Venice - plane, train or car) - just a few steps from the Vaporetto station. Canareggio (in my opinion) is the best part of Venice - just a 15 min walk from San Marco, but not overcrowded, you can feel like you are all by yourself. The apartment itself is very nice and super clean. The kitchen is perfectly equipped even for a demanding cook. The two bedrooms are spacious and beautifully decorated. You will have a stunning view from the living room, and air conditioning makes your stay very comfortable even during hot August days.
And I would like to say about the owner, Elisa — she is an incredibly nice person. She waited for us at the boat station when we arrived from the airport, showed us the apartment and offered all kinds of information. Communication with Elisa was really easy and pleasant, and as a result - we had a beautiful vacation in Venice. I would definitely recommend this rental to my friends, and would like to return there again. Elena
Communication with the owner, Elisa, was very easy & prompt. We made arrangements for the rental, and then months later were on the ferry phoning her as we approached Venice. We were met at the ferry stop Fondamente Nuove and within minutes were entering the building located on the footpath of the lagoon. The apartment is on the first floor at the front so the view across the lagoon towards San Michele is ever-changing as boats & ferries slowly pass. The double glazing, however, prevents noise entering & helps maintain a comfortable temperature. The tastefully decorated rooms & well-appointed kitchen & bathroom made us feel at home immediately & gave us a comfortable haven to relax in after a hard day of sight-seeing.
There were plenty of restaurants, cafes & markets nearby & Elisa’s carefully explained notes on the area were a huge help in finding them. And it only takes ten minutes or so to reach the Rialto Bridge & St Mark’s square if you want more lively surroundings.
When it was time to depart Elisa kindly walked us to the ferry stop to say goodbye. We can’t fault either the apartment or the service we received & it was a magical holiday.
We were so impressed with the ease of communication with Elisa and, most especially, with the apartment itself. It is huge! The location is quiet yet a close, colorful walk to anywhere you'd want to be in Venice. Elisa is happy to serve as tour guide and then give you privacy. She offered us all kinds of information, including restaurants for my gluten- and dairy-free diet. This beautiful apartment is steps from the Fondament Nove dock, yet you don't hear the boats, even at night, due to the excellent windows. Your view is lovely, your kitchen would suit a culinary master, and all is provided in the best of taste. Stay in a tiny hotel room or book this full apartment with similar furnishings - we are glad we made the choice to stay here for three days. We wish we could have stayed longer!
We stayed here with our 9 year old daughter for 3 days and from the time of booking Elisa our host kept in contact with us. She told us the cost and times of the Alilaguna airport water shuttle and asked us to call her when we were on board and met us at Fondamente Nove our stop which was literally outside our front door!! Elisa showed us around and explained where everything was and then talked us through this blue folder which she had written in several languages. It contained maps showing you were the bakeries, supermarkets, recommended restaurants etc were. It was invaluable. The apartment was clean and spacious and all the appliances and fittings were high end- it was a home from home. The views from the living room window overlooking the lagoon were stunning.Elisa lived in the apartment on the floor above so was available if you needed her. She asked us what time our flight home was and told us what time our boat back to the airport was and on the morning of departure she knocked our door at 7.20 and walked with us to the stop and waited until we boarded and as we looked up to the apartment building we saw her waving from her balcony which we thought was a lovely gesture.We were lucky to have found this first class apartment , the location was only a 10 minute walk to San Marco so it was nice to get away from the crowds. Elisa was a perfect host and everything you have read in previous reviews are true. If we ever return to Venice we know where we will be staying!!!
Myself and two friends had a three night stay here in this lovely apartment For us it was a perfect location away from the crowds but within easy walking distance of all the main attractions.It is within a few metres of the alilaguna stop from the airport. The owner was there at the stop to escort us to the apartment and gave us lots of great advice on what to do and where to find things in Venice. The apartment is beautifully furnished and equipped with all modern conveniences. When we return to Venice we will certainly stay here
