“Felt like home”
Reviewed July 2, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

From the start, appreciated Ana's prompt replies to my emails. She made sure we had a good understanding of how to get to the vaporetto stop where she said she will meet us to take us to the apartment. Ana and her husband Donato, who are the perfect hosts, we're waiting at the vaporetto stop when we got there. Two small bridges to go up and down, and a stairway to go up to the apartment. A home made cake and a jar of milk was waiting for us when we arrived at the apartment.

Apartment is close to the vaporetto stop. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms, plus a separate living room and kitchen, so plenty of space for two couples. Apartment is very clean and homey, with complete dining and kitchen appliances for home made meals. It felt like home. It is walking distance to the Rialto bridge, and a longer walk to the St. Mark's cathedral. Just a few steps from the apartment are lots of restaurants and shops. Ana even brought us home made tiramisu on our last day.

We highly recommend Ana's apartment and won't hesitate to come back again. Thank you Ana!

Thoroughly enjoyed a relaxing stay in this historic apartment in a quiet part of the city. Anna was welcoming from the instant we stepped off the Vaporetto, including guiding us to the apartment and both she and her husband made sure our stay in Venice was memorable and relaxed.

“Perfect choice for our stay in Venezia”

Anna was the complete hostess - from meeting us off the boat, giving brilliant restaurant recommendations and tour guide tips to dropping us back at the boat, she was friendly and helpful yet never intrusive. As for the apartment, it was in a perfect location, very close to the Ponte de le tette and 5 mins walk to the Rialto, yet in a quiet residential area with a bakery and store just around the corner. The kitchen has all mod cons and the whole flat was spotlessly clean and well furnished. It is suitable for all age of guest, as my mum and baby loved it too! What better recommendation can I give than to say we will tell our friends and family about it and even plan to return one day!?! Thank you Anna - we loved Venezia and you helped to make it special!!

“Perfect apartment for a stay in Venice”
Reviewed October 9, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

person found this review helpful

As usual, Venice was bustling with tourists during our recent stay but La Gondoliera is tucked away in a quiet neighborhood while also convenient to all the sights and the train station. Anna was at the vaporetto stop to meet us when we arrived and accompanied us to the apartment, giving us a tour of the neighborhood as we made our way. The apartment was comfortable and has plenty of room. Anna was readily available to answer questions and offer suggestions and was a valuable source of helpful information about Venice and Italy. She teaches Italian history! She made us feel very welcomed even providing sweets when we arrived and a homemade dessert for our enjoyment the afternoon before our departure.
As others have mentioned, you travel over several small canal bridges from the vaporetto stop to the apartment which require going up and down a few steps at each bridge. The staircase to the apartment is narrow and steep but we soon became accustomed to going up and down it. We highly recommend the apartment.

Thank you Anna
We enjoyed tremendously staying in your apartment which is kept in a pristine condition. Your attention to details is impeccable for the comfort and conveniences of the guests. Everything is in 10-15 minutes walking distance. Lovely place and lovely town so much to enjoy.

And a very special gratitude to Anna our delightful host. She helped carry our suitcases to the apartment and arranged to help us to take them to the Vaporetto stop.

When booking unknown accommodation you hope for the best but are often disappointed, not in this case. For a start we were met from the water taxi by the owner the lovely Anna she couldn't have been more helpful and kind to us three ladies.
The apartment was very clean and extremely well appointed, home from home. We found it very spacious, comfortable and peaceful being in a quiet location but a stones throw from all the main features Venice has to offer, the perfect location with a great bakers around the corner.
We all want to return to Venice at the earliest opportunity and wouldn't hesitate in renting this fabulous apartment again, im sure the best value in Venice. Perfecto.

Second time to Venice and now know where we shall be staying when the third visit happens. The apartment was spotless, everything you needed and more. Anything happens the owner is very close by. All the family were helpful when we arrived.
Already had friends go and they loved as much as we did.....
Highly recommend.
