“Just short of perfect”
Reviewed October 3, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

This apartment is beautiful. Comfortably furnished and caters for everything you may need, including toiletries so can save on some packing (for a short trip). The rooftop terrace or 'altea' offers breathtaking views over the city and a wonderful vantage point should you have the treat of a lightning storm, or time to relax with a glass of Prosecco after a day of sightseeing or shopping.
May not suit elderly or infirm however as the apartment is 5 floors up with no lift. Getting the luggage upstairs was a task.

Overall though - This apartment is beautiful and a great place to stay. I'd have no trouble recommending it or Views on Venice who manage it

“Superb”
Reviewed October 16, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

The apartment was fantastic - spacious and well appointed, with an amazing roof terrace giving views across the city. It was well appointed. clean and beautifully furnished. The travel guides and books were a useful addition. It was centrally situated, so all major attractions were easily accessible by foot or water bus. I cant wait to stay there again !!

“Can't wait to come back”
Reviewed August 1, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Had a wonderful stay in Venice mostly due to this fantastic apartment. We visited in July and knew it would be very hot so spent some time finding somewhere with a terrace. We were so glad we chose this one as when we came back in the afternoon to chill and sunbathe we still felt we were site-seeing with the fantastic 360 degree views of this wonderful city.

The apartment itself was spotless and comfortable and Views on Venice were exceptional in the service they provided from the booking process through to Christina meeting us from the water taxi and taking us to the apartment on arrival. There was a supermarket 5 minutes from the apartment and many good restaurants up some of the side streets nearby that offered fantastic food at slightly more reasonable prices.

There are a lot of stairs up to the apartment which having read other reviews after I had booked was worried about. They were challenging at the time and although I had hoped I would be able to do them in a oner by the end of the week, I always had to take a break after the fifth flight. Saying that they weren't really a problem even in 30 degree heat and as 2 not really that fit 50 year olds I am pleased to say the teenagers were as much out of breath as we were and we recovered just as quickly. The entrance hall to the apartments is very grand and the view from the top made it more than worth while.

On our last morning we set our alarms to get up and watch the sunrise over the rooftops of Venice as we wanted to make the most of this wonderful vista. We have already recommended this apartment to friends and when and if we come back to Venice we would make it our first choice.

Thank you so much for writing in. Delighted to hear that things went so well for you (and that the stairs proved worthwhile). Hoping that we see you in Venice again soon.

Ciao Judith, thanks so much for letting us know how you got on during your holiday - I'm really pleased you liked the apartment but it's such a pity the weather wasn't kinder - I just wish we could have fixed it for you! (also to mention that a new supermarket is due to open at some stage later in the year (date to be confirmed) only a very short distance from Ca' Del Gabbiano so making it easier to shop for supplies in the future). Regarding the pillows - we are on to it! and are arranging for more to be supplied - please accept our apologies for this and thank you for bringing it to our attention (I would always urge guests to contact us immediately if they require anything extra such as this as we're always more than happy to help wherever possible). Hoping very much that we see you again and sending you and your family all good wishes from Venezia.
