This was our second stay at Ca' Zora and we specifically booked the ground floor apartment again with its own little courtyard, which is a lovely suntrap to have breakfast.
The location is brilliant, just off Campo Santa Maria Formosa, and only a few minutes' walk from St Mark's. But it does take some finding! Once you know your route, it's great. There's a little supermarket, grocers, bakers etc all in easy reach.
The flat is well equipped, the Wi-Fi looks like it has been sorted as we had good access in the lounge/kitchen and courtyard. There are 2 comfortable double bedrooms one of which is en suite. Air conditioning, TV, 2-ring hob, grill, fridge and a mish-mash of kitchen paraphernalia.
I love the fact that both times we have been, some bits and bobs left by the previous visitors has been left, like washing up liquid, olive oil, salt, pepper, etc. I find it really annoying that some places strip everything, (even down to loo roll) which is really annoying when you are planning to self-cater. No such worries at Ca' Zora. If I was going to be picky, as another reviewer mentioned the towels are scratchy - but perfectly clean, and I would suggest an extractor fan in the main bathroom.
We were given a map with points of interest marked up, although we didn't particularly rate the restaurant we tried.
What I would say is that if you are looking for a modern bright and shiny pied-a-terre, then this probably wouldn't suit. The paint and plaster is a bit tired and crumbly in a couple of places, but the place is clean, and I gather they are planning to sort that out soon.
If we go back to Venice again, we will definitely be staying here again.

- Now picture this. You walk in. The photos you've seen on internet are fakes. Where you are in, it's actually a stinking dark wet hole. The bed is a bed-bugs house and the bathroom resembles a crackhouse. That's because you haven't booked my house! ... more less
