This apartment is spaceous, comfortable and located in a very good area in Venice; near shops, good restaurants, train station and vaporetto stations. The owner met us promptly at a place between the station and the apartment and was very kind with us, providing us a map and a few useful hints about the city!
There are just two things that should be noticed: (1) there are 4 sets of stairs for reaching the apartment (and no elevators), so be aware in case you are traveling with people with problems of climing stairs - which was not my case fortunately; (2) we were in Venice during a very hot July (around 34 degress celsius!) and the apartment has two fans, and one of them does not produce much wind. For this reason, it was a bit unconfortable sleeping at night. A new powerful fan would easily solve this problem though. I definitely recommend this place.

This holiday experience was excellent. The meet and great arrangements with Sabina went very smoothly and we were taken to the apartment on the Calle del Magazen quickly from the point of meeting her. The apartment was as described with all we needed for a 4 night stay. It was a very well appointed apartment and the canal view from one of the bedrooms was great, lying in bed hearing boats pass was delightful. The only drawback was the lack of instructions for the microwave but then that may be down to me as I don't have one at home!
There are a wide range of bars and restaurants nearby and the Billa supermarket it only 5 minutes walk.which is a real bonus. Among the bars Al Timon and Veno Vero are worth a visit. Each is open until after midnight and serve great value wines. I know some reviewers have felt the lack of WiFi was a drawback but sometimes not accessing email and 24 hour news is a good thing. That's why we go on holiday to get a break. As always it was great to be back in Venice and I thoroughly recommend this appartment and the Cannaregio area.
