This apartment is located close to the train station/bus terminal. Although this proves to be a little bit outside of all the major tourist sites and activities, they were easily accessible. We walked all over Venice and used the vaporettoes to get around, which were accessible close by.
The apartment was very clean and spacious. Located on the second floor (no elevators), it was easy to access. It has lots of windows that provided good air circulation and natural light. The kitchen was properly equipped, with a dining area right beside it. The entrance to the bathroom was preceded by a smaller room that included a washing machine. The bedroom was huge and included a sitting area with a sofa. This proved useful on those very warm evenings where we wanted to stay at the apartment as the A/C is located in the bedroom.
Comfortable apartment with a very large bedroom and all the amenities you will need for your stay. Cinzia met us at the coach stop and to took us to the apartment and showed us everything we needed to know. The apartment is a few yards from a canal in a quieter area, yet with many good restaurants and shops and craft workshops within a few minutes walk. We liked the local area very much and it was a good place to find an evening meal away from the hustle and bustle of central Venice. The vaporetto routes were close by to all areas and islands. Very easy and quick to reach wherever we wanted to go. Cinzia , and Lucia the owner were easily to contact and responded quickly to our questions. Great service and highly recommended.
Santa Croche must be the perfect location for a peaceful stay in Venice. It's close to all forms of transport has all the amenities you need at the door and is quiet and relatively free of other tourists. We amused ourselves watching others repeatedly drag their suitcases up stairs over canals getting to other locations. Be aware that unless you take a very, very short water taxi ride you will have to do this getting to Lucia's place too. The apartment is large, light and airy and has an authentic Venetian feel. We were met near the station as arranged and provided with all the support we could have wanted . I won't bother to look elsewhere when we return.
We enjoyed our stay in Lucia's lovely apartment. Communication with Lucia was very easy and she responds quickly to queries, and met us without a hitch.
The apartment was very clean and in great condition, and the inclusion of a washing machine and dishwasher was a bonus. Apart from the modern bathroom, the best thing about Lucia's apartment is the beautiful big (enormous!) peaceful bedroom. There is a restaurant below the bedroom, but the beautiful new joinery is double glazed and very effective at blocking street noise. There are not many windows and limited views (with just a glimpse of the canal) from the apartment, so it can be a bit dark, but this is probably not unusual for Venice buildings.
There is an apartment above and while we there the upstairs tenant made quite a lot of loud noise at night, so earplugs will help.
Well located near the station. Very clean and well equipped. Good restaurants nearby including a vegan one.
As this was our second visit to the beautiful city of Venice, we desired an apartment close to the train station yet within walking distance to Rialto Bridge, St. Marks Square, etc. The Santa Croce neighborhood is quiet yet possess all the amenities you will need for a short or extended stay. Restaurants, cafes, grocery stores, bakeries, and of course wine stores are all at your disposal.
The apartment itself is located on a quiet street with a cafe on the ground floor. Very clean,tidy, and equipped with you will need including cooking utensils, stove, microwave, and refrigerator. As we like to explore all day and come home to a glass or two of wine in the late afternoon, we most often decide to cook at the apartment utilizing local food from the grocery store, this apartment worked very well.
A step or two out the door and you are immersed in the sights, smells, and energy Venice offers. Canals, and bridges everywhere, it was so much fun roaming the city getting lost from time to time. The Venice Water Ferry system is located a few steps from the apartment and offers 24 hour passes at a reasonable rate. With a pass, Murano, Burano, and other out islands are now within your reach. Make sure to budget time for these remarkable historic islands.
A great apartment for two, or in a pinch 3 with the sofa bed, Elegant Apartment Canal View is a wonderful home base in Venice with a great value!
Lovely, spacious apartment in a quiet street in Venice close to transport for all directions. We walked everywhere and also within 5 minutes are the Grand Canal vaporetto stop, the train station and the main bus plaza. High ceilings, lots of light, and a fully-equipped kitchen. Pull-out couch for our daughter worked perfectly. Lucia was a gracious host and even met us very late at night to help us into the apartment. She even left us a free bottle of wine for our stay! We loved our visit and definitely want to return. Highly recommended!
