We loved this apartment because it was close enough to see St Mark's square and other popular attractions but far enough away to spend time at local venues to experience the local life. Elisabetta was the most wonderful host. Our luggage was delayed by the airline and she helped to facilitate the delivery of it. She welcomed us when we arrived, provided a wonderful fruit bowl and waters. She checked in with us to be sure our luggage arrived and to make sure we were comfortable with our accommodations. We really appreciated that she was available to us for any questions but also provided us privacy. We will definitely book this apartment on our next trip to Venice.
We were so well cared for by the owner - and the loft was a perfect romantic getaway (it would be great for a family too). It is fully stocked, new appliances, spacious, plenty of storage and the location couldn't be better. Easy access to everything, yet quiet. The view from the small balcony is breathtaking! We could have spent a month easily!
Nice cosy flat with all amenities. Elisabetta and her son were super friendly and helped us with question, advice and even printed out our boarding passes. The location of the flat is perfect. Off the beaten track among narrow alleyways, but 10-15 mins walk of most major sights.
We loved our stay in the apartment. The kitchen is really nicely equipped (the best we've had anywhere we have stayed in Italy) and included the food basics (olive oil, salt, pepper, and other spices). The apartment has a view onto two canals from a small (very small) balcony. It is so quiet here and yet is also so close to most of what you'll need. Elisabetta is lovely and provides clear directions on how to get there. The bed up in the loft was cozy and romantic. The whole place is warm (in the winter) and both elegant and cozy. Could not be better!
We stayed for four days and Elisabetta was a wonderful host. She provided us with great seafood restaurants recommendation, made sure she was available in case we needed anything. The apartment is charming and very well equipped, as well as spotless. A perfect place to stay. Would highly recommend it.
My partner & I stayed in this lovely apartment a few weeks before Christmas.It's location is perfect - off the main tracks by only a few minutes & beautifully quiet. There is a supermarket close by so you can take advantage of the cooking facilities & there are several really good restaurants in the area. We would particularly recommend Osteria all Staffa - great food & an unbelievable coffee menu but it's only a small place so definitely book a table! Our host was more than helpful , the information in the apartment was great & the facilities were perfect - so much so that if we travel back to Venice I will not be looking at anywhere else to stay!
We've been at Elisabetta's apartment for a week at the beginning of November 2017 and as usual we were totally delighted, since it was the second time we rented her place. Furthermore, we hope we'll have the chance to book for a third stay in a near future. Beyond all the multiples advantages of this apartment as mentionned by most other reviewers, it's location makes you feel genuinely the magic of Venice. Just steps from all points of interest, you remain far from the madding crowd, living quietly, sleeping deeply; you could almost imagine being a Venetian living his daily life.
And there is Elisabetta with her amiability and her steadfast thoughtfulness, always ready to help you solve problems that may be encountered by a foreigner.
Hard to wish better.
