The house is very clean, the big double bed was comfortable and had lovely crisp cotton sheets. It's in a quiet location, friendly local people say hello! There are a couple of restaurants a 5 minute walk away but it's not buzzing with nightlife. The Co-op supermarket is a short walk and further along the front there is another supermarket. Air con was useful when it got hot. We cooked at home a couple of times and found everything we needed. There is a very good fruit and veg shop by the Palanca vaporetto stop. Cristina's husband met us at the vaporetto stop (5 min walk away) and then Cristina came to the house to greet us - she was very welcoming.
The giudecca is a wise choice for those who value privacy and escape from the buzz of the city. All the thrills are only 5 minutes away by vaporetto, and the views over the water are spectacular. Great value, too. Check it out!
This apartment is well situated. Spotlessly clean and amenities as described.
Local supermarket very good, and we cooked every day.
Highly recommended and will come again.
Giudecca is a wonderful place to stay in Venice. It is out of the way enough that we were never troubled by crowds, noise, or problems getting a restaurant reservation, even though we visited during Carnevale. Yet, a five minute walk and a short ride on the number 2 waterbus drops you right at St. Marks square. Just outside the apartment is a beautiful view of the city from across the water.
The apartment is modern, tastefully furnished and was very clean. Kitchen was well equipped and the hosts generously provided snacks and coffee. There is a good grocery store a short walk away for those who want to cook. The hosts are super friendly -- they met us at the waterbus stop and gave us a full intro to the area. Apartment was just as described and security deposit was refunded in full.
Stella Marina self catering apartments are brilliantly situated near the Grand Canal on the island of Guidecca. We really loved the location as it was away from the hustle and bustle of the main island, but still had gorgeous views across the Grand Canal. Guidecca is fascinating in its own right and the water bus goes across to the main island about every 10 minutes.
The apartment was very clean and well equipped. Booking and directions from Cristina were excellent and we were met very warmly from the water bus and taken to the apartment. They showed us the local area and gave some excellent recommendations of what to do, where to shop etc. They kindly stored our luggage on the last day as we had a late afternoon flight. Lovely, genuine people and a great stay in Venice.
