A perfect stay in Venice

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our 4 night stay at this large apartamento in Venice. It is conveniently located between the Canneregio & Castello neighborhoods. The building is situated on a canal next to the grand Piazza Giovanni e Paolo, one of the great piazzas of Venice. This old building can be seen in many historic paintings. However the apartment is modern and well furnished. It is a large apartment with a kitchen, dining room table, living area, bedroom, and of course the terrace with a great view. There is a washing machine, wi-fi, air conditioning, ironing board, everything we needed. The queen bed was comfortable, and we had no problem with noise. The owners Sabrina & Pietro are very nice, speak English, and made sure we were settled in with everything we needed. When we arrived there was no wait to get into the apartment, and Sabrina was in contact with us by phone and text. As to the wonderful terrace, it made our trip to Venice! We have stayed in Venice twice before but this time is was a joy to just sit and relax with a glass of Prosecco and gaze at the view of the Basilica di San Giovanni e Paolo, and watch the people walk by below us. The street, Calle Larga Gallina has many little shops, a couple of cafes and one really good restaurant, Osteria da Alberto. It's a popular and very cool area. It is a short walk to the Rialto Bridge, and Piazza San Marco. I can't think of a more convenient area to everything Venetian. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. And will if we visit Venice again. The only very minor complaint was the problem we had with the TV. But who cares!?! You're in Venice. Who wants to watch TV? Thank you Pietro & Sabrina & son for a perfect stay in Venice!

Perfect location and Very Cooperative Landlord

  • 5 of 5
I wanted to spend a month in Venice pursuing my photography and found this apartment. Its location is great [right across the street from SSGiovanni & Paolo and near the hospital]. The ACTV vaporetto stops are not too far, and not much else is either. Lots of shops, easy walk to Rialto Market, lots of cafes and interesting sites to visit, all within easy walking distance [generally true of Venice, I suppose, but much of what you might want is found very close to this apartment]. All of my contacts and communications with Sabrina were excellent and whenever I wanted or needed anything, she was very helpful.

The apartment is clean, not fancy but certainly taken care of. It has a shower and plenty of warm water [after the first minute of running it]. It's a very secure place, with several locks and doors to protect your belongings as you wander. And I felt quite safe, alone and at night, in the area. The people are very friendly and helpful as well.

The ice cream/gelato shop across the way is wonderful, and there are some small pastries and bars/cafes within a block. One negative was the bar across the way; the people were fine but a bit noisy, tho it closed at 9:30pm most nights at the latest. By the time 10pm rolled around all was quiet in the area. The apartment itself is clean, well-appointed. I was able to shop at the market and come home to cook simple but tasty meals.

There is a TV and stereo [neither of which I used, tho they worked fine] and plenty of Wi-Fi internet, although it tended to have a weak signal other than in the kitchen. As I worked at the table there, that wasn't a problem for me.

All in all I would definitely return and rent again, for a month or less time. It was a very good experience and I highly recommend the apartment, particularly if you want to avoid the tourist areas.

A jewel in a wonderful city.

  • 5 of 5
We had a very enjoyable visit to Venice. One of the highlights of our 2 week stay was spending our time at Sabrina's wonderful apartment. The apartment, located at campo Sts. Giovanni e Palo, is a very clean and tidy space with a neat terrace overlooking the campo and the neighborhood calle directly below.


The apartment is quite spacious and includes a complete kitchen, dining area, living room with an entertainment center, bathroom and comfortable bedroom. Sabrina has decorated the interior with quite interesting works of art. It is obvious that she takes great pride in making her visitors feel very welcome.

What we especially enjoyed was being in a neighborhood where we could observe Venetians' going about their daily lives. Yet, we were within easy walking distance to the main attractions of this beautiful city and to the vaporettos.

Thank you, Sabrina for making this gem of an apartment available.

Jack and Karen

The Perfect Spot

  • 5 of 5
My husband, 15 year old daughter, 12 year old daughter, and I stayed in this lovely apartment for 4 nights. More than how much we loved that apartment was located near everything we needed, we loved that it was NOT located near all the tourist attractions. We could get to St. Marks and the Rialto in a short walk, but it was nice to be outside the crowds when we wanted to be. The terrace was our favorite thing about the apartment. We would set the table to eat dinner outside, and we would sit and watch the Venetians being Venetians. My kids loved that a gelato bar was right below, and my husband enjoyed the bars. The apartment was very modern and clean.

A Venetian Gem

  • 5 of 5
Many thanks to kSabrina and Paolo for the use of this beautiful apartment for one month in October. We loved Venice and we "lovvved" the apartment. Making arrangements on-line with Sabrina was easy. We appreciated being met at the unit. The apartment was everything advertised and more. It was clean, roomy, bright (lots of windows), well cared for (inside and out) and comfortable. It felt more like a home than "a rental" due to the wall art and glass. A few minor problems arose and were immediately addressed. We were fortunate to have lots of sunny weather and made use of the table and chairs on the balcony.

The apartment is away from the "beaten track" of tourists yet very close to all the main attractions. It is easy to access vaporetto stops either on the Grand Canal or the Hospital side of the island. Because we stayed for a month we purchased the IMOB pass and were able to use the vaporettos, paying like a local rather than like a tourist.

From our balcony we loved to watch and listen to the young children coming and going to school. The bar "Al Ponte" across from us was one of our favorite spots. Bar patrons were respectful of the residents. The wooden shutters on the apartment windows helped shut out noise. A person who needs absolute quiet to sleep could be bothered by the outside sounds.

Although there were small supermarkets close to us we shopped daily at the Rialto Market for our fresh veges, fruits and fish and used closer shops for breads and pastries. We found shopping at the Rialto to be very economical
We plan to return to Venice again and hope that we will be able to stay in Sabrina and Paolo's apartment.

Fantastic apartment! Great location!

  • 5 of 5
Sabrina and her husband were absolutely wonderful to work with prior to and during our stay. We had our account frozen when our bank thought our ATM withdraw was fraudulent and Sabrina was very understanding and worked with us on the deposit. The apartment has everything you will need. Sabrina has stocked it so that you have olive oil and coffee and various other amenities to make your stay more enjoyable. She gave step by step directions to the apartment from several vaporetto stops so that we never got lost. She provided a binder with useful information regarding restaurants, sites and manuals for the appliances. Having a washing machine was a major plus! The location of the apartment is ideal- it is right off of a major vaporetto stop and near some fantastic restaurants. There is a church you can visit steps from the apartment and in case of an emergency you are steps away from a pronto soccorso (emergency room). There is a grocer nearby for you to purchase items to make your own meals and Sabrina has stocked the kitchen with plenty of pans and spatulas to make it easy for you to choose this option for some or all of your meals. The apartment is not in the tourist section so it is very quiet at night- leading to great nights of sleep! The internet was also a great feature- we were able to call our bank using GoogleTalk and then call our parents to wish them Buon Natale! Thank you so much for a wonderful stay Sabrina- we can't wait to come back and stay again. Next time we are in Venice, we will most definitely book this apartment again.
