Unique City, Wonderful Apartment

  • 5 of 5
We have had the fortune to have another extended off-season stay in Venice and again chose Sabrina and Paolo's apartment for our "home away from home". Venice is such an amazingly unique city and this apartment is such a comfortable place to stay. The unit is close to everything but is not on the noisy crowded "tourist trails" of Venice.

We chose to stay here again because everything inside and outside the apartment is well maintained, clean and comfortable. The unit shows that the owners are proud of it and proud to share it with their guests. The kitchen is fully equipped for meal preparations. The table is spacious for meals and game playing. The bedroom has plenty of storage space and a comfortable mattress. The bathroom is clean and spacious.

We followed Venice with time in Bologna and Florence. All were wonderful cities but none had the tranquility, mystery and community feel of Venice. To live in a city totally free of vehicles is a joy. We thank Sabrina and Paolo for their friendliness, hospitality and for their accommodation.

“a great apartment in an ideal location”

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for 8 nights at the end of August. This is not a place that was bought to be a rental...the owner lived there until her family outgrew the space . There is a marble-studded continuous floor, 2-position tall windows throughout, an air conditioner that keeps the bedroom right all night and the rest of the space comfortable all day. The bathroom is completely tiled in green, the fridge kept my chinotto cold, and the front loading washer saved me a trip to a laundry. The space is full of shelving, and there are lots of decorative glass pieces scattered about. There is a TV, and a full stereo system (even a turntable!), with Bose speakers mounted on the wall. The ceilings are part exposed beams, and the terrace is a great place to sit and watch life go by. This is a cut above most rental apartments. The only drawback is a rather weak and undependable WiFi signal which comes from municipal service in the Campo across the bridge rather than from a router in the apartment. Reception is best on the terrace.
The neighborhood is an ideal base for a Venice trip. There are 2 vaporetto (water bus) stops within easy walking distance, and the basilica and campo of Sts Giovanni and Paulo are huge and impressively beautiful. You can count on getting completely lost if you walk around much, but you'll always find the way back to an apartment that is right next to such a visible, well-known landmark. There is a well stocked grocery nearby, (the Co-op in Campo Santa Marina), and good coffee, good gelato, and a real Venetian meal are all within a block. This being Venice, there are plenty of tourists walking by and gathering across the bridge in the campo, but it is a relatively quiet place compared to the bedlam around St Mark's and the Rialto areas.
We took boats to Murano, Burano, the cemetery island, and Lido, as well as several rides around the city. Buy a pass when you arrive and ride anywhere at will. And after a busy day exploring, if you take my advice and rent this apartment, you will come home to a stylish, comfortable place to stay.

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.

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.
