We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay in Sabrina and Paolo's apartment. Clean and nicely appointed. Lots of room! We hope to return to Venice soon!

Great place to stay in an ideal location

  • 5 of 5

It was wonderful to look out of the window every day onto Santi Giovanni e Paulo basilica. Our stay was during December and we had unusually cold, wet weather ( even snow), but after the first few hours the heaters warmed up the old stone building and we were comfortably warm. There was plenty of hot water. The kitchen was well-equipped, and once we found our way to the Coop supermarket it was a quick trip to Santa Marina campo for groceries. It was too cold to enjoy the terrace, which Im sure in any other season, or even on somewhat warmer winter mornings would be lovely.

The bed was comfortable, as was the couch where we often sat to read and snack and visit.

Reading light, especially in the bedroom, could have been better. Sabrina also supplied adapter plugs for electrical items, although we had brought our own.

We used What’s App to communicate, and always got prompt responses to our questions. A notebook supplied much information, including directions for the washing machine.

Four locks to get in and out were a bit many to manage, but worth the struggle. I suspect you could leave one of the final door locks open at times, but you would have to be careful to not lock yourself out on the terrace accidentally, so best to always have the keys wirh you.

We loved that we could always ask for directions to Ospedale or Santi Giovanni e Paulo when we were lost, and sometimes there were even signs pointing the way. The Ospedale and Fondamente Nove vaporetto and Alilaguna stops from airport and train were close by. It was lovely being in sight of a historic landmark, while still being a bit out of the most touristy part ofbeautiful Venezia. Some nice restaurants nearby also. A week was not long enough, especially on short December days. I would love to return.

We highly recommend this apartment. Wonderful location.

  • 5 of 5

We were more than thrilled with our experience in beautiful Venice! We were able to feel a little more a part of the "Venice Life" staying in this wonderful apartment. It was very clean and well appointed. Just the right size with excellent closets and storage. Nice bathroom , great heat when we needed it at night. Comfortable bed. A kitchen you could really cook in. Everything we needed! We loved the shutters and windows, and the beautiful front door. We spent each morning and evening on the terrace. The location was outstanding. We loved to watch the flow of people on the bridge. Many taking pictures of the front of the house. Being across from a beautiful Basilica and Square ensured there was always life nearby. And so many restaurants to choose from! Being on the canal and so close to the Fondamente Nove made water transportation to anywhere we wanted to go, easy. A beautiful walk to San Marco, Rialto area. Finding our way home was made easier being so close to a well known site. Working with Sabrina and Paolo was very easy. Sabrina was very helpful and easy to reach. Wifi was without a problem. We hope to return, soon and often.

Great space....

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was in a great part of town nestled right next to a canal. Close to water taxi stops and restaurants and a great piazza. I would stay again in a heartbeat. The owner was fantastic to work with.
