                        The apartment is a perfect location. The beds are comfortable and the view of the Grand Canal is invigorating. Watch life pass by with tourists, locals, deliveries, garbage collection...all on boats. We started our visit with a photo tour with Marco Secchi. Highly recommend it as we walked around leisurely taking photos as Marco chatted about Venice. Favorite stay in Italy.

                        Owner response: Dear Michael , we are happy you enjoyed your staying at the apartment ! Yes , beds are very comfortable, we change matresses regoularly , we know how important a good sleep is after the many walks to discover our beautiful city ! glad you enjoyed the tour with Marco and you enjoied watching the waterways from our big window !

                        This is a perfect place to stay for any length visit to Venice. I completely disagree with the other review that says it was noisy or tired. On the contrary the flat is gorgeous, elegant, well-appointed, spacious, well-maintained, comfortable and most important spotless. Also regarding the courtyard and dock outside the window. The view is stunning. And yes people congregate there at the Taverna Al Remner for the excellent cocktail hour they host from 5:30 to 7:30. The noise can carry but NOT where you sleep. All three bedrooms are on the back portion of the building and behind gorgeous wood doors. I am a light sleeper and I had no problem sleeping through the weekend and weeknights I spent here. A perfect place and well priced.

                        Recommended for: Families with teenagers, age 55+, people with disabilities, girls getaway, families with young children, sightseeing, romantic getaway, tourists without a car, adventure seekers.

                        Owner response: dear Stacy, thank you for the generosity of your comments...we also don't think you can hear any noise from the bedrooms , we lived there for years before renting. We take a costant care of the apartment , Venice is very demanding on this aspect! Hope we can see you back soon .. warm regards Stefano Del Vecchio

                        This apartment is stunningly beautiful and space is practical. We loved having this place to return to after venturing out into the weekend crowd of carnival with 4 young children. The view from the front room to the canal is as advertised. We had a fun family game night with scrabble and food from the restaurant next door. As mention in other reviews, there is considerable amounts of noise in the front living space from restaurant patrons that spill out in the common plaza. The noise does not travel to the bedrooms and did not impact the ability of our children to sleep at a decent hour. Don't pass up a chance to shop for fresh food at the Rialto market less than 5 mins away. Meeting Erica was painless even though our train was significantly delayed. She was extremely helpful in orienting us to our surroundings both in the apartment and around the neighborhood. We loved the feel of this apartment so much that we were taking pictures of features we'd love to have in our own home. A gem!

                        Despite some nervous moments during the rental process because of website phishing, our stay went off very well. We used paypal and had no issues. The property agent was on time and easily accessible. We loved the property, location was terrific. We are used to living in older renovated quarters, and this property certainly fits that description, we thought it charming. Heat worked well. Plenty of hot water. Property was clean. I did contact the manager to advise of some flickering lights in the living room fixture, just as a precaution. We had some issues with the wireless and kept having to re-boot. Wireless access was important for us because of work, but worked well enough, did not report the issue, no different from being at home. It snowed while we were there, we enjoyed having the kitchen for hot tea and breakfasts in. Highly recommended. By the way, we were a group of 3 adults and 2 children ages 7 and 15, apartment was perfect for us and I hope we can stay again sometime.

                        The apartment has a restaurant next door down stairs. I saw that someone wrote that it was noisy on a review and emailed the owner. They made it sound like it was not a common problem. Wrong. The overflow from the restaurant pours out to the area directly under the living room of the apartment. They were even serving food out there. Picture about 30 people eating and drinking under your window until quite late. The apartment was fine, a little tired but OK. I think the price is far too much. I contacted the person in charge and told her I was unhappy as soon as I got home and had access to a computer. I even sent a picture of the people there and said I had recorded the noise. She said she would contact the owner and that is the last I heard of it. Too bad for me.

                        An amazing apartment in a great location ideal for Rialto Bridge and St Marks square. The photos do not do the apartment justice, it is much better in person! It was clean, tidy and well equipped. The beds were very comfortable with adequate bedding. The supplied wi-fi came in handy for looking up information and could accommodate a number of devices. However we were not given the correct details for when we arrived in Venice regarding the apartment. Luckily we had the name of the bar next door so were able to find the apartment. The phone number we were given was inactive and it took us over 2 hours to track down someone to help us so we could gain access to the property. This cost us due to accessing data roaming charges. Even though we gave our mobile number to be contacted on, we were emailed and had to phone them again costing us! This initially upset us, being 5 girls in the dark wondering where we were going to sleep that night. Eventually we were greeted by Erica, who was fabulous and very helpful. Luckily once we were settled we enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this apartment. As a tip we would strongly suggest confirming details with the owner before you arrive to ensure you have the correct information. We loved Venice and can't wait to visit again!

                        Owner response: Dear Charlotte, glad you liked the apartment and enjoyed Venice ! Erica was also waiting for your call for two hours, the number was correct , perhaps there was confusion about how to dial outside your country. Anyhow, the main thing is you enjoyed your staying.

                        We stayed here with our two children, ages 7&9 and in laws, a total of 6 of us. Erica met us at the Rialto vaparetto stop and we walked about 4-5 minutes to the apartment. Erica was great in pointing out places around the city on a map to see, eat and drink. On the last day she arranged our water taxi to the airport. The apartment itself was ideal. It had a 3 large bedrooms, 2 large baths that worked out very well. The wifi worked as advertised. The dining room has the view of the canals. My wife and I sat there in the evenings drinking wine and watching the boats and gondolas go by. The restaurant on the first floor was absolutely fantastic! It had a fabulous atmosphere, good wines by the glass and probably the least expensive tapas buffet in the world. Only 2 euros all you can eat. Wine was around 7 euros a glass. I cannot recommend it enough. Taverna Al Remer is the best. Live music every night too. Overall this is a fantastic place to stay. Only a couple minutes to Rialto Bridge, 12-15 minutes to St. Marks Square, and about 20 minutes walk to the north vaparetto stop to Murano Island. Overall a really fantastic trip and wonderful apartment.

                        Love the apartment. However extremely noisy. Sounded like other people were in apartment. Very disappointed in Venice. Have dreamed of visiting my entire life. We all felt it was a dirty, dumpy City. However the people at this place were great to deal with, not their fault Venice is like Philadelphia.

                        apartment was perfect in every way, amenities, comforts, location and even the representative who met us. would highly recommend. however, because you enter walking up a rather steep staircase, i would not recommend for people with disabilities. as a matter of fact, i would not recommend venice for anyone who needs assistance walking.
