  • Great apartment and a wonderful host!

    "Spent several great days with two girlfriends at the end of the Venetian Carnival in this lovely apartment. The real Casa dei Greci apartment was even better than the listing description, with a big kitchen full of modern appliances, utensils, and all that is needed for a getaway (including unlimited supply of scrumptious coffee, and a bottle of prosecco waiting for guests in the fridge!!) There are two bedrooms, one with a good king size bed, the second with a sofa and with ensuite bathroom. Everything is spotlessly clean, new, nicely decorated... The only thing we missed (a bit) was a normal living room to take a rest after a long day ramblings across wonderful Venice. The kitchen though has comfortable chairs and a big dining table. Bed-linens, and towels, and bathrobes (yes, there are even bathrobes!!) are very good. The location is unrivalled, 10 minutes from San Marco square, five minutes from S. Zaccharia vaporetto stop, but in a very quiet side street, so it is comfortable to sleep with open windows, even in the hustle of carnival! The host - Isabella - is very friendly, sociable and helpful! She arranged our transfer from the airport and met us at the dock in heavy rain and wind, and she took care of everything we asked for during our stay. We felt almost at home. Isabella also runs a great restaurant behind the corner - Oliva Nera. It is really good, we had dinner there twice and both meals were just yummy! The selection of wines is also very good, ask Isabella what goes well with your dishes! I definitely recommend this great apartment to everybody travelling to Venice! Isabella, we miss you already, and we hope to come back soon!"

  • Wonderful!

    "Hi Stefania, thank you so much for your help during our stay. The apartment was wonderful, very well equipped, great proximity and a great view out the window. If you needed anything you found it in this apartment, we were able to eat in or out with great restaurants near and grocery stores as well. We had four in our company my wife and our two sons with plenty of room without running into each other. The bed rooms were clean as was the bedding, etc. plus there was a washing machine as well. The whole apartment was clean which was so nice to walk into after a long drive. Stefania was very helpful in giving directions as well as suggesting places to visit and things to do. It was a great experience. I would caution anyone that does not like stairs or has difficulty in climbing stairs to keep this in mind (it is the top floor, at least four flights). There is a lift but it is not for public use. We handled the stairs fine but just a word of caution."

  • Real Venice

    "This was our first trip to Venice and we didn't care where we stayed as long as it was comfortable, quiet, and affordable. This place sounded perfect, and we were happy that we received such quick emails from Barbara explaining how to get there and answering any questions. So -- here are the pro's and con's of our visit. Pro's It is blissfully quiet. No partying or stomping around of other tenants. It rained the whole time we were there so we were unable to sit in the tiny sliver garden downstairs, but it was very private and we would have enjoyed that. Our bed was heavenly -- soft sheets, great pillows, lots of blankets to choose from. We slept VERY well while we were there (and we were only there for 3 nights). Barbara has some great books -- they perch in many places and in many rooms. I wished I could have stayed longer just to read some of them! The apartment is eclectically decorated, which we enjoyed. The windows could be opened and you could see slivers of the Venice rooftops -- lovely. Her directions and suggestions were spot on -- and the person waiting for us was very sweet and friendly. She was worried that she didn't know enough English to explain, but she was excellent! The two bathrooms are beautiful! You take a shower and it gets everything else wet -- we thought this was a novelty and fun! Our son (who was 11) slept nicely in the living room -- we had to make up his bed, which meant moving a few hundred (just kidding) pillows, but that was fine. Had we needed to cook, the kitchen had everything needed --small, but who cares! The apartment is in a more residential area, but we walked everywhere with no problem, and that is with my husband who had just badly injured his foot and was using a cane. There was a corner cafe that we spent some time in just around the corner and it/they were lovely. A washer and dryer to use! That was wonderful! CON'S This was not really a "con" for us, as we enjoyed this bit. But if you have trouble with stairs, this is neither the city or the apartment for you. Fortunately, we thought it was fun and just added to the romance of our adventure there are two steep flights going up to the apartment. But for someone with bad knees or poor health, this could be a detriment. The final thing is that the owner asked if she could rip up the $200 deposit check. My husband said no, to please send it. And she never did. So we had to put a stop on it, which was disappointing."
