Venetian Honeymoon Suite Right on the Grand Canal

Bedrooms 1
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Description of bedroom suite: Bedroom with bathroom on the ground (Canal) floor, with two double windows directly onto the Grand Canal; the wavelets lap six feet beneath the windows! Outside the very private, locked bedroom suite there is a foyer area where guests may sit and even leave luggage--next to which a Canal door opens onto a dock on the Grand Canal. At the back, a garden/courtyard and a large entrance hallway are at the disposal of guests. Please note that when owners or their friends are staying in the separate upstairs apartment (they are not always there), they will use the foyer for access to the dock and boat, and the back garden/courtyard as well. Television, wireless internet, refrigerator, microwave, electric kettle are available. There is no kitchen however or real kitchen facilities.

Description of site: the apartment is located in a Palazzo in the most exclusive area of Venice in San Marco, and faces onto the Grand Canal. A very popular family cafe-restaurant is one minute from the front gate of the Palazzo where an excellent breakfast as well as the other meals are available. While it is very practical for all communications, located two minutes between two Vaporetto stops (Sant'Angelo and San Samuele) and one minute from a traghetto stop (to cross the Canal), within three minutes to the elegant San Stefano square and ten minutes walk to the Rialto, it is well out of the tourist flow and very quiet and peaceful.

About Marie-Helene

I am a novelist, half a dozen books, travelling between Paris, Venice and Panama. I also show my graphic work throughout Europe.

Marie-Helene purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Marie-Helene chose Venice

I spend not just 'vacations' here but throughout the year. Venice is one of the few cities which can really be called 'unique'; beauty walks with you throughout the city. Peace, beauty, delight.

What makes this apartment unique

From our windows I watch Venice sail down the Grand Canal; I can hop over to almost any part of the town by boat when I so wish, as well as get out to the delightful little islands which pepper the laguna. Peaceful in the midst of a much-visited place, because our house is out of the tourist paths but in the center of everything at the same time!

A special place!

  • 5 of 5

This charming apartment offers the rare, rare opportunity to have a one-of-a-kind experience in Venice. From peering out the beautiful old windows in the morning, through a sojourn on the dock during the day or in the sparkling evening, we had the privilege of being able to witness daily life on the Grand Canal. Other reviewers have painted a more detailed picture of the facilities and wonderful neighborhood, but I would just like to say that my husband and I feel extremely fortunate to have found this unique and delightfully intimate refuge.

Best location in Venice

  • 5 of 5

Location, location, location. Not only can you sit out On the Grand Canal and watch the world go bye, but you are centrally located to walk to all the top spots in Venice. Small but a great value for your money considering the location.

What sets this apart from other accomodations in Venice is the dock. We spent most evening just watching the comings and goings on the Grand Canal. The area isn't too touristy but also not too far from anything. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

True Venice experience.

  • 5 of 5

The location of the apartment is perfect! Only three minutes walk from St.Samuelle vaporetto 2 station. For Venice it is very important since there is no ground transportation and even if you take a taxi (there is only water taxi) you still has to walk to your place by feet with all your luggage.

It is very quite and picturesque place, true Venetian style. It has a dock where you can sit and watch the boats on the Grand canal. During the day it is very busy, but at night it is very quite. The water was surprisingly clean and has beautiful aquamarine color. There was no bad smell, probably due to not so hot weather. The apartment is clean and comfortable. It is more like a hotel room, but you can use the space outside it which makes it feel better than a hotel room. The communications with the management was effective and easy. I would like to say the special thanks to Dioni, who helped me a lot with ordering a taxi for our flight back to the US at 5 am on Sunday. This was not trivial for us with very limited Italian. Dioni made a couple of calls until he successfully placed the order. Dioni, thank you very much

The only thing I can complain about is the internet. We were not able to use it. It shows than you are connected but the moment you try to get to any site it says that there is no internet connection. I think it is problem with Venice, because I had a smart phone with the Italian sim card with the 10 GB, and it was working in Florence and Genoa, but worked only partially in Venice. Like you can read your emails, but can't send a reply.

In general, we enjoyed our stay at the apartment very much and would recommend it.

Wonderfully unforgettable!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in the honeymoon suite during our first ever visit to Venice and first stop in Italy, and to say it was just wonderful would be an understatement. The location of the apartment was incredible, and really gave us a taste of Venetian living! Our favourite part was sitting out on the dock and watching the boats and gondolas go by with the ancient backdrop made up of the beautiful Venetian architecture. You could even see the Rialto bridge from the dock. We also loved the location for it's proximity to Venice's famous sites and also to the less touristy areas where the locals live. Plenty of great restaurants, cafes and shops close by including a wine shop, pharmacy and grocer with cheese and meats. Marie-Helene was so amazingly helpful with getting us set up prior to our arrival and made us feel very welcome during our stay. We found that the common area is shared with the tenants above and only had the bedroom completely to ourselves, however that wouldn't stop us from staying here again, as we still felt like we had privacy. Thank you for this unforgettable experience!!
