Castello Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

The apartment is very nice and was just renovated in 2009. It is located in the Castello area near the Biennale and the Pietà church, and is only a 10 minutes walk from St. Mark's Square. It is up a short flight of stairs and overlooks two calles (little Venetian streets).

A work of art—by a great artist from Atlanta, Deanna Sirlin, who showed work at the Biennale—has been transferred to the wood floor in one room of the apartment, using a special technique.

Some paintings from customers and friends are on the walls as Patrick Smith from San Francisco.

The kitchen is provided with everything, and if you need something special for your cooking we will offer advice and show you where to get ingredients...we love cooking!!

About The Owner

We are Venetian and we love travelling around the world when we can. We have 2 children and a cocker spaniel dog. We love to meet people who most of the time become friends.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2009

Why The Owner chose Venice

We decided to rent this property because most of our customers ask about that: they want to stay near us! We live nearby.

What makes this apartment unique

Our guests will have the 10% discount for cash payment and of course a bottle of Prosecco in the fridge upon arrival as welcoming!

10% discount at Osteria Oliva Nera located nearby.

My husband and I along with our son and daughter in law got to stay here and need I say, we'd go back in a heart beat!! It was fabulously decorated, spotlessly clean and very comfortable (the pictures hardly did it any justice). It couldn't have been more centrally located. Taking Isabellas advise, we mostly wondered aimlessly throughout the city. Often the kids returned with with tears of joy in their eyes having experienced pure Venetian splendor, never mind they devoured every morsel of food and culture they could possibly take in. Isabella is the ambassador for Venice. She was spot on with ever bit of information and advise she generously shared with us and really made our stay. She even has several restaurants very close to the apartment and by far the best we experienced in Venice. From our initial planning to our sad good byes, Isabella went far beyond anything we could have expected or hoped for. We so appreciate you Isabella, Jessica and Fillipo, our hearts are overflowing with love. Hope to see you again soon. Mahalo & Aloha!!! Paul, LJo, Justin and Julia

My wife, her cousin and I stayed there for seven nights! EVERYTHING that everyone has posted is 100 percent on target!!! The apartment is everything displayed in the pictures AND MORE!!! Just like everyone else, Isabella stocked the kitchen with items that were much appreciated and the Prosecco was such a classy touch! She contacted a water taxi for our arrival and even met us at the drop off bridge when we arrived. She arranged a water taxi for our departure upon request as well. I cannot speak enough of her incredible taste, hospitality and professionalism! Now, the restaurant downstairs (Oliva Nera)! OMG!!! Fantastic! Hands down, one of the best dinners we had while in Venice if not the BEST! The wine she suggested was phenomenal! The squid ink pasta was incredible! The lasagna was out of this word and the TIRAMISU!!! JUST WOW!!! Sorry for all the caps but when I say that words cannot express how great our dinner AND our stay was, I wholeheartedly mean that! If ever in Venice again, we will not hesitate to pick this place again! PS. On a side note, I would like to thank whomever left an ankle wrap with the freezer packs! My wife had sprained her ankle two days prior to our trip and it really came in handy!!!

Great apartment and a wonderful host!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Fantastic apartment in Venice, Close to San Marco Square

  • 5 of 5

My elderly mother, sister and sister-in-law stayed at this lovely apartment for two nights in September, 2013 and I can't recommend it highly enough. With two spacious bedrooms, two 3-piece bathrooms and a fully stocked kitchen, it was the perfect retreat for us after busy days of exploring Venice. The apartment was spotless and located a short walk from all the main attractions that Venice has to offer.

Best of all, our hosts Isabella and Dino were fantastic. Isabella was a joy to deal with and she was incredibly helpful, from arranging transportation to helping us with our luggage when we arrived and when we departed. As it happens, they own a restaurant very close to the apartment and the meal we had there was the best we experienced in Italy (try the lasagna!).

A wonderful stay!

Gracious Hosts, Excellent Apartment, Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was more than we could ask for. Hosts (Isabella and Dino) were most helpful with arranging for water taxi to deliver us from the Santa Lucia train station to the apartment, making our arrival into Venice easy and stress free. All details were looked after, including a child size robe for our 10 year old daughter, sparkling wine in the fridge and a generous supply of coffee for our stay. Apartment was close to San Marco square and many popular sites in Venice. Treat yourself to a wonderful meal at Oliva Nera (Dino and Isabella's restaurant) just around the corner from the apartment. Best tiramisu in all the land! We can't say enough about our stay, except that should the opportunity present itself, we would definitely stay there again. Thanks Dino and Isabella for making our vacation!

A Hidden Treasure!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was superb! Hidden in a small **quiet** side street within easy walking distance to St. Marco, it was very easy to find with the map the apartment owners provided prior to arriving. What was our favorite part? The spectacularly well-stocked kitchen? Large refrigerator? Table for six? Three flat screen TVs? Two bathrooms? Wifi? We loved it all! Perhaps the best feature was the heavy window shutters you could close at night. Our kids have never slept so well and so late the next morning! The restaurant downstairs, operated by the property owners, is by far the best food we had in Venice. Wait until the owner "draws" the dessert menu for you! You are in for a treat. Enjoy.
