Beautiful place in the heart of Venice

  • 5 of 5

With only being 5 min walk away from Rialto Bridge and San Marco Square, it does not get any better. Owners were extremely friendly and relaxed. Would highly recommend the place and stay there again.

Thank you

The Perfect Spot in Venice

  • 5 of 5

You absolutely could not find a better place in Venice. Convenient to everywhere, all the character you can dream of, and a great, attentive, flexible owner; Chimney Sweep Well has it all. I would be amazed if there is a more perfect place for a family to stay on Venice.

Comfortable and convenient stay

  • 5 of 5

This home was everything that we could ask for. The bedrooms and bathrooms were spacious and comfortable. And, the washer and dryer were just outside one of the bedrooms.

A large window by the dining room table could be opened up, and the gondoliers would pass right outside! We spent time just waiving to the riders. You couldn't ask for a more convenient location. 5 minutes one way took us to the Rialto Bridge area. 5 minutes in the opposite direction took us to piazza San Marco. Our host, Kimberly Kelley was very helpful in helping us in all aspects of our stay. I would highly recommend staying at this charming home.

Perfect Venice location and remodeled apartment!

  • 5 of 5

It doesn't get better than this! We loved staying here because of the absolutely awesome central location. 2 minute walk to the Rialto Bridge and a 2 minute walk to St. Mark's square.

The best part? The living room window opens onto a canal and you can watch and wave to the gondoliers going by. You can hear some of them singing! This was just awesome. It really made our Venice experience special.

This unit has been recently remodeled, and its in immaculate brand new condition. We felt extremely comfortable and enjoyed our stay here immensely.

It's on the first floor, which is super convenient. No stairs to fuss with. The building has a secure entry door and lobby. Surprisingly, the entrance to the building is off on a quiet square away from the hustle and bustle. Walk just a block and you are in the middle of great cafes, shops, and everything else you might like.

We loved Venice, and this centrally located fully remodeled place really made our stay excellent. Will come again!

Awesome location!

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect base to visit Venice as it is located between San Marco piazza and the Rialto bridge. Perfect for two couples as it has two bathrooms attached to each bedroom with a lovely terasse off of one of the bedrooms. Best part was the window that opens onto the canal. We had gondolas passing by every day, what a great way to immerse ourselves in Venetian lifestyle!
