Why Rita chose Venice

Because now we live in Usa but we love to come back to our loved Venice!

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is placed exactly at the center of Venice, in the heart of the most typical part of the city . The square of San Polo (called Campo) is the largest of Venice, full of magnificent palaces and very close to the famous Rialto bridge.


Excellent! 4.7/5 -

The location was convenient to all areas of Venice. Took us about 20 minutes to walk to St. Marks square and less then ten to the to the Rialto Bridge. A large supermarket was five minutes walk away. "Popsicle gelato" was also nearby. Also a farmacy right in the square, about a minute to San Polo, when my son developed a cough.

The apartment looks exactly like the pictures, but the view online doesn't do it justice. It is gorgeous in person. For the view alone I recommend it, but the large size and amenities complete the package.

I was traveling with twin toddlers so we utilized the kitchen for breakfast and cooked one dinner. We even used the cleaning supplies. Everything we needed to cook and clean was there. The only thing lacking was wine glasses.

The front toilet had a weird flush,but they put a sign on it telling you how to flush it to avoid issues with it. Having two bathrooms was wonderful and hard to find in small apartments in Europe. Also having a tub with kids was wonderful. A washer with English instructions and a rack to dry clothes made our vacation easier as we left for a cruise from the apartment with all clean clothes .

They also had a small bag of toys which my kids found and utilized once we had packed all their stuff to leave. It gave us relief while packing and was much appreciated.

The service was wonderful, they checked in on us, and they communicated with me timely before hand. The representative gave us tips for places to eat and gelato. They also provided a very detailed map.

Overall a wonderful place to stay and if in Venice I will go back to this apartment.

Wonderful Venice Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Venice many times. This excellent apartment makes us want to go back very soon!

Rita was very easy to work with from our first inquiry through our arrival. Elena met us when we arrived and gave us a thorough introduction to the apartment and the neighborhood.

We are a couple, and do minimal cooking. The apartment was very comfortable. The kitchen is well-equipped for those who do cook. Everything was clean and ready for the rental.

The location is superb. Two vaporetto stops are only a couple of minutes away. Most of our favorite places in Venice, sites, restaurants, etc. were all easily reached from the campiello the apartment is on by foot or vaporetto. There is a convenient grocery, and we found a couple of good bars for our morning coffee and late afternoon aperitivi depending on which route we were taking.

We're looking forward to staying here again. Highly recommended.

avoid if you are a light sleeper

  • 2 of 5

When I read the previous comments from other people who rented this apartment, I can hardly believe that we stayed in the same place...

Yes, the apartment is big and have a nice view on the canal.

Yes, even though some of the furniture is a bit old and dated, it is well furnished and comfortable.

Yes, the building is really quiet (we actually never met any neighbours during our stay).

HOWEVER, at night, the lovely view of the canal turns into a nightmare, when you hear the motor boats passing right in front of your window the whole night! I was able to sleep maybe from 2 a.m until 6 a.m every night...after three nights sleepless, I resolved to sleep in a quiet hotel nearby...

so, if you are a heavy sleeper, no problem, this is a good price value, otherwise...simply avoid to go there.

Sadly, we only where in Venice for three nights. I think within in a minute of arriving at this very large, well appointed and VERY quiet apartment, we regretted we were not staying for longer. Chiara met us quickly at the appointed spot. She was extremely helpful in getting us settled with the essentials of the grocery store, suggesting excellent local restaurants, pointing us towards the sights on our must do list, etc. She took note of my camera equipment and suggested great spots for photos and even suggested an exhibit currently showing by a local artist. Something not in the tour books and it was excellent. There is a great view out of the windows of a canal that does lead to the grand canal. In the morning you do hear the local delivery boats starting around 8am. However, from about 8pm to 8 am- there is very little outside noise, a welcome break from the city noise of Rome. We would definitely stay here again, close to everything, yet quiet and charming at the same time.

Wonderful stay in a wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in this beautiful apartment & loved it. Well equipped, clean, spacious, relaxing & homely - it was perfect to come "home" to after a day of sight seeing. 2 supermarkets close by, a few minutes from the Vaporetto stop & a lovely 10 min walk to the Rialto bridge. Loved the gondolas going past our windows & the view of the Grand Canal. A big thank you to Matteo for waiting for us & showing the apartment & pointing out restaurants. The gelato in the nearby square was the best we've ever had! Would definitely recommend staying here. :-)

dreamy apartment

  • 5 of 5

This was one of our favorite apartments we stayed in during our month-long adventure in Italy. The apartment was beautiful and quiet and we loved the french doors and balcony over the canal. My husband, 7-year old son and I walked all over Venice for five days and this was a wonderful home base from which to explore a truly magical city. Thanks to RIta for the hospitality and her niece for welcoming us and for recommendations for a great cantina and nearby grocery store. We loved Venice and this apartment and would return in a heartbeat.
