The owner is not a considerate person.

  • 3 of 5

This apartment was absolutely wonderful. However, the wifi at the Venice airport would not connect so I could not access my information on the rental. This caused me the problem of not being able to contact the person with the key. I finally managed to find the phone number for the owner, but the kind stranger who called for me was shocked to learn that the owner didn't care one whit that I was sortof lost and was having trouble getting to the apartment and calling the contact. The owner literally said, "Well, that's her problem." I was able to find a restaurant that would allow me to charge my phone and access their wifi, so I called the "contact" for the apartment. She was very rude.

I would not stay in this apartment again.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your positive review of my apartment. However, do take exception to your comments about 'the owner' (me) not being considerate. When travelling abroad, things can and do go wrong. We always send full instructions and contact details well in advance of arrival and encourage guests to save our representatives' phone number in their phones before travelling. The fact that you arrived and had no means of making contact is a little worrying. We spent a great deal of time assisting you and the kind-hearted strangers you enlisted to dig you out of a situation which was essentially your fault. Enrica is a very good local representative and I apologise if she was rude. Be aware however that you pretty much stole her entire Sunday afternoon as she spent all of it helping you out. Thanks.

Second Stay

  • 4 of 5

This was our second stay in this rental and it was as nice as we remembered. It's quiet and convenient; there's a grocery store next door and several good small restaurants nearby. There is a packet of useful information for guests which includes restaurant recommendations. Since it is also used by the owners there are numerous small useful items available (spices in the cupboard for example). We were pleased to see that the small travel clock we had left behind on our previous stay was set out on a table for us and happily reclaimed it.

Wonderful! Great location! Peaceful and clean.

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying here and hopefully not our last. The apartment has everything we need and more. It is very well appointed and Enrica answers any and all questions thoroughly. We love its location on Giudecca. We can take the Vaporetto across to San Marco Square and explore Venice among the throng of other tourists and then return to our peaceful and uncrowded island home. Our favorite restaurant on Giudecca is Trattoria ai Cacciatore and one night we go to the rooftop bar at the Stucky Hilton Molina and enjoy the view. Also if you hop over to the Accadamia stop, we highly recommend Ristorante San Trovaso. (There is also a Taverna San Trovaso...2 different places, but also good, I hear.) Their fried vegetables and sea bass in foil with vegetables are fantastic and after dinner you must try a Sgroppino! It is an after dinner drink (dessert/digestive). Prosecco, vodka and lemon sorbet! So refreshing on a hot summer day in Venice.

We were there the end of July/beginning of August, 2017 and it was HOT in Venice. After a day of sightseeing, we always loved returning to your lovely apartment. We could refresh and recharge in the air conditioning and then head out for dinner. Thank you for sharing your home with us. We highly recommend this lovely apartment.

We absolutely loved our stay here! The apartment is big and beautiful, and located away from the crowds of tourists. The owners even reccommened several great nearby places to eat and drink. We would definitely stay here again.
