Lovely apartment in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Although we had been to Venice before, this was the first time we had stayed on Guidecca, and it proved the perfect location for us: spectacular views, only a few minutes by vaporetto from San Marco, yet away from the crowds.

Carla couldn't have been more helpful as a host: keeping in touch by email, providing advice about getting to the apartment, and ensuring that we were met on arrival. The apartment itself was pleasant and comfortable, just as described - though no verbal description can do justice to the wonderful view of Venice that greets you as you walk out of the front door!

Guidecca was an enjoyable place to wander, with a variety of shops and places to eat (there is a useful information folder in the apartment). The boats from Zitelle go regularly throughout the day & night, so there is ample opportunity to explore different parts of the city or islands in the lagoon.

All in all, we couldn’t have wished for a better place to stay in Venice, and we would love to return to “Casa Grace” another year.

Venise: the lovely island of Giudecca

  • 4 of 5

I will never forget my 45th birthday at Casa Grace. My husband and I had a wonderful stay in Clara’s apartment and warmly recommend her place. The location is ideal just on the lovely island of Giudecca, with an astonishing view on Piazza San Marco Square and Santa Maria della Salute. To go there, it is an 8 minutes ride with the Vaporetto – always on time, regular and sailing at night, with the stop “Zitelle” just at your doorstep, together with a lovely little café. You may also chose to sail the other way to stroll along the Zitelle and explore the charms of the Dorsoduro, or, if like us in Venice during the Biennale, go straight to Arsenale or Giardini – you may also stop on your way on the island of San Giorgio Magiore to see the beautiful Church. Or, or… We could go on and on as the possibilities are endless from this great location. And at the end of the day, you are happy to go back to your cosy place away from the crowd where very quickly, we felt at home. The building is beautiful. The apartment very comfortable and spacious with all the comfort needed. Carla was a great host, responding to queries and mails and guiding us all the way from Brussels. We were there without our children and it was perfect for a romantic holiday but it would also be a great place with children – ours little girls clearly want to go to Casa Grace after all we told them!

Wonderful Studio in a local setting!

  • 5 of 5

This is one of a kind place in a wonderful location. Being a couple of minutes walk from the Zitelle vaporetto stop, this place is the tranquil setting of the little island of Guidecca. Away from the hustle and crowds of the main Venice that tourists know. The studio overlooks the span of water just across the way is San Marco! There is a grocery store, post office and take away pizza place just the way from the apt. It is nice to get away from the crowds of tourists that populate and congest the main part of the island and just relax in your very own oasis. You are only a couple of stops on the no. 2 Vaporetto to San Marco plaza. I only stayed for 3 nights, but I will definately know where to stay again! The owner was very communicative with me prior and during my visit. The information that was in the binder was extremely helpful. There are a couple of neighborhood cats that have been well fed and are very friendly. Thank you, Carla, for everything!!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Sometimes you find a place so great that your scared to review. Despite my concerns that the price might increase or might be booked in the future this apartment deserves my praise. It was EXACTLY what we were looking for. It's off the beaten tourist path as it's off the main "island" however it is very easy to hop on a boat bus just a few meters from the apartment and be across quickly. There are plenty of well priced and delicious restaurants near by as well. The host kept up with communication extremely well and was waiting for us upon arrival. Apartment is clean, the view is amazing, the garden delightful, and was exactly what I was looking for. I will certainly book without hesitation in the future.

Thanks for everything!
