Studio Apartment with the most gorgeous view on Venice lagoon
Casa Grace is full of light and it's located in one of the most elegant buildings on the Fondamenta facing San Marco's square. The building is newly refurbished but it was built in 1700, belonging to the noble family of Mocenigo.
It's a warm and comfortable self catering apartment of approx. 65 square meters., located on the ground floor.
It's composed by a large room, providing a queen size bed and 2 single beds. The crystal table will let you enjoy breakfast and your meals right in front of San Marco's square, in the most quiet area of Venice: the island of Giudecca. Art books and tourist guides will be at your disposal!
The kitchen is equipped to fulfill all your needs: pots&pans, microwave, 2 cooking rings, coffee maker and so on.
The bathroom provides a bath tub that can be also used as a shower.
Maximum comfort thank you to fan coils for heating and air conditioning.

The view does’t get any better!
This space is across the grand canal from Venice, but do not let that discourage you from booking. There is a boat that takes you to Venice that runs every 20 minutes. The photos that are used to advertise this space are actual photos taken from the beautiful huge windows that provide a waterfront view of Venice that is absolutely gorgeous! The island is super quite which is a nice reprieve when being in Venice all day. Everything was awesome!
Great stay.. definitely going to miss the view from Casa Grace!
The property was lovely! Very clean, lots of space and stunning views of San Marco! Carla left lots of helpful information on Venice for us, was quick to answer messages and sent someone to meet us from the vaporetto. Only a 5 minute ferry ride to San Marco (28euro for a 3 day pass if under 30) although these only ran until 8pm and after that it took between 20-30 minutes to get back depending on where you caught the ferry. This was the only slight downside to the property but overall a brilliant stay. Grazie Carla :)
A wonderful stay in Venice!
A comfortable apartment, with an incredible view, removed from the tourists of Venice. Easily accessible by water taxi, we'd definitely stay here again.
Lovely apartment in a perfect location
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
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!
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!!
Giudecca is a beautiful and peaceful island that faces the most gorgeous view in Venice: San Marco's square! Residential area, it's the best option for those who seek for an exclusive point of view on the most beautiful city in the world!
