Very quiet and central but there were quite a few problems
The benefits of the flat are that it is central but extremely quiet which was lovely. But overall we did have some problems. The flat was advertised as having a washing machine which is incorrect - when queried we were told there was one available but only for long stay tenants. If we had realised this we would have chosen another flat. We were also required to pay for gas use, which I have never come across before and we were provided with no evidence to show that the charge per unit was reasonable or reflected the true cost.
When we arrived at the agreed time the flat was freezing as I think it had been empty for the previous week. It would have been considerate of the owner to have arranged for the heating to have been turned on a few hours before we arrived. Finally, although the flat was well equipped and we had no complaints, the notes we were sent in advance were fairly off-putting. A huge list of things not allowed or where previous tenants had done damage - phrases like "you are expected to behave like civilised people" left us with the impression that tenants were seen as problems rather than guests.
An Amazing Trip and Accommodation
My husband, daughter and I spent nine nights in Venice at Isabella's wonderful apartment. The location was absolutely perfect and we were very cozy and warm which was a good thing because it was pretty cold outside for us Southern Californians! We had several Acqua Alta moments during our stay and Isabella had boots in the cupboard for us to use. Everything from the directions provided for our arrival (we arrived very late) to all the nice touches in the apartment made our stay perfect. Thank you Isabella for everything (and thanks for answering all my emails so promptly). We will be back!
Live Like A Venetian
Our stay at the Fairy House exceeded our expectations and the 4 of us had a wonderful stay. The apartment is large, decorated in an authentic Venetian style, and provides all the supplies and amenities we needed and more. The location was superb-right on a small canal with boats and bridges, and we threw open the windows one day (it’s winter) to view the canal. We were situated near a large square with shops and restaurants, but tucked away so the foot traffic and Canevale partiers never disturbed us. A grocery store was maybe a 5 minutes walk past pastry shops etc.
Our host Isabella communicated with us well in advance of our stay and using GPS we had no trouble finding the place. She was very clear in her directions, except if you stay here, you’ll need to know the key to the courtyard where you put out the trash is located in a white cabinet/closet to the right of the door and to the left of the stairs. She was flexible and let us check out late on our last day because we had a late flight and nobody was checking in on the same day.
Carnevale was a magical time to be in Venice and staying at the Fairy House made us wish we were staying longer.
Good Apartment for a Month Stay
This is an apartment for anyone looking for a place with character. The location is very convenient to grocery stores, cafes and tourist sites. The train and bus station are an easy 15-20 minute walk. I stayed for a month and felt right at home. The kitchen is well equipped, and I was able to cook meals easily after shopping at nearby markets. The bathroom is a little dated, but completely functional and adequate. The furniture in the apartment is charming and comfortable. Isabella was responsive to questions and provided helpful suggestions on where to shop and eat. When I learned that 2 of my relatives wanted to visit me for a week, she was very accommodating with extra towels and sheets. I would recommend this apartment to friends. The pizzeria, Birraria La Corte located across Campo San Polo, is open later than the other restaurants and has good pizza.
Charming apartment - great location
I stayed here with my family in July, and we really wished we had had more time! The apartment is in a great location - it's central, and very easy walking distance to all the things you want to see, but it's also in a quiet, tranquil corner. Isabella could not have been more helpful and accommodating - although she couldn't meet us, she did everything possible to make our stay easy and pleasant. The apartment is well equipped, and nicely decorated. When we come back to Venice we would definitely hope to stay here again.
thank you very much for the nice comment you made on the Fairy Little House in Venice. Cetainly it will help me to find more guests while rewards me for all the efforts made in making the house charming and cosy.
Looking forward to hosting you again for a longer period during which you will be able to live Venice and not just to catch a glimpse of it.
I booked to stay in the Fairy House for a trip to Venice for my partner's birthday. It was a great find. I initially searched hotels and found them to be extremely expensive if you wanted something "Venetian" and of a high standard. This apartment was great value when comparing to hotel prices of the same standard.
The apartment is very quirky, and had a real Venetian home feel to it. The location couldn't have been better. Very central but equally very peaceful as it is tucked away off a square and at the end of a canal route.
I found the information that Isabella provided before the trip very helpful and the history of the building gave us more of a sense that we were staying in a building with a story behind it. We didn't stay in much to eat as we were only there for three nights but if you wanted to cook the kitchen is well set up to do so. The place was clean and I would recommend staying here. I would certainly like to return.
Thank you very much for the kind comment whch rewards all my efforts to provide a pleasant place and stay. I too hope to see you soon again in magic Venice
