Overview

About the property

Charming flat with a balcony facing a romantic typical Venetian canal

We rent our flat in Venice for short weekly stays all year round (preferably weekly stays but we can accept a minimum stay of three days). The flat is perfect for two and suitable for a family with a child. “Nati’s House” offers the comfort and the charm that could emphasize the value of your stay in this spectacular city of the world. Very well lighted, it faces with a balcony a marvellous typical Venetian canal, in a part of Venice, which still belongs to Venetians. We think this is a great value for the wise tourist. The flat is completely furnished, some pieces of furniture are antique and it is located at the first floor: safe when the sea floods the streets and far from humidity of the ground floors. “Nati’s House” is waiting you just four minutes by the Alilaguna water bus stop (shuttle service from/to the airport). For more photos and further details about us, the flat and the simple automatic way to book your stay, please visit our website. Ask us the URL if you can't see it in this page.

Without otherwise agreed, keys are delivered directly to your contractual address by post. So at your arrival, you will already have the keys and detailed directions.

About Paolo

Owner: Paolo Devescovi, owner since 2003, architect free lance and art teacher in public school.

In early 2002 the stock exchange crisis caused by the disaster of the twin towers, spread over the world. In that occasion I saw my savings eroded considerably. So I decided to buy a little flat in Venice (Nati's House). I am an architect and surely I can take care of buildings better than care of money. Since then, the rental activity, held through the web, became an important activity of mine. As freelance architect I soon acquired clients who expressly wanted to restore or to refurbish their houses for doing the same rental activity I was managing for my new Venetian place. The whole has been dressed by my enthusiastic approach to the possibilities offered by the Internet. I aggregated around my private website a small community of guests. In some cases, true friendships started for long lasting rapports.

Since then, the rental activity, held through the web, became an important activity of mine. As freelance architect I soon acquired clients who wanted to restore or to refurbish their houses for doing the same rental activity I was managing for my own properties. The whole has been dressed by my enthusiastic approach to the possibilities offered by the Internet. I aggregated around my private website a small community of guests. In some cases, true friendships started for long lasting rapports.

Some years ago, some companies bought the whole trust of the online advertisements, begining to target the fast online-booking-style through the search engines rather than to foster the quality of growing sincere relationships as I was used to offer through my website and my personal brand Archirent (do a search on line for more). Anyway I go to great lengths to maintain the original spirit and fight against standardization of great commercial websites. Right now I can count to the cooperation of my valid colleague and architect Carlotta Lo Verde.

Paolo purchased this apartment in 2003

What makes this apartment unique

On one thing I staid strong:

I maintained the same prices in all my advertisements.

You will see that the prices in this website are lower than those reported in my official private website (do a search with Archirent).

This reduction takes into account the fact you have to pay an 8.7% average rate as Service Fee to book through this website (actually the total will grow as you proceed with the checkout procedure!). The price, based on short stays, you are going to pay using this website, is approximately the same you can find in my private website or in other websites advertising my property.

Differences may persist, but, positive or negative they are really inconsistent (a few euros due to the VAT policies, variability of currency rates and other factors). If you book through this website you will get the benefit of an insurance and my advertisement will rank into a higher position toward the top of the ‘anonymous competitors list’ of this website.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My wife and I loved our week in Nati's House in Venice and wished we could have stayed longer. The house is well located, yet far from the tourist track. It is comfortable and the host is very conscientious in providing everything that is needed, including Venice guidebooks in English, as well as detailed instructions covering every eventuality. The apartment was clean, well maintained and fit the description provided very accurately. I would definitely recomment it.

Charming fully equipped small apartment for two.

  • 5 of 5

I loved Nanti"s House. Perfectly located for visiting St Marks Square ( about a half hour stroll) very close to a Vaporetto/airport stop, Station and The Jewish Ghetto. Situated over a small canal it offers a quiet retreat especially after a hot exhausting day of walking round all the sights. I would thoroughly recommend this to any couple looking to explore Venice who are unable to afford the high hotel prices and yet don't want to compromise on comfort or location. Enjoyed discovering the plentiful small traditional restaurants off the tourist trail that were just a short stroll away. I plan on booking Nati's house again that's for sure.

Great Location. Ideal for couples wanting a quieter area away from the bustle.

  • 5 of 5

The property has two rooms plus a bathroom, so plenty of space for the two of us. A nice little balcony, enough room for two chairs, to watch the world go by with a glass of wine.

The kitchen has all that you need to keep you fed and watered.

There is plenty of light coming through all the rooms.

The apartment is situated about a 10 min walk from the busier streets of Venice in a very nice area called Canareggio. There are some really friendly

bars and restaurants within a short walk of the property.

We would recommend this apartment to anyone and would definitely stay there again whenever in Venice (we are already looking into returning next year).

The owner Paolo is very easy to communicate with and made the planning of our stay as simple as possible. A very helpful host.

Perfect for our needs

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed out stay at Nati's house. It's a small but clean and quiet apartment, right off the canal, which was perfect for the two of us. Communication with the host was perfect, we received our keys before we arrived and his directions to get there were detailed and meticulous (which was great for us since our flight arrived so late). The only negative was that the wifi was spotty and the only reason I cared about it was because I had to check on my work back home - otherwise, I wouldn't have cared at all.

A very good experience over all and highly recommended!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the reviews and for noticing problems to the wifi. I have checked the efficiency of the wifi and it seems to work regularly with a good signal. I am not an expert and, to tell the true, my checking activity was done on remote anyway, I suppose that the efficiency depends also by the type of device that connects to the net. I will keep monitored the situation for my next guests and I suggest a basic measure to do in such cases: re-initialization of the wifi device, just unplug and then plug again electricity. I saw also in other cases 90% it works!

Comfortable apartment in quiet part of Venice

  • 4 of 5

Paolo was very efficient and helpful throughout the process. The apartment is comfortable and very arty - just perfect for a stay in Venice. I loved the little balcony and watching people going about (although not at all busy as quiet part of Venice). Lovely to be able to walk to the old Jewish Ghetto and local bars and restaurants. You have everything you need unless you want to do cordon bleu cooking - but who would in Venice with all those restaurants on your doorstep?

The Only Way to Visit Venice

  • 5 of 5

Nati's House was a perfect place for us to stay during our recent return to Venice. Located in the Cannaregio, it was neat, clean and well-equipped. The owner was most helpful and gracious, a real pleasure to work with. The cost was very reasonable. The unit is small but more than adequate, allowing us to cook some of our meals in, taking full advantage of a few local small shops selling fresh hand-made gnocchi and tortellini. The Cannaregio is a working-class residential neighborhood that rarely sees a tourist. As a result, it is peaceful, quiet and safe. Nati's House is located on one of the small canals called "rios" with a wide siewalk (fondamento) in front. Directly across the rio is the fascinating Orsoni Color Library, a maker of glass mosaic tiles; the tour (only on Wednesday) is a must. To make access to the rest of Venice easy, the Guglie vaporatto stop is only a five-minute walk away and the Santa Lucia train station another 10 minutes. The only negative was a less-than-comfortable bed but the owner assures me that a new bed is on the way. I would recommend Nati's House without reservation and we're looking forward to when we can return to Venice and stay there again.

Relax in your own Venetian apartment

  • 4 of 5

Comfortable, clean and well equipped for a short or extended stay in a quiet part of Venice where people still live. Just one bridge and a very short walk bring you to the vaporetto stop which takes you right around Venice, out to the lido or Murano and to and from the airport. A walk of less than 10mins brings you to a water bus stop on the Grand Canal. You can buy everything you need for self catering nearby including fresh fish, vegetables and fruit and groceries. Lots of places to eat out too. Highly recommended.

Car: not necessary

Located in the Cannaregio District, where the popular culture of Venice is still alive and where restaurants and “osterias” are still for Venetians (and for the few lucky tourists who go off the beaten track for a minute or two) .4-8 minutes walk from the boat service, 11-13 from railway station and 10 from Rialto, maybe less with “gondola” shuttle. If you plan to arrive to the San Marco Airport, just take the Alilaguna shuttle boat Airport-Venice, stop at Guglie water bus stop in Venice and then you have to walk four minutes and just one bridge to cross!
