Great location for privacy

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was just what we were looking for. Not right near the crazy touristy are but close enough with a short walk and close to the water taxi. Huge bonus was that there is a small grocery store just outside your door with bottles of wine for $1.99! Definately would stay again if we are lucky enough to go back

Good Apartment, Poor Management

  • 3 of 5

The apartment is nice, conveniently located and reasonably furnished. It comes with washing machine - very nice when traveling. It did have a few quirks - - - we didn’t hot H2O in one of two bathrooms for last 2 days. Our biggest issue was lack of information /contact with local property manager. The owner appears to be in UK and relies on “local” manager. We never met manager or his assistant - they had originally promised to meet us at ferry on arrival. After some frustrated phone calls on arrival at ferry site, we were eventually met by young mom with her daughter and walked thru neighborhood to unit. Information on unit was cursory - - - particularly around the electrical systems.

Owner's Response: Hi Mark, Thank you for leaving your opinion,I am so sorry that you had these issues and I’d like to reply to some points: -we are the owners of the flat but we are not based in Venice ,we rely on a person which we immediately put in contact with the guests at the moment of the confirmation in order to discouss the arrival’s procedure,at the same time we forward immediately the guest’s contact to our person.However we have had some issues in reaching you prior arrival,never got any reponse from your part ,until the moment you got off the ferry and we had to arrange an improvised Check-in,as Simone was too far to come in reasonable time cause this lack of communication.We are far but always in contact and reachable from our guests during their stay and we are normally very fast is solving the problems that arise,but I knew about the lack of hot water from your review.I just wanted to let you know that we are always present and give all ourselves to our job even if we are not there

Charming apt in quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is located in a quiet neighborhood about a 10-minute walk from the Arsenale water bus station. it is in an old building with lots of character--which I loved. There are two bedrooms & in each bedroom there is a loft with additional pull-out bed. Each bedroom has its own bathroom. Both have showers with hot water but one of the showers does not have a curtain because it's meant to be more of a bathtub. It wasn't a problem. Our host, Simone , met us at the dock and walked us to the apartment and answered all questions. He was very fun and friendly. This was in an excellent location & we felt like we got the real Venetian experience. There is a little restaurant in front of the apartment building and just a few steps away there's a grocery store. Very convenient. The apartment came with breakfast toast and jelly, which was tasty.
