  • Pleasant apartment in quiet Sant'Elena

    "Your Italian grandmother's vacation place in Venice. Great for kids. The small private garden is completely secure, so they can go outside and run around a bit unsupervised. There is a nice playground in the lovely park in front of the building and quiet, shady streets for taking walks near home. DON'T FORGET YOUR INSECT REPELLENT! All that beautiful greenery appeals to bugs too, and there are no screens on the windows. The ground floor location makes getting a stroller in and out pretty easy. It's a 90 second walk through the park to the vaporetto stop, which is always convenient, but especially appreciated when you are dragging your bags. From the vaporetto stop you can travel all over the lagoon. Although we took a couple of trips to the small and crowded convenience stores that pass for "supermarkets" in Venice, we found we could get most of what we needed from the little Pane e Salami shop down the street and the produce stand around the corner. We recommend going over to Lido if you need the "supermarket." The one near the vaporetto stop on Lido is slightly less cramped than the one on Via Garibaldi. The apartment is accurately pictured on the VRBO website. I found the bed in the front bedroom to be very, very hard and had to put a comforter underneath me for padding, but my husband and son thought the beds were fine. The kitchen has more dishes and pots and pans than you could possibly want, a cheerfully eclectic assortment of varying vintage. It came with an apron. Yay! Be sure to ask your greeter how to use the stove and the washing machine. It took us a while to figure them out. We used the living room quite a bit; great have that extra space. It was chilly during our visit, so we only got to use the little garden for one lunch, but it was pleasant as long as you have your bug repellent on. The shower was a bit tricky to get used to. We got a lot of water on the floor before we figured out the trick of keeping the glass screen slightly inside the tub, not aligned along the top like it was a shower door. There was no waste basket in the bathroom, but we improvised with an empty cereal box for dental floss and cotton pads. You can sometimes hear people talking as they walk by on the street in front of the building, but the neighborhood is so quiet and secluded that this is rare, and it never happened late at night. All in all, a quiet and pleasant place to recover from the crowds thronging the popular tourist attractions."

  • A True Venetian Experience!

    "Tucked into one of those narrow passageways that look so inviting in Venice, this apartment offered us a chance to experience what Venice must be like for those lucky enough to live there. The apartment and the neighborhood were very quiet, yet a block in any direction we found cafes, open air market-boats, plazas and ferries. My husband was a 10-minute walk from this apartment to his meetings at the Accademia. Inside the apartment we found a well-equipped, comfortable, exceptionally clean space in 6 rooms along a long hallway. More than that, we found that the living room offered a surprisingly extensive academic library in a range of languages, record collection, as well as access to a delightful terrace. The second bedroom makes a perfect study, well-lit and airy. There are a few electrical quirks, as can normally be found in Europe. Bring adapters with you and learn how your smartphone can become a backup "hotspot". We found that the whole of Venice offers medium quality internet access; best not to rely on google maps once you arrive on the island. Print out a google map of the location ahead of time! Mrs Leoncini could not have been more professional, friendly, or accessible! She speaks Italian, French, English and ?? We will definitely return to this apartment when we return to the wonderful city of Venice."

  • A splended, thoroughly enjoyable experience!!!

    "Arrived with my wife and daughter in September for our 19th consecutive yearly visit to Venice. This, thanks to a beautifully equipped apartment and a great location was one of my most memorable stays. I look forward to a return next year and I am certain that my family is also anxious for at least one more stay. The ONLY disappointment, no available TV."

  • Great Location. Plenty of room for 4 adults.

    "I loved this apartment. Close enough to walk comfortably with luggage. Very close to the Vaporetto that takes you everywhere. We met Guilianno on a main bridge close to the apartment and he gave us plenty of useful information. We slept on real beds and cooked a couple of dinners in the apartment. Groceries were not expensive at all. Beth"
