Reviews of this property
apartment very well located near the St Marc and Rialto. equipment but rather summary and especially large moisture problems especially in the master bedroom generating a very unpleasant odor.
appartement très bien situé près de la place St marc et du Rialto. mais équipement plutôt sommaire et surtout gros problèmes d'humidité notamment dans la chambre principale générant une odeur très désagréable.
Die Wohnung war sauber und ist zentral gelegen. Die Einrichtung ist zweckmässig ausser die Küche. Ich als Hobbykoch kannte mich hier nicht einmal ein bisschen ausleben. Was mich sehr irritierte, dass Wimdu auf Ihrem Portal den Ort ihre Büros markieren, und nicht den Ort der Wohnung. Nichts desto trotz genossen wir unser Ferien und kehrten erholt zurück.

The apartment exceeded our expectation and it was perfect for my husband's 70th birthday family celebration. It was very spacious and well equipped for 7 people. The views were incredible - it must have the best view in Venice and we enjoyed every minute of our stay.The location is perfect too, very central and yet private. Our host Barbara and her colleague Valentina were extremely helpful and nice. We shall definitely return.
What a fantastic apartment! The position overlooking the Grand Canal, with balconies looking out opposite the Rialto Market is simply sublime to watch Venice go about its business. 5 mins walk to the water taxi stops of Ca D'or or Rialto. It is also a huge apartment in size. Easily sleeps 7 comfortably (and could be 8 if the single room had a double bed in it). Fully equipped,everything we needed, also has good Wi-Fi. Booking and service by Barbara and Valentina were superb - great information prior to arrival, met on arrival and talked through everything, restaurant recommendations, location etc. As others have mentioned there is some noise from the bar below and the dock itself as its used to load/unload, but Venice is a city and this is to be expected, so bring some earplugs if you are a light sleeper and you will be fine - it didn't bother us. Again, superb location, wonderful apartment, great service - we will be back!
Lovely view and perfect position - however, very noisy, next to a bar which at the weekend played music till 3am and on other nights cleared bottles and rubbish at 5am!
Organisation on arrival was very poor - arrangements made with Barbara had not been passed on to local staff and caused unnecessary hassle.
On departure the staff member checking the apartment was very abrupt and rude, wanting to fine us for leaving bagged rubbish, stating that instructions were clear in our written guide - which was actually in Italian!
The apartment was in an excellent position, easy to walk to all districts in Venice, being situated very close to the Accademia Bridge over the Grand Canal. It was also a few doors down from an excellent restaurant; expensive but the quality of food was superb and service friendly and efficient. We enjoyed the view from the living room balcony which looked out onto a quiet canal and gave us a flavour of working Venice as opposed to Tourism. We were a bit concerned at the state of the floor in the main room which was wooden and some of the squares were collapsing which meant being very conscious of them when walking around. We were also disappointed in the lack of cooking facilities; there was only a hob with two hot plates, no grill or oven which was a pity for us as we eat a lot of fish and were looking forward to buying some from the famous fish market in Venice. However the representatives were friendly and helpful and sorted out water taxis for our return to the airport. We did enjoy our stay in Venice and couldn't have asked for a better location.

Lovely apartment. Well taken care of. Spacious rooms. Good service from Barbara and her colleagues. The location is pretty central.
Heerlijk appartement. Goed verzorgd. Ruime kamers. Goede service van Barbara en haar collega. De ligging is mooi centraal.
A very quiet location, yet centrally located apartment. The kitchen was very well equipped, only a coffee machine was missing. The two bathrooms were big enough, as were the rooms. The TV receives even ARD and ZDF. We like to stop us in the apartment and everything worked great. The owners were very nice and even gave us picked up and brought us to the apartment. The beds were comfortable and there was a lack of towels we did not (3 pieces). All in all you can really only recommend this apartment!
Eine sehr ruhig gelegene, aber dennoch zentral gelegene Wohnung. Die Küche war sehr gut ausgestattet, nur eine Kaffeemaschine fehlte. Die zwei Bäder waren ausreichend groß, genauso wie die Zimmer. Der Fernseher empfängt sogar ARD und ZDF. Wir haben uns gerne in der Wohnung aufgehalten und alles hat super funktioniert. Die Vermieter waren sehr nett und haben uns sogar abgeholt und uns zur Wohnung gebracht. Die Betten waren bequem und an Handtüchern mangelte es uns auch nicht (3 Stück). Alles in allem kann man diese Wohnung wirklich nur weiterempfehlen!
A beautifully situated house on the Grand Canal! However, only
3 right double rooms available !!. Other facilities very good. The apartment is only suitable for 3 couples. Very nice living area and a fully
equipped kitchen. The support provided by Daniela was very friendly.
Central a little hard to find location, but highly recommended.
Eine wunderschön gelegene Wohnung am Canale Grande ! Allerdings sind nur
3 richtige Doppelzimmer vorhanden !!. Sonstige Ausstattung sehr gut . Die Wohnung ist nur für 3 Paare geeignet. Sehr schöner Wohnbereich und eine voll
ausgestattete Küche. Die Betreuung durch Daniela war sehr freundlich.
Zentrale etwas schwierig zu findende Lage, aber sehr empfehlenswert.
