Contact with Guido was very good. We texted him on arrival at the airport and he was there to meet and greet us as we arrived 20 minutes later at the bus station. He showed us the way to the apt and welcomed us with a cold bottle of Prosecco and cake and gave us details of how to use the wifi. There was and abundance of useful books and maps. Guido was very pleasant and polite. He was also very knowledgeable about the history of Venice and takes a keen interest in Byzantine history.. He took us on a very informative 2 - 3 hour tour of the nearby neighbourhood and even waited patiently while my sister and I stopped at the supermarket to pick up a few essentials.

The ground floor apt was in a secure gated block. It was very pleasant and had everything we needed although we only had breakfast there and ate out for lunch and dinner. There is a very tiny patio for two to eat out if you wished but it was too hot so we chose not to. The apt was clean and the air conditioning worked very effectively. We were very pleased with the location. It is only a few minutes walk from the hustle and bustle of Piazzale Roma, Santa Lucia station and the Scalzi bridge and restaurants. gelaterias, shops etc yet it is quiet and peaceful. The waterbus takes you from the Scalzi bridge down the Grand Canal which is a fabulous experience though at peak times (late afternoon and late evening we found it was uncomfortably crowded). The best experience was getting up and going out in Venice at sunrise - the weather was pleasant the streets quiet with a few joggers and you can take wonderful photos from the Scalzi bridge. It's possible to take the early morning waterbus 6 - 6.30am with people going to work, from near Piazzale Roma round the island and come into St Mark's square from the south. Incredible views and just a few people wandering around. The square is amazing when its virtually empty - you can grab a seat outside the cafes which haven't opened yet and really drink in the beautiful architecture and atmosphere in the early morning sun. It's a totally different experience to the buzz in the square in the evening with the emsembles playing and lots of tourists milling around. Both to be enjoyed of course.
.
You can walk to St Mark's square from the apt if you wish. Our stay in Venice was lovely and it was great to know we could return to the peace and quiet of Guido's lovely clean and cool apt for rest. Thank you Guido and hope to book with you again when I return with my husband and sons.

“Perfect location, beautiful apartment!”

The apartment was just right for us - young couple with old parents, walking wasn't a problem to the vaparetto river taxi - the major one just outside the railway station.
It place was very clean, spotless! and modern. There's even coffee and basic hand soup, cleaning agents, towels, etc. there's everything you'll need, so you just pack yourself and clothes. The outside environment is very pleasant, the photos do not do much to reveal that.
The booking process is very smooth and Guido is very reliable, response is almost immediate day. Also when arrived, he responsed immediately so you can rest assured he meets up with you right on time.

The hairdryer needs to be changed though, it wasn't working well.

The apartment is lovely and well located near Sta Lucia station. Guido waited for us at the station and showed us the way to the apartment. There was a bottle of prosecco and a cake waiting for us. It wa great! After that he walked with us in Venice and told us a lot of interesting things about the local history.
Armonia apartment is new, beautiful and comfortable. It is close vaporeto stations, restaurants, super market and stores. Wifi was very good. It was a great pleasure to stay the.

“Great Stay with a welcoming host”

We stayed at this lovely apartment for 3 nights while in Venice. It was really convenient, spacious and comfortable. Guido meet us near the bus stop and walked with us to the apartment and even helped me with my luggage. In the apartment he had prepared a cake with a bottle of wine to welcome us. We were so impressed by his hospitality. He spent around an hour or more with us giving us an introduction to the apartment and also a short walk around the block to point out nice restaurants he recommended at the same time giving us a bit of history about Venice. He made us feel like we were visiting a family friend.
The apartment itself was clean and comfortable and had everything you needed for a holiday home. We loved having the washing machine especially when you've lived out of a suitcase for a few weeks. My husband was very impressed with the remote controlled sun roof/skylight in the bedroom which he loved playing with.
The area was also very safe, enclosed within a block of apartments with outer gates. It was few minutes walk from the main street yet further away enough to be a rather quite zone. Without a doubt would stay there again if we returned and would highly recommend it to friends and family.
