The apartment is very well situated. A 15 minute walk from the train station. Close to supermarkets and the main area of Canareggio. A 25 minute walk to San Marco and a 15 minute walk to the vaporetto stop for boats to Murano and Burano.
While the apartment was clean and comfortable, the best feature by far was the little balcony over the canal which allowed you to sit and watch Venice life go by on the water. A great spot to come home to after a day's sight-seeing.
Stefano is a fantastic host. His communication and responsiveness was excellent. He left an excellent bottle of prosecco and biscuits as a welcome gift. We arrived at Santa Lucia station in the pouring rain and intended to catch the vaporetto around to the apartment. Because of flooding it was not running so we had to walk. Stefano's friend Lucia met us halfway there and showed us to the apartment - a lovely gesture.
I would stay here again if I come back to Venice.
This is a modern, clean, spacious apartment located in a residential area, with easy access to shops and restaurants. Communication with Stefano is prompt and informative. The balcony is unique - I didn't see any other balcony at canal level during my sightseeing - it means that you can drink your coffee (or Prosecco!) on the balcony and actually chat to people passing by on the canal! It was so entertaining! We will definitely book to go there next year!
Fantastic apartment away from the masses and with a beautiful balcony on one of the many canal. We really enjoyed our stay at this property and we wish we stayed longer.
Only drawback is that if you plan to stay after checkout in Venice there is no space to store your luggage, so you have to make a trip to you car or the train station.
The manager Stefano is very responsive and very helpful to give you all the info you ask.
Absolutely wonderful apartment with balcony on the canal. The apartment tastefully combines all mod-cons with genuine Venetian historical features. We stayed three nights with our two children, but wished we had booked more. We didn't want to leave. Ideally situated on a quiet canalbetween vaporetto station and all the attractions on Canareggio. It was a pleasure to return to the apartment after a day's sightseeing, or dinner out, and enjoy a glass of wine, or two, on the balcony. We have recommended Stefano's apartment to friends and want to return again soon.
Thank you Stefano!
We thoroughly enjoyed the flat, and there were 3 of us for 2 nights. It is easy access from the airport, and great walks to San Marco, Grand Canal, and other parts of Venice. The balcony makes it very special, and our last night we just had a bottle of wine and made our own appetizers and watched the world go by on the small canal off the balcony. The sunset added to the experience. The place is clean and quiet, and the communication with Stefan could not be better. He responds very quickly to texts and his added advice made our stay even better.
I do recommend a water taxi to go to the train station, as in our case one of our group was going to have trouble with the bags and walking. Stefan set that up, and we loaded the bags right off the balcony and walked around to the hospital side to board. We liked that ride better than a gondola. Highly recommend if you want to be away from the crowds at times.
