A+ all around! The apartment has a large living room and centralized air conditioning throughout. We visited with 2 young children (ages 8 months and 2.5) and Chantal provided us with a high chair, a crib, and plastic plates and silverware. If our kids were older, we could have taken advantage of the bunk beds as well, but in our case, it wasn't needed.We found that Cannaregio was the perfect place to stay with young children, since it was away from the bustle of San Marco, but close enough to it and the Grand Canal that we could still visit. We took the Alilaguna water bus from the Venice airport (15 euros) and the stop (F.te Nova) was only 100 yards from the apartment, so very convenient.We had a great time and if we visit Venice again, we definitely plan to stay here again.Evan
Great location. Spacious apartment with more than adequate facilities for a short stay. Check in was fine, although much information to absorb, late in the day (our delayed flight meant we also had to pay a late check in fee, but I had this information beforehand). Quick responses to queries.Sharon
Absolutely amazing stay at this flat. Perfect location a few minutes walk from a water bus stop and a few minutes walk to San Marco. Large flat with more than enough space for 5 of us, everything we needed was provided (including extra towels which is always helpful!)Easy check in and check out and a wealth of visitor information provided by the lovely Chantal. We would definitely rebook this flat as it was literally perfect!Lisa
My Mum and step Dad recently stayed her with a large party using 3 of the apartments. She has asked me to leave feedback for her. The apartments are all spacious clean and comfortable to stay in. Chantal is very helpful and all round nice person. The apartments are convenient for getting round Venice and are in a nice area. Thank Chantal for making a our stay a positive experience.Natalie Coleman Northridge
Chantal è simpatica, affabile e disponibile a rispondere ad ogni quesito in tempi rapidi. L'accoglienza è stata ottima, l'appartamento pulito situato in un palazzo molto tranquillo e immerso in un quartiere fuori dalla bolgia turistica. Si trova in una buona posizione perché i negozi di alimentari sono nei paraggi così come la fermata del vaporetto di Fondamente Nove. Camminando in poco tempo si raggiungono Rialto e Piazza San Marco anche se il quartiere in sé merita di essere vissuto da vicino tra piazzette, canali minori e vicoli labirintici. E' sicuramente un indirizzo che ci sentiamo di consigliare.Sabina
The place was very quiet and spacious. I'd forgotten soap so I did need to go and purchase some since there was none at the place. But there was coffee and tea available when I was there which was nice. It may have been left by previous "tenants" but it was a nice touch. I like to cook and there were ample pots, pans and dishware. She also made sure I knew how to get to the closest grocery store which as well as local restaurants.Shawn
Chantal is awesome. She provided detail instructions to the place and recommendations to restaurants. We traveled with two kids and I didn't pay attention to the direction and got lost in Venice when we arrived. Chantal came to our rescued and took her time to explain how everything works in the apartment.Cindy
The host is very friendly, communicative and helpful. The apartment is in a good location close to the public boat transport, it was easy to get to from the train. It's also in a good position to walk to different points of interest in town. At the same time, it is in a not so touristy area, there are shops for locals, nice cafés. The apartment is basic, but spacious, very quiet. Thank you!Hana
This was a wonderful, spacious, clean apartment in a great location. Away from tourist traffic of San Marco, but just a short walk there or to Rialto Bridge, and 1 minute walk to catch boat to airport, Murano/Burano. Highly recommend. Chantal was very responsive and super helpful - arranged for water taxi to/from airport at deep discount from public prices, and had fantastic restaurant recommendations. We went to 4 of the restaurants she listed and were extremely pleased with each one.Megan
Chantal est venue nous chercher à l’embarcadère de Fondamente Nove qui est à environ 5 minutes à pied de l’appartement.L’appartement est situé dans un environnement très calme, il y a des petits restaurants sympathiques dans les alentours et quelques boutiques. Le pont du Rialto est à environ 10/15 min à pied.Le logement était très propre et fonctionnel, et les explications de Chantal étaient très claires et complètes.Le seul petit bémol est au niveau de la douche dans la salle de bain : la pression est faible et l’eau chaude est difficile à avoir. Hormis cela, le système d’ouverture de la porte de l’appartement avec une carte n’est pas très pratique lorsque tout les occupants ne rentrent pas en même temps. En résumé, je recommande fortement ce logement très agréable et fonctionnel pour une famille. Merci à Chantal pour son accueil et sa gentillesse !!Lisa
The flat was great, just as advertised. It was short walk to everything and was close to restaurants, shops, and a grocery.I recommend a couple blocks north west of the flat is a small non- description shop selling wine from barrels - great valueOverall it was a great place and very quiet - I'd recommend to anyoneChadwick
Chantal is great host! She is friendly and can help you and give any info you need. The location of the house is great near tourist places but very quiet. Near great place to eat (maybe that's all around venice) .The house is big and great to go with friend and family, fully equipped for babies! I would recommend it 100%Paula
