Reviews of this property
Very cozy and nice apartment with very good equipment, central location and very quiet. We have felt very comfortable and looked forward each evening to our "home"!
Sehr gemütliches und schönes Apartment mit sehr gut Ausstattung, zentral gelegen und sehr ruhig. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und uns jeden Abend auf unser "Zuhause" gefreut!
Well, we probably expected a little bit too much for this apartment. But the price suggested perfection, which was not in every aspect the case.
Positive: the kitchen is really good equipped, good tools (even one spatula from Rösle) and the china, cooking pots, cooking knifes and cutlery are in shape and of high standard. There is a booklet about the renovation of the apt., which shows very well how intensive and costly the renovation was.
Neutral: the pictures in Wimdu give a impression that the apt. is bigger as it really is. But it is lovely decorated and the pictures are showing the reality.Room upstairs is very small, but the bathroom is nice.
Not so positive: the television gets its signals from Hotbird satellite, with loads of arab - religious - XXX related channels, but Rai 1 for example one does not get. This was really more than a pitty during the World Cup Finals and has to be changed big time. 90% of the channels are scrambled/ pay TV channels. The rest: see above.
There is no Wireless Lan installed and the apt. does not have a terrace with a view over the city. There are other apt. here in Wimdu which have that and we missed it a lot! Regarding the price per night for this apt. I think at least wireless lan with a reasonable speed is an absolute must. After asking we got W-Lan from Barbara with 3G speed. Normally this is NOT included in the daily fee.
We did not have hot water the first night, but next day by noon Barbara fixed it. But it is the fact that one third of our stay we did not have hot water!
Resumé: really nice apt., which is not really a bargain with need of improvement in details. Therefore "only" 4 stars.

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.
