"Home" in Venice

We've come to Venice the same couple weeks every year for 14 years and rent an apartment in different spots each time. This San Toma property was wonderful and afforded us everything we want when we come to Venice .... the apartment had all the amenities we require to feel at home - from the stocked kitchen to the perfect location (close to everything but tucked quietly away). Lots of days we wanted to just stay in the apartment, cook and just enjoy the sounds outside or stand on the balcony at look towards the old world traghetto. We had the wonderful opportunity to visit the owner (Giulia) at her beautiful home on the grand canal for an afternoon coffee. Many owners seem to duck out when their properties are rented .... not Giulia. She wanted to make sure we had everything we needed to enjoy our time in Venice. She had wonderful suggestions of new things to do. We even spoke with her adult sons ....and as one would expect if you meet Giulia, they were equally perfect hosts. Again, after 14 years we know what we want in a property ..... This San Toma apartment did not disappoint.
Highly recommend it .... Ciao!

Most pleasant week in Venice

We spent a week (3 adults and one 10 years old) in this most pleasant apartment which is exactly as advertised.It is vast,well decorated,very clean, and most comfortable with air-con. in the two rooms, each with its own bathroom.The kitchen is very well equipped. There are three small balconies, two overlooking a small canal leading to the Grand canal a mere 100 meters further where are the vaporetto and traghetto stations. This apartment is ideally located to visit Venice with restaurants,bars, gelaterias, grocery stores a few minutes walk. The owner,Giulia, is most charming and generous of a time to answer all questions you might have. She has prepared a booklet with maps and infos on museums,restaurants, emergency numbers ,lines of vaporetto, best way to and from airport,train station etc which was very helpful. She even had the fridge stocked with bottled water and a bottle of Prosecco.
If we ever come back to Venice, we will certainly choose this apartment again.

Wunderschöne Wohnung u. herzliche Gastfreundschaft

Eine äußerst komfortable, hervorragend ausgestattete Wohnung in perfekter Lage. Ein paar Schritte zur Vaporetto--Station San Tomà, die Traghetto-Fähre über den Canal Grande praktisch vor der Haustüre. Trotz brütender Hitze in Venedig waren durch den guten Schnitt der Wohnung die Nächte erträglich. Die Vermieterin Giulia M. ist rührend um ihre Gäste besorgt, sie hat uns mündlich und schriftlich mit allerlei nützlichen Restaurant- und Einkaufstipps versorgt. Wir werden bei zukünftigen Biennale-Besuchen sicher wieder ihre Gäste sein.
Molto grazie Giulia !

Great Apartment

Our group of 4 adults had a great 4 night stay at this Venice apartment rental. The apartment is clean, spacious and very well appointed. We all loved the small balconies over the canal. The apartment is close to the vaporetto stop, restaurants, shops, and markets. Giulia was wonderful to work with and the reservation process was smooth and hassle free.

Lovely, spotlessly clean, really good location.

Spent 10 days in Giula's beautifully upgraded apartment. Just the two of us, so we had lots of space, but 4 people would easily feel comfortable. We've rented apartments all over Venice, and this was the cleanest and best designed so far. Giula was welcoming and helpful as could be. There's a supermarket about 4 blocks away, a bakery just around the corner, a good restaurant a block away (San Toma Trattoria) and a vaperetto stop a few blocks from the front door.
You won't be disappointed.

Sehr schönes Appartment fast am Canal Grande

Wir verbrachten mit Freunden eine herrliche Woche in diesem schönen Appartment. Es liegt fast am Canal Grande in der Nähe der Traghetto-Station von San Toma. Vom kleinen Balkon aus, hat man einen schönen Blick auf die Anlegestelle. Das Wohnzimmer ist sehr schön ausgestattet mit bequemen Sofas, in der Küche ist alles vorhanden, um den Einkauf auf dem Rialto-Markt abends zu einem schönen Dinner zu zubereiten. Das Appartment liegt sehr günstig fast am San Toma Platz und in der Nähe von Bäckerei und Cafés. Auch zum Barnaba-PLatz und der Calle Lunga di Barnaba ist es nicht weit. Dort finden sich allerlei gute Restaurants.

Bellissima Venezia

We simply do not have the words to describe how wonderful this apartment is. It is large, warm, modern, very well appointed and just a pleasure to stay in. We were amazed not only to be on a canal but with a view of the Grand Canal! There are a number of wonderful restaurants nearby and be sure to visit the bar under the building in the late afternoon for a 'spritz' with the locals. We enjoyed being in a quiet residential area but with the vaparetto on the doorstep. Guilia was a pleasure to deal with and we would certainly recommend her apartment to anyone wanting a real Venetian experience.

A Venetian Dream

If you want to experience the best of Venice, this is your place. Guilia offers a lovely home with personalized luxury treatment. We have stayed in many wonderful rentals, but she truly went above and beyond to make our stay special. She met us at the train station and helped us navigate the vaporetto boat process and gave us a tour as we went thru the canal. She had many maps and recommendations that made every day special. She even had a lovely collection of books about Venice. We loved to watch the gondolas go by the balconies. She even invited us to her beautiful home for appetizers. Truly a hidden oasis in an amazing city:)
