Highly Recommended - Heart of Venice
We had an amazing experience staying at this luxury apartment in the Heart if Venice. The place is pure Venetian and luxury is an understatement. We felt like Italian royalty. Vanessa met us at the water taxi station, showed us the way and gave us numerous suggestions to eat and play. Her suggestions and her place made our short family stay one to remember. We would highly recommend it to friends, family and anyone else. In fact, we already have!

Quite the Venitian Experience !
The accommodations were exactly as the pictures show. Very clean, modern amenities but with a rich Venice vibe. Beautiful artwork, Murano chandeliers , everywhere you looked a touch of beauty. Ceilings, windows ....just superb!
We took private water taxi from airport to avoid walking with luggage through St Marks square. We showed the boat captain the email for the stop. Due to no fault of Vanessa, he dropped us off at wrong stop which we didn’t realize until he speed away. We called her contact who walked to meet us. We were 4 bridges away! So much for trying to get close by. Lol.
We were on first floor. In Venice 1st floor is upper floor. 36 stairs up. Ok to get in and out but tough with luggage. I had three strong guys going up , so ok. Just a FYI.
The AC was not on upon arrival so waited about an hour for apartment to cool down. Vanessa left us water, plum bread, coffee and crossaints. So thoughtful! Kitchen is very modern with anything you could possibly need.
Plenty of towels, extra sheets, soaps etc. more than most rentals leave. High quality too! One night we decided to wash a load of laundry. With the 2 AC’s running we blew breakers. Tried to figure out ourselves but missed one box of three. We called and Vanessa was very fast in sending someone over to resolve. So a note....if using multiple electrical appliances, be aware to shut some off while using others. This is a hundreds of year old building. Feel bad we had to bother them on a weekend. They were so nice and responsive.
Location, just a stroll to St Marks Square . Other direction , shopping and Grand Canel. Loved location!
So, book this beautiful place. You won’t be sorry. Big, two bedrooms, family room, dining area, reception hall, two baths, great kitchen. Clean, modern with a touch of elegance. Wish we would ge back soon to enjoy. Hopefully we will!
