Airbnb – Alberto & Giovanna’s Apartment
Alberto and Giovanna’s two bed apartment made for the perfect stay in Venice with a family. Everything from the location, to their communication and attentiveness throughout the whole booking/ staying process was faultless and having trustworthy supportive hosts made all the difference.
Set in a superb location, near enough to all the main attractions like St Marks Square at a 10 minutes walk, it’s also far enough away from the hustle and bustle to allow for a peaceful nights sleep. The residential area it’s based in has a small shop only 10m away, a grocery/fruit stall literally on the corner of the street and a much larger supermarket a few minutes walk away. In the area can also be found many lovely bars, restaurants and coffee shops. The water bus stop ‘Ospedale’ is a 5 minute walk away and reaching Marco Polo airport can be done directly within 40 minutes.
The accommodation itself was delightful, spotlessly clean and comfortable, and every room had ample space and all the needed appliances to make for an easy going stay. The double bed was extremely comfortable, and a travel cot was provided for Luca to sleep in. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils allowing us to cook a delicious dinner on two of the evenings, not to mention the cupboards were full of amenities; tea, fresh coffee, milk, cold drinks, beer and wine, cakes and other snacks.
What made our stay here even better was the support give from hosts Alberto and Giovanna. They very kindly offered to meet us at the water bus stop in the early hours, when we arrived, and showed us straight to the apartment, giving us a full guided tour of their place, so we knew exactly how everything worked like the heating and kitchen appliances etc. On our morning of check out, they picked us up at 6am to walk us back to the water bus stop in order to make our early flight out of Marco Polo Airport. They gave us numerous suggestions for nice places to eat nearby and helped us navigate our way with a map reading introduction of Venice. They were both delightful people and they made our whole experience of air bnb in Venice one we wouldn’t hesitate to give 5 stars all round.
