“Wow, wow, wow!”
Reviewed January 5, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Opposite one of my favourite churches - the basilica Santa Maria dela Salute, and only a few minutes walk to St Mark's Square, this is a really lovely place to stay. We hope to be back!

“Elegant Place to Stay”
Reviewed October 27, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Do not be disappointed by the state of the balcony when approaching this apartment via river taxi. Once the cushions have been placed and the sun shines it does look like the brochure picture. Make sure the back cushions are tied to the wooden back as they can slip into the canal if not careful.
A wonderful location and THE best view in Venice, practically all of our time was spent on the balcony with the exception of sleeping in the luxurious bedrooms and cooking in the well-equipped kitchen.
Take note however, the Grand Canal is not a quiet area. Throughout the day there is the sound of the wakes made by the vaporetto (water buses) and the gondolieri singing as well as the day-to-day traffic of hotel supplies, refuse collection & building supplies being delivered. It is all very fascinating and wonderful to watch, especially with a glass of Prosecco! Throughout the night, after the gondelieri have ‘parked up’ their gondole; the sound of the canal slapping and swishing is surprisingly loud and can take a bit of getting used to, especially in the main bedroom which overlooks the Grand Canal – a small price to pay for such a location.

“Exceptional accommodations”
Reviewed May 24, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Rented this apt. With a group of 8 earlier this month - absolutely spectacular!
The apt. is very spacious, with a private courtyard and deck directly on the grand canal.
In an excellent area of San Marco. The only negative is the 4th bedroom is very small.
I hope to rent this apartment again.

“The most beautiful Apartment and view of Venice ever!”
Reviewed August 13, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

people found this review helpful

The views from this apartment are truly breathtaking! It is positioned on the Grand Canal directly opposite the Salute Church. We are a family of 5, ( 3 teenage children), and none of us got tired of sitting on the beautiful little patio, jutting out over the canal, to watch the gondolas etc, pass by. We arrived at the apartment by a private water taxi from the airport, which was arranged by "Trulyvenice" for us. I have to say, it was the most wonderful way to arrive in Venice, taken right down the Grand Canal, under the Rialto Bridge, and dropped off right outside the apartment at its own private landing jetty. The apartment is huge! With 4 bedrooms and bathrooms and plenty of space to chill out in, after a hard days sightseeing! The location is fantastic, just a few minutes walk to St Mark's Square and lots of beautiful shops on your doorstep. The WiFi was brilliant in the apartment, which was a bonus for our children!! The apartment was located inbetween the Gritti Palace and the Westin Regina, both 5 star hotels, but I hate to think what you would have to pay in these for the same space and views! The kitchen was large and well stocked with appliances. We had a lovely time in Venice, made all the better by this beautiful apartment. Tip:- If you are visiting St Mark's Basilica, go online and book a timed ticket, it will stop you having to queue for about an hour in the heat!! It does cost 1 euro per person to do this, but its the best 5 euros I spent!! Also it meant I booked the visit for 11.30am, when the mosaics in the Basilca are lit. This only happens for an hour every day from 11.30-12.30! They are truly spectacular!

“What a wonderful location”
Reviewed June 13, 2012 for a stay in June 2012

We were a group of 8 friends who had been looking for somewhere larger than usual in Venice. Another couple of friends also came for a few days and stayed in an apartment nearby. Before we booked the big issue was that it was obvious that the 4 bedrooms are of very different sizes and standards. So we agreed on different contributions to the overall cost: Grand Canal room 37%, big interior bedroom 27%, kitchen bedroom 21% and courtyard room 15%. In retrospect, as we all shared the common areas, I'd probably pitch it at more like 34/26/23/17%. Having a water gate for the building made airport transfers by water taxi very attractive, especially with 5 of us travelling together. Truly Venice were very helpful over arranging taxis, letting us in and augmenting the kitchen glasses etc (I don't think it had been let to 4 adult couples before).

The apartment is huge, almost enough to keep you fit. The finish is not so perfect that you feel you have to take your shoes off as you come in and having books around, eg wonderful Roiter photo books, is a good touch. The bedrooms are all fine except that the courtyard one is small with two single beds and you have to be a bit careful about locking up behind you at night or going out. The wifi works well and the kitchen was up to cooking great meals for 10. We sometimes ate in the courtyard, sometimes in the huge dining room. The living room is comfortable too but the star attraction is undoubtedly the wooden seating area projecting out into the Grand Canal looking across at Salute. Most of us had vaporetto passes so going off for supplies to the Rialto market or to supermarkets was no great bother. Overall a very special week.
