Review 1135: Venice Rentals, San Marcuola Apartment


Review by David from Australia

apartment sleeps 3, Venice


October 2004, 5 nights


On the top floor about 40 steps up. (The steps may be a disadvantage for an older person or someone with lots of luggage.) Its a quiet location by Venice standards.

Nearby Amenities

The apartment is close to a vaporetto stop and a small supermarket and a short walk and traghetto ride to the Rialto markets. Back towards the station are fruit and vegetable stalls. Lots of restaurants are within easy walking distance.

The House/Apartment

The buiding is in good shape and is shared with two other apartments lived in by permanent residents.


A small outside terrace affords a nice view over the rooftops of the surrounding area.

Furnishings/Cleanliness/Living Areas

The furniture was adequate and the apartment was clean.


The beds were comfortable and the bedroom had nice views across the rooftops. The bathroom was modern and clean.


The kitchen was OK and we managed to cook full meals easily. Drawbacks were that the oven was not working (the owner is attending to this) and, while there were good coffee making facilities, a kettle would have been appreciated for tea drinkers.

Problems or Bonuses

The clothes washing machine was a bonus.

Agency and Representatives (and price)

We were met by the owner who gave us a brief but very useful orientation. She also provided some excellent restaurant recommendations.

The web description and photos give an accurate picture of the apartment.

Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?

I would have no hesitation in staying there again.

Things to do in this area

I would recommend La Zuccha restaurant on the other side of the Grand Canal (but not far away from the apartment).
