Review 4282: Venice Rentals, Campo Gatte Canal View Apt


Review by marymarie from US

2bed/1.5bath apartment in Castello, Venice


last week, 8 days


The apartment was in a very Venetian neighborhood, we loved it, just six minutes to walk to S. Marco Square, in the Castello district. The area was wonderful, lots of shops, wine bars and cafes nearby. We were also on a canal overlooking gondolas and small crafts going by.

Nearby Amenities

We walked just one minute to the stores and restaurants. Our favorite restaurant was Da Remegio, about five minutes walk from the house.

The House/Apartment

This apartment and building itself was extremely old but restored and beautiful and kept integrity and beauty of the old style and architecture. There were just two others in our building, full time residents living there, nice Venetian people.


We had a lovely terrace.

Furnishings/Cleanliness/Living Areas

The apartment was incredible really. Absolutely lovely, plenty of seating, and gorgeous furnishings. We had a living room with large flat screen TV, a dining table in a separate dining room for six, a separate large kitchen, and two pretty bedrooms.


The beds were very comfortable and the bathroom was superb. It was actually a bath and 1/2, very nicely done.


The kitchen had everything we needed to cook which we did most every day at some point.

Problems or Bonuses

No problems at all.

Agency and Representatives (and price)

This agency was incredibly easy to work with. I spoke with Mauricio, the owner and he was very kind and patient with me explaining the apartments I had to choose from that would work for a party of four in the area that we preferred. He was super nice when he came to pick us up at the boat stop and even helped me with my luggage. The company has been in business for over eleven years Mauricio told us. He also gave us quite a nice tour on the way over to our home the afternoon that we arrived.

Mauricio spoke perfect English although he is from Venice. They have an office in Boston also where his wife Denise is from. We paid a small deposit in advance and this worked out well for us. Our price was 220, but I think it was on special, per night for the four of us total, there were no other fees or costs.

Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?

We would definitely recommend this apartment and Venice Rentals! I have already done so to friends at work. I plan to return next year with my parents.

Things to do in this area

Venice is so small we walked everywhere. From this apartment we weren't more than a 10 minute walk to a major attraction. It was just perfect for us. We loved Da Remegio restaurant just 5 minutes away from the apartment in the Castello neighborhood.
