Review 959: Venice Rentals, San Angelo


Review by msbacon from CA

2bed/2bath apartment in San Marco, Venice


winter of 2002, 7 days


The apartment was just superb in every way. It was locted centrally, close to vaporetto stops and many marvelous food shops. The house/apartment was brand new inside with the most beautiful tiles in the bathrooms I have ever seen. It was very well furnished and had a complete kitchen. It was quite and very peaceful. One bedroom had two singles, one bedroom had a king size bed and the living room had an extra long couch that could comfortably sleep 2 adults. The price was very reasonable for such an exquisite home away from home.

I highly recommend using Venice Rentals if you are going to stay in Venice for more than just a couple of nights. You really become attached to your espresso shop, your small grocery stores and your Italian neighbors. I have used Venice Rental several times and will contine to use them in the future. They deliver what they promise - how delightful!!

Nearby Amenities

Yes, everything you could want or need was just steps away.

The House/Apartment

Yes, the building itself was certainly historical, but it had been very well maintained and the apartment itself was all brand new inside.


There was a private patio outside our window, but it was not accessable to us. We did become friends with the people who had the huge patio and we waved to them when ever we were both home and enjoy our short conversations with them.

Furnishings/Cleanliness/Living Areas

Furniture was all new and in excellent shape. Yes, there were enough chairs for more than eight people. The apartment was immaculate in every way.


Beds were very comforatable. Bathrooms were works of art with their shiny new mutli-colored tiles that were just a work of art in themselves. One bathroom had a bathtub and a clothes washer plus sink, shelves for all toiletries and the other had a great shower with the same thoughfulness to shelving and all the usual bathroom needs.


Kithen was just great, one of the best I have ever found in a rental. Had cupboards, plenty of counter space, great refrigerator, large sink, plenty of dishes and a kitchen table and chairs. Plus it had a formal dining table in one end of the large living room and plenty of chairs.

Problems or Bonuses

Yes, it had closets, real closets and plenty of them. We were all able to hang up all of our clothes.

Agency and Representatives (and price)

We were treated like royalty. Yes and English speaking person met us at our boat stop and helped us with our luggage and stayed and explained all the particularities of the apartment. They left their phone number and their cell phone. They were very prompt in resonding to any questions we had. I felt very comforatable knowing they were their if we need anything at all. They were professional and seems genuinelly concerned about our comfort and ability to enjoy Venice.

Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?

I highly recommend using this agency to anyone going to Venice. I cannot think of a single thing that was not just perfect. I would and will stay with them every time I visit Venice.
