We decided to arrive in Venice by vaporetto, from the airport. Much more romantic than the bus! As arranged earlier via email, Guido met us at the Guglie stop in Cannaregio. He walked us to the accommodation, a two floor townhouse in a very quiet area five minutes from the train station. There, we fulfilled formalities and shared a bottle of prosecco. Guido then took us for a walk around the neighbourhood, filling us in with details drawn from his evident knowledge of the history of the area. It helped to 'ground' us in the place, and alert us to the fact that there is more to Venice than the standard tourist itinerary.

The accommodation itself was comfortable and warm; everything one would need for a self-catering trip was there. There is an en suite bathroom with shower in the bedroom upstairs, and another bathroom with a full sized bath on the ground floor. Being close to a vaporetto stop, it was very straight forward heading into the thick of things. We took advantage of this because the weather was rather inclement, but walking to San Marco would probably only take 30-40 minutes at a stroll.

Cannaregio is an interesting area in itself - laid back and still Venetian in vibe. The accommodation is close to the old Ghetto (and the new Ghetto, and the even newer Ghetto!). Anice Stellato (in Fondamenta de la Sensa, maybe 10-15 minutes walk from the apartment) was our favourite restaurant of those we visited while in Venice (followed closely by La Zucca in Santa Croce). Great food and very friendly staff.

All in all, Guido's pad is a great place to spend a few days visiting this rather extraordinary city. Good value too!

Lovely apartment, Well equip and convenient location. But the best part was the excellent service from Guido. Guido came to pick us up from the train station, served us cakes and juice (he had correctly guessed that we do not take alcohol and I appreciated his sensitivity) and then proceeded to bring us around the area. He was like our personal tour guide, pointing out buildings or area and telling us the history and significance of them. He spent more than 2 hours with us and we thanked him for making our first introduction to Italy in such a positive note. It was a fantastic start to our 2 weeks holiday in Italy. Thank you Guido!!

“Stay Here - Perfect Place/Perfect Host”

Near the train station, perfect wi fi, walking distance to all of Venice, and a host who meets you with Champagne and Italian cake...why stay anywhere else. Affordable, very nice two story apartment in very quiet extremely safe neighborhood. Refrigerator, coffee maker and small patio for morning coffee before you venture out to wander the streets of Venice. We could not have been more pleased. Guido, the owner, made staying in Venice easy as he gave us almost two hours of his time to show us around soon after arrival. If you want to have a stay to remember, you just found the place. We are coming back.

The apartment was fabulous. It was well equipped with everything we needed (including comfortable beds for 4 adults), in a very quiet neighbourhood near the train station. Once we contacted Guido, he met us very quickly in the Plaza Roma and helped us with our luggage. He was very gracious and took us for a short tour, giving us some history of the area. Upon our return to the apartment, he poured us some lovely wine, set us up on wi-fi/internet, gave us instructions for all appliances, along with maps and information for the area. The only gliche we had was in connecting with Guido by Texting. Our phone did not seem to work and we had difficulty in getting anyone in the Plaza to help us. After asking 6 or 7 people for assistance(including the Information Kiosks) we finally found someone in the Hotel Reservations in the Plaza to call him for us. You can not depend on your phone working, so a set time for meeting before the trip would be less frustrating. We will definitely recommend your place and will come back if we are ever back in Venice. Thank you again, Guido, for making Venus a memorable visit.
