|Minimum Stay||4 - 7 nights|
Located in the residential part of the town, it is equally close to Rialto and San Marco Square. This apartment has a unique character, as it has been furnished with great taste and antique pieces, and has a 2 large windows facing the Gran Canal where you'll enjoy a wonderful view of gondolas rowing by and elegant palaces. The double bedroom is spacious, the bathroom is newly furnished and the kitchenette is fully equipped. There is a large living and dining area, of about 40sq m.
The Mezzanine is on a high main floor, it has only 3 steps to enter the apartment and a water entrance that will allow the guests to enter the building directly from the water taxi or the gondola. There are no bridges or steps from the vaporetto stop and the door entrance.
Our family of 4 (2 adults 2 teens)enjoyed a 3 night stay in this spacious,comfortable and convenient apartment right on the Grand canal.
The sights and sounds of Venice were there to enjoy right outside the huge windows,yet double glazing kept the apartment beautifully quiet. Palazzo Mocenigo is located within a neighbourhood of galleries, small restaurants and local cafes in all in a labyrinth of alleys. This provided a great base for exploring Venice.
Our host Marco met us at the Vaporretto stop and took us to the delightful, restored, apartment building , thoroughly informing us of all we needed to know.I will happily book through Red House next visit.
This apartment fronts on the Grand Canal. Watching the city come to life each morning was very enjoyable. Bruno met us at a Vaparetto stop and took us to the apartment. We thought we would never find our way around! It turns out it was vey easy to navigate. The apartment is @a 10 minute walk to St. Mark's. The neighborhood offers everything you could possibly want. The last 3 days we had water coming into the main hallway outside our front door. It never entered our apartment. It gave us a sense of what many locals go through during high tides! we would gladly come back to this apartment!
This apartment provides a great Venician experience: well located (near San Samuele Plaza, which appeared as very safe to us) right on the Grand Canal (ground floor). As other reviews mentioned, it is quite sizeable. We did not have problems with the hot water. This apartment would deserve 5* if the the cooking plate and the furniture were upgraded. The service provided by the owner (Red House ) was outstanding; the best experience we ever had.
Close to the popular/tourist spots in Venice but located in a quiet area of San Marco. Enjoy sunset on the Grand Canal on your own private jetty with bellinis, cheeses, etc purchased from the nearby supermarket. Plenty of good restaurants nearby or take a 3 min walk to one of two ferry stops and head elsewhere for a meal. The kitchen is small and furniture dated but comfortable. Great for a couple.
The apartment is literally right on the Canal Grande 40 cm above the water.
Beautiful furnished in an Italian - antiques kind a way. Clean. A friendly man (Bruno) to explain the apartment and the island (on a map)
We had to get accustomed to the strong coffee maker (and for the none Italians it would have been nice if their would have been just a regular one), the washing machine was't working very well but ....
other then that: as everywhere in the world it's all about
Location, Location, Location
And the apartment is in a perfect spot. Far enough away from the crowds (we went in august) and yet close by water taxi's, tragetto's, gondola's and just walking. The charm of the island is: you can walk everywhere...and so we did.
We stayed 4 nights, which we found a bit long ... but we didn't go out to Murano or the Lido
All in all a very romantic travel one has to do at least once in a lifetime.
We definitely would recommend this property to other people going to Venice.
Great welcome and information on arrival including some fantastic local advice on restaurants and supermarkets. Couldn't ask for a better vista of the hustle and bustle of the Grand Canal.
Location superb, wonderfully spacious, management on time and helpful. Hot water a bit of a challenge in the shower now and then, or it would be 5 stars. Fun to be on the Grand Canal... Drama and comedy --enchanting ! Our final days in Italy-- after 2 weeks-- were a great memory that my grandson and I will treasure . Thanks!
