BEST AIRBNB EXPERIENCE! The pictures of this property are spot on, which we're finding is rare on here. What you see is definitely what you get, and then some! First, the location is amazing. Steps away from the boat taxi dock, but not entirely in the heart of all the tourist traps. It was great that even with being so close to everything, there wasn't a lot of noise. 10 minute walk to San Macro, 7 minutes to our favorite gelato place, and 1 minute to multiple outside dining restaurants. Second, Alessandro. This guys was GREAT! He stayed in communication with us a couple days before the trip (advising us on what water taxi to take, where to meet, etc) and throughout the trip. Alessandro gave us excellent recommendations on where to eat, and was helpful with every question we had. Check in and out was flawless and simple. Third, the actual apartment. Spacious, CLEAN and equipped with everything imaginable. (There was even laundry soap and dryer sheets for the w/d -- which I might add washes clothes extremely well, and I'm SUPER picky on how my clothes are washed, and I mean SUUUUUUPER picky.) Water pressure was great, the water temperature was consistent, a/c unit worked. Modern decor and updated appliances. The bed was firm, which was fantastic after walking all day. Overall, a complete diamond in the rough. Only issue we had, which wasn't huge, hence why i'm still giving it 5 stars, was the wifi was sporadic. Worked half a day here, a whole day there, and sometimes not at all, but Alessandro was polite and looked into the issue for us. Couldn't ask for a better host or property. I HIGHLY recommend this listing if you are intending to stay in Venice. You get the best bang for your buck, without having to sacrifice every day amenities like in a hotel.
