This apartment is rented through the Pensione Guerrato. The instructions they give you for getting to and from the Pensione and the apartment are to leave everyone at the Rialto vaporetto stop. come to the Pensione and collect the key, pick up your party and head out for the apartment.
This is good advice and sounds like a bit of a bother. It isn't at all. I walked over the Rialto and down the street for 2 minutes and found the Pensione with no trouble. I let them know we were going to join them for breakfast (5 Euros per person) and left with the keys. Walked back across the Rialto, picked up my party and cruised to the apartment following directions from the front desk staff. Friendly and good English.
The apartment is very clean, and warm once you turn on the hot water/heater. I didn't ask about it but we figured it out quickly. The controls are in the kitchen which is well equipped. It's located near a church and has a lovely view of the piazza.
We picked up food to keep in the refrigerator which could be reheated in the microwave for a snack. This turned out to be a good option because the dining in Venice was pricey.
We liked having the freedom to come and go without passing back the key. The kids slept in the kitchen on two twin beds. Our bedroom was one of the largest I had during my trip, as was the bathroom.
We were easy walking distance to St Mark's and the Rialto. We had a blast getting lost.
One night we got lucky enough to hear a serenade from a gondolier as they rowed under the bridge. Amazing. I LOVE Venice!
