Giovanna was incredibly helpful and friendly and the apartment was extremely well stocked and clean. It was 5 minutes from a vaporetto stop that can get you to the airport or railway station. I'd happily stay again or recommend it to others.
Great location, 5 minutes from main tourist route through Venice and from vaparetto stop. Lots of nearby restaurants, bars and shops but none close enough to disturb the peace.
The apartment was ideal for self catering with full cooking facilities, fridge and washing machine.
Great bed, comfortable and large enough to spead out in.
Nice bathroom with bath and shower.
Giovanna was very welcoming and helpful giving us great information about the local area.
If its a tase of real Venice that you want then this is the ideal spot for you.
The Della Orto Vapporetta stop is just 5 minutes walk from the apartment which is situated next to the historical Madonna Della Orto church.
Our apartment was on the second floor overlooking the canal. It was spotlessly clean and well equipped. Giovanna the owner who also lives in the block greeted us when we arrived, briefing us on the workings of the apartment and giving hints and tips such as supermarkets, restaurants and bars etc. Having stayed in Venice on numerous ocasions we found this to be a real peaceful area to relax at the end of the day after experiencing the hustle and bustle of the main tourist areas.
We shall definitely return to Loft casa aurora when we next visit Venice.
We were given a very warm welcome by our host and despite our combined language limitations we were given clear instructions for everything in the apartment including useful information about shops , bars and restaurants nearby.
The apartment is comfortable and homely and has a well appointed kitchen. It's location is ideal. Just a 2 min walk from the Madonna De' Orto water taxi stop so perfect for getting from the train station or direct to the airport.
I think what made our stay so lovely was the warmth of our host when we first arrived. The city then enhanced that and the peace and quiet of the location made us feel like real Venetians . Perfect location , close enough to the sights but away from the crowds.
Just arrived home from wonderful stay at Loft Casa Aurora.It was a real, cosy comfortable home from home on what has been quite a wet week in Venice.Almost next door to the fabulous church of Madonna Del Orto in a quiet residential area the boat from the airport took about half a hour,27 euros return, and the lovely friendly owner Giovanna, who lives in the apartment under Loft Casa, met us from the waterbus,( even though it was 10pm when we arrived.) She has thought of everything anyone might need, particularly in the kitchen. In years of self catering we have never had so much crockery and cutlery and even bags to take for food shopping.The views from the living room windows are beautiful and it was such a joy to watch all the boats going past.The photos above really don't do it justice, it is much more spacious than it appears in this Trip advisor post.The area has some good restaurants and trattoria within 5 minutes walk too.We will definitely stay with Giovanna when we return to beautiful Venice. Can't wait!
