The apartment is nicely located in Mestre, with a bus at the end of the street which takes you into Venice every 20 minutes or so. The centre of Mestre is a 20 minute walk away and has bars and restaurants which are much cheaper and less touristy than Venice. The apartment is well equipped with just about all that one needs. The bed and furniture are quite comfortable. Francesco is an urbane chap with plenty of recommendations for your stay in the area. The only criticism that I can make is that the walls and ceiling are rather thin and the noise from other apartments can occasionally be a little intrusive. On balance, recommended.
My mum and I really enjoyed staying at Francisco's place. He was nice and helpful host. We had a late flight and he waited for us until midnight, which could be a problem in many hotels so we appreciated it.
The location was ok. There is a bus 7 minutes away and goes right to Venice and it costs 1,5 Eur. The place is great for trip around Venetian region or even north of Italy. The main railway train station is also close and you can go almost anywhere you want. Beside Venice, we visited Treviso.
The apartment was clean and we didn't have any problems using it. At the end we would stay there again and we recommend the apartment to future guests.
We had a wonderful time while in Venice and it was highlighted by our stay here in this apartment. My niece, brother and I stayed for 3 nights and it was just perfect. 2 bedrooms, sleeps 4, a kitchen and a living room. So nice. Great location and the nicest owners. She was so helpful, she met us there exactly when she said she would, the apt. was very clean and just perfect. I'd suggest this place for anyone who can walk a 1/2 mile. It is 1/2 mile from the train station, not a problem for us, but it might be for some.
