A delightful little apartment, just perfect for our family of 4. The apartment itself was very pretty, and thoughtfully presented with everything we could have needed, and the courtyard was wonderful, a little oasis of calm at the end of each exciting day. We liked the Santa Croce area too – a very local flavour with the nearest Campo full of children playing football and parents chatting in the afternoons after school, and with some lovely restaurants and ice cream parlours just a few minutes walk away. The service from Venetian apartments was impeccable. We will definitely use them again, and have already been recommending the website to friends.


Thank you for a lovely stay. We have all enjoyed our stay in Venice and the tranquility of the lovely garden.


We are now back in Venice, California and are already missing Venice, Italy. We had such a good time staying at your apartment – it made our time there very relaxing. We both enjoyed meeting the owners and appreciated their help and time in getting us settled.

I just wanted to write and let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at the Santa Croce Giardino apartment. The garden was beautiful and a welcome respite from the heat and busier areas of Venice and everything we could need was provided to make a home from home. I’m reluctant to recommend it too much as I’d love to be able to rent it out again in the future. The owner left us a bottle of prosecco and a warm welcome note for our arrival and we spent many a happy day enjoying the scent of jasmine in the garden. The area was peaceful in a residential area and felt more like the real Venice. Easy to get to from the station (and no bridges for the suitcase to navigate) and the apartment was lovely. A perfect holiday thank you and hopefully we will return!


We wanted to let you know how very much we enjoyed our stay in your delightful Garden Apartment in Sante Croce. We were made very welcome by the keyholder who takes very good care of the apartment, it was immaculate. The great locallity meant that we were able to shop locally and at the Rialto Market and enjoy our midday meal in the wonderful garden, in between visiting lots of Venice’s many sights. You are right, Venice is amazing and seems to have even more to offer each time we return.Thank you so much for allowing us to move our stay on a week when we found out we were unable to travel on the original date. We were very impressed with your speed and efficiency.

I thought I should email you to say how much we enjoyed our stay in Venice. My sister I thought that it was a delightful city – so much to see and do that we will have to make a return trip one day. Also, the apartment is absolutely lovely and we so enjoyed the garden. It is in a great location, close to a vaporetto stop and to shops and restaurants – couldn’t be better really. Maybe we will make a return visit or to another of your apartments in San Polo/Santa Croce.


My family greatly enjoyed our stay in the lovely house in Venice taking all three apartments (v139, v191, v220)- much the nicest we have ever rented. We were impressed with the fact that the flats were so well furnished and equipped – and also immaculately clean, so thanks to your representative for that. We all, especially the children, loved having such a large and beautiful garden.


I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed the stay in Venice. The house was delightful and very central for sightseeing. Thank you once again and in particular for the very kind gifts.

T. & N.T

All eight of us enjoyed staying in your apartments (v191, v139 and v220) enormously. We were touched and delighted by the presents which greeted us (Prosecco was such a good choice – it is a great favourite of ours), and we loved the apartments and their decor. Your representative was very kind and helpful, and she provided me with some challenging vocabulary exercises as she explained the whereabouts of fridges, washing machines and central heating controls!

Our planes, taxis, arrivals and departures all went perfectly smoothly, and we were immediately able to relax in our comfortable apartments. We all had an extremely happy week, and I was asked to write on behalf of the whole party.


Have just had a week at Santa Croce Giardino in Venice. Having been to Venice several times in hotels this was the first time in an apartment. The owners happened to be in Venice when we arrived and were most hospitable; the lady who looked after the apartment was excellent and the apartment itself was superb. Many thanks for your service and we will not hesitate to use you again.


This is just a quick e-mail to say thank you, again, for another lovely stay in Venice courtesy of Venetian Apartments. We stayed in the Santa Croce apartments in April, myself and my fiancee, her sister, parents and grandparents. We all loved all of the apartments, all of which were, as ever, impeccable. Do pass on our heartfelt thanks to all at Venetian Apartments and to the owner herself. We will of course be using you again next year!


Just a quick email to thank you for staying in your beautiful apartments. They were all really lovely and very comfortable. This helped to make our stay in Venice even more special. Hope to visit Venice again in the not too distant future.


Just to let you know – we had a wonderful time in Venice with lots of sunshine and it was very warm. The apartment was beautiful, in a quiet location, very clean, very well furnished and your representative was very helpful and friendly. We would certainly stay there again. We could walk anywhere from the appartment and in the evenings we could eat outside of one of those many lovely Trattorias just in that area. Thank you again for your help!


Many thanks. We have been extremely comfortable and have throughly enjoyed our week in Venice. Our thanks also to the owner for the gifts that were here on our arrival. We hope to return.


Thank you for your lovely welcome and gifts. The apartment is lovely and we will definitely be visiting again. We have had a brilliant week despite the earlier rain.


We enjoyed staying at your wonderful “Santa Croce Giardino” very much. We spend hours in your beautiful garden. We appreciate your personal touch! We hope to come back soon.

This is an overdue email to say that I was very impressed with your company’s service. The web site is one of the best I have seen, with helpful information about floor plans etc. The apartment was great and wonderful, the owner was in Greece but she was great in organising things and I have recommended your service far and wide.


I just wanted to send you and the owner a note to thank you for the high standard of the apartment Santa Croce Giardino, and the good service. The apartment really made our holiday in July and the location was quiet but still convenient – we especially enjoyed the garden. My family and I began to feel like locals after a while. We were all sad to leave. I look forward to booking with you again in the future and will recommend you to friends.

Dear Signora, many thanks for a lovely stay at “Santa Croce Giardino” and especially for all your kind gifts for us! We are very sad to leave Venice but look forward to returning again next year.


My family and I want to thank you for providing such wonderful accomodation for us during our stay in Venice. The flats were perfect in that our whole family could be together. The owner has done a terrific job of decorating and furnishing the apartments and everything was absolutely delightful. We intend to book all three apartments (v139, v191, v220) in May of next year as well.

The apartment in Santa Croce was a complete delight. The garden fabulous and the service/help brilliant. We were not the easiest customers with changes to our travel plans, a very young child, delayed flights etc, but found Venetian Apartments and their representatives absolutely superb. Venice is a dream destination anyway, but staying in this tranquil apartment with such a huge garden made it a total joy. Having a very active toddler it was wonderful to be able to relax while he pottered around the garden in total safety. The whole trip was such as success that we stayed on an extra three days. The quality of the apartment certainly justified the cost – I’ve never rented a self-catering apartment beofre that actually has proper cooking utensils: knives that cut, pans that aren’t burnt. Very handy for the Rialto markets too. We will be returning.


We have just returned from a marvellous holiday in Venice spent at the Santa Croce Giardino apartment. It was beautifully appointed, extremely clean and the owner had very kindly left a bottle of prosecco, a cake and drinks and chocs for our children. She arrived herself the following day and spent a great deal of time advising us on how to get to her apartment in Veronza where we spent the following week.

When we arrived there after a stunning drive along the banks of the Lago di Garda she was there to meet us again. Her Dolomite apartment is also stunning and once again there were little welcoming presents left in the fridge.

The owner seems to take huge amounts of trouble in the presentation of her apartments – in both cases we felt as though we were her personal guests staying at her own house.

My family and I have rented many houses and apartments over the years, including Landmark and National Trust properties. These apartments have been the nicest so far – many congratulations to you in finding them.


We returned last week from our 5th or 6th holiday arranged through yourselves, all of which we have thoroughly enjoyed, this is probably being the best combining, as it did, a week in Venice with a week in Veronza courtesy of the owner.

J. & S.P

We have enjoyed staying in your home very much. We’ve had everything we’ve needed and have especially enjoyed sitting out in the garden. This is our first visit to Venice. It is beautiful. We’ve enjoyed walking and getting lost! We’ll definitely return.

We have just returned from Venice and I am writing to let you know how much my wife and I enjoyed staying at your Santa Croce Giardino apartment. It was a lovely apartment, and quite comfortable for us and our son.

I fell in love with Venice all over again. My wife and I were there last in 1999 and rented an apartment in the San Polo area through another company. The company you use was very efficient and everything was as they said. Thank you again for making us feel welcomed.


Thank you for the lovely welcome you left for us in the apartment in Venice last week. The Prosecco, the little glass holly, the toys and sweets for the girls and the Panetone were all very much appreciated and so kind of you. The apartment was delightful and we had a simply marvellous week.


Just a quick note to let you know we’ve returned from Venice, and please thank the owners for us.

The apartment was great, they’re wonderful people, our vacation was an experience we’ll always remember and we’ll  be back. Venice is such a wonderful city, we feel as though we’ve left a favorite friend behind and we must go back!

Thank you so much for your help. We’ll most definitely book through you again and we’ll tell all our friends about how great you all are. Everything worked like a charm – perfect. Thanks again.
