Excellent, in every way. As an AirBnB user, never have I had such a wonderful time as when we stayed at Francesco and Rachele's place in Venice. What drew us to them were the reviews and the pictures and our expectations were surpassed even then. Francesco's words on our leaving "we will welcome you, your family and your friends back as family", and I truly feel as if we have been treated as family during our stay here So let's start with location. The flat is based literally next to Rialto Bridge, and when I say this, I mean it. You look out of a window and it's there, 50m away! So no matter how lost you get, just follow the signs to the bridge, and you know the entrance is just down the next side alley. From here, everywhere in Venice is walkable, so you really can't have a better location. There are loads of bars and restaurants nearby, wonderful food and it's a lively place to be. public transport links are just on the grand canal, 1 minute away. Next, the flat. The pictures are stunning, but the real thing is better. the floors are ornate, the kitchen and bathroom are more than adequate for at least 4 people, the furniture classy in true venetian style and the space you have is incredible! I walked in and I was speechless. Truly speechless. Add to this the fact that Francesco and Rachele have added in the little things like they stock the fridge with breakfast foods (plus they offer an option at a small extra cost to get even more food in), have real coffee and clean towels made us feel well looked after. Lastly, the service. Never have I met a more dedicated team than Francesco and Rachele. When your booking is confirmed, you get 2 emails in succession, firstly a .pdf about Venice with recommendations on things to do, where to go, how to get to the islands (Murano, Burano, etc.) including also tips on shopping and some great local restaurants and secondly with transport links on how to get to the place from the airport (I recommend the alilaguna as it is direct). Not only this, but the second .pdf also has a detailed description of where to get on, where to get tickets and how to get off. As part of the email, they asked us how we would like the beds arranged (2 doubles vs 1 double and 2 singles, with potential extra beds for babies) and also if we had any extra requirements (babysitters, restaurants, etc.). This for me goes the extra mile. Checking in, Francesco met us at the dock and helped us with our cases straight to the apartment. Doubly impressive as we arrived before the check in time. He told us again a brief introduction to Venice and gave us some useful tips on how to get around in particular the islands. He then booked us a table at a...

Tan cómodo

EXCELENTE!!!!! Súper recomendable!! Francesco nos envió información muy completa previó al viaje, días previos nos comunicamos muy rápido y nos encontramos en la parada del vaporetto Rialto. Una vez en la casa nos explicó y nos dio recomendaciones de todo tipo. El departamento es INCREÍBLE! Súper cómodo, amplio y muy limpio. La ubicación es Perfecta!!! A metros del Puente Rialto. La cocina muy bien equipada... Francesco nos dejó todo para el desayuno, te, mermelada, pan, tostadas, yogurt, varios tipos de café... GRACIAS!!!!! El departamento está en el primer piso por escalera pero no no genera ningún inconveniente. Realmente es muy grato viajar y sentirse tan cómodos. Lo recomendaremos a nuestros amigos y cuando volvamos estaremos ahí de seguro. Gracias!!!!!

unbelievably amazing

Our experience started well before our trip when we were sent a packet of information on restaurants, taxis, maps and other recommendations to help prepare us for our holiday in Venice. Francesco met us when we arrived which was prior to check in. He helped us with our bag and we stored them in a safe entry area. He then not only gave us a recommendation for a restaurant, not only called ahead for reservations but personally walked us over to the restaurant pointing out various sites along the way. By the time we were finished our meal the room was ready and our bags were already moved into the room. The apartment was nicer than the pictures and the location was amazing! We had a clear view of the stairs to the Rialto bridge from our window. The apartment was immaculate. Francesco had juice, water and beer in the refrigerator and bread, jams and coffee for us as well for our stay. There was a binder left on the table with all the information for restaurants, transportation and other miscellaneous things to assist us. The air conditioning worked very well. As far as noise, although you can here the general noise of the street below it never got too loud or crazy and we were able to sleep well. For lighter sleepers ear plugs were left on the night stands. Overall the apartment was very spacious. If we are fortunate enough to return to Venice we will stay here again. In the mean time I am hoping to send my cousin here in October. Thanks!

Beautiful place with an AMAZING host! We had an excellent experience! Francesco met us by the water taxi stop, helped us carry our luggage to the apartment where he gave us a tour of his place, took his time to show us on the map where everything is and gave us tips on how to move around. He also called and made dinner reservations for us at one of the local restaurants and the food and ambiance was amazing!! On the second day of our stay, my youngest daughter got sick and he offered his help and showed me the way to the closest pharmacy. I would definitely stay here again and I am recommending his place to all my friends and family and also to any of you who are reading these reviews. Thank you again Francesco and Raquele for hosting us at your beautiful place!! Best wishes always, Lilian

I'd stay longer!

Francesco and Rachelle were very helpful, and available during our stay in Venice. Testa d'Oro is set up very accommodating, including the ear plugs in the main bedroom, and all the little amenities that made it feel like home. The location, cleanliness and friendly accommodating attitude of your hosts, make dealing with a little noise from the busy Rialto Bridge area worth it. It's central location allow you to go anywhere in Venice in a 10-15 minute walk, other than the small islands which require a water taxi. We had a wonderful time, and just wished we had a little more time to stay. - The Gusman Family

Very responsive and attentive

The apartment is absolutely lovely and gorgeous. The pictures actually don't do it's justice - it is more beautiful in reality, very specious. It was 4 of us and we had a lot of room. The bathroom and kitchen amenities were great and it had everything we needed. Rachele and Francesco are incredible hosts. They're the nicest and kindest people, very responsive and attentive to any of our needs and questions including making the restaurant reservations for us, helping with directions etc. The apartment as well as having Rachele and Francisco as are hosts truly exceeded our expectations and made our time in Venice a great, magical and unforgettable. I highly recommend.

everything in Francesco's house was perfect of perfect. Francesco was really really kind. he waited and took us the house to let me know the way to approach easily house well. And the condition of house was very clean and comfortable. It was a unforgettable experience to stay Airbnb in Venice like my house. If I go to Venice again, i really wanna stay here again. 한국분들을 위한 한국어 리뷰! 진짜 위치 좋아요. 리알토다리 근처여서 창문열면 바로 보입니다. 밤에 당송 싱끙럽깅능 한데, 음식도 직접 해먹고 침대도 너무 푹신하고 좋아서 잠도 잘 잤어요!

Great communication

Francesco's place is in an ideal location. Just steps from the Rialto bridge and his place has everything you could possibly need. He even provided ear plugs in case we needed them. (We didn't!) He was great with communication both before and after our stay. Highly recommend!
