We had a very special time in Venezia. Giovanni's space is wonderful, every detail made our stay exceptionally pleasant. The area was beautiful. Giovanni is an amazing host and inspiring person. We really appreciate the immersive conversation that we had with him. Giovanni's perspective enhanced our time in a city of multiple layers and stories

Response from Giovanni:
First of all I want to thank Kenneth for his review that gives me the opportunity to reiterate the idea of this 'project' of hospitality. In the Airbnb page the first thing you read is “The apartment is like Venice, not cheap but a special experience, unique.” I am sorry that the first and so far the only guest to complain about the cost of the rooms is an architect, able to understand and appreciate the efforts that requires renovation of a house like this in a city like Venice where maintenance are continuous due to degradation caused by humidity. In the city there are accommodation and rooms at a price certainly cheaper even if with different characteristics. Just do the minimum of work, put Ikea furniture and here is a perfect room to stay the night at low cost if that's what you want. Other guests have considered affordable the balance quality/price for the complex of the offer: in addition to the double bedroom with bathroom and fully equipped (soundproof door, minibar, TV, safebox, heating and air conditioning, designer and handcrafted furniture, works of art on the walls, Murano glass lamps, etc.), there is a living room with a library in which rest and stay but not for meals (to be consumed in a cafè, a restaurant, or in the room) to prevent disturb to other guests. It's legitimate and understandable that the house will not be fully appreciated by who leave early in the morning and come back in the evening to rest, those are in need of a room where to sleep and not of a 'place' where to spend time during the Venetian stay, exchanging opinions with other guests and with the host, taking time to settle the emotions. Here you won't find only a bed, but an experience. Welcome.

Big bed, nice furnitures, well localised, in front of a vapporeto station, not so far from Saint Marco and Piazzale Roma. Thanks a lot Giovanni

Un alloggio informale e di classe, il fascino di Venezia amplificato dalla preziosa biblioteca a disposizione dei visitatori. La camera pulitisdima, tranquilla e più che confortevole. Giovanni un padrone di casa squisito, profondo conoscitore di Venezia e dei suoi segreti. Consigliatissimo.

Un vulcano a Venezia. Questo è Giovanni. Un super host che oltre ad accoglierti nel suo splendido e comodo spazio, su richiesta, ti fa da guida di Venezia. La struttura dove abbiamo soggiornato è nuova, appena ristrutturata e arredata col gusto dell'architetto, pulita e con ogni confort. Giovanni ti accoglie e ti parla d' Architettura ed Arte facendoti vivere la Città in modo differente. Se poi si sceglie di fare un giro in barca con lui le sorprese si moltiplicano e Venezia diventa ancora più affascinante. Grazie Giovanni siamo stati benissimo.

Giovanni è stato un host gentilissimo e professionale. Ci ha accolto a casa nel migliore dei modi e si è reso disponibile a darci suggerimenti interessanti su posti e luoghi da visitare a Venezia. Sicuramente qualora torneremo a Venezia torneremo da lui a Spazio Sud!

Response from Giovanni:
Stefano è un architetto, vedere il suo occhio professionale indugiare sui dettagli della casa e apprezzarli mi ha fatto piacere. Una permanenza però troppo fugace per portare la conoscenza oltre i convenevoli che tuttavia non sono stati di rito e hanno denotato una certa sintonia. Ti aspetto presto con più calma, non più passaggi veloci ma una vera sosta, così avremo modo di scambiare qualcosa di più, sono sicuro che ci sono tante cose interessanti che non ho avuto modo di sentire. Dimenticavo: ospite impeccabile!
