Venice Airbnb review
March 9 – 18, 20
We weren’t happy about having to move out of our original flat in Venice due to a lack of dependable WI-FI (which is critical for us as digital nomads). That is, until we got to Martina’s flat, at which point we became incredibly grateful to get to live in that beautiful neighborhood, which had a Disneyland Main Street vibe, but for real.
We felt like we were old friends with Martina from the moment we met her and that was before she walked us upstairs to introduce us to our home for a week. The flat itself is spacious with an actual hallway between the kitchen and living room (which includes a sofa bed, so this could act as a comfortable two bedroom place). It was sparkling clean and well-stocked. Martina went out and bought fresh fruit for us, with very little notice we were coming.
Her recommendations were spot-on, and she even took us on a private tour of Lido because Clay wanted to run there.
As lovely as CA’ Martina is, the neighborhood is even lovelier. We found Basego almost immediately, which wasn’t hard since it was less than 10 feet from our door. We loved the food, music, atmosphere, but most of all, the people there. This cicchetti and wine bar became a great place to work when we needed to escape our kitchen table office. There’s also a delicious bakery across the street, a wine bar next door, all kinds of stores down the way, and easy access to Basilica San Marco, Doge’s Palace and multiple water bus stations. When we go back, we’ll absolutely stay at CA’ Martina again.
