Our three apartments are in the famous antique Molino Stucky, a charming 18th century flour mill that has just been rebuilt as Venice's premier residence. In fact, we share our island with the world famous Cipriani Hotel. Our apartments were just recently totally renovated and furnished, and were just placed into service in the last two years. They are all bright, comfortable and quiet (with special double glazed windows) and are available all year.
Two of the apartments are large adjoining one-bedroom units with terrazzo floors, beautifully situated on the fifth floor, that comfortably sleep four adults (there is a convertible couch in the living room). (The apartments may be combined into a three bedroom two bathroom suite.) The spacious bedrooms have queen sized matrimonial beds with night tables, double closets, dresser, writing desk & chair, and a separate bench for suitcases. The red marble bathrooms all have oversize bathtubs with shower, toilet, bidet, and a washing machine and dryer for your clothes.
The third and most luxurious apartment is a large two-bedroom two bathroom unit with parquet floors and high wooden beam ceilings that comfortably sleeps six adults (again, there is a convertible couch in the living room). The two bathrooms (one green marble, one red marble) each have oversize bathtubs with shower, toilet and bidet; the master bathroom has two large pedestal sinks and a washing machine and dryer for your clothes.
Each apartment has central air conditioning and heat that you may directly control through a thermostat in the living room.
Cooking is a nice way to save money when traveling with a large family, and we try to make it as easy as possible. Our kitchens are fully equipped, including all pots, pans, silverware, glasses and dishes that you could possibly need. All this and a dishwasher to clean up with after your meals. We have also provided color TVs and stereos with CD players in all units, as well as irons and ironing boards. Each apartment is also provided with its own mobile phone.
Finally, when renting a private home in Venice, always be careful to ask if there is an elevator. The great majority of Venetian buildings have no elevator because the Landmarks Ministry (the "Belle Arte") forbids their installation in antique buildings. As a result, bringing a family with luggage up several flights of stairs can present quite a problem. This has been solved in our building by the installation of two fully automatic elevators for your convenience.
Each apartment is sunny and bright, and has a different, stunning water or mountain view. All three apartments are non-smoking, and family owned and operated. In short, we have remodeled and furnished these apartments to our own high standards because I am a mother and my kids spend about three months a year occupying them.

Lloyd and Jane,
We just wanted to send you a great big "thanks" for a wonderful time in Venice. Your recommendations were great for dining, and our time in Venice was romantic, educational, and a lot of fun! Your apartment was everything we expected ... and more ... right down to the Italian coffee maker (we had to ask the housekeeper how it worked, and we had a lot of fun with sign language since she didn't understand English). The view was spectacular!
We acclimated to the vaparetto system (and train/bus system in Italy overall) very quickly and further confirmed that the U.S. is very much behind in efficient public transportation (though we already knew that), and that Venice WAS QUITE IMPRESSIVE).
Jeff & I wanted to let you know that the left shower curtain anchor was comnig down off the wall. We pointed it out to the housekeeper the first morning we were there when she came by to use the dryer, but she didn't seem to understand what we were trying to tell her. We thought you should know so it can be fixed for the next renters before it totally comes down and pulls the plaster off of the wall. Everything else was absolutely perfect ... what a lovely apartment! I have to say, we were in Rome, Florence, Assisi, Venice, Siena, San G., etc., but Venice was the highllight of our trip (Kathy speaking).
With Sincere Appreciation,
Kathy & Jeff

Hi Kathy -
Thank you for the lovely letter. We really do enjoy helping folks put together a memorable time in Venice, and letters like yours are the 'icing on the cake'!
Jane is returning from Venice tomorrow, so I am sure you will find everything in order and to your liking.
Have a great time!
