This is a lovely, spacious apartment in a great Venice neighborhood with good security and a cool automatic door that opens right on a canal. I really wish I could give a great review, however, the apartment was infested with flies. They were small, slow, dark brown flies (drain flies?) and easy to kill, but we shouldn't have had to encounter this problem. We contacted the number provided via text and were told in a responding text that maintenance wasn't open until the next morning and that we should call them. We instead sent an e-mail instead to the maintenance mailbox that was provided on our paperwork since we didn't have phone service, only wifi, and there was zero response! So we shared the apartment with the flies for 3 nights. We swatted and killed as many as we could, but still there were more. They were drawn to light, so you could not use your phone with the lights off or they would dive bomb the phone - GROSS! We never even had the windows open and could see previously squished bodies on the walls. It is unacceptable to rent an apartment with this problem and even more so to ignore guests' complaints!
