“Great apartment just outside Venice”
Reviewed 16 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Casa Sara is a lovely apartment located in Marghera - only twenty minutes bus ride away from Venice, and it's really easy and cheap to get into the city. The owners are really helpful and I'd definitely recommend it!

“Excellent! They really went out of their way to accommodate us.”
Reviewed 1 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Both Lia and Sara really did everything they could to help us with our stay in Venice. Lia doesn't speak English and yet she was very patient with explaining everything in a way we could understand.

The apartment is fairly large for a studio and has everything you will need. Sara has put very useful instructions around the place on everything from how the garbage system works to where to catch the bus or where to go for the best pizza.

The place is located in Maghera and it's a 25min bus ride to Venice but it's very easy to figure out and the buses come regularly. You do need to buy tickets from a tobacconist before getting on the bus (the one in Panorama centre speaks good English).

We ended up having a friend stay with us for a few nights, so they provided us with 3 of everything and extra linen for the fold out couch. Sara's parents gave us some homemade rosato, marmalade and fresh water melon, which was a very nice welcoming gesture.

The place has a kitchen, with fridge, stove and oven, and a washing machine which were very useful. We'd definitely recommend this place to anyone.

We stayed at Casa Sara for 4 nights and had a great time. Lia, Sara's mother, who lives next door, was very welcoming and immediately, we felt at home. She even picked us up from Mestre train station. The apartment was fully equipped, very clean with lots of natural light. Granted, it's not in the centre of Venice, but the bus service is frequent and cheap, Euro 1,30, tickets from a tabac. There's a local supermarket and a few restaurants in the vicinity. My wife and I would highly recomment Casa Sara for a break in Venice.

“Nice quiet apartment - all you need”
Reviewed 10 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Ah how we loved Venice. Sara the owner was great at staying in touch and giving us a lot of information on getting and staying here. She was out of town when we stayed and her lovely mother Lia, who lives next door, helped us get settled. Lia speaks only Italian but with the help of a translator app and our Italian book she communicated everything we needed to know. The unit is a studio, very secure and complete with everything you need, including a small washing machine and full kitchen, which we used and enjoyed. It gets a nice breeze through the big windows, has a good ceiling fan, and is well lit. There is no service (i.e. linens, cleaning) during your stay, but I think that's typical for a rental like this. The living room furniture (a couch) isn't great, but we didn't spend much time in there since we mainly slept there and had breakfast, otherwise out enjoying the island.
One thing that is important to know is, as the description mentions, this apartment is on the mainland in the Marghera neighborhood, not on the island of Venice. It is a nice working class neighborhood, not at the waterfront but across the bridge from the Venice most hear about and want to visit. It is a 20 minute ride there on the city bus, and you can easily walk to two bus stops. The city buses in Italy are run differently than the US in that you must buy your ticket at a store, not on the bus. In this neighborhood there is one small store nearby that sells bus passes, they do not speak English. Once we figured out how to do this and later purchased a 48 hour bus pass it went smoothly, but it took a day. You also need to time your ride back from the island correctly with the different bus lines. The buses are pretty full. As most know, driving a car around there isn't an option. If you are either familiar with Italy or traveling in Europe or a bit adventurous this setup is great, a lot cheaper than staying on the island, and a taste of how Italians live out of the tourist hubs. This room is a nice quiet oasis after a busy day in Venice!
