Sarah Sun Island

Category:  B&B (moored yacht).

Location: On the island of La Giudecca, across from the San Basilio cruise pier. Closest Alilaguna Airport Boat stop: Giudecca.

Convenient when:

You'd like to cruise from Venice without leaving the pier.

Sarah Sun Island is a bed-and-breakfast on board a yacht--the Sarah Sun--that is permanently moored at a dock on Sacco Fisola, a small island next to La Giudecca that has its own ACTV waterbus stop.

(For all practical purposes, Sacco Fisola is part of Giudecca;  it's attached to the larger island by a small bridge, and you can reach both the Alilaguna airport boat's landing by the Hilton Molino Stucky on foot.)

Like its upscale hotel neighbor, the Sarah Sun requires a short boat ride to reach Venice's historic center, and its cabins are smaller than the rooms you'd find in a typical hotel or guesthouse. Still, if you're the sort of person who spends a lot of time in a cabin cruiser and dreams of living on a millionaire's yacht, the Sarah Sun Island could offer a pleasant break from the world of landlubbers--especially during Venice's busy months from spring through early fall.

Aerial photos:

  • In the first image, the island of Sacco Fisola is in the lower left corner of the frame, with the larger island of La Giudecca connected to it by a bridge. The San Basilio cruise terminal is directly across the Giudecca ship canal. (Look for the long building with the pink tiled roof alongside the water.)

  • In the second photo, you can see the yacht Sarah Sun moored on  Sacco Fisola (the island at lower left). The ACTV vaporetto stop is to the left, outside of the frame. The building at lower right with the rooftop pool and green copper-sheathed cupola is the Hilton Molino Stucky.
