A beautiful corner of Dorsoduro

5 of 5
This was my third stay at Ca Dei Guardiani and each time has been a real pleasure. It's so rare to find a house to rent in Venice at such a reasonable price - and to find a place with its own garden space is nothing short of remarkable. Despite a bit of bad weather on one day, we managed to spend a good amount of time in the garden during our stay and eating out there is a real pleasure. The house is very clean, user-friendly, well maintained and well equipped - since our first visit 4 years ago a new kitchen was added as well as lovely, comfortable sofas in the lounge area. The British-based owner is helpfulness itself and the Venetian company who manage the property provide an excellent service - they contacted us prior to our visit to ensure we knew exactly what to do on arrival, kept in touch as we traveled from airport to the nearest vaporetto stop (which is only a short walk to the property) and were friendly and helpful. There are lots of cafes and restaurants nearby (there's a decent restaurant about 80 metres away from the front door) and a decent supermarket close to the vaporetto stop provides anything you might need. Venice speaks for itself - nowhere is too far away, especially if you take advantage of the vaporetto passes (good value if you make sure to use them every day). If like me you find hotels uncomfortable, dislike being forced to eat out every day (and in Venice, that can be a costly hobby) and like having a more real experience of life in Venice - I can't recommend this place highly enough.

Beautiful Location, well equipped just like home.

5 of 5
Ca' Venetia is a beautiful 2 bed apartment. There were only three of us staying but the place could have easily taken 5 as there were 3 single beds and the huge double. The place is quiet but still near enough to walk to all the attractions and there were many bars and eateries close by. We also put the well equipped kitchen through it's paces and didn't feel anything was lacking. We will be back!
