Delightful 'new' Apartment Overlooking An Historic Squero

Bedrooms 2
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 1 - 5 nights


About the property

Perfect With Wireless Internet Connection, Air-conditioning In All Rooms

'Practically perfect in every way!' - a truly scrumptious canal side retreat, newly decked out and just right for four, directly overlooking one of the most-photographed and charming locations in Dorsoduro - the historic Squero di San Trovaso (founded in the 17th Century and the oldest of only a tiny handful of working gondola boatyards still left in Venice today, where skilled local artisans continue to craft, maintain and repair gondolas by hand using century old methods).

Little sister apartment to the larger 3 bedroom Ca' Dello Squero and Ca' Dello Squero 2 in the same building but with a different entrance, Ca' Del Rio has so many plusses we're entirely smitten!

Enviably positioned on the mezzanine floor and with eye-line views over the Church of San Trovaso and to the junction of the Rio dei Ognissanti and the Rio de San Trovaso canals, the apartment has a main entrance hallway leading on one side into an elegant living/dining room where two windows look onto the water and where the attractive sheen of burnished white Marmorino walls works like a charm in highlighting the warmth and cosiness of its exposed beams and polished wooden flooring.

On the opposite side of the hallway is a well thought out kitchen/breakfast room seating four, newly fitted and fully equipped with dishwasher and all necessary appliances. The two bedrooms are matching in their stylishly co-ordinated furnishings, beams and wooden flooring - a master with double bed and canal views to the front and a second bedroom with twins beds just to the rear - while the re-modelled bathroom in between is modern, tiled and has a shower.

Adding to the long list of things we like are wireless internet connection, air-conditioning in all rooms (except the bathroom) and a washing machine - everything, in fact, to make your stay a superior one!


A delightful 'new' apartment with excellent facilities in a truly privileged position - unhesitatingly recommended!

Close to the well-known ‘Cantinone Gia Schiavi - Al Bottegon’, a traditional gathering spot for spritz and ‘cicheti’, ‘Lo Squero’, one of the best gelateria in the city and 'Locanda Montin', one of Venice's most famous restaurants. A simple stroll along the stunning Zattere waterfront to a well-stocked Billa supermarket and some great dining options, including the accomplished cooking of ‘Ristorante Riviera’ and the chic over-water terrace of ‘Lineadombra’ or, for something simpler, ‘Ae Oche’ with its mind-boggling variety of eat-in or takeaway pizza, all set beside the unforgettable surroundings of the Giudecca Canal.

Convenient for two vaporetto stops for easy travel around the city - the ‘Zattere’ to the south and ‘Accademia’ to the north and only one minute to the Alilaguna boat stop connecting the Zattere to Venice's Marco Polo Airport.

About Annalisa & Daniela

Views on Venice was founded in the late 1990's when the concept of short term apartment rentals was in its infancy and rarely considered an option by most visitors to the city. As a ‘thirty-something' Venetian excited by the new business and communication opportunities offered by the internet, I decided to link up with a close childhood friend in creating a partnership which, at the time, was a novelty in Venice.

The idea we had in mind was to approach the traditional management of my family's apartments from an entirely different angle, while at the same time resisting the attentions of those wanting to transform my family's palazzo into a prestigious hotel.

Our aim was to offer these apartments, as well as those of friends, for rental to an international clientele who'd take pleasure in the comfort, freedom and authenticity of ‘living at home as a Venetian' rather than merely observing the city from the confines of an anonymous hotel room or suite.

The common denominator then, as now, was to offer ‘something extra' amidst an already extraordinary city - an added dimension which turns a ‘stay' into an ‘experience' and a 'dream' into 'reality'...

Guestbook comments from the manager

It is so convenient to 2 well serviced vaparetto stops (you can catch quick lines at these stops which mean more direct routes with less stops) called Zaterre and Academia. Lovely bars with great wine and chicetti just a 2 minute walk away, icecream at La Squero and Nicos and nearby cafes and snack bars. All at your doorstep. The Billa supermarket is a short stroll away and a shopping trolley is even provided in the apartment so you do n't even have to have to carry your groceries if you decide to cook in. If you don't want to use the vaparetto it's easy to navigate by walking anywhere, St Marks Square is walkable in about 20 minutes and the same to the train station and Ple Roma. A top location to stay at and a very comfortable apartment.

Wonderful Stay in Venice!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a 3 night stay for 4 people at The Ca D'Oro house in August 2017. Christina met us at the Zaterre Vaporetto stop and walked us to the apartment and explained all the features like internet, operating the washer and appliances. The apartment was spotless and looked just like the photos on Air BnB. The location was excellent, right on a quiet canal and 25 minute walk to St Marks square or 10 minutes on the boat. The neighborhood was nice and felt safe. We used the kitchen daily and it was well equipped with all the necessities like dishes and pots/pans. There were even items provided like detergent for laundry, oil, vinegar and spices. Views on Venice also helped arrange a private boat taxito go to the airport which was convenient for our family and we highly recommend you do this too. I would highly recommend this property!

Perect location, spotless apart, fantastic staff!

  • 5 of 5

The clean and well furnished apart was only a 30 sec walk to the Zattere, yet tucked around a corner and very quiet, on two canals. Each room had a/c units, including the hall. Grocery store a few minutes away and vaporetto stop a one minute walk. Staff was superb and immediately available by phone or text. We would stay there again for sure.

come sentirsi veneziani

  • 5 of 5

alloggio sito in posizione strategica, nel cuore di Venezia. Arredamento moderno pulito e funzionale. Meglio Ca' Rossini 2 ,occupato in un precedente soggiorno ad ottobre 2015, per quanto riguarda la luminosità unico neo tante rampe di scale. Locali di ogni tipo a portata di mano. Il posto migliore per godersi una vacanza a Venezia e sentirsi integrati nella vita della città

A magical experience -when can we come back?

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was great. Well proportioned, comfortable and perfectly located overlooking a quiet square and canal in a nice part of Venice slightly off the beaten track. The 4 of us (2 adults and kids 10 and 7) loved it and found Views on Venice helpful, professional and friendly.

Dorsoduro Is the Place to Be!

  • 5 of 5

You will adore this apartment and all it's amenities. It is quietly situated on a lovely canal within 5 minutes of the Academia Bridge, one of only three that cross the Grand Canal. Our agent, Christina, was fantastic. She met us when our water taxi pulled up, directed us to all important points of interest, was extremely professional. You will not be disappointed, we will return to this apartment on our next visit. Thank you!
