Overview

Cannaregio Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 1/2 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2 max 3)

The house: Remodeled part of 16th century monastery with central heating, in the heart of Cannaregio, near Ca'D'oro and Santi Apostoli, between Strada Nuova and Fondamenta Nuove. Central Location: on foot 5 min. to the Rialto Bridge and 12min. to San Marco. Very quiet and safe!

Until Fall 2011 there have been CANAL WORKS next to our house which have COME TO FINAL COMPLETION! They have removed all the scaffolding and now you can enjoy the beautiful and peaceful view without any obstacle. ADSL and WIFI work very well and you will appreciate the flexible design lamps to read in bed, a new mattress and a new TV set with a large LCD screen with satellite decoder and plenty of international channels.

The apartment is on the 2nd floor (in Europe 1st floor) with very easy flight of stairs.

Each room is independent and you access them all through 5 doors in the entrance: the main bedroom has a kingsize bed and 3 windows, the living room has 2 sofas and 3 windows on canal, sit-in kitchen with window on canal, bathroom with window, air conditioning and central heating. You do not need to pass through any room to access the kitchen and the bathroom.

We rent our lovely, bright (total of nine windows), quiet, and comfortable flat for weekly stays all year round, usually from Saturday to Saturday to 2 people only.

You can experience Venice like a real Venetian and have a unique, charming approach to this wonderful city which is still very lively and human. The perfect central location just off the tourist track, the view from the many windows overlooking the Canal San Andrea (see photos from the different three living room windows), the wooden beam ceilings in the living room and in the kitchen, the charming main bedroom, the functional bathroom with cabin shower and washing machine, and the elegant furniture make it a special place. What used to be a small second bedroom is only for private use when we are there.

In 2008 we added air conditioning to offer refreshment during hot summers. For those who don't like it we have very good fans and if you keep the shutters closed when you are away the apartment keeps cool anyway.

Local shopping is great. We suggest you take the gondola ferry 'Traghetto Santa Sofia' 2 min. for a few cents to the Rialto Fish and Vegetable Market where you can buy the best fresh food in town, also recomended a BILLA supermarket at San Felice, 3 min. away, open all day seven days a week and the best typical restaurants happen to be nearby.

The neighborhood is very lively, safe and central. In two minutes you can reach the nearest boat station Ca' D'Oro (nine min.boat ride to the train station and 12min. to Piazzale Roma-link to the mainland and airport) and just one minute from the flat you can find the best and most typical venetian 'cicchetti' at local Baccari and restaurants nearby. From the near Fondamenta Nuove you take the boats to the Airport, to the wonderful Islands of Torcello, Murano e Burano and to the famous Lido with the glamorous hotels and beaches(Visconti's Death in Venice, Film Festival, etc.).

Usually no pets. The flat is on the second floor (Europe first floor) therefore even if there is no lift you just have to walk up only 16 comfortable steps . Smoking is NOT allowed inside! Please take a walk if you cannot resist.

Note: We rent it WEEKLY in the frame Saturday to Saturday. It is our second home, we and our friends and family are also often there on holiday, and this helps keeping the apartment always in its best efficiency as we keep improving it and doing repairs during our several stays all year round. Rates during Carnival, Easter, New Year's Eve, Biennale and peak weeks are higher. Discounts are offered for longer stays (two weeks or longer) especially in the low season. Special last-minute offers may be available to fill open dates.

For those who fear ACQUA ALTA: do not worry, it is a tide, not a flood, and as it comes in our street for a few centimeters it also goes away. San Marco is one of the lowest area, Strada Nuova is pretty free of 'acqua alta'. We monitor the tides and keep you informed when it is higher than usual. We provide a choice of brand new rubber boots so that you can explore and have fun and experience something unique. It is not a danger for tourists. It is hard and sad for the people and shops on the ground floor.

The city of Venice is doing major works in all canals to improve the ecology and the solidity.

We kindly ask our guests when back home to write a comment in the vrbo guest book. Most tell us on the phone or by email how charming and comfortable it is but we would like also other potential guests to read it. Thank you!

We can talk on the phone about details, but please first write an email with your landline and we are happy to call you back. If we publish our phone we are flooded by calls from other websites offering us their service.

Elisa and Hans purchased this apartment in 1979

Why Elisa and Hans chose Cannaregio

Our area (Ca' d' Oro - Santi Apostoli) is one of the most TRUE part of central Venice, very central and close to all the tourist destinations but at the same time safe, quiet and human.

What makes this apartment unique

Staying in our apartment in the very heart of the old center allows you to experience this unique city like a real Venetian with all comforts you need for a memorable holiday.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Elisa,

we wish to tell you how much we appreciate your apartment in Venice. We just returned from our second three week stay and look forward to another three weeks in 2011. We find your place to be well equipped and comfortable. The location suits us very well since Cannaregio area is very convenient to the Rialto market for food shopping renowned world wide and far enough from the heavy tourist areas to be comfortable.

Quiet comfort in the bustle.

Venice is a tourist mecca. If you try to visit the iconic locations in this city, you will invariably get lost, rub a lot of elbows, encounter vendors charming and occasionally obnoxious, and eat a variety of foods of marvellous and dubious quality. We had six such days, but it was a comfort to know that no matter what the day brought, we had a quiet, comfortable, well equipped apartment to return to. It was close to a market used by the locals, close to good coffee bars, a delicious pizzeria, and the vaporetto. In the evening, a walk along the almost deserted pathways and bridges yielded some of my favourite time exposures of reflections on small canals. We would return to this location when we return to Venice. Elisa was helpful and made herself available.

Ideal Location

My husband and I stayed for one week and enjoyed every minute! Perfect location, 5 minute walk to the Vaporetto stop to go everywhere in Venice. Quiet, residential area and yes, right on a canal! Lovely homey decor, comfortable bed and couch. Kitchen is perfectly equipped and great size for two. Across the Grand Canal from the Rialto Market for fresh fish and produce. Shops, restaurants and gelato within 5 minutes. Also a 10 minute walk to the lagoon for boat trips to Burano (we loved it) and Murano. Washing machine a real plus and we actually hung our laundry to dry outside! Air conditioner worked great. TV in bedroom only but we were so busy we never turned it on. Fabulous week in Venice, you really can walk everywhere from this apartment or take the convenient Vaporetto.

A Month wasn't long enough!

A Month wasn't long enough!

My husband and I just spent a wonderful month (Mid Feb. to Mid March) in this charming flat which felt like home as soon as we walked into it. Fresh, clean, well equipped, comfortable (great bed!), quiet yet close to all amenities; it has all the "mod cons" we required AND wonderful character. The property was just as described and the photos provided were accurate ...but the reality is even better. When you can open the windows and enjoy the fresh air and birdsong. When we arrived, at midday the place had just undergone a thorough cleaning and Elisa was in touch by phone immediately. Her maps and instructions helped us find our flat easily. Because of our plans, we couldn't meet her in person, as she would have liked, but she was always available on the phone and ready to answer questions. Midway through our stay Carmela came in to clean and change the sheets. We spend many happy days exploring the highlights and backwaters of the city as well as getting out to historic cities of the Veneto. Trenitalia offers good service at reasonable prices. We went as far as Trieste one day; always looking forward to getting "home" at night. We'd highly recommend this property and our excellent hosts to any friend or relative going to Venice. Moreover, with such comfortable digs, I'd recommend Venice as a great base for exploring Northwestern Italy. The dozen stairs may not suit some handicapped people but Venice itself is something of a challenge to those in wheelchairs. Also, it may be too comfortable for "adventure seekers"! We look forward to staying at Hans' and Elisa's properties again.

Perfect location in Venice

  • 4 of 5
We were greeted late on a Saturday night at the Ca d'Oro ferry stop by our friendly host Elisa, who gave us a terrific introduction to the area on the short walk to her apartment. There we met Hans, who was equally as welcoming. The apartment is exactly is seen in the photos, it is not large, but is well equipped, is in a very central but quiet location, excellent for a couple wanting to explore Venice. Thank you Elisa and Hans.

Owner's Response: Usually check in is much earlier, but the evening of their arrival we made an exception and were happy to be able to share with our guests an extraordinary "free late opening" of the Ca'D'Oro Palace. We believe that seeing the Grand Canal all lit at night from the incredible terraces of Ca'D'Oro will remain an emotion they'll never forget. And the classical concerts in the Palazzo on the opposite side of our canal...and the free concert in St. Mark square... Lucky for sure, but after all it was New Year's week! We thank you for your comment also in the mail which is even warmer and more generous.
In the future we'll be most happy to welcome their friends and relatives from Australia.

wonderful pied a terre

  • 5 of 5
We felt immediately at home when we entered this comfortable apartment. It is well-furnished, spacious, and spotless, with a delightful view of a quiet canal from the living room windows. Excellent food shopping and restaurants are close at hand. Virtually all of the major (and minor) Venetian sites are an easy walk from the apartment. And the great Rialto produce and seafood markets are a quick boat ride across the Grand Canal. Elisa was helpful in many ways, including offering recommendations about how to travel to the airport for a very early flight. The quality of this aparment helped make our stay in Venice both memorable and enjoyable.
