Both bedrooms are bright and airy with comfortable beds and have plenty of hanging/storage space in the bespoke wardrobes. Bedroom 1 has a luxurious double bed with fine linens and traditional Venetian fabrics. Bedroom 2 has two single beds. Both bathrooms are fully tiled with power showers.

The kitchen has been hand built and features dining for 6.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We returned to Cologne after 3 wonderful days in Venice and we are sure, that we will return some time or other.



During our first stay in Venice years ago, we checked in in a hotel near Piazza San Marco - very expensive, very loud and without any atmosphere.



What a difference. Ca 'Leonessa is a luxurious flat in a wonderful part of the city - and very near to the Canale Grande and the other places of interest.



The meeting with the local guide was uncomplicated.



In the past we have rented flats in several cities (Barcelona, Rome, Vienna); but I can express, that we never had such a comfortable and well-positioned flat.



So I can recommend your flat one hundred percent to all my friends who will plan a visit to Venice.

The real Venice!

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this apartment. The location was fantastic, very close to a Vaporetta stop. Many restaurants and markets within walking distance. The amenities abound here. You can tell at a glance that a lot of thought and hard work has gone into making this a class A property. Very easy to reach this apartment. Bus to Piazza Roma then Vaporetta to Ca Rezzonica. Doesn't get much easier. Many thanks to the Owner for his high standards.

Perfect location, Quiet Sleep, Real Venice

  • 4 of 5
When Venice is hot and busy, but this apartment is cool and peaceful. The pictures don't reveal how much space there is, and what a perfect location. Beds and baths are great (although the beds in back were used by younger children) and the kitchen is very nice. It is quiet. Security is strong -- doors and windows. You can walk here in 12 minutes from P. Roma (less time than a boat) and walk to Rio S. Trovaso is perhaps 10 minutes: delightful sites are nearby. The owner is rapid in response to emails and shares his phone number -- organization was simple and fine. The condition of the living room and amenities such as wi-fi are top rate. We had complexities with our meet/greet resource (they asked us to wait three hours), power went out (the switch is at the bottom of the stairs, not in the unit) and with our check-out (maid brought next tenants and their luggage in 1/2 hour before we left…). So -- owner, condition and location: 5 stars. Local organization: 1-2 stars. But we'd go back, and have already recommended it to friends. If you want Venice with local flavor and without the tourist crush, this is top choice. While you're here frequent the bakery just around the corner: Majer. The Punto food store at the entrance to P. S. Margarita (and upstairs cheese) is full service. Guggenheim is an oasis just up the street. Choose this one and enjoy.

BOOK IT IF YOU CAN!

  • 5 of 5
We had such a great time here. I spent TONS of time researching all of our accommodation for our Europe trip, and I was so happy with my choice here! It was in a very safe area, relatively quiet at night. Lots of shops and stores nearby, and the fruit gondola right out front. The BEST gelato place nearby (Grom) and a grocery store was about a block away as well. The apartment itself suited us well. The 2 bedrooms were nice to have, and the living room was spacious and comfortable. Loved the views of the canal out the window. The kitchen was cute, the laundry area a little cramped, but who cares about that, we just loved having a washer/dryer! Booking was easy and straightforward. I would definitely stay here again, if we returned to Venice! If you are lucky enough to find it open on the dates you are coming, BOOK IT! You'd be crazy not to.

Great location in venice

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this apartment for 4 days, 3nights. It was perfectly located with a direct view to a canal. There were many shops all around the apartment and a nice café just in front as well as a vegetable barge. The apartment itself is composed of two bedrooms, a full equiped kitchen and a nice living room all furnished with whatever one can need. It was a perfect stay that we strongly recommand.

Amazing Venice!

  • 5 of 5
Wow, this place was perfect. Truly amazing. Plenty of room for our family of 4. It was great to have a washer and drying rack, as well as AC. Besides how great the inside was, the location was perfect. It was literally around the corner from Campo Santa Margerita, which had tons of restaurants and bars. The kids played soccer out in the Campo while we sat and had a drink. I highly recommend staying in Dorsodoro, easy to walk or vaporetto to everything - and out of the crowds! We spent the first evening just in Dorsoduro and I didn't really Venice was even crowded! This place was truly perfect, I loved walking right out to a canal. Book this one now before someone steals your dates!

If you are wavering over booking this apartment, then my advice is waver no more. I have just completed my second trip to this delightful property and enjoyed it as much as the last. Jon, the owner, has maintained the same high standards and we had a great week. the apartment is easy to find, three minutes from Ca'Rezzonico vaporetto stop, and everything you need is within easy walking distance. Including supermarket, fruit & veg boat, numerous restaurants and bars. Jon is more than helpful and replied promptly to any e-mails. We will definitely be staying here again.

Your first glimpse of Venice, the pearl of the Adriatic, is of a magnificent vision of a city rising from the waters of the lagoon. The unique light has fascinated artists and travellers for centuries. As perhaps the greatest trading state Venice has absorbed different cultures like no other City. Its unrivalled blend of cultures is evidenced in the truly magnificent array of architectural styles from Byzantine through to Renaissance elegance and even the neo Fascist architecture of the railway station.

The Grand Canal runs through the centre of the city with its numerous smaller canals and 400 plus bridges link the city and its succession of palazzi.

From the first refugees arriving to the rise of the great Venetian empire of the 13th century and the later Napoleonic invasion, Venice has it all.
