Welcome to a light-filled apartment overlooking a small canal with a view also of the Grand Canal of Venice. The Dorsoduro neighborhood is central Venice but away from the throngs of visitors around famous places like St Mark's piazza.

Two large windows and French doors in the living/dining room bring in lots of light. A small balcony is up two steps; it overlooks Ca' Rezzonico palace, a small canal and across the neighboring rooftop, the Grand Canal.

Enjoy your private view of the Ca' Rezzonico palace with its collection of sculpted heads above and below each window. The daily rhythm of the city can be traced by the sights and sounds of Venice observed from your apartment. Church bells across the city toll the daylight hours. A few boats pass below your balcony and windows, their type changes with the time of the day.

An L-shaped sofa is a comfy spot and can easily seat three. The sofa opens to form a double sized bed. Truly beautiful woods are featured in the parquet floor, bookshelves and dining table. A flat-panel TV with satellite reception brings in a few English-language stations.

The kitchen and bedroom are down six steps from the living/dining room. Small but efficient, the kitchen really has everything you need for real cooking, if you wish. Four burner gas stove, oven, under-counter refrigerator with small freezer compartment, dishwasher and washing machine. There is an Italian coffee maker and a French press. The pots and pans are plentiful as well as cooking utensils. Dishes and serving pieces are in an armoire near the dining table.

The bedroom and the kitchen are under the eves. The ceiling on the far side of the bed is almost 6 feet. The bed consists of joined single beds, so slightly wider than a North American queen. At the far side, there are built in closets. Also in the bedroom is an armoire and a small desk. A sky light can be opened/closed and a sliding panel can eliminate sunlight.

Across the living room from the kitchen/bedroom steps is a large bathroom. The large window has the usual palace view. There is a large tub with shower, toilet, bidet and sink. The drying rack for laundry and iron and ironing board are also stowed here.

The Dorsoduro neighborhood is real Venice. Sure, plenty of tourists as there have been for millenia, but also all the locals who shop for their veggies around the corner at the greengrocer's boat docked at the Campo San Barnaba, sip their beverages in the Bar Ai Artisti in the Campo and buy their groceries at the Billa market with its views across the Giudecca canal. Wonderful is the slight separation from the really busy San Marco and Castello districts but they are still in easy reach. You can cross the Grand Canal at the end of the calle (walking street) on the traghetto (ferry) or walk 5 minutes one way to the Accademia bridge or 10 minutes the other direction to the Rialto bridge. Riding the water-busses is easy, one stops at the same place as the traghetto, Ca' Rezzonico, or the walk to the Piazzale Roma for a car park or the train station takes only 15 minutes.

Guestbook comments from the owner
This was the perfect spot to explore Venice and the apartment is bigger and nicer than appears in the photos. The apartment is well equipped with all you would need for an extended stay. Although the water taxi stop is less than 5 minutes walk to the apartment and very convenient getting from and to the airport, we found walking and exploring most of Venice wonderful and very doable. We used the water taxi for a day trip to Murano. Our host was very helpful and directions as to use of the apartment and local interest was much appreciated. I would recommend this apartment to all. Thank you

YOU'LL LOVE THIS APARTMENT

You'll love this apartment
  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent seven magical nights in this apartment. The door to the apartment complex is a mere 30 footsteps from the Grand Canal, and the main windows look across a narrow side canal to the imposing and romantic Ca 'Rezzonico Palazzo. I don't think you could find a better location. There are still locals living in the Dorsoduro area, and you will see them (always well dressed) walking to the local shops or going to school. We spoke several times to a man walking his Belgian Shepherd dog, as we were going to our favourite café to enjoy a quick cup of coffee each morning. The "Marino" apartment is as described. You'll love it - you'll view Campanile di San Marco, Venice's tallest bell tower from the balcony, the vaporetto (ferries) travelling along the Grand Canal and tiny boats negotiating the narrow side canal. All the contents of the apartment are of good quality - the furniture, flooring, art works, dinner set, cutlery, etc. The only thing I would add is a large mirror - there's already one in the bathroom, but another would be helpful.

ATTRACTIVE CONVENIENTLY LOCATED APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
Marino is a very attractive, airy, light apartment with a partial view of beautiful canals. It is very well located next to the Vaporetto, it is fully updated, with a very nice bathroom, large living/ dining area, a small kitchen, and small bedroom. It is very well maintained. I would definitely wish to return to this rental.

WONDERFUL VENICE APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
The Marino apartment became our temporary home away from home. Location, furnishings, view all great. Greeter Evelyn was most helpful too. We'd love to stay in this apartment again! This was the first of three Italy Perfect apartments we stayed in, happy with all!

PERFECT STAY

  • 5 of 5
The apartment is, as others have said, bigger than the pictures appear to show. The area of Dorsoduro is perfect for those who want to be away from the tourist traps, but within easy reach of all that Venice offers. Evelyn, the greeter, did a fantastic job and everything was taken care of. Recommend unreservedly.

CHARMING VIEW, EXCELLENT LOCATION

  • 4 of 5
We loved our stay in Venice and really enjoyed the apartment. The location is so convenient to the vaporetto, and there are a multitude of excellent restaurants and cafes nearby. The apartment is within walking distance of a large grocery store and close to the grocery boat. There was an excellent Leonardo da Vinci exhibit nearby when we stayed. It was easy to access the major tourist attractions and shopping. The apartment is nicely decorated and furnished with everything you need. The balcony was a real joy to sit on in the evening and watch the canal traffic while sipping a glass of wine. The drawbacks to the apartment are when it is really hot out, the air conditioning does not reach the bedroom so you must sleep on the convertable sofa in the living room and electricity is an extra fee. The extra fee for electricity is stated in the rental contract. It is impossible to leave the skylights open at night because there are no screens and the apartment fills with mosquitos. Also, the part of the kitchen that is under the eaves means if you want to do any laundry you have to get on your hands and knees to load the washing machine. We were charged a 75 euro late arrival fee even after several phone calls to the greeter about the timing of our arrival which was around 8:30 p.m.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay in this excellent location. We are happy the apartment and little balcony were enjoyable. Just to clarify on the electricity, the rent includes a baseline amount of electricity; you pay over that amount and, yes, when running a/c you can go over. That is normal in Italy where electricity is the most expensive in Europe, as explained in the documentation we provided. There is a fan to help move the a/c to the bedroom, but we agree being in the living room will be the coolest place when it is quite hot. So sorry you had to pay for a late arrival. It was organized for 6pm as you requested in the arrival information you completed, so the greeter put that time aside for you. Having waited 2.5 hours and having gone past the 5-8pm usual check in time, the late fee was due as in the terms. And, sorry for the mosquitoes. It is a fact of life everywhere in Italy and there are no screens anywhere in Italy. There is a mosquito repellant appliance in the apartment for guests to use. There is a rather complete explanation of this situation in the documentation provided.
