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.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2005
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
We had a wonderful stay, the location was perfect and we appreciate all that was done for us. The greeter got us front row seats for the Regatta Storico, alerted us to a concert the night before that told the story of the Regatta, and gave us many restaurant tips that were very good. What more can you ask for?
We had a great time at this apartment and would rent it again. It was light and airy with a large bath and living room area. The kitchen was adequate. The bedroom, while down a short set of stairs, could be really dark if you close the skylight which made for great sleeping conditions. The view from the balcony and the dining room table while somewhat limited still provided good views of the Grand Canal. Evelyn was very helpful in showing us the apartment. The location right down from the San Barnabas plaza is superb. There are many good restaurants within short walking distance including Lucanda Montin, an Anthony Bourdain recommendation. We loved sitting at the window of Osteria Al Pugni by the Bridge of Punches with a bottle of wine to people watch. They have great little sandwiches and it was right by the fruit and vegetable boat as well. The vaporettto stop was 40 feet away for visiting other areas of Venice but The Academia bridge was walkable leading to Plaza San Marco and you can walk to the Rialto, passing many shops and more restaurants on the way and we are in our late 60s. We have been to Venice several times and we liked this apartment and the location very much.
There is something special about this place. Light, airy, play of light reflected off the canal onto the ceiling. We really learned to love this Dorsoduro area. Not as jammed as across the Grand Canal, pleasant to stroll across the Campo San Barnaba. Apartment was comfortable. Service excellent.
Best part was the location and the convenience and helpfulness of the greeter. All great. Apartment very quiet - and delightfully on a canal. Clean and had everything you would want. An odd layout - but it works -- very cool to be in such a historic building in such an amazing city. We were three people (20 something daughter) - she slept easily on the couch. Bedroom was comfortable. Internet worked well - we were out a lot - only used the kitchen for coffee in the am. So not much else to add to this review. Would have preferred not to have to left cash for a security deposit (only place in Italy that required that). But at the end OK.
This place is conveniently located near a vaporreto stop (water bus). Also very near to shops and dinning. The stay here was perfect, the place had handy books to help us communicate and lots of maps to guide us. Cute little balcony with view of the grand canal. We loved our stay here.
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.
