STYLISH APARTMENT WITH STUNNING PRIVATE COURTYARD IN DORSODURO

Dorsoduro House Rental Photos and Description

On a quiet calle close to Campo Santa Margherita. Aircon and Central Heating

The house is on two levels with an open plan lounge, dining and kitchen area on the ground floor. This opens onto a private courtyard which can be used for al fresco dining, maybe a glass of Prosecco before dinner or just enjoying Venice outdoors. There are two matching sofas in the lounge area, one of which converts into a double sofa bed. There is a separate bathroom with wash basin and WC.

Upstairs there are two bedrooms, one with double bed, the other with twin beds. There is a bathroom with shower, bidet and WC. The house has been renovated recently with attractive cherry wood flooring. All of the beds, sofas, garden furniture and kitchen equipment are brand new.

The house is located in picturesque Dorsoduro, just off the Campo Santa Margherita. It is an easy 5 minute walk to Piazzale Roma and the railway station. Despite experiencing more of the 'real Venice', access to the main tourist attractions, such as San Marco, is easy and fast, giving the best of both worlds

There is a flat screen TV and DVD player with a selection of DVDs available. Please feel free to bring your own DVDs if you want to watch these at the house. Similarly, there is a CD player and radio for your use. The house has it's own WiFi connection.

We love Italy and as we move towards retirement, we wanted to spend as much time as we can in one of our favourite countries. Venice has always captivated and intrigued. Each time we visit, there is something new to see and experience. The place itelf is simply amazing1

Josh Herlihy purchased this house in 2006

Easy! Starting with Venice, then Dorsoduro which in our view is the best of the 6 'sestiers' of Venice in terms of being 'Real Venice', the bars and restaurants, the architecture and the convenient links to transport, particularly Piazzale Roma buses, taxis and the magical St Lucia railway station.

The private courtyard was the clincher for us. We spent 18 months finding the right property. My friend and Estate Agent, Andrea, called me one day to say, he knew he had found the special place that we had been looking for. He was right!

WONDERFUL VENICE APARTMENT!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and our two girls, aged 11 and 8 1/2, stayed in this beautiful apartment in Venice for three nights. We were warmly greeted and settled by Sarah, who provided us with a thorough orientation to the property, and was able to answer all our questions about nearby supermarkets, markets, and restaurants (and we did go to the garden patio restaurant Sarah recommended, Il Profeta, which was a wonderful evening as well). The apartment was beautiful, with a brand new kitchen, and a beautiful outdoor patio at which we ate most of our meals. The apartment was very well equipped and gave us everything we needed for big meals and small, teapot to moka! The apartment was located in a quiet, peaceful area of Venice, but was still only a few minutes walk to all the major sites including the Giudecca Canal, where vaporetto stops and Billa (supermarket) were located. It was also very close to some lesser known but amazing local places like Campo Santa Margherita and Campo San Barnabas (a much better place to get a gondola than the busier centres). We were also able to walk to the train station, which was 15 minutes away. At the end of the street was a restaurant and bar for morning coffee. We stayed in four apartments during our Italian trip, and Josh was by far the most attentive owner. He answered all our questions thoroughly, provided great information in advance, and even arranged for our left-behind sunglasses to be sent to us. We have already told several friends about the place, and would not consider staying anywhere else on a return to Venice.

LOVELY LOCATION AND ACCOMMODATION

  • 5 of 5
This was our second time staying at Ca dei Guardiani and it was even better than last time. The great location and private courtyard are the same as before but the owner has recently installed a new kitchen, new leather sofas and redecorated. Making the arrangements before was really easy and the Property Management team made us feel really welcome when they showed us how everything worked, plus we were provided with useful recommendations on restaurants, bars, grocery shopping etc. We had a great time and can’t wait to go back!

GREAT HOUSE WITH LOVELY COURTYARD, GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
During and after booking this location the contact with Josh went very well, he was very prompt in his response and also provided us with useful practical information and some recommendations on restaurants. He has engaged a property management team from Venice that picked us up on an agreed location and brought us to the house, preventing us getting lost in the maze of Venice while dragging around our luggage and supplying us with even more practical tips.

A short walk from our waterbus stop, along one of those typical Venetian canals, brought us to the little street in which the house is located. The house is located in a lovely residential area, away from the main tourist crowds but still very Venetian and at walking distance from all main sights (if you want to prevent walking as much as possible, the waterbus stop is within a 5 minutes walking distance). The house itself was absolutely spotless when we arrived. The furniture looked brand new and it is equipped with a brand new kitchen with dishwasher, oven, microwave, etc. The house matched the description but still exceeded our expectations when we saw it in person.

We loved the courtyard where all the flowers were in full bloom when we were there. We loved having an aperitivo there after a day of exploring Venice before heading to the restaurant of choice for that evening.

Within a short walking distance from the house (5 minutes) there is a supermarket that carries all products needed (and a fabulous greengrocer that carries a lot of locally grown delicious fruit & vegetables). Also very close by is the market square Campo Santa Margeritha that has some decent restaurants and bars and where there is a relaxed atmosphere is the evening when a mix of tourists, locals and students gather at the square for dinner and drinks.

All in all, we had a fabulous stay in this house and in Venice and recommend it to anyone we know who is planning a trip to Venice and who prefers a house over a hotel.

BRILLIANT HOLIDAY BASE

  • 5 of 5
The apartment is very well equipped(dishwasher,washing machine,WiFi etc) and well situated for arrival by train or by bus from the airport. Close to a supermarket and lovely ice cream! The vaperetto also nearby. We hope to make a return visit...we have been before and the addition of a new kitchen and sofas made our stay even more enjoyable.

FANTASTIC APARTMENT - WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND

  • 5 of 5
Just got back and had the most amazing trip to Venice! This was our first visit to the city therefore naturally we were a little apprehensive of where to choose but after seeing such positive reviews on the property we went ahead and booked Ca’dei Guardiani. Josh the owner was so helpful and so prompt with all correspondence – he even provided a guide for us with directions and details on the property and general tips.

We really felt the property was in the perfect location for us – super close to transport and in a less touristy part of town with really lovely traditional bars, cafes and restaurants. We particularly liked Campo Santa Margharita – full of lovely bars and restaurants where the locals hang out and only 5mins from the apartment.

The apartment has just been renovated with a new kitchen which was very modern. The whole property is in excellent condition and very clean – we especially liked the large room sizes, power shower, large living room (with very comfy sofa’s) and stylish kitchen. If the weather had been dryer and slightly warmer we definably have used the terrace also! The Property Manager was also very pleasant on arrival and was extremely helpful and informative with everything we asked. An extra bonus for me was the internet access also.

Overall I think the property is even better than the pictures make out. The owner is extremely helpful which made booking and organising a breeze. I am looking to visit Venice again next year in the spring/summer time and will definitely choose to stay at this apartment again. I feel 100% confident to recommend this apartment to any other individual and trust that they would have the same excellent experience that we had.

The Veneto has all year round attractions from the winter skiing in the Dolomites to the hot and balmy days of summer. Venice is the ideal base from which to explore the region, served by excellent road, rail and maritime links. Nearby are the attractions of the Eugenean Hills, The Veneto wine country, historic cities of Padua, Vicenza, Verona and Trieste. In the middle of all this is the jewel that is Venice, La Serenissima.

Twelve million visitors a year, can't be all wrong, Venice is the most magical city on earth. Whether you want to visit the major tourist attractions or just wander the streets and canals getting lost along the way, there are so many ways of visiting the city. If you’ve already been to St. Marks and fed the pigeons, maybe you are looking to experience a more authentic, less touristy side of Venice?

Dorsoduro is known as the hipper “sestier”, less crowded, but still packed with history and culture, with beautiful churches as well as great bars and restaurants
