Guestbook comments from the manager

We were thrilled that one of your agents met us on arrival, showed us the important things about the apartment, told us about where to find a grocery store, good restaurants, etc., and even booked our taxi for the airport for our departure. Your services were so helpful. Also, we used the book about the apartment and Venice in general so many times during our stay. The apartment itself was absolutely perfect for our group of six. We loved being in Dorsoduro and spent a lot of time wandering around this lovely area. We fell in love with Venice, and we will definitely be back and staying with you again. Thank you so much!

Lovely apartment in quiet, convenient neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

Our family of five fit comfortably in this apartment. We appreciated the services provided by Views on Venice, which organized our transportation from the airport at arrival and to the train station for departure. A VOV representative met us upon our arrival and provided helpful information about the apartment and the Dorsoduro neighborhood, which we loved. Restaurants and a good grocery store were a few minutes' walk away. The Peggy Guggenheim collection was also very close. We chose to walk to St. Mark's, which was 15 - 20 minutes on foot. The water taxi is convenient for anyone who doesn't want to walk. Our only complaint was the A/C. It was more than 90 degrees fahrenheit while we were there, and only one bedroom had AC. Our sons ended up sleeping in the living room, which also had AC. There was one fan provided, but it kept going out, perhaps because it was tripping the fuse.

Beautiful Venice apartment in gorgeous Dorsoduro

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this property was perfect! From booking and communication with the management company to cleanliness, amenities and location - it really couldn't have been better for our family of 6. Located close to public transport and with a beautiful view of two intersecting canals, the apartment features spacious bedrooms, clean and well appointed bathrooms and kitchen and everything you need to feel at home in Venice. Our family would go back to Venice in a heartbeat and wouldn't feel the need to look at any other rental company or apartment!

My wife and I hosted my sister and her two daughters here and we were extremely comfortable. We were very happy with the apartment. We have been staying with Views on Venice every year since 2005. Their service is excellent.

Great stay in splendid location and flat.

Service provided was excellent from start to finish including assistance with transfers and arranging a tour guide at very short notice.

Very helpful. Highly responsive without any delays. Many thanks for making it easy for us, from pre-booking and during the stay.

Highly recommended.

Excellent position

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was clean and comfortable in an excellent position, with good communication during the booking process. There is a knack to using the key - make sure you ask about it. Also I have deducted one star because the outer doorbell did not work, so the first of us to arrive didn't know the others who came later were ringing the bell, unable to get in.

Car: not necessary

A warm and welcoming apartment, directly overlooking one of the most-photographed and charming locations in Dorsoduro - the historic and very characterful Squero di San Trovaso (founded in the 17th Century and the oldest of only a tiny handful of working gondola boatyards still left in Venice today, where skilled local artisans continue to craft, maintain and repair gondolas by hand using century old methods).

One of our most popular properties - consistently well-reviewed by happy guests for both the quality of its accommodation and its superb position. Close to the Accademia Bridge/Academy of Fine Arts on the Grand Canal and within seconds of the Zattere promenade with its memorable panorama across to the island of Giudecca.
