A beautiful Venetian home!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Cafiero is a beautiful freestanding home filled with lovely furnishings and beautiful artwork. The kitchen is well designed with all of the pots, pans, utinsels that one could wish for - and a cappuccino machine! Located in a quite neighborhood, it is a welcome retreat from the hectic pace of Venice sightseeing. The owners were very gracious and went out of their way to make sure that our stay was the best. We'll come back here!

Fantastic house in quiet square overlooking canal

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful property with friends. It is situated in a quiet square on a small canal with a very short walk to the vaporetta stops for the stations (bus and train) or down the Grand Canal to marvel at the palazzos, the Doge’s Palace and St Marc’s Basilica. Close by are restaurants, a supermarket, a very good bakery and a gelateria.

Daniela was there to greet us with prosecco and snacks which were very welcoming. She showed us around and explained everything we needed to know about her home. I do have to say that I was so enraptured with the opulence of the place that it went in one ear and out the other! Fortunately, there are detailed instructions for each appliance and for the disposal of waste.

The property looks deceptively small from the outside but it is anything but. There are several sitting rooms both up and downstairs and a large area downstairs which accommodates the entrance, kitchen and dining areas, laundry room and a bathroom with bath and shower. There is also a balcony which runs across the whole front of the property upstairs. Great for drinks in the evening when we returned from sightseeing.

We had the master bedroom which has a private balcony and an ensuite bathroom. The other bedroom though not ensuite has its own bathroom right next to it. The beds are comfortable with quality bedding. The bathrooms are all in marble and have bars of Italian lavender soap. Bring your own shampoo or buy from the nearby supermarket.

The property has been very sympathetically renovated. The fabulous beamed ceilings have been retained but blend well with the sleek, modern kitchen containing every convenience you could wish for. I particularly liked the luggage lift, not only that it saved us from lugging suitcases upstairs, but because it has doors in the old, typically Venetian style. Overall, there is a harmonious blend of old and new.

Each room contains original artworks and over the bed in the master bedroom is a piece of framed antique(?) lace. You can see this in the photos. Although I didn’t ask, I think it is probably from Burano which is an island famed for its lacemaking. Daniela also told us that the Fondaco dei Tedeschi is now open. This is the tall building right next to the Rialto Bridge housing an upmarket department store with a rooftop terrace giving one of the best views of Venice. Bookings have to be made online. Go and enjoy.

I highly recommend this property to anyone and would definitely stay again.

A beautiful villa!

  • 5 of 5

What a great experience! The owner Daniela met us at the train station and walked us to her gorgeous home. Once there she gave us a tour with instructions. She also had a wonderful bottle of Prosecco and a few appetizer treats waiting for us. Such a nice touch. What a gracious hostess. They even set up our water taxi ride to the airport. Which was perfectly timed. We didn’t want to leave such a lovely home and Venice. We would love to return. Daniela and her son Vittorio were wonderful. Thank you.

We hate to give this property the raving review it deserves because we want to keep it all to ourselves!

Daniela was very gracious, meeting us on arrival even though it was pouring rain, surprising us with a treat when we arrived and spending time showing us around and helping us with questions about the City. The location was great, a two minute walk to water transportation. If you use a water taxi it come's right to the door. In our situation Daniela recommended this on arrival and it was soo worth it since we arrived in the rain. We stayed in two other properties during our two weeks in Italy and this was by far the one we are looking forward to returning to. The balcony and Garden area's were a great place to retreat to. We had 4 adults and if you wanted a few minutes to yourself, no problem! We had six on the balcony watching the boats go by and having wine and appetizers so relaxing. The home had everything lots of windows, plenty of bathroom's, sitting area's and spacious bedrooms, full laundry, great kitchen(our traveling buddy (Debbie))made the best cappuccino right there, we had it all! The Property was very clean, well organized and had everything you possible could want. Our only regret was we wanted to see so much of the city we forgot to enjoy the house to the full. If you want a great location, Awesome home (because it is a home), quiet, close to everything but just far enough away to get away from all the people at the end of the day, this is the choice to make. Only two minutes away there is nice shopping, the best Canola's ever, Gelato and restaurants.

Stop spending your time looking this is the best private property just book it! You will not be disappointed. We hated to end our trip we wanted to stay in this little haven for a very long time and we will next time. Thank you Daniela for a lovely home and your kind hospitality. Debbie, Martin, Kirk and Bonita

Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

Great location on a piazza in Santa Croce away from the crowds but easily accessible to all districts within Venice. A architectural beauty filled with Venetian structural style, exquisite furnishings, arts, and fully equipped kitchen. Perfect for the cooking lover and those that prefer home or apartment living when travelling. Four people can live here comfortably with plenty of space! Truly a gem and once you discover it, no need to search further -book it and good luck with availability! Owners extremely helpful with quick response time to all of your needs and/or questions.

Beyond your expectations, a truly splendid experience

  • 5 of 5

Without sounding like every other reviewer, staying at Casa Cafiero was the best vacationing decision of my life. Like other people whose budget allows for a stay of this nature, I too have stayed at luxurious hotels and tremendous resorts, but this is in a class by itself. The sheer understated opulence and class exuded by Casa Cafiero and Daniela belies the effort required to maintain a property in this manner. Everything is of the highest quality and nothing has been forgotten. It almost seems that whatever you're looking for happens to be exactly where you expect it to be. Those who have rented other properties will know exactly what I mean. Like others, I too hesitate to write this review, knowing I will soon be unable to book this property (or afford it) as its popularity surges from the multitude of glowing reviews. However, I feel it would be a disservice to the charming and affable Daniela Magrini, whose obvious efforts in being a superlative host, and the unparalleled quality of her property, deserve recognition and praise. After all, if we don't extoll the virtues of the Daniela's of the vacation rental industry, there will be no impetus for others to raise their game. Hopefully by praising Daniela, I am creating more people like her, and ultimately more places to stay like Casa Cafiero; which in the end will benefit all those looking for a unique and unparalleled high quality residence to stay in.
