Casa Cafiero - Santa Croce, Venezia
average rating of 5.0 based on 15 reviews


  • 5 of 5

Staying at this beautiful home of Daniela in the perfect location of Santa Croce was the highlight of our Venice trip. Sitting out on the balcony, watching the people in the piazza below and the gondolas in the canals beside the home really were magical moments. The upstairs master bedroom, which overlooks the private courtyard, meant that every morning our day began with the beauty of Venice at our fingertips. We loved feeling more like a local than a tourist. We traveled with friends who stayed at a hotel near St. Mark's. Their days and nights were filled with tourists and the hustle and bustle of such. Our evenings were spent getting a gelato around the corner and meandering back to the beautiful home to sit outside and watch the moonlight glisten off the canal. Daniela could not have been more wonderful as our host. She is an amazing person and we feel so fortunate to have stayed in her home. This was our first experience with HomeAway and we could not have been happier!

This place is amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Although the house is only a few hundred feet from the Grand Canal and two minutes from what water buses, it is very quiet. We gave it a 5 star rating but would give 6 stars if the rating allowed it. The hostess, Daniela was very gracious and helpful. The house is simply stunning. The furnishings are elegant and tasteful. The house is very spacious and well appointed. All the convenience is of home. Grocery stores, pastry shops and numerous good restaurants are within a five minute walk from the house. Watching gondolas on the small side canal, while having breakfast or taking the aperitif in the private courtyard, definitely add to the charm. We throughly enjoyed our stay and hope to come back in the future.

Casa Suprema! Best rental in 5 in Italy!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! This is a great house to rent in Venice on a picturesque canal with gondolas floating by ! :) Nice balconies too! We had the entire 2 story house to ourselves so we had lots of room, comfortable furniture, and everything we wanted/needed. The kitchen was well equipped too. It was the best rental out of the 5 we rented in Italy! The owner, Vittorio, was very nice and very accommodating to allow us to check in early after our overnight flight from the US and our daughter & friend to check in even earlier since they arrived before us via train, so they were able to start their laundry. He even met them at the train to walk with them to the house. He was also kind enough to get us the groceries we needed and a birthday cake as we were celebrating my husband's birthday. We reimbursed him after our arrival. The house was immaculately clean and each room had a/c. There were even big bars of wonderful, Italian, lavender soap to enjoy using! Since we were there in July, there are LOTS of tourists enjoying Venice, like us, so it was nice staying a short distance from the mobs of people, but, still an easy walk to main tourist destinations. I would highly recommend this rental! Heartfelt thanks Vittorio! :)

Best home in Venice

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this home was nothing less than wonderful. We could not have stayed at a better place during our vacation in Venice. From booking, to getting us there was great. We even asked if we could come a day early and they made accommodations to meet us a day early. On arrival we were greeted by the owners mother with h'orderves and sparkling wine. This was extremely needed after all of our travels. The greeting we were given was very thoughtful and she went out of her way to answer all of our questions and give us suggestions. The house is even more beautiful than the pictures. It was truly an amazing vacation home. If you are wondering where to stay in Venice then this is it. Do not look any further because you will not find a nicer home right on a canal. We spent several evenings on the patio before dinner ...... Just perfect!!!

This was the vacation of a lifetime...

  • 5 of 5

This has been my first time renting any property, let alone from the VRBO. I was planning a trip for my wife's 50th birthday and wanted to make it truly spectacular and something that could never be forgotten.

When I read the reviews by the others that have stayed in Casa Cafiero, I thought it was too good to be true; but after experiencing it for ourselves it is an understatement to say that Vittorio and Daniella made this an amazing and memorable event for my family.

Vittorio was fantastic, answering all of my questions and putting all of my worries and concerns to bed before we had even finalized our trip. Everything was taken into consideration... from directions on how to make our way from the airport to the villa, to recommendations of local establishments. Once we arrived, Daniella met us at the vaporetto (water bus station) and walked us to the villa. She proceeded to welcome us and make certain that we were familiar and comfortable with all of the amenities that Casa Cafiero had to offer.

Daniella and Vittorio checked in with us enough to make certain that there were no problems.

If Daniella and Vittoria will allow us... we look forward to returning for even a longer stay.

Venice Beauty

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at Casa Cafiero for five nights at the end of June. Vittorio and Daniela are wonderful hosts. The property is beautiful and situated on a small canal. (Took water taxi from airport, stop is right in front of casa.) The location was perfect for us as in the past we've done the San Marco area and really wanted to enjoy the peace of the Santa Croce area -- but be in walking distance to all of the sights. The pictures on the website do not do it justice. We were two couples and had more than enough room to spread out and relax. Kitchen is fully stocked with all hardware necessary. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony with a glass of Prosecco before dinner and the men enjoyed their cigars in the court yard after the meal. The casa was very clean -- beds comfortable, plenty of hot water, and not a speck of dust to be found. Furnishings are beautiful and you can tell that the casa is decorated with loving care.

There is a grocery store right near by as well as several restaurants which are far from the touristy type you will find in the more hectic areas of Venice -- absolutely delicious Italian fare. It was a perfect get a way for the four of us and the hospitality could not be beat. All in all, we would definitely stay at Casa Cafiero on our next trip to Venice and highly recommend a stay there.

Our sincere thanks to Vitorrio and Daniela for all of their kindness and most importantly, for the lovely chilled Prosecco we found waiting for us upon arrival! Bravo Casa Cafiero!
