Lovely apartment. Great location. Well equipped. Excellent communication and information from the owner.
The apartment is ideal for a couple. It is in a lovely area, within walking distance of all attractions, and has a water stop within 150 metres, if you need transport.
There is a well stocked food store 100 metres from the apartment and there are numerous restaurants within close proximity.
Lovely roof terrace with views to the Guidecca Canal.
There are a number of stairs leading to the apartment. I only mention this if you have mobility issues.
I would highly recommend this apartment.
Warm and comfortable and ideally situated.
We stayed at this appartment for 5 nights over New Year.
Having arrived from Florence by train we took a water taxi to the appartment which I highly recommend as it is the only way to arrive: breath taking!
The appartment is very well located, with easy access to water buses , Conad supermarket, restaurants and within easy walking distance to all key sights in Venice. There are stairs upto the appartment, which are narrow in places, but this was not an issue for us, as it meant the appartment was high above the rooftops with great views of the city.
We were met by Mara on arrival who was very welcoming and so helpful.
The appartment was well presented with light decor and furnishings.The double bed (not king size) was comfortable with good quality linen, and the bedroom had plenty of storage space.
The kitchen was well equipped, but we were surprised there was no microwave.
As it was winter when we visited we did not enjoy the benefit of the roof top terrace which provided an additional dining /relaxing area for warmer nights, and very private. A washing machine is also located on the roof terrace which was greatly appreciated by us, although there was no evidence of a drying rack within the appartment only an external line out of one of the window, which , with the wintery conditions, made drying a little difficult.
Despite the cold weather the appartment was very warm and peaceful.
Yes yes yes!
Lovely apartment and excellent locale!!! Quiet, well appointed spot near water buses, steps from great grocery store, easy walking to major sights, good eateries. Great communication with owner, Helen, and Mara was tremendously gracious letting us in late. Only complaint for a late October visit was the mosquitos. Would highly recommend to friends.
Great place great location
We loved the convenient location. Home was clean and everything worked. Highly recommend.
An ideal location for our singing course on Dorsodura
A lovely little flat in a most convenient location, close to the Giudecca canal and the water bus, as well as to a well-stocked supermarket. Calm and quiet at night and lovely to sit out in the evenings on the roof terrace - too hot to sit up there in the daytime in August. The lounge is spacious and nicely furnished, the other rooms are all small, the kitchen particularly so, but quite adequate for cooking simple meals. No microwave or dishwasher. We would certainly recommend this flat and stay again if the occasion arose.
We have just spent three nights in this lovely apartment, and it wasn't long enough. The location is great: quiet, but not too quiet, within easy walking distance of Accademia and close to vaporetti stops. Its proximity to a good supermarket makes self-catering extremely easy.
It's a wonderful base and very, very comfortable. We particularly appreciated the range of guides and books and DVDs, nearly all Venice related. (On our outward journey we discovered that we had both read - many years ago - 'Miss Garnet's Angel'. How lovely to discover there were two copies on the bookshelf and that the church in the novel is just around the corner!) Bedding, towels, furnishings, kitchen equipment, artwork on the walls - all lovely. The best aspect of the flat, however, has to be the roof terrace. It's very special. We had breakfast up there; we had evening drinks up there, and we returned mid-day for a brief pause from our explorations. Views of canals, sunsets, flowers, swallows, bells and the scent of jasmine... It doesn't get much better than this!
I can't think of why I would choose to stay anywhere else in Venice.
Our apartment is located in the Dorsoduro area of Venice beside The Zattere. The nearest waterbus stop is San Basilio which is 1 minute walk away. Piazzale Roma (bus station) and Venice train station are 20 minutes walk or 15 minutes by the No. 2 waterbus. St Marks square is 20 minutes walk and the Accademia is only 10 minutes with the Peggy Gugenheim just close by as well. There are many restaurants nearby along the Zattere, our favourite being the Ristorante Riviera is just 1 minute outside the flat. 10 minutes walk is the lively Campo Santa Margherita where there are many restaurants and bars as well as daily fruit and vegetable stalls and some excellent fish stalls. Conveniently there is an excellent and well stocked supermarket called Billa just 1 minute walk away. Beside the supermarket there is a post office and also cash machine.
