A wonderful cool and spacious property

  • 5 of 5

Lovely apartment in a quite location with views over the canal. Spotlessly clean and well equipped. We appreciated the time Marco spent with us on arrival explaining the location and places to visit. Restaurant Pane Vino e San Daniele close by was a huge hit, the proprietors were helpful and hospitable and the food excellent so we visited 3 times! Would definitely recommend this Dorsoduro apartment to friends as long as they can manage the 72 stairs.The Armenian Monastery on San Lazarro island via the vaporetti was an unusual and informative trip away from the crowds. Dorsoduro is a lovely quiet part of Venice with plenty of atmosphere with the main sights within walking distance.

Waterview, Dorsoduro, Venezia

  • 4 of 5

A comfortable 3 bed, 2 bath apartment in a quiet but convenient location in Dorsoduro. It was easy to walk everywhere from the apartment, which was well equipped.

Located on the 4th floor, it enjoys good views over the rooftops. However, access is by stairs only.

Owner's Response: Dear guest, we are pleased you loved the flat, however, the fact that the access is only by stairs is clearly stated in the advert and description. There was no surprise there. Kind Regards Marco Malafante

Room with a view !

  • 4 of 5

Although located in a quiet residential area of Venice it was only a short walk to all the popular sights and water bus stop to take you further afield. From start to finish the Red House Company was easy to deal with and provided excellent customer service. In the past we have stayed in budget hotels or bed and breakfast but this was home away from home and just as described on the Web Site.The small supermarket a few yards away was excellent value for money and staff were friendly. The only negative was the stairs up to the forth floor but the views were worth it .You could treat yourself to an ice cream ( or two ) knowing you would work it off climbing the stairs but something to be considered if less mobile.Would not hesitate to recommend this company to friends and family

Thank you for a wonderful visit and hope to be back again soon

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in July for 5 nts. We found this apt to be perfectly adequate and the pictures were very accurate. The living area is slightly changed around with the dining, but definitely for the better. The area is quiet but not too far away from the centre, there is a decent supermarket about 1min walk and a very good one less than 10min walk. A few good cafés are about 5 min away. Very safe and clean. Lots of stairs, but as long as you are prepared that won't be a problem. The gentleman that met us at the apt was very helpful, especially with our luggage. The apt was very clean and bedrooms were huge! The academia bridge was our favorite, and Venice is just a magical place, feels like you're on the set of a movie. We would highly recommend a stay at the WaterView! Thanks so much for having us!!

Great Apt. Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We were (3) couples staying in this apt for 4 nights in May 2014. Absolutely loved it! Easily accessible from the airport and only a 10 minute walk to the water taxi's. Beautiful views, quiet area and very comfortable and updated accommodations. I especially appreciated their flexibility with arrival/departure times and the fact that the apt came equipped w/ sample supplies, spices, coffee, etc, which we didn't get at other apts we've stayed at. We all agreed we would stay here again, if and when we return to Venice!

Dorsoduro is one of the more peaceful neighborhoods in Venice but still within walking distance of the main areas, Piazza San Marco is less than a 20 minute walk.

Just behind the apartment is the‘Zattere’ where lies a long waterfront promenade with restaurants, bars and icecream shops. The promenade leads up to the Basilica della Salute and Punta della Dogana where you can visit the recently opened modern Art Museum , perfect for an evening stroll.

The famous Accademia gallery and bridgeare also within easy reach as is the Peggy Guggenheim collection.

A 10 minute walk will take you to theCa’Rezzonico museum, la scuola grande di San Rocco, the church of SanSebastiano and the Basilica dei Frari, home to some of the works of one of the Veneto’s most celebrated painters, Tiziano.

Waterbuses serve as Venice’s main public transport and there is a waterbus stop near to the apartment, allowing you to get around easily.

Piazzale Roma, the main point of arrival into Venice, is few mins
