Overview

Dorsoduro House Rental Photos and Description

On a quiet calle close to Campo Santa Margherita. Aircon and Central Heating

The house is on two levels with an open plan lounge, dining and kitchen area on the ground floor. This opens onto a private courtyard which can be used for al fresco dining, maybe a glass of Prosecco before dinner or just enjoying Venice outdoors. There are two matching sofas in the lounge area, one of which converts into a double sofa bed. There is a separate bathroom with wash basin and WC.

Upstairs there are two bedrooms, one with double bed, the other with twin beds. There is a bathroom with shower, bidet and WC. The house has been renovated recently with attractive cherry wood flooring. All of the beds, sofas, garden furniture and kitchen equipment are brand new.

The house is located in picturesque Dorsoduro, just off the Campo Santa Margherita. It is an easy 5 minute walk to Piazzale Roma and the railway station. Despite experiencing more of the 'real Venice', access to the main tourist attractions, such as San Marco, is easy and fast, giving the best of both worlds

There is a flat screen TV and DVD player with a selection of DVDs available. Please feel free to bring your own DVDs if you want to watch these at the house. Similarly, there is a CD player and radio for your use. The house has it's own WiFi connection.

About Josh Herlihy

We love Italy and as we move towards retirement, we wanted to spend as much time as we can in one of our favourite countries. Venice has always captivated and intrigued. Each time we visit, there is something new to see and experience. The place itelf is simply amazing1

Josh Herlihy purchased this house in 2006

Why Josh Herlihy chose Venice city center

Easy! Starting with Venice, then Dorsoduro which in our view is the best of the 6 'sestiers' of Venice in terms of being 'Real Venice', the bars and restaurants, the architecture and the convenient links to transport, particularly Piazzale Roma buses, taxis and the magical St Lucia railway station.

What makes this house unique

The private courtyard was the clincher for us. We spent 18 months finding the right property. My friend and Estate Agent, Andrea, called me one day to say, he knew he had found the special place that we had been looking for. He was right!

Excellent. well equiped. excellent communication with owner. very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Accomodation was excellent, very well equipped with frige freezer and washing machine. Air con was very welcome, dont think could have coped without it in the hot weather of August. Great to have a very comfortable bed and the fact it was King size made it more comfortable given the hot conditions. Also the sofas were v comfortable and the bed sofa great too. It was lovely to have the cool, shady patio to sit in after strolling aroun venice in the heat. Josh the owver was very prompt and efficient with communication and the Irene who arranged to meet on arrival was also very reliable, efficient and helpful. Very convenient, in a lovely quieter area, by a small canal. A great stay.

Comfortable, quiet apartment in great area with fabulous private terrace

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed staying in this Dorseduro apartment. It was my first time to Venice so it was lovely to escape the crowds when I went home after a day of sightseeing. There were some great wine bars and restaurants in the local area where you could sit right next to the canal. The vaporetto stop was only a five minute walk away.

The apartment had all mod cons and the extra toilet was handy. I must also comment on how wonderfully comfortable the beds were. We loved sitting on our spacious terrace of an evening having gin and tonics!

Perfect space, location and service! !

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 4 friends and this was ideal! It was a fantastic location, quiet but close to everything. The house and furnishings were terrific - 1/2 way through a 2 week Italy trip it was a nice break from hotels and B&Bs, nice to be able to do laundry. The owner and Venice manager were so easy to communicate with and responsive and offered helpful tips and directions. We will absolutely return next time we are in Venice!

Great location with lovely outdoor space

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay. The apartment had everything we needed for a family of four and was in a great location to visit the delights of Venice at the quieter times of the day. Plenty of places to eat nearby and a lovely courtyard for nights in.

Great Spot in Dorsoduro

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed Ca' dei Guardini! My husband and I lived in Venice many years ago and wanted to stay in Dorsoduro, where we had spent most of our time. This was our first time bringing our children to Italy. The apartment was well located, clean and quite comfortable. It was nice to have two bedrooms. Irene and Giulia from the rental company made our check-in so easy, despite a flight delay. They also brought us our bag the airline lost two days later to our door. We did not cook in the apartment, but the kitchen seemed well equipped. And, we did not use the garden because it was really rainy while we were there. However, we wish we had - it is charming. It is away from the tourist crowds. All of the restaurant suggestions we utilized were spot on. Venice is so magical and staying in Ca' dei Guardini made us feel like locals again.

The Veneto has all year round attractions from the winter skiing in the Dolomites to the hot and balmy days of summer. Venice is the ideal base from which to explore the region, served by excellent road, rail and maritime links. Nearby are the attractions of the Eugenean Hills, The Veneto wine country, historic cities of Padua, Vicenza, Verona and Trieste. In the middle of all this is the jewel that is Venice, La Serenissima.

Twelve million visitors a year, can't be all wrong, Venice is the most magical city on earth. Whether you want to visit the major tourist attractions or just wander the streets and canals getting lost along the way, there are so many ways of visiting the city. If you’ve already been to St. Marks and fed the pigeons, maybe you are looking to experience a more authentic, less touristy side of Venice?

Dorsoduro is known as the hipper “sestier”, less crowded, but still packed with history and culture, with beautiful churches as well as great bars and restaurants
