This 'apartment' is really an independent house (dates from the 17th century), with separate entrance. Its exterior and interior were recently restored, with care taken to conserve its original characteristics. The home is sited in a corner of Campo San Barnaba, one of the most suggestive and picturesque place of Venice, in the artist quarter, near Accademia.
Our apartment is really one minute from the vaporetto stop of Cà Rezzonico (sited in the 'centre' of Canal Grande in front of Palazzo Grassi, near the Accademia bridge), from which you can reach both Rialto and San Marco in around five minutes. The quarter offers cultural activities and characteristic spots that also stay open late in the evening. At the same time, it is a tranquil and relaxing place, without the usual bustle of tourists.
The house, very nice as I told above, and well lighted, consists of two floors. The first floor includes the entrance, the kitchen/dining area and a bathroom with shower. The second floor offers a living room with a comfortable double bed sofa and television with a satellite connection and a master sleeping room (with one double bed and one single small for child, so there are five bed places). The house has an independent heating system for winter and an air conditioning system for summer.
The kitchen is well equipped with new appliance: gas stove, a large refrigerator, a microwave oven and grill, dishwasher, and washing machine. In the living room and in the bedroom there are two large closet, a work desk.
The house has it's own telephone and an ADSL (high speed) internet line with a Wi-fi router.

Great location, clean, cool, very well equity!
Antonio showed us the way to the property & from there it was so easy to navigate all around Venice! The apt was perfect for 3 people- felt safe & secure, loads of cafes & grocery, etc, right in the adjacent squares. Would stay again!
Ideal location for exploring Venice
A quieter part of Venice with less tourists than San Marco , the property is ideally located within easy reach of the water bus, but walking is no problem to Rialto bridge or St Marks square just don't forget to take a map! The property has air conditioning so was ideal to pop back to now and again to cool down. A useful range of cooking appliances and utensils, so self catering not a problem. A Conad supermarket is only a short walk away with excellent prices and a good range of food. This property is ideal for a couple with the option of a sofa to make into another bed. The only thing missing was a few wine glasses! Antonio met us at the water bus and took us to the property and was very helpful ,an excellent host. To summarise a quaint Venetian property in a good location,highly recommended.
Delighted first time vacation renters
Our gracious host Antonio and his team have created a comfortable apartment in a terrific location. All the neccesities are provided. Groceries, cafe's, wine bars, and excellent restaurants are within several blocks. Many artists have their studios here so the shopping for locally made goods is wonderful. No hesitation in recommending this rental.
Recommended small apartment in Dorsoduro
The location of this apartment is fabulous. As others have said, it's minutes away from Ca' Rezzonico vaporetto stop, within easy walking distance of most everything, near a lively campo yet still quiet. Communication from Mirco was clear and responsive, the apartment was as advertised, and it was equipped with many attentive details. The man who met us at the boat was very nice, but didn't know too much about the neighborhood. However, if you look in the information booklet in the apartment, you'll find suggestions for restaurants, bakeries, grocery store, etc. provided by the owner.
Charming Apartment in Excellent Location
My husband and I traveled to Venice for our honeymoon, and were looking for a centrally located apartment for our home base. The apartment is wonderfully located, just steps away from the Campo San Barnaba, about a 2 minute walk to the Ca' Rezzonico vaporetto stop, and 10 minutes to the Accademia Bridge. While close to many restaurants and shops, the apartment is quiet because it is tucked down a small alley.
We were met at the vaporetto stop by a nice woman named Elena, and escorted to the apartment. She did a great job explaining how things worked, and where they could be found. We felt the property was very much as advertised. The kitchen was well if sparsely furnished for cooking, and had everything we needed for making breakfasts and lunches.
Our only complaint about the apartment was that in order to make a king-sized bed they pushed together two twin-sized bed frames. We have stayed at hotels where this was done before, but usually the mattresses are secured together in such a way that they do not separate. Unfortunately, in this case the mattresses would work themselves apart, and if we wanted to hold each other during the night, one of us ended up sleeping in the crack. Perhaps a mattress topper with a snugly fitting mattress pad could solve the problem?
Oh, and to address a recent previous review I read about bed bugs. There are not bed bugs, the linens were very clean. There are mosquitoes. Although we were there the first week in November, it hadn't yet been cold enough to freeze them. For those that do not know the history of Venice, it is built upon an estuary, or marsh. Therefor it is to be expected that when you stay in a place without window screens, like this one, there will be the occasional mosquito. We each received a couple of bites on our exposed bits while sleeping, but nothing a little cortizone cream didn't fix.
Overall, we had a very nice stay, and would recommend the property to others.
