Enjoy the beautiful views of Venice as well as good Italian meals on our newly renovated Terrace !
Enjoy also life as a Venitian in this beautiful and spacious apartment (100 square meters) located in an authentic neighbourhood close to the very lively campo Santa Marguerita !
The apartment has an Art Deco style with a wooden library, decorated glass panels and iron wood starcases. It has a great living / dining room (approximately 50 m2), 2 separate bedrooms with their own bathrooms as well as three mezzanines. It is also very comfortable with its Satellite TV, Blue Ray reader and Wifi internet.
Venice is a magical city and our apartment is a very charming place to stay thanks to its tasteful Art Deco renovation and beautiful roof top terrace where you will be able to take a drink or meal with a view on the San Marco tower.
We love the neighbourhood which is away from the crowd but at the same time lively (University C'A Foscari, Campo Santa Marguerita), cultural (close to the Peggy Guggeiheim museum and the Accademia gallery) and very beautiful (we recommend highly the San Basilio / Zattere walk by the Giudecca canal which is 5 minutes from the apartment and boasts one of the best view in Venice).
The apartment is very conveniently located at a 12 minute walk from the Accademia bridge, two Vaporetto stops from the San Marco Piazza and a 10 minute walk from the Piazzale Roma road station or Ferrovia / Santa Lucia train station.

Convenient to All things Venice
The guide books tell you to stay near San Marco. DON’T.
This apartment in the Dorsoduro was perfect for four old ladies on a chick trip. Comfortable furniture, enough beds for each of us to have our own, two bathrooms, adequate kitchen and a cafe with a cute barista just down the street. It is an easy walk to three vaporetto stops including Zattere where the boat from the airport stops, two groceries, a vegetable stand and a cafe with a cute barista just down the street. There are a number of restaurants nearby but still offer a nice stroll after dinner and an opportunity to get a little lost which we tried to do daily.
The only reason I didn’t give it four stars was that there were 62 steps to the door of the apartment, the stairs inside the apartment were narrow and steep and the lock was fussy. That being said, it was made up for by the cafe with a really cute barista just down the street.
Unique, Expansive, Relaxing
This apartment is better than the pictures - and the pictures are pretty nice. First, location. It is on the west end of Dorsoduro, near the school of architecture and several other schools. This means that you are within a 15 minute walk of the bus and train stations. We left the apartment at 10 in the morning and were at the airport via the direct, 10:30 ATVO bus at 10:50. It also means that the area is not crowded and that you have easy access to lots of little, affordable bars and restaurants that are close by.
We could also walk east and be at the Peggy Guggenheim in 15 minutes. (Of course, as we were getting to know Venice, we could also get lost and see lots of other places in that period of time.) There is a Prix grocery store about 5 minutes away that has very inexpensive food - good wine is $3. If you push you can go up to a $6 bottle of really good wine. There is also a Conad store about 8 minutes away that has a more extensive selection, and a nice deli counter, prices about 10% more but still very reasonable. If for some reason you want to go to St. Mark's Square with all the folks from the tour boats, you can catch a vaporetto at the Academia and be there in 25 minutes.
Inside: lots of other reviewers have commented, but I'll add what I can. You won't find many open concept, high-ceilinged, stained-glass windowed apartments in Venice. This is one. the living room, dining room and kitchen form a big comfortable, livable space. There are four sleeping areas. On the main floor are two bedrooms, one with a king bed, the other with twin beds. But stairs in each of those bedrooms lead up to lofted sleeping areas, each with a double bed. Each is open to the bedroom below, but not to the rest of the apartment. There are two nice bathrooms, one next to each of the bedrooms. The kitchen is well-equipped. The dishwasher is a good one. A nice gas stove and a full sized refrigerator. A hotpot for tea, a large stovetop expresso coffee maker, and a microwave. We cooked in 5 out of the 6 nights we were there. Every afternoon we went up on the roof veranda, called an altana, and had a bottle of wine, some cheese and antipasto and enjoyed the view of the city as the sun set. We basically wanted to move in and stay there. Concerns for some might be: the apartment is up four flights of stairs and does not have air conditioning (few places do), and (again as with most apartments) there are no screens. Venice is magical!
Traveled for two weeks in Italy, VRBO the entire time. This apartment is a score. Two floors with the terrace shown in the picture. Sit out with a cup of coffee in the morning and you feel like you have done something right in your life to be lucky enough to be sitting on a roof top in Venice, in your own apartment!
Have Miriam, a local guide and the owner's friend, meet you to escort the first time you go to the apartment. There's a small fee but worth it and fair.
The apartment is not difficult to find but Venice is tricky the first time you go anywhere. I got a little lost the first morning I went out for coffee but everyone I asked could not have been nicer in their effort to help me find my direction. After that it was easy but I was very glad I had taken pictures as I left that morning.
This was my 5th trip to Italy, I have stayed in lots of places, this is the first place I would want if I go back to Venice
An amazing apartment in a perfect location.
Nothing but amazing. There were 4 adults and we had plenty of space and privacy. The kitchen was well equipped and the dishwasher came in handy.
The clothes washer and drying rack was also outstanding. I had fun with the clothes line just out the window on the main floor.
The rooftop terrace was also well used. Some nicer chairs and table would be a nice touch in future.
The location was perfect. Away from the maddening crowds but close enough to walk to everything.
We walked everywhere with no difficulties. Got lost a great deal but that was the fun of it.
All in all a perfect apartment. We would highly recommendation staying here.
Thanks Stephanie and Mark for being so attentive
Very nice apartment
Really nice apartment with every thing you think of or needed in the apartment. It's in a quieter area so you can get a good sleep after a busy day around Venice. A cafe and pizza takeaway right out the door. The roof terrace is brilliant for views and the sun after a long day. We really enjoyed staying here.
Appartement lumineux, spacieux et confortable. Nous avons passé un trés agréable séjour à Venise un peu à l'écart des boutiques de souvenirs et des flots de touristes.
