ITALY PERFECT VENICE MARINO APARTMENT
Welcome to a light-filled apartment overlooking a small canal with a view also of the Grand Canal of Venice. The Dorsoduro neighborhood is central Venice but away from the throngs of visitors around famous places like St Mark's piazza.
“The apartment has plenty of space. We enjoyed having breakfasts and a lunch on the balcony with views of activity on the canals.”
Two large windows and French doors in the living/dining room bring in lots of light. A small balcony is up two steps; it overlooks Ca' Rezzonico palace, a small canal and across the neighboring rooftop, the Grand Canal.
“The apartment has lots of space, good lighting, is well equipped, is comfortable for sitting, has a little balcony (up 4 steps) with a peek at the Grand Canal.”
Enjoy your private view of the Ca' Rezzonico palace with its collection of sculpted heads above and below each window. The daily rhythm of the city can be traced by the sights and sounds of Venice observed from your apartment. Church bells across the city toll the daylight hours. A few boats pass below your balcony and windows, their type changes with the time of the day.
An L-shaped sofa is a comfy spot and can easily seat three. The sofa opens to form a double sized bed. Truly beautiful woods are featured in the parquet floor, bookshelves and dining table. A flat-panel TV with satellite reception brings in a few English-language stations.
“The apartment was lovely, very comfortable, and had everything we needed and then some.”
The kitchen and bedroom are down six steps from the living/dining room. Small but efficient, the kitchen really has everything you need for real cooking, if you wish. Four burner gas stove, oven, under-counter refrigerator with small freezer compartment, dishwasher and washing machine. There is an Italian coffee maker and a French press. The pots and pans are plentiful as well as cooking utensils. Dishes and serving pieces are in an armoire near the dining table.
The bedroom and the kitchen are under the eves. The ceiling on the far side of the bed is almost 6 feet. The bed consists of joined single beds, so slightly wider than a North American queen. At the far side, there are built in closets. Also in the bedroom is an armoire and a small desk. A sky light can be opened/closed and a sliding panel can eliminate sunlight.
“The beds including the sofa bed is comfortable and the bedding and linen very adequate.”
Across the living room from the kitchen/bedroom steps is a large bathroom. The large window has the usual palace view. There is a large tub with shower, toilet, bidet and sink. The drying rack for laundry and iron and ironing board are also stowed here.
The Dorsoduro neighborhood is real Venice. Sure, plenty of tourists as there have been for millenia, but also all the locals who shop for their veggies around the corner at the greengrocer's boat docked at the Campo San Barnaba, sip their beverages in the Bar Ai Artisti in the Campo and buy their groceries at the Billa market with its views across the Giudecca canal. Wonderful is the slight separation from the really busy San Marco and Castello districts but they are still in easy reach. You can cross the Grand Canal at the end of the calle (walking street) on the traghetto (ferry) or walk 5 minutes one way to the Accademia bridge or 10 minutes the other direction to the Rialto bridge. Riding the water-busses is easy, one stops at the same place as the traghetto, Ca' Rezzonico, or the walk to the Piazzale Roma for a car park or the train station takes only 15 minutes.
“There is a waterbus stop just seconds from the apartment - no cars anywhere, just the gondolas below going past the apartment!”

The price includes booking fee, credit card fee, greeting fee, keyholder fee, WiFi/internet, final cleaning, linens, towels, and a generous 10 Kwh/day utility allowance (that guests seldom exceed).

Check in is normally from 5-8pm. To guarantee check in before 5pm or to check out after 10am, you may reserve the night before or the night after your stay, if available, for ½ the nightly price calculated against the price for the number of nights you are staying in the property. Sometimes, if the housekeeper is in the apartment cleaning when you reach Venice, then you may be able to arrive and leave your luggage. This possibility is a day to day situation, so when you call your greeter from your point of arrival, then she'll tell you if you can go to drop your bags. If not possible, there are convenient locations to check luggage described in the Venice information we provide. Check in between 8-10pm requires €50 paid in cash to greeter.

We cannot guarantee you will be able to check in early or check out late if you do not reserve these extra nights.
