Lejligheden fungerede godt, og den ligger i et stille område og alligevel i gå-afstand fra alt. Dejlig tur var det.
four adults stayed here very comfortably. Kitchen was well stocked and there was a good grocery store very close. Owners arranged a water taxi for us on arrival and had maps and guide books available. Apartment was clean and is a well managed accommodation. About a 25 minute walk to Rialto Bridge. Apartment is on fourth floor so be prepared for stairs. Helps compensate for the Galatia and crepes which are in the neighbourhood. We highly recommend this property
It was a wonderful apartment to stay in with a great view of the canal. It was mostly quiet in the place (just a bit of noise from upstairs) but the kitchen had everything we needed and the bedrooms were perfect.
Updated, spacious apartment on a quiet picturesque canal
The apartment has been completed modernized including a complete kitchen and air conditioners in all rooms. The unit includes balconies overlooking a quiet canal that is heavily travelled by boats. The apartment is less than 10 minute walk to the Pizzale Roma and a major vapparto stop. Despite its central location is very quiet at night....
Sehr schönes, sauberes Appartment an ruhiger Lage. Gemütliche Essgelegenheiten (diverse Restaurants) zu Fuss in weniger als 10 Minuten erreichbar. Kleiner Supermarkt gleich um die Ecke.
8 Molto buono
Buen apartamento en una zona tranquila.
A wonderful cool and spacious property
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.
A lovely spacious apartment in a quiet area of Venice.
A delightful, airy and spacious apartment in Dorsoduro within convenient walking distance of restaurants, shops and main sights. Ii has lovely views over the canal and the area is very pleasant and a haven from the crowds.
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.
Great hosts, great apartment, great location. We took Caroline's advice and took a water taxi. It was worth the expense because we had not yet learned our way around. A gentleman from Caroline's agency met us in front of the apartment and oriented us to its amenities. The apartment is bright, clean, and comfortable. It has a lovely balcony with a view. The stairs are challenging with luggage but the younger of our party bounded up them--the rest of us were a bit out of breath by the time we reached the top. It's a trade off -- the view is worth the climb. The kitchen was well equipped. We had a couple problems and the agency was very responsive. A door blew open and we couldn't get it shut (I suspect there was a trick to it that we didn't figure out) and they came right out and fixed it. Then we inadvertently shut off the hot water and in one quick phone call, they told me how to turn it back on. We loved the location. It's more residential than touristy so it was very quiet. The major tourist attractions are within a 10 to 15 minute walk. Water busses can be found in about 10 minute walks in several different directions. We recommend the hosts and the apartment. Some might prefer a more lively location but it was perfect for us.
The apartment was as pictured. Clean, plenty of towels. My friend arrived early and they were able to meet him and show him the way. About a 15 minute walk to the Valporetto Roma stop. Lots of restaurants and cafes close. AC worked great, as it was hot when we were there.
La estancia ha sido perfecta. A la recepción nos informaron muy amable y detalladamente de que hacer y como movernos por Venecia. La casa tal y como aparece en las fotos
Fantastic for a fussy family!
Wow - what a great find this was. Spacious 3 bedroom apartment in a lovely area of Venice away from the mass of tourists but walking distance to all the big sights. Our family of 5 with 2 teenagers and 11 year old stayed here for 4 nights in very hot weather. Facilities were fabulous - well equipped kitchen, washer, good wifi, great and much needed air conditioning in living area and bedrooms, lovely balconies. Appreciated that there were basic supplies provided like washing powder, dishwasher tablets, Soap, toilet paper etc. Area in Dorsoduro was fantastic - felt like we found the real Venice as resided amongst locals but yet never more than 20 minute walk to touristy spots. Enjoyed fireworks of Festa del Redentore and watching big cruise ships from balcony. Small supermarket very close by and another one at Zattere waterfront about 8min walk away. Meet and great service was excellent as was all communication with Red House Company. We were met at train station and walked with luggage (?10 mins over about 5 bridges) to apartment - if carrying luggage is a problem would need water taxi transfer. We left by water taxi ride to airport - a fabulous experience in itself as you travel down the Grand Canal and then accross the ocean to the airport - this cost 110 Euros and was efficiently booked for us by Red House at time of check in. Be aware this is a 5th floor apartment with no lift - about 70 steps - didn't bother us. Beds were a little softer than usual hotel beds but still quite comfortable. A fantastic accomodation for families or for 2 couples to share.
Perfect Property to enjoy Venice
The property is conveniently located and is within walking distance of most of the main attractions in Venice. Also convenient for travel by Vaporetto and train. Appartment was spacious, clean and beautifully decorated and furnished. Air Con in all rooms was a blessing. Staff from the agents who we dealt with were very helpful. Would recommend to anyone wanting to ``do`` Venice. Only comment would be that there are a lot of stairs so not suitable for elderly or infirm.
The apartment was just as pictured. Its location is excellent: far enough from the crowds to be comfortable, but not so far as to make it difficult to see and do all one might want to. There are even trees to be seen out the window - a rarity in Venice. Another advantage is that a small grocery store is a few doors down the street, so it's easy to take advantage of the kitchen. It was easy to communicate with the hosts, so we never felt abandoned in the city. The hosts' agent met us at the plaza where the airport bus arrives. We turned down his suggestion to hire a porter to bring our bags to the apartment. This was a mistake. Although the apartment isn't far, there were half a dozen bridges to cross, each one involving going up and down stairs. So spend the money (for the four of us, about $40) and save yourself the anguish. Also, the apartment is on the fourth floor of a building without an elevator, so it not recommended for those lacking the ability or energy to manage all the climbing. In all, we are pleased to have stayed in the apartment and are happy to recommend it.
Room with a view !
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
We were six people visiting Venice for the first time - but definitely not the last. We were extremely happy with the apartement only a few minutes walk from Piazzale Roma and close to most of the wonderful things to be seen and experienced in Venice. When our legs got a little tired the Vaporetta was always close at hand.
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!
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!
Lovely clean quiet apartment with very comfortable beds and the added bonus of two bathrooms. In a quieter area but easily walkable to Placa Santa Margherita and to the waterbus giving access to all the well known sights of Venice.
Sehr zu empfehlen!
Lage, Aussicht, Einrichtung, Freundlichkeit und Zuverlässigkeit der Kontaktpersonen- alles super. Wir würden jederzeit wieder hier übernachten.Einzige Unannehmlichkeit, für die aber keiner etwas kann: Das Schlafen bei offenem Fenster ist wegen der Mücken nicht möglich :-(.
La situation de l'appartement est très bien, le quartier très sympathique. L'appartement est très bien équipé, propre, suffisamment spacieux. Tout était parfait
Super apartment in quiet convenient location
Four of us (two couples) recently stayed in this apartment for a week and found that it was totally as represented by The Red House Company. It is in a very quiet location but only a short distance from Piazzale Roma, the Santa Lucia train station, Campo Santa Margherita etc. The apartment is on a quiet, peaceful canal. It is well appointed and presented and walking up the stairs to the fourth floor was great exercise and helped work off some of the extra gelati. Caroline from The Red House Company met us as arranged, walked us to the apartment and then gave us lots of information about the apartment, the location of nearby restaurants and shopping facilities etc as well as organising a water taxi to take us to the airport at the end of our stay. (This is a really stress free way to make the journey if you are prepared to pay the price of €120. Also bear in mind that it is quite a long distance to the departures terminal from the water taxi landing point. You will need to pay another €15 for a shuttle or take on a long walk.) In summary, I would thoroughly recommend the Waterview Apartment and The Red House Company.
modern, very clean, very quiet flat near piazzale roma, nice view
the mail-service before our stay, the meeting at the beginning and at the end of our stay was very nice. We liked the flat, although it is not as big as it seems on internet. The location is nice, near to Piazzale Roma and the peoplemover, also one vaporetto station is not too far, a little supermarket is also very close. In one room there is no wardrobe and it is not fine to hang the clothes into the little room, because also the stuff for cleaning is there. But we would rent it again - a good choice.
Great Views! Nice roomy, light & airy 3 bedroom apartment
We were 2 couples sharing the apartment which was a light, airy 3 bedroom apartment with 2 bathrooms. Everything was supplied! It was very comfortable & quiet & private, but at the same time, so close to everything. There are wonderful views from the balcony & we enjoyed watching the cruise ships coming & going daily. As mentioned previously, the apartment is well located with many nearby restaurants & cafes & the small supermarket a few doors down is very convenient.. Due to the large number of stairs to the apartment, it wouldn't be the ideal apartment for everyone. There is no elevator, so it is necessary to carry your luggage up & down the stairs on arrival & departure. Other than that, the stairs were not a problem for us. We arrived in Venice by train & had organized with the apartment owner, Marco, to order us a water taxi to take us to the apartment as there were 4 of us, plus our luggage. This was so much easier than walking with our luggage up & down the stairs of the 2 or 3 bridges that needed to be crossed from the train station to the apartment, so we organized a water taxi to pick us up on the day of our departure, as well, & drop us back at the train station. Except for arrival & departure days, when we had luggage, we walked all around Venice. Venice is a very walkable city if you don't have any mobility issues, so bring your comfortable shoes. The Red House Company was excellent to deal with! All correspondence was dealt with quickly & efficiently. We found them to be very professional & reliable & we would definitely be happy to use them again. My only suggestion would be that on the day that we arrived, they were very busy meeting other guests that had arrived at the same time & Marco couldn't spend too much time with us explaining the nearby attractions, restaurants etc. It would have been handy to have a folder or book in the apartment with all that information. We really enjoyed our stay at The Waterview & we would love to return one day
High spec and modern apartment in great location
This apartment is beautifully laid out, very light and airy and with everything you could possibly need. All appliances were available even down to the cooking essentials which was a nice touch. With modern decor, 2 of the 3 bedrooms had good sized TVs and all had good storage / clothing space too. The air conditioning was a welcome addition as was the wifi. There is a lovely balcony overlooking the canal with lovely views across the rooftops towards bell towers and churches and you can even watch the big cruise liners coming in and out. The views are definitely worth the climb up the stairs to the 4th floor and it's a good way to keep fit! We were met by Irene (thank you so much!) and accompanied on the short walk to the apartment. This close proximity to the bus and water terminal was really useful although you wouldn't know we were so close. We were also only 5 minutes from Campo Santa Margherita which was a lovely square with lots of restaurants and a larger supermarket. Conveniently there is a smaller (but well stocked) supermarket a few 100 metres away which was great. There is also a great wine shop (take an empty plastic bottle!) in the square called Nave de Oro which is a must if you like wine.

Pining for Venezia and the Waterview....
We just got back from a fantastic holiday in Venice and staying at the Waterview Apartment made the whole experience more familiar, pleasurable and relaxing. What a lovely apartment with a pretty view of the canal, 3-4 bridges and from afar the cruise ships that seem to glide like slow-moving behemoths. The Waterview is on a quiet location and conveniently just 5 minutes from Piazalle Roma which is the gateway to Venice proper and is the drop-off/ pick-up points to the airport. There is a small grocery 2 doors away from the flat and a 10 minute walk to a larger one. A stone´s throw away is the lively Campo Santa Margherita with its restaurants, ice-cream shops, fish and vegetable market and an assortment of stores. The Zattere (behind the apartment) promenade along the water is a lovely way to spend the evening sitting in a restaurant or café while watching boats of various shapes and sizes cruise the Guidecca Canal. We enjoyed our Venice trip thoroughly and highly recommend the Waterview- a tastefully decorated, breezy, clean, well-kept, first-rate apartment, away from the maddening crowds yet near enough to all the cultural sites, restaurants and shops. We couldn´t have asked for more ….maybe a set of new feet. When in Venice….one walks (and rides waterbuses)!
Superb apartment and excellent experience
I stayed here for 4 nights with my 2 sisters. The apartment was everything we could wish for. The furnishings are excellent and everything is of very high quality. The bedrooms are spacious with comfortable beds (2 doubles and 1 twin). Pietro met us at Piazzale Roma to take us to the apartment and gave us lots of useful information including tips for restaurants and shops. He is a real asset to the company, very friendly and efficient. The area around the apartment (Dorsoduro) is an excellent spot with everything nearby. I would highly recommend both this apartment and the Red House Company who were very swift to answer any emails and dealt with any queries promptly.
Clean, elegant, spacious and quiet.
I stayed at the waterview with 3 girlfiends, and it provided us excellent space to visit or rest. The two bathrooms and kitchen are beautiful; we cooked in a few times and had everything we needed. Every room had large windows and views. The living room was comfortable but a little on the small side. It was a great place to stay.
Paisible et bien situé
Apartement bien situé pour qui désire séjourner dans un endroit paisible à proximité de tout , on se sentirait presque un vénicien. Propre et bien meublé , l'apartement a bien accomodé les 6 adultes que nous étions. L'accueuil s'est bien déroulé, nous avons été bien acceuilli et conseillé , entre autres pour les restaurants. Le Dorsoduro est un beau quartier pour qui recherche un peu de calme et ou déambuler paisiblement. Bref l'endroit a répondu à nos attentes.
The apartment was fantastic and to a very high standard. We were very impressed by all the amenities. We certainly needed the air conditioning in August. The apartment is on the fourth floor, but it helped to keep us fit! This was our second visit to the Venice and we really like the Dorsorduro area, close enough to all the the sights but far enough away to be more peaceful. We really enjoyed going to the Campo Santa Margherita and walking along the Zattere in the evening.
Staff at Red House were very helpful and even came out one evening to help sort out the Sky. The apartment was to a very high standard, we certainly needed the air conditioning in august. It is on the fourth floor, but it kept us fit. This is the second time we have stayed in the Dorsorduro area of Venice, it is close enough to all the sights but is more peaceful.
My son, mother and I had a wonderful stay in Venice and we loved the apartment and the beautiful view. Loved hearing the bells from the churches and watching the boats go by. The apartment is perfectly located in a quieter part of town but only a 5 minute walk to the hub of Piazza Roma. So it was perfectly quite at night. A grocery store was less then a minute away. The bedrooms were a perfect size and very comfortable. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything you would need. And everything was impeccably clean. As well we found the staff to be extremely friendly and very helpful when we got there by meeting us at the Piazza and then helping us with our large number of questions on how to find attractions etc. Would definitely recommend this apartment (but remember there are 4 flights of stairs!) and would rent it again if I am lucky enough to return!
We, 6 adults and a one year old kid, stayed in this apartment for one week and the apartment was excellent. The location were perfect for us. Just about 10 minutes walk from the ``city centre`` but still very quite. Just around the corner there is a supermarket and 5 minutes walk you find the best restaurants in Venice. 3 bedrooms, 2 bathroom a full equipped kitchen and dining room made this stay very comfortable for us. The property was clean and the customer service was excellent. We really recommend this property! All the best,
Ruhig und doch zentral
Das Apartment ``Waterview`` hat eine super Lage, die Angaben in der Beschreibung waren korrekt. Es ist abseits vom Massentourismus und doch zentral Auch Restaurants sind gut zu Fuß erreichbar. Das Apartment war sehr sauber und gepflegt, nur die Kleiderschränke sind wohl für sehr, sehr große Menschen gebaut, man kann ohne Hilfsmittel nichts aufhängen. Außerdem gibt es keinen Aufzug und man muss die Koffer in den 5. Stock schlepppen. Der Manager war sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Das Apartment ist für 6 Personen absolut ausreichend. In der wärmeren Jahreszeit würden wir nächstes Mal ein Apartment mit Terrasse bei der gleichen company buchen.
Perfect spot in Venice
We stayed at the WaterView Apartment with our daughter, son-in-law and grandson (aged nearly 3 years old). We were met on time on arrival by Marco, who talked us through the procedures and how to work what . He was very helpful and efficient and our security deposit which is held until departure was returned promptly when we got home. The apartment, although up seven or eight flights of stairs (and no lift) was great. It would not be suitable for people with walking difficulties. Three good sized bedrooms, two bathrooms and air-conditioning throughout. It was hot and sunny and we needed that coolness when we got back each day. Everything was clean, modern and bright and the beds were comfortable too. The balcony from the lounge overlooked the quiet canal and the area was very quiet day and night . From the balcony we could see all the large cruise liners going in and out of the Port, which was fascinating for our grandson. If you are a family and don't mind walking (we took a buggy for our grandson) then this is a brilliant place to be. Near to Piazzale Roma for the waterbus or water taxis (expensive), walking distance to lots of interesting museums and the Zattere. Also near two supermarkets (reasonable prices) and a square with several bars and restaurants which took 5 minutes to walk to in the evenings. A tip for buggies and kids - they need to be carried over the canal bridges mainly as they are all stepped although the local ladies seem to bump up and down no problem. Thanks to Marco and Caroline for a good holiday and we recommend you without reservation - great service and friendly too.
Stunning apartment in typically Venetian neighbourhood.
The apartment is a short walk from the main bus station, it is beautifully appointed and very well equiped. There were plenty of good restaurants in the local vicinity. We had an amazing time, we purchased a three day water taxi ticket and saw just about everything on offer in Venice We would certainly use The Red House Company again - we were very impressed with them from the initial enquiry through to the meet and greet at the bus station
Dorsoduro is within Venice for those who know Venice first class
Everything is true. Plaza, market, Vencian life around the corner. Go there, take your wlan gadget and stay forever.
a very amazing place over the roofs of venice
we where a couple of 5 friends and we stay there for one week. this app. is comfortable and quit, but anyway located central and between the locals and the urban life of venice! the service was very good, for example the inside informations and the recommend restaurant references... thank's a lot
What a fantastic apartment! The only thing I can think of that would improve it is a lift and a bath (there's two shower rooms). We stayed there as a group of 6 adults during the carnival and it was so lovely. Beautiful apartment, good amount of space, great location (two options of vaporetto's within a few minutes walk) beautiful view from the balcony overlooking the canal, comfy beds, clean, homely. Supermarket about a minutes walk with very cheap and good food! The apartment is fully equipped for everything you can need. Microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, free wifi, Sky TV etc The owners are fabulous too. We were met by a lady who couldn't have been more helpful. Despite it being up 4 flights of stairs (which, with the suitcases is some work!) you quite soon get used to it. The stairs aren't high individually, and they are big steps (wide) so easy to walk up and down. I will certainly recommend this to my friends and would definitely book it again.
Venise moderne et raffinée
très belle location décoration raffinée et moderne, l'appartement est très spacieux , parfaitement équipé très propre et idéalement situé , l'accueil est très agréable et venant 2 à 3 fois par an à Venise nous gardons cette adresse pour notre prochain séjour
a beautiful flat in Dorsoduro
This flat is beautiful and very clean. The bedrooms are spacious and the decoration is modern and refined.The situation in Dorsoduro is fantastic between the big canal and Zatterre next Campo San Margarita which is lively.Near the flat you have a food store.It's handy.Mr of The Red House Company was very sympatic and gave us lot of advice about Venice.
Check-in and check-out with Marco was smooth and he provided excellent neighborhood and city info. Apartment was clean and furnished with everything we needed. Location was excellent.
We loved the apartment. It was very well maintained and spacious even for a family of 5. The location, while a bit out of the way, offered the benefit of providing a real sense of everyday life in Venice, including daily trips to the grocery store. The view from the balcony was beautiful.
I stayed here with a colleague during the opening of the Biennale. Although almost all of our time was spent outside of the apartment, it was always the perfect place to retire for rest and some wide open views from the balcony.
This was a perfect stay for us in Venice. The apartment was great...quiet at night, lots of light, clean, the beds were comfortable, you would go out on the balcony and there was a canal with bridges and a gorgeous view of the Venice skyline. There are all the things you need close, grocery, pastry and bread shop and a dozen restaurants all within truly a couple minutes walk. Then a five minute walk you are in to the squares and shops and restaurants and night life if you want it. I was there with my family, we had a 2 year old so it was far enough away from it all so he had a great night sleep. The only reason I give it a 4 star on the comfort is that the showers are small. The bathrooms are nice size and have toilet and bidet, but if you are a large person the showers are going to be very tight for you. There is only a washing machine, which is fine for the summer months, but if it is humid or wet outside and you are only there for a few days a dryer in the unit would be fantastic! All this being said, this place is fantastic, and the management are great to deal with. Sweet people who give you amazing places to eat at and see. Enjoy your stay, I hope you do as much as we did, Jerry, Ash, Dasch and Melva
This is our second visit in Venice and we were happy to have this apartment. Very good location for exploring real, not only touristic part of Venice. The apartment is perfect - modern, stylish and comfortable. With a GREAT view. Perfect attitude from the Red House Company. They helped us a lot. Near the apartment is a big food shop. Thanks, Marco. We shall come back again in lovely Venice.
This was a perfect experience having that apartment. Very well equiped, clean and comfortable. This was our second visit in Venice and the location alowed us to have a wide range of walking sightseengs and explore real Venice not only touristic parts. There is a shop for food near the apartment. Also good transport comunications. But the most beautiful thing is the VIEW. Real canal view! Very good customer service provided. Thanks a lot from Bulgaria again!
A fantastic place to see a Venice. The Red House are a great organisation and the place was excellent. Far less than a hotel and much nicer. Highly recommended!
