The North East Italy region
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 attractionsof 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 on every square, alongside great bacari – wine bars - and restaurants. The Campo Santa Margherita is the social hub of the area and the centre of Venice’s nightlife is just 2 minutes away. Nearby, Zattere with its view of the Guidecca canal and waterside dining offers another wonderful spot to watch the world go by over a drink or meal and you can catch a ferry to Croatia from the Stazione Maritima. Dorsoduro is also home to the famous Peggy Guggenheim museum.
Despite experiencing more of the "real Venice", access to the main tourist attractions, such as San Marco, is easy and fast, giving in our view, the best of both worlds.

My wife and our two girls, aged 11 and 8 1/2, stayed in this beautiful apartment in Venice for three nights. We were warmly greeted and settled by Sarah, who provided us with a thorough orientation to the property, and was able to answer all our questions about nearby supermarkets, markets, and restaurants (and we did go to the garden patio restaurant Sarah recommended, Il Profeta, which was a wonderful evening as well). The apartment was beautiful, with a brand new kitchen, and a beautiful outdoor patio at which we ate most of our meals. The apartment was very well equipped and gave us everything we needed for big meals and small, teapot to moka! The apartment was located in a quiet, peaceful area of Venice, but was still only a few minutes walk to all the major sites including the Giudecca Canal, where vaporetto stops and Billa (supermarket) were located. It was also very close to some lesser known but amazing local places like Campo Santa Margherita and Campo San Barnabas (a much better place to get a gondola than the busier centres). We were also able to walk to the train station, which was 15 minutes away. At the end of the street was a restaurant and bar for morning coffee. We stayed in four apartments during our Italian trip, and Josh was by far the most attentive owner. He answered all our questions thoroughly, provided great information in advance, and even arranged for our left-behind sunglasses to be sent to us. We have already told several friends about the place, and would not consider staying anywhere else on a return to Venice.

"Simply the most perfect place to stay in Venice"
Read previous reviews and they all carry a common theme - a well-maintained and beautiful apartment in a quiet residential neighborhood. It is all that and more. Everything worked perfectly - from o… More

This was our second time staying at Ca dei Guardiani and it was even better than last time. The great location and private courtyard are the same as before but the owner has recently installed a new kitchen, new leather sofas and redecorated. Making the arrangements before was really easy and the Property Management team made us feel really welcome when they showed us how everything worked, plus we were provided with useful recommendations on restaurants, bars, grocery shopping etc. We had a great time and can't wait to go back!

"Great house with lovely courtyard, great location to explore Venice"
During and after booking this location the contact with Josh went very well, he was very prompt in his response and also provided us with useful practical information and some recommendations on restaurants. He has engaged a property management team from Venice that picked us up on an agreed location and brought us to the house, preventing us getting lost in the maze of Venice while dragging around our luggage and supplying us with even more practical tips.
A short walk from our waterbus stop, along one of those typical Venetian canals, brought us to the little street in which the house is located. The house is located in a lovely residential area, away from the main tourist crowds but still very Venetian and at walking distance from all main sights (if you want to prevent walking as much as possible, the waterbus stop is within a 5 minutes walking distance). The house itself was absolutely spotless when we arrived. The furniture looked brand new and it is equipped with a brand new kitchen with dishwasher, oven, microwave, etc. The house matched the description but still exceeded our expectations when we saw it in person.
We loved the courtyard where all the flowers were in full bloom when we were there. We loved having an aperitivo there after a day of exploring Venice before heading to the restaurant of choice for that evening.
Within a short walking distance from the house (5 minutes) there is a supermarket that carries all products needed (and a fabulous greengrocer that carries a lot of locally grown delicious fruit & vegetables). Also very close by is the market square Campo Santa Margeritha that has some decent restaurants and bars and where there is a relaxed atmosphere is the evening when a mix of tourists, locals and students gather at the square for dinner and drinks.
All in all, we had a fabulous stay in this house and in Venice and recommend it to anyone we know who is planning a trip to Venice and who prefers a house over a hotel.

"perfect winter break"
The apartment is conveniently situated for arrival via train or by bus from the airport.
It's very well equipped, dishwasher,washing machine etc and has the bonus of an outside courtyard. Supermarket and ice cream close by ! Also close to the vaperetto.
We hope to return as we enjoyed our stay very much.

"Loved this apartment - 100% will go back"
Just got back and had the most amazing trip to Venice! This was our first visit to the city therefore naturally we were a little apprehensive of where to choose but after seeing such positive reviews on the property we went ahead and booked Ca'dei Guardiani. Josh the owner was so helpful and so prompt with all correspondence – he even provided a guide for us with directions and details on the property and general tips.
We really felt the property was in the perfect location for us – super close to transport and in a less touristy part of town with really lovely traditional bars, cafes and restaurants. We particularly liked Campo Santa Margharita – full of lovely bars and restaurants where the locals hang out and only 5mins from the apartment.
The apartment has just been renovated with a new kitchen which was very modern. The whole property is in excellent condition and very clean – we especially liked the large room sizes, power shower, large living room (with very comfy sofa's) and stylish kitchen. If the weather had been dryer and slightly warmer we definably have used the terrace also! The Property Manager was also very pleasant on arrival and was extremely helpful and informative with everything we asked. An extra bonus for me was the internet access also.
Overall I think the property is even better than the pictures make out. The owner is extremely helpful which made booking and organising a breeze. I am looking to visit Venice again next year in the spring/summer time and will definitely choose to stay at this apartment again. I feel 100% confident to recommend this apartment to any other individual and trust that they would have the same excellent experience that we had.

"A perfect base to explore Venice"
Ca' dei Guardiani is located in the 'real' part of Venice - away from the crowds and yet within walking distance from the main attractions, two vaporetto stops and the bus station. We could not have wished for a better location! The house has everything needed for a comfortable stay including a lovely terrace on which to relax after a hard day of sightseeing. There is also a free WiFi so that we could catch up with e-mails at the end of the day if we wanted to. Josh, the house owner, was very helpful both before and during our stay, with useful advice and recommendations, and only an e-mail away. We have loved our long weekend in Venice which was no doubt helped by the great location of Ca' dei Guardiani - and are keen to go back! Thank you Josh!

"Apartment Needs Updating"
Although the location is good, this apartment did not live up to our expectations. The kitchen and living room furniture are very dated and worn out, to the point that we chose not to use them. Also… More
I would ask that potential guests read the many positive reviews that our previous guests have posted and then draw their own conclusions regarding the downstairs furniture, however we will be replacing the 5 year old sofas and installing a new kitchen in October, after the current peak season when we can have access to the house to do this work.
The group arrived at the house before the official check in time, clearly the cleaning hadn't been finished and it wasn't possible for them to have showers but in fairness to housekeeping, the previous guests had checked out much later than they should have done and they had left a huge amount of mess in the house. Whilst we always try and be accommodating regarding arrival and departure times, it sometimes isn't possible to let guests take possession before the official start of the rental. Nevertheless, on this occasion, we were a bit late in making the apartment ready for the guests and apologies for that as it was our responsibility to do this.
As far as the WiFi is concerned, we didn't have any at the house for 5 years but decided to put a system in place in recent months. The first WiFi system we put in gave 5Gb per month of data, which is a huge amount in terms of e mails, web surfing etc but the way this system operated, it couldn't be “topped up” during the month. In this case it seems that the previous guests had ignored our request to be considerate and they had used an enormous amount of the free WiFi data through downloading of films, Skype calls and on-line games. It was not a question of our refusing to pay more to get more data it just wasn't possible to fix this on the weekend and our lovely Property Manager kindly gave the guests her home system instead. We have now installed a new upgraded WiFi so this problem should no longer arise.
Our reviews have generally been very good, but we do realise that some guests are more demanding than others and we will take these comments on board and strive to improve.
