“Great apartment, good location”
Stayed in Casa dea Mira sharing with a friend. The apartment was clean, and had everything as described on website. It is a 5/10min walk from Via Garibaldi and located in a quiet residential area. The owner Paola met us at the vaporetti stop and accompanied us to the apartment which was very helpful. When visiting Venice would definitely consider staying here again.
“Very enjoyable +”
We four Aussies loved Venice and this apartment. It is located in a quaint area in Castella away from the madding crowd. There is a local bar/café and supermarket and you are only five minutes walk from Via Garibaldi, a local pedestrian street full of shops and restaurants. We arrived by train and the main vaporetto (waterbus) stop is right outside. We bought our vaporetto tickets to cover our four days and thirty minutes later we were met at Giardini by our host Paola and escorted to the apt. which is clean and comfortable and had all the amenities that we required. Although you were away from the crowd, you were only a few minutes away from two vaporetto stops which gave you easy access to not only the centre of Venice but also the local islands of Murano, Burano and Lido. We left Venice via Marco Polo airport and this was made easy by catching a special vaporetto from Garibaldi which is about 15 minutes walk from the apt. (note - separate ticket required - E15 pp.)
Lovely spotlessly clean apartment in a great and peaceful location. The owner was very friendly and could not do enough for you. We loved it. Close to everything that was wonderful about Venice.
“Excellent location, sweet apartment”
This apartment has a very cottagy feel to it and was just what we wanted. About 15 mins walk from St. Marks Square or 5-7 mins to the Vaporetta stop Giardini. Far from the madding crowd, the local via Garibaldi was filled with locals and very vibrant. Withn walking distance of Osteria Garanghelo (very friendly service) and Trattoria dai Tosi (grumply young guy to start with who then warmed up both times;) - both of which are recommended in tripadvisor). The flat is simple, with plenty of character and comfortable, beds comfortable and nice modern bathroom. (Kitchen could do with a microwave!). Due to its proximity to the canal opp. the San Pedro Cathedral, we were able to take a water taxi more or less directly to our front door, which saved an awful lot of lugging cases up and down bridges. And there really is no better or more exciting way to enter Venice if you can spare the cash! This flat would have been given 5 stars if Paola, the owner, hadn't failed to tell us that the place was a complete building site for the duration of our stay (directly above us AND next door!!), which made for a noisy stay and no lie-ins !! Otherwise, highly recommended.
“Everything you could want from a stay in Venice”
Paola's home is a beautiful place to stay! It looks exactly as it appears in her pictures except even more cozy and inviting. I went to Europe with 3 friends in early January and we traveled to London and Barcelona before ending our trip in Venice. Venice was our favorite destination because of everything the magical city has to offer, but it was also our favorite because of the wonderful home we could go back to after a day of exploring. Two of the nights we bought groceries at a nearby market and made ourselves dinner. We made great memories these nights as we were able to feel fully emersed in Venetian life as if we truly lived there under the wood beam ceiling. Paola was able to meet us right off of the Alilaguna and was extremely helpful and kind. It was overall a wonderful experience and one I would not hesitate to repeat or recommend to friends and relatives. If you are going to Venice and would like to experience the REAL Venice, stay at Casa Dea Mira and let yourself live like a Venetian.
Owner's reply: Dear guests, your comments are so nice!! Thank you very much! Kindest regards, Paola
“A great base for exploring Venice.”
Casa Dea Mira is located in Castello, which seems a quiet part of the city with few tourists and plenty of local street-life, all of it safe and civilised. Part of our reason for visiting was to see the Architecture Biennale, and Casa Dea Mira is perfectly located for this, being only a few minutes' walk away, while the rest of the city is easily reached on foot or by water-taxi. There are plenty of shops nearby as well restaurants, bars and a post office. The property is very comfortable and well-presented, located on the ground floor off a narrow alleyway and next to a canal. It is rather dark, partly because we found it necessary to keep the curtains drawn for privacy; this affected us slightly as we visited in winter, though it would probably be an advantage in summer. The heating worked well and there was an air-conditoiner too. The kitchen, though very small, was quite well-equipped for a holiday home. The bathroom was very pleasant with a good shower. The main bedroom was cozy and had plenty of storage space; we didn't use the second bedroom though it looked a good deal smaller. The lounge and dining area was very comfortable with a T.V and music system. Unfortunately we weren't able to get the internet to work on either of our devices (iPhone and BlackBerry) which was a shame, and there was no facility for playing DVDs. Overall though, a very nice place to stay and highly recommended.
“Well equipped and in a wonderful location.”
This is an amazing place to stay. We were met by Paola who was very friendly and helpful, she showed us how everything worked and pointed out useful things like the nearest supermarket. This accommodation is very well equipped, there were enough pans and utensils to cook proper food, and enough crockery to serve it on. The place was clean and tidy and very comfortable. The children really loved their room, with its high and low beds. The shower room is very spacious unlike many other Venice hotels, and the whole apartment was warm and cosy even when there was a storm outside. It is idealy located, with a wonderful view over a canal with all the boats. It is a short walk from San Pietro, which is just over the bridge. You are also a very short walk from a supermarket, but also several bakers, a butcher, the fruit and vegetable boat (there is also a vegetable stall that stays open late in Via Garibaldi). It is very easy to get to either the San Pietro or Arsenale vaparetto stops. It is probably worth taking/buying wellies as at Acqua Alta you might have to wade out of the appartment!
Owner's reply: Dear guests, thank you so much for your nice review!! It is very appreciated! I really hope to host you next time you are going to visit Venice again! Kind regards, Paola
“Great Apartment, Perfectly wonderful stay in Venice!”
Paola, the owner was so gracious and helpful. The apartment was perfect for our needs, a great location away from the hustle and crowds of Venice but just a short walk to St Marks. The nearby supermarket and the gardens of the Giardini were a welcome bonus. We had a wonderful stress-free experience and we would definitely stay there again.
Owner's reply: Dear guests, thank you so much for your comments: if you decide to come back here I would be very pleased to host you again!
“Very disappointing, dirty and badly equipped”
At first, the apartment looked ok. Unfortunately we soon discovered how dirty it actually was. All of the cutlery and cooking utensils were filthy with bits of stuck-on food, as if they hadn't been washed at all. All the plates were cracked and chipped, glasses were dirty, pots and pans dirty. We had to wash everything before we could use it. The kitchen was also very poorly equipped, everything was of very poor quality and there just weren't enough plates, bowls etc. The shower was full of dead flies and didn't look like it had had a thorough clean for ages. There was no toilet paper, surely a necessity! As the local shop was closed, we were forced to contact the owner's husband to bring us some. The single beds weren't made up when we arrived, the owner's husband had to go off and return with sheets and towels. We were then left to make the beds. The single beds were in a very poor condition and were dirty, not what we expect our children to have to sleep on. A heavy door fell off the cupboard in the children's bedroom - fortunately no-one was injured. The whole apartment was in need of a good clean - perhaps there wouldn't have been a fly and ant invasion if it was cleaner. Fortunately, we had only booked to stay for 3 nights. We have emailed the owner about these problems but have not received a reply.
After a chaotic stay in Rome, we arrived late at night to meet Paola waiting for us at the Water Taxi Stop. She was lovely and very welcoming. As for Ca' Dea Mira, it was perfect!! Very clean and modern inside, but lots of original character and charm. You can step out of the front door and within five steps, you can sit by the edge of the canal. It is great for families and couples, and within walking distances to most of the majoy sights. We loved Venice and loved Ca' Dea mira and would definitely hope to return. If you buy a three day ticket for the Vaparetto/water taxi, you can practically go anywhere around Venice and the Lido.... a great experience for all. As Ca Dea Mira is in a quieter part of mainland Venice, you can benefit from better priced restaurants and eaterys and also you are not over run with the crowds. We visited the Biennale Art Exhibition..... and although we love art and are quite open minded.... it was not quite what we expected... a bit political and a bit wierd to be honest!!! Spend your money elsewhere like renting a bike for the whole day on the Lido!
