An excellent apartment, location and wonderful introduction to Venice. Brilliant communication from the owner Jackie, superbly appointed and the terrace and passing gondolas were a treat for my wife, my son, his fiance and myself in September 2010.
Give yourselves a treat and stay in a 'real' ventian home with local wine and prosecco available just a couple of doors down the street.
You can walk to Rialto, St Mark's Square, The Frari and Accademia in no time at all and buy your jewellery at Attombri's near the Rialto bridge.

absolutely beautiful apartment with everything you could possibly need

What a fantastic apartment. My wife and I, together with our 3 boys, spent 6 weeks touring Europe and this was our favourite accomodation by far. I wish I were there right now! The apartment is a credit to Jackie. She has thought of, and caters for, every aspect of what is required to make it an ideal base for your stay in Venice. The decor is really beautiful, classy and welcoming. There are board games, dvds, computer games and a heap of English language sattelite tv channels to keep you entertained if you want to stay in (which was great for our boys). There is a incredibly well stocked little library with an absolute wealth of information about Venice (guide books, novels, coffee table photography tomes etc). The ktichen has everything you could possibly need. Jackie is obviously passionate about Venice and about providing her guests with the best opportunity to enjoy their stay. We could easily have stayed for weeks!

We had a wonderful stay at Ca'Venexiana and to anyone wondering if this would be a good place for themsleves and family to stay - I would say book it NOW - don't miss out. It felt like a luxury home not a flat - it was a pleasure to stay for our family of 5.

This is the type of apartment that makes you write a review to tell the world how nice it is.
I have stayed in many apartments across Europe, and this type of apartment is really the future: the hotels will be a thing of the past !
The amenities of the apartment are unbelievable. We travelled with children, and they even found a gamecube to play , lots of Tv channels, internet for us!
The information was incredible : books, guides, a book with all the apartment information.
there were umbrellas, hats, and even something to cover my shoulders in churches!!!
I hate it when I arrive at one apartment and there is no cleaning stuff. Here you find everything: detergent, dishwasher tablets, bin bags. you don't have that feeling that you have to spend a fortune in the supermarket to be confortable (as we had to do in our previous holiday home in Tuscany).
The apartment also has all the basics for cooking : olive oil, vinegar, salt spices, coffee, tea, sugar,.
For me there are 2 types of apartments: the very basic ones and the ones where you feel you have borrowed someone else's home. This is how you feel at Ca Venexiana, at home.
I must also said that it has been tatesfully decorated to the last detail. Even the table lamps had amercian sockets, this means that someone who is capable of crossing the Atlantic with lamps to decorate is putting loads of attention to the last detail, or at least that was my conclusion!
In fact I must say the the photos of the advert are the worst part of it, as the reality is far better.
The views to the canal were amazing, just sitting outside having a coffee feels a real venetian experience.
The location is also very convenient. You are close to atractions but not in the middle of the tourist center. It is a pleasure to walk along the streets of Dorsoduro. We really enjoyed Venice and the city impressed us very much.
There was a waterbus stop, a supermarket, restaurants and shops very near.
Congratulations for the great job done in this apartment!
