Review 3833: Views on Venice, Ca' Carmini (#203)


Review by GailS from MA who is a SlowTrav Contributor

1bed/2bath apartment in Dorsoduro, Venice


September 2008, 6 nights


Located in the Dorsoduro section of Venice, across the canal from Campo dei Carmini. It was in a very quiet location.

Nearby Amenities

The apartment is quite close to Campo Santa Margarita which has the Punto grocery store, several cafes and restaurants, and a take out Pizza place.

The House/Apartment

The apartment was extremely quiet. The first floor contained a living room, small bath with shower and small kitchen. The second floor contained a bedroom, second living room and bathroom with tub (but only a hand held sprayer - no wall mount to easily shower). There was a washing machine in the kitchen. The living rooms had comfortable furniture. The only negative for us was that the TV was in the first floor living room but the second floor living room was a bit larger and more comfortable. There was wireless Internet access available as well as English language TV channels (CNN & BBC).


There was a small private garden with table and chairs.

Furnishings/Cleanliness/Living Areas

Everything was clean and in good shape with the exception of the shower curtain in the first floor bath which had mildew.


The bed was comfortable. The first floor bath with shower was quite small. The shower stall itself was reasonably sized but the sink was tiny. The second floor bath was a good sized.


We didn't do any cooking.

Agency and Representatives (and price)

All correspondence was via email. Everything went smoothly. We paid 1100 for six nights. The web site accurately described the apartment.

Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?

This is my second rental through Views on Venice. It was again a good experience.

Things to do in this area

The apartment was an easy walk from Piazzale Roma (10 minutes with luggage) and to the train station (15 minutes with luggage).
