In an enchanting location overlooking one of the prettiest canals in all of Venice, a bright and classic two bedroom apartment situated in a tranquil position right next door to the Convent of the Eremite and opposite one of the most historic and well-known restaurants in the city, ‘Locanda Montin’.
Ca’ Canaletto on the Rio Delle Romite (sometimes known as ‘Rio Dell’ Eremite’ or ‘Canal of the Hermits’ in English) offers air-conditioning and plenty of flexible living space with tasteful, well furnished living and dining areas overlooking the canal, a fully fitted kitchen and a second living area with a double sofa bed. It has a large double bedroom with ensuite bathroom with bathtub and a separate shower, a second bedroom with twin beds (which can be made unto a double - simply ask when booking) and another bathroom with shower. The two bedrooms are quiet, comfortable and highly appealing and overlook the neighbouring gardens.
Peaceful, though certainly not isolated, the apartment is but a minute’s walk from the gentle activities of a thriving neighbourhood - take a short stroll down the alleyway opposite, with its little illuminated shrine and enticing air of secrecy, before suddenly arriving onto the Fondamenta Toletta, a charming street of bookshops, bar, gelataria, ATM and the canalside tables of the small, but highly popular, ‘Enoteca Ai Artisti’.
Also within a minute of the fine restaurants of Calle Lunga San Barnaba which leads directly to the delightful Campo San Barnaba and then onto the Ca’ Rezzonico vaporetto stop and the highly impressive Ca’ Rezzonico Museum of 18th Century Art, with its commemorative plaque to the poet Robert Browning, directly shouldering the Grand Canal.
Was met on the canel side and walked to apartment where everything was well explained, was clean and tidy. When we booked a water taxi return to the airport views on venice organised everything for me with no hassles. I would defiantly recommend Venice and most defiantly would book again with views on venice.
The Villa was very clean and spacious, and provided an informative instruction book and maps. The contact person, Caterina, was very nice and helpful, but she was almost an hour late as we waited outside for the keys. The location was convenient and quiet, and on a beautiful canal, but because it was somewhat secluded, a group of men from Columbia would meet outside our door twice a day as they prepared their counterfeit purses for sale to the tourists. There were two large bedrooms, plus a pullout sofa and couches for sleeping on. The beds were firm, but not uncomfortable. They forgot the sheets and towels for our fifth guest, but brought them promptly. The kitchen was easy to work in and clean, and offered a small table for dining. There was also an additional dining table that looked out towards the canal. It had three independent AC units, but we were there during cool mild weather, so we mostly opened the windows, because the dining room AC was loud.
For the most part, it was a nice rental, but it has foundation issues which resulted in severely rolling floors. As a result, my mother (age 55) developed a bad case of vertigo which lasted the ENTIRE time we were there, and even lingered for several days afterwards. My wife also experienced vertigo, but the path to our room was not quite as rolling, so her symptoms didn't last as long. The floor also suddenly shifts upwards at the entrance of the master bedroom, which was a toe stubber.
There is a long narrow set of steps you must climb to get into the apartment. They weren't inconvenient for our group, but I'm mentioning it so that people are aware. NOTE: In Italy, the ground floor is "0" and the (1st) first floor is actually a flight up.
If a rating of 3.5 stars was available, I'd give it that score, but it's not, so I gave it a 4 ... because 3 would be an injustice.
We have stayed at three VRBO properties during our vacation, with this one far and away the best. It was the most expensive of the three, but worth it.
The entry area going up the stairs seems to be under construction, which worried us on arrival, but upon opening the door to the apt, well, it was just perfect.
The only negatives I would have are the bed I was in was quite firm for my taste, and the master shower was a bit tight.
Can't beat location: quiet, near Accademia Bridge, near points of interest, restaurants, latte stops and gelato. Decor fair to good. There was a sink problem with odor in one bath and 1st floor was under construction. Otherwise fine.
Lovely, freshly renovated, spacious apartment, with everything you could want including lots of utensils, crockery and cutlery so you could cook and serve a proper full meal; well appointed bathrooms, comfortable sitting room and dining room, spacious bedrooms with lots of cupboards. A perfect home from home and one I would return to. Views On Venice gave outstanding customer service, again
The property is spacious, well appointed (especially the kitchen) and a perfect home from home. It was truly a pleasure to stay there and would stay again.
Ca' Canaletto is a very comfortable apartment in a very pretty and accessible area. It is a great value and is close to Campo Santa Marguerita, Accademia and the Ca' Rezonnico vaporetto stop. It is our apartment of choice and we plan to stay there again.
