The Venetian Dream apartment is located in one of the six Sestieri, the urban areas in which Venice was once parted, called Castello. At walking distance from the stop Giardini, this area is well-known for hosting the prestigious Venice Art Biennal, as well as for the authenticity of the Venetian landscape enjoyable in its quiet alleys, the calli. The district, which opens to the stunning San Marco basin, is very characteristic. And just a few steps away is the lively Via Garibaldi and its local food market selling fish, fruits and vegetables, together with the best shops of the city centre, from boutiques to small crafts shops. You can choose a different restaurant every day, among the numerous of the area or, for those who prefer home cooking, buy typical products from the local food shops. Highly evocative and romantic, especially at dusk, is the waterfront Riva degli Schiavoni, which leads you to the amazing San Marco square, passing right in front of the equally evocative Ponte dei Sospiri (the Bridge of Sighs). Once you have crossed one of the world's most beautiful squares, you will find Calle XXII Marzo, where all the famous Italian designer boutiques are located. Easy to reach is also the Venice Lido, well-known for its amazing beaches and the internationally famous Venice Film Festival, which is just one vaporetto stop away from the Venetian Dream apartment.

Reviews for this host's other properties
Located in an alley opposite the church of San Sebastian in Dorsoduro. Just 15 minutes walk from Piazzale Roma and 20 in San Marcos. It is a very quiet place within walking distance of the Fondamenta Zettere and two minutes from the San Basilio vaporetto station. Very close to Santa Margherita and about 20 or 25 min walk Rialto. The apartment is well, no frills but tastefully decorated. We were two adults with three children, praises adults in one room (sofa bed) and children in the other (double bed plus extra bed). The mattress of the sofa bed was below par, so we decided to take the mattress on the floor (pristine) and so slept perfectmente. Kitchen stocked with necessities and bathroom, but had to be careful because the toilet paper clogged the toilet bowl, relatively normal thing in Venice, by the way. Being in an alley and be a ground floor, no view and the light is low, but is offset by absolute silence and peace of mind. Anyway, we were in the apartment alone at night, to dine and sleep, so that neither the views nor the light we care. On the other hand, being in Dorsoduro (one sestiere which we love) and have a slight poendiente alley, you have to go much the aqua alta to penetrate the house. The value for money is good, unless one wants to be in the more touristy center (not our case) is a good site.
Situado en un callejón frente a la iglesia de San Sebastián en Dorsoduro. A escasos 15 minutos andando de Piazzale Roma y 20 de San Marcos. Es un lugar muy tranquilo a un paso de la Fondamenta Zettere y a dos minutos de la estación de vaporetto San Basilio. Muy cerca de Santa Margherita y unos 20 o 25 min de Rialto a pie. El apartamento está bien, sin lujos pero decorado con gusto. Nosotros estuvimos dos adultos con tres niños, loas adultos en una habitación (sofá cama) y los niños en la otra (cama doble más supletoria). El somier del sofá cama era malucho, por lo que decidimos echar el colchón en el suelo (impoluto) y así dormimos perfectmente. Cocina equipada con lo necesario y baño completo, si bien había que tener cuidado con el papel higiénico porque se atascaba la taza del retrete, cosa relativamente normal en Venecia, por cierto. Al estar en un callejón y ser una planta baja, no hay vistas y la luz es escasa, pero se compensa con un absoluto silencio y una gran tranquilidad. De todos modos, estábamos en el apartamento solo por la noche, para cenar y dormir, por lo que ni las vistas ni la luz nos importaban. Por otro lado, por estar en Dorsoduro (un sestiere que nos encanta) y el callejon tener una ligera poendiente, tiene que subir mucho el aqua alta para que penetre en la casa. La relación calidad precio es buena y salvo que uno quiera estar en el centro más turístico (no es nuestro caso) es un buen sitio.
The apartment is considerably smaller than the photos expressed, but it was nice and clean with an excellent location in Venice. Is the top floor of the building, a struggle with several suitcases. The shower and the water pressure was lousy, heard that there was a problem in Venice. Should be small and short hair to shampoo the hair of the three jets of water. But - Venetian streets, bridges and charm was amazing!
Leiligheten er betydelig mindre enn bildene gir uttrykk for, men den var fin og ren med en ypperlig plassering i Venezia. Er i topp etasjen av bygningen, et slit med flere kofferter. Dusjen og vanntrykket var elendig, fikk høre at det var et problem i Venezia. Bør ha lite og kort hår for å få sjampo ut av håret under 3 stråler vann. Men - Venezias gater, broer og sjarm var fantastisk!
We loved Venice, but sadly the accommodation let the holiday down a little, wasn't terrible, but for the money and the lovely photos didn't live up to our expectations. Was far to small and ants everywhere, probably won't book with Wimbu again, sorry.
The apartment is sober, good, clean. The pictures on the website (which is also what warning devices are not up-to-date) we expected a more spacious apartment and not facing a wall in a small alley. Therefore dark and no sun. The location itself is perfect as a base to navigate all sides of Venice; quiet and nice neighborhood again nice to stay between the Venetians. Kitchen can be better furnished: no utensils to join stir in pans no colander, no garlic press, no cheese grater, only one large pan ... that does not fit right in Italy. Moreover, the corkscrew and toaster was broken. All in all we found the price-quality ratio is not optimal ...
Het appartement is sober, goed, schoon. Door de foto's op de website (die ook wat inrichting betreft niet up-to-date zijn) verwachtten wij 'n ruimer appartement en niet met uitzicht op 'n muur in 'n klein steegje. Daardoor donker en geen zon.
De locatie op zich is perfect als uitvalsbasis om alle kanten van Venetie te bevaren; rustige leuke buurt en ook weer leuk om tussen de Venetianen te vertoeven.
Keuken kan beter ingericht worden: geen gerei om mee in pannen te roeren, geen vergiet, geen knoflook pers, geen kaasrasp, alleen 1 grote pan...dat past toch niet bij Italie. Bovendien was de kurkentrekker en broodrooster kapot. Al met al vonden wij de prijs-kwaliteit verhouding niet optimaal...
We had a great time in this apartment - it is very well located, close to the market and shops. After the three-storey walk, the apartment is big enough and functional. The master bedroom is large and a bedroom with two single beds. The last bed is on a mezzanine above the kitchen which is not ideal, but it has a nice view of Venice! Therefore recommend!
Nous avons passé un super moment dans cet apartement - il est tres bien situé, proche du marché et des commerces. Apres les 3 étages a pied, l'appartement est assez grand et fonctionnel. La chambre parentale est grande et une chambre avec 2 lits simples. Le dernier lit est sur un mezzanine au dessus de la cuisine qui n'est pas ideal, mais qui a une vue sympa sur Venise!
A recommander donc!
The apartment was beautifully decorated and with good facilities. Location was also as expected with a small courtyard at the back. Very good arrangements on arrival so we were accompanied to the apartment (addresses not much good in Venice unless you know where to go!) and told where the nearest supermarket was. Local restaurants and cafes have a really "local" ambience even though you are only 10 minutes walk from Rialto. Winter was fabulous-glorious blue skies every day-and plenty of bustle. New Year exciting in St Mark's Square- we wonder how we'll ever top this for 2014 !!! Heartily recommend !
Very nice apartment. Couldn't log in into the wifi, but everything was fine.
The apartment was just as described and matched the pictures. It was close enough to all the tourist hot spots without having that crowded feeling. The famous fish market and Rialto bridge are all within a 5 minute walk. I would definitely book again with this host.
Very pleasant stay, even in January the lights are beautiful. the contact person for the keys to our arrival c is very good password. the geographical situation of the apartment is very good, quiet close to a supermarket and a bar with very pleasant every Thursday evening a group of free jazz. since your arrival in Rome Piazzale bus you can go on foot up a meeting point Riva di Biasio vaporetto you save 7 euros per person. It takes 10 minutes walk without getting lost haha!
tres agreable sejour ,meme en janvier les lumieres sont magnifiques.
le contact de la personne pour les cles a notre arrivee c est tres bien passe.
la situation geographique de l appartement est tres bien, au calme pres d un supermarche et d un bar tres agreable avec tout les jeudis soir un groupe de jazz gratuit.
depuis votre arrivee en bus a piazzale Rome vous pouvez aller a pied jusqu a un point de rencontre riva di Biasio du vaporetto vous economiserez 7 euros par personne.
il faut 10 mn a pied sans se perdre haha!!!!
Beautiful house, clean and tidy very convenient as the location (very close to Rialto and Piazza San Marco). Equipped with all the comforts, from TV to heating! The only thing I would suggest is to change the mattress sofa bed because it is very uncomfortable but otherwise everything was perfect for a vacation in Venice is perfect!
Bellissima casa, ordinata e pulita molto comoda come posizione (vicinissima a Rialto e a Piazza San Marco). Dotata di tutti i comfort, dalla tv al riscaldamento! L'unica cosa che consiglierei è di cambiare il materasso del divano letto perchè è decisamente scomodo ma per il resto è stato tutto perfetto per una vacanza a Venezia è l'ideale!
