    First of all, this apartment is run down and in some areas falling apart. We arrived at the apartment after a 8 hour trip, exhausted with two kids at 3:30 in the afternoon. All we wanted to do was take a shower and relax, but we couldn't because the apartment had not been cleaned and was absolutely filthy from the previous renter. When the cleaning people finally arrived, we proceeded to watch them put the dirty used bedspread back on the beds that the previous renters had thrown on the dirty bathroom floor. The cleaning lady, who was very nice, told us that she had been telling Josh (the owner) that she wanted a second set of bedspreads so that she could swap them out, but he said no. As for the apartment, the pictures that you see online must be from years ago. The cabinet doors in the kitchen have some sort of laminate outer layer on them that has either completely fallen off on some of the doors and is peeling off on the rest of them. My husband opened the freezer and the door fell off right in his hands. The most disgusting thing of all was the couches. They were so bad that we did not sit on them at all. There are stains all over them and they looked like they were picked out of the garbage....gross! In a previous review Josh said that he updated the shabby furniture, well that has NOT happened. There was mold on the walls right next to my 10 year old daughter's bed and all over inside the refrigerator. On to the WIFI problem....When we arrived, we tried out the WIFI immediately because my husband needed it for work the following Monday. We had picked this apartment because it had WIFI. It did not work and the man who gave us the keys to the apartment told us that Josh only pays for a certain amount of WIFI a month and that it has run out. He also said that this is an ongoing problem with this apartment. It was Saturday evening at this point and there was no fixing it until some time on Monday. Of course my husband's meeting would have been over at that point. After a lot of complaining on our part, the woman from the company who watches over the apartment did provide us with her own personal WIFI connection and my husband was able to get online for work. Over all, there are so many other places to rent in Venice. Don't waste your money on this one! Click on my name to see pictures of the apartment that I saw...old, dirty, and falling apart.

    Terrific house (more than an apartment).
    We were very happy in this house. Listing is accurate, except that it is really a house, not just an apartment. The new kitchen was very functional. Four of us very comfortable with everything. Great location, easy to walk to many things. Age... more

    Fantastic location with home from home comforts :)

    A perfect base to explore Venice
    Ca' dei Guardiani is located in the 'real' Venice - away from the crowds and yet within walking distance from the main attractions, two vaporetto stops and the bus station. We could not have wished for a better location! The house has everything n... more

    Excellent time in Venice
    We arrived into venice via bus from Marco Polo airport, the apartment was only a 5 minute walk from Piazza Di Roma which was perfect. The apartment itself was very nicely finished, and was spotlessly clean. The apartment had a lovely courtyard gar... more


The house is on two levels with an open plan lounge, dining and kitchen area on the ground floor. This opens onto a private courtyard which can be used for al fresco dining, maybe a glass of Prosecco before dinner or just enjoying Venice outdoors....
