About this listing
minimum 3 nights
Light-filled, very pleasant room on a canal in private home behind Campo Santa Margherita in the sestiere of Dorsoduro.
Minimum stay is two nights, although I highly recommend that guests schedule a minimum of three nights ... two simply aren't enough.
Apartment is convenient to Piazzale Roma, train station, the Maritime Station at San Basilio, and all waterbus lines. It is within short walking distance of the splendid Zattere quay on the Canal of the Giudecca, the Punta della Dogana, the Guggenheim and Pinault Collections, the Accademia Museum, Ca' Rezzonico, the Scuola Grande dei Carmini and that of San Rocco, the Church of the Frari, and Ca' Foscari and IUAV universities.
Great outdoor cafes, snack bars, pizzerias and restaurants are in the immediate vicinity.
Room includes queen-sized bed, linens, ceiling fan and wireless internet access. Room is bright in the morning, guests sensitive to noise might be disturbed by periods of boat traffic on the canal; an eye mask and ear plugs will be provided on request. Guest's bathroom is not en suite. No air conditioning or tv. No laundry or ironing on the premises, but a laundromat and a dry cleaners are in the vicinity.
Single occupancy is preferred, though I occasionally accept low-key, considerate couples (surcharge for two is 15 euros / night).
I'd like to know about you before I accept your booking - please complete your airbnb profile with photo and verification and provide some information about yourself when you submit your request.
Guests are invited to borrow books from my library. I only ask that they not be removed from my home and that they be returned before leaving.
Interaction with Guests
I will gladly share my knowledge of and love for Venice, encouraging (and providing the necessary info for) guests to move off the beaten path into the lagoon. I am present when guests need me, otherwise I keep a very low profile. Guests can (and should) count on me for assistance as they would a member of their extended family.
Guests are asked to be mature, discreet, considerate, trustworthy, and tidy. No visitors are allowed. Accommodation does not include breakfast or use of kitchen. Guests may not eat meals in their room (but there are fabulous cafes, snack bars, and restaurants in the immediate vicinity). A carafe of fresh filtered water is placed at your bedside. I will be happy to provide a selection of teas and a thermos with hot water.
I cannot store luggage before check-in or after check-out. I will however refer you to excellent, trustworthy facilities in Piazzale Roma or at the Santa Lucia train station.
Please respect check-in and check-out times.
