We loved this apartment. It was close to everything, but it was very quiet and tucked away out of the crowds.

Some initial pre-arrival concerns were:

How much worse will it be than it appears on line?
How feeble will the a/c be?
Will people stand outside the apartment on the bridge and make noise?
Will boat noise be irritating...and how about that church tower?
Will the kitchen be useless?

Appearance...
When we arrived, we were immediately struck by how much better the apartment was than it appeared on line. We have rented a lot of apartments and houses around the world, and many do not come close to the pictures you see on-line. We were extremely pleased with this rental's condition. Couldn't have been better.

A/C...
A/C in Italy can range from warm air being fanned at you as if by butterfly wings, on up to what we had in this apartment, "cold air." It was 35c each day we were in Venice, but we never once felt hot in the apartment.

People hanging out on bridge...
Nobody lurked around the bridge yammering on cell phones, and nobody used the campo across the rio as a bar. The apartment was serenely quiet and peaceful.

Boat noise...church bells...
We almost never heard a boat drive by. And you could only hear the bells going off if you opened a window in order to hear the bells going off.

Kitchen...
We used it, it had everything we needed, and we never felt like it was lacking.

Dorsoduro in general is a great place to come "home" to, and there are lots of options for food and drinks within walking distance of the apartment. There's also a Billa just down the fondamenta Zattere, so groceries are very close by.

Views on Venice is no less stellar than the apartment and neighborhood, and we really enjoyed working with everybody there. Our flight arrived 3 hours late, but Valentina met us as if nothing was out of the ordinary. She was an excellent contact person and handled check-in and check-out quickly and smoothly.

Behind the scenes, Daniela was equally as helpful. This was a very well run and responsive management company, and we appreciated it. I would rate this as one of the best managed rental experiences we've had.

Management Response

Ciao amandadeseta! Thank you so much for taking the time to write in with what is our very first Flipkey/Tripadvisor review of Ca’ Del Rio – we’re thrilled to hear that things went so well and that all was to your liking! (re: gelato, hoping you also tried some from nearby ‘Lo Squero’ (on the way to Accademia) - if you didn’t then you’ll have to come back!) Sending you all a ‘Ciao’ from the office and hope very much that we see you again soon.
With our grateful thanks,
Filippo, Views on Venice
