“Perfect apartment, perfect vacation”
Reviewed 13 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

My husband and I have been to Venice many times but have never rented. We always stay in Dorsoduro so when I found The Venetian Terrace I knew it was the place for us. This is by far the best rental we have ever had in all of Italy. The renovation was very thoughtfully done. There is nothing missing here. And the flat is comfortable - which is not always the case with rentals in Italy. You immediately feel at home. The location is most convenient in a beautiful area. I would suggest taking a land taxi from the airport as it brings you to a spot that is only a few minutes walk to the flat. If stairs are not an issue for you, I would not hesitate to rent The Venetian Terrace. The owners are extremely accommodating and everything went smoothly.

“Perfect Venetian holiday.”
Reviewed 20 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

The Venetian Terrace far exceeded our expectations. The website and the details promised didn't even do it justice (and that was pretty amazing sounding). Every detail is thought of in this place! It's like you have stepped back in time with all of the beautiful architecture and design, yet there is all the modern details that made the stay perfect like the oven, washer, all the kitchen supplies, comfortable beds, amazing shower, etc. The owners went above and beyond in making this home perfection!! The location is also pretty nice. Two blocks from a major waterbus stop, port to take a land taxi, close to a big grocery store, and of course in the heart of Venice with great restaurants and little markets. Would not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone!! Truly the most beautiful place I have ever stayed!

“Calm, clean and great views from the altana”
Reviewed 16 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

person found this review helpful

This neighborhood is great! There's no impenetrable crowds; just local people going about their business. There's great place for ciccetti, a rustic local osteria with traditional Venetian seafood, natural gelato, a gourmet food store for dining in the apartment, a greengrocer selling all kinds of fresh produce, a fishmonger in a nearby square... in short, you can move in and live like a local.

The apartment is ultra clean, the kitchen equipped well enough that I could actually make restaurant quality food (ok, I was trained as a chef), the altana deck on the roof is great for an afternoon spritz - and you can watch people and boats pass below in the canal... Sunrise photography from the altana works great, too.

“Living like a local”
Reviewed 22 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Deborah and Mark have obviously given their hearts and souls into creating what is a home-away-from home for them, but also an absolutely lovely and special "home" to be shared with their guests ( and I use the term "guest" because that's exactly how we felt staying there). The Venetian Terrace more than met our expectations. The apartment itself was to us, magical. It has been renovated to insure that anyone lucky enough to stay there would be comfortable and charmed. It's hard to say what we most enjoyed about the apartment but, if pressed, I think that the over-all beautiful decor, and the roof top deck would be our favorites.

Deborah was always available to answer questions. When we experienced one problem, which was the lack of light in the entrance hall at our arrival, she made a real effort to speak with me personally on our return to be sure that she understood the problem so that it could be corrected for future guests. That meant a lot .

Dorsoduro was to us the perfect neighborhood. It's just a twenty minute walk to Saint Marks , but a world away from the tourists and crowds. It's is is own little village and we felt, though we knew we were just pretending, like locals for those few days.

Among the many perks of staying at The Venetian Terrace are the easy walk to the Vaporetto, the nearby Bila supermarket which allowed us to easily pick up any food we needed, and the many local shops and restaurants within easy walking distance. We were thrilled to be able visit t The Peggy Guggenheim Museum, and to have the opportunity to experience La Boheme in Venice. But, most of all, what we'll always remember is just walking and walking and getting a bit lost, but figuring out how to get "un-lost" which made us feel so good and so connected to this wonderful city.

Would we choose to stay there again? Absolutely! In fact I'm yearning to go back with my husband.. Others have provided more information , but please contact me if you have any questions .Bottom line: If you have the chance to go to Venice just go! If you can stay at the Venetian Terrace you won't be sorry. In fact, you'll be delighted!

Do know that there are many stairs to the apartment so this would not be a good choice with anyone with physical disabilities.

“Perfect for a magical holiday”
Reviewed 20 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We absolutely loved our holiday in Venice and staying at the Venetian Terrace was such a good choice. The fact that it's away from the busy centre of Venice is absolutely to its advantage. The location in Dorsoduro has a local village type atmosphere and the 20/25 minute walk into the centre is very pleasant. We loved sitting on the altana listening to the nearby church bells chiming, viewing the stars above (our son found a useful night sky app) and beautiful canal beneath. Travel to the apartment from the airport was also much easier (and cheaper) than to other areas in Venice. The nearby Billa supermarket (approx 5 mins walk) on the Zattere has a good selection of foods, in particular the ready prepared canapés were convenient. The beds are extremely comfortable and the air conditioning works very well - and is quiet! There is a fabulous collection of guidebooks to browse through. We had a little problem with the Wi-fi but learnt that it needed to be rebooted regularly. Overall this apartment would be hard to beat. Many thanks to Deborah and Mark for all their hard work in equipping and furnishing the apartment to such a high standard and for their help with our holiday enquiries. We look forward to returning soon.
