The Dolfin House is found in one of our favorite areas of Venice, the non touristy Cannaregio where many local Venetians live

In this area you can find lots of local artisan shops, food markets, specialty shops, supermarkets...even the restaurants and bars offer delicious food at reasonable prices! The Cannaregio canal is the second widest in Venice, and joins the Grand Canal on the south end to the northern lagoon. A lively, interesting area, served by the public transport Vaporetto line n.1 along the Grand Canal, or the so called "Gira Città" routes n. 41, 42, 51 and 52 along the northern end.

The Dolfin house is located in the heart of the Cannaregio district, thus very central, only 3-4 minute walk to the Cà D'Oro Vaporetto stop (particularly recommended if you arrive by train or car) and to the Madonna dell'Orto Alilaguna stop (very convenient direct water transport if you land at the Marco Polo Airport), even if our personal suggestion is to spoil yourself taking a private water taxi that drops you off directly in front of the entrance door of the house!

The Dolfin house has one of the best private gardens in Venice, definitively the best for this price range. It has two entrances: from the street and from the canal. The garden is perfectly maintained by the caretaker, there is also a large metal table with chairs perfect for romantic candle light dinners, it is very spacious and absolutely quiet. This secret garden is shared with the owner of the second floor of the main building which the Dolfin house belongs to, but you won't most likely meet him, you will possibly see the young daughters playing after school on the other end of the big garden.

Inside, the house is composed of a spacious and very bright living room with high ceilings and wooden beams: here you can find a double pull-out bed and a stunning metal stairway that leads to the attic room which can be used both a s a second bedroom with a large futon bed or as a studio/office room. Please keep in mind that the stairway is quite steep and not suitable for small kids. From the living room you can access the main bathroom and the small but well equipped kitchen. Here you can find dishwasher, oven, 4 burners stoves, kettle, fridge, and a foldable workbench used also as dining table. The main bedroom is also spacious, with a small en-suite bathroom and walk-in wardrobe. 

The equipment of the house includes air conditioning system, Wi-Fi internet connection, flat-screen TV with DVD player, washing machine. We recommend this house to couples or families with the only exclusion of small children as the stairway could be a danger. When placing a booking please specify if you prefer to use the sofa-bed in the living room or the futon bed in the attic.
