The Dolfin House is located in the charming, non-touristy Cannaregio District, where many local Venetians live.

It is surrounded by private gardens, perfectly maintained by the caretaker, furnished with a large metal table and chairs, perfect for romantic candle light dinners as it is very spacious and absolutely quiet at night.

This “secret” garden is shared with the owner of the second floor of the main building which the Dolfin entrance porch is connected 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 as 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.

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 is located only 5 minutes’ 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!
