Casamina is a stunning 120 sm house with private court, water door and boat: it is furnished with contemporary bespoke design. The brightest spot is beside Giardini of Biennial, 15 minutes from S Mark. In the house, we rent the guests' room and its private toilet with full amenities. The owner will be welcoming you with stunning, uncanny tips on the city and is available for boat tours, chef's dinner at home with famous guides and cooks.

The space
Just 1 minute by walk with no bridges from Giardini (Biennale) and 10 minutes from Alilaguna Stop (Arsenale) and 2 minutes from vaporetto stops for/from Lido, Casamina is a splendid old but design-furnished house in Venice with a porta sola (private entrance) and private court in the backyard (bordering with Giardini i.e. the public gardens of the city: lots of trees, lots of birds).

The house is with 3 free sides (one of these is a canal), a very rare opportunity in Venice. The windows are like canvases on the real fabric of the town.

We rent 1 guests' room and its private toilet in this excellent apartment.

The owner is a design curator and journalist living inside the house and fully available to suggest you any tip on where to go and where to eat.

The house is also inhabited by a superb Siamese cat.

For sport lovers the house is ideal for those loving running and footing (thanks to the park and the stunning bank side outside the house).

It is also provided by 2 professional tennis-tables in the adjacent public garden (and we can borrow paddles and balls).

We have also a basket ball area (the basket court is 250 meters from the house and is free of charge) and a freesbee!

The guest room is windowed in our private court, so is very calm and silent but also very bright in the afternoons when the sun kisses that side of the house.

It has a French Bed (140cmx200cm) and can be rent by one or by two persons (a couple) per time: wifi is included with all the male/female amenities (which includes also shaving cream and aftershave: you will need only toothbrush and razors!), bath &bed linen, slippers.
You are asked to pay the council tax (4 euro per person per day up to the 5th day of stay) in cash upon your arrival when we'll record your ID if EU citizen or passport if not.

House is not smoking and therefore is possible only to smoke in our private court or in the campo.

Breakfast and/or cooking other meals is forbidden due to the law scheme we are subjected in our council.

We'll be very happy to offer you a coffee or a tea upon your arrival and you can sip them every morning before leaving for your wanderings, but due to the rules (we host ethically and responsibly as per our town laws) we cannot make kitchen and breakfast available.

Apartment has 1 washing machine that guests can use 1 time for free if they stay for at least 5 days (we do not have drier but a sunny court where to dry linen), plus a good library with art/architecture catalogs section and a video library. For guests wanting to use laundry facility even if they stay less days, we ask a contribution of 10 euros for soap and electricity. There is an automatic laundry at 5 minutes by foot which costs from 15 to 19 euro to wash and dry.

Venice sparkling day&night life, the art&design&theatre opening listings, the best djs in town, in a word all the owner's network, make this stay absolutely unique!

In addition the house district is very popular, perfect for Art/Architecture Biennale and Venice Movie Festival, but especially the only one still remaining totally true Venetian.

The house is placed in a big campo (square), with a splendid natural light and is beside a calm canal. It is placed in the only green area in Venice!

Extra (to be billed apart and reserved in advance according to availability of our partners): art&food guided tours, served dinners at home with chefs, boat tours (night and day), pick-up from/for Marco Polo Venice airport or train station or bus station.

Guest access
The guests access the house from the entrance door on ground level + from the door on the canal (only if they book a boat tour) that is located in the private court. They can use the court and the kitchen or the landroom for breakfast.

Other things to note
The house is on a canal and on a campo, with 3 free sides, a very rare opportunity in Venice. The windows are like canvases on the real fabric of the town.
