Acerca de nuestra casa

Our home in Vienna is a fascinating mixture of architecture from different periods. The original house - a villa from 1927 - was gutted and totally renovated as well as extended with a modern annex with a wooden facade by award winning architects (A2K). Most visitors to date have been very impressed (please see on-line reviews for their specific comments on the house, location and general experience with us) with the job, which tastefully combines historic character with contemporary urban design.

The house has a total of 3 levels:

Garden level: two bedrooms (both of them now only used as playroom for the children when they want to get away from the parents!!), a bathroom with a shower and loo.

Ground floor: 2 double bedrooms, 1 children’s bedroom with two beds (bunk bed),
1 study / bedroom, bathroom with shower and bathtub, a separate toilet

Upper floor: open plan living room with double height ceilings, kitchen, open fireplace, conservatory and magnificent, very private 30 m2 terrace and second smaller terrace. Sun on the terrace all day but have umbrella during the summer

The house is located in a very quiet, green and safe district. The 43 tram into the city takes 19 minutes (in the morning you wait 2 minutes for the tram, during the day probably 3-5mins) or alternatively the underground 11 minutes to St Stephens the heart of Vienna (bus to the underground runs every 10 minutes and takes 9-11 minutes).

Magnificent routes extending for miles for walking, jogging and biking just 2 minutes away at the end of our road. By the way, a car is not necessary as the public transport is excellent (probably one of the best in the world) overall.

From the very private terrace one has wonderful views to the vineyards and famous “Wienerwald” (massive forest which extends 45km in length and 20-30km in width) as well as to our own beautiful garden (app. 900 m2) with inviting places to sunbathe, relax, eat and lots of space to play for children (we have 2 children so there is a trampoline, children’s swimming pool as well as lots of toys available). There are also pieces of art in the garden.

Number of travellers possible in our home: 4 to MAXIMUM of 5 for your own comfort.

All rooms are very bright and offer nice garden views through big windows. Each room is decorated tastefully with a combination of antiques and new urban design.

In total, the house has approx. 250 m2 of living space plus a 30 m2 roof terrace and a smaller (also very private) terrace on the other side of the house, together with 900 m2 of private landscaped gardens.

House, urban with 6 bedrooms (of which only 3 have beds as others are used for home office/kids playroom), sleeps 4-5 very comfortable, 2 bathroom(s), floor area of 250 m2 (ca. 2,700 sq.ft), WCs 2, car optional, children OK, NO smoking, including internet (highspeed), number of travellers: 4 to MAXIMUM of 5 for your comfort

Más sobre nosotros

  1. We are a family of 4:

    David, originally from Dublin, Economics graduate from Trinity Dublin, former M&A investment banker now self employed. Loves quality time with the children, reading, jogging and mountain biking.

    Verena (PhD in law from University of Vienna and a Harvard postraduate 1998 - 2000), originally Swiss but has lived most of her life in Vienna. Head of Strategic HR Management at major European bank, with love for our children, gardening, books, and architeture. Last but not least our two treasures Carla who is 11, and Vincent who is 8 (both as of August 2018).

    We love to spend time as a family at our home, which we have carefully renovated and built over the last years. Now that our children are old enough we are enjoying to travel more again. We like Home Exchange as we really feel that we are living almost like a "local" rather than a tourist and that really has been a great experience for us and the children.

    We are very very reliable, well organised, very neat & tidy and will certainly take the UTMOST care of your home (we do expect the same of our guests). We have no problems looking after pets (with exception of exotic spiders and snakes!!!).

    We have a two cats and would appreciate it if you could give them some food and water, otherwise very well behaved and outdoors all of the time normally.

    We speak English, German, Russian (and limited Spanish)

Where is it?


Wonderful, green and quiet. We are located next to a wonderful recreational area with forests and walking trails but yet just a short tram ride from the city center. Our area is a quiet residential area, but there are some nice places to go out for food and drinks near by. among them some small authentic 'Heuriger' - typical Viennese wine pubs selling also their own wine.

Our own garden is surrounded by gardens on all sides so it is very relaxing and quiet.

Our home is the perfect hub which allows you to combine exploring Vienna with just relaxing in the garden - something which is especially great with kids - and enjoy a glass of wine on the roof terrace which has sun until late evening.

Our guests from Greece in the summer of 2013 said 2 weeks "was simply not enough".

There is so much to do inside and outside Vienna. (for official site for visitors to Vienna)

Spring / summer trips include:

the magnificent Wachau (UNECSO world heritage site)

the Donau Auen Lovely to get kayak and bikes for a wonderful day out with beautiful nature around you

lakes, including Neusiedlersee (1hr), Mondsee (2.20hrs), Hallstatt (a copy exists in China since 2010). Hallstatt near Mondsee also very beautiful. The lake water quality is excellent!

the Semmering and Schneeberg mountains ca. 1 hour 10 mins from Vienna (

the green lake "Tragoess" in Obersteiermark for lovely walks and spectacular Alpine scenery

the charming village of Gumpoldskirchen (55 - 65min drive).

the wine Region "Süd Steiermark" / Gamlitz. Better known as the "the Tuscany of Austria" (

Bratislava bike trip via the magnificent Donau Auen or on a ship along the Danube (1hour)

for the Kids:
like Eurodisney without the crowds (during week about 10minute wait compared to 1hr in London at Legoland) (65 minute drive)

activity and rock climbing (very safe for kids and well organised). 20 minute car ride

Budapest (ca 280km)

Prague (would be wise to stay one night or even two)
