Property description

Vacation Rental where you can feel completely at home. 2 bedrooms (one with king and one with queen-sized, 1 twin bed and baby's crib and there is a queen-sized sofa bed in the living room), kitchen opening to living/dining room, entry hall, bath with bathtub with shower, separate WC with wash basin. Lots of closet and cupboard space for your use. Sleeps 4-7
Steiners' in Gumpendorf is newly renovated and furnished (August, 2009). It is a light – filled 95 sq m. (1023 sq. ft.), on the 6th floor (US 7th floor) with elevator. Built in the 70s it is set back behind a front building and therefore screened from any street noise. None of the other buildings are close and the view is of building roofs and tree tops.

The apartment is fully furnished, some modern, some antiques. We have internet and wifi and 2 cell phones and a computer for your use, cable TV and CD player. The kitchen is set up for complete at-home cooking and includes all new appliances: large refrigerator, stove, microwave, dishwasher, Bosch food processor, filter coffee maker, toaster, juicer, blender as well as a large selection of casseroles, pots, and pans and lots of cupboards and work space. There are complete sets of tableware and kitchen utensils as well as Egyptian cotton linens. Maps, dictionaries, and guidebooks are there for your use as well as other reading material, puzzles, and games. The washer and dryer are enclosed in a closet in bedroom #2. The apartment has central heating and is warm and cozy in winter.

We looked at many apartments before buying this one which we loved because of its quiet and light-filled, spacious rooms. As you can see from their reviews our guests enjoy being in the apartment, in the old non-touristy neighborhood with banks, shops, and excellent restaurants steps away, Public transportation is excellent with the bus to downtown around the corner, the subway a 3-4 minute walk, and a taxi stand at the front door. A small supermarket is on the ground floor of our building. And, of course, the neighborhood is completely safe for walking alone or at night.

I give my guests our 'tourist tips' developed by my husband, a Viennese, and me.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: The apartment is owned by Hans and Judith Steiner. We live in Palo Alto, California, but Hans is from Vienna. He is a Professor at Stanford University and as retirement is coming soon, he hopes to spend more time in Vienna. Judith is a retired executive director of an environmental nonprofit and has thoroughly enjoyed remodeling and furnishing an apartment with future guests in mind. We have three grown children who also love Vienna and our 33-year old with his wife were the first to stay in the apartment. We were happy to hear that not only people of our generation love the neighborhood, but the 30-year-olds do too.

Why the Owner Chose Vienna:
Hans grew up in the neighborhood and we love to visit to take advantage of Vienna's special 'gemutlichkeit.' The Gumpendorf neighborhood where we are is a wonderful example of a 'gut buergerlich' (bourgeois) district with all the amenities that entails. But now young people are moving in, so there are not only traditional 'Gasthaus'es and wine gardens, but internet cafes, little bars, restaurants with updated Viennese cuisine. There are still old-fashioned shops - an excellent butcher, a sublime bakery, green grocers, and much more. And there is a supermarket right in the building. We eat well!

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Steiners' Gumpendorf is just around the corner from Bus 57a which comes every 10 minutes and takes about 7 minutes where it ends at the Ringstrasse, just at the Museum Quarter, and from there it is one subway stop or a short walk to the Opera or to Stephansplatz, the center of Vienna and the oldest district. At the other end of the 57a line, a short walk takes you to Schönbrunn Palace, the glorious baroque summer palace of the Hapsburgs with its park and gardens. The famous Naschmarkt with culinary delights, fresh organic produce, lively restaurants and a Saturday flea market is in the neighborhood. The famous shopping street, Mariahilferstrasse, is the next street parallel to Gumpendorferstrasse. The great amusement park, the Prater, can be easily reached by U-Bahn. Vienna is rich with things to do from the opera and concerts to swimming in the Danube, from wine tasting in a nearby wine village to extraordinary variety of museums. Hike opporotunities abound and all are reachable by cheap, fast, clean, and safe public transit. Vienna is consistently listed as one of the most liveable cities in the world. And our apartment is in the heart of it.
