Bedrooms 1
Space 550 sq. ft.
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

1 Bedroom, Living Room With Kitchen, 1 Bathroom With Shower, Terraces With View

This new, modern, 55 square meter (550 square ft.) penthouse loft with 2 outdoor terraces, built on top of a late 19th century apartment building in Vienna’s 15th, or “Fünfhaus” District, is owned and designed by an American, Harvard-educated architect.

Located on a quiet street in Vienna’s most multicultural district, the apartment is perfect for those looking for a unique place to stay in an interesting, diverse, up-and-coming neighborhood, removed from the typical downtown tourist areas.

Not to suggest that the apartment is in the middle of nowhere: it is only a 20-minute walk to the Schönbrunn Palace; a 3-Minute walk to the underground U3 subway station, bus, tram & taxi stand; a 10-15-Minute Subway ride to all major attractions and historical sites in the heart of the city, as well as in the thriving, fashionable 7th district (St. Stephan’s Cathedral, Vienna State Opera House, Ringstrasse, Mariahilferstrasse, Spittelberg, Museumsquartier); and a 5-Minute subway ride to the Westbahnof train station with regional / international train and airport bus connections.

This sleek, state-of-the-art loft faces a quiet courtyard and includes a large, beautifully designed bathroom with a toilet and shower, spacious living room with a fully-equipped kitchen and HDTV, and a cozy bedroom separated from the living room with sliding doors.

And to “top” it off: both living room and bedroom have direct access through large glass doors to a secluded apartment-level terrace, which is connected to another upper roof terrace with lounge chairs for relaxing in the sun and enjoying the beautiful view of Vienna!

The apartment is ideal for romantic getaways for couples, vacations for small families, as well as business trips for executives.

About Monika Makowicka

I (the owner) am an American-born, Harvard-educated architect. I grew up in New York City, and have been living and working in Vienna for over 20 years. My firm, which I founded with 2 Austrian partners, specializes in building luxury penthouse apartments in Vienna.

Monika Makowicka purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Monika Makowicka chose Vienna

As an architect and part-time developer, I fell in love with Vienna because of its fantastic architecture, culture, and urban amenities. I personally and specifically hand-picked this property (at that time, an empty attic space) in Vienna’s 15th district, which is Vienna's most multicultural neighborhood, and reminds me of the diverse ethnic areas of New York City where I grew up during my youth. The area is quickly being developed, but at the same time maintains an authentic feel not found in other touristic parts of the city. The street is very safe, and the neighbors are friendly. Also, the excellent public transportation connections (subway, tram), which are just a 2-minute walk away, make it an ideal place to reside.

What makes this apartment unique

My tenant, the beautiful and friendly Monika, rents, manages and administrates the apartment and lives next door on the same level with her young son, Adrian, in the adjacent penthouse loft. She is a native of Vienna, and will take great care of you. And I'm quite sure you'll enjoy relaxing on the spacious outdoor terrace spaces after a long day exploring this beautiful city!

You won't be disappointed.

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful owner, an outstanding flat, in a great location. You can't beat the location of this flat. It is located less than 2 blocks from the U-3 U-Bahn, which will get you to anywhere you need to go. The neighborhood is quiet and anything you could need from food to shopping is just a few minutes walk. The apartment is well equipped and the pictures accurately depict the apartment. We received prompt responses to messages before and during our visit. Our security deposit was quickly refunded after the visit.

All of the comments dated before ours regarding the owner, the apartment and the location, are accurate. You won't be disappointed if you rent this flat from Monika.

Superb Stay in Vienna

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a 2 1/2 week trek through Central Europe, beginning with 4 excellent nights at this beautifully designed flat.

The apartment is terrific, as the pictures accurately show, and it is very well stocked with all the essentials one needs. It was perfectly clean, very comfortable and stylish, and made for a terrific respite from the heatwave Vienna seemed to experience for the four days of our visit.

Public transport is close, as are local eateries and markets.

As we had but 4 days in this large and spread out city, our only complaint was that we didn't have enough time to relax and enjoy the apartment itself. The balconies were very inviting!

Last, and certainly not least, the hosts, Monika and Erik were extremely nice. Communication was excellent at all times, and we felt very welcome in their flat. Thank you so much guys. You're the tops!

Highly recommended.
