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 Rudolfsheim-Fünfhaus
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!

great quiet location within easy walking distance from underground line that leads to all main sites, lovely bright flat, well equipped, helpful owners. great bakery/café just on the corner. All in all, couldn't find fault with our stay, it was ideal
Super apartment in Vienna!
Apartment was as described and had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The roof top terrace had an OUTSTANDING view of the city. From the apartment to the metro was a short 2 block walk. A grocery store was right next to the metro; very convenient. It was very easy to get around the city from this location.
Great location and property
100m from Johnstraße underground on line 3. Great location. Some good restaurants locally, but be sure to book! I’d recommend Das Augustine.
Everything was perfect except that the property was a little too warm. The heating control is linked to the owners adjacent property so we were limited in our ability to turn down the heating.
That point aside.....everything was excellent.
Great apartment out of the downtown core.
We purposely chose to stay out of the downtown core to get a better sense of everyday living in Vienna. The location was a short walk to efficient transport to Stephansplatz. Also nearby is a grocery store and bakery/restaurant. The apartment was as depicted and we felt safe walking back from the subway at night. We arrived just before midnight and were greeted by our great host. Things I would do differently were I to repeat: arrange for cream/milk for our coffee and bring shampoo and conditioner. That said, I sipped the coffee provided as the sun shone into the windows of the apartment (after I opened the automated blinds). If you don’t want to be amongst the noise of the city action we highly recommend this apartment.
Great multi-cultural Viennese neighborhood
We loved this apartment for its location--easy walk to Schonbrunn, great bakery at the corner, 1 block from the metro and supermaket, walk to Viennese restaurants as well as excellent Turkish. And the apartment was spacious, full of sunlight, and super quiet. Will look up Monika & Eric's apartment when we visit Vienna again.
Modern apartment in Vienna
This is a beautiful and comfortable modern apartment in a multicultural neighborhood in Vienna. Metro transportation is easy and accessible. The apartment is reasonably priced. Recommended without hesitation
Enjoy the bustling market hall around the corner (“Meislmarkt”), selling fresh foods, fruits and vegetables from all over Europe, as well as the myriad of ethnic restaurants nearby with an eastern European and Turkish flair.
Stroll over to the “Schmelz” Park and visit the old-fashioned beer garden (Schutzhaus) where the locals go in the summer for a Schnitzel and a pint-sized “Krügel”. Walk 20 minutes down to the Schönbrunn Palace where the Habsburgs maintained their summer residence, and visit the great zoo with the kids while you’re there.
Walk 2 minutes to the subway or jump on the tram and take a 10-minute ride into the thriving, fashionable 7th district with its galleries, quirky shops and bohemian restaurants and bars.
