The space


I own the apartment and it is available for a minimum two night stay. It is an entire floor, 70 sq. meters, in a hundred year old house that is situated in the inner court of the apartment houses lining the surrounding streets. Because of this, it is absolutely quiet. The court has large, shady trees, with birds in the warmer weather.
There are two large rooms with high ceilings (bedroom and living room) on the wings of the house, with a modern kitchen, bathroom and hallway in the center between the two large rooms. I've attractively and artistically designed the place, as I think the photos show. There are a number of pieces reflecting my interest in the Arab world, particularly Palestine, where I have traveled extensively and been involved for over thirty years. The master bedroom has a comfortable double bed, plus an attractive futon couch which opens to sleep two. In the living room, the large, oversized couch (see photo) is flat and comfortable, and has easily slept two adults. So really, six people could sleep, but for a number of days, four people would be a more comfortable number. All bedding covers provided.
The apartment is very convenient to the inner city, also known as Old Vienna, or the First District. This is where most of Vienna's famous buildings, monuments and sites are. I am 1.5 blocks from the #43 tram, which is then only five stops away from the Ringstrasse, the border of the inner city. It is a ten minute tram ride, or, a nice thirty minute walk through the student area bordering the University of Vienna. If you take the tram in the direction opposite the inner city, you'll wind up at the end of the tram line, and near the famous Vienna woods.
There are many restaurants and supermarkets in the immediate area, especially in Yppenplatz, two blocks away. An Do is an outstanding fish restaurant there, and Kent is a very reasonable Turkish restaurant with a casual, even family style atmosphere. There is an open air Turkish style market in Yppenplatz also, next to the Turkish bakery with a huge brick oven for fresh baked bread.
To hook up with the world class Vienna UBahn system, take the #43 tram toward Old Vienna and get off after just one stop to transfer to the UBahn line #6. This puts the whole city in the palm of your hand via the easy to use network of subway, trams and buses.


Cable TV

House Rules

House rules are pretty simple, but important:
Make sure all doors to all buildings are closed after you enter.
Keep the noise down after 10 p.m.
No shoes inside the apartment. These should be removed, and replaced with house slippers, in the front entrance area of the flat.
No smoking whatsoever inside the building anywhere.
Don't grab hold of thin bar holding up shower curtain. Use the several handrails instead.
Rinse the hair catch screen in bathtub after EACH AND EVERY shower.
Generally respect the order and cleanliness with how the apartment is when you arrived.
During cold weather, heat thermostat is NOT to be turned above the 20 degree celsius setting. At night, turn down to 15 or it'll be too warm to sleep.
No more than TWO showers per person, per day.
Any questions for repairs, see Astrid in the flat on the first level (first door) as you enter the back, yellow building.

Carl's apartment looked exactly like the photos and how he described it. Even though Carl was not there, someone was able to let us in the apartment and show us how everything functioned. The location was also ideal because it was only a couple blocks away from the public transpo…

Carl's house was very nice and comfortable, we really enjoyed our stay at his place. It's 25min. away from the city center but has a tram line right in front of it with good connection to everywhere in Vienna. The house is exactly as it looks in the pictures, very clean and cosy…

Response from Carl:
Hiba, Thanks for the tip about the poster of the Saudi mosque...never considered that. Rather, my intention with all of the visuals is to make an impression on everyone, even my friends and acquaintances in Vienna who might come over, about the Middle East. We may well get back to Jerusalem to pick olives some October. If so, would be nice to meet up with you. We'd be based in the Austrian hospice in the old city, but would appreciate a tour of Sheikh Jarrah. Send me a contact email for yourself that is long term, and we may surprise you some autumn. My regular email is the following: (Email hidden by Airbnb) We are also building a house in Greece (staying at it for the first time) which we will be renting out several weeks of the year. It is on Karpathos, on the perimeter of Europe, just south of Rhodos. From the east and south coast of the island there is nothing but ocean separating the Middle East and North Africa. All the best, Carl and Dagmar

Both the host and the flat were great. All our arrangment worked out fine and it was ease to get around Vienna (a subway station was like 5 min away). We would like to come again
