Our home

Our home is located in the suburban town of Gerasdorf, just outside the city limits of Vienna. Besides the two bedrooms, each with a queen+ bed, there are two offices with hi-speed Internet and wireless access; we also have digital satellite TV with channels in many languages. In addition to a living space of ca. 140sqm, there is a full basement and one-car garage plus parking space. The living/dining room opens onto a spacious deck, and there is a balcony outside the master bedroom upstairs. The house is furnished in part with Biedermeier antiques, artwork and Oriental rugs. Our natural garden features wildflowers and fruit trees. Inquire about our Florida condo, too, where we will be based Oct. 2017-March 2018 and which may be available for wintertime exchanges in the US. See the note on time and place preferences.

Who we are

  1. We are an active, retired Austro/American couple and experienced exchangers and house sitters. Guido is a retired software engineer and was in telecommunications management with a major European electronics company; Liz has a Ph.D. in Germanics and Italian and many years of experience in linguistics research, adult and university education. We speak English, German, Italian, French, and basic Spanish. We are scrupulous about keeping a neat and clean household and will do the same for yours. We seek exchanges with similarly well-maintained homes and exchangers who will take good care of our property, too. The garden may require some yardwork during growing season and in the fall, and we will be happy to do any chores that may be necessary in and around your home. Mme. Cat may be in residence, but we can arrange for her to stay elsewhere. We will be happy to take good care of your pets, too. While in Austria, we seek exchanges in France or Italy April-September 2018. During our Florida period Oct. 2017-March 2018, we are interested in exchanges of our Florida condo with NYC, Washington State or a home located in a US/Canadian ski area (Mme. Cat in residence and requiring some TLC). References available on request.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Public transportation and/or park and ride by bus and commuter train or subway to the city are available. Vienna with all its cultural activities - 3 opera houses, 2 main concert halls, countless theatres and museums - is a short ride away, not to mention Salzburg with its festivals, the skiing and lake resorts in western and southern Austria. A gateway to eastern Europe, which is but a stone's throw away, Vienna is conveniently located in the heart of Europe and is a perfect home base from which to explore the rest of the Continent.
