We had such a wonderful stay in Haifa. We absolutely fell in love with the apartment. It was everything we expected, and MUCH MORE! The view was spectacular, and Miriam was on the ball with providing all the amenities we could have wanted. We had a lovely time and hope to be able to visit again!

Owner response: Thank you so much Melissa. I wish I could meet some of the guests myself, but I guess I will have to leave that pleasure to Riva. Sorry we did not meet, since we had so many communications between us, with embarrassing mistakes (in the math department) on my part...Thanks again, and please come again. Best regards, Miriam

Dear Miriam, I took the Review, but I would be sure that you will get the feed back. I t was absolutley wonderful to stay in your house. We felt like "at home". We are visiting Israel for more than 30 years and we never had such a beautiful accommodation. Thank you! There is nothing you can do better. Everything we needed had been in the apartement. It was totaly clean. Every thing was perfect for us. Sure we will comme back again! :) And we will give your adress to friends who wants to visit Haifa.- With regards Regina

Strongly recommended. Nice, clean, well equipped flat. One of the best places in Haifa close to Bahai's garden. A lot of trees and flowers around. Amazing view from the terrace. Car parking within 100 ?eters all day round. Perfect!

My husband and I stayed in this spacious, well equipped apartment for 10 days. There are two bedrooms, which was good because our 21-year son stayed with us for most of these days. Although we used the kitchen only for breakfast, it had all the necessary appliances and devices to make meals conveniently. There was a washing machine, which we used, and a dryer, but we line dried our clothes. Having internet access was handy, and air-conditioning was very helpful, especially during the hot, humid days. The patio offered beautiful views of the sea (if the unsightly port views can be ignored). The apartment is walking distance to the Bahai gardens and it's relatively close to the Carmel centre, which has restaurants and shopping facilties; however, those who do not have a car may find public transportation a bit difficult especially at night. The owner was easy to deal with - she answered my questions before I booked. The manager also responded quickly to a couple of issues while we were at the apartment. Since we liked our stay, we would definitely recommend this property to friends and relatives and would book here again.

Owner response: Dear Josie, Your sincere review with updated information for the next travelers is very thoughtful. I do hope you will be able to come again in the future or send this website to your good friends. My only regret is that I do not get to meet any of visitors personally. Thanks so much, sincerely, Miriam
This apartment and its owners exceeded all my expectations in all ways. Owner met us on time to check in. Apartment itself in excellent condition, clean with new appliances, everything worked. The view from the balcony alone, will take your breath away. We’ve stayed for a three days and enjoyed every minute of it. I would defiantly recommend anybody who is visiting Haifa and stay in this place.

A Rare Find
A Rare Find
The description of the apartment is entirely accurate in its details, but probably understates how wonderful the apartment really is. The traveler will be pleasantly surprised. You will enter through a colorful garden to the apartment, which is bathed in light entering from several large windows in the living room and dining room/kitchen. The view of Haifa harbor is breathtaking, stretching along the coastline to Lebanon. It is superior to the view from the Haifa lookouts to which our relatives took us. The room-sized terrace has the same view, and is perfect for dining, drinks, photography or just conversation. Its northern exposure keeps it cool during much of the daily heat. The bedrooms also have large windows, equipped with black-out curtains, and are very quiet at night. The floors are beautifully tiled, as are the bathroom walls, and the dominant colour everywhere, on walls and furniture, is light and bright. The pottery and kitchen utensils on the walls, both functional and decorative, as well as the Klee and Kandinsky reproductions, are upscale and stylish, as is the flat-screen TV and the oriental style area rugs. The whole apartment communicates thoughtfulness, simplicity, and good taste, including the desk in the hallway, the white and black stools throughout the apartment, the mirrored design closets, and even the easy latches in the sliding windows. The traveler should be alert to three considerations, however: the parking on the street, which was easy for us during our stay, could possibly be difficult at other, busier times; the descent to the apartment from the street over 24 stairs could inhibit access to motor impaired travelers or guests (as it did for one of our relatives who walks with a cane); and the hot water takes special priming in advance (which unfortunately did not work for us). Riva, the caretaker, speaks Hebrew and good English, and is readily accessible, friendly, and helpful. The owner, Miriam, is a delight. Overall, this apartment is a rare find, attractive and well priced, and we would be happy to rent it again.

Owner response: Dear John, As you can see your review went through and it is very much appreciated. Thanks also for your seperate e-mail to make sure your review was posted. I am very grateful that you took the time to write such a detailed review. As you might know by now, we are not going to rent again for such a short time, but I am happy you had the chance to enjoy your stay. We both hope that you will make this your home any time you will be in Israel. Thanks so much, Miriam

We had a great time in this beautiful and really completely furnished Haifa apartment. I’ve been in many holiday apartments but this one is clearly one of the best and I’m looking forward to come again at another time...

Owner response: Thank you again for taking the time to write your review. Hope to see you next year again. Best regards, Miriam
We enjoyed our stay in the apartment very much. It is spacious, light, and well equipped with everything one might need. Everything was clean and well-kept. The location is excellent with good public transport connections to many important points in Haifa (bus lines 23 and 115, see Egged homepage for details). The highlight is the balcony offering a gorgeous view over the bay, the port, and the lower parts of the city. Riva was a great help on many occasions; she takes care of everything excellently. We stayed for almost two months, and we loved each day in the apartment. We hope to come back one time. Highly recommended.

About the owner: I grew up in this house since we immigrated to Israel in 1949. We lived on the lower apartment, where my brother is living now, and this apartment was my parents office. My parents had a real estate office there named Signon-Szamosi.
Why the Owner Chose Haifa:
I live in the US now for almost 30 years. I kept that apartment for myself, so I can visit more often and for longer times as I approach retirement. Several years ago I totaly renovated the office to be used as a retreat apartment. I especialy love the thick stone walls and the high ceilings. This is one of the best locations in Haifa, it is tucked away on a very quiet street.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Early in the morning you can watch the sun rise and at night all the sparkling lights of the harbor and down town Haifa. The view is never boring since you can watch the boats coming and going.
