"We made this apartment our home for a month when our daughter got married in March 2015. It was perfect for us. I’ll try not to repeat what other reviewers have said, but to add details.
Hama’aravim is a pedestrian lane. Car access is blocked from Agron Street by barricades at the delivery entrance to the Waldorf, which served us well as a pull-over spot for loading/unloading passengers, baggage, etc. The lane leads to a large, pretty garden courtyard for the King David apartments which provides an alternate route to King David Street and the YMCA (I used the gym there).
The location was central for sightseeing and restaurants. We went out nearly every night by foot to eat nearby, usually on Shlomtsiyon Ha’Malka Street, which provided better variety and quality than the restaurants in the nearer Mamilla Mall. Besides the Old City, we walked through Moshe Yemen, German Colony and Mea Shearim/Ben Yehuda Street (the last two with taxi assist one direction).
The Waldorf construction is long completed, but now there is work on a new apartment building next door; noise level was ok but should improve when the project is done. No work is done on Shabbat or during the whole week of Pesach.
The laundry machines were better than what we usually get in Europe (the washing machine can be set for a 30 minute load and the dryer dries within a reasonable time). The spacious, bright living/dining room with its high ceilings, large windows and access to the balcony was a cheerful place to gather and relax for family and visitors. It also had plenty of room for the drying rack when the outdoor patio was too cold or damp.
Sharon and Perry continue to be helpful and delightful. For example, Sharon met us at the apartment to explain how everything worked, and Perry arranged for us to pay remotely for a parking meter so that we didn’t have to get up early one morning.
We expect to be returning to Israel as our daughter has made her home there with her husband and hope to be able to return to this great apartment on Hama’aravim."

"The owner struck the perfect balance of being helpful without being intrusive. She also went out of her way to make sure our visit to Jerusalem(not just her apartment) went well. When there was a small problem with the car rental company, instead of telling me what to do, she called for me and quickly solved a problem that would have taken me much longer to fix.
The apartment itself was clean and well located on a quiet street. All in all a great experience."

"We had a wonderful stay at the cottage. It is exactly as pictured and immaculate. Judy and Aaron are excellent hosts and have a great design sense. They made our stay very enjoyable. There were even fresh flowers and cookies that greeted us upon our arrival. The cottage is very tranquil with a small garden in front and a very pleasant patio off the bedroom, perfect for enjoying a glass of wine. It is in the heart of the German colony area of Jerusalem with many restaurants and cafes within a few minutes walk. Both the bed and the sofa bed were comfortable. It is an ideal base for exploring Jerusalem. We would definitely stay here again and will recommend the cottage to our friends who will be coming to Jerusalem."
