  • Great experience in German Colony

    "After looking at many properties, we decided to rent this apartment in the German Colony. In addition to answering the VRBO listing, we spoke to the owners and the rental agent. The apartment was beautiful and bright. It had a kosher kitchen, and a washer and dryer, which were important to us. It was beautifully decorated. The location was just a few blooks off Emek Rafraim street in the heart of the German Colony. The walk to the Old City and Ben Yehuda area were about 20 minutes each, so it was very centrally located. It was very nice having the rental agent living below the apartment for any questions or issues we might have had. We needed some minor repairs, which were done immediately. We would love to rent this apartment again in a future trip to Israel."

  • Ultimate Jerusalem Getaway

    "Walking into this apartment after an extremely long plane trip with kids, we felt so relaxed and exhaled. This apartment was bathed in light, the floors so clean, and in the backdrop a stunning panoramic view of the old city of Jerusalem. My wife and I were travelling with our children and wanted to stay in an apartment so that we could have some meals at home, and even host some guests on Shabbat. The linens were new and clean, everything in the kitchen washed and new, and the apartment is well appointed and cared for. The property manager made sure to have a basket of fresh fruits waiting for us, milk and bottles of water in the fridge, and even some snacks for the kids. We really appreciated it, because when we arrived we just wanted to relax for a few minutes before running out to a restaurant. Rivka, the property manager was there, showed us how everything worked, and made sure the be available to us "24/7". This kitchen was kosher which was very important for us, everything clearly marked meat or milk. I also enjoyed the nespresso machine which I used all the time. The couch in the living room and other furniture all looks very new, actually the apartment itself is probably new. There were two balconies in the aparment which we used all the time, to read or have a glass of wine. Despite the fact that the apartment is in a very central location, the floor to ceiling windows must have been sound proof because we didnt hear anything! There is also a roof top terrace that we didn't spend much time on, but it was stunning, with olive and pomegranite trees and a table and some chairs, the view was probably as good as it gets in jerusalem. Usually I have stayed in hotels in israel in the past, because I love the breakfast in Israel. But I was happy staying in the apartment because of it's location right in the mamilla mall. You just take the elevator downstairs and there are literally tons of restaurants right there, of every type. There was also a large grocery store up the street, and the old city was a 2 minute walk. I would definitely repeat, I've rented many times through VRBO, and rarely seen owners take the type of care that I saw here."

Israel Travel Tips

Getting to Israel Vacation Rentals

The main entry point into Israel is the Ben Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv. Technically, the airport is located 12 miles southeast of the city but there is good access provided by public transportation and private taxis. There are also airport shuttles operated by the national airline. The airport hosts frequent commercial flights from most major cities in Europe and Africa. When traveling to Israel, you need to be aware that they have very strict security measures. Expect delays upon arrival and to have your bags thoroughly searched. When checking in for your flight home, allocate an extra hour for security checks. Israel also has two major seaports and many people arrive in Israel as part of a Mediterranean cruise. Ashdod and Haifa are the main cruise ports; however, smaller vessels may be able to dock at the marinas in Tel Aviv and Eilat.

Visitors to Vacation Apartments in Israel

Israel holds great significance for three of the major world religions, namely Christianity, Judaism and Islam. Many people from their various religions make pilgrimages to Israel, in particular Jerusalem, each year. There are many historical sites that hold cultural significance and are genuinely interesting to visit. It is a country that blends ancient traditions and history with a more modern culture. The cities of Tel Aviv and Jerusalem are examples of this contrast. Israel also has some excellent beaches along its Mediterranean coastline. Sun lovers flock to the beaches and warm climate in the summer months.

Major Sightseeing Attractions near Israel Lodging

The old city of Jerusalem, the Dome of the Rock and the Western Wailing Wall are three of the country's most famous landmarks. Of particular interest to Christian travelers are a number of the historical sites in Jerusalem. There is the Stations of the Cross which mark various points along the road where Christ carried the cross to the outskirts of the city. Then there is also the Garden of Gethsemane and the tomb that have been well preserved as religious landmarks. Golgotha, or the place of the skull can be seen just outside of Jerusalem's old city.

Throughout Jerusalem, there are various chapels, churches and shrines marking places believed to be of historical significance. For Jewish visitors, the most visited feature in Jerusalem is the Western Wall, otherwise also known as the Wailing Wall. The wall is where devout Jews congregate to pray for the restoration of Israel. Their prayer requests are written on pieces of paper and stuffed into the cracks of the wall. Just for the experience, it is well worth visiting. The Dead Sea is so named because of its extremely high salt content. Visitors can experience floating in the sea and enjoy a beauty therapy treatment at one of the local spas. Dead Sea mud is known worldwide for its healing properties. If it is beaches that you are looking for, the bright lights of Tel Aviv is the place to be. There is a great beach vibe here. During the day, you can relax on the beach and in the evenings enjoy the nightlife.
