  • Comfy apartment in a really cool neighberhood

    "We so much enjoyed our stay at this very clean and comfortable apartment in the German Colony. It's location was perfect for us, just minutes from the Old City. Public transport was readily available, or a cab if you choose. The owner, Benyamin, got us all set up and familiar with the area when we arrived at the apartment. There are many very nice outdoor cafe's up and down the street just seconds away. Loved having a coffee on the balcony in the morning, and a glass of wine to finish the day in the evening. Our only regret was we didn't stay longer, next time we will. You certainly can't go wrong staying here, was very nice."

  • Great location in Tel Aviv

    "We stayed 4 nights in this cool, modern apartment. Location is right in the center of Tel Aviv and 2 minute walk to beach. Apartment is clean and comes with washer/dryer and a parking space. This is my 2nd time renting here and I would certainly rent again at this location."

  • Charming Accommodations in Great Jerusalem Neighborhood

    "My husband and I stayed in this suite for a week in early September 2014. It was a first trip to Jerusalem for us, and we were looking for a central location, since we usually walk or take public transportation. The location of the suite was perfect--we walked to the Old City, the Market, Germantown, the old train station, the Israel Museum, and more, all quite easily. The neighborhood is quiet and safe, and the garden location of the suite is charming. We loved opening the gate at night, and returning to the peaceful surroundings. The suite is spacious, the bed comfortable, the flat screen TV a perk, and the kitchen well-equipped for light cooking. The owners live next door to the suite, and they are friendly but non-intrusive. They told us where to find neighborhood coffee shops and restaurants and helped with directions when needed. All in all, I highly recommend this property. Friends of ours have already stayed there on our recommendation. My only word of advice is to use the railing on the steps to the loft bedroom at night (this from a woman who shattered her shoulder in the States and can't be too careful)."

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

Depending on where you are staying in Israel, there are many sightseeing attractions. 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.
