Recent Israel reviews

  • Calm and lovely oasis

    "This house is truly a gem in a lovely location. Our family of 4 stayed for almost 3 weeks and enjoyed it as a comfortable home base very much. The layout of the home is perfect for a family or those needing some spaciousness (especially while recovering from jet-lag this was especially welcome - since our children were up at every hour day and night while adjusting!) - the kitchen is well equipped, there is a lovely dining room table and we often cooked/ate meals at home. There is also an incredible yard with herbs, fruit trees, flowers and a view of the Mediterranean in the distance. The owner is an artist and her beautiful decor and peaceful aesthetic makes the whole house feel calming. We found Zichron Yaakov itself is the best location in all of Israel for a vacation - with its gorgeous pedestrian mall, artistic shops, coffee houses, etc. The nearby nature preserve (Ramat HaNadiv) not only has amazing gardens to walk through, but also has a restaurant set in an idillic location with one of the nicest playgrounds I've ever been to - so, the kids could play while we relaxed and ate. Beautiful beaches nearby (our favorite was the aqueduct beach in Ceasarea) We have rented many VRBO properties around the world, and this was one of the nicest - highly recommended!"

  • Incredible penthouse apartment in Old Jaffa

    "When walking into the penthouse apartment we were in awe at the fantastic location, sea view, Tel Aviv skyline and contemporary interior design. Having a washer and dryer in the apartment was a plus along with excellent wifi. The location of this apartment is phenomenal. I don't think you can get any better than this. Restaurants and shops in old Jaffa were just a 5 minute walk. Definitely one of the highlights of our stay here was being able to enjoy breakfast out on the patio over looking the sea view and at night overlooking the lights from the Tel Aviv skyline. Thank you Dor for all your help and being available with any questions and making our stay in Old Jaffa amazing! We look forward to returning next year!"

  • SUPERBE APPARTEMENT

    "Appartement très propre, lumineux, spacieux très bien équipé, situé dans une belle résidence avec ascenseur. Très bonne literie - lit king size, buanderie, machine à glaçons et surtout une très belle vue sur Tel Aviv avec sa sublime terrasse que nous utilisions le matin au petit déjeuner et le soir. Beaucoup trop de tapis que nous avons roulés dès nos arrivée et avons fait attention aux nombreux objets de décoration. L'accueil par la propriétaire était très chaleureux. Nous garderons un très bon souvenir de cette semaine de vacances. De nombreux restaurants à proximité et nous étions à environ 10' de l'Hotel Hilton. C'est sûr que nous aimerions y retourner si nous devons encore séjourner à Tel Aviv."

  • Friendly and helpful hosts to a stranger in a strange land

    "Matty is one of the best hosts I have encountered in many VRBO-type rentals. Got him up at the crack of dawn (sorry!) and he most graciously ran through everything on the spot; took me at my word that I would pay on arrival (no deposit) and made sure I had what I needed - directions to places, free parking (a challenge in Jerusalem!), amenities (laundry, shopping, grocery, post, cambio). The house itself is a well-converted utility building of some sort and fully functional. I would have liked some more towels, but that's hardly a big deal. All the basic kitchen and bed/bath needs were there, along with cable, maps, WiFi, etc. The two dogs are characters! (they bark a little but only when disturbed by intruders, and quickly quiet down). The owners had a small gathering while I was there, kindly invited me, and gave me the leftover watermelon (very welcome in the heat)! All in all - if it's "next year in Jerusalem" or some subsequent year, I would stay in a heartbeat."

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.

Travel Tips and Advice for Israel

Travelers need to be aware that while most areas are safe for travel, there is an ongoing conflict in the Gaza region. Travel to this area is highly restricted and visitors are advised against traveling there. In areas like Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, there are many international tourists and it is advised to simply be aware of your surroundings and vigilant about your personal safety.
