  • Above and beyond

    "My husband and I fell in love with Zichron Ya'acov, and much of the magic had to do with our charming cottage and garden in a beautiful, private and quiet setting. We were able to walk to town, and our host, Joanna was a very helpful "concierge" , very willing and able to give advise regarding travel, restaurants, shopping, etc. She was also very accessible when we had any requests or questions. I only hope, given all of the great reviews, that there will be availability when we wish to return!"

  • Abu Tor Rental for Couple

    "This two room rental is perfect for a single or couple. I rented it for my parents who were visiting Jerusalem for 10 days. There is one bedroom with a double bed, and another room that is a living room/kitchen with a pull-out sofa. The apartment has a patio area with a private entrance that opens from the park. The owner keeps the place in very good shape. Everything was clean and good working order - including AC/Heater machines in each room; boiler, fridge, cable tv, internet, etc. It's perfect for anyone looking to spend a few days in Abu Tor; adjacent to a park in a quiet neighborhood, walking distance from Cinematec, Old Train Station, Emek Refaim."

  • A Wonderful to Rent

    "This second floor, large, clean, two bedroom, two bathroom, condo with a fully equipped kosher kitchen and a laundry room is located across the street from San Simone Park in a quiet neighborhood in Old Katemon. It is a 5 minute walk to a supermarket, and a 5-10 minute walk to a number of bus lines. It has WiFi, cable TV, comfortable beds, and Shabbat elevator service. For those who are looking for a long-term home away from home (my wife and I stayed there for a month), this is a perfect place to stay in Jerusalem. I especially liked the very mild aroma in the hallway/stairwell (but not in the condo) of challah being baked Thursday afternoons, chicken soup Friday mornings, and cholent Friday evenings!"

  • Best House For Big Family

    "For 10 years we have spent many holidays in this lovely part of Israel staying in various properties and 5 stars hotels, some good, some not so good. Three years ago we found Villa Anat and our search for the perfect place for our holiday is over. We will be returning for our sixth visit this year - what more can we say? The kitchen, the bed rooms, the living room, garden and the pool the Herzelia Pituach beach near by, the amenities, the tranquility altogether make it the ideal location to spend a relaxing holiday. Beautifully Designed by owners Uri and Anat nothing has been forgotten for the comfort and convenience of guests.We have no hesitation in recommending Villa Anat, for us it is idyllic and it worth every pound we spend!"

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.
