  • Fantastic Apartment rental

    "Hello, I am writing to report that my experiences renting with Colony Suites was excellent. The person I interacted with, Linda, was always quick to reply to my questions and send me all the details about the apartment I wanted. All the interactions were smooth and easy. Even more importantly, the apartment I chose was as gorgeous as the pictures I saw online. When I told people with experience renting in Israel that I rented a great apartment they all said, “wait till you get there; they are rarely as nice as they seem.” Well, the skeptics were wrong—the apartment was even more wonderful in person than it had been in the photos. We stayed there for 2 weeks and I was very pleased that the management sent in someone to clean after our first week, and that was included in our rental costs. Enjoy your stay!"

  • Can't wait to go back to Jerusalem

    "This apartment is a great place to stay in Jerusalem. The apartment is comfortable, beautifully decorated, spacious, clean, warm and inviting. The location is fabulous..just a few minutes walk from Emek Refaim and Bakka. Close to all the stores and restaurants. Shiirley, the custodian, is a pleasure to deal with and extremely thoughtful and helpful. The kitchen is well stocked and we felt very comfortable using everything for our Shabbat stay. I would definitely recommend this apartment and look forward to staying there again in the future."

  • Wow! Wonderful place...Excellent hosts...

    "Stayed for a week. The apartment is just as beautiful as the pictures. We had a hard time dragging ouselves away from the lounge chairs and the pool. Incredible views of Tel Aviv by day and by night. Ron and Shoshi are wonderful people and excellent hosts...they are there when you need them, and not there when you don't. They went out of their way to make our stay perfect...Always willing to accommodate any special requests. Our young adult children joined us and we had a great family time. Pool was impeccably kept, and the lighting at night throughout the expansive deck was just great. Location couldn't be better. Just a few minutes walk to the beach, 24 hour supermarket across the street, and close to wonderful restaurants...try the Mex & Co Mexican place around the corner on Ben Yehuda st...great burritos and margaritas. All in all a great one-of-a-kind luxurious apartment, in a great location, with great hosts! Thank you...looking forward to seeing you both again...."

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.
