  • A real home from home

    "My wife and I stayed in this villa for a month, along with our daughter and son-in-law and 2 grandchildren aged 3 years and 8 months. The villa is situated in a quiet residential district, which to my mind is preferable to a dedicated tourist development. The villa is surrounded by a wall and has nice gardens. It felt very safe for our young grandchildren. The quality of the villa is very high and the whole place feels solid. It is decorated with some beautiful pictures and carvings. The beds are large and very comfortable. It very much felt like we were borrowing a house from a friend. There is free wifi, which is not superfast, but perfectly adequate for all normal Internet usage. We were able to make Skype video calls and stream music and video. There is a phone, which can be used to contact Jane or make quick local calls for a taxi or food. There is a 60" HD TV, with a good satellite package and DVD player. The kitchen is well equipped and the only things we had to add were some wine glasses and a sharp cooks knife, as most of the knives were pretty blunt. Things like toilet paper and garbage sacks were provided and there was a washer and dryer that we could use. Outside the pool area is very nice and comfortable and there's an American style gas grill. The maid came every 3 days and was really thorough. The pool was serviced about every 3 days and the gardener came in about once a week. Jane was a delight to deal with and very professional, both before we arrived and during our stay. She replied promptly to both emails and phone calls. There are quite a few good restaurants nearby and a search on Tripadvisor will give you many suggestions. It's as well to search for both Nai Harn and Rawai restaurants as you're situated between both and some restaurants in the same street can be listed under one or the other. There's a German bakery about 5 minutes away by car, which does excellent croissants, bread and pastries. There is also an Italian delicatessen, which is well stocked with hams, salamis, cheeses, oils and wine. For general shopping there is a large Tesco Lotus about 20 minutes away by car. If you require medical attention, the nearby Andaman Clinic is good, with a doctor who speaks very good English. There is also a paediatrician nearby. Our favourite beach was at Yanui, which is between Nai Harn and Rawai and is a nice quiet little beach with a surprisingly good restaurant/bar behind it. I would highly recommend this villa, particularly"

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.

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.
