Beautiful apartment on the shady side of a recent building (2008) within a short 5-7 minute walk from the beautiful beach in Bat Yam, a Tel Aviv suburb just south of Jaffa. The apartment is on a very quiet street in the center of town, in a nice neighborhood near City Hall, with shops, grocery stores, small parks all right downstairs. Downtown Tel Aviv is a 10-15 minute drive, or a short bus-ride from Bat Yam.
Owner Description:: My wife (Parisienne) and I (American ex-pat) have been vacationing in Israel for years and finally bought this great apartment near Tel Aviv so we and our children would have a permanent pied-à-terre in the Holy Land.
Why the Owner Chose Bat Yam:: We chose Bat Yam because it's right on the sea and is away from the hustle-bustle of Tel Aviv, yet close enough to get easily to our favorite Tel Aviv restaurants, museums, and shops in less than half-an-hour. Also, this small suburb has been getting better and better over the last 10 years and is safe and friendly. We chose to buy a new apartment while it was still under construction and they did a beautiful job.
The Unique Benefits of this Condo:: The apartment is spacious and quiet and the neighbors are very friendly, mostly permanent residents. Off-street parking under the building is a great boon during the tourist season when parking spaces are at a premium on the street.
