A wonderful week in Jaffa

  • 5 of 5

This place is like a little oasis. We traveled with our two little kids and the apartment was the perfect place to unwind after a busy day on the beach or in the city. Our hosts Issy and Paula made us feel so welcome and we enjoyed their cozy place, garden and generous hospitality. The place is clean, friendly and quiet. The first night we arrived late and our fridge was filled with groceries - what a treat!

Next time in Israel? Definitely back to this place!

Wonderful apartment in the heart of Jaffa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely apartment for almost 4 weeks with our 3 young children (8, 5, and 5 years old). It is perfectly situated, 5 minutes from the old city of Jaffa and a 20 minute walk (or 10 minute bus ride) from the heart of Tel Aviv. We felt close to the action but not caught up in the chaos of Tel Aviv. The apartment is in a beautiful, old Jaffa house, on a quiet street. We easily slept five of us (3 kids in the bedroom and 2 in the convertible living room - this could have been reversed). The space was clean, well outfitted, and well maintained, with a bathroom and separated eat-in kitchen.

Issy and Paula are fantastic hosts - warm, welcoming, helpful, and careful to support where needed and give space where needed.

We stayed here at the start of a 6 month family trip, and it was the perfect landing ground. A space to relax, settle in, and enter travel and explore Israel at our own pace. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!

quiet, cozy and in the heart of the town

  • 5 of 5

We (parents with 15 years old daughter) loved it!

The description is accurate, the apartment is cozy, clean and well-maintained. All you need is in proximity. You don't need a car to discover the picturesque Jaffa and Tel Aviv, the beautiful,

With a car you can reach Haifa, Jerusalem, Masada, Akko etc, in a short time.

We loved the very interesting and pleasent conversation with our wonderful hosts Paula and Issy. We learnt a lot about history, politics, tradition, languages... Thank you so much!

We can warmly rcommend this property to everybody.

Memorable holidays in cosy house with best hosts

  • 5 of 5

By the end of May we were utterly tired of a hectic city life and were dreaming of a lovely and quiet place where our family with 10 years old daughter could spend two weeks. In addition we wanted it would be Israel. We found that beginning of summer is a right time to go there.

Surfing the Internet we decided that Jaffa could be the best location for us - next to Tel Aviv, but looks different- has no high buildings, no big traffic, but still at close quarters to everything.

With help of we found a lovely apartments. We fell in love with it at the first sight. But when we arrived it turned out that the reality exceeded our expectations.

The house was so cosy, so perfect in its difference from all this modern polished apartments we saw in internet. Inside we had everything for comfortable stay , everything was in their right places. The kitchenette was not large but thoroughly equipped. We felt like at home. That was amazing!!!

All we need outside the house was in proximity: uncrowded public beach, Jaffa Old City , harbor with huge amount places to eat, flee market, Tel Aviv embankment. When we wanted to cook for yourself we went to butcher's shop, fish shop or groceries -all fresh!!, the best hummusaria in Jaffa was down the street, and famous bakery in 5 minutes walk. And we had the best BBQ in the shade of the trees in the backyard garden. I think you like it already:)

But for sure it would be not possible without our hosts! A man made a place beautiful! This is absolutely true! For sure we were fortunate to meet Issy and Paula. So friendly, positive, hospitable, energetic, open and delicate, intelligent and modest. They let us be on our own when we needed it but always stood by and were ready to give a hand. They advised how and where to go and what to see around and in the country and their tips were very helpful. Dear Issy and Paula, we miss you so much! We remind our evenings when we've been sitting in your garden, talking about everything. Our best wishes to Frida! Sitting with her and listening her stories we touched the unknown lay of history. That was so merit, we were really impressed! We are missing all of you, and you hospitality, and your cosy house.

Thank you one more time for let us come to you and for all you did for us.

Hope to see you again soon.
