About Owner/Property Manager

Our youngest son and his family live in Israel. We decided to buy an apartment where we would feel comfortable and where our kids would feel comfortable. The huge wall of windows let in the natural light and the wonderful Jerusalem air.

Owner/Property Manager purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Jerusalem

We are very centrally located and within walking distance to most places. There is a bus stop at the corner, several playgrounds nearby, we are near shopping and near our friends.

What makes this apartment unique

We wanted to buy an apartment that we could renovate to our taste. The view from the living room is beautiful. Our apartment is an open concept design with full, natural light.

Very satisfied

  • 5 of 5

I first rented this apartment in December 2013. It is a deluxe apartment, period. The owners have gone to great lengths to reconstruct this unit from the ground up. Everything has been replaced, ceilings, floors, windows, door, plumbing, electrical. Everything is done to a high standard. After we stayed there the first time my wife complained that we needed to remodel our own home; it cost me a fortune, what can I say? The beds and towels and showers are at the level of a luxury hotel, and I am speaking of US and not Israeli standards. The building, although older, is very clean and well maintained. If you are unable to walk to major Jerusalem attractions you may want to think twice. You will find noticeable grades on Derech Azza and Agron streets. However, the walk to the attractions is interesting and invigorating. For those who wish to cook, there is a complete kosher kitchen. The owner's son, Yerachmiel, was kind enough to supply us with a brand new (large) jar of coffee as a welcome present!.

Beautiful, modern, spacious apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 4 (2 adults and 2 kids). We stayed at this apartment for a week (also with my mother-in-law) and would absolutely stay there again on our next visit. It is in a great location with a gorgeous view. The parking spot was a huge bonus as parking is difficult in the area. The living room/dining room areas provide plenty of space to relax and the kitchen is large and has everything you could possibly need. The bedrooms are separated in such a way that everyone has privacy if they want it. Bathrooms in Israel tend to be pretty small, but the two here were full-sized and bigger than those I've experienced in hotels in Israel, with plenty of towels! It was also great to have a washer and dryer right in the apartment. The apartment is extremely clean and obviously well-cared for. The owner even checked in with us mid-stay to make sure everything was ok. If you're looking for a great apartment in Jerusalem, this is it!

Just Spectacular

  • 5 of 5

Light of Jerusalem exceeded our expectations in every way. The apartment was immaculate, well appointed and spacious. We plan to return again and stay there. The property manager was very helpful. Although we did encounter some issues with the television and internet we were assured that they were working on correcting the problems. We did have internet for all days except one day and one night. Watching television was not a big deal except for the football days. One small way to improve would be more pillows in the bedrooms. Also instructions for the coffee machine would be helpful. In no way did these things diminish our wonderful vacation in Jerusalem.
