3 bedroom, 2-1/2 bathroom apartment with ocean views
Are you visiting family in Ashdod? Have you been invited to a wedding? Is your granddaughter having her Bat Mitzvah? Is this your first time in Israel? Mazel Tov! During your visit to Israel, you will go to Jerusalem (it’s only an hour away) and walk through the old city and Ben Yehuda Street. You will go into the desert and take the cable-car to the top of Massada. You might even go up north to the Kenneret (Sea of Galilee), and also wander through Sefat. But, when you are in Ashdod – it’s time to relax: splash in the Mediterranean, stroll along the beach, stop at a café for salad, hummus, pita, or have a cappuccino at sunset.
Ashdod is unique. Ashdod is like Sorrento in Italy, or, Marbella in Spain, except here, the locals speak Hebrew (or Russian or French or sometimes English).
The nicest area in Ashdod is the Marina and this is where you can stay: separated from the Marina and the Mediterranean only by dunes. My 3 bedroom, 2-1/2 bathroom apartment, is perfect for relaxing. You can sit on the balcony, drink tea, look at the ocean, watch freighters wait their turn to unload cargo at Ashdod port, and, all the time knowing that your children are safe, but, not under foot. The balcony is large enough that you will soon consider it an extension of the living room - just open the sliding glass doors.
The apartment is fully furnished. The kitchen is equipped for cooks and families. We provide a starter sets of towels and sheets. But, at some point, you may have to do a wash, so there is a washer/dryer in the apartment. We've tried to provide most items you might need.
Master bedroom - One queen (160 cm) with private bathroom.
2nd bedroom - "mamad" - two twin (80 cm) beds.
3rd bedroom - Double bed (140 cm)
The apartment is kosher: we have two sets of flatware and dishes; plus a hotplate and water boiler for Shabbat. The building runs a Shabbat elevator.
Since you are flying in and out – there is no set time when you must arrive or leave. You may arrive any time on your check-in day, and, you may leave any time on your check-out day. For example, if you need to be at the airport at 9 pm for an 11 pm flight out of Israel, stay until 8 pm there is no reason why you must check-out early. The door has a keypad lock.
Our favorite outdoor café is on the beach, Lee-Gal, under the clocktower. With mostly outdoor seating. Stay for an hour or two, watch the surf, while sipping a cold Hoegaarden. It’s where the surfing crowd goes. Gal was the Israeli surfing champ many years ago.
So, look at the photos and if you have any questions or special needs, please contact me.
We would love for you to stay with us.
A few reviews from guests who stayed at the apartment in previous years:
* 'Thank you so much for taking care of this so efficiently. It has been a pleasure to do business with you. We really enjoyed staying in the apartment and hope to be able to do so again in the future. The apartment and location are great - and your organization made it all easy. This is a perfect place for people to stay if they don't want the traffic and congestion of Tel Aviv. One of the most enjoyable evenings we had (other than the wedding related ones) was at the plaza by the beach. After Shabbat they had a woman teaching dancing and there must have been hundreds of people out there dancing. Later on they had a band and everyone was dancing - people of all ages. We also walked along the beach almost every night. This is a beautiful area to stay in and I look forward to staying there again. I would also recommend it to others going there.' -- B. K. Chicago
* 'The flat was wonderful. I was nervous about taking the unit sight unseen. However, your apartment added so much to our visit. The location is great. You can get anywhere from Ashdod because it’s so central. The beach is beautiful and the unit is very spacious, clean and comfortable. I liked that Marina Ashdod is a newly built part of the city. After a long day touring ancient cities that are often packed with people and traffic, it’s a welcome relief to retire at a quiet apartment by the sea.' -- K. M. Oregon
* 'I just wanted to let you know that the apt. was just perfect for my family and they really had a great time. They even found an English speaking taxi driver that helped them around town when I could not. Thanks again.' -- J. S. Ashdod

About Eli Cohen
Hi, I'm Eli. I live about 75 miles north of New York City and have owned and rented this apartment since 2006. My daughter and family - Sandi, Tsion (pronounced Tsee-own), and 19 year old, Daniel - live in Jerusalem and they will be your contacts while you are staying in Ashdod. We will all try to make your stay in Ashdod as relaxing as possible. With the distances involved, some may feel apprehension about renting an apartment sight unseen. Might I suggest you do this: Have your Ashdod relatives talk with Tsion and Sandi and visit the apartment. I want you to get their approval before making the reservation. 'Hey...if Uncle David likes it - it must be fantastic. He's picky about everything!' If you would like your 'Uncle David' to speak with Tsion (he's fluent in Hebrew and English) or if you have any questions, please contact me.
Eli Cohen purchased this Apartment in 2006

Great apartment, excellent location
We are a family of 5 and stayed for about 10 days at the apartment. We couldn't have asked for anything more - clean, plenty of room, convenient location and a great view of the harbor. We had no problems getting in when we first arrived. All in all, an excellent value and we had a fabulous stay in Ashdod!
Thanks for your kind words. I glad you had a wonderful time in Ashdod.
Safe comfortable home
We used this lovely home as a base for seeing Israel. The beach is close and the swimming is delightful. We enjoyed dinner at the restaurant under the clock tower and a long walk north to the park with the zoo. We opened windows to cool the apartment but air conditioning would have been helpful.
I'm glad you enjoyed Ashdod. There are many lovely walks along the beach.
The apartment has central air and heating. I'm sorry you did not realize the remote on the the kitchen counter is used to turn on and control the a/c. In the future, I will add instructions to my welcome file.
Très bel appartement
Nous avons passé 2 semaines très agréables dans l'appartement d'Eli. Le ménage était bien fait à l'arrivée et tout était propre. La terrasse avec la vue sur la mer est magnifique.
Des vacances à refaire !
Je recommande ce site et cet appartement
Translation: We spent 2 lovely weeks at Eli's apartment. Housekeeping was well done and everything was clean. The terrace with sea view is magnificent. A holiday to repeat! I recommend this site and this apartment.
Thank you for the kind words.
Merci . Je vous souhaite rester avec nous encore une fois .
If you want to see Israel on your own or if you are visiting family this is a great location. It is central to the tourist options.
The condo is roomy for entertaining or just relaxing. This condo has it all.
Thanks David, it was a pleasure to host you during your stay in Ashdod.
Fantastic Stay in Ashdod
My family and I stayed in Eli's apartment this past February and had an absolutely great experience. First right from the beginning Eli has been very responsive, attentive and understanding which made all the pre-stay arrangements flow well. I grow up in Ashdod and know it very well- this is a winner location - it is right in the center. Ten minutes walk will take you to the central bus station that has two shopping malls with restaurants and a grocery store right by. You can see the sea from your window and you are 5 minutes walk from the actual beach and the boardwalk.
The apartment itself is lovely - clean, spacious and has everything you need including dishes, towels and washer and dryer, stove and microwave - this were key to me since I traveled with two young children. We felt very much at home. I will be recommending this place to any of my friends and family who need to stay in town. Next time I go back to visit family I will certainly get in touch with Eli again!
Thank you for the kind words. I look forward to your next visit.
Rundum tolle Wohnung mit fantastischer Aussicht auf das Meer. Tolle Gegend! Wir empfehlen weiter!
