A good experience
Thank you for the flexibility of our check in (which was for us the end of a very rushed trip).
Host was Excellent: provided guides, information and clear communication. Their kindness and extra effort made or travel much easier.
We had a very nice and peaceful stay. Had we known it would be like that, we would make the same decision again! It was so nice to experience the peace and safety of your beautiful country in a beautiful mountain setting.
I did dunk seven times in the spring down by the graveyard, we had a nice time in the park at the top of the hill, and we had a truly marvelous time on the "jesus boat" at Ginosar.
Marla was very pleasant and friendly, please convey our thanks to her as well.
Owner has graciously taken our input for improvements that we thought important.
I had done a previous review and mentioned the trash and disrepair of the surrounding community, but have since learned that it seems to be common to the country, and has no bearing on this rental.
Visits to Safed's local winery and cheese factory. Not to be missed is a walk to the Citadel. The highest point in Tsfat's Old City. The Art Galley is must see during your visit in Safed. The main highlight of Safed is the Synagogues & Holy Sites to learn why Safat is one of Israel's 4 holy cities.
