My husband and I stayed for 2 weeks and loved loved loved Casa Tata! The listing and pictures are 100% accurate, exactly what we were expecting, with little extras-- every time we needed something, lo and behold it was somewhere in the apartment! Dan and Michal were very responsive and communicative throughout the booking process, arrival, and throughout our stay. The loft is very clean, comfortable, good bed, fun reading material scattered throughout the loft. The location is perfect, especially for a first visit to Tel Aviv.
No need for a car, and we never even used public transportation with the exception of taxi to and from airport. 10 minute walk to the beach, 10-20 minute walk to all kids of other Tel Aviv goodies like the Carmel Market, Rabin Square, Habima Square, Rothschild Blvd, Shenkin Street; and it was only a 30 min run down to Old Jaffa, 1 hour walk up to Tel Aviv University campus through HaYarkon Park, etc... Tel Aviv is a beautiful city to walk through and there is also a bike rental system if you're into that-- the promenade (along the beach) is very runner/walker/biker friendly. There are also many restaurants along the beach in this area that have seating on the sand and wifi, so my husband and I were able to literally work from the beach some days! (one of our favorites was Tsfoni. Stunning views)
Dan & Michal provided some great restaurant recommendations on the Casa Tata website as well! Café Barnash, just across the street and east one block, was one of our favorites along with Falafel Gabai (a few blocks towards the beach, on Bograshov)! We also booked several tours around Israel through Bein Harim Tours and thy were able to do a "hotel pickup" just a few blocks down from Casa Tata at a local hotel, which was very convenient. All in all a great vacation, and a great experience!
We can't wait to go back!! We already have a "must do" list for next time ;)
