This luxurious apartment is furnished to high standards, and decorated with care. It has a well equipped kitchen with Its own private entrance, with access to a wooden balcony and lovely garden to enjoy meals outside makes it a special place for a vacation.
Within the surrounding garden there is a separate oil cellar which offers a selection of our local superb olive oil.
Amikam is very peaceful and relaxing and at any time of the year you can enjoy activities such as riding, walking or cycling.
The apartment is perfectly located adjacent to the Alona Nature reserve with the nearby historic site – Mei Kedem and an ideal location for excursions to nearby Caeasrea, Zikron Yaakov and picturesque beaches - Sdot Yam which has sailing facilities, Nahsholim, Neve Yam and Dor Beach.
Being a family with two adults and two small children at the age of 2 and 4, finding a comfortable location to spend a vacation is not easy. This apartment gave us the possibility to eat out meals at our own times, making them in the fully equipped and very fresh kitchenette. There was also a place to get laundry done down the road (altough this was not nessisary for us).
The beds were comfortable, the bathroom and kitchen clean and the staff was very helpful and friendly. Some other reviewers have mentioned the extravagant view over the israeli land, and I must admit that I would be able to just sit and watch the sun rise and set all day long. I would most definetly recommend this place to my own mother and my best friend. There are plently of good restaurants just a short drive away aswell as shopping and a hiking site. To sum it up: Great location, great people running it and a great time. I can not wait to come back :-)
I spent 10 days with my family in the guest house and we will definetly come back, hopefully soon. It is clean, tidy and we felt at home right away. The view from the veranda, where we had our breakfast every morning, is a reason in it self to visit Amikam.
I can definetly recommend this "home away from home" to everyone who seeks the genuine Israel experience and wishes to enjoy the friendly atmosphere of the moshav. It is suitable for familys with children: my 2 year old and 4 year old girls had an amazing time playing on the front lawn while their parents drank coffe and relaxed. I would recommend this stay for my best friend. It is a very good place.
I'd like to add a big plus for the hosts that were available for all of our requests and made us feel very welcome.
There was really no need for us to visit any restaurants since the kitchenette is well equipped and in good condition, but there are plently of places to eat out less than 15 min drive away.
The beds were comfortable and all four of us slept very good.
I hope to come back soon.
We've spent 6 days at this zimmer in September 2011, and we loved it! After we had travelled the cities, the Dead Sea and Golan, we came to start the relaxing part of our holiday. Initially we wanted to stay for 4 nights, but eventually we stood for 6.
The house is located in a lovely little village, it's an annex to the owner's house, and the large wooden terrace overlooks a huge beautiful garden, with lots of pomegranate and olive trees. In the evenings, we enjoyed several BBQs with some good glass of wine there. We loved to be away from the tourist places and to get an idea of the actual country life in Israel. It's about 15 mins by car to the next beach and a little further to sights like Caesarea, Ein Hod etc., and so it's better to be by car, but the daily drive to Amikam, passing by beautiful fields and orchards, is itself really nice.
But what made our stay so very special was the host family, who are lovely and very welcoming people. We did not feel like tourists but like family guests, and thus really at home. However, those who like stay on their own during their holidays will of course be able to enjoy their privacy as well.
The place is also perfect for olive lovers (such as us): The host makes super delicious oil, which every guest finds in the house for his own use during his stay. We've visited the orchards and learned a lot about olive plantation, and you immediately feel that besides the expert knowledge and hard work a lot of love and passion wanders into this high quality boutique oil. Spending time in these orchards, e.g. on a picnic, is something unique: it's quieter and more peaceful than anywhere else in the country - just yourself, trees and birds - a true retreat!
We were enthralled with the beauty of our apartment and all the surrounding area.We stayed for three and a half weeks and were delighted with the accomodations. Our host and hostess could not do enough for us to make sure that our visit was everything we expected. Would highly recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Israel. We plan to return next year and stay there again.
The apartment is very nice, with all the essential facilities and some optionals, microwave, air conditioning, free open wireless, and a curious pseudo-fig-tree outside on the terrace which makes a wide complete and pleasant shadow to repair oneself from sun. To seat at the table under this tree gives a feeling of noncommon pleasure in any time of the day (except in the night when mosquitos dominate on the world…, at least in those days). The place around is a wonderful garden with trees, flowers, olives which extends for the whole countryside around, which is named just "the israeli Toscana". 1km from there, still in Amikam, there is a useful shop with all what one can need, to arrive to Zichron or to highway 70 or to highway 2 (cvish-hachof, along the sea) it takes about 15min. by car. The owner, Ofer with his wonderful family, is gentle, nice and hospitable, he is always available to help and to give support for anything one can need. The cost is not in absolute the lowest, but compared with the service is reasonable.
Have a nice holyday,
Dans un cadre complétement naturel avec vue imprenable sur la forêt, à l'abri des regards, vous pourrez profiter du calme, de l'air pur, dans un petit chalet douillet, très fonctionnel et bien aménagé. Le climat et la végétation sont proches de ceux de la Provence et les paysages non moins magnifiques. La proximité de la mer vous offre aussi les joies du bord de mer. Enfin, last but not least, l'hospitalité du propriétaire Ofer est sans égal. Il vous fera visiter ses terres où il y cultive des oliviers et vous fera goûter l'huile organique qu'il produit et vous donnera nombre de conseils et d'astuces pour passer un séjour mémorable !!
Nos prochaines vacances sont d'ores et déjà programmées là-bas !!!
