I had not been to Israel for over 40 years and this time, as a VRBO owner myself, I made the decision to rent an apartment in Tel Aviv for this visit.
It all starts with having a great host and no matter how familiar you are with Israel, Tel Aviv is a dynamic and sometimes challenging city. Ron, who owns the apartment, is great about giving advice, pointing out wonderful (often little known or out of the way) spots for dining, shopping, and cultural activities. He has a knack for exposing hidden treasures that make a vacation special. And while the apartment is on an extremely quiet tree-lined street, he is not exaggerating when he says it is situated in the “epicenter” of everything. You can walk a couple of minutes to the Carmel Market, the beach, the best shopping, dining and nightlife.
As for the apartment itself, it is very well appointed and best of all for us, it is a classic, gorgeous Bauhaus building. I’ve always been interested in this style of architecture and I was pleasantly surprised when I discovered this apartment was not only on the famous Bialik Street, but was actually the one that I had seen a few times in architectural books I was researching this subject.
When I rent an apartment, I look for three things -
1. Clean, and I mean really clean (my vacation time is too valuable to worry),
2. Location, location, location (everyone says they are in a great location), and
3. Charm, quality, and comfort (I want more than just a roof over my head).
For me the two lovely terraces, one extending from the master bedroom, are just icing on the cake. This apartment gets a perfect score on all these counts. We will definitely be back when return to Israel in the future. And thanks for being such a terrific host Ron, I appreciated that bottle of wine. What a touch.
Tourists without a Car,
