Guestbook comments from the owner

Five of us (3 generations) recently spent over a week in this beautiful apartment. It was the prettiest apartment we saw in our 6-week online search, and proved to be as comfortable in person as it was lovely. Several other family members stayed in other rentals at the same time, and all were consistent in their praise of our Ha-Rekevet place as 'outstanding'. It felt like home, was steps from restaurants, transportation, and a grocery store, and the building's reserved parking lot proved to be a big bonus.

All that was said by previous renters is not exaggerated. David and Andi were attentive and did their utmost to make us welcome. We will definitely recommend this to friends and family in the future & are available for a reference, if desired.

Spacious, well appointed apartment and great location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the apartment. Location is great - you walk out the door and are steps from Emek Refaim and the park near First Station. The apartment has a fully stocked, kosher kitchen. The bathrooms are updated.

Fantastic Property!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Jerusalem for our daughters wedding and we stayed at this wonderful property for 10 days. The apartment, the location, and the owners were all amazing! The apartment was fully equipped with everything we needed to make our stay comfortable and convenient. We were able to host an incredible shabbat kallah and shabbat sheva brachot in the apartment and our guests were all amazed at how lovely and spacious the apartment was. The artwork in the apartment (much of it done by the owner) was spectacular!

There were 6 of us staying in the apartment and there was lots of space and a generous supply of towels and bedding.

An added bonus was having parking; it was so nice to not worry about having to find a parking spot on the street. The apartment also came equipped with wifi, and had a cart for shopping!

We would highly recommend this apartment to our friends and hope to return there ourselves!

We would like to thank the Arnovitz's for helping to make our stay so special.

A perfect place

  • 5 of 5

I rented this apartment in Harekevet Street, close to Emek Refaim in the German Colony, to visit my daughter who is currently on a gap year program in Jerusalem. I had many people to thank for taking the time to assist her when she arrived a few months ago and had actually planned two dinners for 20 people for two of the seven days that I was there. The apartment is perfect for entertaining and there is so much space! The location is excellent and the Swan Gym just minutes walk from the property was excellent for those who would like to work out. Andi and David were kind enough to allow an early check in as my flight from the Philippines arrived at dawn and were quick to assist for any issues. I can highly recommend this apartment and will try and post a couple of pictures on Tripadvisor so you can have a view of the kitchen, which is bigger than the vrbo website pictures show. What a great week it was with friends and family visiting from Italy and New York to join in the festivities!

Location, Location, Location!!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a fabulous 2 weeks in this beautiful, spacious and fully-equipped apartment located in an excellent location in the German Colony! The apartment was very comfortable and the owners were very accommodating and responsive. We celebrated the holiday of Succot during our stay and had a full-size decorative succah for our use, which was set up by the owners. The parking available was convenient for our visiting family members. We enjoyed the short walk to many excellent kosher restaurants, shops, supermarkets and dry cleaners. The modern kitchen had everything we needed and the restaurants all had excellent 'take-away' food, which we took advantage of on many occasions. The walking and biking paths and grass lawns on Rakevet Street were steps away from the apartment so we spent many hours enjoying the beautiful neighborhood. There are many synagogues in the immediate area and it was just about a 30 minute walk to the Old City. We would definitely stay in this apartment again-we loved it!!

perfect apartment

  • 5 of 5

this apartment was recommended to us by friends. The location is perfect, just 1-2 min to Emek Rafaim.

German colony is such a nice neighborhood with everything you need. A market is a block away and there are at least half a dozen coffee shops within a 10 min walk. The apartment is large, clean and fully equipped. The owners could not be any nicer. We arrived on an early flight at 7am and as the unit was vacant, they were very kind to allow us to check in early.

It was great for our family of four as there are 3 bedrooms and 2 baths

I highly recommend this unit and would stay there again on future trips to Israel

Great Choice

  • 5 of 5

Our family, 6 adults, stayed for 8 nights at this wonderful 3 bedroom apartment. Not only did we enjoy the apartment itself, but we loved the location... an easy walk to lovely boutiques, Aroma coffee shop, Taama gourmet food shop (not sure i have the spelling right), to name a few. The apartment was clean, had wifi,flat screen tv, washer and dryer, dishwasher, and all the amenities of a modern, well-equipped kitchen. We would stay there again..
