About R. T. Lehavi

Hello, I'm Talia, I am a fine art painter who lives and work in London and Zichron. When away from Zichron we have been letting our beautiful home for short periods of time to friends and guests who wish to take a break in this lovely part of Israel.

I appreciate art, music and quiet time. We love to take long walks in the nature reserve nearby, and go down one of our local beaches for the day with packed lunch. The garden is our sanctuary, with the best sunsets view ever.

We would see you as our very special guests, and hope that you will feel welcomed and happy throughout your stay.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A fifteen minute walk from the heart of Zichron Yaakov, two blocks from the edge of one of Carmel Mountain's beautiful nature preserves, and ten minutes from perhaps the best French Bakery / cafe in the country (run by a Russian from Novosibirsk, so they also know how to make serious bread) sits this lovely house in which we immediately felt at home. With two small jetlag disynchronized children and family members who like to hang out, the very large common space (kitchen, dining room, living room, foyer with upright piano) and 3 bedrooms, large bath and second WC, plus wrap around garden accessible through french doors off the living room and a back door off the utility room with washer-drier meant many places to go together or in pairs to have time together or apart and pleasant cross-ventilation. We would love to come back to the bougainvillea entrance and the framed view of the sea.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay in this well situated, lovely house in Zikhron Yaakov. This most recent stay was for 2 and a half weeks. For each visit, the house fully met our needs - spacious, quiet, comfortably furnished, peaceful and pretty garden, near friends and Shul, and a view of the sunset over the Mediterranean every evening. It has a large bathroom with a walk-in shower and a second toilet which was very convenient. The own and property manager are responsive and very pleasant to communicate with. Only recommendations for improvement: Time to replace towels and to address a moldy odor beneath one kitchen cabinet, but these small issues did not impact on our enjoyment of the house. We enjoyed our stay tremendously and hope to return.

Owner's Response: Dear Gail, Thank you for posting such a lovely review about the house. We are pleased to know that you have enjoyed your stay this time as well. As for your comments, I will check immediately the kitchen cabinet, and sort out anything that may be needed. As for towels, we have just ordered and received fresh new cotton towels for the new year. So hoping your next visit will be even more pleasant and relaxed. Kindest regards, Talia

Calm and lovely oasis

  • 5 of 5

This house is truly a gem in a lovely location. Our family of 4 stayed for almost 3 weeks and enjoyed it as a comfortable home base very much. The layout of the home is perfect for a family or those needing some spaciousness (especially while recovering from jet-lag this was especially welcome - since our children were up at every hour day and night while adjusting!) - the kitchen is well equipped, there is a lovely dining room table and we often cooked/ate meals at home. There is also an incredible yard with herbs, fruit trees, flowers and a view of the Mediterranean in the distance. The owner is an artist and her beautiful decor and peaceful aesthetic makes the whole house feel calming. We found Zichron Yaakov itself is the best location in all of Israel for a vacation - with its gorgeous pedestrian mall, artistic shops, coffee houses, etc. The nearby nature preserve (Ramat HaNadiv) not only has amazing gardens to walk through, but also has a restaurant set in an idillic location with one of the nicest playgrounds I've ever been to - so, the kids could play while we relaxed and ate. Beautiful beaches nearby (our favorite was the aqueduct beach in Ceasarea) We have rented many VRBO properties around the world, and this was one of the nicest - highly recommended!

Lovely Accommodation in Zichron

  • 5 of 5

This is a spacious house, well positioned in Zichron. It's about a 15-20 minute stroll into the famous centre where there are many lovely restaurants. Also it's well positioned for a walk in the nearby nature reserve. Shops are nearby too, so everything is very good for a family vacation.

The house has very good facilities, and the spacious bathroom is very good too. Really it is a great place for a relaxing vacation. We hope to return.

We found this place spacious, clean and well equipped for a convenient and enjoyable stay.

The nieghborhoos is quite, close to hiking trails and walking distance to the center of Zichron Yaakov.

Always love to return again

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time we enjoyed our vacation in this beautiful house. And we really felt like being in our own home. Since our last visit the bathroom has ben refurbished and equipped with a brand new shower. Everything was prepared nicely at our arrival through the owner to make this another unforgettable holiday.

We can recommend this house very much and we might return at some later day in the future.
