Our cosy, Scandinavian-style furnished apartment with a balcony is situated in the old part of Eilat among the locals away from the tourists.
Within 12 minutes' walk you reach downtown Eilat. Walking a few more minutes you reach the Read Sea and can take a swim. Within 1 minute’s walk from the apartment there is a typical Israeli, small supermarket. Next door to the supermarket you find a shop with delicious nuts and spices.
It is enjoyable having meals on the balcony watching the local people coming and going in the square. As the apartment is situated at the top floor, and you reach it only by the staircase. You can see the montains in Jordan, in Saudi Arabia, the outskirts of Eilat and parts of the city of Eilat from the balcony.
If the sun is too bright you can use the sun umbrella. When too hot to sit outside it is possible to be chilled off inside by either the desert cooler or the air con.
The hallway is not so well kept, but as soon as you enter the apartment, you will find a place cared for. It has a warm and artistic atmosphere. The apartment has been in the family for more than 40 years. We love the place.

There are lots of parking possibilities in the area.
You can always call Nissim, who takes care of the apartment, if you need any kind of help.
I love the place as it is situated amidst local people from Eilat far away from the hotel area. And at the same time it just takes 12-15 minuttes walk to reach downtown and the beach.
There are busses, but taxis are cheap. The taxis are driving all the time down and up the street. You don't have to call for a taxi (except very early in the morning or late night), as you have to wait only a few minuttes before a vacent taxi is passing by.

Excellent experience, the location was perfect not to far from the center, the house was clean and well equipped. On our arrival Nissim gave us some homemade cake and bisquits. it was a nice surprise, he was very nice and helpful.
Everything was perfect. Great house and amazing host. Nissim was very kind and even brought us homemade cake for breakfast! Very recommended!
Susan's place was very well decorated and well taken care of. The apartment was a little bit further of a walk than I thought it was going to be to get to the beach. But it wasn't too big of a deal. The only true negative about the experience were the neighbors. Because the apartment complex has a central open design you can hear everything that is going on within the building. The neighbors dog went out at about 6 am every morning and would bark for a couple minutes. I would still give it 4.5 out of 5 overall. Well worth the money.
Nice and comfy apartment with a great view over Eilat and the mountains in Jordan. Nissim was very friendly and helped make our short stay in Eilat a pleasant one. Just a small note that the apartment is on the fourth and last floor of the building with no elevators, so be mindful when traveling with older folks or heavy luggage.
The listing was accurate and the apartment was well kept. The apt. Was on the top floor which i knew about from other reviews.
Nissim was very nice guy and give us all the services. He phone several times to ask if we need something.
The apartment was very nice and clean.
Susan's assistant Nissim was very kind. he came with his car to meeting point and guide us to the home. At home he welcomed us with homemade sweet plate and informed us about flat details and where to go in Eilat. At home there is also a file full of Eilat touristic flyers and necessary emergency contact details.
The home decoration is warm . We felt our self at our own sweet home. You can find in the wardrobe a big range of towels and linens. Game boxes are ready waiting the little kids and adults for playing. I suggest this flat to people who would like to stay in Eilat.
