The Neighborhood

Lies at the heart of Tel Aviv in one of it's most famous streets - Sheinkin. The street is a mid-upper class Tel Aviv and is quiet at evening, and has only one-way single-route traffic. At night there is almost no traffic at all. The apartment has a balcony that turns to the street with the view of all the street life that is going on. The bedroom is quiet. The Carmel market is 2 minute walk, and the beaches are 6 minutes walk (650m). The part of the street where the apartment is located has a very good breeze of winds at evenings as it serves a corridor of wind from the sea.

Getting around

Transportation: Cheap bike rents for a day or a week (I will guide you) are 100 m nearby, and should suit more than enough to go around Tel Aviv center. Bus stations are about 250 m nearby. Buses and shuttles to Israeli cities are available by taking an additional 7 min shuttle ride.

Shopping and entertainment: A lot of restaurants and boutique cloth shops on the street (I will guide you). 24/7 grocery store 1 min walk. Market is 2 minutes walk. Bars are very nearby. You'll be in the center of what's happening in Tel Aviv.

Parking: There's a very cheap parking near by and a free parking at the north port. (please check Guidebook for more info)

  • Good: Location was excellent, two minutes from the Carmel market, one minute from the junction of King George St and Allenby St and ten minutes to the sea front. Lots of local cafés and easy for buses, but not too noisy at night. The first floor (European, 2nd floor American) apartment had a large lounge with fast WiFi, big TV and cable in most languages. Nice little kitchenette and big fridge freezer for drinks and snacks. Good and quick air con in the lounge. Hot water is from a tank in the bathroom on a timer; it never let us down and pressure for the shower was good.

    There's a lovely little balcony with two chairs and a table overlooking the street. Makes breakfast very pleasant.

    We didn't need it, but there's a "put you up" bed in the bedroom that can be deployed in the lounge.

    Not so good; The bedroom was small with a double bed (not queen) against a wall. There was no air con and the ceiling fan wasn't really a good substitute. Mikha left an additional fan. Not a problem in spring and autumn, but an issue in the summer.

    The previous occupants appear to have left late and Mikha didn't have time to give the place a really good clean, which it needed. We asked for a check out time and were told it wasn't an issue, but when we left at 2pm, we were told off for staying past noon.

    The entrance vestibule from the street is "interesting"; you either love it or you hate it. I didn't love it, but many will.

  • Mikha was able to accommodate us on a last minute reservation. The apt was clean and there was a balcony. He thought of questions one would normally ask and left detailed information. We were truly centrally located to everything that you need and Shenkin street is still an amazing street to be on. Very close to everything, the shuk ha Carmel - the amazing farmers market, bars, cafes, restaurants and he had a balcony, that was priceless.

    We now know Where we'll stay When we return to Tel Aviv, Israel. At Mikha's. Thank you so very much!!!

  • The apartment is conveniently located in the middle of the city, 10 minutes from the beach. However the apartment itself is in pretty bad shape, it's in an old, rather run-down 2 story building. Don't come expecting luxury. The bedroom is alright, it's pretty small and the bed is just big enough for two people. We didn't turn the overhead fan on however for fear of it falling on our heads it was swinging so much. The couch is pretty hard, not super comfortable for sitting. The balcony is nice but very low to the ground, you're not so much looking out over the street at smack in the middle of it. As other reviewers have said, not the cleanest place. Mikha will almost definitely just start cleaning the apartment when you get there, so come prepared to leave your stuff and go out for a few hours.

    Response from Mikha:

    1. I've replaced the couch to a completely new beautiful leather sofa - you
    can check it out in the pictures gallery.
    2. The fan in the bedroom is replaced.
    3. I've made few improvements to the kitchen look, now it is more neat.
    4. The building is old, and not luxury, but this is the whole concept of
    Sheinkin. The apartment is re-innovated.

  • The apartment is very well situated in Tel Aviv and convenient. The street has everything you need.

  • Great centrally located apartment just a block away from the Carmel Market, a great place to shop for anything from souvenirs, to fresh cheeses, produce, meats and bakeries. Within walking distance to the beach and other nice neighborhoods, Neve Tzedek (original Tel Aviv neighborhood, now charming place to stroll.), Rothchild Boulevard as well with cafe kiosks every other block. Sheinken is a fun street with lots of shops. The apartment although basic has lots of charm, especially the balcony, a great place to hang out after a busy day of walking. Mikha greeted us on arrival and gave lots of tips on dining and directions.

  • This place was located in a very good area , close to beach, market , shops , best Falafel place and bars. Clean and well presented with balcony for smokers and cozy room for couples. We were allowed to stay longer on check out due to no bookings next day so Thank you Mikha for that and all the best ..

  • Mikha met me at the apartment on time. The location is excellent, near the corner of Allenby, walking distance to Carmel market & Nachlat Benyamin, buses, cafes, walking to Dizengoff, the beach etc... The apartment is very spacious & a great bonus was having a washing machine & a wonderful balcony. There is a full size fridge/freezer, along with a kettle & double hotplate. Shower pressure is great & I never ran out of hot water, which was automatic. The speaker system was wonderful to enjoy music too. No smoking smells & felt very safe being a solo female traveller.

  • Appartement très fonctionnel et très bien placé.

  • Миха приятный и отзывчивый хозяин. Если нам что-то требовалось - он всегда был на связи.
    Квартира оставила двоякое впечатление.
    Из приятного. Очень романтичный балкон, особенно вечером. Все близко - квартира в самом центре города, если хочешь прочувствовать ритм большого Тель-Авива - тебе сюда.
    Из неприятного. Чистота квартиры оставляет желать лучшего. Полы и поверхности столов были грязными, а посуда была плохо помыта. Плесень в ванной, течет бачок унитаза, отваливается держатель шторки для душа, да и мебель старая, диван не раскладывается, а один из стульев про(website hidden)ен и прикрыт подушкой. Самое печальное - отсутствие мест для парковки авто поблизости. Ближайшая стоянка в квартале от квартиры и стоила нам 60 шекелей в сутки (да и то пришлось поторговаться за них).
    Иными словами если вы едете не за комфортом, а за впечатлениями - это то, что надо. Но для семейного отдыха - эта квартира не подходит.

  • It was the middle of the night, two American filmmakers looking for a bed for a few hours before heading into The West Bank. Our host opened his doors to us, and I'm pretty sure we put him out. Although we don't know where he stayed, we were blessed that he was able to give us peace for a few hours. Thank you so much!
