The Space

Short term apartment in Kiryat Tivon, Haifa district.
Ideal for tourists or anyone else who needs an apartment for a short period of time.

The bedroom is equipped with mattresses (no beds, see picture) and is suitable for up to four persons. The apartment includes one bedroom, one large living room, bathroom, separated restroom and kitchen.
Amenities include free Wi-Fi, fans (no A/C), refrigerator, stoves, closets and more. We have enough linens, towels and beddings so you don't need to bring any.
We will also stock your refrigerator with some food in case you want to prepare a light meal.

We have no pets, as much as we like cats and dogs we ask our guests not to bring any pets with them.

Location and Transportation:
The apartment is located in Kiryat Tivon. Just 15 minutes drive from Haifa. One hour from Tel Aviv and Ben Gurion Airport. 100 minutes drive from Jerusalem. Public transportation exists but it’s much more convenient to get around with a car.
Free parking is always available.

The neighborhood (Kiryat Haroshet) is very quite and peaceful. The town (Kiryat Tivon) is only somewhat more vibrant, though it has a lot to offer for those seeking offbeat attractions.

Lessons learned:
We never had a negative experience with any of our guests. Short-term visitors found the apartment to answer all their needs and the location to be convenient, and travellers who had more time to explore the area got a unique experience to see Israel from the eyes of locals.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Avri en Tali zijn zeer warme en gastvrije mensen. Al gelijk toen we aankwamen nodigden zij ons uit omiets te drinken. daarna nodigden zij ons uit om de buurt te verkennen. de locatie is perfect om toeren in het noorden van Israel. Caesarea, berg Tabor, Megiddo, Nazareth, allemaal binnen een half uur reisafstand met de auto. Haifa is maar 15miuten. de ruimte (appartement gedeelte) is ontzettend groot.
    Zij zijn trotse ouders van hun kinderen en kleinkinderen die ze ook graag lieten zien van foto's die ze hadden en ze waren absoluut niet opdringerig.
    Als je Israel in het noorden wilt bezoeken en ergens wilt verblijven, dan kan ik ze van harte aanbevelen.

  • Avri has an excellent place close to Haifa and the north of Israel. The sea of Gallilee is also not too far by car. Avri (email hidden) who gave up some of his spare time to show us his town in a guided tour in his car. He also invited us for coffee and we spent hours talking. He and his family are the nicest people and his place is exactly as on the photos.

  • Beautiful place, garden with citrus trees, sort of a basement flat, a ground floor under the main level of a large suburban house -- not much view from windows though -- and we were quite disappointed that there was no TV. Just 15 minute drive out of Haifa in the suburbs, but forget it without a car. Park across teh street, generally lovely middle class community, outskirts of a major suburban town (Tivon). If trying to find it using (website hidden) maps or navigation, the turn out shown as road to Haim Weizman st it keeps showing, is from the gas station parking lot, it's an unpaved road not visible in the dark.
    The family are very nice but in our case, we could not shake a strange feeling that they didn't like us much, that wouldn't go away. Perhaps it was because I was travelling single with two daughters. On Friday they suddenly said that their son who is home from college is going to sleep over in a bedroom in our apartment (which was actually his bedroom, it transpired), which was a bit odd, I thought, and made my daughters somewhat uncomfortable.
    Then on the 6th day out of 9 we stayed there, they showed up and said they decided that I should have paid more money -- they wanted me to pay extra for my older daughter, apparently. I was confused but declined, since I announced the number and ages of children involved in the very first inquiry about a possibility of reservation, never noticed there was anything about a number of people in the form, and my reservation request was approved by hosts as I made it.
    I think at any rate if there was a problem people should be asked for additional money, if ever, perhaps on the first day, not the 6th when it puts them in an awkward position. Apparently they didn't realise I was coming with my daughters, because they haven't read what i said in my reservation request. But that overall created a lot of awkwardness and 6 days of lingering feeling of unresolved discomfort we were causing.

  • Avri and Tali are very nice people and always ready to help. The place is roomy and well furnished. We enjoyed staying there, although it was a bit cold, since the apartment is on basement level and has to be warmed with portable electric heaters.

  • My family and I stayed there for 3 days, and in our opinion the house is in an excellent location where is peace and quiet. Region is amazing, but first of all hosts Tali and Avri are wonderful people, always ready to help and guide you in the history and sights of the region. Tali"s cake - how to say in English.... uuuum mniam mniam......You must try!
    We recommend this place to everyone who is interested to feel like at home and is going to explore Haifa, Akko and Galilea.

  • I stayed with Avishay's family for one night. I met his father and mother, who are both very friendly end welcoming and extremely helpful We spent the evening talking and sharing a meal which Avri made. The apartment itself is very spacious and well appointed. It'(email hidden) to stay if you want to explore the north. I would stay here again and hope to meet Avishay's family again.

  • Lovely downstairs appartement, with excellent hosts. Talli and Avri couldn't be kinder. Kitchen is basic, but well equipped. The appartment is roomy, fairly cool and once outside, has excellent views of the mountains. Kiryat Tiv'on is the perfect place to explore the Israels north.
