Rina was a fantastic host and her lovely home felt just like, well, home. Will gladly come back anytime.
Shhh! Don't tell anyone about this amazing place I found in the North. Let's keep it a secret.
What's the first thing we all look for on airbnb? Is it the accommodations? The location? The host? Well, I'm here to tell you that all three here were absolutely amazing. For the past couple of days I've been trying to put into words how wonderful Rina and Buky are. I can't really express it in words. All I can say is that my heart aches right now as I write this because I have already begun to miss them. You can read the other posts here and the others will describe the daily freshly-baked bread and the modern, clean apartment. You'll see that others have commented about what a relaxing, quiet neighborhood you will be situated in. But no one can describe to you (not even me) how you will "feel" if you stay here. For lack of better words, I will try to describe it - You will feel welcomed, cared-for, safe, warm and loved as though you were part of the family.
But please - Shhhhh. Let's keep this our little secret. Don't tell anyone what you've read. I will be back again and again and again. I wouldn't want you to let anyone else take this place before you get here.
This is our second time staying with Rina and Buky, and the reason is obvious-the apartment itself is delightful, comfortable and quite accommodating-but the real reason is the hospitality and graciousness of of our hosts. Last year, we stayed for just one night and we knew that we had limited ourselves too much. This year, we booked for 5 nights-still not enough....too much to do and see in the North, but always a pleasure to come back to our apartment that feels like home. What enhanced the experience was spending time just chatting with Rina and Buky, seeking ideas for places to go, sharing our experiences of what we did and saw during the day, etc. An added treat-we met their daughter, Yael, who completed her military service last year and temporarily was living at home, and their older son, Alon, who is a carpenter living in the Golan. Every minute there, we felt like mishpacha (family). Of course, waking up every day to a fresh loaf of Rina's bread, including challah on Shabbat, as well as on that first day, coming into an apartment with a refrigerator stocked with milk, peanut butter and jelly, eggs, fruit and vegetables, who wouldn't feel welcome? Allow me to give another example of Rina and Buky-my wife and I were on a guided tour at Beit She'arim, about 20 minutes away, when my daughter who lives in Tel Aviv, confirmed that she was on the train coming up for a visit-I knew we would not get to the train station in time (assuming we would not get lost finding it), and I mentioned it to Rina who volunteered to get our Jordana-which she did. As for Buky, he invited Jordana to join them when they visit Alon and Buky's sister in the Golan, a place that Jordana wants to visit...as I said, mishpacha. On our last day, we said "goodbye", but we meant 'l'hitraot'...sort of "until we see you again".
This was the most attractive and well-equipped airbnb we stayed during 3 weeks in Israel. We appreciated the cleanliness, eggs and vegetables in the refrigerator to go along with our fresh-baked bread, blinds to keep the room completely dark in the morning, TV and wifi, and a microwave. We enjoyed talking to Buky, but unfortunately our schedules didn't allow us to meet Rina. It's in a central location between Haifa and the Galilee, but a car seems absolutely essential.
Rina and Buddy were very welcoming. The location and area are very nice. The apartment is simple but everything we needed. She baked fresh bread for us each morning.....my children loved it! We very much enjoyed our stay!
These are fine apartments. Very purely, are equipped by all necessary for rest. Rina and Buky very hospitable owners :-) Every morning they baked for us fresh bread. Near the house a fine garden with tangerines. The house is conveniently located, to Haifa 15 min. by car. Glad about 10 min. by car are a beautiful beach about the city of Akko. We looked for good housing in a quiet place and remained are very happy with Rina's house. Thanks Rina and Buky :-)
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Rina and Buky's place. The appartment was extremely clean and well-appointed - they seem to have thought of absolutely everything and are clearly dedicated to providing their guests with the best possible service. There were plenty of spare towels, pillows, etc., and the fridge was stocked with enough basic items that, together with the daily supply of delicious home-made bread, meant breakfast for our entire trip was taken care of. Oh, and they even offered to do our laundry (which we took them up on once).
We found the appartment very child-friendly: in addition to the cleanliness, high-quality workmanship and orderliness of the appartment, there was a comfortable cot and bedding, a high chair, plastic bowls (etc.) and a stair gate.
Rina and Buky are happy to tell you about the local sights and give useful tips about their local neighbourhood (e.g. the local supermarkets, chldren's play area), and they are lovely and engaging to talk to. If you need anything, you just have to ask, if they haven't thought of it first and offered already.
We are an English/ Dutch/ Hebrew speaking family and we love to meet people from all over. Every guest we have allows us to learn the art of hosting and we get ideas for improvements all the time. Let us be your hosts!!! We are worth it!!
