Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We came with two children, the daughter si one year old.
    We were visiting our family in the area and were looking for a comfortable place.
    The Place is Spacious, very clean, very comfortable and located two minutes away from the highway. It took us about 15 minutes to reach anywhere in the area like the Zoo and 25 minutes to reach Haifa and the Carmel.
    Rina and Buki made us feel at home right away so we had a feeling this was our home away from home so for the next time we will plan a trip like this, the place will be our first choice for accommodation.

  • Rina and Buky are amazing rockstar quality hosts. They are delightful, informative, caring and truly lovely people who have a beautiful home. We have learned so much about Israel's history and current social and political issues, covered places we'd never had thought possible without their help, provisions and guidance, and had the opportunity to meet four members of their beautiful family. The apartment was a perfect fit for our family of four. Everything was in order, comfortable and clean, and they always made sure we had what we needed. Location couldn't have been more perfect to explore the north, as the private apartment is about a 2 minute drive from a major highway. There is also a mini-market, a local supermarket as well as a very nice playground all easily accessible and within the complex. We've fallen in love with Israel in great part due to Rina and Buky's warm hospitality, attention and time. Their friendship is something we will treasure always.

  • Rina's description, "your perfect home away from home" is, if anything, an understatement. The second we saw the place, I felt like I was home, and although there's a separate entrance for guests, the apartment is attached to Rina's and Buky's home, which is spectacular-it was the first house built in the neighborhood 15 years prior, and as you've probably read in other reviews, not only is the bread in the morning tradition most welcome, but the aroma of the house when you arrive is so welcoming. We arrived late in the afternoon, and Rina had just finished baking from-scratch pretzels, which were shared with us-yum! Additionally, Rina started us out with peanut butter, jam, fresh vegetables and fruit-such a warm and caring hostess.
    The apartment is huge and my 21-year old daughter (a student at Tel Aviv University) who was traveling with my wife and I, had her best night's sleep during our travels, without having her own bedroom. We enjoyed the just relaxing in the apartment, as well as using the kitchen to make dinner and breakfast. Using Airbnb offers the opportunity to really meet people who likewise want to meet people, and not just a financial transaction. In that respect, spending our only evening with Rina and Buky after dinner provided us with that exact experience. We talked with each other as if we were old friends, which I felt we would be, even to the point of inviting my daughter to stay in touch, and if she needed anything or wanted to visit, they would welcome her with open arms. Also, Rina and Buky, offered great suggestions of where to spend the little amount of time we had on our only full day of sightseeing. My only regret is that I did not plan better so that we could have spent more time at this wonderful apartment with these wonderful people. I highly recommend that you give yourselves the opportunity to stay here!

  • I truly felt like this was my home away from home. Thank you Rina!

  • Rita and Buky are exceptional and ultra-attentive hosts. They're always ensuring that our stay was pleasant and asking if we need any help. They gave us a fresh home baked bread every morning and they were kind enough to wash some of our clothes. Could not ask for more.
    The place is very clean and bright and it's equipped with everything you might need,
    The house is located in a suburban area near haifa. There isn't much nearby to do but it's a perfect base camp to explore the north of the country by car, which was exactly what we looking for. It was been a very enjoyable experience staying here.

  • Many thanks to Rina and Buki for the warm welcome and their valuable advice on route planning . Every morning we had fresh bread cooked by Rina . Perfect place for exploring the Galilee and northern Israel . Available Haifa and Mount Carmel , Acre , Nazareth, the Sea of ​​Galilee and the many other attractions of this area .
    Rina's-house itself is very comfortable and fashionable , situated among the same wonderful homes in the new area of ​​Kiryat Ata among the picturesque hills . It was very interesting Rina's idea to name the streets of the district by the French Impressionists .
    Thanks again , Rina and Buki .

  • Rina and her family are very nice, caring and generous people. It was a pleasure to meet them and have them take care so well of us. They were available and always eager to help. Rina brought us some freshly cooked bread every morning and had also left some milk, fruits and vegetables in the kitchen when we arrived. We even had a drink with them to celebrate the new year.

    The flat is new, spacious and very nice, exactly as it appears on the photos. It is in a residential area of Kyriat Ata and you definitely need a car to get there and see the region. The flat is in the first floor of Rina's house but has a separate entrance, so it is not a problem.

    All in all, a great flat, a great family and a great experience. If you have a car and are planning to spend a few days visiting the Galilee region, this is the place you want to stay!

  • Rina and Buky's apartment was perfect for our trip through northern Israel. They were extremely hospitable hosts, providing maps and information for the places we wanted to visit, as well as fruit, vegetables, eggs and milk in the fridge when we arrived. Each morning, they baked delicious bread for breakfast. The apartment was clean and spacious, with a separate entrance for us. It is in a quiet location, close to Caesarea, Akko, and Nazareth, among other cities. We had no problems with the internet connection, and Rina and Buky were very kind and friendly. The beds were comfortable and warm, just like our overall experience. I highly recommend staying here.

  • We totally enjoyed our stay with Rina & Buki! Their hospitality goes far beyond what would normally be expected. They are willing to go to all means to help make your stay comfortable. Their home is in a quiet neighborhood but also right off a main road and close to attractions.

    The guest unit is large and lovely. Everything is in wonderful taste and immaculate! The kitchen has all utensils you could possibly need. There was a lovely choice of foods in the unit for breakfast and snacks.

    Rina & Buki made us feel like personal guests and we look foward to staying with them again in the future!
