The space

Check-in: 3pm, check-out: 12 noon.

If you'd like groceries for breakfast (vegetables, eggs, bread, cheeses, tahini): 50 shekels per person.

Guest access

The house has several unique features - lovely patio with an area for lighting a fire, a herb garden, mud brick arches and a fireplace with plenty of firewood. We also have free WiFi, a fruit and vegetable garden, and of course - a gate leading directly to the wild desert.

Interaction with guests

I'm almost always around Mitzpe, and if I'm not - one of my friends can usually help if there's any need.

The neighborhood

The "New Neighborhood" of Mitzpe Ramon is small and quiet, and right on the edge of the desert. It is very close to the Spice Roads Quarter (a 3-minute walk), where there are cafes, galleries and my own workshop (see under 'other things to note').

Getting around

Free parking in the street. For guests who arrive by public transit, it is recommended to take the train to Beer-Sheva and continue with bus number 65 (best), 64 or 60 (slowest) of the Metropoline company.

Other things to note

If you are travelling from Tel Aviv to Eilat or to Sinai, Mitzpe Ramon is a really stunning location to stop and relax, before continuing your journey. It is also a center for desert hiking, jeeps tours, stargazing and other adventures.
Mitzpe Ramon is a very small town, surrounded by the mighty desert, on the cliff overlooking Makhtesh Ramon - a unique geological phenomenon. There are lots of locations to hike or drive to, and plenty of serene and quiet gems you can find in the desert.
On the other hand, in Spice Roads Quarter (formerly the "industrial zone") you can find galleries, vintage boutique shops, artisan shops, pubs and my own artisan carpentry workshop and gallery - you're more than welcome to visit!

Avital's house is a rustic pad that opens to the desert. It's located in the best part of Mitzpe Ramon, close to a great bakery and to Adama, a dance space open to the public. The house is clean, comfortable, it has a fireplace inside that invites you to wine and music, and a terrace that invites you to star-gazing. I encourage people to stay there at least three days because there's a lot to do and at the same time it's a perfect place to slow down.

One of a kind accomodation... the unique house on the brink of the desert was welcoming and clean, with beautiful handcrafted furniture. It was still very cold during the night so we enjoyed cozy evenings in front of the fireplace/woodburning oven.

My family loved Avital's place. A wonderful stay with a fun and funky vibe in thrown and in the home. We would unreservedly recommend this airbnb to everyone and will stay again if we are ever in area.

Avital's place is simply amazing. We had a wonderful time. The pictures don't even do it justice -- inside is cozy and beautifully built, and then the backyard literally opens up to the desert. Mitzpe Ramon is fantastic with great hiking, art galleries, and places to eat. Avital was an excellent host, communicative and helpful, even giving us a personal tour of the area. Kitchen was stocked with basic amenities, the place was immaculately clean, private, and comfortable. We would love to come back. Highly recommended!
