A welcoming home away from home, in a tranquil little street just a block away from the beach and the shops, cafes, shuls and public transport of Ben Yehuda. All three bedrooms are a good size - master double bedroom with its own private bathroom and extra single bed, double room and twin room share main bath. There is off-street parking, fully stocked and equipped kosher kitchen, equipment for Shabbat-observant guests, and a lift giving step-free access to the apartment. Flexible check-in/out.

The space

Comfortable (125 sq m) luxurious kosher apartment with three large bedrooms, on one of Tel Aviv's most desirable streets.

The master is a double with optional day-bed added, ample storage and en suite shower room. If you just wish to book this room, please visit our other listing at http://www.airbnb.com/rooms/41999

The second room is a full double. If you wish to just book this room, please visit our other listing at http://www.airbnb.com/rooms/8128520

The third is a single/twin room. If you wish to just book this room, please visit our other listing at http://www.airbnb.com/rooms/489660

Additionally there is a toddler cot and a spare single mattress which can be used if required.

The entrance to Gordon beach is at the end of the road, and the shops and bars of Ben Yehuda are just as close. Nonetheless it's incredibly quiet, and a good night's sleep is aided by 100% blackout blinds and quiet-running ceiling fans to keep you cool in the summer.

In the winter, if it gets chilly, our main bathroom has a lovely spa bath to relax in.

We also host meals on request, for any occasion from traditional Friday night dinners for groups of up to 12, with prices and menus ranging from 3-course heimische (100NIS) to 5-course gourmet with wine flight (250NIS), to regular "CuHu" (Cook-up and Hook-up) evenings for singles to come together and learn how to cook, for less than the price of either speed-dating or cookery classes, and we can prepare packed lunches and eat-in dinners on request.

We are happy to provide comprehensive concierge services, including making restaurant reservations and recommendations, access to private parties and rooftop pools, organising airport taxis with known drivers at preferred rates, and so on.

Guest access

Guests are welcome to use all parts of the flat, including the kitchen. However, please be aware that this is my home, so I am entrusting you with all the kitchen equipment, the kashrut, and my ingredients and drinks cabinet! I operate on a fair-use basis, ie a sprinkle of herbs and spices or a dash of oil is quite okay, but if you go any further, please replace what you use, both for my sake and any guests who follow. There is a big supermarket less than a minute's walk from the flat. If you cannot do so, please at least let me know what has been finished and leave a small contribution.

Other things to note

Whilst Tel Aviv does not have high crime rates, flats that look empty are an easy target. Please absolutely ensure that all windows are closed, the front door locked, and the alarm set when you are out of the flat.

Shomer Shabbat guests - I can provide you an urn, hotplate, timeswitches, fixed hallway lighting etc.

We keep a strictly kosher kitchen so we ask that you use it only after some training, or allow us to cook for you! Please read the rules in the house manual you will be sent before arrival, and be aware that I will have to pass on any cost of replacing kitchen items which are intentionally misused (ie if you buy bacon, or ignore the separate dairy/meat cutlery and crockery).

During the summer months, while it can get hot, the apartment catches a good breeze most of the time and has ceiling fans in every room. The aircon should only be used sparingly, not left on all night or at any time you are not in the flat. I have an itemised electricity bill, so reserve the right to pass on the cost of excessive use. You can check the meter yourselves on arrival (in the hall cupboard) - normal summer usage is about 500 units a week max. Anything more than a few shekels over that is chargeable at 0.55 NIS per unit.

You must also acknowledge
Potential for noise - There may be some construction noise during the weekdays. It is illegal between 7pm and 7am - let me know if it happens so I can file a complaint.

Michaels place was amazing! Clean and big enough for my family and friends to have a wonderful Shabbat. The apartment was very well equipped, welcoming, and only 5 minutes from the best beach in TLV. The kosher kitchen was great for my more religious friends. Michael was very welcoming and was very helpful when needed. Thanks so much for an awesome weekend in TLV!

Spacious and well equipped apartment in a great location in Tel Aviv. Close to the beach, shopping, synagogues and hotels. It is easy to live in the apartment. Lots of beds and sleeping space. A very easy to use kitchen with lots of cooking supplies, condiments and staples already there. Owner is very responsive and eager to ensure a good experience for guests. A very comprehensive list of detailed instructions for the facility was supplied, along with many useful tips on where to go for supplies and for fun. Our many questions before, during and even after our stay received prompt responses.

I have booked this apartment for my friend and his son. My friend told me that this apartment was one of the best he stayed in Tel-Aviv. He haven't seen for a long time so fully equipped kitchen! From my side I would like to say that Michael was always in contact, he helped with any question I had, very organized. Thank you Michael, hope to stay in your apartment again!

Location of the flat is perfect. Really close to the beach. Ruppin street is quiet, so you will sleep very well. The flat itself is very spacious with a huge living room/dining room. Michael was very responsive and his explanations were clear and simple. If I had to say something negative, there was no chanel on the TV. But who cares about TV when it s super sunny outside... Overall 5 stars for the flat. I would definitely come back again.

Awesome location, very spacious and very accommodating host.

Interaction with guests

If I am renting out my whole place it is because I am travelling - most likely abroad but sometimes within Israel and sometimes even just elsewhere in Tel Aviv. I can always be reached by email and (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN), and usually have a friend or agent available in the city for emergencies.

About Michael

I moved to Israel just over 5 years ago from London, absolutely love living here, and especially like it when guests dare to make the journey to our so-called war zone and then say "but this is nothing like what we saw on the news!"

I love cooking, football, languages, travel, history and a good old-fashioned debate. I also insist on a nightly sunset swim at the beach just at the end of my street. And I am a complete nerd on the subject of frequent flier miles and getting upgrades...
