  • My wife and I had a lovely stay in this cottage. We found it to be just like the photos, simple, clean and adequate. Hadas and Shi were kind, unobtrusive hosts that were available when needed to answer questions or provide what we needed. We really enjoyed our stay. We were greeted upon our arrival with fresh cheeses and bread in the refrigerator which were gratefully enjoyed on the terrace in the afternoon sun. We also enjoyed being able to go up some stairs behind the cottage to a rooftop deck that enjoyed lovely views of the Ein Kerem valley and was furnished with a delightful swing love seat and chairs.

    We also enjoyed the peace and quiet of Ein Kerem while visiting Jerusalem as well as the fine restaurants and verdant gardens that were all around us...

  • Had a wonderful 2-month stay here from Nov-Dec 2013. Hadas and her family are lovely people and they made my time here a very memorable one.

    I was there by myself and the apt is perfect for one person. The neighbourhood is indeed very nice with some great restaurants and beautiful nature.

    Overall great experience!

  • The appartement is located in an idyllic garden with birds and cats. There were fresh herbs for tea and enough kitchen equipment to prepare simple meals for two persons. There is a stereo in the appartment and we enjoyed listening to music in the evening. In the morning we could take our breakfast on the quiet terrace. The nights are also very quiet and dark, even if there is no shutter on the window, but in the morning the sun shines in the room. The appartment is beautiful and perfect for a couple. The view over the hills of Ein Kerem is lovely, everything is so green and a good contrast to the city.
    Public transport to Jerusalem is close, bus #28 goes every 20 minutes to Mt. Herzl from where the lighttrain goes downtown.
    Hadas and her family were very helpful and made us feel at home.

  • We stayed in several Airbnb places during our trip to Israel and this one was the nicest, the apartment is 15 mins by car from the big underground parking near Jaffa gate so the distance from center is not a problem at all if you have a car and i guess you have public transport options as well. There are half a dozen bar and restaurants a 5 mins walk away. The place is quiet and peaceful, in a garden, very nice to get back to after a day of hustle and bustle in Jerusalem. Highly recommended!

  • This stay was the highlight of our vacation.
    Not only are Hadas and Shai perfect hosts, nice, responsive, kind, available, but they truly put their heart in making this place a dream.
    The garden is lush, beautiful, the surroundings are scenic, the interior is rustic in a very charming and elegant way, tastefully done.
    Easy to get to centre of the city from there even if you feel remote. Ein Karem is a breathtaking area, we highly recommend this house.
    We are considering coming back as it was so relaxing to stay there.

    p.s: The photos don't lie, this place is that cute!

  • We had a great time in hadas’s lovely residence. A quiet apartment in the beautiful area of Ein Karem. The site includes a magical seasoning garden and a peaceful porch under a juicy grapevine. It’s located a short time walk from the local restaurants and coffee shops.
    For those of you without a car it’s very comfortable to wander via public transport between the quit neighborhood and the centre of the city
    Hadas was very kind and helpful before, during and after our stay and we highly recommend it.

  • The room was very sweet and comfortable. Fully equipped with kitchen aids, books and music that makes you feel at home. It was big enough for the three of us - two grownups and a 2-years old kid (who really liked the blue bath!). The terrace with its grapevine, herb-garden and hammock was a perfect place for relaxing and enjoying the cool (!) summer evenings. Hadas was very pleasant and the overall atmosphere was warm and welcoming. The room is located in a small ally, a walking distance from the lively center of Ein-Karem and from the pine grove and nature surrounding the village.
    We enjoyed our stay there very much and would love to come back :)

  • My partner and I had a really great weekend at Hadas's little magical place. It really was the perfect getaway and Hadas was a really great hostess. Highly recommended!
