The house is a 3 minutes drive- there is free parking- to the centre and a 20 minute walk to the first beach. The mountains and main street are the same distances. There is also free parking on the street next the house. It has a beautiful view of the red mountains from the balcony and upper bedroom and high up, unlike many of the accommodation on offer which is low down and the sea from the kitchen. There is one double large spacious bedroom and easily accomadates one or two further mattresses. It is the perfect retreat for those wanting to be away from the tourist mile and yet 5 minutes away by car, longer to the south side beach where the corals and diving is. Pets are welcome. The house has its own natural cooling system built for the desert and is also eco friendly with desert coolers when you need a hand some times in the year. It is a simple but pretty place and your stay comes with Wifi, clean fresh towels for the home and the beach, fridge basics, complimentary tea and coffee etc.
There is a small basic kitchen which guests are welcome to use.
The local shops are a couple of minutes away including the local stores and supermarkets.
We can help also with tourist information in Eilat and can arrange daily tours to Petra, jeep safari tours to the desert and Sinai and Cairo and diving in the Red sea.
There is a fridge of basics to welcome you, desert coolers specifically designed to keep the house cool in the desert, wifi access and private balcony.
Interaction with Guests
We will welcome you and check you out and be on hand if there is anything to help you with within this relaxed and happy house. We can also help with arranging diving trips, desert tours or further afield such as Jordan and Egypt and make breakfast if requested at extra cost.
Our house is in the oldest part of eilat and had beautiful views. It is pretty and airy with a two minute walk to the supermarkets and restaurants. Everything is close by in this small town including bars, shops of every type, beaches (there are 15 along the coast each with with their own personality), banks and the museum/gallery.
One can get to the southern beaches by cab (they are a common method of transport in Eilat) or a bus from the buds station which is a 10 minute walk away or you can walk to the north beach in 20 minutes. There is also a bus a minute outside the house which goes into town and the suburbs in the mountains.
Other Things to Note
The house was built to enjoy the environment and is light and airy with 2 double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a cot for toddlers and 2 sofas which can be used as beds.
There is smoking only outside but plenty of smoking areas.
The upstairs bedroom which is large, bright and leads on to the balcony with fantastic views of the Red mountains
Lovely apartments. very spacious room with furniture and a comfortable bed. Spacious (email hidden)ry nice and friendly hostess
Very cozy, relaxing place somewhat near the city center and port area. This is a great spot in a house if you want to have a nice and relaxed time away from the hustle and bustle of the beach area. Room is large and has a balcony with a good view of the Jordanian side and you can sleep out in the stars if you so choose. It's in the top floor so you feel separated from the rest of the house. About a 10 min walk to center and around 20-30 to beach.
Sara wasn't there but rather another person called Mary was taking care of the place. This brings me to one big caveat of this place is that you should make sure whoever is actually hosting knows you are coming or you have some way to communicate with them. When I arrived Mary wasn't there and I had no way of getting in. Luckily Sara got in touch with me and was very helpful in finding me another place to stay and then gave me a free night to make up for it. Another thing is that the directions are hard to use and you are better off just getting in a cab instead of walking to it like I did. Besides these two issues everything else was great and Mary was extremely sweet and helpful. Very much recommend it there.
The location (Home) is a wonderful host.
The room was clean and confortable, It was an absolute pleasure staying with

About the Host, Sara
I have travelled to the States, Mexico and Canada which I adored and lots of European countries. I read a lot, love to watch movies and tend to my bees on an allotment I share . We think we are easy going and are a busy independent household.
