I speak English and Hebrew, you are welcome to contact me about the apartment and I will get back to you.
Ron's place is a magical apartment right in the heart of Old Jaffa. It's spacious and very clean. I really enjoyed my stay and would definitely recommend it. The only downside was that I wasn't able to use the kitchen to cook for an unknown reason. So, if you'd like to cook I'd suggest clearing it with Ron ahead of time.
Response from Ron:
If you need to cook for 12 people a dinner the place is too small. Sorry.
The apartment is located in the best part of town: right in the heart of Jaffa (which is also the prettiest area of Tel Aviv) and just 5 min far from the beach.
The location is great also because you will find yourself among art galleries, very cool restaurants and there is every morning a nice vintage market in the street.
If you are planning to rent a car, you’ll have the chance to park very close (I parked 100 meters far) but still, you will be 2 min far from taxes and bus lines.
The flat is great for 2 people: a comfortable double bed at the first floor and at ground level there is a big living room and a kitchen provided with all you need to prepare a meal. As far as we were concerned it was all very clean and neat. We were a couple but I think 3 people could easily fit there.
Ron has been the nicest guy with us. As soon as I got there, he took me around the block to show me where to eat and what I should have done first. He made sure we always had clean towels and he was there for any advice or question we had along the journey.
I think the place has a great value for money. Even talking with the taxi drivers I had the confirmation that the price was great according the location and the size of the flat.
I’d finally recommend the place to all, If I’ll ever go back to Tel Aviv I’ll try to book the same place for sure!!
Ron's apartment was nice, and in a fabulous location.
The apartment is quite difficult to find, being tucked away down a small alleyway. This is part of its charm.
The apartment we were allocated was not the one advertised in the photos; it was similar, but with a smaller, darker kitchen. Ron informed us that the kitchen was not really intended to be used by guests, however. This surprised us.
Make sure you have Ron's Israeli number, not the (US) number he lists, which goes to voicemail.
Ron was unable to accommodate our request to leave our bags at the apartment after we checked out.
Ron was nice and happy to help us where he was able.
Despite what previous reviews have stated, I would like to express my satisfaction with this experience.
Ron went out of his way to be helpful above and beyond the call of duty by guiding me step by step towards the apartment when my GPS was not working properly. In addition to this, he was happy to allow us to leave our suitcases in the apartment free of charge.
He was helpful enough to direct me to free parking near to the apartment.
This apartment is quite simply in the very finest position from which to explore Yafo, you simply cannot find a better location.
I have deducted one star simply because I think he gave us the wrong apartment. he has two in the same location and I think he inadvertently gave us the wrong, slightly more spartan one.
Vacationers who like to retire early should be aware that there can be noises entertainment in the early evening and that during the day there may be noise from nearby construction, however this in no way interfered with out enjoyment, everything is quiet at night.
So in conclusion a great stay and a welcoming, amenable and helpful host. Thank you Ron, we will see you again somE time.
Located in the beautiful old town of Jaffa, the apartment is very spacious and comfortable, but dirty (kitchen, toilets, sheets, etc...)!
We had a great stay at Ron's very spacious apartment. The place is located in the picturesque part of Jaffa - very close to the harbor, the beaches and the nightlife. There is wifi, a big kitchen with everything you need and plenty of air condition to keep you cool on the hot summer days.
We didn't actually meet Ron who was on vacation, but he had made sure that someone was there to hand over keys and let us in.
Arpartnent is spacious and clean . Neighborhood is very cool day and night .its quiet yet close to many bars and restaurants and abulafia bakery which is open 24 hrs Need better towels and sheets which can easily be solved
Host can us a better decorator as well :)
Ron's apartment is very well located, in the middle of the old town of Jaffa, comfortable and romantic. Everything is brand new inside the apartment, but you can also find nice ancient furniture.
Ron was quick to get back to us. He was very helpful and filled with suggestions of where to visit. The studio apartment is in a great location in the old arts district - near the hanging tree - great landmark. The location of the apartment was difficult to find as there was not a number on the tiny door. However with the help of some shop owners, Ron was phoned and he met us outside on the street. The studio is new but it had not been cleaned of the workman's materials - dust and drywall goop on cupboards floor and shower doors. We spent an hour cleaning it and it was fine. Luckily Ron was available as clean linens were not out so he went upstairs to get some. All in all it was a pleasant stay and we enjoyed the easy access to art galleries, cafes, restaurants, the port and the beach. All within walking distance. This will be a great spot for people to stay if they want to enjoy the best of Jaffa.
Stayed at Ron's place in July 2013 twice for couple of days. The apartment has a perfect location: Old Jaffa,port, bars and restaurants just 5 min walk. Very recommended for those who have an artistic view of the world. NB Ron is helpful, smily and friendly))
