You know this scene in "The Life Of Brian", where he says "We are all different" and someone shouts "I am not!"? well, that's me.
Victor's apartment was the perfect setting for our vacation!
The layout was perfect for our family, nicely decorated, filled with natural light and close to everything we needed (grocery stores, cafés, laundromat, easy walk to the park etc).
The apartment is an easy walking distance to the beach, stores and walk around Tel Aviv.
Victor was a great host. Directions and recommendations were waiting for us in the clean and welcoming apartment.
We will definitely be in touch when we come visit Tel Aviv again.
We enjoyed our week in Tel Aviv in your convenient flat,
Everthing was there and our first trip to Tel Aviv worked well.
Werner and friends
Lovely spacious apartment in a great neighborhood with easy access to transportation including the Bike Share. Clean, well equipped. Our host even bought some food for us when we arrived. Nice bright light and renovated kitchen and bath. We were 4 and there was plenty of room.
Victor was very helpful when needed.
I booked the apartment for my friends visiting Israel for 3 days.
Victor was easy to communicate and to negotiate, with a keen sense of humor. Also worth notice that he is not a real estate broker (of which I've seen a lot in Israel) and this add a bit of trustworthiness :)
The friends were arriving and departing late at night, Victor provided them with a detailed "house manual" and the ways to get\return keys - so they didn't even had a necessity to meet.
The flat match the description provided on airbnb, for us the most convenient things were the parking included (may be a problem in some central-north TA areas) and the easy transport accessibility, also good price/quality ratio.
So everything was "beseder"(OK).
We really enjoyed Victor apartment! We liked any detail, vintange furniture, light and disposition of the rooms. The area is very nice too.
Victor was a great host! Even before arriving he answered all our questions patiently. He provided food because we arrived on Sabbath. Also we had a space for parking our car on his grounds. I´m sorry we didn´t meet him, because from e-mail-contact he seems to be an interesting and humorous person. We liked the flat a lot. It´s true that it´s beautifully furnished and situated in a nice neighbourhood. We liked the cafes and small restaurants around the corner, and the supermarket within walking distance is well equipped. The flat is even suitable for someone using a wheelchair. Their are no steps, a reliably working elevator, all doors are broad enough for a small wheelchair and there is even a mural jut in the shower to sit on.
Our stay at Victors place was just great. Seamless check-in and check-out.
It is a very spacious flat and it's nicely decorated with lots of arts.
The kitchen is good equipped and we loved the gas stove.
He also left some food and gave us information about the neighborhood.
We had a great stay at Victors apartment and I warmly recommend him.
Our stay at Victor's was perfect for our needs. It is located in a fantastic area of Tel Aviv (the North End) and though it is not near the heart of all the attractions, it offers everything you will need for a comfortable and convenient visit.
If you are sensitive to noise, this may not be the best place for (website hidden) Aviv is a noisy city to begin with, but the flat is located near a very busy street and one of the bedrooms is right beside where the garbage trucks do their pick up at 6am a couple times a week. We managed to sleep well, though, but we live in London, so we are used to noise.
Victor was a great host and had everything prepared for our arrival and was available by phone for any questions. He also provided good maps and suggestions to eat, though I would say that the Arabic restaurant down the street should be recommended, as that is what satisfied our immediate hummous craving upon arrival.
If you want to feel like a local, cook your own food and be able to stroll around your own neighborhood, as well as venture out around town, this is a great place to stay. The flat is also perfectly located within walking distance to the big train station that can take you easily to all the great tourist town of the region.
Hope you enjoy!
Very likely the best host and a flat for that price we would dream with wife, Thankfully Victor accepted our booking the day before arrival and even met us at night, so we have not worried about anything.
Highly recommend to stay at his apartment and happy to know Victor, will definitely come back!
Response from Victor:
Spasiba for your warm words.
Victor est un hôte parfait et son appartement est magnifique, très lumineux et fonctionnel. Victor est très précis dans ses explications et grâce à lui nous nous sentons à l'aise pour circuler dans Tel Aviv, ses plans sont précieux pour se retrouver.
Merci pour tout. Si nous repassons par Tel Aviv c'est avec grand plaisir que nous reprendrons contact avec lui.
