Self taught classical painter
Laurel was the perfect host and so welcoming! She even took me on trips to the Dead Sea and other places of interest and even offered to pick me up at times when she could. She is a fantastic portrait artist and is fascinating to watch paint. She invited me for meals and we each cooked at times. She always made Shabbat dinner for us and alternatively invited me to a friend's home for Shabbat. Her apartment is so comfortable and beautiful, loved my room! And a great view from the balcony! Location has a bus stop right in front of the apartment building and it is only a 20 minute walk to a large indoor mall and to the train station. Hope to return to stay again soon!
I have known Laurel for almost 20 years. We have shared many meals and holiday celebrations in California and Israel. I have also house sat for her. Laurel’s place is always both clean and orderly and she is consistently a gracious host. You will be comfortable in this environment and your needs will be attended to more than satisfactorily. Should you be a sociable person, Laurel is capable of intelligent conversation on a number of topics. Cleanliness, comfort, consideration, and “people skills” … I may have missed something, but Laurel will not. You will be at ease with this choice for accommodation – and may also find a good friend.
I have know Laurel for over 30 years when she lived in California. She was the maid of honor at my wedding and I would love to come out and visit her. I moved to Colorado and whenever I came to town I stay at her home and she made delicious meals for me. I have nothing but praise for her kindness and graciousness as a friend and a hostess. Laurel would be a blessing to have in your life on all levels.
How long have I known Laurel and been to her homes? 20 years enough?! Laurel is now my "home away from home" when I travel and have to work in Jerusalem. Her welcome, pleasant home is always refreshing, clean and comforting. The bed in the guest bedroom is comfortable, the livingroom and kitchen available - and hot water ALL the time for showers. The city of Modiin is accessible from train and bus and easy to find by car. I give her two thumbs up and 5 star rating!!!
Laurel is a friend of long-standing from when she moved into my Laguna Beach, Calif., neighborhood to care for her mother. She keeps a meticulously neat and welcoming house that hosts dinners for guests, whose every need is thoughtfully anticipated. I'm confident any guest staying in Laurel's home will enjoy the experience.
I have known Laurel for almost 9 years. My wife and I used to meet with her on a weekly basis for good talks and meals. Laurel is kind and courteous, clean and gracious - still. I can verify all of that because I can see her apartment when we (website hidden). She is an amazing artist, and human being. She will tell you how it is, but she is not pushy or bossy. She just lets you know the firm boundaries - very important in a host, or from the standpoint of a guest.
Laurel Sternberg is a lovely lady who i have known for over thirty years. She is warm, gracious and honest and always pleasant company. Her home is clean, neat and has great style.. You would be lucky to secure a living space with her!
