This apartment is amazing, it has 2 levels, one with a balcony and one with a rooftop terrace. It's super-modern and equipped with everything you need. The old city and the markets of Jaffa are just a few minutes away, and even the center of Tel Aviv is in walking distance.
Lely is a lovely host, it was nice meeting and talking to her.
Everything was perfect! Very nice Apartment, good located.
Lely's apartment is an absolute gem. It was a pleasure to stay here. Just a few minutes from the centre of Jaffa, it was very convenient. The apartment was clean, well laid out, comfortable and bright. The 3 areas to sit outside and enjoy the sun were delightful. The bathroom was perfect for being able to give our 2 year old a bath (not a given for a lot of apartments).
Communication with Lely and her family was excellent. Although we didn't meet them due to when we arrived and departed they gave very clear instructions on how to get in and out, it is just a shame we didn't get to thank them in person.
In summary, I would go back in an instant.
Tal's apartment is perfectly located walking distance mid distance between the flea market, the old town of Jaffa and the port. Plenty of buses nearby make it a breeze to get into the center of Tel Aviv if need be as well.
I would particularly recommend this duplex in warmer months (which means most months in Tel Aviv!) when you can fully benefit from the great outdoor space, including shower & toilet! The whole apartment is immaculate, a tiny bit spartan but very functional, and has all the amenities from hairdryer to washing machine.
It was a pleasure communicating with Tal, responsive, accomodating, friendly and I only wish we had had more time to talk.
Lely was a wonderful host. Even if we didn't meet her personally, the whole communication und organisation (check in and check out) was very easy. We felt very comfortable in Lely's appartment and would recommend it warmly to everyone: the flat offers a wonderful view over the roofs of Tel Aviv / Yafo, is nicely equipped and has everything you need and even more for a "feeling-good" - trip (or stay) in this very interesting city. The flat is located close to the fleemarket of Yafo, to nice bars and cafés. We're sure, that, if we come back to TA, we try to stay there again.
Excellent apartment. Nice view around Tel-Aviv. Very polite, positive, customer-oriented owner. But we had a little problem with hot water. We couldn't switch on hot water at night time.
I never got to meet Lely, but her apartment was fabulous and her daughter Tal was extremely kind, helpful and insightful from start to finish. The apartment could not have been more beautiful or better located in Jaffa. Tal took extraordinary efforts to ready the apartment for us even though we requested last minute reservations. You can't go wrong with the apartment or Tal, and she has great ideas on things to do.
It was lovely staying, the apartment is clean and comfortable, but the place is very loud. Construction is everywhere around the building. Forced to close every window to sleep. But the rest is nice! The owners are very friendly!
We had a fantastic time in Lely's appartment. The flat is very very pleasant, Very bright, nicely furnished and well equiped. The terrace is incredible with great view on the whole city. We loved the area. It is right next to the flea market (but in a quiet street). Great restaurants and bars around. Tal (Lely's daughter) is very nice and helpful. She was always very kind about answering our questions and even helped us finding a baby-sitter for our children. I am definitly returning !
A wonderful apartment with 2 balconies in an exciting part of Yafo-Tel Aviv! My parents stayed here for 2 nights and were very comfortable and happy - they were even greeted with a bowl of fresh fruit! Tal made check-in and check-out very easy. All was clean and just as pictured. Thank you Tal and Lely!!!
Lely's son Illay and his friend Ruven came over to stay in Amsterdam for 10 days. They took care of leaving our house clean and tidy, and they respected our house rules. Thank you for the wine from Israel you left us!
