Hi, Im Erez - 28 yr old, I work in the field of green energy.
I live in the rural northen part of Israel,
been using air bnb for over a year now and I think its fantastic!
First in English then in Hebrew.
Great house, great location, great potential, but... The house is VERY poorly maintained! The house has tenants during the weekdays who don't consider cleanliness their first priority. The pool is murky and has glass shards from beer bottles around it so walking barefoot for kids is out of the question. The jacuzzi seats are covered with green algae there are cigarette butts all over the lawn. The house is NOT clean! There is not even dish soap to wash the dishes manually. The dish washer is clogged and doesn’t clean (same goes for the washer (clothes)) the beds look like someone woke up in them an hour ago. There is trash under the beds and the trash cans were not emptied. The blankets, towels, pillows are stained and simply stuffed clumsily into closets. I could go on and on but you get the picture. Bottom line is: if you are a bunch of guys organizing a bachelors party then this place is fine. However, if you are looking for a "luxury getaway" look elsewhere. Shame, could be a great locale.
אחלה בית, אחלה מיקום, אחלה נוף אבל, הבית לא מתוחזק בכלל! בבית גרים אנשים במהלך ימות השבוע. לדיירים הנ"ל לא אכפת מנקיון ותחזוקת הבית. הבריכה מטונפת עם שברי זכוכית מפוזרים על הרצפה סביבה כך שהילדים לא יכולים להסתובב יחפים, הדשא מלא בדלי סיגריות, מושבי הג'קוזי מכוסים מכוסים בירוקת פחים לא מרוקנים, אשפה מתחת למיטות, לא היה סבון לרחיצת כלים, המדיח ומכונת הכביסה סתומים, המקלחות סתומות, המיטות נראות כאילו מישהו הרגע יצא מהן והמצעים מוכתמים וזרוקים בתוך הארונות. יכולתי להמשיך עוד ועוד אבל הענין ברור אני חושב. הסייפא של הסיפור: אם אתם מתכננים מסיבת רווקים יש לכם אחלה מקום. אם אתם מחפשים מקום בקלאס, נקי ומסודר בצורה מינימלית לארוע משפחתי אז חפשו במקום אחר.
חבל, יכול להיות מקום מדהים!
The reservation was canceled 15 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
We had an awesome time at this beautiful, unique house overlooking the kinneret. We were here with a bunch of friends celebrating my 30th birthday. We relaxed, ate, hung out in the jacuzzi (which Erez just recently fixed right before we arrived), and did some hiking in the area.
The only reason we didn't rate it 5 stars was there were a few minor things that needed fixing. There were a couple of lights that tripped the entire electricity (which we had to tape off and not use), dishwasher didn't work (thats fine - we just did a bunch of dishes by hand), and the heating downstairs wasn't working (but upstars was wonderful in the winter).
Honestly - we are a happy bunch who goes camping all the time - so this was very much a luxury getaway no matter what. Just make sure to check in with Erez before on what might not be working prior to booking. It's such a big house with many moving parts (multiple showers, rooms, electricity, heating, water, pool and jacuzzi, etc) that there's a lot of upkeep involved.
Overall 8/10 - the view and capacity to hold that many people is worth every dollar :)
We'll probably be back at some point in the future.
Amazing house, with exceptional view, wow!
Erez was a good host and fixed the small glitches fast.
Definitely would go there again.
we had a great time with an amazing view
Villa superbe avec une vue magnifique. La gentillesse de l’accueil fait que le séjour a été réussi.
A recommander vivement.
Erez and his wife Shira were our guests in the studio in Neve Tzedek. Both are charming, responsible, polite and respect their surroundings. I highly recommend them to anyone.
Erez and his wife were fantastic guests. They arrived on time, kept in touch prior to the key exchange, and left the place exactly as they found it.
Erez and Shira stayed in my guest room for 3 nights. They were very considerate, very quiet and left the room tidy. I can definitely recommend them both as guests and hope they enjoy the remainder of their U.S. trip.
Erez and his wife Shira are very gracious guests! They stayed at my apartment in NYC and were very respectful of my things and apartment. They kept the place tidy and left it in the same condition I left it in. They are very nice people and I highly recommend them to anyone looking to rent their home.
Erez is great person, full of life happiness and usually travels with his amazing wife Shira. both of them are so cute that you'd want to keep them at your place forever :)
