“Luxury on the beach !” You cannot get closer to the beach than this! The proximity to Tel -Aviv is unbeatable- 10 minutes on the highway! Bat Yam is an excellent alternative to staying in Tel Aviv- because Tel Aviv is significantly pricier, does not come with parking and has tons of traffic. Taking a cab from Bat Yam to Tel-Aviv is also very easy and reasonable.
I spent 10 nights with my extended family ( 7 other guests) at Gavriel's apartment in Bat Yam-,everyone had a wonderful time. The apartment is exactly as described in the ad. This apartment was unique in that it actually had beds for 8 (not like most other ads). Gavriel is extremely responsive (as this is his own property, he is not a broker of many properties, which is quite common). For example, a lightbulb in the master bedroom burnt out the first night, although Gavriel had already left, he managed to have it replaced within 5 minutes by a friendly neighbor!
The apartment is situated on the 20th floor with stunning views of the ocean, there is a full time doorman 24/7, and on site parking for one vehicle. The apartment comes equipped with a washer and dryer ( critical for a large group) and even a dishwasher- also very helpful when trying to clean up quickly after breakfast! He also provided us with 3 sets of keys which was very helpful as we were a large group and would often separate into smaller groups during the day.
Gavriel is reliable, friendly and honest. We would highly recommend this apartment to anyone looking to stay in or around Tel Aviv.
“Fabulous Dubai pied a terre” This apartment is just lovely with a balcony over looking the beach and a communal swimming pool! The owner is very friendly and extremely helpful, he sent us information on local restaurants, interesting sights to see and even told us the shop in front delivered groceries (comes very handy if you don't want to carry bottles of water). The beach is across the street and has many restaurants and shops which makes this place a great location to stay in.
I will definitely be staying here again!
“Lovely Villa” I stayed here for a week with my extended family of 10 people--including two teenagers, four young adults and one grandmother. The main floor rooms were spacious and beautiful. A large diningroom table easily accommodated all of us for meals, card games and laptop use. The hosue was very clean. The provision of the maid meant we never had to do dishes or wash towels etc. (a holiday must for me!). The bedrooms were very nice (except for the maid's room in the basement, which was not very nice. This will not be an issue unless you require 6 bedrooms.) The bathrooms were also clean and well functioning.
It is an easy walk from the villa to a popular all day breakfast restaurant (we all loved that) and to restaruants and bars on the beach.
The neighbourhood is very nice and interesting to walk in. We used the villa as our central base from which we saw nearly all of Israel. The location worked well for our driver.
The owner checked on us regularly to be sure we were able to find what we needed and operate all utilities etc. (We needed heat and we got it)
The roof top hot tub provided a lovely view and the pool would have been nice to use had it been warmer.
We would absolutely go back! We highly recommend it.
