A beautiful cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely rental cottage for a week last April and could not have been more pleased. The design, furnishings, and garden are beautiful, the location convenient for the German Colony's main street, Emek Refa'im, yet set back on a quiet street. The owners were extremely pleasant to deal with and immediately took care of a very tiny fixit issue (nothing that affected our stay). We would happily stay there again and recommend it as highly as possible.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for six days in Judy's cottage and enjoyed every day. The cottage is well-maintained and cosy, the terrace is fine. Everything is quiete near and the German Colony is a good place to be. Contact with Judy was easy.

We will highly recommend the cottage!!

Adorable and Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here! The cottage was clean, comfortable, and perfectly located. It was perfect for me, my husband, and two kids, 11 and 13. Each morning , we ate breakfast together and discussed our day's plans. In the evening, after a long day of sightseeing, we relaxed on the couch together, read, and played games. This cottage felt like a home away from home.

Beautifully decorated, peaceful haven

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay here and it will be our "go to" place whenever we are in Jerusalem. A couple of short blocks from all the comforts of Emek Rephaim, and a 20 minute walk from the Old City, you couldn't ask for a better location. It is tucked in down a lane, which makes it a truly quiet oasis. The apartment is artfully decorated and well outfitted. And a rarity in Israel: it has sufficient heating to keep the place warm when the weather is cold.

Wonderful stay at this charming cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the cottage. It is exactly as pictured and immaculate. Judy and Aaron are excellent hosts and have a great design sense. They made our stay very enjoyable. There were even fresh flowers and cookies that greeted us upon our arrival. The cottage is very tranquil with a small garden in front and a very pleasant patio off the bedroom, perfect for enjoying a glass of wine. It is in the heart of the German colony area of Jerusalem with many restaurants and cafes within a few minutes walk. Both the bed and the sofa bed were comfortable. It is an ideal base for exploring Jerusalem. We would definitely stay here again and will recommend the cottage to our friends who will be coming to Jerusalem.

Und wieder war es ein toller Aufenthalt

  • 5 of 5

Die Lage des Cottage ist ideal. Es liegt sehr zentral und doch ruhig genug, um nach einem erlebnissreichen Tag zu entspannen. Die Altstadt kann man bequem in etwa 20 min. zu Fuß erreichen. In direkter Nähe gibt es gute Einkaufsmöglichkeiten und sehr schöne Restaurants, so dass man die Wahl hat zwischen Selbstversorgung und Essengehen. Busse und Taxen sind in 5 min. zu Fuß zu erreichen. Für Besucher mit Mietwagen steht in der Nähe ein kostenloser öffentlicher Parkplatz zur Verfügung. Das Vermieterehepaar wohnt direkt nebenan. Sie sind sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit dabei aber immer diskret im Hintergrund. Dies war unser zweiter Aufenthalt im Cottage und wir freuen uns schon auf unseren nächsten Aufenthalt hier in Jerusalem.
