Charming, light, comfortable flat, all you could need, great owner, interesting area, close beach
We had a delightful, relaxing stay at Noa's. The flat was a terrific base, and we enjoyed hanging out there, sitting on the balcony or in the pleasant living area. Everything in the flt worked perfectly. Thanks to the owner's detailed introduction, we found ourselves at home in an unfamiliar area. We enjoyed the locality - beach, excellent local restaurant very nearby, the unexpected charms of Ajami. walking the promenade to the old Jaffa port and eating by the water, to old Jaffa on the hill and to the clock tower area, flea market etc. With our hire car easy to get into Tel Aviv with cheap municipal parking on the South side.. We also found it easy to get onto the Ayalon highway and drive everywhere we wanted to. Local buses seem OK too. Hope to return.
Great time at great place
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Noa's place near the sea in Jaffa. Plenty of parking (not so in most of Tel Aviv), easy walk to beaches (1/8 mile), restaurants (try Old Man in the Sea), and stores of all types, including for groceries. Nice walk - about a mile - into Tel Aviv along the sea promenade, past the old port of Jaffa. Everything in the unit worked like a charm, no issues at all. Noa is very well organized, friendly and easy to communicate with, even when we were 7 time zones apart.
Superb Israel Experience
If you are looking to avoid the Tel Aviv tourist trap and want to live like a local, this is the perfect place. I stayed for a month. The apartment is comfortable and the kitchen has everything a person could possibly need. It is air-conditioned, and the bedroom has a ceiling fan. The porch is a great place to sit or a great place to eat. The bathroom is large and has a great shower. There is plenty of free parking.
It is also the perfect triathletic paradise. Just across the street and down the hill is a swimming beach. Park Midron Yafo contains miles of multi-purpose paths that are great for walking, running, or biking. I rented a bike from Tal at 51 Shenkin (just up from the Carmel Market), and that was the perfect way to get around.
The location is also fairly convenient. I had a car for part of the time, but the bus is conveniently located on Yefet Street and Pierre Mendes France. The 10 goes to the Carmel Market, up Allenby Street, and to the Central Train Station. I preferred the 83 bus that goes to the Central Bus Station. From there, it is easy to catch the 405 bus to Jerusalem. Jaffa Port is about a 15 minute walk. There are plenty of local restaurant options.
For groceries, Yefet Street has everything between Pierre Mendes France and Donolo Ha Rofe. On the corner of Yefet and Pierre Mendes is Abu Hilweh which is great for chicken and meat. The service is very friendly. Just north of there is a fruit and vegetable "souk." Heading south of Abu Hilweh, on the same side of Yefet, is a small fish store. On the corner of Donolo Ha Rofe and Yefet is an adult beverage store. Across the street from there is Tran's Coffee Shop that has a large variety of spices, fresh dates, and other dried fruits. The prices at all places are comparable to other markets in the area and in Tel Aviv proper.
Best of all, though, was Noa's extremely customer-service oriented friendliness. Her response time to my initial inquiry was superb! Her reputation for "welcome home" gifts exceeded my expectations. Every week, she checked in with me to see if there was anything I needed. She is an excellent host!
My only concern is the noise from the soccer court directly across the apartment. Almost every night, men played robust games of soccer with a lot of shouting and arguing. Kedem Street is also noisier than I thought it would be. But this minor annoyance was well worth putting up with in light of all the other positives. I will definitely stay here again!
Lovely apartment, great host
Clean and fully equipped apartment, all you need in one place. We loved the location as it is close to the beach and close to all the busy streets and cafes.
Our host was super friendly and helpful.
Impeccably Renovated and Tastefully Decorated
A 3 minute walk to the Sea!”
I arrived to an immaculate and carefully maintained apartment. The owner was warm and welcoming – left wine and home-baked cake for my arrival. Owner was attentive to my needs and generous with her time. Washer-dryer appreciated during my stay of several weeks. The kitchen was well-equipped; the bathroom contemporary with a fantastic shower. The rooms were light and airy - high-ceilinged and Arab tile floors. I especially loved the neighborhood ambiance - a children's playground and much used soccer court just across the street - hearing the Muslim call to prayer, the neighborhood rooster competing with the birds singing in the park just two doors away. Several excellent restaurants within just a few blocks. A beautiful 15 minute walk along the Coast (cool sea breeze and warm Mediterranean sun) to the historic Jaffa Port and Art Colony, For those wanting a quiet home to return to, and easy access to exciting adventures, this apartment and Jaffa can't be beat! Highest recommendation. I intend to return in 2019!
Lovely modern apartment mixed with antique charm
A lovely location for a seaside vacation, clean modern fittings within a charming authentic Jaffa residence.
Plenty of room for a family gathering or a quiet space to watch the seas and the local environment. Parking was a real bonus too.
Loved feeding the birds, walking to the local shops and easy access by foot (20 mins) to the port and many of the other beautiful areas of Tel Aviv, the markets, old railway station and artist areas. We have already and would recommend staying here for anyone looking for a charming retreat in Jaffa.
