The best vacation rental value in Jerusalem!

  • 5 of 5

The Shostak apartment at Rehov Rut 11 is the best vacation value in Jerusalem! It’s location is superb, on an attractive, tree-lined residential street that is a one or two minute walk from Emek Refaim, the main shopping street for restaurants and supermarkets. The apartment is large, clean, extremely well-kept, and is stocked with just about everything a vacationing family might want...right down to the numbers of three local taxis posted on the refrigerator. The owner is a pleasure to deal with, and his fee structure is most reasonable.

Comfortable, kosher, central Jerusalem apartment

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent two weeks in this lovely and well located Jerusalem apartment. It's the 3rd time we have stayed here in the past couple of years! The location is fantastic - heart of German Colony and walking distance from numerous restaurants and synagogues. The furnishings are comfortable, kitchen is kosher ( a big + for us), and the apt includes a washer/dryer and WiFi. We were able to host 15 guests for dinner in the spacious DR! Tzvi, the owner, is very responsive to any needs or questions. I would certainly stay there again!

THRILLED beyond belief!

  • 5 of 5

AMAZING! Not a detail was omitted. A perfect place to be home away from home! Perfect location, quiet street, comfortable, spacious, completely appointed kitchen, bath etc. and every amenity imaginable.

Immaculate and everything up to date.

The WELCOME booklet was invaluable.

I can't say enough good things about 438301!

Access to Emek Refaiim, as well as access to Tachana Rishona and a managable walk to the Old City if you're a walker.

I would recommend this property 1000%!.

True home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We spent three weeks in this apartment and it felt like home. Apartment is very large and comfortable. Owners thought of every detail starting from very cozy couch in the living room, large table in the dining room, very comfortable beds and very well equipped kitchen. Perfect location, close to shops , playgrounds and places to eat out. We were able to walk to Kotel with our 4 little children. We will be back!

Gem of an apartment

  • 5 of 5

Over the years my wife and I have stayed in many apartments in Jerusalem-- in Rehavia, Baka, and the

German Colony-- and in many ways, this apartment was the most comfortable and easiest to stay in.

Not the fanciest, but the most comfortable. The location of the apartment could not be better. The apartment is large, very well appointed, and-- what makes all the difference-- Tzvi and Gladys, the owner and manager, supply guests not only with the basics but the small things that make staying in the apartment so easy-- shampoo in the bathrooms, loads of toilet paper, coffee, sugar, the Israeli equivalent of Sweet and Low, a havdalah candle and besomim box, even a small bottle of grape juice. Tzvi and Gladys are extremely responsive-- we had problems with the TV set, and they had the box replaced within two days. As previous guests have stated, my only hesitation in writing this review is the fear that it will make booking the place more difficult in the future. Very strongly recommended.

German Colony Gem

  • 5 of 5

The hardest part about writing this review is our concern that it will make it more difficult for us to book a return visit!

We spent 3 months in this apartment while on sabbatical in Israel and couldn't have been happier. The apartment is conveniently located near Emek Refaim, the Rakevet, the Takana, and shopping, dining, learning, and davening opportunities galore. The owner is attentive to every need and close to immediately responsive when issues come up. The apartment is clean, comfortable, stocked and set-up in a very thoughtful and functional way. And the building is quiet and well-tended. We plan to come back and you will too!
