Our home

Our Cozy 1950's stone house has been fully renovated 4 years ago. We kept the old look on the exteriors and combined it with a modern set up internally. The kitchen is spacious and fully equipped for chefs, one bathroom with a shower and toilet, a second toilet, 3 bedrooms, and a cozy living room and dining area all with air conditioning and ceiling fans. At the entrance of the house, we have two inviting pergolas with a sitting area facing an enchanting fish pond and a wooden swinging bench for 3. The marvelous view over wheat fields, stone terraces, fig-trees, passion fruit, pomegranates, and olive trees all surrounded by the hills of Galilee. On the terrace outside we have a large gas-operated barbecue, and a sink unit set up with a table for 6. Our polite and friendly white cat spends most of the day outside and sleeps indoors only if allowed. The images here are of the lower floor apartment described. Yet the house is double in size as it has another sunny and bright apartment upstairs. Each apartment has its own separate entrances on two opposite sides of the building. The apartment upstairs is connected yet separated by an internal stairway with a lockable door. This apartment is offered as a vacation home for families via Airbnb. But if requested by a family that needs more rooms and space than what we have to offer in our lower level apartment, we can include the upper apartment as well for the exchange period. You can see the images for the upper apartment here:

If you would like to view some of my favorite places to visit in nature and historic sites in the northern part of Israel (in a driving range of 15 min-1.5 h away) please use this link to my photography website:

Both apartments are equal in size (100 sq m each), yet we have an art studio and a small office in the upper apartment which we offer only upon request.
