My hip newly refurbished flat near the sea in a recently upgraded building is just a 2 min walk to the Beach (Banana Beach) 5-10 min to Neve Tsedek, Rothschild Blvd, Sheinkin & Yaffo, the Central bus station & the "Shook" (The amazing Carmel Market)!
Newly refurbished sea-view apartment that captures the essence of Tel Aviv and Israel, where old meets new, ancient meets modern, the Orient meets the Occident.
The living room and three bedrooms are fully furnished and equipped with sheets, blankets, pillows and good mattresses.

The sun terrace with a parasol umbrella and hammock in summer, a small table with 2 chairs, a deckchair and two refurbished vintage french bar stools.
Each room exudes its own flavor from different periods, genres and functionality.
I hire special cleaning crews and individuals I know that I can count on to keep the place spotless prior to your arrival, and special laundry services to make sure the linens and towels are all ready to go.
Though I wrote 5 guests, two sofas open up for up to four more people.
The number 14 top-floor, elevator-access apartment has:
• private parking
• parking gate remote control
• Security Entrance with security code and video intercom to the apartment.
The fifth floor lends an airy warmth to the apartment with direct views of the sea, Jaffo and the Tel Aviv skyline, as well as the windows which face East, South and West and a beautiful 3-meter wide window facing Jaffo (Yafo) just visible beyond the minaret between the buildings and next to the door window access to the sun terrace of over 14 m2.
• Hi-speed wifi up to 200 MB is available if you connect directly, about 50 MB/s wifi.
• Public transportation - it's everywhere here and Dan Central Bus Station is two blocks away.
• Local Carmel market for shopping and eating and cooking in the house, • Dining out at the myriad eateries and restaurants available everywhere.
Our hood is hip! Situated a block from:
• Banana Beach
• the "Tayelet" (Tel Aviv beach promenade)
• the famous "shook" Carmel Market
• the Yemenite Quarter with its amazingly satisfying soups and other foods,
• the ritzy hotels,
• and walking distance to ancient Yafo, Neveh Tzedek, and the Rothschild Blvd club/bar/pub/restaurant/Bauhaus scene.
The apartment is very well located with shops close by. As I mentioned above, you can walk on foot to the center of Tel-Aviv or rent bicycles easily.
• 2 minutes from the beaches (100m), Sheinkin, & Shuk HaCarmel
• 5 minutes from Rothschild, Neve Tzedek, and Bograshov.

From the apartment you can walk or cycle through all the nice places in Tel Aviv. The city now offers rental bikes easy to use.
Interaction with guests
You're my guest and neighbor. I live across the way but respect your privacy.
I have a busy schedule, but am at least available online during your stay and will do my best to meet you and really make you feel welcome and at home. If for some reason I can't, i'll stay in communication with you often and regularly prior and throughout your stay.
If you need any ideas for Tel Aviv culture and its ins and outs, I'll try to help out where I can and, if you're interested and I'm available, could even join you out in town.
I'm actually a food importer, an amateur jazz pianist and enjoy other hobbies. I have friends here of all ages and generations and i'm just as likely to go to bed early for a quiet night with a book, or go out in town to meet friends or at each others' houses.
Other things to note
Upon arriving I will give you a short tour of the house so you know how things work. In case I can't make it on your arrival, the keys are located in a safe on the door post and I will send you the code to open it beforehand. I will leave a list of amenities and lists of TV channels, as well as the Wifi UN and PW. If there's anything i didn't think of, please let me know.
In addition, if you have guests coming to visit, public parking is a one minute walk from the apartment. It is very easy to access.
Please try to treat my home like your own. I'm always available for any questions. Wifi is called East-West. There's a great selection of TV and movies on the 45 inch full HD television. Smoke on deck only.
I recommend removing shoes at the entrance and using house slippers or just socks, as this keeps the house much cleaner.
The apartment is in a residential building, thus do NOT make excessive noise with music especially after midnight.
Only toilet paper can be thrown in the toilet. Do NOT throw Tampax, condoms, cigarette butts, cotton and other items.
Think of the environment, be sure all the windows and doors are close before leaving the lights on without any need.
Please do NOT leave lights or television on when not in the apartment.
In case of losing a set of keys, please cut them again, if not a administration fee of $25 will be charged over the cost for its replacement.
When using make up, nail polish and other cosmetics please take care to NOT stain the furniture or textiles.
Cancel up to 7 days before your trip and get a 50% refund. Cancel within 7 days of your trip and the reservation is non-refundable.
i'm an american, work in Tel Aviv and love jazz (playing, too), culture, languages, food (meat!) and museums and archaeology. I speak a lot of languages, some better than others. I like to learn about other cultures and people and share life experiences. As a new host, i hope to apply a warm feeling to my guests as i was shown by hosts in different airbnb sojourns of my own.
