I would say -location is everything. The apartment location is ideal. Beach, park, shopping, restaurants are all near, many within walking distance.
Driving to different cities was easy. Old City Telvaviv-Yafo to the north is great for shopping or just to see the sites. We rented a car (a small one) to get around. The driving on Yefet is wild with bikes and motorcycles racing around you. Oh yeah and lots of honking. Overall the people are very helpful and friendly.
We had a few a great time.
Surprisingly up to date!
Surprise. The outside of this apartment looks rough and the staircases need an update, but as soon as you close the door behind you, you Will be surprises. This vacation apartment is tastefully designed, clean, well equipped, high ceilings, white walls, good beds. We profoundly enjoyed it. Close to restaurants (Cassis is the best) a minute walk to sandy beach, bike rental, 500 yards from stores. 20 minutes bike ride to Old Jaffa. By car it takes as long. The hacarmen sook is a blast. Parking before the door. The very only thing I did not like is that a few of the beautiful ceramic floor tiles were loose. And oh yes: No elevator. But nice view sideways of the sea on the narrow balcony. Worth your money.
Charming with an edge.
Noa was a thoughtul host. The place was charming, authentic, alicante well appointed, cool in the heat. The view and setting are a little misrepresented in the photos. But a mostly pleasant stay.
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!
