Tel Aviv, Tel Aviv District
My beautiful apt. in central Tel Aviv is light-filled and breezy, with a large terrace facing a mulberry tree over a backyard (birdsong in the morning!). Designed by my architect parents, it includes an open-space living-room and kitchen, bedroom with queen-size bed, guest-room with fold-out bed, bathtub-shower -- and my sweet cat (see below).
Ideally located on a side street in the historic center, 2 mins. to Rothschild and trendy Shenkin streets, 5 minutes to Carmel Market, 10 mins. stroll to the beach or to Dizengof Center. Plenty of boutiques, cafes, food & convenience stores nearby. A perfect location for exploring Tel Aviv after taking tea on the terrace (pick your herbs from my herbs-garden)!

It has AC (plus fan in the bedroom), WIFI, bath-shower,fully equipped kitchen and washing machine. Furnished in my eclectic Tel Aviv s...

Staying at this apartment is the exact opposite of the Isrotel experience. If you are looking for a flashy place, look elsewhere. If, however, you are looking for a place that will truly make you feel at home in Tel Aviv, you could not do better. The apartment is cozy and well equipped, with not only the standard appliances but...

Thanks Josh! I will pass on your compliments also to Chupchik...

Michael's apartment is cute and really nice. The location is just perfect. South Centre is the best part of Tel Aviv. The street is very quiet and near to the beach and neighborhoods witch that are animated. Yemenite quarter for lunch or simply for walking; Carmel market (souk with lots of good products to cook or eat cheap place); shenkin...

About the neighbourhood
Located on a small side street in the heart of the Shenkin-Rothschild neighborhood ('Lev Tel Aviv'), the apt. is on the 2nd floor of a 4-floor house and faces the back yard with several large trees -- a rural paradise in central Tel Aviv. The mulberry tree creates a green curtain of leaves that shades the terrace and gives you full privacy -- a rare treat in the city center!
You are few minutes walk from all the Shenkin and Rothschild cafes, restaurants and boutiques, plus 24-hour supermarket, organic minimarket, etc. I leave you my comprehensive 'Tips for Guests' with directions to my favorite cafes, not-expensive eating places, where to buy food,sightseeing, etc. It's a 10- minute stroll (via Carmel Market & the Yemenite Quarter) to one of Tel Aviv's nicest...
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: Ben Gurion: 0.0 km
Railway: Tel Aviv HaShalom: 0.0 km
From the airport you can either take a taxi directly here (about 180 NIS, 30 minutes ride) or take any train to Tel Aviv (12 minutes ride) and then a taxi from Hashalom station (15 minutes ride). Train + taxi will cost about 50 NIS.
Please note that trains do NOT run all night, so check the train schedule: www.rail.co.il/EN. Night trains to Tel Aviv stop only at Tel Aviv Savidor station, from there it's 15 minutes taxi ride at night to my place.

My house (Haavoda 40) is third building from the corner of Melchett st - there's a small blue gate at the entry. Go upstairs two floors until apt. 6 (silver door) - you're here!
