Tips about apartment rentals in Israel

When going online to search for an apartment rental in Israel you are bound to find a wide range of prices for what appears to be apartments of a similiar size. What you don't realize is that there is a difference between a family apartment that is made available for a short period of time,in which you are living with other people's "Stuff"-or a true holiday apartment-beautifully appointed, well cared for with empty closets to boot! Also, it is rare to find a rental quote that includes utilities-this is true in Europe as well. The cost of electricity in Israel is very high and Israelis are very conscious of their use of air conditioning and heating.
A separate charge for having an apartment cleaned and the linens washed upon checkout is also standard procedure of most apartment rentals in Israel and in Europe. This fee can be anywhere from $100-$200 depending upon the size of the apartment and the number of people staying there.

Please note that apartment rentals can be rented for a minimum period of one week.  Check in and check out are between 9 AM-5 PM Sunday-Friday.  Should you require a special arrangement -early in the morning or late at night-we will do our best to have someone there to greet you within reason. We understand that you may be travelling during the time in Israel.  Unlike a hotel, one cannot check in and check out of an apartment duirng the period of time that you may be staying elsewhere.  Please factor this into your travel budget.
