About Yossi

Originally from Haifa, I currently share my time between Israel and abroad.

Yossi purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Yossi chose Haifa area

We always wished to own a property in Haifa's German Colony where I could stay with my family during the time that we are in Israel and provide a home for guests coming to Haifa for a visit.

What makes this apartment unique

The flat is newly renovated and therefore very comfortable, providing all required amenities. It is centrally located at the heart of the charming German Colony touristic area with many restaurants, shops and cafes in close vicinity. Main public transportation routes including the train, busses and 'Matronit' are all within very close walking distance. At the same time being at a side street, just off Ben-Guryon Avenue, the flat is quiet and tranquil . These features make the flat an ideal choice for visitors coming from abroad.

An incredibly comfortable and very well located apartment

  • 5 of 5

We have been living here for five weeks and we will be here for five weeks more. We love both Haifa and the apartment and are very glad we decided to spend a self-declared sabbatical here. The apartment is sunny and airy and very nicely decorated. The kitchen is well-equipped and the washing machine has been a great convenience. Our bed is extremely comfortable, a very important consideration for a ten week stay. Finally, we love the location - we can walk to Ben Gurion Avenue, the Bahai Gardens, and the Arab neighborhood of Wadi Nisnas which has a wonderful food stores and a great souk on Saturdays. There are many bus routes that stop within three blocks and the train station is a ten minute walk away for day trips to Tel Aviv, Akko, etc., Yossi, the owner, and his local helper Sawsan have been incredibly helpful and responsive. We hope to come back someday when it's beach weather!

Quite an Oasis in Haifa

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is well equipped, clean with new furniture, a very functional and modern kitchen and household equipment in excelent conditions. It Has a dishwasher, washing machine, air conditioners, mattresses in very good condition and a very good bathroom and a small half bath.

The building is old building, but is being remodeled, so contrasts with the ingerior modern decor.

The location is very good, as is a few blocks from the best restaurants in Haifa and tourist attractions. You will find a shopping center just a block away as well as bus stops.

I highly recommend this apartment

Lovely flat in central location

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our stay was a joy. Yossi was incredibly helpful before we set off - everything I asked him he bent over backwards to answer as fully and completely as possible. And Ulfat, the manager, is a treasure. She was helpful to us in so many ways, including giving us a personal tour of the fascinating arts center where she works. We had a couple of issues - a leaking ceiling and a poor internet connection - but Yossi and Ulfat went out of their way to solve them as quickly and easily for us as possible.

The flat is a delight, beautifully restored and furnished in the German Templer colony, one of the architectural treasures of old Haifa. It's on a side street so fairly quiet. Just be warned that the public areas of the 3-story house have no doors or windows - a little disconcerting at first. Apparently they're waiting to find a set of authentic doors and windows. The landings are also poorly lit at night, so use a flashlight. But we felt very safe, and we slept fantastically - the beds are really comfortable. This is Yossi's home for when he's in Haifa, so he's made sure everything there is top quality.

Owner's Response: Dear Simon, Thank you very much for your review - it was a pleasure hosting you both in Haifa and I'm happy that you found your stay to be a joy ! I appreciate your patience with the leak and internet issues and am glad that these were resolved to your satisfaction. Updating with regards to the public area: we have now located authentic Templers' windows (that fit the existing openings), these are being restored and installed. Also lights are being fixed at the landings, making this public space welcoming. Both Ulfat and myself very much hope that you come back to Haifa soon ! Best wishes, Yossi
