We enjoyed and had a wonderful time of r&r at Yan's Beautiful Sea of Galilee Lakeside. We can highly recommend it if you are looking for a place to enjoy life in Israel. My wife and I had the privilege of seeing and being in Tiberias for the celebration of Purim and getting a glimpse of the boardwalk in celebration mode. We did not rent a vehicle and came to Israel for a time of rest so we needed a place nearby the older part of the city. Yan's place is walking distance and was very convenient for getting to some good places to eat out in the evenings and the coffee shop was not a distant walk as well.
Yan's place was very nice and the balcony overlooking the Sea of Galilee was what the doctor ordered. Idan was our host and he was quick to accommodate our need for the balcony and fresh air off Galilee. We were able to take buses and travel to a couple of the sites nearby.You can see many of the Biblical sites, hike the Arbel mountain pass that Jesus traveled and manage a really good time through the public transportation. Buses stopped right outside our door so you are assured a good time in a beautiful place if you make your way here.
When we arrived at the property, we were offered another apartment, which was so bad that we said we couldn't stay in it. The property shown here was the best of the four apartments we were ultimately shown. But, it was still terrible. The apartment -- furniture, appliances, drapes, bathroom, and balcony -- were dirty beyond description. The balcony was unusable. The corridor stunk of cigarette smoke and had an apparently discarded mattress left near the elevators.
Don't be fooled by the pictures. Don't stay in this apartment.
My wife loved the rental said it was very clean. We enjoyed the small balcony overlooking the kinneret. The rental was very comfortable for our needs, 2 people, but extra places to sleep others. The host responded to our requests very fast. Rental is close to town & pagoda restaurant & we ate there often. Just be sure to check the apartment, since we had to move to another apartment with the balcony since first apartment did not have. This does not have direct access to beach, & if kosher you need to use plastic utensils. We were very happy & will book again.
