First off: Catherine is the perfect host and the apartment is fantastic.
Why do I say that? Because from the first moment of contacting her to the day we left she was professional and super helpful. The advice and recommendations helped us tremendously and she'd always get back to you quickly.
As for the apartment, the location is just right to make you feel like a local. Easy walking to shops etc and there's the bike hire around the corner (although we had a terrible experience with Tel-o-fun so I wouldn't advise using them).
The terrace is south facing so you get the sun all day and there's so much space you have plenty of room to lounge around.
Inside, again everything was perfect. Good pressure on showers, bedrooms plenty big enough and air conditioning not too noisy. We used the cooker, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble drier and all worked fine.
As you can tell we enjoyed our stay and I'm sure you would to.
This is a beautiful spacious apartment in a nice secure building with elevator. Amazing large rooftop overlooking neighborhood . Walk to jaffa port for delicious fish restaurants and art galleries. Around the corner from one of best hummus places in Tel Aviv (Abu Hassan)! Walk to the famous jaffa flea market and some delicious upscale restaurants like Onza. Will definitely stay here again!
We, a middle-aged couple from Binningen, Switzerland, stayed in location for a wonderful week. Catherine was very nice and helpful in all concerns. Thank you once more, Catherine!
The apartment has this nice terrace with a beautiful view, a perfect place for breakfast and dinner as well as drinks in the evening.
The surroundings: Everything is either nearby in walking distance or very easily reachable by bus.
Tel Aviv is a very lively city and there are loads of things to discover. The museums, the markets, the bars and restaurants and a lot more.
We very likely will come back one day or, alternatively, will book Catherine's place in Jerusalem.

My stay here was great, the apartment had 2 bathrooms, 2 bedrooms, a large open plan living room/kitchen area and a large balcony/terrace which is great for relaxing or entertaining friends.
The air conditioning was strong and kept the apartment at a pleasant, cool temperature.
Everything was as described and kept clean. Communication with the owner was nice and fast.
I would definitely stay here again.

Just back from a great four days in Jaffa to celebrate a friends wedding with my partner. Initially we were looking for a place to stay in Tel Aviv but after trawling through a bunch of places we decided to switch our choice to Jaffa. Came across the headline'rooftop'in Jaffa' and thus seemed to fit one of our main criteria's of a bit of outside space for both day and evening. The pictures of the apartment looked great so we contacted the owner Cathetine. Was contacted back almost immediately and told that apartment was available so booked it for four days. Thus followed a bunch off emails from me to Catherine about the loction of apartment, restaurants in vinicinity, walking times to beach etc etc. we must have driven Catherine mad with our questions but she emailed us answers to our questions straight away and gave some great advice. We arrived at the apartment around 3pm after an easy trip by train to Tel Aviv central from the airport and then a cab. Although Catherine wasn't ther she made entrance to the apartment really easy and we opened the door to a spacious two bedroomed, two bathroomed place, just how it was portrayed on the website. Almost on que we opened the doors to the massive balcony and the call to prayer emanated from the mosque in the distance, we looked right and saw a church spire so a real mixed area which was exactly what we were looking for.
The apartment had everything that we needed, towels, cutlery, etc, was really clean and tidy and well looked after. Apartment on top floor so no noise from above and a terrific view of area. The beach, clock tower and flea market was in easy walking distance (reckon about 10 mins for all) and bunch of restaurants, supermarkets, great cake shop 2mins away. Easy to jump in a taxi as they are frequent on main road again about four mins away. Area was a real mix of real people of Jaffa.
So, have to say we were sad to have to leave our little bit of paradise in Jaffa but will definatly return to this little gem
Great apartment, great rooftop, great view, great loc, great owner.....give your mind a rest and your senses a spark......just go there
