The SpaceWe are sitting on the top of the hill, so we have a great view to see the sunset over the Aminadav forest, which is just a few mins by foot away. The house is not modern, but rather a collection of vintage things from the odd tiles to the red formaica kitchen furniture. But everything is clean and in good shape. I recently built a wooden staircase to get more safely into the back garden that was a junk yard when we moved in - now it's child safe and green.. A big white net for shade is stretched from the house all the 20meters to the mulberry tree which is our big treasure during may/june when its overflowing with sweet black berrys. Guest AccessYou will have the whole house for yourselves, apart from the Single Room-Apartement thats integrated in the house. That means 130sqm at your service. The hall, bedroom 1, kitchen 1, bathroom + toilet 1, living room, conservatory, kitchen 2, bathroom + toilet 2, bedroom 2. Plus of course side and back garden. Approx. 500sqm with olive trees, lemon, fig, walnut & the big mulberry tree. Interaction with GuestsWe can stay in contact through (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) and/or email. For emergencies our neighbours will be happy to help. Their names are Shlomi and Ayelet, they have 3 kids and they are the best and nicest neighbours a person can wish for. They also speak English. The NeighborhoodWithin walking distance there is a small grocery store that offers everything needed for daily life, a very charming wine bar (open only mondays & thursdays though), 2 other cafe/bars open daily except for Shabat that also have a selection of freshly prepared meals (the Ora Bora i.e. makes great Humus!), a really tasty Falafel-Place called Falafal Ora. To the forest you walk less then 10 mins...
At the entrance to Ora/Aminadav there is a big supermarket and a gas station that's open 24/7.
Hadassa En Karem, one of Israels biggest hospitals is just 5 mins down the road.
If you want to know, where you can get the best humus - we can tell you..* Getting AroundAminadav sits on top of a hill right at the entrance of Jerusalem. Within 20 mins you are downtown, 30 mins to the old city. If you prefer to leave your car behind, there is a bus leaving from the nearest station (less than 100 meters from our home) to Mount Herzl and from there you can take the Light Train that runs every 5 mins all the way into the city. You can also park your car for free at Mt.Herzls underground parking and go into the city with the train. It's definetly worth saving the trouble of finding parking downtown. Other Things to NotePlease remember there is no public transport whatsoever in the whole Jerusalem area from friday afternoon around 5 p.m. until saturday around 8 p.m.
