Bright comfortable cottage in Jaffa, steps from the sea and minutes on foot from bustling Tel Aviv

The space
This Ottoman era garden cottage is located in Jaffa, the southern part of Tel Aviv. A 10-minute walk takes you to the beach. It is two minutes to Jaffa port, the sea and Old Jaffa. Five minutes on foot will take you to the bustling Flea Market where you will find fantastic deals by day and an exciting array of bars and restaurants by night. The heart of Tel Aviv is a 7-minute stroll along the seaside boardwalk.

About 90 sq meters, the cottage has one bedroom, one huge livingroom, a small library, kitchen and bathroom. The whole front of the cottage is a covered porch where you can read and eat. Inside, you will find unusual original floor tiles, a soaring stone arch and lots of light.

The kitchen is fully-equipped and includes a Nespresso machine, microwave oven, dishwasher, large refrigerator, full oven, water purifier and a two burner counter top stove.

The garden in front of the cottage is always in full bloom.

There is a laundry room tucked into the garden with washer and dryer.

Children younger than 10 months or older than 3 years are most welcome. The cottage is not child safe for toddlers.
