airbnb israel

For some, the word “Israel” seems to evoke fear - the war-torn nation has had its fair share of rough times and misconceptions that seemed to have multiplied over the years. However, the beauty of Israel should not be forgotten underneath the rubble of it’s past; towering silhouettes of century-old churches and holy mosques that resonate in prayer against the setting sun are the first thoughts that come to mind for others.

Stay in the midst of natural beauty all around you with 10 of these Airbnb vacation rentals here in Israel.

Cozy apartment on Mt. Carmel, Haifa (from 54 USD)

Immerse yourself in the quiet neighborhood of Denia, Haifa. Greeted by the sights of green plains that stretch for miles, take this time to truly reconnect with your loved ones away from the bustling city. The homely living room is adorned with vibrant decorations; the knitted tablecloth and painted canvas art hanging on the walls inject a pop of color into the otherwise simple interior. Choose from two bedrooms, one with a single bed that acts as a day sofa, and one with a double bed with tons of cushions for you to jump onto. No matter which room you choose, the comfortable views of lush greenery will always surround you. Keep a look out for the cheeky house cat that pops by from time to time! If you’re hungry, the kitchen is equipped with basic facillities for you to whip up a quick meal.
