The apartment was beautiful and extremely spacious . It had great AC. The huge living area was on the upper floor with two seating areas. There were four bedrooms down a flight of steps and 3 bathrooms. Two bathrooms were en suite. The beds were very comfortable, however three of the bedroooms had Queen size beds and the master had a queen and a pullout single bed. We were two couples and four teenagers. One of my grandchildren chose to sleep upstairs on a couch in order not to have to share a bed with his brother. The couch was quite comfortable but the apartment description said it slept twelve, leading us to believe there were more single beds.
The kitchen was amply stocked with dishes. Since we are strictly kosher, we chose to bring our own pots and utensils. The owner provided a Sabbath kettle and warming tray which we did use.
The owner provided towels, sheets and blankets, however we could have used a second set of towels and sheets. The combination washer dryer worked well, but we mostly dried clothes on the rack that was provided since the sun was very strong.
The super features of the apartment were the balconies, furnished with very comfortable outdoor furniture and the large table that seated 12. The elevator to the apartment was up 4 steps and was small. It was very useful for moving heavy suitcases and groceries or two adults. It is not a Sabbath elevator, so on Shabbat we walked up and down three flights of steps.
The location of the apartment is ideal. We were less than a five minute walk to the supermarket, restaurants and bakery on Emek Refaim. There are several synagogues nearby. Mamilla is a 12 minute walk. There are two great fruit stores up the road.
It would be very helpful if the owner provided some written instructions for checking in including WiFi and password, how to use hot water, washing machine and dryer as well as labels on drawers of utensils and plates indicating meat or milk.
