Vacationing in Israel is a great way to enjoy some rest and relaxation. Perhaps, you already have your sights on a nice hotel in Tel Aviv, but there are many other choices for you to consider. Like all major cities, you have many a wonderful hotel, in all shapes, sizes and budgets, but many holiday-goers have turned to renting out apartments in order to give themselves freedom, manage their budget and explore the city from a different angle.

Vacation By The Beach

The beachfront apartments in Tel Aviv are everyone’s go-to destination. A few minutes on the internet will provide comprehensive lists of companies and individuals providing luxurious accommodations with all the latest amenities to make your stay in Tel Aviv a special one. So if you’re not out enjoying the renowned Tel Aviv night life, you can stock your fridge and use the oven or microwave to make yourself an evening meal made with fresh local ingredients from the Carmel Market. The cable TV and free Wi-Fi will also allow you to research and be entertained during your vacation.

Many people love to stay by the beach because of its perfect positioning — close to the area of the city with some of the best clubs, bars and restaurants and along the stunning coastline promenade. You can easily reach other parts of the city from anywhere along the beach. While you consider a coastline view, the old port of Jaffa has some of the most incredible outlooks on the whole city. Jaffa’s old market, ancient ruins and lively character make for a unique rental experience.

The heart of Tel Aviv city

If you’re not committed to a beach view, there are other very stylish and luxurious parts of the city, like Dizengoff Street and Ibn Gabirol Street in the center of the city. You can really feel the livelihood of the city from the center, and you can see far more of the culture and historical areas this way.
