Very friendly family own place. Excellent breakfast and gourmet dinner. Fabulous location with amazing views of the Galilee mountains. Close to sites: Safed, Hula Valley and Golan Heights.
Real warm family hospitality, beautiful environment they have created, and awesome dining area with great food. I rented a bed in the dorm, was alone in the room(off season) and the place was fully self contained(tv, living room area, kitchen, good showers).
This place was great. They treat you like family. Really friendly and nice family. Provided guidance and a map for places to visit. Had a wonderful garden with many frruit trees to choose from. The food was excellent. I had the best breakfast that I have ever had.
Didn´t stay long enough
Calm, splendid place, nice people, excelent home made food
very friendly family staff. if you want to be away from it all but still close enough to the sea of galilee and all it has to offer, this is the place. you must have a car to get there (gps coordinates are on their website. it's impossible to find without them). the breakfast, while not included in the price, is fantastic and completely worth it.
Israel Shavit, the chef produced both fantastic and delicious dinner and complete breakfast with surprises that delighted at both meals. The accommodations were wonderful, but the food and Tree of Hope for Peace were memorable. Yes we would return.
Great hospitality Excellent dinner and breakfast Great location (just next to the Arbel nature reserve).
We enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere in the restaurant with the tasty food. It was surprising to be able to pick fruit fresh free from the trees. Also surprising was the delicious chocolate self-made by Israel (senior owner and chef). A lovely pool (a little to cold in this season) but surely refreshing in the hot summer. Highly recommendable for anyone who likes atmosphere and food and friendly advise from the owners about the surroundings. We loved every minute....
Bed covers were a little too warm. A lighter alternate cover would be helpful.
The Shavit family have established a perfect place to spend a holiday. Their warm welcome, beautiful rooms with jacuzzis amidst the setting of fruit trees can't be beat. Each meal was fit for any gourmand. We were only sorry we couldn't stay longer.
The only minor problem is that a car is essential. It is about a 10-15 minute drive from Tiberias
It all was lovely
It is remote place..
good view and nice people. the cats are super cute and the dogs are close to everyone.if i go back to galilee, i will still stay here.
The cuisine and chocolate tasting were some of the main attractions but the chef was not available during our stay and the chocolates were finished. Wifi signal was poor. Would rather stay in Tiberias next time
The location was wonderful, very close to the Sea of Galilee and close to Tiberius, which looked awfully seedy and touristy to us. It was so nice to stay somewhere that felt more like a home. We had such personal service from Gefen (?), the proprietor's son. We really enjoyed our talks about politics in Israel, and his family's history in the country. Gefen gave us his cell number and insisted we call him if we had any trouble during the rest of our two weeks in Israel.The breakfasts were feasts! We didn't need to eat again until dinner. And the view from our private balcony was so beautiful and peaceful.
There were loads of tiny ants in the bathroom, and some in the kitchen, but I suppose they just added to the country charm of the place. We were looking forward to the dinners and wines that we had read so much about, but Gefen(?) told us that his father was out of town and that he wasn't much of a cook so that we would have to get our dinner elsewhere while we were there. That actually worked out alright, though we had been looking forward to the home cooked meals that his father is famous for and that they had advertised.
Very welcoming staff, friendly atmosphere, wonderful pool, delicious breakfast and food in the evening.
Rooms differ. Ours was a little tired compared to the one our friends had but still lovely.
1) Fruit garden - the whole place drowns in beautiful fruit garden 2) Amazing service - Shavit family gives outstanding warm service 3) Rooms have everything that they are supposed to have (fridge, freezer, dishes, hot tube, wi fi, tv, etc....). Everything is clean and cared. 4) Restaurant. Great meat based dinner, perfect village style breakfast. 5) Pool - clean, cosy pool with beautiful view. 6) Location - Beautiful Arbel cliff is 4-5 minutes drive. Kineret beaches about 10 minutes drive. Thanks to Shavit family for great stay!
The staff could not have been nicer. The food was terrific, and their chocolate and wine cellar is a must! I would definitely recommend this place and would love to come back! !!
The facility was homey, comfortable, and set in a beautiful garden like setting. The staff was warm, friendly, and very accommodating. The food was excellent. I would definitely go back and stay there again.
The wifi never worked. I could connect to the network but could not connect to the internet and no one there knew how to fix it.
from the moment you enter the guest house, you are welcomed as if you were some long lost cousin... They immediately served us some refreshing ice tea and cookies. Then the food was EXCELLENT, and the small extras were delicious. The breakfast was amazing, one of the best we had ever had. And best of all they helped me solve some complicated problems with my car rental, made phone calls for me, called the garage and baked me a batch of fresh brownies early in the morning so I could get to repair my car. We came as strangers and left as friends. We were only sorry we were not able to stay another night...
everything was wonderful.
The best place we stayed in all of Israel. The Shavit family are a delight - so friendly, warm, and helpful. The grounds are a relaxing, beautiful, peaceful garden of Eden with fruit trees and grape vines. The food (prepared from all fresh ingredients by the family) was the best we had in Israel. My children loved the pool. We all loved the friendly dogs and cats who wander freely on the grounds. Even if you don't plan to go to Northern Israel, it is worth going up there JUST to stay at this fantastic guest house.
I wish we had stayed even longer!
The Shavit family was very welcoming and made us feel comfortable from the first minute. The fruit garden was a paradise and the pool was very relaxing. The fact that it's just a few minutes' drive to the top of Mount Arbel makes it even better.
We had nothing to complain about.
the staff very friendly. The scrumptious breakfast.
The food was awesome! If you stay there, don't miss out on the dinner and breakfast. You can not do better anywhere close.
Liked everything. Lovely family owners who were very nice and helpful. The entire place was cozy and cute and just wonderful. The food was mouthwatering delicious. Can't say enough good things. I wish we had time to stay longer and I would encourage everyone to stay here when in the area!
Staff helpful, clean, air conditioned, breakfast excellent, pool wonderful. Had dogs and cats, so adorable. Drove me to the bus stop. I really loved this family and my dorm room.
Nothing...they were AWESOME
The whole set-up--accomodation, location, food service,friendliness.
