We had to leave and return home.
They’re 3 parts that make up a great holiday, location, weather and accommodation. Well, Kinneret is the perfect location for a base to explore northern Israel. The weather as you would expect is beautifully warm. That leaves only the accommodation.
We stayed at the “Kinneret Zimmers” for 14 days. We picked this accommodation because we wanted somewhere that was lavished with beautiful scenery and free of children. We were not disappointed.
It is true the signs are in Hebrew from the main road but if you like me familiarise yourself using the street scene from Google Earth, finding the Kinneret Zimmers is not that difficult.
On arrival Ilana and her son Niv greeted us. They showed us the room, which we thought was magnificent. It was spotlessly clean and included every conceivable device you would want ensuring complete luxury. The view through the window and the balcony outside was breathtaking. Ilana also took the time to ensure there was milk in the fridge, wine, fruit, flowers and pastries when we arrived.
The swimming pool although small was inviting and invigorating. It’s surrounded by a Lime tree and Date palm. Ample sun loungers and chairs are available
I have never in my life ever come across a host that eats, sleeps and breathes hospitality. Ilana, and her family could not do enough for us. If we wanted some extra towels or needed something it was done with the speed of an express train. Nothing but nothing was too much trouble for them. When we asked about restaurants or a place to see, at the speed of sound they offered to take us there. They gave us complimentary breakfast, snacks, drinks every few days. On our last night they even invited us into their home for a Sabbath dinner.
Its this kind of hospitality that leaves you feeling numb. If I could give 25 out of 10 I would, if I could give 10 stars I would.
