We have been living here for five weeks and we will be here for five weeks more. We love both Haifa and the apartment and are very glad we decided to spend a self-declared sabbatical here. The apartment is sunny and airy and very nicely decorated. The kitchen is well-equipped and the washing machine has been a great convenience. Our bed is extremely comfortable, a very important consideration for a ten week stay. Finally, we love the location - we can walk to Ben Gurion Avenue, the Bahai Gardens, and the Arab neighborhood of Wadi Nisnas which has a wonderful food stores and a great souk on Saturdays. There are many bus routes that stop within three blocks and the train station is a ten minute walk away for day trips to Tel Aviv, Akko, etc., Yossi, the owner, and his local helper Sawsan have been incredibly helpful and responsive. We hope to come back someday when it's beach weather!
