5 Killer Airbnb Spots — Only Drawback Is They're in West Bank Settlements
Want to stay in a possibly dangerous and unauthorized Israeli settlement? Even if you don’t, you might accidentally.
It turns out that those looking for a quiet neighborhood right outside either Tel Aviv or Jerusalem can come across a wide selection of listings in settlements.
Not only are these homes a little more affordable, but some of them fall right in line with those looking for something off the beaten track.
This house in Ma’ale Adumin comes with Wi-Fi, cable TV, and a panoramic view of the desert and the mountains.
“Our house is located in nice and quiet neighborhood near Jerusalem. it has private entrance and lots of privacy,” writes host Mashiach.
A two-floor, two-bedroom apartment in the Israeli Settlement of Giv’at Zeev “surrounded by green” runs for $110 per night.
The pictures show a garden oasis unfortunately located in disputed land.
“Cozy” is usually a fancy word for cramped, but this two-bedroom, also in Giv’at Zeev, looks spacious, clean, and well decorated. The host does state that the house is in a settlement in the description, but that doesn’t stop it from being a popular locale.
Isaac from Woodmere, New York wrote in his review, “I could not have asked for a better, stress-free stay. I would definitely book another trip with this host!”
Giv’at Zeet is rife with Israeli’s looking to rent out their homes. For $56 you can get a rooftop area with a view of the city that’s perfect for barbequing.
