This is an apartment conversion with professional finishes and new IKEA furnishings. It is very convenient to the main highway and parking is great right in front of the unit. The neighborhood has public transportation but is best if you can drive. There is a big market not too far and a short drive to the beach. I had a family event in Ashkelon and this worked well for temporary housing. Fannie was great in terms of providing breakfast and helpful advice about the area. Great little apartment. Will definitely use it again as a low cost home base. Unit faces north- also a bonus.
