About Ronit Barak

My husband Pini and I love to travel all over the world,and most of the times we prefer to stay at nice B&B, so- once all of our 3 daughters left the house, got married, moved away, (thankfully not too far away... ) we decided to convert part of the empty guesthouse into a guessed it- a B&B. We both love to meet people, cook and host. Seems perfect to me! Hope you'll enjoy your suite as much as I love setting it up!

Ronit Barak purchased this house in 1994

Pleasant stay at Life is good BnB

  • 5 of 5

We arrived with nice welcome and was showed to our pool cottage. Everything was very clean and the breakfasts of following days where exactly as on picture.

Everything was as described at profile and safe neighborhood. Only minus was the weather, with lots of rain but that you cannot predict.

Thank you once more and see you in future adventures! Say hi to Pixi!

Peaceful, warm home-away-from-home

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was just lovely. We were greeted with a warm welcome upon arrival. As others have said, the bed is amazing. I slept so soundly (and I am fairly picky about beds!)--there was a rainstorm that was apparently going on during the night and I never once woke up. No detail was forgotten here: the snacks and complimentary beverages were so thoughtfully provided and the breakfast each morning was better than any we could have had at a restaurant. I found the location of Life Is Good to be perfect for where we were going: it is central, easy to find, and ample, safe street parking. Should we ever find ourselves in need of a place to stay here again, this will be the first place I look up to find an availability! Thank you Ronit and Pini!
