Certificate from the Israeli Ministry of Tourism
- English, Hebrew
I am an educator and ceramic artist, PhD, interested in intercultural visual communication. I established the Haifa Center of Ceramics and Art just down the road from the Artist's House. I have lived with my husband (Amos) and sons in the Neveh Yoseph neighbourhood since 1980. We are all very involved in the local community which is now a successful model in Israel for multicultural living. The sea is great in the bay of Haifa, and we are enthusiastic swimmers, and of course, we have the best beaches in Israel.
Why Janet chose Haifa
Get a 'feel' of Israel by meeting and talking with us. All guests are invited to an introductory drink to help them get orientated to Haifa, the surrounding area, and the north of Israel. In recent years, the road system in Israel has been greatly upgraded, so from the Artist's House it is possible to make day trips easily both to the north and south
What makes this House unique
It is a great feeling when you spend some time in a creative environment. Together, all the ceramic, books and art objects make the Artist's House unique and staying there is a memorable experience.

Extremely pleasant and charming
We had a wonderful time in this charming little house. The room is big and has a soul. The terrasse is great with a great view on the bay. Very easy and interesting hosts with whom we had a great contact. Thank you !
Characterful place, very noice host and hostess, tough parking
Felt like home
My daughter and I stayed here for 8 days. We were comfortable and warmly welcomed. The apartment has a kitchen, living/sleeping room, and a large bathroom, with storage space in hall closets. The kitchen had everything we needed. The beds were comfortable. The Wi-fi worked great. We were so comfortable here! It really felt like home.
But what makes the Artist's House so special is Janet and Amos, the hosts. The apartment is attached to their home. They invited us in to enjoy wine and snacks the first evening, They are warm, interesting people. Staying here was like enjoying the guest room of family friends. They were useful sources of information about sights to see and how to get there, and they even gave us a ride to go shopping one morning. (In case you're wondering, they both speak perfect English too -- it is Janet's first language.)
The apartment itself is situated on a hillside on the north side of Haifa. Haifa is not all that big; it is easy to get around. We had a car, but there are buses that stop in the neighborhood. I loved coming home to a neighborhood rather than an informal hotel. I felt almost as if I lived there.
I would absolutely recommend this apartment. I feel like I have friends in Haifa after staying here. --Donna (and Liat) from Minnesota
Cosy apartment in friendly neighborhood
We had a wonderful time staying in this cute apartment in the out-skirts of Haifa. The view over the town and all the way to the sea is stunning, specially at night. The apartment is cosy and very comfortable. Janet and Amos gave us a warm welcome and left goodies in the fridge. Although Haifa is situated in the north of Israel, it is central enough to visit most interesting places and come back home in the evening. Thanks again to Janet and Amos, we hope to come back one day. greetings from Spain, Ursula and Herbert
Fascinating and comfortable
Not only are Janet and Amos wonderful hosts, providing everything from homemade biscuits to a lovely book collection, they are also erudite and charming. In a half-hour they had already given me a great deal to think about, as well as two contacts in Israel specifically helpful to me. The room could not be better, with a separate entrance, private bath and a kitchen. I highly recommend staying with them should you have the chance.
Alles was wir uns wünschten!
Sehr nette Gastgeber, die alles unternahmen unseren Aufenthalt angenehm zu gestalten. Als ich mir den Magen verdorben hatte, waren sie gleich da und haben mich mit allen nötigen versorgt. Auch Ihre Tipps und Angaben haben uns sehr geholfen. Trotzdem sehr diskrete Gastgeber.
