We stayed at Desert Home in April 2014. The accommodation was on the ground floor and very peaceful. Lovely room - more like an apartment. Very clean with lovely personal touches - in terms of decor, I'd say the proprietor had an 'eye for design'. Breakfast was brought to our room every day in individual pottery dishes with a whole...

We had a great stay here. All the important things are right. Yes, its a bit rustic and certain minor compromises are made but the accommodation has all you need to either self cater or just sleep there and enjoy the delicious fresh breakfast. The nibbles provided also were a nice touch usually missing in much more expensive places. We'd... More

My husband and I stayed at Desert Home for our wedding anniversary. The room is extremely comfortable and contains everything one would need for their stay. I loved all the extra touches that were provided with the room; the beautiful ceramic pots that contained the tea and coffee, the tasty cookies, fresh fruit and chocolate as well the organic cosmetics...

Our room was spacious, with nature decors (loved the wash basin made of wood), very clean, every comfort available (own little kitchen, free cookies/chocolate/nuts, bath robes, organic cosmetic, large balcony with desertview..); very kind host, breakfast is served in the room at the time you demand it, and is very delicious. We regret we couldn't stay some more days in... More

The owner woudn't accomodate us because we wanted to take our 4 month old baby with us. When I said that the baby is only in her stroller and doesn't even crawl, the lady-owner told me: "well, a baby is your problem and I can't help you with that". If they don't like babies, probably they have really thin walls...

Desert home is a beautiful place in a quiet street in the town Mitzpe Ramon. We had a beutifully decorated little studio on the ground floor with kitchen and a patio outside. The view was of a small garden and the desert and was so calming,especially in the morning. It was cold outside but we had breakfast there on the... More

This is a nice alternative to staying at a hotel. This is a small apartment, with one bedroom and a small pullout sofa in the living area to sleep three. The only draw back to this stay is neighborhood noise. The first night it was the dogs barking and howling all night, and the second night the cats fighting in... More

We were disappointed with our room, especially after reading such glowing previous reviews. First, we had a room on the 2nd floor which was reached by a very narrow turning staircase which was hard to carry our bags up. There really wasn't onsite parking, or at least not for all the rooms. The parking spot we tried, the car barely... More

We stayed at six hotels during our recent trip to Israel. Desert Home was our favorite place. The Innkeeper, Chen, was very hospitable. The room was comfortable and the patio is lovely as well. The breakfast was terrific. I highly recommend Desert Home if you are in or near the Mitzpe Ramon area. orrie f.
