We arrived a bit early but were given a warm welcome by Chen and shown our room right away. The ground floor suite (#2) is spacious, airy and simply and attractively appointed. It included all we needed to cook for ourselves plus tea, coffe, milk, eggs, biscuits & nuts to nibble on after our journey. The terrace overlooks the desert... More

The room is very nice. With a small kitchen, overlooking an internal yard and overlooking to the desert. House holding is impeccable and the décor, ware and everything is well taken care of and with good taste. The lady of the house is nice and forthcoming. Breakfast is wonderful. We would love to come back and stay there.

The Desert Home is simply fabulous! We booked four rooms (the B&B only has five altogether) for four nights. Everybody - young and old alike - was thrilled. The self-catering rooms are very large, the bathrooms are spacious (we loved the bathrobes), and the terraces are great. Everything is spotlessly clean. The Desert Home is located in a quiet street,... More

We stayed for one night in May after hiking in Mitzpe Ramón park. The unit we had was a studio apartment with the bed at one end and living room and kitchen at the other. The bathroom was off the entryway. Everything was clean. The room and bathroom were spacious. The balcony space was large, chairs comfortable, and view calming.... More

We stayed for 3 nights at Desert Home in late March. Our first time and hopefully not our last. We found Desert Home to be a superb guest house. Our room on the ground floor was very nice for this desert retreat. Our room was large with most of the comforts of home and well stocked for self catered stays.... More

The owner Chen has got it all right. We had a ground floor studio with terrace overlooking the desert. We only stayed one night on our return to the airport from the south but in hindsight could have made this our base for exploring the Ramon Crater and stayed for several nights. The room was beautifully decorated and there were... More

This really is a terrific b&b, we gave up trying to think of something that the owner, Chen, had missed. She has covered all bases from the chocolate and biscuits in the fridge to the candles. The room has been designed with flair. As well as the double bed, it has another double pull out bed. DVD player comes complete... More

Everything was absolutely gorgeous. Chen welcomed us warmly and made us feel completely at home and more importantly away from the city's hustle and bustle. The finer details of the accommodation were a real luxury. Soft high quality linen and towels, a fully stocked kitchen, coffee, tea, eggs, milk, CD player (with Eric Clapton album - my favorite). It was... More

Everything was perfect: little treats, graciousness of the room, sympathy of the owner, wonderful breakfast, the little porch looking at the desert, comfortable bed and bathroom..... great night. Great place to get in touch with the Negev.

They thought of everything - from the candles next to the bath, to the little plate of chocolate in the fridge when you arrive, to the sketchpad of desert scenery - the Desert Home is meticulously prepared for the traveler who wants to be pampered but doesn't know it yet! The location is in a quiet residential area and it... More
