8 of us (2 families, 4 adults, 4 children) have spent 11 days at the Fain's beautiful Sea and Wind Cabins. It is the perfect environment for families. Excellent facilities, nice environs, safe and near the nicest beaches you could wish for. Jeanette and Ofer are perfect hosts. They are available if you need anything (whether it be another tin of freshly ground coffee or home made brownies or advice about local restaurants or travel advice), nothing seems too much trouble and they have everything you need.
The two houses are really well appointed with the necessary mod cons (air con, wifi, well fitted kitchen), comfy beds and lounging areas and beautiful exteriors with social verandas and space to run around in the gardens. We particularly loved the outdoor shower which was perfect for a quick cool down before bedtime! The gardens are pretty and feel very natural in keeping with the rest of the surrounds. It is perfect for kids and very safe. Birds singing, flowers blooming and the distant sound of the sea... Heavenly!
Mikhmoret is a great area. The beaches are fab and not busy. There are plenty of amenities 5-10 mins up the road by car (restaurants, supermarkets, vineyards, etc). You are 5 mins from the main highway from Haifa to Tel Aviv. It is a really busy motorway, so always add plenty of time to any journey south. But in theory Tel Aviv is 30 mins, Caesaria is 10 mins and Jerusalem about 90 mins by car.
In summary, just about perfect! We couldn't have been happier. Thanks J & O
