Our local friends booked this "zimmer" (luxurious b&b) for our vacation is Israel. Being Israelis who live abroad, we are quite savvy of value for money and about what to expect in terms of service, etc. Boy, were we impressed! The highly unique suites are well kept, fully equipped (including yogurt and OJ in your fridge and a fruit basket). The bed was probably the comfiest I ever slept on, our private hot tub was grand and the provided candles facilitated a serene, romantic eve. Your host is the perfect combination of European/North American "service above all" mindset and open hearted, Mediterranean hospitality and warmth.

The rich breakfast, complete with a cheese selection, fruit, eggs, yogurt, granola and home baked bread was amazing.

Some of us arrived sick and our host did everything possible to ensure our comfort, including cooking plain rice for us and making us home made tea remedies from the herb garden. No view from the suites other than the lush, beautiful garden, hence one less star for location. However, it is a very close to many beautiful vistas- just ask your host. (and this is generally not something to worry about in Israel, a pretty small place). This place
spells serenity. Enjoy your Galilee experience!

I can not express adequately how great this place is. Kobi and Aviv went above and beyond to make our stay so restful. When we arrived at 10pm with exhausted, hungry children, they had milk, cookies, yogurt and juice waiting for us (Which they didn't nickle and dime us for!). They were warm and friendly, and the room was beautiul and clean. They even arranged a babysitter for us (Kobi's daughter, who was as wonderful as her father!). The grounds were tranquil, and beautifully maintained. My kids loved picking oranges from the tree, and eating them for breakfast. The breakfast is exceptional, and we can not wait to go back!

My husband and I just wanted a quick getaway for Valentine's Day and found this one online. Honestly, with so many B&B's in northern Israel, we were hard pressed to make a decision, but the pictures on their website looked lovely so we decided on Pina Balev. We booked the royal suite since it was priced so well. The pictures were spot on. Our room was wonderful. When we arrived, we had wine, dessert, strawberries, and chocolates waiting for us. A large beautiful tub (note: it takes a long time to fill, so plan accordingly) and a perfectly comfortable bed.

We ate dinner at a wonderful restaurant recommended by the hotel (who made us reservations). There is also a small market just around the corner where we bought an additional bottle of wine and few personal items.

The owners were very sweet and very helpful. Perfect english too.

Overall, I can't recommend this B&B enough...and I can't wait to head back with our kids (they have a loft above the main bed area where our children might stay next time).

We spent 2 weeks in Israel, including 4 full days in the Galilee. Fortunately, our guide recommended Pina Balev for our stay in the Galilee. It is perfectly located to do touring throughout the area, even as far as the Golan. By staying here you have a convenient and very comfortable place to land every evening. We were a party of four adults, plus our guide, so we took most of the rooms. Each room has very comfortable beds, a kitchenette with usable espresso/cappuchino machine, refrigerator, etc. supplied with coffee, milk, juice, and cookies. The attention from Cobi, the owner is all you can ask for. The property includes a very large garden with hot tub and multiple sitting areas. We ate our luxurious breakfasts outdoors with benefit of large heaters. (Cobi will serve you when you want where you want!)
Each room has at least one big flat screen TV with English channels. Great showers.
And Rosh Pina has a number of very good kosher restaurants and a historic area that includes a chocolate factory. Do not miss it.
We have stayed many other places in Israel....you will not find something else like this. We definitely will come back.

We discovered this gem of a place while travelling in the Galilee region, and can’t recommend it highly enough! Lovely rooms, beautiful surroundings, delightful service and generous and accommodating hosts - nothing was too much trouble for them, and they took care of every little detail to make our stay truly memorable. A really terrific find
