WELCOME TO VILLA RIMONA ZIMMERS
I’m Chana and my husband Rabbi Shmuel Veffer and I would be honored to host you at Villa Rimona, in one of our three comfortable zimmers. A zimmer is the Israeli term for a self-contained vacation rental suite, complete with private entrance, garden, kitchenette, bathroom and jacuzzi.
As native North Americans ourselves, we understand the needs of travelling families. Our accommodations are clean, family friendly and reasonably priced.
This listing is for our "GEFEN" ONE-BEDROOM SUITE. It is perfect for a vacationing couple but can accommodate and additional three people in the separate SALON area. (there are separate listings for our TAMAR Studio, and RIMON One-Bedroom Zimmer. Also, our 4 Bedroom Villa is available for weekly rental.)
In addition to this GEFEN SUITE, we have separate listings for our RIMON TWO-BEDROOM zimmer which can sleep up to nine people and our TAMAR STUDIO unit which sleeps up to five.
We can accommodate groups up to 25 if we include our two additional guest bedrooms inside the Villa.
We are located in Yavne’el, a small village of about 3,000 people nestled into the side of the Naftali Mountain Range, only 18 minutes south west of Tiberias and 8 minutes from the Kinneret (Sea of Galilee)
The scenery is stunning. You’ll have the advantage of being in the country, yet close to all the activities in the north and the conveniences of Tiberias.
We have been in business for four years, but are new to AirBnB. We are 5 star recommended on Trip Advisor with lots of recommendations there. Also if you do a websearch for Villa Rimona Zimmers you should find us and see lots of testimonials there.
Your Zimmer is a self contained vacation rental unit. You have your own private entrance and key. You will have a parking space on our driveway steps away from the covered patio at the entrance to your zimmer. You are free to come and go 24 hours of the day.
Interaction with guests
We will be here to greet you and provide you with an orientation of your zimmer and Yavne'el (our moshava). In addition we can provide you with tips on places to visit while you are our guests. We'll hang your morning muffins on the door handle outside your door each morning. Other than that, you'll have full privacy. If you'd like to ask us questions about anything at all - local history, places to shop, or and biblical history we're available for you.
Other things to note
Your stay includes coffee and tea in your zimmer and Chana's homemade muffins each morning.
There is no smoking in your zimmers and we do not allow pets.
We made aliyah from Toronto in 1983 and spent the next fifteen years living, working and raising our family in Jerusalem. During those years we developed a passion and love for Eretz Yisrael.
In 1998 we moved to Toronto as Rabbi and Rebbetzen to help build the Village Shul community. In addition to hosting hundreds of guests in our home we gained over a decade of experience working as a speakers, event organizers and business people in the Torah world. As inventors of the KosherLamp and founders of Kosher Innovations we built a reputation for providing outstanding client service.
In the summer of 2009, we sold our business and returned to Israel. Our dream was always to live in the Galilee and chose Yavne’el because it provided all the conveniences of Tiberias, the comfort of country living and the full facilities of a religious community. Yavne’el in the lower Galilee is literally the gateway to the North and a perfect place to base your vacation.
Our home, Villa Rimona, has four bedrooms in which we host our own children and grandchildren. In addition to the Villa, there are three comfortable self-contained Zimmers with their own private entrances and gardens. We look forward to hosting you at Villa Rimona.
