Once home to Arie’s unimaginably huge videotape collection, this room now displays Arie’s collection of pulp novels and classic fiction, as well as assorted old cameras from his past.
This room is located just off the common room, inside the house. Guests will have use of the main bathroom in the house (in the common area).
Arie has travelled the world extensively throughout his life. Besides Israel, he has lived in South Africa, Denmark, Italy, France and the far east. He has travelled the Americas and criss-crossed India on his Royal Enfield motorcycle. Throughout his life and travels, he’s accumulated a huge amount of stuff. This testament to Arie’s unique taste for plastic trinkets, vintage lighters and toy trains, and many many other bits and pieces of weird, decorates the Awesome Eilat Guest House. Some of it is even in your room.
Please note that Eilat in general is a smoking town, and in Arie’s Awesome Eilat Guest House smoking is permitted in the common areas. While with four rooms, the house is rarely crowded, you should take this under consideration.
Are there private bathrooms available?
Of course! Three of the rooms come with their own separate bathroom and toilet.
Can I use the kitchen?
Absolutely! The kitchen is there for your convenience; store your perishables in the fridge, and make free use of the pots, pans and utensils.
Coffee and tea are there for you as well, so make yourself at home.
However, as with most guest houses, we ask that you keep the kitchen area clean, and wash your own dishes. If Arie’s own children have to do that, so does everyone else.
If you prefer privacy or kosher cooking, you might want to consider one of the rooms with a kitchenette.
What about meals?
Well, it’s called Arie’s Awesome Guest House, not Arie’s Awesome Bed and Breakfast. As such, you’ll have to provide your own food. However, Arie cooks his specialities a few nights a week, learn more on Arie’s Weird Menu.
What are the common areas of the Guest House?
Other than the kitchen, there’s a large lounge with satellite TV, stereo system and Internet station.
You can chill out in the big yard, at the picnic table or in the hammock, or you can climb up on the roof, and take in the scenery and local Eilat atmosphere.
There is also a shared bathroom in the common area.
