I live in a small two-level gallery apartment in the quiet but vibrant neighborhood of Nachlaot. It's a 5 minute walk to the city center, Mahane Yehuda Marketplace and the biggest park in the city - Gan Sakker. You’ll love my place because of all the natural light, the high ceilings, large balcony (equipped with lots of yummy herbs and tea leaves!), an espresso machine, views, location, artistic decor and cozy atmosphere. My place is good for couples and solo adventurers.
Cozy, artistic, gallery apartment spitting distance from some of the cities greatest attractions. The space is small but well-organized and well equipped with everything you'll need to make your stay comfortable and fun. The sleeping deck (one level up) is spacious and clean with a comfy double bed with lots of fluffy pillows and soft white sheets. There is also lots of closet space. The living area includes a small couch and a second (very small) mattress. Kitchen is compact but functional with a gas stove, a toaster oven, and a little prep area. Balcony is big and serves as an extension of the living room. I eat most of my meals outside breathing in the great air and soaking in the views. I keep lots of plants and herbs including mint, sage and Moroccan Sheba that you can use in your tea. There's also a Nespresso machine.
It's all yours!
I work nearby and will generally be available to help set you up, give advice on what to do in the city, and answer any questions that might come up.
Please note that the steps to the upstairs level are quite steep and that the apartment can get pretty bright in the mornings. I'll be supplying two eye-masks which help, but if you don't get along with steep stairs or lots of natural light in the morning this might not be the place for you. Lastly, the apartment can host up to 3 guests in 2 beds -- one double bed on the sleeping deck, and another on a small floor mattress in the living room. The bed is great, but the floor mattress is, well, a floor mattress....
I'm a new-old resident of Jerusalem, having recently returned home after nearly five years of study and and work overseas. It's great to be back!
In my spare time I love rock-climbing, reading up on technology and folding origami (some of which you'll see lying around the apartment!). I'm also a sworn foodie, and I love to cook and to eat!
For work I run a small micro-fund for early stage technology companies. I am also a co-owner of an e-commerce platform for independent fashion brands in Brazil.
In the past, I've worked as a product manager, a humanitarian aid worker in South Sudan, Japan, Haiti and Nepal, and a freelance journalist published in Ha’aretz, Times of Israel, Galatz, Channel Two News, CNN and others.
