"Absolutely amazing place to stay, we could watch sunrise from bed! He had some really nice personal touches for us also, like the fireplace tv on and robes. We will stay here again." David and Desiree Field, Israel


"Thoroughly enjoyed our time in Arad, was a beautiful apartment, nice and clean and comfortable with stunning views over the hills from the terrace.  Ilan was very helpful in sorting out a local restaurant and giving us tips on how to get to Arad from Jerusalem and the Dead Sea.  Really enjoyed a nice chat just before we left as well.  Thanks a lot!  "Ashley and Magda, United Kingdom

"Quiet, clean, comfortable bed (we slept like in heaven), great facilities (kitchen, complementary Nespresso coffee and milk). Good location to start the Masada ramp siege trail: the entrance/start is 25 minutes by car. Wonderful terrace with partly desert view to relax."  Barbara and Frank, Germany


"Logement idéalement situé dans un quartier calme et vert. Il est possible de rejoindre la Mer morte et la forteresse de Massada rapidement en voiture. Le lieu est parfaitement propre et équipé, il offre une grande et agréable terrasse privative. L’intérieur est décoré avec goût. Ilan et sa mère sont accueillants et disponibles, ils ont été aux petits soins avec nous." Alexandre and Lisa, France


התארחנו במקום המושלם הזה בשישי שבת. צימר מאוד נקי ומעוצב יפה מאוד. יש בו את הכל, כמו בבית ואפילו יותר. והכי מושלם- זה הנוף! המקום שקט, רגוע, הכי מתאים לזוג. אנחנו מאוד מודים לאילן, בעל המקום על האירוח! בטוח שנחזור עוד. ממליצים בחום על המקום המדהים הזה!!!" אנג'לה וקיריל, חולון

"This accommodation was by far the best we lived in during our trip through israel. Ilan was really a perfect host. He not only welcomed us extremely lovingly but also took care of us during our stay. The terrace and the newly renovated apartment are equipped with everything you could hope for. really a top location.

Honestly, there was nothing we didn't like. We had the best night at Arad and enjoyed the wine we were given as a welcome gift. If we get back to Israel at any time we will definitely book a night at Marvin's place again."  Franz and Rebekka, Germany

"The apartment is very beautiful. It’s super clean, very well decorated and every small detail was taken care of. The terrace and the view it offers made our trip as it shows the desert and you can watch the sunrise and waking up to that was amazing. Our host Ilan was super friendly and hospitable he gave us information about everything we needed to know to go around the city. You should also try the breakfast. It was delicious. I absolutely recommend everyone to book the apartment, you will definitely not regret it." Patricia and Florian, Austria

“Well located with the panoramic views and great balcony from which to enjoy it. Coffee machine & other nice touches. Very easy people to work with. Thanks” Robert Ross, Australia


“We had an absolutely amazing stay at Marvin’s place in Arad. Although this apartment is relatively new on AirBnB, it’s the best one we’ve had traveling around Israël. The place is designed and decorated with high quality inventory to offer maximum comfort to its guests. The large terrace outside offers a spectacular view on the desert valley. Ilan and his mother are great hosts. We were lucky to have Ilan around on a Saturday as he offered us the option to show us the highlights of the area (Masada, Dead Sea, Botanic gardens, local restaurant and bar). This enabled us to see everything we wanted and completed an already fantastic visit. Highly recommended!”  Peter and Annemarie, Rotterdam, The Netherlands


"I stayed over with my boyfriend and enjoyed perfect hospitality! Everything was clean and tidy, we received exceptional treatment from the owner, and enjoyed amazing desert views. The place is situated in a beautiful area. The kitchen was well-equipped with everything we needed.". Sapir Sason, Rishon Le Zion, Israel


"The hosts are very kind, the view magnificent, the room is clean and comfortable, modern kitchen , and very quiet place.  Highly recommended."  Naomi and Yossi Yassour, Kfar Vitkin, Israel
