Orna was very friendly and helpful in our pre-stay correspondence. The apartment was, indeed, beautiful. She also brought by a single bed futon type chair for our son to stay on so that we could have an Aunt/Uncle stay with us one night. I was surprised that Orna was not okay…
Unfortunately Lori belongs to the class of tourists determined to get everything for free as a policy. She would never say a good word, and always searching for faults to gain free housing. From the start the business contact with Lori was wrong. Lori wanted to book three nights via the website Airbnb but the commission's of the website bothered her so she request to pay only for one night and a request to pay the remaining two nights directly to me on arriving to Israel. Lori request to reduce costs in every way and insisted not to pay even the $ 80 for cleaning fee. She also invited for two nights her uncle and aunt to stay in the apartment free of charge that saved another $ 60. Saving $ 140 was not enough for Lori so in addition she requested to make a Shabbat dinner in the flat and and asked to invite another 8 people, and only after a strong resistance from me Lori agreed to cancel the party. I have waited for hours in the apartment on the first day to meet with Lori that for some odd reason could not find the place on mount Carmel Haifa while she travel in the Galilee and derived though some villages till she finally managed to find mount Carmel. On reception i instructed Lori how to operate the jacuzzi and it is accurate and clear that Lori didn't follow the instructions or maybe just forgot and just let the water come out in violation. Lori did not supply any evidence for any damage and at the last night to her stay she called at ten o'clock blackmailing and threatening that if she will not get a refund for her last night stay she will contact Airbnb to defame me and the apartment. Surely it must be said with regret that in tourism there is always a chance to meet a visitor that his main intention is to earn a free accommodation and such tourist will always try to find faults or make up flaws in order to earn. The panorama flat is a great place. There are no flats like this in all over Haifa and Lori's behavior was cruel and meant to harm the good name of the host and the apartment.
We visited Haifa for a family wedding and to see our son, who now lives there. The apartment was perfect for us. In addition to being very clean, with an outstanding view across Haifa Bay and to the north, the location was excellent. It was a short, healthful walk to Carmel Cente…
We had an amazing 10-day stay at Orna's beautiful, spacious apartment. As soon as we arrived, we were blown away by the incredible views of the city, all the way down to the sea. It's nice to enter at street level and then have the views of a high riser! The little touches of hos…
