The apartment was lovely. There are incredible views out the bedroom windows and from the balcony also has the most incredible views. The last picture of the set really is the view, but that was taken on a hazy day. On a clear day, you can see even further, to the Golan Heights and Mt. Hermon!
The apartment was lovely, and as pictured. Very clean. The bed was comfy.
The kitchen is minimal: A big fridge with freezer, a hot water dispenser, a microwave, cups and wine glasses, plastic silverware and plates and bowls, a hot plate (but no pots or pans). Good for reheating leftovers or for breakfast, but not for cooking. (There also are no cutting boards.)
The location is great. It's high up the hill in Rosh Pina, which is how you get such good views. This means it's near the old town. Rosh Pina is very central to lots of interesting stuff, and you can easily see Tzfat, the Kinneret/Sea of Galilee, the Golan Heights, and the upper Galilee region from here. It's a good base. Even Nazareth is not too far a drive.
You definitely need a car to see much staying here. There's lots of free parking near the apartment.
Note there are two flights of stairs to the apartment, both down and up to get there, so it's not for those for whom stairs are difficult.
Shari was kind, and helpful, and spoke perfect English. She gave us advice on where to pick up food for shabbat, and on a nice spot to walk along the Jordan river, and other things worth seeing in the area.
It was a great place to stay!

The guest house, which is in a pleasant neighborhood and has a beautiful view of the Golan Heights, was clean, quiet, and well appointed. Our two sons, 7 and 9, enjoyed the yard and the jacuzzi was neat. And the owners -- warm, attentive, and responsive -- were an absolute pleasure. Also, Rosh Pinna is a cool town that unfolds on a hillside with a small charming old town. We would so stay here again!

Really enjoyed our time in this large, comfortable apartment. It features a comfortable master bedroom, a loft with room for two additional people, and a good sized living room and kitchen. The kitchen has a fridge and microwave, electric kettle, and paper/plastic dishes and cutlery. The apartment has heating and air conditioning, and the bathroom features a Jacuzzi. The view from the porch is spectacular. Shari and her husband are lovely hosts who are happy to answer questions, and they even gave us oranges, grapefruits, and lemons from their garden. The location is convenient for exploring various parts of the Galilee and Golan--everything we wanted to see was within an hour's drive.

Unbeatable views from the porch, very friendly host, cozy "zimmer"/small apartment, lots of lemons, oranges, grape fruit and other fruits and herbs in the garden, nice neighborhood.
The kitchenette is really WYSIWYG. There's all you need to make a cup of coffee (including fresh milk in the fridge when we arrived). Don't plan on doing much cooking :-)
Great base for exploring northern Israel, lots of things to do in and around Rosh Pina. Definitely much better than staying in a hotel.
