← Back to ‘The World’s Best Airbnbs’

Israel’s Tel Aviv has become such an international city that it’s hard to define what it truly means to be a local. It’s equal parts a relaxing beach destination, an all-night party spot, a cosmopolitan cultural center, and an ancient historical site. Often dubbed the ‘Manhattan of the Mediterranean,’ most locals are OK with their city’s increasingly urban identity, which shows in the selection of Airbnb vacation rentals. Most are starkly modern, elegant, and within walking distance of the beach. To help visitors plan accordingly, we’ve gone through the data and hand-picked the best Airbnbs in Tel Aviv to have you feeling like a local.

Minimal Gallery Studio

As you’ll quickly come to realize, staying in Tel Aviv isn’t cheap. Whether you’re in town on business or just stopping through on vacation, saving some money never hurts. At $82 per night, you should consider this minimal gallery studio near Marina, one of the trendiest neighborhoods in the city. Even though it’s a studio, there’s a full living room, and the bed is lofted above the kitchenette which opens up space for a couch. Reviews rave about the little balcony, the cozy bed, the cleanliness, and the location.

Spacious Apartment by the Beach

With a balcony draped in houseplants, lots of surf decór, sea-blue cabinets, a mini book collection, and funky blankets, this spot feels like Tel Aviv’s version of a beach bungalow. It’s about 300 feet from the beach (which is close enough to feel the sea breeze), and a five-minute walk to the Carmel market, Nahalat Binyamin (another street market), and the Dizengoff Center (a popular shopping mall). The bedroom is large with a queen bed, and the living room has two couches that friends can crash on after a long night in Tel Aviv, which happens to be one of our 5 Cities With the Best Nightlife.

Elegant and Chic Loft

The big dining table and the seating area have this place feeling like an inspiring co-working space. Lots of art and books on the wall, vintage furniture, a chalkboard, a non-flat-screen TV — if you’re looking for a hipster spot for your Tel Aviv vacation, look no further. With two big bedrooms and a sofa that turns into a double bed, this spot can fit up to seven people fairly easily. As far as location goes, it’s surrounded by lots of trendy bars, restaurants, and galleries, and is just a 10-minute walk from the beach. It’s also just about a 20-minute drive from the Ben Gurion International Airport.

Tel Aviv-Yafo Apartment

Located in arguably one of Tel Aviv’s most sought-after neighborhoods, right on Eduard Bernstein Street, this apartment-loft is probably the most modern gem on our list. Two huge bedrooms, one with a king-sized bed and one with a queen, make it great for two couples. The whole ambiance is very sleek and modern with hardwood floors, sharp wall art, and a minimalist kitchen. Best of all, when you stay here you get access to a pool and a jacuzzi located nearby. Few other Tel Aviv vacation rentals can say that.

Royal Penthouse

Tel Aviv is a place where locals aren’t afraid to throw money around, so staying in a place called the “royal penthouse” is technically staying like a local. No beating around the bush here — this place is flat-out plush. It’s a multi-story unit with ocean views, three sizeable bedrooms, and a super nice outdoor patio. The building’s architecture pays homage to Isreal’s Middle Eastern roots with green marble and a mosque-style entrance. If your large group is looking to go big for vacation in Tel Aviv, keep this penthouse in mind.

Cozy Garden Apartment

For something a little less gaudy, opt for this cozy garden spot just five minutes from the beach. What it lacks in city-wide views it gains in backyard barbecues. You and your friends and family can get comfortable in the patio out back, which has a nice lawn, comfortable patio furniture, a gas BBQ, and lots of trees for shade and privacy. Inside, you’ll find one master bedroom, two guest rooms, and common spaces with a couch and a sofa bed.
