We spent two weeks in May at Joel & Vasili lovely apartment in London. We met eachother in London a day before Joel & Vasili left for our apartment in Tel Aviv and exchanged keys and information. The location of the apartment was perfect for us and is only a short walk to two underground stops on the Jubilee line, Supermarkts, restaurants, cafes and local shops. The apartment is very cosy with a lovely, big ensuite bedroom and a beautiful back garden (with a cute fox peeping from time to time). We were in touch during our swap so we could check if evrything was o.k and give eachother some local tips. It was our pleasure to swap with Joel &Vasili and we hope we will do it again in the future !
