Let us host you and help you with ideas for your family’s vacation in Israel, or just a quick get away, that’s kosher, shomer shabbat, family friendly and fun!
I’m Chana Veffer and my husband R ‘Shmuel and I would be honored to host you at Villa Rimona, in one of our three comfortable tzimmers in Yavne’el.
What’s a Zimmer? A zimmer is a self-contained vacation rental suite, complete with private entrance, garden, kitchenette, bathroom and jacuzzi.
If you are looking for a Family Friendly, Kosher, Zimmer in the Galilee then our home, Villa Rimona in Yavne’el is the place for you. We are 12 minutes from the separate beach beside Rebbi Meir Baal HaNess on the Kinneret and 18 minutes from the mehadrin restaurants in Tiberias.
‘We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Rimona. You went above and beyond our highest expectations.’
- The Friedenbergs, Monsey, New York
Just down the block we have many minyanim for Shacharit, Mincha and Maariv from netz until midnight. There’s a great Shabbos atmosphere in Yavne’el. A few minute walk from us is a large public pool with limited separate swimming hours in July and August
WHY CHOOSE VILLA RIMONA IN YAVNEEL?
Yavne’el is a small village of about 3,000 people nestled into the side of the Naftali Mountain Range, only 12 minutes south west of Tiveria.
The scenery is stunning. You’ll have the advantage of being in the country, yet close to all the activities in the north and the conveniences of Tiberias. And because about 40% of the population is Shomer Shabbos, you have all the conveniences of a frum community including minyanim and mikvehs and more modest surroundings.
“Who could have imagined the owners waving you in as you approach the driveway and then demonstrating personal concern for your every need, large or small?
Add to that large clean zimmers, spectacular scenery and many nearby attractions and you have all the ingredients of a reasonably priced, dream vacation.”
- Howard English, UJA Federation Toronto
We are just 2 hours from Jerusalem at the gateway to the north. Our tzimmers provide a calm and peaceful setting as your base for exploring the Galil and Golan and are perfect for extended families who want to vacation together. Most activities are fifteen minutes to an hour away.
As native North Americans ourselves, we understand the needs of the travelling Shomer Shabbos family. Our accommodations are clean, family friendly and reasonably priced.
Our two bedroom tzimmer can sleep up to eleven people. The one bedroom sleeps five. The studio sleeps five as well.
Each air-conditioned tzimmer is equipped with:
We have an outdoor meat sink and a lovely large patio with room to seat the whole family for barbecuing. (you bring the barbecue – everyone has different kashrut standards)
There are two large grassy areas for the kids to play too! Bring along your balls, frisbees and jump-ropes.

“Shmuel and Chana Veffer have been entertaining people in their home for 24 years in the name of Kiruv and now they are running a “family friendly” tzimmer. It’s religious, it’s clean and they try to anticipate all your needs. They have tzimmerim to suit your family size and private grounds for the kids to play – even soccer (my son loved that).
The rooms are spotless and they thought of everything to make our stay comfortable. Their property faces the most beautiful terrain and the sunset and sunrise are breathtaking. Their “moshava” has synagogues in every flavor and they have a great pool nearby with separate hours for men and women.
Definitely a place I would recommend for a vacation.”
