Desert Home, Mitzpe Ramon, Israel
Mitzpe Ramon is a small city in the Negev Desert, and Desert Home is a sweet little bed and breakfast sitting on the edge of where the desert meets the town.
Part bed and breakfast, part serviced apartment, Desert Home is such a perfect cozy place to stay. We arrived on the hottest day of the year so far, unloaded our luggage, and turned the a/c on.
Our very comfortable room at Desert Home
There are five guest units all named after desert animals: Porcipine, Ibex, Wild Donkey, Ram, and the Karakal.
We were on the second floor and had a lovely balcony to sit on overlooking the Negev desert and palm trees.
Perfect place to relax and watch the sun set
Each unit has a kitchenette equipped with a refrigerator, microwave oven, stove, kettle, utensils, pots and pans, and some goodies. There is a beautiful wood burning fire place for the cold winter nights, a stereo with c.d.’s, and a dvd player. Choose a movie from their dvd library and watch it from the comfort of your queen size bed.
Everything you need to cook all of your own meals
We did our own cooking while we were there and sat on our balcony watching the sunset.
As small as Mitzpe Ramon is, there are a lot of activities going on, from jazz, to spotting Ibex, to watching the sun rise over the Ramon Crater. There is also an astronomical observatory in town.
The next morning breakfast was served in our room. Now we have stayed in several five star hotels and this breakfast was truly the best breakfast we have ever had. Beautiful fresh fruit, muesli, halva, salads, fresh orange juice, fresh baked bread, homemade preserves, olives, and more.
The BEST breakfast we have ever had!!
It was nice to stay in a small establishment and support a resident of Mitzpe Ramon rather than stay in a 5 star hotel. Desert Home is a very charming place. The feel of being at home while being away was very comforting. We had a really wonderful stay, and only wish we had stayed more than a night.
