My friend and I had such a wonderful stay at Krivine. We found the guesthouse through Marion's *fantastic* blog, visitingnegev.com. The blog was a huge help in planning our trip. We arrived at Krivine late and John picked us up at the bus. It was freezing outside but the room was bright and warm. The bed was extremely comfortable: a mattress not too firm nor too soft, nice linens and blankets. Great water pressure and plenty of hot water in the shower. Well-stocked kitchen with everything we needed. We had dinner at the pub (less than 5 minutes' walk). The pizza was mediocre but the salads were delicious. The next morning we had such a lovely and delicious breakfast with John (try every one of his homemade jams!). It was great chatting with him and Marion. John gave me excellent hiking recommendations and directions how to get to Ein Avdat National Park. The hospitality here is simply superb: before I went out for my hike, John told me if I couldn't back to call him. I did, and he was there in less than 10 minutes, saving me a 7km walk back. No one was checking in, so we were able to keep our room until our late afternoon bus. John kindly drove us to the bus and also told us how to hitchhike, and we were successful in getting a lift. Staying at Krivine was SO much better than staying at a hotel, and John and Marion are absolutely wonderful hosts. Highly recommend for Sde Boker/Midreshet Ben Gurion.…
We stayed in three different places in Israel and by far this was my favorite. from its eclectic vibe to its location and the hosts were amazing, the Israeli breakfast was great! we enjoyed chatting with the other guests around the breakfast table. when you walk outside there is an amazing view and the air was so clean I wanted to stay forever.
We had wonderful stay at Marion and John's guest house.The rooms are very comfortable and breakfast is tasty with a local touch. We went hiking and got to stop by a lovely beduin tent where we had an unforgettable meeting with its owner. Of course make sure to pay a visit to Paula and David Ben Gurion's graves and their desert hut!
John and his wife have a lovely guest house. It has different rooms with different comfort levels depending on your budget and the number of people that need accomodations. Breakfast is lovely, generous and really pleasant. We had the good fortune of John sitting with us. He absolutely delightful and full of information of the whole area.
John and Marion are truly spectacular hosts, and we had a delightful stay with them! Beautifully appointed rooms, lovely garden area, spectacular neighborhood/setting, delicious food, and excellent company. Thank you so much John and Marion!
