If you're looking for a Zimmer in a quiet location with a view, this is what you need. Don't expect luxury -- the zimmers are quite basic, but you can see the owners made an effort to put a personal touch; it's quite roomy, with a nice bathroom. There was a very nice terrace, from which we could see the Druze village of Masada and the lake in the valley below, while getting lazy on armchairs.
Location is great - perfectly quiet, remote and countryside community, a mere ten minute drive from Majdal al-Shams and the Nimrod fortress. The owners were quite discreet -- a lady just came to give us the key, and then to take the money on the following day, but she was nice. We'd have liked to have breakfast but it was not possible on that day. I suggest taking food and drinks, there is a fridge. There is also a restaurant in the small village, they close very early but have nice food. I'd go again.
