In the heart of Israel situated between the Carmel mountains and the sea, you’ll find this lovely Zimmer in Binyamina;  Grushka country accommodations run by Gerda (Hedva is her Hebrew name) Grushka. This area boasts a rich offering of beautiful white sandy beaches, crystal clear blue waters, luscious green landscapes, adventure tours, hiking, and a wealth of other attractions for the entire family including some of the best hiking and biking trails in the country. 

See this really excellent Carmel Hiking and Biking Trail Map courtesy of Hedva will give you all the details including where to rent bikes in the area and an English speaking guide. 

Hedva Grushka

Established in 1991 after a long stay in her hometown in the Netherlands, Hedva and her late husband Zeevik decided they wanted to bring European style country lodging to the area. In Holland, they were inspired by country style accommodations in the village they lived (which is the same village Gerda was brought up in). When they moved back to Israel, they decided to have a place in Zevek’s home village of Binyamina that can offer its guests quiet rest in a country atmosphere with a European style.

My family and I have stayed in Grushka’s Zimmer in Binyamina on several occasions on my numerous trips to Israel. I consider it to be my home away from home. They are warm wonderful people that offer extraordinary hospitality to all of their guests. Hedva is fluent in English, Hebrew, and Dutch. The location is a perfect home base for traveling central and Northern Israel with access to all major roadways.
