Looking for a tzimmer with a pool. Sleeps 6.  Pool does not have to be that large but big enough for my kids to practice swimming in.   Close to Yerushalaim a plus.  Any recommendations appreciated.

Will upgrading a Golan sim to the 100 Shekel plan work for service in Italy? Or you have to have the 100 Shek plan for at least a month even when upgrading?

Regardless of price rimon is not Landau Rubin or eida so thatís not what youíre looking for.

Try this, it's a 5-br villa in the Judean Hills, with a private pool in a gated community with shuls, and it looks nice. I think it's 15-20 min from Jerusalem.  I've never stayed there but once looked into it.

I'm not sure what you're willing to spend and I think this is more in the price range of a nice villa than a Tzimmer, but it looks really nice and it's very close to Jerusalem.

I imagine they'd treat it like a new plan. It'll still give you 100 min and 2 GB even in the first 30 days though:

 שיחות יוצאות ונכנסות מחו"ל לישראל ומישראל למנוי. ב-30 יום* הראשונים מההפעלה - 100 דקות שיחה

גלישה בחו"ל עד 6GB בחודש. ב-30 יום* הראשונים מההפעלה הגלישה בנפח 2GB

What about if I upgrade to the Kosher 79 Shekel plan? Doesn't say the same rule in the red letters.

It does look nice and probably is out of our price range but we did try getting in touch with them for details.

They don't answer the phone and didn't respond to an email we sent last week.
