cottage on the sea--ideas?

I will be traveling to Israel early next year with my parents. My father is interested in renting a cottage to sit on the sea side and relax. I have looked on-line, but not found the right place. Any ideas from locals or other travelers? Any area along the Sea of Galilee is fine.

There are no private cottages on the Sea of Galilee. The only options are kibbutz hotels(some may have cottages) like Ein Gev, Ginosar or Maagan which was mentioned above, or religious guest houses such at at Tabgha.

Only on the Sea of Galilee (a lake) or also along the Mediterranean?

On the Med.:

Balboa, the OP has asked for properties on the Sea of Galilee, not the Mediterranean as you have proposed.

I suggest Moshav Ramot. It is not on the sea of the Sea of Gallili but on hills overlooking the lake. I was there six months ago and it was fantastic. http://www.dodo4u.net/EN/ The moshav has other B&Bs there too. There is a big resort there too, but don't mean that one.

I've stayed at Ein Gev and they are cute cottages right at the waters edge and surrounded by nicely done gardens. For relaxing, it might be just what you are looking for. http://www.eingev.com/

Ein Gev looks nice in the link above.

We stayed at Maagan (the one Pastor Al linked to) with our last tour. That was lovely. The units all had a sea view, and it is right on the water's edge. Our group gathered on the beach each evening - it was a perfect spot.

The official website is here, but I don't think the pictures do it justice. http://www.maagan.co.il/en/

You can find homes to rent from owners at www.airbnb.com. Some of these might be cottage-type homes.

Try "Nof Ginosar" just north of Tiberias or the youth hostel at Karei Deshe. The hostels have private ensuite rooms and are open to everyone.
