About our home

Our home is private and a great family retreat from all the activities that you will engage in whilst visiting Dubai.

We have the normal mod cons like purified water, coffee machine, Thermomix, large screen TV, dinning table for 10, baths, baby sleigh bed, kids high chairs and kids cutlery and crockery.

We are centrally located in Al Safa 2.

- 5 mins drive to Kite Beach (jogging track, skate park, restaurants, patrolled beaches),
- 5 min walk to Al Safa Park 2 (great playground for kids of all ages),
- 10 min walk to Noor Bank Metro station (Dubai Mall, Mall of the Emirates, Old Dubai) .
- Wild Wadi water park is 10 mins drive away.

It's a well established area quiet area of Dubai with traditional homes and amenities all nearby.

At times the morning prayers from the mosque will filter into the home but that is all part of the ambiance of being in Dubai, otherwise it is peaceful and quiet.

We have a wonderful live in (external to the main house) helper - Alice, who will be keeping the house clean and tidy and she is extremely trustworthy and fantastic with children - great for babysitting!

We are a family with 2 daughters aged 6 and 10 so lots of toys, games, books for them to play with, not to mention the trampoline, scooters and swimming pool - please note there is no fence around the pool.

If you are looking for a home away from home (although even to us it feels like staying in a private resort!), then we would love to welcome you to our home!

(Please no large parties to respect our neighbours)


The number of tourist attractions and things to do in Dubai has grown dramatically in recent years.

The Dubai Mall and Downtown Dubai added a number of world class attractions to the city’s portfolio. The most striking is the 828 metre high Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. Visitors can take a high speed lift to the At The Top observation deck on the 124 floor for unrivaled 360 degree views of the city.

The Dubai Fountain is the world’s largest musical fountain. It’s free to watch but the best views are from the restaurants at the Souk Al Bahar and Dubai Mall. Other attractions at Dubai Mall include the Dubai Ice Rink, KidZania, and the Dubai Aquarium.

Elsewhere the city has even more attractions and activities that kids will enjoy. Options include waterparks such as Wild Wadi and Aquaventure, and the dolphin experiences at Dolphin Bay and the Dubai Dophinarium.

Most of the larger shopping malls boast dedicated play areas (Magic Planet at Deira City Centre and Mall of the Emirates, Fun City at the Ibn Battuta Mall, Playnation at Mirdif City Centre, and Encounter Zone at Wa Mall).

Going to the movies is a popular activity and most of the city’s cinemas are located at shopping malls. The biggest are the Grand Megaplex at the Ibn Battuta Mall and Reel Cinemas at the Dubai Mall.

Dubai is a major destination for golfers and boasts a number of first class golf courses.

The city even boasts an indoor ski slope.

Visitors with an interest in history and culture can wander around the fantastic Bastakia Quarter, visit the Heritage and Diving Villages, explore the Dubai Museum, or gain an insight into the Islamic religion on a tour of the Jumeirah Mosque.
