Default The villa project, dubailand

Is there a reason they seem to be cosiderably cheaper than most 'similar' places?
Not in country until next Sunday, so I cannot find out for myself just yet. Is there anyone living there willing to give me their views on the development?

Thanks

I haven't seen the place, so take whatever I say with a pinch of salt, but I did live In Falcon City, which is very close and I think probably very similar.

The main reason would be that it is very very very far away from everything, and probably doesn't yet have all of the community infrastructure that a place like Arabian Ranches has i.e. pub, supermarket etc.
The building quality may also be of a lower standard (again, I haven't been there)

If you don't mind driving a lot and being fairly isolated it is probably worth a look.

I second the fact that Dubailand is very very far away from "the action". very very far. I'm sure there is a community being developed out there, but it is way way out there.

There is no infrastructure in both of these developments (supermarket, swimming pool, gym, etc.). But you get a lot of living space for your money (4-5br for 130k). Regarding Falcon City there might be noise from Emirates Road.

Thanks for the replies guys.
Sounds like it could be perfect for us. We currently live a fair distance from amenities so that wont be a shock to the system and we prefer the quieter lifestyle.
Will add the development to my list of possibles and take a look around when I get to Dubai this week!

Thanks again

Mat

I know a family who moved there and besides the fact that they have to carefully plan their grocery shopping so they won't run out of basics, sounds like they are enjoying it, due to the size of the villa they are able to afford.

Default check out the community site

You may want to check out the community website to get a feel for the location and the people - thevilladubai DOT webs DOT com

Although it isn't in the heart of Dubai, it seems that most people who move there like it because of the proximity to good schools and they say there is less congestion on the roads to some the major locations. Some quote 20 minutes drive to Dubai Mall.

Apparently now it is easy enough to order a taxi and there are shops and food outlets that deliver.

It is different from Falcon City in that all the houses are Mediterranean in style.

The master developer is Dubai Properties who have also built a number the Villa types. The other developer in the community is Mazaya.

The build quality is probably on par with most of Dubai, although some say that the DP villas are slightly better finished than the Mazaya. This may be a matter of opinion.

The Mazaya villas are generally smaller, but still a good size. All the Mazayas come with swimming pools, but most new occupants have had teething problems.

The smallest villa type is a Mazaya A1, the largest is a DP Mallorca. The Mallorcas are around 8000 sq ft or more, on plots of around 14,000 sq ft.

Phase 1 of the development has had the master plan landscaping completed and there has been an announcement of a Spinneys opening next year. Phases 2 and 3 are probably at least 12 months away from landscaping being finished.

The villa project is just same as apartment but the only difference is that villa is a enchanting residential retreat, inspired by the coolness and tranquillity of Spanish-style country housing. There are so many villas projects available in Dubai.

hi mevans,
I like in the villa project with my wife, we live in a 5 bed villa. yes it is way big for us, but when we searched around, value for money you cant beat it. we paid 110K per year, all the villa is lovely open void spaces and beautiful, we have a nice big swimming pool too. the area is so quiet and peaceful too. We dont personally go "out" that much anymore, as in drinking etc, but a taxi is easy enough to get.
Driving you are easy access to main roads, al ain road, emirates etc. I work at dubai airport and it takes me exactly 15 minutes to get there so it is ideal for me. mirdiff mall is so close, also dubai mall is only 15 minutes too. we have lived in dubai marina, arabian ranches and now here. We find this is the best out of all the 3 we have lived in (personal preference). It all depends where you go and what you do. shopping is easy, we go once or twice a week.
For us this is our dream place to live, but each to there own and all that......
