Smile September Accommodation

Hi Guys,

I'm moving to Abu Dhabi in September from the UK and am currently looking for an Apartment.

I'll be working in Mussafah (near Dalma Mall), I'm looking for a 1 bedroom Apartment and i would rather not spend more than 90k AED.

I'd like to be in an area with other western expats as I think this will make it easier to make friends/ settle in. Hoping for less than a 30 Mins commute if possible and a pool ideally.

Can anyone please suggest where I should be looking/ which buildings might fit my criteria?

Thanks
Tom

Check out al reef downtown but it's quite far out of the city and maybe suits families better. My suggestion is any of the newer buildings in Danet area (the block behind holiday inn on airport road) - al Dana tower has some furnished 1 beds and is worth a look, other buildings are danat A and B towers, al nasr 1, another new building beside guardian towers, there's a few around - Dalma mall around 15 mins drive, longer at busy times.

Most hotel apartments are still in their summer rates through September so could be worth considering for a while (or long term), 1 bed furnished apartment with parking wifi housekeeping, pool and gym etc can be AED 6-9000/month, depending on quality and location.

Thanks, I'll have a look at these!

I'm 24 and moving out there alone so i'd like to be in a community of people in a similar situation..
I've read a lot about Al Reem, I understand the commute would be longer but would I be better off there?

Hi,
I really think you should look at Al Rayyana community that backs onto Abu Dhabi golf club.
This website will give you details of properties for rent there as well as rest of UAE.

Please don't get confused between Al Reem (Island adjoining Abu Dhabi island near the Tourist Club Area) and Al Reef (long way out of the city on the road to Dubai).
Neither are particularly good for your work location. I think Abu Dhabi island is better for someone looking for a younger expat community and non-family location on AD island. I would suggest you look at the towers in the area near Khalifa Park or Zayed Sports City.

Not sure 1 bed Al Rayyana or Rihan heights would be in the stated budget :/ but maybe with rents coming down a bit - both are nice communities and worth a look.

Check out the Mohammed Bin Zayed City and Khalifa City, both are near and easy approach for Musaffah. I m living in Musaffah too but nearby the western accommodation is only for etihad residence so better check the above mentioned areas. Good Luck

Hi,
1 beds in Al Rayanna are in the 85-90k range now!
Rents have really slipped down this year!

Thanks for all the advice!

Al Rayyana or Rihan heights look ideal, are the prices listed on Dubizzle and Property finder accurate? or can you negotiate down/ are there many add ons?

Hi,
Prices are not very negotiable - but always worth a try!
You need to pay 5% agents commission, normally 5% deposit and there will be a connection fee for the electricity/water.
