What do you mean with 'no luck'? I just checked on Propertyfinder and there are 179 apartments that fit your requirements:

1. Al Qusais 1, 2, 3, Karama, Bur Dubai. If your not looking for a high rise you can easily score a 1BR w basics for that price.
2. No, traffic 24/7. Over congested. Though rents can be dirt cheap, but, not worth the stress.
3. If Dubai is liberal, and Riyadh is conservative. Sharjah is somewhere in between leaning more towards conservative though. I honestly cannot stand Sharjah, that being said Qusais 1 (near dubai-sharjah border) is a really nice area to raise a family .

Monthly Apt. in Dubai
 
New here and am looking for an apartment to rent monthly in Dubai. My price range would be AED2500-AED7000 for a studio - is this a realistic amount of money to spend (and is 1 end of that range more likely)? Don't have a real sense of price points yet in the city. Also, where would you suggest looking online to have the most success? Thanks so much for your help!

Probably closer to upper than lower end for something decent.

Hee Guys & Girls,

I need your help. I will be arriving in Dubai next week and my roomhunt has not been sucessful as of yet...I will be working in Media City, therefore I would prefer something in JBR/Marina. My budget is 'only' 4K AED per month for a room (not bedspace). I have been browsing the web sufficiently to understand that some towers are dissuaded due to poor maintenace/noise. I do not mind living with other people...so a shared appartment is fine. I checked dubizzle, but my question for now is: which towers can you guys recommend me to look at with my budget?

Thank you in advance

Kind regards,

X (Male)

Out of interest, how long did it take you guys to move into your apartment after paying deposit etc?

is it true some places take upto 2 weeks before you can move in?

also, how long does it take to get DEWA connection if doing manually through service centres?

Hey guys!
Yesterday I was up reading this thread until 2am - first of all thanks so much to all of you for taking the time to share such important tips and I hope that I will able to share some first hand knowledge after a few months here!

I have just relocated to Dubai, officially about 3 weeks ago, though I have been coming and going for a few months. Based on suggestions I am temporarily staying in an apt hotel while hoarding cash for the big expenditures that will come with renting.
I already had so many questions answered by your posts but I don't find much specific info about the area I have been eyeing. I will share my needs/budget and would love and appreciate if someone could share thoughts

minum of 2 anything extra is ok but not mandatory. Budget 250.000/year if it was my astonishingly perfect dream house I could go up to 270k - love to be close to the beach and a pool would be awesome. Traffic is totally irrelevant as I either work out of UAE or from home.

Now the tough part: I HATE coumpounds, I need utmost privacy for myself, my family, friends and my customers and guests (i'm not a drug dealer!) I love throwing parties, lunches, dinner, I often have my customers over and so on.
I have lived in various countries in the region and I can't put up with security calling me every single time saying there is a guest or worse yet asking them for IDs, or conservative local families wondering what goes on in my house, with neighbours peeking in on my property from their windows and so on.

This said, I figured out I need to look for detached villas and combining that with beach proximity I guess I should search in the Haptons but I'm stuck in dubai so I'm looking at the Umm Suqeim/Jumeirah area even if I don't fit in the Jumeirah Jane description.
Houses don't seem overly exciting there especially for an architect such as myself.

Thanks for your suggestions
