We are moving over to Dubai and are coming over for 10 days in April to find house/schools..
Q1 Kings or Repton? 1st Choices so far currently filling in forms - or other schools?
Q2 Arabian Ranches or Lakes ???
Sorry Finally - any Rental agents / websites that you can recommend? (sorry that was 3 Q ..)
Thanks V much
It's all such a personal thing. Both Arabian Ranches and Lakes are good family areas with great facilities and a real family feel. Your best bet is to look at a selection of villas in each and go with your instincts.
Same with schools. Both Repton and Kings have good reputations, but you will always get a mix of opinions. I do know of a couple of mums who have moved their children to Kings recently and their kids love
it. Again, visit both and go with how you feel.
As to agents. Haha. Not so easy to be partisan! Most are pretty useless. Not willing to show you round a good selection of properties, and do the absolute minimum. I used Better Homes because I thought
they were one of the best, but I was sadly disappointed. Next time, I will use Smith and Ken, because I genuinely think they are a cut above any others - they just didn't have anything on their books in my lowly price-bracket this time round
Whoops! Didn't spot the DESS and Wellington bit! Can't say I know much about DESS. I have met the Head at Wellington and really liked her, and the school is friendly and welcoming. I'm aware of some 'issues' with some GEMS schools recently - Wellington being one - but think they are GEMS issues rather than the schools themselves. Hope that doesn't just confuse you!
