I live in Silicon Oasis, but on the apartment side, not the villa side.I'll be moving to DSO with hubby in August for a 2 year contract at the Gems School they're setting up there. I'm prepared for some hard work but wondered if anyone else already works or lives there, or will be moving there in the future?
'does it feel like u are in the middle of nowhere?' - I don't feel like I'm in the middle of nowhere. DSO might not be the marina or jumeirah, but as you need to drive anywhere in Dubai anyhow I think it's fairly well located and has got good facilities for what we need. But it depends on what you expect in terms of where you live and the drive to school/work and back. You might want to consider the drive from emirates hills to DSO for school drop off/pick up 4 times a day. Others will know better than me, but it might take 30 minutes each way. AR will take 15/20 minutes each way and Cedre Villas at DSO 2/3 minutes.My son has just been offered a place in year 1 at the Gems school in silcone oasis I am moving out with my daughter 18mths and 4yr old son in august. currently looking at places to live. my husband lives in JBR and works at media city and would rather live in emirates hills but i've been looking at cedre villas or arabian ranches do u feel like u are in the middle of nowhere?
