I live in Arabian Ranches and have done so for 2 years, it has everything there. Al Reem villas which are about 2,200 sq/ft are currently renting between 110K to 140K depending on the number of installments you want to pay the rent over. For your kind of budget you could get something bigger.Looking for a Villa in a good area - 3 BR close to shopping in the 160 - 180 range. I am looking for something with a bit of a back yard (Grass) that is expat friendly...Ive checked Better homes, but their web site shows very few pictures of the properties.
The Lakes in Emirates Hills has a bunch of new villas that are renting now. Great lifestyle with pub and restaurants plus gym in the community. Very close to SZ
You need to give me some driving lessons Jynxgirl!!!!!!!As much as I dislike this place.... DG (as long as you are not leaving from 6:30 am to 9 am and coming from 5pm until 8pm) you can get out and on the highway lickity split and can make it to/from Abu Dhabi in about one hours time going the 155 km or so without getting flashy flashed by the camera once you reach the pavement change. I make the drive four days a week and have it down to right under an hour. The gardens that are by the Ibn Mall seem to be a bit nicer and I do think there are some villas in that area.
I said I would end up being corrected!!!!!Definitely less then an hour by setting cruise control at 140 in Dubai and 160 in AUH.
And Jnxgirl from where did you get 155kms ?
