Our first home in Dubai was a serviced, furnished apartment in Jumeirah Living World Trade Center Residences.
Hello convenience—thrice weekly clean up (including dishwashing!!), room service, walking distance to a pharmacy, supermarket, train, and a 10-minute walk to my hubby’s office. Everything else is a short ride away.
(that’s my maid and my little boy)
The kitchen is equipped too with all the dinnerware you need. Even little things such as cooking oil, salt and pepper, dishwasher and washing machine detergents are initially provided.
The main bedroom has a king size bed and a flat LCD TV. Master’s bathroom has his and her sinks, a shower and a Jacuzzi.
The other room has two beds, a bathroom with a tub, and no TV.
The place had a maid’s room as well, which we converted into a storage area (there was no bathroom, just a sink). All rooms were on the second floor, which is great as my little Tyler had enough peace and quiet during naps.
As with most hotels and apartments, this place has a gym and swimming pool.
One of the nice things of staying here is that it had cold water. Such a simple matter might surprise you but here in Dubai, during the summer there are only two water temperatures—hot and hotter!
The big bonus is that we got complimentary tickets to Wild Wadi Waterpark and the Madinat Jumeirah Private Beach Club.. yay!! My little boy received a little pressie from Jumeirah Living too! AND I haven’t told you yet..they gave us a luscious cake for our birthday 🙂
Service is amazing and staff is very friendly as expected from a place of this caliber.
Though obviously pleased, we stayed in Jumeirah Living for only 6 weeks. We knew we wouldn’t stay there forever, as we wanted something of our own. Also communal use of all those towels, sheets, and pillowcases among a thousand other guests is quite gross and unhygienic, especially in the long run. Still, this was an excellent choice for a transition home. I’d recommend this place even for those who are on vacation.
