I've been renting out my holiday home via a couple of other very well known holiday rental websites (websites starting with 'Air' & 'Trip') for over 4 years. During this period I have gained a great base of repeat guests and fantastic 5* reviews.
Guests will have full access to the facilities within the residence including:
- Great (temperature controlled) outdoor pool, separate children's pool, large sun deck and jacuzzi
- Fully equipped gym, plus a sauna & steam room (as if it's not hot enough!)

The white-sand of Jumeirah beach is just a 3-minute walk away, where you can swim, sunbathe, or stroll along the exclusive shopping and dining promenade 'The Walk' with its many indoor and outdoor restaurants and designer shops.

Small but adequate and in a great location
The accommodation was small but adequate and in a great location. Chris was great with timely communication and reached out during our stay to make sure we were settled. The biggest drawback was the shower - very poor water pressure and struggled to maintain a consistent temperature. Overall, I would recommend this property..
Many thanks for taking the time to review my apartment and I’m glad you enjoyed your stay :)
As mentioned in my listing the studio is more suited to two adults (and a child).
I will address the concerns about the shower with the landlord as the apartments in the building rely on the landlords water supply.
Wow! We had an amazing stay at Chris place! The apartment is located near everything: the marina, the beach, the metro, restaurants, shops etc. Everything we wished for! Chris has been a wonderful host. He and his team were super helpful and professional! If we are going to Dubai again, we know where we want to stay!
Wow! Thanks for such a great review Ana. It was an absolute pleasure to host you both during your stay. I will be sure to pass on your positive feedback to my local team in Dubai and I'd love to welcome you back anytime.
Chris' apartment was great and Chris always answered all our questions quickly ! We enjoyed being 5-minute-walk from the beach, going to the swimming pool of the building, the great local area in the Dubai Marina (New Dubai), the functionality of the flat, the balcony with the beautiful view of the beach ... Everything was perfect, I would highly recommend it to anybody who'd like to go to Dubai.
Chanel, thank you for your great review. I'm so glad you both enjoyed Dubai and staying in my apartment. I hope to welcome you back to the apartment on your next trip to Dubai.
Perfect place in a great location
This is a GREAT place! Everything is perfect about this location: food, public transportation, markets, sight seeing. You name it it's got it. The apartment is beautiful. The concierge are extremely helpful along with Chris' staff. I've stayed in dozens of Airbnb locations and this one is by far the best of the best! Beautiful views of the marina and the sea as well! When I come back I will definitely stay here without a doubt!
Thank you so much for the great feedback and for being such lovely guests too. I Will certainly pass on your positive feedback to my local team in Dubai and I look forward to welcoming you again on your next trip to Dubai.
The property is just as described on the web site, excellent building, beautiful studio fully equipped, clean, cosy, great service (concierge). Well maintained pool, great views, perfect location for hanging around JBR and Dubai Marina. Easy access to supermarket, Marina promenade (through the building), cafes and restaurants, beach, the Walk...
Would definitely recommend to all!
Thank you so much for the fabulous review Vladimir.
I try to represent the apartment honestly and your review just says everything.
I hope to host you again on your next stay in Dubai.
Super waterside apt on the Dubai Marina and Beach
Our stay at this apartment was great, with stylish interiors and fully equipped from cooking equipment to towels and free Wi-Fi and local phone calls. The views are amazing onto the Marina and towards the sea. The location is very convenient - the tram stop is right outside the buiding, the nearest metro station is just a 5 minute walk. We did all of sightseeing by public transport from Dubai Creek to the Burj Khalifa. There is a local supermarket located on the basement level of the building with free home delivery service. After a day sightseeing, we enjoyed the large pool and hot tub and also drinks and dining on the beach - just a 5 min walk from the apt. I highly recommend this apartment - we have booked to stay again in January 2016.
Thanks so much for your great review Sandra and for being such brilliant guests.
I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay in my apartment and making use of the amenities in the complex and also those close by. As you say, the apartment is in a fantastic location with so many things (including the beach) close by.
I look forward to welcoming you back again in January :)
