A private independent cottage, totally separate from our villa. It is quiet, safe, cozy and very nicely furnished. There is a fully functional kitchen, W/D, & is significantly more comfortable that any hotel at the same price. 7 min walk to beach.
There are cats and a dog (an old whippet) on the property but they are not allowed in the cottage. We also now have a couple of free-range chickens.
Our cottage guest house will offer you a wonderful experience of living in Dubai, even if your time here is brief. Let us take care of you while you enjoy yourselves in this beautiful city. Enjoy the hustle and bustle of Dubai but come back to your private cottage at night for a relaxing and comfortable sleep. We are surrounded by embassies so it is very safe here. There is minimal noise from any mosque as they are not close by (except birds, we have lots of beautiful bird noises).
I am an experienced B&B owner having come from Paris. where I have been running my own catering business as well as a very successful B&B for 5 years. I wanted to recreate what I could here and would love to share our piece of Dubai with you.
Here are some of the items that are in the apartment:
Queen size bed (super comfy!, excellent quality sheets)
Basics like shampoo, conditioner, hair dryer, tooth brush/razor available upon request,
Large couch with pull out bed
TV but no cable, Netflix, apple TV, tons of movies on USB sticks.
Fully stocked kitchen with pans, small oven, mircowave, fridge, grill, Cuisinart coffee maker, table wear, spices, condiments, etc... Whatever isn't there we can provide.
Full size washer and dryer! And we provide laundry soap as well as coffee, tea, spices, sugar, whatever you need.
Dyson vacuum cleaner and cleaning supplies if you are staying for an extended period. We can also arrange maid service.
Your stay with us...
You will also hear the lions and tigers roaring in the zoo. They roar in the morning around 7am, mid morning, at dusk and sometimes chimps also holler in response. It is a magical experience to be surrounded by birds chirping each morning, what a great way to wake up!
We are a 7 minute walk away from a beautiful calm and clean beach. We have beach towels for you to use. The beach next to us is free and quiet with beautiful clear water. The beach directly in front is currently closed for construction but walk just to the left 5 minutes and you will arrive at the free beach. Want some waves? Drive 10 minutes down the beach to the Kite Beach which has waves, water sports and public facilities. When you come back to home you can wash off in our outdoor shower area.
There are stores, cafes, restaurants and malls all around. Walking distance to the beautiful and elegant Mercato Mall is under 7 minutes. There are all types of shops and a large grocery store inside. The other direction up the street has casual and elegant restaurants as well as a large choice of cafes, shops and 2 large grocery stores, one of which is Organics. We are close to everything and in a superb location.
Love em! Let me know if you need to bring them and we will welcome them with open arms. Plenty of playmates here. Crying and noise is not a problem here.
Need a taxi or bus? There are plenty just a minutes walk from the villa.
If you have a car you can just park safely on the street; there is plenty of free parking.
Need to know more:
Just contact me. No hard sell on my part. We are either a good fit for you or we aren't. Maybe I can recommend another property, maybe I can just give you some visitors advice. I would be happy to try and help. looking forward to making your stay memorable.
Interaction with guests
I will interact with my guests as much or as little as they like. They can call me when they are here or just come to my villa to ask any questions. I work from home so I am here most mornings. I let the guest take the lead. I also bake a lot and love to bring treats to all my guests if they like it.
Other things to note
If you don't like singing birds don't stay here. The area is very green and it a birds paradise. Our garden is large and kept swept and cleaned. We do have a lazy garden cat who will mostly ignore you and a sweet whippet who is normally inside but she comes out to play sometimes. She is shy (she's a rescue) but will love you if you let her.
Just the basics, NO SMOKING at all in the cottage, you can smoke outside if you like. There is a private area in front of the cottage which has a table and chairs. Noise isn't a problem, make as much as you want : )
You come and go as you please and have complete privacy. The cottage allows for complete independence as it is a separate structure away from our home and is like a small house within the garden.

Mom to 4 sweet children. I just moved to Dubai with my family. We came to shake things up a bit and experience life in a different part of the world. We have been living in Paris France for the last 14 years where I worked in IT and then started my own catering company and ran a very successful B&B in Paris.
I am originally from California and my husband is from New York. We speak English, French and are trying to learn Arabic.
