Jumeirah review, March 2015

Positives
Beach in walking distance
Negatives
We moved into this villa when arrived in Dubai 3 years ago and never considered moving elsewhere. Yes we don't have community gym and pool that we would get for the same price in a new community, and the villa isn't brand new either. We had some maintenance issues as more… well and ended up with paying for a yearly contract with a maintenance company. The area can get quite noisy at certain times, but we got used to that very quickly and don't even notice anymore. Most importantly we can easily compromise on all of the above in return for the beach that is only a 10 minutes walk away and an area where you can actually wander around. The recent upgrade to the beach with jogging track, food outlets, etc, adds even more value to the area. And even though it almost feels like you are on a constant holiday, you are still in the middle of the city and can reach Marina just as easy as Downtown. Would highly recommend this place to anyone who prefers a great location over fancy features.Show less

Jumeirah review, January 2015
A villa with real character

Positives
The charm of the area and being able to walk everywhere
Negatives
The beach is closed for redevelopment at the moment
Originally when I first came to look at this villa on the corner of a busy street in Jumeriah One, I wasn't holding out much hope. The garden was full of rubble and I had to step over lose wires to get through the front door. The villa had more… been previously let to students and was in a terrible state. There was the promise of a complete renovation but so far the only sign of that were a few tools on the floor and a ladder. However something caught my eye about this villa, it may have been the stained glass window on the front door of the amazing light that came into the large spacious living room. Each of the bedrooms were spacious and light, four upstairs and one downstairs making it ideal to be converted into a study. The villa is on a small compound with a little pool in the middle and a small grassed garden around the edges. Instead of brick walls the villas are divided by a white wooden fence, adding to the old style charm. Immediately seeing the potential in the property, I knocked on the door of the newly renovated neighbours' house to have a chat and a look at how their property had been finished. I also wanted to know a little about the other tenants and how well the compound was maintained. Six weeks later we moved in, I'd kept a close eye on things during the renovation process and eventually it all came together. Eighteen months on and we're still here and hoping to stay. We've had so many compliments about the house, it has a real old school charm to it and although the house is quite big it still feels cosy. Jumeriah One is really coming back onto the map, everything you need is within walking distance which is ideal when we have visitors as it means they can go for daily walks, pop to the supermarket, Mercato Mall and any of the little shops in the area. The street we live on is busy as it is one of the interconnecting streets between Al Wasl and the beach road. Despite the traffic that can get a little noisy sometimes, it has a very friendly buzz and feels extremely safe. I like the character and mix of the Jumeriah One area... It proves that things don't need to be new and shiny to be wonderful.Show less

Positives
The area
Negatives
Maintanance problems
If you like walking and biking this is the area to live in. We are 5 min. walking from the beach, from a long 14 km running and biking track, from Mercato, Beach Centre and lots of small cafes. To us this is the "real" city feeling where you have more… everything close by. Jumeira 1 is to prefer over Jumeira 2 and 3 as they don't have as much city feeling over it and there you have to take the car for a number of things. We love it here and there are tons of smaller compounds where you really get to know the neighbors. Show less

Positives
The standards, facilities and location of the villa
Negatives
The noise
Very nice location, walking distance to shops, restaurants and 5 minutes drive from the beach. Beautiful and modern finishing, very contemporary style in the heart of Jumeirah1. Fully equipped gym at our doorstep, playground for young children, private garden and swimming pool in a very secure environment - 24h hours security. Full maintenance more… of the garden and the swimming pool twice a week. The downside is the noise from a building next to it but we are hoping it will be sorted out in a month or 2.Show less

Positives
The area is a good location
Negatives
Lack of maintenance and privacy
I thought this place would be good since I have a dog but no! Grounds keeper and workers always afraid when I took my dog out and would freak out. Plus noisy neighbors. Always had to jockey to hang my laundry because the neighbors would hog the line more… and not take there clothes off once they were dry. Plus the owner would take days to get things fixed like my toilet and air conditioner in the middle of summer heat! They would never take a check and only wanted cash...so I would have to wait up to two hours monthly for them to come around and collect. Plus they asked way too money for this converted makeshift apartment and the rent deposit was way too much as well...which I never got back because I left angrily at their lack of my comfort.Show less

Positives
Very peaceful and safe.
Negatives
The condition of the villa.
It was a very old villa in 2006 with many bedrooms and poor facilities. Its all happened before the crises. I would only recommend for families as its a local area. Very quiet, close to the beach perfect for kids.
