The maintenance could be a bit better, but not a deal breaker.
Love the area, 1 mile from the Burj Al Arab, and close to downtown. Minimal traffic, far enough away from SZR. 10-15 from almost anywhere I want to go or less. 2 min from the beach. Would never live inland, too much traffic. 5 star location IMO!

The maintenance and bugs
This place was truly magical when we first arrived because it's on the beach and that's an incredible access when you first move to Dubai. The villa was located close to the madinat Jumeira so that was nice and from the top of it on the roof we could see more… the fireworks from the Burj Al Arab. The Downpoints were the maintenance of such place... The finishings are usually quite poor and there are many things to repair... also its located on Jumeira Beach Road which is quite noisy and where the traffic is pretty bad. There was this amazing shack near the beach called Al Buqtair which we would walk to and eat amazing fresh fish and prawns with Rotis but this place is now so popular that its packed! Still definitely worth going though. The downside of living in a villa also is the cost of DEWA and water bills... They go off the roof because the construction is not insular enough and the air conditioners have a tendency to leak and unless the place has been completely refurbished and is new it is bound to happen and you'll end up with 6000AED Dewa bills. Apart from this it was very relaxing and really takes you away from the big city life! Show less

Positives
Cosy and comfortable, excellent value for money (170k)
Negatives
Nothing.... really.
Our villa is over 30 years old and is single storey. It has a small enclosed front garden, a totally enclosed, small courtyard garden and quite a large rear garden. It had been freshly renovated when we moved in 3 years ago including new quality tiled floors, new kitchen cabinets, more… new bathroom suites (2 1/2) and a new false ceiling in the kitchen. Although we hear the traffic from the front lounge a little, it is pleasantly quiet in the rest of the house and the rear garden is very quiet and secluded and not (easily) overlooked by our neighbours. The villa has a lovely homely feel about it and every room is quite spacious without being too large as is sometimes the case with villas in Dubai. We have garage parking for 1 car and on-street (free) parking for 2 cars. Price wise, this villa is a relative bargain considering the area we live in. In and around Jumeirah and Umm Suqeim, there is one company that owns 100s and 100s of villas. My villa is typical of this company..... it is old but has been fully renovated to a high standard. It's also "Tardis" like in that it looks so small from the outside..... but inside, it's very spacious. Having lived in a variety of properties in Dubai over the past 12 years, this is by far the best one... we've been here for 4 years now and hope to stay at lot longer.Show less

Negatives
The noise
As with all homes there is no perfect place, as much as I like my location it is very noisy, I live opposite of Wild Wadi, need I say more? Many days and nights can be beyond annoying. As the weather is cooling down the traffic noise increases, motorcycles more… and fast cars racing down Beach Road is not very pleasant when you want to sleep. I love that I have the beach close enough to walk to. I live close to restaurants which is nice but having my garage blocked by rude people is not my cup of tea. My villa is off of a service road and my driveway is a one way, so it takes me a while to get back home when you run to the store for milk and bread. Show less

Umm Suqeim is a quiet place where to live and most important pet friendly. The area where I live is not a community, most are private villa. I live in a small compound with nice neighbor, the matntenace is excellence, the house its not new but its in a good condition. more… The only problem is the garden that is not very big .Show less
