All about the many townhouses for rent in Dubai

Townhouses are a form of housing that may seem a little out of place or perhaps unfamiliar to some residents of Dubai and with good reason. Dubai is well known as the home of record breaking skyscrapers and ultra luxurious villas but local developers are fast choosing the humble townhouse as an alternative type of house to build in Dubai. Providing more space than a traditional apartment and with the comforts and space of a villa, townhouses for rent in Dubai are becoming a popular choice for residents.

Townhouses are almost always multi storey and come attached to another townhouse but in some cases, they are freestanding - but all tend to be part of gated communities or compounds. You may see very different styles and types of townhouses for rent in Dubai but that is part of the beauty of this kind of property.

A Dubai townhouse for rent is typically leased out unfurnished (with a number of exceptions) and since they cater well to families, come in 2 to 5 bedroom varieties with gardens and sometimes private backyard pools. You’ll also find maids rooms as an added part of many townhouses which double into extra storage space if one doesn’t have a maid.

Where can I find a townhouse for rent in Dubai?

In Dubai, the best places to find top quality townhouses for rent include JVC and JVT, Reem, Al Furjan, the Palm Jumeirah and Dubai Sports City. Since each of these areas are in different locations built by different developers, the styles and sizes on offer will vary considerably. Townhouses for rent on the Palm Jumeirah give residents some great views of the Palm, JBR and Dubai Marina and afford residents bragging rights about living on a highy recognisable part of Dubai (and indeed the world!). For those seeking more suburban living in a quieter setting, renting a townhouse in JVC or Al Furjan may be more suitable. 

It’s advisable to visit these areas at different times of the day to get a good idea of traffic, noise and what it would be like to live there. It’s particularly important during rush hours and especially if you have to do school runs or get to work. Dubai has excellent roads and they’re developing just as fast as the many townhouse developments across the city so getting in and around is becoming easier.

Once you’ve found a townhouse for rent in Dubai that matches your needs and budget and you’ve signed your tenancy contract, visit your nearest typing centre to lodge your EJARI so you can get your EJARI certificate which is an official government record of your tenancy. It will come in handy should you need to lodge a rental dispute with your landlord, which often comes about due to unlawful rent increases that go against the RERA rental increase calculator

Townhouses offer the kind of living that is a bit beyond an apartment and just below a villa so it’s very unique and since the number of townhouses for rent in Dubai are growing every month, one has plenty of options to choose from. If your budget allows and your plans are long term, you may also wish to consider townhouses for sale in Dubai.
