Finding a villa to rent in Dubai is easier than you think.

Dubai is well known for its soaring skyscrapers that make up its shimmering skyline but there’s more to the city’s housing than soaring towers. This is where the humble rental villa comes in. 

Villas are plentiful across Dubai and they vary greatly in design, size and features. Before the many towers came into the picture, villas were the primary housing option for the population of Dubai and they remain very attractive to this day, in particular as a rental option.

What draws people towards renting a villa in Dubai is that a villa is usually synonymous with cosy family living and they often come with a backyard for entertaining and gardens for the children to play in. Some luxury villas will be part of gated communities as part of master developments such as the Palm Jumeirah and Arabian Ranches. But there are also areas with standalone villas for rent, like Al Barsha and Umm Suqeim.

Villas in Dubai

The rental villas in Dubai start off with at least 2 bedrooms and go all the way up to 4, 5 and 6 bedrooms. You might even spot some with even more rooms than that! Due to the fact that families mostly rent villas, there’s often a maids room as part of the housing for those who require it. In Dubai, there’s a good mix of one level and 2 storey villas available with some even coming with an additional 3rd level!

Some of the older areas of Dubai like Jumeirah will house older looking villas whilst newer developments tend to opt for a more modern look, sometimes around a certain design theme. Inside is a different story as every family chooses to kit out their pad as they like. When you choose to rent a villa in Dubai, you choose an option that is financially more comfortable without the long term commitment of a house purchase. It also makes for great family living which becomes even more exciting in the cooler months with the option to entertain in your backyard.
