The Space

There are a good number of reasons to love this apartment. It's located at Dubai Marina which is a beautiful well-taken care of neighborhood in Dubai. The Marina is known for a gazillion restaurants, bars, clubs, shopping malls and the beach is a 5 mins walk from the apartment. In fact, you can see the Arabian gulf and the beach from the apartment :) There is a lot near the apartment where you can park for free. You can get around easily via the metro, the closest stop being 10 mins walk from apartment. Not to worry though as you can take a cab to the train stop that will cost you about 10 AED ($3). The place is one-bedroom with lots of space, a 40-inch tv, great speakers, lovely kitchen, two bathrooms, humongous balcony overlooking the blue waters of the Persian Gulf, 15 MB/s internet, basic cable with premier league and champions league football. I also live alone and keep the place very clean.That's about it i think. Let me know if you have any questions.

  • Hello! Great apartment, great host, rest by 100%! Joseph all the questions online reacted quickly, although we met only once, and then 15 minutes before departure. Many thanks to Joseph and good luck!

  • Joseph was a fantastic host and his apartment was absolutely perfect! Amazing views, great location (less than a 5mins walk to the beach and beach front promenade) and wonderful amenities. I couldn't have asked for a better stay in Dubai... Joseph was always on hand for anything I needed. I would highly recommend staying here if you are ever in Dubai.

  • Our stay at Joseph's apartment was an actual dream! After saving our lives by being able to accommodate us in less than a weeks notice to giving us the best possible stay in Dubai. The apartment is so amazingly, centrally located; steps from the marina, 5 mins walk to Marina mall, across the road from a public beach with wonderful cafés and restaurants. And located only a short drive from downtown, Dubai mall and the mall of Emirates, the gold souk, the jumierah palm ( you even get a view if the palm from the apartment). There is a free parking lot right next to the apartment block which is very useful but keep in mind that driving in Dubai is crazy!! Even though Joseph was out of town, he had arranged a friend to assist us with check in and check out ( our preferred times) and with anything else we might need. We couldn't have stayed in a Better place. An amazing apartment with amazing views. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay for longer. Thank Joseph for you superb hospitality and you absolute wiliness to make our holiday great! Don't hesitate in booking Joseph's place, you will not be disappointed!

  • Joseph was a great host. We stayed in his apt for 4 days.

    The apt was kept open for us, when got in. Joseph texted us frequently, to make sure we are good and needed anything.

    The house is in 31st floor, was in great condition The view is spectacular. The apt complex has security guards 24/7. so it's very safe. They can book taxi for you as well.

    JBR Walk is a stone throw's distance and so is the Dubai Marina Beach. There is a supermarket right opposite to the Building . It's called European Star Supermarket.
    From the balcony, you can see the Sky Dive Dubai runway & the Sky divers in parachutes coming down after a dive.
    . You also get a partial view of Palm. You can see Kempinski resort.
    Lot of Restaurants do a home delivery with no charge. so, it was easy for us to pick a phone and order food.

    Finally, if you stay in this place. Make sure you check out Marina View from Basement Level 3 ( B3). There is a walkway to the marina . You can see Yachts, Water Taxis and Abras. You can take a short ride in them as well.

  • Joseph was a great host! I liked the apartment since it was very clean and neat. Next time I am in Dubai and the apartment is available I will definitely book it again.

  • Joseph is undoubtedly the most generous and responsive host in history. Saved my life on more then one occasion and supported me in every way imaginable as I was transitioning to Dubai on a permanent basis. The apartment is in a perfect location, spacious with great views, clean and has everything you need. Very highly reommended!

  • Excellent location and great apartment. Literally 5 mins walk to the beach. Apartment has a fantastic balcony where you can watch and enjoy Jumerirah Beach and Palm Jumeirah.

    Joseph is a very nice guy. He tried to help us all the time through the phone. We left the apartment at almost 10 pm in the evening and he was OK with that.

I'm an avid supported of Arsenal FC and play lots of football/soccer. Love spending the weekends going out with friends or reading a good business book. Born in Nairobi, Kenya, I left to pursue a degree in Computer Science at MIT after high school. I worked for Microsoft in Seattle for about 2 years before moving to Dubai where I've been working for more than a year now. I travel quite a bit within Middle East and Africa as part of my job and as a result have a home in Dubai and also in Nairobi. I recently learned how to cook a steak :) Oh, and I'm loving how Arsenal is playing this season!
