My spacious two-bedroom apartment is located in the heart of Marina Walk. 2 min away from Dubai Metro Station. Really great location with lots of restaurants and cafes to chose from. It has a nice view of the Marina.
Staying with me gives you the real Middle Eastern hospitality experience. To help you decide I have listed some frequently asked questions for your ease of reference:
-Does the guest room have an attached bathroom or is it in the common area?
The guest bathroom is adjacent to the guest room.
-How big is the guest room?
It is big enough. It has a queen size bed. With wall closet across the wall. The curtains are blacked out and the bed is one year old that is hardly being used and very comfortable.
-How late can we check in and check out?
I am flexible. If I am at home, I can gladly greet you. If you want to check in at times where I am at work or out, I will leave the keys for you at the reception/security desk.
-Is there someone already sharing the apartment with you?
No but sometimes I might have my mom, family member or a friend visiting. But they can be with me in my room.
- Can we smoke at the balcony?
I am sorry but I cannot have smokers.
-Where is your apartment located?
It is located at the Marina Walk opposite side of JBR. It has a nice view of the water and boats.
-Where is the Metro Station?
The Dubai Marina Metro station is just opposite the entrance of my building. Literally you will walk 2 minutes to get there. You can even see it from the guest bedroom window.
-Are there restaurants and/or supermarkets in your area?
Just below my building there are many restaurants/cafes to chose from; spinneys supermarket is 5 minutes walk; a convenient store (that delivers to the apartment) just below. Dubai Marina Mall is 15 minutes walk, Dubai Yacht Club 20 minutes. JBR and the beach 10 to 15 minutes walk.
-Are there any Taxis available in your area?
Yes, there are taxis 24/7 at the entrance of the building.
-What are the amenities you have?
You will have access to a very nice 22 meters U shaped swimming pool where you just want to chill the whole day; there is a gym and a BBQ area. You will really feel like you are on vacation!
-What can I have access to?
You can have access to my kitchen, fridge, food, drinks, laundry, and amenities. I can also lend you my hairdryer and flat iron (saloon professional).
-Describe your apartment?
My home consists of two bedrooms and two bathrooms. With Laundry room; living and dining room and a kitchen of course. Also a nice cozy balcony that overlooks the water and boats. I do not have curtains in the living area in order not to block the view. My furniture have a nice feel and comfortable.
Where do you come from?
I am Canadian but born in the ME.
Friendly, helpful, active, service oriented and caring. I love sports and travels. I love to cook when I have time. I host dinners and lunches for my friends and colleagues frequently. If you are active and like sports, you can join me running, swimming or biking. I can even teach you few of my famous recipes. I wake up very early and go out to do my sports; promise to be as quiet as possible. I work during the day but like to come home after work. I sleep early during the week but can stay up late during the weekend. I get excited about learning new things and I am always in a good mood. Oh and my smile is my brand.
Do you drink? and are you vegetarian?
I do drink socially. I eat mainly fish but occasional meat that I cook myself. I prefer home cooking always.
-Describe the neighborhood?
My neighborhood is very nice and friendly where people come to enjoy and chill out; such as going to restaurants, or taking boat rides, having shisha and what not. My neighbors are mostly teachers. You will find runners, bikers and people walking their dogs in the morning. You can have your breakfast at some restaurants that stay open 24/7. It is really an awesome area!
Wishing you all the best in your search!
If you want to feel at home, have everything you need during your home-away and greeted with a smile everyday, then you are at the right place..
Few more things to know.. I don't have a TV (but then again who needs a TV in Dubai). A housemaid comes once a week to clean.
It was first time with airbnb, we were very cautious about staying at someone else’s house. This quickly went away when we met Hanno. She was very accommodating and went out of her way to ensure that we had a pleasant stay.
Everything was perfect, apartment is exactly like it is on the pictures, and views out of the windows are even better! Location is also very good, Maria is the best area to stay, and you have both metro and the beach very close to the apartment. Hanno is very nice and friendly.
What can we say.. we just LOVED it at Hanno’s place! Wonderful person! If you want to stay near the metro, beach, shops, restaurants and having amazing hosts (and add to that the Marina bay right at your door step!).. Then this is the place to be! What are you waiting for? BOOK! ^_^
I can't thank Hanno enough! Staying at her house was better than staying at many friends home. She was very attentive, always making me feel at home.
The area is great, the apartment is great and the host is great.
I used the kitchen, the washing machine, the living room and dining table, even the balcony with the great view! It was a great experience.
I will definitely stay here again when I comeback to Dubai.
We had a great stay with Hanno at Dubai Marina. The ovation of the apartment is excellent - close to the Metro and to all the facilities plus the balcony has a view of the marina itself. We loved the lively atmosphere of the place. Hanno is a great host who made us feel totally at home.
As all the written recommendations, we totally connect up with the other visitors: Hanno is a great host! Check-in was quite easy as she deposited the key at the reception, while she was at work. Her appartment ist very cozy and clean, the guestroom is spacious with a big closet and a comfortable bed. From the balkony you can enjoy a fantastic view over the Marina. To the beach it's only a 15-minutes-walk. It was our first time staying with AirBNB and Hanno made it a warm experience: unrestricted recommended!
Choosing Hanno’s apartment was the best decision ever. The most perfect location possible, the metro station is a 1-minute walk, the beach is only 15 minutes away and it lies on the most beautiful part of Dubai Marina, next to the yacht port. The flat is clean and tidy, very nicely furnished and has all the necessary equipment. The private bath provides you with complete privacy. Hanno is very polite and takes into consideration that the guests on holiday have a different time schedule while she is working. She is a perfect host, welcomes you warmly as a friend of yours, provides you with all the necessary information and on top of all these, it is a great pleasure to cook in her kitchen. It was a fantastic vacation, thank you Hanno!
We had a wonderful stay with Hanno. Her apartment is clean, quiet, comfortable and very well situated in the Dubai marina. Hanno is a very pleasant person, and provided the perfect level of hospitality.
This was our first experience with airbnb and we were pleasantly surprised.
Hanno was a great host that made us feel welcome the moment we met. The location was great - right at Dubai Marina with excellent shops, restaurants, and opportunities for people watching. The room was very spacious and bright, had a comfy bed, and storage for the week we spent at her condo. Although we didn't get to see each other too much, she was very helpful and accommodating. We would highly recommend staying with her if you're going to be in Dubai - thanks Hanno!
I spent an unforgettable time with Hanno.
She is a very kind and caring host with an open mind.
And she loves doing sports.
We share our passion for cycling - so it's been a great adventure to join her cycling in the desert. We went to the Al Qudra Cycle Path which is an awesome place for cycling: bikes only, no traffic, only you and the beauty of the desert.
Her apartment is very modern and clean with an amazing view. Hotspot location!
I'd eagerly recommend staying with her.
Thank you Hanno for everything making my stay so special!
I am sure I will be back soon!
Great location! One word to describe the apartment and the host: amazing! Our 17-year-old daughter spent 3 days in Dubai and she was delighted to stay with Hanno. So glad Luisa has stayed there, everything was perfect. Fantastic place and host. The apartment is very nice, neat, tidy and the bed very comfortable. Hanno is a wonderful and sweet person, my daughter loved her. Since the first contact she was nice and friendly. She was not only a wonderful host she was a mother for Luisa in Dubai. She was very helpful and gave her best to make Luisa feels like at home. Even if she could not meet Luisa she was in touch by phone and taking care of her. We are extremely grateful for her kindness and we hope one day we can return the favour. A big THANK YOU for everything you did for Luisa.
The first moment that i entered in Hanno's appartment i felt like i was home right away. It was very nice going aroung with Hanno and having dinner with her at home. Other then that the appartment is on a perfect location facing the Marina and having all kinds of nice restaurants and other things to do on few minit walk distance! Me and Hanno became good friends, and whenever i am around i will happily stay with her again.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
