Watch the sun set over the lagoon from thirty floors up & sleep in a super king size bed while the lights of Doha twinkle quietly below. Outdoor Swimming pool and indoor gym included. Shops, a supermarket and restaurants less than 100m walk away.
Zigzag towers. Floor to ceiling windows. Outdoor swimming pool, gym, jacuzzi, steam room. And sunset views every night.
Come and stay in a beautifully furnished flat on the 30th floor overlooking the lagoon (where you can go running along the beach or take a canoe) and the golf course.
It is easily accessible with several disabled people choosing these towers as their home.
Flat above a fully equipped mall with Carrefour, Apple, Sony etc. I roll my shopping direct from the supermarket into my home.
Small dogs and children welcome, smokers are not.
There is a desk, lots of empty cupboards for you and a fully working internet. Satellite TV and a kitchen equipped by a girl who loves cooking. You'll be staying with a journalist who likes to cook, eat, drink and run around like a headless chicken setting up her new business. I am never home. There is also a playground just outside for visiting kids.
Everything apart from my bedroom.
Interaction with Guests
I am out....a lot. Or working. So if I do see you it will be rare but lovely.
It is so darn practical. Restaurants and a supermarket on my doorstep. A pool on the third floor.
There is no public transport that really works in Qatar sadly. I recommend using Niyaz (phone number hidden) or Posh taxi (phone number hidden). And for short journeys Uber is really affordable. You can use the house phone to make these bookings.
Other Things to Note
I drink alcohol and eat pork. Not a lot, but they may be in the fridge while you stay. If you cannot be near alcohol or pork products then this may not be the place for you.
Common areas should be kept clean and tidy. Your bedroom is your business. Just please strip the bed at the end of your stay and put the sheets in the wash.
Please leave a shelf free in the fridge for my food at all times. And throw away all open food at the end of your stay.
And, if possible, please stick to just free range (not battery) eggs. Thank you so much.
Please do not leave food or rubbish open in the kitchen. The rubbish shoot is out the door to the left and left again before the lifts. The black bags are under the sink.
This place was perfect for my first visit to Doha. It was nice to stay with a fellow female expat; I felt more like a roommate than a "guest", which was great for me. There are some good restaurants and a grocery store nearby, and the Hyatt is across the street. It's also good that she had a landline, so we were able to call for taxis (since we only had wifi on our phones). Great sunset view in the room. Definitely recommended.
Rosie was an amazing host! I only stayed one night but she went way above an beyond making sure I had a great experience. I would definitely stay there again when I'm in Doha. I highly recommend Rosie. She's super down to earth as well and she's rarely here so I pretty much had the apt to myself.
Rosie was great to stay with! She's easy to get in touch with and helpful in answering questions and offering suggestions on things to do. The apartment was really nice with great common space and the room has its own bathroom. The building is connected to the Lagoona Mall where you can pick up groceries or anything you need.
This is the review if my friend Akram who stayed in this listing as I booked it for him: "stay here was very comfortable and enjoyable. The bedroom was spacious enough, with a desk to work on and plenty of closet/storage space. The view is excellent too. Rosie is a wonderful host and she was extremely helpful during my stay in Qatar. The apartment is in a good location, close to Katara Cultural Village. I'll be sure to stay here again whenever I return to Doha. No complaints whatsoever!"
We loved our stay at Rosie's! We wish we could have stayed longer. Totally unique building with incredible view, chill atmosphere, and lovely apartment. Rosie was fabulous with timely and friendly communication. It was a great honor to meet her briefly. She rocks! Super helpful, kind, fun.......the real deal.
The pool was a great bonus along with a healthy options grocery store within the apartment community. Plenty of restaurants and shopping as well. Easy to catch cab to tour other parts of the city.
Highly recommend staying with this wonderful host and super cool apartment.
Thank you so much Rosie. We truly hope to stay in touch with you.
I was made to feel that i was stating with a friend i had know for years than just and rogue traveler. the apartment is situated in a nice area and convenient for qatari business.
i was sad it was only one night
I am a British journalist. I have worked at the BBC, was part of the start-up team for Al Jazeera English and left in 2011 to start my own production company here in Doha called Mediadante. I have also written an award winning book "How To Avoid Being Killed in a War Zone". I am busy - you will hardly see me. When you do I will likely be wearing sports gear as I love to be as active as possible.
