About This Listing
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.
Unfortunately, I was not able to meet Rosie due to my flight to Qatar being full (I fly stand-by). But, she was really friendly and communicative via e-mail. Especially after I notified her of my delay. When I arrived at her apartment, all I had to do was ask for the key at the front desk. The apartment is about a 40-45 minute drive from the airport and it isn't far from the downtown area. I really enjoyed my stay and the view was spectacular. Thanks Rosie!
a beautiful apartment, and Rosie made me feel very welcome. I would definitely recommend it to anyone here
This was my first airbnb experience and Rosie’s place was a good start! Her apartment is clean and at a great location in Doha - you can always visit the mall on the ground floor to dine, have coffee, shop, or even grocery shop. Traffic is a little high in that area at night but then again, it’s like that almost anywhere you are in Doha cause most roads are under construction. Although my interaction with Rosie was brief, she’s sweet, welcoming, and will give you your privacy!
Rosie was very welcoming and was available on the phone to answer to my queries.
Great place that's kept very well. The overall experience was very good.
Wonderful spacious apartment with an amazing view from the 30th floor and all the amenities you could need - swimming pool, gym and a big shopping mall downstairs. Rosie is barely home and so it was like having the apartment to ourselves and even for the brief period she did stop by she went out of her way to make us welcome - the TimTams were an extra special treat!
Rosie is really a great host, very helpful and friendly. The apartment is in an ideal location which in Doha means a lot.. the mall is basically within the building and west bay, the pearl are not far away, all which can be reached by a short drive. I highly recommend it, even if you are new to Doha or just returning. The apartment itself is spotless and really very pleasant to be in, definitively much better then being in a hotel.
Although I never met or saw rosie ( probably she's a myth ) but her apartment was real. You really feel way better then staying in hotel.

About the Host, Rosie
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.
Qtel - You can sort out your sim card here. Carrefour for groceries. Wagamama, chillies, Paul, Mcdonalds, Sugar and Spice.. Apple, superdry, Rayban store, 51 East, Reebok, Adidas and loads more.Doha Ad Dawhah
Issa the Thai restaurant here, is the best place to eat in town. A five minute walk away.W Bay Lagoon St Doha Ad Dawhah
You can go waterskiing or wake-boarding here.Doha Ad Dawhah
Good for a walk, for shopping and you can also take a boat from here for waterskiing, banana boating etc or just for a spin.Ad Dawhah
Qatar Philharmonic Orchestra plays here every few days. You can walk around this beautiful area and visit the tiny museums and galleries and go for a bite to eat. There is a beach too.Doha Ad Dawhah
Golf and grass and beer outside near the green.Doha
You can walk into here (with my advice) and run along the beach and swim in the sea in safety - away from the jet skiers.Doha Ad Dawhah
The jazz bar is fab. And a new rooftop bar has opened. And there is reggae on the beach on Fridays and Saturdays. Great nights out! Plus Hakkasan is one of the yummiest places in town.Doha
