Interaction with Guests
We love to interact with our guests, but can also appreciate people's need for time alone and privacy. We're happy to have some conversations about life, what we're all up to on the planet, and our travel adventures.
We appreciate that it is quiet and relatively private.
There is taxi and bus service nearby.
This will be a comfortable place for a couple or a small family and the third floor provides privacy and space that is away from our family on the first two floors. Modest parking space right next to the villa is possible. Breakfast is available in the morning and arranged the night before or before arrival to assure suitable foods. Housemaid will facilitate laundry. Food is easily ordered from outside of the house for delivery at very reasonable rates if preferred to eating in the plentiful resteraunts nearby. A pug and exotic cat live in the house. The compound is relatively quiet and peaceful, it is important that visitors respect the sensibilities of local culture related to noise and dress in public areas.
Oladiji and Robin are respectful, engaging, and warm hosts. I stayed with them for my first week in Abu Dhabi. Their wisdom and support helped me acclimate to and navigate through a new country and culture. Their place looks exactly like the pictures and feels even more welcoming. In regards to location, they are just a 30 - 40 mins inexpensive bus ride/ fairly priced taxi ride from main city locations and activities. I especially enjoyed the ability to travel around Abu Dhabi and come back to the relaxation and serenity that is Oladiji and Robin's home.
Best Airbnb experience yet. Wonderful room. Very quite surroundings. Set up like a hotel room. Highly recommended.
The Dada family are a great host, with attention to detail and very friendly. The place is ultra clean and the compound is beautiful and elegant.
I would recommend this hidden treasure to anyone visiting Abu Dhabi, who would like to combine both privacy with a cozy home feeling in one single package.
