Fishermen, pearl divers and traders were the first Arabs living here, but after 1960 Jumeirah became the principal area for western expatriate residences and familiar to many tourists visiting Dubai.
There has been a great deal of hotel and leisure construction along Jumeirah Beach including the world famous Burj Al Arab hotel, the Jumeirah Beach Hotel and the Jumeirah Beach Club.
Jumeirah has also a famous mosque, the Jumeirah Mosque, which is open to non-Muslims for special tours to give insights into Islam and the recently opened Jumeirah City which consists of an architecturally interesting shopping mall, two luxurious five-star hotels, and a few residential areas.

Stayed in this place from Dec 24 until Jan 3, we really loved it. The location was nice, walking distance to the open beach, supermarket (there's a money exchange inside this supermarket), restaurants, starbucks, etc. We booked this place a little over a month before our arrival, Apple offered herself to set an itinerary for us, wow we really have not received this kind of offer from anyone before. Top notch service!! Those itinerary really help us made our days, through 11 days year end holiday. When we had trouble purchase At The Top of Burj Khalifa tickets, we contacted Apple to help us bought the ticket, and she made it, we are really grateful for that, otherwise we wouldn't be able to go to the top of Burj Khalifa.
When we were there, Apple was in Bangkok, but we met Juan who was so kind and generous. I stayed at this place with my wife and 8 years old daughter. We all enjoyed staying there. There was a big screen LED TV, but too bad there were no english channel for my daughter, but she just watched kids channel which dubbed into arabic and still enjoyed it :). They also provided us with clean bath and beach towels. Bathroom amenities also complete. Water, Juices and Milk were also provided. The kitchen is big and complete, and they allowed us to use the kitchen. We were also allowed to use the washing machine, the detergent and softener were also provided. They also lend us NOL Card, you just need to top up at the Spinney supermarket near the apartment. With that card, you can easily travel with bus and metro. Taxi can easily be found at the entrance of the apartment building
I would recommend airbnb traveler who travel to Dubai to stay in this place. You won't regret it.
Everything was perfect, especially the hospitality and the quality of the apartment and the gentleness of the host.
We appreciated very much the early checkin.
One word: AWESOME!
My friend and I visited Dubai for one week end November. Apple is the best host you can imagine. It was a pleasure to meet her and her husband. She helped us with organizing our stay, told us nice spots and you can tell that she really loves to be a host. The apartment is wonderful, Jumeira Beach is really close (5mins walking distance) and you can reach everything within a short taxi ride.
If you would like to experience a relaxing but exciting time in Dubai - you should definitely go to Apple.
I stayed with Apple and Juan with my friend and it was the best decision! They are a very friendly, helpful and kind couple. The apartment is beautiful and we had everything we needed. The location was good as the beach is walking distance and there's many shops and restaurants nearby.
Apple went out of her way to help us get set up in Dubai- from driving us around the city to view apartments, taking us to Ikea and helping us get phones and exchange travellers cheques! She was more than a host! Apple was unbelievably kind and gave so much of her time to help us.
I would definitely recommend staying with Apple and Juan. A fabulous experience!
Really amazing and lovely hosts! Was just perfect! Thanks a million Apple and Ian!
Thank you Apple for a great time in Dubai.
We spent 4 Nights at Apple´s Appartment. The room is great, clean and comfortable, well located in Jumeira.
Great place and value for money in Dubai.
Apple kindly arranged for the stay in Jenny's apartment as she another guest. It was top class accommodation in very sense. The apartment is spacious and very equipped - great kitchen and bathroom plus comfortable bed with efficient air conditioning. The location is ideal -close to the airport, bus routes into the city and then going South to the hotels and marina. There are lots of restaurants near by in a neighboourhood that is safe to walk around. Apple and Juan are very welcoming hosts. I for one will surely be back!
I have been for 4 days in this nice apartment and it was a wonderful stay here. Apple and Juan are excellent hosts. They make you feel welcomed even when you arrive in the middle of the night! They were very considerate and went out of their way to help me getting around in Dubai. Apple brought us to the metro one evening and even offered to pick-up from the metro again. That exceptionally good service is by far not necessary as there are taxis around everywhere and on top: they are very cheap. The neighborhood is very comfortable with easy access to a beautiful public beach, supermarket, restaurants and so on. The bedroom and bathroom were both extremely clean and comfortable for use. The beach towels and umbrella were already prepared for us. It was a delightful stay and I coming back to Dubai I will stay here again.
Me and my husband had a short but very memorable and nice vacation in Dubai in march this year. When we planned our trip we had been looking for a reasonable price and good location close to beach and Apple's apartment at Jumeira Beach was a really good choice and met all our expectations. We rented a room on the 1st floor of the condominium where Apple's friend Jenny lives. Jenny and Apple are very friendly and pretty young ladies, unfortunately we did not manage to know each other better as they traveled a lot during our stay (they work in aviation), a positive side - we had been on our own most of the time and had privacy we needed. As I already mentioned the location is just great, you don't need to spend money on a taxi trips to beach and it takes just 5 mins to walk there, nearby there is a supermarket, few cafes and restaurants, we also used kitchen facilities a lot cooking breakfast and dinner sometimes, so it was also very convenient in comparison with hotels, overall we enjoyed our time and stay there a lot.
It was my first time experiencing airbnb and I was a bit worried wheather everything works out. Looking backwards there was no doubt about that!
I came to Dubai to start a new life and I decided to stay with Apple, Jenny and Juan for the first week. I found a very nice and comfortable room as you can see it in the pictures. It is a quiet place and good for resting after an eventful day. The apartment is spacious and tastefully decorated. The location is perfect for going to the beach and to the other attractions in town (Dubai Mall, Burj Khalifa, Burj al Arab etc.).
Apple, Jenny and Juan welcomed me warmly. From the beginning I felt like coming home. Apple was always there for me. She was there for me when I arrived 5am in the morning until the end when she drove me to my new accommodation. I am so grateful for Apples, Jennys and Juans help and advice. Thanks to them it was easier getting familiar with the life in Dubai and also finding a place to stay and without their help I still wouldn't have found anything nice yet. Apple supported me not only with all her experience but also drove me to some of the flats to look at them.
I was looking for a place to stay and I found good friends. I don't want to miss them anymore!
If you are looking for a place to stay in Dubai with Apple's apartments you are in good hands!
