Interaction with Guests
I normally wake up at 7am to go to work and I have to pass through the living room to leave the apartment, but I always try to not make much noise if the guest needs to sleep.
I work during the day, and arrive at the apartment at night during the weekdays.
Sometimes I have time to hang out with my guests and show them around, if they want to see great places of Dubai.
I like to become friends of the guests and along the course of 1 year I met amazing people and made great friendships.
The building is a 2 minutes taxi ride or less than 10 minutes walk from the Dubai Mall and Burj Khalifa (the world's tallest building) with its fountains, restaurants, bars and shops and the Dubai International Financial Centre.
It's 5-10 minutes taxi ride to the beach.
The location is ideal shopping, entertainment, business and leisure.
There are several convenience stores within a few minutes walk that can deliver to the apartment.
From the airport, it is a mere 10 minute taxi ride (about USD 10). It is also very close to the DIFC, Exhibition and Trade Center, in case you are coming to Dubai on business.
Taxis are available 24/7 in the entrance of the building, and the metro-station is a 10 minute walk.
At 11pm I close my door and go to sleep so the guest is not allowed to take a shower in my toilet after that.
First of, Leo was a great host. He made us feel very welcome as if Leo was our long time friend. He gave us access to everything in his place. We chatted a few times. At one point when he was about to leave for work, It seem like he was the visitor and we were the residents. This is how much you will feel at home in his place.
The view was superb. Very stylistic design and it really matches the structure and the environment. Very close to Burj Khalifa and the Mall of Dubai.
I played his drum set one time. I enjoyed the view looking through the glass window while I was playing the drums.
Place was very relaxing and also clean.
GREAT CHOICE for us.
It's really a fabulous view, and the room is big and clean, with a modern decoration and have lots of CD Book collections. U R GOING TO FEEL ALIVE there.
During my stay, the host was out for visiting, so I shared the house with his friend, who is a beautiful girl, and we got along well with and it wasn't convenient at all.
Unfortunately I went to Dubai during the Ramanda，there was no club and could only eat outside until 7pm .... gosh just careful when u pick up the traveling days
Anyway, i totally recommend u guys to this beautiful city view house :)
Very nice fancy modern place! Anna is very helpful, Momo thx for a ride!! Thanks for everything! Room is very nice and very close to Dubai mall!
The house is really in fabulous design! And just as the photo which host Leo post on the web. The view from the room is very good and impressive!
The apartment has good security. Don't worry if you tracking alone. It is near the metro, just 10min walking.
I will suggest people to rent the apartment if you come to Dubai!
The flat is very well located and the view is really amazing!
I just met Leo very briefly, as he had to travel. So the flat was entire for me.
Leo's place is great because of the perfectly central location (just 10 mins walk to the Dubai mall) and the stunning view just next to your bed. The apartment is new and stylish, located in a sophisticated building with great facilities like sauna, pool and gym. The only negative aspect is that I didnt have much privacy and I couldn't even take a shower in the house. I had to leave the house early because of the cleaning people coming even if my check out was the following day. The apartment wasn't clean. Probably that's due to the fact that I booked it in the last moment, so he didn't have enough time to get things ready.
I would still recommend this place
This apartment is probably the best option for an awesome stay in Dubai, and Leo has definitely to be one of the best hosts in town. The picture are totally loyal to what you will find. Actually, the view is just breathtaking, the best "welcome" this crazy city can give you. The apartment is new, clean, modern, well decorated and very functional, everything was well taken care. The building is an atraction by its own: swimming pool and gym at the 30th floor. All workers are friendly and helpful. Great location, walking distance to the subway and you can always find a cab downstairs. Nice clubs, bars and a great art gallery two blocks away. Leo is a great guy: calm, helpful and friendly. Very easy to communicate with before and during my stay. We had the chance to chat and hang out together in one of the nicest areas in the city. My experience in Dubai could not be better, and I own much of that to Leo. Definitely, I recommend it.
