My brother and I stayed 6 days in the wonderful master room of Kim. It was a perfect time with my brother. The room was as described, with big baths and the all facilities was excellent. The place was quiet, clean and safe.
Kim and his wife gave to us some goods ideas to visit UAE. We love the gym, and the swimming pool.
His family was excellent with us, and we are very free to enter and exit of the compound.
Kind regards from Paris

Kim and family were very welcoming. Their place was spacious and easy commute to my workplace making it a great place to stay.
I've been guest of Family Christiansen for 10 days and was very happy choosing them as my hosts. My room and private bathroom were big and comfortable, the internet fast, and I had my own fridge, cattle and microwave. The first three days I had to work online and hardly ever left my room. So Kim showed me the possibilities to order food. The house was silent, so I had my peace, and my privacy needs were respected all times. As I never knew when I wanted breakfast next day, Margreth just set the table for me early, putting fruits, breakfast cereals, bread, nutella and jam, hot water for tea and coffe there. Butter and milk I could take from the fridge, this was the perfect solution for me. Both Kim and Margreth gave me good and detailed advices, where to go, where to shop and so on. I apperciated this very much and felt, that they helped me a lot to find my way in Abu Dhabi, a town I visited fot the first time. The pool and the gym were great, the pool was a bit too hot when I was there, so more for relaxing than swimming, but it might be different another time. The days I've been there were unusually hot for this time of the year, so the sun was heating it up quickly. Which reminds me: the guest-room has air condition as well, which didn't use. I felt, that Kim and Margreth really cared about my well being and I would like to thank again for their kindness and hospitality and would recommend them and stay with them any time with pleasure again!

My friend and I stayed for 12 days and it was such a lovely time we had. The room was as described, with big closet and own bath. The compound was quiet, clean and safe. I love the pool, gym and sauna!
