I stayed at Declan"s Apartment and was completely overwhelmed. The property itself was classy, stylish and clean. The view was amazing and the property was well maintained and comfortable to stay in. Declan is very easy to communicate with and is very generous. Hand over was quick and smooth. The kitchen was was fully equip with everything and also had essentials on arrival and complementary items also. I highly recommend Declan to all airbnb users, as you will be more than satisfied with this property. Will definitely be staying here again.
Beautiful apartment with amazing facilities in the apartment and also the building. Close to restaurants and a great gym and also the beach is 15mins walk away. Super comfort ale bed with a massive TV in the bedroom and another large TV in the living room. Declan was very flexible with the check in time as I arrived very late and he was very gracious meeting me.
My husband Birger and I stayed in Declan's apartment for 10 days in March 2014 and we really enjoyed the stay. All communication before and during the stay was quick and easy-going. Declan's girlfriend was so friendly waiting for our late arrive at midnight. She gave us the key, important information and we felt a warm welcome. In the apartment was drinking water, some food/snacks, towels, soap etc. If we needed anything, for example more towels og plugs, it was delivered immediately.
The apartment has a perfect size for a couple. Very nice with a washing machine, free WIFI and television. Lovely view from the living room, sunshine on the balcony in the morning till midday, nice to eat breakfast here, sunshine at the pool till about 2 p.m. (spring time). We used the fitness center in Indigo Tower, it's ok, but do you want more equipment you can use the Fidelity Fitness in Almas Tower right next to the apartment. Some noise in the bedroom (from the big road), but we used ear plugs during the night and could sleep without problems.
Wonderful with only 2 min. walk to the metro, 10 min. walk to the Dubai Marina Mall and 15 min. walk to the beach. Easy to get a taxi as well.
We can warmly recommend Declan and his apartment.
What a perfect place to stay in Dubai!! We stayed at Mr. Declan's place for two weeks and we just love it. He and his girlfriend are lovely persons, very willing to help, to give advice and just make sure you feel comfortable. Best of all Declan and his girlfriend were most excellent and friendly host and really made our stay. We appreciated our times chatting and contacting to both of them. Apartment was beautifully appointed and the bed was super comfortable. The apartment was beautiful with amazing views. The location was perfect, walking distance to Dubai Marina mall, the metro and the beach, a lot of good restaurants and supermarkets. Proximity to the metro was also very handy and we used it many times during our stay. We really enjoyed our stay, we only wish it was longer. We would highly recommend anyone to stay at Declan's apartment, you will not be disappointed! A wonderful experience for our family, we have taken home many great memories!!! Thank you, Declan!!!:)
It was a pleasure staying in Declan's apartment and he was a great host - very flexible with check in / out times, quick to answer any questions and gave us lots of useful information about the area.
The apartment itself was exactly as described and it is as good as it looks in the pictures - big, bright & modern with plenty of space for a couple and very clean. It has great views over JLT from 2 balconies, nice pool area & gym and 24hr concierge. The apartment is close to the very busy main road, but once the doors are closed you can only hear a quiet hum.
It was in a great location - right outside the JLT metro stop, 15-20min walk to the Marina & Beach and close to several supermarkets & restaurants. Really easy to pick up taxis from the main road when we didn't want to take the metro.
We were only in Dubai for a week but it felt like home straight away and if our travels bring us to Dubai in the future then would stay here again. Highly recommended.
Declan's appartment is wonderful: splendid view, great space, a swimming pool, jacuzzi, sauna and gym facilities in the building!
It's a great place to stay in for leisure but also business, I worked from the apartment for a whole month and was very comfy in the living room to do so with a great Internet connection.
It was easy for me to go visit my clients with the metro which is in front of the cluster entrance, only few stations to Media City!
Cross the street and you're quickly on the walk, then the beach, then the Marina....that's certainly a great location.
Declan has been very helpful, he sent me a detailed list on everything that is to know: closest & best grocery shop, phone instructions for me to buy a SIM card etc.... and he's been very responsive whenever I had some info to ask him, I often received immediate answers on (website hidden)!
The sofas in the living rooms are awesome, perfect for a nap or watch the TV (all these channels with cool TV series broadcasted the day after they're airing in the US....!)
I'll definitely try to stay at his place should I come back to Dubai again and I recommend it highly.
I never got to meet Declan - only on (website hidden). Pre visit he was very helpful with information on the apartment and surrounding area, plus tips on what to do + more importantly, direct route to the beach ;-) When I arrived, I had a couple of questions + he replied very quickly to resolve them. Declan had left some supplies for me (coffee, milk, etc) which was great given my midnight arrival! The apartment is lovely, homely + comfy; huge bed + great shower. I felt very safe + secure any time of day or night. The pool area is very convenient although (as in most of Dubai) you don't get the sun all day long because of surrounding towers - but the beach is less than 20 mins away. Really close to JLT metro station; lovely walking spaces around the lakes/cluster; plenty of shops + eating places. Would happily return to Declan's place on a future trip to Dubai.
Declan's a great guest. Although it's a short stay, would have loved for him to stay longer. Thx
I can't say much about Declan, because I didn't really spent much time with him. But I have very good first impression - he seem very generous and friendly.He left the apartment very clean! I would love to host him again! Thank you!
Declan was great. Good communication, and flexible with meeting arrangements. Welcome back anytime:)
When Declan and I set up his reservation I was in Costa Rica and he was in Saudi Arabia -- but believe it or not Declan's Chicago stay was a seamless success! I can't say enough about Declan - he was very flexible and easy to work with regarding his arrival. He treated the apartment very well, the beds were made when I returned and it was clean as a whistle. I would recommend Declan to anyone looking for a kind, personable, resourceful, and respectful guest.
