We had a great two days exploring Dubai from the Simmonds Villa. The house is at walking disance of the Jumeira beach, and the pool was our haven of coolness and relaxation.
Ian was there as our host and he was very helpfull in providing directions and also in adding colour to our Dubai impressions, by his personal experiences there. The dog and two cats added to us feeling at home.
Thank you very much!
The location, the family, the room, the pool, we loved every minute of our stay. The family is warm and friendly. They gave a great inside view of Dubai life and are very supportive in providing touristic ideas.
The room is well decorated and provides everything you need for a comfortable stay. So is the rest of the villa and the pool.
Gluten free gave our stay a positive additional educational value.
A big thank you to: Melanie, Ian, Liv and Alex.
We had a wonderful stay with Melanie, Ian, and the kids. Good central location in the city and close to the beach. Nice comfortable room and great breakfasts. Very nice to stay with someone local to give you some ins and outs of the city and some good tips and recommendations on things to do and see. We really enjoyed our time with them and definitely would like to back and stay with again some day. Better than a hotel stay.
We had a very pleasant stay with the family. They are so sweet and the kids are just too cute!
There could have been more storage space to allow for some more unpacking though.
We absolutely recommend this place, unless you are looking for complete privacy.
Great people, excellent breakfast and convenient location!
Highly recommended to people that need a place located between beach and city center.
Spent three days here in my way to India. Couldnt be happier about it. Highly recommended, lovely house and lovely family. If I'm back to Dubai I would love to repeat. Thanks!
It was a pleasure to have you to stay. You are welcome any time you pass through Dubai. Enjoy your travels!
The Simmonds family were really lovely and it was very easy to slot into their family for the 2 weeks I stayed with them. The twins were entertaining in sharing their lives with me and chatting about their school and activities. Melaine and Ian went out of their way to help with transport and were very welcoming- even at 6am when I arrived early after a long haul flight. The room was well appointed, generous in size and having my own ensuite was an added bonus. I would thoroughly recommend this as a good quality B & B if you are happy with animals (they have an enthusiastic dog and 2 elderly cats). It is close to the beach and local grocery shops. I would advise printing out the clear directions for the taxi driver as many of the taxis struggle to find a private residence without such guidance. I would be more than happy to stay with the Simmonds family on future visits to Dubai and can happily recommend this B&B to others.
My stay with the Melanie and her Family was very lovely. I felt well looked after but I could get some privacy if I wanted. The room was very clean and comfortable. The house is very nice and very close to the Downtown Dubai, however getting a Taxi is a little more difficult unless you order one.
I would stay with them again any time.
We could not have hoped for a warmer welcome from the Simmonds family which was especially appreciated after a long flight. The room was very comfortable, in particular the beds and the bathroom was spotless. The pool was a welcome retreat from the heat. This airbnb is suitable for families. Thanks very much for the wonderful hospitality and we'll see you the next time we are in Dubai
We had a great time with Melanie and her family. It felt like coming home to friends. They sure did a lot of efford to make our stay very enjoyable with healthy breakfasts, great coffee and their company. you must an animal lover though to enjoy the company of Wolfie the dog and felix and sylvester who are the residential cats/management team :-)
Thanks for letting us into your life hope to come back some time

Famille très sympathique que nous avons accueillie avec très grand plaisir . Ils ont laissé la maison nickel merci :) nous avons juste regretté de ne pas mieux parler anglais pour pouvoir plus échanger avec eux .
The flat was left in perfect state, Melanie took great care of it and hopefully I can host her again when she'll be next in London. Also, thank you very much for the chocolates :)
