My husband Gary (British Zimbabwean) and I (British) have lived in Dubai for over 3 years. We love living in the United Arab Emirates and enjoy enabling our guests to see as many of its unique sights as possible during their stay, safely and smoothly.
We have a son, age 7, and a very protective cat who guards the house from her spot near the door.
We have hosted over 60 guests from all over the world in our two airbnb rooms. Most are in transit but often they leave wishing they'd stayed longer to explore - Dubai's charms often take our guests by surprise!
While Gary works long office hours, I am at home and my son is at school. I enjoy the flow of people at my breakfast table, all with tales to tell (it seems taxi disasters are notorious the world over).
As a small family we enjoy getting out and about in Dubai together - beaches, waterparks, meals, movies and parks. Our family vacations are always to beach resorts, and our favourite was Bang Tao beach in Phuket, Thailand. We have visited neighbouring countries like Oman and Sri Lanka several times. Gary plays guitar and loves firing up a good barbecue. We can't live without good food and company, access to a swimming pool (our son is part fish) and sunshine (we are solar-powered).
