There’s a lot of demand to live in Jumeirah, however, there are restrictions in place. Owners are all local or from the GCC, and even though any nationality can rent, tenants have to be families rather than groups of singles. It has a great location near to the beach, Burj Al Arab, shopping malls and fashion boutiques, lots of cafés, nurseries, and schools. Madinat Jumeirah, with its commercial souk and restaurants, is a go-to destination in the evening.
The area is easy to access from exit points off Sheikh Zayed Road, which lead to Jumeirah Beach Road and Al Wasl Road – these run parallel along the length of Jumeirah. While there is no Metro there are plenty of passing taxis to flag down and a bus route. A tramline runs from JBR to Al Sufouh, south of the Jumeirah area. Reports suggest that the tramline will extend as far as the Burj Al Arab in the future, bringing it into Jumeirah itself.
Your living options.
The area is quite extensive and residents can choose from villas near to the malls, such as Mercato Mall in Jumeirah 1, or others may prefer to be nearer schools in Umm Suqeim or have views of the Burj Al Arab. Typically, villas in Jumeirah have between three and five bedrooms, which are very popular with families, but you will also find villas with six, seven or even ten bedrooms.
