There are various types of accommodation available in Dubai. You can find both furnished and unfurnished accommodation, and prices differ on the type of accommodation as well as the location. Some areas are more upmarket than others, such as along the Jumeirah Beach, Palm Jumeirah, Dubai Marina, or New Dubai.

You can find apartments in various modern buildings, usually high-rise ones. These tend to have a balcony but no garden. If you’d like to have a home with a garden, you can check out the townhouses or free-standing villas.

You will have to consider factors that will determine your quality of life, such as the distance of your accommodation from your workplace as this will impact your commute time. And the proximity of schools and other facilities if you relocate with your family.

As the KHDA inspection reports place schools into four categories (unsatisfactory, acceptable, good, and outstanding) based on a number of key indicators, they are a great place to start researching potential schools.
