5-bedroom properties are those that have five allocated bedrooms. They are sometimes referred to as 5 bhk, meaning 5 bedrooms, a hall and a kitchen. This type of property would suit a medium to large sized family. There are some 5-bedroom properties advertised as having a separate room for a maid/driver and some have their own attached bathroom too. Technically such properties would be considered to have 6 bedrooms. Over 85% of all 5-bedroom properties available for rent in Qatar are villas. The remaining 15% of 5-bedroom homes for rent are apartments, penthouses, townhouses or on the odd occasion a triplex with a large roof terrace: perfect for outdoor entertaining.
It is advisable to check the facilities being offered and also the layout of the property as some agents do not always list all the amenities fully. It is also best to view any properties that interest you in person as there are many aspects of the home that you can gauge better when you visit the property.
A villa is a property/house that is either detached or attached to one or more other villas and commonly set out over two or three floors. A compound villa is defined as a villa that is located within a residential compound or "neighbourhood/society". Compounds vary in size and can be anything from a handful of villas to hundreds in the much larger compounds. Renting a villa or apartment in a compound offers many benefits such as security, maintenance, swimming pool, gym, clubhouse with various facilities, children"s play area and other sporting facilities to name a few. Some compounds are gated and others have the convenience of a mini supermarket for groceries, a restaurant or even a mosque. There are compounds which are private and belong to companies offering their employees housing as part of their contract. Most international schools have residential compounds located near them and it is very easy to find good accommodation nearby for the convenience of families. There is a wide variety of compounds in Qatar that suit most budgets and have all kinds of amenities. It is worth asking the agent about any adverts you have seen and checking the amenities with them if you are looking for anything in particular, as sometimes agents do not list all the available amenities in a compound.
Muaither is a district in the municipality of Al Rayyan, situated in a rawda, or depression. This geographic characteristic allows water runoff to accumulate, resulting in plant growth which attracted Bedouins rearing livestock to the area. Hence the area name is derived from the Arabic word "mathar", or "place where animals are kept".
The east of the district is adjacent to the district of Baaya which is home to the Aspire Zone with its park, stadium and Villagio Mall. The district has good road links, Al Waab Street runs along the south edge of the district and Furousiya Street along its east edge. There are several parks and the community's medical needs are served by Al-Hekma Medical Complex. The district has more than 10 local and international schools for all ages and is home to Muaither SC, a multi-sports club with its own football team. Muaither Metro station will be part of Doha Metro's Green Line once construction is completed.
