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 Penthouse is the name given to the apartments or the units on the highest floor of a residential block or hotel. They can occupy one or more levels and are typically differentiated from apartments or duplexes because they have luxury features or occupy a more spacious floor space than their counterparts in the same building. Some penthouses have particular features like a private lift, 24hr concierge or a roof terrace with views across the city they are located in. Being located on the top floor of the buildings they occupy they offer more privacy and less disturbance for their residents. Of course, with these added features they are command a higher price and are harder to find especially in popular locations. The majority of penthouses in Qatar are found in The Pearl and some in Lusail in the new and luxurious Waterfront area developments.
Doha is the highest populated municipality in Qatar which shares its borders with Al Daayen municipality to the north, Al Rayyan to the west and Al Wakra to the south. With a population of around a million people it is home to approximately a third of Qatar's population. Al Doha gets its name from the Arabic word "Dohat" which means "roundness", and is named as such due to the rounded bays along its coastline.
The municipality is located in a central position on the east coastline of Qatar and is home to the majority of the residential areas, business districts and administrative centres of the country. Hamad International Airport, Hamad Medical City and the financial district of Al Dafna and West Bay are all located in the far east of the municipality near the coast. There are two districts namely the Industrial Area (Zone 57) and Wholesale market area (Zone 58) belonging to Doha municipality but located outside the boundaries of the municipality as two enclaves within the Al Rayyan municipality. Central Doha is home to the historic Souq Waqif and the Presidential Amiri Diwan. The beautiful Corniche Promenade runs along the east coast of Doha and serves as one of the major roads linking Doha to the northern and southern parts of Qatar.
Doha is probably most famously known for the luxurious reclaimed land development of The Pearl spanning over 4 square kilometres, an area that offers all types of homes available for rent to suit any requirement from large luxurious standalone villas with pools and private beaches to waterfront apartments by the marina in beautiful towers offering the best facilities to its residents.
