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 six 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.
Umm Salal sometimes spelled Umm Slal, is a municipality in Qatar. The word Umm, in Arabic means mother, while salal refers to large rocks or stones. The area has been given the name "mother of rocks" due to the large rocky formations found in the area. The municipality shares its borders with Al Rayyan to the south, Doha to the Southeast, Al Daayen to the east, Al Khor to the north and Al Shahaniya to the west. The municipality is the only one in Qatar that does not have any coastline.
The northern part of Umm Salal is largely occupied by agricultural land due to the presence of a large aquifer. In the 2015 census, Umm Salal accounted for just over 10% of Qatar's agriculture despite having only a corresponding 3% land size.
The southern part of Umm Salal is home to a town called Umm Salal Mohammed which has numerous farms, wells and a large water reservoir which is filled during the rainy season. The three main industries found in Umm Salal are construction, agriculture and retail. The municipality boasts the largest Mall in Qatar called Doha Festival City or DFC for short. The gigantic mall covers a staggering 244,000m2 and cost just under 6.5 billion Qatari Riyals to build. Umm Salal has in recent years gained popularity as an upcoming area to rent a home in Qatar outside of the capital with access to all the modern conveniences and variations of housing to suit all types of renters.
