6-bedroom properties are those that have six allocated bedrooms. They are sometimes referred to as 6 bhk, meaning 6 bedrooms, a hall and a kitchen. This type of property would suit a medium to large sized family. Some 6-bedroom properties are advertised as having a separate room for a maid and/or a driver and some have their own attached bathroom too. Technically such properties would be considered to have 7 or even 8 bedrooms. Almost all 6-bedroom properties available for rent in Qatar are villas. It is possible to find the odd Penthouse or triplex in the Pearl too with large roof terraces and out entertaining space. The most luxurious larger villas are commonly found in West Bay, West Bay Lagoon and in the Pearl. Larger villas are also good for housing staff and it is quite usual to see them advertised for this purpose.
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 usually set out over two or more floors. In Qatar you can find two kinds of villas: either standalone villas or compound villas. A standalone villa is defined as a villa that has boundary walls and stands on its own private land as a detached and separate entity. 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. Both have their benefits and drawbacks for example, standalone villas offer more privacy for their occupants and compound villas usually benefit from many more amenities, security and maintenance. There is a wide variety of villas available in Qatar with varying amenities and suitable for most budgets.
Al Kharaitiyat is a district in the Qatari municipality of Umm Salal. "Kharaitiyat" is the plural for the word "Khurat" which roughly translates to "map-like". The district was named so due to the land terrain being uneven with many winding patterns giving the appearance of a map.
The district is located close to Al Shamal Road (Q1) and thus benefits from good transport links. There are several international schools in districts nearby making it an affordable rental option for families looking for a cheaper alternative to other more expensive districts. The area has had recent major infrastructure works carried out covering an area of 1.87 million square meters. The developments to the district and neighbouring Al Foroush area include 420 housing units and an addition of 22.7 km of road and 17.4 km of sewage. Al Kharaitiyat is represented by the multi-sports club Al Kharaitiyat SC. The area is mainly residential with several mosques and a family park. The area has limited properties for rent and the prices for rental are cheaper than Doha.
