8-bedroom properties are those that have eight allocated bedrooms. This type of property would suit a large sized family and their household staff. Almost all 8-bedroom properties available for rent in Qatar are standalone villas and they usually have good outdoor space and certain amenities like a private pool, a majlis and even outdoor separate rooms for household staff with bathroom facilities. The most luxurious larger villas are commonly found in West Bay, West Bay Lagoon and in the Pearl. Larger villas are sometimes semi-commercial and can be good for companies or for housing staff, so it is quite usual to see them advertised for these purposes.
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.
Rawdat Al Hamama is district in the municipality of Al Daayen and located about 18 kilometres to the north of Doha. Together with 11 other districts it makes up zone 70 of Qatar. It is situated between two major highways, the Doha Expressway also known as Al Shamal Road (Q1) to the west and the Al Khor Expressway also known as the "Al Khor Coastal Road" to the east. As part of the Qatar National MasterPlan 2030 the plans indicate that Rawdat Al Hamama will become one of two District Centres in Al Daayen. It is anticipated that it will serve the needs of between 30,000 and 50,000 residents of the local community in the south of the municipality.
There are no plans for a Metro station to serve the area, instead there will be a high frequency bus service that will provide transport services for the residents. Currently there are not many homes in the area for rent but it is expected that as the expansion plans for the area unfold there will be more residential rental opportunities in the future.
