9 bedroom properties are those that have nine allocated bedrooms. They are sometimes referred to as 9 bhk, meaning 9 bedrooms, a hall and a kitchen. This type of property would suit a large sized family and their household staff. Almost all 9 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.
Al Dafna is a coastal district of the Qatari capital and municipality of Doha located on the Persian Gulf (sometimes referred to as "Arabian Gulf"). The word "Dafna" roughly translates to "dredged land", a reference to the fact that the district was built on reclaimed land following a large-scale land reclamation project along Doha's coastline launched in the 1980's. It is a rapidly developing business district and has quickly become the new downtown district of Doha and many foreign consuls reside in the area. The type of housing in the area is up-scale and often luxurious and prices tend to be higher than the average. There are plenty of standalone villas available for rent in Al Dafna and they are usually large with extensive private facilities. The availability of many international schools in the area makes it an ideal rental location for families in particular.
The area is known for the famous 456 room Sheraton Grand Doha Resort & Convention Hotel built in 1979 which is well recognised and loved for its unique architecture and the Conference and Exhibition Centre, which opened in 1982. It was not until the late 1990's that the districts growth picked up pace and this led to the development of many plush hotels, restaurants and shopping centres including the famous City Center Mall, one of the largest in the region: well visited by locals and tourists alike. One of the main attractions in the area is the Katara Cultural Village, the largest and most multi-dimensional cultural project of Qatar. It is a place where people come together to experience the cultures of the world. With a beautiful beach offering water sports, theatres, concert halls, exhibition galleries and cutting-edge facilities, Katara aims to become a world leader for multi-cultural activities.
