Properties advertised as fully furnished come with most or even all the furnishings that one would typically require in their home. This includes all the large kitchen appliances like cooker, fridge-freezer, oven, microwave etc. Some properties even provide smaller kitchen appliances like a kettle and toaster etc. The bedrooms would have wardrobes, beds with mattresses, dressing tables etc. and the living areas would have furniture like sofas, dining table and chairs, television, etc. In some cases, fully-furnished homes are also dressed with wall hangings, frames, mirrors etc, so that the home is ready to move into with little else being required to start living in straight away. This is a great convenience for many, especially those who are staying for a limited time or their tenure here in Qatar has not yet been fixed and their long-term situation is unknown.
The monthly rental on fully furnished properties as would be expected is more than other options where some or no furnishings are included and once the cost of furniture is factored in, one could end up saving overall as there are no extra costs to include. Of course, there are many things one must take into account like the duration of the tenancy, the condition of the furniture and the difference in the monthly/annual rental price.
Sometimes properties are advertised as fully furnished but if one really likes the property and has their own furniture etc., it is possible to try and negotiate a reduction in the monthly rental with the landlord or real estate company. The greatest convenience is that with a fully furnished property, once the rental duration comes to an end, there is no furniture to worry about when moving out and it is a lot easier to relocate.
Onaiza is a district in the north-east of the municipality of Doha which spans two zones of Qatar (zones 63 and 65). It is located between Al Dafna, Qatar's emerging central business district, and Lusail, a development north of Doha which is set to become the second largest city of Qatar in the near future. The district was mostly developed in the late 1990s and early 2000s as a result of its proximity to Doha's new business district and its relative distance from the more congested centre of the city. The area is known as Doha's new "foreign embassy district" and there are over 15 embassies located in the district.
The district has very good road links. Along the east and north edges of the district run Omar Al Mukhtar Street on which two Metro stations, West Bay QIC and DECC both on the Red Line are located. Al Jamia Street also known as "University Street" runs along the west edge and leads to Qatar University, Al Markhiya Street runs along the south edge of the district and Al Istiqbal Street which cuts right through Onaiza later on becomes the Lusail expressway as it crosses Omar Al Mukhtar Street on the north edge of Onaiza. The homes to rent in Onaiza are mainly apartments although there are also many large standalone luxurious villas available too.
