Properties advertised as semi-furnished or partly furnished come with a few furnishings. In Qatar when a property is advertised as semi-furnished or partly furnished this usually means that there are some appliances in the kitchen and sometimes fitted air conditioning units or fitted wardrobes in the bedrooms. This type of home is useful for those not wishing to spend on large kitchen appliances or "white goods" as they are otherwise known. These are typically, items that are somewhat costly to buy and also may require maintenance or a warranty, so it is definitely an added convenience to have peace of mind knowing that if your kitchen appliances ever have a problem, they will be taken care of by the landlord. This convenience is factored in the monthly rental price and semi-furnished or partly furnished homes do cost more to rent, which is expected for the reasons explained.
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 Daayen is one of the fastest growing municipalities in Qatar. The north of Al Daayen shares its border with the Al Khor municipality and it is predominantly a rural and agricultural area with few settlements and several farms. The west is bordered with the Umm Salal municipality. The two main roads running through Al Daayen are the Al Shamal Road which passes vertically through the western part of the Al Daayen municipality and the Al Khor Coastal Road which runs through the central and eastern parts linking the cities of Doha and Al Khor.
The south of Al Daayen shares its border with the northern part of the Qatari capital. Due to its proximity with Doha, the southern region has been influenced greatly by the capital and this area has seen rapid development serving as the economic and residential hub of Al Daayen. The city of Lusail in particular is where most of this growth has been concentrated, offering some of the most modern and beautifully constructed homes available for rent or sale, perfect for families and couples alike. It is fast becoming a popular area to find new homes for rent in Qatar with various tastefully furnished compound villas and apartments available to move into immediately.
