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.
The Marina District is a precinct in the district of Lusail: the new SMART city of Qatar. The area acts as the lively hub of the city overlooking the various marinas and provides waterfront residential, mixed-use, commercial and hotel space with large open areas leading to the waterfront boardwalk. The Marina District is serviced by a light-rail transit network (Lusail Tram) that will connect to the rest of Lusail to the Doha Metro via Lusail and Legtaifiya stations on the Red Line; all linked directly to underground car parking facilities.
The residential offerings of the Marina District come in both apartment form and villa style housing. Without a doubt, the most iconic landmark in the new city of Lusail and possibly the whole of Qatar, is the Katara Towers: a 38-level construction whose design was inspired by the seal of Qatar, hosting a luxury 5* and 6* hotel as well as branded residential apartments. The crossed swords of the country's seal have been architecturally translated into twin arched towers that rise gracefully from the podium level, while the landscaped gardens and palm trees reflect in the ocean frontage. There are many homes available to rent and buy in Marina District.
