A villa is a property/house that is usually set out over two or more floors. A standalone villa is defined as a villa that has boundary walls and stands on its own private land. It is not attached to any other building so it is detached, private and literally "stands alone". Standalone villas are not commonly found in Central Doha including most of the districts within the C-Ring Road as they mainly contain residential and office blocks. However, as you travel further out of Doha and beyond the C-Ring Road it become increasingly common to find standalone villas.
The amenities offered by standalone villas vary depending on the price, size and location. It is much more common to find a standalone villa with a private swimming pool in West Bay Lagoon than it is in Al Khor. Standalone villas are good for large families wanting their own private grounds or for companies looking to house their staff. It is quite common to see standalone villas advertised as suitable for bachelor accommodation. If you are specifically looking for a standalone villa, check the details advertised with the agent as sometimes compound villas are advertised as being standalone when they are in fact not standalone but instead the agent refers to the villa being detached from its neighbouring villa as such.
Simaisma also spelled Sumaysimah is a small seaside town and district in the municipality of Al Khor. It is located on the eastern coast of Doha and is about 30 kilometres north of the capital Doha. It is known for the historical buildings that can still be found from the pre-oil and gas days of Qatar. Other than the old houses and mosques that one can see, in recent years the local beach and closely located Al Simasima Family Park and Simaisma Olympic Park have been developed. They attract visitors from all over Qatar looking to spend a family day out. The district also benefits from a Resort with villas, restaurants and beautiful facilities.
Simaisma is connected to the main highway in the municipality through Simaisma Road, a 7 kilometre carriageway. There is no public transport in the town. The Simaisma Island Bridge is a 450-meter-long bridge connecting Simaisma's mainland to Simaisma Island. The district is mainly occupied by local residents and there are a few primary schools in the area which serve the local community. Older children continue their Secondary education in the district of Al Khor nearby.
