There’s nothing quite like living in Dubai Marina. With its stunning sky-high apartment towers overlooking an extraordinary view, it is one of the most sought-after areas for renting an apartment in Dubai. It offers a range of serviced, furnished or unfurnished studios, 1-bedroom, 2 bed-room to up to 5 bedroom apartments, all with easy access to business centres like Media City, Business Bay, Jebel Ali and JLT. Renting an apartment in Dubai Marina also means living in a community rich with places to stroll, eat, and shop. It’s one of Dubai’s most popular renting locations especially among young working professionals in the Western expat community.
Accessibility and Commute Times to/from Dubai Marina - Not only is Dubai Marina one of the most breathtaking areas of the city, but it’s also one of the most convenient locations. The Dubai Tram quickly connects the Marina to JBR, JLT, Palm Jumeirah, Media City and Knowledge Village while Damac Properties, the marina’s metro station, connects it with greater Dubai. By car, Dubai Marina is just a 25-minute drive to the airport and a 15-minute drive downtown. Its skyscraper views are parallel only with those of Downtown Dubai but for anyone with a penchant for being near the water and the beach, renting in Dubai Marina is a must.
Apartments in Dubai Marina- In-demand high-end towers with rentals along the Marina include Princess Tower, The Torch and the Emaar 6 towers. More affordable rentals can be found in the Diamond Towers (Diamonds 1 – Diamond 6). Apartments for rent in Dubai Marina include studios, 1-bedroom, 2-bedroom, 3-bedroom and larger units.
Lifestyle and Community in Dubai Marina - The marina offers a good split between daytime activities and an active nightlife and so the type of people drawn to living there are a mix of different nationalities. Marina Walk is one of the city’s biggest tourist destinations, a 7km pedestrian trail that runs through the entire marina, lined with cafes and restaurants overlooking the water. The famous Dhow cruises for a night of dinner and music on the water are a hit for tourists and residents alike. Couple that with being in such close vicinity to the cafes, shopping outlets and restaurants in Dubai Marina Mall, Pier 7 (a tower of gourmet restaurants) and JBR The Beach and you start to understand the stereotype that Marina residents seldom leave the man-made canal city. Once the sun goes down, living in Dubai Marina puts famous nightlife venues like The Buddha Bar, Barasti and Zero Gravity on your doorstep. Don’t let the plethora of nightlife destinations fool you, renting a property in Dubai Marina is an excellent choice for families as well. There’s no shortage of kid-friendly cafes and restaurants on Marina Walk and nurseries like Dubai Marina Nursery, Willow Nursery and Toddler Town - all accessible by foot.
Added Value in Dubai Marina - Service charges in Dubai are a big factor when deciding where to rent in Dubai Marina. All the towers have independent developers, so maintenance fees do vary from building to building but despite being one of Dubai’s high-end areas to rent, Dubai Marina services charges average out at mid-level in respect to the entire emirate. The Emaar six towers offer some of the lowest at a current rate of AED13 per square feet.
