Russell and Marian's private bedroom and en suite bathroom private the perfect cozy and comfortable accommodations for a solo traveler in Dubai. The room comes well equipped with a twin bed, small desk, mini fridge, microwave and a hot plate with two kettles. Dishes, plates, silverware, mugs and glasses, along with a small dish tub and dish soap, are also available in the room. The complimentary tea bags, instant coffee and sugar are thoughtful touches. The closet offers plenty of space and there is a shelf in the bedroom to store toiletry items. The bathroom includes a stand-up shower with good water pressure.
Arabian Ranches is a beautiful, green community that caters to the city's large ex-pat community. A car or taxi (very inexpensive in Dubai) are the best ways to get around. A bus (F30), available by a 10-minute walk from the home, runs about every half hour and will take you to the Mall of the Emirates, where you can catch the Metro.
Russell and Marian are very friendly, outgoing and thoughtful hosts. They were always available for any questions I had or any help I needed. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting them and their terrific kids. I wish I had more time to stay with them!
