Short term rentals in Dubai are gaining popularity. If you’re travelling with your family, a short stay is a great way to get more bang for your buck as it will almost always offer more living space at a lower price than a hotel suite. If you’re a tourist who wants to experience life like a local on your trip to Dubai, short term rentals in Dubai help you do just that.

There’s no better time than the present to check out the perfect short term rentals in Dubai. So, ditch the hotel and pick the right vacation rental in Dubai. Here are few points to keep in mind while doing so to make sure there are no hidden costs or surprises when you arrive.

Use reputable websites.

An online search is an easy way to start browsing Dubai property and short term rentals in Dubai, but a huge challenge with searching online is that on some sites, it can be difficult to determine if the Dubai property that’s listed is actually the real vacation home. This is where sites such as ours – bhomes.com – come into play. We allow agents to provide details and photos of the holiday homes and have checks in place to ensure that the Dubai property rental you’re looking at is legit.

Consider location and transportation.

Will you be relying on public transportation during your stay? In a city like Dubai, the tram and metro are the easiest ways to get around, so pick a rental that’s within walking distance of either of these stations.

Do research on travel times to the places you want to visit and search for directions from the potential rental to the sites. Get a vacation home that is central to most of the sites you want to see. Even if you’re hiring a rental car during the period of your stay, we think you should still consider travel time to the places you’ll be going.

Make sure you know exactly what amenities are included.

Is there a washer and dryer? Does the short stay have a pool? Does the Dubai property rental include housekeeping?

Know all the costs involved.

An important point to consider when you are deciding on a rental home is the price, as there may be other fees to keep in mind that might add to the total cost. Does the short stay come with a cleaning fee? How about utility charges such as electricity and water? Would you have to pay extra for amenities such as pools, barbecue areas and game rooms? There may also be deposits involved so make sure you fully understand all the costs associated with the booking. Short term rentals in Dubai make traveling with friends and family a lot more fun than a standard hotel suite. Plus, access to a full kitchen makes packing meals a cinch and lets you dine in as often as you’d like – great for saving money as well!
