"We have been in this villa for ten years now and we have a lot of good memories here, such as our boys being born. In 2003, we were among one of the first residents in Emirates Hills and even in its infancy it ticked a lot of the right boxes. Now we feel nearer the city and Emirates Hills has really grown into a lovely community where everything we need is nearby. It is very convenient for us, with my offices in JLT and the kids’ schools nearby. We like it here for that sense of comfort and neighbourly spirit."
