Next to Intercontinental Dubai Marina is the easiest way to get taxi drivers to know where you are-superb location- 10 minute walk to the beach and marina area - loads of shops and eating places - those wanting alcohol will have to find licensed premises as not readily available-generally hotels - Hilton Dubai is good- shop in apartment block Zoom(B3 floor) is a tad expensive but OK but there are a couple of others within a 5 minute radius that are better and cheaper-people who look after apartment for owner are superb and Julius who met and greeted us could not be more helpful and welcoming and is always on call-although personally we didnt need anything-apartment has all amneities you would need and even TV that has a good english speaking film channel if you fancy a night in...
This is the first time we have ever been to Dubai, so wanted to make the first time as great as we could. This started with reviewing apartments, and on paper Chris’s fitted the bill perfectly. And after dealing with Chris and his concierge team it was proven to be a really good decision. From the minute we booked to getting in to the taxi to return to the airport on the return home journey, eveything was brilliant. The apartment was exactly as Chris describes, fantastic location for Trams, Trains and the Beach, and only a short walk to the Marina Mall. Evelyn and Julius as part of the concierge team answered all our questions, were courteous and polite in all dealings. If you are looking for a great apartment, great location for the beach and the night life, then dont hesitate to book this apartment.
Cannot recommend highly enough.
Great location...easily walkable to Marina, JBR Walk..and The Beach. Apartment is ideal for a couple...pool has sun most of the day...also tram stop is very close...so easily accessible to metro/malls...
Have stayed a few times...and always my first choice when planning a return.
We had the pleasure to stay 2 weeks end of August 2017 in the studio of Chris. It is as beautiful and modern as shown on the pictures. Chris was very nice and gave us a lot of helpful information. He made our holidays so pleasant as possible with the late check-in/out, cleaning and change of the towels after one week. It was the perfect location for us, close to the tram, the beach and other facitilities. Dubai Marina is the place to be and a good starting point for all tours. The stop of the red sightseeing bus is located just a step away from the entrance of the building. These holidays will be unforgettable for us, also due to the proper accommodation. The only thing missing was wifi at the fitness center and the pool area.
This being my first(but not the last) time at Chris,s studio you are principally concerned about arrangements for entry and that all facilities are as advertised.
With Chris you are dealing with someone who appreciates this and responds to any questions immediately and everything is exactly as advertised.You are met on arrival and everything explained to you-a lovely touch with Chris,s rep Julius meeting you at the door of the building.Bring at least one functioning mobile with you and its easy from there when you confirm you are on your way from the Airport.
His studio is first class and is perfect for 2/3 people.All the basics are there and everything is user friendly including the washing machine.
There is direct access to the Marina Walk which is a highlight of your stay and as you return you can call in at the Zoom Supermarket which is very reasonable and has everything you want.
Nearby is the" WALK" AT JUMEIRAH BEACH).(10 MINUTES WALK)
which again is a most pleasant pedestrian friendly area and is home to some of the best evening theme nights with drinks included and either eligible for ENTERTAINER VOUCHERS OR IN SOME CASES GROUPON.
Dubai will be a building site for some time because it is rightly so popular and this can make it a bit difficult to walk around but this is a minor issue and certainly not a biggy around this studio.
The pool area is first class and well maintained and as there are no parasols Chris has provided these in the apartment-personally I wouldn't bother as there are always shaded areas if you want to get out the sun.
I will certainly be returning and Chris will be one of first people I consider.
Ideal location right in the heart of Dubai Marina and a short stroll to 'The Walk' and the beach. This area has plenty of restaurants and a great vibe. The Marina Tram is only 5 minutes from the front door, and a 15 minute walk will get you to the Dubai Metro, which will then take you to all the major sights in Dubai. The apartment was very clean and tidy and well equipped for our 10 days' stay. A handy 24 hour mini-supermarket was in the basement of the apartment building, and a large Waitrose supermarket was only a 15 minute walk away, located within the Marina Shopping Mall. Our host provided comprehensive information about the apartment and responded very quickly to any communication. Could not fault this accommodation and would certainly revisit. Would recommend!!
Wow, this apartment is amazing. Seamless check-in, even though we arrived a little early. The reception staff were very helpful. Consierge kept us informed as to when the room would be ready then came to collect us and let us know where everything was. the Apartment was very clean and is well equipped. The balcony overlooks the Marina on one side and you can see the beach on the other side. The pool is on the 2nd Floor and had the sub on from 8.30 until 4 and we were always able to get a couple of sunbeds. The location is perfect, 5 minute walk to The Walk with its restaurants and the beach. 2-3 minute walk to the Tram stop which is handy for the Marina Mall also with access to the Metro. It was really handy to have the shop in the basement for fresh bread etc. Chris kept in touch a few times during our stay which we thought was very nice.
We have already booked to go back and stay there in April!!
