Accomodation in Abu Dhabi

J's picture
Earned points :6


I am from the UK and considering a job offer in Abu Dhabi. If I accept it, I would also be bringing my wife and two daughters with me (aged 4 & 2). I will have approx 120 - 180K per month to spend on accomodation. Ideally I would like a 3-4 bed apartment/house/villa.

Is this unrealistic?
Which areas of Abu Dhabi should I be looking at renting in? (ie which could I afford?)

Dubai is cheaper to live but how long does it take to drive from Dubai to Abu Dhabi? Is is too far to commute?

How hard is it to get my daughters into good British curriculum schools/nursery's?

Any info appreciated......

Hello there, do you mean 120 to 140k AED, or u mean 12 to 14?
A very good villa may cost you like 250k per year, near by Abu Dhabi, Dubai is becoming cheaper now, it will take you max 2 hours maybe less if you got a place in the start of Dubai, there are available british schools in Abu Dhabi so no worries.

I believe that my dreams will become true ONE DAY.....

Thanks for the info. I've found a few properties that i could afford in new sahama. Does anyone know anything about this area. I know that it is about 20-30 mins drive from central abu dhabi but i could live with that commute.
