I can't help wondering if they are in a real mess if the price is that low, or if it is a true reflection of the rent prices.

It also bugs me when they put them on the wrong place on the map - it says it's in Springs 9 and shows as Springs 3 (? maybe) on the map. Am I just pernickity?

the expected rental income on them when they were first released was 55k, and people were over the moon to be getting that much. Just found a 2 bed on the palm, with a sea view, 1900 square feet, fully services by Fairmont Hotel group - 140k.

I know I feel the same but I have visited two villas in the last couple of weeks on the Springs and they were really nice, big gardens etc. I prefer Al Barsha though

I'm contemplating a move from AD to Dubai and you seem to be very clued up on the accomodation situation. Where is the best place for a family of 4 and a dog to live? Is there a decent compound in the Jumeirah area? Sorry to sound like such a but I have generally only been to Dubai for a night out with the lads......

The Meadows developments are really nice, especially Meadows 1 and 2, there are some great compounds in Al Barsha as well. Jumeirah prices are slowly coming down. Check out Dubizzle.com

Thanks. Is "The Meadows" in the Jumeirah area? What is "Jumeirah Islands" like?? Are most of the villas around that area of the stand-alone or gated community variety? Have you ever seen a grown man naked?
