This is an older, more established area, quite beautiful in places and even peaceful once you get off the beaten track that is Jumeirah Beach Road. It is home to expatriates and Emiratis living side by side on well-maintained streets. The regular call to prayer is part of the Arabic ambiance and a daily reminder that you're living in the Middle East.
The properties in Umm Suqeim are almost all ‘free standing’ villas, in other words not in gated communities or compounds. They range in size from small one bedroom houses to larger five or six bedroom villas. Since there is no space for further development properties tend to be rented quickly in this popular beachside district.
The houses and villas on one side of the beach road are as close as you can get to the beach in Dubai, while on the other they’re as green as you can get in Dubai, with well established gardens and green parks.
Properties in Umm Suqeim may only be sold to GCC citizens, so renting is the only option for expats.
