Things to know about Villa rentals in Abu Dhabi 

The largest and most populated emirate in the county, Abu Dhabi is made up of over 200 islands and has a lot to offer, from unique infrastructure to breathtaking natural sights. Home to iconic landmarks such as the Louvre, Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, Yas Islands and Ferrari World, the emirate is a charming place to live in. 

Over the last year, property prices in Abu Dhabi have become increasingly attractive, and more people are looking to upgrade from apartments to villas. With good reason! There is something alluring about living in a villa that an apartment often doesn’t match up to – the privacy, extra space, communities and the overall vibe of having a house you can call home. 

Like anywhere else in the world, finding a house for rent in Abu Dhabi would need some research and time. The real estate market in the city is quite diverse, with a plethora of villa communities, ranging from luxurious to affordable rental villas, and even those with easy payment plans.  

What is the rental process? 

Once you have conducted extensive research, shortlisted a house, visited the property and are satisfied with your choice, the next step would be to sign a rental agreement with the landlord. Often, there will be an agent involved to help you through this process, however, in some cases, you can seal the deal with the property owner directly.  

The rental contracts differ from every landlord. Usually, they are signed on a long term basis (most commonly annually), but there can also be short term rental options for those who aren't planning to live in the city for an extended period of time or are not yet ready to take the jump of committing to a long term contract.   

For those who intend on staying in Abu Dhabi for the long term and want to work towards buying a home without breaking the bank, the best option for them is ‘rent to own’. Rent to own schemes have been gaining popularity in the past years where you can eventually own your own house by paying the developer a fixed amount over a previously agreed timeframe which will go towards you owning the home in the long term. This saves you having to pay rent to your landlord every month, with the money going towards buying your own home, which makes for easy payment.  While this approach requires a down payment, it is usually less than that of a mortgage where the downpayment amounts to at least 30% of the value of the property upfront.

Is renting a villa in Abu Dhabi affordable? 

The cost of a villa for rent in Abu Dhabi can differ depending on what you’re looking for. Fully furnished luxury properties that are ready to move into can tend to be on the more expensive side however there are cheaper rental options for those who are looking for an affordable house as well. Make sure to familiarize yourself with the prices of properties in and around the location or community you’re eyeing and attempt bargaining with the landlord to ensure that you secure the best prices.

What are the best places to get a house for rent in Abu Dhabi?  
  
Finding an ideal location is extremely vital while finding a new house, and completely depends on your preference. Being a diverse city, Abu Dhabi caters to a variety of different needs. One of the most popular options for those looking for family and pocket-friendly communities is Khalifa City A. As one of the most affordable neighbourhoods in the Emirate, the spacious and attractive villas are only a part of the appeal. This apartment and villa community has several enticing amenities within reach, including schools, hospitals, supermarkets, parks, malls, and a gorgeous golf court.  

Another highly rated family-friendly community in Abu Dhabi is Al Reef. Stunning and affordable 2 to 5- bedroom villas are located in the sub-community of Al Reef Village. The area lies on the outskirts of the city with only a 10-minute drive to the Abu Dhabi International Airport. Though there is a bit of a drive to the city, the community is located right off the highway to Dubai which makes it the perfect place for people who regularly commute between the emirates. 

If you have an appreciation for art, culture, some of the finer things in life, and are looking for a community in Abu Dhabi to mimic that, the cultural capital of the emirate is a perfect place for you to rent out a villa. The gorgeous Saadiyat Island is home to the Louvre and upcoming iconic artistic places like the Zayed National Museum, Guggenheim and the Performing Arts Centre. The picturesque island which is surrounded by ethereal mangroves and azure blue waters is a hotspot for investors looking for luxurious, exclusive and upscale waterfront properties in the emirate. Though the prices of villas in Saadiyat Island are on the higher end, the luxurious Rivera living jam-packed with fine arts and culture island make it well worth the hefty price tag.  

Another Abu Dhabi island community, Yas Island, offers an exceptional luxury lifestyle with its selection of gorgeously designed residential properties. With several upcoming villa projects, Yas Island is perfect for those who are looking to invest in properties in Abu Dhabi. With a slew of attractions including but not limited to Warner Bros World, Yas Waterworld, Yas Marina Ferrari World, the home of the world’s fastest roller coaster, F1 track and the Du Area, which hosts chart breaking artists from all around the world, Yas Island is the perfect place to live for adrenaline junkies and people who love the cosmopolitan life. In terms of properties, those interested in moving to Yas Island will be happy to know there is a blend of affordable and high-end properties for rent and sale with an array of amenities.
