Renting an Apartment in Abu Dhabi: For The Different Stages
Abu Dhabi has amazing properties, and it's a calmer city with a rich history, beautiful architecture, and enriching museums to visit, among other things. But like in any big city, looking for an apartment can be a struggle. Abu Dhabi has lots of wonderful properties to offer, which is a great thing, but it can make the search for the perfect apartment an overwhelming process.
When looking to rent an apartment in Abu Dhabi, it's important to consider your needs. Not only building amenities but also considering your life stage. No matter what stage in your life you're in, renting an apartment is a long-term commitment that will affect your life.
The Young Professional
A single professional can suffice with a studio or 1 bedroom apartment. If you're looking to hustle and explore the city, an affordable yet high-quality apartment will do you well. If you want to settle in Abu Dhabi long-term, a smaller apartment will be a good starting point. Call it the beginner's flat, less space is more, and you can gather the best furniture for your current needs.
If you're not working hybrid or remotely, find something close to your job to reduce commuting time. Don't worry too much about it, as the commute in Abu Dhabi is smooth. It won't be a massive hassle to get from home to work and back.
For a 1 bedroom apartment, look no further than The Bridges on Reem Island. This island right off the mainland is well connected, so you won't need to worry about getting to a supermarket, mall or otherwise since there's plenty to do on the island alone. The Bridges also has a gym, pool, and a gorgeous canal promenade (for the most ideal romantic dates), among other things.
On top of that, The Bridges is a 6-building complex at the heart of a cosmopolitan community. You're sure to meet someone from work or build your group here. Think of building a home, not a place to stay, so you're well prepared for the next life stage.
The Newly Married
Whether or not you need a home office, it's important to make your home a comfortable place where you can begin building your life together. Speaking of space, it's important to have enough of it for each person to discover your interior design tastes in peace. Not only that, but for the little ball of fur (your beloved cat, dog, or any other pet) to comfortably roam around in.
Make sure to find an apartment in the city's centre, so you can access work, shops, and restaurants seamlessly. What is renting an apartment in Abu Dhabi if you can't be a skip and a hop away from incredible landmarks?
This 2-bedroom apartment at Eastern Mangroves is a comfortable spot with a beautiful view. You can find plenty of spacious and bright apartments that overlook the Marina. The design and colours also take inspiration from the desert and sea, resulting in a darling interior that works with all sorts of interior design visions. You'll also be a stone's throw away from a retail centre and the popular Eastern Mangroves national park - a beautiful destination for any couple.
Being newly married comes with its stresses and pressures. With a well-run, beautifully decorated, and spacious home, many of your problems will float away.
The Growing Family
Explore a 2- or 3-bedroom apartment; you and your partner will still have space to thrive, and so will your child(ren). All family members must decompress from a long day of parenting, work, school, and other activities. After taking a breath and resting, you can gather in the living room or kitchen for much-needed quality time - like a movie or game night.
As your child grows, it's important to consider how the home will need to adapt to their needs. You can convert the 2nd or 3rd bedroom from a nursery into a kid's bedroom, a teenager's bedroom, and onwards for their future. If you only plan on having one child and a 3-bedroom apartment, the extra bedroom can be reserved for guests, an office, a playroom, and more.
Find an apartment that's either close to or reduces the commute to your kid's schools, afterschool activities, and more. Abu Dhabi is easy to navigate, and you'll be close to numerous malls, parks, and fun spots alongside your kid's school. Make sure to find an apartment building with a playground, pool, and more. You can arrange a playdate in a safe and comfortable environment for the younger ones and their friends.
This 3 bedroom apartment at The Gate Towers at Al Reem Island is a fantastic place for your kids to run around and is also especially safe. You and your family are guaranteed high-quality living in a beautiful property with great features and a budding community close to Carrefour, Al Fay Park, and more.
