General overview

Thank you for reading our profile! We live in The Sustainable City in Dubai, UAE. We have been home exchanging for many years while living in Brooklyn, NYC and now that we are on the other side of the world we would love to carry on this amazing way of traveling. We are a family of 4 and have two 12 year old twins, who also love to travel. We are always up for a new exciting destination and making friends all around the world. We love to explore new places, but value the human connection in all our experiences the most. Message us!

The space

Our home (villa as they call it in Dubai) is in The Sustainable City about 20 minutes from downtown Dubai and 20 minutes to almost every activity that may interest anyone coming here. We have 4 large bedrooms (all 4 come with en suite bathroom with shower), a large open kitchen, a huge living room, garden with frangipani trees and outdoor seating area. The Sustainable City is a beautiful car-free city (village) with 3 pools (kiddie pool, recreational pool and swim pool), a gym, tennis courts, soccer field and a small communal square that houses many small shops, 4 restaurants, a pharmacy, cafe, food shop, spa, bakery and a few other cute shops. The community gets its energy from the solar panels and is built in a sustainable way. If you'd like to find out more, please search for it on youtube and watch one of many videos available.

Guest access

All bedrooms are on the first floor.

Notes

The Sustainable City is known to be "The Happiest Community' in the UAE. You will meet people who live here whether it's by the pool, jogging on the track or attending a community event. Take a ride to the beach, go up one of the tall buildings of Dubai, go for a fancy brunch or book a night at a desert camp and stare at the stars. There are so many activities to choose from, you will love your time in Dubai!

Neighbourhood

We are 20 minutes drive from almost every attraction, but you may want to stay a few days put and enjoy the restaurants (Mexican, Italian, Arabic, Thai) and the pools and just relax.

Getting around

You may want to rent a car or use Uber, which is also very affordable. We have four bikes to ride around the community or to the souk next door. There is a cycle rental place in our community if you'd like to try out the Al Qudra cycling track and its 86 km length riding through the desert.

Hi and thank you for reading our profile. We are a family of four: my husband, myself and 14 year old girl/boy twins. We LOVE to travel whenever school holidays allow. (Usually July/August and December). We live in the United Arab Emirates, Dubai at The Sustainable City, which we love. It is a community based on sustainability with all the amenities that you may need for your stay including a gym, 2 pools, playgrounds, a yoga studio, a food store, restaurants, a spa .. etc. The community is car-free and everyone walks, uses a golf cart, or cycles. We also have a house in southern Slovakia (about 40 minutes from Vienna) if you are interested more in that part of the world. We always look for non-simultaneous exchanges with New York City as we are long-term Brooklynites and love to return to see friends and family. We love exchanging homes and made friends doing so in the past and look forward to more adventures/friends with people like us :)
