About Wayne & Jackie

I'm Wayne and with my wife Jackie, have recently moved back to the UK after living in Dubai for many years.

We have kept our stunning, two storey, two bedroom penthouse apartment which is walking distance to the beach, ideally placed for exploring Dubai and has amazing views of Dubai Marina!

It is very well equipped, cable TV, fast wi fi, two showers, two baths and are looking forward to some equally luxurious and exciting travels using airbnb!

We travel with our 9 year old son Ollie and love sun, snow and water based activities.

You will love Dubai - ask us questions and we will make sure you enjoy every minute!

Wayne & Jackie purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Wayne & Jackie chose Dubai

Its amazing! Top floor (Penthouse) so no one clomping about above your head. The views are just breath-taking…. we loved it on entry and hope you do too.

Its a block from the beach, and 100's of shops and restaurants so no need for a car!

You'll have Cable TV, High speed wifi- plus your tablet into the TV and stream your stuff!!

A great JBL sound system to plug your MP3 player into and enjoy your tunes

What makes this apartment unique

Unlike almost every other apartment in Dubai Marina its a block from the beach, and 100's of shops and restaurants so no need for a car!

The property is lovely with a stunning marina view and is the perfect location right around the corner from the beach. The penthouse itself is exactly like the pictures and I would definately recommend a stay here.

Superb duplex penthouse apartment in Dubai Marina

  • 5 of 5

We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Wayne and Jackie's beautiful apartment in Dubai. The apartment was just as the photos portrayed. The apartment is of a very high standard, was spotlessly clean and we would certainly use again if we return to Dubai. It was close to both bus and metro links as well as several restaurants and supermarkets. Wayne promptly answered all queries and provided excellent information about Dubai. We would thoroughly recommend this penthouse. Thank you.

Appartamento accogliente in posizione strategica

  • 5 of 5

L'appartamento si trova al 9 e 10 piano (l'ultimo) della torre est di Marina Quay, un complesso residenziale molto bello a due passi dal mare. In 5 minuti a piedi si arriva alla spiaggia di Dubai Marina, lunga qualche chilometro e con uno splendido mare pulito. Lungo la spiaggia si trova una scelta ampissima di bar e ristoranti, mentre dall'altra parte del ponte sotto casa c'è un carrefour Market e il Marina Mall (con fermata della metro): la posizione è davvero strategica sia per visitare la città che per godersi la zona, molto bella e vivace. L'appartamento è ampio e dotato di ogni comfort, al piano superiore la camera padronale ha un bagno completo privato mentre la camera più piccola può usufruire del secondo bagno del piano. È disponibile anche il parcheggio nel seminterrato e una bella piscina.

Cozy apartment in stunning location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is on the 9th and 10th floor of a nice tower just opposite the Marina Mall (where there's a metro station on the airport/mall of the Emirates/Dubai mall line). It's perfectly located: walking 5 minutes to a beautiful beach, even less for a huge choice of bars and restaurants. A Carrefour market is on the other side of the bridge and it's very comfy for everyday needs. The apartment has a balcony with beautiful view on the Marina and it's well equipped, from the big kitchen to the 2,5 bathrooms - very useful if you're four. Parking is in the basement and the pool is a great alternative to the sea on lazy days. Wayne has always been very helpful, giving us all the informations needed and replying kindly and very fast: we definitely recommend it!

Where is the nearest beach?

From the apartment take the lift to Ground level. Exit the reception area and walk across the car park and out to the road. Cross the road and walk straight ahead passing Starbucks on the corner. Continue around 200m and North Beach will come into view just beyond the restaurants and cinema.

Are their beach/pool towels for me to use?

The towels provided are for use in the Penthouse only and are white and fluffy! You can hire towels on the daybeds and sun beds of The Walk or purchase beach towels as local supermarket sells a range from cheap to luxury.

Where is my nearest supermarket?

There are quite a few and you will develop a favorite. We use Carrefour.

From the apartment take the lift to Ground level. Exit the by the security gate turn left and cross the bridge over the Marina. At the end of the bridge double back on yourself dropping down under the bridge Carrefour supermarket is just on your right.

Waitrose in Dubai Marina Mall is bigger, better stocked and a touch more expensive. Just walk a little further than Carrefour and enter Marina Mall through or beside Carluccio’s restaurant. Waitrose is on the same level.

Where are the local Shopping Malls?

• Dubai Marina Mall – this can be seen from the balcony. It is a short walk over the marina bridge.

• The Walk - Same directions as to the beach

• Ibn Battuta – 10 mins by taxi/car

• Mall of the Emirates – our favorite including indoor skiing! - 15 mins by taxi/car

• Dubai Mall – Biggest in the world! - 25 mins by taxi/car

What do you recommend I do in Dubai?

Well… there are hundreds of attractions, here are just 40 of our favorites!!




What do you recommend I eat and drink in Dubai?

There really are hundreds of great places!

The best bars are listed on our Airbnb pages along with a couple of our favorite restaurants.

If you don't want to drive and why would you! Just walk 2 minutes onto The Walk and there are a staggering array of all food types, fine dining through to takeaway, Chinese through to Arabian, via Italian and Burger Joints.

Time Out is a great reference point so take a look
