Destination guide

Discover dazzling Dubai with luxury holiday lets

Insanely glamorous one minute and zealously traditional the next, Dubai is a multifaceted city where you can shop at luxury malls, scale ultra-modern skyscrapers and discover Bedouin culture, all in the same day. Whether you're travelling for business, pleasure or a bit of both, Dubai holiday rentals offer a unique chance to experience the city through a local lens.


Dive into Emirati history with Dubai holiday rentals

Step back in time in the Al Fahidi Historical District, an enchanting neighbourhood that feels worlds away from Dubai's gleaming skyscrapers and artificial islands. Today, its traditional Persian buildings house a mix of cultural museums, courtyard teahouses and handicraft stores. After a day spent soaking up Emirati culture, cool off with a dip in your Dubai holiday rentals pool.
