About the Homestay
We are a family of four that live in Al Ain, UAE (father - NZ, mother Japan). We love playing sports and are members of the Al Ain Equestrian Golf Rugby Shooting Club, Wadi Adventure and other outdoor pursuits. Al Ain is about half way between Dubai and Abu Dhabi. It is near the mountains and the desert. It is the home of the founding father of the UAE where you can visit many traditional and modern Emirati cultural sites. Al Ain is a great get away place from all the hustle and bustle of Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
We live in a partially enclosed complex that is brand new. It feels very secure and with a lovely family atmosphere. We are only 15 minutes by bus from the city centre, Al Ain Mall and the bus centre.
You will have a lovely studio apartment with your own ensuite of toilet, shower and bath. The studio is fully furnished to suit couples, a tv, internet, own fridge and microwave. Shower and toilet is there too (ofcourse).
A cleaner will come 2 hours a week to clean the apartment.
If you want hosting and guiding (sight seeing, restaurants, shopping malls etc) we can provide that too.
