Hi all... Me and husband with a daughter just reached qatar few days ago.. Have contacted agents but no news at all.. Viewed some compound but is extremely big for three of us... :( Can anyone PLEASE help me find a 2-3 bed compound villa? Budget 12,000 at semi-furnished condition. In al sadd, al Saab, al markhiya, al gharafa or any area... Husband is working nearby Al Dafna area.. If anyone knows of any villas on their compound which are empty, I would be very grateful for any contacts and help ? Many thanks for any help or advice <em>edited by sharename on 29/09/2014</em>

Thea 117, I'm not sure if info read are true, below are some feedback from others: 1) poor quality, mold grows elsewhere... 2) piping problem 3) management problem I yet to reach doha, so hard to comment much.. Need other's info so I could survey the house end of month.. If your budget is stretchable, u can get very nice fully furnished apartment in west bay... Would appreciate if you could share more info about gharrafa area after viewing..

Mzee123, thanks for details ?? yes, I have mentally prepared for the school registration after viewing some reputable schools have closed the waiting list application... I plan for semi-furnished house/apartment as husband's company provides the container, so we plan to ship everything from own country to doha, try to minimize the cost of living... 14k is out of our budget.. ? and I thought 4 rooms villa will be too huge for me since only two of adults with 3 yrs old daughter.. I'm kinda worry all the houseworks in a big house.. And would prefer smaller house with spacious kitchen for me... Definitely will visit your villa to have a real idea... Feeling anxious as this is 1st time stay away far from country... Worry to get culture shock in food, climate and etc .. Although have grabbed lot of info and experiences from others in website.. Haha...

I reside in a villa in gharrafa grand compound which is 5 minutes away from ACS school... there seems to be few vacant villas here... its a compound with 30 villas with a clubhouse..( pool,gym and all)...I think it is to the mark u have mentioned..if u have an agent try him to show u this villa since I have no clue how it works...oh and it's fully furnishef edited by mzee123 on 07/08/2014 Hi all... Thankful that I found this topic here... me and HB with 3 yr old daughter will move to Qatar end of this month.. Hv got some info from internet but still kinda worry bout education and house... Appreciate if anyone of you give us valuable info to confident me.. :) Mzee123, Compound you stay is named "gharaffa grand compound" and still available? How many rooms of villa is it and mind to share average rental for the compound? Pls share with me more info about your compound.. I'm still considering between apartment or villa since I just want semi-furnished 2 BD/3BD accommodation with storage.. I do not prefer big house but big kitchen is a must... ?? I plan to register my daughter to Compass school, so I guess al gharrafa will be the right place for me.. Doha college and DESS is closed for registration, I think I hv no much choices... If possible, I prefer British curriculum.. Anymore good suggestion for the school?
