Five-star hotels are a dime a dozen in a city like Dubai, but if you really want to experience the city like a local, then check out these unique Airbnb rentals that have it all: location, style, and a slice of personality.

article FOMSTOCK/UNSPLASH

When we think of Dubai, it’s hard not to imagine the towering skyscrapers, massive luxury malls, desert safaris, white-sand beaches, and let’s be honest, the abundance of five-star hotels for your staying pleasure. The renowned Arabian hospitality, mixed with luxury shopping experiences, beautiful beaches, and one-of-a-kind excursions, make Dubai the quintessential definition of a luxury holiday. 

However, as gorgeous and pampering as a luxury hotel stay is, sometimes, it’s nice to experience the city like a local. Or at least a local with a snatched space they rented from Airbnb. Here are the coolest Airbnbs in Dubai right now.

Stunning Villa With Private Beach

Location: The Palm

Be still our little holiday hearts. This palatial villa boasts four bedrooms, four and a half bathrooms, two gardens, a private pool, and a private beach out the back door. The home is beautifully designed, meaning no one is fighting for the best room because they're all good, and a seamless indoor/outdoor lifestyle. Even though you're five minutes away from the restaurants, nightlife, malls, and more of the city, it still feels like you're vacationing on some island in the Maldives. We may never leave.

Houseboat in Abu Dhabi

Location: Arabian Gulf

We know. It’s in Abu Dhabi. But it’s a houseboat, so technically, you could sail up the coast to Dubai.

It’s fitted with everything you need for a luxury stay and a roof terrace that will give you all the best views of that gorgeous skyline. Also, what could possibly be more Dubai than staying on a yacht?
