Umm Al Quwain, commonly known UAQ is a small northern emirate in the UAE just a stone’s throw away from Ras Al Khaimah. Out of the 7 emirates that make up the UAE, it has the smallest population and covers only 750 square kilometres in total. It makes UAQ a unique place to call home because it’s far enough from the hubbub of busier parts of the country but close enough so that you never feel isolated.
UAQ presents the sort of lifestyle that makes excellent use of its coastline and greener areas to the more inland parts that are closer to the desert. It makes for a very diverse setting no matter where you choose to live in Umm Al Quwain.
In UAQ at present, you’ll find a wide range of villas for rent in Umm Al Quwain Marina and the Mistral Villas development. These villas are large and spacious and available in 3 or 4 bedroom varieties. Mistral Villas and the development in Umm Al Quwain Marina is a master residential project by Emaar which will provide excellent waterfront living and comprehensive amenities for the community that will eventually call this place home.
The government of Umm Al Quwain has established the UAQ Free Trade Zone to draw in investment and business. One of the aims is to showcase UAQ as a place to live and settle down as well as an active place to conduct business.
With Emaar’s input this has proven to be quite a drawcard and the number of people choosing to rent a villa in Umm Al Quwain grows each month. There’s the exciting Dreamland Aquapark to visit and a number of museums and historical sites too which add to UAQ’s tourist attractions.
In comparison with other parts of the UAW, renting a villa in UAQ is relatively more affordable and with the robust highways linking each emirate, getting around the country is easy, in particular for shopping outings which would involve trips to the large malls of Dubai and Abu Dhabi, for example.
With all new tenancies in UAQ, they need to be registered with the UAQ Municipality so that there is an official record of your rental contract. Despite growing demand, rents in UAQ have been steady without any dramatic jumps in prices.
As the emirate grows in popularity and the prospect of renting a villa in Umm Al Quwain pulls in more interested parties, so too does the development of retail and dining options for residents. If the current growth trends are anything to go by, one can expect vacancies for rental villas in UAQ to not last very long.
