Beat the heat with chilled pools

Moving house, mamas? Having a chilled pool to dip into is definitely something to consider! Our Sassy property expert Harry shares some of the best available villas on compounds with cool pools.

When you visit Arabian Ranches and the newer developments, all of the communal pools have chillers which are vital for those trying to beat the summer heat. There are many compound dwellers who have a pool that they really enjoy for much of the year but for whom these pools are like  hot baths when you really need them most. There are still a few very hot months of this year left so whether you’re looking to move soon or if you know that next summer you’ll need to keep your kids busy and comfortable during the summer, a spot of cool swimming might just take some of the pressure off!


Firstly in Al Manara there is this smart compound where the villas have four bedrooms upstairs and a lovely open plan format downstairs. This is a super family villa and in great condition. You could secure this villa with rent of AED 290,000. The pool is temperature controlled and there’s a decent gym too! To have a look visit 

Staying in Al Manara we love this compound. Here you get a four bedroom villa which has it’s own private garden and a central pool which is again temperature controlled. The landlord here is excellent and the villa is light and spacious. The villa can be rented for AED 240,000 and more details are here


A short drive down the road to Jumeirah 3 and these lovely five bedroom villas. This compound has a tennis court, swimming pool and a gym. The villas are well maintained and are designed to be naturally cool in summer months. The landlord here is looking for rent of AED 270,000 and you can see more here


You can live in a villa with a chilled pool just off the Al Wasl Road and villas start from AED 170,000. These three bedroom villas are well maintained and you can pay in four cheques (yay!).

In Jumeirah 3 this modern compound villa has a lovely chilled pool and a gym. The villa itself is nice and open plan with loads of storage. There are four bedrooms upstairs and a family room and is great value at AED 230,000 a year. psst… it’s a short walk to the beach too. 


Moving to Jumeirah 1 there are some super compounds and one we particularly like is this one where you can get a four bedroom villa for AED 220,000. We love the sliding doors in the main room which effectively open up the house to the outdoors. The pool is stunning and maintains a lovely temperature. 


So we’ve given you six options to consider – and next summer you might find that you have a more pleasurable swim! If you want any further advice, why not contact us?
