We had a wonderful time at Xanadu and would all love to stay there again. Hanish is a fantastic addition to the Villa and made it especially enjoyable. He could not have been more helpful and knowledgable. The owner is also very obliging. We hope to be back.

Unser Urlaub in der Villa Xanadu war einmal mehr unglaublich schön. 11 Freunde haben sich dort sehr wohl gefühlt und wir wurden von Hanish und Rachel hervorragend betreut. Für uns war es bereits der 2. Aufenthalt in der Villa Xanadu und wir werden nächstes Jahr auch wieder dorthin zurückkehren. Danke auch an Kevin für die Gastfreundschaft. Our holiday at Villa Xanadu was incredibly beautiful once more. 11 friends have felt very comfortable there and we were looked after superbly by Hanish and Rachel. For us it was already the 2nd stay at Villa Xanadu and we will return there next year. Thanks also to Kevin for their hospitality.

Just go there, went with a big group, Kevin & Hanish couldnt of been more helpful, couldnt recommend more
Stayed Sunday 07 September 2014 with Friends
A group of 7 of us stayed at Xanadu and unanimously highly recommend it. Located in a great area with fantastic facilities ranging from kayaks, allowing us to take a sunset paddle, to an adequately sized temperature controlled pool. The villa itself is spacious, very clean and is a great place to relax. We made use of the BBQ and Hanish (the house manager) was great in providing transport to various Malls etc. We found the pool table and bar to be a particularly useful addition with VERY reasonable bar prices. Overall, and idea place for large groups to stay and we would come back again.

A truly stunning villa and a lovely holiday enjoyed by all. Very large villa with excellent facilities and a very quiet location, which added to the experience. Beach was deserted most of the time. Staff were very helpful and accommodating to our requirements at all times. Highly recommended. Lynne Lockley and family
Stayed Friday 21 February 2014 with Friends
We had an absolutely fantastic holiday and can throughly recommend this. Hanish and Fatima does a very good job to make guests happy. It is a house and surroundings to be experienced. If we want to point out a very little thing we hope there are sunbeds and wine glasses for all 10 when we come back next year? :-) Regards 10 very happy Norwegians
Owner reply:

Thank you for the recommendation. Whilst there were 8 sunbeds at the pool there were also a further 4 sunbeds in the pool store, which is always accessible. Similarly, the kitchen has a small number of wine glasses, but the bar has a further dozen wine glasses. Next time you may enjoy a glass or glasses of wine on me! Welcome back.....Kevin

Xanadu is a truly stunning beach villa. Nicely furnished and very comfortable. We hired it for a celebration and we had the most amazing weekend there. In fact we didnt want to leave ! Thank you to Kevin and his staff - Fantastic !
Stayed Sunday 24 March 2013
We had an absolutely fantastic holiday. The villa is spacious, well kept and decorated. Hanish and Fatima are extremely accommodating and helpful. We used Hanish a lot to drive us around and he was fun, charming and informative. I would recommend Xanadu completely. The only downside was the building work on the next frond, but I think that is going on all over Dubai!

Stayed Wednesday 05 October 2011
Wir waren im Oktober 2011 zu Gast in dieser wunderschönen Villa. Die Zimmer ein Traum. Jeder hatte genug Platz für sich. Insgesamt waren wir 6 Erwachsene und 6 Kinder. Die Ausstattung absolut perfekt, mit TV, Laptop, freies Internet über WLAN, liess keine Wünsche offen. Der Ausblick wunderschön, direkt auf das Hotel Atlantis. Leider war das Meerwasser etwas zu warm. Vorischt Quallengefahr. Das Frühstück leider ohne Eier ( gekochte, Rühr oder Spiegeleier ) , mussten wir uns selber machen. Anstonsten alles, was das Herz begehrt. Jeden Tag mit dem Fahrer ( max. Platz für 7 Personen ) + ein eigenes Auto unterwegs gewesen. Fahrer und Haushälterin sehr sehr freundlich. Vorsicht nur bei längeren Fahrten ( weiter als Mall of Emirates ) immer den Fahrer fragen, was es extra kostet. Nicht die Welt aber auch nicht umsonst. Aufgrund der hohen Aussentemperaturen, baten wir darum, den Pool zu kühlen. Es ist genial aber es kostet zusätzlich 115,00 Dirham ( ca 25,00 Euro ) pro Tag. Ausreichend ist eine Kühlung alle 3-4 Tage. Ich kann jedem empfehlen dort seinen Urlaub zu verbringen, dabei aber auf Kleinigkeiten zu achten. Bei Vollbelegung ( 12 Personen ) ist der Preis dann auch nicht die Welt. Eine unserer schönsten Reisen. Ich kann die Villa nur weiterempfehlen.

Great Villa with great view, It is better than the pictures, we all loved it and will come again. just be aware that the breakfast is not an option, you have to pay for it, the jacussi in the main bedroom was not working. but everything is great, Hanish the driver and Fatima the maid was very helpful and so kind.
Owner reply:

Breakfast is an extra as shown on the booking form before you confirm your booking. The jacuzzi is working but the safety switch outside the bathroom must be turned to the "ON" position.

WOW.....I hired the Villa to celebrate my 40th Birthday in mid Jan 2010 and what a fantastic place it was. It exceeded all expectations and my friends and family (a party of 11 in total) had a great time. Hanish (driver) & Preetha (housekeeper) gave a very professional, courteous and friendly service meeting all of our needs. Everything with the villa was great and would thoroughly reccommend it to anyone wishing for a stress free week in a well appointed and luxury villa. Id love to return at some stage in the future.
Stayed Tuesday 01 December 2009
Best Villa we have ever stayed in. Will be going back next year. Hanish and Preetha were excellent and helped to make our stay enjoyable. The facilities in the villa were outstanding.

This villa is 5 star. the pictures do not do it justice and hanish and preetha could not be more helpful. they made our stay so much more enjoyable. The location is excellent and the view from the villa of the new Atlantis hotel at night is quite stunning.I would recommend this villa and look to go back soon.
Stayed Wednesday 30 July 2008
We were very well looked after by the house keeper and driver, they both had lots of local knowledge and nothing was too much trouble for them. The house was kept very clean and had everything that we needed for our holiday. We were made to feel very welcome.
Stayed Saturday 01 March 2008
Xanadu is a beautiful house in an excellent location on Frond F of the Palm Jumeirah, we were a family of five staying at the house for a week in March. We had a fantastic time and would love to return in the future. Hanish in particular was very helpful and hardworking, going out of his way to ensure that our stay was perfect. (the only very, very small request would be to consider heating the pool during the winter months) All in all though this was by far the best villa rental we have experienced.
Owner reply:

Monica, I have considered your request and am delighted to advise you that I am having a heat pump installed in the pool .Kevin

We found that the property in excellent condition and were looked afer very well the only issue that we had was that two of teh kids oicked up an ear infection from the pool.
Owner reply:

The pool is cleaned and water chemically tested twice weekly. It is most probable that the children got the infection from playing in the sea.

Stayed Sunday 16 July 2006
Good location and amenities for our group of 8 adults and 4 children. Good breakfast, knowledgable and helpful staff, we would definitely consider rebooking as it had everything we needed. Cannot think of a minus. We all loved it.
Stayed Sunday 16 July 2006
Great staff who took care of every need and made our stay enjoyable. The villa is Dubais best location and offers lovely view to Atlantis Hotel. We will come back again.
What a fantastic villa, perfect location & perfect weather. We all had a fabulous time at Xanadu, We had the whole beach to ourselves which the kids adored, and the swimming pool was as warm as a bath. We adore Dubai & will defiantly be returning. Would like to thank Hanish & Fatima for all there help & for making us feel at home. Thanks again, love all the Winghams xxxxxx
My Familys stay was greatly enhanced by the excellent service we received from Hanish & Fatimah.
Excellent stay during xmas. Outstanding villa with very nice people (Hanish and Fatimah).
We were well looked after by Fatimah and Hannish.They kept thepropert immaculate and were always there when we needed something but were never noticed at any other time. I would highly recommend the property and my family want to go back soon. In fact they didnt want to leave. Professional service Kevin and fantastic house keeping Hannish and Fatimah.
Fantastic location - great for a family holiday
brilliant location, clean and very polite staff. had a very good holiday.
The photos do not do it justice. We are utterly amazed at the size of the villa. The staff were excellent and couldnt do enough for you. I would give this villa the highest rating
The property was first class and Preeta and Hanish looked after us "royaly". We enjoyed every minute and will definately be returning in the near future. Many thanks John
Villa Xanadu was an amazing place to spend a vacation. It had everything we needed, including first-class service from the housekeeper. The driver was on his own holiday while we were there, but the housekeeper was able to drive us sometimes. We loved the privacy of the en-suite bedrooms and the terrace off the master bath. The location was quiet but yet close enough for a short drive into town when needed. We used the kayaks and the grill and took numerous walks on the beach although the pool was too cold to use while we were there. I would recommend Xanadu and stay there again if we ever return.
Owner reply:

Thank you. We have now had a pool heater installed.

The villa is stunning. We got picked up late, the villa wasnt clean, no downturn or proper cleaning. As we were only 3 staying in the villa I think we were just an inconvenience and felt as though we were staying as guests in the keepers house. We had to ask for the water to be filled up etc and when our flight was delayed we asked if we could stay a few hours more only to be told no because they had to clean ready for the next guests. As it was our honeymoon we really were upset, we loved the villa but it was so unclean I took pictures. The pool was freezing too. Would only recommend if the cleaner was changed, the driver was fine and if the pool was heated.
Owner reply:

This review was submitted almost one year AFTER the guest stayed in Xanadu. I do not understand the malicious content as the guest never mentioned any of these "problems" to me or my staff either during or after their stay. I could take this review down, but what good would reviews be if I only allowed the good ones to be published. I have subsequently had a pool heater installed. Please read the other reviews for a more accurate assessment.

My family and friends had a great time at Xanadu in March.We all felt at home at the villa and the help we had with the driver was really handy. i wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property and we are definitely looking to return in the new year ! Thanks !!
Owner reply:

Gareth,I see you are true to your word and have booked 10 days in April 2009. Thanks, Kevin

We rented this villa out in May and it was total out of this world. The location was excellent as everything was just a few mins drive away. The staff in the house where always on hand if we needed anything they couldnt do enough for us. They treated us like royality so anybody who wants to be treated like kings and queens for a couple of weeks i would recommend this villa to yous. The nightlife in Dubai is excellent and i would recommend club zinc to anyone going to Dubai. The pictures on this web site dont do this villa justice as there is alot more to the villa than you see.. I cant wait to return here as we liked been treated like royality and this villa and staff do this... A big thank you to the owner for given us this chance to experience like this......
I would like to take the opportunity to say what a marvelous week our family had at the Signature Beach Villa, Palm Jumeirah. The layout and quality of furnishings surpassed our expectations and the little free extras such as the golf clubs, putting green, kayaks etc. made for a memorable stay.We all look forward to returning next year.A.D.
