I need some advice to what i need to do in order to score what i seek.The company that is hiring me will probaply put me in Probation for the next few months so it isn’t right to sign a deal for renting for a full year and start buying furniture knowing I can get the boot any day.

Anyone is willing to help is mush appreciated.

I read a lot on people bringing their dog(s) to Abu dhabi or Dubai and finding no or little problem. I intend to bring the family dog (a small beagle) along with us. I have all the information on regulations, shipping, finding a place that will accept dogs,etc...ButI have found no information on the day-to-day life with a dog in AD. Here in Washington DC, I walk my dog morning and night, alnog the sidewalk, and I pick up after her. I am aware that dogs are not regarded as a family member in the Middle East and I respect that. I do not want to offend people when walking my dog and I would like to have some insight from dog owners (or non-dogowners, all opinions are welcome!) on how to go about this.
this is our first time in abu dhabi.
there are 2 people looking for some spacious homes to rent in Abu Dhabi.
1st: can pay up to AED 175k per year. Any 4 bedroom spacious nice ideas?
2nd: can pay up to AED 130k per year. Looking for a 3 bedroom villa or seaview apt.
Would appreciate any help.
I am about to take up a position in Abu Dhabi in 3 weeks after 2 trips to Dubai and AD in the last 2 months - coming from Melbourne, Australia I hope I can cope with the sun and heat ! I am arriving in a few weeks, with 2 young daughters ( 7 & 10 ) and a wife a little later.
Firstly, thanks to all the people who post in this forum as it has been an invaluable source of information in researching living costs and other information pertaining to lifestyle in the UAE and also most enjoyable reading.
Secondly, despite extensive googling and forum searching I still have a few minor questions I am trying to bed down and would greatly appreciate some local advice and thoughts:
1. Schools - The British School Al K is all booked out for next year ( drat ). The new Al Raha school actually has vacancies and does anyone have any thoughts or gossip on this school. Also, any thoughts on the American International School or Abu Dhabi Grammar School (Canada) and/or any other schools which would be good. The other American school is a tad out of the price range as well.
2. Wine - I am partial to a drop of Australian Wine ( or any other really )and short of building an undersea pipeline to Australia anticipate I may have to purchase supplies locally. To assist budgeting does anyone have a guide on the take home cost of a bottle of say, cheap Australian Jacobs Creek or similar. I purchased a10 ( AUD ) bottle in a hotel restuarant for50 in Dubai recently( AUD )which was not pleasing I must say so am scared already - too much fruit juice surely cannot be good for you ?
3. Used Cars - have received a few comments not to go near second hand cars as they are taken into the desert and beaten soundly to the point where comfy reliable used motoring is unlikely thereafter. Are the local 12 month warranties sound in providing a level of protection here ? Checking out car costs both new and used is straightforward its just this issue if "used verus new".
4. Beach Clubs / Sporting Clubs in AD
Have read various reports on "the Club" and a couple of other places. I am fairly keen not to turn ( further ) into a rotund figure of merriment ( strange I know )hence would appreciate any good reports of clubs which offer value for money for a family of 4 and also a casual atmosphere.
Well, there we are. My apologies for the length of this posting and any replies to any part of the above greatfully accepted with thanks.
Looking forward to living in AD.
Gordon ( currently in Melbourne soon in AD )
