My wife and I offer affordable and quality housing in Sharjah for professional, financially stable, culturally sensitive, non-smoking, non-drinking, quiet, clean, mature, and flexible visitors in need of temporary accommodation while visiting the UAE.  These visitors will be blessed with the opportunity to stay in the quality fully furnished Flat 719 in Khalid Plaza.

As Abraham extended hospitality to the angels at the great oaks of Mamré (Genesis 18:1-16), my family and I at Flat 719 extend hospitality to all who pass our way.

I am an American professional living with my wife, originally from Nicaragua, in a beautiful flat with 3 Bedroom + Maid's Room with 2 Full Bathrooms in Khalid Plaza in Sharjah, UAE which is next to Al Majaz Park, Khalid Buheira, and the Gulf.  Your bedroom windows will overlook Jamal Abdul Nasser Street.  This street is alive with activity and many places to eat.  It's also just one street over from Al Wahda Street which is the main road to Dubai.  It's also lined with shops and restaurants.

 If you have a contact in the UAE who needs to come to “inspect” the room or meet me, this person will also be expected to pay a deposit for you.  Otherwise, I will trust you to keep your "word" and arrive just as you expect me to keep my "word" and provide what’s discussed and agreed upon.  I come from a country where a man's "word" has value.  We say that "his word" is "his bond".  Trust goes both ways. 

Where is the flat?  Flat 719 is in Sharjah in the clean and comfortable Khalid Plaza.  It's located next to Pizza Land and Al Majaz Park.  An Internet Café and the Marino kitchen appliance store is at the base of Khalid Plaza.  The Sharjah City Centre/Carrefour Mall is only a 10 minute walk from the flat.

My wife and I have frequent visitors who are blessed and benefit from the accommodation available here.  There is also a full-time live-in housekeeper.  Flat 719 is our home, and it is a quiet place of high integrity, morality, and peace.  It is not a place for any visitor with an agenda that includes any form of indecency.

It’s good to have friends in the UAE, but you will need to entertain them outside the flat.  In other words, our visitors do not invite their own guests to the home.  Additionally, your personal guests should not wait for you in the lobby or foyer of Khalid Plaza.  The Security Guards make an effort to ensure that only residents enter the elevators (lifts).

All rooms are spacious, fully furnished, and include beds, closet, chair, small table, remote controlled color TV, and remote controlled satellite receiver.  The rooms have central air-conditioning provided.  Bath Towels and Bed Linens are provided and washed without any charge.  Bath Towels are changed every three days, and Bed Linens are changed each week.  Wireless Wi-Fi ADSL Internet is available in your room without any charge when you come with a modern laptop.  You are responsible for making the necessary settings on your computer.  A document will be provided to you via email upon request if it's not already attached to this email.  If you have difficulty connecting to the Internet after reading the document, there is an Internet Café conveniently located at the ground floor of Khalid Plaza.

Contribution Amounts Updated:  26th March 2007

Please complete and return the attached Request for Accommodation document to Rooms.Available@eim.ae  in order for me to check for availability (and current rates) for a room for your upcoming visit to the UAE. 

Upon arrival to the flat, all visitors are expected to comply with the following three mandatory requirements:

  1. REMOVAL OF SHOES:  For cleanliness and cultural politeness, please immediately remove your shoes upon entering Flat 719 before you step on any carpet.  Flat 719 is a clean home, and your full cooperation and attention are much appreciated.
  2. PASSPORT COPIES:  For security reasons, photocopies of the main page of the passports of male visitors and non-Moslem female visitors (if traveling alone) are given upon arrival.
  3. FULL PAYMENT UPON ARRIVAL:  Full payment for the total nights that you plan to stay at the flat is expected upon arrival.  UAE Dirhams, US Dollars, and EU Euros are accepted.  Please exchange all other currencies prior to arrival.  There are currency exchange businesses in the airports and in the Sharjah City Centre/Carrefour which is just a 10 minute walk from Flat 719.

Refundable Deposits:

  • KEY DEPOSIT:  There is a refundable key deposit of 200 Dirhams for keys.  The large key will lock and unlock the main door of Flat 719.  The small key will lock and unlock your bedroom.  Your key deposit is returned to you when you return the two keys.  It's not necessary for you to lock your bedroom door since you are staying in a home of integrity; however, it is certainly your option for added security and/or privacy. 
  • NOKIA MOBILE PHONE RENTAL AND DEPOSIT:  If you choose to RENT a mobile phone with charger which includes a UAE SIM Card and activated phone number, you must give a small full refundable mobile phone and SIM deposit of 600 Dirhams.  The deposit is returned to you LESS the rental fee of 50 Dirhams when you return the mobile phone with charger and the SIM card without damage.  You are responsible for purchasing the credit required to charge the phone.  You can purchase a pre-paid card with phone credits at any one of many local shops or you can buy the credit at Flat 719 and have the phone instantly charged for you in the amount you desire.

A FEW RESTRICTIONS AND/OR PROCEDURES TO ENSURE A PLEASANT VISIT BY EVERYONE:
  1. Visitors do not wear shoes in the home at anytime.  Please remove them immediately upon entering the flat before stepping onto any carpets.  House slippers are provided to you upon arrival.
  2. Please exercise caution when opening and closing the main, bedroom, and bathroom doors. Rather than simply push the doors close, please turn the knobs or handles and gently close the doors to avoid unnecessary noise that can disturb others.  Between the hours of 9:00pm and 9:00am, please refrain from speaking in front of the bedroom doors of others who might be sleeping.  Your consideration and cooperation are much appreciated by everyone.
  3. Visitors do not enter the kitchen between 9:00pm and 9:00am.  The kitchen is "open" from 9:00am to 9:00pm.
  4. Visitors do not eat inside their bedrooms.  You are in a clean and sanitary flat.  A table is available for your use.
  5. Visitors do not open windows in their bedrooms.  Central AC and Fans are provided.  Let's keep the sand and dust outside and the cool air inside.
  6. Visitors do not bring other visitors or guests or relatives home with them at anytime for any reason.
  7. On the day of arrival, visitors may arrive at any time of the night or morning.  Flat 719 is a place of quietness and rest.  During the rest of the visit, visitors should respectfully remember that others are sleeping between 9:00pm and 9:00am. 
  8. Please be careful during your visit not to damage the walls or other furniture with your suitcases or bags or personal items.  The walls are painted white and should remain white.  Also, please do not place your suitcase on top of the bedspread.  A suitcase that has travelled internationally and has been in unclean locations should not be placed on top of the bed cover in Flat 719.  Please show respect for others and respect the level of cleanliness provided at Flat 719.
  9. It is inappropriate to regularly return home or shower after 12:00am since locking/unlocking and opening/closing doors disturb people who are sleeping.  Please observe the "extra quiet hours" from 9:00pm to 9:00am.  If you find yourself out having fun with friends around 12:00am, it's probably a good idea to just remain with them until 9:00am in the morning.  Flat 719 is a place of rest, relaxation, and/or refuge.  It's not a place to come and "crash" after attending parties and other events in Dubai. 
  10. IMPORTANT:  Khalid Plaza is a quality residence building for tenants who are on a yearly lease.  Multiple security cameras are on all floors.  Flat 719 is our home.  It is not a hotel.  It is highly inappropriate and unacceptable for a visitor in our home to engage in any conversation or request any form of help from the security guards.  The security guards in the lobby or at the main doors are not to be used as a local “concierge” for information regarding taxis, making phone calls, places to visit, or any other matter.  Please do not speak to them other than a brief and courteous “hello”.  Your visit to Flat 719, our home, should be a quiet one that does not draw un-necessary attention to yourself or to my family.  You are to direct any questions or requests directly to me.  If you will not adhere to this simple and clear request, it’s best for you stay in a local hotel.

INTERESTED?  Have you read all of this email?  Are you in agreement with it?  If yes, email your completed Request for Accommodation document to Rooms.Available@eim.ae to check for availability (and current rates) for a room for the dates of your upcoming visit to the UAE.  If you're willing to abide by the requirements and restrictions mentioned in this email and availability for a room exists for the dates you require, you are most welcome here.  Completed Requests for Accommodation are handled and processed in the order in which they are received regardless of the length of stay requested.
