Our dream villa in Dubai! Everything from A to Z was meticulously thought of, planned, cared for, and organized by Kim & Tom. Living in their villa was one of the best experiences we ever had in Dubai. The villa is not only stunningly breathtaking – it looks like something out of Vogue Living Magazine. The furniture,décor, finishing and the overall space demonstrates exquisite taste.


Kim & Tom went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable – they even brought in a baby crib and high-chair, which was so kind. We have never felt so taken care of, pampered and relaxed in such a stunning home. The outdoor garden was perfect for our children, who loved swaying on the hammock. We loved how the pool had a safety gate too.


The kitchen had every piece of cutlery and utensil you could think of! The bathrooms look like something out of a five star hotel – the lighting, the finishing of the walls and floors is impeccable. (In terms of amenities - everything from towels, toiletries, bathmats, robes and slippers were provided). The gorgeous bathtub even had a candle!


We can’t think of a more beautiful home to stay in when visiting Dubai. For families, do note that the playground is only a two minute walk from the villa. Kim & Tom also have three bikes parked at the villa (two for adults, one for a child) which again, blew our minds! When it was time for checkout, we truly did NOT want to leave. J We will be visiting again and again (and again!).

"I stay one week with my family at Kim’s place. Honestly we hoped to stay more at the place. Not to go outside just want to relax in this sweet home it is quite and family friendly. We like the our private garden with the view to our private swimming pool Even my kids. They loved the place. And kym left some toys for kids. And the most important thing.... it about kym and tom. They welcoming and treats my family like VIP. They response so fast for what we need. And for what we asked. All what I can say... our holiday was perfect. Thanks Kym. Thanks Tom."

"Kym's place was AMAZING! She was super hospitable and very quick to respond to any questions. The home indeed looks like it came out of a magazine! Mylane was also very kind and provided us with everything we needed without even feeling like she was there. We visit Dubai frequently and hope to make Kym's place our go to accommodation!"

"Quite simply the best AirBnB I've ever stayed in in Dubai. Beautiful home, great atmosphere and an all around wonderful experience."

"This by far set a very high standard from amenities to experience! There is nothing not to love in the place! We've got a loving, understanding & caring host (Kym & Tom). We also don't even need to order coffee from Starbucks since Ate Mylene (the caretaker) brewed delicious coffee for us and makes a delicious orange juice and attended to everything that we need, she will even offer a cold towel to freshen us up when she sees us tired from our shoot, so sweet. It is really beyond our expectations. The interior of the place is so relaxing, the natural tones really add to the relaxation. Also, note to all reading this, since the place looks majestic, the garbage bin also looks the same (haha!), I did not even recognize it, I kept on finding it and had to ask for Ate Mylene's help, this is just one of the great memories kept. It is a great neighborhood and have great security as well. The host even treated us dinner before we left and greeted us personally. Will definitely come back and we recommend this place to everyone!"

Staying at The Lakehouse was a wonderful experience. The atmosphere was lovely and definitely a main contender to the wonderful stay. The mood set by the interior as well as the sound system, and the garden/pool was blissful and a wonderful escape. The community provided a pool and playground as well as a small shopping center with restaurants, supermarket, hairdresser and gym. Meanwhile it’s location was very strategic, far enough to cancel out the busy city however close enough to be in JBR in less than 15 minutes and only 20 minutes away from the financial center (Dubai Mall, Burj Khalifa, etc.) Kym is a wonderful host. She has thought about everything you could possibly need. Her communication was outstanding and always answered our questions.

If you hesitate between an hotel or a house, forget the hotel and book The Lakehouse to Kym ! Everything is excellent, nice furniture and design, hospitality with Genny, etc.... All is dedicated to the guests. Hope to rent it one more time. Our stay was very nice, we really enjoy the house, kids are like at home. +++++++

The Lakehouse is something special. It will be in our hearts forever. We never forgot our stay in Dubai. Everything has been perfect. Kym is fantastic and Genny helped me with the kids. This house is an experience to do. They want to come again. It was perfectly cleaned. Everything has been perfect. We will come again Kym and we will suggest your property to all our friends. Thank you! Llaria

The Villa and the hospitality was amazing. Whenever we had a question or a wish Kym looked after it immediately. We never missed something during our holidays. The housing area has two big pools, a fitness studio, a small supermarket and a restaurant where you can go easily by bike. The surroundings are nice for running. Everything was really perfect. We would come back at any time.

Kym's villa was way beyond our expectations.... it's located in a residential area with a 5 minute bike ride to the local supermarket. Taxi rides are cheap - to the JBR walk it was only £4 approx. It was lovely to visit the Palm & beach areas and then be able to return to the villa in the evening. Genny, the housekeeper always had the villa immaculate on our return, with even cold towels and water on arrival. (Fruit and bread was supplied on arrival) Full laundry facilities are available and the villa was equipped extremely well with every possible utensil supplied. The villa is stunning - the Master Bedroom has ensuite with a sitting area & balcony. Two further double bedrooms upstairs with a main bathroom. Downstairs is another bedroom, fitted with 'bunk beds' (single top & double bottom) - single adults can still easily sleep here too & it also has ensuite. We were a group of 7 and the villa was very spacious and could only be described as 5 star accommodation. A great deal of thought was put into the refurbishment & decor. Kym was an excellent host, contacting us initially and even suggesting places of interest during our stay. If in any doubt at all before booking- don't be!! This is a WOW airbnb and if ever back in Dubai we will definitely use again and again and recommend to all our friends and family. Thanks Kym for a fantastic stay and for making Dubai memorable xx

Kym is an outstanding host and amazing person. The hospitality was amazing and Kym (the host) didn't hesitate to answer and assist in any inquiries or random questions we had. It felt like she was a friend i knew for a long time. Her and her husband Tom was both very kind and always helpful. Amazing home and cant wait to come back again.

We can highly recommend staying at The Lakehouse. Kym really is a Superhost! From our first communication she was warm, friendly and helpful. Kym replied to all communication in a prompt and thoughtful manner. She really understood our needs and was able to give us lots of local tips and advice which we really appreciated. The Villa itself is beautiful. It is tastefully and thoughtfully decorated. We felt very much at home there. We enjoyed the space that the Villa offers as well as lovely touches such as warm towels and chocolates on arrival and throughout our stay. The kitchen is very well equipped and the toiletries are also lovely. We enjoyed using the Airplay facility and the entertainment. The parent retreat is a lovely space too as is the outdoor space. The children’s bedroom is great with the added feature of a few toys which the children enjoyed. The Lakehouse is in a super location and we used Careem (recommended by Kym) to get around Dubai. It was excellent and even had children’s car seats! Within the development itself there is a super restaurant, grocery store and swimming pool. All in all, The Lakehouse is a home from home. We had a wonderful holiday and would like to thank you Kym for all of her help and for making our holiday so special. It was lovely to meet her too! If you are looking for accommodation in Dubai - stop looking and book the Lakehouse!

We were three adults and two one-year-old babies. The place is amazing and perfect for a family looking for getaway place to relax and enjoy the pool. The kitchen is perfect for looking and fully equipped ! We love the interior design of the house which is a huge plus ! The hosts were wonderful both Kym and Tom, we had a minor problem and they made sure to solve it and made us comfortable and Kym made sure to communicate everything and answer all our concerns Will definitely come back again !

The Lake House was amazing and beyond expectations. Spotlessly clean and the kitchen was fully equipped with everything and more. Kym was extremely helpful with everything from ordering taxis to suggesting the best places to eat. We stayed three nights which wasn’t long enough, being a family of grandparents, parents and children and we were all fully catered for, the children’s room with the bunk beds was gorgeous with lots of toys . The kids loved the pool, we’ll be back. Thanks so much Kym.

We have just returned from a wonderful holiday in Dubai. Everything was as described and Kym could not have been more helpful.

We were 5 adults meeting in Dubai for a family reunion. We cannot say thanks to Kym enough for her great help making these few days very special. From the day when we booked the villa, Kym has been always available to answer our questions and also helped us fantastically to organise our trip in Dubai with great suggestions of activities and places to see/go. The villa was as beautiful as expected, a paradise oasis in Dubai. It was a very relaxing stay with everything we needed. The house is sparkling clean with all amneties. It really feels like home, comfortable and cosy. Its very safe and quiet. We want to ce back very soon! We highly recommend this Lakehouse villa!! Thanks Kym for everything xx

I’m a big Airbnb user and have stayed in places and homes that I enjoyed immensely. However, I can honestly say that this is the very BEST listing I have ever stayed in because of the property that is immaculately clean, everything working as it should, absolutely perfect host and staff who both seem to truly love hosting and clearly have a passion for being excellent at it. Please keep on loving what you’re doing because it creates an amazing energy for guests who stay in your place! All the very best to you, your family and Genny!

This villa is really at least as beautiful as shown on the photos and the description is absolutely right. Kym and Tom are AMAZING hosts, always available for every question we had before, while and after our stay (we stayed several weeks). Amazing hosts for us means on the other hand that this great villa felt like OUR home while we were guests. The owners always asked for permission days before they (or service companies) needed to enter the(ir) house, all details are done in such a professional way. The villa comes with daily cleaning and towell change and all you could ask for - so absolutely no cleaning issues that you normally have after some days in an average holiday home. Housekeeper Genny is also such a friendly and professional helper, we cannot stop recommending all of this setup to everyone. I do not need to repeat again and again: Just read the desciption of this gem and look at the photos, it is all more than true, Kym never promises too much but always over-delivers! It is too much to be able to mention every detail. A rental car is highly recommended (if you stay for a bit longer than a few days), driving in Dubai is VERY easy and relaxed and parking is never an issue at all (we drove 6000km, so we know a bit). Location is great: Supersafe gated community (well maintained and landscaped), quite in the middle of everything you might want to see in Dubai (and rest of UAE) and at the same time it feels like far away from hectic city life.

Kym and Tom are great hosts. They are very professional and thorough and yet very warm towards their guests. Their house is beautifully maintained and there is daily cleaning service, change of bath linen etc. Even the fridge is stocked pre-arrival with some basic groceries like milk, juices, bread, fruits etc. which was very thoughtful. Overall very comfortable stay and highly recommended.

Kym’s house is tastefully decorated with great standards and impeccable attention to details. The house is also very well located. Kym was extremely responsive to our questions and did everything to make our stay special. We will come back for sure.

David - UK

Mar 16 - Mar 23 (2019)

Kym is an amazing host, really helpful and friendly and also very accommodating. Apartment was spotless on arrival and also very clean after Genny had been to tidy (very messy group of girls). Interior design and garden were beautiful! I have already recommended to friends and family and will defiantly stay again if I am with a big group.

This place is just amazing! We loved every single part of the house, everything is so thoughtfully designed! Kym is an amazing host and her place is fabulous. No words can describe the feeling you get when staying there. We’ll be coming again for sure! So glad we found this gem an hour away from us!

Salwa - UAE

Apr 03 - Apr 05 (2019)

This house is just perfect! From the amazing outdoor space, the quick helpful advice from kym, to Genny the maid and the fabulous house itself (perfect for both children and adults), it makes a perfect home from home. A wonderful space to share with friends. The private chef kym set up for us (Vanessa) just topped the holiday off!
