They sleep up to 15 guests and come with their own private beach and pools…

As the Dubai summer looms, we’re keen to find ways to hang out with our friends while also getting the most out of our dirhams.

Usually, that means checking in for a bargain pool day or staycay at one of the city’s many luxury resorts.

But if you’ve exhausted all of your usual staycation options, or need to find somewhere that’ll fit a big group, why not rent yourself a mansion on the Palm Jumeirah?
