Apartment in beach resort near Dubai, United Arab Emirates

OUR APARTMENT is located in Al Hamra Village, Ras al Khaimah, which is approximately 60 - 80 minutes from Dubai.
The building has a communal swimming pool, kiddies pool, and a well-equipped gym.
The main bedroom has a queen size bed; the 2nd bedroom has a double bed. Both beds are comfy, both rooms have a bathroom with bath, shower (over the bath), bidet. We also have a 3rd bathroom with a walk-in shower. 
The kitchen is equipped with dishwasher, washing machine, electrical stove, microwave, coffee maker.
We have wi-fi, and guests may use our printer. TV has mostly Arabic channels.
Our building is located right on the beach, and has an amazing sea view which you can enjoy from the wrap-around balconies.
Within a five minutes' walk we have a small store where you can buy the daily milk and bread. A mall with a supermarket is 5 minutes by car.
TRANSPORT: Taxis are plentiful and affordable. Uber does not yet operate here. I recommend that you rent a car, but you can get around with taxis.

NATURAL BEAUTY: You are within reach of the most amazing mountains (google 'Jebel Jais'). See, for example:

You can also do day trips to the Mussandam peninsula of Oman:

THE WEATHER
Ras al Khaimah is a desert city. Summers are very hot (up to 50C). It is also a modern city -- the aircon everywhere works very well indeed. If you want to enjoy shopping and interesting indoor places, summer is an excellent time to come. If you want beaches and desert, it will be too hot in summer. During fall, 'winter' and spring we have lovely weather. Before you contact me, please research the weather!

We would gladly and carefully look after your house, your plants and your pets.
We are non-smokers, and ask our guests to smoke on the balcony only.
Is our apartment suitable for persons with disabilities? It depends ... talk to me.
We prefer to stay in places with good public transport, where we can get by without a car.
