What to choose? Furnished or unfurnished?
Depends on your needs. If you are a family with 2 kids that immediately needs to move in the area for business or diplomatic matters, then a ready furnished 3 or 4 rooms apartment or a villa might be suited. Look for the apartment to make sure you can have facilities like proximity schools or afterschool, a free playground for your juniors to have fun, or maybe if the family dog is also accepted in his new home in Doha. An extra room also fully furnished for a maid might be taken into account, if you will need an extra hand on the house administration.
