Jumeirah Village Triangle (JVT) is a freehold community located between Emirates Road and Al Khail Road in Dubai. It is 30 minutes from the Dubai International Airport and 15 minutes to the beach or Marina area.

This site is for storytelling. I will share my stories about living in JVT and I hope others will too.

The site has also been created to give  residents a place to share and easily access information about living in JVT. Feel free to send me your suggestions on what to include.

Sign-up to follow new posts. Make the community a great place to live – share and post information to this site.

Looking forward to seeing many JVT residents on-line.

  1. Hi, I’m new to JVT and I was wondering what would be the best way to get to Media City, I keep getting lost and I was wondering if someone can solve this for me

    • Dear Alaa,

      Welcome to JVT. The most direct access, in my opinion, is to exit via Springs next to Choithrams. (Turn left, right and right to get onto Al Asayel Street. Go under the bridge and turn left onto Al Khamila Street. Continue straight until the intersection for the Greens. Turn left and go straight over the bridge that crosses above Sheikh Zayed Road. You are then entering into Internet City. At that first light, turn left and you’ll be heading into Media City from the backside. Good luck !

  2. I am a tenant in JVT. I would not recommend JVT to any tenant candidates. first off, the construction never ends here. (need to wake up 7:00 AM in the morning with a lot of noise giving you headache until the day ends.), second, the owner might ask you to leave at any time because either he will sell or add 2 more bedrooms (that means construction noise to neighbours), third, you will pay a lot of money to DEWA. (more than 2500 AED per month)
    It just does not worth it to live in JV and stay away.

    • Dear fellow neighbor. I would wish to comment that I have never paid more than 1,200 AED for DEWA. You must have a leak in your irrigation system or need to change your light bulbs to more efficient models. The houses are full of high consumption halogen lights in all the ceilings !

      Secondly, your point about the owner asking you to leave is unfortunately common place all throughout Dubai and not at all related exclusively to JVT. It’s unfortunate but the way of the world. Greedy people always want to make more money. However, nowadays, RERA has put into place much more effective rules to combat this practice. You should stand up for your rights. We did for 4 years (in another community) and the landlord always backed down.

      Lastly, construction is also a Dubai plight. I could cite hundreds of examples of places perpetually ‘under construction’ or people who have bought homes on what they thought were tranquil streets only to wake up to a four or six lane highway outside their door. Your only option is to make sure you rent something that is smack in the middle of many other completed villas. Although even that might not save you from being evicted, look at the example in Jebel Ali Village. Although I hear that now some three or four years later they are patching up the empty homes and putting them back on the rental market. Maybe you should consider going there?!

      Good luck.
