Here is your chance to live in Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, the tallest tower in the world, as an apartment owner has put up his units for rent on a local classifieds website, seeking mere Dh995 a day.

According to the listing (dated: December 24), the landlord claims renting the apartments, 1,250 square feet in size, could effectively result in savings of up to 80 per cent for the renter.

The apartments will have either full view of the fountain, or the sea and have a reception area, a semi-closed kitchen plan, where bedrooms have an on-suite bath. The renter will have access to fitness facilities, room service (limited hours), cable television service, complimentary toiletries and housekeeping services, says the listing.

‘Emirates24|7’ tried calling the number given in the advertisement but it was not reachable at the time of publishing this report.

A number of landlords have been renting out their units on short-term basis since it fetches them nearly thrice the rent compared to signing a 12-month rental contract.

In 2013, the Dubai government announced that individuals could rent out their apartments on a daily, weekly or monthly basis after getting a licence from the Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM).

The move is aimed to increase the number of short-term accommodation available to tourists as the emirate gets ready to welcome over 20 million visitors during World Expo 2020.

No details have been shared by the department with this website on the number of individuals seeking license for starting the commercial activity.
