Accommodation in Abu Dhabi - where to look?

Hi there,

I will be moving to AD in a few months and will be working for an organisation which is based in Masdar (and about 10 minutes from the airport). I have been banging my head against the wall with accommodation and trying to find the most suitable area to look for apartments. I really have zero knowledge of AD so any help and recommendation is much appreciated.

Judging by the map there is Khalifa City close by and across there is also Al Raha. I am not particularly interested in Khalifa City, but I wouldn't mind some information regarding Al Raha.

My second query is whether it would be wise to live in a more central area (Al Mushrif, Zayed Sports City, Danat Towers) or on Al Reem Island for example and commute to work every day. For example, Google Map indicates a 35 mix drive (in non-traffic conditions) to work from Al Reem Island.

Thank you very much for any help and advice, I really appreciate it.
