Life and Housing Options in Mesaieed (Doha)

Hello Everyone,

Need input from fellow members on housing options if working with QS in Mesaieed. Company is offering accommodation in the area but I will forfeit the accommodation allowance of QR 8,500. Total package comes to around 35K.
Company gives a furniture one time payment of 40,000 so unfurnished accommodation would be suitable. We are a couple with no children.

1. Are there quality options in Al Wakra/ Mesaieed and are they easy to find. Or do they have long waiting lists.

2. How is the driving time like from Doha in the morning. Which area in Doha would you recommend with a balance of quality housing-travel time. West Bay and Pearl would be definitely a bit far.

3. Anybody who has moved from Bahrain to Qatar- comparisons on life in general and what they really miss.

thanks in advance.
