It is not completely abandoned as of now, but the ghost stories are still firmly rooted in this place. It is located about a 100 kms north-west of Dubai and takes about an hour by road to reach.

Jumeirah: House Of The Devil

The seven bedroom villa is infamous for its negative energy among the local residents. Filipino occupants were forced to abandon their home due to continual paranormal activity in their home.

Female residents shared their stories about being visited repeatedly by a male spirit during night time which eventually forced all of them to sleep together on makeshift beds on the floor. And even then they were disturbed multiple times during the night by that ‘spirit’.

They could see the shadow on curtains and walls. One inmate was locked inside a bathroom for over two hours and was eventually released by breaking the lock. Some residents also complained about the temperature of certain rooms dropping suddenly and whispering in their ears at night time. These eerie incidents scared the occupants thoroughly who vowed to never return back to this place.

Amazing experience I enjoyed Burj Khalifa and underwater zoo alot. Thanks Thrillophilia for advance tickets booking options.
"it was a great experience. I was bit apprehensive, when I booked through thrillophilia. but, they really organized it well. I booked a VIP package (costing 3800 per person). they arranged for private pick up in Nissan Petrol. They took us to camp, which is little far but better than Al Avir. \n\nLocal operator Mr. Danyal is a nice person. He took a great care of us. \n\nwe were provided land cruiser for dune bashing. then quad bike for 20-25 mins. after that, we did horse ride and camel ride. although camel ride and horse ride were namesake only. they would allow for 2 mins only and if you want to take a longer ride, you need to pay extra. so I skipped it. \n\nCamp had good performances like belly dance, Tanura show, Fire show and Jumba. Food was served on the table. Food quality was average.\n\nalthough, In the camp, they would try to get you money through multiple activities like sand art, Premium fruit salad, premium desserts, handbags, photo printouts, photo with eagle etc. And one needs to hard bargain. like I paid 20 dhiram for photos, they started with 150 dhiram."
