The majority of expats I know here in Doha live in Compounds rather than stand alone villas. These are gated communities  which have some communal facilities for residents to enjoy. There are loads of Compounds all over Doha, some are built with hundreds of villas and some with just a small handful. 
We live on a Compound, which is exclusively for the staff and families of people working for RasGas. It is called al Dana Gardens and is situated on al Beday Street in al Luqta. There are 100 four bedroomed villas here and we have a clubhouse, tennis court, gym, communal pool and a kids playground to enjoy.
