Coliving is a modern form of housing where residents share living space and a set of interests, values, and intentions. It’s a new take on an old idea, imagined by a millennial generation that values things like openness and collaboration, social networking, and the sharing economy.
Cohabs houses are all composed of private bedrooms and shared spaces such as a kitchen, a living room, a dining room, a cinema room and a zen room to facilitate communication between members.
Everyone can apply.
Our members come from all around the world, from the Northern lights of Finland to the sunny beaches of Australia. They are curious and open-minded, looking for new opportunities to connect and learn things.
Different types of events are organized every month for or by the members. It can be a yoga class, a poker tournament, a citizens' initiative, a private concert, a soccer game or simply a pleasant dinner. We also deliver a monthly breakfast in each home to make sure our members take the time to connect.
Each building has its own designed shared spaces. You’ll always find a kitchen, a living room & a laundry room. Most of the time, you’ll get a gym, a zen room and, with some luck, even a poker room!
Standard bedrooms have a double bed, a desk, a desk chair, a dressing, and private storage. Most of our bedrooms have a private bathroom.
In addition to the accommodation, every member can get a monthly subscription service that handles their bedding, laundry, dry cleaning, and room cleaning so they can spend their time doing the things they love. These are not included in the rent.
About your stay
First, you have to apply online to verify our room availability. If we have a room available at the date you’re looking for, you'll be able to book a quick call with our Community Manager to help you find the best fit within our network. You will be able to virtually visit your house and sign your lease online.
Our membership is all-inclusive, meaning that the price you see is the price you pay. On average, the pricing for a bedroom is around 700€ in Brussels and $1500 in New-York. In addition to the rent, we ask for a fixed 1.100€ / $1100 deposit that we return to you once you move out.
Beyond living & connecting with an open-minded community, our membership includes:
- basic groceries
- monthly breakfast
- fully-furnished private bedroom
- large and well-decorated shared spaces
- a tech-friendly environment
- all utilities
- weekly cleaning of the shared spaces
- monthly events
The check-in and the check out are done through our mobile application. In case of damages in the bedroom, the amount incurred fixing them will be retained from your deposit.
In case of damages in the shared spaces that aren't the responsibility of a sole housemate, the amount necessary for fixing them will be split evenly between the members currently living in the house.
The minimum length of a stay is 6 months while the maximum is 3 years, but we’re flexible.
