To answer the questions you might have:

What is coliving and why it is a great solution in San Francisco?

 It is time to put behind the struggle of apartment hunting in San Francisco and enhance your city living experience with affordability, convenience, and simplicity. Urbanests San Francisco coliving is an upgraded rental option with no stress of traditional housing search. In addition, included in the monthly rate, you get all utilities, several amenities and the experience of living with a diverse and tight-knit community.

Urbanests will take care of the room furnishings, utilities, and communal living area, so your entire rental experience is as seamless as possible. There is regular cleaning of common areas that makes living in coliving space even better. Every Urbanests property has an onsite manager who will take care of mail,  maintenance issues, and any emergencies that may arise.

Through coliving housing, we embrace sustainable practices in San Francisco. Instead of tearing down buildings and rebuilding new ones, we have redeveloped old buildings to make them more suitable for your coliving experience. Our goal is to reduce our carbon footprint and help others take part in it. We believe in success powered by meaningful connections and shared experiences in place of materialistic values and square footage.

Can I sign a lease for less than a year?

Looking for flexible lease terms in San Francisco might feel impossible since most landlords of the apartments on the market require at least a one-year lease. At Urbanests, we understand the struggle, so we reduced the required lease term to three months. You are welcome to try it out and see if coliving is something you would like to be part of. This also appeals to those who travel to San Francisco for short term internships, medical residency, or professional enrichment courses, and do not want to break the bank on daily hotel room rates. Our short-term leases offer an affordable solution.

What types of community space do you provide?

Each of our buildings has a unique character and design. Some of our Urbanests coliving residences have an array of different options for community building, such as kitchen, living area, study area, laundry room, and bathrooms. The kitchen comes fully supplied with cooking appliances and cookware such as stove, cooktop range, refrigerator, microwave oven, etc. The availability of living and study areas depends on the residence, however, it is furnished with sofas, chairs, tables, power outlets, and TVs. Bathrooms are fully equipped and regularly cleaned and supplied with toilet paper and soap.

In our community areas, we aim to enhance your experience with important relationships and networking opportunities. You always have a chance to connect with your cohousing neighbors over simple everyday things such as cooking breakfast or relaxing on the couch. When privacy becomes a concern, you can always spend your time within the comfort of your own room.

“Not only did it prove to be a great choice as far as location and affordability, but most of the other tenants tend to be college students and young professionals. Overall they tend to be a very friendly and diverse community…”
