Coliving has been enjoying increasing popularity among digital nomads, entrepreneurs, and other professionals for a reason. It’s more than a living arrangement. It’s a vibrant social lifestyle that taps into the need of freedom, sense of belonging, and more. It can truly be a life-changing experience. If you wonder if coliving is right for you, here are its greatest benefits to consider.
1. Coliving for a simpler, stress-free life
Renting no longer has to be a stressful experience. Forget the anxiety associated with sharing bills, looking for roommates, and arguments over cleaning the kitchen. Now you can apply through an easy form, move into a ready-made community, make one payment a month for rent covering all house services, and spend more time on the things you love. Whether you’re looking for a short-term arrangement or a home for longer, coliving is flexible enough to cater to all your needs.
2. With coliving you will live better for less
Coliving can save you money! Living alone has been increasingly unaffordable, especially for young adults. With all the perks included in your monthly rent, coliving has been found to generate savings of up to 40% compared to renting a traditional studio apartment. At B-Hive Living there will be no security deposits or broker fees. The home will be fully equipped, including guaranteed business-grade wifi. The mission of B-Hive Living is also making sure you truly live well. Read more about how we make it happen in our Hives.

With coliving you can fully embrace your digital nomad lifestyle. Whether you’re a planet-roaming remote worker, or wish to see the world and find a place to call home, coliving offers an incredible opportunity to find fulfilment. From exploring the Oxford pub scene to surfing on the beaches of Lisbon – coliving is a perfect choice for landing pad on moving to a new place.

4. You will belong to an exciting diverse coliving community
Loneliness is a hurdle experienced by too many people in the modern world. It’s especially difficult to make connections when you travel or move to a new place. Coliving homes are designed to encourage socialising, collaboration, and bonding, as well as privacy whenever you need it. You can be sure the community you live with shares you intentions, values, and interests while coming from various backgrounds and cultures so you can benefit from each other’s differences. It is not limited to any age group, and the vetting process discriminates against no one due to race, colour, age, religion or belief, ethnic or national origin, sexual orientation or gender. A coliving home is a safe place.

5. You will make friends for life
A coliving community is where you can share experiences and ask for help. You will enjoy authentic connections and make homemade memories. Depending on the demographic makeup of the home, residents are likely to be going through similar life struggles or successes as you. You will be able to support others and be supported on a daily basis. Many residents form friendships that outlast and exceed the coliving rental experience. It can be the beginning of a shared lifetime adventure.

Life at coliving offers a lot of opportunities for residents to socialise and interact with each other in and outside of the home. B-Hive Living provides you not only with an outgoing environment, but also a monthly calendar of social and wellness events that you can attend for free.
