Private Living Space
All of us need privacy and a clean living and sleeping area that you can call your own is a basic need. We all need a comfortable place to return to after a long and tiring day at work.
At Colive, you can get a range of options to choose from. Whether you need a single room PG accommodation or an apartment or you want to share the space with a couple of other like-minded people is completely left to you. The spaces are clean and comfortable with a bed and a designated study area. There are common shared spaces for the co-residents in the apartment. All apartments are done up in a modern minimalist style. You can easily take your pick from the choices available.
Everyone needs to feel safe and secure in their private space. It is one thing to be at home and a completely different experience to live among strangers. Several factors regarding the neighbourhood need to be considered before zeroing in on a PG accommodation that ticks the safety box. It is not a decision that can be taken in haste. If you are a single woman, it becomes even more important to find a safe neighbourhood for your safety at all hours.
At Colive, you can be assured of a good night’s sleep because we have you covered. All Colive properties are covered by 24*7 surveillance. There is no access to the property except via tech-enabled access cards that work on facial recognition. We also have an Emergency Response Team to address any disasters or emergencies that may arise with a helpline that works 24*7. To address the concerns of women regarding safety, we also provide all women PG accommodation in designated properties.
We live in a fast-paced world and we have got used to several basic amenities. Once you move away from home, you cannot expect to create a new home on day one. However, you would still need the basics to have a comfortable life. Buying all these amenities would become overwhelming for a youngster who is new to a city. If you look for a furnished apartment for single occupancy, it would cost a bomb.
Well, at Colive, we provide you with tasteful modern living spaces that come equipped with all the modern amenities. The apartments come with a kitchen that is fitted with basic appliances. The living room is fitted with a television, in case you are looking for some entertainment.
Today’s fast-paced life is completely dependent on the internet. Life comes to a standstill when the wifi stops working. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, work from home has become a norm. So, having a working wifi network has become a necessity not a luxury, in today’s world. If you try setting up accommodation on your own, you will need to factor in this expense as well.
At Colive, all our properties have a working wifi network. So you can work comfortably from home. We also have shared spaces where you can brainstorm with your colleagues. In today’s digitized world, you cannot compromise on this and we perfectly understand.
People who are new to Bangalore are not aware of the traffic snarls that this city faces. It becomes quite difficult to commute from one place to another. In a new city, it is always convenient if you find your PG accommodation close to your workplace. Having it within walking distance is just perfect. It will save you loads of time and energy in the morning and evening.
We understand your needs at Colive. That is precisely why we have several properties located close to the IT parks. Our properties in Bangalore are available at Electronic City, Sarjapur, Whitefield, Koramangala, Indiranagar and Bellandur. These locations are close to the business districts. Easy transport connectivity is available from these properties. So you can be close to your workplace without burning a hole in your pocket.
Food and Laundry
Ok, now that the basics are taken care of, what about the food? If you like cooking, it will involve setting up a functional kitchen with basic white goods like a gas stove, microwave oven, refrigerator, mixer etc. Else, you will need to buy food from outside which means you need to live in proximity to food joints that are open late at night. It is the same issue with laundry. You may be the kind who washes your clothes or hires someone to do it. A simpler solution would be to buy a washing machine but that is another capital outlay. Food and laundry are basic issues that cannot be put away for another day. They need to be resolved daily.
If you have a flair for cooking, Colive provides you with a kitchen in your apartment with a microwave, induction stove etc. We also have a large community kitchen where you can cook yourself a meal. We keep the refrigerator stocked with bread, jam, eggs etc. At most Colive properties dinner is provided while at some others even breakfast is included. We also have Big Bazar vending machines at some of our properties to allow you to purchase provisions/ snacks without leaving the premises. As for your laundry needs, we have industrial washing machines that can be used in the designated laundry area. Whew, that’s two more issues off the long checklist.
Now, you have found yourself a place to live in. What about the daily maintenance? Who will do the daily household chores? Being single, you will find it difficult to get a maid who can adjust to your timing. It is risky for you to hand over the keys to the maid. With your hectic work hours, you may find it difficult to balance your household chores.
You have no such worries at Colive. Colive Properties have housekeeping staff who take care of the daily maintenance and keep the place spotless. So you can relax and return to a clean living space every evening and not be hassled by routine work.
All work and no play makes life very dull and boring. We all need to unwind at the end of a busy day or week. Staying in a single accommodation all by yourself could be boring. You would need to find something to do in the vicinity. It could be a movie or some games with friends or just stargazing. Everyone loves a bit of me time to indulge and relax away from the daily monotony.
Colive has you covered on the entertainment and recreation front. All apartments have a television in the common area. In addition, most properties have a Cinema Room where you can even arrange for a special screening with your friends. There is a game room with a PlayStation, foosball, table tennis board and other board games for some fun. If you want to frolic on the terrace, we have a starlit lounge.
You can always find like-minded people on our properties who may have shared interests.
Now we come to the most important point of them all – does it suit your pocket? Setting up a home away from home is not easy for a single person. It becomes extremely expensive to create all the amenities on your own. If you opt for a fully furnished accommodation that ticks all the above boxes independently, it is sure to burn a hole in your pocket. So what is the viable option available for single men and women who are exploring new opportunities in an unknown city? Bangalore is known for the high-security deposits on rental properties. It can be as much as 10 months of rent which can pinch you dearly. Before you put down that deposit, you need to be 100% sure that it meets all your needs.
We understand how difficult it is for people to move into a new city and find suitable PG accommodation that is clean, safe, modern and commutable without paying an arm and a leg for it. That is the reason why we have developed properties in so many happening areas of Bangalore that fit the bill perfectly. They tick all the boxes on your checklist. Security Deposit is limited to two months rental. The rentals vary depending on the type of property, amenities available and the type of occupancy you choose (single/double/triple). So you can even move in with a couple of your colleagues and have a comfortable experience here.
What are you waiting for? Whatever be your requirements, I am sure we have something that matches your needs in Bangalore. All you need to do is visit www.colive.com and explore the options available in Bangalore. You can use our online assistant to guide you through the website and address your queries. Once you narrow in on a property that you like, you can request a virtual tour. Yes, you can check out what we have on offer from anywhere. Since our PG accommodation spaces are in high demand, we recommend you to put in a booking amount of Rs 4000 if you want to book a property. This amount can be adjusted against the security deposit when you check-in. This amount is non-refundable in case you cancel before checking in. This is only to discourage casual bookings and help those genuinely in need.
So, don’t waste time. If you are in Bangalore or moving to the city soon, take a few minutes to browse through our website. We assure you that you will have a pleasant stay in the city. We will be ready to welcome you aboard for a wonderful coliving experience.
