In a fast-paced world, you are always on the move. It could be a new job, a new startup or a new course that you are enrolling for. You may need to move to a new city or even move within the city to an independent living space. However, finding the right living space that ticks all the boxes on your checklist is not easy.
So how would you normally go about the task of finding hygienic, furnished bachelor accommodation in say Bangalore, for instance?
Bangalore being the Silicon Valley of India is a hub for Multinational companies, IT and Business Park. People from across the nation searching for opportunities to achieve their dreams and aspirations land up here. There is so much demand for housing that finding that one perfect place you can call home can be a hard nut to crack.
Moving to a new city, or moving within a city, can be a task. You would check with friends and relatives. You would browse on social media platforms. You could check out rental housing websites. You could physically check out a few apartments. Yet, how often are you lucky enough to get your hands on a fully furnished and affordable apartment you would want to move into? Seldom, right?

Safety for women
Safety for women has always been a cause for concern and more so in recent times. Odd working hours due to early morning and night shifts leads to travel at odd hours which makes it important to have a safe living environment. It is most important to check the neighbourhood reviews especially if you are a single woman with odd working hours.

Nobody except Colive residents, housekeeping staff and guests have access to the premises.
