Our Sharehouses house a variety of ethnically diverse people and professionals who mingle and experience living together. Your family might think it is an inconvenience living with strangers don't you think? That is why we do our best to ensure our tenants are provided with what they need with minimal discomfort. Let's briefly look at the private spaces, aka the rooms.
If you wish for a separate room, the single room is the one you want. It is the most popular room. It is painted orange and it comes with a desk, cabinet, bed, and a dressing table. In addition, the space is large enough to even roll around luggage, and you have access to the laundry area through the veranda.
This is the perfect room for those who wish to live alone. It is fully stocked with everything a tenant needs.
The single room has a private veranda where the tenant can store things. There is a large closet to hang your clothes in.
The double room has a blue wall and a bunk bed, which helps take full advantage free space. You might be worried the bed on top will shake when climbing the stairs, making it uncomfortable. However, the bunk bed is made of solid birch wood so it will not shake, even if two adult males were to climb it, it will not move. Also, the wood used is environmentally friendly.
The beds and hardwood timber desks placed side by side in the room. Outside the glass door there is a well lit porch.
The cabinets are systematically arranged with the door. They are the perfect size to store your clothes and personal belongings.
The wooden bed matches with the desk and chair because they stand well with the colour blue. The shelves are attached to the wall to convey a more sophisticated feel. Plus is goves more storage space.
This room also has a bunk bed, but do not be fooled and think it is the same room as the last one. This room's wall are painted green to clear up any confusion(s). Unlike the other room, the desks in this room are divided to give the tenants a sense of personal space. Outside the glass door there is a private balcony with efficient space.
Everything in this house is basically environmentally friendly. From the wooden furniture to the paint on the wall, all was done with the thought of creating the best environment for the tenants. The bed also comes with it's own sheets, blanket, and pillow.
The desks are placed separately so it gives a little more independent feel.
Outside the glass door there is a private porch.
If you wish for more space and the bunk bed rooms are not doing it, then this double bedroom is highly recommended. Coffee mocha tones are used on the walls, the beds and desks are placed side by side, and overall there is much more space when comparing it to the bunk bed rooms. There is a vanity area, walk in closet(s) and even a private washroom.
The double beds are in front of a spacious veranda.
Lots of storage space, a dressing room, vanity area, suite styled washroom, which area all very popular features.
There tenants in the Sharehouse have particular favourite spaces. In the last 3 months, the Japanese students enjoyed sitting in the living room because the rofa was the right place to rest after returning from school.
Even though we found the place through the internet, it has even better facilities than the school dormitory. Our parents are at peace of mind because it is like a real house-like spacious studio. For international students looking for a safe place to stay, this location is highly secure so I would highly recommend it.
The view you have of the outside from the living room is very nice. You see trees wrapped around each other, children playing in the playground, and long trails that weave in and around the apartments.
The playground and exercise facilities available to the public.
A beautiful trail that really brings out the mood of the season.
So why do our sharehouses strive to create a comfortable atmosphere despite it being foreign to a lot of our tenants?
It is our wish to make your stay in our Sharehouse as comfortable as possible so we go to great lengths to ensure you are living in an enjoyable environment. From providing laundry detergent to toiletry, kitchen utensils to bedding, making sure everything is in it's proper place, it is all done to ease the tenants stay.
Just think about hanging that first batch of laundry you did at your new place, the lightness and fresh feeling you get from the smell of clean laundry already makes it seem like home. That is how we want our Sharehouse to feel like, home.
