Co-living vs. B&B: The New Trend in Practical Investing

There is no place like home. But the lure of exciting opportunities in the metropolis takes people away from their familiar environment to areas more conducive to pursuing their dreams. With large-scale in-migration comes increased demand for temporary residential accommodation.
Besides leasing a property for interim use, which usually requires a six- to 12-month contract, two other transient living options are available in the Philippines.


B&B, or bed-and-breakfast, is primarily homestays targeted toward short-term travellers. As the name suggests, guests are afforded a comfortable bed and complimentary breakfast during their stay, which typically lasts from one to two nights. Since B&Bs are usually homes rented out by independent owners, both space and service are limited compared with professionally run hotels.


Co-living, on the other hand, is a community-centered concept that combines private living spaces with shared facilities. While the set-up of B&B aims to provide renters a comfortable place to stay, the infrastructure of co-living promotes cohabitation. Less utilized areas such as living space and kitchen are shared among occupants, who each has their own bed or bedroom.  

Do take note however that unlike regular dormitories, co-living offers an elevated experience with furnished units and amenities that highlight convenience and collaboration. As it is complete with the essentials, co-living is ideal for both short- and long-term rentals. 




Since they are developed to address the housing requirements of mobile professionals flooding into the city, co-living developments are commonly located in prime, highly accessible areas such as urban centers, employment hubs, and school districts. 

Another notable feature of co-living is the host of amenities (gym, concierge, etc.) and resources (communal space) available for tenants to share. This “sharing economy” allows renters to enjoy the convenience minus the additional expenses. 

Finally, co-living meticulously draws the line between privacy and social contact. Shared spaces instill a sense of community in its tenants, who can retreat into their private spaces whenever they like.
