How to find a short-term apartment in Lisbon?


in Lisbon, Portugal by @jenny_ | 4yr  | 10 comments

Hi everyone,

we plan to work from Lisbon from mid of April to mid of June this year and were wondering if anyone knows how to find a short-term apartment. AirBnB does not really offer much under 1000 Euro, which seems a bit high to us.

We are looking for a 1-bedroom apartment close to the city centre - budget: max 800 Euro. Can someone help?

Thanks! Jenny & Sebastian

Hi,
Yes! We found something on airbnb (way too expensive though) and stayed there for one month in May last year. Actually it was pretty hard to find something appropriate and we ended up paying 1000 Euro for the month.

1000?? I stayed there for a month (in the centre) in july last year for about 316 (using airbnb).
Did you set the filters correctly? Also maybe try zooming in on the map, because sometimes it doesnโ€™t show places until you do!

Did you stay in a private room or did you have your own apartment? We would like to have our own apartment from which we can work from most of the time, too.

Iโ€™ll have another look at airbnb and the websites Tiagor suggested, but last time I checked the cheapest option cost something around 800 Euro/month. Hope weโ€™ll find something cheaper, soon.

Iโ€™ve learned that itโ€™s not uncommon for hosts to provide discounts, even on top of the monthly discount, when asked. Especially for multi-month stays. The last place I stayed I messaged two places in the same price range and with similar amenities: โ€œIโ€™m interested in booking for 3 months. Do you have any additional discounts available?โ€ One host declined, the other offered a 30% discount with no additional haggling, and my dates were during high season.

In my limited experience it seems to be more successful with people who are managing their own property and would be happy for the guaranteed income and reducing the overall hassle. I havenโ€™t had any success with professional hosts that are doing this as their full-time job and managing other peopleโ€™s property.

There is also the โ€œlocalsโ€ facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/159234807548975/permalink/668792903259827/

Search for T1 (which is what we call an 1 bedroom apartment), and avoid listings that donโ€™t have pictures and/or say โ€œprocuroโ€ as they are from people searching, not offering. Be aware most people here are looking for 1 year rentals, so uniplaces may be your best alternative to airbnb.

I am going to move to Lisbon in July and I was wondering where you guys work from? Do you have any recommendations for working on a budget? Any good cafรจs or cheap coworking spaces?

I did some research and found some coworking spaces for > ~ 100โ‚ฌ p. month which is pretty reasonable but too much for me right now.

Thanks!

How to find a short-term (2-3 weeks) in Koลกice?


in Kosice, Slovakia by @adamnowek | 2yr 1 year ago | 0 comments

Hi nomads! Iโ€™m planning to head to Koลกice in May for a few weeks, both to work and to watch some hockey (the World Championships are being co-hosted in the city). Weโ€™ve tried looking into places to stay the usual ways (Airbnb, Booking.com, et al) but it looks like the city is completely sold out during the dates of the hockey tournament.

Does anyone know of any other resources for finding a place in Koลกice? Or does anyone happen to have an apartment to rent out if they want to avoid the onslaught of thousands of hockey fans? :stuck_out_tongue:

How to find a 1-month apartment for rent in Medellin, Colombia?

Iโ€™m visiting Medellin this October for a month and was wondering whatโ€™s the best way to find a place there.

Iโ€™m looking at El Pabelado, but on Airbnb itโ€™s all like $1500, when I know the real rent price there for a 1br should be $600.

Anyone can recommend some locals so I wonโ€™t get scammed/overpay?

Malta: Where to stay, how to find apartments


in Malta by @ryan.d.wardell | 4yr 3 years ago | 2 comments

Hey nomads! I just landed in Malta and Iโ€™m looking to rent a 1br apartment for a month, ideally close to a gym and supermarket.

Am I best sticking around sliema/st julians? Or st paulโ€™s bay? Or in Valletta itself?

Also, I havenโ€™t had much luck finding monthly rentals on airbnb or through simonmamo or other real estate sites - seems to be really tough finding a place for 1-3 months. Any inside tips on how to rent an apartment for a month here?

What are the best ways to find an apartment in Barcelona?


in Barcelona, Spain by @tylertringas | 4yr 3 years ago | 15 comments

Lots of nomads in and headed to Barcelona. Letโ€™s create a central place for resources, guides and sites for finding an apartment.

Iโ€™m headed there in April for 1-3 months (argh, Schengen!). So far Craigslist and Spotahome seem useful. What else is there?

Also any thoughts on neighborhoods would be great here. Right now Iโ€™m looking at Gracia which seems to be the spot. Probably avoid Barrio Gotico and Barceloneta due to masses of tourists. Iโ€™ve heard some good things about El Bornโ€ฆ thoughts?

How do you find an apartment when there's nothing on Airbnb or Craigslist?


by @krompson | 4yr 4 years ago | 5 comments

So far, everywhere Iโ€™ve lived, Iโ€™ve been able to book an apartment in advance on Craigslist or Airbnb. Sometimes Iโ€™ll even reach out on the #nomads Slack group, on Couchsurfing, or contact the owner of a local coworking space to see if anyone knows a landlord in need of a tenant. This works great for larger towns and cities.

Iโ€™m beginning to look into living in smaller, more remote towns. Does anyone have advice about showing up in a country without a home and tracking one down?

Any tips for renting a one month apartment in Bangkok for under $500/month?


in Bangkok, Thailand by @kirill | 5yr 4 years ago | 6 comments

Iโ€™m moving to Bangkok in November, and shooting to find an apt. with wifi for under $500 / month, for probably just a one month stay.

More curious about which neighborhoods to look for, something lively and fun as well. And any methods too, Iโ€™ve been looking at Airbnbs but get the feeling that itโ€™s a little inflated on there.

Thanks!
