The business landscape has changed a lot over the past few years. We work differently, in different places and are beginning to travel differently too.

It’s that last change we’re discussing here.

Now business is firmly back in action, the demand for travel is steadily increasing. Even in the Zoom era, there’s still a need for in-person meetings and for staff to work outside the office.

Remote working and video conferencing answer some of the challenges of the modern business, but it cannot answer all of them.

People still have to travel to clients, work in other offices, travel to building sites or oil fields, be seconded to other universities or hospitals or undergo extensive training for new roles or responsibilities.

Life goes on and business never stops. Which means there’s a strong demand for business travel.

In fact, we have seen a significant increase in demand for business travel in the second half of 2022.

When everything around us is changing and evolving, why should we go back to the same old ways of working?

The old and new ways of business travel

Not all that long ago, if you traveled on business, chances are you took a flight, hired a car at the destination and stayed in a hotel near the airport or near where you needed to be.

It was a tried and tested combination that delivered predictability and the comfort of the familiar.

But it was far from cheap, or flexible.

Hotels are raising prices all the time. They nickel and dime you for every conceivable thing. They are located close to noisy airports or tourist areas and they are often busy and noisy.

None of which is ideal for the busy business traveler.

That all still happens, but there are now many more viable options.

You can ride share instead of hiring a car. You can home share instead of staying in a hotel.

You can also use corporate housing instead of a hotel.

Corporate housing is fully managed, fully furnished and equipped and designed as a genuine home from home.

What’s more, stay for 30 days or more and it could cost less than half a comparable hotel room!

All while providing a private space for your staff to eat, drink and relax with the comforts of home while working away.

It’s more private and much more reliable than home sharing. It’s cheaper and offers more space to relax than a hotel.

Corporate housing is typically close to business districts, so will often be more convenient too.

For staff, corporate housing offers a comfortable home or apartment with private space and all amenities. If the building or development has facilities, you can use those too.

For companies, corporate housing shows staff you value them by giving them more. It’s also hands-off, as Blu manages everything for you.

Finally, it’s cheaper than a hotel. Even though you get more, you pay less. In the current climate, that’s a genuine rarity!

So now we have set the scene, let’s get to those 5 reasons why corporate housing works for business.

We have touched upon them in the introduction but let’s cover them in more detail.

1. Cost savings

The most compelling reason for using corporate housing is the potential for cost savings.

Business travel costs money and with inflation like it is, any opportunity to save a little cash without compromising quality or amenities has to be a good thing.

Corporate housing can help with that.

On average, companies can save anywhere between 40-80% on accommodation costs when using corporate housing.

Much depends on the location and length of stay, but on average, you can save in excess of 50% on a comparable hotel for stays of 30 days or more if you use a corporate apartment.

All while providing more space, more privacy, more amenities and all the comforts of home.

Unfortunately, we can’t help with the cost of flights or car hire, but we can definitely save money on accommodation!

In fact, we may be able to help with car hire.

Many corporate rentals are in Downtown areas or financial districts. Close to work, close to stores and local amenities.

Potentially, your staff may not need to hire cars at all!

Another cost saving!

Typically, the longer the stay, the lower the rate. So, unlike hotels, you could actually be paying even less for staying longer.

How’s that for a great deal?

2. Location, location, location

As we alluded to a second ago, corporate housing tends to be in Downtown areas or financial or business districts.

That means no driving or getting the bus from an airport hotel or having to travel from sketchy areas with motel rows.

You can drive if you want, but it’s an option and not a necessity. That’s a minor but often important distinction.

If you’re in the military, work at a university or hospital, you’ll find corporate rentals close to those too.

Blu Corporate Housing has furnished rentals close to the largest military bases in the country. We also have housing close to many leading universities and large medical centers too.

With around 50,000 rentals in over 5,000 cities in the continental United States, Blu has access to almost every city in the country.

They will be close to the office, the hospital, the university, the building site, the oil field, the training center or the military base.

As corporate housing tends to be standard apartments or homes converted for business use, they can literally be anywhere.

3. All the comforts of home

The phrase ‘home from home’ is well-worn and somewhat overused, but is perfectly apt for describing corporate housing.

Long term rentals are outfitted just like your home and to a similar quality.

They will include high quality furniture, all appliances, soft furnishings, bedding, cookware, cutlery, crockery and everything your staff need to begin living right away.

All your team will need to bring with them are clothes and any personal items they cannot live without.

Even if staff share an apartment, they get to use all of it.

They will have their own private bedroom and free rein over the lounge, kitchen, diner, bathroom and any other spaces.

Need to do the laundry? No need to pay someone to do it unless you want to. There will usually be laundry amenities within the property.

Wash your clothes and live there as you would live at home.

From our own business travel experience, we find it much easier to relax and unwind in our own space than in a hotel room.

It’s quieter, there’s a better feeling of privacy and security and there’s usually a lot less noise from neighboring rooms and the hallway!

Need to work from home? That’s tough in a hotel room. Even the largest rooms or suites are hardly restful places.

Rent a corporate apartment and you have the entire space as your own. Spread out, put on some music or do whatever it is you need to do to work.

Finally, if you drive to the location, you’ll likely have a driveway or private parking.

Anyone who has used hotel parking will know how common it is to end up with mystery scratches or dents in their car.

It’s another small thing, but they are definitely mounting up!

4. Staff satisfaction

Staff retention is becoming tougher as shortages of skilled staff continue to bite. You could throw money at the problem, but that’s not always enough of a motivation to stay.

Showing staff you value them can be a considerable motivator.

Corporate housing can help with that.

If you don’t have the travel budget for 4 or 5 star hotel, you can give staff much more with corporate housing.

It offers frictionless travel for staff and delivers more space, more amenities and more satisfaction while they are there.

Your team couldn’t fail to be impressed if you rent them a penthouse or high end apartment in the center of a city instead of the same old chain hotels.

They get more space and a better experience while you save money at the same time.

While we all have bills to pay, making your people feel valued is one of the strongest staff retention techniques there is.

5. Customer service

If you have ever rented privately, you know it can be a bit of an epic journey. Lots of paperwork, credit checks, huge deposits and regular inspections by the agent.

There is less hassle with a hotel but there’s still plenty of paperwork to handle.

That’s not the case with Blu and our corporate housing. You get a dedicated account specialist who will be your single point of contact for everything.

Our team are here to help with anything.

We can find your accommodation, shortlist a bunch of options and liaise with landlord to book and manage the rental.

We are also here if anything goes wrong or if you need extra services. A pipe burst? We’ll manage the repair. Need grocery deliveries or housekeeping? We’ll book and manage it.

We are here to help with every step of the way.

From finding viable options in out of the way places, recommending rentals close to military bases or offices and helping arrange cable or internet while your people are there.

It’s all part of the service!

If you’re involved with business travel and want to change it up, corporate housing can help.

It offers more, for less and you’ll have less work on your hands managing it too.

It isn’t often a solution is a genuine win win without a downside, but this is one of those times!

Looking for somewhere to stay while moving cities or changing jobs? Need to house staff and don’t want to be tied into a fixed lease? It can be tough to find flexible business accommodation with month-to-month leases, we know, we tried!

Fortunately, you can find them if you know where to look. As experts in our field with many years of experience under our belts, we know exactly where to look.

Rather than keep it to ourselves, we think it’s only fair we share the goodness with you.

What follows is a comprehensive list of websites where you can find good quality furnished apartments with month-to-month leases.

We rate the website on ease of use, accessibility and the features you would look for on a housing provider site.

Blu Corporate Housing

It’s only right that we begin our list with our own website. Blu Corporate Housing has access to over 50,000 properties across the entire United States. Each represents excellent value and provides exceptional quality accommodation with month-to-month leases.

We also offer dedicated account management, a dedicated team of account staff and regular quality checks on properties.

Our website is simple and to the point. You can browse cities, contact us for more information and find out everything you need.

Pros: Extensive range of corporate housing across most areas of the country. Use the simple email inquiry form or browse cities for properties as required.

Cons: No search option on the website. Email inquiries are answered quickly though! also provides furnished apartments with month-to-month leases. They have access to over 30,000 properties in 6,000 cities across the country, so there’s sure to be something where you need to stay. Prices are keen too, which is a definite bonus.

The website is modern, loads fast and is a pleasure to use. It provides accessible language and a browse option for cities.

Pros: Engaging website, works with many types of potential client and excellent feedback from previous clients.

Cons: Another website without search. Fortunately, email inquiry and browsing is simple.

Fox Corporate Housing has a light and bright website, offering access to thousands of corporate rentals across the country. The company has a national presence, but their main offerings are in Texas where the company is based.

Overall, they offer a large number of furnished apartments with month-to-month leases, which is why we like them.

Pros: Wide selection of properties and property types. The City Search function on the website is also a neat idea even if it doesn’t include all the cities the company covers.

Cons: Website is slow, is insecure (doesn’t use HTTPS) and has an awkward layout in places. The service is supposed to be very good though!

Executive Corporate Housing has a very professional-looking website. The company is also approachable and are willing to work with anyone who needs to rent a furnished apartment with a month-to-month lease.

With over 60,000 properties to choose from you won’t be short of choice either.

Pros: Engaging website, dedicated team available via phone or email form, competitive prices, informative property listings.

Cons: A search function might be nice.

Blueground offers an engaging website with a bright and breezy feel. There’s a lot to like about the layout and feel of pages, as well as the city selector feature at the top.

The company offers corporate housing across the country and a few international destinations, ideal if you need to send staff further afield.

Pros: Professional-looking website with a neat city selector feature. Website is engaging and encourages you to explore.

Cons: Language on the website is a little overenthusiastic and comes across more as a sales pitch than others in this list. This erodes confidence, or at least it did with us.

2nd Address is a smaller furnished apartment provider but delivers a high-quality experience. It also has a search option, which makes it very easy to search the 3,500 or so furnished apartments they have on their books.

While fewer than some, the quality is equal so there are no downsides to using them.

Pros: Search function on the website, clear and accessible language explains everything.

Cons: Fewer properties than many others in this list.

Furnished Finder is more a search engine than housing provider, which is fine. Rather than handle everything for you, the website will put you in touch with the owner or management company and you’ll need to do the rest.

The website works well and presents a simple search function front and center. The website has access to 70,000 properties across the country.

Pros: Simple navigation, fast loading and a search engine front and center. The site also lists hotels and other resources too.

Cons: It’s a search engine only. Where Blu manages the entire rental, Furnished Finder just puts you in contact with the owner.


While technically not a provider of the best furnished apartments with month-to-month leases, it does list accommodation. We all know Craigslist. Love it or hate it, the site provides a wealth of opportunities depending on what you’re looking for.

If you don’t mind putting the work in, you can usually find accommodation in almost every city listed.

Pros: Wide scope with a huge selection of properties and property types.

Cons: Craigslist is the wild west and you’ll have to do everything yourself, including verifying the provider.

Facebook Marketplace

Facebook Marketplace is another potential source of furnished accommodation. But, like Craigslist, is somewhere you’ll need to tread carefully in order to avoid the scammers and rogue landlords.

That said, once you have performed your due diligence, it’s entirely possible to secure some great value accommodation.

Pros: Global reach with thousands of property listings across the world. Facebook is also universal, used by most people.

Cons: Due diligence is going to be essential if you’re to deliver the quality of accommodation you need. Plus, it’s all down to you again to manage.

Those are what we consider the websites that can help you find the best furnished apartments with month-to-month leases.

Each has its pros and cons, but can deliver the accommodation you’re looking for.

Of all of these, we would recommend the websites that manage the entire booking for you. It’s easier, requires less time and effort on your part and can deliver a superior experience as a result.

Those are the websites we would use! What about you?

Want to rent your furnished home, condo, or apartment? Well, what’s the best place to list your property for rent? You have a lot of options out there, but if you want to target business travelers, executives, and other upscale tenants then the corporate housing industry is probably what you want to target.

Corporate housing is basically anything that comes with all furniture, housewares, and utilities included in rent. In addition, the typical 6- or 12-month lease requirements are eased. Some of the most popular lease lengths for corporate rentals are just 30 days. The good thing with the month-to-month leases is that the daily price for the rental usually increases as the length of the lease decreases.

Best Sites to List Your Corporate Housing

Tips For Listing Your Corporate Rental

Write a Custom & Detailed Description – Be sure to write a custom description. The reason being is it will attract traffic from the Google. If you just copy/paste your description from another place where you had it listed, Google will know that and not serve your property in the search results. However, if you write a thorough and detailed description it will pull in search traffic. For example, if you describe your property as being a 4 bedroom home next to the Orlando International Airport and someone searches for “4 bedroom corporate rental” or “furnished 4 bedroom house for rent”, there is a good chance you will show up in the search results and it may lead to a reservation. So be sure to go into as much detail as possible about your rental and even more importantly the notable places in the immediate area of your rental. Airports, colleges, large business campuses, military and government facilities, stadiums, ETC.

Add Many Pictures as Possible – Always add as many high-quality images as possible. The pictures should have great resolution, be bright and welcoming. Avoid dark images or images that make your rental appear dingy and small.

Have a Video? Add That Too! – Video is even better! Give your prospective clients a video tour so they really get a feel for it. Be upbeat and welcoming in your video.

Traveling for longer periods of time or working away from home never used to be this convenient. You used to have to book a hotel or motel and contend with that single room for weeks or months on end.

No more. The rise of short term rentals, where you can rent a fully furnished apartment or house for 30 days or more has changed the landscape completely.

This change may not have captured the headlines like the rise of Airbnb, but the changes and opportunities short term rentals bring are just as powerful.

If you’re regularly working away from home or work with people that do, we’re going to show you where to find these short term rentals.

Each of the following websites has a decent selection of fully furnished and equipped short term rentals in cities across the country, and sometimes further afield.


It’s not an exaggeration to say Airbnb has changed the rentals market forever, because it has. It came seemingly out of nowhere to revolutionize the way we rent property.

While it may still battle with quality issues and unreliable hosts, as a whole, the service offers a simple way to book short term rentals in almost any town or city in the country.

You can rent rooms, apartments and entire houses on Airbnb. Prices are set in advance and you have a whole system to support you during your stay.

The only advice we would offer is to check reviews thoroughly before renting to make sure you’re getting what you pay for. Otherwise, it’s an excellent resource.

Blu Corporate Housing

Blu Corporate Housing is another short term housing website that seemed to come out of nowhere.

It’s different to Airbnb in that it doesn’t have the same global coverage or scale. However, quality is guaranteed as each property is checked and vetted by an in-house team. That team is there to support you throughout your stay, providing a slightly more hands-on experience than Airbnb.

The variety of property is a little less, but the quality of the properties and service seems to be much higher.

You can rent apartments, townhomes and houses. Rentals are managed by an account manager and all bills are included in the rent. has a similar look and feel to Blu Corporate Housing. Quiet competence with an understated website and overall feel.

Yet the company delivers exceptional quality properties, superb service and ensures every rental delivers on its promises.

The company has thousands of apartments, townhomes and houses on its books across the country. Simply complete the form by adding your destination and dates and the website will do the rest.

All properties are fully inclusive and deliver the flexibility and privacy you’re looking for.

Did you know did short term rentals for any reason as well as vacation rentals? Well, they do.

Booking a short term rental works in the same way as booking a hotel. Add your dates and destination on the main page, view the available properties and book the one you like the look of.

The range of properties isn’t quite as extensive as others in this list but the selection of destinations covers the entire globe. This could work well if you need accommodation in other countries of the world. is easy to use and prices are transparent. You don’t get the same level of choice, but the overall process is very straightforward.


Vrbo is a property rentals company that took over HomeAway. The combined company now has over 1 million properties on its books covering most of the world.

While Vrbo is primarily a vacation home provider, the purchase of HomeAway means they now offer shorter and longer term lets as part of the service.

It works the same as Select a destination, select your dates and see what’s available. Book through the site and everything is taken care of.

As far as we can tell, standards are high and reviews are good. There seem to be no hidden fees either, which is a definite positive.

We have more experience with HomeAway than Vrbo, but there’s no reason why the purchase should change too much.

Those are 5 of the many websites that list short term rentals. Each works slightly differently and has a different way of working.

Each delivers fully furnished short term rentals for vacations, work or other reasons though, which is why they are here!

That is a significant saving, which is magnified exponentially if you house multiple staff for long periods. A furnished apartment of the right size could comfortably house several staff members at once, only adding to those savings.


A rented apartment offers so much more freedom than a hotel room. Your people can eat, sleep and entertain when they want in peace and quiet. If you’re housing shift workers, this is doubly important. A good nights’ or days’ sleep is important to all of us, let alone when you deal with life and death each day.

Click here to view our off-base housing for Military and DoD personnel 

Anyone who has served for any length of time will tell you the quality of base housing is a genuine mix. While billions of dollars have been invested over the past decade, there is still work to do to catch up.

That’s why many serving personnel prefer to live off base.

Whether that’s renting a house or apartment or buying one, living off base is a common occurrence across all four branches.

That’s what this post is all about.

We’re going to offer actionable advice on finding the best furnished off-base military lodging.

No matter where you’re serving or how long you’re serving for, we can help.

We’re going to outline your main options if you’re changing station, on secondment or TDY.

On-base hotel or DOD lodging

You may not want to stay in base housing but what about a base hotel? Hotel, inn, DIOD lodging, call it what you like, it’s about the most convenient option there is.

It’s on-base, close to your station, cheap and convenient. You pay by the night and most, if not all, costs should be covered by your stipend.

You’re still using military property though. Some on-base hotels have been outsourced and provide better standards of accommodation. Not all will though.

If you’re traveling with family, forget on-base accommodation. Getting a pass and an escort every time they want to visit or leave is more trouble than it’s worth!

Off-base hotels

Off-base hotels will offer much higher standards of accommodation but charge a lot more for it.

Hotels are usually located in convenient places, close to base or transport links and will have amenities too.

However, for longer stays, a hotel room soon becomes confining. Those four walls soon begin closing in and living in a single room is never the best.

It may have been fine as a recruit or non-com, but it could have been a long time since you had to live in one room!


Airbnb has the flexibility you need to provide reliable off-base housing. Not all housing options will be suitable for military personnel or have long enough rental terms for secondments or longer stays.

Prices can be all over the place too.

The good news is the sheer volume of properties available gives you a lot to work with and perhaps provide the ability to switch between hosts for longer stays.

Do your research though, as it really is up to you to check out the place and ensure it’s up to standard.

Renting a house or apartment

Renting a house or apartment is a logical option if you’re at your new station or know you’ll be there for a year or more.

The downside of renting like this is that most houses or apartments are unfurnished. They are also for fixed contracts.

As we all know, TDY can change within hours and a standard lease agreement isn’t usually flexible enough to cope with that without costing you money.

Some leases are sympathetic to the needs of military personnel, but those tend to rent fast!

Corporate furnished housing for military personnel

There is another option you may not have thought of. Renting corporate housing. Despite the name, they work well for military personnel.

You pay by the month, they are fully furnished and equipped. You can block-book for months at a time or have a rolling monthly contract.

Work with the right housing provider and we can accommodate the unique needs of TDY too.

Corporate housing is typically in downtown areas, financial districts and the suburbs. Many are within reach of camp or base, or at least close to transport links to your duty station.

As a final benefit, all rents for corporate rentals are fully inclusive. That means one payment covers all your bills, utilities and essential services.

Everything is set up for you and can be managed by one of our team.

If you’re looking for safe, secure accommodation that’s flexible enough to cope with TDY, you’ve found it!

Are you building your own home? Need somewhere to stay while your home is being built? We can help!

One key challenge when building your home is where to stay in the meantime. Few of us have the resources to stay in our existing home while our house is being built.

So where do you stay?

Do you rent a hotel room for months at a time? Do you stay in a trailer or RV? Do you stay on site?

All those things are possible, but we recommend furnished housing.

You can rent month by month, houses are fully furnished and equipped and you can stay close to your new home and watch it being built.

Housing options for self builders

Of the million details you have to address when building your own home, where to stay while it’s being built is often overlooked.

Considering how important it is, that’s a mistake!

Your options are typically:

Rent a motel or hotel

Renting a motel or hotel for anything up to a year will be expensive!

Those four walls will also begin closing in on you long before your house is built. The combination of single room living, lack of cooking space, freedom to wander and the inconvenience of living among other people will soon wear thin.

Trailer or RV

Parking a trailer or RV on site is one way to live while your house is being built.

It might not be a comfortable way though. If your plot has room while keeping you out of the way of heavy machinery, it might work.

That is as long as you don’t mind the noise, dust, swearing and bad music that’s a staple for most construction sites!

Not all self builds will have the space for a trailer or RV alongside everything the contractor needs to build your home.

Keep your current home while your new one is built

In an ideal world, you would keep living in your current home while your new house it being built.

How many of us can pay for an entire house to be built without selling our current home?

How many of us could qualify for a large enough mortgage to cover our current house and pay for a new one?

Not many of us that’s for sure!

So, what’s the alternative?

Furnished corporate housing.

Furnished rentals while your house is being built

A furnished rental is the answer. Pay by the month, rent by the month and everything is included.

You can place all your stuff safely in storage, live near your new home or work and live in comfort until your new home is built.

It’s the easiest, more comfortable way to live while you’re building a new home!

With locations across the country, in cities, rural areas, small towns and anywhere you care to live, they are as convenient as it gets.

Your rent covers everything. All utilities, cable or satellite TV, internet or WiFi and use of development amenities.

All the space, warmth, central air and privacy of home without getting in anyone’s way.

Furnished rentals are flexible too.

If your home is finished early, end your rental early. If the project runs over, stay for another month or two.

Just let us know in plenty of time and we’ll handle the rest.

You get your own account manager and have nothing to worry about. We handle the booking, liaise with the landlord, handle utilities and services.

All you need to do is turn up, collect the keys and unpack.

If you’re building your own house and need somewhere safe and warm to stay, furnished housing is the answer!

Furnished temporary housing for medical treatment and recovery

If you need to stay close to a hospital for 30 days or more, renting a furnished apartment makes perfect sense.

They are also fully furnished and equipped and fully managed so you don’t have to do a thing.

Many furnished temporary houses or apartments are in Downtown areas, financial districts and medical districts.

We can also source furnished rentals in rural or quieter areas if you need total rest!

Advantages of furnished housing for medical needs

We outlined some key advantages of using furnished temporary housing above, but let’s dig a little deeper.

Here are some key advantages of saying in a furnished temporary housing:

Great locations

Many furnished temporary housing options will be in business or medical districts, or Downtown. This will often be ideal for getting to the hospital or clinic for treatment, monitoring or visiting.

They will also be close to stores, amenities, transport links and anything else you might need during your stay. (take a look at our locations here)

Turnkey convenience

Furnished temporary housing comes with everything you could need during your stay.

That will include kitchenware, bedding, towels, cutlery and everything you have in your own home. All will be clean and ready to use.

You don’t need to pack anything but your clothes as everything will be in your apartment waiting for you.

Most furnished temporary housing also includes utilities, cable or satellite TV and internet, so there’s one less thing to worry about.

Value for money

If you’re staying for longer than 30 days, furnished temporary housing makes perfect sense.

It’s cheaper than hotels, around 50% cheaper in many cases. It’s also cheaper than many hospital properties or property partnerships.

Rents are fully inclusive too. The price you see is the price you pay. All bills, utilities, trash and any other service you require will be included in that price.

A place of your own

Whether you’re recovering from a procedure, being treated for something, convalescing, recovering or rehabilitating, there’s nothing like having your own space.

The same is true if you’re here to be with family or friends while they are going through something.

A private space, private entrance, your own bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and seating area. Many properties will also have a balcony or patio for a little outside space.

Hotels are great when you’re on vacation but they aren’t a way of life for longer periods.

Whether you’re a doctor or nurse, patient or family, if you need to stay away from home for an extended period, furnished temporary housing is the perfect option!

Corporate housing is a vital part of our economy. A cost-effective alternative to hotels for people working or studying away from home for periods of 300 days or more.

But what exactly is corporate housing? Who uses corporate accommodation? Why is a corporate rental better than a hotel?

All these questions and more will be answered in this post!

What is corporate housing?

First let’s start with the big question. What exactly is corporate housing?

Corporate housing is a type of accommodation specifically designed for people working or studying away from home. They are usually fully furnished and equipped apartments, townhomes, homes or penthouses in central or residential locations.

All corporate housing will include all appliances, cutlery, crockery, bed linen, towels, cable or satellite TV, internet and everything else you need to begin living.

The idea is to provide a high quality space that’s safe, easy to get to and that requires zero effort on your part.

All you need to do is bring your suitcase. Everything else should be here waiting for you.

Locations will typically be apartment developments or gated developments that offer all the benefits you expect including pools, parking, fitness centers, business centers, social spaces and other features.

Who uses corporate accommodation?

Corporate rentals were originally designed for business travelers, hence the name. But more recently, we see nurses, doctors, executives, oil and gas workers, government contractors, construction crews, military and students staying in corporate housing.

For example, if your employer wants you to work away from home for any length of time, they would rent you a corporate apartment. If you were thinking of moving to a different office in a new city, you could use a corporate rental until you find your own.

Similarly, nurses and doctors on secondment or training, oil and gas workers needing temporary accommodation or government contractors fulfilling a temporary contract would also benefit from the convenience of turnkey accommodation.

We also provide corporate rentals for those who serve. Whether that’s secondment to a different base, extended training at another facility or extended temporary duty anywhere within the United States, a corporate rental can help.

While not exhaustive by any means, corporate accommodation is used by:

You get the idea. Anyone can use corporate accommodation if they have to stay away from home for any length of time.

We work with many insurance companies to provide cost-effective temporary accommodation to families and individuals who need a place to stay due to fire, construction work or natural disaster.

We also accommodate families relocating to a new part of the country. Being able to book long term with a predictable monthly cost that includes everything is a genuine benefit if you’re trying to find somewhere to live but don’t know how long it will take!

How is corporate housing better than a hotel?

There are a number of ways corporate housing is better than a hotel so we had better keep this concise!

Hotels are great and we don’t want to minimize their value but they are not designed for longer stays.

Want to go on vacation for a couple of weeks somewhere warm and sunny? A hotel is perfect.

Want to stay for longer or stay within a city but not by the airport? A hotel isn’t your best option.

A corporate apartment is.

Here are some of the many benefits of corporate accommodation compared to a hotel.


For stays of over 30 days, hotels can be very expensive. Even hotels at the budget end of the market soon become untenable when you’re looking at longer stays.

Plus, hotels nickel and dime you for everything they can, which just adds to the expense!

Fully inclusive

Corporate housing is fully inclusive. That means the price you see is the price you pay. That price will include TV, internet, bills, use of facilities and anything that’s going on within the development.

All you’ll need to buy is food and general basics for living.

Some corporate apartments can also include housekeeping, cleaning service and even grocery deliveries!

More space to call your own

This is kind of two benefits in one. A corporate apartment is exactly that, a full apartment with bedrooms, bathroom, living area, kitchen and perhaps a patio or balcony.

It will be much more spacious than your average hotel room and offer all the space you need to live.

It’s also your own space. You’ll have your own front door and your own space to live, relax, kick back and breathe a little.

Both of those things are significant advantages over a hotel room. Try staying in a hotel for something other than a vacation and see how long it is before the walls start closing in. It won’t be long if our own experience is anything to go by!

The next time you’re working or studying away from home for 30 days or more, don’t suffer an airport hotel or budget motel.

Rent a fully serviced corporate apartment in a location that suits, often for less than your hotel!

Despite everything that’s happened in the last couple of years, construction is still a booming industry. Demand is high and supply is low so more workers than ever before are traveling the country with their work.

If you’re looking for somewhere to stay that offers more than budget motels or hotels, you should definitely consider a corporate apartment.

Despite their name, they are designed for anyone, working in any industry. If you’re a construction worker following contracts and need somewhere to stay for 30 days or more, they could be just what you’re looking for.

Finding corporate housing is easier than you might think, especially as we have done some of the hard work for you.

What follows is a list of leading corporate housing providers that have a range of accommodation suitable for traveling construction workers.

We hope it helps!

ACRS is another quality provider of corporate accommodation suitable for traveling construction workers. They have a range of fully equipped apartments, townhomes and other property types across South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia, Charleston, Columbia, Greenville and other cities in that region.

The company provides 24/7 customer support and while they don’t have national coverage, the quality of the properties they do offer makes them worth checking out.

Corporate Housing by Owner

Corporate Housing by Owner does things a little differently. Rather than being a company that provides the accommodation, it’s a website that enables owners of rental accommodation to advertise.

There’s a real mix of apartments types and locations but all offer turnkey convenience and either central or rural locations plus use of whatever amenities the property has.

InTown Suites

InTown Suites is a smaller provider of corporate apartments suitable for traveling construction workers. They provide accommodation for up to 6 guests in locations across the country, ideal for the traveling contractor.

Properties are predominantly apartments but they do offer some townhomes or villas too. Prices are fairly keen and the customer services is responsive and helpful. Overall, a good provider to try.

After working from home for so long, we have gotten very used to sharing our workspace with man’s best friend. So, it can be quite the wrench when you suddenly have to go away for work and contemplate leaving them behind.

All is not lost though, as there are corporate housing providers throughout the U.S. that actively welcome dogs and cats.

There may be local restrictions on breeds and sizes of dogs and the number of pets you can have, but that’s normal. Otherwise, you are free to bring your pet with you for however long you stay.

Pet friendly corporate housing

If you’re looking for corporate housing providers that include pets in some or all of their properties, these are the ones to try.

1.   Blu Corporate Housing

Blu Corporate Housing has nationwide coverage and provides over 65,000 furnished rentals. It covers popular cities like Houston, Dallas, San Diego, Palo Alto, Tampa, Jacksonville, Cleveland, Los Angeles, Memphis, Redmond, Washington D. C. and many more.

Many properties featured on the Blu Corporate Housing website are pet friendly. You’ll need to check with the company about specific properties, but many of those features in major cities accept pets.

1.   Short Term Housing

Short Term Housing is another corporate housing provider that features lots of pet friendly rentals. The website has over 30,000 corporate rentals in over 6,000 locations across the country. A significant portion of those are pet friendly.

Search or browse locations and properties or contact the company direct for specifics on pets, breeds, numbers and more. A good number of their furnished rentals are pet friendly so you’ll definitely find something!

2.   Travelers Haven

Travelers Haven are a well-established corporate housing and short term housing specialist with over 32,000 apartments and homes on their books. Many of which are pet friendly.

The overall quality of accommodation at Travelers Haven is very high and many welcome furry friends too. The account managers are all familiar with working with pets and owners and can usually recommend apartments for you and your furry friends.

3.   Corporate Housing by Owner

Corporate Housing by Owner is a bit like Airbnb for corporate rentals. All properties are listed by their respective owners and bookings are handled accordingly. There is a wide range of properties and property types on the website, covering most US cities.

You will have to drill down into each property listing but those that welcome pets should say so in the description, features or in the rates section. A good number of those we tried welcomed dogs, cats or both.

4.   AHI Corporate Housing

AHI Corporate Housing seems similar to Travelers Haven in terms of quality of the website and breadth of properties covered. There are thousands of corporate rentals of all shapes and sizes covering most conceivable needs.

Like these other corporate housing websites, you’ll need to check the individual property listing for the specifics but many of those we checked allowed pets.

5.   National Corporate Housing

National Corporate Housing is exactly that, a national provider of corporate housing. It has thousands of properties across the entire United States and covers corporate, military and all the other frequent users of furnished rentals.

Many properties featured within the website are pet friendly. Quite a few are cat friendly while a good portion of the others welcome dogs too. There aren’t quite as many pet friendly properties as Blu Corporate Housing for example, but enough to make them worth checking out.

6.   Corporate Housing Store

Corporate Housing Store has a relatively basic website but the quality of its properties is great. The company offers thousands of apartments and townhomes across the country, in every state. Many of which are pet friendly.

Like many of these furnished rental websites, you’ll need to check within each listing or contact a member of staff for specifics.

7. is another national provider or short term rentals, including for your pets. It has thousands of houses and apartments in every state and many welcome pets.

The website even has a pet friendly filter, which many of these others don’t, making it easier to find corporate accommodation for you and your pet. A significant portion of those we checked, welcomed pets too.

8.   Weichert Corporate Housing

Weichert Corporate Housing has many thousands of furnished rentals on their books, a large portion of which welcome pets. The range of properties includes houses, apartments, townhomes and more in most major cities.

While the website isn’t the most intuitive, speak to someone or drill down into individual apartments and you’ll soon find a mention of pets.

9.   VIP Corporate Housing

VIP Corporate Housing is our final corporate housing provider that welcomes pets. The company has thousands of properties in most major cities and many of them welcome cats and/or dogs.

You will have to find out yourself by exploring the property details of each listing but pet friendliness should be mentioned in the listing.

Pet friendly furnished accommodation

The exact nature of pet-friendliness depends entirely on the development you choose.

For some, being pet friendly merely means allowing a pet into the apartment. For others, it can mean having a dog park, pet wash, pet walking service while you’re out and other services too.

You will pay extra of course. That will usually include a damage deposit in case your pet damages the property. Some apartments also charge ‘pet rent’, which can be cheap, or not great value depending on where you’re staying.

Breed restrictions

Some apartment complexes will have breed restrictions for dogs. It makes sense to check the individual development you’re planning to say in, but in general, the following breeds are often prevented from staying:

  • American Pit bull
  • Rottweiler
  • Akita
  • Cane Corso
  • Presa Canario
  • Bull Mastiff
  • Staffordshire Terrier
  • Doberman
  • German Shepherd
  • Boxer
  • Alaskan Malamute
  • Huskie
  • Dalmatian
  • Chow Chow
  • Fila Brasileiro
  • Wolf hybrids

It’s unfair that breeds are restricted in this way as all dogs are different, but those mentioned above more commonly cause trouble than others.

Your corporate apartment will come fully furnished and equipped, include all utilities, internet, heating, TV and everything you need to begin living right away.

Traveling with work doesn’t mean being away from your pet as well as your home. As long as your schedule and destination support it, there’s absolutely no reason why you cannot travel as a family!

No visit to the capital would be complete without a fascinating tour of some of the buildings that make the administration of our great country work. Fortunately, many of them offer public access to some or all areas depending on the time of day and year.

We have collected a range of the more popular government buildings in Washington D.C. so you can see just what’s on offer when you’re in the city.

Capitol Visitor Center

The Capitol Visitor Center is a great place to explore and learn about the Capitol building and how it came to be. There is a gallery, two theaters, cafeteria, gift shop and plenty of things to see and do. From here you can join a tour of the Capitol but will have to book these in advance or get there early to get them on a first come first served basis.

White House Visitor Center

The White House Visitor Center is another reception center that offers a lot for tourists. It has a lot to see and explore, a 30-minute video to watch and exhibits to see. There are also tours available if you book in advance, which are well worth doing.

The White House

The White House offers tours if you ask your member of Congress. You will need a group of 10 to be able to tour, but it’s well worth the effort if you want to see places that most people never get to see. You will need to book at least a month in advance and will need to contact your Representative or Senator’s office to arrange.

The Pentagon

The Pentagon is one of the most famous landmarks in the country. It’s also one of the largest office buildings in the world, housing over 23,000 government employees of the Department of Defense. The office will provide guided tours run by serving officers if you book well in advance.

U.S. Supreme Court

The U.S. Supreme Court is somewhere everyone should visit to see justice in action. It’s open to the public October through April and is free to enter with a ticket. There is a visitors area with exhibits and history, but some of the public galleries allow you to watch the court in action if in session. If not in session, lectures are given in the courtrooms which are well worth a visit.

The Library of Congress

The Library of Congress isn’t just for rich students. Anyone can visit the world’s largest library and see what is in here. There are a range of exhibits, talks, concerts, displays, films, lectures and events that are held regularly throughout the year.
