If you've ever dreamt of living in a massive house with roommates just like you're on a reality TV show, then you can do that in B.C. We found a Craigslist ad for a split Vancouver mansion rental on the West Side where you can live for $1,000 rent per month. The "community-first co-living" situation is ideal if you want to save money and live large.
Wondering who's fit to call a mansion like this home? "The right fit will be respectful, clean, easy-going young professionals or mature students... that want a nice and comfortable place to live," reads the Craigslist posting.
Rent for a private bedroom is between $1,000 and $1,350. Rooms with a private en-suite bathroom are $1,500 to $1,700.
There's even a private bachelor garden suite with its own living room and kitchen for $1,650.
Some of those rental prices might not sound like a bargain, but there are a ton of perks included.
Rooms are furnished, internet is included, there's a home gym, and bi-weekly professional cleaning services come to the house.
When you factor in the luxury lifestyle you can live, the price is more than worth it. Considering that $2,000 a month in rent doesn't get you far in the city, this could be an alternative arrangement that works for you.
This is just one of the three kitchens inside the mansion. If $1,000 per month would end up saving you money in the long term, then you could even eat out at restaurants more often and hardly be in one of these fancy kitchens.
The mansion isn't wild — it's not set into a cliff or anything dramatic like that — but it's an impressive house.
Imagine having a friend over for movie night and they see that you're living like a multi-millionaire.
"We are a hard-working couple looking for 5 other individuals or couples that want to live in a 7000 ft property 7 bedroom, 8 bathroom, 3 kitchen house in a community-first co-living setup," reads the Craigslist ad.
If you want to join, you'll need to fill out an application form, have references and a damage deposit. They're also asking for a credit check and pay stub as proof of employment.
