The Benefits of Corporate Housing

Corporate housing / furnished rentals

Corporate housing is a popular living option for businesses and their employees, who find themselves in need of temporary accommodation. It’s also an ideal choice for individuals who have been displaced due to a fire, flood or other type of insurance claim.

By offering fully-equipped, move-in-ready properties that are carefully designed to meet the needs of any traveller, corporate housing can save companies and individuals time and money. Rather than rent an expensive hotel room that doesn’t provide the comfort required for a stay of 30+ nights, corporate housing provides an alternative. There is no need to buy or bring furniture, kitchen utensils, and other necessities. It is all provided.

The right corporate housing options provide quality accommodations that can help travellers feel at home so they can focus on the business ahead.

Convenience and Flexibility

Furnished apartments for corporate housing are a perfect solution for organizations and employees with short-term housing needs. They provide convenience, flexibility, and reasonable costs. Most providers offer accommodations complete with furniture, electronics, kitchenware and linens, high-speed internet and more, eliminating the need to plan ahead and bring excess items.

A Variety of Accommodation Types

Corporate housing can range from traditional apartments to high-end executive suites, townhomes, detached properties and more. Most importantly is that they are located in an area that makes sense for the individual, while being fully equipped with everything that will be required during the stay.

Excellent Amenities

Many corporate housing options are located in new buildings and complexes that are complete with fitness centers, business centers, swimming pools, common areas, meeting rooms, game rooms, and much more. Everything an employee or individual needs to be comfortable while away on a work assignment.

Cost Savings

Corporate housing is an excellent way to decrease costs and increase employee comfort over stays of 30+ nights. In Vancouver, furnished rentals are tax exempt when booked for 30+ nights. Nightly rates are typically much less expensive than a hotel room and provide more privacy. They can also be rented for longer durations than hotels which could translate into even greater savings.

When compared with traditional long-term rentals, furnished apartments offer the convenience of all-inclusive pricing and move-in-ready accommodation. They’re an ideal choice that offer considerable cost savings over other alternatives.

Privacy and Security

While every company is different, HighStreet Accommodations offers corporate housing in Vancouver and throughout the Lower Mainland in safe and secure buildings. All properties are carefully curated to ensure high standards of living and security which are expectations of our clients and guests.

Our condos buildings for example are modern and require programmed access via FOB and key, ensuring peace of mind for all of our residents. In addition, many buildings have onsite concierge during business hours and/or overnight. Our team is reachable 24/7 via our emergency line. With HighStreet Accommodations, Corporate Housing in Vancouver is safe and private.

Stress-Free Move-In Process

A stress-free move-in process begins before even being shown the apartment. Many corporate housing providers will offer a self check-in which is a great option for many corporate guests. At HighStreet, we also offer to have one of our friendly resident service representatives to meet you at the property and provide a full tour. They provide clients with an extensive tour of the new “home away from home” as well as all building amenities, allowing them to acclimate quickly and confidently. From offering key information about how the building works to showing off apartment features, they’re there to ensure that residents begin their stay feeling comfortable and at ease.

Great Locations

Corporate housing is primarily dedicated to meeting the needs of business travelers and those that are working nearby. Properties tend to be conveniently located close to local destinations and corporate offices. Whether it’s a corporate suite, an extended stay apartment complex, or a detached home, corporate housing normally provides easy access to restaurants, shops, and entertainment. HighStreet Accommodations features a “walk score” on all of our unit pages so potential residents can view and understand what amenities are nearby and easily accessible. Since we also offer 200+ properties throughout Vancouver and the Lower Mainland, clients can often choose a location that is within walking distance of their existing home or office.

Professional Cleaning Services

Many corporate housing providers also provide professional cleaning services inclusive of the rate. It’s another advantage for corporate travellers who are expecting a level of service similar to a hotel. Most providers will offer a weekly or biweekly cleaning service but there is usually the option to increase the number of cleanings depending on the client’s requirements.


Corporate housing is an excellent option for businesses that need to accommodate employees and guests on a long-term basis. The cost savings, privacy, security, stress-free move-in process and great locations make it the ideal choice over traditional long term rentals or hotels. Whether you are looking to save money on business travel costs or just want more comfort during extended stays away from home, corporate housing can provide solutions tailored specifically towards your needs. With so many advantages available, there’s no reason not to consider this affordable alternative when planning trips of 30+ nights out of town.
