House-sharing with IKOAB

IKOAB house-sharing is a collective, flexible and all-inclusive living experience, for young professionals who don’t want to die of boredom or have to compromise their quality of life.

Community

Student house-sharing? You're too old for that. A studio flat alone? As regards comfort and atmosphere, maybe for another time. Instead you should try living with young adults who are like you and share the same values!

By choosing an IKOAB house share, you will be in a high-level sharing arrangement, without having to surrender your privacy.

Nicely fitted out communal spaces will make your interactions friendlier and IKOAB regularly organises events for its members, so that you can meet other [IKO]-livers from other houses and forge some nice friendships.

Housing

No one can deny that our housing units are stylish. Just imagine: a large former manor house fully refurbished to suit today's tastes, elegantly furnished and fully equipped and located in a trendy urban centre.

Modern communal spaces are cleverly designed to facilitate communal life, while your private room offers you a bubble of tranquillity.

Once you stick your head outdoors, everything is within arm’s reach almost: transport, bars, shops, restaurants… In short, it has urban intensity with all the comfort of a five-star home.

Easy living

Life is hard enough as it is, no need to make thing even more difficult. Your rent include the bills for water, electricity, heating, the Internet, home insurance and cleaning of communal spaces (weekly) and your room (every two weeks).

IKOAB is responsible for sorting out the paperwork and maintenance, while you are free to enjoy yourself. If you have any problems, contact our team who are always hard at work and they will come and sort things out. Don’t forget that our flexible contracts are adapted to all your needs: minimum length 6 months, can be extended for up to 3 years.

Quite frankly, isn’t the IKOAB life wonderful?

Included in this price:

Your shared housing unit

Along with other young professionals, share a vast renovated home in a lively district. Great laughs, debates, Franglais, team spirit and morning huffs… Loft Story, only better!

Your private space

You have a fully furnished private room here, which means you have nothing to actually move in. There is of course a bathroom so that you can pamper yourself – private or shared with your housemates.

Cosy communal areas

It has to be said, our architects are very good. Everything has already been furnished and decorated with style. The communal spaces offer all the essentials for chilling, co-working and generally feeling right at home.

A kitchen fit for a chef

Lactose intolerant, a brunch lover or instant noodle addict... The shared kitchen – fully equipped with oven, fridge, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, coffee machine, etc. – will satisfy all your needs.

An outdoor area in the middle of the city

The house always has a pleasant outdoor area so that you can get some fresh air, read a bit of a book in the sun and spend some nice time drinking or trying to re-pot some stunted basil.

All inclusive

The price indicated includes your rent and share of the bills. These cover water, electricity, heating, television subscription, cleaning & maintenance, as well as Wi-Fi access. High speed Internet is life.

Cleanliness guaranteed

An external company cleans the communal areas every week, and the private areas once every two weeks. Beyond that, you will be old enough and grown up enough: it’s up to you to keep your housing unit clean.

Rapid response assistance service

Does it make you mad to have to wait on the phone? Us too. The slightest problem and you should contact our maintenance team via your user space and we will take action as quickly as possible.

New friends

When you arrive you will be sharing the house with a group of young adults from all walks of life. You will get along right away, since you all have the same expectations: freedom, flexibility, respect for others and a good vibe.

F.A.Q.

  • So that no one needs to feel like a third wheel, we accept a maximum of one couple per house

    Use the ”couple” filter to see our availability.

    Contact us for more information
  • Sorry, but we do not accept any furry, feathered or scaled animals within our houses. And no Sphinxes either, nice try.

  • Before moving in, you sign a house-sharing charter. It stipulates that you must tell your housemates first if you want to invite friends over. However, your friends are allowed to become their friends, as long as the new friends are nice and their presence does not disturb life in the community and everyone’s privacy.

    A minimum education. Your friends, romantic interests and lovers may not sleep in your room more than 7 days a month (whether consecutive or otherwise) nor may they squat on the premises all day and night, or the assistance department will activate the ultra high tech ejector mattress.

  • It’s not that you can, you MUST. All tenants are legally obliged to declare their actual residential address. It’s the law. Come on now, you’ve cut the umbilical cord, Mummy was fed up of having to sort all your mail for you anyway. Go to the municipality with your biggest smile, your identity papers and your contract (a copy is provided in your user space).

  • Maintenance problems include all problems linked to equipment, furniture or the general condition of the house (heating, electricity, water, internet, lights, etc.).

    If you have any problems, it’s no use calling your parents or your mate who’s a psychic. Instead you should go to your user space and select the tab “Report an issue”. Describe the precise nature of the problem and possibly also provide photos. Once you have reported your problem, the team will respond to your request as quickly as possible. You will be notified of any intervention appointment and you must check afterwards whether the problem has been adequately resolved.
