As travelers ourselves, we understand how important it is that your home away from home feels, well, homey. When you’re on the road for a long time (and especially when work is part of the equation) small details make a big difference. Simple things like the ability to cook eggs in the morning the exact way you like them can be surprisingly comforting when you’re in a foreign environment.
You’ll submit your housing preferences during onboarding and you can update them throughout the year. Style of accommodations vary (much as you might imagine when apartment-hopping across three continents), but you’ll always have a private bedroom, a kitchen or kitchenette, linens and towels, and the opportunity to prioritize and express your comfort preferences, which we will do our best to meet. You’ll have air conditioning or heating in destinations where temperatures are extreme.
A few variables include: apartment size, common spaces, closets and storage space, desks, laundry or cleaning services, television and other electronics, building amenities, a safe for valuables, outdoor space, and view.
Some months you’ll be paired with flatmates, while during others you may have a place to yourself. When Remotes live together, everyone is guaranteed their own room, but bathrooms and common spaces may be shared. We accommodate flatmate preferences whenever possible.
While we can’t guarantee that your apartment internet will be strong enough for a weekend-long Netflix binge (the 24/7 workspace internet will always be strong enough for streaming and video calls), we ensure that every Remote Year residence has functional enough connectivity for browsing and checking email.
