FAQs for renting a room in the Bay Area, California

Why rent a room with Bungalow?

Bungalow doesn’t just list rooms for rent - we source, renovate, and operate all our homes to provide renters with the best possible experience from end to end.

Beautiful homes. Incredible locations. Pricing that makes sense. Find a room in a home that hits the sweet spot between good quality and sensible pricing. Bungalow homes are hand-selected across major markets to match your lifestyle.

Find it. Try it. Feel 100% before you rent. Love where you live or you're free to go. 2-week trials, transfers to other in-network Bungalow homes, and flexible lease terms all designed to help you rent with confidence.

Living in good company. Independently. Enjoy the benefits of living together with the freedom of operating solo. Use our Meet & Greet chat to select roommates with similar lifestyles. Then, sign and pay separately within our app. No one's on the hook for anyone else.

Are utilities included in Bungalow Room Rentals?

For the vast majority of our properties, Bungalow partners with the nation’s best utility management provider, Conservice, to manage, separate, and bill utilities (water, trash, sewer, electricity & gas) to an individual home. You will only pay for the exact amount your home uses and Bungalow takes care of splitting those costs evenly between you and your roommates.

Are Bungalow Room Rentals furnished?

Bungalow’s Shared Homes include furnished common areas (living, dining, and kitchens), along with complementary Smart TVs, kitchen essentials, and free monthly cleanings! The only furniture you'll need to move in is whatever you'd like to put in your bedroom.

Are Bungalow Room Rentals pet friendly?

Some Bungalow Homes are pet friendly, while others are not. You can find pet information by clicking on a particular home. That said, emotional support animals (ESAs) are accepted in every Bungalow home.

The Bay Area contains many forms of public transportation, from BART to ferries, but it all comes down to what you need in your area.

If you live in neighboring towns, then different forms of public transportation will be more convenient for you depending on how far away they are from your everyday routes.

San Francisco is home to diverse neighborhoods and scenic views. The waterfront offers extensive cycling and hiking opportunities, and an old-fashioned cable car can take you up and down the steep hills in the city.

For those seeking more foodie adventures, there's plenty of that in this beautifully varied city too — from salted caramel ice cream at Bi-Rite Market & Creamery to French toast with hazelnut butter custard at Nutella Café tucked inside Ferry Building Marketplace.
