Top 5 Bachelor Friendly Residential Localities in MumbaiAugust 3, 2018
Finding a flat for rent for a bachelor is like one of the hardest job in most of the cities in India. And in mumbai, where the land is scarce and people are living in sq ft, it is even more difficult. To be frank, we do not know, if its legal or not, to turn down a bachelor for renting a flat, but that’s how the situation is. The question still remains, if these guys from college or unmarried employees in various organizations cannot be given places to rent, then where are these people suppose to live. We did a small research on a couple of well known property and housing sites, and have come up with a list of places, where there are ample properties listed in various budgets, various sizes, different furnishing types and available to be rented by bachelors ( single men, single women).
Thane west tops our list with around 800 listing for bachelors. Thane is one of the prime locations in mumbai currently and is part of central mumbai. The locality is having great infrastructure with only thing lacking is local train transport within its areas. Even the lack of train connectivity within would subside once the approved metro is built. The region has good malls, top restaurants, best shopping areas, water parks, multiplex cinemas, highways, ac bus transport as its offering to bachelors. The place is also not very costly and should very much fit the budget of most individuals. Bachelor Listings : 767
Rent Range: 10k – 50k
2. Kopar Khairane (Navi Mumbai)
The entire Navi Mumbai belt is relatively new and hence you would find a lot of accommodations available to bachelors in this region. Although, there are a lot of places in navi mumbai providing renting options to bachelors, Kopar Khairane tops the list and offers a reasonable connectivity to different places in mumbai. Also, with the recent trend of companies moving out from mumbai mainland and shifting to navi mumbai, kopar khairane would be a very good place to live. The place might not have the best of malls, hospitals, restuarants, but it is slowly picking up in its offerings. The rent should also be well within budget.
Bachelor Listings : 637
Rent Range : 8k – 60k
For those who want to live right in the centre of the city, Andheri(e) would be the best choice, as it will offer you everything : restaurants, offices, malls, metro, railway station, airport, hotels, disco, beach, gym at close distances. However, the apartments might not be very spacious, as its in the heart of the city and is comparatively more populated.
Bachelor Listings : 569
Rent Range : 8.9k -120k
The place lies somewhere between the western and central mumbai. This place has developed recently and is one of its kind in its architecture. Sprawling with lot of companies, food outlets and parks, this place is favorite among bachelors. Its close proximity to IIT Mumbai(powai) gives it an extra edge. Even a lot of startups now call this place their home. We would say that powai is a very well planned city with fair connectivity to all locations in the city. Recently, the place has seen a rise in the renting prices and the rent here would be slightly costlier than thane and navi mumbai in general.
Bachelor Listings: 503
Rent Range: 8.2k – 500k
Chembur is part of eastern mumbai and is the first place to have the monorail in mumbai(or perhaps India). Although, situated at a distance from the centre, its a well known area to stay in mumbai. It has the most famous bombay presidency golf(bpgc) club, tata institute of social science(tiss) and bhabha atomic research centre(barc). The rent range is slightly on a premium side in chembur. We would suggest moving to this place, if you have your work location nearby.
Bachelor Listings: 755
Rent Range: 22k-180k

The other options are andheri(w), airoli, bandra(w), malad(w), goregaon(w), ghansoli, kharghar, seawoods. You should first try for properties without an agent/broker and then choose the best type of accommodation based on your requirement. If you are comfortable, you might also try some paying guest accommodations in these areas.
