1 of 5 rooms in a house in which I live in and work out of as well. This room shares a bathroom with another room. It's in a nice and safe area, walking distance to many places (restaurants, grocery stores, beach, airport).

The space
I'm looking for roommates in my co-living house! Experience Benin in the comfort of a large house in a nice area of town. Interact with myself, other roommates, and local employees. I work mostly from home running La Distillerie Beninoise which produces Tambour, a premium version of sodabi (palm liquor).

The room itself has a double-sized bed with plenty of space for luggage. There is a fan in the room. A mosquito net is provided. The door can be locked and the house has a 24 hr. guard service as is typical for Cotonou. There is no hot water, but it is hot enough that this isn't usually an issue.

Guest access
Guests will have access to the rest of the house including the kitchen, living-room, and terrace. Wifi is included and is quite fast by Benin standards.

Other things to note
A basic cell phone with a local SIM can be rented, if desired.

Laundry can be hand-done by the cleaning lady for a small fee.

Location

Cotonou, Littoral, Benin

In Cocotiers (Haie Vive), the house is situated in one of the nicest areas of Cotonou, and in walking distance to many supermarkets, restaurants, bars, clubs, the beach, and even the airport (but don't worry, there aren't many flights each day).

During your stay
We can interact as little or much as you would like. I work from home and am pretty busy, but I or my employees are more than happy to help direct you around town, pick you up (or send someone to pick you up) from the airport, and give suggestions on things to do around town or in the country.
