How can I find a place to live in Bahrain?


How can I find a place to live in Bahrain?
There aren’t many property websites in Bahrain, but the ones that are available are enough to give you an idea of the types of properties available in Bahrain. Bahrain Property World and Expatriates (Bahrain Housing Available Section) are a good starting point. You can also use the Housing in Bahrain section of this forum to post if you are looking for a place to rent in Bahrain or share.

As you will see when you start looking for properties, most places come fully furnished, however there are places that are semi-furnished or not-furnished. The rent usually includes the bills such as water, electricity and municipality tax so you don’t have to worry about them. However, if you come across any property that doesn’t include these, please ask them to be included. The key-point here is you can always bargain for what you need. Never be afraid to ask for an extra, such as satellite, Internet or more to be included in the rental amount.
