Well its not hard to find a house in cotonou.

Haiviv is the most elegance area in Cotonou. Prices start for 500-600$ can reach 3000 $

Tokpa for 180 - 700$

I only know those two areas prices since i was searching for a house to rent over there.

They need a copy of your passport as identification.

Try to bargain over the price most of them try to rent for high amount especially for new comers :/

if you want to find a house easily just go to the area you want to rent in and ask the locals if there are houses for rent and they you show you the rest.
