Lets first take you through the various kinds of furnished apartments that are available in Gurgaon…Typically, there are three kinds of furnished accommodations that are available to rent in Gurgaon. Firstly, Homes that are being lived in by the owners, who have a job change and are moving away from the City. Secondly, homes furnished by owners, who have done it to improve their ROI on the rentals and thirdly, homes done up by Service Providers of Accommodation in Gurgaon, who are in the business of providing quality furnished accommodation with add on services in Gurgaon.
Furnished Apartments Listed by Owners
Lets discuss the First Category which are homes lived in by owners who are moving away from the city- These homes would have a lot of character of the owners, considering the fact that they have been done by the owners for themselves and not for the purpose of rentals, typically, these homes would be over crowded in most cases, considering that people tend to acquire things over a period of time and things just keep getting added on to the apartment, so they would have a deeper character, the downside would be that these are not neutral homes, they are homes with deep character, so they may or may not appeal to all and may or may not feel home to all…
Furnished Apartments Listed by Landlords
The Second Category is homes that the owner of an apartment has added furniture to increase the ROI on the property. Now, these are the ones that we found to be the worst of the lot, the reason being that they have absolutely no character, they would typically have cheap quality furniture placed in them with a sole purpose of getting increased rent. These of course had the worst feel to them when we visited them, our findings were that they were created from the brain and not from the heart space, so our research team really saw nothing nice in these, although you may get them much cheaper than the other two categories, but not sure if you would be happy living in such homes.

This category of homes come with some distinct advantages…firstly, the fact that the organization letting them out are in the business of property management and rentals, they make sure that the apartments are tidy, neat and clean and also equipped with all the basic gadgets and amenities needed. Apart from this, the service providers are also in a position to provided add-ons like Daily/Weekly Cleaning Services, Maid Services, Deep Cleaning Services, Trouble Shooting Services etc into the package, which works out well for the Expats.

Quality Furnished Accommodation in Gurgaon
On careful research of the various service providers of serviced/furnished apartments in Gurgaon, our team found some interesting facts that could potentially help expats moving to Gurgaon find better homes in Gurgaon. Our team found that not all service providers are creating homes that have a character, in fact, most of them are doing homes with very mundane quality of furnishings and not really creating homes that feel like home…another fact that our team reported is that not all service providers are trustworthy and dependable, how annoying can it get if you signed up, paid the advances etc. only to be left high and dry without support…but all was not lost…in the research our team did bump into a new startup that is trying to set a new benchmark in quality accommodation in Gurgaon. They are fast growing, new and enthusiastic about providing quality all the way, be it the furnishings, aesthetics, functionality as well as the service part.

In an interview with one of the Founders of VAYA Homes…Harpreet Singh Thukral said …”We researched the market well before launching VAYA Homes, our realization was that the city of Gurgaon had grown not only in terms of size, market or opportunity, but also on the influx of expats moving to Gurgaon, however, the sad part was the low levels of quality accommodation, commitment and service being offered to our foreign guests. We saw the opportunity and with humble beginnings, we have slowly, but surely secured a reasonable market share through consistent quality delivery of what we like to call….”Homes with a Soul”.
