Travel Nurse Housing – Why Choose Corporate Housing?


Your experience should be nothing like staying in a crowded hotel or extended stay suite. For traveling nurses, corporate housing is your home away from home. These comfortable accommodations should be nestled in secure communities and tastefully furnished to suit your needs. Living in corporate housing gives you more than peace of mind; it eases the burden of basic chores and saves you money on everyday expenses in many ways.

Corporate Housing for Travel Nurses

Fully furnished housing for traveling nurses makes it easy to feel at home.

One way in which corporate housing generates measurable savings to their guests is through providing you with a fully-equipped kitchen. These kitchens contain full-sized refrigerators, stoves, and built-in microwaves. The ability to choose whether you want to eat in or dine out is important. Without this choice, you are forced to eat out at least 7 days a week, which will become a tremendous expense.  You will save up to $500 per month or as much as 50% on your food bill alone.

Valet-dry cleaning at hotels or coin laundry machines at extended stay suites are costly options and get in the way of everyday life. As a nurse, your uniform will need to be washed regularly and thoroughly to eliminate the germs and dirt you come into contact with daily. Should you really have to wait to wash your clothes and then be charged for that expense too?  While searching for housing consider the importance of having a washer and dryer located in your own apartment.  This will save you at least another $50-$75 per month and provide you more convenience and flexibility as well.

As a travel nurse, your housing needs are different and the finest travel nurse housing providers underst and that and do their best to satisfy those necessities.

The global marketplace makes many demands on workers. Moving to a new city for a month or two is often an expected part of job performance. After a long work day, who wants to spend an hour figuring how to work the cable box? Where is the best grouper dinner, beach hangout or the best wine selection? Is there a kayak launch for a downtown river tour? For Avenida guests, all these small but important details are attended to – help and answers are just a phone call away. Whether they need the name of a gourmet grocery, advice on reputable daycare, or recommendations on the right restaurant for a special occasion, the Avenida guest has no worries. And they know that Avenida proprietors Claudia and Dan Gorman treat every customer as the only guest. How is this possible? It’s possible because a unique story that begins in Brazil and comes together in Tampa, resulting in a relocation service that combines South American hospitality and North American efficiency. The story begins in the mid-90’s when a mutual friend introduced Brazilian native Claudia to Marine Corps sergeant Dan, then stationed in Rio de Janeiro. The couple married and started a family, regularly visiting their favorite vacation spot -Tampa. The family flourished over the next ten years as Claudia’s Brazilian hospitality and people skills made it possible for her to build a successful cleaning business. Meanwhile, Dan became a Marine officer, developing the virtues that would later serve his young business: integrity, adaptability, discipline and commitment to the highest standards. When he left active duty, Dan and Claudia knew one thing: they wanted to move to Tampa. Soon after arriving, they recognized that their unique skills could help others who were temporarily or permanently relocating to the Bay area. And so Avenida was born. Avenida guests enjoy all the benefits that come from working with a locally owned business operated with international sophistication. Each Avenida home comes with a customized welcome book giving in-depth information about goods and services specific to the area.

    Great post! Corporate housing is good for a number of professions, especially traveling nurses! Short term housing has many more amenities than extended stay areas or hotels, and have really competitive pricing.

    I know that I’ve had a lot of luck with short term housing when I called Manley Management. I’ve also stayed with them in Houston and it was a good experience.
