Trying to find corporate housing – sight unseen – in an unfamiliar city can feel like quite the undertaking. 

Thankfully, you don’t have to go through it alone. There are companies that actually help you do it, for example Travelers Haven will take your must-haves, and find a list of options for you.

They’re familiar with the area, and have a wide range of properties to suit all sorts of needs. In the more populated areas such as the city, and beyond.

Best of all, they offer you this service for free.

In addition, there are a ton of perks of booking through them, including an option to customize your furnishings and space.

3.  Bring Your Must Haves

Aside from all your outdoor and work gear, bring the things that make you feel at home. This can be framed pictures of loved ones, a few of your favorite books… just some of those little extras that make your space feel extra inviting.

4. Settle In

As soon as you arrive, unpack your things. Hang up your jackets and coats. Look around and see where the fresh linens are kept, where the onsite washer and dryer are hidden. Search through the kitchen cupboards and drawers to familiarize yourself with the pots, pans, and appliances.

Set out the framed pics of you and your loved ones, and if you’re someone who enjoys plants or candles, invest in a few.

Even if you’re only going to be living in the home for a few months, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t make it feel like yours.

5. Explore the Neighborhood

Depending on the weather (or your tolerance to cold) walking around your neighborhood is an excellent way to familiarize yourself with everything it has to offer. 

When you’re on foot, you notice a lot more than when you’re driving.

Plus, it’s much easier to be spontaneous; pop into a brewery for a pint and appetizer, poke around in a bookstore clutching a nice warm latte.

Denver is surrounded by breathtaking beauty, so exploration needn’t be limited to just the city itself. There are plenty of hikes through nature just 30 minutes or so from the more congested area of downtown. Take advantage of the time you have there to get out and explore.

6.  Reset Your Routine

One of the best ways to take full advantage of relocating somewhere new is to use it as a chance to reset.

View your new space like a clean slate. Now that you’re here, you can create a new routine that incorporates habits and changes you’ve been wanting to implement, as soon as you arrive.

If you’ve been wanting to work out, make the onsite gym part of your daily routine.

If you’ve been wanting to try and cook more, stock the fridge with all the fresh ingredients you picked up at the farmers market, and stock the cabinet with your favorite herbs and spices.

Use this opportunity as a chance to reflect, and give yourself permission to try the things you’ve always wanted to do.


As you can see, there’s a number of ways you can maximize a new space and the changes it invites. The Mile High City is an excellent place to indulge in adventure, gain a new perspective, and have a great time while you’re at it.
