The problems in Kyai Mojo Rental Flats in Jepara, Indonesia, are building damages caused by the low-quality construction, weather/climate in coastal areas, and behaviors of occupants of rental flats that do not maintain and comply with regulations. This study aims to analyze the development form of liveable low-cost Rental Flats in Jobokuto, Jepara. This study applies a qualitative method of case study strategy with a single case design type. The validity of the data uses a triangulation approach obtained from a comparison between the results of field observations, interviews, and document review. The results showed that the construction of the Kyai Mojo Rental Flats to become livable could be done by (1) Improving quality through repairs and maintenance by the local government and managers; (2) Adaptation to climate changes that occur in coastal areas by planting vegetation and providing sunshade to minimize the impact of the coastal environment on building damage; and (3) Empowerment of low-cost rental flats occupants in managing and improving environmental quality through socialization.
