I have been to Mumbai once. I stayed at a flat in a residential apartment provided to my dad by his office. The place is called Napean Sea Road. Its a beautiful place, with a stunning view of ocean. There is a very famous catholic school nearby (don bosco??) and a famous Jain Temple.. and the place is damn rocking with all the facilities.

Hi West, you have to accept one thing. Rents are sky high in Bombay. So, if you want to save on rent, you shall have to spend of travel. I am not sure how many subscribers to this site use trains regularly, but a lot of Bombayites use this means of transport for daily journeys upwards of 30 km each way. I drive 60to 65 km each day which takes me 3to4 hours.
You have to first identify the location of your office. If its town proper, you can stay in the Western Suburbs or the Central Suburbs or New Bombay, of course being prepared to travel a lot (I live in the Western Suburbs). But if its in one of the suburbs, you are left with only that suburb to choose from, because stay in town would be out (wouldn't be budget) and travelling from one suburban route to another would be too time consuming.
So, if you give us some more information, more people would surely be able to help.

One office is in parel, dont know where the other one is. I dont like commuting much so may be stick to a high budget flat. I think parel, santa cruz are expensive areas, wonder what rent would be around for a 1 bedroom??

My office is also in Parel (Lower Parel actually which is west of the rail tracks) which is east of the tracks. This is mostly mills and factories and not particularly residential. Santa Cruz is about 12-14km from Parel, not too far by Bombay standards. I live in Kandivili and that is 30+km. Rent would be I suppose 10to12k in Santa Cruz. The thumb rule is that rent goes up as you move south towards town, with some particular happening areas commanding a premium. Kandivili rates are lower, 5to7k. So, if you are going to slog at work till late, no point splurging on a home very near office. Best is to come here, stay in the Company Guest house for a while and then decide after witnessing it all.

Exclamation Mumbai house hunting primer

Actually inspite of all that stories about how costly the houses in Mumbai are (ok, they are so!) the fact is even Bangalore is as costly. So do not worry to much on that aspect. Most of the houses on rent are given on 11 months LL. There are plethora of brokers who are available for this. They ask you for a 2-months rental as their service charge... however you can negotiate that to 1-months rental (or even lower!). Particularly if the house you are taking is a costly one. Try to look for a broker who has the property listed with him directly. Bigger the chain the more difficult it is to get that service charge down.

Normally the deposit is also equivalent to 11 months' rental. Now depending on the place that you live in the rents do vary. Mind you, just because the rent is low does not necessarily mean that you live in a far off jungle (and even the opposite is true).

Take an example... you can get a house in comparatively low rates at places like King's Circle and Sion-Chunabhatti areas, and yet they are very close to most places that you will ever need to reach without the need for a personal transport. Dadar, Ghatkopar, Bandra all such places are pretty near. On the other hand you may take a costly residential acco in Hiranandani Gardens and then realize that you need to have a car handy most of the times to reach anywhere meaningful.
