The construction of retaining walls must be based on the calculation of stability and safety factors because errors that occur in the construction of retaining walls can be fatal, namely property loss and can cause fatalities. It is a geographical analysis and the purpose of this study is to determine the efficiency of the base width of the cantilever type retaining wall in the "MOUNTAIN BREEZE" housing in Bandung Regency so that it is stable against overturning, shearing, and soil bearing capacity. One way to make efficiency is to make changes to the width of the base. From the results of research on retaining walls with base width (L) = 1 m, 2 m, 3 m, and 3.5 m, it can be seen that the most efficient and stable base width against overturning, shearing, and soil bearing capacity is 3.5 meters.
