We are arriving in early October and wanted to find out what or where most people rented when they first arrived? I've looked at so many "short term rental' websites and they all seem so expensive despite some of them saying they are cheaper the longer you rent. We are aiming to try and find somewhere of our own to rent (Semaphore, Henley, Grange etc ) and are giving ourselves up to 3 weeks so the less we can spend throwing money at some short term place the better.
Did anyone else have much luck finding somewhere in 3 weeks? And are places generally available immediately or do you have to wait for them to become available? We need to visit family in Sydney and can either fly in to Adelaide and search for three weeks then go to Sydney while we wait for our chosen place to be available, or we can fly to Sydney first and then on to Adelaide if places are generally free straight away.
