[quote=Ellie;63727]Hi Cara, We are nowhere near our dream yet but been getting ideas. We think we are going to go on a caravan site. Thought it might be better to stay there for a couple of months whilst looking first hand for a property. Found one thats near the beach too www.woodcroftpark.com.au worth a look![/quot
WE were going to do this first BUT you can book into one of the short term rentals for just as much money.....fully furnished with more room and EVERYTHING you need, the caravan units are on the small side . There are lots of members who have rentals so deffo look at prices.
Thank you I think that's good advice. I didn't think of that. Just had a quote from one site $462 per week then decreases in price the longer you stay. Seems alot to me when you look at the house rental prices per week. Not a great deal supplied either.

I have a big family, as you know; and each had specific requirements............like their own rooms, sitting room and pool! Not many houses fill the bill within our budget, so the pool went west (got a portable one now though).
Working in the city, i didnt want a long distance to travel; about 30 mins max each way. selfish, i know, but hey, i came here to have more time with my family....
Hills, coast? i settled for hills. So far from other expats who arrived within the same timeframe, and its a price we had to pay; so far it hasnt really prevented contact! So tough luck, kp nuts, sue to oz, trakki et al, ;).
either way, if you need help, just ask.........................i can cover the city and eastern suburbs for you.
BTW, you arrive 6 days befor my birthday............................i might have a party, guys, complete with bbq, booze and stuff!!!!
Take care Cara, see you then
thanks lovey and thanks for your pm message... Put us down for your birthday party if we arrived.
