We secured our rental from the UK. Arrived on 30th Nov and didn't want the hassle of trying to find a rental so close to Christmas. The site I found was www.noagentproperty.com.au I found a suitable property and emailed the landlord then posted on here for info re schools/location etc. Decided to rent the property, phoned the landlord (she emailed me Agreement etc) faxed them back and did a bank transfer to secure the rental. She has another rental available now in Aldinga Beach. PM me if you want more details. Good Luck.
