" Ok for the record, so everyone knows how recent this testimonial is/was, we rented the Lorikeet from Aug to Sept 2011!
Firstly you will notice how well the internet website is structured with a great deal of additional information to help you with your initial move to Adelaide. Secondly, to have an idea of what a good service you will get from Judi (a lovely northern girl) and Roo Rentals check out the other testimonials for Roo Rentals on PIO & PIA.
So, after conducting the usual in-depth internet search and narrowing the field down to a short list we, after deliberation, were drawn to Roo Rentals. From our first email traffic with Judi (the owner) it was very apparent that she was prepared to provide the personal touch and assist with the booking process and a practical payment instalment plan. On arrival at the airport we opted for the the meet and greet service that Judi offers which was perfect as she helped with the excess baggage we couldn't fit in our hire car. The Lorikeet, which is in Hallett Cove, is about 30 mins from the airport or the CBD and 5 mins from the beach and more. As a two bedroom property, the Lorikeet is a great little place for starting your adventure or setting down your roots. Best of all there is a brand new shopping complex 100 meters away which will provide for all your initial needs (even a Big W - look it up!).
Judi was great and really took the time to answer all our questions - even some of the more mundane ones! The Lorikeet is close enough to the city to search for schools, jobs, facilities etc and far enough away to be close to the great beaches and countryside of the the South. You have to go to the wine region at McLaren Vale and buy some "clean skins!" which is 30 mins away. If you are travelling for a holiday it is great - if you are emigrating then we really suggest you book for longer than 6 weeks. Our advice is give yourself time to find a car, Job, schools and most of all a home! Nothing moves quickly out here and without the luxury of Roo Rentals you will be severely rushed and may make an improper decision you have to live with!
Finally make good use of the BBQ - and remember to clean it afterwards!
That just leaves us to say thanks to Judi from us all: Gordon, Tanya, Jade & Reece"
