HELP..accommodation needed

    Recommended Posts

    Guest MarkIngram

    Hi there

     

    Okay, just had word that we've not got OAA which is a real pain in the bum as we land in Adelaide on 29th Oct so just over 2 weeks.

     

    We now need to organise 'cheap' temp accommodation for a few weeks until we have decided on a suburb and found a house to rent longer term. Size of property at this stage is not important...a 2 bed would do as there are only 4 of us and our two daughters are 5yrs old and 8months old (so they could share).

     

    I know I've seen a few people on here with holiday lets mentioned...if anyone has any ideas or knows someone that has somewhere available for when we arrive that would be a great help.....I was so calm about everything before this all happened :arghh:

    Hi Mark

     

    I'm sorry to hear you didn't get OAA. I think trying the holiday parks is a good one although http://www.roorentals.com.au/ (Roo1) might be able to help or http://www.auseelife.com.au/ (Tyke) - if they don't have available properties they may know of some. Also try http://www.kalabityjane.com/ down in Aldinga.

     

    You could also try http://www.stayz.com.au/ for last minute possibilities perhaps. Have just had a tentative look on this and there are some available for your dates - 2 bed places in Glenelg for approx $700 per week, not exactly 'cheap' but unfortunately short term holiday type accommodation isn't. Brighton Caravan park have budget cabins, maybe try them?

     

    Good luck with sorting something out.

    Hi Mark - have you tried Donna at Tom Walsh real estate? djacob@westnet.com.au She has several furnished rentals at good prices.

     

    Or you could try Ethelton Apartments http://www.etheltonapartments.com.au/ they are aimed more at business travellers but are very nice (my in-laws stayed there)

     

    or try gumtree http://adelaide.gumtree.com.au/f-Unit-House-Real-Estate-house-unit-apartment-rental-W0QQCatIdZ18364

     

    Good luck!

    I second that!! Donna has been superb for us - highly reccommend her! We are coming to the end of our short term lease at the end of october - 2 beds near the beach in south brighton so I think that would be available.

     

    Hope you get something sorted soon :)

    been looking around and prices are steep even for a 2 bed apartment....idealy don't want to waste too much cash on what will only really be a crash pad for the first few weeks of mayhem (hahaha)...so trying to find something for no more than $500 per week.

     

    Got one of my best mates girlfriends, sister (who lives in Adelaide) on the case as well for me.....Zoe (the wife - and zedster on here) is taking it in her stride (normally me like that) and is asleep in the lounge....hahahahaha
