Finding a short term tenancy in Adelaide

    Recommended Posts

    Guest Phil&Miche

    hello!

     

    we are looking for some help and advice as to where we should live when we arrive in Adelaide in December. Michelle is 27, I am 36 and we both love to socialise so want to be in area with plenty to do and with a busy atmosphere. We don't have any children so don't need to worry about schools, but we will not have a car so public transport is a must.

     

    We are looking for somewhere which is between the beach and the town centre and until we secure work we will need to consider the cheaper end of the market!

     

    We would appreciate any help that you can offer

     

    Phil and Michelle

    Hiya,

     

    I really think you will have to work hard to find anywhere decent for December now.

    During the holiday season we can be booked out a year in advance!

     

     

    The rates are higher in peak season,nearly doubling in some cases.

     

     

    Glenelg has plenty of holiday ley apartments so you might be lucky but book ASAP!!

     

    Be very wary of cheap lets or any advertised on free sites, do your homework and make sure they are OK and exist.

    I have heard of lets not exisiting when guests arrive and some very shoddy apartments that were cheap for a reason.

    I totally agree with Tyke.

    The December period is always the first to be booked and expect to pay peak period rates for these times.

    As you don't have children it might be an idea to get hold of some of the hotels and ask for a "long term stay" discount. The periods during the week are often discounted with weekend rates being higher. Hotels are often willing to discount periods but you have to ask...

    Worth having a look at Aussie House Sitters website - we got lucky with 10 weeks accommodation whilst looking after after 2 houses (and pets) back to back.

    Also Airbnb https://www.airbnb.com.au/ is good. You can either have a room in a shared house, or a whole apartment. Have a look at somewhere like Glenelg, and places round there - or Norwood would be a good base: not between city and beach, but good transport to the city, and from there out to the beaches. Henley is lovely too and you might find something around there. Good luck - December probably won't be as bad as January in terms of availability - most locals tend to go away after Christmas
