House for rent in Hallett Cove (Adelaide) South Australia


Recommended Posts

Hi, I hope you don't mind an Aussie posting in this forum, but I have a house I have rented for the last 13yrs to 7 successive South African Families (including 2 brothers). The house is in Hallett Cove SA, where you'll find lots of other South Africans and a lifestyle everyone seems to enjoy.

So details about the house:
3 bedroom, 1 bathroom, 1 toilet.
2 bedrooms with built in cupboards.
Space for parking 2 cars off street.
It is on a sloping block facing the sea, and has sea "glimpses".
It has efficient heating & cooling.
I have the electricity and gas accounts in my name, which makes it easier for new arrivals who don't know which company to go with.
It is within 200m of a primary to year 12 school.
It is within 300m of a train station to the city.
It is withing 500m of medium sized shopping centre.
The house is mine, and I will handle everything, no agents.
I keep the rent below the market rate, and try to keep it the same until you move out, ie, current tenants have had a fixed rent for 2.5yrs.
The address is 12 Manunda Way Hallett Cove, South Australia.

The reason I prefer (strongly) to rent to South Africans are:
Most of you have owned houses before and know how/why to look after a house.
You have all been grateful for me letting you rent the house.
I do not care if you don't have a rental history I can check, I understand.
I do not care if you don't have a job, I've seen everyone get jobs really quick, I understand.
I understand that your furniture is coming soon in a container, so I lend everyone some camping chairs, cooking gear, and a 12V car fridge to get you by.
I don't mind if you're family comes to visit, I had up to 11 people in the house at once!!
Everyone has paid the rent and looked after the house, that's all I ask.
And it's great for me to see families arrive, with a tenseness in their face and manner, and gradually, over about 3 months, relax, then 12 months later be absolutely settled.

The house is available from 28 April 2016, hopefully I find someone soon, otherwise I'll have to rent to Aussie's!!

I can provide contact details of previous tenants if you would like to check that I am for real (this is the exact opposite of what happens normally).

If you would like to call me: 0437 383 998

 

I will some photos of the house this weekend, when I take some fresh ones, as I've recently done alot of work in the backyard, including an outdoor fireplace.

Hi Everyone, below are some photos from around the house I have for rent.  I didn't take any of inside, as the current tenants are still there and I like to respect their privacy.  I also forgot to mention that the property has a 6x3m shed as well.

We are the current tenants and have been very grateful to Paul for helping us settle in a new country.  He is an amazing landlord and can definitely recommend this house and area.

 

The location is great and lots of South Africans live here so you will feel at home really quickly. Send me a pm if you want my number to arrange for an inspection.

Thanks Nicknel, appreciate the kind reference, will be sorry to see you move.  Fingers crossed I don't have to break the "South Africans Only" run of tenants.....

Hi Paul,

 

It seems perfect for my family.  We plan to be there end June/Jul at the latest.  Is the house still available?

Hi everyone, I'm happy to say I've found a nice South African family to rent my house.  The house will be available again late October at the earliest.

Hi everyone, this house is up for rent again, the current tenants have extra family moving over and need a larger house.  It would help them leave and me if I can find a new tenant asap.  I'm unsure of their exact timeline, but I know that they will definitely be ready to move in 4 weeks, about 26 July 2016.

 

Regards,

Paul

Hi everyone, this house is for rent AGAIN!! The current tenants have a job offer interstate, and will move straight away if I can find new tenants.  Otherwise they will stay to the end of their lease which is 28/1/2017.  The above photos and description says it all, hoping to get a South African family back in there again.

 

Cheers,

Paul Whittenbury

Hi everyone, this house is up for rent again, the current tenant will be moving out in 4 weeks, about 7 July 2019.  The house is still the same, except that the front yard has been fully landscaped, and I'm hoping to get new carpet in all the house befroe then as well.

Hi, 

 

Have you managed to find anyone?

 

We arrive next week and will start looking for accommodation after our 14 day quarantine.

 

Regards,

Andre
