Hi Everyone, So hubby has officially receive his offer and we are off to Melbourne... a city I know little to nothing about!! LOL... I am a planner so this does freak me out somewhat. Luckily, the company is flying our little family out in mid November for a few weeks, sending us home again for Christmas and back in January. This suits me right down to the ground as I get 4-5 weeks in Nov/Dec to check things out, arrange a rental, sort out schools etc. So, to all your Melbourners... please help me with where to look for short term furnished rentals - we are a family of 4 (kids are 3 and 6). We will be looking in the East... hubby's office is in Moorrabin so something relatively close to this but doesn't need to be on the doorstep. I have looked at AirBnB but its so pricey Thanks so much everyone, xxx
Coming to Adelaide for a look see? Need a spot to stay for a few days or weeks? I have a room to let in my home with a queen size bed, couch, desk and tallboy. 1 min walk to train station and only 6kms to CBD. PM me for more info. Happy to share any tips and advice about this great city. Moo
Hi guys. Not sure if this is the right place to post this. I am working in Sydney (Rhodes). Looking for a place to stay for about 2 months while I get myself set up in terms of a family home to rent (wife and 2 kids coming over in Dec). Yes, there is Gumtree, Airbnb and all the other options.I was just wondering if there is a South African family who want to make say AUD 300 or so a week by renting me either a granny flat or a private room in a house. I would prefer seperate entrance granny flat with own shower and kitchenette, but will consider other options too. - Would prefer furnished (by that I mean a bed and a desk). However could make a plan if not. - About 2 months. - Not too fussy about area. I have a car. Lane cove, St Ives, Pymble, Beecroft, etc. Thanks, Peter
After one or two hiccups, our self-contained suite is up and running in Sydney to rent! When we arrived on our LSD we stayed in downtown Sydney and to be honest, we wondered if moving to Sydney was a good idea! We had no concept of what it would actually be like to live here as we found ourselves in the city and not out in the suburbs where we would ultimately land up. As we needed to do our trip as cost effectively as possible, we chose self contained accommodation but even then, the price of a hotel in Sydney is exhorbitant! When we arrived to live here, we ended up renting a place fairly soon but our container arrived only 6 weeks later so we lived in a house with a borrowed (faulty) fridge, a bed borrowed from family, one couch and essential kitchenware and linen we had bought at the Reject shop! At that time, I always said we would one day buy a home that would allow us to run a rental guest suite for South Africans arriving in Sydney. We had hoped for it to be ready late last year but with some other family obligations had to be dealt with but we are now finally up and running and ready to welcome people. Our aim is to offer other South Africans the opportunity to rent cost effective accommodation in a suburb of Sydney which will allow you to get a true feel for living here or will let you live in a cosy suite until your container/goods have arrived. So whether you are on a LSD trip or arriving to embark on your new adventure, our guest suite may be perfect for people on a budget (especially as the Rand has now hit a 3 year low). We live in the Forest area, with a bus stop at our door which takes 45 minutes to the city or 30 mins to Chatwood. We have a large park outside our back garden and shops about 4 kms from our door. The guest suite has a Queen bed, sleeper couch (ideal for 2 children), kitchenette and bathroom with shower. We have parking in our garage for your car too! You will have access to foxtel (DSVT) and wireless broadband. The suite has been newly renovated, painted and updated and we have all new furniture, linen and appliances. Besides offering a bit of luxury at budget prices, we have a wealth of knowledge on this crazy process called emigration and are happy to share all our insights, experience and advice. It is not always rosy or easy, being an immigrant is not always fun and navigating the pitfalls would have been so much easier had we had some insight from people who had been there/done that! I am putting together a page on facebook with pictures of the accommodation so will have that up and running during the course of this week. So inbox me if you need some assistance and I will put up the facebook and website details very soon! This forum helped us so much during our emigration so I hope we can help other people too!
