      HELP! Long term holiday lets in sydney

      Dear All,

      I'm hoping someone can help me...

      We are moving to sydney on the 23rd October, we ideally want to rent a holiday apartment where we could extend our stay if needed.

      We have been searching the web all weekend and have failed to come up with anything for less than $2000/£1000 for 2 weeks. I thought this was really expensive ( i know sydney is expensive anyway) but is it the going rate?

      We thought an apartment would be ideal as we will be going for interviews all over sydney and need something where we can have a good nights sleep. In Sydney there only seems to be hostels or expensive hotels. We don't want anything fancy just cheap, central and own bathroom.

      I have access to a number of journals online as i work in a university so have access to all the booklets on the Work Australia site so i could in return email you these!

      If anyone has any advice or sites that they can recommend i would be eternally greatful! At this rate we won't have any savings left

      Thanks
      Julo x

      Hi Julo,

      Cos you're looking at holiday rentals they will be dearer, here is a website for Sydney CBD rentals without the apartments being serviced, hope this helps.

      Thanks Jayne I will have a look now.

      We want a place that we can stay until we find jobs and find an area we want to settle in. I have visions of us getting stuck into a rental agreement somewhere awful and really far out becuase we have to rush into!

      I ususally use Stayz - No 1 in Holiday Accommodation Rentals but, yes, apartments in central Sydney are going to be expensive! Wotif.com: Hotels, Accommodation, Motels, Serviced Apartments, B&B - Online hotel bookings with instant confirmation is also usually very good for cheaper rates but they may not be registering late October just yet - you can put in a search for apartments.

      Thanks Quoll! i will have a look. I'm not sure if i should wait to see if the prices drop closer to the date or if we will end up with less choice and paying even more?!? this is more stressful than the visa process!!!

      Have you tried the Big 4 Campsites, Cabins - BIG4 Sydney Lakeside Holiday Park Mind you even at the campsites you are looking between $200 - $300 a day and I think its around 24km from the CBD
