  1. Hi All Me and the Fam are looking at moving to Brisbane this year and as the Mrs is not 100% about the move she wants us to move over and stay in a furnished rental for a year before making the big descision to stay or go back. The thinking is that if we decide not to stay we have saved about £5000 in shipping costs. Has anyone got thoughts on the idea or know what price we would be looking at for a longtime furnished rental? Thanks in advance. Matt
  2. My wife and I are back in the UK after a six and a half month trip to Australia on a Visitors Visa. Main purpose of the trip was to vist our daughter who got married to a great Aussie guy in January of this year. Our first grandchild is due mid April and we are keen to return to Australia to provide some family support and child care particularly when our daughter returns to work near the end of this year. Provided we can get a 12 month Visitors Visa we intend to rent out our home in the UK, sell the car and fly out to Australia before the end of this year. We checked out about renting a house in Australia when we were there and anticipate no problems in getting a long term rental in a decent area. We are both in a good state of health and financially can meet the conditions for obtaining the Visa both being retired and in receipt of UK State and Occupational Pensions. Are we right in assuming that we can extend a Visitors Visa for at least another 12 months under the current Visa regulations? Appears that we may have to leave Australia for a few days to be granted the extension but that should not be a problem. We assume that Medicare would give us sufficient health care under reciprocal arrangements between the UK and Australian governments. We even had free Flu Vaccinations on our last trip! There seems to be little advantage in applying for permanent residence in Australia provided current regulations do not change and assuming we can get rolling renewals of Long Term Visitors Visas, given of course that our health remains good and we take care to be model citizens. We are struggling to work out how the UK Tax Authorities would view such an arrangement and if we are likely to have problems if we are classified as non-UK residents. We are seeking professional advice on that issue and are not intending to take any short cuts. We lived in New Zealand in the late 1960's early 1970's and both our daughters were born their and have dual UK/NZ nationality. We have no illusions about the emotional stress of a long term move overseas particularly since it will certainly initially mean leaving our other daughter in the UK. Comments/advice from anyone who has experience of the above issues would be much appreciated. Thanks for taking the time to read this posting.

    Home swaps - Short term visits

    Hi, Just wondering if anyone would be interested in joining a family home swap? The problem we have is wanting to visit parents in the UK and Paris but ideally need our own space while we are there. As such I have created a home swapping system for families who want to swap with other families who have kids of similar ages so you don't have to take all the prams, porta cots etc etc. Trying to build up a database ( no costs attached) please let me know... Thanks Sarah
  4. Has anyone had experience of renting furnished accommodation around the North Lakes area that you would be happy to recommend? It will be for a family of 4. If all goes to plan with our 457 visa we'll be in oz at the end August this year but our furniture won't arrive until about 6 weeks later. Struggling to find anything on the net! Thank you all!:biggrin:
  5. Hi guys, we arrive in Perth in October and would like to arrange a holiday rental for the first couple of months that is fully furnished. Its just the two of us so we only need one bedroom.

    short term rental

    Hey everyone, i was just wondering if its possible to arrange a short term rental in hobart for about a week or two? :cute:
  7. Hi everyone, we (hubby and I) will be arriving in Brisbane in early June. I have a job at the Mater hospital and we need a short term furnished place to rent untill our furniture arrives from England and till we find a suburb where we want to settle more permanantly. Ideally I dont want to be commuting for more than 30 mins, hubby is hopeing for a job at Brisbane docks so anywhere between the two would be great. Can anyone help with advice on a nice suburb and letting agents who would be able to help with this. We have been looking at Springfield Lakes, Collingwood Park, Ferny Grove, Redbank Plains, Wynumm and Manly. Many thanks Lynne:confused:
  8. Hi There Was wondering if anyone could advise how best to go about organising the short term rental I'd need when I first arrive in Perth? As a guide, budget would be $400 per week and should preferably contain 2 bedrooms, although it's not required for a few months yet, I like to plan well ahead. Also, as we currently own a property with a mortgage, the obtaining of rental references towards the end of the stay would be handy. I'd certainly appreciate the guidance of people who have gone through the process, so thanks in advance for any guidance. Kind regards Ed

  14. We are arriving at some point mid November (assuming our visa rrives on time) . We will be staying in a short term rental until we sort out a primary school for our son and then we will be securing a permanent place. My husband will work in Civic. Can anyone reccomend a good short term rental. We are looking to stay longer term in Weston/Woden or Belconnen and would consider the Inner north also - assuming we find something suitable. We will be travellng with a 3 yr old and a 4 yr old and as I think t will take a while t get a onger term rental - we would want womthing that will no break our bank accounts in case we have to stay for longer than 2-3 weeks. A two bed apartment would be fine - just want it to be easy for my husband to get to work (once he starts - we may not have got 2 cars by then so cyclable or bus - able) and a good base for looking around. I would love to hear from people on this. Also - if anone could pass comment on whether its bettwe if my husband comes alone first to do above and then me and kids follow? We thought about doing it this way but seems a big ask for one person to sort out Angela x
  15. Hi everybody, We are new to PomsInOz, so hello. We are moving to the Sunshine Coast in January 2012 and need to find a short term rental for about 8 weeks, before we decide where we are going to rent long term. Does anyone have any recommendations? We are looking at Caloundra up to Mooloolaba. Thanks Jo :biggrin:
  16. Hi guys, Having terrible trouble finding halfway decent short term accomm in Perth! We think we will be there from around 1st November and need somewhere for at least 4 weeks. I can't believe some of the dumps out there that people are looking for crazy money for. We're expecting a baby on 4th December so move is extra scary and looking at all the horrible run down places is killing the excitement of the move a bit! We would be happy to pay €3k for 4 weeks or could stretch to maybe €3.5k if necessary. Could be an apartment or a house, had to have air con as we have 2 year old (who is used to Galway weather!) and access to a pool would be great. Very flexible about location. Not looking for luxury but clean bright and modern (decorated more recently than the 80's would help!!!) One bedroom would be fine. Am I kidding myself with my budget? Thanks guys! Kate.
  17. I am expecting to arrive in Melbourne some time in Febuary and will be looking for accommodation for just a few weeks while I find a long term rental, I would like to find some place cheap with two bedrooms. As hotels could run up quite a large bill in just a few weeks I would appreciate any other suggestions. The area's I need to be in are Rowville, and surrounding suburbs. many thanks.
  18. Hello, Family and I are coming over to Melbourne on the 17th January and we are looking for some fully furnished accommodation for about 4-6 weeks. I have a couple of places we maybe able to rent, however nothing is confirmed yet so I wanted to see if anybody can recommend anywhere. It will be for 3 adults and one child (11 months old) so we are looking for a 2/3 bedroom property. We are looking for anything along the Mornington Peninsula as that’s where we would like to live long term. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks Hayley, James, Elsie and Bella. ps It also has to be pet friendly as we have a dog.

    Short Term Rental Perth

    Hey, Haven't been on PIO since receiving Visa grant mid-May. PC got a virus and is out of action and very hard to write posts on Iphone ;( Flights are booked for 14/09/11, finishing work on 26/08/11, first wedding aniversary 28/08/11 so it's all go. Trying to get our house rented at the mo but our main concern is somewhere to live when we first arrive. We have friends in Doubleview (emigrated last Nov') but don't want to stay more than a couple of days because don't want to be a burden .. Would need something maybe for 2 wks until we have found something more permanent. Would like to settle in the Quinns Rocks, Mindarie or Joondalup areas and so maybe a short term here would be nice to get a feel for the areas. We've enquired in a few places but they all seem very expensive and we really need to try keep costs down until we find jobs (medical secretary and plumber). If anyone has any advice, it would be much appreciated. Cheers, Gill
  20. Can anyone recommend any short term rentals in Perth, I have been on all the usual sites, we are looking for something Pet friendly for about 3 weeks from about 25th June 2012 preferably around Joondalup,Ocean Reef as long as it is near public transport and North of the River, I have sent so many enquiries but with no luck either they want a min 6-8 weeks or no pets, we are sending our dog over before us so that we can pick her up when we get there so it's less stressful for her. What did everyone else do for there first few weeks ? It's so difficult as we don't have jobs lined up and don't know where we finally want to settle. please Help:eek:

    Short term rental..!!

    hi all.. me and the wife are due to be in melbourne (moving from sydney) in 2 weeks and 2 days. We've still got NOWHERE to stay... we cant afford another trip to melbourne before we arrive so going straight into a proper long term rental aint going to happen. So we'll have to do the short term thing. I'm jobless as it stands , but the wife has a job in Mulgrave. We're looking for a short term furnished rental somewhere within a 20min drive to mulgrave. And we're struggling. i'm on gumtree all day pretty much, not sure where else i can look. I've checked http://www.moving-to-melbourne.co.uk/ and though there are short terms, they're all a bit pricey (except for one in Box hill which is $595, however that's still a bit over budget)... Can anyone help, advise, or just shed some light as i'm getting a bit nervous... Thanks
  22. Hi all it is me again (family of 5 landing Oct 19th). I am very worried now after sending over 70 inquiries on short term furnished rental and receiving from all of them that either the location is booked or they don't rent for less than 3 months. The locations available are ridiculous expensive (AUD 230 per night). I have through literally every single possible website searching for a 2 bedrooms (min) furnished house/flat for a period of 2 to 4 weeks without success. I am now reaching to this forum to see if someone can help us here. Is someone breaking a lease, know someone who can let a property for this period (from Oct 19th). I really really appreciate any sort of help or reference. Thanks a million. Regards, Luciana
  23. Hi there, Family of 5, husband, myself and 3 children, twin sons(3) and daughter(1) arriving in Melbourne 3rd Oct. Oh the thought of this flight. Husband just found out yesterday has a job in Bayswater, unsure when he is to start, dilemma is, will only have 1 car. If has to start straight away, the only accomodation available is a bit on the rural side, 10 mins from Berwick. Anyone know of anywhere close to transport, not too far to Bayswater? Looked on the websites I had seen on here, only seemed to find long term rentals, or way out of price range. In touch with Moving to Melbourne, unfortunately as it is so close, place we had looked at, not available, thankful to her for the one option, not booked yet but would love something closer. I am hopeful all will come together, or it will be all up at 0700am taking Daddy to work yeah!!! How are Opticians and glasses prices? Read some of the Dentistry threads Yikes! Lastly any recommendations for car hire? Thanks in advance for any info. Head is buzzing now.
  24. Help! This is my first post on here. My husband is flying to Melbourne on 15th October and will be staying in a hotel but needs to find short term accomodation until he can find long term rental. Me and 3 kids will be coming out end of November. Any ideas or help greatly appreciated!!
  25. hi all.. so our move from Sydney to melbourne is taking shape.. the misses has an offer on the table in Mulgrave. So we're thinking of the Glen Waverley area to settle.... However when we arrive we'll need a short term.. between 6 weeks to 3 months.. we dont care if its an apartment, unit or what.. we may not have a car the moment we arrive so it needs to be within a 10min walk from the GW train station... Or close to Oakleigh, Chadstone area as that's got a bus to Mulgrave... Any help or advice will be great. I've checked the moving to melbourne site.. but it's a bit costly for us as budget is $500 a week or cheaper.. (furnished of course) Thanks all !!
