Moving to Melbourne - whats the best way to get a room for 8-12 weeks? References?

Recommended Posts

Guest wadeandlou

Hi Everyone,


My girlfriend Lou and I are both relocating to Melbourne, both 29, sociable and fun loving people, I'd be in to sport, cycling and travelling... Lou in to shopping and socialising!!


I am going first at the end of April and Lou is going to follow me out in 3 months ...


We are going to get an apartment together but in the mean time I would be looking to rent somewhere short term for the first 3 months so I can involve Lou in the hunt. I don’t mind sharing a place etc but other than gumtree I don’t really know the best way to find a pad for 3 months??? – Any suggestion?


Also I am a homeowner in the UK so I don’t really have any rental references... Is there anything else I should bring that will help me when I initially look for a ST place and also when I finally take on an apartment when Lou arrives?


Is it also advisable to both have reference when we look to rent a LT apartment?

I will be working in St Kilda and would like to live in an area where I am not too close to the office say 20min cycle and there are restaurants and bar and bit a buzz around the place – any suggestions would be a MASSIVE help! :wacko:

I certainly wouldn't hire it by the Hour it might become a tad expensive :biglaugh:


I would suggest a Back packers, you can get special rates for long stays! and on the plus side you are not Isolated in an apartment driving yourself nuts
