6 Month Accom around Sydney

Hi there, my girlfriend is coming over to Sydney early 2014 and needs to be reasonably close to Alexandria but we are struggling to find a decent priced 1 bedroom apartment for her which is safe and secure. She doesn't really want to have to travel more than 45 minutes at the most. Has anyone got any suggestions who/where we can get help with this? Ideally she would like wifi but not sure what the situation is with this. Thanks Iain

Where has she been looking? Short term rental can be very difficult to find in that area as it is popular with students etc.

Domain & realestate.com would be a good place to start

domain.com.au/Search/…alexandria

Hi Mia, thanks for the info, it has given us some ideas, but the more the merrier. She needs a separate apartment/studio as apposed to sharing so that again is restricting what is available but we will keep at it. Regards Iain

Are you looking for a permanent rental as opposed to a holiday let?

You need to contact a real estate agent for the former ... http://www.realestate.com.au/rent/ ... and with that she would have to organize her own WiFi through a mobile provider ... it would not be part of the lease/rent.

The rental market in Sydney is highly competitive and the chance of scoring an apartment by herself at a reasonable rent is highly unlikely. Many rentals have queues waiting to sign up so it will be very difficult to organize before getting here.

David, I know you are being helpful but please note the date on the original post and discussion - November 2013. It's unlikely that the poster is still reading, and regardless has probably found some accommodation by now.

Possibly they have, however as they are talking about early 2014 they still may not have. So it doesn't hurt does it? Thanks for your advice anyway.
