Space

If you are looking to book rental accommodation for a family in Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane, it might be hard to ensure that your rental accommodation is as spacious as your place at home. It is sometimes a good idea to concentrate on a generous living area and cut down on bedrooms by getting the kids to share. This will mean that you have more room to enjoy family time and you are saving on costs. It is likely that a sacrifice in space will also lead to obtaining family accommodation closer to the centre of town.

Location

Travelling with kids around a big city can be a frustrating and expensive experience. If you make sure that your rental home is close to one or more modes of public transport, it will save you time and hassle. It is also useful to think ahead about what your main interests in the city might be, and attempt to find accommodation within reasonable walking distance of these sites. This way, you will be able to see more and spend less time sitting on buses, trains and in taxis.

Cooking and Cleaning

When you are on holidays do you want to be able to cook your own dinners and breakfasts, or would you and the family prefer meals out? This is a question to consider when choosing rental accommodation - kitchens and kitchenettes can be a saviour or a waste of space. Different rental properties will have different cleaning arrangements. Consider beforehand whether you would like to rent a serviced apartment - which will mean coming home to a clean place without any fuss.
