I'm in the midst of planning a trip that will include going to Sydney for 2 months (late Jan-March 2009). The trip will be with my wife and 18 month old son.

I'm really struggling to find any information on short term renting property in Sydney, so if anyone has any advice I'd really appreciate it.

We're looking for:

2 bedrooms
Decent Area
Ideally near a Beach
That has a broadband connection set-up

Are there any good (reputable) websites that can help with this, or should I try and arrange this when we get there (ie stay in a hotel for a few days)?

Thanks in advance :)

Hi Rob,

Out of interest, I am going out to Sydney to work as of 21st Jan on my 12 month working visa, if you need any help with your little one let me know as I have experience working with children in a nursery. It will also be great meeting another family there.

In terms of renting in Sydney, I agree that gumtree would be your best option but I will see what other sites you could experiment with.

Let me know how you get on.
