Default A bit of a struggle this accomodation lark!

Oky Doky,

Here is the thing about trying to book a private short term/holiday rental somewhere in the Scarborough area of Brisbane for three weeks in March 2008?

I am looking for a house similar to this?

http://agents.realestate.com.au/cgi-...0&tot=82&t=hol

Has anyone used this outfit, they do not reply to enquiries made via their web form or personal email, so i guess its mañana maybe?

http://agents.realestate.com.au/cgi-...=10&o=pa&t=hol


Has anyone used any outfit sucessfully, or know of anyone who has a nice house to rent for three weeks to a young looking middle aged couple with all there own limbs in tact? If you do please get in touch, i would prefer to book something on recommendation rather than take a chance on spec? Cheers!

I do not want an hotel room or a flat, i really want a nice house, with a pool if possible, but easier said than done!

Yep, looked on there thanks, but nothing in Scarborough or near to areas to Scarborough? Pain in the backside this is, just wish knife would rough it on the beach like we used to when we were in our teens?

Cheers mate, called them today, the voice of an Australian women melted this stone cold heart of mine? Anyway had a chat, have to admit your apartments are not cheap but are very executive! Having a think, will make the mind up when the credit card shows up on the doorstep!
