Default Melbourne Short term Accomadation Required

Hi all

We are a couple arriving in Melbourne end of August and we are looking for a short term rent (thinking holiday type let) for our initial arrival. Needs to be fully furnished as our stuff won't get to Melbourne until September / October.

At minute we don't have jobs but are likely to working near centre of Melbourne so would want to be in reasonable commute distance. Also not wanting to pay a fortune seen some nice holiday lets but accomadate 6 and priced accordingly. We just want somewhere suitable for the two of us.

Any help ideas of places to find such accommodation greatly appreciated. Or if anyone has something to let please let us know

Thanks

Stuart

we're using www.australianhomeaway.com.au for the 2 of us when we first arrive - haven't been there yet as we get there at the end of July, but they seem reasonably priced and have been efficient and helpful so far.
