Medium Term Stays
We help you find affordable medium term accommodation
WHAT IS A MEDIUM TERM STAY?
A medium term rental is from a few weeks to a few months - usually over 3 weeks and under 6 months. Short term lets typically mean a week or two and long term lets will start at 6 months plus.
Medium term accommodation is in between a stay for your holiday and new permanent residence - a temporary place to call home. You’re not a tourist, but you’re not staying permanently and you need a comfortable, transport connected, welcoming place to live that can be your home away from home.
WHO NEEDS A MEDIUM TERM PLACE?
The modern world of study and work is generating an increasing need for medium term accommodation. If you’re attending a course, trialing a new job, on school or work rotation or working on a temporary contract you will need accommodation that falls outside of conventional hotel or lease options.
Interns, study abroad program participants, consultants, contractors, short course students, executive students, language course students, work placement candidates and multiple-city-dwelling young professionals are a few examples of guests who are in the market for medium term stays.

THE MEDIUM TERM RENTAL CHALLENGE
Conventional accommodation solutions - hotels and property leasing - do not cater well to the needs of guests seeking medium term rentals.
Hotels are expensive and made for short stays
Staying at a hotel from a few weeks to a few months can be prohibitively expensive if it is even possible to book for the duration of your stay. Some budget hotels may offer the right price range but present the risk of living in an undesirable accommodation for few weeks or months. Additionally, when you need to live somewhere for study or work it is nice to have a kitchen, and a place work and a place that feels a little more like where you would live normally.
The conventional property market doesn’t meet your needs
In most major cities landlords and property agencies require a 6 month minimum lease term, sometimes longer. If you assume the lease responsibility you can try to find someone to take over the contract but of course run the risk of being stuck with the bill. Additionally, most properties aren’t furnished or are partially furnished which means additional time and money spent shopping for furniture and basics.
The conventional property market takes a lot of your time
How much time do you want to spend browsing ads, setting viewings and negotiating terms with landlords or property agents when your stay is only a few months? It can end up being a very time consuming process, all of which takes energy and effort away from the reason you’re traveling in the first place.
