I expect to arrive in Chch during March 2012. I need to find a temporary house to rent for one month or so. It needs to be furnished until I find a job and buy stuff and settle down . Since, I would be travelling alone, shared accomodation would do just fine.

It will be ideal if its 1 Furnished bedroom & within walking distance to parks, supermarkets, public transportation, etc

Please suggest me some good suburbs and also, if there are web sites apart from trademe for short term rentals.
