    Default We're moving to Napier!!!!

    Hi all,

    We've managed to secure employment in Hawkes Bay and we're landing in New Zealand on the 5th of November! We're over the moon to finally be moving to Napier.

    Unfortunately, we've timed it badly with our belongings and the container doesn't get to Napier until the 15th December so we need to find somewhere to rent that is furnished for six weeks.

    Anybody recommend anything or someone to contact?

    Thanks for all your help!

    Rhys

    Hi. Great news! As you will no doubt have gathered, furnished rentals are not easily available. You might be able to persuade a local motel to negotiate a really good rate for 6 weeks - some friends of ours did this. Take a look at this 2 bedroom furnishd flat in Napier Town Centre.http://www.trademe.co.nz/property/re...-788108532.htm. Good luck!

    Hey there, does it have to be Napier as this one is in Havelock and it looks lovely,
    Might be worth travelling to Napier for a few weeks.

    Look at holiday rentals and negotiate the price for the 6 weeks thats what we did when we came over. Dont do it by email call them and talk to them on the phone it works a lot better.

    Try
    www.holidayhouses.co.nz/
    www.bookabach.co.nz/HolidayRentals
    www.hawkesbaynz.com/Accommodation
    www.jasons.co.nz

    I am sure these are just the start...........google it happy travelling :-)

    For six weeks (if you can't find anything on holiday houses or bookabach), you might consider the Quest. I would guess that their monthly rate is not unaffordable.

    PS: Welcome to the Hawke's Bay! Aside from the lack of available vacation rentals, this is the best time of year to arrive.

    We booked 6 weeks through:

    We were also able to negotiate a pretty healthy discount for booking 6 weeks.
    We did it all by email though which was so much easier for both parties due to time differences etc......

    We are moving to Napier next Monday and had the same issue. We managed to get a holiday home for a month or 2 at a great rate.
    We are moving from Scotland. Cannot wait!
