Addington and Surrounds accommodation.
« on: April 14, 2013, 08:19:31 pm »
Hi All.

Working in Addington does any one know of decent temporary accommodation?

I am renting in a small room in a flatlet but not really comfortable / happy about the place I have looked for flat-mates but this is not really suitable as looking for longer term also so don't want to get stuck in a longer term agreement just yet?

Many Thanks.

I'm very biased.  I don't perticularly think that Addington is a great area to live.  That's just me.  Have something about the South (people of the South).  Riccarton, Hei Hei, Delamain, Avonhead, Redwood.  Just depends what you can afford and how far you want to be from work.  Also with all the road works which are going on and moving from East to West, ramping up from 110 - 150 road works over the next few months.

Look on Trademe as well as some Real Estate websites
http://www.qpmltd.co.nz/
www.irelandpm.co.nz/
www.christchurch-holiday-houses.co.nz/ (short term rentals)
www.priorityproperty.co.nz (they were the Property Managers for the rental we had in Redwood)

Hope these are helpful.  There are loads of others.

Try Hoon Hay, Riccarton, Spreydon, they are all next to Addington. Otherwise, Halswell, Prebbleton, Lincoln. The new motorway makes travelling from the West into the City extremely quick, and there is little or no roadworks. I work in Addington, stay in Aidanfield, takes me 7 minutes to get to work in the morning.

Hannes, I'm so glad you responded.  You know that area very well, while I know the Northern suburbs.
