Shared Rentals Accommodation

This is the perfect option for people who can’t afford to rent a home alone or pay the mortgage.
Sharing a home is ideal for you.

Shared-Homestay Accommodation Options:
Shared-homestay arrangements are made through the Australian Homestay Network (AHN) www.homestaynetwork.org .In our shared-homestay accommodation options, students are not required to pay bond, or sign a lease. You have your independence, but live in a home that has met our safety guidelines and a host who understands your relocation needs.
connectrelocate will have explained to the host that you are requesting free access to the kitchen to cook own meals, will provide 2 weeks rent in advance and provide 2 weeks notice prior to leaving the accommodation.
