Hi Jayne and Jo
It looks a lovely area, close to whitfords train station and the freeway so very handy for commuting. the schools are supposed to be very good. We are paying $500 a week for the house, it is a 2 storey 5 bedroom and is in lovely condition. we only looked at few houses to be honest as we only really like a few areas so were quite limited in what was available. And we really wanted a house with a pool and there dont seem to be alot of them around! The house was actually on the market, but the owners like us with our house in the UK ,decided to wait for prices to rise again before selling, so we were lucky to get it! I think its just the luck of the draw on what is available at the time.

We are moving into our rental house 31st January and cant wait! Even though we wont have our stuff for a couple of weeks we have bought some things such as: Bunk beds, washing machine, fridge freezer, some garden chairs to sit on!! and some kitchen bits and bobs so we should survive until we get it. We have a 5 bed 2 storey house in Woodvale with a lovely private garden and pool so are well chuffed. Bit more than what we wanted to pay in terms of rent but think it,ll be worth the extra money. Seems like a lovely area and have heard the schoolds are good, so we,re very pleased!
