The Melbourne Carnival Cup is fast approaching and I would like to follow on from my previous post concerning accommodation. The last one encompassed hotel deals available for the duration of the Carnival Cup in Melbourne. However, I would now like to take a different stance on finding accommodation during this busy period. As you may be aware, hotel deals can be snapped up pretty quickly. So if your still looking for a place to stay and are happy to sacrifice slightly on privacy, I have a fresh wave of even cheaper options for you courtesy of AirBnB.
This service provides the opportunity to rent rooms, apartments or houses often for short periods directly from private property owners. You have the ability to enable a range of different filters allowing your searches to be as simple or as complex as you like, from a single bed with a bathroom, to a four-bedroom house with a swimming pool, doorman, hot tub and much, much more.
