Providing the comforts of home combined with some much welcomed added extras, apartments are a popular choice for many travelers. Apartments are a great choice for the self sufficient traveler equipped with their own kitchen and laundry Apartments often suit families away on vacation or travelers looking to base themselves in a central spot for a longer period of time. There was a time when Apartment Style accommodation was always serviced – meaning that staff employed by the complex would carry out duties such as cleaning, making beds, laundering sheets etc. However, now many apartments have evolved and are unserviced, giving you the option to perform all the duties you generally would at home such as washing, cooking and cleaning, thus giving you the option of cooking your own meals – often a much cheaper option than dining out every night.
Apartment hotels are adaptable types of accommodation; rather than the stiff arrangement of a hotel room an apartment hotel building generally boasts a complete fully fitted and furnished apartment . These compounds are normally custom built, with similarities to that of a hotel multipart containing a diverse multitude of apartments . The amount of time people choose to stay in these apartment hotels can vary anywhere from a few days to months or even years. Prices tend to be more reasonable than hotels. Apartment hotels are used for many as a home away from home, and thus they are more often than not fitted with everything the average home would need.
There are many different styles of apartments available to rent in all of Australia’s capital cities. From luxurious penthouses ( singular apartments taking up an entire floor of an apartment block – generally the top floor) to modest studio apartments and everything in between, weather you are a looking for temporary or permanent accommodation there are a multitude of apartments available to rent throughout Australia.
Apartments can be classified into many categories;
Studio apartments are small, one room apartments which combine your living space with your bedroom, generally they have a small kitchen area and a separate bathroom area. Studio apartments are particularly popular in inner city areas as they provide the cheapest option for living in areas where rent can be notoriously expensive.
1, 2, AND 3 bedroom apartments generally have a combined living/dining area with a separate kitchen and bathroom; multi bedroom apartments may sometimes have ensuites attached to the main bedroom. Internal laundries are generally a common feature – especially in more modern apartments . The more bedrooms an apartment has will generally be proportional to the amount of rent you pay, for example a 1 Bedroom apartment with the same sized living space as a 3 bedroom apartment , located in a similar area would have a great difference in price. Many young people choose to rent larger apartments – which although on surface value may look more expensive than a smaller apartment , when the rent is divided amongst 3-4 people it is quite affordable.
Apartments can be quite luxurious. In Australia in particular, where most families live in suburbs on the fringe of the capitol cities or by the coast, it is not unusual for mum and dad to sell the family home once the kids have grown up and moved on and buy an apartment , by the beach or in the heart of the city. These luxurious apartments are popular for many reasons, 1 being that they offer the comforts of home such as swimming pools , and landscaped gardens – but without the hassle of maintaining them.
Holiday apartments , like residential apartments are available in all price ranges. Even within the one resort you will find an array of apartments available at differing costs.
