    Hi all,

    Following my previous thread (see link below).

    https://www.ski.com.au/xf/posts/904307&page=1#Post904307

    After receiving much useful advice, we have decided that Thredbo is the better option. However, having made the decision, I now require assistance with accomodation - as I have never been there. Have looked at various websites, but have found them pretty unhelpful. Dont get me wrong lots of info, but no quick and easy way of finding suitable appartment style accomodation for 8 adults and 1 baby.

    Can anyone help with suggestions? I know local knowledge helps in these situations. Anyone had any good experiences they can recommend?

    Requirements:
    Looking to go mid August
    Want self contained appartment style preferably within village, or if not, not too far from the lifts
    Needs to sleep 8 adults (3 couples and 2 singles) and 1 baby
    Budget is around $4,500 to rent appartment for 5 nights

    cheers,

    Dr C

    When I went up last season for a week, booking the day I left, I found the interweb to be useless for accommodation, I rang a few places, then rang the central accommodation number off the Thredbo site, they found me something, and it was cheaper, and nicer, than anything I found on wotif, or the other two accom sites I searched.

    My 2c is give them a ring, and talk to a human, they are more helpful than some git named telecrag, who may or may not be real.

    open up the thredbo website so when you talk to them, you can look at their recommendations.

    Pretty well everytihing in thredbo is a max 10 minute walk or 3 minute free busride to the village centre.

    crackenback can be a bit hilly and a cumbersomewalk home specially in ski-boots, and i suspect most accommodation for 8 would be well over your budgeted amount

    upper village is also uphil returning

    woodbridge is flat and closer to friday flats

    If you can delay to later in August (22nd), many places consider that as shoulder and offer cheaper rates

    hers a good site: http://www.snowholidays.com.au/thredbo_apartments.html

    http://www.snowholidays.com.au/Snowstream_Apartments.html (3 bed plus loft, luxury, $5300 5 nights)


    (try this one as well,- very nice, but might juuuuust be over budget! http://www.firedreaming.com/default.htm )

    Dr C, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but I think you might have to stretch that budget a bit to get 5 bedrooms+ for 5 nights in peak season for under $5k.
