Hello all, introduction and question about renting....

Hello all,

I'm currently in Pakistan working in the humanitarian sector in the flood response. I'm looking for somewhere quiet and far away from the usual 'touristy' places to spend a month or maybe longer end of contract so from January 2012. After looking around I found out about BS and it looks exactly like the sort of place I'd love to be; quiet, beautiful nature, not developed, and with a good community. So first of all hello to all, hope to meet you all when I'm finished here and secondly if anyone has any advice or info on renting that would be greatly appreciated! Ideally I'd be looking for somewhere fairly simple, nothing fancy but with a bit of charm if possible, not too much to ask I know! :)

Thanks a lot......

Welcome to the forum, there are a number of houses for rent around BS, January is peak season though so most would be full. It is advisable to book in advance.

Thanks buksida,

I'd be coming with my girlfriend and looking to stay for a month possibly longer. If anyone has places to rent or can point me in the right direction I'd be grateful,

Cheers

Its unlikely you'll find a house just for one month in January, you may have to book a room in a resort or a bungalow for that period (there are a few new ones going up). Most landlords prefer longer term contracts.

Welcome aboard, have a look here for property listings in the area: http://bangsaphanproperty.com/

Only advice would be to spend a few weeks looking around and finding an area you like and that suits your budget, there is plenty of land for sale around BS and it is quite spread out.
