We are going on sabbatical soon (so posts may slow down on this blog for a few months). I have had success using Sabbatical Homes to find short term furnished accommodation. It’s used primarily by academics looking to rent out their homes while they are travelling or on sabbatical themselves.  We found a great apartment in Vancouver from a family who also have two small kids , so the apartment comes with toys, books etc which is great for us.

We are also using Sabbatical Homes to rent out our apartment in Bielefeld from March 1st to June 30th if anyone is looking for a furnished large sunny apartment. (It’s a great location close to Bürger /Oetker Park and Siegfriedplatz so walking distance to the uni or city center and comes fully equipped for a family).
