Are you looking to enjoy an extended stay in Thailand but wish to move around from one destination to another? Perhaps you’d like to spend a few months in Bangkok in the winter, head up north to Chiang Mai for a spring stint, and then while away the summer in the southern islands? Whatever the case, you’ll need to know how to find the best short-term rentals for you. In this article, we’ll tell you how to effectively navigate paradise. Let’s jump right in.

Find a reputable real estate agent

Don’t underestimate just how much time and effort you can save by hiring a real estate agent. The best part? The most established and reputable real estate agencies in Thailand will have access to rental properties all over Thailand – rather than in just one area.

Check out cheap rooms to rent from DDproperty, and you’ll be able to view rentals from multiple destinations.

It’s also a great way to plan your journey and help when you know what to expect in terms of price point and availability before you arrive.

Consider using Airbnb

Depending on how long you plan to remain in a given location, you may do well through Airbnb. For example, if you’re only going to spend a few weeks on one island before moving onto another, then Airbnb can certainly facilitate a nice and easy transition.

Don’t necessarily stress about booking in advance

While many people like to be organized and have their short-term rentals fully booked in advance, don’t stress too much. Often, booking one night or two in a hotel is enough to get settled into your new environment and meet some new people. You never know when you will meet, and you might end up finding some awesome short-term rental deals in person. Imagine meeting a large group of like-minded friends and booking a luxury villa together. Sometimes, a little spontaneity can lead to amazing consequences.

Of course, if you can find a quality short-term rental and have it arranged before you arrive, it’s worth doing. However, turning up unprepared will not be the end of the world; there’s so much opportunity, and you will find somewhere suitable.

Research the average prices online

Don’t rush into the first short-term rental you come across. Make sure you research the average prices online so that you don’t end up being ripped off by an opportunist. If you enter negotiations over a property with confidence and knowledge about the market, you’ll have a much easier time securing a fair deal. 

Know the best areas to stay

You should do some prior research before turning up in a new spot. For example, if you are going to spend some time living in Phuket, which side of the island will be best suited to your needs? The last thing you want is to find that you are either too close to the action or not far enough removed. Know what you want, research the best places to stay, and book accordingly.
