About Us

Canberra Furnished Accommodation began in 2003 when Matt and Laurie McDonald rented their investment property on a short-term furnished basis.

Whilst on maternity leave with their first child, Laurie began the business by putting a computer and furniture package on her credit card. There was considerable demand for the property and Laurie realised she had stumbled upon a much needed accommodation niche in Canberra.

Today, Canberra Furnished Accommodation is an award winning business with more than 50 properties available in Canberra for people needing furnished and equipped accommodation on a flexible or short term basis.
