Hello all!

I'll be in Chennai for 3 months (mid-Oct to mid-Jan) to pursue my study of Carnatic music. I'm French-Canadian and have been to Chennai for 6 months in 2008. IndiaMike had been a great ressource back then, nice to be back!

I'm seeking housing, preferably close to Besant Nagar, Adyar or Sastri Nagar.

Living arrangements:
Not sure if I am looking for housemates, rent a room from a family, live alone, etc. A furnished or semi-furnished place would be ideal. Would also like a certain ammount of privacy (I will probably practice music there and work on projects from home.) Wifi is a must.

Ideally under 15,000 rupees. Am willing to go higher provided the place is "perfect" in more ways than one!

Let me know if you can think of anything or if you happen to be looking for a housemate during that period!

Is it fairly normal to rent for such short periods (3 months)? In any case, I have to wait a bit because most postings are available right now or in the next weeks and I'll be there in mid-October only.

I am in a similar situation as I required accommodations for only about 4 months (mid Aug - Dec). I found it very difficult to find short term apartments and ended up in a service apartment in Adyar but I am paying about double your budget. I suspect I could find something cheaper once I arrive in Chennai but I really don't want to spend the short time I have there looking for a cheaper apartments. I would also have to budget other costs that are covered in a service apartment (WiFi, electrical, etc.). I did have to alter my budget but also thankful I have nice, safe accommodations and fewer "out of pocket" monthly expenses.
