Looking for a House to Rent

My partner and I are looking for a short term rental property on the island as a taster to see if we like living there before buying.  We have tried a couple of Air B & B s but with little success for the period we are hoping to come (early November till late December, just when the schools break up).

We have two young daughters, 9 and 7 and are hoping to enrol them in the Newport Public School.
