Local Guide to Holiday Rental Properties

In the Cove loves to support local and why not support local while on holiday?

Many Lane Cove /Hunters Hill locals own holiday rental properties all around Australia and we have a few in this guide that might be worth a visit.  ITC’s sister who is not located in Lane Cove but helps ITC out also has some properties she would like to showcase to locals.

We are also on the lookout for local holiday rentals in and around Lane Cove. If you have a property located locally or far away that you would like to feature in this guide, please email us on [email protected]

If you would like to include your holiday home in our guide wherever it is located then email us [email protected]
