Nomad Family looking for a short term rental in Mumbai

Hello All,
We are a nomad family starting our journey in Medellin. India / Mumbai to be specific is our next destination.
I am finding it very difficult to find properties in AirBnB within a reasonable budget and makaan and magicbricks is cumbersome.

Anyone has had any experience on best approach to find where to stay?

Any help greatly appreciated.


I am having the same issues with the same city. The rental sites show cheap places but are hard to use and seem unpredictable. Airbnb flats are too expensive, relative to the ones on rental sites.

Mumbai is notorious for the exorbitant accommodation rentals.
It is really difficult to rent an apartment online in Mumbai.
My suggestion would be to contact any of the listings on the popular rental websites and then ask that agent to show you around. ( Most listings are done by agents).
Once you have a fair idea about the rates, facilities and locations look out on your own to hone on ta suitable accomodation.
