34-year old American girl. I have been in Melbourne for about a year and a half and work full time in environmental education. Currently WFH so I need a good spot to work. Outside of work, in pre-covid times, I do circus aerials classes a few nights a week and sometimes on the weekend when I feel motivated. At the moment I am trying to stay active with online classes but would love a buddy to keep me motivated. I love being out in nature, a good craft beer, board games and trivia. I've also been known to get stuck into a good Netflix binge session on a lazy rainy or hungover Sunday. I am a terrible cook so I don't do much of it (but maybe you can teach me how to make veggies taste good 😂) and am a bit of a clean freak so I'd like to live with people who are also tidy. I enjoy having quiet nights and spending time alone occassionally but am also looking for a place that really feels like home and housemates that become good friends and a second family since my family is all so far away! I am not looking for a party house but would like housemates that are around my age, working professionals, happy to have a beer and a chat, invite a few good people over for a wine and cheese night, plan some weekend getaways (I love hiking and camping) together and check out all the random happenings and hidden gems around the city. I love all animals and it would be a huge bonus if you have one (or a few) especially a dog that you wouldn't mind letting me love on and take on walks. Aspiring plant mom that can't seem to keep my babies alive, so another box ticked if you can help me and have an indoor jungle of your own.
I have permanent residency and am looking for a long term place to stay. I don't come with any furniture/household items as my last place was fully furnished so I am looking for a place that is already well equipped. A furnished bedroom would be ideal but I am also happy to purchase my own. I just got a car, so would need parking.
It is important that my new place feels comfortable, calm, cozy and homey. I would love some sort of outdoor space as I prefer to spend evenings sitting outside getting some fresh air (weather permiting) over sitting in front of the tv after being stuck in an office all day. Bonus points for en-suite bathroom and built in robe. Taking my time to find my dream home.
I am free for inspections weekends and evenings. Lets have a drink (coffee/tea/beer/wine-let me know what you like and I will bring it) and find out if we could be good friends and roomies!
