My beautiful boofhead Max and I are looking for a sharehouse ideally around Currumbin, but anywhere between Miami down to Cooly. The closer to the beach, the better obviously, but happy with anything about a 10-15 min drive to the beach. I would need a place with a backyard - so apartments are out of the question, but other than that, I'm not fussed! :) Another dog would also be great, but if not, Max loves the company of humans.
I’m 31, female, single, non-smoker, social drinker, super clean and tidy, full-time working professional who is currently working remotely in educational travel - we send groups of students on tours internationally and domestically. I’m typically a morning person, so up and out exercising early, and then during the day I'll be working 9-5 Mon-Fri (from home) and then usually like to be out and about a lot on weekends - exploring, catching up with mates, doing activities, etc.
I've lived in sharehouses for most of my 20s before deciding to live by myself for the last two years. I know how to look after a place as if it's my own - keeping in clean and tidy and being respectful, but also being realistic that it's a home, not a "display home". There'll be times where I'm happy to chill out by myself or with the dog, and other times where I'm super happy to have wines and dinner with the housemates - basically whatever you're after, I can pretty much accommodate that. Also totally fine with people bringing mates around for dinner or drinks or to stay the weekend or whatever. :)
I've done the whole "7 people in the early twenties living in a 3 bedroom apartment" thing before, and not down for that again. Ideally I'd be looking to share with people in the late twenties, thirties or forties - couples are fine if the house is big enough.
I’m adventurous, travel heaps and love exploring new places. I've motorbiked and van-lifed from Alaska to Patagonia, hiked in the Himalayas, driven a shit car from London to Mongolia, safaried in Africa. I love to get out and camp, or go for a hike. I’m "generally" pretty healthy – eat well and exercise well and try to do a bit of mindfulness – but I also love heading to a brewery, discovering a new distillery and gorging at delicious new food places! I’m outdoorsy – so beach, hiking, walking, SUPing, etc. is all up my ally. I’d much rather do something like that than sit inside and watch TV all day.
Now Max – he’s an 18 month old great dane x boxer (think the size of a Labrador though…) He’s SUPER chill and I haven’t met a single person who doesn’t love him. He gets along swimmingly with other dogs, doesn’t wreck things, doesn’t dig, doesn’t bark and due to the fact he suffers a bit of separation anxiety, he goes most places with me anyway. But you’ll love him – I promise! He’s a beautiful gentle giant.
I'm happy to pay up to $300 for the right share place. But equally, if you have two rooms available, I'm happy to discuss a negotiation so I can use as a study and so the house can have a spare room for visitors/guests. So let’s chat – let me know what you’ve got.
