Share a large 2-level house (and pool) with international and Australian housemates in a beautiful part of Toowong, handy to the CBD (5km) and UQ (4km). We are a friendly bunch, looking for a friendly single or couple. We are international friendly, LGBT friendly, family friendly, etc! We like camping and hiking, cooking and chatting, chickens and gardening, art and fitness, a bit of politics and a lot of rugby, travel and trivia. Our party tricks include brewing beer, making pizzas from scratch, interpretive dance and sign language. We would love to meet you.
We have a large room becoming available from Sunday, 13 May (negotiable). The room is currently furnished with a queen bed, desk, shelf and a built-in wardrobe. However, the furniture can be removed if you have your own. Our current housemates (a couple) are moving out after 15 months, as they are buying their own place.
It’s a large 2-level house with lots of indoor and outdoor living spaces. Downstairs it's like a large modern apartment with a separate entrance, 2 bedrooms, bathroom (separate shower, toilet and handbasin), a large living/dining area, fridge, microwave, etc, outdoor entertaining area with a bbq, bar and a pool! Access to a full kitchen with oven upstairs. There’s no TV in the living area, sorry, but there is wifi :D
There is also a spare room upstairs which is used for occasional guests, which you are welcome to use if you have visitors.
Shared washing machine provided.
Located in a quiet street with a cafe, yoga studio, park, community garden, bowls club, soccer field and walking tracks nearby.
Lots of public transport options - close to bus routes 470/416 (to Toowong/CBD/Valley) and the 414/415/444, and a 15-minute walk to Toowong train station and more buses.
Please send a message and let us know a little bit about yourself.
Feel free to ask any questions :D
We look forward to hearing from you!
We are open to everyone - singles, couples, internationals, parents, professionals, tradespeople, students, LGBTs, etc. Essentially, we're looking for someone who will be a good fit with us. We are non-negotiable on being a nonsmoker, sorry. Our housemates in the past few years have included a French/Australian professional couple, a Dutch carpenter/bassist, a Melbourne chef, and an Indonesian Masters student and her daughter. They have all lived with us for a year or more each, and become good friends.
You'll be sharing the downstairs space with a friendly, smart, well-travelled couple from the Americas (Rhode Island and Argentina) who both work/study full-time.
Upstairs there is a small family - a rugby-loving civil engineer from Melbourne, a well-travelled civil servant/stay-at-home parent from Brisbane, an articulate primary schooler and a cute baby.
We have a few free-range chickens in the backyard. We are not keen on having additional pets at the moment, as we lost our old dog not long ago, but if you have an amazing mature dog who is not a big barker and is happy to live outside (there is a huge backyard), and likes chooks, we might be convinced!
