I have one bedroom available in a cute 2 bedroom ground floor apartment in Elwood. Even though it's not super modern, it is in fantastic condition with the owner repainting the entire apartment including the bathroom and kitchen counter tops, and replacing carpet throughout right before we moved in in August. We are located right behind the main strip in Elwood, with easy access to the bars, cafes and shops. Also less that 5 minutes walk from the gorgeous Elwood Beach. It is about a 10 minute walk to public transport, but if you drive there is plenty of on street parking (it is a very quiet and safe area) and we are very close to everything then. We do not have airconditioning, however by some stroke of luck we actually haven't needed one even through the heatwave we had in December. We do however have heaters in the lounge room and both bedrooms, again we barely used those in winter either.
As I have lived on my own previously the apartment is 90% furnished, including kitchen and laundry appliances, however there are still spare cupboards in the kitchen and you have a triple old style wardrobe in your bedroom to store things. The available room is a good size, easily fitting a queen bed and bedside table, plus a dresser if needed.
I work in Hospitality so I am out quite alot of the time. I am pretty cruisy when it comes to whether we hang out or not, I am quite busy so I don't always have time but if I do I'm happy to share a meal or go for a drink. I like to think of the common area as shared space and don't mind having guests over. I am a very social person so I would be happy to get along with your friends, and would love someone willing to get along with mine. I currently foster cats, though I may be taking a break from that soon due to time restraints. I keep the apartment fairly tidy, but avoid being too much of a neat freak, we can still live in the space.
I would prefer to live with someone who works rather than a full time student, and believe we would get along better if we were within roughly the same age range (I am 26). I will be honest, I am not comfortable with someone who is too frequently into drugs. Though I am fairly open to anyone, so please contact me if you are interested anyone and we can discuss this. Due to the size of the apartment and available room this is not available to a full time couple sorry.
