Pac-Man, Rach, Karen and Huw are looking for a new housemate! Yah!
We are a mixed gender, mixed ethnicity, LGBTI friendly household seeking a chilled out, legend of a housemate.
You will need to like board games, pancakes and brownies and hugs from big friendly giants. Paco’s Saturday morning pancakes is a tradition in our house and we will need to initiate you when you join us. Nutella will be provided. Also, Rach has started cooking brownies so that’s a thing here now, and Karen and Huw will make you play Cluedo, Sequence, Chinese Checkers or Rummy so bring you’re A-game because they’re pretty shit hot!
We live in trendy St Kilda East, about 5 minutes walk from Balaclava train station. The area is very quiet, with lots of parks and the beach is nearby. There are a Coles and Woolworths within a 5 minute walk, as well as chemists, gyms, grocers and many coffee shops and restaurants. From Balaclava station it only takes 13 minutes to get to Flinders street.
The room itself is fairly large and comes fully furnished, with a double bed, bedside table, chest of drawers and a wardrobe. The room receives a lot of natural light and has a really positive vibe to it. Bills are included in the rent and the house comes with free wifi.
The Melby is not just a share house to us. It is a home. We don’t have rules or rosters. Our home works because we all contribute, and we are all considerate of each other. Our philosophy is; if you see a problem - like the bins are full or we need more sponges- go buy the sponge and empty the bin. If everybody has that attitude then it works. As soon as one person stops giving it all falls apart.
The room is private and the rent is a steal for the area!
We are looking for someone who will stay longer term, and is sensible and considerate of others. Students and members of the LGBTI community are encouraged to apply, but as long as you want to contribute and be part of a great home environment then you are most welcome to apply :)
We can't wait to meet you!!
