My name is Chris (unimportant since I'm the one moving out) and my super awesome room is up for rent! This house has it all: space, natural light, a pool, great housemates, and most importantly a dog. A dog named Rhino. I'm moving to Sydney for work and so I must vacate, however, I do so reluctantly. This place is a dream. Right off Greville, steps from College Lawn Hotel (enough steps to not hear the place), and moments from Chapel Street. This apartment block has a massive garden surrounding the pool, respectful neighbours, and it's quiet. There a lot of young people and families here so it's great all around.
The room itself has plenty of space (I have a double bed and a few IKEA items and a desk if you need a furnished room, which I'm happy to sell to you at a fair price, otherwise I'll take it with me) and the largest built-in-robes in the house. You'll be sharing a bathroom with one other girl, Amber, (the master bedroom , occupied by Val and Sammie, is on the top level and has an ensuite) but you'll have your own sink, which is really the most convenient part. There is toilet on the ground level as well which means you're not stuck having the bathroom that all the guests use. The room looks out over the backyard, where you may catch glimpses of Rhino, or the odd pigeon bobbing around. There is plenty of greenery to see. The room gets plenty of light (sunrise) and the fully mirrored robes make it feel much larger than the 3x3.5 metres it is. To give you some idea of the size, my double bed is 1.5x2 metres so roughly 25% of the floor space and it's in the corner so there is plenty of space for furniture, a clothes drying rack, an easel, or whatever weird stuff you want to put in there.
The common areas in the house are huge though, the kitchen is amazing, and the lounge room is very comfortable and bright. It's a social house and apartment block (don't worry, it's not Revolver), so a person who likes to chat and enjoy time with others would be best suited, especially during summer!
You can get a parking permit for the area or use our variable permit, and there is always parking available. If you have a motorbike, you can share the space we have with Val and Amber who both ride and park under cover.
Bills are split evenly, coming every 2-3 months. Unlimited internet is included in rent.
I’m Rhino! I’m a Labrador cross Staffy (I like Stabrador best, it makes me sound dangerous), 2.5 years old and chill as. I'm medium sized, don’t bark or chew furniture, I love people and going for hikes and playing with other dogs. Life is ruff, ain't it?
Hi, I'm Amber, 29, from Tassie, and I work in the city 9-5. You'll be sharing the bathroom with me, but don't worry, I'm very tidy! I like to keep the house looking fresh with plants and I enjoy a social night out and relaxing on the weekends. Sometimes my dog Wilfred (aka Chillfred) stays with us and he's quiet, doesn't shed, and loves a cuddle.
I am Val, 25 years old, originally from Germany and my life pretty much revolves around studying my PT course, doing fun stuff with Sammie and Rhino, and being noticeably taller than everyone. I am pretty easy going, generally a tidy person but not a clean freak. I am always down for a beer or two and a social night out. I share the master bedroom with my girlfriend Sammie!
Hi, I'm Sammie! I'm 27 years old and from Australia. I'm a vet surgeon and I love going for hikes with Val and Rhino and riding my bike. I'm cheerful, respectful, and social.
We are looking for a guy or girl similar to us, who can stay until the new year or longer. Someone sociable, funny, and with an optimistic outlook! No grouches. You must be okay with having a dog in the house. You do not need to share the financial aspect of Rhino housemateship, however, belly rubs are encouraged, Val loves them too. Give us a holla if you have any questions or want to arrange an inspection. We hope to hear from some awesome people and…
May the odds be ever in your favour.
