We have a freshly painted and very pleasant, medium sized furnished bedroom available now in a large-ish, comfortable apartment above a shop in King St, Newtown.

The rent is $280 pw and includes all bills - internet, electricity and gas.

We have a pretty decent kitchen and a recently renovated bathroom/laundry. The backyard is huge and we have outside laundry lines.

We don't have a lounge room because that's my bedroom. But we do live right on King St with all of its restaurants, pubs, bars and the Dendy is two blocks away.

We are looking for:

Just one person rather than a couple. Sorry!

someone fully employed, positive, friendly, sociable and independent-minded and with their own established social life in Sydney - so therefore probably not a traveler or tourist.

Willing to help out with household cleaning duties and buying toilet paper, garbage bags or cleaning products would be wonderful.

someone who wouldn't mind sharing with Toko, a beautiful 13 year old Tonkinese cat.

someone who will set up a direct debit to my account and pay the rent fortnightly in advance.

A six month commitment from time of moving in until at least Feb 2017.

The room is available from now to the right person.

Special Note: I have had a number of young travelers (four actually - from the UK, France, Spain and the US) say they'll take the room and pull out at the last minute. Majorly frustrating! So ...if you're flaky or flighty or you haven't yet realized that you need to be with people your own age or you can't commit to six months - please recognize this and move onto the next ad.

More about the Flatmates


My name is Rob. I am of mature years but fit and young at heart, a high school teacher, traveller, surfer, bike rider and yoga practitioner/yoga teacher/yoga therapist.

You would be sharing the apartment with me and my 25 year old son, Hugo, who is a university student, fitness guru and keen fisherman.

We are both easy-going and easy to live with. We have many years of experience living with others. Essentially, we all do our own thing and that's our invitation to you - to come and do your own thing at our place!
