*Available from February 9
Hello everyone! :) We are seeking a housemate to occupy a fully furnished, sunny room in our beloved three-bedroom house in St.Kilda East starting from the 9th of February.
The room is available up to 4 months, so this is suitable for exchange students, working holidaymakers, backpackers or anyone in need of short- to medium-term accommodation.
You will be living in this house primarily with me and my friends, Natalia and Trent, who are a couple.
We particularly value cleanliness and peace in our home, so we prefer living with people who are considerate and already know how to respectfully behave in a sharehouse environment. In other words, we want someone whom we can actually get along with and potentially be friends with.
Our home is not a party house, but we're always up for socialising in any way outside. Barbecue or relaxing by the fire in the backyard garden is always welcome and possible.
We are looking for only ONE PERSON who is:
- Friendly and easygoing
- Attentive to details and must know how to tidy up after himself/herself
- Must be able to do his/her own share of maintaining the whole house clean
- Social, but respects other people's private and quiet time
- Employed, keeps busy and works 9-5 during the weekdays
- Preferably aged between 24-36 years old
- Preferably vegetarian or someone who responsibly cooks and consumes meat only occasionally, and generally leads a healthy eating lifestyle
- Okay with living with a couple
The house is fully furnished, and it has everything needed for comfortable living. It comprises of a big lounge room, dining room, breakfast table and a fully equipped kitchen with fridge, oven, grill, microwave, gas stove, toaster and kettle.
There is a projector available in the lounge room for watching movies!
The backyard is surrounded by greenery and has a sitting area and barbecue. It's been recently trimmed and now appears absolutely perfect for summer.
The shower and toilet are separate and will be shared by all housemates. The bathroom is amazing as it is quite spacious, and it has a shower and a small bath.
The laundry area has a washing machine and a dryer. There is also a clothesline in the backyard.

The room is very sunny with a lot of storage space. The wardrobe is actually bigger than the bed. It is equipped with queen bed and mattress, big dresser drawers, built-in wardrobe, bedside table and lamp. Bed linens and towels can be provided if needed.
Street parking is available
