I have been staying with a friend for the last few weeks but have since had to leave there leaving me without a home to stay. As a result I am in urgent need of finding medium/long term accommodation. I would prefer to avoid short/term or temporary as I really do require some stability. I work in the IT industry with stable employment (technology is very much a passion of mine). I'm certainly not the party type, and don't smoke or drink so there would be no issues there. As stated, I am happy with medium-term or long-term accommodation. If it's medium-term, I am morr flexible with what I am looking for than if I was planning to settle in somewhere long-term. I do not drive, so somewhere close to public transport is essential. A nearby train station is ideal but a nearby bus is suitable too. Bonus points if you have a cat :) (I don't have any of my own). My preference is for somewhere along the Pakenham-Dandenong or Cranbourne-Dandenong train line but open to other areas, especially if it's only medium-term. I was previously interested in the Pakenham-Traralgon area as well but unfortunately the regional V/Line fares are a LOT more expensive than I was expecting which removed those options from the table. My budget for long-term accommodation is around $200/week but will be less for medium-term accommodation as I will still need to pay for storage of my belongings elsewhere. To settle into something long-term I would need to be able to get my things out of storage. Happy to further discuss what I am seeking regarding long-term accomodation, but space would be high on my list. Sharing of meals would also be ideal. I do suffer from OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder), but am coping well. But you are a judgemental person or have issues with people who have their own struggles in life, then you are not the right house for me. If you can look past that, you will find I am a genuinely nice person who likes helping others and regularly goes out of my way for others, but unfortunately I have certainly not received anywhere near the same back in return. In fact many of the people I have helped out have returned the favour by simply screwing me over which is beyond disappointing. I'm quite an open and friendly person and I have nothing to hide so feel free to get in contact and say hi or ask any questions you may have. You are best to reach me through Gumtree messaging or via Facebook if you prefer. Unless I'm at work I'm usually contactable :). Alternatively if you know of any job opportunities in the IT/AV industries, or even know of anyone requiring any casual or home/small business IT/AV work, please also let me know :). Also, it's a shame I have to even say this but it seems I do. If I contact you regarding a room you have available, and it turns out I'm not what you're looking for for any reason, that's fine and no hard feelings but please don't just read my message without taking the time to let me know. I have lost a lot of time waiting for people to respond who never did, or who have just stop responding out of the blue. Not only is this quite rude and uncalled for but it's also really not helpful to me in my situation. Shaun
Moving to Melbourne from the UK to work. Pretty laid back and considerate housemate (had a lot of practice!) - I enjoy travel, staying active and the odd gin... looking for similar people to share a house!
Close to transport Walking distance to shopping centre Close freeway access Quiet street Requirements/ Musts: Reliable and aware of due dates for rent/bills. Full time reliable job or studying with part time job (evidence of employment required) Friendly, easy going , respectful and neat. Self maintained (do own washing, cleaning, cooking, grocery shopping etc.) Please note I am also willing to take on a couple for $100 each p/week. (everything else stays the same).
Your own, private furnished room. All utility bills included! Queen-sized bed, desk, fast WiFi internet - great value! We are the owners so the house is quiet, safe and always clean! :) Happy to help out overseas tourists/travellers/students looking for a place to stay. This house is strictly non-smoking, non-drugs, and basically for quiet, happy and peaceful people only. (So if you are loud, don't clean up after yourself, like to get drunk, smoke or into anything illegal pls keep looking as this is definitely not the right place for you.) Also, sorry, no pets. We have a dog so it wouldn't really work with other animals. One more thing - we like to keep the place free of strong smells so if cooking curries, etc. you'll need to keep windows opened while cooking, and if using spray perfumes, etc. pls spray outside when going out.) The house itself is high quality - stone benchtops, 9ft ceilings, central heating and central air, alfresco, dishwasher, clothes dryer, top quality European washing machine and room has very large double mirrored wardrobe. I also have a small weight bench, pull-up bar, small punching bag, dip station and some weights in the garage if you want to have a workout. Park frontage and walking/biking path right out front door! Bus 1 block away takes you to either Cardinia Rd Station or to Pakenham Station. We are approx 50 minutes+ drive to South Melbourne depending on traffic, during non-peak hours. (Could be double during peak hours so plan accordingly!) Train to the city takes about an hour depending where you want to go. Admittedly not much night-life in Pakenham so if you need constant pub or club atmosphere you'll be better off in the city. Over the past 2 years we've opened our house to travellers from Australia, France, Germany, America, Hong Kong, India, Ireland, Slovenia, Colombia, Taiwan, Russia, The Netherlands, New Zealand and Poland and enjoy learning about others and their cultures. We try our best to make everyone feel welcome, at home and enjoy their privacy. Also very happy to help out with your English if needed at no cost of course! :) About us - (since it's not just about the house - also the people in it!) :) My wife and I are both from overseas. (I am American and my wife is from the Philippines.) We are a professional couple, (I'm a school teacher and my wife and I also have a business.) Some of our interests are property investing, real estate, self-development and helping others out. If this sounds like what you are looking for then please contact us to stay in our happy home. Thanks :) Scott and Cheryl (*TIP for new flatmate users - please include either an email or phone number with your message so we can contact you back since new users are often unable to be contacted straightaway until you are registered.) DIRECTIONS/PUBLIC TRANSPORT INFO: NEAREST BUS STOP - Bus stop is right around the corner - (about a block away) & takes you to Cardinia Station/shops or alternatively to the Pakenham Station/shops. Buses come about once an hour and are meant to be in synch with train schedule but I've never tested so can't verify. :) NEAREST TRAIN STATION: Cardinia Rd Station is about 2k away, with the bus taking you there each hour. Or you can ride our bikes or even walk if you are keen. Or if we are not busy we would be happy to drop you off. Trains depart to the city approx about every 20 minutes or so during week days. (Tip - if intending to take the train and the bus is there, you might as well take the bus to the station since it is included free in your train fare. In other words, it will cost you exactly the same to the city whether you walk or ride the bike to the train station as it would to take the bus to the train station. The bus isn't free on its own but is basically included in the train fare with the MyKey system. Also, you can take any combination of multiple bus/train/tram rides within the same 2 hour period as much as you like - same fare.) MyKey CARD & COST TO/FROM CITY: Melbourne has this system called the MyKey card. You purchase a MyKey card and tap the card when boarding AND when debarking on any train, bus or tram. Melbourne has two zones - (Zone 1 & Zone 2. We are in Zone 2, Melbourne is Zone 1.) If you only want to travel only within Zone 2 on bus or train - i.e. if you want to go to Berwick, a one way trip from Zone 2 to Zone 2 is $2.48 for 2 hours. Entire day would be another $2.48. Weekends are the same price I believe. You can travel as many times on busses, trains and trams within that same 2 hours. If you want to go to the city from our house by train, it would cost $6.06 for a one way trip. After 2 hours you will be charged another $6.06. (The maximum you will ever be charged in any one day is $12.12 in Zone 1 & 2 so in theory you could ride on any train, bus or tram all day long as much as you want for $12.12 anywhere in Melbourne or outer suburbs.) Monthly passes work out to be cheaper if you travel every day. PUBLIC TRANSPORT FROM AIRPORT TO CITY: First you need to get from the airport to Melbourne. The cheapest way (without driving) to get from the airport to the city is the Skybus - this takes you to Southern Cross Railway Station. It costs around $18 one way and runs 24 hours/day. You might need to book - never tried it myself. DIRECTIONS FROM SOUTHERN CROSS STATION (Melbourne) TO CARDINIA RAILWAY STATION: At Southern Cross, hop on the 'Pakenham line' train and debark at Cardinia Rd Station. (Train ride from Melb Central Station to Cardinia Rd Station takes 1 hr 8 min.) DIRECTIONS FROM CARDINIA STATION TO HOUSE: After getting off train from city, walk under train line towards Woolworths and hop on Bus 928. Get off at Henry Rd. Walk to Edenbrook Circuit (about 2 blocks.) MONASH STUDENTS - did you know there is a free Monash shuttle that goes from Monash Berwick to Monash Clayton - and Monash Clayton to Monash Caulfield? It's free for Monash students & has WiFi on board. Just need to get to Berwick - (take bus 928 to Cardinia Rd Station then train to Berwick Station (3 stops.) One way cost would be $2.48. Alternatively, I drive by Berwick every day and can drop you off very near campus on my way to work & pick you up after if needed. GENERAL: It takes about 10-15 minutes to drive to Berwick/Fountain Gate. Driving to South Melbourne in non-peak takes about 50 min+ (though sometimes double or more in peak traffic/rush hour so plan accordingly!) Driving to Monash Caulfield takes about 40 min or more depending on traffic. DRIVING FROM CITY to PAKENHAM: Usually takes 50 min in non-peak traffic. (Double in peak sometimes!) M1 towards Warragul. Get off at Cardinia Rd. Turn Right at Henry Rd. After about 1 1/2k look for Edenbrook Circuit. Edenbrook Circuit has 2 entrances off Henry Rd. Take the SECOND Edenbrook Circuit. Call for house number.
