Deakin Share Accommodation

Room in a share house
New | $155

Deakin, Canberra

Room in a share house

The house is in a great location on a quiet street in Deakin. It is only a 2 minute walk to the Deakin shops 7 minutes to Woden and only 10 minutes to the city (15mins during peak time). There is a bus stop towards Woden and the City at the end of the street. The house is reasonably modern, and the kitchen has a small dishwasher. There are 3 bedrooms for 4 people (1 couple) and 1 bathroom/toilet. The house is already furnished, but potentially has room for additional furnitre. The available bedroom is a reasonable size at the front of the house and is currently partially furnished (bedside table, small bookshelf, clothes rack and mattress). The available room does not have any built-in cupboards.

Hi I'm looking to share share short term from Jan 6 to March 31 with a possible extension to June and hopefully, beyond. So, I'm looking for somewhere with: A) month to month contract B) six month lease with a potential break lease at April 2, or C) a sublet I'm an APS worker and I've been spending my weekends chillin' and checking out Canberra's art scene. I like it here! There's so much on! The basic stuff: My budget is 250-300per week ex-bill's. I'm happy to share an apartment with one person or a house with two. Please only message me if your listing is within the suburbs I've specified, Cheers. Other good stuff: I'm not a party person and tend to keep quiet and friendly around the home. I'm a second-hand book store and tea-chat kind of person. I also like hikes and overgrown gardens. I'm tidy and will keep the house fresh and clean. I am a Queensland ring-in so this chilly spring weather has been a surprise! I will happily have a preemptive chat with you about heating and elect bills in case I'm around long enough to need it next year. One other thing: if you happen to be offering a) town a house b) a ground floor unit b) anywhere that's pet friendly and you've always dreamt of sharing your pad a handsome house panther...I know a guy. Cheers, Rose

Looking in: Manuka, Kingston, Forrest, Deakin, Barton

I'm a quiet country fella, from northern NSW. I'll be working compressed hours and getting back to the farm as much as possible. I'm a pretty relaxed sort of person - I don't mind a chat and I'm equally happy to respect privacy and personal space. I've gotta say I'm a pretty average cook but a healthy eater. For those weekends I'll be in Canberra, I'm looking forward to enjoying the green space and catching up with friends. But I also don't mind binge-watching trashy TV:)

Christy and I are early healthcare professionals finally starting our career! We are keen to get started in Canberra come 2019 and finally make a difference. We are looking for another housemate(s) and separate rooms. Both of us are clean and laidback but are always up for dinner or a conversation! With that being said, we do respect the privacy of others as we like our own time to ourselves as well. We are not a couple but friends from Sydney. We met each other while we were studying at the Unversity of Sydney. Our budget is 250/week each and hope that we can find somewhere conveniently located near Westfield Woden and Canberra Hospital.

I'm a full time IT guy in the public sector who has being in Canberra for about a year now. I'm pretty out and about socially but am also fond of chilling out in my room after work or having a quiet dinner and board game/TV night with friends. A few of the things I have being enjoying in Canberra is going hiking and picnicking in the national parks, I'll basically live at the snow once the season is back in and otherwise enjoy the occasional weekend down at the coast in the warmer part of the year. One of my current hobbies is seeing how much chocolate I can cram into various baked goods. I like to keep a tidy house and am looking for people who also enjoy tidiness as well as a healthy mix of sociability and privacy :)

Hi everyone. I am a public policy graduate moving from Melbourne to Canberra in January to start full time work in Acton for the Australian Public Service. I will be needing a place to live, I will be bringing my own furniture for my room and will happily contribute to communal furniture. I enjoy quiet nights watching TV or reading a book, I am a sociable person and am always happy to have a chat with anyone especially about all things harry potter, parks and recreation and game of thrones, but I also fully respect everyone's privacy. I am reliable with bills and rent, am happy to join a lease, I am a non-smoker, I have no pets and my only requirement is that I need off-street parking (I will happily drive housemates around when I am not working). I plan to move up to Canberra on January 9th and I know I am advertising early, purely in the hope of getting something secured as I know Canberra is competitive for housing in January.
