Hi, my current housemate says I'm "easy to get along with"! Have shared with same person for 6 years, do my share around the house (I like clean and tidy anyway), and am respectful of each other's own spaces and noise. I'm happy to chat, but am independent and mainly keep to myself and own space. Prefer own bathroom if possible and unfurnished, as have own bedroom furniture etc. From the UK, married and divorced in NZ. Moved here in 1995. Worked for 20++ years in mental health care. Aim to work part-time, once settled into new living situation. I'm a non-smoker, don't take illicit drugs. Into health and fitness, have many interests as well as relaxing at home. Have an indoor/outdoor cat who is an ex-rescue, and needs a safe space when outside. She has only ever had traumatic experiences with dogs (I love dogs - "such is life"!) so she's incompatible with any resident dogs.
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!

I cook and clean up after myself an I always pay rent on time, I'm employed full time in Kilsyth from 6am to 4:40pm so i'm hardly home but when i am I'm very social an I can basically get along with everyone. I enjoy meeting new people an making new friends but also like to relax by myself at times. At the moment i'm hoping to find a furnished place if possible but its not essential... If you would like to know anything else please don't hesitate to send me a message or give me a call... Cheers guys
I'm 21, I have my own car and drivers licence, I work permanent part-time as a CSR at BP. I am a very clean and organised person, I wish to live with people I can socialise with on the couch over dinner and a wine or two, though aren't offended if I just want to relax in my room after a big day. Not fussed on male or female housemates. I have a 3 year old cat named Lilo I would have to bring with me, mostly an outdoor cat- only comes inside to eat or sleep. I am extremely easy going, optimistic, loves a laugh and open minded. If you would like more information feel free to send me a message or give me a call :')
I recently had to leave my previous place of accommodation in Pakenham due to a cut in the hours at work. Despite not missing any payments, my housemates screwed me over and kicked me out. I have since obtained some more hours, gotten some financial assistance while also continuing to look for additional/new work moving forward. I have been staying with a friend for the last few weeks which has also helped financially, 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. My last housemates were no exception to this. 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
Were a standard couple, enjoy our alone time but were both open people and enjoy chilling with a JD or beer. Were both tidy individuals, me more than him, haha. I love cooking and always make toomuch for us so feel free to take the leftovers, free food :)

Hi. I'm offering a room in my home for someone to rent for $220 a week inclusive of bills, unlimited internet and foxtel. I am looking for someone that pays their rent on-time.

We have wifi and foxtel and your room has a Queen sized bedroom suite in it if you need it. Your room and bathroom is off a halfway so you can shut the door for extra privacy. There is a spare room if you wanted to make it a mini lounge room of your own. I am looking for someone that is relaxed and doesn't mind a chat, not looking for party people, although we do enjoy a bbq and drinks with mates from time to time. Close to Phillip Island and only 50 mins to the Melb CBD.

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, 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.

Hi, I work unloading shipping containers of wine in the Dandenong area an average of 25-30 hours a week. I am also looking to get back into repairing musical instruments for a bit of extra cash. Outside of work I'm a huge music fan so most of my spare time is spent listening to music and practicing guitar. I use headphones and computer software to so you don't have to hear me practice. I'm also into comedy whether it be cartoons like South Park or stand ups like George Carlin or Bill Burr. I'm respectful, clean/hygienic, and mature person. I don't party, smoke or do drugs besides the occasional drink. My limit is $180pw including bills and preferably internet connection. I've been saving for a house for about 2 years now, so paying rent is not an issue. I plan to stay 6 months, perhaps longer depending of a few family variables. Anyway please contact me if you want to team up, have a spare room, or have any questions.
Hi everyone, I'm looking for a place somewhere around the south eastern suburbs of Melbourne (but I'm also happy to travel a little further too) that is pet friendly, as I have an older cat - she is house trained and is happy to go in and out to the toilet as needed. A little about me: I work full time and I'm a clean, quiet person that doesn't make too much of a racket. Please feel free to get in touch if you have something available. Cheers!
I work full time in reception. I am a Christian and attend church regularly. I have a boyfriend and we are hoping to get married in about a year or so. I am very clean and like to be organised. I am also easy to get along with. I need to live near a train station as I catch the train to work.
Myself and my partner are currently looking for a permanent residence in Melbourne. My partner has already moved over and i will be moving on the 21/06. Currently we are able to stay with friends until we get on our feet however we are wanting to find somewhere for ourselves ASAP. My partner has had 3 job trials this week so fingers crossed he will soon have employment, i am coming over unemployed however i endeavor to hopefully have a job within the first week or two also. We are laid back, keep to ourselves and are very tidy :) feel free to contact me
Im looking for long term stable place to stay. I work full-time in a warehouse in Mt Waverley and have a car so im looking for something in east, south east suburbs. I have a small fluffy (hyper allergenic ) well trained and social little Maltese dog. He keeps me busy we spend all our time together. I also am away every month on weekends with family in Gippsland & dog comes with me. Prefer a mature type of home. I love watching movies, a good book, eating out and coffee.
I am currently working most days, and studying. I have 1 dog and 2 cats, who are my furry little angels. They are all super friendly and well behaved. Doug, who is my dog, is a greyhound and is quite happy laying around most of the day, he is an extremely good doggo. I have rented for 2 years previously, and am looking for some relaxed housemates.
Quiet and well mannered, I keep to myself. I work as a baker so I have strangish hours (2am-10am) I have an adorable snuggly kitty who loves to curl up and sleep in your lap. I clean up after myself and try to keep organised with my room. Im a smoker, but Im trying to quit and down to 3-4 a day.
