We are a young couple from Newcastle and we are moving to Canberra for work at very short notice. We urgently require short-term accommodation until we can get settled in and find our own place. We would like to move in preferably no later than the beginning of June. Our preferred length of stay is around 2-3 months but we can be flexible with this. Elliott (22 y.o.) - Public servant and Clark Kent look-alike; currently working as a research assistant and finishing the last semester of a commerce degree via distance. Michelle (27 y.o.) - Recently completed a B.A. in politics and international relations; moving to Canberra to work and study at ANU. • We are mature, respectful, and clean up after ourselves. • We're sociable and easy to get along with, but we also appreciate having our own space. • We'll be working full-time hours Monday-Friday and studying during nights/weekends, so we're looking for housemates who are quiet and considerate, especially during the evening. (We don't mind sharing with other students as long as it's not a noisy 'party house' type environment). • We're not adverse to hanging out occasionally — it would be nice to know some locals who can show us around the city and recommend things to see/do in Canberra :) • Hoping to find a room that's already furnished because we'll need time to acquire our own furniture. A queen bed would be ideal because all of our sheets, quilts etc. are queen size (and Elliott is probably too tall to sleep on anything smaller). • We'll need parking space (Elliott has a car and I plan to bring mine down from Newcastle in the near future, too). • I'll be relying on public transport for at least a few weeks, so accommodation located reasonably close to public transport is a must. • We would prefer to have our own bathroom/ensuite (if possible) but we're not in a position to be too fussy. • Decent internet/Wi-Fi and heating/cooling is essential.
Single Room available in modern, unfurnished house in Latham, Belconnen. built in wardrobes and fast NBN internet. House in great location. 5 minutes to Kippax shopping centre 10 minutes to Westfield Belconnen 20 minutes to Canberra city 15mins to Gunghalin. 5 minutes to Lake Ginninderra Bus stop at the end of the street Heating for Canberra winters and cooling for Canberra summers. Utility bills would be spilt by three ways. Fantastic location for a great price, plus two cool roommates! We're looking for someone who is friendly and easy going, but who is also respectful of privacy and personal space. Basically just the normal housemate requirements. Someone who is nerdy or gets cheesy outdated movie references would fit in nicely.
WHO: I'm a full-time worker who is clean and reliable but also very quiet. I do tend to keep to myself but I am happy for a chat now and then. I’m vegan, non-drinking and non-smoking (but don’t mind if you’re not), and I am queer-friendly and pet-friendly. My current housemate/landlord can provide a reference if desired. I have lots of sharehouse experience and references are available. WHAT: I’m looking for a tidy place that I can come home to after work and on weekends knowing I can relax in peace and quiet (no ad hoc parties!). I have my own furniture and am hoping to fit a single bed, chest of drawers, bookcase and desk in my room. I also have a small amount of my own cookware for the kitchen, if it can be accommodated. Ideal housemates will be tidy, responsible, and considerate of others. I don’t mind if you drink/smoke/eat meat as long as there’s no smoking indoors or disruptive drunkenness. WHERE: Anywhere in the ACT, so don’t be put off if your suburb isn’t in my preferred list. WHEN: I need to move by June 30 at latest; if moving sooner than that I need to give 2 weeks notice at my current address. HOW: If you would like to meet me and show me your place, please send me a message (with any extra helpful info that is not in your listing), and we'll go from there.

HI, me and sister are looking for a room to share this May. We are from the Philippines who have lived in Melbourne for 2 years.
I'm a Yoga teacher, dancer, photographer, nature-lover. I'm very tidy, thoughtful and responsible. I am independent with a full life, but I also enjoy the buzz and colour of communal living with good-hearted and gentle people. I like to live in places with beautiful light and near to nature.
Female, full time student, studying law. In my final year and applying for internships. Part time working in retail and keen to move on up and out into the law field asap. I keep to myself most of the time. Though I do like the regular movie night and training sessions. I have a dog, titan, that's in training for mind dog program. So he is well behaved, house trained and loving. Would love to remain living in Canberra but it's getting pretty hard to find pet friendly accom as a one person. North Canberra would be my preference... anywhere lol. Keen for team ups

Hi there, My name is Henry. I have been living in Sydney since 2005. With the current company I have been with, they have now provided me with a great opportunity to relocate to the ACT as there project coordinator. Im am currently looking to share accommodation as my commencement start will be 9th July. I’m a very easy to get along with and looking forward to all the cycle tracks in an around the ACT. I’m also very clean and organized. Hope to hear from you soon. Thanks
I have recently moved from Brisbane to Canberra to start PhD studies at ANU. Although I married, I have moved here on my own for three to six months while I get started and prepared. I'm mature and self sufficient, and I enjoy coffee and eating. Ideally looking for a place to share a meal or chat after work and somewhere within walking distance to my office as I also like walking places.
I am looking for a place closer to work (ABS, Belconnen). I am a pretty relaxed house mate who enjoys board games and good food (did someone say cheese...) I am looking for self sufficient friendly housemates who might like to share an occasional dinner/ drink/ movie. I would be looking to move around mid June. If this sounds like it would suit let me know. Cheers, Jethro
I'm a single female public servant with a very friendly, toilet trained indoor cat called Yin (Yinneko). I used to be in the Army and spent most of my 12 year career living with housemates. Since leaving Defence I've been renting alone but miss living with other people and would like to take some stress off my living expenses when my lease runs out in August. I'm a very busy lady: I row competitively so I'm generally out of the house by 530am, I'm also still an Army reservist and sing in a band so I'm rarely home before 6 or 7 pm during the week and tucked into bed by 9. Weekends I like to let my hair down but am generally pretty strict with my weekday routine. I'd ideally like to live somewhere close to the north side of Lake Burley Griffin to reduce my commute each day and so I can return home to shower and change after training each morning instead of dragging half my wardrobe in to the work change rooms each week. Living closer to the city also means I can arrive home earlier and assist with cooking meals, daily chores and relax watching some TV rather than driving 30 mins in and out of the city each direction (more during peak hour), or better yet: walk or cycle to work! When I am home, I like to watch TV or listen to music, podcasts or audiobooks and crochet, cook, sew, or craft. I read avidly, write (songs/journaling) and draw; I also play acoustic guitar, piano and sing, but not all the time: I'll generally save belting my lungs out for band practice at our rehearsal space in Googong. I also like to get out of the house on weekends if the weather is nice: I'll generally go have a picnic, walk, hike, ride my bike, go swimming, take day trips to the beach, snow or local wineries or spend time with my friends. As I've been generally living solo since 2014, I have all of my own furniture including a 2 and 3 seater lounge suite, TV, Refrigerator, Washing machine, and of course my own bedroom furniture as well as a few bookcases, desk and a 6-seater outdoor setting. I am able to palm a few items off to friends and family in VIC so if there is no room, I am happy to only come with what I need. Please remember that I DO come with a furry creature. This is non-negotiable, so if you don't like cats, are allergic or have indoor pets of your own, this may not be the ideal situation. Yin is a Rescue and can get a little territorial around other dogs and cats but is 100% sold on humans. She just LOVES people. She will be the centre of attention at dinner parties and will happily chill and watch TV with you either from your lap or the back of the couch. I am not particularly fond of dogs and ack that not everyone likes cats so I don't take it personally if this turns you off :) I would prefer to get to know any prospective housemates prior to moving in together which is why I'm putting this up so early. My current lease doesn't run out until Mid August, but I'm sure you can agree it makes sense to ensure we get along and our values align. There is also an option to trial cohabitation before my current lease comes to an end if you'd like, noting that the 2Bed/1Bath house I currently live with is a little small but it would give us a good idea of whether or not we think we could live together. I have a few ex-housemates who are more than happy to discuss what it's like living with me. I've remained friends with most of them. I'm looking at 1 year leases with option to continue beyond this if circumstances remain extant.
Hi there, I will move down to Canberra from Sydney for study and work in late Feb or early Mar. I am looking for one or two females/couple to share a flat with for at least 6 months or longer, but I am flexible with the length. I am an easy going and friendly person. I like to make friends, and wish we could become good friends to hang out and have a talk with. But I do respect others' privacy at the same time. I have experience of living with a family with little kid or females over 5 years, so I have learnt how to be considerate to housemates. I am also a quiet, clean, tidy and organised person. I would like to have a room with build-in wardrobe, ideally also is furnished (but I am flexible with that if the rent is a bit lower :P). I have a car, so off-street parking is necessary, of course garage is perfect! I do want the location of the house/flat has an easy access to public transport too, although lower frequency is acceptable. I look forward to hearing some good news from you guys! :)
Hi, Im Cassidy im a full time ANU student studying language. I live a pretty quiet lifestyle, im either at uni or studying. But im also friendly. Im clean, tidy, quiet and reliable and i dont mind doing my share with household duties. comfortable with any animals. Ive had experience renting rooms so i know how it works well enough. It would be great to find a place near ANU, walking distance would be amazing, but i understand its not as likely, so somewhere near a bus stop is great. Get in touch, please contact me if you have a room that is suitable.
My wife loves cooking and we are clean. I love board games and watching movies. Playing video games when time permits.
I'm employed full-time. I'm relaxed and easy going with a good sense of humour. I'm happy to socialise but also pretty good at knowing when to give people some quiet and space. I'm neat and always happy to help out with household chores/maintenance.
Two young professionals looking for a share house in the inner north or central belconnen. We are good friends who are respectful of personal space and boundaries but that also love a chat. We generally like to relax during the week (when not at work) but like to go out for dinner and/or drinks on the weekends. In terms of budget we are looking at $250 each or a total $500p/w :)
