Hi everyone, I will be relocating down to beautiful Tasmania from Sydney in early September (would have been May if not for Covid). I work full time for a not for profit organisation based just outside Hobart, so looking for a room in a share house anywhere around there. I think I’m pretty chilled and always up for a chat but do like my downtime as well. If the house has a dog that would be a bonus. If I don’t lock in a place before I head down I will need to to self isolate up north for two weeks before driving down to Hobart.

We are a couple with a fun loving Swiss Shepherd named Loki. We are looking to make a move closer to the Hobart City around Mid September, as we have been renting a property a fair way out for a while now and would enjoy a shorter commute to work. Both of us work full time- one in the Dental Industry the other in the Financial Sector. We enjoy nights in watching movies, going out for Dinner, Hiking and Outdoors. We are quiet and courteous and respect the privacy of others. We are both very neat and tidy around the house and always clean up after ourselves. Our dog Loki is an outside dog only so just needs some space to run around outside. We are looking a room in a share house, in a well maintained property. Ideally we would like a room with our own en-suite or own bathroom but can be flexible with this for the right property.

Hey! Need a new housemate? Would you like a 31yo musician / vocal coach / artist who is financially responsible, friendly, playful, very clean & considerate, and considers good communication a priority? Want to maybe build something beautiful together, dance in the kitchen and support & celebrate each other? Read on! I generally go by my surname, call me Tilley! (she/her) I’m originally from here, just moved back from Melbourne. (Completed my 2 week quarantine and have negative COVID test results.) At this stage I’ll be staying in Hobart til about Feb, possibly longer, we’ll see. The house I'm looking for will have: Decent sunlight, decent insulation/heating, somewhere off street for me to secure my small motorbike (this can be shed or just a side path or backyard). If the room included BIR, bed, desk, or any other furniture that’d be super helpful, but not essential. I just need enough space for a bed, some storage, some rolling-on-the-floor space, and a desk - or, if the house has a shared office space I could use, that’d be awesome! I’m working from home teaching voice via video call at the moment, only about 5-15hrs a week. Hoping to live with at least 2 others, who are not all male. Hoping to be less than 10min walk away from PT. Keen to continue living without much TV, (Netflix is ok, just not heaps of commercial TV/sports/TV on just as background noise) My desired home vibe: Clean, communicative, kind, collaborative, caring, compassionate... and maybe this time a little bit communal? (I've sampled the household-dinners-together vibe at friends' places recently and decided I'm super into it, not essential though). Love a social house with friends coming over for activities, dinners & movie nights, but not a "party house" (occasional parties are fine! Just not people over getting smashed every weekend.) My home is my sanctuary and I love my alone time and downtime but also, being connected to others is what makes me feel alive. I’d be up for trips to nature especially, having just moved back from 5 years in Melbourne! But this isn’t essential - I know everyone has their own busy lives, just saying I’m up for joining up for fun times if that’s your vibe. More about me: Queer, left-leaning politics, intersectional feminism, currently learning about what it means to be antiracist. Friendly, silly/a total dork, love art/music, real-life philosophy & learning about people & psychology. I'm always singing or listening to music but happy to be asked to be quiet when needed. Usual hours: in bed by 12ish and up around 8am, though it varies. Keen to go on longterm lease. Been renting since age 17, never had bond withheld, never had issues paying rent or bills. I do eat meat, although I am keen to learn more vego recipes/work towards being vego at home. Don't care what you eat, just don't cook fish in the microwave plz (ew). I’m happy to help out in the garden (limited experience / knowledge but can follow instructions!) and with watering houseplants (v sad I had to leave my green babies back in Melbs). We are hopefully all: - Capable of honest, open and clear communication like adults... when something is bothering you you can bring it up and we can negotiate any issues in a collaborative way... no passive aggressive notes or silent treatment. Setting boundaries verbally in a timely manner is cool. - Considerate, clean. Do our share, wiping surfaces after cooking/eating and doing dishes usually straight after eating, etc - Environmentally and energy usage conscious (tending to put some layers on first), but also not stingy, ok with putting on the heating when it’s cold. - Careful with security (diligent with locking doors & windows when leaving). - Keen to know our neighbours & feel connected to community. - Not big drinkers or heavy partiers. - Not working nights and needing to sleep all day (as I will often be making/playing music in the daytime). Bonus points if the home has a piano and/or a bath! Bonus points for any creative types! If you’d describe yourself as a “balanced” person, who doesn’t over-identify with a particular subculture but has varied interests, this might be a good match. Final note: Sadly incense, sage, palo santo etc all make me quite ill, so you’d need to be ok with not using these. If this sounds like a good match, let me know when I can check out the place and meet everyone! Cheers :)

My partner of 4 years and I are looking for shared accommodation and to forge a creative abode. We thrive on meeting new like-minded people. We are not party animals, but we do frequently enjoy hanging out with friends for a social rendezvous. We are both avid cooks, who love getting involved in the kitchen and relish in sharing and learning new recipes. We also know how important it is to keep a clean and tidy household to prevent conflict and promote well-being, which is something we feel well practiced in. I work full time for an environmental science consultancy. You can find me in my spare time either outdoors or taking it easy partaking in a film, book or a having a chat about the human experience. I think you will find that I easily mold into my surroundings and practice open and clear communication. Cello is currently studying fine art at UTAS and a part time disability support worker. Cello is a open and creative minded person who is always willing to having a conversation and participate in housemate activities. She takes great pride in cooking for others and sharing her recipes passed down by her Spanish ancestors.

Hi there, I'm Dylan, a Tasmanian who is moving down to Hobart. Unfortunately not a lot of work for tour guides at the moment, so I'm going back to study and looking for some full time work, while also doing some work for my parents. Seeking a nice, relaxed place in the Greater Hobart region with some nice chill people. A little about me: I'm 25, been to uni, changed track to head into tourism, and now that sadly isn't the best industry to be in I'm down in Hobart to re-skill! In my free moments, I love bushwalking, reading, keeping fit, having a drink or two, getting out and about and meeting people and sharing stories. I'm fairly social, but know when quiet time is necessary. I'm a man who is into men, so if that's an issue, best to skip me. I like gardening, so if you have a garden, I'm happy to take care of it. Years of sharehousing has made me, I think, a solid choice in housemate - I'm tidy, considerate, and I enjoy making a house a home in a respectful way. No problems on the paying bills and rent on time either. Give me a go, and you won't be disappointed. Dylan :~)

My name is Dayna and I'm a 24 year old student at UTAS studying a bachelor of science. I have a 4 year old springer spaniel who is a bundle of joy! I'm an easy going person and don't mind socialising and having a chat. I'm pretty laid back, don't go out partying very often and I'm very respectful of other people.

My name is Kim and I am a student at Utas, looking for accommodation for myself and my fur baby Bronte (cat). I ideally would like my own space - a granny flat in someone's existing home would be perfect. I enjoy knitting, watching Kath & Kim and listening to audiobooks!
