Hey my name's Dom, I'm 26 and currently working full time at a school in the CBD. I'm looking for a place to stay until May 2018 as I'll be heading off to Europe for 6 months! I'm a fun easy going guy, like to go out and socialise, tidy and organised but not OCD level, respectful of personal space and easy to get along with. I'm a pretty good cook too! Most weekends I'm out and about going hiking, camping or filming during the day then socialising with mates at night. Week nights are pretty low key with the occasional beer after work. Looking for a place with easy public transport to the city & to live with someone who enjoys a drink and a laugh from time to time!

I'm a full time veterinarian and I've just recently moved back to Australia after travelling around the world for 2.5 years. I'm looking for a place to call home! I'm laid back and I am generally considered very clean and tidy. I have one very friendly 7 yo collie X called Deni who is predominantly an outdoor dog (good behaviour guaranteed by a vet!). My long list of hobbies include: photography, painting, sketching, yoga, krav maga, welding, woodworking, cooking and trying to learn Spanish. If you think we'd make amazing housemates or want to teamup, please get in touch!

*After a room for a move-in date from early January onwards* I moved to Melbourne a few months ago from Wellington to start a new career in market analytics. I was a makeup artist for ten years and finished a commerce degree in July, so quite a change, but totally loving life sans study! Spare time things involve: coffee, cafes, meditation, yoga, mindful living & healthy food, Terra Madre visits, markets, second hand shopping, exploring Melb & surrounds, going for drinks & hanging outdoors, being active/running/gym, watching & going to the cricket & tennis in summer, being social & spending time with mates. Looking for friendly, warm vibes in a house & a social place where people are keen to get to know each other & hangout. Also, as cute as dogs are, I'm not so keen on living with one.

Looking in: Richmond, East Melbourne, Collingwood, Abbotsford, Prahran, South Yarra

Hi All, I'm Becky (35yo), the L of the gbti+, an occupational therapist in MH, originally from the Uk but have been in Australia for 6 and half years so far... Life revolves around work, friends, brunch, yoga, cycling, singing in Brunswick Women's choir and impossible fitness goals :) Tend to keep weekday evenings quiet & weekends I'm out and about brunching or wine touring and the like with friends. Looking for a place to call home (cliche but true) ideally a spacious Inner East/South share-house with a social/chilled/creative vibe. Housemates have described me as social, tidy and considerate, and so I'd look for the same in housemates. Will always say yes to couple of glasses of red at the end of the week and definitely up for house socials (living with friends is so much better than acquaintances). This is a bit boring but important nevertheless having lived in Australia for 6 years plus, and shared for ever, I now have a couple of "renting must haves" that include; non smoking, heating & cooling, windows without holes and easy parking! (Yes I'm in my mid 30s there's no escaping it) Please get in touch if you have a room with my name on it! Thanks Becky ps Flexible on Price and Heating/Cooling if it is an amazing house!

Hi, I am currently studying opening own business. I like to open my own salon as a Natural Healer at home. I am looking for a room for my bed room and a spare room for my treatment room. I like to rent the room as my salon cheap as well as my bed room other wise a big room which I can use and divide with some room dividers perhaps as my salon. I would like to have a clean beautiful and peaceful space for my clients to enjoy my treatment. There for need street parking for my clients too. I have my own room furniture and will have all my salon gears. I like to have all bills included rent and I won't be using much energy for my salon since it's natural healing technique;) I said 6 months here for length of stay but see how things goes.. I use public transportation so I need easy access to glossary shopping, shops and cafes;) I should be able to do some house work if that help to get cheaper rent;) I am pretty neat and like to have clean environment at all times;) I'd like to start my business from next year!

Hi! My name's Sam and I'm looking for a new place to call home. I’m a 29 year-old male working in tech support and studying physics at RMIT (not to be confused with psychics… I cannot tell the future, sorry in advance). I keep pretty busy during the week, but love to come home to hang out, share a meal (pumpkin pesto pasta is my specialty), have a few drinks, listen to some music or binge watch a TV series or two (currently obsessed with Stranger Things). I also apologise in advance for getting too emotionally invested in the footy. I’m really considerate and clean, especially of all the shared spaces in the house. I’ve lived in share houses before, so I’m pretty comfortable with all the unwritten rules of housemate life. Ideally, I’m looking at anything from $500-760 p/month. Location wise, inner city is good but mostly it’s about finding great housemates who can become great friends. If you’ve got a spare room, or know someone who does, get in touch. Cheers Sam

Hi all, my name is Dylan. Recently graduated uni, and working hospitality 4-5 days a week in the city. I've been a part of the sharehouse game for quite some time, throughout uni, and am looking to make the jump from the southeast to the wonderful northern suburbs! I'm a Tasmanian, and go back a few times a year to visit the trees and endearing bogans. I enjoy a few quiet beers, bbqs, gardening, vegging out with a book on a comfy rug or patch of grass, hiking, roadtrips and tacos. I also like to tinker with things and am a real fan of the versatility of milk crates. I have a decent lot of experience with sharehousing, and can be social or quiet as the house mood calls for. Currently looking for a place in the vicinity of 6 months, but I am flexible in this regard. To have a new place arranged around the 11th Dec would be great, but not essential. Hit me up if you think I'd make a good match for your place!

Heya, I'll be moving sometime in the new year, and with way the rental market is these days, I figured I'd start early and suss out if there's any interest in a team-up for someplace actually liveable. You know, instead of paying through the nose and having to squat out of a cardboard box... Me: a 32yo nurse, working the night shift these days, and am keen to start a home, not just a house. You: late 20s to early 30s, gainfully employed, the usual housemate stuff (pays bills, somewhat tidy, not an axe murderer, etc, etc). Ideally looking for two others for a house of three, but also open to 2-bedroom places. Hit me up if anyone else is in a similar spot. Looking at inner north and west suburbs primarily, but nothing definite yet, so if you have a particular area of Melbourne that tickles your fancy, I'm all ears!

I won't be in Melbourne until January but checking out what's out there before going overseas over Christmas. I'm a considerate housemate who likes to live in a clean and positive environment. I love to socialise but also appreciate some good old 'me-time'. I'm moving to Melbourne to find connection with my creative side and will be working part-time, moving away from my very exciting career in accounting and towards something more fulfilling. Ideally I'll be looking for a furnished room around Yarraville / Footscray or the Brunswick area. I'm a new vegan and would love to live with others who share the same mentality. I also will be living away from my husband and dog and would love to live with kind, considerate people and/or pets :)

Hey g'day everyone! My name's Matt, I'm 23 years old and I'm searching for some cool people to live with. Besides being bloody good at paying rent and bills on time, here's a little about me; I work as a salesperson during the week, normally find me at the gym week nights and enjoy getting out of the house on weekends. If the suns out, there's a good chance I'll be at the beach. I enjoy having a couple beers and a night out, but also like to kick back and relax watching a movie with everyone. I'm always down for a chat, but completely understand people's personal space. However I won't be the guy who stays in his room all day. I have a budget about $190pw and looking at areas around hawthorn, kew, glen iris, malvern, camberwell and surrounding. Ready to move early to mid December.

I'm Will, I'm from the UK and before I came to Australia I was a furniture salesman. But like many people I was bored of my job and didn't want to spend this part of my life wasted in one place so I decided to pack up and start again. I'm looking for a place to stay in Melbourne as I'm really liking this city's wonderful weather, culture, variety of food and abundance of wifi. And hopefully make a few friends while I'm here =). I'm looking for a private room (with ideally a double/ queen size bed but it's not essential) as I do prefer a bit of personal sleeping space/ somewhere to relax by myself but will happily socialise with and spend time to get to know any future house/ flatmates and don't mind how many people are in the property (the more the merrier =D). I can move in (to the right place) as soon as you need. I think of myself as a pretty chill guy with an excellent sense of humour and a terrible attention span. I enjoy binge watching good TV, Netflix and Youtube videos (massive Game of Thrones fan of course XD), listening to good music, dank memes, socialising with friends i.e drinking, gaming (played a lot of League of Legends before I left... poorly I might add) and going out for meals, films etc. I used to do a lot of running and football and hopefully will get back into it soon, as my old job fattened me up a bit and I'm definitely in need of the exercise =P.

Currently studying and working and love being sociable with my flatmates but of course respect their alone time as I like a bit of it myself. I love cooking and have been deprived of a decent oven at my last residence and would love to be able to finally return to my full cooking potential. I absolutely love dogs, a Harry Potter nerd and the love beach as I grew up in a seaside town in Queensland. I'm a moderate gym goer but far from a junkie and love exploring quirky cafes. I like to keep a relatively clean house and like doing my dishes.

Hey Guys, Its pretty important to me I can set up shop with some rad fellas/gals and hopefully around the listed areas, but open to suggestions. Migrating from Brisbane 4+ years ago I am currently working as a PM/Estimator (Mon-Fri) while looking to further myself within the electrical industry and I consider myself to be a pretty chilled out guy and get along with everyone, big pet lover, Rugby fella with the addition of occasional sporadic furniture making. I come complete list of friday afternoon drinks and my complied best beer and burger combos in Melbourne (subjectively opinionated) Scored pretty well in my house training traineeship so you can expect all the good stuff of a quality housemate and I have lived in all girl houses previously so when you need something squashed, moved or someone to anwser the door my hand will go straight up. I'm always down for a hang or a cheeky pint and will often grab my camera and go on an adventure until I get lost But eventually find myself back home with a good story! I'd love to hear about you if you think I might be a good fit otherwise good luck with the hunt! :)
