I am a 25 year old professional female who works full time as an early childhood educator. I am an easy going house mate who has lived in a variety of situations, with a range of people over the last 8 years and this has taught me to be patient, flexible and respectful. I am often busy with my own work, study and social life but am always more than happy to get to know who I’m living with and share a meal or a drink when we are both around. I’m neat and tidy and will happily help out in any way I can :)
Nothing makes me more happy than seeing others happy, so I am always there for you to cheer you up and give you a nice word! I am a friendly, chilled out and tidy girl. I am always up for a chat, like sports (kitesurfing, running, biking, snowboarding) as well as all the outdoor activites and have an endless love for music (love singing).
21, female. I have been living in Sydney all my life, last 2 and a half years living in a share house. I will be moving to Melbourne some time soon, either in the middle of this year or end. I am looking for a place where I can have my own space; either a 1 bedroom place, studio apartment or granny flat. I have my own furniture (so furnished or unfurnished won't be a problem). I am quiet, I tidy up after myself, I pay my rent on time. I avoid using the dryer and do not leave lights on and waste electricity. Non smoker, I do not have pets. My budget is very low at the moment because of my work situation so I can only afford $180 per week. At absolute most, $200 per week (including bills and internet). Due to some health problems with rheumatoid arthritis I will need a place close to public transport and local shops/grocer.
Hi futur flatmates, We are a french couple in our early thirties. We just arrived in Melbourne for working as a full time job after 9 months traveling in Oz, NZ and Asia. We are looking for a flatshare, isn't the best way to know people and feel comfy in a new environment, is it? We lived 5 years in a flatshare in France, Spain, Uk or finland, so we are used to respecting collective rules. During our free time, we love to do sport, to go out to restaurants or just to chill with a fresh beer. We are looking forward to seeing you We want to live the melbourne Way of life .
Hey everyone! I’m a responsible, clean, friendly musical type looking for a new home! EITHER: - Sublet/short term/housesit for 2-3 months, $600/month or less - OR long term/permanent home for about 1yr+ $700/month or less (will consider more for the perfffeck place tho). Available to move in NOW. Read on for details! I'm a 28 year old friendly & housetrained musician, I have a steady income teaching voice, modelling, & working in events. Been renting for 11 years and never had trouble paying rent or bills. I'm super clean & tidy. I sing a lot but I'm apparently pretty good at it. (I don't mind if you sing badly though! No judgement!) I don't drink much but up for a wine now and then, I don't smoke (no indoor smoking houses please). Looking for somewhere preferably northside, no more than 20min drive to Brunswick, preferably more like 20min cycle or if not then close to trains :) I wanna live in a HOME, not just a house... with friendly people who have their own lives and value time alone, but also want to hang out regularly/chat at the end of the day over a meal or wine or tea and do stuff together now and then. I'm done with houses where I hardly ever see anyone, time for a housefam vibe! Bonus points if you're musical/artsy, especially if you like funky music, and the decor style is art & houseplants. If you don’t have a TV that’s A-OK with me. Super bonus if the house gets good sunlight…! I need somewhere off-street to chain up my little postie motorbike (garden/side path is fine). --- For shortterm places: Looking for somewhere til early or late May. $600/month or below would be best. Open to roomshare for the right place/people. --- For longterm places: I come with hardly any furniture (so I'm looking for an already established place), but I do have a (very small, halfsize upright) piano I would love to bring, so hopefully there's a nook for it somewhere? (you are welcome to play it!) If there’s no room for it / already a piano in the house (!) I can put it in my studio, so no biggie. I'll be away for 2 months in either May/June or June/July, so you'd need to be okay with me sub-letting my room during that time (but I am very protective of my home & belongings, so you can bet your booty I'll be choosy about who comes in, and you get a say in it too of course.) --- Hit me up if you think I might be a good match for your home! I can move in literally any day but really need to find somewhere by the end of Feb. xox
We are an extremely friendly couple who love meeting new people and making new friends. Josh is from New Zealand I am from the UK, we met whilst travelling around Southeast Asia where we fell in love with Vietnamese coffee and Pho. I am very tidy and find it difficult to live in a mess so promise to keep our home clean. Josh is also very tidy, although I'm trying to teach him to make the bed in the morning. I have recently started working at a restaurant in Fitzroy, the hours are only part time at the moment but will be full time over the next few weeks. Josh is currently back in New Zealand but will be joining me here in a few weeks and seeking a full time job. We are both very reliable and will keep up to date with all rent and bills. We like to consider ourselves good company, and would love to spend time getting to know our flatmates over a glass of wine or two. Our free time is spent hanging out, watching movies, or exploring the city. We have an endless list of places we want to eat in Melbourne and would be very happy for our new flatmates to join us!

Hello, I am originally from London and I am moving to Australia for a year on a working holiday visa on the 10th of February! I am a working professional in London with a full time job as a receptionist and i will be working in hospitality also when i get to Melbourne. My plan is to stay in Melbourne for 6 months to work and meet lots of new people! I love to have fun and have a laugh and I am a positive, happy and friendly person. I love to hang out with friends and be sociable but as a housemate i will also respect peoples space and privacy. I like to keep things tidy and clean and will take on my fair share of housework. I am vegan myself but have absolutely no problem living with people that are not. This is my own decision to live as vegan and i do not try to enforce this on anyone, I respect everyone's choices. Some of my interests are running and exercise, reading, writing, music, meditation and spending time with friends. If it sounds as though we could get on well living together then feel free to message me. I look forward to finding my new housemate(s) in Australia :)
Im relocating from WA, looking for a room and/or team up for long term rental. Looking for inner suburbs, working 9-5 monday to friday, sociable at the weekends, like to be clean and tidy. Looking for other professionals for easy going place
Hi, my name is Kim, I am an art director from Hamburg, Germany. This is my first time in Melbourne and I would love to get to know this city better and meet nice people. I'm looking forward to explore new places like restaurants, bars and art museums but I am also very laid back and happy with watching a good movie or draw in my spare time. I am a clean and thoughtful person, so you don't have to be worried about our future household :)
I have recently taken the plunge to leave my full-time professional job in Western Australia and pursue a Master’s degree in Melbourne! I’ll be studying at the University of Melbourne and looking to find a place that’s not too far away and within good range of public transport. I am an easygoing, respectful and clean housemate. I love good conversations and spending quality time with people but am also fairly quiet and independent. I love to travel and am excited to explore my new home city! Outside of studying I enjoy reading, walking, visits to the cinema, sampling craft beers, and Zumba. I would help maintain a tidy home and though my cooking skills leave much to be desired, I am good at washing up! I love animals and would be ultra happy to find somewhere that has a cat or dog :)
We are Elise and William, a french couple coming from Paris. We moved in Australia on the 15th of February for a 1-year WHV, and we are now looking for a 6 months housing in Melbourne. We are friendly, open-minded, tidy, clean, and respectful people ;) William is looking for a job in IT engineering and Elise in hospitality and foodservice industries. Feel free to call us as we would be very happy to meet you and talk a bit more with you ! Cheers :)
Hello !! I'm a cook full time and Saskia is studying sociology at UoM and working part time. We're both friendly, easygoing and clean, and happy hanging out as well as keeping to ourselves. 420 friendly, we pay bills on time and keep the place tidy, I'll cook up nice food (Sas is vego!) and we're both creatives :-)
Hello! I'm a study abroad student at Uni of Melbourne, originally from the US. Generally keep to myself but would not mind chatting over a drink. I enjoy cooking for myself and other, and clean up after myself. Hoping to get to know the city better over the next few months!
Extremely respectful of people, their castle & belongings, their down-time (chilling out) and which ever way they choose to live. Avid yogi, animal lover, fun seeker. Im easy to get on with, wonderfully open minded and just pretty chill in general. Huge fan of cleaning and things being tidy but on the down side I probably need to spruce up on my cooking abilities- I'm not going to lie they are far from good!! The other downer about me is that I'm currently in QLD and i'll be moving down from the sunny state once I have established place and happily be making the commute to my new home for whoever will have me.... feel free to ask me any questions and I guess i'm looking forward to whatever is out there. :) Cheers T PS - I'm quite flexi on the move in date should I find the right pad
I've lived in share accommodation for eight years now, and am pretty savvy with the ins and outs. I'm tidy, I don't party much anymore (though can be convinced pretty easily), and have a trade in horticulture (which means I really, really like plants.) I consider myself a conscientious and drama free person to share a space with. Ideally looking for people who agree with me on everything and want to pay for my ubers, but I'll settle for nice, genuine, and responsible young adults :) I'm very adaptable, and really don't mind if you're a big household of 6 artists and students between the ages of 18 and 58 who all have different schedules and like to host candle making classes in the kitchen on weeknights, or whether you're a quiet couple looking for a rent-subsidising third wheel to live in a spare room, and be seen but not heard. Either or anything in between will work. Just very very very keen to get into my first Melbourne sharehouse. (I just realised, I never mentioned that I just moved down from Sydney.)
Hi! I'm Joshua, a doctor originally from Italy (to my excuse, they say I do not look like one), relocated to Australia 2 years ago. I have just started a new job in Heidelberg and looking to relocate in the Collingwood / Abbotsford area so that I can enjoy a bit of city life after commuting back from work. In my spare time I like to go for runs / bike rides, exersicing (Yoga/Gym) and the occasional gig or movie. I do love cooking, and do it well (in all modesty). I'm looking for a chill flat for a short/mid term to suss out the area. Let me know if any of this sounds interesting! Cheers Josh
My friend Russell is of the opinion that dating apps are great for finding flatmates and that sharehouse ads are great for finding dates. Tinder's in-house sociologist Dr. Jess Carbino says that the more information a user can share, the better (I should probably cite this reference). With that in mind I’m approaching finding a new home with the desperation of being single for the past five years and have outlined my prospective personal advertisement below. I have followed an OKcupid template because it prompts you with questions. Before you go any further! I would like to be able to have my dog Onion around for at least part of the time. She has doting grandparents in the country and I will likely split my time between the city and Castlemaine so she will not be around constantly. I like some degree of communal living at home and need a garden to potter in. Also preferably cheap, I don’t want to live in a perpetual state of rent stress. My self summary I’m about to start the second year of my Masters in Stage Design at VCA. I am artistic but extremely practical. I like to garden and grow my own food. I have a lot of indoor plants. I make 1:25 scale models for productions and make mini replicas of furniture from my house. I like it very much. I am 34, my birthday is in June, I am 5’ 8” tall, and currently weigh around 60kg. I like the oxford comma. My favourite colour is brown which is the most disliked colour in the world. I have mostly had relationships with women and probably fall under the queer umbrella. I am a vegetarian. My Meyers Briggs type is INTP. My arts practice is participatory and I am interested primarily in a collaborative theatre practice. According to EHarmony, highlighting certain traits gets you more replies. Here are five words men might want to consider putting in their online dating profile: 1. Physically fit (+96% more interaction than daters who did not use this word). I ride a bike for transport and do a lot of building so am reasonably strong. I don’t go to gyms or exercise for pleasure. I do have an active dog so that requires a modicum of energy. 2. Perceptive (+51%) Look I think I’m pretty insightful but my intuition regarding people is usually off. I suck at choosing flatmates and partners and usually wait for people to befriend me. 3. Spontaneous (+45%) I am NOT spontaneous. I need to plan in advance. Unless it is about food. Yes we should quietly cook 9 litres of soup at 11pm. 4. Outgoing (+44%) The definition of this is “friendly and confident” which is deceptive. Yes I am these things but need a lot of incentive to ‘go out’ and do them. 5. Optimistic (+39%) I am optimistic in regards to achieving design outcomes. You want to do that?! Yes lets figure out a way to do it. But I’m a realist. And pessimistic about the human race. 5 words women might want to consider putting in their online dating profile: 1. Ambitious (+48%) Yes, I am ambitious. I think this is one of my defining characteristics. 2. Perceptive (+46%) See above in the men’s section. 3. Sweet (+33%) I can be pretty salty but I will make you dinner or bake coconut cream pie for my classmates for no reason. 4. Hard working (+32%) Yes very. I work myself to the ground. It can be a problem. 5. Thoughtful (+28%) “absorbed in or involving thought” I am developing those ‘eleven’ wrinkles between my eyebrows. But I think they mean “showing consideration for the needs of other people” – see above under Sweet ie Salty. Dr. Jess Carbino (remember her from EHarmony?) also says people’s chances decrease by 15% when they wear glasses. What the hell! Glasses really frame a face. I wear glasses. I'm really good at Finding creative solutions. Caring for plants and animals. Setting expectations of myself too high. I am a good cook and understand flavour profiles unlike my father who constantly tries to substitute parsley for coriander. The first thing people notice about me My hair currently resembles that of Samuel Beckett on a windy day. Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food I tend to only read reference or non-fiction books with the exception of plays. I do not like Shakespeare with the exception of Titus Andronicus because of the difficulty of staging all the bloodshed. I subscribe to the New Yorker but they pile up so fast they are mostly just set dressing at this point. I like to do audio descriptions of the cartoons. I am currently reading a biography of Thornton Wilder. I have cried watching all of these Oscar buzzy films in the last month or so: Call Me By Your Name; I, Tonya; Lady Bird; Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri (I love Francis McDormand but this film should not have won Best Picture at the Golden Globes); Coco. Also two extremely underrated Meryl Streep films: Plenty and Defending Your Life. If you don’t like Meryl Streep I will be very suspicious of you. She can be very restrained, don't get caught up in her more "actorly" roles. Tampopo Bridesmaids Saturday Night Live Levitated Mass, that documentary about the artist Michael Heizer The works of Paolo Sorrentino. I enjoy a wide variety of music. I particularly enjoy classical minimalism and listening to Golden Days Radio 95.7 FM and any station that has love song dedications. The Independent (dubious news source I know) says that listing food on your dating profile results in more replies. They suggest that listing guacamole would result in a 144% increase in respondents. Well guess what? I do like guacamole. I am currently propagating avocado seeds to sow a plantation. It is my little agricultural nest egg. Their second suggestion is potatoes at 101%. This is a bit perplexing. I do quite like potatoes and think they are severely underrated and more varieties should be grown in this country. They are very easy to grow. I suggest a mixture of straw and manure. I had a very bad food poisoning experience after eating at a Michelin Star restaurant in Spain in 2010 so I have an extreme dislike of truffles and truffle oil. I will gag. Again, I am a vegetarian. The six things I could never do without Toothpicks, cordless drill, a pencil (I prefer a 2H or H, who decided HB was the standard?), my dog Onion, an optional hat, and look to be honest probably a stash of pharmaceuticals because I get a lot of headaches. I spend a lot of time thinking about Conversations I should be having out loud. I really do worry a lot. Dramaturgy. Whether my mood will improve if I eat something. On a typical Friday night I am Unfortunately probably staring at a computer. What I am looking for in a partner In an ideal world I’d like to be with someone who wants to make things with me, ie someone in the theatre industry. Directors, actors, engineers? Is that bar too specific and high? Yes. Someone who wants to co-parent my animals. Something long term. You should message me if You want to live with me, you want to date me, you want to offer me a casual retail job, you want to be my friend.
Hello there, Major dork seeks nice new home. Im originally from kiwiland. I've been here nearly a year now and have been residing in CarIton North. Sadly I have to vacate my much loved apartment as my landlords cousin wants to move in. I'm keen to stay north side in virtually any suburb with easy access to the M3 (southern link). Some fun stuff about me... I work full time as a clothing designer. Aged 28 if that matters, although I mostly behave like I'm in my late 60's. Im open minded, and am looking for a queer friendly household. I'm also quite chatty, but love my own company too, 50/50 introvert extrovert sort of deal. Some other things I like... I'm bit of a crafter, I like to draw and sew things. yoga/meditation Hiking live music Reading and podcasts I'm on the lookout for kind people that want to make home a nice place to be. I don't have heaps of stuff, just some plants. Im a bit of a minimalist probably. I like to make things look nice and am keen to jazz up a space if you are! Trips out of the city are great, always keen for wee adventures and whatnot. I also have a car and it would be good to have somewhere to park it. On street is fine. I can be flexible with moving dates. I will need somewhere before mid April though. Thanks for reading :) Feel free to get in touch with questions.
