Laetitia

Looking in: Burnley, Alphington, Hawthorn, Richmond, Northcote

I'm Laetitia, a 24 years old French; I'm working as a safety consultant in Kew East - therefore looking for a place near this area. I'm pretty laid back and won't make a fuss at all if you have friends over for a couple days or for dinner. On the contrary, I am someone who likes having people over (I am not a party animal at home though). Also I may have friends coming visiting me from France - now that they have someone to see in Australia they choose this destination for their holidays haha. I like sharing a meal, a glass of wine or one (or ten) episodes of a TV show, but also I like doing my own thing, and I can totally understand when you want to stay alone and I won't bother you. How do I live? Usually during the week I am between work (9-5, well trying to!) and Zumba classes as I practice 3-4 times a week. When I am back home I like to chill before going to bed. During the week-end I can either be out visiting Melbourne areas or totally be binge watching on the sofa, or cooking my lunches for the week.

Erin

Looking in: Abbotsford, Fairfield, Alphington, Northcote, Thornbury, Clifton Hill, Brunswick, Ivanhoe

I'm a 24 year old admitted lawyer who is currently working at the Fair Work Commission (please don't hold either of those things against me!). I'm looking for a place with one or two friendly people who I can hang out with but who also have their own things going on. I'm very friendly and usually up for a chat most nights. I enjoy being social and having people around, although on weeknights I prefer to keep it a bit more chill. I have recently received a beautiful vegetarian cookbook which I'm super keen to try out (although still very partial to a good steak). I love animals so am more than happy to live with any pets. I would prefer to live with flat mates who are similarly working full time. If all of this sounds good feel free to shoot me a message, I'd love to be a part of making a share house a home!

Looking in: Fitzroy North, Preston, Alphington, Clifton Hill, Collingwood

Hi, I'm am Jess, a kind, considerate, respectful human being who is seeking a new abode to call home. I want to contribute to an existing household (house) sociably and environmentally wise, and have prior share-housing experience (current and prior). [open to team ups, but have minimal resources to furnish a place individually, so would outsource collectively if so] Prefer Housemates > housemate My search perimeters are Preston, Clifton Hill, Collingwood, Alphington, and Fitzroy North. Would consider Prahran, Northcote, Thornbury if nearby a train station) Ideally would pay max rent of $170 per week (excluding bills), maximum to $200 per week rent for what I seek in a room, place (month to month, 6 months plus lease contracts ideal) Require a medium sized or larger private, unfurnished bedroom with FLAT TERRAIN (space for Yoga practice and my own bedroom furniture) Built in robes ideal Ideal property has: open loungeroom backyard bathroom with a separate toilet gas cooking chill housemates (non-smokers) 15minutes walking distance from train station (South Morang, Greensborough or Hurstbridge line) I work nearly full time business day hours in the health industry, practice and take class for yoga teacher training, like to dance, walk outdoors, explore Melbourne and inner city skirts, hone back to my young self and rollerblade, cooking (flexitarian), and also am into human movement platforms, film, photography and socialising with friends and family I tend to do my socialising away from household, and keep my room my space to relax. If this is like your share-house, then this works for me. I don't mind if friends visit - some notice is great to communicate to housemates I like animals (pets a bonus), am independent (I functionally and responsibly take care of myself, and my lifestyle, and also expect this of my housemates. Not looking for in each others pocket dynamic. Stable, reliable, honest, and mature beings who prefer to co-reside together and are amicably friendly will be kinship to me, with the probability of the occasional dinner together or recreational group activity. If you have a room that will become available soon, early -mid October onwards and think from reading my criteria description that I have the potential to be a housemate in your abode, please message me with specifics of when the room is available, suburb, housemate bio, rent details and/or share a link to your own flatmates link, and I'll reply asap. Look forward to meeting my potential new housemates, Jess

Looking in: Newtown, Melbourne, Greensborough, Lower Plenty, Geelong, Alphington, Bundoora, Mordialloc, Epping, Fairfield, Northcote

Hi, LOOKING FOR A HOME .... URGENTLY...I AM VERY EASY TO LIVE WITH AND HAVE A GOOD SENSE OF HUMOUR... I am looking for a nice relaxed place to live, I would like my own bathroom, and I am very flexible with the location I am more interested in having a home rather than just a room. I am a writer/director working on the third draft of an Aussie Comedy hoping to shoot the film early 2018, I am in the process of raising the budget. I am a clean tidy considerate person who has a great sense of humour, I like a laugh a meal and a glass of wine, but I also value my space and give you yours, I also pay my bills and rent on time. At the moment I will be writing from home so a study or my own lounge, or even granny flat or studio would be helpful but not a deal breaker as I am looking for an office this year. I am studying film editing on final cut pro. I do have a 11 year old WELL TRAINED AND LOVED DOG AND A LITTLE BLACK CAT so it's important that they have a little space and are safe. I am flexible with moving dates bathroom and budget. Cheers Peita:)

​HEY YOU! Lovely human/s with a spare room/s in your house! Are you: - A houseproud person who loves to create a beautiful, clean, tranquil living space? - Someone who has their own life and likes their own space, but also likes a bit of a cosy family vibe at home, not just living in your bedroom but having occasional chats in th kitchen or over cups of tea or an occasional shared meal? - Someone who likes to have an occasional dinner party/backyard BBQ, but not a big partier/drinker? - Queer-friendly, left-leaning, and friendly? - Non-smoker? (or outside smoker only, but preferably totally non-smoking) Do you: - Love and/or make music and/or art? - Love houseplants maybe a little bit too much? - Not watch TV/not have a TV/watch some Netflix shows on occasion but mostly in your own room? I'm looking for a new home. I'm a little heartbroken right now as 3 months ago I moved into the perfect space, but then the landlord decided they wanted to make more money from it and kicked us out to get a family in :'( Moving into a pre-established home would be preferable, but I'm also open to starting a new house with cool peeps. The issue is that I want somewhere ASAP (Just have to give 2 weeks notice at my current place, but have to be out by Nov 23rd - preferably much sooner as the nearest train station is going to be closed from Oct 6th and that's gonna make life very difficult!!) as I am going to be very busy in late Sept/early Oct and I don't have a lot of time for househunting! At least one female/nb housemate preferred, but could be convinced for the right dude. I'd like to live with 2 people ideally, open to sharing with 1 or 3 but probably not more than that. ME: - 28yo female musician/artist/voice coach. Friendly, silly, queer, sings a lot and sometimes loud but mostly well, and only in reasonable hours/when you aren't home. - I like to be really clean & tidy and make a beautiful home full of art and plants and pretty colours. - Non-smoker. Not much of a drinker. Not vegetarian but not eating a lot of meat at home. - I am really busy and keep to myself a lot working on my music etc, but I lived in a house previously with dudes who just lived in their rooms and I hated it... I love living with people who are down for chats and cosiness and laughs together when our schedules line up. WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR IN A HOUSE: - Preferably an actual house, not an apartment. - Sunshine! - Close or otherwise convenient to grocery stores (I don't have a car, only bicycle/motorbike/PT) - OSP for my small motorbike (can just be front yard or small side path) - Either quite cheap rent (between $500-800/month) for just a bedroom, OR... - Open to paying $800-$1000/month for somewhere that has an extra sunroom/study/office space from which I could teach voice students (or a very large bedroom which I could split with a divider to make into a semi-professional space.) - I am also currently renting a studio in Brunswick which I teach from 2-3 days a week. If my new home is around $500 - 700, I could afford to just teach from the studio 4-5 days a week. If it's $700-800, I'd wnna teach from home a couple days a week (so I could get someone in to share the costs of the studio)... if it's $800+ I'd want to be teaching exclusively from home as I wouldn't be able to also afford the studio. If I sound like a good match for your home and vice versa, please get in touch!

I spent most of my 20's travelling solo around the world. Ive lived in communities and sharehouses for most of my adult life. Now I teach public speaking skills to kids in schools. Im also a Marriage Celebrant and Yoga Teacher. My daughter is with me 80% of the time. She is 7 years old (not 16 as the listing made me write). She is one of those well articulated awesome small humans who is a delight to live with. I like to keep communal areas tidy. I have a flair for interior design and I come with furniture. We are looking for a lively, family minded couple or a single parent with one (maybe 2) kids who want to 'do life' side by side. By that I mean, have our own space but also have the enthusiasm to create a thriving life.

Hey guys! Looking for a room around the Richmond/Hawthorn/Kew and surrounding areas. I'm a 26 year old kid from country NSW who's lived in the outer eastern suburbs since I moved here last May, so I'm looking to move closer to the city to try find me some pals and one of those social lives everyone talks about, I feel like I'm missing out on heaps living way out here. I work in sales in the sports nutrition industry at the moment (very heavily discounted supps if I like you), looking to perhaps continue my degree in business next year or study something else entirely. I've lived in share houses for around 2 years now so I'm familiar with the privacy and cleanliness side of things that comes with it. I'm a laid back kinda guy, enjoy a few beverages, massive Richmond supporter, love getting out and about but equally enjoy chilling out with a good book or tv series. Ideally after a sociable place to help me experience what Melbourne has to offer! Cheers! Ryan.

Looking in: Fairfield, Alphington, Eltham, Rosanna, Briar Hill, Montmorency

I love Nature and the Spiritual practices of First Nation peoples. I really enjoy traveling and meeting new places and food to try. I love snuggles with my cat Maggy. I like to laugh and have a good sense of humor most of the time. I love cycling, swimming, and yoga although I fall off the fitness wagon sometimes. Red wine, rose, sparkling make me happy at the end of the week. I love organics and living responsibly, therefore Terra Madra Organics is a place I spend way too much money. I am a teacher and an Art Therapist finishing my Masters this year. A real home that is tended to is important to me. I love my pot plants, but I don't hug them they are too small! I can be irreverent, I think it's important. I am a loving and caring human being with all the complexities and messiness as the rest of humanity in the state of growing and becoming what is next! I am pretty easy going and am good at communicating and keeping a nice vibe in a home. I like clean spaces but I am not uptight about it. I have bouts of Netflix watching that can last hours and I love to sing.

Looking for someone to move into a home with me and my pup! Looking in the Macleod and Rosanna area but also looking in surrounding suburbs. You'd be living with myself and my Japanese Spitz puppy. I am an easy going 26 year old Canadian, full time job (of 4 years) that's currently in the city but soon to be in Preston. I'm looking for someone who is as chilled as I am, hangs out every now and then but not in each others space, keeps shared areas clean, ontime with rent, and loves dogs! I'm looking at 2-3 bedroom homes no more than $400 a week. Most have been around $320-$380 (meaning rent would be under $200 each). Looking to move out between now and the next two months. Anyone is welcomed but children (not looking for a place that will suit a child's needs) and maybe not pets depending on how mine and yours gets along. Please message for more information about myself or if you are keen to househunt or if I find a place on my own you'd be interested to move in :)

I am very laid back and easy going, am up for sharing a meal and/or a drink, watching a movie or even going to a cafe/restaurant.

34 years old and work as a freelance photographer and an arts therapist. At the moment, I work from home about 3 days a week (editing and planning) and 2-3 days out on location. I'm into sharing meals, wine, heart to heart chats and all that good stuff to get to know the people I'm living with. I value people and open communication. I would like to live in a home with people that are open to cultural differences, after all diversity is the spice of life. I'm interested in permaculture, but yet to gain the skills, willing to put the hours into the garden to get my thumbs green. I'm quirky and creative. I enjoy gatherings and being social and every now and again I'll go off on a silent retreat when I need a little zen time and clarity. I love all kinds of music from around the world. Other loves... nature, dancing (african and latin), yoga, travel, movies, documentaries, food, talks that scratch the surface, acting like a kitty cat and putting on random accents. If I sound like your hommie to be, feel free to contact me :) I'm looking to move early November 2017. Marlène (aka Marz)
