Brendan

Looking in: Spotswood, Saint Kilda, Williamstown, Seddon, Richmond, Balaclava, Newport, Yarraville

Hi I’m Brendan I am looking for a long term household to share with nice responsible housemates with my dog just as long as its a harmonious household. I’m 43 & just re entered hospitality after a long hiatus formerly worked as a personal carer in Aged care for many years. I am quite & easy going have a love of music & european films & book reading yes maybe a bit of a geek. I am looking for a household where we treat each other with respect & can keep a tidy house ( I am not a clean freak but a housemates record of leaving the dishes on the sink for 5 weeks is not for me) & communicate be social or have our own space if needed. I am able to move now but I am currently on a fortnight to fortnight basis for giving notice. a 15 kilometre radius to the CBD is preferred but not essential ( love the area around Williamstown where I currently am.) I can afford up to 680 pcm I am trying to quit smoking but will only smoke outside. If you just want someone urgent just to pay rent its best not to contact me. Lucy is a 8 year old Blue Heeler she would probably like to be the sole dog but she has lived with dogs before she is very affectionate & fully house trained she sleeps in my room the yard would need tall fencing & be secure she is not able to live with cats. Thanks for taking the time to read my add if you have a room or know of someone who my please message me ; I don’t have FB switched on my phone & no internet at home but will check daily so there might be a delay in my response.

Lotta

Looking in: Ripponlea, Balaclava, Saint Kilda East, Prahran, Windsor, South Yarra, Burwood, Saint Kilda, Richmond, Malvern East

Hi! I am a 22-year-old study abroad student looking for a place to live for the spring semester. I am originally from Finland but I have been living in the United States for the last four years. I am an easy going, former athlete who can either socialize or keep to myself. I love going out and having a good time as much as I like hanging out with friends, cooking and watching netflix. I am a big fan of sports as well. This will be my first time in Australia but I am excited to see what the Aussies have to offer!

Ally

Looking in: Avondale Heights, Essendon, Hawthorn, Balaclava, Burnley, Caulfield, Windsor, Coburg, Prahran, Toorak, Collingwood, Richmond, Maribyrnong, Moonee Ponds, Ascot Vale, North Melbourne, Fitzroy, Brunswick, Parkville, Carlton

Hi there! I'm a postgraduate student at Unimelb, and I'm looking for a private room. Looking for something that's close to public transport - this is pretty important to me. A furnished room is preferred, as I haven't got furniture with me. Move-in date is flexible. I do have to study a lot, so I'll need a quiet place because I'm one of those people who just can't study with noise :( but in my downtime I'd love to chat and have a laugh with my flatmates! I'm looking to make friends and not just to fill a room :) I'm a very positive and friendly person. I love a good laugh and enjoy dad jokes/puns/memes :P I keep my stuff (and the house) neat and clean. When I'm not studying (which is hardly ever) I'm reading, or watching TV shows or movies. Huge cricket fan, and will watch and enjoy pretty much any sport :D I'm new to the city so I'd also like to explore the place but haven't really got round to it yet haha! I hope I've covered everything (these things are hard to write!). Please message me if there's anything you'd like to know :) Cheers, Ally

Patrick

Looking in: Elwood, Saint Kilda, Balaclava

Hi I'm Patrick 25, currently on a working holiday visa from Ireland. Little about myself, currently working six day weeks and play sport four nights a week. So I'll very rarely be in the house. I enjoy trying new things and meeting new people. I will be looking to socialise during the weekends and do enjoy having a drink, but nothing to crazy as I'm currently saving to travel the East Coast. Tidy, considerate and friendly.

Matt

Looking in: Abbotsford, Cremorne, Armadale, Carlton, Hawthorn, Windsor, Fitzroy, Prahran, South Yarra, Richmond, Balaclava, Collingwood

Hey pals, I work full-time managing a cafe in Armadale. while I study design, part-time in the CBD. I'm quite social and enjoy sharing beers and dinner with my housemates. Not interested in sharing a house with someone who sits on their laptop in their room all night. Most weekends are quiet but I do enjoy a night out when conditions are permitting. I work most weekends, unfortunately. I enjoy all things music (although never learning an instrument). Love going to gigs when I can. I do have some records that you're welcome to listen to anytime. I'm pretty laid back and easy-going. There'll be no passive aggressive notes on the fridge waiting for you when you get home! haha. I'm quite honest and compassionate in nature. Having grown up with a household filled predominantly by women, I'm quite considerate of others in all aspects of sharing a house. I clean up after myself and compromise where necessary. I'm ready to move in now with bond and rent money available to be handed over! Happy to go on the lease as well. Looking for a year or more in the one place. Please ask for references if you'd like.

Hi, Im 27 years old, persian/swede. Working within retail and hospitality. For the moment I live in a shared house in Windsor, but the lease is ending and I need to find a new place. I'm a person who likes my home tidy and clean. I don't spend much time at home but when I do I like it pretty quiet, and its important to respect each others privacy.

Heather & Joe

Looking in: Windsor, Fitzroy, Saint Kilda, Balaclava, Collingwood

We are 24/25, are both from the UK and have been together for 9 years (cue the gasps of shock)! We lived in London for a couple of years but decided that now was the time to see more of the world! Although we haven't got jobs in Melbourne as we speak, we plan to have this lined up by the time we land. We are down to earth, friendly, sociable, and enjoy leading a busy lifestyle. Outside of work, we love to run, go to the gym, read, chill out watching films and enjoy a drink or two. We have both lived in shared accommodation before so are aware of household etiquette (if that's what it's called) and are keen to do so again in Melbourne!

Amanda

Looking in: Toorak, Balaclava, Camberwell, Flemington, Kensington, Fitzroy North, Carlton, Caulfield, Fitzroy, Richmond, Melbourne, Collingwood, South Yarra, Prahran, Saint Kilda

Hello! I've just moved to Melbourne after having spent the last decade split between California, Finland and Germany. I am searching for an affordable, furnished or partially furnished room in a flat or house share.(If need be, I can also furnish a room, don't hesitate to write!). I'm flexible with regard to rental length as well, whether something shorter or longer term. I translate and edit professionally, so I am occasionally around at home to do that, although more often than not I'm out and about working or exploring. I'm increasingly involved in music production and web design as well professionally and for myself. I like to play ice hockey and music (with headphones at home, with amplifiers elsewhere ;)). I'm quite interested in politics, science, tech and the world at large. I am tidy, responsible and quiet. I'm happy to socialise with housemates, and it's nice to catch up for a meal together and to be able to chat. I enjoy cooking and baking a bit. I don't have pets or kids, am consistently employed, and can pay rent/bills/bond on time. I'd prefer to live with people who don't smoke indoors as I don't smoke myself. I am bilingual (German/English) and happy to practise Finnish and French if you're keen. It would be lovely to keep up/brush up on languages :) I am quite flexible with regard to location so long as good public transit connections are nearby, as I do not own a car (although I am after a bike here soon :)) and am fully at the mercy of Melbourne's trains, trams and buses for now ;) Looking forward to hearing from you, thanks!
