Hey! So my name's Amanda and I've been in Melbs almost a year now. I'm looking for somewhere to call home, particularly close to the CBD. I'm really easy going and very tidy (bit of a clean freak). I love throw it down in the kitchen so expect a meal every now and then. I also love to socialise over a drink or two every now and then but I also like to have my quiet time. If I'm not working or studying then I'm probably just watching a series or planning my next adventure. Looking to find an awesome roommate who'd be a great friend too :)

Tyson

Looking in: Port Melbourne, Cremorne, Windsor, Richmond, Balaclava, Elwood, South Yarra, South Melbourne, Albert Park, Prahran, Saint Kilda

A little about me... I'm 32. I moved to Melbourne in April. I'm a personal trainer and crossfit coach but also work for lululemon the clothing brand. yes lots of active wear. ahaha I love going to the gym, yoga and keeping active. But also enjoy coming home to chill out and occasionally binge watching netflix and cooking a good meal with roomies and friends. My heavy partying days are behind me but i don't mind the odd night out occasionally. I'm never one to bring the party back, i'm more likely to smoke bomb from a bar before the after party is thought of. I'm respectful of people's space and privacy. Im a believer in having the house neat and tidy and smelling nice. i'm currently house and puppy sitting until the 11th of August so need to find a place ASAP!! I've never been kicked out or been late on bills in other previous house sharing. You'd be very lucky to have me live with you :):) My previious jobs include carpenter, cook in a fine dining restaurant in canada and a daycare teacher.

Hugh

Looking in: Ripponlea, Windsor, Prahran, Saint Kilda, Elwood, Balaclava

Hey everyone! I'm a 22 year old professional working full time as a media manager for a travel company, and currently on the hunt for a place in the St Kilda/Balaclava area - ideally beginning in September. Having not long exited uni, I'm a very sociable kind of person who loves to hang out with drinks and good food, and am always open to nights on the couch watching something binge worthy. In my own time I'm usually at the gym or with mates, or indulging my creative side with a camera of some sort. Generally a very chilled and tidy person, but always up for a laugh and quality banter. I do travel a fair bit for work and run fairly long days, however I'm always happy to pitch in with household jobs and pull my weight. For anyone who's interested in getting something together, flick me a message and we can go from there!

Monica

Looking in: Saint Kilda, Williamstown, Balaclava, Newport, North Melbourne

I am a clean person in shared areas, in my own I enjoy organised chaos, I love to cook when the mood strikes. I paint and am quite an introvert when home. I like to watch horrible tv shows and listen to music and chill (sometimes I sing hope that's okay.. especially when cooking) I am not a party animal, In fact I just got a job that's shift work in the city so I'll pretty much be asleep for life. I keep to myself but I do like to have a chat and a giggle with my house mates when I'm home. I do manage to be busy though so I'll pretty much live out of the house or in my room. As a side note though i am looking for a large room preferably. Very happy to team up in west or south eastern suburbs. Thanks for reading.

Cameron

Looking in: Elwood, Windsor, Caulfield, Prahran, Saint Kilda, South Yarra, Richmond, Balaclava

I'm easy going and can talk about anything. I don't take myself too seriously though value doing a good job of things and being reasonable and respectful. I'm clean and tidy and don't leave a foot print (so to speak). I'm most often away with work and at the gym and attending other social events. I'm very independent and also mindful of other people's space. I also have a robust sense of humour which can be important for creating good vibes :) BTW I'm also quite flexible with the move date (any weekend or week day until 5/8) and length of stay. I can potentially stay much longer than 6 months - just thought that might be a good length of time to start on. I'm also very pet friendly in case you have pets.

Ya-Ping

Looking in: Caulfield, Saint Kilda East, Glen Huntly, Armadale, South Yarra, Balaclava, Caulfield North, Malvern, Carnegie, Caulfield East

Hello! I'm Ya Ping from Taiwan. I have been studying master in Monash for 1 year while living in my auntie's house. I think it's time for me to move out and live somewhere close to the uni (Caufield campus). Surviving on a part-time job and a study loan, I'm looking for a shared room or house on a budget of $160/w. I'm caring, mostly-happy and always respect others so would be ideal to be your next housemate or tenant. Reviews from my previous roommates: "You are the best roommate and the best friend ever!" "I wonder how you always keep the public area clean and tidy while your room is such a mess." "Even though you sleep a lot and never hear your alarm, I'd still like to live with you forever."
