Johan

Looking in: South Melbourne, Saint Kilda, Richmond, Fitzroy, Elwood, Collingwood, Brunswick, Balaclava

I have all the following key good roomie attributes: - uses headphones to listen to music - washes own dishes, takes out trash - shares food - doesn't walk around nude - not an axe murderer 29 year old advertising professional from Singapore, here on a working holiday. I’m a clean, quiet and considerate housemate; respectful of others' space and enjoy having my own too. Mostly spend my free time outdoors / reading / exercising, am always up for a chat and a cheeky wine but very happy to do my own thing as well.  Hit me up if all this sounds good. Thanks!

Derek

Looking in: Windsor, South Melbourne, Saint Kilda, Prahran, Middle Park, Elwood, Caulfield, Brighton, Balaclava

Sociable but not the party animal in my youth. Drink but not a drunk. Professional and composed but a cheeky larrikan when required. Always ready to assist but not be used. Happy within, so don't need reassurances. Look after myself now, so mum is now jobless. Philosopher without a certificate. Clean and tidy to the point that everything has it's place but not anally retentive. Love to cook in a clean kitchen rather than over the top of last weeks dinner and slurps. Go to the shower to get cleaned and refreshed, not to paste on more dirt. Sport, outdoors and culturally savvy, active but still a beach bum. Integrity, open communication, brutal honesty, morallistic, old school values. Energetic but chilled to be around.

I clean up after myself and pay bills on time! I am completely my social worker degree at RMIT and a bit of a lefty. I only drink occasionally with dinner and don't smoke. I have pets! All super friendly with a 3 year rental reference history. 1 cat 1 female pug 9 years old, 1 male cav 7 years ago and 1 cav cross female 3 years old. The are pretty lazy, sleep in my bed and follow me around. You can get living with awesome animals without the financial responsibility! I am completely my social worker degree at RMIT 1 subject at a time and work in the welfare sector. So sometimes I do shift work. And walk dog's too. I am not a party hound but love seeing live music. I love a good nana nap, don't do parties at home, but I am sociable. Just a regular person

Hi there! I'm a 29-year-old professional wrapping up my PhD and moving to Melbourne from Adelaide for new full-time permanent position on St Kilda road. I'm currently looking for a sunny bright room with enough space for a double bed, desk and chair, preferably furnished and preferably with an ensuite, nearby St. Kilda road or close to public transport. I'd also prefer bills to be included in the rent. I'm tidy, hardworking and determined but also friendly and easy getting oing. I've grown up and lived in five countries and I enjoy exploring new places and experiences. I enjoy jogging, swimming, camping, soccer and cycling. I also love cats. While I'll be focused on a new job, that won't stop me from being a social flatmate who is keen to chill out and relax. Always respectful of space and privacy, clean and willing to help out and listen when it's required. I enjoy having a place with the right atmosphere where we eagerly look forward to coming back to at the end of a long day Looking forward to meeting you and checking out the place! :) P. S. My move in date is non-negotiable on the 24th November.

Hi! I'm Callum a 25 year old traveller on a WHV from England. I have been in a shared house for 4 months and have also has previous experience of shared living during my 3 year undergrad degree. I'm looking for a place until the end of Feb, then I'll be off to do my regional work. My current landlord requires me to move out as he is due to renovate the property. I have been given until the 05/12/2018 to find a new place. I work full-time 9-5 as a property claims consultant, so I will be fairly quiet during the week. I'm always ready to enjoy a pint or 2 at the weekend though! I am a tidy individual, and more than willing to pull my weight around the house.

Henrique

Looking in: Ripponlea, Brighton, Balaclava, Melbourne

Hey, I'm Henrique! Henry is fine though! I'm 25 years old and I'm studying full time 3D Design and Animation. So it's quite normal to see me sketching away while doing some Disney marathons, or just watching Moana again. Harry Potter is also at heavy rotation on my marathons. I'm very easy going, organised, clean and friendly. I respect others privacy as much as I expect mine to be. A fairly good cook, but it comes accompanied by being lazy and very clumsy in the kitchen. Not a good combination. Passionate about art, music and pop culture, but I probably won't be taking sides on a Nicki vs Cardi B feud. Not yet. On the weekends, I like drawing, binge watching shows on Netflix, reading, hanging out with friends and exploring the city.

I love the beach and cooking fresh organic summer foods including salads and fruit smoothies. I like to practice yoga most days and art when Melbourne's weather takes a turn to the cooler side. I work casual in the construction industry mostly week days and intend to spend weekends at the beach. I keep clean and tidy and don't drink anymore. I love inner city suburbs for the life and accessibility especially on PT or skateboard.
