Looking in: Toorak, East Melbourne, Armadale, Windsor, South Yarra, Richmond, Prahran, Fitzroy, Elwood, Balaclava

Hi there! I'm Candice, I'm 28 and I'm an interior designer. I am currently looking for a small share house within inner-city Melbourne. I love the sun, botanical gardens, produce markets and enjoy chilled rosé come aperitif hour. I try to ride my bike as much as possible (weather permitting!) so something within cycle distance to work would be great too. Cleanliness and tidiness are very important for me, as is being considerate of others. I am very respectful of other people, their spaces and belongings. That said, I know how to relax and have fun too. I would like to find a housemate who identifies with these qualities, and who seeks a friendly and warm home atmosphere.

I am searching for a furnished room in inner Melbourne from 6 August until 30 September for a short-term visit. Good PTV connections are a bonus. Compulsory bio: I work in web development and translation and am coming to Melbourne for a few weeks. I play ice hockey and music. Most of my spare time is spent playing music out and about (not at home). I am into meal prepping a bit, and I bake quite decent peanut butter chocolate cookies and banana bread. I'm always trying to improve my cooking skills and try out new things. Aside from music and sport, I enjoy hangs with mates, and am looking forward to exploring Melbourne. I'm pretty impressed by the tropical birds around Australia (rosellas, lorikeets, cockatoos... I've spent the last decade split between Berlin, Finland, and California, where the birds are just not as colourful). I'm easy-going, tidy, and quiet. Banter and chills are good. I am usually up for a good chat or meal with housemates, but enjoy doing my own thing, too. I'm interested in tech, medicine, foreign languages, current events, and spend a fair bit of my down time in front of a computer. I do eat meat although I am trying a stint of vegetarianism currently out of interest; I do not drink or smoke. The only 'ice' in my life is ice hockey. However, I am of course open to you eating, smoking, and doing your thang. (Please don't be doing ice, though). I don't have pets or kids. I always pay rent on time, and can sort out a bond and references no problem. As I said, quick visit to Melbourne, looking for a nice place to stay. I don't wreck things :) If you've got a furnished room available soon and think we'd get on, shoot me a message, I'm looking forward to hearing from you. Thanks!

Seasoned flatsharer that makes epic brownies and lemon drizzle cake, exceptionally clean and sadly, actually enjoys cleaning - tidy house, tidy mind and all that jazz. I like songs with words, dogs over cats, lifting heavy things in the gym, travelling, mindlessly scrolling, bingeing on TV/Netflix as required and generally being chilled and happy. Looking to make new friends as I move to Melbourne to share dinners, maybe a few cocktails, a home and some baked treats! I'm not available to move in until 2nd week of August but will be in Melbourne for a few weeks before so we can meet up to check our music and cake tastes don't clash too heavily! I am one of those "working holiday" types so that's why at the moment, I'd love to commit to more than 3 months but that's the window and budget I've given myself to find a job! Hopefully I'll be able to stay for longer.

Gary and Kelly are on their 6th month of their working holiday visas. They lived and worked in Melbourne since January, and they've been traveling the East coast since the end of June. They are heading back to Melbourne after deciding they no longer want to stay in Cairns. Melbourne felt too much like home :) Gary is from Ireland and Kelly is from the USA. They met 3 years ago in NY and the rest is history! They like quiet nights in and weekend road trips to explore. They are both going to have work as soon as they get back to Melbourne--and both are extremely hard workers. They appreciate clean housemates who do their part to keep the place tidy and peaceful.
