Ananda

Looking in: Richmond, Hawthorn East, Hawthorn, Balwyn

Hey future friends, I'm an Architect and working full time in Hawthorn. I have a good sense of humour (i think) and enjoy meeting people. I do a lot of paintings in my spare time and read about consciousness and technology. I drink whiskey only and just on Fridays... maybe Saturday too. I also spend a lot of my time going to conferences and expanding my networks which includes builders, researchers and philosophers. I speak fluent English. If you're keen for a quick chat and most importantly, initiate some sort of friendship - feel free to write me back or call me. Coolest regards, Ananda

Hi all, A bit about me: I’m a 28-year-old Illustrator / jack-of-all-trades born in Melbourne who has just moved back to the city after a year away in the countryside. My work and education history vary across industries, with my last position as a barista and café all-rounder near Geelong. I’m currently seeking gainful employment while working on commissioned illustrations. My Illustration business is starting to take shape which is something that I take great pride in, and I’m excited for what the future holds. I've always been curious and creative and have had guitars, drumsticks and all manner of pencils, pens and paintbrushes by my side since a very young age. With a view to go back to study next year - my past study areas have included Banking & Finance, Business Management and Systems Administration in Information Technology, among others. Learning and improving myself are a large part of my life. I’m not new to living with other people and know how to clean up after myself, be respectful of other’s space and energy, and how to maintain a comfortable and grounded atmosphere. I love people, but better yet, I love getting along with people. Finding the common ground is something I strive to achieve. A mature, kind and down-to-earth person, who enjoys sharing a space with like-minded individuals. I’m able to move in as soon as possible, and to provide the first month’s rent as well as the bond via direct-debit. If I sound to be a good fit, I look forward to hearing from you. Regards, Tyler

Hi guys, my name is Harry, I work as a pool lifeguard and also am a fulltime student, studying engineering :) I'm a super friendly and easy going person that is always up for a chat and the occasional beverage.

I'm moving around here due to part time work that I have picked up.

I'm into design, F1, movies, games and need to get back to the gym at some point. Yuma likes making stuff, cafes, movies and also wants to get down the gym.

Looking in: Preston, Fitzroy North, Fitzroy, Bulleen, Thornbury, Northcote, Kew, Ivanhoe East, Ivanhoe, Heidelberg Heights, Heidelberg, Hawthorn, Eaglemont, Balwyn North, Balwyn

Hello my name is Abi, originally from Wagga NSW, have been in Melbourne a few years now. Studying a Bachelor of Arts (Photography/Film) at Deakin University & working around 30 hours a week at a coffee shop. I keep nice and busy but like coming home to a happy homely environment. Positive energy & honesty are very important to me. I'd say I keep to myself most of the time but am also a lover of a good movie night, a cuppa coffee or a glass of wine and a potential boogie of a weekend. I'm currently living in a share house with some of my closest friends but we've decided to go our own ways from October. I know October is still a little way a way but I'd like to know I have somewhere secured soon. Would love to grab a drink or a cuppa if you'd have a potential spot for me.

Looking in: Wheelers Hill, Vermont South, Vermont, Springvale, Nunawading, Mulgrave, Mount Waverley, Glen Waverley, Camberwell, Box Hill, Blackburn, Balwyn

Hi! I'm Beth. I'm 20 years old and currently studying my Master of Teaching for Secondary School. I'm an American, but live here permanently in Australia. I've been told my accent makes me sound like I've just come off the plane! I'm a massive book nerd and Netflix fiend. I enjoy my space, but don't mind a cheeky drink once in a while. I'm very low key and like my space to reflect chill vibes. Therefore, I'm not interested in a party house. I'm not an obsessive clean freak. But I am tidy and respectful of the communal areas. I am VERY allergic to cats, therefore I cannot live in a house with cats, regardless of if I keep my door closed. I am looking at adding a member of the dog variety to my family, and someone who would be open to loving a doggo would be a massive bonus.

Hi, Im 33 years old and recently started a new full time job in Balwyn so I am looking for somewhere closer to work to live for a minimum of 6-12 months.

Im a pretty chilled flatmate to live with, I have a cat who is a both an inside and outside cat (desexed, microchipped and vaccinated), so Im obviously looking for somewhere that he is welcome too.

I am a grandfather who spends a fair amount of time with my children and grandchildren. Not keen on a party house, or pets, particularly cats as I am allergic to them.

A couple looking to teamup with probably another similar couple. I work in Kew at a Real Estate, so should have no problem in finding a place, but whilst trying to save it can be hard to find an afforable rental property. My partner, Tom works in the construction industry. Recently have moved from Ballarat & are trying to settle in the area. I do also have a pet cat, she is 10 years old & is gorgeous. She is very well trained & has lived in many houses with me & never been a problem. Tom & I are a friendly & happy couple. We work 5-6 days per week, & like to have a quiet drink, cook & keep a tidy house. Looking around the Kew location, but open to places like Brunswick, Fitzroy & anything around Melbourne really!! Can travel up to 20km to work if I have to. Were so lovely & easy so please get in contact with me if you'd like to know more. :) Length of stay is flexible. Ideally 6 months plus!

Very chilled, easy going housemate, partnered with Atticus, my 3 yr old Maremma pup. Grew up in Melbourne, went to school in Kew and work in hospitality. I genuinely love people and a social, healthy lifestyle. Travelling and seeing the world is my biggest hobby, recently arriving back from India and Thailand. Hence the urgency for finding new place to live. At home, I'm very respectful of the house, cleaning and helping out with dinner is my forte! When cooking for myself, always make sure that I make extra for the house in case anyone else is up for a feed. In saying that, I love sharing a meal and going down to the local for a beer/wine. At my last humble abode, I had an amazing 3 yrs with my housemates. Always having a laugh and helping each other out. My pup, Atticus., 3yrs old, he is extremely well house trained, well mannered, outside and inside dog. Never acting up and mostly looking for cuds, loved by all he comes across. As for his breed, the Maremma, also non-allergenic, they are used protect penguins on the coast (If you've seen the movie Oddball). Of course I take him for 1-2 walks a day and you'd be more than welcome to join or take him for walks yourself! He's even great company to take down to the local cafe or pub with your friend's. As for having people back at the house, I generally make most of my social activities out of home. As most of my friend's are mature, in their late 20's to mid 30's. My hobbies include, guitar, jumping on the Ps4 from time to time, watching Netflix, walking Atticus, cooking and catching up with friends/family. I'd be able to bring a lot to the home, as I'm currently keeping most of my belongings in storage, which include - Fridge, washing machine, couches, kitchenware, outdoor setting, BBQ, flat screen T.V & home theatre system, bookshelves, decorative pieces, art and more. Of course any of this would have to be agreed upon, otherwise I'm very happy to leave it where it is. If I meet your criteria for a new housemate, I'm happy to come and check out the house at your convenience! As I'm on the hunt for a home after travelling. Ready to move asap. Rent and bond is in hand. If you'd like anymore details, feel free to let me know. Thanks for your time, Lachie
