Hey everyone! My name is Peter, I am currently in the process of moving from Toronto, Canada to Australia on a Working Holiday Visa. Although I will be on a temp. visa, I am looking to permanently relocate and hope to work towards that upon my arrival. A bit about me, I am a young professional working in commercial banking. Have been doing it for a few years and have recently contemplated a career change with this move. Possibly open up my own business! On my spare time, I play basketball, go to the gym, a big coffee fan, love to explore the city, and a strong believer looking to get plugged into a church community. I'm looking for stability and wont be the typical traveller on this visa. I am a home owner here in Canada, so I am tidy and clean up after myself. I have rented rooms to some mates here and so I really understand the process! I am quite social and love to meet new people, but also balanced and can give sufficient space too. I'm very transparent and hope to find some mates who have the same values/interests. I am quite flexible with the duration of my stay. I prefer to find a place that is furnished and tidy. Close to public transportation and grocery stores are always a bonus! Looking for a place that is $200/pw inclusive of utilities and internet. If you have something that may be of interest please send me a message! Look forward to meeting you!
Myself and my friend are coming to Melbourne on Jan 14. We both have completed engineering. We both are looking rooms at an affordable amount. We both are jovial and adaptable to any situation.
We are a quiet, respectful English couple who have a passion for adventure, outdoors, travel, sports and great at cooking. We are clean, tidy and easy to get along with. We are social and love sharing our stories but also enjoy our own time. We look forward to hearing from you!

Hi, I work full time in Moorabbin, generally leaving home at 8am getting home after 7pm. I am generally pretty busy catching up with friends and exercising. On the weekends I usually head out with friends, but stay in every now and then. Always up for a chat, but enjoy my personal space. I am a tidy and reliable person. Non smoker, no pets. If you have any other questions feel free to ask me. Ree
PLEASE READ WHOLE DESCRIPTION BEFORE MESSAGING I've been renting for about a year now, and my time at my current home is coming to a close. Looking for a new home in the east/south east. I am a casual stocktaker with a reliable income, and I work at various times on different days. I don't drive or own a car so I would prefer to be close to public transport. I clean up after myself, am careful in my usage of home utilities and respect others' privacy and personal space, so I hope to expect the same from those I share with. I'm pretty quiet but happy to socialise, and I'm open to house events and the like. In my free time, I tend to keep to myself as I'm a bit of an introvert. I like to play games, read, watch movies and learn things to cook. I don't often drink or go out, but I don't care if anyone else does. I'm also non-vegan (don't mind if you are), non-smoker and am happy with LGBT+. I'd prefer to live with other non-smokers, and people who aren't fussed about my sexuality. My boyfriend sometimes comes over for a visit, or to stay the night, and other nights I stay at his place (we work together so it depends). He is 21, quiet and respectful. We mostly keep to ourselves, playing games and watching stuff on my computer. If there is anything you need to know, please feel free to message me. :)
Hi I'm Rob, a friendly and clean New Zealander, i've been living in Melbourne almost 5 years now. I'm 28 and currently working in the sports and events industries, with a busy summer lined up. Also i'm going to be studying a few more courses part time next year just to keep myself busy. I like to eat fairly healthy and try to get out riding a few times a week. I've lived out of home for 6 years now, so i know how to be considerate of others and all the house basics like paying my bills on time and cleaning up after myself without being told. Love animal's so that would be a bonus if you had any :) Prefer non smokers
Hi guys, a bit about us: Jing - Mid 20's, working full time in Funds Management, enjoys cooking good food and eating good food (of course, that's the whole point of cooking right); also trying to get in free cardio by cycling to and from work. Kelly - Mid 20's, full time Masters student, also works part time as a freelance writer. She is a really good Chef (Trust me I have pretty high standards when it comes to food), and enjoys dragging Jing around doing various things outdoors. About the place: Looking for a place in the east or south east and within 15kms of Melbourne CBD. Would like a master bedroom with own Ensuite and walk in robe. Most important thing for us is Cleanliness, applies double for the Kitchen. Common sense and respect are also very nice qualifies to have in house mates; we are always happy to make new friends as long as everyone also tries to consider others as well as themselves.
Easy going mature minded individual that is considerate of others space and things. Enjoys cooking and the team effort of keeping the place tidy. The home I see as a place to recharge for the day ahead, some social interaction and time out. Tend to be more social out with friends than at home. Preference for unit style accommodation with some yard & Lug. Thanks, Sam
Hello, My name is Clinton and I am a male Culinary student from Hong Kong. I am a outgoing, polite and friendly person, always happy to make new friends. I would like to rent a room before my arriving to Melbourne on 5th January, 2017. I will be studying at Holmesglen Institute - Moorabbin, so i prefer some place near the campus, much better if the place is near train station. Since I am a culinary student, therefore i would love to stay in a place with a good kitchen, i am more than happy to make meals to the housemates as well!! Sorry for my poor English and thank you everyone for reading this post
My name is Josh, I'm 24. I'm very friendly and easy to talk to. I'm all about going out for a drink, have some food and a laugh. Most of the time i will be either at work, gym or chilling out somewhere reading a good book. More than happy for a guy or girl room mate/s. Non smoker, respectful and im also hillarious which is a bonus :) Looking to move somewhere around the end of January as i work in East Bentleigh and i live quite a fair way away from that at the moment :)
I work 30 hours a week in a pharmacy. I have a passion for makeup. I'm often found out on weekends and catching up with friends when I'm not working. I consider myself a fairly outgoing person. I would love to live with someone who is easy to get along with and have a laugh. I also appreciate alone time.
Hi all, I'm Mitchell, a 26 year old Physiotherapist and have been living in Melbourne since March (originally from Sydney). I think we can all agree that Melbourne is the better city of the two! I work in Mornington Peninsula and live within the area, but am looking for something in the lower half of Bayside. I'll be working full time throughout the weekdays. I'm fairly active - most weeknights I'll be training in martial arts (judo) or strength & conditioning. I enjoy travelling and outdoor activities. In my free time, I like to catch up with friends over food and drinks (massive foodie) and exploring more of Melbourne's goodness. Otherwise, I enjoy just being at home too. I don't party. I'm social, easy-going and respectful. I've stayed in 2 sharehouses, so I know how to be considerate of the house and everyone in it. I enjoy cooking, and am happy to share meals and conversation too. I'm an ambivert, or a well balanced introvert; I enjoy the company of others, but I also crave quiet time to myself at times. I hope to find a housemate/housemates who are like-minded.
Hi my names Kelly, I am looking for people over 30's to move in with. I am easy going 29 year old female, I love to have a laugh and do not take life to seriously. I work in disability full time and love my job. I am tidy and "try" and live a healthy lifestyle, well I am trying!! Haha. If you feel like I could be a good house mate give me a msg. I am just ready to meet some nice people and live in an good environment, has to have my own bathroom to.
Hi there , I'm Sian and I'm 23 years old. I'm laid back , respectful and a tidy person to live with. I enjoy my own space but don't mind a good chat from time to time. Most weekends I'm out and about. Feel free to send me a message if your interested :)
Hi guys, I'm Phil, obviously looking for a place to live/share. I'm living in a share house in aspendale at the moment but am looking to move a little closer to the city to get closer to work (if possible). I'm really easy going, play a lot of sport, environmental scientist "by trade" and am currently working as a project supervisor in the contaminated land industry. During the week (after work hours) I'm usually at footy training or trying to stay fit in one way or another, which means half the time im home late and straight into bed. i'm a non-smoker and don't drink during the week generally, but enjoy a social drink on the weekends. Looking at medium to longterm place to stay, but pretty flexible either way. i'm a very friendly, respectful and tidy person (can't live without a dishwasher though!). I've travelled a lot so I've learned to get along with people from all walks of life, I think travelling gives you a better perspective on life and people in general anyway. Next trip is Japan in Jan if you're keen? ;) Potentially could have joint custody of a cat (ie. 1 month on 1 month off - its a long story), but if you don't like or can't have pets I wouldn't bring him - he's equally happy being where he is atm full time too.
We are a professional and quiet couple looking for a quiet place to live in. Even though we are friendly and sociable, we will spend the most part of our time working, and that's why we are looking for a place where we can rest and chill during our free time.
Hey, Im Amanda. 30 and a full time student at Deakin studying Psych. I'm either looking for someone to move in and share my unit or looking to team up with someone. I have everything a house needs so can contribute furniture, washer and fridge. I have a Staffy called Nala who is desexed and lovable so a dog lover (or at least dog liker) is a must. Im pretty easy going, I enjoy a glass of wine and a good chat. I love cooking and so will often offer dinner and would be a bonus to be able to find someone who reciprocated it occasionally :) I like going out for dinner, walks with Nala, weekends away and spending time with friends. I would like to find someone who is looking for somewhere to live for at least a year and happy to socialise and have a chat and also have own time. :) Feel free to ask any questions and also check out my room for rent add. Thanks, Amanda
Hey! I've just moved back to Melbourne after a three month trip back home to Cairns and am looking for a new place to call home. I am fun, easy-going and loving having a laugh and sharing good times with my housemates but am also respectful of peoples space and privacy. i sometimes like to go out for a drink on weekends but also enjoy weekend adventures or even a nice bottle of wine in front of a movie. I am currently working in hospitality but am in the process of looking for a full-time 9-5 job. If you think i'm a suitable flatmate for your home please message me and we can organise to meet. :)
Hello there! I am currently studying in high school as a student :) I am a very friendly and upbeat person!!

I can keep to myself when needed and know my boundaries, but I still know how to have a good time :)
Hi I'm Griffin, i'm a first year apprentice and from the local area. In my spare time I enjoy watching films, going to the gym, experimental cooking and hanging out with friends. I'm looking for a nice room for me and my cat Odin in the local area.
I'm a Monash University student and I work part-time as a tutor (both at a tutoring center for stable income and as a private tutor for extra cash). I am quiet but still sociable and easy to get along with. Most of the time, I will be out for uni or at work. I am a very neat and tidy person.
Hello all, My girlfriend and I are returning home from holidays overseas in a couple of weeks, and need a share room to rent as of the 8th of December. We are looking to rent for 2-4 months. We are both quiet, respectful and happy people who have lived in shared accom many times before. I work in car sales, and Loreen is a waitress. So we'll be working most of the time. Please don't hesitate to drop me an email :) Cheers, Zac and Loreen
I love to socialise with my housemates in my spare time and also respect the needs of the house and other housemates. I love to listen to music, watch a movie, go out to dinner, walk along the beach or play a board game in my spare time! Work full time as a manager at a local pub, free drinks anyone? 😊
I am currently living with a couple of mates in Glen Iris but the lease runs out mid Jan! I work pretty long hours but always enjoy a drink or a night out. Very easy to live with, clean and tidy and love cooking when i have time. Not too sure how this thing works but lets see what happens! If needed i have fridges, washing machine and a full kitchen full of cooking/eating gear.
Hi, I'm Kate, a 29yr old student studying early childhood and primary teaching at Monash. I currently work in sports retail, which helps to pay the bills. I am clean, tidy, honest and relaxed.
I am a neat and tidy person who respects others need for space but I am always up for a chat over a bottle of wine with some homemade bruschetta or pate and I make a mean spag bol, if I say so myself. I am a bit of a geek so will always have access to the latest shows and movies. As such I can contribute a 65" Sony 4K UHD TV, Sonos soundbar & subwoofer, Sonos Play 5, Roku 3, Apple TV v3, PS4, XBOX One and a WD Media Server. I don't watch much free to air TV as I love watching shows like Game of Thrones, Walking Dead, Fear the Walking Dead, Suits, Breaking Bad and Outlander. I have travelled to a lot of European countries and can share some travel tips if you are considering travelling to Europe. I enjoy art and photography and I have rediscovered my love for exercise so if you need a walking companion I am always up for a walk or a bike ride although I am not much of a gym goer. I have an eclectic taste in music from good old 60's (think Tour of Duty) to Karen Souza, who I hear you ask well go check her out. Other Music/Artists I love include Rock Alternate Birdy Florence + The Machine London Grammar John Newman Tom Odell Damian Rice Stereophonics Rival Sons Paul Weller The Cure I am currently between contracts, I work as either a Business Analyst, System Analyst or Test Analyst depending on the role within the financial services sector, however, finances aren't a problem with regards to rent and utilities etc for the next 6 to 12 months so no need to worry about that. I would like to pick up my next contract prior to Christmas as I am sick of seeing my bank account reducing rather than increasing. Other things I can contribute to the house are a Nespresso machine, air fryer, 3 seater plus 2 armchairs and coffee table outdoor setting as pictured here http://www.superamart.com.au/outdoor/ranges/vivian/vivian-51181/
Hi I'm Bella (intl - S.A) and I'm looking for a place to stay with my partner, Jim. We work part-time and study full time. Saying that, we don't really have a lot of free time, but when we do, we just like to take it easy, such as watching a movie or just chilling with friends/house mates. We're looking for some where unfurnished, as we already have bedroom furniture. Not really party crazy kind of person, but we're more than happy to have dinner or chill out with a board game or two with you or binge watch a series to two. We're clean, responsible, and easy going :)
I currently live in a share house in Cheltenham and would like to find somewhere else in this area as all my family and friends live around here. I'm easy going, very clean and like to have fun. I work full time and am about to start studying part-time after work as well so I like chilling out when I come home. I keep myself pretty busy on the weekends usually head out on a Friday or Saturday night and love going to the footy when I can. Would ideally like to share with someone similar age to me who is relaxed and easy going and up for a chat every now and again. Thanks!
Hi everyone! My partner and I are currently looking to move into a share house as unfortunately the place we are living in now is being sold by the owners. We are both really down to earth, easy to get along with people :) We do have a little kitten named taco but he's the sweetest kitty ever and basically lives in our room! So hopefully we can find some awesome new roommates! :)

Hi, I am a vet nurse and her pooch looking for a place to call home. Like my dog I'm a bit of a forever puppy, that being said I work hard and that includes longish hours 4 days a week. I'm 27 and live a pretty clean lifestyle apart from the cheeky cigarette at the end of the day. I'm not apposed to hanging out/a movie marathon with a glass of wine/beer or whatever, but also more than happy to entertain myself if you are more on the private side. My dog 4yo dog absolutely adores people, he is a big boy so that may not be everybody's cup of tea but he will do his utmost to make you fall in love with him (It's not hard), don't worry though he knows he's not a lap dog! I am very open minded and accepting and looking to share a home with like minded people. I'm looking at a 4 month minimum stay, but could definitely do a long term stay depending on how suitable the situation is. I am looking for a place to call home.
Hi I'm Luke Todd, I have been working full time in Melbourne for the past 12 months after finishing studying the year before. I have just recently accepted a new role at a different company that will have me working in the south eastern suburbs. I work as a construction manager for a residential builder. Now I have decided to look for a room to rent, either long term or short term as I need to find a place as soon as possible. As I am currently renting in the northern suburbs as thats where I was working. I am a very independent person, who is also very clean and easy to get along with, I am also a very social person and enjoy to spend my weekends out and about catching up with friends. I enjoy my sport and fitness, so if I'm not busy working ill be either out running or going to the gym. Hopefully I'm an applicant your looking for and your able to offer me a room to rent.
My name is Amy and my dog’s name is Gizmo. We are looking for a friendly, tranquil, animal loving share-house to settle into. I am 37 and currently work full time during the day (Monday – Friday). I am returning to study next year (Teaching Masters at Monash) and will be working part-time - receiving Austudy/Rent assistance from Centrelink. I enjoy Yoga, walking with Gizmo, reading, cooking, watching movies/t.v shows and catching up with family and friends. I’m looking for a furnished house with an unfurnished queen size bedroom. If possible I'd like my own bathroom, but would be ok to share with one other person. Non-smoking house please, this also includes outside. Gizmo is a Cavalier X Tibetan Spaniel (small/medium dog) who is predominantly indoors, but has access to an enclosed yard via a doggy door at the moment. He is fed in my room and sleeps with me at night. He is toilet trained, has a loving and social nature and doesn't bark much. I also take very good care of his hygiene so our house would never smell of dog. I'm a creative soul who loves music and theatre and will often randomly sing and dance around the house. I have an electric keyboard that I like to play occasionally as well. I’m happy to spend time socialising with my housemates, but also appreciate my alone time - it’s all about balance. Please feel free to contact me if you have a place you'd like me to consider, thanks :)
Originally from Perth, I'm currently studying teaching at Monash. I'm a quiet, low-key person at home, and when I'm not studying, I'm either baking or watching the footy. I've been living in a 4-person share house this year and definitely appreciate the need to be quiet, clean and tidy!
Hello, I'm Charmaine! I'm a PhD student at Monash University, so I work weird hours. I also work part time as a TA and RA. I'm hoping to live with someone I can be friends with, but will also respect my privacy. I love playing board games, discussing theories about my favourite books and TV shows and cake. I also love cooking and feeding people!
Hello there, I am a full time work-aholic as a Project Manager in Construction. Currently working in insurance construction for the past two years! Been in Melbourne last two years (originally from Sydney/Canberra) living mainly near the SE Suburbs (Malvern East & Chadstone). Looking relocate somewhere in the near vicinity of work in Oakleigh South. Fairly quiet during the week and generally head out on the weekends to catch a gig/show or venture around! Love weekend trips away visiting the family! I'm easy going, big heart, honest, clean and great with bills! I love music and the arts, that is my passion! I'm 34 years young, play guitar and program songs. I also enjoy sculpting, painting and I adore all animals. Hoping to find a place with happy fun vibes with those of a similar lifestyle preference!
Hi! I just moved to Melbourne for a new job! I'm super clean, friendly and love to chill out with some netflix, good food or keen to explore some cool pockets of the city! See ya soon!
Hi all, About myself: I am a professional engineer with Northern-European background, recently moved here to enjoy better climate and way of life. I am cool with most of people and believe diversity will enrich us. I have a more doer attitude than a thinker or chiller. My hobbies include motorcycles (racing, cruising, touring), cars, bicycling, poker, disc golf, electronics, music. My ideal share-house I would join or create: I would prefer a European/western style share house (not a racist, we'll just get along better with similar cultural background). With 4-5 comfy individual rooms (to have more company, some possibly for couples), with an possible extra room for friends/Couchsurfers to temporarily stay in. All for the diversity. Can be male and female mixed. All working professionals (no need to argue about expenditures in range of 10$). Should be a home to live and thrive, rather than cheap accommodation. A big friendly family to share evenings and weekends by choice rather requirement, as of living together. Of course if one needs private time, this should be ok too. Friends coming over in the weekend should be a norm, rather a unwanted exception. Going out together to explore the city and events. Preferably with a paid cleaning for common areas/gardening service (unless somebody is too keen to do gardening by themselves. I guess cleaning in not a hobby :) ). Location: I would prefer living in a reasonable distance from my workplace (Mulgrave, up to 10km radius). The house should have a easy and fast access to the city for both car and public transport, should be located in or near the center of a well established suburb (restaurants, bars, cafes, etc.). House: Preferably new built or freshly renovated. Modern style. Adequate heating and cooling in all areas. Living area: Big living area with comfy sofas and large TV/projector. Console(s), if you are interested. Movie server/Netflix box. Fast Internet and WiFi. Kitchen: Big open kitchen with all the required utensils and appliances(micro, oven, cooktop, grill, etc.). Should be simultaneously comfortably use-able by at least two persons. Shared meals, why not. Backyard: Some greenery, BBQ, large covered sitting/lounge area. Possibly hot tub or a pool. Garage: Double-car garage with all the tools for simple maintenance for cars and bikes ( I am a DIY-er). Although, the actual vehicles should stay outside (except bikes and bicycles). Possibly create a common area there with a pool table, sofas and a fridge for drinks. My current situation: I do not own much property except a motorbike, a bicycle and some tools, but I would be willing to invest to create this kind of atmosphere. Of course, first solution would be to get all the required inventory from Gumtree for a cheap price and upgrade whenever necessary. It might be possible for me to get some of the stuff from a friend (couches, beds, mattresses, pool table, kitchen equipment). If any of this rings a bell for you, give me a message or a text, let's get together over a beer and discuss the possible future. Cheers, Rait

Hi, My name is Andrew and I am looking for a place to live for 6+ months. I am currently between jobs following an injury which I am currently recovering from. I am hoping to obtain employment as a coach driver over the next few months. I have lived in lots of share houses before, am tidy, polite, fairly quiet, and considerate. I enjoy having a chat with my housemates, but also respect everyone's privacy, and enjoy doing my own thing. I enjoy getting out and about during the day, going for walks and cooking (I used to be a chef). Hope to hear from you soon.
