Giacomo

Looking in: Brunswick, Abbotsford, Carlton North, Collingwood, North Melbourne

I'm doing a PhD in physics at the University of Melbourne. Australia is a very generous country so they decided to give me a salary/scholarship, which means that I can always pay my rent and bills in time, without having to rob any Woolies. In my spare time I like to do sports (running, swimming, yoga, soccer etc), annoy people around me playing my guitar, read books and travel as much as I can even if that just means going for on an adventure to the nearby pub. This is my 5th year living abroad in shared houses, before coming to Melbourne I lived in Ireland and Canada, so I am an international expert in the art of sharing a house. I value a lot the relationship with my housemates, so I'm looking for a bunch of people I can feel comfortable with, inside and outside the house, sharing dinners, drinks, lazy afternoons and any random moment life brings about. Luckily I also know how to respect others' privacy so I promise I won't follow you inside the bathroom. Living in a clean house is fundamental for me, so I hereby solemnly commit to put my efforts in keeping the place tidy and neat, and cleaning regularly.

Janine

Looking in: Preston, Alphington, Caulfield, Niddrie, Williamstown, Ivanhoe, Malvern, Yarraville

Since I work full-time, have projects and like being out, I'm not in the house too much. Got my cat, Mackerel, who's a brilliant soul and is pretty warm and respectful. Though, I am polyamorous, so future flatmates definitely need to be kind of open-minded and open to discussing things their uncomfortable or happy with. Pretty chill and low key and when I'm home, it's usually for down time, so I'm pretty respectful of space. Just looking for a kind of short term place for a few months -- unless the situation turns out to be great!

Looking in: Abbotsford, Fitzroy, Brunswick East, Brunswick, Collingwood

Hi I'm Kellie, I'm newly single and looking for a place to call home. I'm really easy going, personable and always up for a wine or a cup of tea if it's going. I'm clean, tidy and respectful of personal space. I work in Finance for a Fashion house in Carlton so would like to find somewhere preferably North side. I like to keep it pretty quiet and routine during the week but on weekends I'm usually out and about or at home chilling. I like music, sport, dancing, wine, fashion, cooking and lots of laughs. Cheers Kellie

Aisha, Quentin & Ana

Looking in: Carlton, Fitzroy, South Yarra, Brunswick

Hi! We're Aisha, Ana and Quentin, three friends that met in Australia while travelling. We shared the same room for weeks, so we're definitely sure we can be flatmates as well! We're looking for 2 rooms in a nice apartment/house in Melbourne. Ana (Colombian/Canadian) is a nurse, Quentin (French) works in hospitality and Aisha (Dutch) is a content writer and nanny. We all love cooking, Ana and Quentin are especially good in cooking delicious vegetarian meals. Besides that we're all wine/beer lovers and love to go out for a drink. We are creative, friendly and flexible people with an open mind and we'd love to find a home with similar people!

Bridget

Looking in: Preston, Clifton Hill, Richmond, Doncaster, Alphington, Kew, Hawthorn, Ivanhoe, Heidelberg

Hi, I'm Bridget! 27 year old full-time Nurse! Bubbly and social, always busy working or at the gym so rarely home. When I'm home, I am quiet and mainly keep to myself. Having said that, I'm always up for a chat or glass of wine occasionally! Non-smoker and lead a fairly active and healthy lifestyle. My two deal breakers are: 1) I'd like my own bathroom/ensuite. I'm happy to pay more and share everything else! 2) Need a some form of carpark! Not phased if it's on/off street or a permit.

Claudia

Looking in: Fitzroy North, Preston, Melbourne, Coburg, Thornbury, Brunswick East, Brunswick

Hiya, I'm moving to Melbourne from Perth to come study Interior Design at RMIT Uni. ideally, looking for my own small unit ...partly furnished with white goods would be even better! Will also consider house shares but no room shares. Up to $200pw is what id be looking at spending (ahh the life of a student) I'm 34 years old, so my partying days are quite behind me. Much prefer quiet nights in reading, listening to music- huuuuge music lover...though don't ask me what i listen to because i have a huge range of tastes ranging from ska, rocksteady, Old R&B, rockabilly, to old funky hip hop and old school metal... coming from a family with musicians i was always taught to keep my music tastes open! Love watching documentaries- mainly true crime, paranormal, Nat Geo, and environmental. Drinking tea, health & wellbeing, aromatherapy, cooking, drawing and potting plants makes me happy...but then so does the occasional social drink and going out to a good gig and dinner with friends from time to time. I would consider myself respectful to others ,easy to get along with and very clean and tidy. Though i'am quite a private person, i get along with all walks of life. Also will be looking for a casual job 2 days or 3 nights a week.. Please feel free to get in touch if you'd like to know more.

Hey Guys, I’m moving back to Melbourne after a stint in London and I need somewhere to live! I’m great to live with because I'm a super tidy (I’ve been known to do laundry and mop the floors when drunk) and I’m also an expert at ordering in (in the past 3 months I’ve cooked 5 times), although don’t let that deceive you because I’m still an alright cook. Another great thing is that I’m a ‘social media expert’ well that’s what my colleagues in London called me so I’m always there to help you draft the perfect insta caption. I have my twin brother’s Netflix and Stan accounts (free to use) which honestly is a pretty good deal. I’m pretty easy with where I live as long as it’s central to the city. My goal is to live near/on a tram line because prior to London I was confined to Williamstown… So hit me up if you want some sass in your life because I’ll bring it in bucketloads.

Hello! After living with a group of great friends in Rosanna for a few years, it's time for a change (aka they're moving back in with the 'rents so they can save for a house deposit #millenialcurse). The silver lining here is that I'm taking this opportunity to move closer to work! I work at Melbourne Uni full-time, and will also be studying there part-time next semester. I have a Masters degree in Literature, so will come with a solid (if not eclectic) collection of books and can provide hours of conversation if books/film/tv is your thing. I love gin, makeup, eating food that I don't have to cook, and buying different editions of books I already own because the cover art is pretty. I love my current living situation, so would be keen on replicating that as closely as possible. That means becoming fast friends with my potential housemates (that's you!) and being able to come home to a group of people that I adore. We share food staples (milk, eggs, flour, sugar, etc, etc) and cleaning products, but everything else we keep separate. I think this system works a treat, so ideally my new housemates would agree. I'm looking for 3-4 housemates around my age, who work full-time, and who are as friendly as I am but who also understand the need for quiet/Netflix time every now and again. I love to socialise and hang with friends, but rarely bring the party back to my place, so your sleep is almost guaranteed to be uninterrupted. Having said that my goodness I flipping love house parties so would be totally fine if you wanted to host one on the odd occasion. I've also gotten used to the glorious invention that is a dishwasher, so would be keen on a relatively new place that has schmick, modern ammenities. I'm all for gender balance too! Having grown up in a house full of women, living with men is a genuine novelty for me. If the stars align, our new household will have 2 lovely ladies and two gentlemen occupying it. I'm a cis woman, but I'm also LGBTQI+ friendly (I hope I got the acronym right). I'm not opposed to sharing with a couple, as long as I have another single buddy to keep the balance. For fun I take pole dancing lessons, go to the movies, spend time with friends, and have performed in the odd amateur musical from time to time. You can expect sweet shower-renditions of showtunes if I'm feeling brave. I don't have very much house stuff beyond the furniture in my current bedroom, and I'm keen to avoid having to buy anything, so ideally one or more of my future housies will be able to provide luxury items like a washing machine and a fridge. My current lease is up in early November, so I'd be keen on having a place locked in by mid-late October. Anywhere in/close to Parkville would be amazing - I'm determined to find somewhere walking-distance to work so I can ditch my monthly Myki fee! If any of this sounds appealing to you, get in touch! I'm so excited to welcome a new bunch of awesome people into my life and hope you feel likewise after reading this very long explanation of who I am. Speak soon!

Looking in: Brunswick, Coburg, Thornbury, Preston

Hello - I'm Catriona, 27 yo, Female, working full-time near the airport (never know what to write in these things!)... I like to think myself as a social go getter. Yet at the same time, I am also happy to do my own thing. I work full time, which means I usually like to kick back during the week. However, I am also partial to impromptu BBQ's and a cheeky wine every now and then. I also have great fun trying to convince myself that I'm a health enthusiast; enjoy running... My current housemate is sadly looking to move a little too far for my work commute. So sadly, this means that we will need to part ways. Keen to find somewhere close to the Thornbury area (I just love it). Would be happy to do a team up, or come and check out a space. I come with a few house hold items, though not much. A hammock, and a BBQ - because, really, what else do you need? Look forward to hearing from you.

Hey there, we're a couple looking to move close to CBD as one of us is currently studying at UniMelb and I plan to enroll there for the next academic year. Our focus is on a budget place in a safe area, close to public transport, since we're working part-time and studying. Ideally a place with own/ensuite kitchen & bathroom, since sharing and time-management with others may not be possible for us as students. Furnished or semi-furnished is fine. We're both pretty low-maintenance, outgoing and love exploring new places, but otherwise happy to stay home and study/read. Neither of us drinks or smokes.

34 years old and work as a freelance photographer and an arts therapist. At the moment, I work from home about 3 days a week (editing and planning) and 2-3 days out on location. I'm into sharing meals, wine, heart to heart chats and all that good stuff to get to know the people I'm living with. I value people and open communication. I would like to live in a multi cultural home or with open minded people that are open to cultural differences, after all diversity is the spice of life. I'm interested in permaculture, but yet to gain the skills, willing to put the hours into the garden to get my thumbs green. I'm quirky and creative. I enjoy gatherings and being social and every now and again I'll go off on a silent retreat when I need a little zen time and clarity. I love all kinds of music from around the world. Other loves... nature, dancing (african and latin), yoga (I gotta get back on that bike ;) ), travel, movies, documentaries, food, talks that scratch the surface, acting like a kitty cat and putting on random accents. If I sound like your hommie to be, feel free to contact me :) Also, I'm looking to move by late August, but if I find a suitable place, I can move sooner. I live in the South side but much prefer the creative and diverse flow of the North folk. Marlène (aka Marz)
