I'm a Southern Californian native born and raised, have the greenest of thumbs, and the literal definition of a jack of all trades. Ain't nothin I can't do! Got my BA in Radio, TV, and Film, owned my own business for a while before moving to Japan for 4 years to teach English. I love-love-LOVE languages. Aspiring to be a true polyglot. I'm currently a bartender and I LOVE it (my one cool trick is pouring rainbow shots, so heeeeey), and I'm on a work and holiday visa for the foreseeable year (get into Melbourne on August 10th). Looking to find someplace to call home, not do the backpacker thing. I'd love to stay long term somewhere, just put in 3 months to give me wiggle room for snatching up a job. I'm no stranger to the city, spent a few weeks there in the summer about 3 years ago. LOVE it. As a Californian, I know all about fire season and droughts, so no worry about being Eco-conscious here! I'm clean, organized, and very self-aware. I highly respect quiet and alone time, but love a few beers and a night out, or sharing a home-cooked meal (I like to bake...I hope you like to eat). My go-go dancing days in Osaka might be behind me but I still know how to have fun, whether in a group dynamic or by myself. If you wanna settle in for a movie night or board games I'm SO there! I've just learned how to make a mean egg foo young, and my butt has a costco card so heeeeeey ya'll live-in bartender with perks here! :D **My one caveat for full-disclosure: I haven't entered the country yet so I'll be coming in without a job (obviously, though I'm working on that on this end) but I'm bringing enough cash with me to give me wiggle room while I look (we're fine and dandy for a while folks!) but I'm hoping to find full-time employment either bartending... or just anywhere to make a wage! :D I -am- concerned about signing longer leases (just planning for the worst) in case it's impossible to find employment and I have to credit-card a plane ticket back home like a failure-face. Though if I hit the pavement running then that shouldn't be a problem! Just wanted to get that out there, I don't feel cool not disclosing that :) Ideally I'd like to spend my entire visa year in one place to call home :) -Need a place with internet -Private, furnished room -Short stay (~2 months) with room to increase stay (I shouldn't sign a longer lease if I can't find employment first, right? :D Hell if you know a place hiring then I'm down to sign a year lease!) I've been around, held all kinds of jobs, have all kinds of hobbies, and love all kinds of people. I'm animal-friendly and super easy-going; also open to more places than those general suburbs I've listed, and willing to pay more on rent if bills and internet are included, just an FYI. :) If you think we'd get along then I'd love to be your housemate! :) Any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to ask! I'm an open book :)
Hi there! I am currently a Psychology student in Deakin Waurn Ponds. I am in my third year and probably will go on to study more! I have previous shared accomodation experience and am respectful to my housemates. I am accepting of anyone and everyone. I am very tidy don't worry haha! The house will be well looked after. I love cooking and might even offer to cook meals here and there if I get a chance! I work 2 jobs, I day job and 1 night job. I like going out with friends, but I also do value my alone time to think and relax at the same time. Sometimes, a good night with Netflix simply takes the cake! I'm easy to get along with and love a good chat. I will be a great asset to your home! It says 6 months on my page, but that is only the minimum. Same with move in date, am flexible with that one. Let me know if you have any other questions :)
Hi I'm Soma, I work part time and am a sports trainer on the weekends. I enjoy all the usual things like hanging out with friends, having a few drinks during the week and exercising. I'm an active, outgoing person who has had sharehouse experience. I am looking to start my own sharehouse northside or move into an existing sharehouse. My values include honesty, respect, mature open dialogue and freedom to be oneself. I'm a fairly chill person and won't invade your space or me time, but I'm also down for being social and having a drink with my housemates.
Hi, my name is Claire, and I am a 24 yo female working in the NGO sector. I am a very social person and love to make my house a home. I respect my housemate's privacy, but also love to come together over wine and cheese on occasions! I am also quite neat and tidy, and take pride in the home i am living in. I enjoy sport ( i play hockey, and love to hike, swim, and partake in anything outdoors!) On the weekends I also love live music, a few glasses of wine with friends, and dining out! Originally from the South Coast of NSW, I have been living in Sydney for the last 7 years, but I am about to make the move to Melbourne, as I have received a job offer in Melbs! My job would be starting 11th September, so I would be hoping to move in early September sometime, but quite flexible!
Hey there. I'm looking for a room to move in now. I'm an international student from Thailand. I study to be a chef at William Angliss in the city. I'm quite clean and tidy. I cook quite often and enjoy sharing my meals. Have a look on my profile more about myself. Please consider and let me know if i can go inspect the place and then we can have more talk.
Looking for a new place to stay starting around mid-august. About me: French Canadian law student from McGill Uni. I’m responsible, organized, and respectful of people’s space. Having been a counsellor for a while, I don’t shy away from real talks and good connections. I also like to go out and dance from time to time. I have already settled into a social life here, so you don't have to take care of me, while I'm obviously interested in the house life! Oh, and I like biking and volleyball. Kind of household: I am quite sociable and I hope to spend some time with my new roommates. However, I kinda like/need my sleep and privacy, so I don’t think a busy or party house would be the best fit. Animals = sure. People around my age = yas. Quick witted spirits = damn right. Gardening extraordinaires = yes please. Hit me up!
Easy going couple who travel a lot so only looking for a short term stay. Matt is from Melbourne and Anja is from South Africa, both working and will help in upkeep in and around the house. We like a clean space and pull our share in that regard. Non smokers. Great peeps.
Hello there people of Melbournia, I am on the lookout for a South Yarra (or as close as) spacious room with some lovely people to share a home with. Move in by early August! I'm the kind of housemate who's guilty pleasure is trashy T.V, will keep the fridge stocked with hummus and can make a mean avocado on toast. I am a young full time professional, working as a Marketing Assistant as well as running my own business; Board Art Melbourne. I'm hoping someone will read this and think "what a coincidence I have a room AND it's in South Yarra (or as close as) I'm going to message Claire because she sounds awesome." MESSAGE ME :D
I will be landing in Melbourne on August 22nd and looking for bar work. I'm easy to get along with and respect the privacy of others. Not looking for anything fancy, as long as it has a roof and a toilet. I will be arriving with only a suitcase & laptop so I will not take up much space.
Hey! I will be moving from Toronto, Canada in September to Melbourne. I am looking for a place to stay! I will be working full-time in the CBD. I am looking for a place which will be within 20 minute walking distance. I like to have pretty chill week but don't mind having a few drinks and going out on weekends. I'm hoping to pay around 230 PW bills included but that is not a strict budget. I have a 6 month contract so hoping to get a place for that long or even longer! Let me know if you gave anything available, looking forward to hearing from you! Kelly

My name is Natalia and I am a Child Psychologist, on a working holiday from Chile, with a friendly and positive disposition. I am currently working as a full time Nanny. I have a passion for keeping myself healthy, doing yoga, dancing, exploring new things, drinking wine, and most importantly keeping great company!
Stef and I are a clean, quiet and respectful couple who have stayed in sharehouses and apartments before. We have just moved here from Newcastle and are both full-time students, who work as well. We enjoy a coffee or five and brunch at cute cafes :)
We are a laid back couple originally from the UK who have been travelling around all of Asia for the past 3/4 months and are hoping to stay in the Melbourne area for 6-9 months to increase our travel funds with our working holiday visa! I was working as a bartender for over a year to start my travel funds. However, I predominantly have a background in Psychology and have recently just got back from working in Sri Lanka for three months running therapy sessions in local psychiatric hospitals, while my boyfriend was a manager of a local bar/pub. We enjoy cooking (we are big foodies!), having a casual drink, scuba diving and travelling (obviously!). We are a clean, friendly and sociable couple but are not party animals by any means and still enjoy our quiet time. We are open minded people who love to learn about new cultures and enjoy making friends from all over the world.
While looking for work and waiting to study Vet nursing I mostly spend my time volunteering at various animal organisations to further my knowledge. I guess I am a down to earth, open, honest person. I love to laugh, smile, read and sketch.. Im a bit of a geek when it comes to games, although I don't play as much anymore. Creating things is my hobby, whether its a planting something just to watch it grow or a painting some furniture, small or big I am always actively doing something. Im a bit of a klutz and air head at times *forgetful* but very adaptable. I love to see others happy and believe honesty is the best way when living with anyone. I like constructive criticism, to discuss, Im always looking to better myself. I love to get to know any person.. but I would like to live with people that I can maybe collaborate with. Oh, I have a heap of furniture that is in storage. This huge double door fridge, a 1 door fridge probably suited for outdoors, an 8 seater beautiful oak table, bookshelves, a washing machine and a few other cute bits and bobs. It would be great to get them out but if they aren't needed its no biggie. As I mentioned, I love to get to know people but I also love it when people take the time to know me. Please feel free to send me a message with any questions :)
Hello flatmates! My name is Ed and I am a Londoner soon making a move to Melbourne for a working holiday. I am web developer by trade and maintain an interest in technology in general. I also enjoy gaming, socialising and outdoor activities. I am a clean and considerate individual who respects my surroundings.
Hi! We're a couple who are new to Melbourne. We're hoping to find a room to share for 2-3 months while we get settled. I'm studying winemaking while also working in wine retail. Oliver is studying software engineering and is a bartender at a music venue. We've both lived in share houses for 9-10 years so we're very well house-trained. We're clean, tidy and never have any trouble paying bills on time. We're equally happy to hang out with housemates or do our own thing. We're not party animals - we're much more into enjoying good food and wine than getting rowdy. I have a lot of diverse interests - cooking, sport (especially cricket), cinema (especially foreign and independent films), music, camping and hiking, history, learning new languages, etc. I'm a bit of a trivia buff and will never say no to a pub trivia night. I'm also very open to meeting new people and trying new things. Oliver's into sports (particularly cricket and AFL), fitness, music, web dev and puppies.
Looking for potential housemates to team up with to create a new home! Or to move into an established home! My current lease is up on Nov 20 2017, so ideally would like to have somewhere leased 3 or so weeks before then! I'm working full time in Fashion, I am super duper clean, and a total introvert! Prefer apartments, based on being more secure. Currently living in a 2 bed/2 bath apartment in South Bank, with a close friend, he is moving away which is why I'm looking for a new place, my current apartment is super pricey, so hoping this move can help me save some money/downsize. My priorities for a new home: 1. Proximity to public transport (ideally a train line) 2. Proximity to a major super market (Woolies/Coles) or if super close to a train line, knowing that I could simply catch the train to a supermarket. I have a lot of new (1-2 years old) items to contribute to common areas including - a 7kg bosche washing machine, 4 seater glass dining table with 4 black leather chairs, 2 black leather bench stools, all kitchen items except a fridge, 2 seater black leather couch, small coffee table, decorative items etc. However, if these items are not required EG couch, I can send some of these items back to my mums house. My personal interior style is very feminine and modern, with a decorative colour palette of hot pink, light pink, mint, grey, white. So hopefully you'd be cool with that in the common areas.
Hi all, I'm from the UK and start my new consulting job in Melbourne on 28th August (with a 2 year visa). I've booked my flights and will be available to meet from 20th August. I have some temporary accommodation sorted until I find somewhere more permanent, so moving in dates for Sept would work. I'm easy going, tidy, and enjoy running, gym, yoga, swimming. I like to spend time with friends, eating out, watching movies. I'd be interested to create a new house share or join an existing one :)
I'm Ryan, 25, full time electrical engineer working with robotics startup.

Some things that are on my wishlist but aren't deal breakers: -NBN or fast internet -Garage/Shed for tinkering Some things that are important to me: -Unfurnished room - I have my own stuff -Parking (permit/off street or quiet street)
