Claire
New | $200

Claire

Looking in: Gungahlin, Narrabundah, Amaroo, Curtin, Hughes, Franklin, Deakin, Phillip, Weston Creek

We are Claire (27, full time scientist) and Chilli (7, full time couch potato) and although we just moved back - our parents are selling up our free digs, so we are looking for somewhere to live! Claire has been renting/share-housing (on & off) since 2014, and Chilli is newer to the game but did so in 2016. We are boring - so clean, tidy, early risers with nanna bed times. Claire does all the normal human things - talks, exercises out of necessity rather than enjoyment, watches TV, likes board games and escape rooms, is a dishwasher stacker/unstacker extradordiare, a good cook and an average baker. Chilli is housetrained and all round “good boy” (kid, dog + cat friendly - with NSW Green Collar) whose special skills include sleeping, collecting (soft toys, the occasional cushion), smooching and claiming unsupervised food... We spend most weekends (Fri-Sunday night) in Sydney with Luke (Claire's husband & Chilli's dad) - Chilli goes too, but we will spend about 1 weekend a month in town - and it'd be cool if you'd be okay with him visiting. We have some furniture so happy to share with the group, or start a house share. Flexible with anywhere in Canberra. Looking to move most likely late July to early August. Preferably we’d like you to love dogs and Chilli hates the outdoors, so you'd need to be okay with him inside. There is the possibility for Chilli to renounce the spoiled only child life to live with his dad & fur siblings....but we'd prefer to be together.

I am looking for a place closer to work (ABS, Belconnen). I am a pretty relaxed house mate who enjoys board games and good food (did someone say cheese...) I am looking for self sufficient friendly housemates who might like to share an occasional dinner/ drink/ movie. I would be looking to move around mid June. If this sounds like it would suit let me know. Cheers, Jethro

Looking in: Fyshwick, Yarralumla, Red Hill, Narrabundah, Kingston, Griffith, Forrest, Deakin, Barton

I'm just about to move up to Canberra to take up a role as a Sustainability Analyst. Looking for accomodation for a minimum of 3-6 months. I'm a little reserved initially but I really open up once I start getting to know people, and I'm always down to relax with people and really keen to make new friends in Canberra. I'm 25 and love reading, spending time outdoors (and indoors). Really enjoy having a chat and getting to know new people. I'm clean and tidy so you won't have to worry about me tidying up after myself.

Hi there! My name is Chiara, I’m 28 and in from Italy. I’ll be soon on my second working holiday visa, and I’m moving to Canberra to start working there and I need a room ASAP. I’m a people person, very sociable but I can respect people’s privacy and needs as well. I have been living in share houses for many years now, so I’m not new to this. :) I love movies, to share dinners and drinks, to chill and Japan :D Cheers!

Clare

Clare

Looking in: Nicholls, Belconnen

I am a youthful 55yrs post-surgery Transgender person who is very easy going. I'm currently at University of Canberra studying Bch Of Public Health. I am mostly seeking to start a new share property, so anyone willing to move into 'fresh' accommodation with me would be ideal! Just 2-3 people including me would be preferable. You would need to be willing to sign-up to a joint lease with all tenants. I can basically furnish a large home if necessary. However I don't have a dining suite or a lounge suite. * Kitchen = very large twin door fridge, microwave and just about every cooking item you could want! * Living = large timber pieces including wall units, bookcase, hallway table and entertainment unit (for television, etc). * Laundry = front loading washing machine, ironing board, etc. * Outside = lawn mower, whipper snipper, water hose, etc. The selfish bit! I have a seven piece bedroom suite, so i'd be requiring the largest bedroom in a property. I also have a study desk in my bedroom where i'm currently living. (I've kinda got used to this set-up!) I have an existing NBN Internet contract with unlimited data and a 100mb speed connection. It also includes the Optus 'Fetch' TV with 6 channels and access to netflix, etc. If I/we can source a new property in an existing NBN suburb, I can transfer the service to that location. (I know many suburbs to the West of Belconnen are being wired-up for NBN soon.) Although I can wait until June 30, I am hoping to find a new place to live anytime from late May onwards. My share of any rent would be $185 per week maximum (I am a Uni student after all.) I'd prefer a property that is in very good condition and located on the North side of Canberra - ideally within reasonable travel distance to the University of Canberra. But i'm flexible for the 'right' property. I think of home as a relaxing place to escape the 'noise' of our busy and stressful lives. So anyone who wants to live in a comfortable, quiet home environment, i'd like to hear from you! Having said that, friends dropping by is a good thing! I like to cook a dinner for my friends every so often and i'd be more than happy for my housemates to join in. If baking muffins in the kitchen whilst sipping a hot chocolate on a Winter's Sunday morning appeals to you, we'd be perfect housemates! That's it !!! Hit me up if you're interested in joining forces to find a new home!

Hey future roomie! As you'd probably already established, I'm Georga, I am 25 years young (old) and am currently living in Franklin I moved to Canberra a little over a year ago and absolutely adore it here. I work in construction full time, and do 1, maybe 2 waitressing shifts a week at the Dickson Tradies. I quite like a drink, or 10 and love nothing more than cutting loose on weekends (I start work super early during the week so no late nights for this Grandma) I am a very social person and would love nothing more than entertaining friends on the weekends with BBQ's and wines. Not fussed on the area, anywhere North side. I come with bedroom furniture a BBQ and an outdoor lounge setting. Ideally looking for a room with ensuite, but that’s not a deal breaker. Parking is a must though. About you: I would love to live in a sociable, friendly and generally happy happy household. X

Hello, I am pretty down to earth. I run my own business which keeps me pretty busy but otherwise i like all sports and staying fit. I have a huge stack of board games if you wanna get around games nights. I have the best looking border collie you have seen. His name is Alf and he comes to work with me everyday (i am a builder). He is very chilled, sleeps outside in a pimp dog house but whole endeavour in life is fetch. If your place does't allow dogs then he is able to stay at my folks. Anyway send me a msg if you'd like to have a chat. Thanks

Creative professional and coach recently moved to Canberra and looking for a share house with character (people and house). Working full time on a government contract and studying design in my spare time. Lots of experience living in share houses and contributing to a positive, respectful and attractive space. Enjoy a glass of wine and chat after work or on weekends. Like to cook and share meals when the timing works. A large room with a nice outlook would suit me best to fit a queen sized bed, dresser and desk, or a small room and access to study/studio space. I have a beautiful 8 seater dining table and chairs if there is room, plus a coffee machine and some great kitchenware. Will consider a semi-rural property as I enjoy peace and nature. Still pretty social though. If you have dogs count me out because I have allergies. Cats, chooks, rabbits etc are a bonus.

Looking in: Karabar, Griffith, Fyshwick, Deakin, Manuka, Queanbeyan

Hey all, I'm pretty much a "what you see is what you get" kinda guy, polite and friendly by nature, I'm also clean tidy and respectful. I love travelling and the outdoors, meeting new people and having great conversations. Having said that, I also understand and respect the need for privacy and expect the same of others. I've moved to Canberra for a career change and now that I'm settled in my new role I'm looking for a nice and convenient place to live. I'm a Frenchman in my early 30s and have been in Australia for about 6 years now, but in Canberra just a few months. In my spare time I like reading, exercising, watching Netflix or playing video games, listening to music or just generally socializing with friends and meeting new people. I also love skiing and the mountains (especially in Europe and Japan), I speak fluent French and English and a little bit of Spanish (and a few words in Japanese) and I'm always up for practicing. That's really all I care to say as I'm that type of person you'll "get" by meeting in person rather than just reading about me preaching about myself. Happy to answer any questions though. All the best! Nic
