I am a Patient Transport Officer (non-emergency Ambulance Officer) and am seeking 'granny flat' accommodation. I moved down from Queensland 1 year ago and have been sharing with others up until now. A 57 yo divorced 'gentleman' who has been a home owner in the past and is clean living, quiet and respectful. Dogs seem to love me too as they are true judges of character ;) I also require the Internet.

Hey everyone, my name's Amber. Turned 30 this year and looking for a massive lifestyle and inspirational change - want to get away from Sydney as soon as possible and relocate to Melbourne. A bit of background on me - I've been a multi disciplinary Artist since I was a child, with a main focus on Acting, Singing and Musicianship. Completed my tertiary education in Acting and I'm currently doing distance study in Electronic Sound Production and Indigenous Studies, to help expand my mind and teach me new skills. I love to read and learn, have solid conversations and a good laugh, share knowledge - books and artworks make up 70% of my earthly goods! A few of my interests include Reading, Playing Guitar, Socializing with friends on the weekend, Writing, Dancing, Acting, Cooking, Travel, Theatre, Music Production and Songwriting, Singing, Yoga and Martial Arts, Gaming (Xbox 360 - I have one to bring to the house and a load of games, if that's your thing too), binge watching Netflix or getting into some hardcore SBS on demand / ABC iview when I have free time, Photography and Art of all forms. Social justice, human/civil rights and equality are vital concepts to me. By no means a definitive list, but it gives you a bit of an idea. I'm friendly, respectful, fun, keep things in the house clean and am a weird balance of someone who likes to say hi and be social round the house when it suits people, but can also respect your space/privacy and like to enjoy my own when I'm feeling hermity too - hopefully you won't be the type to take it personally if i need some time out to myself. Not a precious princess about things and am really adverse to passive aggressive types - if you're not the sort of person that can just have a calm, upfront chat and nip it in the bud if I accidentally do anything to annoy you, then we probably won't enjoy living together. I'm a smoker, although more than happy to go outside if you're not, as this is most people's preference, I'm not obnoxious about it and respect people's needs. Constantly burning fragrant oils / candles and incense anyway and am very conscious of mutual space, nothing like coming home to a house that feels welcoming and smells divine. Not a huge party animal, though I do enjoy occasionally having people round sometimes - during the week I'm pretty chill (although, also not boring hey - totally not adverse to cracking some wine or beers while cooking / having a friend round when the mood strikes - I'm a pretty mean cook, double plus bonus!). Weekends are always easier for getting out and about or catching up with people. If this sounds like someone you wouldn't mind sharing space with, let me know. Thanks in advance mates, look forward to meeting some like minds - keen for a long-term place I can make a home, with cool, fuss-free housemate/s who like the sound of my listing. Looking to make the move ASAP soon as I find something. Let me know if you have any questions. Peace and Thanks, Amber

Mitch

Looking in: Fitzroy, Collingwood, Carlton, Richmond, Brunswick

I'm a laid back Perth-born guy studying advertising at RMIT, and i'm looking (ideally) to get together with a few people and start a new share house, or possibly just a room in an existing house if the people are cool. I'm still pretty new to Melbourne and so i'd love to be living with people that will be down for beers or a good 2K/FIFA wager, and I'd be totally cool with you having mates over for drinks/small parties as long as you're not weird about me meeting them. So basically hit me up if you're a social guy/gal that isn't going to hide in their room all the time. I'm just going to dot-point stuff from here on out: - I'm a clean guy, but definitely not a neat freak, so your room can be a total pig-sty if you want, so long as common areas are kept presentable. - Couples okay - I don't own a car so Flemington and Kensington are appealing as they both have stores nearby and are also close to the CBD, but if you know of any other areas that are similar I'm definitely flexible. - I am a really sarcastic guy and constantly making jokes, but also love to have a lengthy debate over serious and interesting topics, so if those things don't appeal to you then i'm not your best option because they are the main pillars of my personality. - My cooking skills are seriously minimal (toast and spaghetti) - I'm on time with rent, and happy to split bills on anything extra in order to keep costs down. - Possibly okay if you have pets, but I would have to make sure my throat doesn't close up around them. (i'm a serious dog lover so being allergic is depressing as fkkkkk) - I'm not fussed about you bringing people home from bars/clubs so long as you flick me a text first so I have a chance to get out of your way. - I go to the gym, but i'm no bodybuilder, so I don't want you judging me when I pound down 2 pizzas alone. - I'm a diehard Crows fan, and a big follower of the NBA and Premier League, but I love to watch just about any sport. - I like to watch House of Cards, Game of Thrones, Suits, The Office, Friends re-runs, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and probably a bunch of other stuff I can't remember. - Oh and my favourite movie has been Titanic since i was 5 years old, I feel like that might be relevant somehow. - Other interests include; US Politics, Standup Comedy, Writing, Reading, Gaming (just basic stuff like sports games and the occasional shooter), Golf (i'm terrible at it but i enjoy a sunny day on the course), and drinking too much. That's pretty much it, I'm a good bloke to have around the house if you're not a super serious person, and i do my fair share to ensure harmonious living. If you're interested or if you have any questions please message me!

Camilla

Looking in: Preston, Northcote, Fitzroy, Thornbury, Collingwood

I am Camilla - Austrian (and half Swedish) and currently moved to Melbourne. I’m a full- time student at La Trobe and I’m searching for a nice place to live around! About me: I am an easy-going, friendly person, who likes to socialize and prefers a home more than a house...I like clean environments so I always keep things tidy. For me mostly the vibe in the house is important and that everyone is respectful with each other. Clear communication, reliability and a good sense of humour shared together, is what I like in my housemates. Moreover giving privacy when wanted/needed but also being able to hang out together is important for me. I love to cook, laugh and laugh, share a glass of wine, meditate, do Reiki, discuss life, read and simply enjoy life and everything that nourishes the soul ☺

Looking in: East Melbourne, Fitzroy, Carlton, Collingwood, North Melbourne

Born in Aus but grew up in England and backpacked around Aus the past 2 years. Now I'm looking for stability and routine for the next 6 months before uni starts (and potentially during uni as well). I'm a social and easy-going guy, but I'm not messy and don't rely on others for things when avoidable. I am big on music: love festivals, gigs and I play acoustic guitar. Also an avid cook, I'm a bit of a scientist so I like to experiment with flavours and see what mixes well with each other. Love geeking out to a board game or video. Considering getting into a martial art and/or ballroom or salsa dancing!

I'm looking for a Place to call Home. I work as a support worker, caring for people with a disibility & encouraging them to engage in meaningful activities. During my down time I enjoy, Tunisian Crochet, art, soul collage and Yoga/ meditation. Weekends include catching up with friends and family, coffee, movies, dinner, & shows. I Have lived in a few different share houses and really value honest constructive communication, sharing the cleaning, and paying utilities & rent on time. I'm always up for a chat over a cuppa, however I also recognise that there are times when people need uninterrupted chill out time. I'm happy to organise my own food, as there are a few things I'm not able to eat. While I do enjoy the occasional vegetarian meal, I do eat meat so I need a housemate who is ok with the smell of cooking meat. I have no pets & are more than happy to share the house with a dog. No cats (I'm allergic)

I'm down to earth and easygoing, clean and tidy. I'm respectful, kind and I like to cook. I love to laugh at myself and be a bit daggy/silly. I'm a no bs person but in a nice way - think Donna/Rachel (Suits). I work full time in the City and extra typing from home. I'm also a Mary Kay Consultant so always stocking up on samples (which of course I would share with my housemate - bonus!). I'm active, going to the gym etc. I love to have a laugh and good company. Love a casual drink or coffee. Big fan of random things. Oh and I love pups! Okay, so everyone has a downside. Here's mine (not an exhaustive list I'm sure - I am biased) - I work too much and I like a long shower (happy to compensate in the bills for this one). I've put 6 months just to choose something but I'm looking for economy of scale and good company in a nice place closer to the city.

I want to contribute to an existing household (house) sociably and environmentally wise, and have prior share-housing experience (current and prior). [open to team ups, but have minimal resources to furnish a place individually, so would outsource collectively if so] Prefer Housemates > housemate My search perimeters are Preston, Clifton Hill, Collingwood, Alphington, and Fitzroy North.

If this is like your share-house, then this works for me. I don't mind if friends visit - some notice is great to communicate to housemates I like animals (pets a bonus), am independent (I functionally and responsibly take care of myself, and my lifestyle, and also expect this of my housemates. Not looking for in each others pocket dynamic. Stable, reliable, honest, and mature beings who prefer to co-reside together and are amicably friendly will be kinship to me, with the probability of the occasional dinner together or recreational group activity.
