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! I'm a 22 y/o student from KL,Malaysia. Currently studying at Uni Melbourne. I'm easy going, tidy,respectful and most importantly - pays rent on time. I've been living in shared houses since 2015 so I know exactly what it takes to be a good and responsible housemate. :) Some details about me: -Love to explore around and meeting people -Enjoys watching movie and singing -Animal lover! I'm looking for a private room in a shared house/apartment (preferably somewhere close to my uni) and my desired term of stay is 3 months.
We are a quiet, friendly and tidy couple currently trying our hardest to move to Melbourne to become a part of the art/music culture and to meet new like minded people. We are seeking work in the city and have savings. We are clean and happy to lend a hand with any housework that needs to be done. We are traveling light and wont take up much space. We spend most of our free time out in nature making music and exploring the city. We are two peaceful people excited to make some new friends to share a home together!
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.
I am outgoing and easygoing. I love to have a good time but also respect personal space. I am tidy and responsible. I like to meet new people and am always up for a good laugh. I will study at ACU Early Childhood Education as an exchange student.
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!
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
Hi, I have found so many great flatmates on here and this time I'm the one looking. I have just moved back to Melbourne and I'm hoping to find a cool household of peeps that I can connect with. I've lived in share houses before and understand what needs to go down to create a good vibe and it's different with every house but often carries the same theme. I'm a Web Designer / Digital Strategist, I work for myself and travel around a bit. I play Basketball a couple of times a week, check out live music when I get the chance and go to Festival through the year too as it's a nice way to unwind. I'm from the Blue Mountains in NSW and I love the vibe in Melbourne as people down here seem really comfortable with themselves and I'm looking forward seeing who's out there. I hope I'm the right match for what you're looking for.
Hey, i am Marie, i am looking for a nice cosy home. I am a pretty laidback and considerate housemate. I enjoy the simplicity of life, good company, yummy home-made food and inspiring conversations. I like to share good times with my housemates, and also like my 'me' time I love yoga, philosocphy and everything related to well-being in general. I enjoy cooking and sharing meals, travelling, music concerts and playing games. I am a non smoker. Always up for a good chat over a drink or a nice meal. I work as a French teacher full time and study massage therapy on the side. Really look forward to finding a space that feels like "home" ...
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 :)
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.
I'm Ryan, 25, full time electrical engineer working with robotics startup. I like music, going to gigs/festivals, having beers and hanging out, looking to move into a fun sharehouse where everyone gets along. Looking to move immediately for the right room! 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)

Hello, I'm Elliot, currently in the suburbs of Melbourne. Looking to move sometime in the near future. In no rush, but would be good to meet new people and find a great place. I am a fairly normal guy, friendly and generally a happy person. I just got into full time work and around that I like to exercise most days and socialise when I can. Also like days to really chill too, respectful that people need to relax, I'm a pretty laidback person. Around that I like to go out for drinks and eat out more than I should.. Not a neat freak but would definitely say I'm clean and like to live in a clean space. 6 months was a guide, would like to stay in a place longer if all works out well
I'm new to Melbourne; young professional with 14 years experience in share-house living. I like keeping things neat, I lead an active and healthy lifestyle and I'm social, though I really enjoy having my own space and I respect the privacy of others. I tend to go adventuring most weekends and I will travel with my job, so will often not be around. I also love animals and wouldn't mind looking after any furry friends.
