Hey guys, looking for a room in a share house that will fit a queen bed and possibly a study desk and clothing rack (or come with walk ins). I'm a mature, friendly and studious pharmacy student also working casually at a pharmacy. I'm a vegetarian but living alongside meat eaters doesn't bother me. I'm very rarely home, but am up for drinks or a chat when I am. My hobbies include cooking or baking, movies, making things, swimming, exploring new places... If you think I sound like someone that would fit into your home, please don't hesitate to contact me!
I am a fulltime working professional , I enjoy quiet time , reading books soul music and quiet get togethers with friends , I usually go to bed at 10.00 , on weekends I like to clean up the house and organise myself for the weekahead. I can be friendly and give you your space as well, I am very helpful and wouldn't mind sharing household chores. please feel free to call for any queries.
I'm an easy going, friendly and respectful tenant. Work full time Monday to Friday as a Business Analyst. When I'm not working I'm usually rock climbing or doing something active. Im equally into socialising as I am reading a book, so happy to hang out but also understand down time and respect for space. I'm looking for a furnished room preferably with a private bathroom/ensuite though I'm open to a shared bathroom at the right place. Also looking for a place to park my car (street parking is fine). Only after a 6 month lease at the most. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
I'm currently studying at UQ St Lucia so preferably i would like something reasonably close to the campus. I'm a rather quiet person who spends most of their time studying, watching movies or seeing friends. I enjoy nearly all sports and i'm quite active myself. I drink socially and do not smoke. Apologies for the photo it didn't turn out well at all, i'm the one on the left (obviously).
I'm a Brissie girl - home from living in Berlin for the past year and am looking to move into an apartment/house from mid February (or potentially earlier) with a friendly, communicative and organised housemate or two! I'm a very social person, but work full time as a Media and Communications Officer in the CBD so won't be home most of the day. However! I'm very happy to share dinners and wines and chats in the evenings (or separately hide in our rooms and watch tv shows on me-time days). I love travelling, joking around as much as possible and all of the food in the world! (Fun fact - I did work as a cupcake froster in Berlin, so you know I'm not messing around when I say desserts of any kind are my weakness)
Hey Everyone! We are Jacqui and Jade. We will be moving down to Brisbane in early Feb, before uni starts. Not picky at all... we are happy to live with anyone that is friendly, tidy and doesn't mind a chat every now and then. Most of our time will be spent studying or working.

Hi my names Siobhan, I'm currently living on the Gold Coast and will be moving to Brisbane. I work in business whilst I am finishing my double degree. I'm a very clean and considerate roommate and respect others space. I'm a fun and friendly person who enjoy a glass of wine and a chat. I will always pay rent on time and always set up direct payments to ensure they are never late.
We are two friends who will be moving up to Brisbane next month.Milly is from Adelaide and is a Nurse and I'm in Property Management and originally from New York City. I have a whole house worth of furniture so happy to team up with 1-2 people (4 of us total max) to look for a place or if you have a place for rent hit us up. Looking for a 2-4 bedroom place with a balcony, a pool is greatly preferred. If you have a pet that a massive bonus. We would prefer to live with people close to our own age that are social, happy to chat, do group meals if they choose, but also know when to give people their own space. Happy to answer any and all questions.
I am an 18-year-old male, studying Commerce at UQ only transferring from Griffith on the Gold Coast this year. I am a very social person and will easily get along with anyone in the house. I do have respect for personal space and like to knuckle down and study. I have been brought up to always pull your weight within the household and depend on my living space being clean and functional. I currently work behind a bar on the southern GC, but have spent some time on the tools as well - only strengthening my appreciation and empathy for understanding every ones circumstances. I absolutely love to surf (fitting into the GC stereotype very easily) and have played soccer for several years. I love to keep fit and always am trying something new. I am quite open and enjoy talking about anything, one of the reasons I find University so interesting, and the appeal of a share house with other like-minded people.
Hi I'm Tegan. I work as a children's counsellor and I'm 30 years old. Clean, respectful and friendly. I love animals, the beach, picnics and exploring new places. Always up for a chat and a laugh but sometimes like quiet time as well. ☺️
I'm a new full-time student from Dubai starting at UQ in Semester 1, 2017. I will be studying Environmental Management. I was studying in the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign before. I'm the one wearing the purple/pink sweater in the picture. If you can't pronounce my name, don't worry, almost no one can at first, just call me Abhi! I'm super tidy and clean (won't mind if it's not), and pretty good at cooking too. Easy going, and always ready to help a friend. I am respectful towards everyone and will give you your privacy. I like my down time to focus and study. Doesn't mean I don't like to chill out or have fun. Always down to watch a movie or binge watch a tv show. I love going out and playing sports. I play football (Soccer), badminton and Quidditch (no, i'm not kidding, it's a pretty physical sport!), and good at picking up other ones too. Love spontaneous adventures and ready to walk/hike any-and-everywhere. I would love to live with any of you amazing people out there, so if you have a room to offer or are looking to team up, hit me up :D Cheers, Abhi
Hey my Name is Tarragon and I'm a 20 year old Aussie student studying Electrical Aerospace Engineering at QUT, Gardens Point. Im searching for either a room to rent, a granny flat to rent, or any type of accommodation where i have my own room, with furnishings and bills inlcuded(water, electricity, internet). Im a Tidy and respectful person, with a great attitude and very easy going personality. Im a very healthy and driven young male and love to keep fit also. Majority of the time i will stick to myself and do my own thing as my study load is quite large, but all the same looking forward to meeting new people and making some new freinds :) thankyou !!
Hi, my name is Monique. I am doing my Graduate Diploma in Teaching part time and will be working part time too. I am respectful of others, extremely clean and tidy and I dont mind having a chat and making dinner for my flatmates once in a while. I am also a very quiet person to live with and I enjoy living in a quiet home. I am very friendly but I like my own space too. I am happy to help with cleaning and I am reliable with paying rent and bills. Ideally I would like to live in a nice suburb in Brisbane, close to the action. I live a healthy lifestyle and would love to find similar people to share with. If you have something that is suitable, please drop me a line. Currently, I live on the Sunshine Coast, but looking to make the move to Brisbane for work and Uni purposes.
Hi there, my name is Jay and I am a 29 year old full time professional who works in Brisbane City. I am looking to move in with a like minded person/people into a share house, unit etc. I am a non smoker and do have the odd drink every now and then, however, I am certainly no party animal. I don't mind living with people who like to have fun and get down providing that it's not every night. I usually keep pretty busy and am tidy and courteous of other peoples space and things. I don't have any pets and travel light apart from my car, so I am looking for a place that at least has street parking available or I am happy to pay for a parking space. I am somewhat flexible around my move date. Any questions please feel free to contact me. Thanks, Jay
Hi there, my name is Kristana and I am looking for a unfurnished room preferably with a private bathroom in Brisbane to live - moving down in Mid-February. I am 21 years old and have a full-time job as an Insurance Broker. I am a non-smoker and have no children or pets.
I'm a 28 year old happy,positive,creative woman. I enjoying cooking, long walks down the beach and outdoors sports and activities. I have a passion for 🎶 music in general. I'm a understanding, caring thoughtful clean and tidy person.
Hey! I'm Emily, 20 years old and a student. I study at QUT and am a second year Secondary Education student majoring in History. I work part time at an Outside School Hours Care in Moggill and at Suncorp Stadium as Bar Staff. I'm friendly and quiet but still happy to be social with my new roomies. I've lived in share houses for four years and have shared with lots of different people, all ages, genders and nationalities. I'm an animal lover so pets are no issue for me, I'd say they're encouraged :) I'm looking for a place with easy access to public transport (specifically train stations or the 444 bus) and an unfurnished room is a must as I have a queen sized bed, desk and other miscellaneous bits of furniture and preferably somewhere air-conditioned because I am a wuss and this Brisbane heat is getting to me. I've joined a gym and attempt to go often but it usually ends in completing my Gilmore Girls binge on Netflix, my favourite pastime. I'm way too excited for Game of Thrones to return this year and roommates who watch it with me are encouraged to message me. Bonus points if you love Harry Potter. I can be a little flexible with the move date and am happy to overlap for a week or two if the right place comes along, If you want to know anything else just shoot me a message, I'm more than happy to answer any of your questions :) I'm happy to live with people in their 20s/early 30s, male or female houses don't bother me, students would be great so we can all suffer together at exam time! Not looking to share a bedroom though. (The easiest way to contact me is through flatmates rather than a phone call as I'm often working or won't pick up unknown numbers)
Hey! I'm Kelly and I work full-time in Woolloongabba as a graphic designer and am looking for a place with my 1 and a half year old dog! He's a border terrier cross, so a small breed with a huge personality who is house trained! Would need a fully fenced yard for him and he's used to being inside and out when I'm home. Happy to find somewhere with another dog, preferably a larger breed as he takes a little to warm up to smaller dogs but definitely would like them to meet and see if they got along or not whether small or large! I'm pretty chilled and would prefer to live with no more than 2 other roommates unless the property is spacious enough that you're not on top of one another. Also don't mind the suburb as long as it's not too far out and moving date is completely flexible.
I am quiet and respectful but also friendly and happy to chat :) I'm a tidy person and I love writing music (with headphones) and taking photos. I have studied creative technology and occupational health at uni and now work full time. I want to live closer to the CBD with some nice people.
Hi there the names Rhys Branch, a future student at UQ and currently work for telstra (if you hate telstra im sorry), i am looking for short term acoomodation in the central brisbane area but im pretty easy and felxible about the location. I am 19 years old im easy as to get along with and even easier to please, really felixible and keen to try new things with some new roommates, the move in date is anytime after january 30th.
I love having a few drinks with friends on weekends but also recognise the need for privacy and ⌚ out. I really enjoy trying new things and finding out about new friends. I am in the SES so storm season can mean I'm not around much, and I take time to see my parents and keep in touch with family. A geek, a nerd (my own observations), somewhat stubborn with a ♥ of gold (others observations).
First year university student moving to Brisbane from Far North Queensland to start studying biomedical science at UQ. Just looking for a place, preferably furnished, where I can stay until June when I m going to be moving in with my sister. I don't mind parties but tend not to host them (so don't worry about that) and I spend a lot of time locked in my room trying force myself to study. I am however a sociable person and do enjoy a good discussion and can cook a few basics (I'm still learning). I consider myself mature and responsible, and will aim to keep the place tidy. I'm fairly friendly and outgoing but respect other people's privacy. I love to read, try to keep fit (but goodness knows I lack the motivation), and enjoy a variety of activities from hiking to binge watching Netflix. I'm very open minded and would love a flatmate or two who are nice and easy going.
Hi! My name is Kaitlyn. I am a 20 year old Kiwi girl who has been living in Australia for over 2 years now. I work full time Monday to Friday as an administration assistant in a law firm. I am always up for adventures, drinks, beach, sports and patting dogs. I am hoping to live with people that are some-what like me so that we can get on like a house on fire. I pay bills on time and believe that I can add to the vibes of your house! Would love to hear from you soon! NO SHARE ROOMS
I'm a 20 year old music photographer. I work full time in the city as a sales rep for Telstra Monday to Friday and take photos at concerts most weekends. I am extremely laid back and as long as you wash your own dishes I'm not fussed about much else. I have a large 2 year old white cat named Minke who pretty much just sleeps and eats all day. He is an indoor cat, fully litter trained, but due to his curious nature, secure doors/fly screens on windows is essential or he'll try and go on an adventure. I'm not sure how he gets along with other animals as he has only ever been the only animal in the house. I am available to move within the next month or so, as I'm looking to move closer to the city/my friends/ my boyfriend Look forward to hearing from you :) PS - don't judge me on that photo, i can't figure out how to zoom it out hahah

I'm a 22 yr old student who just graduated, will be doing a phD in engineering from July. I'm a very sociable person who likes going out over the weekends. I'd make sure that the house I share with others are quite and clean. :)
Hi! I have lived in my fair share of share houses so I am respectful and tidy :) I am friendly but also pretty quiet, non-smoker, and quite busy so I'm not home too often.
Hey! my name is Isobel, i'm looking to team up with people around the same age as me to move into a place early February. I'm looking for a modern 4/3/2 bedroom house/apartment around Kelvin Grove, Paddington, Alderley, Milton, Herston, Spring Hill, and Red Hill, anywhere close to the city really. I'm 19 and I study at QUT full time (Bachelors of Business and Fine Art (Interactive Visual Design) and I work part time in hospitality. I'm fun, easy going, creative, very clean and respectful. I'm quiet social and love hanging out but I understand personal space. I love watching movies/ tv and love to cook healthy meals. Send me a message if there's anything else you want to know about me! :)
Hi! I'm moving to Brisbane from Perth for an Engineering job in the CBD. I'm easy going, sociable and a tidy person. Happy to have a few drinks, group dinners and just generally hang out etc. but I'm also respectful of other people's space. I like spending my time outdoors and am keen to explore Brisbane and QLD being new to the city. Ideally would like to live with 2 or 3 other similar people (guys and girls) either to team up to find a place or a room to rent in an existing share house. Not really keen on an apartment/unit. I'm staying with a friend when I first get to Brisbane and can stay there until around the end of Feb so I'm flexible with a move in date but would rather get somewhere more permanent sooner rather than later.
We have a small puppy who loves cuddles. We both work and study full time so we wouldn't be around too much. Ideally we are looking for a granny flat but we are open to sharing with another couple or single. I study design and my partner studies media comms. We are friendly, clean and like a few drinks on the weekend.
Medical intern starting work in February. I am originally from Mauritius but have been in NSW for the past 6 years. Very easy-going and always happy to meet new people. I am currently looking for a 6 month lease since I'll be doing my rural terms in the second half of the year.
Hello there, I am a French postgraduate student beginning my master at UQ this year. Last year I studied in Sydney and worked part-time in hospitality. Back in Sydney I used to share my flat with 5/6 roommates and truly enjoyed it, but today I am looking for a private room in a shared flat with fewer people, allowing me to focus more on my studies. I am a respectful, clean and outgoing person. If you are interested in sharing a flat with me, do not hesitate to contact me.
I am currently renting in Newmarket. I'm in the downstairs of a large Queenslander that was set up as a b&b and the other flatmate is an elderly man who is working and very easy to get along with. However, I would love to get into accommodation with younger and more vibrant people. I gym regularly, I have been in marketing and now moving into finance management at Natureworks - the No Poo Zoo out in Highvale in the jungle!! I use to spend every weekend working on my acreage in Samford. Now that I'm in the city I'm looking for people to hang out with on weekends and do anything social. NOT BINGO :) I have my own rockclimbing shoes; harness, I road cycle with the City Lifecycle, my boyfriend takes me jet skiing occasionally, however would be great to have people around me who are energetic, enthusiastic and adventurous to add to my life. Doing things that don't necessarily take a lot of $$ is great. I want to buy a house in inner city, but that's proving a challenge in this current market. I have 3 daughters all finished uni and living in city - doing their own thing. I do love to have the occasional dinner party with them. They are all bright, friendly and balanced. 2 with steady boyfriends, one on the prowl again :) I have Hungarian blood in me - so in the past I have loved to party but I am mellowing a little there and looking after my health more. I have a cousin from Hungary and his son coming to visit me for 3 weeks in February which I am excited about. I am very health conscious and would rather cook than buy takeaway. I'm very clean and neat and always happy to help if someone's doing it tough. I love to travel, however have to save for the next trip after 3 holidays last year - skiing, Barossa and a cruise. I do have my own friends who I see socially occasionally however they are all busy with their own families and usually not available to hang out with on weekends etc. I love celebrating family, Christmas, birthdays and just loving life.
Hello! im a fun loving fit nerdy type, happy to hangout and chat with drinks etc but i also tend to keep to myself and respect your space. Love to cook and bake the odd dessert like cheesecakes and cinnamon scrolls! neat and tidy, always clean up after myself. I bring with me a a 4k TV which im happy to keep in the lounge if that sweetens the deal! feel free to hit me up for a chat and see if we mesh. :) Need to be out By March 12th but can be out as soon as the start of February
I'm a Colombian student and part time employee. I'm relaxed, enjoy a good chat, movie and wine but appreciate solo time. Shared areas should be tidy and nice, being considerate to others is important while sharing space. Must be very close to regular public transport or train station, as I have to move around a lot from work to uni and home in a day. $185 including bills.
Hey guys, I'm Bangin, 24, student from Berlin, Germany, here in Brisbane for an 8-week internship by the beginning of March. I've seen many corners from Europe and would love to share my stories and hear yours! I'm very easy going and love to meet new and interesting people. Within the week, I'll be working in a hospital, in the evening and weekends, I'd like to discover Brisbane's and Australia's beauty - maybe you'd like to team up?
Hi there, I'm Klowie and I will be attending UQ St Lucia starting Feb 27 with a Bachelor of Biomedical Science. I am easy going and very devoted to my studies so I won't disrupt the household, however I am always up for a good chat or friendly banter anytime. I would ideally like to move in sometime early Feb and would prefer a majority female house. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I grew up on a cattle farm, but moved to Brisbane for study. I'm healthy and relaxed but studious. Would love to share with supportive, fun people who are happy to hang out. I come with a 12 year old dalmatian, so pet friendly is a must! She is an inside dog, but very well trained. I enjoy gardening and wine and tea. In August/September I'm leaving for exchange in Canada, but I'll be back in early 2017 and would be happy to move back in if the room is available. Toowong is my first choice, but happy to move to another suburb nearby.
I work full time Monday to Friday (sometimes Saturday's and well) so I am usually very busy during the week. I'm pretty sociable and like to go out with friends on the weekend or spend time with family so unless I'm relaxing I'm not home often besides the evening. I'm very clean and like to keep the house nice and presentable and usually work well with a rotating weekly cleaning roster. I'm never late on bills and currently do not have a pet but would eventually like to get a cat if possible. I'm not bothered by smokers and am LGBT+ friendly.
Hey I'm Emma! I'm currently studying a dual degree at QUT and my spare hours are usually spent working or sleeping. Evidently, I am quite reserved but I am always excited to meet and get to know new people.
Hi! My name is Kieran. FIRST THINGS FIRST (EXTREMELY IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ!): 1) This ad posting is VERY LONG and I've done that DELIBERATELY. I do this to "Weed out the Tyre Kickers" (as it's known/called in Online Marketing Circles). Of course the "Tyre Kickers" are bad flatmates! 2) This ad may cut-out for you (being so long). If so, simply send me me a brief message with your email and I will send you this as a word attachment for easy viewing. :) And Don't Worry I will NEVER spam you! 3) If you DON'T WANT TO READ THE WHOLE THING THEN JUST PLEASE UNDERSTAND MY TWO BASIC REQUIREMENTS BEFORE MESSAGING: a) I need air con (ideally in the bedroom), and b) I need reliable (without major dropouts) and fast internet connection. WHY READ IT IN FULL? (EXTREMELY IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ!): - Well let's face it you never really know until you start "Sharing" with someone. We all know that!! - But why not take out some of the GUESS-WORK? Take out some of the RUSSIAN ROULETTE?? The Random DART THROWING at the Board??? - Reading my ad (or document) in full may bring you closer to finding the ideal flatmate :) - And the alternative? It's much closer to Russian Roulette in my opinion. You can go back to the next ad and ask the same old questions...It's all so COMMON...Are you clean and tidy? (who would admit to being not)...Are you social? (who would admit to being a hermit crab)... Are you easy to live with? (who would admit to being a/the next axe murderer!!). DON'T JUDGE ME (EXTREMELY IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ!): - As a flatmate based off the writing style/tone of this post. - As explained (in this post/ad) I'm an extremely relaxed and calm individual. I'm VERY EASY to live with. - Being a Writer (for a living) I many different writing styles/tones and I have chosen to adapt this style (with this level of detail) in the hope of attracting the perfect place and flatmate! Let's Cut Straight to the Chase (which is what you want)... I'M NOT (PLEASE READ - ANSWERS YOUR MAIN QUESTIONS): - In-your face type person. In fact I'm the complete opposite! I'm friendly and social but I tend to do "my own thing" in the main. This is just my personality. I AM (PLEASE READ - ANSWERS YOUR MAIN QUESTIONS): - Single/Straight/Mature/Non-smoking 36 year old Professional Working Male. - Looking to Share with one Other (unless you have a place that is very Special- hint hint) Professional Working Person (sorry no couples). - EXTREMELY reliable. Rent and bills will always be paid on time or in advance. I will supply you with references from my current landlord and previous landlords (if required). - 100% Without a Doubt Looking to Live somewhere for at Least the Next 12 months (probably Longer) and I am more than happy to Sign a/the Lease. - Calm, Relaxed and Laid-Back Individual. Yes that's right. I am the complete opposite of someone that is highly strung. That's what you want right? I seek likewise. And no that doesn't mean we can't hold an intelligent conversation ;) - Very Clean and Tidy but Definitely not Obsessive. "Obsession" is not a good trait to have in your life. It's what pushes bodybuilders to take steroids...it's what forces people to count every single calorie (yeah I used to do this lol)...it's why people with OCD count in their head. If the picture is not clear enough now I'll make it CRYSTAL. If you are "Obsessive" about anything (particularly cleaning) then this probably won't work. In regards to chores (like you no doubt) I restrict these to around the meal times. I have weekly chores I like to do each Friday afternoon (yes nice for some working from home lol) so that the flat/unit/property is nice and clean for the weekend! I also have monthly chores (but lets net go there and put you to sleep) ;) If you have or are open to getting a cleaner then I will consider that too. But I'm fine either way. - Moving from my Current Place in Sandgate because there is no Air-Con or Ceiling Fans! (I WILL NEED AIR CON - PLEASE READ FURTHER BELOW). - Writer (as mentioned earlier) and Online Marketer for a living. I have a VERY stable income and have been doing freelancing (writing/online marketing) work from home for the last 5 years (that's right, it's NOT new). Work references can easily be supplied. Better still, just check my LinkedIn Profile below! I work from home between the hours of 8:30am-5pm Monday to Friday. I divide my time equally between writing and marketing. That's around 20 hours of writing a week and 20 hours of working on a large marketing project (which I'm not getting paid for yet - but my time will come lol). DO NOT WORRY I AM QUITE NOT LOUD if you home during house hours. I'm a writer (firstly) and a marketer (secondly). In Plain English: I'm not on the phone (or listening to music) really at all as my work is obviously writing based. It is only every now and then when I get a new Client. Look let's just be honest. The ideal scenario is that you would be at work (in the main) during the week between those rough hours :) I CAN (PLEASE READ - ANSWERS YOUR MAIN QUESTIONS): - Give your PETS attention (if you have them and are at work) during my working day (my breaks). I like animals and can do this :) - Mind your PETS (including walking) and look after your belongings if you are away on Business/Holiday/Weekend Breaks a lot! You might be in a bind right now but I could be the SOLUTION TO YOUR PROBLEM. - Sign for your registered mail (during the week) and save you a lot of time lining up at the post office on Saturday Morning! I WILL (PLEASE READ - ANSWERS YOUR MAIN QUESTIONS): - Move in at WHATEVER date suits you! That's right. I want to move sooner rather than later but I'm in no rush. I'm not on a lease currently and can move whenever (and I mean the exact day/date that works for you). - ABSOLUTELY 100% WITHOUT A SHADOW OF A DOUBT NEED AIR-CON!! Surely having either air-con or ceiling fans should be compulsory (like insulation) in Queensland! Yes, I'm not a Queenslander (originally) if you haven't guessed already. And No this does not mean I will use the air con all day and night! I will use it to be comfortable and in moderation. I'm more than happy to chip in for the extra electricity bill if I use it more (I would in fact over-compensate you 100%). - Consider a SPACIOUS GRANNY FLAT/SPACIOUS STUDIO (if you have one on offer) provided it has Air-Con and that I can get solid/reliable (without dropouts) internet connection. It would have to be of a decent size though as I work from home during the week. I WANT (PLEASE READ - ANSWERS YOUR MAIN QUESTIONS): - Place with decent size kitchen and living room but this is not high on my hit list! I would much rather have a bigger bedroom (as explained below). I'D LIKE (PLEASE READ - ANSWERS YOUR MAIN QUESTIONS): - Flatmate this is just very calm, relaxed and laid-back. Simple as that. A bit of intelligent conversation doesn't go astray either ;) - Ensuite or Separate Bathroom (but not essential). - Ceilings fans are always good (in addition to air con). I'D LOVE (PLEASE READ - ANSWERS YOUR MAIN QUESTIONS): - Place that is very open/bright. I lived/worked in London 5 years and know all about the cold, rain and the DARKNESS!! I'm definitely more productive/efficient/creative when operating in a bright/open space. I NEED (PLEASE READ - ANSWERS YOUR MAIN QUESTIONS): - Decent (and I mean DECENT) sized bedroom. This should fit a queen size bed (ideally) and standard size desk (definitely). There should be a bit of a room to move too! Remember guys this is not only my bedroom but my "Creative Working Space." I'm NOT part of the corporate working world now. I've considered renting office space but I can't justify the cost at this stage in my life. I'M NOT LOOKING FOR (PLEASE READ - ANSWERS YOUR MAIN QUESTIONS): - Place that is miles (more than 15 minutes walk for me) from PUBLIC TRANSPORT. I won't have a car for at least the next 3-6 months and so nothing further has to be said! - Place that is miles (more than 15 minutes walk for me) from any type of SHOPS (groceries etc). - Place that is miles from ANY GYM (more than 15 minutes walk for me). - Place with LOTS OF LAWN and GARDEN to be maintained. Unless you love doing this of course! A little bit might be OK. In summer the maintenance just becomes too much. - PARTY HOUSE or NOISY ONE. I need the peace and quiet most of the time. And no I don't mean "Church Quiet." I live in society too lol ;) I'M LOOKING FOR (PLEASE READ - ANSWERS YOUR MAIN QUESTIONS): - Place that is 12-15 minutes walk max to TRAIN STATION/SHOPS/GYM/S. Buses are good but prefer trains. With Shops I mean groceries. - AIR CONDITIONED place. Ideally in all main rooms. I understand it's expensive and I don't plan to use it much but I need it to be comfortable during the day and on briefly at night to get to sleep. Don't worry I will over-compensate you (when the bill comes in) for my usage. - RELIABLE (no dropouts in main) and FAST (doesn't have to be lightning!) INTERNET connection. My income depends on this. At my current property there has been problems with the connection at times which is a real negative. To summarise: I'm looking for RELIABILITY (UP-TIME) over speed (but of course the speed must be reasonable). - PARKING (either reliable street parking or even better lock up garage). I will get a car eventually!! - PARTLY FURNISHED (TV, Fridge/Freezer, Washing Machine at least). I don't mind chipping in for other stuff. For my bedroom I have a standard size desk and will buy a queen size bed if the room doesn't have one. That's all the furniture I have! All the rest is clothes. So if you are selling anything then I might be interested :) OPTIONAL READING - LEARN (NOT GUESS) MORE ABOUT YOUR TRUE FLATMATE Now for the Extremely Boring Nitty Gritty Minute Detail Part! Lol OK I'm joking about Nitty Gritty!! But Why the Detail? I ask you WHY NOT?? 1) Think of the hundreds (if not thousands of dollars) you may potentially have to spend if you choose the wrong flatmate based of: a) Putting a basic ad up and HOPING for the best. b) Just asking them a few STANDARD questions at the viewing. c) Going off their DEMEANOR and what they LOOK like. 2) And no I'm not just talking about absolute worst case scenarios like damage to your property. Yeah that can happen (but it's pretty rare - you have to assume most people are good people). a) I'm talking about advertising costs and just lost rental income. b) Not to mention your precious valuable time wasted! YOU CAN NEVER EVER PUT A DOLLAR FIGURE ON THIS!! OPTIONAL READING - LEARN (NOT GUESS) MORE ABOUT YOUR TRUE FLATMATE - I have recently done some exploring around Brisbane suburbs (without a car - as I don't have one now but will look to buy in next 6 months) and found that the "Listed Preferred Suburbs" best fit my requirements. - I will consider the areas of Nundah, Toombul, Sherwood, Oxley, Fairfield, Auchenflower, Taringa, Toowong, Indooroopilly, Mitchelton, Sunnybank, Sunnybank Hills, Bulimba (maybe wishful thinking) and Hamilton (most definitely wishful thinking). - These suburbs (depending on the location of the property) meet most of my criteria. Please give me a shout if you have something in those areas! - For other suburbs it would want to be SOMETHING SPECIAL!! - Everything comes down to the place and of course I want to be able to gel and live comfortably with you :) I'll just know straight away when I see the place and meet you. I'm very much an instinct person (like most of us). OPTIONAL READING - LEARN (NOT GUESS) MORE ABOUT YOUR TRUE FLATMATE - BIT ABOUT ME: - I like the gym (first thing in the morning), walks (near the water if I can), tennis (now and again), football (on TV), admiring nature (whenever I can), travelling (every so often) reading (daily for work and before bed), writing (for work and pleasure), self-improvement (generally), online marketing (work), restaurants (many), socialising (mainly on weekends) and coffee (in small doses). - I'm a social/friendly person but I'm definitely more on the quiet side. I'm not big on TV (in one place I didn't even own a TV lol) at all so don't expect me to join you on the couch watching it. I don't mind the news and a bit of sport though. I just find you learn more by reading. - I do all of my socialising with friends outside of the flat/property but I 100% don't mind if you have people over. I'm not one for dinner parties but go for it!! - I'm not a vegetarian. I cook my own meals as have my own diet I need to follow. Of course there may be a time where a meal or take-away could be shared. - I'm a clean and tidy person and expect likewise. - I'm straight and single currently. I'm too focused on my online business at the moment to pursue anything. - I'm open to living with people of all cultures and sexuality. - I have lived and worked in Sydney (4 years) London (5 years) and Melbourne (3 years) previously. OPTIONAL READING - LEARN (NOT GUESS) MORE ABOUT YOUR TRUE FLATMATE - MY WEEK DAY SCHEDULE: - I'm up each day at 5am (always) and go to bed at 9pm (98% of the time) in the evening. I shoot for eight but settle for around 7 hours sleep! - I'm extremely quiet when I get up at the time. I simply get up, have my morning coffee and head to the local gym. I find it sets up my whole day :) - Then I'll simply come home (from the gym) and have my breakfast and then do some morning chores (quietly if you are in bed). - By 8:00am (yeah I like to relax in the morning not rush) I'll go into my bedroom/office/creative space (whatever you want to call it lol) and do some pleasure/work reading or generally relax (depending on my work schedule for the day). - Then between the hours of 8:30am-5pm I'm working solidly (with breaks - yes including patting your dog or cat ;)). - 5pm-6pm: I will go for a wander/stroll/walk/jog/run (whatever I feel like). - 6:30pm-8pm: I will have dinner and watch a bit of TV (news or whatever is on - I'm not fussy). - 8pm-9pm: I ALWAYS (and I mean always) unplug/tune-out and minimise technology usage completely. Just read (mostly non-fiction). - 9pm: Bed!! Lol. All pretty structured right? Well these times are NOT ALWAYS STRICT. DON'T WORRY I'VE NEVER BEEN ONE FOR THE ARMY. I use them more as guidelines (but this will give you A GREAT idea as to who you would be living with and when you might see me etc etc). OPTIONAL READING - LEARN (NOT GUESS) MORE ABOUT YOUR TRUE FLATMATE - MY WEEKEND SCHEDULE: - Like Most of us I like to unwind and generally relax on weekends :) - I still get up early ( around 6am) but I do stay up later and don't have such a set/regimented/structured day planned! - I'm more a "go-with-the-flow" type of person when it comes to socialising on weekends. Yeah I keep a strict diary for my work but not for social engagements :) - I have a small group of friends in Brisbane (as still quite new to the city). - On weekends I like to get out where possible. For example gym on a Saturday. Lunch/Movie/Dinner with a friend. I might meet up with my youngest sister (I have 3) too. - I'm not the sort of person that will go out for a whole day though. It's generally for half a day or maybe 3/4 of the day (max). Lol I'm just telling this so you know that I will be around a bit on weekends. I'm working on a online marketing project (which I'm passionate about) and so I will spend some time in my room working on that. You might say why work on the wkend? Well for me it's not really work as I'm passionate about it. It's more fun :) I also have a plan and don't always plan to be doing this on wkends! STILL WITH ME??? - We are finished now Lol. FINALLY YOU SAY!! - But at least now you have a much BETTER IDEA as to the person you would be living with! - I'm sorry but I've never been a fan of just throwing a dart at the dartboard and hoping for the best. You need more precision than that if you want to attract the right flatmate (or anything else you want in life). Nothing in life is random despite lotto numbers (despite what you believe). TAKE THE NEXT STEP!!! 1) Please send me a brief (lol not this long) message or text if you have something that will fit my main criteria or if you have any questions for me. 2) I am very responsive to messages (outside of work hours - I do have time on my breaks though) and just to repeat I currently have a place where I can leave at any time. 3) Please avoid calling me (about your place) between the hours of 8:30am-5pm (my work hours). If you have to then please just leave a voicemail and I will get back to you. Calling outside these times is perfectly fine :) FINAL NOTE: - Messages (from property owners) that don't meet my basic requirements (i.e. no air con or not near public transport) will be ignored (it's a long post but seriously just skim read guys - you do it each and every day!). - No hard feelings if I don't respond :) Thanks for your time :) Kieran NOTE: I may be interested in Teaming-Up (and finding a place) but just with one other person (no couples) and you would need to have (or invest) in the majority of the furniture. Don't worry I'd be willing to chip in too :)
