Hey, I'm looking for a long term room in any of the inner suburbs, preferably within 45 mins cycling time of carlton. I work part time and spend the remainder of my time reading, tryna learn piano and going on outings with friends. Have lived in share houses before and am tidy + reliable with cleaning up and paying rent/bills. I'm always up for the odd cook up/cheap wine when I'm around but respectful of others' space/time. I'll need a place with parking available (street is fine). If you think you've got something in my budget - max $650 p/m - shoot me a message :) Emily

Hiya, I'm moving to Melbourne from Perth to come study Interior Design at RMIT Uni. ideally, looking for my own small unit ...partly furnished with white goods would be even better! Will also consider house shares but no room shares. Up to $200pw is what id be looking at spending (ahh the life of a student) I'm 34 years old, so my partying days are quite behind me. Much prefer quiet nights in reading, listening to music- huuuuge music lover...though don't ask me what i listen to because i have a huge range of tastes ranging from ska, rocksteady, Old R&B, rockabilly, to old funky hip hop and old school metal... coming from a family with musicians i was always taught to keep my music tastes open! Love watching documentaries- mainly true crime, paranormal, Nat Geo, and environmental. Drinking tea, health & wellbeing, Kmart, aromatherapy, cooking, drawing and potting plants makes me happy...but then so does the occasional social drink and going out to a good gig and dinner with friends from time to time. I would consider myself respectful to others ,easy to get along with and very clean and tidy. Though i'am quite a private person, i get along with all walks of life. Also will be looking for a casual job 2 days or 3 nights a week.. Please feel free to get in touch if you'd like to know more.

Jake

Looking in: Hillside, Taylors Lakes, Moonee Ponds, Coburg, Essendon, Sydenham, Brunswick, Caroline Springs

My names Jake I'm 33 years old. I'm originally from NSW. I work in community services and I've been living in Melbourne for the past 9 years. I'm looking for a place to live from the 5th of August to the 15th of September. $150-180. Looking for something more permanent from the 6th of October I don't smoke, do drugs, I drink occasionally and I'm definitely not a party animal. I'm clean and very house proud. Looking for a furnished room but if not I can bring my own bed. Internet and if bills can be included in rent that would be great. I enjoy the simple things in life but to me they mean everything. Family, friends, nature and food I love. I'm also gay so living with gay friendly people is a must. Cheers Jake

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. I have two cats, Elye and Monk, they are beautiful and pleasant to be around, the least pushy, most visibly appreciative cats. Elye- Showed up on my friends door at 4 weeks old, tiny with huge globes for eyes that he never seemed to grow into. Loves to be spoken to and always knows when you're speaking about him. He is very sociable, loves to snuggle and is still very much a kitten, despite him being 2 years. Monk- Only still a little one, Monkey is full of energy. He has a very strange persona, skittish but brave? The reason his name is Monkey? He makes these little high gurgling noises much like his brother but he hardly ever meows. Everyone falls in love with this duo. Funnily enough even people that don't usually like cats become fond of them, they're just so unique and random. 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 :)

Looking in: Footscray, Thornbury, Brunswick West, Flemington, Northcote, Alphington, Kensington, Coburg, Prahran, South Yarra, Windsor, Middle Park, Richmond, Fitzroy North, Fitzroy, Abbotsford, Carlton, Brunswick, Brunswick East, Collingwood

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.

Beth

Looking in: Coburg

I'm very neat and tidy (which is the main reason that things are not working out with current housemates, so would prefer someone like-minded). I generally keep to myself but like to interact with housemates to keep things comfortable. I'm very laid back and easy going, working part-time (mainly during the day but occasionally in the afternoon/evenings). I'm a creative type, very musical, enjoy painting/drawing, sewing, etc. I'm relatively new to Melbourne, but have settled in comfortably. Can only commit to accommodation for about 3 months as I like to regularly reassess things.

Looking in: Brunswick, Coburg, Thornbury, Preston

Hello - I'm Catriona, 27 yo, Female, working full-time near the airport (never know what to write in these things!)... I like to think myself as a social go getter. Yet at the same time, I am also happy to do my own thing. I work full time, which means I usually like to kick back during the week. However, I am also partial to impromptu BBQ's and a cheeky wine every now and then. I also have great fun trying to convince myself that I'm a health enthusiast; enjoy running... My current housemate is sadly looking to move a little too far for my work commute. So sadly, this means that we will need to part ways. Keen to find somewhere close to the Thornbury area (I just love it). Would be happy to do a team up, or come and check out a space. I come with a few house hold items, though not much. A hammock, and a BBQ - because, really, what else do you need? Look forward to hearing from you.

Marlène Habib

Looking in: Fitzroy North, Fairfield, Northcote, Fitzroy, Coburg, Brunswick West, Brunswick East, Brunswick

34 years old and work as a freelance photographer and an arts therapist. At the moment, I work from home about 3 days a week (editing and planning) and 2-3 days out on location. I'm into sharing meals, wine, heart to heart chats and all that good stuff to get to know the people I'm living with. I value people and open communication. I would like to live in a multi cultural home or with open minded people that are open to cultural differences, after all diversity is the spice of life. I'm interested in permaculture, but yet to gain the skills, willing to put the hours into the garden to get my thumbs green. I'm quirky and creative. I enjoy gatherings and being social and every now and again I'll go off on a silent retreat when I need a little zen time and clarity. I love all kinds of music from around the world. Other loves... nature, dancing (african and latin), yoga (I gotta get back on that bike ;) ), travel, movies, documentaries, food, talks that scratch the surface, acting like a kitty cat and putting on random accents. If I sound like your hommie to be, feel free to contact me :) Also, I'm looking to move by late August, but if I find a suitable place, I can move sooner. I live in the South side but much prefer the creative and diverse flow of the North folk. Marlène (aka Marz)

Holly & Jesse

Looking in: Carlton, East Melbourne, Carlton North, Fitzroy, North Melbourne, West Melbourne, Fitzroy North, Abbotsford, Coburg, Seddon, Clifton Hill, Northcote, Footscray, Yarraville

G'day, we are Holly and Jesse, and we're looking for a new fabulous place to call home. Holly is a singer/songwriter, youth engagement worker and bartender, and volunteers at Triple R. Jesse is a gardener who works labouring for the City of Whitehorse and also writes fiction and spends a large chunk of time working on his writing. Jesse is American, Holly is Australian, Holly is a vegetarian, Jesse isn't. We both love pubs, beer, books, cooking, walks, talking, seeing shows and sitting in parks. We are both genuinely happy, positive people who thrive on meeting and getting to know new legends, and although we both love going out, we both want home to be a sanctuary and definitely not just a crash pad. We're currently in a pretty unique situation - we've been between renting temporarily with friends and long-term Airbnb stays, although we both have stable, steady work. Holly also regularly travels outside of Melbourne on tour. Jesse's current visa is up just before Christmas, so we're planning to leg it back to California at that time. It would be so lovely to find the perfect home in Melbourne for the next 5 months. Looking forward to meeting some great people here!
