Saskia

Looking in: Thornbury, Fitzroy North, Carlton North, Brunswick, Princes Hill, Northcote, Carlton, Fitzroy, Brunswick East, Collingwood

Hello! I'm a student looking for somewhere to live ASAP! but im happy to wait a bit for the right place. 6-12 month lease is ideal, happy to sign or not :) I'm 21, born in Scotland but I've moved around a bit and have lived in Australia before. I study Politics and Sociology in Birmingham (England) and I'm coming to Melbourne for 1 year as part of my degree. I'm excited for amazing food, gigs and the general artsy vibes of melbourne!! I try to keep up some creative stuff outside of uni, it'd be cool to live with people also into that sort of thing, I'm happy to live with people who practice instruments etc. I'm vegan but relaxed about it, I don't mind living with meat eaters. I would prefer to not live with conservatives. I've lived in sharehouses before and I know to clean up after myself and respect other's space and belongings. I'm fine with cleaning bathrooms etc and helping out with grosser stuff that needs to be done, and I changed a kitchen tap by myself once, essential skill in a new housemate imo. I would love to live in a friendly house that likes to hang out together a bit, like most people I love + value alone time but I also love + value my friends and it'd be great to live with mates!! 420 friendly please (outside of course)

Taymour

Looking in: Coburg, Brunswick, Wolli Creek, Waterloo, Zetland, Mascot, Alexandria

Hi! I work full time as a Claims Coordinator for a telecommunications company. I'm currently in between both Sydney and Melbourne; work is in Melbourne but I love Sydney! Outside of work I volunteer for the Rural Fire Service and enjoy going to the UFC gym, travelling as often as I can and getting involved in outdoor activities such as hiking. Being originally from Melbourne I'm also an avid AFL follower. I'm easy going and sociable. I don't drink or smoke and like to keep my surroundings clean.

Ashton

Looking in: Fairfield, Northcote, Coburg, Thornbury, Brunswick

Hello, Ashton's the name they gave me, born 1989 making me 27 years of age. I am a hard working, fully employed Machinist/Setout Coordinator working in the commercial interior industry. Generally a 7 - 3:30 Monday to Friday gig with the occasional weekend. So I've got my side of the bills covered. Generally I keep busy either playing sport or hitting the F45 circuits. Pretty much 5-6 days a week. I can motivate if your wanting a gym partner. When I do have a chance to slow down, I'm always up for a casual beer, domination of the old board game or some social bonding. Being new to Melbourne it would be nice to make some friends instead of the occasional greeting to the old housemate in the other room. Having done the house share thing for some time, I pull my weight around the house, clean up after myself and generally respect others needs for cleanliness and space.

Caressa

Looking in: Abbotsford, Fairfield, Carlton, East Melbourne, Carlton North, Fitzroy, Southbank, Richmond, Collingwood, North Melbourne, Docklands

I am Registered Nurse working in a hospital in Fitzroy, Victoria. I graduated in Melbourne, Australia and was born in the Philippines. I would like to have a long-term rent in an accommodation. I always clean my place and keep things in order. I am polite, accommodating and friendly lady. I would usually read books and watch movies quietly in my room. When I am outside the house, I go to the gym and volunteer in the Australian Red Cross and other community services. I like watching sports especially FIFA World Cup and USA NBA. If you prefer a quiet and a non-party place, I can do that. If you want parties occasionally, I am perfectly fine with that. I am a non-smoker but I respect smoker housemates. I can provide you with a copy of my passport, Registered Nurse license, Australian national police check and Victoria working for children's check before my inspection.

Eirena

Looking in: Kensington, Elwood, Prahran, South Yarra, Port Melbourne, Northcote, Albert Park, Williamstown, Seddon, Thornbury, Altona

Hi future houseshare, I run my own space clearing declutter business so I am very respectful of spaces and keeping them tidy. I have travelled with my work all over the world and have stayed in many airbnbs, holiday rentals, hotels as well as private homes. My friends call me the bed whisperer :) I like to use my home base as a chill zone and focus on my business. I will usually go out to see a movie or hang with friends, I don't drink or smoke or party I did all of that in my younger years. I love one to one conversations and not into small talk, in fact I like to keep to myself mostly. Not in an weird way locked in my room, more about meditating and working, so I like to be free of distractions. I love to cook and love watching the odd rubbish tv show occasionally. I have an easy light personality so not into drama or heavy negative energies. Spontaneous dancing may occur. I practice Qigong and Kundalini Yoga and will finish my Lomi Lomi Massage Training at the end of this year in Hawaii. I love to laugh and believe everyone deserves to be respected and listened to. Because my business is about CLARITY, I like to discuss and clarify what is expected in the domestic running of the house, so that there is no room for confusion. It's also important to be aware of boundaries. Really look forward to finding a space that feels like "home" .... and chatting with you soon Thanks Eirena ( aka ell ) PS Some things that are important on my list. -NBN Internet is very necessary for my work -I run my own business, so my hours vary, so when you ask full time and mean the conventional 9 t0 5- that's not me. -I really would like a place with a bath tub - Love love love gardens, so prefer a house to an apartment

William

Looking in: Kingsbury, Coburg, Thornbury, Preston, Thomastown, Reservoir

Hi guys, Thanks for checking out. Wonder if anyone are keen to house hunt with me or have a large room for rent? Both my housemate and I are renting and sharing a 2 BR unit for the past 7 yrs in reservoir. Love my room size but We were given notice to vacate the unit by 13/9/17 due to owner wants to renovate his property (tile the floors, renovate the bathroom, car garage, etc). My housemate has already secured accommodation to move in his sis's place while i'm still looking for a place. We have kept the unit about the same condition as when we moved in 7 yrs ago. So can say we are good tenants. About myself- 39 yrs old male (don't drink or smoke) Self employed working professional (mostly out working or just out) easy to get along type Basically just like everyone else. We do our own thing, pay our rent and bills on time. Current rent I pay - $160/w + share bills (wouldn't mind to pay a bit more for the right place). An ideal if you have just moved in a 2 BR empty house/unit. I can help chip in for the fridge, washing machine, sofa etc. Prefer to have a garage/car port or be able to park on driveway as I've over $1000 worth of stock in my car boot. (I m onsite computer technician). Thanks

Jimmy

Looking in: Fitzroy, South Melbourne, Coburg, Richmond, Brunswick

Hi! I am Jimmy, from Spain. I have been traveling for the past 4 years, working for an Australian travelling company (Contiki) and exploring every continent by myself, but now it's time to move to Australia! I am here to study (audio engineering), but I have to work too to be able to comfortably support myself. The diploma is 7 months, so that would be my minimum stay, but I might stay a couple of months more.. it depends! I love music, I love people and I love outdoor activities. I am active, positive, super easy going, honest, real. I am almost native in english so no communication problems. I am responsible and old enough (29 years old) to know what respect and social behaviour is, and I expect the same in return. I am looking for modern, fully furbished accomodation, with not more than 2-3 people to share the flat with, not far from public transport and with aircon/heater in the rooms! If you would like to know anything else about me, don't bother asking!
