Georgie: I'm studying at RMIT full-time doing mechanical engineering. I've just started working casually. I'm never really to sure how to describe myself. I like to think that I'm easy to get along with. Since I'm still new to melbourne (moved over from perth a month ago) I'm still trying to establish myself here. I'm pretty laid back, like to keep things relaxed although I like going out over the weekend. I have a 9 week old black lab named Apollo, I haven't been able to pick her up yet since I'm still trying to break my current lease.

Hi my name is Sara, 27 and have recently moved from Brisbane and currently staying with a family friend until i can find a place of my own. I am looking to rent out an unfurnished room as i have my own belongings, in the areas i have listed and nearby. i believe North of Melbourne if i am not mistaken. About me: I work full time Mon-Fri in North Melbourne for a tax accounting firm, I go to gym most nights straight after work. I am very easy going, love to have a chat but also respect everyones privacy as i expect in return :). I'm not being cliche when i say i am a clean and tidy person and clean up after myself as I even like to clean up midst cooking etc (saves me doing it later). I like to have an occasional wine on some weekends and yes unfortunately I am a smoker but very respectful around others in regards to this and coming from Brisbane where smoking is pretty much taboo, you will not have an issue regarding my filthy habit :) Usually I'm quite busy so might not be home most times. I also have a partner who would come over some nights a week and I go to his so I would like that flexibility for him to stay a couple of nights. Looking preferably for an ensuite/own bathroom and can be flexible on my rent budget but still happy to have a bedroom for my budget depending on the place/location. If you like what you see please contact me on here as i check regularly or contact me on my mobile if you would like to discuss further. Look forward to hearing from you. Sara

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 (easy to laugh) trying to find room size (4.47m x3.05m include BIR) to fit my furnitures so you know i don't throw them in the bin 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 so i don't have to worry about my $1000 worth of stock in my car boot. (I fix computers onsite that means you get free computer service from me haha). Thanks

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.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 :)

Currently living in Bendigo but recently started working in the city and will be working in melbourne for at least the next 18 months (Government). I work shift work and will not be home most public holidays or weekends. A few of my hobbies include traveling, heading to the beach, camping/motorbike riding,SPORT, and the occasional drink at the local waterhole. Come summer you will find me on the lake wakeboarding most weekends that i get off (new housemate can obviously come and join in). Also don't mind occasionally just sitting back at home and catching up on anything netflix. I am a clean person who has lived with others in the past so i have a good idea of the unwritten rules needed to live with others. looking forward to meeting new people! 😊

We are a family relocating to Melbourne from Queensland in September and are looking for a place to set up while we get our new life here sorted. We are extremely flexible with our arrangements and are excellent tenants - pay the rent on time, clean, and keep to ourselves. Our 3 year old is well behaved and cosleeps with us, thus will not require her own bed so we are happy with a 1 bedroom/studio option but will require it furnished. As I say we are flexible in terms of where to stay (happy with a 45 min commute to CBD for my husband's work), how long...I would just like to arrange a place before we set off so we can arrive and be settled right away. I'm happy to answer any and all questions about us, please just ask!

Hi There. :) I'm soon to be homeless as my lease runs out at my current property. I am a small business owner/freelancer, seeking a place with a decent sized bedroom, study/office and lounge. I've been living by myself in a large townhouse up until now so have no problems paying rent, but keen to downsize, or share with someone (maybe in a similar situation/creative/freelancer type). Love having a beer or dinner with housemates, but also need my own space and respect others. I'm into music, guitar, photography, movies, bike riding, snowboarding, and am fairly easy going. Not much phases me, just looking to save a bit on rent and find a new place. Very clean, respectful and responsible. Open to sharing, teaming up, or living alone as long as I have space for my bed, and my desk.

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.

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.

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.
