Kate

Looking in: Fitzroy North, Preston, Abbotsford, Fairfield, Kew, Northcote, Fitzroy, Thornbury, Brunswick, Ivanhoe, Collingwood

My name is Kate - I'm 35, a writer and therapist, as well as homely creative and foodie type with a penchant for good whole food and organic cooking. Currently I work 35 hours a week including Saturdays, some Sundays and one late night. I am financial, rent and bill reliable, spacially aware, friendly, v.open minded and socially and emotionally intelligent. I love music, art, dancing - dancing in the kitchen while cooking and listening to music! I am also a birth worker (doula), a singer and I practice tantra. I am a seasoned housemate and great communicator and like to think that I'm a pretty ace all-rounder when it comes to making it work. I am looking for a grounded, earth and human friendly home with a bath and veg patch (or patio for pots?) I can share with other similarly minded and hearted human beings, ideally with others who are 28 + and who enjoy an active, creative and clean-living lifestyle. Ideally I'd love to live with other creatives who appreciate and value a relaxed home environment that is supportive of our various projects and endeavours, however am really open minded and the main need for me is respect, maturity, sincerity and reliability in the people I share a home with. Because of the nature of my work, I enjoy my home as a sanctuary of nurture, rest, creativity and peace, rather than a super-social party house, and a space where the TV is not the central focus. I am looking for a large and light filled room in such a home. I'd prefer a house rather than an apartment, however am totes open to considering otherwise for the right location and peeps. Please let me know if you are keen and I'd love to swing by at a mutually suitable time. If you'd like to chat more please do not hesitate to contact me. Warmly, Kate.

Sagar

Looking in: Heidelberg Heights, Northcote, Brunswick, Preston, Thornbury

Heyya! I am Sagar (male ,35) of Indian origin but living in Melbourne from last 15 years. I am a professional working full time in IT industry. I am very neat and tidy person and like my surroundings to be the same. I can be a good in-house handyman for things need fixing or fine tuning. I am a smoker but never inside the house and trying to cut down and quit soon. Not a chatter box but would always love a chat over cuppa or a beer. My friends might complaint that I crack them up with my humour even when they were supposed to act grumpy!! I am a single parent of 5 year old boy. He is usually with me over the weekends and occasionally during the week. He will start school next year in far North suburb and hence need to get a place a bit closer to cut down on commute times. We are very happy go lucky kinda people and love to play outdoors and spend time out and about specially at the beach or a park. We would be occupied within ourselves but occasionally wouldn't mind sharing a laugh or playing a game or two with everyone in house. He is a people's person you see! I am looking to move around late October early November and happy to buy furniture or any other stuff if needed so no issues. About the length of stay, currently for around 4-6 months and then might extend but we can negotiate that. If you have any spare room for offer then would love to hear from you. Thanks. Regards, Sagar

Ola! I'm looking for a home for myself and my little ginger kitty mate. I would prefer to find someone/someones and look for a new place together but would also be happy joining a chill existing sharehouse :) I'm LGBTI+ friendly, 420 friendly and just all round friendly. Bit of a leftie. All the boring stuff: I'm sharehouse trained, clean/tidy without being a neat freak, social but will kindly fuck off to leave you to do your own thing. Less boring stuff: Always happy for a beer or a rum, a decent cheese platter is life, movie and TV show enthusiast (currently aboard the Rick and Morty train), always looking for thrift shop and arts and crafts buddies. My cats name is Danger. He's poop box trained so no issue there. He only turns one in November so he's still fun.

Rebecca

Looking in: Coburg, Essendon, Saint Kilda, Brunswick West, Brunswick East, Keilor, Brunswick, Pascoe Vale

Hi everyone! My name is Rebecca, commonly known as Bec. I'm a full time nursing student. I'm friendly, considerate and tidy. I'd love to get into a house with other students/professionals, friendly and easy going folks who are keen to have the odd glass )or bottle) of wine and a laugh. I enjoy cooking from time to time and I like going out for dinner and socialising on the weekends, catching up with friends and family etc. I'm fairly easy going and enjoy some quiet nights in with a DVD marathon or a Netflix session or board games with friends. My cat, Bucky, is a quiet, timid little boy and you would more likely notice a stuffed animal more as he is so timid of new people. I would prefer accommodation where I could have him, but if not possible he will be living with my mum.

Looking in: Fairfield, Northcote, Thornbury, Ivanhoe

Hello, I'm Kelly! I'm a 32 year old female. I've just returned from an 18-month adventure living in Scotland/travelling through Europe, and now I'm on the hunt to find a relaxed home to share with friendly people. I start back at my full time position in the allied health field in three weeks, so you can be assured that I have an income and I'm good at being an adult. In my spare time I enjoy travelling, hiking, going to the ballet, enjoying the amazing food on offer in Melbourne, and spending a small fortune on artisan chocolate ;) I consider myself to be a very open-minded, respectful and tidy person. I love to socialise but I also relish time to myself too. I'm not a party animal. I'm looking for a relaxed home environment with people who like to have a chat and share the meal at times, but have their own thing going on and respect the need for space too. I have a gorgeous 13 year old fur-baby (cat) named Jasper. He's exceptionally lazy and loves nothing more than to sleep in the sun all day, so he's really low maintenance! If you think I'd be a good fit, I'd love to hear from you to make a time meet. Cheers, Kelly

I have a goofy sense of humor, appreciate a good coffee or beer, and am a lover of art, drawing, indie games, computer science and mathematics. I have a bed, desk, and a bookcase of books, so I'll be on the lookout for an unfurnished room.

Hello, here's a little about me: I've lived in Melbourne most of life but am originally from Perth. Lived in student share-houses for a few years and looking for a more homely vibe now! I currently manage a bar in the Southbank Arts Precinct and I also play bass in a couple of bands. My educational background is in Music, Philosophy and Psychology. I'm applying for my Masters in Music Therapy at the moment so somewhere I can feel comfortable studying would be ideal :) In my spare time I like to read, meditate, write, walk, catch up with friends, play, write and listen to music, garden and learn about anything and everything I don't yet know. I'm very structured in my routine, I'm vegan mostly for health reasons but completely non-judgemental about other's diets, I get up early and I'm a non-drinker and non-smoker. Looking for a place with clean, like-minded people who I can learn and grow with and who enjoy co-existing and creating a shared space! On days off I like to try and get out of the city and explore nature. I have a little black cat named Pepper who has lived in a few different places with me over her 3 years and always settles in to new environments very quickly. She's a sweetheart and has shared spaces with other cats and dogs without issue. Ideally I'm looking for a place with some private space for me to work in, as spend a lot of time tinkering and studying and getting lost in thought. A granny flat I could harness, a small spare room or a large bedroom I can section off would be perfect! If you work 9 - 5 that's a bonus as I spend my days working at home. Looking to live with one or two other people max, and if you're interested in applying for a lease together I'm up for that too! Also been looking at 1 bedroom apartments but it's difficult to find a a place that's ok with a cat :(

I'm a 24 year old admitted lawyer who is currently working at the Fair Work Commission (please don't hold either of those things against me!). I'm looking for a place with one or two friendly people who I can hang out with but who also have their own things going on. I'm very friendly and usually up for a chat most nights. I enjoy being social and having people around, although on weeknights I prefer to keep it a bit more chill. I have recently received a beautiful vegetarian cookbook which I'm super keen to try out (although still very partial to a good steak). I love animals so am more than happy to live with any pets. I would prefer to live with flat mates who are similarly working full time. If all of this sounds good feel free to shoot me a message, I'd love to be a part of making a share house a home!

Hello! I'm Jol, a 24yo Graphic Designer working full time at a Digital Marketing Agency. I love all things creative and in my spare time I cook, visit markets, Netflix binge and often working on various photography projects.

Somewhere clean, quiet, safe and with like minded people. Possibly a home that is environmentally conscious, and maybe with a nice herb and veggie garden to tend to - though not essential. Bad puns guaranteed!

I am Eduardo, 26yo, part time employed, barista Jr, I.T. student, cooker love, passionate for Melbourne's parks and Laneways. I'm easy going guy, who loves cooking for mates, always up for beer, wine, cachaça (have you tried it?) and to share good times talking and laughing. I'm sociable, friendly and happy to spend time with my mates but I know how to respect their space and I have an independent life as well. During my free time, I am always walking around Melbourne knowing this lovely city. I like traveling (I'm planning to travel for South Asia, up to that? it would be amazing to find a traveling partner). I'm not a party animal but I'm not out to occasionally small party or hang out to a night club. Although I do not make my bed, I keep the house tidy and clean, principally kitchen and bathroom, I am responsible with house tasks, also I use to take shower every day (same in freezing days), brush teeth, wash my cloths, keep the toilet seat down... I am looking for a place which I can call home for long time. I would like to move in the last week of September, but I can be flexible about that. If I sound good to you and your flats please, text me and we will set up time to meet each other.

Hi, I'm a 29 year old construction supervisor moving down from QLD for a project. Initially it's 2-3 months (likely longer) so I'm looking for a place to stay short term. I'll be doing 10+ hour days so I won't be around a whole lot and will need to be close to the city/train station. I'm looking for some relaxed people to live with while I'm there. I'm easygoing, enjoy a beer and a chat. Cheers, Anthony
