Andrew

Looking in: Macquarie, Ainslie, Florey, Bruce, Griffith, Kaleen, Reid, Manuka, Deakin, Kingston, Barton, Canberra, Turner, Dickson, Page, Belconnen, Lyneham, O'Connor, Braddon

I am looking for a room. I am a middle aged man who is a full time self-published writer and performer. I spend most of my days writing (plus admin and marketing my books) in cafes. I have been a counsellor, cleaner and public servant. I am 'spiritually' minded, for want of a better word. I have been either house-sitting or renting for a few years after the end of a long relationship. The place I was sold. I have temporary accommodation thanks to a lovely friend. I like to meditate, go out to places like The Front Cafe or Smiths, art openings and other things around town. I have a lot of friends of different ages. I like reading and going into the bush and I can cook well. I cannot drive as I have a genetic eye disorder but my brain seems to compensate a lot; so other than driving I am quite functional. I am pretty clean and tidy. I can pretty much talk about anything and I am quite 'chilled.' Also, I have plenty in my bank account to pay rent with, just not enough to buy; I am also on the visual disability pension Look forward to hearing from you. Thanks.

Dan

Looking in: Narrabundah, Garran, Curtin, Red Hill, Deakin, O'Malley, Lyons, Fyshwick, Kingston, Farrer, Forrest, Mitchell, Watson, O'Connor, Lyneham, Downer, Hackett, Dickson, Ainslie, Braddon

Full time Communications/IT/Security guy, and part time long distance uni student, working from home as an advance staff member for my company, before a new office is organised. I'm quiet and independent, but more than happy to socialise when housemates want to. Open minded and accepting of all walks of life. If there's animals, especially a dog or two, I'm a very happy camper. I've lived in 3 share houses in Perth, since 2010, with the same group of people. They were complete strangers to begin with, but have since become very close friends, so I know the ropes of living with other people. Very much a neat and tidy person, especially in shared spaces - no point in creating hassles when it's so easy to keep things clean. Couldn't really care less about smoking (i.e I don't smoke, but don't care if others do), same goes for partying, unless there's a complete consensus with all other housemates. I'm good with a pair of gloves, a spade and watering can. Same goes for power tools, and generally fix most things myself, when the need arises. More than happy to allow the professionals/landlords to do this instead though. If you've got issues with a computers, or even basic motoring/bike stuff, I'm pretty good with that stuff too. Basically a jack of many trades and willing to use these skills. During down time, I love a good bourbon/cider/beer and BBQ, pretty good at marinating a bunch of different types of meat too. Throw some good 90's music, or anything that's been played on Triple J for the last 20 years, and I'm pretty happy. Back in WA, I loved throwing myself and my mountain bike down a trail. I enjoy going to the gym, I'm no crazy junky, but I do enjoy keeping myself fit. I own an X-Trail, that doesn't exactly go overly fast, but get's me out and about into bush land, where camping is very much desired. Drop us a bell, and let me know what's going :)

Natalie

1.46 km from Deakin

Looking in: Reid, Hackett, Campbell, Downer, Dickson, Watson, O'Connor, Turner, Ainslie, Narrabundah, Forrest, Manuka, Yarralumla, Kingston, Red Hill, Griffith

My name's Natalie. I'm a 25 year old single female. I currently work in inner north in the health and welfare industry. I graduated ANU in psychology a few years back. I'm a vegan, which in a share house setting generally translates to me buying my own food and cooking my own meals. I am happy living in a non-vegan house and respect everyone's right to eat what they want. As a housemate I really value communication, transparency, honesty and equality. I like having a lot of my own me time: meditating, writing, doing Tai Chi and reading. I also love bush walking particularly around Namadgi and would love to get into kayaking more. On the weekends I often go to food/farmers markets and different artsy/cultural events in Canberra. I value having chats and socialising. I would not want a share house where individuals are isolated entities hiding in their bedrooms. I want to live in a house where people are happy to sit around the communal areas and feel comfortable with themselves and each other. As a housemate I am honest, communicative, I don't do drama or power plays, and you know where you stand with me. I am gentle and warm and a little bit quirky in my sense of humour. I like to keep the house tidy but I'm not someone who keeps the place overly pristine. I also love baking and cooking and am happy to share. I am happy living with both males and females. I would like to live in a house or duplex. I would not be up for an apartment or townhouse. If the environment allows I would love to have a veggie garden. I would be super happy living in a house which has a pet. I do not have a pet. I love a homely house and really value it having character and warmth (both metaphorically and literally). I am looking for a stable home and ideally hoping to settle for a while. As such I would like to move into a house which is settled and not a fly in fly out vibe. I have my own furniture for my bedroom meaning I would require my room to be unfurnished. Additionally I have a few small things such as little side tables which I would like to put in the main part of the house if suitable. Currently I am flexible with move in date but need to allow time to notify my current landlord upon finding a suitable place. Before moving into a house I wish to catch up several times. I feel that living with other people is a very personal thing and value spending time getting clear as to if we would be compatible. I would wish for those who I am living with to also value this.

Looking in: Queanbeyan East, Queanbeyan West, Lyneham, Queanbeyan, Kambah, Yarralumla

Very clean. Minimalist. Minimal furnishings inside the home. Need space to think, live and breathe. Enjoy a good conversation with the right people. Always use earphones at home on my laptop to allow others to focus on their own work quietly. I need the same in return. Early bird, asleep by 10pm and up at 5 - 6am. Quiet at night time in the home is extremely important to me after 10:30pm. I am flexible with my housemates with other requests, but my privacy and need for quiet time to do my Teaching work, research and rest in a quiet environment after a long day is extremely important to me. For fun in my spare time I enjoy reading, researching, playing chess and keeping fit. Ideally would like to share with just one male professional housemate at least 30+ years of age, very clean and quiet who I connect well with in some way. I get along with: - Introverted people. - Who keep their home immaculately clean, quiet and very empty (zero to minimal furniture). - Extreme minimalist like a Hindu Temple. I am willing to pay a little extra ($50 per week extra rent), for these above conditions if we click. Please do not waste my time or yours if you do not match this criteria. Thank you. Ideally happy to stay for up to 9 months on a contract if we click.

After 5 years of uni and two degrees I've landed a graduate job (private sector) however its on the other side of the country! So I'm moving to our great nation's capital from Perth at the end of June/early July and need somewhere to live! my budget is around $200-250 per week, less would be preferable and I'd consider more if it includes bills. I've lived out of home for the past 2.5 years so am very used to sharing space with others. I've very house proud and like to have the place looking neat and nicely decorated. I'm coming over with a car and a suitcase so a place with some furnishings is preferable but not essential I can buy whatever I need. I have a lot of clothes and shoes so need a decent wardrobe and probably room for a tall boy and queen bed. I am allergic to cats so thats a no-go, dogs are fine! I don't know a lot of people in Canberra so it is important to me that I get along with those I am living with and my new housemate(s) will be keen to hang out, explore and drink with me. I'm super active, like to run and generally be pretty healthy, I cook a bit too. I like to be social outside the house on the weekends, going for brunch, shopping and other girl stuff. I also like to binge watch tv (OITNB, Rick & Morty, Jane the Virgin, How to get away with murder, the Mindy project, New Girl, Suits etc) I don't watch a lot of movies but when I do they are easy watching chick flicks, rom coms or will Farrell/Seth Rogan type comedy. Likes: chocolate wine cheese a good pub feed eating sleeping being organised not being hungover dogs Dislikes: bugs people asking me to repeat myself then interrupting me after two words with the answer to my question mushrooms being late If you feel I may fit into your household please let me know! and keep in mind I cant move until 30 June

Rashmi

Looking in: Forrest, Manuka, Griffith, Barton, Kingston

Hi there, My name is Rashmi and I'm a 26 year old public servant working in the Parliamentary triangle. I'm looking to move into an existing share house, or to start a new lease with another awesome individual. I've been living in Canberra for 2 years, but am originally from Melbourne. I've been share housing for quite some time and consider myself really clean and tidy, respectful and very easy going. I'm a self-proclaimed foodie and absolutely love making food for my housemates and hosting dinner parties. I'm also pretty active and do enjoy checking out the beautiful scenery around Canberra. Coming from Melbourne, I'm often away on the weekend, so you would probably have the apartment to yourself a lot. Unfortunately I don't have any furniture besides that in my bedroom, so I would be looking to start a new lease with someone who has quite a few things, but would happily also purchase furniture if I can find the right fit in housemate. I'm looking for someone with a similar mindset, is fun, likes to have a glass of wine here and there and wouldn't mind having some Netflix binge sessions ;) My lease is up on the 12th of May, so am pretty keeeeeen to get the ball rolling. Please contact me and we can catch up for a coffee or glass of wine. Cheers :)
