Hello! I'm a public servant (originally from Melbourne) looking for a nice chilled share house in inner south. I've been in Canberra since the start of the year, and have lived in shared houses for the past four years. I'm really easy-going, efficient at chores around the house, love a wine and a chat, but also appreciate individual quiet time. Super happy to answer any of your questions :)

Mark

Looking in: Deakin

My name is Mark, Great to meet you! My Name is Mark. I’m moving down to Canberra from Sydney where I have been living for the last 12 years, I’m originally Irish, now Australian , so I hope you guys like a light Irish accent. I also have a good dog, a little cavoodle, but he will be staying in Sydney and not moving down with me I’m happy to discuss more over the phone, and hear your answers also to make sure we are all on the same page. 1. What makes an ideal housemate? For me there is no ideal housemate as everyone is unique and brings a cool new attribute to sharing in a household. However, there are several attributes that are necessary for good cohabitation. Respect is very important, in terms of property and values. Having a shared vison of values and lifestyle in terms of being on the same want for social interaction, privacy sharing of household duties. 2. What is your favourite dish to cook? I really like this question but I find it hard to answer as in another life I was a grill chef on a food truck as well as a breakfast chef and a pancake man for events. However, my favourite disk to cook would have to be a shakshuka – a nice and spicy vegetarian egg dish from the Middle East. 3. What is your most annoying habit? I’m hard pressed to think of a habit I have that would be considered very annoying to other people as I am quite a self aware person and considerate of other so I make sure to beware of how my actions affect others. If I had to say one it would be I like to sing but I can’t carry a tune. 4. What do you think of house dinner and parties? I love house dinner and parties, its important to eat and be social together when living in a shared living enviorment! 5. What do you do in your spare time? n my spare time I enjoy exercising around hiking and martial arts and running. I also like to read and listen to podcasts. Being social is really important to me so I like to hang out with friends for a chilled drink, over a good meal or watching a cool movie. 6. What do you do for work? I’m starting a new job as a research assistant for a consultancy company. I’m moving down from Sydney for this new job. It’s my first job relating to my masters that I recently finished. Before this new job I have worked for 10 years in sales and customer service, recently with Hugo Boss. 7. If I could take a short elevator ride with anyone (past or present) who would it be? This is a difficult question, there are so many people I would like to meet. However, If I had to choose id say Robin Williams, as I loved his comedy and acting. 8. if you could describe yourself in one emoji, what would it be? I like lots of emojis, but id have to go with the , it is a classic and it represents me as I am always smiling and happy.

I have been living in Canberra for 2 years now after moving from Brisbane for a graduate role as an Electrical / ICT Engineer.

I come with a massive movie collection and a good sense of humour. I am looking for someone willing for me to move in month-to-month as I am potentially going overseas for work Q1/Q2 in 2018. Looking to move mid-January 2018

I'm a friendly person who likes hanging out with others but also enjoys being a bit of a homebody. I'm generally pretty organized and neat. I love playing video games, reading and doing some crafting. I also love pets though I have none myself so I would welcome the opportunity to be a part of a household with animals. I'll be moving up to Canberra in January 2018 from Melbourne to join an APS graduate program so I'll be working full time. I'm looking forward to exploring Canberra but also to catching up on my Netflix queue, I've been so busy this year I have lots to catch up on! I would bring my own bedroom furniture e.g. bed, side table etc. Move in date is flexible, between late January or early February. I would also be willing to consider leases between 6 months and a year.

Hi there! I'm Luella, 24 year old female. I grew up in Melbourne but am moving to Canberra for full-time work in January 2018. I will be working in Tuggeranong, but am hoping to find a place closer to the city. I've just finished an arts degree in sociology and literature. I love reading and learning new things. I'm a mostly quiet person but friendly and hoping to make some friends in Canberra. I have a long term partner who will be remaining in Melbourne for work so I will be going back to visit semi-regularly, and he will also visit occasionally on weekends. I have a lovely 13 year old cat named Mookin who, now he is older, loves to sleep and have a cuddle. He's an indoor only cat and a room with an ensuite would be ideal so his food can stay in there and he can keep to my room.

Hi my name’s Rithvik! I’m a young professional making the trek up from Melbourne to join the APS, and I’m looking for a share-house to move into by early/mid-February. I’d say I’m easy-going, sociable and always up for a chat/laugh. I believe I’m someone who is considerate of others, neat and more than willing to pull my weight around the house. In my spare time I enjoy seeing live music, watching a bit of Netflix, hanging out with friends, listening to podcasts and keeping active. Looking for a friendly and sociable house.

Hi everyone :) Like everyone else i am looking for a room to live in ;) I am positive, outgoing and always up for a chat. I am very social, but also respect and appreciate privacy. I enjoy being active, but am also up for netflix and wine. I will be in Canberra for 6 months, as i will be doing an internship at the Danish Embassy. As i am travelling from Denmark, the room would need to be furnished, as i do not have room for my bed in my suitcase ;) I would also be interested in team ups, and I have a friend (fellow intern) who will also be willing to move in, if two rooms were available. Please shoot me a message if you have anything that might be of interest :)

Looking in: Narrabundah, Deakin, Yarralumla, Kingston, Forrest, Braddon, Barton

Hello! I’m a professional that works full time, pretty tidy, can make delicious food and cocktails and am a very drama free person. I’m an outgoing introvert, so I love company, but will need my own space to chill and recharge at times. I’m well travelled and have been living in Canberra for almost 2 years, but have been away for work almost a year of that collectively. I technically don’t have any pets yet, but my sister has a cat she’s caring for that I’d love to adopt and love animals in general. So I’m definitely pro-pets. I'd prefer a non-smoking and drug-free household, and while I don’t consider myself a clean freak, would prefer to keep the communal areas pretty clean (dishes in the dishwasher and not left in the sink for days, no popcorn left in the couch... you know, the usual stuff). I’ve got enough furniture for a 2 bedroom apartment but am looking to upgrade to a house and share with people to reduce my rent spendings so I can hopefully afford a house deposit and smashed avo’s on toast. I’m looking to share with cool professionals that are respectful of space but happy to share the occasional meal and a glass of wine. UPDATE: I've teamed up with someone and we're looking for a bigger house in the inner south. We'd be looking for one or two more people to team up with. The idea would be to have a spare bedroom regardless (so a 4 bedroom house for 3 people, 5 bedrooms for 4) and have a couple of living spaces. We'd also be looking for people that would be pro-paying for a cleaner once a month and are good with both dogs and cats.

My name is Mel, I’m 28 and looking to move to Canberra in January to start a new job as a junior doctor. I don’t know many people in Canberra so it would be great to make some new friends and I’m looking forward to exploring the world’s 3rd finest city! I’m easy-going, social and neat, enjoy catching up over a wine or two and watching Netflix but also respect people's space. I enjoy good food, like being active and try to get outside as much as possible. My job will probably involve some shift work at times so I might need to sleep odd hours occasionally.. Let me know if you think I'd be a good fit for your place!

Hey flatmate hunters! I'm looking for a flatmate to team up with to find a place. I've lived in Canberra for the past couple of years, working in international affairs. Before that, I was overseas in the UK and Netherlands for a couple of years working with a human rights NGO. Don't judge me, but I'm originally from Adelaide. I'm pretty active and love being outdoors - playing sport, camping, hiking, snowboarding (not always well!). I love watching football (round and oval ball), and binging on netflix. I've just finished season 4 of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, so open to suggestions!! What I'm looking for... Ideally I'm looking to team up with one other person to find a 2 or 3 bed place in the inner south. I'm in the process of getting a Border Collie puppy, so I'm looking for somewhere with a reasonable sized courtyard/backyard which allows pets and a housemate who likes dogs. I'm willing to pay up to $300pw. I’d like to live in a house that feels more like a home, with someone who's keen to hang out and socialise, but who wont get offended when I occasionally look to chill on my own! I’ve got a few bits and pieces of furniture - though anyone in possession of a washing machine will be highly regarded! ☺ Give me a shout if you're interested in teaming up to find a flat! Cheers, Trystan
