Luke

Looking for some cool peeps to live with! Work in Civic so inner North would be great, but I'm fairly flexible. :) About me: - Moved the Canberra from Brisbane in August - INTJ - Tidy, but not OCD clean - Reliable with bills etc - Bearded - Chill AF - Not adverse to a couple of wines after work (and a few more on weekends) Who I’m looking to live with: - Preferably more than just one other person. But I don't mind living with just one person either. - People who are fun - People who are relaxed - People who are open to hanging out occasionally Place I’m looking for: - Location wise I’m looking at Civic, Inner North and anywhere close to Civic really. - Furnished (I’ve only got my own bedroom furniture as well as some kitchen stuff) - Heating/cooling (preferable) - Own bathroom (preferable) - Parking (preferable) - Built in wardrobe (preferable) - Internet Access (MUST) I'm pretty flexible around the place I live so if I sound like someone you could live with, and your place sounds perfect for me, let me know! The bf usually sleeps over a few nights a week so you'd need to be cool with that too 🏳️‍🌈 :) Cheers Luke

Glenn & Jason

Looking in: Reid, Turner, Acton, Lyneham, Ainslie, Franklin, Gungahlin, Dickson, Downer, Harrison, Palmerston, Braddon

I want to rewrite this better.. but for now: I currently work in the offensive side of IT security, previously been in the startup/entrepreneur space, and am a polyglot developer by trade. I try to balance my tech side with getting out there and enjoying the finer sides of life, be that camping at a doof with friends, snowboarding, skydiving, scuba diving, trampolining, bouldering, etc. I have such a wide array of interests it's hard to list in a little box here. Open minded and pretty easy going with most things, evenings could equally be spent binging an interesting series as they could be philosophical discussions or hacking on some new project idea. Really looking for a perfect fit kind of housemate, and would sooner continue renting as just 2 than add someone who doesn't fit "for the sake of it". Relatively clean, but not going to get anal about a speck of dust here and there so long as it's not impacting on health/life (and we opt for getting a cleaner in monthly to ensure it doesn't become an issue, as it tends to end up in so many share houses). I follow a paleo'ish/bulletproof lifestyle, pretty but focus on health/wellness/performance, so someone that fits those ideals would be awesome. Interested in finding cool people on a similar wavelength of personal growth, development, fun and freedom; and realising that maybe the right fit is going to be further outside of our current circles. Jason's a teacher. Will probably get him to write some stuff for here later. If any of this piques your interest, reach out and let's chat, see if there is a match :)

Hannah

Looking in: Lyneham, Ainslie, Dickson, Downer, Turner, O'Connor

Full time barista and interior design student. I'm super easy going, love to wind down with a glass of wine after a long day, so someone that enjoys a bit of socialising would be nice, however I also enjoy my personal space too. I have a fair bit of furniture, so preferably i'd keep most of it... I also have a beautiful little rescue dog that would be staying with me about three nights a week, so I would need somewhere/someone that is pet friendly. I've already been looking at some two/three bedroom places mainly around O'connor area so just want some amazing people to team up with. I've been in Canberra just over five years and lived mainly in share houses.

Anthony

Looking in: Belconnen, Scullin, Campbell, Reid, Hackett, Downer, Turner, Lyneham, Ainslie, Braddon, Watson, Dickson, O'Connor

I'm an experienced house-sharer, considerate of others, clean, respectful, social / independent. I run my own Mac support business & have a part time retail gig which keeps me busy and financially secure. Creative and inquisitive soul... Enjoy the outdoors, travelling, going on hikes, photography, nature, reading, seeing live music, catching up with friends, music festivals, eating (fairly) healthy. Seeking some funky folk to share with. Normally i'd start my own share house but this rental market is crazy. I'm looking for : inner north suburb preferably. Large room with space for queen bed, desk, bookshelf. Prefer a nice, relaxed and reasonably quiet (ie: non party till 4am every night) household where one can unwind and rest and sleep without interruption. Enjoy reading and listening to music, watching TV some nights (ABC / SBS / Netflix), playing acoustic guitar, tinkering around with creative musical projects, sharing a meal now and then, etc... Home Life : I enjoy social time when living with others but also value my own space. I like to keep things fairly clean, but i'm not a clean freak. Most of my friends are aged in their 30s so sharing around that age group would suit. If you think we'd be a good fit get in touch! Cheers Anthony.

Alice & Clancy

Looking in: Hackett, Lyneham, Ainslie, Campbell, Braddon, Dickson, Downer, Turner, O'Connor

Hello! We are Clancy and Alice, a 25 year old queer-friendly couple from rural Australia who have been studying in Melbourne and traveling overseas the past 7 years. Since making a new life for ourselves in the Byron area, we’ve both been offered internships in Canberra from July 17 until August 18 – Alice at the National Centre for Indigenous Studies at ANU, and Clancy at the Green Institute. Having received this very exciting news, we’re now looking for a winter home! We’ve both lived in share houses a lot throughout Melbourne and Byron and enjoy communal spaces, interesting conversations, gardening, cooking feasts (we’re both plant based) reading, swimming, surfing and all other adventures. We aren’t massive party animals but do enjoy live music, dancing and night time antics, and also having people over. Being environmentally conscious and politically aware is something that's important for us, as is open communication and passion for all the great things in life! We can be flexible with dates (we have a place to stay if these dates don’t match up exactly) and are budgeting up to $300per week for a room. If this sounds like you, or you know someone who might have some extra space, we’d love to get in touch – just message us some details and we’ll give you a call. Hope to hear from you soon!

Alternatively, if you have a friendly house with a bedroom than needs filling, please let me know! I'd be happy to live with 1-3 other people, and live anywhere from inner north to weston creek or woden, or queanbeyan. I also have a toilet trained boyfriend who will visit.
