Hi there, towards the end of Feb start of March me and a girlfriend are looking at moving to Brisbane for work/study. We are looking for someone to rent a place in Brisbane city with us, preferably female and around our age. A bit about me, I love fitness I will be commencing a personal trainers course once I make the move, I'm 19, I love having a few casual drinks, cooking and heading out for brunch as often as possible. About Niamh, she is 19, loves to cook up amazing vegan dishes, and is a qualified make-up artist. We are both very sociable and have a lot of experience living in share houses, we are eager to hear from anyone looking for a place in the areas I have listed. We hope to hear from you soon!
Hey! I'm Alix! A little bit about me; I'm 29 (30 in a few weeks), single and have no kids or pets. I'm working as a pharmacy assistant at the moment. I have had experience with share-housing before. I am clean, quiet and very reliable and I have a rental reference from property I have rented on my own in the past. I am not a party animal by any means but I love to socialise and make new friends!! At the moment, I don't have a bed so a furnished room works well for me.
I am a funny, type of person who enjoys the company of others, I can cook, and keep things clean not afraid of cleaning and keeping things tidy. When I have spare time love the outdoors and exploring new places to visit. I workout most days and studying a lot with Batchelor of Health Science in Acupuncture. I am a qualified Shiatsu Practitioner dealing with muscle aches and pains and other health issues. Looking for a quite place not wanting to be in a place that parties all the time as studies are important. I like to socialise and meet new people.
Reid and I are friendly, outgoing, adventurous people who are very easy going. We both work - Reid in design and Jess in Hospitality. Reid is American and Jess is Australian and both went to uni in the US. We are looking to make friends, meet new people, try new things while we are living in Brisbane. We are both clean, healthy, respectful, non-smokers who enjoy having fun but also enjoy our personal time alone. Please contact us if you are looking for 2 fun and reliable roommates!
A British Freelance Film & TV Production manager - working across SEQ, having plenty of experience in Share Housing - on both Student and Professional levels - looking for a Long Term accommodation. Would love to move in ASAP. Thank You very much for your time and efforts. Mihir Matkari.

I´m looking for a minimum stay of 6 months, if we get along, we can stay flatmates for a long time. Interested in single rooms with own bathroom in the region of Valley-Newstead-Teneriffe-New Farm. Best Regards!!
Hello! I am goofy 26 y.o gay professional working in Medical Imaging. Looking for a place to call home with some wonderful peeps! My current roommate has sadly moved OS to live and I have opted to not continue my current lease (which ends on the 6th of March) for a bit of a change. I am super easy going, clean ( but not OCD) and considerate. Would love to share a couple of beverages/ meals/good vibes, go for a hike or hit up the movies with the roomies. I like getting out and about, dabbling in crafts, hiking and keeping active. I do have to travel a bit between the GC + Sunshine coast for work, so I do have to be up and at 'em early fairly often. I am looking for an unfurnished room+ I do have a couple of other pieces of furniture ( fridge, chairs TV etc) that I can bring along with me. Please don't be afraid to ask any questions and I am happy to meet up for a coffee/drink. Cheers, Todd
I'm a PhD Candidate (doing my research about culinary tourism/social media and marketing). Apart from doing my PhD, I also work part-time (a few days per week) as a consulate officer in the CBD. I've lived in a lot of shared houses (both in Brisbane and Glasgow) while Bangkok and Malmö are cities where I spent my childhood. Well I like to think that I'm pretty easy to live with - however I am such a clean/neat freak and a minimalist. I really like something that's marble, woody, white or rose-gold! If the bedroom is unfurnished, that's totally fine since I have got some ideas for my Pinterest-inspired bedroom. Obsessed with all the candles, Aesop products and etc that can make the home is a place to unwind. I would say I prefer to keep the house organised and clutter-free. I mostly cook at home but as a foodie I often go out to find good places/cafes to chill out and catch up with foodies. Although I love cooking and baking at home, I do use electricity wisely so we can save money and help protect the environment :)
***Not looking for a share room*** Hi I'm Caitlin! Looking for an apartment/townhouse share with 1 or 2 other females around similar age, I work full time for a bank in the city 9-5, really sociable but also love me some alone time so I won't always be up in your grill :) I don't mind pets and love to relax with a wine and a chat at the end of the day or in the weekend with my friends/housemates. I'm too old for a party house these days and would looove to live with someone that can motivate me to do more yoga and exercise! Preferably would like somewhere central city so I can walk to work but open to South Bank, Newstead etc area. Not looking to move until beginning of March as this is when my current lease ends. I'm also pretty cool and get on easily with anyone! Thanks :)
Hi there! My name is Katina, I'm a 30 year old (look and feel about 24...but wiser) looking to find my own quiet pad or a place to share with some fun, laid back people while I focus on my career...or fly solo. Either way, I'm not actually too fussed! I work at a gym, run a small business (Minerva Candle) and also study via correspondence (3D Animation/Conceptual Art and Design). I have a very relaxed personality and a fairly dry sense of humour - I really love to laugh. I'm possibly the closest thing to a 'bro' in a girls body you'll get (I'm all about the video games, lifting at the gym, action movies, quoting Anchorman and Step Brothers, etc)...except I smell nicer, love a glass of wine, and like to do my nails on the weekly...so if you're okay with that, then awesome. I enjoy having my own space and don't fear it, but I also love human company and making friends so either way works well for me. I tend to be out and about a lot...I don't really party, but I like to visit friends and go on adventures...so don't be surprised if I ask if you want to bunjee jump or climb a cliff. I will accept if you say no, but I will likely call you a whimpy. :P I'm looking for any area near to the city (New Farm, Newstead, Ashgrove, etc) as this is closest to my work and also gives me access to the city which I enjoy wandering around (read- sniffing around for food). I really enjoy making a place a warm and inviting home so I can promise you that I'll take beautiful care of your property while I'm borrowing it from you :) You might have to be okay with smelling candles all the time...that is what I do for my business, yes you will get freebies :) If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. I'm away from the 1st Feb to 5th March, so either scramble moving before I go, or moving in after the 5th March :) - Katina
I am Brazilian and I am here to study English, and also to know more about this country. I am calm, I love to travel and make friends. I have two jobs and study at night.
I'll be moving back to Brisbane after 6 months in Sydney. I'm super clean, 100% reliable, love a balcony beer a couple of times a week, have an obscene music collection and love weekend trips to the beach/mountains/etc. I'll end it there (it's starting to sound like a tinder profile!)
Hey. I'm looking to share a flat, a single room own bath preferible. I work full time n I'm very easy going.
I am currently living on my own in a one bedroom apartment at Canterbury Towers, Fortitude Valley. I am looking to move into a two bedroom, two bathroom apartment close to the city. I have new modern furniture and am seeking a flatmate around my age (25) who has a full time job and is easy going but responsible.
Hello, my name is Hannah, I'm looking for someone to rent a place with me and my adorable chihuahua called Prince. I'm currently searching for 2 bedroom 2 bathroom apartments which allow small pets. I work full time and have uni on my days off so I'm very busy. I'm looking for someone who is respectful, friendly and tidy. I don't mind having people over and love a night out every now and then. I like to make sure my home is nice and presentable :) Look forward to hearing from you. Love Hannah
Aussie/Brit couple looking for a room in a decent share house. Like to go out at the weekends but also like to chill at home in the evening after work, gym etc. Laid back, sociable and considerate of other people. Both pretty well domesticated!
Moving from the Sunshine Coast back to Brisbane as I've started a 2/3yr Interior Design degree. I quit my FIFO job in September of 2016 to pursue something I've been putting off for far to long. Chasing dollars instead of happiness. I'm pretty chill to live with, sometimes I make cookies and drink whisky. I've enjoyed living with people previously and have had one long term roommate (6yrs - we're best friends). I like to go to the gym and train hard, there was nothing else to do when I worked FIFO so I focused on fitness and personal improvement. I recently returned from a fitness holiday in Thailand where I trained at Tiger Muay Thai (if you haven't heard of it, give it a google - best thing i've done this year). You'll know if I've had a bad day because I'll start cleaning, so I guess that's a win for whoever I end up with. Ideally a spot in the Valley would be sweet, but am happy with anything within a close proximity. I'm still looking for work but it shouldn't take long to pin down a part-time gig. I have savings to get me through this transition phase. Keep it real Anna.
Originally from NZ I'm easy-going, tidy and clean. I'm out and about most weekends and go out a couple of nights a week during the week whether that be visiting friends checking out locals bars and eateries or going to the movies. I'm a people-person and would prefer to live with flatmates who will eventually become my friends. I prefer not to have a cleaning roster and would prefer a flat where everyone just does their bit and chips in. I would also prefer my own bathroom and a need a place to park my car preferably under-cover.
I am an active guy, working in a mining company as an engineer. I do 8-6 Fly in fly out from a site near Darwin. Quite sincere about living a healthy lifestyle, and usually spend my free time studying for my part-time MBA, listening to music and hanging out with friends. I lived in Perth for 5 years.
Hi I'm Kate, I work full time at RBWH, I am easy to get along with, social and considerate.I don't have any pets but if you have a dog that's a bonus! Lol I am wanting to share an apartment on the inner north side. Best case scenario I would love an ensuite, and undercover car park, but am flexible. If you want to know more give me a message!
NEED A FURNISHED ROOM. I'm a full time employee in a great role that gives me a lot of freedom. I can cook and do most nights, I'm very very tidy, organised and clean, and I keep to myself (but love a beverage or two with my housemates from time to time). I'm new to Queensland, I moved to the Gold Coast 3 months ago for this job, and have now been promoted, meaning I have to move up to the Bayside/Eastern areas of Brisbane!
Hello, Accommodation wanted in Brisbane, Sunshine Coast or Gold Coast I am a relaxed, happy, clean, very tidy, non smoking male who is sixty-one years young. I have not long come back from travelling overseas for a couple of years and plan to go again long term again, some time in the future. I am an active, fit, person that loves to be out and about all most every day, all day. My nature is basically quiet but friendly and can hold a sensible conversation with out being a chatter box or intrusive. Apart from travelling, my big love is the Internet and virtual programmes and have many friends from around the world that I keep in regular contact with online. My work background has mainly been in senior Management roles in various forms and I have owned my own businesses. I have formal qualifications in business management, marketing and advertising. I have no criminal record and a clean drivers licence. Please let me know if of any interest.
Moved from Central Queensland to Brisbane in October and currently working full time as a Carpenter. I like to go to gym in the afternoons and enjoy guitar, music, footy and tennis. Up for a drink on weekends but happy to do my own thing also. Will be clean, respectful of others and pay on time.
Hey, my name is Hannah and I am about to relocate from Adelaide to Brisbane on January 30. I'm looking for housemate(s) who are financially reliable, clean, considerate and fun!!! I'm an outgoing, friendly and social person and enjoy exploring new bars & restaurants & cafes (absolutely love going out for breakfast and have been known to drive 30 mins just to get good coffee across town), the beach, good wine, cooking (sometimes). I love getting out for walks and hikes and keep a pretty healthy lifestyle but also love the finer things in life. I'm hoping to find housemates that enjoy sharing a wine or two together and a platter, are cool and respectful and basically that the house is somewhere that I enjoy being in and don't just have to stay in my room when I'm home. If this sounds like you too, I would love to hear from you
I am quiet and respectful but also friendly and happy to chat :) I'm a tidy person and I love writing music (with headphones) and taking photos. I have studied creative technology and occupational health at uni and now work full time. I want to live closer to the CBD with some nice people.
Hi! My name is Laura. I'm 24 looking to make the move to Brisbane from SA. I'm into a healthy active lifestyle. I rarely drink, total homebody. Respectful, tidy and like to keep to myself a lot but also looking to make some friends! Sorry I'm allergic to cats.
I'm an easy going professional working full time in a stable job in the city. I'm currently living on the Gold Coast however the commute is slowly killing me, so I would like to find somewhere closer that will give me more time in my week to do the things that I enjoy. I enjoy being social and getting out and about on the weekends. I feel a bit too old these days to be clubbing or partying every weekend but I do have the occasional night out with friends or a day at the races. I like camping, travelling, cider and chocolate brownies. I'm also doing a little bit of study here and there. I can't cook very well but I'm trying to improve, so I'd steer clear of my cooking for a while... I pay my bills early and clean up after myself... If you happen to have a dog, I would be very happy. I am looking for a room with an ensuite (or my own seperate bathroom) and somewhere undercover to park my car. I also have a bike that I should ride but will probably just be put somewhere to collect cobwebs. Flexible with the amount I'm willing to pay. I do have furniture of my own but i don't mind leaving it where it is. I would like to atleast bring my queen bed with me though. If i sound like your cup of tea, let me know :)
32 year old West Ender seeks new lovely share-home! I'm looking for a place, but not just yet (around 25th Feb, but somewhat flexible). Ideally around West End / South Brisbane / Highgate Hill area but open to the right place in New Farm, Woolloongabba, or Paddington too. I'm 32, have lived around west end since 2008, and love it to bits. I'm living with a friend in her place at the moment but she'll shortly need the 2nd room to herself again. So I'm either looking for a place in an established shared house / apartment with some relaxed / mature minded folk, or to team up with someone who will be looking around the area at that time. I work Monday to Friday in the city, and in my spare time can usually be found around West End (at the markets, yoga, cycling, walking, dinner with friends, occasionally at urban climb), or southbank checking out what's on at GOMA and the like. I've got a bit of a hankering to start a herb / veggie garden too, so if that's your thing, give me a shout! I would love to stay in the West End area and share with a mature minded, considerate person or two, with whom I can share a laugh and a cuppa / glass of wine from time to time. I have my own things going on and am often out and about, but also enjoy living somewhere where housemates can be friendly and open. I'm good at paying bills on time, having open conversations to keep communication friendly and constructive, and keeping things clean and tidy, (but not to a silly degree). I like my home to look nice :) Given the summer heat, ideally the house/apartment would have air conditioning, or at the least some ceiling fans and nice cool breezes. I may melt otherwise!
Hey there! We are on the hunt for a third person to team up with and find a place to live. We are looking to move towards the end of February/beginning of March. Lucy and I are both teachers. About me: I am a 22 year old female (turning 23). I have completed all my studies and now working full time in teaching (primary). I am respectful, clean and easy going.

Love to travel and explore new places. I enjoy trying new food places and heading out for a drink on the weekends. I'm in clean and independent but always up for a chat. Ideally, we are looking at places that are more on the modern/newer side. If you think I'll be interested in teaming up with us, please feel free to contact me. Annie
I'm an easy going, friendly and respectful tenant. Work full time Monday to Friday as a Business Analyst. When I'm not working I'm usually rock climbing or doing something active. Im equally into socialising as I am reading a book, so happy to hang out but also understand down time and respect for space. I'm looking for a furnished room, though I do have my own bedroom furniture if required. Preferably after a private bathroom/ensuite though I'm open to a shared bathroom at the right place. Also looking for a place to park my car (street parking is fine). Only after a 6 month lease at the most. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
We are two friends who will be moving up to Brisbane next month.Milly is from Adelaide and is a Nurse and I'm in Property Management and originally from New York City. I have a whole house worth of furniture so happy to team up with 1-2 people (4 of us total max) to look for a place or if you have a place for rent hit us up. Looking for a 2-4 bedroom place with a balcony, a pool is greatly preferred. If you have a pet that a massive bonus. We would prefer to live with people close to our own age that are social, happy to chat, do group meals if they choose, but also know when to give people their own space. Happy to answer any and all questions.
Hi, my name is Monique. I am doing my Graduate Diploma in Teaching part time and will be working part time too.

I am also a very quiet person to live with and I enjoy living in a quiet home. I am very friendly but I like my own space too. I am happy to help with cleaning and I am reliable with paying rent and bills. Ideally I would like to live in a nice suburb in Brisbane, close to the action.

Currently, I live on the Sunshine Coast, but looking to make the move to Brisbane for work and Uni purposes.

Both myself & my partner work away so rarely home. Both have full time jobs not orginally from Brisbane so have only a few people we know in the area. No early bird access unfortunately. We are both exertemly clean & would like to have our own bathroom. Off street parking is a must also would like room to store belongings would even pay for an extra room to utilise as storage. We are looking for at least a 6 month stay. We both enjoy socialising but also really enjoy our down time. We do not mind animals just not in the house. I work near the city so within 25km of the city would be ideal in any direction as long as it close to a train statiin. We both enjoy to be active & eat well. Have been together for over 13years, we just sold our house & are looking to save some cash before we invest again. We would love a 2brm, 2bath with parking close the city with the amenities. Need to be out by the 14th Feb so please feel free to contact.
Hi I've been travelling around Africa for the past 2 months on holiday. My lease ended just before I left so perfect opportunity to take a long holiday. I'm originally from the UK but have lived in Australia the past 20 years. I am a musculoskeletal therapist and run my own business, I have a clinic in Milton. I am away most weekends. I am clean and tidy and considerate of others needs. Please let me know if you have any questions and a time suitable to view your apartment. Kind regards Gary
Hi potential new house mate! In need of a change and therefore looking for a wonderful new place to call home, preferably in Teneriffe or around (although Westend would be a pretty good alternative aswell). Moving date around mid Feb would be great, so would a furnished room be - but I'm open for everything :) I've always lived in share houses, always enjoyed it and am pretty easy to get along and live with. I love coming home from work (I work office hours btw) and have people around who are up for a relaxed evening, chats, food and a beer. I'm not a crazy party person but very social, love to hang out outside or in the pub for drinks and just have a great and chilled time. I do love and need some privacy and alone-time though from time to time (hello netflix!). I clean up after myself, am respectful and bring everything else that it takes to be a good house mate. Flick me a message or give me a call and get to know me. Maybe I'm exactly the person who you've been looking for :) Cheers Fran
Hey I'm Emma! I'm currently studying a dual degree at QUT and my spare hours are usually spent working or sleeping. Evidently, I am quite reserved but I am always excited to meet and get to know new people.
Hi! My name is Kieran. FIRST THINGS FIRST (EXTREMELY IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ!): 1) This ad posting is VERY LONG and I've done that DELIBERATELY. I do this to "Weed out the Tyre Kickers" (as it's known/called in Online Marketing Circles). Of course the "Tyre Kickers" are bad flatmates! 2) This ad may cut-out for you (being so long). If so, simply send me me a brief message with your email and I will send you this as a word attachment for easy viewing. :) And Don't Worry I will NEVER spam you! 3) If you DON'T WANT TO READ THE WHOLE THING THEN JUST PLEASE UNDERSTAND MY TWO BASIC REQUIREMENTS BEFORE MESSAGING: a) I need air con (ideally in the bedroom), and b) I need reliable (without major dropouts) and fast internet connection. WHY READ IT IN FULL? (EXTREMELY IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ!): - Well let's face it you never really know until you start "Sharing" with someone. We all know that!! - But why not take out some of the GUESS-WORK? Take out some of the RUSSIAN ROULETTE?? The Random DART THROWING at the Board??? - Reading my ad (or document) in full may bring you closer to finding the ideal flatmate :) - And the alternative? It's much closer to Russian Roulette in my opinion. You can go back to the next ad and ask the same old questions...It's all so COMMON...Are you clean and tidy? (who would admit to being not)...Are you social? (who would admit to being a hermit crab)... Are you easy to live with? (who would admit to being a/the next axe murderer!!). DON'T JUDGE ME (EXTREMELY IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ!): - As a flatmate based off the writing style/tone of this post. - As explained (in this post/ad) I'm an extremely relaxed and calm individual. I'm VERY EASY to live with. - Being a Writer (for a living) I many different writing styles/tones and I have chosen to adapt this style (with this level of detail) in the hope of attracting the perfect place and flatmate! Let's Cut Straight to the Chase (which is what you want)... I'M NOT (PLEASE READ - ANSWERS YOUR MAIN QUESTIONS): - In-your face type person. In fact I'm the complete opposite! I'm friendly and social but I tend to do "my own thing" in the main. This is just my personality. I AM (PLEASE READ - ANSWERS YOUR MAIN QUESTIONS): - Single/Straight/Mature/Non-smoking 36 year old Professional Working Male. - Looking to Share with one Other (unless you have a place that is very Special- hint hint) Professional Working Person (sorry no couples). - EXTREMELY reliable. Rent and bills will always be paid on time or in advance. I will supply you with references from my current landlord and previous landlords (if required). - 100% Without a Doubt Looking to Live somewhere for at Least the Next 12 months (probably Longer) and I am more than happy to Sign a/the Lease. - Calm, Relaxed and Laid-Back Individual. Yes that's right. I am the complete opposite of someone that is highly strung. That's what you want right? I seek likewise. And no that doesn't mean we can't hold an intelligent conversation ;) - Very Clean and Tidy but Definitely not Obsessive. "Obsession" is not a good trait to have in your life. It's what pushes bodybuilders to take steroids...it's what forces people to count every single calorie (yeah I used to do this lol)...it's why people with OCD count in their head. If the picture is not clear enough now I'll make it CRYSTAL. If you are "Obsessive" about anything (particularly cleaning) then this probably won't work. In regards to chores (like you no doubt) I restrict these to around the meal times. I have weekly chores I like to do each Friday afternoon (yes nice for some working from home lol) so that the flat/unit/property is nice and clean for the weekend! I also have monthly chores (but lets net go there and put you to sleep) ;) If you have or are open to getting a cleaner then I will consider that too. But I'm fine either way. - Moving from my Current Place in Sandgate because there is no Air-Con or Ceiling Fans! (I WILL NEED AIR CON - PLEASE READ FURTHER BELOW). - Writer (as mentioned earlier) and Online Marketer for a living. I have a VERY stable income and have been doing freelancing (writing/online marketing) work from home for the last 5 years (that's right, it's NOT new). Work references can easily be supplied. Better still, just check my LinkedIn Profile below! I work from home between the hours of 8:30am-5pm Monday to Friday. I divide my time equally between writing and marketing. That's around 20 hours of writing a week and 20 hours of working on a large marketing project (which I'm not getting paid for yet - but my time will come lol). DO NOT WORRY I AM QUITE NOT LOUD if you home during house hours. I'm a writer (firstly) and a marketer (secondly). In Plain English: I'm not on the phone (or listening to music) really at all as my work is obviously writing based. It is only every now and then when I get a new Client. Look let's just be honest. The ideal scenario is that you would be at work (in the main) during the week between those rough hours :) I CAN (PLEASE READ - ANSWERS YOUR MAIN QUESTIONS): - Give your PETS attention (if you have them and are at work) during my working day (my breaks). I like animals and can do this :) - Mind your PETS (including walking) and look after your belongings if you are away on Business/Holiday/Weekend Breaks a lot! You might be in a bind right now but I could be the SOLUTION TO YOUR PROBLEM. - Sign for your registered mail (during the week) and save you a lot of time lining up at the post office on Saturday Morning! I WILL (PLEASE READ - ANSWERS YOUR MAIN QUESTIONS): - Move in at WHATEVER date suits you! That's right. I want to move sooner rather than later but I'm in no rush. I'm not on a lease currently and can move whenever (and I mean the exact day/date that works for you). - ABSOLUTELY 100% WITHOUT A SHADOW OF A DOUBT NEED AIR-CON!! Surely having either air-con or ceiling fans should be compulsory (like insulation) in Queensland! Yes, I'm not a Queenslander (originally) if you haven't guessed already. And No this does not mean I will use the air con all day and night! I will use it to be comfortable and in moderation. I'm more than happy to chip in for the extra electricity bill if I use it more (I would in fact over-compensate you 100%). - Consider a SPACIOUS GRANNY FLAT/SPACIOUS STUDIO (if you have one on offer) provided it has Air-Con and that I can get solid/reliable (without dropouts) internet connection. It would have to be of a decent size though as I work from home during the week. I WANT (PLEASE READ - ANSWERS YOUR MAIN QUESTIONS): - Place with decent size kitchen and living room but this is not high on my hit list! I would much rather have a bigger bedroom (as explained below). I'D LIKE (PLEASE READ - ANSWERS YOUR MAIN QUESTIONS): - Flatmate this is just very calm, relaxed and laid-back. Simple as that. A bit of intelligent conversation doesn't go astray either ;) - Ensuite or Separate Bathroom (but not essential). - Ceilings fans are always good (in addition to air con). I'D LOVE (PLEASE READ - ANSWERS YOUR MAIN QUESTIONS): - Place that is very open/bright. I lived/worked in London 5 years and know all about the cold, rain and the DARKNESS!! I'm definitely more productive/efficient/creative when operating in a bright/open space. I NEED (PLEASE READ - ANSWERS YOUR MAIN QUESTIONS): - Decent (and I mean DECENT) sized bedroom. This should fit a queen size bed (ideally) and standard size desk (definitely). There should be a bit of a room to move too! Remember guys this is not only my bedroom but my "Creative Working Space." I'm NOT part of the corporate working world now. I've considered renting office space but I can't justify the cost at this stage in my life. I'M NOT LOOKING FOR (PLEASE READ - ANSWERS YOUR MAIN QUESTIONS): - Place that is miles (more than 15 minutes walk for me) from PUBLIC TRANSPORT. I won't have a car for at least the next 3-6 months and so nothing further has to be said! - Place that is miles (more than 15 minutes walk for me) from any type of SHOPS (groceries etc). - Place that is miles from ANY GYM (more than 15 minutes walk for me). - Place with LOTS OF LAWN and GARDEN to be maintained. Unless you love doing this of course! A little bit might be OK. In summer the maintenance just becomes too much. - PARTY HOUSE or NOISY ONE. I need the peace and quiet most of the time. And no I don't mean "Church Quiet." I live in society too lol ;) I'M LOOKING FOR (PLEASE READ - ANSWERS YOUR MAIN QUESTIONS): - Place that is 12-15 minutes walk max to TRAIN STATION/SHOPS/GYM/S. Buses are good but prefer trains. With Shops I mean groceries. - AIR CONDITIONED place. Ideally in all main rooms. I understand it's expensive and I don't plan to use it much but I need it to be comfortable during the day and on briefly at night to get to sleep. Don't worry I will over-compensate you (when the bill comes in) for my usage. - RELIABLE (no dropouts in main) and FAST (doesn't have to be lightning!) INTERNET connection. My income depends on this. At my current property there has been problems with the connection at times which is a real negative. To summarise: I'm looking for RELIABILITY (UP-TIME) over speed (but of course the speed must be reasonable). - PARKING (either reliable street parking or even better lock up garage). I will get a car eventually!! - PARTLY FURNISHED (TV, Fridge/Freezer, Washing Machine at least). I don't mind chipping in for other stuff. For my bedroom I have a standard size desk and will buy a queen size bed if the room doesn't have one. That's all the furniture I have! All the rest is clothes. So if you are selling anything then I might be interested :) OPTIONAL READING - LEARN (NOT GUESS) MORE ABOUT YOUR TRUE FLATMATE Now for the Extremely Boring Nitty Gritty Minute Detail Part! Lol OK I'm joking about Nitty Gritty!! But Why the Detail? I ask you WHY NOT?? 1) Think of the hundreds (if not thousands of dollars) you may potentially have to spend if you choose the wrong flatmate based of: a) Putting a basic ad up and HOPING for the best. b) Just asking them a few STANDARD questions at the viewing. c) Going off their DEMEANOR and what they LOOK like. 2) And no I'm not just talking about absolute worst case scenarios like damage to your property. Yeah that can happen (but it's pretty rare - you have to assume most people are good people). a) I'm talking about advertising costs and just lost rental income. b) Not to mention your precious valuable time wasted! YOU CAN NEVER EVER PUT A DOLLAR FIGURE ON THIS!! OPTIONAL READING - LEARN (NOT GUESS) MORE ABOUT YOUR TRUE FLATMATE - I have recently done some exploring around Brisbane suburbs (without a car - as I don't have one now but will look to buy in next 6 months) and found that the "Listed Preferred Suburbs" best fit my requirements. - I will consider the areas of Nundah, Toombul, Sherwood, Oxley, Fairfield, Auchenflower, Taringa, Toowong, Indooroopilly, Mitchelton, Sunnybank, Sunnybank Hills, Bulimba (maybe wishful thinking) and Hamilton (most definitely wishful thinking). - These suburbs (depending on the location of the property) meet most of my criteria. Please give me a shout if you have something in those areas! - For other suburbs it would want to be SOMETHING SPECIAL!! - Everything comes down to the place and of course I want to be able to gel and live comfortably with you :) I'll just know straight away when I see the place and meet you. I'm very much an instinct person (like most of us). OPTIONAL READING - LEARN (NOT GUESS) MORE ABOUT YOUR TRUE FLATMATE - BIT ABOUT ME: - I like the gym (first thing in the morning), walks (near the water if I can), tennis (now and again), football (on TV), admiring nature (whenever I can), travelling (every so often) reading (daily for work and before bed), writing (for work and pleasure), self-improvement (generally), online marketing (work), restaurants (many), socialising (mainly on weekends) and coffee (in small doses). - I'm a social/friendly person but I'm definitely more on the quiet side. I'm not big on TV (in one place I didn't even own a TV lol) at all so don't expect me to join you on the couch watching it. I don't mind the news and a bit of sport though. I just find you learn more by reading. - I do all of my socialising with friends outside of the flat/property but I 100% don't mind if you have people over. I'm not one for dinner parties but go for it!! - I'm not a vegetarian. I cook my own meals as have my own diet I need to follow. Of course there may be a time where a meal or take-away could be shared. - I'm a clean and tidy person and expect likewise. - I'm straight and single currently. I'm too focused on my online business at the moment to pursue anything. - I'm open to living with people of all cultures and sexuality. - I have lived and worked in Sydney (4 years) London (5 years) and Melbourne (3 years) previously. OPTIONAL READING - LEARN (NOT GUESS) MORE ABOUT YOUR TRUE FLATMATE - MY WEEK DAY SCHEDULE: - I'm up each day at 5am (always) and go to bed at 9pm (98% of the time) in the evening. I shoot for eight but settle for around 7 hours sleep! - I'm extremely quiet when I get up at the time. I simply get up, have my morning coffee and head to the local gym. I find it sets up my whole day :) - Then I'll simply come home (from the gym) and have my breakfast and then do some morning chores (quietly if you are in bed). - By 8:00am (yeah I like to relax in the morning not rush) I'll go into my bedroom/office/creative space (whatever you want to call it lol) and do some pleasure/work reading or generally relax (depending on my work schedule for the day). - Then between the hours of 8:30am-5pm I'm working solidly (with breaks - yes including patting your dog or cat ;)). - 5pm-6pm: I will go for a wander/stroll/walk/jog/run (whatever I feel like). - 6:30pm-8pm: I will have dinner and watch a bit of TV (news or whatever is on - I'm not fussy). - 8pm-9pm: I ALWAYS (and I mean always) unplug/tune-out and minimise technology usage completely. Just read (mostly non-fiction). - 9pm: Bed!! Lol. All pretty structured right? Well these times are NOT ALWAYS STRICT. DON'T WORRY I'VE NEVER BEEN ONE FOR THE ARMY. I use them more as guidelines (but this will give you A GREAT idea as to who you would be living with and when you might see me etc etc). OPTIONAL READING - LEARN (NOT GUESS) MORE ABOUT YOUR TRUE FLATMATE - MY WEEKEND SCHEDULE: - Like Most of us I like to unwind and generally relax on weekends :) - I still get up early ( around 6am) but I do stay up later and don't have such a set/regimented/structured day planned! - I'm more a "go-with-the-flow" type of person when it comes to socialising on weekends. Yeah I keep a strict diary for my work but not for social engagements :) - I have a small group of friends in Brisbane (as still quite new to the city). - On weekends I like to get out where possible. For example gym on a Saturday. Lunch/Movie/Dinner with a friend. I might meet up with my youngest sister (I have 3) too. - I'm not the sort of person that will go out for a whole day though. It's generally for half a day or maybe 3/4 of the day (max). Lol I'm just telling this so you know that I will be around a bit on weekends. I'm working on a online marketing project (which I'm passionate about) and so I will spend some time in my room working on that. You might say why work on the wkend? Well for me it's not really work as I'm passionate about it. It's more fun :) I also have a plan and don't always plan to be doing this on wkends! STILL WITH ME??? - We are finished now Lol. FINALLY YOU SAY!! - But at least now you have a much BETTER IDEA as to the person you would be living with! - I'm sorry but I've never been a fan of just throwing a dart at the dartboard and hoping for the best. You need more precision than that if you want to attract the right flatmate (or anything else you want in life). Nothing in life is random despite lotto numbers (despite what you believe). TAKE THE NEXT STEP!!! 1) Please send me a brief (lol not this long) message or text if you have something that will fit my main criteria or if you have any questions for me. 2) I am very responsive to messages (outside of work hours - I do have time on my breaks though) and just to repeat I currently have a place where I can leave at any time. 3) Please avoid calling me (about your place) between the hours of 8:30am-5pm (my work hours). If you have to then please just leave a voicemail and I will get back to you. Calling outside these times is perfectly fine :) FINAL NOTE: - Messages (from property owners) that don't meet my basic requirements (i.e. no air con or not near public transport) will be ignored (it's a long post but seriously just skim read guys - you do it each and every day!). - No hard feelings if I don't respond :) Thanks for your time :) Kieran NOTE: I may be interested in Teaming-Up (and finding a place) but just with one other person (no couples) and you would need to have (or invest) in the majority of the furniture. Don't worry I'd be willing to chip in too :)
Hi my name is Hayden and I am due to start a traineeship in international logistics in Banyo on the 20th of February. I am sociable and very easy to get along with and I imagine I would be quite easy to live with. I enjoy cooking, gym and watching a fair few sports. I went to boarding school in high school so I am independent and enjoy having a clean and tidy house. Pretty flexible about my accomodation but would like a furnished room. Would be happy to move in with any gender around my age (18).
