Clean, quiet and friendly cat owner looking for a room to rent. I keep my things neat and tidy but I'm really easy going and don't mind a little mess. My cat's name is Ollie, he is adorable if a little mischievous. He grew up with dogs so he gets along well with them. Im happy to live with someone who wants to watch movies and have a chat but am just as happy to keep to myself if that's what you prefer.

Hi....I'm Tina, I am looking for a granny flat, self-contained studio, unit or house. I work as a Compliance Audit Officer based in Melbourne CBD but works from home conducting file audits 4 days per week and one day in the city office. I moved back to Melbourne from Perth on 2nd July 2018 and would like to move as soon as possible. I am staying in a holiday park (at great expense!) until I find a suitable rental. I'm easygoing, responsible with rent/bills and will respect your space/house/furniture as if my own. I have a very tame young talking bird-galah who is in training for future public education and is caged when I'm at work or not home. I am an outside considerate smoker so If you think I could fit, send me a message or call me...thanks! Tina

Seeking a house mate who also works full time. I work long days/ nights and on my days off I will generally be sorting out the house, out and about, gym,shopping, or relaxing and watching Netflix. Ideally I am looking at a spacious property where I can have my own bathroom and lots wardrobe space 😊 . I am happy to take on a new lease with someone and furnish most of the house if required. I am not looking for a party house but am happy for my flat mate to have friends over or their partner and host social gatherings as long as they’re mindful that it is a shared space. I’m easy going , friendly and would like to live with someone with a good sense of humour. I’m happy to socialise, eat together, watch movie’s and be friends so that we feel comfortable in our home but obviously I need my alone time too, as I am sure everyone does.

I've just moved back to Melbourne from the Gold Coast after almost 2 years away, looking for something mid/long term, with just a couple of housemates of a similar age, guys or girls, who are clean and casual. I'm laid back, very social and quite active, clean and tidy and understand a need for good housekeeping. Not really much of a tv watcher, and I spend most weekends out of the house, though if its a nice day outside, having couple beers in the backyard aren't going to go astray either. I like cooking up a good feed and I'm happy to cook for more than one. I have a 4 yr old Carpet Python that is extremely social and well handled, though i understand snakes aren't everyones cup of tea, if it makes you feel any better, the enclosure locks and she hasn't got opposable thumbs so it's very hard for her to escape! Plenty of photos on Instagram link. I have taken a few weeks off before i start my new job in civil construction, will be working mainly the M80 upgrade and Citylink works. Will be working up to 6 days on site so really want to be able to come home to a relaxing environment. I like working on my car, or doing any car maintenance, I cant remember the last time i paid a mechanic to do something for me, so I would REALLY like to have a garage space or at very least, under cover off street parking to keep my ute. My other car is just a run about and not fussed where it's parked, be it on a kerb down the street, under a tree, in a tree, bloody whatever. The ute is currently in storage, but it can't stay there forever, so would prefer to have it with me in Melb. I'm on the left in the photo!

Hey there pals! I'm looking for a private room to move into before September 10. I love the Moonee Valley area and would preferably like to stay put around here or somewhere nearby. I just left studies in creative writing at La Trobe and am working as an administrative assistant and developing my own business selling prints of my art. I spend a good deal of my spare time at home in my own space, painting and drawing. Because of that, I might be wrongly perceived as reclusive to some but I always love having a good chat and am always up for doing things as a house. It'd be great to find a place with roomies who are likeminded and also enjoy that sense of company and actually being friends with who they live with. I also love yoga and am learning guitar. I'm a tattoo addict and Seinfeld is my go-to show. I appreciate a clean house and am very respectful and I always have money for rent and bills in time. I don't have pets but would love to be pals with yours if you have any! Excluding rats and mice and ferrets and shit. Not into that. Message me if this sounds like I'd be right for your place :)

Hi all, and yes my name sounds like nintendo but I prefer to go by 64 haha. New to Melbourne, I have spent the last 8 years in Sydney which is also how long I have been in Australia for. I will be working full time in a customer service role in Richmond, so I won't be around much during the day. I'm also a dancer and most Sat nights i'll be away, so even though im quite the extrovert i'm not in the habit of bringing the party home. When im not working im usually at the gym, or watching football (soccer) and im quite passionate about the two. I'm quite considerate and most of my mates or previous roommates will tell you that my layback nature and approach to most situations make me a pleasure to live with. On sundays i'm happy to share a bevy with roommates or conversely binge on whatever netflix has to offer in my room.

We are 3 dentists (2 girls, 1 guy) from Ireland and are moving to Melbourne in October for at least 2 years. We are sociable, easy going, fun loving, interesting people and we are all easy to live with. We get up early, work hard but also like going places, doing cultural things. We are active people and like gymming, CrossFit, running, footy, yoga, surfing, snowboarding/skiing. We also like to eat healthily and love coffee! We do have many other interests also, watching films, reading and we have travelled all around the world making friends with people from all backgrounds. That said, we do like to enjoy our time off i.e a few drinks at the weekend or when we have time off with those we live with and hopefully make long-term friends. We are considerate of other people and are 'leave no trace' sort of housemates. We are a couple and a friend all coming to Melbourne to experience a new city and meet some new people!

I work Full Time, and ride a bicycle for the rest of time. I'm not really home much, but enjoy just coming home, cooking, having a bath then going to bed. This means generally I'll keep to myself, because of the long hours out and about, but I do enjoy sitting on the couch and watching TV or a movie with someone. I'm a fan of horror movies! I train for cycling every day, and sometimes ride on an indoor trainer as well. It's not very noisy, and I wouldn't do it whilst people are asleep. I own 5 bikes though, and would need some space for them! I want a cat, but know it won't work too well until my work arrangements change! I'm not in a rush to move out, as I've lived out of home for a few years, and have now just moved back in with family. I have a bed, some bookshelves, and that's about it. But willing to start new house and purchase majority of stuff if needed!

Hi, I'm 22, well travelled and have a wide variety of experiences. I'm pretty easy to get along with, clean, and well organised. Currently enrolled as a full time student, but take advantage of semester breaks and days off to work, so I'm usually pretty busy. That saying, I'd like to find a housemate that I get along with, and could share the occasional drink or dinner with on a quiet night. As a bit about what I like to do, I like keeping fit, and plan to compete at Crossfit over the next few years. I try and learn new things, and am currently enrolled in German lessons as I'd like to do exchange there in another year or two. I grew up riding motorbikes and mountain bike riding, and from time to time I go camping with friends, and I love the odd solo hike through the forests. I'm always trying out new things to see the best of what life has to offer. Not a big party goer, but if I have some friends going out and I'm not busy it's a guaranteed yes! Looking for something that's pretty long term, and ideally has somewhere to park my ute as I occasionally need it to travel to work. With the right place, anytime between 01/08 and 20/08 as a move in date works for me. Please give me a call or send me a text if you'd like to get in contact. Thanks

Hey! I'm a super friendly gal who loves chatting, but also likes her downtime. I work and study full-time, so I'll be out of the house the majority of the day, unless it's my day off. I'm happy to cook for the house every now and then - I love cooking, especially Italian food, so you'll never go hungry at least! I also love going out for a drink or two, but I'm happy to chill out at home too. I can assure ya that I'm not obnoxiously loud, and I'm quite considerate of other people. I'm looking to move around mid-September to late September, but I'm fine to move out towards the end of September as that's when my lease runs out. Please hit me up if you've got any questions, or want to organize anything!

My name is Vee and I am a 37 year old female from Melbourne seeking a new place to move into by late August. Ideally im looking for a place of my own or to rent out a room which is very spacious with ensuite/own bathroom. I work full time as i have my own cleaning business specialising in private home cleans and end of lease cleaning. I work 6 days a week with occasional night shifts where i clean businesses out side office hours. I am usually busy most nights visiting family and friends when im not working. I enjoy cooking so a nice spacious kitchen would be great. I am tidy and clean up after myself so you wouldn’t need to worry in those areas. My cleaning business does require some late-night shift work so as long as you don’t mind me doing my thing and not getting disturbed by my early morning starts or sometimes late night finishes would be ideal. I am a smoker but would never smoke inside as long as im able to smoke outside in backyard would be greatly appreciated. I am looking for a light filled house that is relatively new and please do not send me images anything dark and gloomy is not what im after. I would prefer a large spacious room with ensuite or own bathroom and good wardrobe space. I also have a car so off-street car park would be great also. Looking for a 1-2 bedroom townhouse to occupy on my own but open to any other options that tick all the boxes.
