Bubbly and respectful. Natural social butterfly. Extremely clean and tidy. Literally get up, go to work, come home, eat and end up watching netflix on my laptop until I fall asleep during the week. On weekends I will usually be out catching up with mates. I don't drive so ideally the property will be within walking distance of a train station, as I work in the CBD.

Originally from the UK and have spent the last 3 years living and working in Austria. I'm heading to Melbourne on a 4 year sponsored visa to start work in the Australian subsidary of my current company as a Project Manager. I'm fairly well-travelled and will be coming from shared accomodation (5 people), so I understand how important it is to be a clean and respectful housemate! An outgoing person and like to stay active whether it be in the gym, playing sports or out on a hike, etc. I'm also keen on my music and would love to meet people to head to some gigs with; officially a pubs-over-clubs kinda guy (these days!) and always keen to improve my cooking skills (obligatory glass of wine/cold beer during preparation, of course.) Weeknights are admittedly quite low-key between work and keeping active, but it would be great to meet sociable housemates keen to enjoy the occasional meal together etc. If you've any questions, please feel free to ask!

Hey Legends! Thanks for checking out our listing! We're originally from Sydney and we have been envisioning to live in Melbourne since last year. We're both from loving, respectful and good valued families and we're looking to add to the positive vibe of a home that aligns with our quiet-natured and caring personalities. We're both into conscious living, mindfulness and keeping our temples happy, healthy and primed for success. We hit the gym regularly, both eat a whole-food plant based diet and love a good night in watching either a good drama, romance or comedy. We're very easy to get along with, love getting to know new people and have a peaceful, chilled and zen vibe about us. We love a good book to read, into personal growth and exploring new cities, cultures and foods. We love a good game of mini golf, go-karting and anything that involves getting out in nature. I, Tyson, work for Masseuse Massage in South Melbourne as a Sales Consultant and working on become a professional currency trader, life coach and professional speaker. I love empowering others to reach their highest potential and the challenge of continuously finding ways to improve the lives of others. In my downtime, you'll find me engaged in a good personal development book, I love audio books and you might hear me play either classical music, chillstep, house or binaural beats as I develop my skills as trader/investor (If I don't have my headphones in so I'm not disturbing anyone). I love my own space but also love to get around positive, awesome and fun people who has the zest for life like I do. Bec, my beautiful sweetheart, has her own business called Purify Your Light as she is gifted energy healer, life coach and spiritual guide. She works at Nudie Jeans when she's not working on her business, loves yoga & meditation, enjoys a quality book and can't get enough of being in nature. She has such a sweet, loving and magnetic energy about her that no matter where she goes, she'll make everyone around her feel at ease, happy and vibrating at a higher frequency. She has a good sense of humour (we both do :-) ) and is driven to make this world a more happier, conscious and loving place. If you can see us being part of your lovely abode and would love us to check it out, we know the universe will align the perfect lil place for us with like-minded people who vibrate on the same frequency. Hope you're having an amazing day whenever you reads this and please don't hesitate in getting in contact with us. Namaste, Tyson & Bec <3

Hi! I am looking to move to Melbourne around December 2018 due to receiving a full time job at St Vincent’s Hospital starting in January. I have rented before and lived in share houses so I am clean and tidy, and respectful of everyone's personal space. Always pay rent and bills on time. Preferably looking for a house that has all the main area furnishings already but happy and probably prefer to bring my own bedroom furniture. Definitely looking at somewhere I can stay for at least 12 months. I will be working full time during the week, and some weekends, and studying as well. Outside of work I love to watch the footy and chill out with some netflix in my free time. Feel free to send me a message with anything you have available!

Hello! My name is Gabriel, I'm 17 and I love creativity, collecting vintage clothing and art. I am travelling from Cairns to Melbourne to pursue a career and hopefully find myself (cheesy, I know!) I am extremely mature for my age, as my living situation requires me to pay rent, cook, clean and be independent. I currently work casually in a vintage clothing store, as I am still a full time student. I hope to join a share house full of beautiful, creative, inspiring people, who can create a happy, peaceful space. Hope to hear from you shortly! :)

I'm extremely easy going, open minded and fastidious. So anyone living with me always benefits as I do most of the the cleaning. I respect others needs for private space with occasional socialising. I'm a full time student and artist, so spend most of my time doing assignments or paintings. I'm looking for low maintenance housemates who are also not overly sensitive emotionally. Just want to live in a drama free household. 😊👍 I have a Japanese spitz (small-medium size dog), but can keep her at family if absolutely necessary.I also have some furniture so looking for a place that can accommodate furniture or has storage for furniture until I can figure out what to do with it. I'm looking for home I can be comfortable in, and has a friendly, safe and open environment. This is imperative as I am more of a home body. Respect is also key regarding interaction between housemates as well as respect for belongings. I would like a bedroom door that is lockable and would prefer to live in a house, but open to apartment only if there is a balcony with view or a courtyard as apartments can get claustrophobic. 😜☺️

Hi all. I’m looking for a room with en-suite. I’m mature minded tradesman working full time and I think I would be very helpful around the place. You see I like to pull things apart and fix stuff (that’s already broken). I come fully house trained so I’m no grub to the point where I’ve been told I have O.C.D. I just think there is gotta be something wrong with ppl if they like to live like a pig (no offence to any pigs that may read this). I like to have my privacy but I’m not a hermit. I’ll never say no to a challenge so if I do find a place I can call home, be prepared. Let the games begin!!!! Lol So that’s me in a nutshell and Thx for reading my profile 🤪
