Fairfield Housemates & Roommates

New | $270


Looking in: Carlton North, Princes Hill, Brunswick East, Brunswick, Fairfield, Clifton Hill, Fitzroy North, Thornbury, Northcote

Full-time employed Monday to Friday 8 till 4.30pm, so I like to keep regular hours. Been helping run logistics for a software company for the last 12 years so it is mainly events and international for the last 2. Around the home I take things pretty easy. Like to keep everything clean and tidy even if my room can look like a bomb's gone off from time to time (the plan is to get rid of all my things and start being minimalist - see how that goes). Can cook and happiest when sharing a good meal and wine with good company (one of the things I need to get rid of is a small collection of wine, but drinking alone is not my thing). I can be unsocial from time to time and retreat to my room, but am always up for a chat if called upon and I am looking ideally for a home where I feel I belong for as long as that may be. I'm respectful of personal space and mindful of how my actions effect others. Can be spiritual and deep, but in no way consider myself an intellectual - just informed enough to have formed an opinion or feeling on most things, but open enough to enjoy having those views changed. I'm confident and open enough to say if I have a problem with anything, but hopefully also good enough to ask the questions needed to find things out when we meet. Ideally looking for a home that I get along with people well and share common areas, but can easily be happy enough chilling alone. Music is something I love. I've had tickets and to Golden Plains, Andrew Bird, the Mountain Goats, Lloyd Spiegel, Beth Orton, Brian El Dorado & The Tuesday People, and Tim McMillan & Rachel Snow this year, and just downloaded Old Crow Medicine Show's new album and listening to as I write this up. Like to go out when any good opportunity presents itself, but I don't think I'm likely to be out very late, very often anymore even if I am a bit of a night owl. Like games (have PS4, chess board and various cards), sci-fi and fantasy (have books, dvds/blu-rays- possibly to be moved on if I embrace this minimalist thing), basketball and golf - though rarely after I have played. Need to find a Place by end of July though ideally want to move ASAP so am flexible with when I move.

I'm a creative and musical individual who loves to eat and laugh with friends. Having lived by myself for a while, I'm great at adulting - including paying rent/bills on time and keeping the house clean. I'm sociable, but very independent so value alone time. I'm looking for a reasonable sized bedroom and a secure back-yard for Indy. Indy is a small, 8 year old Chi-Hound (Dachshund x Chihuahua). He is super friendly and polite; at the moment he comes to work with me most of the time. For the past couple of years I have been managing an artisan jewellery business. I'm pretty relaxed and quiet during the week, but I love to go out dancing.

Hi, I'm a 32yo professional that has recently re-established myself in Melbourne after spending 10 years in Western Australia. I'm looking to move from my existing share house to something with a bit more room and in a much quieter street. Generally looking in the north and west within a 30 PT or bike ride of the CBD. I work a regular 8-5 job with very occasional field work away. I've spent the majority of the past 15 years in share houses and as such I come to you as a clean, tidy and respectful housemate whom contributes to household chores. I enjoy sharing a meal and socialising with the household, but am also busy and happy to do my own thing. My weeknights are generally pretty quiet, but I tend to plan quite a few hiking/camping/skiing/family trip for the weekends. I also love travel, dancing salsa and sitting on the front porch with a wine. I'm looking for a small household with not more than 1-2 other people. Please feel free to contact me if you have any further questions or would like to meet up and chat! Thanks for stopping by my profile.

Looking in: Thornbury, Reservoir, Preston, Fairfield

I am a 37yo Naturopath and Bowen Therapist. I practice at a beautiful clinic in Thornbury, and also work at a great health food store in Gisborne. I volunteer at CERES in the propagation team. I love growing food, and learning about permaculture. I'm currently growing veggies in a rather large patch, and am keen to do so again in a new place, though perhaps in raised beds this time. I'm hoping for the garden to be a joint venture. I would love to get chickens if the other housemates are also interested. I also enjoy going to local gigs, trying various places to eat around the area, and the occasional "crafternoon" with a couple of friends. I intend to improve my sewing and woodwork skills by attending a couple of short courses this year. I have a 10yo (lazy) cat, who spends a lot of his daytime sleeping in the garden, and the night in my room. He is always happy for cuddles, but doesn't play, scratch or bite. He is of course fully house trained (i.e. litter, doesn't scratch furniture etc). He tolerates dogs but fears other cats, so would prefer a house with no other pets. He is not a hunter. I have a lot of house-sharing experience, and have NEVER had an issue with paying rent and bills on time (and have always received my bond back in full). My main reason for moving is that I'd like to find a cleaner house. My current flatmates are also rather unhappy people, so it is time for a change. So overall I'm after a house with clean, happy, positive flatmates (preferably 30yo+), and a garden to play with. A place where we each do our own thing but also come together for a chat or occasional shared meal. I'd like to avoid heavy drinkers and party animals. I am pretty flexible regarding moving date, but ideally would like to be able to give one month's notice to my flatmates, without having to pay two rents for too long. I am looking in Fairfield, Thornbury or Preston. Possibly Reservoir.

Nikita & Alex

Looking in: Hawthorn, Yallambie, Fairfield, Ivanhoe, Eaglemont, Preston, Northcote, Thornbury, Reservoir, Heidelberg, Rosanna, Watsonia, Montmorency, Lower Plenty, Greensborough, Eltham

Hey, Let us tell you a little about ourselves :) My name is Nikita. I'm a Barista, in the process of working towards owning my own cafe. I love to travel, experience new things and I do my best to make the most of what each day has to offer. I'm very friendly and outgoing and I have no trouble making friends with new people. My partner is Alex, a qualified Electrician, also studying Project Management. Alex is super chilled, likes having a good laugh and keeping busy experiencing new things. He's always up for meeting new people and making new friends. We're both very easy going people, happy to keep to ourselves, or just as happy to be in a more social living arrangement and make new friends. We both work Monday - Friday and keep pretty busy over the weekends. Alex swims 3 nights a week and I attend kickboxing 3 nights a week so we're never just hanging about the house too much. Anyway, we're basically good people, saving for a place of our own and we'd love the opportunity to find some fellow good people to rent with until it's time to buy a place of our own. If we sound like your type of people, please let us know :)

I am a chilled Polish guy enjoying life in Australia for the past 9 years. I like the outdoors, and I'm interested in biology, philosophy and sciences. I like to chill at home with a glass of red, enjoy a good movie. I like cooking and experimenting with food, always happy to share and try new things. I avoid eating meat however from time to time I give in to my carnivorous habits. I've lived in harmony with a variety of people and have been able to find balance and harmony. I am looking for a place with open-minded people who want a house to be more than a place to sleep and eat. I do not smoke, and I do not tolerate smoking - I have a sensitive sense of smell (I can sense a good coffee from a long distance). Having me around is a good addition if you like a bit of laugh and adventure :)

Hi my name is Bas. I am a 38 y.o male working full time in the security field (early mornings not late nights!) I lived with my partner for the last 13 years but unfortunately we have decided to amicably separate. We have a child but he will be staying with Mum (of course I would love to have him over to see daddy's new place wherever that might be) and I am looking around the north, central and eastern suburbs. At 38 I am particularly well house broken and I am looking for somewhere and someone stable to live with while I transition to the next stage of life. I'm keen to socialise with housemates over dinner / drinks or hanging out at pubs/outdoors.  I would really like to see your place so feel free to contact me thanks.

Hi I'm Jess. I'm 28 years old and work as a client services officer at a financial planning firm. My interests include music, especially live gigs, the ocean, travel, animals and spending time with friends. I'm a fairly easy going person, like to keep things tidy and would consider myself to be quiet but friendly. I am a bit of a nanna during the week but always up for a dance and a drink on the weekend and my poison of choice is a vodka, lime and soda water and a tequila shot never goes astray. Cheers :)

Looking in: Kew, Fairfield, Clifton Hill, Camberwell, Northcote, Hawthorn, Collingwood, Fitzroy North, Fitzroy, Burnley, Cremorne, Richmond

Hello :) our lease is up in Windsor and I'd like to move closer to my business in Richmond as I'm so over the insane traffic around Windsor!! We are both professionals employed full time (Laura has her own business), very fun but equally hard working, clean and reliable. Excellent with money and paying rent/bills on time. We are both very tidy and clean and very house proud. We are looking for 3-4 bedroom large houses around Collingwood/Clifton Hill/Fitzroy/Richmond and possibly Northcote. And there are some gorgeous houses coming up but we need a 3rd or possibly 4th person to join us in the hunt! I have a 4mth old kitten and we are both animal crazy and we'd love to live with people that are creative/interested in gardening, art, philosophical discussions about life etc. We believe in treating others well and putting out positive energy into the world. No negativity thanks! I practice yoga and mindfulness (Laura), love wine time and it would be lovely to find a 3rd or 4th friend to join our team. We love eating out, trying new cafes and dinners at home. We have everything a house needs but are very open to more furniture, especially a dining table and outdoor furniture. I have an ever burgeoning collection of indoor plants that you can enjoy too! I will also be bringing my 2 yr old GSP dog for weekend visits occasionally (he lives with my parents) so you need to love dogs. You must like animals, having a laugh and looking for friends rather than just a flatmates. Get in touch! Looking forward to hearing from you :)
