I am a Patient Transport Officer (non-emergency Ambulance Officer) and am seeking 'granny flat' accommodation. I moved down from Queensland 1 year ago and have been sharing with others up until now. A 57 yo divorced 'gentleman' who has been a home owner in the past and is clean living, quiet and respectful. Dogs seem to love me too as they are true judges of character ;) I also require the Internet.

Looking in: North Melbourne, Port Melbourne, Melbourne, Southbank, Saint Kilda, South Yarra, Richmond, Brunswick

Hi There, I've studied construction management and architecture at Deakin in Geelong the past 5 years so now im making the move to Melbourne to start a graduate position with a construction company operating in the CBD. I will be working standard weekly office hours mon - fri. I love the outdoors including surfing, golf and camping and also love all things music including the occasional festival and gig. I will definitely be making the most of being in Melbourne to check out many music venues around. As I will be based in the CBD ideally i would prefer somewhere close by or with easy access into the city to reduce the commute as much as possible to spend more time doing things Id prefer to be doing including going the gym or spending time with friends. Also open to weekly rent from $100 to ~$250. Hopefully I seem like someone you like to live with and i hear from you soon !

Looking in: Melbourne, Southbank, Melbourne

Hey I'm Chase. I'm 19yo and I'm studying aviation atm. I like to focus on my study (just kidding) and I usually spend my spare time on video games and netflix. I'd consider myself as an introvert, the reason I point it out is because I personally feel like people on here are always seeking people who are very social and I'm just being honest about who I am. It doesn't mean that I always lock myself in my room even though I'm a considerate and quiet person which means I'm still very interested in making friends and extending my social circle. =)

Hey everyone, my name's Amber. Turned 30 this year and looking for a massive lifestyle and inspirational change - want to get away from Sydney as soon as possible and relocate to Melbourne. A bit of background on me - I've been a multi disciplinary Artist since I was a child, with a main focus on Acting, Singing and Musicianship. Completed my tertiary education in Acting and I'm currently doing distance study in Electronic Sound Production and Indigenous Studies, to help expand my mind and teach me new skills. I love to read and learn, have solid conversations and a good laugh, share knowledge - books and artworks make up 70% of my earthly goods! A few of my interests include Reading, Playing Guitar, Socializing with friends on the weekend, Writing, Dancing, Acting, Cooking, Travel, Theatre, Music Production and Songwriting, Singing, Yoga and Martial Arts, Gaming (Xbox 360 - I have one to bring to the house and a load of games, if that's your thing too), binge watching Netflix or getting into some hardcore SBS on demand / ABC iview when I have free time, Photography and Art of all forms. Social justice, human/civil rights and equality are vital concepts to me. By no means a definitive list, but it gives you a bit of an idea. I'm friendly, respectful, fun, keep things in the house clean and am a weird balance of someone who likes to say hi and be social round the house when it suits people, but can also respect your space/privacy and like to enjoy my own when I'm feeling hermity too - hopefully you won't be the type to take it personally if i need some time out to myself. Not a precious princess about things and am really adverse to passive aggressive types - if you're not the sort of person that can just have a calm, upfront chat and nip it in the bud if I accidentally do anything to annoy you, then we probably won't enjoy living together. I'm a smoker, although more than happy to go outside if you're not, as this is most people's preference, I'm not obnoxious about it and respect people's needs. Constantly burning fragrant oils / candles and incense anyway and am very conscious of mutual space, nothing like coming home to a house that feels welcoming and smells divine. Not a huge party animal, though I do enjoy occasionally having people round sometimes - during the week I'm pretty chill (although, also not boring hey - totally not adverse to cracking some wine or beers while cooking / having a friend round when the mood strikes - I'm a pretty mean cook, double plus bonus!). Weekends are always easier for getting out and about or catching up with people. If this sounds like someone you wouldn't mind sharing space with, let me know. Thanks in advance mates, look forward to meeting some like minds - keen for a long-term place I can make a home, with cool, fuss-free housemate/s who like the sound of my listing. Looking to make the move ASAP soon as I find something. Let me know if you have any questions. Peace and Thanks, Amber

Mitch

Looking in: Fitzroy, Collingwood, Carlton, Richmond, Brunswick

I'm a laid back Perth-born guy studying advertising at RMIT, and i'm looking (ideally) to get together with a few people and start a new share house, or possibly just a room in an existing house if the people are cool. I'm still pretty new to Melbourne and so i'd love to be living with people that will be down for beers or a good 2K/FIFA wager, and I'd be totally cool with you having mates over for drinks/small parties as long as you're not weird about me meeting them. So basically hit me up if you're a social guy/gal that isn't going to hide in their room all the time. I'm just going to dot-point stuff from here on out: - I'm a clean guy, but definitely not a neat freak, so your room can be a total pig-sty if you want, so long as common areas are kept presentable. - Couples okay - I don't own a car so Flemington and Kensington are appealing as they both have stores nearby and are also close to the CBD, but if you know of any other areas that are similar I'm definitely flexible. - I am a really sarcastic guy and constantly making jokes, but also love to have a lengthy debate over serious and interesting topics, so if those things don't appeal to you then i'm not your best option because they are the main pillars of my personality. - My cooking skills are seriously minimal (toast and spaghetti) - I'm on time with rent, and happy to split bills on anything extra in order to keep costs down. - Possibly okay if you have pets, but I would have to make sure my throat doesn't close up around them. (i'm a serious dog lover so being allergic is depressing as fkkkkk) - I'm not fussed about you bringing people home from bars/clubs so long as you flick me a text first so I have a chance to get out of your way. - I go to the gym, but i'm no bodybuilder, so I don't want you judging me when I pound down 2 pizzas alone. - I'm a diehard Crows fan, and a big follower of the NBA and Premier League, but I love to watch just about any sport. - I like to watch House of Cards, Game of Thrones, Suits, The Office, Friends re-runs, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and probably a bunch of other stuff I can't remember. - Oh and my favourite movie has been Titanic since i was 5 years old, I feel like that might be relevant somehow. - Other interests include; US Politics, Standup Comedy, Writing, Reading, Gaming (just basic stuff like sports games and the occasional shooter), Golf (i'm terrible at it but i enjoy a sunny day on the course), and drinking too much. That's pretty much it, I'm a good bloke to have around the house if you're not a super serious person, and i do my fair share to ensure harmonious living. If you're interested or if you have any questions please message me!

Camilla

Looking in: Preston, Northcote, Fitzroy, Thornbury, Collingwood

I am Camilla - Austrian (and half Swedish) and currently moved to Melbourne. I’m a full- time student at La Trobe and I’m searching for a nice place to live around! About me: I am an easy-going, friendly person, who likes to socialize and prefers a home more than a house...I like clean environments so I always keep things tidy. For me mostly the vibe in the house is important and that everyone is respectful with each other. Clear communication, reliability and a good sense of humour shared together, is what I like in my housemates. Moreover giving privacy when wanted/needed but also being able to hang out together is important for me. I love to cook, laugh and laugh, share a glass of wine, meditate, do Reiki, discuss life, read and simply enjoy life and everything that nourishes the soul ☺

Looking in: East Melbourne, Fitzroy, Carlton, Collingwood, North Melbourne

Born in Aus but grew up in England and backpacked around Aus the past 2 years. Now I'm looking for stability and routine for the next 6 months before uni starts (and potentially during uni as well). I'm a social and easy-going guy, but I'm not messy and don't rely on others for things when avoidable. I am big on music: love festivals, gigs and I play acoustic guitar. Also an avid cook, I'm a bit of a scientist so I like to experiment with flavours and see what mixes well with each other. Love geeking out to a board game or video. Considering getting into a martial art and/or ballroom or salsa dancing!

Haaave ya met Jed? I'm looking for a house or flatshare and some cool people to go along with it! I currently live in Brunswick, which I think is a great area, but I'm open to looking at a lot of locations. Ideally I'm looking for people of a similar age or older, that enjoy occasionally hanging out after work with a bev or even sharing the odd meal. I'm flexible on contract durations, but nothing too short-term; I live in Melbourne permanently. Me: Easy going guy that laughs at pretty much everything and fancies himself a bit of a (wannabe), comedian. I work full-time in the city during the week and can usually be found in Brunswick, Fitzroy or the city in the evenings/weekend. I play the guitar, like to the socialise, train at the gym and watch a lot of movies. Get in touch if you're interested in buddying up or have a room going! Danke, Jed

Hi there! I'm Hayley and I'm currently 21 years old. I've just recently completed my Accounting degree at university in Western Sydney but moving to Melbourne in January 2018 to commence full-time employment with NBN Co. Since May 2016, I've been living in a granny flat so I am familiar with bill management and always manage to keep the house tidy. I am more than happy to chip in and help out where needed I tend to keep to myself and often entertain myself by watching Netflix, playing Xbox, reading a book or going to live music gigs. I also love to travel and have been around Australia multiple times as well as the US twice (3rd trip booked in November '17). That being said, I am a very bubbly person and always up for a chat, a night out or even just a night in with my flatmates if you're up for it. I do not smoke nor have any pets but have no problems if flatmates do. I am very clean and organised and looking forward to starting a new chapter of my life in Melbourne!

I like to think I'd be pretty easy to live with, I like to keep to my self most of the time but I can be very social and friendly, I do not smoke cigarettes and don't have any issues with those who do, I'm a social drinker/dont drink too often, most of the time after work I settle for a coffee and that usually keeps me happy for the rest of the night haha. I work in Landscape Construction full time, have been for a few years now so Tradie by day, and I like to jump on my PC or Xbox and play a few games, Play the guitar or just watch movies and series for the rest of the night haha. I'm pretty clean, I make an active effort to do my best and keep things tidy, Clutter makes me grumpy so I usually don't let it get out of hand. I'm looking for a house that can accommodate myself and have space for my partner to visit. My partner would only be over on weekends as she is studying and not able to move with me but would still be happy to chip in for any food or utilities she may use. Been living at home until now, this will be the first time moving out of home, and I want to keep living costs at a minimum to maximise saving for holidays and a future home :)

Furthermore, I am working on a book that I will try to sell around February (if you're nice to me ill let you read it). As for me, I love to read, write, and take aimless walks. I'm social but also I plan to be pretty busy with working and pursuing my projects. I arrived in Melbourne 2 weeks ago and I'm using this week to explore the city, find work and find a good permanent place. Im starting construction next week too!
