# Rental bio Hi ! I’m Chen. I saw your rental vacancy and am eager to inspect. 24 // Male //Perth born and raised //Sri Lankan Tamil ethnicity I can move in now or as late as August 31. I rocked up to Melbourne wide-eyed on July 24 but am currently rotting on my sister’s couch. I moved over here to study and so far I’m keeping my head down - mostly to avoid glimpsing my sis and her bf touch each other excessively. I’m technically here to complete a Master of Journalism, however a larger inspiration for the move was to get out of the inertia and monotony of my hometown. I fell in love with big cities and cultural epicentres after a recent trip to Toronto and NYC. My interests include psychology (which I have a bachelors in), hip hop, cinema, egg noodle soup, inhaling art and exhaling journal entries. I used to live with three friends from high school. We enjoyed drunken dancing, discussing Kendrick Lamar’s Damn and going through the BBC’s critics poll for the 100 greatest films of the 21st century. I’m clean and minimalist. I want to make the most of my time here - to meet diverse characters, have intoxicating conversation, inhabit new perspectives and be inspired by sublime views. If you think I’m a good fit, let me know. I’m keen to inspect. Cheers, Chen
I'm a final year student working part-time who's looking for a place to stay now that I've come back from exchange. During the week I will be pretty busy, but am always happy to have a chat/grab a coffee when free. I like to cook (mostly vegetarian, but I don't have a problem sharing a kitchen with people who aren't), binge-read and make travel plans I can't afford. I do have previous rental experience, and having lived in share-housing since my early teens, I can confidently say that I make a quiet, clean, drama-free housemate. Looking for a tidy property that's not a party house and preferably also non-smoking. I love animals, so if you have a pet/s that won't bother me in the least :)
Vanessa, I am 26, a lawyer, but currently working in a restaurant in the crown casino . I am studying as well, project management. I am very clean!! friendly and easygoing . I love to do exercise and I am salsa dancer as well 🙂 looking for a place to call home :) Single room move day , after 20 of August Close to the CBD I looking forward to hear from you soon. Cheers
Hello! I'm a full time student at the University of Melbourne, though I also work part time. I am a friendly, laid back person and love meeting new people. I strive to keep myself neat and organised wherever possible and will respect your need for space and alone time. In my free time, I enjoy playing sports (tennis and soccer), watching shows and eating.
I'm orginally from the Gold Coast but I've spent the past 6 years living in New York and San Francisco. I just moved to Melbourne (never lived here before!) and am looking to live with one other person. I spend my time eating all the things, taking day trips away, attempting to find parks to run/exercise in, guzzling a nice amount of wine on weekends (and maybe a cheeky bevy during the week). I also love hosting dinner parties here and there and am super into watching stand up comedy. I love being around people but also appreciate down time (especially in the mornings). Looking for someone who feels the same way. Would be great to find a roomie who's into similar things but no biggie if not. Oh and I'm the one on the left. Feel free to add me on social if you wanna know more!
Hi there! We are both from the Netherlands, and we're looking for a new place to live. I am an Aerospace engineering PhD student at RMIT, while my girlfriend is a philosophy teacher here on a working holiday visa. We are both quite clean but not insane about it, and are generally up for a shared dinner/drink/activity! We're not insane party people though. I love playing and watching sports, enjoy discussions about all sorts of topics, from politics to craft beers, and like to cook. My girlfriend also loves a good chat and we both love to read. We've both lived in share houses before so we know what it's like! If we seem like a good fit we'd love to come by some time and take a look! Cheers!
Hi guys, I'm an exchange student at the uni melbourne currently doing an exchange semster for half a year. I arrived two weeks ago but since I only have a sublet contract in Brunswick for 4 weeks I have to start searching again. I used to live in shared student houses/flats for my entire studies (so almost 5 years now) and I really enjoy this form of living. I'm very laid back, easy going, social but also respect the privacy of other. I'm down for almost any kind of sport, go for a hike or roadtrips on the weekend but also like just to hang out at home and enjoy a beer at the CBD or at home. Fun fact: I broke my arm a few years ago, sliding down a ski slope with an upside down table during apres ski in Switzerland :D Ideally the location should be close to uni melbourne since I bought a bike already :) I'm looking forward to here from you! Cheers, Patrick
Hey guys! So I'm 27, work full time in the city, just finished my part time uni degree last semester (hallelujah!). I love trying to keep fit and eat healthy, I've recently joined the F45 cult in Ascot Vale and am addicted :) In saying that I love a cheeky red wine! :) I'm looking for a place for at least 12 to 18 months, after that I'm hoping to have enough to buy my own little place in the area. During the week I'm pretty low key, a bit of Netflix and maybe a walk after work, the weekends I love brunches, catching up with friends and family and sometimes some hikes. In terms of a house, I love my own space but at the same time am always up for a chat, movie or out for dinner with housemates! Ally x
Hi there, I'm Laura, I've just moved to Melbourne from Hobart. I'm a nurse and will be working part time fully rotational shift work. I am neat and tidy to live with, happy for some housemate hangs or to do my own thing. I love to travel and love going to music festivals and gigs. Always keen to check out a new brunch spot. Looking for a room around Carlton or Brunswick.
Hi I'm Soma, I work part time and am a sports trainer on the weekends. I enjoy all the usual things like hanging out with friends, having a few drinks during the week and exercising. I'm an active, outgoing person who has had sharehouse experience. I am looking to start my own sharehouse northside or move into an existing sharehouse. My values include honesty, respect, mature open dialogue and freedom to be oneself. I'm a fairly chill person and won't invade your space or me time, but I'm also down for being social and having a drink with my housemates. I am looking fo somewhere from northcote or Thornbury to as far out as Heidelberg or rosanna. I am looking for like minded people to create a home with. I'm applying and looking at houses at the moment but it's always better to have a group in order to be more successful. Hence why I'm on here trying to find housemates! Feel free to message me if you have any queries or this sounds like something you'd like to do.
Hiya, I'm moving to Melbourne from Perth to come study Interior Design at RMIT Uni. ideally, looking for my own small unit ...partly furnished with white goods would be even better! Will also consider house shares but no room shares. Up to $200pw is what id be looking at spending (ahh the life of a student) I'm 34 years old, so my partying days are quite behind me. Much prefer quiet nights in reading, listening to music- huuuuge music lover...though don't ask me what i listen to because i have a huge range of tastes ranging from ska, rocksteady, Old R&B, rockabilly, to old funky hip hop and old school metal... coming from a family with musicians i was always taught to keep my music tastes open! Love watching documentaries- mainly true crime, paranormal, Nat Geo, and environmental. Drinking tea, health & wellbeing, Kmart, aromatherapy, cooking, drawing and potting plants makes me happy...but then so does the occasional social drink and going out to a good gig and dinner with friends from time to time. I would consider myself respectful to others ,easy to get along with and very clean and tidy. Though i'am quite a private person, i get along with all walks of life. Also will be looking for a casual job 2 days or 3 nights a week.. Please feel free to get in touch if you'd like to know more.

I feel I'm well rounded and understanding of others , if I don't understand I will use the phrase from my LEAST LIKED politician ,( please explain ) so I might understand THEIR point of view. Best Regards , Aaron. ps I'm looking for an unfurnished room.
Hi I'm Kellie, I'm newly single and looking for a place to call home. I'm really easy going, personable and always up for a wine or a cup of tea if it's going. I'm clean, tidy and respectful of personal space. I work in Finance for a Fashion house in Carlton so would like to find somewhere preferably North side. I like to keep it pretty quiet and routine during the week but on weekends I'm usually out and about or at home chilling. I like music, sport, dancing, wine, fashion, cooking and lots of laughs. Cheers Kellie
Hey there! Looking to either move into an existing flat or start a team up and find a flat with 2-3 others. I'm a registered nurse moving to Melbourne from chch ,New Zealand to work in the Royal Children's Hospital on the 2nd of October so would ideally like to have a flat sorted before then. I am Down for good Chat / banter and hanging out with flatmates, but am also respectful of people's privacy! I enjoy going out but am just as happy with a good chat over a meal! I love fitness and food and outdoor activities- walking and hiking and exploring new places ! I'm looking to make Friends in a flat not just share a space as I will be new to the country. I'm clean and tidy and respectful of other flatmates. No smoking please 😄 If You think we would Be a good fit , Hit me up !
While looking for work and waiting to study Vet nursing I mostly spend my time volunteering at various animal organisations to further my knowledge. I guess I am a down to earth, open, honest person. I love to laugh, smile, read and sketch.. Im a bit of a geek when it comes to games, although I don't play as much anymore. Creating things is my hobby, whether its a planting something just to watch it grow or a painting some furniture, small or big I am always actively doing something. Im a bit of a klutz and air head at times *forgetful* but very adaptable. I love to see others happy and believe honesty is the best way when living with anyone. I like constructive criticism, to discuss, Im always looking to better myself. I love to get to know any person.. but I would like to live with people that I can maybe collaborate with. I have two cats, Elye and Monk, they are beautiful and pleasant to be around, the least pushy, most visibly appreciative cats. Elye- Showed up on my friends door at 4 weeks old, tiny with huge globes for eyes that he never seemed to grow into. Loves to be spoken to and always knows when you're speaking about him. He is very sociable, loves to snuggle and is still very much a kitten, despite him being 2 years. Monk- Only still a little one, Monkey is full of energy. He has a very strange persona, skittish but brave? The reason his name is Monkey? He makes these little high gurgling noises much like his brother but he hardly ever meows. Everyone falls in love with this duo. Funnily enough even people that don't usually like cats become fond of them, they're just so unique and random. Oh, I have a heap of furniture that is in storage. This huge double door fridge, a 1 door fridge probably suited for outdoors, an 8 seater beautiful oak table, bookshelves, a washing machine and a few other cute bits and bobs. It would be great to get them out but if they aren't needed its no biggie. As I mentioned, I love to get to know people but I also love it when people take the time to know me. Please feel free to send me a message with any questions :)
I'm a Southern Californian native born and raised, have the greenest of thumbs, and the literal definition of a jack of all trades. Ain't nothin I can't do! Got my BA in Radio, TV, and Film, owned my own business for a while before moving to Japan for 4 years to teach English. Spent 3 weeks in oz a few years back, loved it so much I knew I'd be moving there after my contract in Japan was up! I'm currently a bartender and I LOVE it (my one cool trick is pouring rainbow shots, so heeeeey), and I'm on a work and holiday visa for the foreseeable year (get into Melbourne on August 10th). Looking to find someplace to call home and immerse myself into becoming a Melbournite... Melbournian? Melbs local! I'm no stranger to the city, LOVE it. As a Californian, I know all about fire season and droughts, so no worry about being Eco-conscious here! I'm clean, organized, and very self-aware. Not a water waster haha! I highly respect quiet and alone time, but love a few beers and a night out, or sharing a home-cooked meal (I like to bake...I hope you like to eat). My go-go dancing days in Osaka might be behind me but I still know how to have fun, whether in a group dynamic or by myself. If you wanna settle in for a movie night or games and beer then I'm there! I've just learned how to make a mean egg foo young, and my butt has a costco card so heeeeeey ya'll live-in bartender with perks here! :D Full disclosure: I'm coming into the country without a job (only so much you can do online!) but I have more than enough funds for several months to cover the lease, and I plan to hit the ground running and find employment asap! I'm super chill and laid back, tidy and organized (but not sterile), and responsible with the timely payment of bills and rent. Mature responsible person very good at adulting here! -I need a place with internet access -Private, furnished room -Short stay (~3 months) with room to increase stay (I shouldn't sign a longer lease if I can't find employment first, right? :D Hell if you know a place hiring then I'm down to sign a year lease!) I've been around, held all kinds of jobs, have all kinds of hobbies, and love all kinds of people. I'm animal-friendly (4 cats, 2 gerbils, and 2 box turtles here in Cali!) and super easy-going; also open to more places than those general suburbs I've listed, and willing to pay more on rent than I've listed if bills and internet are included, just an FYI. :) If you think we'd mesh well, I'd love to be your housemate! :) Any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to ask! I'm an open book :)
Hi, I have just moved from France to experience Australia. I am an IT professional and actively looking for a job (negotiating currently). I am searching for open-minded housemates who enjoy life. If you want to know more about me I'm happy to share a coffee with you. Cheers Dino

I'm escaping the Sydney rat race and moving to Melbourne! Arrive in Melbourne on 24th July. I've got some friends in Melbourne, but looking for a house where I can make some more! I'm typically pretty busy with work, trying to get to the gym, and trying to cook healthy dinners, but always partial to a sneaky glass of wine or beer every now and then, and it would be cool if my future housemates were the same! I want to find somewhere I can call home, relax, chat about the day/life, but also respect others privacy. Oh and I can totally clean up after myself. On a weekend I'm into live music, catching up with friends, getting out in nature (are there beaches in Melbourne?!), and perhaps a beverage or two.
I'm a clean, independent and mature person whom is also happy and sociable. I work full time and respect other people's privacy. Im Australian and I enjoy outside activities in my spare time :) preferably looking for somewhere close to Flemington racecourse :)
I've been in Melbourne 4 months now and am looking for a place to call home. I am currently studying full time, and work most days i'm not at uni. Tidy, clean, quiet - but enjoy socializing.
I'm doing a PhD in physics at the University of Melbourne. Australia is a very generous country so they decided to give me a salary/scholarship, which means that I can always pay my rent and bills in time, without having to rob any Woolies. In my spare time I like to do sports (running, swimming, yoga, soccer etc), annoy people around me playing my guitar, read books and travel as much as I can even if that just means going for on an adventure to the nearby pub. This is my 5th year living abroad in shared houses, before coming to Melbourne I lived in Ireland and Canada, so I am an international expert in the art of sharing a house. I value a lot the relationship with my housemates, so I'm looking for a bunch of people I can feel comfortable with, inside and outside the house, sharing dinners, drinks, lazy afternoons and any random moment life brings about. Luckily I also know how to respect others' privacy so I promise I won't follow you inside the bathroom. Living in a clean house is fundamental for me, so I hereby solemnly commit to put my efforts in keeping the place tidy and neat, and cleaning regularly.
