Ashleigh

Looking in: Reservoir, Moonee Ponds, Glenroy, Oak Park, Coburg, Essendon, Pascoe Vale

I'm Ash, I'm 24 turning 25 this year. I work at Melbourne airport and would like to live closer to work and the city. I'm fun, bubbly and social but also love my down time and own space. I'm clean, tidy and respectful. I am a shift worker so my hours are all over the place. Would much prefer a housemate/housemates who I can become good friends with, rather than living with a stranger and the only contact is hi and bye.

Hi I'm an expat of the Hills in the Dandenong Ranges and have been happily living in town for the last 6months. I wanted to stay longer but the council has an issue with our landlord so we had to move out immediately. I'm on a mission to find an alternative ASAP. I love live music, camping, gardening, cycling, photography and I spend most of my week nights catching up with friends, wandering through parks, seeing movies or listening to some of the awesome local roots music in a cosy back street bar. I'm a professional at the share house thing and have references but most importantly, I'm respectful, tidy, honest and I pay up on time. I have a full time 8:30 - 5:30pm Mon-Fri job as an Inventory Controller & I'm gay but haven't been practicing for about 5yrs so not sure if it counts?

New to Melbourne. Living in shared accommodation with a lovely couple at the moment. We only agreed on a short term stay. I'm not 100% sure if I'm able to extend my stay at this stage.

I'm just generally happy almost always :) I'm very easy going and always happy to help out

Hey guys and gals, I'm a 20 something 9-5 professional looking for a place with two or less people. I'm interested in keeping fit and meditation.

Joanne

Looking in: Flemington, Kensington, Saint Kilda, Windsor, Prahran, South Yarra, Burnley, Richmond, Northcote, Brunswick, North Melbourne, Abbotsford, Collingwood, Fitzroy, Carlton

I am looking to move to Melbourne from Sydney at the start of May. I am from Ireland, and have lived in many houseshares before, so I know how it should work :) I've lived in Ireland, England, Germany and Canada and I love meeting people from other countries. I am clean, quiet and respectful of other people. I am very neat and always clean and tidy up after myself. I enjoy having chats with my housemates, hanging out, watching tv, going out for food, going to the cinema/theatre/events and I look forward to making new friends. I'm not a drinker or a big party-person, so there'll be no issues with me making noise or anything like that. I'm a massive Harry Potter fan, and for tv shows, I love Sherlock, Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, and all the Marvel movies. I also love dogs! Hopefully, some of these interests match with my new housemates! Please let me know if you have a private , furnished room available to rent and please consider me as your fun new housemate! :)

Jen

Looking in: Essendon, Flemington, Ascot Vale, Yarraville, Moonee Ponds, Footscray

I'm considerate and respectful. Like to have a friendly relationship with housemates but also some space. Believe that communicating well with the people you live with is the best way to make a household work. Respect other people's property and preferences regarding cleanliness. I have a very cute ginger cat named Abraham. I'm 40yo, working in health at one of the hospitals in Melbourne. Not super fussy about the location of the house, so long as it's accessible to the city. LGBTIQA friendly.

Hi there! I'm a postgraduate student at Unimelb, and I'm looking for a private room, but I'm open to sharing a room with the right person. Looking for something that's close to public transport - this is pretty important to me. A furnished room is preferred, as I haven't got furniture with me. Move-in date is flexible. I do have to study a lot, so I'll need a quiet place because I'm one of those people who just can't study with noise :( but in my downtime I'd love to chat and have a laugh with my flatmates! I'm looking to make friends and not just to fill a room :) I'm a very positive and friendly person. I love a good laugh and enjoy dad jokes/puns/memes :P I keep my stuff (and the house) neat and clean. When I'm not studying I'm reading, or watching TV shows or movies. Huge cricket fan, and will watch and enjoy pretty much any sport :D I'm new to the city so I'd also like to explore the place but haven't really got round to it yet haha! I hope I've covered everything (these things are hard to write!). Please message me if there's anything you'd like to know :) Cheers, Ally

Hi there! We are two Argentine friends looking for our next home :) I work full time, I teach Spanish in my free time, love being outdoors and aspire to visit every available cafe in Melbourne. Flor is studying to become a chef (expect delicious meals) and working part time. We both enjoy the occasional glass of wine while watching Netflix and would love to live with somebody from a different culture! We also love travelling around Australia and are happy to add a new member to our crew to tag along! We are both pretty sociable but also respect and value each other's time and privacy. We appreciate cleanliness and tidiness and will always strive to achieve the best possible shared-living habitat :)

Josh

Looking in: Clayton South, Clayton, Oakleigh, Hughesdale, Oakleigh South, Ascot Vale, Kensington, North Melbourne, Caulfield, South Yarra, Richmond, Saint Kilda, Brunswick, Footscray, Flemington

Hello, my name's Josh! I've been couch surfing in Melbourne for a month after moving interstate from NSW and would really like to settle down and find a permanent home. I'm a first year science student studying full time at Monash Uni. I'm a friendly, easygoing, sociable guy but am also respectful of others' privacy and while I'm up for a chat I also enjoy some downtime like anyone else. I realise the responsibilities involved in living with others and am a very clean, tidy and reliable person, contributing my fair share to ensuring the place is in good condition and rent is paid on time. Lover of all animals and would be totally down to live with pets of any kind. Am open to living with any and all kinds of people but would prefer to live with other students or people around my age. As I'll have uni nearly everyday it's quite important that public transport is nearby, and it would be especially amazing if I could find a place close to the Clayton campus. Also open to start/join a group of others looking for housing - send me a message if you'd like to know more about me or if you have a room available and thanks!

Shaek

Looking in: Carlton, Flemington, Camberwell, Brunswick

Hey there, the names Shaek and I have Fijian-Indian heritage and I am currently living in Sydney's west and plan to move to Melbourne around the 5th of May for a year (or so). I currently work full-time in Sydney and will be doing an interstate company transfer so income is not an issue. Being the eldest of 5 children, I have a strong understanding of personal space as well as overall cleanliness and am very responsible and dependable. Majority of the time I like to keep to myself but am always up for a laugh and love listening to people talk. I am known to be an extremely relaxed and laid back person so I can assure you that there will be no conflict over mundane issues. I am an avid reader and often tend to lock myself in the room, so some days you may not even hear a peep. Fishing is another hobby I seriously enjoy as well as eating at places with great reviews, socialising with friends, having a drink or 10, watching movies and other things. Although I am only 20, I believe I am able to get on with people of all ages and back grounds as I like to think I am quite open minded and have been told by many that I have great mannerisms and professionalism. Thanks for reading!

Hi, I'm Anton, a primary school teacher, surfer (who gives housemates free surf lessons) and laid back guy who's looking for a new place. I have a teaching job in Keilor East and my landlord of my lovely Brunswick lease for the last two years is renovating and then selling! I hit trivia once a week in Collingwood with friends and enjoy eating out and cooking up awesome food. I have a cat too that comes with references from my current and former housemates. Would love to be part of the house. Also can contribute furnishings too if you'd like. Please message me or give me a call. Thanks, Anton

Saaga & Luke

Looking in: Port Melbourne, Carlton, Yarraville, North Melbourne, West Footscray, Footscray

Hi! We are Luke (Aussie) and Saaga (Finnish), a couple in our 20's looking for a great new place to live. Luke works in a school in Sunshine and I am a future student and work part time in a café. We have lived in a share house before (I think there was about 18 of us at one point?) so we are very laid back and get along well with different people. I love cooking and baking so you'll probably see me in the kitchen quite a lot, we both enjoy having a chill time with our flatmates and sharing a conversation but also like to have some alone time. We are very respectful, tidy and clean up after ourselves (especially me, and Luke as well if I kick him in the butt). Whenever there's a chance, we like to go out and enjoy what Melbourne has to offer, especially music scene, so pretty much always down for a good gig and couple cold bevvies! We're not total party animals though so we go out and have fun and come home to rest, not party. We are more than happy to tell more about ourselves, so if anythings bothering you just shoot a message! Would appreciate a nice little (or big, size doesn't really matter too much as long as we both fit there) furnished room with a bed big enough for two to crash, and of course a chill environment to live in. Ready to move in asap when we find the right place.
