Kim

Looking in: Narrabundah, Forrest, Deakin, Acton, Russell, Barton, Yarralumla, Braddon, Kingston

Hi, I am Kim and I am relocating to Canberra to start an exciting new job in the arts industry. I am a very creative person, and have travelled a lot over the years, and so I tend to get along with people from all walks of life. I am looking for friendly and easy going house mates, who are independent, yet enjoy a chat. I am used to living in share houses in Australia and overseas, and I am cooperative and responsible in regards to the usual household duties and bills. I hope to find a place this or early next month. At home I like to play a little guitar and sing (not at unreasonable hours) and hope to find a music friendly place. In my spare time I enjoy craft or art, cooking, yoga, and going for long exploratory walks. I have plenty to occupy me in my spare time but I do enjoy the occasional shared meal and a chat.

I am a friendly and easy going person, who always has a big smile on face no matter what. I am also very clean and tidy so home is always looking nice and cozy to all. I am 36 yo, full-time worker and originally from Brazil. I have been living in Sydney in the past 5 years. I will be moving down to Canberra due to a new job opportunity. I am a Childcare Educator who has been working over 8 year's in the Industry. I enjoy my friend´s company and love to make new friends from around the globe. I love also going out to dance but also enjoy quiet moments at home or sharing meals with one or two glasses of Moscato wines. I respect other's privacy and really understanding what does that mean. I really enjoy myself watching movies or Netflix/Foxtel series and adding some popcorn on top of that. It is the best combination ever. I love listening music to dance or calming myself down after long days at work. It is such a nice own therapy. I love simple things in life and they are indeed the most valuable for me. I highly appreciate places/people that brings peace and good energy into my soul. Its just matters a lot to me. I love working with children. They are such fabulous little angles full of joy and kindliness. Please if you feel I can fit myself into your place do not hesitate to contact me anytime you need. Look forward to hearing from you soon. Kind Regards, Gisele

Hi Flatmates, Joss H (housemate 2015/2016) said I am "Fun, easy going and relaxed. Love to laugh but also very responsible and well mannered". 2015/16 I was living back home in Western Australia working as an Events Manager but have made the move back to the east coast to attend Canberra University and work part -time in HR. I have been staying with family in Murrumbateman while I found my feet here in the ACT but the commute is starting to take its toll. In Wa I was living with some married friends one of which works in Brazil so one minute it was a girls house and for every second month its a mixed house (I'm adaptable). After growing up in Margaret River I enjoy a good vino instead of a night out.My old housemate Emma D always calls me up for a laugh and a good dance around the house when I'm home. I love cooking dinners to catch up with my housemates but also enjoy a good balanced household where everyone does their own thing. If you think you could live with an outgoing, caring human, send me a message. Looking forward to hearing from you. *I have plenty of references if needed.

Hey there, I'm originally from Singapore and have been living in Sydney for the past 4 years. I will be relocating to ACT for work in 2 weeks, and I work in events/ hospitality so am fairly sociable, but at the same time I really enjoy my alone time. I've never been to Canberra before so would need some help with settling in, because of the short lead time I am pretty anxious! Any help would be great. Thanks in advance!

Need a place to live for my internship from 14th July - 16th of October. I already have a houseshare but I keep looking for other options from 14th August - 16th Oct! The dream location will be Yarralumla (close to the Embassy). I love food: both cooking and eating, I am super sporty: must run or go to gym or any other workout almost every day. I like hanging around, I am a sociable person but not a must that the roommate shares the same. Respect to each other and loyalty are the most important features! I'm pretty outgoing, like get to known new things. I also fancy late night evenings with sunset and early calls.

I'm a friendly, easygoing, clean and tidy, social housemate with lots of share housing experience. I want to live in a house where housemates enjoy the occasional dinner and drinks together, and are able to have friends over occasionally, but who are also independent and respectful of each other's space. I work in the APS, studied law and arts at uni, and love hiking, yoga, cooking, reading and squash. And more! I like to be busy, to travel and meet new people, and to explore new interests. I'm looking to meet like-minded people to share a house or apartment with, in a location cycling-distance to Barton, and am flexible in my moving dates. Ideally the available room would be large, and preferably with its own bathroom (but not necessarily needed).

I consider myself to be clean, honest, considerate, courteous, responsible, capable, non judgemental and mature for my age. I get on well and feel comfortable with people of all ages and from all walks of life. I enjoy both my own time to rest and recharge as well as socialising when possible. I have been fortunate enough to secure an apprenticeship at the place I wished to work at near the Kingston foreshore. My job and its location are excellent as are my co-workers. We get on very well and like to get together and socialise occasionally. So I am happy, content, easy going and focused on my job and future. I just need to be able to find a place to share with like minded people, much closer to work, as soon as possible, in order to avoid the 3hr per day commute that has plagued me for the last 11 months (and my life would be almost perfect).
