Hi! I’m a 20 year old recent graduate looking to team up/ join an existing share house in Canberra! A bit more about me though: - I have a Bachelor of Criminology - I’ll be working full time as a Security Analyst - Not much of a partier although I do love a few drinks now and then. Much more of a coffee drinker, and I love a good chat over a cup. - Self admitted candle addict - I’m my spare time I love to watch Netflix, read and eat. Hoping to hear from you soon ☺️

I'm tidy and sociable, I know how to cook, and I can make a decent cocktail or two. I’m moving to Canberra at the end of Jan to start a full-time APS job. Looking for a place in central Canberra. I’m relaxed and friendly, but respectful of others and their space. I’m pretty laid back and enjoy hiking, cooking (I can make a mean spanakopita), TV dramas, comedies, reading, photography and sport. I also love a good wine or G&T every now and then. I'm able to mostly furnish a place with a lounge suite, TV, bed, washing machine, cutlery, crockery, and some cupboards/bookshelves if required. I will also be bringing a small espresso machine with me. If you’d like to know anything else about me, feel free to ask!

Looking in: Manuka, Kingston, Griffith, Forrest, Deakin, Barton

Hi, as well as being a career public servant, I'm a quiet country guy from northern NSW. I'll be working compressed hours so that I can get back to the farm as much as possible. I'm a relaxed sort of person - I don't mind a chat and I'm equally happy to respect privacy and personal space. I'm tidy and committed to chipping in to help clean up. To be honest, I'm a pretty average cook but a healthy eater. For those weekends I'll be in Canberra, I'm looking forward to enjoying the green space and catching up with friends. But I also don't mind binge-watching trashy TV:) I’d prefer to be within walking distance of work in Barton.

Hi, we are a couple looking to potentially team up for a share house. A lot of pet friendly properties are larger in size and there isn't much sense in us renting an entire place just for our puppy. We are easy going people and our main hobby is watching TV shows and basketball. We definitely aren't party people :P Both of us are clean and prefer to live in a tidy space, we only ask that we all chip in to keep the shared living spaces tidy. Jess currently works as an accountant at a law firm and Tim is a carer. If you would like to know more about us or are interested in a team up don't hesitate to ask us. :)

Teneale

Looking in: Griffith, Barton, Kingston, Forrest

Hey, My name is Teneale, I'm from Sydney. I'll be moving to Canberra next year for a graduate job, starting on the 4th Feb. It would be great if I could move in before then, but I could be persuaded to hold back on moving until the 11th. I'm friendly, easy-going and always happy to help out around the house - I don't have experience living in shared rental accomodation. BUT, growing up, I travelled a lot for sporting competitions and shared a room with different individuals. I'm also deaf, with a cochlear implant in one ear, so loud voices/noises late at night or early in the morning, wont bother me at all! Also, for those of you who are shift workers, I always take care to make sure be as quite as possible when necessary (growing up with sister who is a Dr. has that effect) I'm not super keen on big social events, but I do like to go out for a coffee/drink every now and then. I mainly enjoy spending my time watching various television shows and movies, including Game of Thrones, the Avengers and cheesy RomComs on Netflix.

Hi, I'm Nancy and I'll be moving to Canberra (from Sydney) in Feb to study Honours at ADFA - looking for a room in the inner North or South Canberra. I've got sharehouse experience and good rental history. I'm fairly introverted and respect housemates' privacy, but as I'll be new to the city I'm quite keen to socialise and have a chat and share meals and a drink when we're all free. I'm excited to explore walks and hikes around Canberra, and hoping to improve my cooking and baking skills. I'm tidy, a non-smoker and don't have pets (but more than happy to share with pets!).

Hi, I'm in my mid-30s and work F/T. I'm looking to move into an unfurnished room with plenty of space, and also a little storage space. I'm tidy and clean, chatty, but respectful of others' space. Fairly busy and independent, love keeping active and getting outdoors when I can (walks & hikes, trips to the coast), although I do have a horrible penchant for TV when the Bachie is on. Looking for house mates of roughly the same age and who also work F/T, and it is most important to me that we all click and also have the same living expectations. If it sounds like I would fit your household, get in touch! Gabby

I'd like to live with other young professionals who are keen for friendly chats (current events or Game of Thrones both work) and some shared meals. I like to cook, keep active, play a bit of music and get out and explore. Flatmates that would be keen to hike on the weekends (or share their local knowledge) would be a bonus!
