Hi, I'm Casey. I'm 19 years-old and a full-time student at ACU studying teaching and arts, majoring in maths and minoring in literature. I work part-time in hospitality on weekends. I moved up from East Gippsland to Melbourne at the beginning of the year in order to study, so a country girl at heart. I'm friendly and love a good chat but I still respect other people's personal space. I'm clean, I know how to cook and I'm not loud. I'm more than happy to help out around the house with cleaning/cooking etc. I'm pretty easy going and enjoy reading in my spare time. Always down for a movie night. I don't drink or smoke, but love a good cup of tea or coffee. I'm looking for a place that is preferably long-term - 9+ months would be ideal, though the longer the better. Please feel free to contact me anytime :)

Hey there, I'm looking for a place to move into in mid-late December. I work as an Outdoor Ed Instructor and I'm away most weeks on school camps but then also teach PE part time. I like chatting with housemates but also respect that we all need our alone time. I love the outdoors - I surf, snowboard, swim and go to the gym I love sports - I play and go to the footy, enjoy cricket and work the Australian open I enjoy quiet nights at home, cooking (inc baking!) and walking along the river and through the park :) I'm also a Christian and I'm passionate about my faith. I don't mind living with Christians or non Christians but just ask that you respect my faith. I would really like some outdoor space to have a cup of tea and enjoy the sunshine. It would Asiago be super beneficial to be near a train line. I've had chickens in the past and would love them again :) Ive also lived with super hairy cats and dogs and that's not my fave! Hit me up if you want to meet up :)

Hey! New to Melbourne, commencing work as a doctor in Melbourne's northeast. Looking to live somewhere along the train line between the CBD and Heidelberg.

Will be pretty busy at work, but when off work usually either out eating, riding/running/swimming/rock climbing or studying.

Looking in: Toorak, Thornbury, Saint Kilda, Prahran, Ivanhoe, Brighton, Melbourne

We are looking to share with another couple. Ideally a large house with plenty of space and a garden. Happy to live 30/40 mins from the CBD to get an amazing place for the budget. We both work full time and are not party animals during the week... If you enjoy a glass of wine, BBQ and good conversation in a garden or brilliant living space let us meet and get to know each other. We both recently moved to Melbourne and have lived in Collingwood for a few months and now feel a bigger space would be better. Dan is an AV designer from the UK and I am Namibian working as a Travel Agent. In our free time we love design,camping, cycling and travelling.

Hey guys, I have just finished my Honours in Botany at La Trobe University and I'm looking to continue my studies with a PhD over the next few years. Seeking a share-house near uni but am open to suburbs a little further away and am flexible with the move date. I have lived in share houses since I was 20 and quite enjoy it when there is good chemistry between housemates. I have also owned and lived in my own home and have backpacked extensively through many countries including Greece, Mexico, Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia. Most recently, I spent a year in South America where I volunteered on farms, couch-surfed with many locals, and made a short film with students in Colombia. I used to party a lot but those days are well and truly behind me and Im looking for housemate who are on the same page. I still enjoy the occasional glass of wine. I like to keep things tidy and happy to clean, garden and chip in around the home. I dont mind a bit of a chat. Apart from uni, I work casually as a TV/Film background extra (been doing it for over 10 years) and I also help out a mate every so often with his furniture repair business. I stay fit by hitting the gym and riding my bike to get around. I like: Seeing the happiness in everyday life, simplicity, laughing, gardening, permaculture, exercise, Qi Gong, camping, tidy and peaceful atmospheres, equality, respect for one another etc. I get along best with open-minded, free spirited, positive, creative types who are self-motivated and passionate about what they do in life. People who are thoughtful and respectful are also highly favoured. I'm also very interested in starting a share-house with like-minded people if an opportunity arises. I have some furniture, including a queen bed, desk, small dining table, and a two-seater plus chaise lounge. I also have a top-loader washing machine and a huge 520L like-new fridge. Happy to store some of these items if they are not needed. Happy to answer any questions and I'm really looking forward to seeing what's out there. Cheers

Hello! I'm looking for a private room to rent, preferably located near a train station on the Hurstbridge line! I'm a very mature, level-headed person who has worked in a corporate environment for 4+ years. I'm currently working full-time as a business trainee in the public sector where I'm a Human Resources Assistant. I'm not into nor have I ever lived a loud or party lifestyle (I enjoy the occasional social drinks though!). I mostly keep to myself and live a quiet and pretty peaceful life, though still enjoying meeting new people and interacting with others from all walks of life! I don't smoke and am not a heavy drinker (never been drunk in my life! wow.) -- but have 0 issues with people who do (live your life how you want to, it's none of my business!) I've grown up in a bad home, so I'm very understanding and completely open and respectful of others and their circumstances! I'm half Thai / half Australian (a dual citizen!), my first language is English :)

I'm easy going, some times I'm out late a few nights a week, then I'll be home for several nights in a row as well. Up for hanging out with some all of the house mates at planned things and have a solid group of friends to maintain as well so I'm easy hopefully :). The only thing I want whereever I live, is secured parking (that will rule lots of you out I'm sorry guys), I have a new car and I want to keep it covered, I've made many compromises over the years to make sure it always had a roof over its head at least, if not in a full garage/underground spot. No dietry requirements, just don't really like fish, oh I have a coffee machine and am a bit of a coffee addict.

Hi! I'm Miriam, I’m 24 and I’ve just graduated from university. Currently living in Heidelberg, I’d like to move closer to the city and I’m looking for a socialable but respectful household. I enjoy spending time with my housemates over dinner, wine, movie nights etc but I also need my downtime to myself sometimes. So I’m definitely more looking for a home than just a place to sleep. I’m a pretty active and socialable person and I like to catch up with my friends over dinner, drinks or go on a night out. I’ve lived in houseshares for a few years now, and I know how to clean after myself but also don’t go crazy over a small mess as long as it’s not permanent. My current lease is over mid February and ideally I’d be moving between early and mid Feb. I have some furniture (couch, TV, some pots and pans and dishes, and my own bedroom furniture) which I can either contribute or sell. I’d like to find one or two people (preferably girls) to start a new household with or join in their place.

We are pretty chill, and keep our places clean. We aren’t hippy dippy (despite my dreadlocks). Non drug users (but don’t really mind if you are), we drink occasionally but definitely aren’t big on the party scene. We are massive NFL fans, enjoy going for a swim, riding BMX or hang out playing PlayStation. We would love to live with someone who is chill, clean and open to living with a couple (don’t worry, we don’t do publc displays of affection). We mostly keep to ourselves but are more than happy to have a drink or dinner with you!!
