Relaxed and tidy, and a bit of a dork. :) Looking for like-minded, pleasant to be around housemates who are happy to contribute to a nice home and don't mind a furry companion occasionally making an appearance in the communal areas (fluffy companion being my ragdoll cat). I work full time in Richmond, and enjoy spending my spare time practising yoga, going out for food, or relaxing at home.

Looking in: Abbotsford, Fairfield, Alphington, Northcote, Thornbury, Clifton Hill, Brunswick, Ivanhoe

I'm a 24 year old admitted lawyer who is currently working at the Fair Work Commission (please don't hold either of those things against me!). I'm looking for a place with one or two friendly people who I can hang out with but who also have their own things going on. I'm very friendly and usually up for a chat most nights. I enjoy being social and having people around, although on weeknights I prefer to keep it a bit more chill. I have recently received a beautiful vegetarian cookbook which I'm super keen to try out (although still very partial to a good steak). I love animals so am more than happy to live with any pets. I would prefer to live with flat mates who are similarly working full time. If all of this sounds good feel free to shoot me a message, I'd love to be a part of making a share house a home!

Kate

Looking in: Fitzroy North, Preston, Abbotsford, Fairfield, Kew, Northcote, Fitzroy, Thornbury, Brunswick, Ivanhoe, Collingwood

My name is Kate - I'm 35, a writer and therapist, as well as homely creative and foodie type with a penchant for good whole food and organic cooking. Currently I work 35 hours a week including Saturdays, Sundays and one late night. I am financial, rent and bill reliable, spacially aware, friendly, v.open minded and socially and emotionally intelligent. I love music, art, dancing - dancing in the kitchen while cooking and listening to music! I am a seasoned housemate and great communicator and like to think that I'm a pretty ace all-rounder when it comes to making it work. I am looking for a grounded, earth and human friendly home with a bath and veg patch (or patio for pots?) I can share with other similarly minded and hearted human beings, ideally with others who are 28 + and who enjoy an active, creative and clean-living lifestyle. Because of the nature of my work, I enjoy my home as a sanctuary of nurture, rest, creativity and peace, rather than a super-social party house, and a space where the TV is not the central focus. I could live on my own and have done in the past, however I am choosing to share right now as I appreciate and welcome the social aspects of living with others - it expands my horizons and it can be wonderfully supportive in key ways if it is the right dynamic. I am looking for a large and light filled room in such a home. Please let me know if you are keen and I'd love to swing by at a mutually suitable time. If you'd like to chat more please do not hesitate to contact me. Warmly, Kate.

​HEY YOU! Lovely human/s with a spare room/s in your house! Are you: - A houseproud person who loves to create a beautiful, clean, tranquil living space? - Someone who has their own life and likes their own space, but also likes a bit of a cosy family vibe at home, not just living in your bedroom but having occasional chats in th kitchen or over cups of tea or an occasional shared meal? - Someone who likes to have an occasional dinner party/backyard BBQ, but not a big partier/drinker? - Queer-friendly, left-leaning, and friendly? - Non-smoker? (or outside smoker only, but preferably totally non-smoking) Do you: - Love and/or make music and/or art? - Love houseplants maybe a little bit too much? - Not watch TV/not have a TV/watch some Netflix shows on occasion but mostly in your own room? I'm looking for a new home. I'm a little heartbroken right now as 3 months ago I moved into the perfect space, but then the landlord decided they wanted to make more money from it and kicked us out to get a family in :'( Moving into a pre-established home would be preferable, but I'm also open to starting a new house with cool peeps. The issue is that I want somewhere ASAP (Just have to give 2 weeks notice at my current place, but have to be out by Nov 23rd - preferably much sooner as the nearest train station is going to be closed from Oct 6th and that's gonna make life very difficult!!) as I am going to be very busy in late Sept/early Oct and I don't have a lot of time for househunting! At least one female/nb housemate preferred, but could be convinced for the right dude. I'd like to live with 2 people ideally, open to sharing with 1 or 3 but probably not more than that. ME: - 28yo female musician/artist/voice coach. Friendly, silly, queer, sings a lot and sometimes loud but mostly well, and only in reasonable hours/when you aren't home. - I like to be really clean & tidy and make a beautiful home full of art and plants and pretty colours. - Non-smoker. Not much of a drinker. Not vegetarian but not eating a lot of meat at home. - I am really busy and keep to myself a lot working on my music etc, but I lived in a house previously with dudes who just lived in their rooms and I hated it... I love living with people who are down for chats and cosiness and laughs together when our schedules line up. WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR IN A HOUSE: - Preferably an actual house, not an apartment. - Sunshine! - Close or otherwise convenient to grocery stores (I don't have a car, only bicycle/motorbike/PT) - OSP for my small motorbike (can just be front yard or small side path) - Either quite cheap rent (between $500-800/month) for just a bedroom, OR... - Open to paying $800-$1000/month for somewhere that has an extra sunroom/study/office space from which I could teach voice students (or a very large bedroom which I could split with a divider to make into a semi-professional space.) - I am also currently renting a studio in Brunswick which I teach from 2-3 days a week. If my new home is around $500 - 700, I could afford to just teach from the studio 4-5 days a week. If it's $700-800, I'd wnna teach from home a couple days a week (so I could get someone in to share the costs of the studio)... if it's $800+ I'd want to be teaching exclusively from home as I wouldn't be able to also afford the studio. If I sound like a good match for your home and vice versa, please get in touch!

Nathalie & Winona

Looking in: Fairfield, Alphington, Kew, Ivanhoe

I spent most of my 20's travelling solo around the world. Ive lived in communities and sharehouses for most of my adult life. Now I teach public speaking skills to kids in schools. Im also a Marriage Celebrant and Yoga Teacher. My daughter is with me 80% of the time. She is 7 years old (not 16 as the listing made me write). She is one of those well articulated awesome small humans who is a delight to live with. I like to keep communal areas tidy. I have a flair for interior design and I come with furniture. We are looking for a lively, family minded couple or a single parent with one (maybe 2) kids who want to 'do life' side by side. By that I mean, have our own space but also have the enthusiasm to create a thriving life.

Physicist, teacher, writer -- I work six days a week teaching physics and maths and creating curriculum for mentoring programs. I'm super organised and clean and I like a chill and tidy living space. I'm a gluten-free dairy-free vegetarian that recycles and tries to buy second-hand as often as possible. Hoping to adopt or live with a cat (though I also love dogs). Do not smoke cigarettes, ocassionally have a few drinks and when time permits I love to go dancing. I cook often, I play video games when I have a chance, am a big sci-fi/fantasy fan, and I am a sporadic part-time VJ. I love to be ridiculous whenever possible. Looking for only one other flatmate to live with (I've had my fair share of packed living situations), preferably a cis female or gay male and around the same age as myself as to avoid any dramas that can come about with potential attraction. If you love to have a sit down once in a while and wax philosophic, more the better. =) My favourite things include: dancing under the stars, cats, physics, astronomy, yoga, the ocean, and quality conversation. <3

We are a quiet, friendly couple looking to move into an affordable place closer to our respective places of work and study. We are both easy-going, amicable people who work hard and enjoy spending time with others and alone. My name is Tim, and I am a student at the University of Melbourne, majoring in science. I am from the northern Suburbs (Epping/South Morang) and am looking for a nice little place that will allow me to be closer to the university. Outside of uni, I work as a mathematics and science tutor at a boarding school. In my free time, I enjoy swimming/going to the gym, playing music (but not too loud!), reading, and watching good movies/TV. I am rather introverted as a person, and so I enjoy my privacy, but I am very friendly and enjoy a good conversation. Laetitia, my girlfriend with whom I am creating this listing, is from Switzerland, and she will be moving to Australia for work in early October. Her training is in the hotel industry. She is super friendly, tidy, and able to get along with just about anyone. She enjoys reading, long conversations, and watching good movies. If you are looking for two friendly, tidy, hard-working people to share a house, we hope we would make great housemates!
