ATTN: LANDLORDS/ AGENTS PLEASE NOTE I AM LOOKING FOR EITHER A 2 BEDROOM UNIT/HOUSE TO RENT FOR MYSELF AND MY SON IN OR NEAR MONBULK OR TO TEAMUP IN A 3-4 BEDROOM HOUSE WITH ANOTHER PERSON WHO WILL GO ON THE LEASE WITH ME. I AM NOT LOOKING TO SUBLET. Hi I am a single mum, with an 8 year old son. We are looking to share a fabulous large house with an empathic, easy going, intelligent, tolerant, mature and stable person, or single parent and child. I’d prefer to stay reasonably close to Monbulk for my son. WE HAVE ALREADY VACATED AND HAVE TEMPORARY ACCOMMODATION ONLY UNTIL MID NOVEMBER. After living alone for several years, I was very dubious about whether my son and I could adjust to sharing with others. However, after the past 7 weeks sharing a house, (with shared living room and bathroom), after the initial adjustment, it has been great. I have even started to enjoy doing housework a bit more. Being accountable for a shared space is a good motivator. And I think my son has benefited from the interaction with another adult. Sadly, this place is being demolished on 19th November, and my housemate is moving to the Peninsular to be close to his daughter. My son has special needs, (nothing too serious) and requires a stable, calming enviornment. I'm happy to share more about that privately with the right people. He is very outgoing, and friendly, loves interacting with adults and younger children. He loves Beyblades, gemstones, singing and dancing and being a ninja. He watches T.V. but is not allowed Xbox, video games, iPads etc. We'd love to live somewhere with enough space for a trampoline, either outside or a small indoor one. I’m looking for a large place with a good layout e.g. 2 living areas, 2 bathrooms, and good storage space that is easy to keep tidy. Would also like some outdoor space. And a small outdoor storage shed, or space to erect a small shed. I respect other people's privacy, but I am sociable and a good conversationalist. I spend a lot of time reading, researching, listening to the radio and podcasts. I have a background in Sociology and gender studies, personal care and student rights work. I am interested in many things especially culture, society, philosophy, psychology and even pointless trivia. I am fair-minded and considerate of others. I am interested in other people, without being intrusive. I accept people from all walks of life, all ages. With the exception of racist, misogynist, homophobic or people with very right-wing views. I'm currently on a pension with carer's allowance, and studying part-time, and doing some casual work. I am financially stable and always pay rent and bills in advance. I like things to be be agreed in advance, fair and reasonable. I have an impeccable rental history, long tenancies, and always pay my rent in advance. I have no debts, and am not fond of overt consumerism. I vape nicotine, and currently am smoking tobacco occasionally. I recently had a lapse back onto the tobacco. But am working my way back to just vaping again. I'm fine with cigarette smokers , but only outside, and away from my son, and someone who disposes of butts properly, keeps cigarettes, ashtrays etc out of reach please. I don't drink or take drugs. I’d prefer to share with same, but I'm tolerant of occasional drinkers, but no drugs please. I'm not a green thumb or very handy person. So would like a low maintenance property and/ or gardener included. Even better, I’d be open to share costs to hire a gardener and/or cleaner on a monthly basis. Also happy to negotiate fair rent in return for home help. Looking for someone who works part-time or full-time. Or another single parent with a child. Honesty and clear communication is a must. Also someone who understands children and what behaviour, content etc is appropriate/not appropriate for an 8 yo child is important. My son would love a pet. I'm not ready to get one yet. But he would love to interact with and help care for your pets, if you have any. Hope to hear from you soon!
I'm a 26 year old french man coming to Australia on the 29th of november. I'll get a job almost as soon as I land in Melbourne and i'm looking for a place to stay, at least for some weeks, if everything is fine, for some months. I'm a quiet guy, always ready to help. I'd say I'm fluent in English, native French, and I can understand German. I'm really sportive but I also love to spend some time on my computer. Interested in everything, I love to discover new things. I got no Australian phone number right now, but i'll get one as soon as possible when I'll be there. I look forward to hearing from you.
I could not pin down exactly why I'm good to live with yet I will say that every person I've ever lived with have all become friends and remained so long after the sharing of a home. - Brenden
I’m a 35 year old professional woman that is easy going and easy to live with. While I’m a social girl, I’m a non drinker and am not looking for a party house. I work pretty hard as a restaurant manager so my shift patterns vary. I have friends and family in the area and spend a lot of time with them. I love the outdoors and love pets so am flexible with furry flatmates. I’m clean and tidy and enjoy my own company. I have references available if you would like. I love travelling and try to get away as often as my schedule allows...wish it was more flexible but that’s life! If I sound like someone you could share with please feel free to get in touch. I’m flexible with move dates as I’m living with family.
I'm a 26 year old Male looking for somewhere to call home for the next 6 months. I'm a seasonal firefighter who has just returned home for Canada to begin work on Mt Dandenong in late November. I'm a clean, easy going guy who enjoys a bit of banter and keeping fit. I'm looking for some easy going housemates that love life as much as me. Insta: mitchjbrown
I am easy to live with. I am quiet, I clean up after myself and enjoy both my own space and a bit of company at times. Not really much of a party animal. My hobbies include computer games, movies, reading and gardening.
I am a friendly, respectful and considerate person, who has had many share house experiences, I take pride in my environment, happy and willing to contribute to the upkeep of the household. I'm very easy going & I welcome upfront communication to avoid unnecessary disharmony. I have a 3 year old, male, desexed & well natured indoor cat who will be coming along with me. I appreciate personal space and enjoy my own time and respect that of others - as well as I am open to getting to know new people, having a chat and sharing interests. I am part time working in customer service. In my own time, I enjoy music, singing and dancing, anything in the great outdoors, spontaneous and new adventures & love a good movie, comedy, action, an eclectic range of different interests. I don't smoke inside, bad enough habit as it is. I am environmentally & energy conscious so as much as humanly possible, I don't abuse life's privileges.
I am from Sydney. However, 2018 has been the year that I have called Melbourne home. As a housemate you can expect someone who is tidy, has the kitchen smelling fragrant with a variety of different foods. Also I am pretty quiet and usually don't go to bed very late. I have done some travelling outside Australia and it has really made me appreciate what incredible nature we have here, and just a short drive from the city! Therefore, while I am in Melbourne, I want to explore as much of the surrounds as possible and get to know Victoria. I am already in love with the Dandenong Ranges and I know there are many other places close to Melbourne that I want to explore. For me, it's important to have a connection with my future housemates so that we can work on creating a harmonious living space. This also ties in to how long I want to stay in my new location. It can all be worked out on a case by case basis, but for now, I am prepared to give a 6 month commitment. Get in touch, because we won't know how it may work out until we meet. Thanks :)
I'm an extremely approachable and tidy person. I have two 7 month old cats who are inside cats, however, I'm open to buying them an outdoor enclosure for when I am at work. I work at Mcdonald's full-time, I'd usually be working 10am-6pm, Mon-Fri. I graduated high school last year and moved to Victoria, I am not currently studying but I am looking to do something online in the future.
Hey there, Firstly, I'd like to start by saying that I have a dog. Her name is Oakey and she is a Golden Retriever Labrador cross. She is 3 years old. She is my entire world. Oakley loves people and wants to be everyone's friend. Oakley is an outside dog, so she requires a secure backyard. Although, she needs some space, the property doesn't have to be huge as I take her for a big walk everyday. I understand that having a dog puts me at a great disadvantage as not everyone likes dogs and there are a lot of properties that aren't dog friendly, but i'm hoping there are people out there who don't mind the furry companionship! So, about me - I'm currently looking to share house with 1 or 2 others of a similar age to me. I work full time in Lilydale (shift work - I know...another disadvantage!) and am looking to move a little bit closer without being too close. I'm not in any great hurry, however i'd prefer to move before the weather starts getting too hot as the house i'm currently in doesn't have air conditioning. My interests include going to the gym, cooking and baking. I like to get out and about and visit cafes and restaurants and take Oakley on big walks and adventures. I'm originally from Gippsland and my family are still there, so Oakley and I occasionally go on road trips. Hoping to hear from like minded people soon. Ashlee
I keep my stuff tidy, I’m trustworthy and honest. Happy to keep to myself although more than happy to chill :) Very arty crafty person, and will keep that side of things neat and clean or away if needed... Have recently been through a bit of a tough time, am working full time now but only as of recently. No issues with giving payments but upfront bond is a struggle for me as of yet. Moved out of last residence, with no choice or preparation and very recent so crashing on a friends couch for the moment. If anyone is willing to assist me, possibly happy to receive extra per week maybe towards bond, or have any other suggestions to how I can go about things I would greatly appreciate it.

Hi, my name's Sandy. I'm a 23 year old female living in ringwood. Little bit about myself, I'm a physio student on my year off, going back to uni next year. I love anything related to health and exercise, love going to the gym/going on runs, playing basketball. Am a massive fan of music festivals, love to have a good dance with friends and strangers. Recently got into travelling and I absolutely love it. Also a big lover of all things nature, love the mountains and beaches and adventure.
Hate doing these “about me” How about we just meet up have a chat and go from there. Let’s be honest your discussion won’t be made from how cool I make myself sound on here. It’s all in the meeting stage So let’s meet
Thank you for looking at my listing! About me - I'm 19 years old, single and a student working a full time job! I'm studying a dual Cert. IV and Cert. III currently :) I own a dog (microchipped, desexed, vaccinated and trained) he's a border collie/staffy and is almost 2 years old. I'm very social, I'm usually out seeing friends a lot or going to local gigs, but when I'm at home I love my quiet time. I can interact with new people and have no hassle with it! I'd definitely love to make friends with my flatemates! I love music, mostly all genres! (Especially the 70s right now) I can sing and can play both piano and bass. I do a lot of arts and crafts as well. I watch a lot of drag queens, creators content, anime and Netflix. What it'll be like to live with me - I'll be respectful of the home and of every flatmate too! I'm sweet, smart and definitely can put my hand up for my mistakes. I'm honest and quiet as well. I love a clean home, will do anything I can to ensure I'm tidy and that the house stays perfect! Hate living in messy homes!! I'm flexible and can deal with changes too. Thank you so much to take the time to read my listing! I hope I hear from you soon. :)
