Anja

Looking in: Manuka, Kingston, Griffith

I work fulltime on in IT and am looking for a nice place to stay instead of staying at a hotel longterm. I am from Brisbane and would be going home every second weekend or so. I am happy to share a glas of wine and a chat but also have my own life. I have shared before and know the importance of cleaning up after myself.

I'm back in Canberra (studied and worked here previously) after several years overseas. Got lots of good travel stories. Aiming to cycle to work at Black Mountain most days, like to be active, and usually out and about on weekends. Environmentally conscious, like my own space but also social and ready to have a chat. Ideal place would have (in decreasing order of importance): awesome housemate, carpet, sunshine, views, gas cooking. Love cats so that would be an amazing bonus!

Hi there, Relocated to Canberra from Auckland at the beginning of August and looking for a house / flat share with easy going professional(s). I'm not completely fixed on location as I will need to orientate myself a little more, therefore, I am only looking at a relatively short-term at present, but if it is the right place I will be more than happy to stay longer. Thanks, Mark

Nicephore

Looking in: Karabar, Griffith, Fyshwick, Deakin, Manuka, Queanbeyan

Hey all, I'm pretty much a "what you see is what you get" kinda guy, polite and friendly by nature, I'm also clean tidy and respectful. I love travelling and the outdoors, meeting new people and having great conversations. Having said that, I also understand and respect the need for privacy and expect the same of others. I've moved to Canberra for a career change and now that I'm settled in my new role I'm looking for a nice and convenient place to live. I'm a Frenchman in my early 30s and have been in Australia for about 6 years now, but in Canberra just a few months. In my spare time I like reading, exercising, watching Netflix or playing video games, listening to music or just generally socializing with friends and meeting new people. I also love skiing and the mountains (especially in Europe and Japan), I speak fluent French and English and a little bit of Spanish (and a few words in Japanese) and I'm always up for practicing. That's really all I care to say as I'm that type of person you'll "get" by meeting in person rather than just reading about me preaching about myself. Happy to answer any questions though. All the best! Nic

Lauren

Looking in: Manuka, Canberra

Okay so a bit about myself, I have lived in share housing for almost 3 years now, so I definitely know the drill. I’m 19 years old, I work as a dental assistant in Manuka, normally Monday - Thursday & Tuesday - Friday. I’m looking for a second job for nights and weekends as I’ve recently just left my bar job. So normally I’m pretty busy working 7 day weeks. If I’m not working I go to my parents house in bredbo NSW, (45mins from Canberra, which is where I’m from). For fun I like to hang out with friends, eating, movies, drinks all that kinda stuff! I do keep to myself quite a bit when it comes to share houses, just because I’m normally so tired from long hours. So you’ll normally find that I like to be in my room chilling out watching Netflix. I guess what I’m really looking for in a home is just a clean environment to be honest. Xo Lauren

Hey everyone I'm Sunil and I am due to start work as a public servant in the beginning of February in Canberra. I'll be relocating from Perth and am looking for a place to stay in as soon as possible. I don't have any specific preferences when it comes to housemates and open to stay with anyone. A little bit about me, I enjoy watching and playing sports including tennis, soccer and cricket and up for a jog or a gym session throughout the week. I am working towards being an okay cook (currently a little hit and miss with my cooking) and am willing to do the occasional cook off with my future flatmates. Apart from sports and cooking, I am a bit of a book worm, enjoy playing board games as well as watching TV shows and movies on Netflix and I do the occasional binge watch when I have the time. I am clean and organised and am very considerate to privacy and downtime when needed. I don't consider myself an extrovert but nonetheless like to socalise and spend time with friends rather than spending all my time at home. Lastly I would like to have the occasional dinner and drink with future housemates and I would love to be friends rather than just another person living on the premises. Hope to meet some of you soon!

Hi. I'm moving from Sydney to Canberra with work in August and looking for a good home to share. I'm 41 and work 8-5ish. Weekdays I train a few times before work and like to chill at night, either on my own or happy to cook and chat over a meal. Weekends I'll likely be exploring my new town, or on my bike. Happy to hang out sometimes on the weekends if you're into similar things, but I'm also happy in my own space, or hang with the couple of mates in ACT already. I have my own furniture and can bring as much or as little as needed, like to keep things tidy & clean, and am an experienced flatty so am considerate with noise, chores and all the shared stuff. Canberra is a long term move, so I'm looking a longer term stay.
