Looking in: Manuka, Kingston, Dickson, Braddon

I’m easy to live with. Great for a laugh and considerate of other people’s needs and feelings. I work 6 days a week and interstate nearly every weekend, self employed for 6 years organising events and juggling calendars. I won’t touch, use or eat your stuff and I would like the same in return, I’m proactive with the house needs like cleaning, gardening I enjoy and also supplies such as toilet paper and dishwashing liquid etc. I don’t watch much tv, I won’t get in your way, I also professionally house sit so I’m not always around but keen to have that stable base to keep my belongings at, I’d be wanting someone willing to take the weekly rent but fair with not charging me for utilities if I hadn’t been there for a few weeks. I’m an animal lover but currently have no pets Great with kids but none of my own just yet Wanting someone easy to get along with, good sense of humour, respectful of space and privacy, and clean and considerate too. :)

Hi all! I'm a PhD Candidate at the ANU originally from Melbourne, but have been in Canberra for >6 years. I've been interstate for a few months for work, and I'm looking for a place before I move back in to my permanent place on July 10. I am an easy going but clean housemate who works relatively long hours during the week but love relaxing on weekends. I'm definitely happy to be as social as you'd like - happy to have chats and cook together but am also okay if you'd prefer your own space. I'm pretty flexible with move in and check out dates. Let me know if you have any questions and am looking forward to meeting you! :)

Mark

Looking in: Woden, Manuka, Deakin, Curtin

Hi, I'm Mark. I will be moving to Canberra at the end of April from NZ. I was born and raised in Sydney and also lived in Melbourne, so it's a bit of a move home. I'll be working full time in sports (football) which will no doubt keep me busy during the week and on weekends. I'm pretty easy-going friendly type and consider myself pretty low maintenance. I try to keep active as much as possible although not as often as I'd like. I'm quite well domesticated and willing to do my bit when necessary. I have a family who will be staying in NZ and I will be travelling back periodically, usually during school holidays. I'll be working in the Deakin area, so places nearby would be ideal, but more important is finding the right place and people. So I'm flexible and open to offers. As I'm not bringing any furniture, furnished is preferred but again I'm flexible and will manage accordingly. I arrive in Canberra on 29 April and it would be perfect to have something organised by then. Any questions, please feel free to ask.

I like to think I'm pretty chill to live with, love being active and outdoors and can be a bit of a science geek.

Looking in: Reid, Manuka, Turner, Kingston, Braddon

Moved to Canberra this year for work as a high school teacher. Often I leave early and am home late. I have lived in shared housing for the most part of 8 years so I'm neat, tidy, clean and value respect of shared space. I enjoy quiet and personal time but also like catching up with housemates in conversation and some social time over a meal, coffee or wine on occasion. My interests include podcasts, the arts, yoga, walks, dance and netball. Often I enjoy going out for good food and wine, or live music and theatre, as well as exploring the city I live in. Non-smoker. Have a car so prefer off-street parking. Pool or proximity to water a plus. 12 month minimum stay, option to extend a bonus. MUST have a window in bedroom (I’ve seen a lot of new apartments without one).

I'm currently studying IR at ANU and am looking into moving off-campus into a two bedroom flat at the start of next year. I work at McDonald's Manuka (not glamorous, but it pays rent) and between that and studying I love to just chill out and read or watch Netflix. I'm fairly quiet and not the most social person, so the chances of me ever having more than one person over at a time is slim to none, but I love a good yarn and watching TV or playing board games (though I'm not very good). I'm very tidy and will always keep up my end of the cleaning deal. My budget is $200 a week (but less would be even better). Feel free to shoot me a message or text if you'd like to get to know me more before making the plunge! I'd prefer living with a friend anyway so we should get to know each other! :)

Hey there, I'm Sami! I have recently moved back back to Canberra after living in Melbourne for two years. Despite having just moved back I've decided I'm well overdue for some soul-searching travel so I am looking for a short-ish term rental (somewhere between 3 and 6 months but potentially longer - if you're looking for at least 6 months and I agree to this, I will of course stick to that!) while I save up and practice my Spanish before heading over to Latin America. I work in hospitality in the CBD/Braddon area so am looking for a house that isn't too far from there so that I can cycle as much as possible! I'm a big fan of plants so more than happy to help your indoor or outdoor garden thrive while I'm in your home! I am also very passionate about environmental sustainability and was about to go into my second year studying this at ANU before deferring so that I can travel! I'm great to live with because I am super accommodating! Ideally I'd love to be part of a more social house with a bit of a community feel but I'm also totally happy to be in a more quiet and reserved home too. I am tidy, respectful, always promptly clean up after myself, a non-smoker and always pay rent and bills on time. Please chuck me a message if you have any questions!
