Marcus, 26 years old, Australian born but also the proud holder of a British passport (thanks mum). I was born in Melbourne and have lived here most of my life - except for 6 months in Canada and 2 years living in Ireland. Recently returned to Australia to lay some roots down, I am now looking to move out into the outer city suburbs to make it easier to get to work and to be in amongst this great city. I am an English language teacher working in the CBD on weekdays, in the evening and on weekends I like to work on my writing. I value my own space, independence and am an introvert at heart, but I love socialising with people as long as they are genuine and easy-going. I have a low tolerance for facades and would expect respect and honesty from potential housemates. As I work in a social job, and am quite drained at the end of a day, I would like to live with others who respect the space of others while at the same time enjoying hanging out occasionally. I'm not after a party household and would enjoy living with others who are in their later 20's who want a mature and "got-their-shit-together" type to join their household. My main hobbies include reading, writing, photography (medium format film), and going to the cinema. I love visiting Nova Cinema, the Astor and the Kino in the city and try to go once a week (minimum). I'm also a voracious music lover and have it on most of the time - thank you Spotify! Expect to hear me singing along to Jens Lekman or Kings of Convenience at some point! Socially, an ideal night out would be a good dinner then plenty of red wine and chats, or seeing some live music. I also adore coffee and enjoy nothing more than sitting at a cafe with friends, chatting, or doing some writing while sipping on a strong flat white (Melbourne cliche!). Ultimately, I would be a very easy person to live with. I have been known to be very empathetic to others and a fantastic listener. I also respect the space and boundaries of others. I could be seen akin to the common house cat - quiet, clean, joining in socially at times, but fully independent (minus the fur-balls and litter tray dramas). I would be after a non-furnished room in a cosy house with lots of light. The vibe is important for me. Also want a room big enough for my bed, a desk, and all my books.
Friendly, respectful and very tidy. I'm studying a Bachelor of Graphic Design. I'm from regional Victoria and moving down to Melbourne for uni. I'll be studying full time and have a part time job. If I'm not at school or work I love to hang out on the weekend.
Hello all potential new friends! First of all, please excuse my giant face. Every photo I try to upland somehow turns into a slightly unflattering close up. Anyhow, I am a bubbly and positive human being, currently living on the Sunshine Coast (have a lease here until Feb 9th), looking to make a move to Melbourne as I'm missing the culture and liveliness of the city. I'm transferring from Sunshine Coast to Deakin to study full time starting March. I study sport and exercise science with a passion, and hope to find work in the industry once settled in Melbourne. I love spending my free time in the kitchen, or being active whether it be in the gym, doing yoga, dancing, walks, or general adventuring. Occasionally the couch gets the best of me and I may spend the day binge watching a series on Netflix. I like having a clean and serene space to call home. I do enjoy my "alone time", especially after busy days, but I would love to find a place to share stories and grow into friends with my housemate(s). My partner lives in Sydney, so I would be going away for a weekend every now and then, but I hope to find a place where he would also be welcome to stay over on occasion. I'd prefer to find a room that is already furnished, or at least partially, as my possessions are quite limited. My budget going up to $250 would hopefully include the bills and internet, or at least most of them, though this is negotiable depending on other details - so please don't hesitate to ask! My preferred length of stay of 3 months can extend to be significantly longer if the place is right, but I would like to see how I settle in in the area and if it is convenient for my weekly schedule. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or if you believe we might be a good fit. I look forward to hearing from you. Warmest regards, Anniina
Quiet couple looking for room/flat/apartment We are a Swedish/Australian couple in age of 24 & 26. Tyra from Sweden and Ryan from Perth. We are respectful and calm, no pets and no children. We have a healthy lifestyle and always up for a cheeky laugh ! Our economic situation is good so there won’t be any trouble with rent or bond. Ryan works at the post office and me Tyra works in a cafe in Richmond. What else? We are pretty laid back, like doing our own thing, spend most time outside, we both love our yoga and we both have traveled extensively to different parts of the world. We don't drink much often but it happens that we take a beer every now and then. (That doesn’t mean we judge or dislike people who like to party and even tho we are vegetarians, we have no problem sharing kitchen with meat lovers) Feel free to contact us so we can tell you more and maybe we can come past and have a look? Can move in ASAP. All the best Tyra and Ryan

Hi there I am a 23 yr old Canadian male whose mates are heading back to the home land, therefore I am on the hunt for another spot to live. I work full time at a venue in the CBD, majority are weekend shifts, however I work once or twice during the week as well. I am a friendly, clean and sociable individual who also respects and enjoys my own privacy.
We are friendly, clean and easy to be around. Have our working holiday visas so looking to make some money, have a good time and explore the country. From Finland and the United States so well traveled and cultural. We respect others and there space so I believe we would be a good fit for just about anyone.
Hi, I'm a full time hairdresser originally from Brisbane. I'm friendly, easy going, tidy, shy, respectful of others privacy, love to have fun, go on adventures and explore Melbourne. In my free time I like to relax, read, watch movies, play games and go to the gym. Hope to make lots of new friends :) Thank you! xx
I'm basically the best house mate ever 💁🏻 I am moving to Melbourne in the next few weeks and am looking for a room (ideally furnished - fine if not) in a house/apartment for 6 months until my friends arrive. I am a positive, honest and reliable person. I will be working a lot and I'm generally out and about all of the time. A garage would be ideal as I'm shipping my car over toooooo. Shoot me an email 🍑
My name is Michael, I'm 28 and work as a lawyer in the city. I've lived in a number of share houses in Brisbane, London and Melbourne over the past 8 years (I'm originally from Queensland). I'm a tidy, considerate and sociable housemate, and I always pay the rent/bills on time. I like to make the most of my weekends and get out to live music, comedy, sport, markets, cafes, go on road trips or visit the beach, or just spend down time at home watching a movie. I get on well with all walks of life and I always look forward to meeting new people!
Life-long Melbournian here, avid coffee drinker and movie buff. When I'm not working full time in the city I'm probably doing casual exercise, lying on a beach, reading, visiting galleries or out on the town with a few friends. I will point out every dog I see while doing any of this. Valentin is moving back to Melbourne from France to study a BA and work full time. He was previously on a working holiday visa but loved the place so much he had to come back! He is passionate about languages, foreign cultures, novels by Jack London, Korean films and Thai food. Aspiring teacher/writer/actor. Always down to catch up over some quiet beers, on the town or in the backyard, watch some movies, and teach you some French if you're keen. Bonus points if you have a cat or dog. Of course we are both clean, respectful, reliable housemates and anything else you could hope for. Let me know if there's anything else I can tell you :)
We are a group of Backpackers who are working full-time here in Melbourne to make enough money so we can travel again. That means that we save money where we can and the most expensive thing to do here in Australia is drinking and partying so that is why we stopped doing so. We are respectful people that loves a clean and tidy place to calm down after a hectic day of working.
hellooo!! I'm URGENTLY looking for a private furnished room (at least the bed, c'mon xD xD), possibly not more than 15/20 mins (tram distance) from the inner city. I'm looking to spend maximum 700$ per month. And yes, i can afford to pay rent always on due date. Don't worry! quickly about me life! I work in formal menswear in Collins st. and also (at the moment) live in the CBD but I'm starting to notice that I ain't saving much like this and also the place i'm living in ain't that nice and I gotta be a parent to my housemates who tend to do nothing at all in terms of keeping the place neat. So here is my urge to move out ASAP as i would like to avoid having to pay another full month here and prefer to give you the money and start being good housebros asap!! I don't really know what to say about myself but one thing i can tell you: I'm defenitely a clean and respectful guy and treat the house as if it was my own and my housemates as my best buddies. I don't like to party too much in the house and honestly I never do. :):) When I'm home most of the times you'll find me chillin, cooking, watching some Netflix (yes i can share it) or just reading something about how to become rich overnight!! hauahaha I'm not a party animal, unfortunately those times have gone and now i just go out with a couple of friends few times during the week for a chat and a drink. I used to be a smoker but I'm not anymore so if anyone smokes it won't bother me, but I don't smoke anymore. (100% honesty?? ok i sometimes allow myself one or two on friday/saturday night if i'm drinking something,but... anyway). if you wanna chat a bit with me please don't hesitate, i'm friendly!
I am clean, tidy, friendly. I am a good listener and I love to socialise but also independent and I do my own things. I love cooking, and working in the wine industry I sometimes bring home nice wines to share with my housemates. I enjoy spending a lot of time outside either riding my bike, or going to MUSO concerts, museums and exhibitions. I am coming back to Melbourne after three months of travel and will look for employment from day 1. Additionally I am in the process of setting up an ETSY account as I have a creative side and like to get creative in my free time (not noisy nor messy). If this sounds good feel free to send me a message! Ciao Giacomo
Easy going and social but respectful of other people's space and privacy. I've been living in share homes since 20, hence I know to pay bills on time and always like to keep clean and tidy. I have my own furniture and belongings and am looking for an unfurnished room. Current lease in Carlton North is coming to an end sadly after more than a year! I'm looking to find a new home around the inner north. Feel free to ask if you want to know anymore.
Hey there, my name is Giles. I'm a 34 year old kiwi who has been living in Melbourne for almost 10 years. I am a carpenter and I love my work. I work Monday to Friday and the occassional Saturday. During the week I'm up and out of the house pretty early to get to work by 7am. I own a Toyota Hilux and would really like to park it off the street at night as it has been broken into recently I'm pretty happy and cruisy. I love most outdoor activities like hiking and camping and going to the beach. I also love sport - both watching and playing. I think of myself as a fairly social person and do enjoy great company, although I'm far from a party animal (getting too old for that!). I am quite partial to having a few beers or wines with dinner or over the weekend. Cheers
Hi there! I'm an adventurous American guy from California, who works in a cafe full time and is planning on being in the city until August, maybe longer. I'm looking to live in a laid back place with a social roomie or two. I'm a travel writer and photographer and enjoy going for hikes/photo adventures on days off and a pint or two! Why not. I love a good chat, but enjoy my personal space as well. Hoping to find a place by the end of Jan/ beginning of Feb! Cheers :)

Hey guys I'm Blair, I'm a 26 year old female, originally from NZ but have been living in Queensland and London the last 3 or so years. I work full time on Collins Street so am fairly quiet during the week but enjoy socializing on the weekends; pubs, gigs, food markets etc (and the occasional netflix binge). I'm looking for a private furnished room (must be furnished), ideally long term from mid-late February. I've been flatting since I was 18 so I'm well house-trained; clean, tidy and aware of the need for personal space. If you have a room suitable I'd love to hear from you. And if you're still not sold, I work for an energy company so get sweet discounts on gas and electricity!
I'm a friendly and clean person who loves photography, creating short films, healthy lifestyle, blogging, entrepreneurship, gym, yoga, philosophy, vegetarian food, creating electronic music (with headphones haha), travel, design and generally always keen to cook nice food, enjoy a few beers and discuss how wildly novel it is to be alive and exploring this planet! I work in a restaurant in Fitzroy and pursue all sorts of creative freelance opportunities in my spare time.
Hey! My name is Mary and I am looking for a place in any of the northern suburbs. On my days off I like to swim, go to the beach. see a movie, get drinks, or find a new restaurant. My food preference is vegetarian. I studied environmental science and forestry and am currently taking a few casual courses. I work full time hospitality in the city, but my hours are not crazy late.. I usually finish around 10 pm. As for house vibes, would love to have friendly housemates but also understand alone time. I am pretty sociable so don't mind a chat with wine. I would love to help out with any plants or animals if you have them.
I am a full time working professional currently in the process of moving to Melbourne to start a new full time job. I'm a non smoker easy going and relaxed person, also very respectful of other peoples privacy and space. I am looking for a furnished room, please PM me if you have a spare room available or are looking to share with someone, thanks!! :)
Hey I'm Curt, 22 from England. Very fun, easy going Englishman working in Richmond in a sales job. Have been living over this side of the world for a couple of years now and would love to settle down in or around the Melbourne area. I enjoy socialising, chilling out after work with a few beers, playing pool, cards, paragliding, mountain biking, going to festivals and events! I'm always up for trying new things and I love meeting new people.
Hi Everyone, I am currently working full time in the CBD area and looking to team up with one or two people to find an existing share house around the CBD area. About me: I am a pretty easygoing, relaxed and friendly type of person who is neat and tidy and always happy to help complete jobs around the place, be supportive of my flatmates, be respectful of everyone, enjoys a good chat and happy to cook and share a meal with my housemates and don't mind staying in and having some quiet drinks with friends. I like pets, going to gym when I can and don't mind watching a bit of Netflix from time to time. Look forward to hearing from you, please send me a message if your interested!
Hello! :) My name is Avleen and I'm a 29 year-old female originally from Sydney. I'll be studying at Monash this year and am looking for an affordable place to rent in Melbourne. Ideally I'd like to be close to Clayton but am flexible as long as it's roughly within my price range. I'm friendly, easygoing and clean. I love having a good chat now and then over a tea or beer, and also enjoy time to myself. Thanks in advance and hoping to find somewhere great on here :) xo
Hi I'm Natasha. I am Canadian and this is my first year living in Melbourne. I work in the CBD in finance with normal to long hours, and sometimes weekends. I am generally a pretty responsible, quiet, and neat person. I also like to be social and have fun, but typically prefer to go out than to bring people over (although I don't mind if you do). I would ideally like to live with people around my age (I'm 29) who are easygoing and open to making new friends. Please do not contact me about sharing a room, I am way too old for that!
Hi I am Renee and I am 19 years old. I am hoping to find a new home to share with a group of out going open minded people around Prahan, St Kilda, CBD, Richmond areas. I am a trustworthy, tidy person who enjoys cooking, travelling and going out with friends. I am excited for a change of environment and to find a good home with fun, positive and understanding housemates who are needing a new companion in their home.
Hi there, I am mature, clean, considerate and polite. I am currently completing a masters degree in social work and psychological studies and I work freelance. I keep to myself for the most part, and I am also very health conscious and try to be positive about life. Happy to share a drink and chat too though. Looking for a girl or guy to share with 30-43. I am just looking for a safe, quiet and peaceful place to live and study while I finish a degree. I am a very respectful, gentle and considerate person. I have a complete apartments worth of some really great furniture; including a white stereo, Smart tv, lovely couch, and appliances. The best situation would be someone who is looking for a flatmate who is without these items. However, I am open to sharing 2-3 max if an ensuite is available - and can place my items at storage at the right price - probably $180-$220 a week to share. Otherwise $250-$270 in a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom house for rent is good ;) with the furniture. I have always payed my bills on time, and consider myself to be a reliable person, looking for the same. Looking for new lease 1 year+ or 9 months approx or more.
Hey, I'm Nikki and I just moved here from Brisbane to start a full time job. I am looking to share a flat with people who are easygoing and enjoy a laugh. I'm super clean and tidy and don't mind doing my share of all the house chores!
I am a friendly and fun New Zealander looking for a nice place to stay with some nice people. I easily make friends and love going out with them to explore or do fun stuff. In hospo so can cook, clean and am reasonably good at solving problems.
Hey! I'm moving to Melbourne On the 8th of February from New Zealand. I am a Film and Media Graduate who used to live in the US but came home to finish studying. I specialise mainly in Photography. I am a very trustworthy, kind and honest person. Someone you can rely on for a heart to heart or a glass of wine ;) I like to live a pretty chill life style but love to occasionally go out but never bring it home. In between working full time I plan to travel occasionally but still come home. Look forward to talking to all!
We are a mother and daughter looking for a great place to live in the area of Brunswick or Carlton areas. My daughter will be going to school in 2018 so I'm looking at school zone areas to move into. We are pretty busy and spend week nights at home and weekends out and about. I'm a full time teacher and mum who has been living on my own with my girl for quite a while. Would love to find a spacious, clean house with a chilled out person who enjoys a chat but also their own space. I go to the gym 3-4 times per week and enjoy bike riding and doing things with friends. Pretty normal really! Would need to 2 rooms. 🙂 Happy to start a lease too! Oh and we have a cat called Lolly Poppins.
Friendly, respectful and tidy I work full time 5:30am-7:30pm 5-7 days p/w so your personal space and privacy will not be an issue.
Hey guys ! I’m moving to Melbourne in February to start my masters in arts and cultural management at Melbourne Uni. I’m french (though I’m told I’m less of a grump than the average darling français), have studied in London and have since lived and worked between Berlin, NY and Paris. I’ve been living with flatmates for the past 4years, so I know the drill! Each flatshare went really well and I’ve become firm friends with those I shared with. Now for the shameless self promotion - I’m clean, easy going, respectful of others’ space and tend do my own thing at home, though I’ll also often be up for the occasional drinks/cooking/boogie-ing/movie watching together. You'll generally find me listening to music or reading up on les arts - though I'll also realistically be quite busy studying. I do go out a fair bit, so also always happy to team up - whether it's to galleries,to cafes, to dance to the world's best tunes, walk up and down markets or ride around by bike. I'm waiting for my phone card to be delivered, so haven't got a working phone - best find me on here or on facebook and I'll answer as soon as I have wifi. Let me know if you would be interested in meeting up Bestest and kindest !
Hello ! We are couple coming from San Francisco and Paris. I (Ethel) will be studying in Swinburne University and Kimo will be working. We will be in Australia for around 6 months. We are familiar with Australia as we were both living in Sydney but we are new to Melbourne. We want to make the most of Melbourne and ideally want to find flatmates who we can enjoy with and not just live in the same place. We are clean and tidy and lots of fun on the evening and week-ends but we also like to chill. We enjoy seeing live music, travelling, Kimo likes to cook and we are respectful of the place. Now let's answer the question in everybody's mind : we do not fight :), we've been together for 3 years and we are not one of those annoying couples, we are fun to be around together of separately.
Hey! I'm Lori, I'm 26 years old from the UK. I have been travelling for almost 4 months around Asia before moving to Oz in December 2016. Currently with friends in Sydney but can't wait to move to Melbourne! I am a paediatric nurse and will be working full time. I'm looking for an awesome house/apartment with awesome house mates! No preference on age/gender. When I'm not working I like to lead a healthy balanced lifestyle. I love yoga/working out but am also a sucker for red wine and chocolate! I love to cook and hang out with friends in the evenings. I love dancing and music so you'll normally find me blasting a few tunes rather than watching tv.
Turning 18 in May and wanting to move to Melbourne from Perth to study a Bachelor of Arts at the university of Melbourne. Looking for a central place to rent near the Uni. Will also be working part time over there. I'm easy going, tidy and respectful :-)
I am from Pakistan. I recently graduated from high school and will now be studying at the University of Melbourne. My hobbies include working out, watching movies, listening to music and last but not least, obsessing over cars. I also like to play sports such as football, volleyball and cricket, as well as track/field. I can be flexible when it comes to sharing a place with someone. I don't drink or smoke, but I don't mind if others around me do either. I am not a vegetarian (for those whom it may concern), and I don't despise vegetarians either haha. I'm also cool with pets. I think the only thing I can be guilty of is taking too long to brush my teeth in the morning, so if we're sharing a bathroom we'll have to work around that. Also, I am a firm believer in personal space. I wouldn't want to intrude anyone's set boundaries of personal space and would prefer likewise in return.
I'm a Nurse (can help when things get rough) I can cook (mostly SE Asian/Indian.. actually anything spicy). I am active.. I'm into meditation, yoga, biking, hiking. I have my own business/s around OSH which I'm expanding into the Australian market. I also love travel, comedy and high quality whisky ;) I'm currently in NZ working on a few projects with the plan to make the move to Melbourne in April at the latest. (This post might be premature, but I've been meeting some awesome humans anyways so what the hell).
Hey there! My name is Dan and I'm a 23 year old American from Boston. My girlfriend, who is 19 and Dutch, and I are looking for a room to rent starting as soon as possible. We have just arrived in Melbourne from Byron Bay and are currently looking for work in sales or hospitality. We both are very outgoing and easy to get along with. We like to go out and have a good time once in a while but also love to just chill and a hang out. Some of our interests include: travel, sports (soccer/football/basketball), music, and socializing.
Hi! We are Pavi and Manon (English and French) and we are both 20yo. We are exchange students at Monash University. We have been in Melbourne since last July and we lived in halls on campus (Clayton) during our first semester here. However we would like to live closer to the city so we are looking for a place to stay near Melbourne CBD for the next coming months. We enjoy eating (a lot!) so we are always looking for new places to go and eat. We also like to cook ourselves so it would be nice to have flatmates who do too! We are also always up for a drink (or two) with our friends. We are gym buddies so we are going on a regular basis to the gym. Sometimes we also enjoy staying home with a good movies/series to watch. And finally we love travelling and exploring new places around Melbourne! We are easy-going, tidy and clean. We are looking forward to meeting you! Pavi and Manon
I'm a very chill, laid-back guy, came to do my Masters at Monash, loves to hang out when I'm free, always up for a drink in the living room and respectful of others independence. I play guitar, cook good food, and enjoy a run ! Looking for a short term accommodation (3-4 months) near the city !
