Tyler & Bridget

Looking in: Wolli Creek, Sydenham, Saint Peters, Newtown, Marrickville, Glebe, Erskineville, Darlington

Very easy going and clean. We love to cook and to have a quiet beer with mates. We're both students at the University of Sydney. I (Tyler, 21) am studying Engineering and Commerce and Bridget (Jet, 20) is studying Architecture. We've just come back from a year overseas and are getting back into our studies. Our favourite pass-times are getting out and about, hiking, camping, gyming and patting dogs (or just straight up hugging and smooching them if you're Bridget). We're both always up for a good conversation and a glass of wine over dinner or Netflix (we're old people in disguise!)

Looking in: North Sydney, Newtown, Neutral Bay, Erskineville, Enmore, Cremorne, Coogee, Bronte, Alexandria

Hi I’m Lucy, I’m 26, just finished my Masters of Architecture, and working full time to become a registered architect. I’m looking to move into another share house in about 2-3 months time with like-minded people, and a laid back and respectful atmosphere. I enjoy time outdoors, the beach, I workout at the gym before work, and live a fairly active life. I’m responsible, a clean and tidy living environment is important to me, and while I like downtime on my own, i’m also looking to catch up with housemates over the occasional dinner or wine. If you think I’d be an ideal fit, say hello! Preferences: no couples, no pets Ps. I’m the one on the left

PIXIE & ZEN

Looking in: Coogee, Kensington, Centennial Park, Woolloomooloo, Surry Hills, Saint Peters, Potts Point, Paddington, Newtown, Darlinghurst

Hello :) :) :) I am great to live with as I have lived all over the globe, literally, since I was a kid! I was a Diplomat Brat and have been to school in places such as Singapore..Indonesia & NZ.. The list goes onnnnn and onnnnnn. As an adult, I caught the travel bug and am an online coach and travel the world with my son, aged 3. He's a pretty chill dude, and very respectful of furnishings and space, as he has been to 11+ countries since 6 weeks of age, and more airbnbs than we can count! :) I returned to Sydney, from Glasgow Scotland, and moved into a house which is not as communal as I'd hoped. I wish to stay LONG TERM , ideally 12 months in a house, (hopefully longer if we get the right dynamic). I work from a co-working space (The Hub) during the week, and my son attends a preschool 4 days. We are out and about A LOT (coworking space events...parks..playgrounds...all the free events Sydney has to offer etcetcetc). I have to say that I can afford our own place, and I did this pre moving to the UK, but honestly, after living with people again, I can see my son and I thrive on it and it gets pretty isolating as a solo parent! If you tell me you are a quiet household or that you're out working a lot, without a wish to socialise at home with us, I actually think this is a HUGE MINUS. I want to live with people who are friendly, and well, we are loud ourselves -I play music , as does my son (expect to hear Fat Freddy's drop at 7.30am while we get ready for school...). If you're going to be sitting eating dinner in your room, we won't be suited. I'm a pretty chill person. In saying that, I like to tidy up, clean, and cook a lot! (Don't worry, I don't care if you do or not, I just like to ;-). ) *SUPER OPEN MINDED *RESPECTFUL *RELAXED *LOVE COOKING *FINANCIALLY STABLE *SOCIAL *SUSTAINABLE *DIRECT & AMAZING COMMUNICATOR (no passive-aggressive post-it notes or txts, ugh) *BRING UP ANY ISSUES EARLY & RESPECTFULLY *LGBT friendly *Great music collection, particularly DRUM AND BASS! I get that living with a 3 year old (***HE'S THREE, THE THING WOULDNT LET ME ADD HIM UNLESS HE WAS 16 YRS OR OLDER-HAHAHA) is not everyone's idea of an ideal housemate, and yet I encourage you to meet us, and then judge for yourselves! I come with good references and referees, as does my little dude, just ask :). Also, if you have a whole property you want rented out, I would love to go on your lease! *I also have a fair bit of furniture (dining table/butcher's bench/couch, artwork) which is in storage in Sydney at the moment, from our last home. I would love an UNFURNISHED PLACE. I guess I'll tell you about my favourite living arrangements that seemed to work best for us: BERLIN WAREHOUSE *We had a massive room and ensuite *The house was full of DJs and artists (perfect for my son to enjoy company and they were always making noise themselves, so didn't mind much what he was up to) *we got to be social and have company, but also enough space to retreat when we wanted GLASGOW HOUSE *This was a small space with one other gay woman and her cat. She worked a lot at a bar. When she was home, we were social and shared a vino or three while my son played. Will miss this place!! My son loves all animals and loves giving the dog a walk if you have one ! Spaces that DIDNT work: * People who are allergic to kids (they exist) *Toxic people who are low vibe and negative *If you communicate passive-aggresively via sms or post it notes and have no communication skills *Uptight/super anal people *If you are a light-sleeper (sometimes he wakes up at 5am, that's kids for you) ---Haaaa! That's what earplugs and wine are for riiiight? *If you work all the time and want to come home to absolute peace and quiet (we aren't rowdy by any means, but we aren't house mice either) *If you just want to sit in your room all day/night *If you're unemployed *If you're addicted to substances *****PLEASE NOTE I am currently residing in the Randwick/Coogee area, so would need to give my current housemate adequate notice. Looking forward to hearing from all the high-vibe lovers who'd be keen to setup a great space together or already established a space for us to add to! X Pixie & Zen

Hi, I'm from England and I'm currently on a Working Holiday Visa. I'm looking for a room/place to rent near the beach but close to the city, or in the city. I mainly did office administration work in England so I'm looking to do that kind of work again, or try to find a more sociable job in a cafe, restaurant, etc. I'm very clean, tidy, a cat lover and for fun I like to go to the beach, explore new places, go for walks, listen to music and watch TV series and films. :)

Hey! I'm originally from the Gold Coast, but I have lived in Brisbane for the past 6 years to study at UQ. I'm moving down to Sydney for a full time job with a firm in the CBD at the start of February. Looking for some like minded housemates somewhere near the CBD, preferably inner-west. I like having a few casual bevs here and there, but not hugely into clubbing anymore. I love listening to new music and I enjoy a bunch of genres, so i'm sure we'd have a few artists in common. Also love going to the beach as much as possible. If i'm doing nothing at home I'll usually be watching a movie/doco on netflix or playing a video game. I'm clean, social and pretty easy-going. Totally happy with all religions/races/lifestyles/orientations/genders/coke habits/coriander preferences; you do you. I pay all my bills on time or early if possible. I'm looking for housemates who I could hang out and spin a yarn with, but also have time to ourselves. Let me know if you have any other questions!

*(FYI: Just here for research at the moment, not looking to move until April/may 2019)* Fun Facts about me: I'm a "late 30-something" man/guy/dude. . I work full time for a trade union, Mondays to Fridays, doing the 9-5 thing and like having low key evenings during the week, although don't mind the occasional movie/pub meal during weeknight evenings. I like going to the party rather than bringing it home, although I do like entertaining friends over dinner or drinks at home. I'm clean, tidy, hygienic, and am not (currently) hosting any alien plagues/beings. I'm reliable and responsible with rent/bills/groceries/dishes/taking the bins out, etc. I'm also sociable and funny, and don't mind having a chin wag but also like my own space and quiet time. I love cooking (when I'm not exhausted) and sharing a meal once in a while. Also, I smoke occasionally, but only outside, far, far away from living spaces.. I'm all about personal responsibility, mutual respect, and open communication between housemates and would like to live in a place i call home rather than just rent a room in a house. Most importantly, I am house-trained and not a dickhead.

I am moving up to Sydney to do a masters and will be working remotely for a jewellery brand. I love cinema, my shtick is cinematic documentary, but apart from that music, reading, gardening, cooking, going on little adventures out of the city and trying to not use social media so much. I am a terrible surfer but love popping about in the white wash so i’ll be bringing up my board to ‘get pitted’. One of my new years resolutions is to cut down on meat and dairy, not totally but to lessen my impact on the environment, so I at the moment I eat meat once a week. What else can I tell you, I love architecture and design, I have a bunch of furniture but it all has homes with friends/fam (I recently came back from living OS or 8 months) so I can take as much or as little as I need. I would prefer not to have to truck it up, however I could contribute and have a lot of pretty nice stuff in storage. I am a clean person, I am a social person, but also love my quiet time. I would be interested in cooking together too, if thats something that you guys do, but also happy to cook solo as well.
