Kylie & Adam

Looking in: Surry Hills, Newtown, Marrickville, Lewisham, Glebe, Erskineville, Enmore, Alexandria

We are moving to Sydney as we have both been offered new jobs. I will be working as a food product development manager and Adam will be working as a professional photographer. Adam is very funny and I'm not funny at all but I love a good laugh. I used to be a chef so nothing makes me happier than a clean kitchen and Adam likes to garden and fix things. We’d prefer to live in a house with a little garden so Adam can put his green fingers to work. We both love dogs and are very easily won over by pet owners. Non smokers and very responsible drinkers.

I am coming back from six months backpacking and studying in Europe and two weeks volunteering in Thailand. Before I left Australia, I rented with flatmates for two and a half years and we all had an enjoyable time! I am sociable, easy-going and a good cook so the kitchen will always smell nice! When I get back to Australia, I will be returning to my casual job at Macquarie University where I work 20+ hours a week and I will finish my last semester at the University of Sydney, after which I plan to do my masters in Secondary Education.

I'm an American trying to find my way back into the inner-inner west (please don’t message for places that are not inner-inner west). I have yet to give my notice at my current location, which is 3 weeks, so the place I'm looking to move into needs to be available around the second week of December. At a glance: - $280/week budget (all bills in this) - Inner inner west/inner city, no more than 30 mins to Central by public transit, with walking time - preferably furnished - preferably no more than 3-4 people in the household - absolutely must be pest-free and clean (old is fine!!) - move in during early-mid December I keep to myself for the most part but I'm social enough that you won't worry about there being a dead body in the room and I'm certainly open to recapping the week over a wine or tea, I clean up all my messes (and I have too much experience cleaning up other people’s messes), and I always pay rent on time. Heck, even early if I can't pay on the scheduled day. I just won't suit a large sharehouse--I find things tend to stray into chaos when there's more than 3-4 unrelated people living under one roof. Currently I live with a married couple, renting a room in their recently acquired apartment. It's new and snazzy but it's expensive and in a sad, bleak part of Sydney. They have been great to live with (the best people I've ever rented from), but I need to find a cheerier suburb. My budget is listed as 280--for me this means all up, all bills, up to 280/week. Additionally, as I am a foreigner, I would GREATLY prefer a furnished place, at least just with a double/queen bed--I don't want to be stuck trying to sell off furniture. I am NOT interested in bleak, gray, apartment-centric suburbs. Thanks for reading and lemme know if what you've got fits! PS: Feel free to ask me about the time I used to live in Glebe with a hoarder who managed to infest the house with fleas while we had no pet. I noped out of that fast and lost so much money in the process. It would explain to you how much of a legend flatmate I am and my perseverance in times of adversity. But really, please, no bug infestations.

Jonathan

Looking in: Redfern, Petersham, Newtown, Marrickville, Lewisham, Dulwich Hill

My name is Jonathan and I'm 22 years old. I work 4 days a week in the city as a transcriptionist (typing out what people say), and my main hobby would be music (guitar) which dedicates itself to my spare weekday in the form of rehearsals down Marrickville-way. I'm well-versed in the sharehouse lifestyle and am all about staying on top of general tidiness before it gets out of control. I definitely appreciate a good yarn and catch up with the housemates, but am also of the belief that quality downtime is definitely important for maintaining a good headspace. Being musically inclined, I like to try and catch shows, have a beer, and see if I can spot a few friendly faces. Cheers for having a read!

I'm super easy going and can get along well with most! I like to keep my shit tidy and am happy to do my chores weekly. I have a small jungle of plants 🌱 which is ever growing, along with quite a large art collection 🎨 which will usually spill out into the communal areas. I'm quite a social butterfly with pals around or hangs with roomies, but will also have nights locked away in my room with books or Netflix. I'm a recently graduated BFA Acting student, (but I don't scream all the time or have thespian mates who judge you for not knowing who Henrik Ibsen is 🎭). I work full time between auditions in a cafe on king street ☕️🍰. I love to cook and love to share meals so I'll flick you a plate of hearty yums here and there! I'm essentially looking for somewhere I can make into a home in this big bad city, with some people who are kind, clean, creative and open. xx Please don’t get in contact about share rooms or homes above $240 or far from Newtown, I need to stick to my budget, stay close to work and have some privacy, so ta in advance 🙏🏻 Thanks! Ebony 🌙🌼✨

I'm a full time professional working in Martin Place, currently living in a sharehouse in Newtown but our place is getting renovated and re-leased :( would love to continue to live in Newtown or somewhere closer to the city so I could potentially walk to work and save some cash! I love going away for weekends in my van or going out in the city with friends and I also love bouldering, yoga, chilling in the sun reading a book or at the beach. Love hanging at home with a glass of wine too. I keep to myself quite a lot but also love a good chat with the housemates or hanging out on the odd occasion :) I also have a 6yr old cat who has lived with me in many sharehouses and she is a super shy cat, toilet trained and mainly hangs outside in the sun if there is the opportunity.

Hi, I'm Jared (sure it says I'm Kara, but it lies!) myself and my girlfriend Kara are looking for a place/room in the inner west Sydney area, and...um, what to write next... What would you like to know of us? We have legs, and my mum thinks I'm cool- we play well with others, what else? We are in our 30s, both love movie/games nights (both board and video) and are both ex bar tenders so make some pretty mean cocktails! After a few weeks of searching for a share house and finding nothing particularly great we have decided ‘screw it! Let’s start our own!’- oh yes, we’re going off the grid! (While still being in all conceivable ways still connected to the grid- cos I like electricity and sewage). I work as a science communicator traveling around Australia teaching kids about dinosaurs and the galaxy (with puppets!) and a bunch of other cool stuff (so you don't even have to worry about me half the time) and Kara is super awesome… except for her spine, her spine hates her and everyone around her- she’s currently on sick leave from the justice department while her spine decides whether it wants’ to keep living with us or go get a place on its own. Kara works for the justice department (well not so much at the moment… she's busy repairing her back from stupid injuries but shall be hopefully back keeping the community safe soon!) If you’re interested meeting up for a coffee/brew/liquid of your choosing and a chat to see if we are people you could live with then we should do that. We'd love to hear from you and are happy to answer any question you can throw at us, however if it’s ‘what is the air speed velocity of an unlaiden swallow’ please specify if it's African or European-

I’ve recently moved from Adelaide for a job with the NSW Government and am looking for a sharehouse with other 20s-30s professionals or students. I’m ideally looking for a friendly bunch who like to hang out together from time to time. I’m not big into partying these days, but always up for going out to a gig or a couple of drinks. I’m tidy, respectful, easy going, and enjoy a good chat over wine. I also love to cook and usually stick to healthy options, but I am not above buying affection with baked goods!

I'm an active and busy person who loves being out and about. I love exploring new areas particularly to scout for good food or drink spots. considerate of other people and their space but also happy to chat! I'm not a smoker, drug user or big smoker. I am in a relationship so won't be bringing a new person home each night. We like to spend weekends away and football (soccer) dominates my calendar for most of the year so I'm out and about frequently.
