$500/week30 year old females

We’re two easy-going friends who are well experienced in the house-sharing game. We’ve been living in a 2-bed apartment for the last 2 years but we’re now looking to venture into a bigger space and share a home with some new people north-side. We’re not in a rush but keen to move out soon — we just have to give a months notice at our current place. Neither of us smoke or have pets and we’re respectful of others and the space. We’re keen to be part of a housemate unit where everyone communicates openly, shares a meal or two and helps create a welcoming environment. Although we’ve been living together and get along great, we’re not ‘cliquey’ and our different personalities will bring some dynamic to the household. What we’re after: A reasonably spacious, light-filled house/town-house with a garden area or large balcony to grow plants and relax outdoors. 2 good sized bedrooms that can fit double beds and wardrobes. Open-plan kitchen/living is preferable as we think it’s more sociable and definitely lots of natural light. Looking to pay up to $250 per room excluding bills. About Faye (main contact): Originally from the UK, I trained as a journalist and moved to Melbourne 9 years ago. I love a good laugh, making new friends, riding my bike anywhere and everywhere and checking out quirky bars, events and eateries around Melbourne. I’m a health, fitness and outdoor adventure enthusiast and also well travelled — recently climbing Mount Kilimanjaro. Although I’m usually out and about, I equally love my down time: music, movies and random chats with a cheeky wine, or heading down to the pub for a mid-week trivia sesh. About Tahlia: Laid back interior design and decorating student working full-time as a bathroom consultant. I’m into yoga, pilates, hiking and taking a road trip/weekend away when I can. I’m in my element when I’m cooking in the kitchen and love to try out new recipes. I like to have time to myself but I’m always up for a chat, shared meals, drinks and movie nights.

$125/week35 year old female

Hello! I have lived in Melbourne for about 8 years and currently have been renting in Brunswick for 2 years. However, this beautiful old house is being sold so need a new place to call home. I work in tech for a non-profit health organisation and I also freelance as a tutor/editor. In my spare time, I volunteer as a hike guide, help run wellness workshops and meditation retreats and volunteer at Buddhist centres, so I keep myself quite busy. I am an expat from the UK with Asian roots and in the process of becoming an Australian citizen. Looking to find a place I can call home until I can afford to buy my own...which may take a while looking at the house prices! What I'm looking for: a peaceful, comfy and respectful home where everyone communicates, gets on well, has some sort of tidiness and don't mind a good chat in the evenings. Ideally, would love it if we all got on like a family, maybe now and then do things together as a house but nothing too committed. I'm not really into late night parties. I prefer quiet evenings and active days with dinner parties or BBQ's that don't upset the neighbours with the permission of all housemates involved. Would like to live with housemates who are respectful, able to communicate, positive, kind, intelligent and enjoy life. I hope my housemates would feel I'm approachable too. I'm a good communicator and mature as well as a good listener and a team player. Have lived in rental houses for over 20 years. Prefer to stay with non-smokers, no heavy drinkers and a drug-free home. I always pay bills on time and a clean/tidy person who cleans up after themselves. So no problems with tidiness or cleanliness. Interests and hobbies: I am an outdoor adventure junkie, love all things hiking and going camping which is why I am a hike guide for a national hiking association. I am also an active volunteer, working at Buddhist centres, meditation retreats and wellness workshops in Australia and sometimes abroad. I practise daily yoga, meditation and have a plant-based diet though I do eat seafood and occasionally poultry. I like my gardening and growing edible things in the garden, cooking all my meals, baking gluten-free/sugar-free/vegan delights/sourdough, sometimes make my own yoghurt, sprouting alfalfa and pea shoots type of lady, love my healthy eating, writing (trying) a few books, reading lots of books on self-development/philosophy/non-religious spirituality/wellness/psychology/medicine, films, playing guitar and maybe start learning the cello soon, painting, travelling, organising hikes, and probably more stuff.
