Jessica, Female, 23yrs

Looking in: Brunswick West, Brunswick East, Carlton, Richmond, Brunswick, Coburg, Northcote, Collingwood, Fitzroy

I am a left-leaning, musically-interested, social and occasionally studious mid-twenties female looking for a fun, but tidy share-house in central Melbourne. I like good chats, loud music and cold beers. I just moved from Brisbane to finish a Masters degree in Creative Writing, Publishing and Editing at the University of Melbourne. I've been studying on and off for the last five years, having already completed a BA in Creative and Professional Writing, an Honours thesis concentrated in Literary Studies, and started a Master of Arts at the University of Queensland. Although I am fairly studious and busy during the week, I like to socialise on the weekends by going to gigs, sampling delicious beers and op-shopping. I enjoy reading, writing (obviously), music and photography. I also collect vinyls and will be sending down a vinyl player/large vinyl collection once I've got a place. I have worked as an ESL teacher for the past two years and I'm currently looking for casual teaching work. Your real estate can contact my real estate for a reference. I'm happy to pay three months rent up front. I have also lived in China, where I worked as an English teacher with kids, and I have lived and studied in Japan as an undergraduate. I am thus very open-minded to different cultures and lifestyles. If you like the sounds of any of this feel free to send me a message. I'm looking for a large private room as I would like to set up a desk for studying. I also need lots of storage space for my ridiculously large wardrobe of vintage and Japanese fashion (which I am happy to share if you're my size!). I have two couches, a washing machine, a brand new fridge, a two-seater dining set, a six seater dining set, coffee table...pretty much everything! It's all in storage at the moment at my parents' house and I'm happy to leave it there or send it down. I am also looking at vacant two/three bedroom properties on the Northside and possibly applying for a property by myself. So if you're in the same boat as me and looking for shared accommodation in a nice house in a centrally located suburb, feel to send me a message. You must be open-minded, house-trained and LGTB /420 friendly, and ideally within the age bracket of 20-30.

I work part time as a bartender at the Melbourne Recital Centre and am halfway through a Psychology Post-Grad. I really enjoy gardening, reading, cooking and listening to music in my spare time when I'm not playing. I live a humble existence and am always open to learning new things.

Hi, I'm a student about to go into my second year of my bachelor of fine arts. As a housemate I'm generally very quiet and clean, but love cooking (not just for myself but for others). I'm very quiet during the week and spend a lot of time reading books or watching films, but I love to catch up during the weekends and socialise. :) I'm a vegetarian but have lived with both meat eaters and vegans so other peoples' food choices don't bother me! Also, I come with many houseplants. I'd love to live with other people involved in the arts, or other students but this isn't a necessity!

Hi! My name is Miki and I am from Tokyo, currently on a working holiday visa. I started living in shared housing in university and have never stopped since! I have lived in university dorms, shared flats, and most recently a 30 person share house in Tokyo. I've really enjoyed the balance of having a room to myself while always having the option to talk to someone after a long day, instead of just coming home to an empty apartment. I enjoy hiking and other outdoor pursuits, baking, playing cards and board games, and finding fun things to do around the city (especially if they are free!).

Renee, Female, 35yrs

Looking in: Northcote, Brunswick, Fairfield, Thornbury

I'm a 35yo freelancer writer/journalist who gets to work from home every Monday, which is probably my dream job I reckon. I also work part-time Tuesday to Friday in a media communications role for a large international non-government org, which is another dream job actually. So kicking goals. To complete the picture, I'm on the hunt for a great place to call home in Thornbury area or surrounding suburbs which can accommodate me and my four-year-old cat, who is probably the most beautiful ragdoll you've ever seen. Ragdolls as a breed are quite unique as far as cats go - they are very fond of humans, incredibly placid and affectionate, non-arrogant, relaxed animals - a bit more like a (super chilled out) dog in the way they like humans in fact. I’ve had housemates who say initially they're not fond of cats completely change their tune after living with him- to the point they would consider getting a cat like him! In short, he's a great addition to a household. Clean, litter trained and all that. He also loves the outdoors, so I'm looking for somewhere with a backyard. I'm definitely the less chilled out of the two of us (what with the journalism and deadlines and all) so to balance it out I'm often busy weekday evenings with dance classes (doubles as my main form of fitness these days) in the evenings and regular catch ups with friends. I've got plenty of close friends in the area, so I'd be hoping to find somewhere that can comfortably accommodate me having the odd night on the couch with some wine and my girlfriends (read: supremely talented women and completely amazing humans). I've lived in rental share houses (and with complete strangers) all my adult life and I’m an excellent housemate, I just know how it works. My current living situation is also pretty cosy, I'm living in a private rental (my landlord is seriously amazing) near Fairfield with four others who all get along, it's a beautiful big house and I'll be sad to leave. Happy in a share house where everyone functions fairly independently of each other, but still likes catching up every now and then. If any of this sounds like a good fit, get in touch!

Looking in: Fairfield, Carlton, Fitzroy, Brunswick, Northcote

I am Marcus, a 26 almost 27 year old Australian. 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. Having 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 (9am-3pm), and in the evening and on weekends I like to work on my writing. I value my own space and independence, but I also love socialising with people as long as they are genuine and easy-going. I would like to live with people who respect the space of others while at the same time enjoying hanging out occasionally. I'm not after a "full-on" party household, but am keen for hanging out with glasses of wine, food and chats. I 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 pad. 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. Expect to hear me singing along to Jens Lekman or Kings of Convenience at some point! I would be after a non-furnished room in a cosy house with lots of light. The vibe is important for me. I also want a room big enough for my bed, a desk, and all my books. In terms of furniture/stuff I can bring with me, I have a large record collection and a quality Rega record player + Peterson 170 watt speakers + Sherwood stereo system that I am willing to bring to my new potential house, given there is room. :)

I have probably read about 5000 books but you will get the biggest nonsense out of me (you don't even have to try very hard). I like to play a bit on my Ukulele and I love all kind of arts, individuality and people who do things their way! I'm kind of nerdy when it comes to Geology and Arts and books. But always easy to get along with and interested in all sort of stuff - especially people and music. When I manage to do some outdoor activity I am really excited about it! That includes skiing, climbing, hiking, ... travelling too. If nature is to far away, I try to ignore that by doing a lot of work out in a park/beach/playground/... I'm a vegeterian and I like to keep kitchen and bathroom clean.

I solo travelled all last year around Europe and Morocco and now i've come back home to live, work and study Spanish, in hopes that I can travel back to Spain at the end of the year. I love sharing a house with others, you get a nice community feeling which is something I really miss from travelling. I've been told i'm warm natured, mature minded with a natural sense of empathy and I'm often known for my smile. I've lived in shared situations before and believe that I'm tidy and extremely respectful of other people's space. My preferred housemate is someone I can enjoy a meal with occasionally and talk to every now and again. Although I enjoy a good conversation I also can be introverted and like spending time with myself reading, creating or just relaxing in the garden.

Hi I'm Romany. I'm 25 (but very mature for my age - not to sound wanky) and studying screen and media production at RMIT. My main interests are film (hence film school) and music so I tend to spend a lot of time at the cinema and gigs around Melbourne. But I'm also really into health and sustainable living, travel, drinking tea and chilling out and contemplating the world. I also love animals and have been a vegetarian since I was 14. I'm looking for a more mature and respectful sharehouse, as I tend to prefer relaxing and watching a bit of Netflix with a nice dinner over partying every weekend. I've lived in sharehouses for the last 6 years so I'm very used to how things go when it comes to shared living. I'm a fairly social person, so prefer living in a 'home' rather than just a place that people eat and sleep. I love the community feel of a sharehouse and chilling with housemates when the mood strikes, but also very respectful of the fact that everybody needs their independent/alone time, especially when things get busy with uni and work. I'm clean and tidy and can bring with me a gorgeous old 70s style three seater couch, plus a TV and DVD collection. I also ran my previous sharehouse for 18 months so I'm almost pathologically punctual when it comes to paying rent and bills on time. I'm not in a rush to find a new place, so above all I'm looking for a place that feels like the right fit. Send me a message if you think we might get along!

Hello! I work in hospitality and I've just moved to Melbourne. I've lived in Sydney all of my adult life in shared housing situations, so I'm pretty chill and considerate of other people's needs. I prefer living in a place where the occupants are happy to mingle and socialise, especially over drinks and/or food. I enjoy cooking at home, and will be bringing a bunch of cool kitchen toys with me! At other times I run fairly regularly for exercise, or play video games on the computer. My work hours will likely be late. I do my best to keep things quiet when I come home late and have never had complaints from the other 9-5ers I've lived with. I don’t have a pet but love animals, so I’m happy to feed or walk/exercise your pets. I’m looking for a long-term home (6 months or more) and would like to move in sooner rather than later, but I'm fairly flexible.

Hello there future housemate(s), I’m Sanjit, a 22-year-old student who’s looking to move to Melbourne from Brisbane in order to pursue my Master’s degree in Food science at the University of Melbourne. I’m very reliable with rent and other bills (can provide references of previous housemates). I’ve lived in many share houses before so I know the drill! I’m hygienic, clean and tidy! I’m very chilled out and laid-back (so much so that I’m almost horizontal) and hope to find similar easy going and open minded housemates. Looking to rent a place for a minimum of 4-6 months and can extend it if it works out fine. I’m a very sociable person, love going out for food, drinks, movies and would love to find a chilled out place to call home. I also respect everyone’s privacy and will not be constantly pestering you haha. Since I’ll be starting with my Master’s degree, I’ll be pretty busy during the weekdays at Uni but I’m always keen to chill on the weekends. I love watching and playing soccer! (GO Manchester united!) I enjoy scuba diving, longboarding and am now looking into indoor/outdoor rock climbing. Also enthusiastic about patting dogs and watching funny dog compilation videos. I’m an avid music listener! Love rap, hip hop (artists such as Kendrick lamar, Eminem, 2pac, Biggie, The underachievers, Joey badass, J cole etc), classic rock (Pink Floyd, Guns n roses, Aerosmith, The beatles, Jefferson airplane, Creedence Clearwater revival, The rolling stones, Eric Clapton, Queen etc), Electronic (Flume, Nicholas jaar, Odesza, Pretty lights, Eric prydz, Bassnectar etc) and sometimes when I’m feeling classy, I’ll hit up some Wolfgang Mozart (what a ridiculously cool name) or Bach. So if you love music, I’m sure we will get along!! Also, I have a pair of headphones so you don’t have to worry about me blasting loud music. Also down to binge watch movies and tv shows. So, if you think we’d get along and would like to team up or you have a room available in your house, hit me up! I’m currently travelling overseas and will be arriving in Melbourne around the 21st of February. Send me a message if you're interested. Hope to hear from you soon :)

Hey future housemates, I am a sharehouse fan, I have lived in Melbourne with 2-5 other people for the last 5 years. I like to share a meal together now and then and do my own thing sometimes, whatever really. I work full-time in the city Monday-Friday and spend a fair bit of time on road trips/out of the house on weekends. Hobby-wise I am a coffee obsessive, and will likely have one in my hand when I'm at home! I am a pretty clean person and am happy to keep the house as tidy as everyone feels like. That's about it really, looking forward to meeting you! Tom

Looking in: Fairfield, Brunswick East, Carlton, Carlton North, Richmond, Kew, East Melbourne, Fitzroy North, Abbotsford, North Melbourne, Northcote, Collingwood, Fitzroy, Parkville, Ivanhoe, Brunswick, Melbourne

Greetings our future flatmate/flatmates. We are two, Lucie (24) and my partner Costas (26). We are a friendly couple, Lucie studies business English in CBD and Costas international business in Melbourne Polytechnic. We have experience in living in a shared flat/house individually and as a couple aswell, therefore we are peacefull, we know how to respect the house rules, how to be clean and quiet when needed. Lucie loves drawing, yoga, nature. Costas loves baking, science and motorcycles. We are as similar as black and white colour but get along as good as pizza with beer. We are responsible as individuals and as a couple, we follow etiquette. We don't look for a party house. Both of us can cook and know how to manage fridge. We both clean after ourselves and know how to maintain clean, especially shared spaces like bathroom and kitchen. There is not much that we would consider a perfect flatmate, we highly appreciate: * Not a frat house but an adult environment * A mature personality * A clean nature * Friendly people (being friends and not just flatmates is just awesome) What we offer * We are clean * We are quiet * We are open people * We are non smokers * If you like what we cook you can join without any problem, * If you want to join a conversation, a game, a movie, anything as long as you are friendly you are welcome. * We come in peace, we negotiate and dialogue and compromise. * Any knowledge we have can be yours we would be happy to tell you all about any skill that we have. * Awesome stories from around the world * Amazing food :D

Hi there! I was born 21 years ago on a Saturday, which is still my favorite day of the week. I love plants, am a pretty down-to-earth kinda person. If you have a pet than that's awesome! If not, no worries, I won't bring in any ;). I study Media and Culture which involves anything media related, from the very first cinemas till the playfulness of interactive art installations. Having a comfortable neat home, where privacy is respected but friendliness not neglected (what a terrible rhyme) would be amazing! Hope to see you soon!

Hannah, Female, 23yrs

Looking in: Caulfield, Northcote, Doncaster, South Melbourne, East Melbourne

Hello friends, I'm Hannah, 23, inherent geek fluent in dad-jokes. Looking for a relaxed environment with like-minded people. I currently live on the Gold Coast and want to move to Melbourne for the lifestyle and work. I just finished my Masters in Writing, Editing and Publishing and hope to work in a publishing house, but am a killer waitress which I'll pursue while setting myself up. Films and novels are my true loves, but eating and hiking follow closely. If you wanted to hike a mountain before sunrise and follow up the rest of the day with a Tolkien marathon while gorging on raw cookie dough we'll get on famously. I'm a tidy person who looks after themselves and others, I will offer to cook and do laundry if those things are appreciated and reciprocated. I'm always keen for a laugh and hanging out but I relish my own space as well, sometimes the only reminder you'll have of my existence is the cackle echoing from my room. I have a cat named Gregory House (after the tv show). As most cats are, he's grumpy and entitled but I love him more than anything else in the world. He is an indoor cat, toilet trained, has no inclination to damage furniture or belongings, and spends his days lazing around, usually out of sight. I am a very caring person and easy to get along with. I'm also liberal person. I believe in equal rights, marriage equality, freedom of ideals and religions. While I understand everyone is entitled to their own opinions, I don't have space in my life for bigots. I also prefer to be in a drug/smoke free environment. Happy to talk anytime for those interested.

Andrew, Male, 40yrs

Looking in: Carlton North, Brunswick, Fitzroy, North Melbourne, Northcote, Thornbury

Hello - looking for a social, eco inclined, likeminded household to join. Preferably with a nice garden I could contribute to. Originally from Sydney I've been in Melb for a bit over 7 years. I've settled into a nice circle of friends and community and feel like a naturalised creature of the inner north. I'm sociable, enjoy passing time with new and amusing people, but I am also pretty independent and am happy doing my own thing too. I love music. Both listening and playing a bit of guitar (generally along a folk/indie/country vibe) - more for therapeutic reasons than seriously. Cycling is a passion. I commute by bike but also like to disappear for hours on rides out in the hills. I also play soccer regularly. I try to have a creative projects going although at the moment it doesn't seem to much more than the compiling of lists, such are the demands of wage slavery. I'm also on a bit of a reading bender at the moment. I'm a keen gardener and at a minimum I'm worm farming with kitchen scraps and herb growing. I also come with a dwarf lemon tree, a kumquat tree and a bay tree. I cook a lot. And I love eating food. I manage my own fodder but I'm happy to fling a meal out to an unmotivated or tired fellow human from time to time. I consider myself a Veganesque-Garbagitarian - meaning, I don't intentionally eat animal things but am pretty relaxed about it, and don't like to waste. I don't care what others eat. I have minimalist and frugal living inclinations, aiming to produce rather than just consume. Left leaning too, if that isn't already obvious. None of this should really impact on you - but it might be interesting to know. I do like to watch occasional television series, but tend to hide in bed with a laptop and binge when I do A house with the telly on nonstop would be a real drag. A drink? Every now and then? Don't mind if I do. But not suckling from a goon bag or passing out anymore. I'm an animal lover - so would be happy to become pals with your animals if you have any. In the past I've been friends with a Goldfish, a German Shepard, and 3 female rats (sisters). No pets now sadly. I've recently downsized all my things so have few items of furniture. However I have a keen and patient eye for vintage and tasteful ebay bargains so could help with furnishings over time. I clean up common areas like bathrooms and kitchens as I use them, so they are nice for the next person - and would prefer to live with others who have the same approach. I have lived alone in the past and during that time it was fun to see how many dishes you could stack into the sink before washing - but thankfully when share housing I'm far more civilised. I love dishwashers. I like to think that they love me back I am looking for mature, responsible and fun social peeps to live with. Social but also independent. Clean and tidy, and considerate. Intelligent chit chats, viewing the world with a critical and compassionate eye. Eco aware. A good sense of humour would be ideal. I think this possibly describes what everyone is looking for? I'm also looking for a quieter abode to be able to have a rest from the world, rather than a party house. I currently work as lawyer/policy person for a not-for-profit in the media sector, although I'm shortly going to be freelance. I have other income producing projects so paying rent and bills will never be a problem, but while I'm currently a 9-5-er, I won't be for much longer and would like to work from home occasionally. I hope the thumbnail sketch above of where i'm at and what my interests and motivations are may give you some idea of who I'm looking to live with. Thanks for taking the time to read my profile.

I am a qualified horticulturalist so I can help out with all things green and I make a small carbon footprint.

I enjoy a glass of tawny after work occasionally and I dapple in a few art and craft things for the kiddies for work. I have a sense of humor, I'm a good spider catcher, which is very important, as i seem to attract huntsman. I like to watch the sun set of an evening, and just chill. I think its the whole working with kids thing. I kind of enjoy living on my own but still need some company. Sole possession of the remote control. very important.

Hi! I am a 25 year old law student from Lund, a small city in southern Sweden. I am in Melbourne for the exchange program at the University of Melbourne. I will probably be busy during the whole semester since I plan on doing a bit of traveling, joining some of the student organisations and of course studying. For the last 5 years I've been living with other people so I think that I've learned alot about how you should behave when you are sharing housing with other people. If I am going to share accomodation with you I will be respectful of your privacy, tidy and won't make any noise if I am coming home late at night. I especially think that it's important to keep the kitchen and the toilets clean. I am generally a social guy, but as I said I will probably not be at home that much, so you won't see too much of me. But when I am home I'm always up for chat. On my free time I usually like to read up on current events, go for a run, watch some tv-show or just hang out with some beers. If you think I would be suitable as a flatmate, I'd love to hear from you! Cheers!
