Ashton

Looking in: Fairfield, Northcote, Coburg, Thornbury, Brunswick

Hello, Ashton's the name they gave me, born 1989 making me 27 years of age. I am a hard working, fully employed Machinist/Setout Coordinator working in the commercial interior industry. Generally a 7 - 3:30 Monday to Friday gig with the occasional weekend. So I've got my side of the bills covered. Generally I keep busy either playing sport or hitting the F45 circuits. Pretty much 5-6 days a week. I can motivate if your wanting a gym partner. When I do have a chance to slow down, I'm always up for a casual beer, domination of the old board game or some social bonding. Being new to Melbourne it would be nice to make some friends instead of the occasional greeting to the old housemate in the other room. Having done the house share thing for some time, I pull my weight around the house, clean up after myself and generally respect others needs for cleanliness and space.

Ollie

Looking in: Carlton North, Northcote, Brunswick East, Brunswick, Princes Hill

My name is Ollie, I’m 25 years old, Architecture student at University of Melbourne. I have been share housing at my current townhouse in Northcote for 2 years, however the owner has just decided to sell! I am originally a refugee and have been living in Australia as a permanent resident for the past 6 years 😊 I currently work as a duty manager at Coles and have additional help from Centrelink for my studies. I am a friendly, social, clean & tidy, easy going, non-judgmental, driven guy who has his own thing going on, and have remained good friends with those I have lived with. I love to hang out for a drink, head out to dinner or share meals with others whenever the time calls for it and put effort into making the house feel like a home, and I also respect the space and boundaries of others. I love to head out into nature on the weekends for hiking or camping, or go and see bands with friends, and am generally very keen to learn as much as I can about Australian culture and improve on my English (my current housemate helped me write this :P). If you think I sound like a good fit, I’d love to come over to meet you and check out the place. I’m also happy to provide references too. Hope to hear from you soon, Ollie

Amanda

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

Hi! I'm Amanda. I'm a 31 year old Californian, new to Melbourne. I'm a laid back gal who loves travel, yoga, scuba diving, red wine, and photography. I'm a vegetarian, but totally comfortable with other people's eating habits. I like to keep things clean, but some clutter doesn't bother me. I work from home in marketing for now until I find a job here in Melbourne. I hope to find a somewhat social house share where I can share a beer or a meal with my roommates sometimes and also have a quite, private space of my own. My move in date would ideally be around late August, but I have some flexibility for a good fit. If I sound like a good fit for your space, I would love to hear from you! :)

I work in the CBD in recruitment, and am at the gym most weeknights. Weekends are generally spent winding down with mates, and good scotch. I'm not looking for a party house, just a place to call home with like-minded people that are cool to have their own lives, but share the occasional meal and drink.

Jarrod

Looking in: Northcote, Carlton North, Fitzroy, Brunswick East, Brunswick

Look no further - you've stumbled on the perfect housemate! I’m Jarrod, 33 and I study engineering full-time, and work in hospitality part-time. I like the outdoors, board games, music, AFL, delish food, and pub trivia among other things. I’ve just returned from a semester abroad and have just started back at RMIT, so I'm looking for a place to move into ASAP, and ideally stay long-term. I’m easy-going, clean and tidy without being obsessive, social, respectful, responsible etc. I have a few household items that may come in handy, including a fridge, TV, and table-tennis table. I can either bring these or leave them in storage. I'm looking for a house/apartment where I can feel at home, share the occasional meal, drink, and night in front of the TV. I’m not looking for a party house, but I do enjoy the occasional soiree and am totally fine with friends visiting and staying over every now and then. I'm also a public transport user, so close to trains/trams/buses/bike trails would be great too. Drop me a line – I’d love to swing by to meet you and take a look at your place!

Meg

Looking in: Fitzroy North, Northcote, Carlton, Brunswick

Independent and social. I'm pretty active and enjoy being out as much as being home. I'm keen on living in a house where everyone enjoys a chat and a drink together when the timing is right. I have a minimal approach (ie not much furniture haha) but still manage to carry around my vinyl collection sans record player! I love gardens but my work hours can fluctuate a lot so I can't commit to that one... I moved to Melbourne less than a year ago and love it-even the weather!

Eirena

Looking in: Kensington, Elwood, Prahran, South Yarra, Port Melbourne, Northcote, Albert Park, Williamstown, Seddon, Thornbury, Altona

Hi future houseshare, I run my own space clearing declutter business so I am very respectful of spaces and keeping them tidy. I have travelled with my work all over the world and have stayed in many airbnbs, holiday rentals, hotels as well as private homes. My friends call me the bed whisperer :) I like to use my home base as a chill zone and focus on my business. I will usually go out to see a movie or hang with friends, I don't drink or smoke or party I did all of that in my younger years. I love one to one conversations and not into small talk, in fact I like to keep to myself mostly. Not in an weird way locked in my room, more about meditating and working, so I like to be free of distractions. I love to cook and love watching the odd rubbish tv show occasionally. I have an easy light personality so not into drama or heavy negative energies. Spontaneous dancing may occur. I practice Qigong and Kundalini Yoga and will finish my Lomi Lomi Massage Training at the end of this year in Hawaii. I love to laugh and believe everyone deserves to be respected and listened to. Because my business is about CLARITY, I like to discuss and clarify what is expected in the domestic running of the house, so that there is no room for confusion. It's also important to be aware of boundaries. Really look forward to finding a space that feels like "home" .... and chatting with you soon Thanks Eirena ( aka ell ) PS Some things that are important on my list. -NBN Internet is very necessary for my work -I run my own business, so my hours vary, so when you ask full time and mean the conventional 9 t0 5- that's not me. -I really would like a place with a bath tub - Love love love gardens, so prefer a house to an apartment

William

Looking in: Kingsbury, Coburg, Thornbury, Preston, Thomastown, Reservoir

Hi guys, Thanks for checking out. Wonder if anyone are keen to house hunt with me or have a large room for rent? Both my housemate and I are renting and sharing a 2 BR unit for the past 7 yrs in reservoir. Love my room size but We were given notice to vacate the unit by 13/9/17 due to owner wants to renovate his property (tile the floors, renovate the bathroom, car garage, etc). My housemate has already secured accommodation to move in his sis's place while i'm still looking for a place. We have kept the unit about the same condition as when we moved in 7 yrs ago. So can say we are good tenants. About myself- 39 yrs old male (don't drink or smoke) Self employed working professional (mostly out working or just out) easy to get along type Basically just like everyone else. We do our own thing, pay our rent and bills on time. Current rent I pay - $160/w + share bills (wouldn't mind to pay a bit more for the right place). An ideal if you have just moved in a 2 BR empty house/unit. I can help chip in for the fridge, washing machine, sofa etc. Prefer to have a garage/car port or be able to park on driveway as I've over $1000 worth of stock in my car boot. (I m onsite computer technician). Thanks
