Hello there my name is Amy Young (20) and my boyfriend Aaron Stenhouse (23) are currently on our travels. We have recently been working at a special needs camp in America for the past four months and are now heading to Australia to travel for 6 months. We are looking for accommodation somewhere with easy access into the CBD by public transport, Max spending around $350 per week with access to the internet and amenities round the house. We will be planning to stay and work in Melbourne for around three months. We are currently looking for jobs in Melbourne and have applied to lots of places and waiting to hear back. Aaron used to study Sports and Recreation and I currently study Forensic Psychology at University. Our most recent jobs have been in retail and working with people with special needs as a lifeguard and counsellor. We are a clean, outgoing couple who love to see the sights and getting to socialise with new people.
I'm a 23 years old bartender from England, looking for an apartment in Melbourne till the start of February. Maybe even for a longer time. I'm really easygoing, very clean and tidy, love cooking, and like rugby, live music, and chilling out with friends.
HI. My name's Ari (short for Arianwen - it's Welsh) and I'm from the UK. I'm 33 and I just got a job with a charity in Melbourne. I'm currently waiting for a little more information on how long the visa process might take before booking my flights, but I'll be there by the end of October, or early November at the latest. My office will be on Flinder's Lane and ideally I'd like to be able to walk to work. My preferred areas would be the CBD, Carlton, Fitzroy, or maybe Richmond. I don't mind too much what the house is like, but good WiFi, a double bed (already furnished) and a noticeable absence of spiders would definitely spark my interest. I don't really mind who I share with but I'd probably prefer to be in a place with three or more rooms and flatmates who like to socialise every now and again. I know a few people in Melbourne already, but I'm always keen to meet new people. I'm a massive travel addict. I've spent most of the past four years backpacking through South and Central America, Asia and New Zealand, and I write a travel blog professionally, which sometimes gets me pretty awesome products or experiences to review. I love to scuba dive and recently did my divemasters in Indonesia. I also like to do silly things like bungy jumping every now and again. If you have any questions for me, let me know. It's really annoying that I can't actually view anywhere at the moment, but if you think I sound like the right kind of person drop me a message and I'll send you updates on my progress towards moving!
Hi there! I'm Irina, a full-time student at RMIT. I moved to Melbourne about a year ago from Queensland, I'm super easy going and friendly, but I definitely appreciate some down time. I'm looking for a permanent place, or somewhere temporary until I can figure it all out! I like netflix, reading and dogs, but I'm also down to be social if that's your thing.
Hi everybody, I'm Rando, 30 years old and I am an italian architect. I will be in Melbourne on 31 Oct. and I looking for a room. I've got a Work and Holiday Visa ( 1 year). Clean, respect privacy and sociable. If you could help me, please feel free to contact me.
Hi, I'm Elya! I've been in Melbourne for almost 3 years, originally from Malaysia. I'm currently an Arts student and will be graduating soon. Looking for a place to stay over the summer (but hopefully longer!) while I figure out what's next. Dates are sort of flexible. For potential roommates: I'm clean and tidy, still learning how to cook, not much into parties, here to listen to you vent over a glass of wine after a long day, and always up to binge watch tv shows. That being said, I will definitely respect your privacy and if you want to keep to yourself, that's cool too. If you're interested / want to know anything else, feel free to contact me! Bonus points if you have a cat.
Me and my girlfriend are a good option to live with because we are very calm and easy going couple, and we thing that is very important to respect the other flatmates and their own space. We also would like to live in a place where the flatmates are interested as us to maintain the common areas clean. We define ourself as a very friendly couple that love to relax on the weekends, by looking a good movie at home, having a good dinner or just a good conversation with some beers. Me and Francisca are interested to have a nice relationship and know more about our room mates, so we will be always open to share more than just the space on the appartment
*looking to 'team up' with at least 2 other girls and get a new place together in mid November :) Hello! Darwin girl originally, I moved to Melbourne in December 2015. I'm looking for roommates who can double as friends as I still don't really know anyone. I work full time during the week and my weekends vary from being a complete hermit to being a wild animal. I'm very outgoing and absolutely love meeting new people. I'm not for the sensitive or the faint hearted so if you don't like to joke around and laugh then we probably wouldn't be suited! Also, you must love dogs! I have a two year old Japanese Spitz named Evie. She is the cutest thing in the world. I want to live somewhere with at least a patch of grass. I'm very over cleaning the balcony! And I'm wanting to move to the south east suburbs close to public transport. Anywho, my current lease runs out at the beginning of December so I'd like to find a place to live in mid November at the latest! :)
I'm easy to live with. I enjoy a clean place, respect other people's privacy and will also expect the same from my future flatmate(s). I'm a non-smoker and will prefer to live with people who don't smoke in the house. I'm a consultant at an audit firm based in Southbank. I like Indie music, enjoy trying out new brunch spots, catching up with friends and binge-watching my favourite sitcoms over the weekend!I'm looking for a minimum of 6 months with the possibility of staying on after. I'm looking to move in 1 Dec.
We both very easy going, clean, respect each others, really like traveling, love nature, food, movies, wine, cheese and chocolate for sure 😊
I work nights, so I do not 'live' in my room as some housemates may, I am social and like to potter around the house, I cook so if I am not at work or sleeping I might be in the kitchen making something. I am easy going and looking to rent a room that I can call home and enjoy living in, I am clean and tidy and responsible. I am only interested in Places in the state Victoria as i am not interested in moving states.
Moving to Melbourne from Sydney as I am starting a new full time role for a large corporate firm in Docklands. I am really easy going, friendly, love to cook and clean and love a tidy home. Pet friendly, enjoy keeping fit and active, enjoy company of others, can be social as well as enjoy my nights in also.
We are Andi and Jutta, 29 and 32, and we are looking for a longterm accommodation in Melbourne. We are both working full time, Andi as a chef and Jutta as a waitress.

So good food is guaranteed. :-) We are responsible, clean and take good care of our stuff and where we live.
I'm Alberto and i'm looking for a place to stay at least 6 months. I have a working holiday visa and i want to find a job in hospitality. I'm friendly and with previous experience in sharing a house, so no problems about housekeeping and bills. I like to play tennis, to swim and go to the gym. Also if there is a chance to go out and have some fun why not. I'm going to arrive in Melbourne the 28th of october and i will stay in a hostel until the 3rd of november, so it will be a pleasure to find something for that date. Thank you very much. Alberto

I´m a friendly, tidy and respectful person and I have gained 'share house experience' for over 5 years.

Hey guys, I'm an aspiring pastry chef looking for a place in the centre close to southern cross station. I am easy going, neat and extremely easy to live with. I am looking for a job so will mostly be out of the house most of the time. Not big on home parties so should be a quiet flatmate for the most part. I love hiking, painting and baking in my free time. I always have something sweet in the fridge that I am happy to share! :) Look forward to staying with some fun people!
Hey folks! My name is Octavio, and I am a fun and outgoing international student from Mexico, currently studying a master of Advertising at RMIT University. I have lived for the past year and a half with 3 friends in an amazing apartment within the CBD, but unfortunately the landlord will sell the property and asked us to move. About me: I spend my time either at uni, work or out socializing. I enjoy hanging out with friends, meeting new people, reading, drinking beer, among other standard stuff that 20 somethings like to do. In the past I have lived in NY, London, Shanghai and Melbourne. So based on my past experiences with roommates and flatmates, I would say that I am very easy to live with, very aware of personal space and like to share a beer/wine over a good chat when we bump into each other. Cheers!
I am student and will graduate next month. At the end of december i will go back to my country just to extend the visa then i will be back to Melbourne soon. I really need proper room because i live in living room at the moment, and its not convenient for me. Hopefully i can stay with you. I am fun and flexible person.
Greetings! I'm Sara and have returned from travelling Europe and some of Australia this year. I come back to a job as a social worker and am looking for a share house ideally with one other person. I am quite tidy, enjoy socialising but having alone time, adore cooking and going to food markets, go to yoga most days and up for trying new experiences. Looking for a place where I can chill out without any stress (my job can offer enough of it!) and looking for someone who is fair, friendly and reliable. Looking forward to connecting with people too!
Hi I'm Agustin (you can call me Tito) I'm from Chile!! Currently working in a furniture factory full time, and will start another job (part-time) as well. I'm looking for something right away since I have been in a hostel for too long and I have like 6 or 7 months left in this city. I don't mind getting a group and finding a house. I'm very friendly, quite, empathetic when it comes to living with other people, I clean after myself, I'm organized with my things, I like to cook a little bit, watch documentaries, music, stay chillin at home most of the time and occasionally to go out wild to chapel Street/acland street/CBD/whatever... I smoke but I don't mind going outside if it is THAT big of a deal. I respect other people's space but would also enjoy socialising with the people I live with and entertaining my or your friends! :)
I'm 27 years old, living in Perth but moving to Melbourne likely in the next month. I'm excited for a change of scene, to spend some time in Melbourne city, and to meet new people. I work in the mental health field and usually keep myself fairly busy. I'm interested in keeping fit, healthy eating, reading, Netflix, and like to go out for dinner, drinks and movies/theatre. I'm clean (but not obsessive), tidy, and think it is important to have respect for one's home and shared belongings. I think it's important to be friends with your housemate(s) and to be able to communicate about house matters, but also have respect for one another's space. I've lived in shared homes before and generally find this an enjoyable living situation.
I'm an international student, 32 years old, ex-graphic designer, now getting into early childhood education. Easy going, working and studying, quite busy, tidy and organized, love to learn about everything, movies, comics, respectful with personal spaces.

Hi all! My name is Aaron and I'm currently looking for a place preferably bayside or on the fringe of the CBD. I've been in Melbourne all of my life and could not see myself living anywhere else in the world. I work full time in bank valuations and am studying concurrently. I'm easy to talk to, like to keep tidy, am fairly active and will use any excuse to get out and about but at the same time, I do relish the opportunity to kick my feet up and read or listen to music.
Hi! My name is Lauri and I'm a 28 year old guy from Helsinki, Finland. I'm a multimedia designer by trade and usually work in the creative fields. I'm in Australia on a working holiday visa and planning to spend the following months in the awesome city of Melbourne. Currently my long term plans are pretty open so therefore I'm looking for a short term lease on a private room in a nice shared house/apartment with nice roommates. Ideally I would like to rent a room for the next 3 months or so, but I'm also open for shorter and maybe longer deals. I'm a responsible, clean, open-minded and an easy-going person. I'm into music and all kinds of arts in general. I like to spend my free time going to gigs and exhibitions and also hanging out with friends and watching movies etc. I'm used to sharing apartments with other people and can appreciate a nice community as well as privacy. Contact me if you have a spare room that I might be interested!
Hello, I'm Steven and I'm an easy going Canadian on a working holiday and will be working full-time in Melbourne for the next few months. Looking for a 3 month rental. I'm a clean and tidy person and won't leave my dishes unwashed, I may even clean yours if it is there. I enjoy travel of course but also like to stay active and enjoy playing sports. I like exploring new destinations and experiencing new things.
Hi! My name is Makensie. I'm 30 and after travelling abroad for the majority of my 20's, I have decided to call Melbourne home. I have recently finished studying (was a bit of a shock heading to uni as a mature age student) and am now a practicing Myotherapist on the Southside. Currently working on achieving a healthy work/life balance, I'm just getting into the swing of things post university. When I'm not at work, I'm catching up with friends, exercising, cooking (don't be fooled, I'm no chef) or checking out professional and personal development work shops. I'm a bit of a hippie at heart, I enjoy meditation and am partial to burning incense. I don't take myself too seriously though and appreciate good banter! My goal this year is to push myself out of my comfort zone ticking the things off my bucket list that I continue to put on hold for 'later'. I'm looking for a household that feels like a home. I'm independent and enjoy spending time with housemates but do like my own space also and am looking for housemates who appreciate this too. Ultimately, a clean, relaxed, fun, cheerful household where housemates are mindful of each other and work as a team when it comes to getting house jobs done. Close to public transport, cafes etc, is also important. Prefer to organise my own food, though happy to share condiments/have a kitty to fund household needs eg: loo paper.

Hey I'm Liam, I'll be starting uni at RMIT next year in feb and I'm looking for a place to stay. I'm a tidy person and have always looked after myself. Cooking, cleaning, washing clothes etc. I try to get to the gym every day, and I'm generally very easy going. i have a PS4 and a Alienware pc both of which are basically very expensive Netflix viewers by this point but I game occasionally. A little bit about what I'm looking for: I would like to live with 2+ other people i don't care if guys or girls. I'd like for my roommates to be around my age (18). And not afraid to go out and have a good time. I have a car but I'll be catching public transport into he city a lot so a place near public transport would be good. I think that's about it. Hit me up if you're interested in having me 😀
I'm quiet around the house and live a normal 9-5 working life at a major bank. I don't like to party or even drink alcohol/smoke and enjoy the peace and quiet(I've been told I don't snore so I would be a good person to share a room with!), but I'm always up for a friendly nice chat about anything (particularly about anything to do investments and building wealth)or get togethers. I like to have a simple minimalist lifestyle approach so I consider myself quite clean and orderly. I've had experience living overseas and have used Airbnb as well so I'm quite comfortable and easy-going with other people from all backgrounds. Keen to share a place with like-minded people and maybe learn a thing or two from each other.
