I’ve just moved to the Ballina/Lennox Head area for a business development training program I’ve been accepted in to that starts the week of the 19th Feb in Ballina. I’m looking for a room to call home in the Ballina/Lennox Head area for at least the next 6-12 months, probably longer if all works well. I’m neat and tidy, non smoker, reliable and honest single female who loves the beach, most water sports and yoga. I enjoy a glass of wine or two with good friends and good food. I’ll be working part time when I’m not studying or growing my business. I've travelled extensively, am an Airbnb Super Host and have lived in many different countries and situations so I understand what’s involved when living in a share house. I’m tolerant, patient, I clean up after myself, pay my bills on time, and do my share of the housework. I’m also willing to consider a work/swap arrangement in exchange for cheaper rent depending on what’s required. If you think you've got an ideal room for me to call home, please get in touch. I look forward to meeting you.

I am hardly home as I travel so much throughout Australia. I am trauma nurse from Sydney but my home base is Skennars Head as most of my family are here. I now travel throughout QLD and NSW nursing in ED. I am tidy (OCD) and keep to myself but love a good conversation and a beer every now and then. Love dogs more than humans!

Hello future housemates! Yes if we live together we should be friends 😉 A bit about me... Well traveled with loads of share house experience (8 years backpacking the globe working holidays and trips in my 20’s) Single Healthy human, mind and body, looking for a friendly house, but also with own space. i hear Lennox or suffolk park has the vibe, the location, and the beach and I cant wait to settle there :). I am a working professional (surveyor engineer) and have won a 2 year contract near ballina. I like to keep house clean as a whistle, and judge free. My friends describe me as passive, and I deal with any issues in real time and get over them just as quick. In my spare time you will find me learning to surf on my mini mal, trail running and exploring national parks, triathlon training, fishing, camping, or doing some activity. I Also love cooking low and slow bbq 😁 and have 2 webers to cook on (gas and charcoal) ribs are my specialty. Happy to cook family roasts for my housemates :) and Have a backyard DIY spit roast too for the special events throw on a pig or a lamb! My latest toy is a 3.5m tinny boat with two spare seats and some fishing gear. Love getting out on the river. Im moving up from yamba where there are magic spots. I hope to find like minded people to share accomodation. Going on a lease is no issue as i am looking for long term. Cheers Tim

Looking in: Suffolk Park, Lennox Head, East Ballina

Hey there, I am a full time PhD student at Southern Cross University in Lismore where I also work as a demonstrator/tutor. So I am in Lismore most days of the week. When I'm off I enjoy spending time outside in or on the water, be it sailing or surfing, two great passions of mine! I also love dancing and travel as far as the Gold Coast for a night of latin or brasilian dancing. I am pretty chill and laid back to live with and would love to find a nice share house, or team up with 1 or 2 like-minded people to find a new lease preferably somewhere in Lennox Head or Suffolk Park close to the beach (for obvious reasons). I am in my third year and prefer to find something long-term, I will still be here for at least another year, so a 12-month lease would be great to avoid moving in the last months of my PhD. I like my home to be clean and tidy and not a party house but I love having friends over for dinner or a BBQ and also love to share a housemate home-cooked meal and a few cold beverages! :) If that sounds like a good fit, please get in touch. Thanks, Laura

Hi, I'm Phil. Needing to find a place ASAP. I'm currently studying a Diploma of remedial massage in Kingscliff 2-3 days/wk and working part time. I'm a well travelled former professional sportsman and have additional qualifications in fitness and coaching. I'm a bit slower moving these days but even though I'm no longer competitive, I still enjoy regular outdoor activity. Some of my favourite pastimes are (but not limited to) fishing, surfing, whitewater kayaking, gardening, and bush/beach walks. I also like to cook. I'm an honest and straightforward, fairly private, well ordered person looking for a similar type to share the benefits of living in a largish 3/4br house (i.e. someone who wants some space..keeps mutual living areas clean and hygenic to maintain usability and comfort..doesn't mind the occasional drink but not a big partier.. and obviously..someone who pays their rent/bills on time). If you smoke, I only ask that you smoke outside. I'm currently living in the north part of the Gold Coast but looking to move to the Ballina area ASAP for family reasons and to take advantage of everything the location offers (i.e. beaches, boating, fishing, bike tracks etc). My 14yo son will be living with me full time (going to Ballina Coast High) and my 12yo daughter will be staying a maximum 3 nights/fortnight, so you must be kid friendly. They are generally polite, energetic and well behaved kids and I prefer to get them out on weekends to do things rather than sit around all day doing nothing. I'm a hands on, loving Dad, but also keep a tight reign when necessary. I'd prefer a single working person or full time student to share with (you'd probably be looking at around $180-220/wk rent depending on total cost/wk of the property, as well as a negotiated fair share of other bills). A few chores around the home would be expected also (i.e. lawnmowing, share of the housework etc). Looking for long term situation. I'm also open to sharing with another single/lone parent (probably looking at 50:50 share of rent and bills). However, this may bring difficulties in the dynamic of things and may not be the best option... but I'm happy to meet and discuss with serious potential housemates who are considerate of others). Lastly, but very importantly, i have a big beautiful 4yo ridgeback X bullarab girl called Sally who i'd love to keep with me (depending on availability of appropriate rentals). She is non- aggressive, non-destructive, really quiet, and very friendly/playful (especially with kids), although she can sometimes be a bit clumsy. She has always lived outside and gets on well with other dogs. If you're interested, please don't hesitate to send me a quick email telling me a bit about yourself and your current circumstances and I'd be more than happy to begin a conversation with you. I'll be in the area next Wednesday 8th February and spasmodically thereafter so can meet for a coffee and perhaps look at a few places..

Hi guys, Tahwa here Moving from Newcastle to preferably Ballina as I am a recent engineering graduate about to start full-time work on the pacific highway in that area. I have lived in share houses for the last few years as well as done a bit of travelling so you can rest assured that I know how to being a courteous and pleasant housemate! Likes: soccer, beach and learning new things. Dislikes: Tabouli, red lights and bindies. Other then that I'm a pretty chilled dude who's always up for a good chat and cool beverage on a Friday afternoon. I have noticed there aren't alot of options offered for flatmates in Ballina but there are quite a few decent priced rental properties going for 3-4 shares, I'd happily make a group if anyone was interested! Cheers!

I've just relocated down for work on the Pacific Highway upgrade. I usually spend most nights reading or watching Netflix, but am up for a quiet drink. I enjoy playing soccer and can't wait for the season to kick off. I clean up after myself and keep noise to a minimum. I have a 11y/o black female indoor cat who loves to sleep all day. She's quiet and recluse. She has never bitten or scratched anyone (including small children).

I am a friendly, easy going and considerate person who is looking for a place to call home not just a house, and for people to call family/friends not just housemates :) I love the outdoors, in my free time you will more often than not find me at the beach, discovering national parks, waterfalls, forests in my van or practicing yoga! I am eco conscious, vegetarian, love to cook and am interested in all things health/alternative lifestyles related. As a housemate I am clean, respectful and keen on being part of a household that cooks together and cares for one another. I am a social worker and have recently moved from Sydney. I'm not a big party animal but love to socialise and am looking to set some roots around Byron area and meet like minded people :)
