I'm a Southern Californian native born and raised, have the greenest of thumbs, and the literal definition of a jack of all trades. Ain't nothin I can't do! Got my BA in Radio, TV, and Film, owned my own business for a while before moving to Japan for 4 years to teach English. I love-love-LOVE languages. Aspiring to be a true polyglot. I'm currently a bartender and I LOVE it (my one cool trick is pouring rainbow shots, so heeeeey), and I'm on a work and holiday visa for the foreseeable year (get into Melbourne on August 10th). Looking to find someplace to call home, not do the backpacker thing. I'd love to stay long term somewhere, just put in 3 months to give me wiggle room for snatching up a job. I'm no stranger to the city, spent a few weeks there in the summer about 3 years ago. LOVE it. As a Californian, I know all about fire season and droughts, so no worry about being Eco-conscious here! I'm clean, organized, and very self-aware. I highly respect quiet and alone time, but love a few beers and a night out, or sharing a home-cooked meal (I like to bake...I hope you like to eat). My go-go dancing days in Osaka might be behind me but I still know how to have fun, whether in a group dynamic or by myself. If you wanna settle in for a movie night or board games I'm SO there! I've just learned how to make a mean egg foo young, and my butt has a costco card so heeeeeey ya'll live-in bartender with perks here! :D **My one caveat for full-disclosure: I haven't entered the country yet so I'll be coming in without a job (obviously, though I'm working on that on this end) but I'm bringing enough cash with me to give me wiggle room while I look (we're fine and dandy for a while folks!) but I'm hoping to find full-time employment either bartending... or just anywhere to make a wage! :D I -am- concerned about signing longer leases (just planning for the worst) in case it's impossible to find employment and I have to credit-card a plane ticket back home like a failure-face. Though if I hit the pavement running then that shouldn't be a problem! Just wanted to get that out there, I don't feel cool not disclosing that :) Ideally I'd like to spend my entire visa year in one place to call home :) -Need a place with internet -Private, furnished room -Short stay (~2 months) with room to increase stay (I shouldn't sign a longer lease if I can't find employment first, right? :D Hell if you know a place hiring then I'm down to sign a year lease!) I've been around, held all kinds of jobs, have all kinds of hobbies, and love all kinds of people. I'm animal-friendly and super easy-going; also open to more places than those general suburbs I've listed, and willing to pay more on rent if bills and internet are included, just an FYI. :) If you think we'd get along then I'd love to be your housemate! :) Any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to ask! I'm an open book :)
Hi there! I am currently a Psychology student in Deakin Waurn Ponds. I am in my third year and probably will go on to study more! I have previous shared accomodation experience and am respectful to my housemates. I am accepting of anyone and everyone. I am very tidy don't worry haha! The house will be well looked after. I love cooking and might even offer to cook meals here and there if I get a chance! I work 2 jobs, I day job and 1 night job. I like going out with friends, but I also do value my alone time to think and relax at the same time. Sometimes, a good night with Netflix simply takes the cake! I'm easy to get along with and love a good chat. I will be a great asset to your home! It says 6 months on my page, but that is only the minimum. Same with move in date, am flexible with that one. Let me know if you have any other questions :)
Hi, my name is Claire, and I am a 24 yo female working in the NGO sector. I am a very social person and love to make my house a home. I respect my housemate's privacy, but also love to come together over wine and cheese on occasions! I am also quite neat and tidy, and take pride in the home i am living in. I enjoy sport ( i play hockey, and love to hike, swim, and partake in anything outdoors!) On the weekends I also love live music, a few glasses of wine with friends, and dining out! Originally from the South Coast of NSW, I have been living in Sydney for the last 7 years, but I am about to make the move to Melbourne, as I have received a job offer in Melbs! My job would be starting 11th September, so I would be hoping to move in early September sometime, but quite flexible!
Easy going couple who travel a lot so only looking for a short term stay. Matt is from Melbourne and Anja is from South Africa, both working and will help in upkeep in and around the house. We like a clean space and pull our share in that regard. Non smokers. Great peeps.
Hello there people of Melbournia, I am on the lookout for a South Yarra (or as close as) spacious room with some lovely people to share a home with. Move in by early August! I'm the kind of housemate who's guilty pleasure is trashy T.V, will keep the fridge stocked with hummus and can make a mean avocado on toast. I am a young full time professional, working as a Marketing Assistant as well as running my own business; Board Art Melbourne. I'm hoping someone will read this and think "what a coincidence I have a room AND it's in South Yarra (or as close as) I'm going to message Claire because she sounds awesome." MESSAGE ME :D
Hey there :) My name is Aaron, I'm a 22 year old male. I'm looking for somewhere new to live. Currently I reside with my parents in Hillside (Melbourne West). Prior to this I lived in Ballarat for a year under a lease contract with a few people of similar age. I work full time as an Electrician, well, almost..... (Fourth Year Apprentice). A normal working week for me is 7-3:30, Monday-Friday. I work on commercial buildings, normally in docklands or the city. I have a steady reliable income. I am generally a clean and tidy person. I pride myself on having a good work ethic, which translates to my home life AND work life. I like it when everyone shares the work load. I refuse to live with anyone who is lazy! On the flip slide, I would love to live with anyone who is like minded in their living preferences! :) I'm always up for doing my fair share of housework (including cooking). Personality wise, I'm generally fairly friendly. I try my best to get along well with everyone I meet. I can be a little quiet at times. My main hobby is music. I play acoustic guitar and I also sing, not usually too much during the week though due to time! I love going to gigs. I also like Footy and Tennis! Sometimes I play video games. My free time usually just consists of watching TV, practicing music, socialising and just generally relaxing. What I'm looking for is to live with people within my age bracket who are like minded. I'm not too fussed about what whether you work or you are a student. Personality is the main thing! As long as you are genuine and able to afford living expenses I'm happy :)
My sister and I are both students receiving regular payments from Centrelink. Im currently in the middle of moving to Melbourne for study & work opportunities as a model. I am available to move in asap with my older sister. We are both quiet natured, clean and easy to live with!
Hey! My Name's Nathan and I'm looking to move from my current place in St Kilda into the eastern suburbs area. I spend a large majority of my time here, and the constant travel from St Kilda is beginning to wear a little thin! Also, as I have been living alone lately, moving into a sharehouse is exciting as i miss living with awesome people having awesome fun! I currently work full time at Bunnings (yes I can get us cheap stuff for the house haha) and when i'm not at work I'm either with my amazing girlfriend, chilling on the PS4, religiously watching NBA or out on my bike.....or at the pub! I've lived in Melbourne for over 3 years after moving down from Wollongong, and I absolutely love this city. My ideal house would include a fun, chilled atmosphere where everyone gets along. The kind of place where you can come home from work, crack a beer and relax with everyone else.
I'm Virginia, a quiet, keep-to-myself tidy type who loves TV, reading and dining out. A few notes about me and what I'm looking for: - I'm only looking for a woman of similar age to start a share house with - I'm retired so will spend time at home, as well as out with friends and appointments etc. - I'm looking to have my own defined space: my own bedroom, bathroom and living area - happy for this to be a third bedroom though. - I have a small house's worth of furniture, fridge, washer/dryer etc, happy if my housemate is the same and to compromise, keep some in the garage or shed etc if it doesn't all fit! - I have one adult daughter who's left the nest but we're close - no partner and no other family in Melbourne - I currently have no pets, but love all animals, especially dogs! I'd ideally like to get my own dog in the future so if you have pets and we find a place that is happy with them from the get-go, even better! - I would like to keep to myself mostly, but happy with some social interaction! I'm a kind, big-hearted person and a good listener who loves telling stories. - My lease is up in March so that's when I'm looking to move in the outer East or so - if you think we could get along, send me a message!
We are a laid back couple originally from the UK who have been travelling around all of Asia for the past 3/4 months and are hoping to stay in the Melbourne area for 6-9 months to increase our travel funds with our working holiday visa! I was working as a bartender for over a year to start my travel funds. However, I predominantly have a background in Psychology and have recently just got back from working in Sri Lanka for three months running therapy sessions in local psychiatric hospitals, while my boyfriend was a manager of a local bar/pub. We enjoy cooking (we are big foodies!), having a casual drink, scuba diving and travelling (obviously!). We are a clean, friendly and sociable couple but are not party animals by any means and still enjoy our quiet time. We are open minded people who love to learn about new cultures and enjoy making friends from all over the world.
Hello flatmates! My name is Ed and I am a Londoner soon making a move to Melbourne for a working holiday. I am web developer by trade and maintain an interest in technology in general. I also enjoy gaming, socialising and outdoor activities. I am a clean and considerate individual who respects my surroundings.
Hi all, I'm from the UK and start my new consulting job in Melbourne on 28th August (with a 2 year visa). I've booked my flights and will be available to meet from 20th August. I have some temporary accommodation sorted until I find somewhere more permanent, so moving in dates for Sept would work. I'm easy going, tidy, and enjoy running, gym, yoga, swimming. I like to spend time with friends, eating out, watching movies. I'd be interested to create a new house share or join an existing one :)

Some things that are on my wishlist but aren't deal breakers: -NBN or fast internet -Garage/Shed for tinkering Some things that are important to me: -Unfurnished room - I have my own stuff -Parking (permit/off street or quiet street)
Hi guys, Omni here! I'm a rather obsessive love of the colour green, I also like traveling, good coffee/tea, crafts, theater, music, cooking, plants, candles, computer games! *Neat & tidy *Social but respects privacy *Not a party animal but can appreciate a shared meal or a couple of drinks. *I identify as an androgyne, pansexual and polyamorous. I'm currently living in regional NSW but hoping to make the move back to Melbourne (where I've lived a few years previously). I'm a palliative nurse by trade and currently looking for work, although I'm hoping to find something a bit more chill (call centre, desk job ect) after spending the last 5 and a bit years as a live in nurse for a family member. (Hoping to find a place that's no more than $250 a week inclusive of bills or there abouts and a place to park my car (Bertie)!)
Hi, my name is Chiara and I am a full-time teacher. I have lived in Victoria for more than four years and now I am moving to Melbourne in August. I would like to find a place to share in the Eastern suburbs. I am easy going, clean, reserved and tidy.
Hello, I'm Elliot, currently in the suburbs of Melbourne. Looking to move sometime in the near future. In no rush, but would be good to meet new people and find a great place. I am a fairly normal guy, friendly and generally a happy person. I just got into full time work and around that I like to exercise most days and socialise when I can. Also like days to really chill too, respectful that people need to relax, I'm a pretty laidback person. Around that I like to go out for drinks and eat out more than I should.. Not a neat freak but would definitely say I'm clean and like to live in a clean space. 6 months was a guide, would like to stay in a place longer if all works out well
Hi, I'm a professional Nanny moving back to Melbourne. Im easy to get along with and don't like living in a mess. Not a big party person but do enjoy a few drinks with friends.

I'm looking for a place from July to December/ January.
Hi guys! I'm Lucie, I'm a musician and artist (so naturally I work in hospo) and I'm looking for somewhere nice, chill, and clean to live. I've been living in a sharehouse for three years, mainly with dudes, but right now I'd love to live with some other gals for once haha (unless you're cleaner than my friends!). I like a lil beer every now and then, but I also like some time to myself to work. I've just come back from travelling around Russia, and I have nowhere to live, so I'm basically ready to move in whenever!
Hi! I'm Charlie and I am moving from the UK to Melbourne on the 3rd of August to do some temp work at a travel company I currently work for in the UK which also has an office in Melbourne. I am 22, love going to the gym, a massive foodie, going out for cocktails with friends, but at the same time I love a quiet night in watching movies etc! I also love to cook! I'm going to be moving to Melbourne on my own not knowing anyone so would love a flat/house mate(s) to help settle me in. I am a country girl where I live in a tiny little village where everyone knows everyone and I am really keen to experience the city life! My office will be based in the Essendon North area so need to live reasonably close to good transport so I can reach here each day, I will be working Mon-Fri 9-5. My boyfriend will also be flying out to join me during September so we are ideally looking for somewhere which will accept couples after a month or so of being on my own.
Hi! I am Raksha, a student from India. I go to Monash Caulfield. I am easy and fun to live with, very social and can't wait to meet you! :D
