I am a fulltime working single Mum who is very easy going and well organised and love cooking. My daughter and I have lived in a rental unit on our own but have the need now to live in a house and found it just a bit difficult to do this on my own.

I am a friendly, but initially shy 28yr old with a love of the performing arts, a Pilates studio receptionist and temp worker and also studying natural therapies. I really enjoy running and hiking and love going on day trips with my pack on. I enjoy a community atmosphere and wish to interact with housemates and become friends, not just merely live with people you don't know. Would love to lived with those that share. Share food, share music, share stories, share experiences. I prefer a household without a TV, or at least not have it on all the time blaring nonsense. More than happy to enjoy some documentaries or some movies or Netflicks from time to time though! We can make our own entertainment! I used to live in the hills but moved into Thornbury to be closer to uni, but now wish to move back out again. I need the fresher air, the space, the trees and a calmer way of being. I'm looking for people who can think critically, are creative and expressive, incorporate spiritual practice into their lives and homes and are gentle souls. I like housemates to be considerate of others by cleaning up after themselves, not continually slamming doors and heavy stomping etc. Ask others if they would like anything from the shops if you are going, or offer to do someones dishes if they are running late. I am a vegetarian, but don't mind what other people's preferences are. It tends to be easier for people to look after their own shopping, but more than happy to chip in for veggie boxes in people do that, and definitely up for sharing dinners and baking experiments!! I don't have any pets, but am more than happy to move in somewhere that does have an animal or two! Any questions, ask away!! Thanks, Loz

Flatmate bio [spoiler alert: this is detailed AF. But you’ll appreciate it is necessary to find the right person to rent with and this gives you the complete run down on what i'm looking for, as well as everything you need to know to make an informed decision about wanting to live with me]. I’m moving back to Melbourne after over ten years away and seven years working professionally abroad. Heading back down in December and looking to rent something from mid month and be settled in time for xmas and new year. Planning ahead I know, but you tend to do that once you hit thirty, which is another notch on my belt this year. I’ve grown up in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne and after spending virtually all of my adult life away, I’m keen to settle back there for at least my first year back and be close to family and just live simply for a while. I’ve spent my first year back in Aus living out bush in central Queensland and have come to appreciate the basic and simple pleasures that come with taking a breath of fresh air, away from the complexities of metropolis. I’m therefore inclined to live out Upper Ferntree Gully way, I’ve even found a few nice looking houses around Upwey. There’s two schools of thought here, either a nice house with a decent yard and outdoor bbq area etc in that area of suburbia, or something that extra 5-10 minutes out that’s surrounded in greenery on something resembling an acreage etc. Its a decision based around whats going to be avail at the time I’d imagine, together with the housemate that I move in with. Budget wise, I’m comfortable with something in the realms of around $400 a week plus bills, which split in two will work out to no more than around $250 a week each. This seems like a sensible figure to work with, given that properties in the area for that amount of weekly rent are more than comfortable and plenty spacious with a third bedroom that can be used as a guest room. Foxtel and internet come into the equation and I anticipate sharing all costs to that effect. About me, I’ve built my career for the past ten years and currently continue to work in business and legal strategy. I’m also starting back at Uni to finish and advance my law degree. I spend a lot of time on my Mac therefore, and enjoy working and studying with either Pandora (currently playlisting a Halsey, Vera Blue, Banks mix) or TripleJ on in the background (and/or on my headphones). Not one for living in silence, albeit not that much of rage head either. Ok, apart from the occasional stint of something dance or rock every now and then. Life's about balance after all and you do need to rage sometimes aye. To whatever constraints exist with neighbours etc, obviously. No objections on my end to a music festival or Saturday night out at a bar, or even a cheeky midweek pub meal with some live music that’s for sure. I love the live Aussie and underground music scene. I work out during the week, and will get some gym equipment sorted for the garage, just because its easier and more enjoyable to do it on your own terms. Plus the whole hype at the gym shits me enough to not be bothered to spend too much time in one. Eat healthy (a lot of fresh produce and clean proteins), drink honestly next to nothing, although always have a few beers, a bottle of champers and some decent wine in the fridge just for when that mood strikes once in a blue moon or family/friends come around for dinner. Generally keep the pantry free of crap, as I’m not that interested in eating any of it and it just gets snacked on when lying around unnecessarily. I've always had a jar of gummie bears in the kitchen though - great post workout snack! I do however smoke, which is completely at odds with the above I know. But need to have the odd vice here an there I guess; and I enjoy a coffee with my smoke in the mornings - outside of course. Don’t do smoking indoors. And yeah on that note, I love to drink good coffee. All in all, I’m a friendly, outgoing and personable guy. I’m well travelled and pretty laid back, but I do enjoy my privacy to a certain extent and am not interested in having a “high traffic” household to live in. I’ve grown up a hell of a lot in recent years and have come to appreciate that having a few close friends around far outweighs randoms coming in and out like a revolving door. Like I said, it’s all about balance. Looking for someone around my age, guy or girl doesn’t phase me too much, that’s not too dissimilar in values and current life phase/situation and can relate to my style of living in a general sense. Not interested in someone too much younger as a housemate, unless you’re seriously on the ball. I’ve raised a younger brother and have lived with various mates over the years, younger than me and I honestly can’t be bothered with the baggage that’s attached to it. Pretty much not interested in kids or pets or any of that. Unless you make a solid case on the pet front (i've had two dogs and a cat for the past 14 years and kind of happy takin time out from it), kids I don’t do at all. So I guess this can be summarised as being basically a mutual expectation of an easy going and problem free approach to daily life and a level and mature head on your shoulders, as you can obviously expect from me. I enjoy living in a clean house, and don’t do mess. Ideally the right housemate will be alright with creating the right synergies in everything ranging from mutual grocery shops to a certain extent, some meals, occasional nights in/tv/movies or whatever together. Just all the kind of basics that makes for a cohesive dynamic in living together. Ok, so I’ve written more than enough (it’s what I do professionally so it’s more a matter of someone actually bothering to read down to this point). If you have managed to get this far, you’re probably someone I’d consider living with. I would imagine signing a 6-12 month lease to begin, jointly in both our names. That therefore means it’s going to be necessary to spend some time between now and Dec getting to know each other and making sure we’re on the same page so as to be able to put up a united front for the real estate agent etc. Not interested in getting into anything that’s got the potential to result in a break lease. Suffice to say, I don’t intend to be out of pocket should this occur, and is a mutual courtesy we should both expect. As the right person will appreciate, some simple stability in life is all you need at times. I’m currently in that place and just want all things to be pretty straightforward. The right person will have their finances in order and have no issue paying bond, rent at least a month in advance, etc. (That's all part of the stability and having life reasonably sorted kind of thing i've been talking about). Not sure whether to expect any genuine responses to my laundry list (I reckon that the devil is in the detail as with anything in life though..) But if you’re on the same page and this makes enough sense to you to peak your interest, drop me a line or two and lets chat.

I am a student looking to rent a place away from home, from July 17th to late Nov/early Dec. I live in the northern suburbia with my family, and currently undertaking placements as part of my degree, which requires moving away from home. I am pretty relaxed and very considerate of those around me. I act and speak with respect, however I am also very friendly and like to be around good and happy people. I am a very organised and tidy person. I respect privacy and understand that each of us may need some time to ourselves. I am looking for a place close to public transport as I do not drive yet, most ideally furnished. :)

Professional full time (software developer) working in CBD. Seeking a clean quiet room (happy to consider furnished and unfurnished) somewhere near Upper Ferntree Gully. Expect I will be 3-6 months, but may be longer, especially if the houseshare works out well. Have a small child living elsewhere, so housemates need to be OK with a well behaved child over time to time. I would like a secure garage place to park my car (expecting to pay extra for a room as a result), with the property within 10-15 mins walk to a train station, as I work in the CBD. I'm easy to get along with, will always pay my rent on time, and respect others space. I'm both happy to consider an existing property, as well as team up with other people to rent another property.

Hi, my name is Rob and I'm looking for a long-term stay in a nice, quiet house. I start a new job on Monday and I'll probably continue working part-time as an Uber driver as well. I've been full-time with Uber for the last 6 months. I won't drive late at nights - I much prefer to get up early and take people to work so an early-rising household would suit me. I'm generally home by 7 or 8pm weeknights, 10pm Friday and Saturday nights. My main interest is SCUBA diving, although I probably won't be doing much of that until winter's over. I will need some drying and storage space for dive gear, say a couple of square metres in the garage. I also like fishing and have a kayak which I'll need to store as well. Other than that I am pretty quiet and unassuming. I get on well with people but I also like to keep to myself as well. I drink very little, I really have to be in the mood and even then I'll only have 3 or 4 stubbies at most. I do NOT want to live in a "party house" I am a NON-SMOKER and, worse than that I am an EX-SMOKER!! :) I cannot tolerate 2nd-hand smoke so a totally non-smoking household is a must!! Hope to hear from you soon. Cheers, Rob

22 year old female. Have just finished uni and now working full time in a grad position. I have lived both by myself and in share houses before so would like to think I know how it all works by now :) I work pretty long hours most days so would be out of everyone's hair for most parts during the week. But would like nothing more than to come home to some friendly faces and maybe even share a bottle of wine if everyone is around. I'm reliable and easy going, would like to think I'm easy to get along with :) not a fan of drama or bad vibes. Just looking for some cool people to live with that like to have a laugh without being a party house. Ready to move anytime just need a couple of weeks notice to pack and move around working hours.
