Grace

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

My name's Grace and I'm looking to move to Melbourne in the next few weeks. I'll be starting at RMIT (BA Photography) next year but until then, I don't mind living a bit further out of the city, while I work. I love music, poetry, writing, am studying online currently and am a pretty keen cook and am pretty introverted and quiet. That being said, I'd ideally love to live with people I can call friends and hang out with. I'm tidy, quiet, clean and all of that jazz- used to living with other people and taking care of a home. Also, I have a cat I can bring if you're up for it but that's optional. What I'm looking for: housemates I can call friends; people who are LGBT+ accepting (I'm gay), a house to call a home. That's all from me!

Hello, we are Florence and Nicolas, a couple from Paris, both fluent in English. We are coming in Melbourne to find a job. I am working as an event manager and Nicolas is a web developer. One of the most important thing to us is that our future place is clean, we are looking for a real home, and we both enjoy going out sometimes but also quiet. Nicolas is a swimmer and I like yoga. We both like to cook.

Adrienne

Looking in: Fitzroy North, Abbotsford, Carlton, Carlton North, Fitzroy, Thornbury, Northcote, Richmond, North Melbourne

My name is Adrienne, and I will be living in Melbourne from August 16-October 30. I am Canadian, and pursuing a master's degree in Environmental Governance in southwest Germany. As part of my master's, I am doing an internship with the City of Melbourne and a researcher at the CSIRO on the city's urban sustainability. I have lived in shared flats for six years and have plenty of experience being a respectful, clean, and good flatmate. I really enjoy communal living! I like to be able to share dinner or a drink with my flatmates in the evenings after a day of work. I will be working roughly a 9-5 schedule, but it will be my first time in Melbourne (or anywhere in Australia, for that matter!) so I'd like to spend my evenings and weekends exploring as a tourist too. It would be great to live with flatmates who know the city well enough to give me tips :) If that appeals to you, I would love to chat with you more!

Hey all, I'm currently just looking for a Non smoking, temporary furnished place to live from 5th august, so a room Will be fine, but from October I'd be interested in team ups, I've got loads of household stuff in storage in Sydney that I'd like to ship down, fridge, dryer, dining table, kitchen stuff, tv, and a cat that's staying with my parents. (I need a couch, washing machine, if you've got those WINNING!) Just after a normal, casual, respectable share house, where everyone keeps the place clean without the need for rosters. I work full time in Northcote at a vet clinic. I like an occasional shared meal, sneaky trip to the local, but am happy making my own way too. Send me through any questions you have.:) its just me at this stage, the dogs in the photo are not mine.

Georgie: I'm studying at RMIT full-time doing mechanical engineering. I've just started working casually. I'm never really to sure how to describe myself. I like to think that I'm easy to get along with. Since I'm still new to melbourne (moved over from perth a month ago) I'm still trying to establish myself here. I'm pretty laid back, like to keep things relaxed although I like going out over the weekend. I have a 9 week old black lab named Apollo, I haven't been able to pick her up yet since I'm still trying to break my current lease.

I have a background in teaching English and working with deaf kids.Originally from India, I lived in Adelaide for 10 years and moved here 2 years ago. I will be going back to university next February to study public policy. I enjoy (not in any particular order) cats, board games, all animals, food, books, american tv, and bollywood. On a day I am home, you will find me reading or studying in mismatched pyjamas . I am clean, respectful, warm, LGBT friendly and lean to the left and would like to live with someone with a similar disposition. I bring with me a medium fridge, a spare heater and an exercise bike that am happy to share if there is space for it in a communal area. I don't have any pets but it's a bonus if you do :)

Looking for a new place to stay starting around mid-august. About me: French Canadian law student from McGill Uni. I’m responsible, organized, and respectful of people’s space. Having been a counsellor for a while, I don’t shy away from real talks and good connections. I also like to go out and dance from time to time. I have already settled into a social life here, so you don't have to take care of me, while I'm obviously interested in the house life! Oh, and I like biking and volleyball. Kind of household: I am quite sociable and I hope to spend some time with my new roommates. However, I kinda like/need my sleep and privacy, so I don’t think a busy or party house would be the best fit. Animals = sure. People around my age = yas. Quick witted spirits = damn right. Gardening extraordinaires = yes please. Hit me up!

Hiya! I'm currently living in a share house of 6 in Camberwell and I'm looking to downgrade back down to a smaller amount of humans and to Brunswick/Carlton area as that's where my family and friends live and where I grew up, as well as its closer to work as I do work in the CBD. I'm interested in staying long term and would love to find a place to call home. I have been looking at 2/3 bedroom houses around Brunswick area and would love to find someone/s to join me! I'm a bartender currently working 3 jobs in the live music industry. I don't currently study, so I work mostly every day, usually night time so I'm around for the morning/arvo just chilling watching tv, reading or listening to music. I'm a huge music fan as I've previously studied music, play music and work in live entertainment venues, so I'm always up for a singalong and a debate about the latest tunes going around. Huge food lover, however not the best cook, but pasta is my specialty so don't underestimate me. I'm quite clean and love cleaning, which is a weird but handy quirk. It's quite therapeutic. I also don't mind a few cheeky drinks and am LGBT/Vegan friendly. So please, hit me up if you feel like joining me in my quest to conquer the north

Hello potential housemates, I am a very relaxed and easy going person, who is clean and tidy. After many years in hospitality I am well drilled in cleaning up as I go. Currently working at Aust Post. I have it set up so rent and bills are always paid on time. I enjoy people's company and also enjoy chilling out doing my own thing to. I keep my life interesting doing many different things eg. Improv acting, improv dancing, gym, yoga, just learn't how to scuba dive this year. Once I am settled into a new place I will reassess my bucket list! I have a big emphasis on eating healthily, I look after myself well and enjoy cooking. (Saying that, still enjoy beer, nice wine and night out.) I follow the Bombers in AFL, you can decide if that is good or bad! Looking to live with similarly relaxed, open, easy going people. I can communicate and connect with a broad range of people, ages, female or male. One of my philosophy's in life is to find and surround myself with good, genuine people, this I am pretty successful at. Look forward to hearing from you. Thanks Ben

Hi my name is Sara, 27 and have recently moved from Brisbane and currently staying with a family friend until i can find a place of my own. I am looking to rent out an unfurnished room as i have my own belongings, in the areas i have listed and nearby. i believe North of Melbourne if i am not mistaken. About me: I work full time Mon-Fri in North Melbourne for a tax accounting firm, I go to gym most nights straight after work. I am very easy going, love to have a chat but also respect everyones privacy as i expect in return :). I'm not being cliche when i say i am a clean and tidy person and clean up after myself as I even like to clean up midst cooking etc (saves me doing it later). I like to have an occasional wine on some weekends and yes unfortunately I am a smoker but very respectful around others in regards to this and coming from Brisbane where smoking is pretty much taboo, you will not have an issue regarding my filthy habit :) Usually I'm quite busy so might not be home most times. I also have a partner who would come over some nights a week and I go to his so I would like that flexibility for him to stay a couple of nights. Looking preferably for an ensuite/own bathroom and can be flexible on my rent budget but still happy to have a bedroom for my budget depending on the place/location. If you like what you see please contact me on here as i check regularly or contact me on my mobile if you would like to discuss further. Look forward to hearing from you. Sara

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 (easy to laugh) trying to find room size (4.47m x3.05m include BIR) to fit my furnitures so you know i don't throw them in the bin 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 so i don't have to worry about my $1000 worth of stock in my car boot. (I fix computers onsite that means you get free computer service from me haha). Thanks

While looking for work and waiting to study Vet nursing I mostly spend my time volunteering at various animal organisations to further my knowledge. I guess I am a down to earth, open, honest person. I love to laugh, smile, read and sketch.. Im a bit of a geek when it comes to games, although I don't play as much anymore. Creating things is my hobby, whether its a planting something just to watch it grow or a painting some furniture, small or big I am always actively doing something. Im a bit of a klutz and air head at times *forgetful* but very adaptable. I love to see others happy and believe honesty is the best way when living with anyone. I like constructive criticism, to discuss, Im always looking to better myself. I love to get to know any person.. but I would like to live with people that I can maybe collaborate with. I have two cats, Elye and Monk, they are beautiful and pleasant to be around, the least pushy, most visibly appreciative cats.Funnily enough even people that don't usually like cats become fond of them, they're just so unique and random. Oh, I have a heap of furniture that is in storage. This huge double door fridge, a 1 door fridge probably suited for outdoors, an 8 seater beautiful oak table, bookshelves, a washing machine and a few other cute bits and bobs. It would be great to get them out but if they aren't needed its no biggie. As I mentioned, I love to get to know people but I also love it when people take the time to know me. Please feel free to send me a message with any questions :)

I'm doing a PhD in physics at the University of Melbourne. Australia is a very generous country so they decided to give me a salary/scholarship, which means that I can always pay my rent and bills in time, without having to rob any Woolies. In my spare time I like to do sports (running, swimming, yoga, soccer etc), annoy people around me playing my guitar, read books and travel as much as I can even if that just means going for on an adventure to the nearby pub. This is my 5th year living abroad in shared houses, before coming to Melbourne I lived in Ireland and Canada, so I am an international expert in the art of sharing a house. I value a lot the relationship with my housemates, so I'm looking for a bunch of people I can feel comfortable with, inside and outside the house, sharing dinners, drinks, lazy afternoons and any random moment life brings about. Luckily I also know how to respect others' privacy so I promise I won't follow you inside the bathroom. Living in a clean house is fundamental for me, so I hereby solemnly commit to put my efforts in keeping the place tidy and neat, and cleaning regularly.

I'm clean, and very quite. I do like to cook and generally prefer being outside exercising/hiking/walking etc. I do work pretty hard and I'm really not much of a party person. I prefer going out for dinner with friends or playing board games. I've just moved to Melbourne so I hope to explore a little. I've spent the last 6 years working overseas in international development so I've got some good stories. I do plan to travel a lot with work so I might be gone for up to 15 weeks of the year. I really would prefer to share with only one other person as I'm not super keen on sharing a bathroom between 3 or 4.
