Talea & Sarah

Looking in: Kensington, Melbourne, Fitzroy, Northcote, South Melbourne, Carlton, Southbank, Thornbury, Saint Kilda, Richmond, Brunswick

Hello potential housemates/house owners. Sarah and I (Talea) are moving to Melbourne next year as we are both starting jobs with the same company. We both studied at university in Brisbane and are excited to make the move down. We do not know each other very well as we have just teamed up to move together. We are hoping to find someone else to move into a house/apartment with us in Melbourne. Being near a train station is a must, we will be working in Docklands not far from Southern Cross Station so easy access to that is a priority. Also, we would prefer to have a non-smoker. We would both like to get a place that is less than $300 per week each, including all bills (e.g. internet, power, etc.) Other than that, read a bit about us below. My name is Talea, I am 20 and about to finish my degree is Business. I have spent the last few years living in house sharing accommodations so living with new and different people is not new to me. I really like sports and I am an avid rugby fan. Upon moving to Melbourne, I am hoping to get a cat so I that you would be okay with having one around the place. I am pretty easy going and like to have a laugh watching TV and movies. I also like getting out and about, especially playing sports and I hope to explore Melbourne a lot more when I get there. Also, I have a boyfriend of 3 year who unfortunately can't make the move with me but will be visiting often so you will get to meet him too. I enjoy spending time with others but I like to have space and alone time too so I won't be in your face. I hope to hear from you. I’m Sarah, I’m 23 and starting a job like Talea. For hobbies I like doing crafty things like knitting, sometimes arty things, I also like to read and bake. I’d say travel is my favourite but it’s not something I can do all the time, but I can still try new things here. I want to go explore Melbourne, and see what it has to offer, maybe do some hiking and stuff like that. For exercise I need a friend or to do social sports because I’m so bad at self-motivating. So, I’ll probably join some team or course. My current dream is to grow some plants without killing them, probably succulents because I’m a realist. I like to be friends with my housemates and I’m still really good friends with a few past housemates, but I’m an introvert at heart so you don’t have to worry about me suffocating you with always wanting to hang out. I’ve lived in different share house situations for about 5 years now, I know how to keep a place clean and split duties. So I’d like someone who is keen to hangout and have a chat at times, washes their dishes and won’t shame me for eating raw cookie dough.

Hey guys, Naj here! I'm a 31yo who has called Brisbane my home for the last 14 years, and I have finally made it down to the cooler city, for work and to be closer to my mum and sis, who moved here a few years back! So I start working for the Victorian Government next week, and am currently staying at my mums until I find the perfect sharehouse home. I've been living in sharehouses in my beautiful West End in Brisbane for the last 7-8 years so I am very house trained. I am very clean, and consider hygiene, doing your chores and washing up after yourselves to be a number one rule of being a cool housemate. I love to chat and socialise with my housemates but I also like my own time and respect your need for some down and alone time too. I love to have good beer and wine and indulge in cooking adventures. I love to share as well and believe the more communal the house is, the more it is a home. As far as what I'm into; I love film, hiking, camping, my yoga practice and riding my bikes. Not in lycra. Just to commute and to be environmentally conscious. I'm also interested in social justice causes and trying to make our world a kinder and sustainable place to live in. (I used to have dreadlocks and did a bit of travel in my mid 20's - totally not a cliché) I also love going to gigs, having a boogie, going to festivals and plays. The abundance of all things art and creative is another reason why Melbourne has drawn me in. I also love dogs and prefer playing records to having the tv on. (and long walks on the beach. heh) I've visited this town many times over the years and I have a few friends scattered around. But I'm looking forward to joining a family sharehouse home where I can put some roots down for awhile and explore this city with local knowledge and insights and characters. That's me in a blurb form, but I would love to meet you all face to face and have a chat in person and see if we fit, and get along, and share the same values. Looking forward to hearing from you!

I'm currently studying at full-time at La Trobe and working at Woolies in Toorak so I'm out and about almost all of the time. I love books, jazz, dogs and paying my bills on time. I'm a pretty passionate cleaner but I don't expect that from others, best of both worlds! Currently looking for a place in the Inner North, so if that's you than give me a bell!

I work in Financial Services in the CBD. I've traveled extensively and continue to travel. I've lived in the UK and have traveled through Europe and Middle East. I also try to see different parts of Australia. I enjoy meeting people, experiencing different cultures and open to new experiences. I travel back to NZ regularly to catch up with family and friends. I'm active, go to the gym most days, I like to think I'm independent, self-sufficient but am happy to ask for directions if I need. I'm looking for short-term accommodation starting end of Oct/Dec potentially longer if it suits flat mate and myself. In addition, I would prefer to stay with 1 person. I have furniture in storage, if possible I'll require a queen bed, drawers, double wardrobe and off-street parking. If I need to get furniture out I can. I'm clean and tidy as well as respective people space and privacy. I'm active so go to the gym most days. Happy to discuss further with potential flatmate.

Hey legends. Here's me at 34, trying to settle down, appreciate the small things, ya know? Don't get me wrong, I still enjoy a drink and a sick party on the weekends but I'm more likely to find salvation in the pages of a book, the midst of a conversation or a meal on the stove than at the bottom of a bottle on a Tuesday night. I work 4 days a week as a web developer but I still harbour secret thoughts that the book I wrote last year will spark into a career as a journalist - that's what my fifth day is for - writing.

I consider myself to be very respectful of others and my housemates, chill, sociable, and well house trained. I'm also fully capable of paying rent on time.

Generally looking to live with others who are social and like to chill together in the evenings occasionally. I can move in any time! I'm preferably looking for something longterm, but am open to subletting if it's for 3+ months. Also would prefer the room to be furnished. No share rooms please!

Hello, My name is Jess. I am currently working full time in NSW and am looking to relocate to Melbourne early next year (ideally moving in January or February). I am interested in renting a room but also to team up with anyone else looking to create a share house! Even though I am not moving until January I am more than happy to pay rent a little earlier for a suitable place...also more than happy to Skype chat with anyone already in Melbourne. I am a English Literature and Geography high school teacher. This year I took a job teaching full time in order to gain experience and save money, but am now looking to move to somewhere less regional! In 2018 I plan to do my honors in creative writing/literature in 2018 but I will also be working as a substitute teacher / tutor where possible. I also run my own online business where I sell handmade clothes/accessories (this supported me through my entire undergrad degree) so hopefully if I can find a place with enough room for a sewing desk too! I have lived in a number of share houses before. I prefer a house that more feels like a communal home as opposed to a number of rented out rooms. I am quite and often keep to myself when working or writing but I love cooking communal dinners and chats with housemates. I am a tidy person (but not a neat freak), so I prefer to live with people who have lived in share houses before and know how to respect shared spaces. I have company over now and then but I am not a very extroverted of social person in my home. I don't mind if pets live in the house (because who doesn't love cute animals!). I live a fairly active/healthy lifestyle and love plants/succulent gardens. I also do a fair amount of drawing/art and am also very into film. Happy to live a little further out of the city if that means a more peaceful/larger place but also open to most locations :) If you would like to get in contact about a room or a team up for a place feel free to message! Jess.
