Looking in: Brighton, Northcote, Fitzroy North, Fitzroy, Brunswick East, Brunswick, South Yarra, Saint Kilda East, Saint Kilda, Prahran, Malvern, Kooyong, Hawthorn East, Elwood, Caulfield South, Caulfield North, Burwood, Box Hill South, Box Hill, Ashwood

Hi there! :) My name is Friederike and I'm a 25-year old literature student from Germany, moving to Melbourne to study Creative Writing at Deakin University! :) I love travelling and getting to know other countries: I've lived and worked as a barista in Auckland, New Zealand for a year after finishing school and also did a work internship in Reykjavík, Iceland last year. Apart from that, I travel and explore the world around me as much as I possibly can! My passions include yoga, all things creative, great coffee, books, vegetarian cooking and baking, listening to and making music (mostly metal and (punk) rock but I'm open-minded!), socialising in general as well as enjoying fresh air and the ocean. :) Concerning living with me, I love a good mix between socialising as flatmates and privacy. I'm quite ambitious about my studies and so I need my daily alone-and-quiet time - but at the same time, I enjoy cooking together/simultaneously and spending time together as flatmates! It's the cosiest thing ever, right? I also like being out and about during my free time and I'm not a "couch potato". When it comes to tidying and cleaning, a clean kitchen and bathroom are an absolute must for me. ;) If you can imagine living with me, drop me a message! I'm looking forward to getting to know you. :) ... oh and one last note: my preferred length of stay is in fact roughly 5 months but this website doesn't offer this option. :D

Hi y’all! I’m looking for a privit room. New to Melbourne, but I have lived in the Uk, Ireland, Germany for the last 4 years. So I have lived with people from various nationalities that means I’m fully understanding living with mates for sure :) Just exploring and traveling at the moment but my real Melbourne new life will have to start from next week. That’s why I’m looking for a room. I can describe myself tidy, neat, easygoing and open minded person. Can enjoy have a chat with anyone, quite like to have some dinner and drink or two with flatmates. But I’m also very respectful person. Came here for a year with working holiday visa. I can move in straight away as soon as you allowed me to move in. Please just feel free to message me. I’ll have enough time to have an inspection this week. Thanks.

Looking in: Princes Hill, Carlton North, Northcote, Fitzroy, Collingwood, Brunswick

I'll be moving to Melbourne first week of February to study Masters at RMIT Brunswick. I'm originally from Manila, Philippines but I've lived in London, France, and San Francisco. I spent a couple of months per year in Australia (particularly Brisbane) in the past 2 years. I've also travelled to different countries in between. I love travelling, exploring new places, going on an adventure, being outdoors, art, photography, local cafes and bars, working out, going to festivals, and good food and drinks (wine and gin are my go to). I'm easy going and likes to have a good laugh. I'm also very social but enjoy my own space and respect others'. I consider myself as clean and hygienic, and reliable when it comes to due payments.

Studying double major in Environments at MelbUni, I tend to spend long hours at library. So when I am home, I like to cook or read a bit. Not a party fan nowadays due to my schedule. Also work part time as barista in a coffee shop. Plus I love making people laugh so I am willing to have a healthy social communication with my roommates. Also I like to have a clean house, so I am up to help in household duties.

Adele

Looking in: Thornbury, North Melbourne, Fitzroy, Collingwood, Carlton, Preston, Northcote, Fitzroy North, Clifton Hill, Carlton North, Brunswick

I returned to Melbourne a few months ago after living overseas for many years. I’m loving being back and reconnecting with old friends and all the good things Melbourne has to offer. My work is music-related; I’m a sound engineer and concert manager. I’ve picked up some great work since returning, and this year is looking good - my diary is certainly filling up. Accommodation-wise I’ve been doing a mix of house sitting and staying with friends for the last few months. I’m now looking for somewhere for the short term, possibly longer - it's all open to discussion - and preferably furnished. I know what it takes to share a home in terms of good communication and keeping things hassle-free, and I'd like to live somewhere where things are kept generally clean and tidy (as an ex-home helper I'm a dab hand with a dustpan and brush) and the place ticks along nicely. I'm probably more suited to living with over-30s. I can be quiet at times but am by no means antisocial. I enjoy reading, music, science and nature and derive ridiculous amounts of pleasure from cryptic crosswords. Don't let that put you off, though! I like to have a natter and a laugh and share occasional meals when the opportunity arises, whilst also respecting people's need for a bit of quiet time and personal space. I do yoga, walk a lot and am generally active, enjoy cooking and eat pretty well. I’m a non-smoker and not much of a drinker, but certainly don't mind if you're partial to a tipple. Do get in touch - I'd love to hear from you.

Hey! I've recently moved down from Brisbane to work full-time as a Web Developer at a creative agency in Collingwood specialising in music, events & entertainment. I'm a pretty relaxed person and tend to keep to myself and my work, but am always keen to hangout and socialise with new people especially if it means I get to explore this new city. I’ve stayed in a few share houses before so i’m house trained and I tend to just clean up after myself as I go also always happy to pitch in on house duties.

Cary & Paige

Looking in: Northcote, Fitzroy, Collingwood, Carlton, Brunswick

My girlfriend, Paige Vreede (27) and I (29) are looking for a place to call home in Melbourne. We are both from Los Angeles and cannot wait to make our way to Australia. This will be my first time to Australia, Paige has lived there previously in Brisbane. Ideally, we would like a place in Brunswick, Fitzroy, Collingwood, or Carlton, but aren't too fussy. Our budget is about $350/pw but we are flexible if it's the right fit. I will be on a working-holiday visa, while Paige is on a student visa studying communications at Monash University. I work in telecommunications and Paige is a freelance music journalist. Despite L.A. being known as a place chockfull of dickheads, I promise we aren't about that life. We are both active in the music industry and would love to find a flatmate(s) who enjoys a cold brew before going to a live show. We're clean and respectful and won't ever put you in the "omg why did I choose to live with a couple" awkward situation. We'll be landing in OZ on the 25th of January and would ideally like to have a place by Feb. 1st. We’re also taking requests for any American goodies you'd like us to take back (it's not a bribe, we're just very passionate about others discovering the goodness of ranch dressing). Cheers!

FLEXIBLE MOVE DATE. Quiet but sociable, intelligent, arty, stylish, friendly, romantic, gay. Able to move any time if you are offering ideal quiet room. I work full-time in education and love walking to work in Parkville as often as possible. Looking for a LARGE ROOM (I have many books and tasteful possessions) in a peaceful, warm, aesthetically-pleasing abode. Preferably aircon in house. Very easygoing, mature, financially sound and conscientious. Bit of a health maven and very tidy in the kitchen/bathroom/shared areas. Terrific sense of humour. Interested in natural history, botanical art (hobby), literature, gorgeous food, green adventures, film festivals and classical and world music. Very gentle, considerate and sweet. I have happily resided in a beautiful sharehouse in Moonee Ponds (replete with a smooth-running cleaning roster) for the past ten years. Sadly have to move for landlord's revamp of the property. I prefer text to call (or check if good time to call) but open to a call before 10pm if you are offering something ideal and not on a busy street

Hi, LOOKING FOR A HOME ...I AM VERY EASY TO LIVE WITH AND HAVE A GOOD SENSE OF HUMOUR... I am looking for a nice relaxed place to live, I would like my own bathroom, and I am very flexible with the location I am more interested in having a home rather than just a room. I am a writer/director working on the third draft of an Aussie Comedy hoping to shoot the film early 2019, I am in the process of raising the budget. I am a clean tidy considerate person who has a great sense of humour, I like a laugh a meal and a glass of wine, but I also value my space and give you yours, I also pay my bills and rent on time. At the moment I will be writing from home so a study or my own lounge, or even granny flat or studio would be helpful but not a deal breaker as I am looking for an office this year. I am studying film editing on final cut pro. I do have a 11 year old WELL TRAINED AND LOVED DOG AND A LITTLE BLACK CAT so it's important that they have a little space and are safe. I am flexible with moving dates bathroom and budget. Cheers Peita:)

Hey! I'm Renz and I'm a recent university graduate from Adelaide who is relocating to Melbourne for work mid-February (1 year contract, full time). My work is situated in Abbotsford and I won't be bringing my car with me so I'm hoping to find a place close to a train station along the Hurstbridge or South Morang line. When I'm not at work, I enjoy being active by going to the gym or the dance studio (I'm a hip hop dancer, just if you're curious). Or if I'm in a lazy mood, I enjoy cooking/baking, jamming on my guitar or chilling out with a good movie/tv series. I'm very tidy, easy-going, respectful of people and their personal space, and always down to make new friends!
