i’m melbourne born and raised, but was planning to move to canada in april. due to covid i moved to footscray instead (insert joke here about the amount of ice in canada/footscray), and have been here for six months. while footscray is cool and i live with the most excellent human and dog, i’m keen to get back to the north while things are opening up, as it’s my home and all my mates are there. i still intend to move to canada when the borders are open, which i’m hoping will be mid next year, so i’m not looking for long term. i take pride in my space, and am super near and clean. i’m incredibly respectful of other people, their space and needs. i love to socialise, but also love to spend time alone. i work for the government as a project manager, so have a secure income, but am currently working from home. so will be around a lot during work hours, but take any opportunity i can to get out for a walk. i’m a staunch lefty, am passionate about equality, and am very open minded. i’m vegan, but not preachy, and am conscious of my footprint. i love music and books and film and shows! oh and i lift weights, but am not a meat head, yet. i get very excited about things i’m into. i really love people, and love conversation. i’d like to find a clean and tidy house with likeminded legends who i can have a great conversation with, who also respect my space. my move in date can be flexible!

i have a cat, 'monkey cat' she is sweet but timid, well behaved, house trained and very soft and has lived with other animals before, once she gets to know you, she'll come up for pats. I'm currently working as a cleaner and have a back ground in early childhood (caring and educating young children) am looking to return to the industry after moving to new home. I'm pretty chill and quiet, enjoy both socialising and time to myself, enjoy burning incense and essential oils. i always do plenty of house and garden chores (using natural products only) and enjoy netflix in the evenings :) i love listening to music but mostly just put the radio on (lots of PBS and SBS chill at the moment) I'm a good listener and love learning new things. being in lockdown has certainly changed things, it can feel very vague trying to remember the before times, when i used to go out and about around melb town. i enjoy reading and crafting but have just downsized a lot of both ( 3 book shelves down to 1 and a spare room of crafting/sewing down to one large table ) have both a sewing machine and over locker which you're welcome to borrow. i had hundreds of potted plants but have given most away so that i have a manageable amount to move. i do a lot of walking and ride my bike mostly for shopping, love the occasional bath and not into watching tv (have a low tolerance for advertising), i enjoy random conversations, camping and festivals, the simple pleasures in life and seeing the positive side of things. i love lots of colours, patterns, textures and making a house a home :)

I am a ballet dancer who typically works 5 days a week. I'm tidy, clean and quiet but also friendly and sociable. I like to cook, relax in the local parks, watch Netflix and hang with friends. I have experience renting and I am seeking a place to live with one other male. I am also gay and vegan (but doesn’t mind living with non-veg). I’m fairly minimal with my possessions, I do have a vitamix and cold-press juicer which i don’t mind sharing.

Looking to move from Brunswick to something closer to Northcote High Street because I have lived in the area over 4 years and I miss its vibe i.e Wesley Anne, Welcome to Thornbury and Preston Market etc. I work full time as a project manager in a large corporate in the city. Post COVID I have been W.F.H 9-5 since March. I am usually quite busy during the week but I like to have a drink on the weekend, cook some delicious food and share with housemates ( current housemates think I am in the wrong industry and should open up a restaurant ). I have a decent photography gear so pre COVID I use to shoot portraits and events as a side hustle. As I wrote above I have lived in the neighborhood for the last 4 years and feel like Darebin is where my tribe is. Ideally looking for a home with mature people who are creative, reliable and fun to be around.

Looking for a medium sized room (preferably furnished) in a quiet and cozy home.I try to keep fit so a room with enough space to lay my mat out will be perfect. Walking distance to public transport and supermarkets will be appreciated. I’m currently studying commercial cookery and working in a small catering company so I would be more than happy to cook together every now then and I’m always up for a friendly chat.

Hi guys :) I’m Louise (late 30’s, str) friendly, non-smoker, LGBTQ+ friendly, & left leaning. I’ve lived in sharehouses for many years & probably have reached veteran status by now lol so I know the deal & can contribute towards a harmonious home. I always pay rent/bills on time, clean, am mindful of others space/belongings, like open communication & am respectful. Also I'm flexible with the move date! I’m pretty quiet, my party-house days are behind me & prefer a home that’s a space to relax & recharge. Love a good nature hike & can’t wait to get back on the trails. I’m a true-crime junkie, enjoy reading, usually have a few podcasts on the go & love a Netflix binge as much as the next person. Always up for a chat with the flatties & the occasional bevie but tend to do my own thing. I’m a social introvert (I swear that's a thing lol), I like hanging with people but equally need downtime in my room. I do like a clean/tidy house & always contribute towards chores. No pile of dirty dishes from this gal! But having said that I’m not pedantic about it & get that life happens. Also I adore animals. Usually I work in customer service but unfortunately lost my job due to covid. I am however receiving JobSeeker & thankfully have ample savings (happy to provide bank records to the agent). I’m hustling hard for work atm so I’m optimistic something will come along. To be honest I’ve outgrown my current sharehouse which is quite small & outdated. Lockdown has really highlighted that I need somewhere more spacious, plus a few mod cons would be wonderful (I'm not sure I can take another heatwave without aircon). So I'm putting the feelers out. I have flexibility with the move date & want something more long term, but my main priority is finding the right fit. I hope to live with others who are after the same household vibe & are non-smokers. I guess I’m looking for a nice dynamic where we genuinely get along & work together to sort out any issues. Please let me know if you have any questions. I’m happy to arrange a facetime/zoom meet but would prefer an in person visit. Cheers! Louise.

Hi friends! I'm a psychology student in the final year of my science degree at uni melb and work casually for a bank (wfh at the moment). I'm looking to move somewhere a tad closer to the cbd once I graduate. I'm an easy going and open minded person who is respectful and considerate of everyone and their space. I enjoy socialising and am always down for a shared meal, a glass of wine and a chat, but also value my own time as well. Love listening to music, reading, cooking, watching movies and exploring new places :) Ideally looking for a more long-term place with a homey vibe and friendly, like minded people. If you have pets even better!

Hi, I'm looking for a fully self-contained granny flat or bungalow. The building needs to be clean, in excellent condition and a quiet location. This would suit me well as I'm a very clean, responsible and quiet tenant. I'm looking for a peaceful home as am working to complete a book project. I'm naturally friendly, a good communicator and have lived in a variety of solo and shared accommodations. My intention is to find a place by early November, but am open to a good opportunity earlier too. Currently looking around the max. price range of $240, and favouring the north-east to be close to family. Please contact me if you have a space like this and are considering renting it out. I'd love to hear from you. Thanks, Justin.

Hi my name is Meg I am working full time and about to go back to uni/continue full time work. I love keeping active and being outdoors with my little pup Chester.

Looking for a clean space with a bit of a yard or large balcony. Happy to send through photos of the little guy or answer any additional questions.
