Hey there :) We're two 20-something vegans who met recently while house-hunting, and we're seeking a like-minded human who's keen to team up and start a new long-term lease with us within the next couple of months. The dream home we have in mind is a 3-bedroom house somewhere in the inner-north, with a decent-sized kitchen and a garden big enough to grow veggies in (and for our other team-mate, a scruffy dog/couch potato called Maddigan, to laze around in). Our budget is $190/week each, and we'd be furnishing pretty much from scratch apart from a heap of indoor plants, a washing machine, books, and a coffee machine... because priorities ;) So bonus points if you come with a fridge, or are generally keen to help find/furnish/decorate a new place and make it really feel like home! Pop us a message if you're interested -- we'd love to catch up for a coffee and chat further :)

Sonja

Looking in: Thornbury, Northcote, Fitzroy North, Fairfield

Hi, my name is Sonja (36) and I'm looking for a sweet abode that is light-filled, cosy and the perfect place to relax. I am keen to either move into an established home or I am also interested in setting up a lovely home with someone if it worked out. I love to get out and explore the city and the world, having travelled and lived overseas in the past. I have been in Melbourne for over four years and I am excited to move into a new house with a great person/people. I am a very respectful person and I enjoy a relaxed home environment where everyone feels completely at home, and where openness and good communication is essential. My wellbeing is important to me and I like to get out on my bike as well as taking up various forms of mindful exercise. I am conscious of my impact on the world and like to learn about ways that I can be more sustainable in my everyday life. I don't watch TV, however I do enjoy the odd TV series and movie. I head out to see live music when I can and sing in a local choir. I work in the Event/Project management space. I am looking for my new home in the suburbs of Westgarth, Fairfield, Northcote and surrounding areas. I would love a home that is inspiring and light-filled, has a sunny garden and enough living space for everyone to feel comfortable. I follow a plant-based diet so I am ideally after a vegan/vegetarian home. I look forward to meeting my potential new flatmate/s so please get in touch if you feel that we have similar ideas on the type of living environment you are seeking. Enjoy your day and thanks for reading my post! Sonja

Im Canadian and just arrived for a working holiday visa. I am an easy going, nice dude. I keep it very mellow but can also have a lot of fun. I am clean. Work early during the week and will probably go out on weekends after a few drinks. I skateboard and make beats (on my headphones) so keeping to myself is not an issue. If we get along I am not shy but will give you your space.

Looking in: Thornbury, Preston, Northcote, Fitzroy, Fairfield, Clifton Hill, Brunswick East, Brunswick

Hi, I'm Lara! My current housemate Anna and I are looking to move out of our established houseshare and find a new place to live and some like-minded people to share it with! A bit about us, we enjoy cooking meals together (vego is the go), chats over wine, music and crafts!! lol. We like to have a few drinks and go to gigs on the weekend and occasionally after work/uni. Though probably not really a party house and appreciate restraint during the week. We are both full-time students and workers so we do enjoy our solitude as well and respect each other's privacy. Basically, we're just looking for another person that is self-sufficient, housetrained and easygoing. We are friends rather than housemates and genuinely love the experience of living with supportive and fun housemates. If this sounds like a Household you'd enjoy, we'd love to hear from you. PS. it took me an HOUR to find a suitable pic of the two of us for this site and we still look insane so please forgive and trust that we are not xxx

Working full time as a software developer / team manager for a company in fitzroy with a very diverse team and looking to live closer to work and the city. I consider myself a quiet and considerate person, and I'm tolerant of other people and their differences. Since I work full time, I need housemates that are not loud late at night (past 12am) on weekdays. I enjoy media of all kinds, both good and bad, so happy to hang out occasionally after work and on weekends and watch a movie or something with a beer (or many if particularly bad). Ideal place would be walking distance to trams 11 96, or maybe 1,6.

27yr-old Florist, moving down to Melbourne from Brisbane in January. Super easy going, clean, friendly, good at adulting. Very independent and down to do my own thing, but equally keen to hang out, have a drink and a chat, or go out together from time to time. You’ll mostly find me out seeing bands, trying my hand at some new creative outlet, or rummaging through piles of second hand clothing/goods somewhere. Mostly just a good egg, looking for a place to call home!

Fenna

Looking in: Prahran, Yarraville, Thornbury, Southbank, Saint Kilda, Richmond, Preston, Northcote, Moonee Ponds, Ivanhoe, Heidelberg, Hawthorn, Fitzroy North, Fitzroy, Docklands, Collingwood, Coburg, Brunswick, Bellfield

Hey there, my name's Fenna, I'm a 24 year old globetrotter from Austria (with Dutch roots). After finishing my bachelor degrees in Cultural- and Social Anthropology and African Studies, I'm currently on a gap year trip. I've just arrived in Melbourne after spending two months in East Africa and am intending to stay for a couple of months. So right now I'm looking for a shared flat to call home within the range of about $150-200 and I’d love to move in as soon as possible after the holiday season. I’d describe myself as open-minded, easy going and tidy flatmate, with quite some experience in living with other people: I’ve lived in a shared student flat for 5 years in Vienna, 6 months with international students in the Netherlands as well as quite some time with couch surfers. So when it comes to living together in a respectful manner and making sure everyone’s able to feel at home – I know the drill. Otherwise I love to cook, am a passionate foodie and coffee drinker. I’m into photography and film, music, books, hiking, running, dancing and relaxed evenings in or out with friends. So don’t hesitate to contact me if you think we’d be a good match or if you want to know more about me. Looking forward to meeting up! Cheers, Fenna

Hi. I’m easy going, yet clean flexible and respectful of others needs (such as being quiet when you’re most likely asleep). I love to socialise with educated and emotionally intelligent people, but will give you space when you need it. I am intending to study social work next year, but already have a BA and post grad in Training and Development. I currently work as an in home aged and disability care support worker,(so it can fit in with my intended further study). I am LGTBI friendly, and somewhat of a (try hard) greeny, as I have a car for work needs, but want to ride my bike mostly to help save this earth. I’d prefer a bungalow, granny flat or double bedroom with an en-suite, or close-ish bathroom and toilet. Ideally, you might have a back garden I could chill in. I only smoke outside and only usually one or two a day, as I’m trying to give up. I have recently separated from my husband of 28 years, with whom I had twins with, who are now 23. I am of Anglo decent, born in Australia, and am open minded about sharing with people from other cultures (who speak English), and with sharing with people of any age, as long as they are good at keeping a place clean-ish. I am looking for a new bright positive life. I’m intending on going back to Uni (& hoping to get into Melb. Uni). I look forward to sharing with a friendly and respectful person, who can sometimes hopefully share in some cooking of good wholesome foods, who will also be good at cleaning up after themselves. I am agreeable to going back to being vegetarian to find the right person to live with, but am also fine with meat eaters. I am spiritual but not religious, open minded to what is commonly called a “new age” Christian and Buddhist based belief system. I am open minded to living with a respectful atheist/ agnostic as I was one for many years. I am quite a greeny when it comes to cleaning products, (due to new research out), and I choose organic foods wherever possible. I strictly avoid pesticides like fly spray and herbicides like weed killer, as they are neuro-toxins that paralyse the nerves of all living things - including humans. They are suspected to cause cancer and be linked to health conditions such as cancer, autism, ADHD and Parkinson’s disease. I have an understanding of health and whole foods, as have helped my ex recover from cancer recently and I also work in the care sector. I would love to live with a like minded soul who is educated or working towards being so. What do I do for fun? I still love seeing bands and enjoying dining out on good food and the occasional beverage. I like gardening, reading, discussing anything and everything. I love to travel, love to learn more about others perspectives, love to share and support others in life’s ups and downs, love bushwalking, horse riding, camping, (although “glamping” appeals more lately). I enjoy going to gym and walking or jogging in the park, or on a beach, going to movies, watching Netflix or Foxtel, YouTube and social media. Unlimited Wifi would be excellent with this house/flat share or bungalow for that reason. I’d prefer a furnished room, but unfurnished would be ok, for the right location. Feel free to call or text me for a quick response if you’re interested in sharing with me. Kind Regards Kerry

Hello! I’m looking for a new place to call home! I’ve recently relocated to Melbourne from the Sunshine Coast. I’ve lived in many share houses and would really love the next place to feel like a bit of a calm sanctuary with conscious housemates. A bit about me - I have been teaching yoga for the last two years / working in hospitality. I read a lot and like to think of myself as very open minded. I love live music and summer festivals but not much of a drinker. You would rarely find me in front of a TV but I do love connecting over good conversation with the people I live with. I am super tidy and enjoy living in a clean (must be smoke free) environment. It’s also worth mentioning that I am an early riser/ will be working early, so living with someone that doesn’t mind a bit of movement around the house early is preferred. If you have a place and feel like we would connect, then let me know! 😊

Ian is 27, from Scotland and has been in Australia since February 2017. He is a roof tiler, works full time and has a job lined up for when we arrive! Gabby is 29, has just graduated nursing and has accepted a position at a hospital to start in early February next year. Originally from Melbourne but has been living on the Sunshine Coast since March 2017 for a little break and to study. We also have a little cat called Pippa, who is very friendly, cuddly and quiet. She will probably head butt you for pats, but other then that, she's pretty chill. (She will for sure stalk you if you're eating ham though) She’s already in Melbs with family at the moment but I really would like to get her back ASAP if it suits the house we move into. We are both very easy to live with, very tidy and aware that we are sharing a space with other people and to be respectful of that. We also get down with wine and socialising but just not every weekend anymore ... you know .. saving and that. We are moving between the 6th-12th of January. PS. I tried to upload a photo of the two of us but it cropped me out so you have a lovely close up of Ian and it won't let me change it lol. Apparently, it likes him more than me.
