Susannah

Looking in: Weetangera, Watson, Macquarie, Lyneham, Kaleen, Harrison, Giralang, Franklin, Aranda

Hi there, I’m a 35 year old high school teacher with a 4 year old border collie. I live fairly quietly, love to walk, bike ride, do yoga, travel, eat simply & healthily and, when I have my own place, I love to potter in the garden. I keep my space clean and pick up after myself. My dog, Banjo, is well trained and exercised every day. I’m very good at keeping yards clean with a regular poo patrol and would really value living with/among folk who are relaxed with dogs & willing to give him the same boundaries that I do. Banjo has always been allowed to spend time inside with me and sleeps inside at night. He is left outside while I’m at work. If we sound like okay housemates to you, let me know and I’d love to pop by! Many thanks, Suzi

Looking in: Watson, Turner, Kingston, Downer, Braddon

Hi there, I’m a creative, self employed woman who is looking for a stable house for myself and my nearly 12 yr old poodle cross dog. I am friendly, reliable and considerate and looking for a homey house, or to team up with one other person. My beloved doggy is in the latter years of his life, so looking for a dog friendly stable house for a year, whilst saving up to buy a property. I like film, good tv (and some trash TV), don’t drink or smoke. I am fairly quiet and respectful and like to live with people I can chat and laugh with.

Mari Rowlands

Looking in: Woden, Russell, Phillip, Macquarie, Lyneham, Hughes, Garran, Downer, Dickson, Cook, Campbell, Watson, Narrabundah, Kingston, Forrest, Bruce, Belconnen

I'm currently studying IR at ANU and am looking into moving off-campus into a two bedroom flat at the start of next year. I work at McDonald's Manuka (not glamorous, but it pays rent) and between that and studying I love to just chill out and read or watch Netflix. I'm fairly quiet and not the most social person, so the chances of me ever having more than one person over at a time is slim to none, but I love a good yarn and watching TV or playing board games (though I'm not very good). I'm very tidy and will always keep up my end of the cleaning deal. My budget is $200 a week (but less would be even better). Feel free to shoot me a message or text if you'd like to get to know me more before making the plunge! I'd prefer living with a friend anyway so we should get to know each other! :)

I'm a public servant looking for short term accommodation anyehere close to a direct bus to the city. I'm hoping to find somewhere warm for the winter months and ideally, a place I can keep my cat, George with me. He's big ol panther but he's very cool. On the weekends i do my best to get our of the house to catch up on some studies, find a quite space to read and check out Canberra's music and art scene. I'm a non-smoker and would like to share with someone who doesn't smoke. This is very important to me. Some good stuff: I'm not a party person and tend to keep quiet and friendly around the home. I'm a second-hand book store and tea-chat kind of person. I also like walks, baking cakes and overgrown gardens. I'm tidy and will keep the house fresh and clean. My household pet peeves are food and dirty dishes left in sinks overnight and grimy, dirty or dusty floors. I like my pad dust, ( human and pet) hair and crawlie free. I am a Queensland ring-in so this chilly autumn weather has been a surprise! I will happily talk to you about heating expectations etc before we get to winter. Cheers, Rose

I'm friendly, clean, neat, sociable and respectful of the privacy of others. I've lived in flat/house shares for a few years now and I am now a fully "trained" housemate. I'm working part-time as a therapist and relatively new to Canberra. I have an assistance dog who is ridiculously well behaved. At times, I work from home auditing cases. Please note: I'm only looking to rent as a co-tenant or as a head tenant. I'd be willing to discuss all agreements upfront, even an occupancy agreement with the proviso that I be given a 4 to 6 weeks notice period. Hey guys, the rental market is brutal out there! I'd love to hear from you. In my spare time, I paint and have an active social life on weekends. I tend to go for hikes with my dog, visit friends and I am involved in many side projects that keep me busy. I tend to watch too much TV and Netflix too. I'm looking for a long term stay.

A fun and easy-going person who's always up for a chat but at the same time respectful enough to give everyone their own space. I believe 'mutual respect' is the most important element for peaceful co-resistance and I always take extra care in making sure that my actions don't hurt/bother the people I live/stay with. And besides all that, I also believe that a little fun hurts nobody! :)

I'm doing Honours in visual art ANU. When I’m not studying, I love to head up to Mt Ainslie or out to the Cotter, cook dinner for friends, or spend time with a book. I'm looking for a place to call home for this year and possibly the first half of next. Somewhere that's a great environment to be in, not just a room to bunk in. I’d love to share dinner or a glass of wine when our schedules permit, but also like my own space when studying. I hope I’d be welcome to have friends over too! Shoot me a message if you think I'd be a good fit for your place. Looking forward to hearing from you!

I work full time for the government, I keep fit and spend a lot of time out of the house. I have a 6 month old dog who is well-behaved and spends most of her time outside. I have heaps of pot plants but not very much stuff. If I'm not out of the house I love a chat and a wine, but also a big fan of spending time alone reading or watching TV.
