We are a young couple from Newcastle and we are moving to Canberra for work at very short notice. We urgently require short-term accommodation until we can get settled in and find our own place. We would like to move in preferably no later than the beginning of June. Our preferred length of stay is around 2-3 months but we can be flexible with this. Elliott (22 y.o.) - Public servant and Clark Kent look-alike; currently working as a research assistant and finishing the last semester of a commerce degree via distance. Michelle (27 y.o.) - Recently completed a B.A. in politics and international relations; moving to Canberra to work and study at ANU. • We are mature, respectful, and clean up after ourselves. • We're sociable and easy to get along with, but we also appreciate having our own space. • We'll be working full-time hours Monday-Friday and studying during nights/weekends, so we're looking for housemates who are quiet and considerate, especially during the evening. (We don't mind sharing with other students as long as it's not a noisy 'party house' type environment). • We're not adverse to hanging out occasionally — it would be nice to know some locals who can show us around the city and recommend things to see/do in Canberra :) • Hoping to find a room that's already furnished because we'll need time to acquire our own furniture. A queen bed would be ideal because all of our sheets, quilts etc. are queen size (and Elliott is probably too tall to sleep on anything smaller). • We'll need parking space (Elliott has a car and I plan to bring mine down from Newcastle in the near future, too). • I'll be relying on public transport for at least a few weeks, so accommodation located reasonably close to public transport is a must. • We would prefer to have our own bathroom/ensuite (if possible) but we're not in a position to be too fussy. • Decent internet/Wi-Fi and heating/cooling is essential.
I'm a uni student and a barman so I'm seldom home. I play rugby and if I'm not working or studying I'm usually training. when I am home and not doing anything I usually read or watch Netflix. I'm a pre good cook and am happy to get myself a mini fridge for my pre cooking. I come with my kitchen knives and pans. I've a less than favorable home life and just need a roof, a bed, somewhere to wash, somewhere to cook, and somewhere to eat. I almost never party, and when I do see my friends it's usually to play board games or dungeons and dragons.
Hello, I am pretty down to earth. I run my own business which keeps me pretty busy but otherwise i like all sports and staying fit. I have a huge stack of board games if you wanna get around games nights. I have the best looking border collie you have seen. His name is Alf and he comes to work with me everyday (i am a builder). He is very chilled, sleeps outside in a pimp dog house but whole endeavour in life is fetch. If your place does't allow dogs then he is able to stay at my folks. Anyway send me a msg if you'd like to have a chat. Thanks
Creative professional and coach recently moved to Canberra and looking for a share house with character (people and house). Working full time on a government contract and studying design in my spare time. Lots of experience living in share houses and contributing to a positive, respectful and attractive space. Enjoy a glass of wine and chat after work or on weekends. Like to cook and share meals when the timing works. A large room with a nice outlook would suit me best to fit a queen sized bed, dresser and desk, or a small room and access to study/studio space. I have a beautiful 8 seater dining table and chairs if there is room, plus a coffee machine and some great kitchenware. Will consider a semi-rural property as I enjoy peace and nature. Still pretty social though. If you have dogs count me out because I have allergies. Cats, chooks, rabbits etc are a bonus.
Hi, I'm Toni! I am moving back to Canberra within the next week and am looking for a place to stay. I am flexible with short-term or long-term stays, preferably a furnished room. I am currently working in hospitality and very laid back. When I am not at work, chances are you'll find me watching/playing sport, hanging out with some friends, going for bush walks or going for a swim. I am tidy, know how to pull my weight in the house, am sociable but respect the privacy of others.
We are three junior doctors working at Canberra Hospital. We did university together in Malaysia and have recently moved to Canberra. We are mostly away at work during the week and some weekends too. We enjoy going out to explore food and places as well as having chill nights in cooking together and enjoying a good bottle of wine. We respect the privacy of our housemates, try to keep the volume down and we keep the place tidy.
Recently moved to Canberra to work in the public service. Finishing my degree by distance. Need short term accommodation, preferably around the 2 to 3 month range. Clean and tidy; like to keep my space squared away. Prefer my own space but not adverse to hanging out. New to Canberra, so unfamiliar with the area, wouldn't mind a guide to the city and surrounding areas.
am a registered nurse at the Canberra hospital. I love travelling and socialising , am not a fun of cooking. I am looking for a place preferably near the hospital . As I will be doing am pm and night shifts I will rarely be in the house . I respect people space and privacy and would appreciate if that gesture was receprocated .
Hi! I'm a new grad RN starting at Canberra Hospital in August. I'll be doing shift work (AM, PM, nights) so I'll be seeing you at odd hours of the day. I'm laidback, tidy, and happy to chill out and binge on Netflix. I'm happy to make new friends and also understand the need for self-chill time. Looking for someone to team up with/room with people with a full-time/part-time job of any gender around 1st July. Feel free to message me any questions!
Hi guys! My name is Lara and I’m half French half Italian. I’m a newgrad Midwife working at Canberra Hospital and I’m doing shift work (mornings, evenings and nights). I’m an energetic and social person who enjoys a glass of wine and a chat but I also like having my own space. I cook, clean and am very respectful. I do enjoy having people over and going out but only occasionally. I’d like to find a house near the hospital area and to live with like minded/ easy going people. Feel free to ask me any questions!
WHO: I'm a full-time worker who is clean and reliable but also very quiet. I do tend to keep to myself but I am happy for a chat now and then. I’m vegan, non-drinking and non-smoking (but don’t mind if you’re not), and I am queer-friendly and pet-friendly. My current housemate/landlord can provide a reference if desired. I have lots of sharehouse experience and references are available. WHAT: I’m looking for a tidy place that I can come home to after work and on weekends knowing I can relax in peace and quiet (no ad hoc parties!). I have my own furniture and am hoping to fit a single bed, chest of drawers, bookcase and desk in my room. I also have a small amount of my own cookware for the kitchen, if it can be accommodated. Ideal housemates will be tidy, responsible, and considerate of others. I don’t mind if you drink/smoke/eat meat as long as there’s no smoking indoors or disruptive drunkenness. WHERE: Anywhere in the ACT, so don’t be put off if your suburb isn’t in my preferred list. WHEN: I need to move by June 30 at latest; if moving sooner than that I need to give 2 weeks notice at my current address. HOW: If you would like to meet me and show me your place, please send me a message (with any extra helpful info that is not in your listing), and we'll go from there.
I am a visiting scholar at ANU. I and my wife are not noisy. Also, we are not smoky and alcoholic.
I am a pretty down to earth person who enjoys watching tv, reading and I do medieval re-enactment for my hobby. I like to travel, sew, embroider and occasionally cook. As a shift worker, I work long hours with early starts (6am) or late finishes (11pm). I am quite, private person who enjoys living in a clean and tidy space. Looking for a medium to long term place to stay, I look forward to seeing what Canberra has to offer.
Hello, we have just relocated to Canberra from Wanaka, New Zealand. We are pretty chill, hobbies include eating good food, skiing, biking and wiping down the kitchen bench, all with a glass of rose. Both working full time. We are social and up to meet new people in town but also happy to do our own thing. Would love to hear of any rooms you may have available.
Hi! I'm Adam. I work full time as an animator for a small digital advertising company. I'm very laid back and like to keep things tidy, I mostly keep to myself but I'm always down to socialise! I've lived in a share house for the past 5-ish years so I'm used to pulling my own weight, I'm just keen to upgrade to a bigger place that can offer a bit more privacy and space (as well as a proper sized kitchen!). I have no pets but I miss having pets around so if you've got any that's a bonus as far as I'm concerned. :) And, although it's not a requirement, if you've got a place where I could consider getting a pet of my own that would be amazing. I'm also not keen on moving around a lot so ideally I'm looking for a long-term arrangement, somewhere I can call home. Aiming to stay on the south side of the ACT as my office is there and the stage 2 plans for the light rail taking up a couple of lanes on Commonwealth Avenue bridge and making traffic horrendous sounds terrifying, so I'd rather not deal with that!
Hello! I am a recent high school graduate and have just moved to Canberra from Sydney to work here as an Apprentice in the public service for IT. I am of South Korean background and moved to Australia when i was younger. Currently I am staying with my sister while I find a place to move out to. I am very self aware and i actually enjoy cleaning up after self. I also enjoy company and definitely look forward to meeting new people and spending time together but i also understand and appreciate the need for privacy and time alone.
I'm a former journalist who now works full-time in Media & Communications/ Client Services in Woden. My work hours would be leaving each weekday morning at 7 and home anywhere between 5-6. I also tend to spend a lot of time in front of my computer working so I would prefer not to be locked away in my room but rather be in a central area of the apartment that's social so I can watch TV and interact with housemates at the same time if that's possible. I'm extremely quiet, (although happy for noise at appropriate times), easy-going, friendly, clean up after myself and put things back where I find them. I always appreciate the same, yet don't mind doing the odd little clean-up for a housemate while I'm doing mine. Likewise I cook my own meals, but it's no problem cooking for others. I make a happy relationship with those I share with a priority. Looking for a weekly rent between $200-$300 with all bills and unlimited Internet included.
