$400/week36 year old man

Hi, I am a single, clean, quiet, Australian, moving to Canberra from Sydney for work. I like my privacy, peace and quiet most of the time. So I'm looking for either my own place or sharing with 1-2 quiet people. My main job will be office-based but my second job is WFH after-hours so ideally I want housemates that don't work fom home evenings & weekends so we don't disturb each other. But if you work from home weekday business hours that won't be an issue. I'm independent and like my downtime but would like to socialise on occasion as I get lonely. I enjoy video games, board games, trivia, bushwalking and gym. Essential: Indoor cat-friendly. If you have pets they need to be ok with cats. If there is no attached bathroom/ensuite then the cat has a litter tray that would go in a bathroom or the laundry - people need to be ok with that. The cat has to sleep somewhere that can access the litter tray (not my bedroom as my door will be shut when I sleep) Ideal features: * Quiet, peaceful location (no plane/train/truck noise) and bedroom has privacy. Quiet neighbours too. * English-speaking housemate(s). * Non-smokers that includes visitors. * Need to be LGBT tolerant/inclusive * No shiftworkers ideally or people coming/going early morning or late nights, unless you are able to come/go quietly, then it won't be an issue. * The room needs to be at least 3x3.5m (bigger if no BIR) to fit queen bed, tv and desk * Respectful, considerate, sensible housemates. * Fast, unlimited (preferably) internet (at least available if not already connected) * Available for at least 6 months * Housemates not OCD about cleaning (I am happy to pay for a cleaner) * I may need space somewhere for my own fridge/freezer unless yours is huge/has plenty of space. * Ensuite * Storage space Bonus: * Fenced yard * Greenery/natural surrounds My budget is including everything - no extra charges please. My cat is house-trained, hypoallergenic, non-shedding and is used to spending a lot of time indoors. He can be restricted from any room that has a door and can stay in my room exclusively if you prefer. I want to get another cat in the future, however this can be delayed if the household already has another pet that is friendly with my cat. I am in Sydney so any inspections outside of Sydney need to be done virtually, at least in the first instance. I would like to see a floor plan first - just a rough, hand-drawn one will do. A chat with housemates, then if that goes well am happy to come down and pay bond/get keys etc before move-in day. I will likely have to compromise on some things so not expecting to find an ideal place straight away. Anywhere in or around Canberra will do.

$250/week30 year old non-binary

Hi I'm Ripley 🌻 I'm 30 and have lived in Canberra for 10 years. Over time I've fallen in love with Canberra's nature reserves, walking trails, history and cultural institutions. I'm looking to join a safe, kind and inclusive household near ANU. Somewhere in Canberra's inner North or around the Red hill area would be wonderful. A little bit about me...   😄 I'm 50 / 50 extroverted  / introverted. I love getting lost in a good novel, watching ABC series, going on walks by myself in the wilderness and sitting contemplatively in art galleries. But I also have a rich and full social life (mostly I meet up with friends outdoors for walks and bike rides). I love to have a laugh, meet new people, play board games and have an occasional chat over a glass of wine 🇯🇵  I have Japanese heritage. I love cooking traditional Japanese food and would always be up for cooking housemates a Japanese meal. I also have sushi socks and a collection of many, many Japanese ceramics 🎨 I'm a great lover of art. The National Gallery is one of my favourite places in Canberra. I would bring lots of art to a household (but happy to keep it in my room if preferred) 🏳️‍⚧️ I'm trans / non-binary. It's really (really, really) important to me to be a part of a household that's LGBTIA+ friendly and accepting 🪴   I have a vast collection of indoor plants and would be happy to display them throughout a house or keep them in my room  📖 I'm a bit (okay a lot) of a nerd. I love research especially anything feminist, equity or queer related. I'm always giving people book recommendations (my latest recommendation is the book 'Data Feminism'...it is sooo good seriously) 🏛️ I previously worked as a tour guide around Canberra, so if you enjoy hearing fun facts about Canberra I can definitely provide. I'm also happy to show you around the cultural institutions 🔥 Final fact - I'm very passionate about making Canberra a more equitable place. I've spent many years volunteering and working in the area of youth mental health. Advocating for better mental health services and dismantling the stigma around help-seeking is something really close to my heart What I'm seeking.... - A household that is genuinely friendly and relaxed - Housemates that are up for the occasional board game night  - A house culture that is respectful of people's space, energy and time (as this is one of my key values) - Somewhere near a nature track - A place with lots of natural light  - A household that welcomes plants and art  - Somewhere I can stay for roughly 6 months (but this flexible) - I love animals so it's a definite plus if there are pets involved (but I won't be bringing any of my own) A few other things... - My research work and social life keeps me pretty busy. I'm out and about a few nights a week but won't be bringing lots of friends over  - I'm a live very COVID safe (triple vaxxed)
