Erica

Looking in: Windsor, South Yarra, Burnley, Balaclava, Saint Kilda, West Melbourne, Flemington, Princes Hill, Kensington, North Melbourne, Ivanhoe, Coburg North, Coburg, Northcote, Thornbury, Collingwood, Carlton, Fitzroy, Brunswick

Hey! I'm a Canadian (from Toronto) travelling through Australia and decided I loved Melbourne so much I have to stay for a while. I'm currently working full time at a restaurant in the CBD and also for a startup in sustainable fashion. I'm very used to sharing space with other people so I'm very easy going, open minded and respectful. I love to cook healthy food, be active (running, yoga, hiking) and explore local events. I also eat a predominantly vegetarian diet so if you don't want meat in the house I have no problem with that.

Tara

Looking in: Kensington, Footscray, Glen Iris, Seddon, Malvern, South Melbourne, South Yarra, Port Melbourne, West Footscray, Kingsville

Hello, I'm Tara. I am 30 and I do some freelance marketing/writing on weekdays, and work in bars and clubs on weekends and some weekday nights. I also have a fitness/dance background. This is my last winter in Melbourne, and I would like a safe place to stay for 10 months to 1 year. I plan to move interstate in March/April/May 2018 to study. But I promise to pay my bills and rent until then! I am staying in Melbourne for just under a year longer so I can work through some legal processes (good stuff). I am currently based in the inner Western suburbs, but would consider strategic suburbs like Port Melbourne or South Melbourne, or suburbs I'm sentimental about (and know well) like Malvern or Glen Iris. It needs to be close to public transport BUT with a parking spot, for my little red Ford Festiva. Prefer unfurnished as I have my own furniture, but will consider a semi-furnished studio. Awesome things about me: - self-sufficient - private, quiet, busy - health-conscious - drug-free, debt-free Do contact me. PS: I share a lovely 3 level townhouse in West Footscray. I believe it is too big and superfluous. I need to live alone so I can feel safe and get on with going through naturalization and passport-getting. The only way I would consider sharing is if it was modern, with 1 male and if I had an ensuite bathroom

Meg

Looking in: Coburg, Ivanhoe, Essendon, Flemington, Kensington, Footscray, Alphington, Preston, Thornbury, Fairfield, Abbotsford, Collingwood, Northcote, Fitzroy North, Fitzroy, Brunswick East, Carlton North, Carlton, North Melbourne

Hi, I'm a 32yo professional that has recently re-established myself in Melbourne after spending 10 years in Western Australia. I'm looking to move from my existing share house to something with a bit more room and in a much quieter street. Generally looking in the north and west within a 30 PT or bike ride of the CBD. I work a regular 8-5 job with very occasional field work away. I've spent the majority of the past 15 years in share houses and as such I come to you as a clean, tidy and respectful housemate whom contributes to household chores. I enjoy sharing a meal and socialising with the household, but am also busy and happy to do my own thing. My weeknights are generally pretty quiet, but I tend to plan quite a few hiking/camping/skiing/family trip for the weekends. I also love travel, dancing salsa and sitting on the front porch with a wine. I'm looking for a small household with not more than 1-2 other people. Please feel free to contact me if you have any further questions or would like to meet up and chat! Thanks for stopping by my profile.

Yvette

Looking in: Kensington, North Melbourne, Footscray, Seddon, Kingsville, Spotswood, Yarraville

Writer, student, cricket tragic and aussie rules fan, loving life in Melbourne since I moved from country WA at the start of 2016. I'm pretty easy going, enthusiastic about life, enjoy cooking and eating healthily, and keeping fit and active (cycle, walk, gym, swim, cricket). My dream house share would be a quiet, friendly, clean and tidy household in the inner west - emphasis on the clean and tidy bit! I'm over grotty cluttered house shares. I'm seeking like-minded housemates who will all do their bit to help keep the house (and garden where there is one) presentable. I enjoy a quiet drink most nights, and would be up for some shared cooking and socialising. I do need my own quiet and private space though, as I often work and write from home, so a decent-sized bedroom where I can fit my desk, bookcase and bedroom furniture is a must. Finding a housemate who's also into sport would be a huge bonus! I play cricket for Spotswood CC in the summer, go to many cricket and footy matches (Sheffield Shield, BBL, AFL) and watch even more on TV/live apps. I also enjoy exploring new places and catching live music or writing related events. I'm currently in a share house I've called home for 1yr+ that is better than many, so I'm not in a huge rush to move out; but I am keen to find housemates and home where I will fit in better.

Zac:: Freelance graphic designer, also doing an online sociology degree at uni full time (currently first year). I like to make art, grow veggies, hike, binge watch whatever shows I'm currently addicted to. Bit of an introvert / extrovert hybrid, depending on the mood I can either be up for long chats and random adventures, or just keen to stay in and chillout with some music or movies. Ra:: Black kitty who likes to chase toys and catch mice. Bit of a weirdo who wags his tail like a dog (not kidding), can't meow (never learned to or something??) and makes a chirping sound at meal times kinda like a velociraptor... He's fully toilet trained (ie. there's not even kitty litter in the house because he only ever toilets outside) and he's very low maintenance – not attention seeking, doesn't shed hair etc.

Christine

Looking in: Carlton, Saint Kilda, Flemington, Brunswick East, West Melbourne, Yarraville, Collingwood, Fitzroy, Elwood, Richmond, Northcote, Brunswick, Footscray

Hello! I'm an expat of the forest covered hills in the Dandenong Ranges and have been happily living in the city for the last 6months. The council has an issue with our landlord so we had to move out immediately. I'm on a mission to find an alternative ASAP. I love live music, camping, gardening, cycling, photography and I spend most of my week nights catching up with friends, wandering through parks, seeing movies or listening to some of the awesome local roots music in a cosy back street bar. I'm a professional at the share house thing and have references but most importantly, I'm respectful, tidy, honest, I pay up on time & I generally get along with everyone because I'm very open minded and easy going having lived with many people over the years from a child. I have a full time 8:30-5:30pm Mon-Fri job as an Inventory Controller in Hawthorn. I'm queer though no one ever guesses & I love animals if you have any. I spend between 4-6months a year house / farm sitting for furry friends when their pet humans are away. If you want to know more, please feel free to contact me anytime. Thanks for reading and hope to hear from you soon :)

Hi! My name is Coby and I hope you're having a nice day so far! I am looking for a room at the moment and I am hoping to move in as soon as possible before the 15th of May 2017. Just a little snippet about myself... I am a very friendly guy, in my early 30s, working as a social worker for the State Gov. I'm open-minded, honest, respectful, and down to earth. I like meeting new people, socialising, catching up with friends, travelling, exploring different places, having a laugh, and pretty much enjoy what life has to offer. I always pay bills on time, like to be clean and tidy, and love doing outdoorsy stuff in my spare time. I'm pretty flexible with most arrangements and I'm an easy going type of person. Please contact me so we could arrange a time for an inspection. I am also interested in teaming up with like-minded people for a shared house. Thanks and I hope to hear from you soon! :) Cheerily, Coby

Johan

Looking in: Fitzroy, Albert Park, Richmond, Kensington, Prahran, Cremorne, South Melbourne, East Melbourne

I am a happy healthy fit uncomplicated casual and non-smoking professional. I have lived in Sydney for the past decade and have opted to relocate to Melbourne (due to a great full time job) and make Australia's sport capital my new home. I enjoy company as much as i enjoy solitude, although a Barossa Red will always lure me into a social gathering. I do not enjoy beer or fast foods. Home and or slow cooking is my preference enjoyed in company, and, with a decent Red. In terms of my living quarters I'm all in favour of Neat and Tidy living. A cluttered environment disrupts my contentment mood. I'd rather sacrifice 60 minutes to tidy the kitchen and communal living area, than slouch in front of the TV amidst clutter and jumble. I'm looking forward to making new friends and EnJoYiNg the abundant array of fine living, Melbourne offers. Please feel free to contact me should you be interested in setting up an apartment/small house. My preference in terms of locations would be Albert Park, Prahran, Richmond and South Yarra. I am open to persuasive arguments regarding other suburbs ... Best of Luck with your house hunting.
