Ainslie, Canberra

1.42 km from Downer

Room in a share house

About the room: Sunny and quiet, you can see the backyard through the window. It can come either furnished (minus the mattress), or unfurnished. We have a bed frame, a big wooden chest of drawers, and an antique wooden desk and chair we can offer. About the house: It is a cosy and sunny house, with off-street parking, three bedrooms, a bathroom (both a bath and a shower), separate toilet, reverse cycle air-con, dishwasher, and bathroom heat lamps. There is also a big backyard with lots of fruit trees, a big organic veggie garden, a garage and bike shed, as well as a front garden. About the area: Mount Ainslie is behind our house and you can walk up it via a ridge that also runs along behind the house, with lots of pretty birds and kangaroos. We are in between Dickson and Ainslie shops (a 5 min ride either direction or you can take the bus), and there's a bus that goes to the city/ANU directly opposite our house. Otherwise, the bike path is just a few metres from our house, is a pretty ride through the wetlands and take about 10-15 minutes to get to Civic. The suburb has nice wide streets and is a relaxing haven from the city, while also feeling very close to all the 'action' (:

The house has ducted heating and cooling. It is close to the bus and 5 minutes drive to city/ANU. It is a beautiful cottage and the room has a large French door opening onto a deck. I provide Stan, Netflix and AppleTV (in living room). I own the house so there are no real estate inspections to worry about.

It's at the other end of the house from the living and dining rooms if you need some personal space. In the front garden is an outdoor table with directors chairs and folding umbrella.

Room in a Flatshare

Sadly our housemate has just scored an amazing place of her own in Canberra so we're looking for somebody relaxed and friendly to move in sometime in April. It's a spacious place with a nice bit of garden for anybody with a green thumb. Because the housemate moving out is taking some furniture with her if you have any bits and pieces that is a plus, but not essential.

Unfurnished room in a Flatshare

Love being close to everything? After a low maintenance flat with fast internet and relaxed roomies? We're Dave and Christina, two twenty-something professionals, who are looking for a third housemate for a cosy Turner flat. We're both fairly busy work-wise so the new roomie would be relaxed and respectful, clean but not obsessive. The room fits a double bed and a bunch of bookshelves, and includes a built-in wardrobe. The outside balcony is lovely in the warmer months and the lounge area is cosy in the cool/cold/bloody awful months. Visiting partners/guests are always welcome. The flat is just off Barry Drive on a quiet street facing the park. We're directly across the road from the City-Lyneham bike path and it's a 5-10 minute stroll to Civic, Braddon, ANU, and a bus stop with regular services across the city. Rent will be paid fortnightly. Electricity and internet bills are split evenly. Anything else you'd like to know? Send through a message with a bit of information about yourself and we will get back to you :)

Furnished room in a share house

Hi : ) The room thats available is furnished with a new queen mattress. I am a Personal Trainer who works from home, in a private training studio next to the house. The house is quiet, cozy and comfortable. It is a quiet street opposite a reserve, parks and ovals. All rooms have a great view out into the garden. It is a very short walk to local shops cafe, chemist, supermarket, and service station. Walking distance to University Canberra and the AIS/GIO Stadium, and to bus stops. 10 mins drive to ANU & Canberra City, 20 mins from the airport. I enjoy gardening and have a big backyard and vegetable garden. I like the idea of my home being a quiet place to escape and relax from the chaos of a busy life. I am happy to spend time and get to know my housemate, as well respect their privacy! I do have 2 small dogs that are my shadow and with me all the time. They sleep in the lounge room, they are clean friendly and wont interfere with your living space. They are very well behaved and trained. I do have outdoor storage if you need it. Plus there is the option of removing my furniture and replacing it with your own. I love living here its a great spot. Its close to the city, but doesn't feel like your living in the burbs with the reserve opposite and the neighbours are set down the back and side of the block so it feels quite private. The only house rules i have is that i like to keep shoes off inside the house. This keeps the floors clean. I am more than happy to keep up with the cleaning, and just ask for you to look after your bedroom.
