This furnished (or unfurnished) room could suit a student or young professional looking for a quiet place with lots of privacy in a convenient location! There’s already a cavoodle at the property so unfortunately we can’t accept any other pets! The owner lives next door (dual occupancy) and looks after all the bills ($25 per week), furniture, internet, maintenance etc. The property is set amongst large mature trees and is very quiet, with views of Mount Majura and across the road from a small park. Just a short walk to the bus stop for number 2 bus for Dickson and Civic. The ACU (Australian Catholic University) is less than a 5 minute walk away. ANU and UC are both 8km away.

Unfurnished room in a share house

I'm looking for someone to take my room in Hackett by Friday, November 9. It's an awesome home just near the intersection of Majura and Phillip Avenues. You'd be sharing with two other amazing housemates, Callum and Erin, who work in hospo and a cat - Winston - who does not work. It's a short ride to Braddon / Civic and right near the 2 / 937 bus stop. Rent is $340 a fortnight, paid every second Friday with a bond of $680 to be paid before moving in. This would also mean taking my place on the lease, which expires March 9 but the real estate agent said she doesn't see any problems with the lease continuing from them. (Our real estate agents are great.) Utilities are paid every quarter and internet is $20 per month to be paid before the 14th. The house has one bathroom, big kitchen with electric oven, washing machine and a huge backyard. I'm not 100% on whether we can have additional pets but that's a conversation you can have with the agent. If you've got any more questions get in touch or we can arrange a time to check out the joint.

Ainslie, Canberra

Furnished room in a share house

We are looking for a happy, friendly housemate to share our home. About the room: Sunny, north facing room with a huge built-in wardrobe. It can come either furnished, or unfurnished. We have a wrought iron queen bed frame, a big wooden chest of drawers, and an antique wooden desk and chair we can offer. The mattress is really comfortable. 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 large front garden. About the area: Mount Ainslie is behind our house and you can walk up it via a ridge that also runs along in front of 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 takes 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 everything.

Looking for a couple to share a brand-new 2 bedroom apartment in Dickson. You will have your own master bedroom, bathroom (with bathtub) and undercover parking spot. You will be sharing the apartment just with me – a late twenties, professional female. I work long hours and will be away most weekends, so you will have the apartment to yourself for decent periods of time. The apartment is very conveniently located right opposite the Dickson shops, and a couple of minutes’ walk from the bus and new light rail (which is meant to meant to be up and running in the next few months). 10-15 minutes from Civic and the universities. We will be the first people living to live beautiful brand-new apartment. I will be moving in at the same time, and will be furnishing it with the basics. Your room however will be unfurnished. The apartment looks similar to the photos here (these are Real estate agent’s photos), but the furniture will be different. It also has: • Dishwasher and luxury steel kitchen appliances • Ducted reverse-cycle air conditioning • Large balcony • Indoor sports centre with heated lap pool & gym • Theatre with cinema style seating • Outdoor barbecue & entertaining areas The apartment will be available from mid-October. You will have to go on the lease, which will be for 12 months, and bond will need to be paid. Bills will be split equally between everyone. All genders and orientations welcome. Pets however (unfortunately) cannot be accommodated. If you are interested, please send me a message with a bit about yourself, your interests, if you have lived in share-houses before and we can chat further. While I would prefer a couple with rent being between $300-320. I will consider a single person with the rent being a little cheaper.

This is a handy place, it is easy to get anywhere in town from here. There are a few shopping areas in walking distance to pick from. Buses stop a few houses away if you need that. It has evidently been well looked after over the years. There is new carpet, a gas stove, plenty of hot water and it stays cool inside on hot days. The kitchen is well equipped but there is still space for more stuff if you have any. Which room you'd have is up for negotiating and it would be based on need as they are different sizes with different amounts of storage. I like animals but we cannot have pets here.

It is an amazing location, 15min from Civic and Gungahlin and 20min from Belconnen. With the Hackett shop just across the road and the Dickson shop is just bit further, it's extremely convenient. Even better the bus stops are just outside the door. The duplex does allow pets but due to bad fences dogs are not welcome. I'm happy for you to smoke, you just wouldn't be able to do so inside.
