Forrest, Canberra

Unfurnished room in a flatshare

Available: NOW! We have had a last minute withdrawal for the room and is available immediately. The room itself is medium sized and will be unfurnished (easily fitting in a queen bed with extra furniture). It has a decent sized double sliding door wardrobe with shelves and drawers. The apartment is across 2 floors, with the bedrooms upstairs, and a very large living space down stairs with two balconies (front and back). The main balcony looks over a barely used school oval so plenty of privacy. Features include ducted heating and cooling to all rooms, a large kitchen (with a dishwasher!), 3 toilets (1 in laundry) and 2 bathrooms (you would share the main bathroom with one other). The apartment is on the 3rd floor, so there are a few flights of stairs to get up...but it's great for your fitness! The apartment is furnished, however, there is room for more - the furniture has changed a little from the pictures shown. We are a 5 min walk to Manuka, 10 min walk to Kingston and a short drive to the city. If you do own a car, there are visitor spots available in the underground carpark and ample parking out the front. Sorry, but we can't have furry pets and would prefer non-smokers. RENT: $220/week (internet included - $5 per week). BOND IS $1025

Our household is a fun one! There is also a baby in the household 8 weeks in Mid Jan, so you would need to be ok living with a small child if looking to stay after this date. (baby doesn't cry often if at all?)

The room is fully carpeted, features an en suite bathroom with bathtub/shower combo, two sets of built in wardrobes, air conditioning and central heating. (See photos 4 & 5 for room). The house itself was marketed as a 3 bedroom standalone with a massive common area and huge back yard.

Off-street parking is available with additional secure parking in a two-car garage an option if need be. The house comes fully furnished (inc. fridge(s), washer) and there is ample space in our garage for storage. While Deakin may not seem super central, our house sits on the 2 and 3 bus line with buses to civic taking approx. 20 mins, a trip to the Inner South taking 5 minutes and buses to Woden taking around 10 mins. The house is also a 2 minute drive from Manuka, or a 5 Minute drive to Kingston Shops. Perhaps most importantly, an uber back from Civic after a night out will generally only set you back $11.

I love this place so much that I couldn't let it go even though I'll be leaving the country in the beginning of February! You'll be living in an awesome apartment just across the road from the Kingston Foreshore (including Brodburger), Telopea Park and the lake (perfect if you like running/walking/cycling). There is also a tennis court in the apartment complex. The room itself is more than big enough for a double bed, and also includes a built-in wardrobe and a full length mirror. I'm looking for a sub-letter to take my room from the 4th of February until 4th of March (exit date is flexible).

We're only a block from old Kingston shops and a couple of blocks from the foreshore or Manuka. The rooms fit a queen bed and have built-in wardrobes. I own most of the furniture/appliances, but my housemate is taking the fridge/TV, so if you can bring those with you it would be much appreciated!

A light and sunny townhouse in a great location. We're on quiet leafy street just a short walk to the Kingston foreshore and shops, with plenty of cafes around the area. The house is 4 bedrooms - with 2 bathrooms and a powder room attached to the laundry. We have all the usuals that you'd expect in 2018 - dishwasher, aircon, NBN, washing machine and a fiddle leaf fig, so it's nice and homey. Although, the place came with 90s blue couches, but they're actually pretty comfy. Luckily, there's plenty of on-street parking, and the building has visitors spots which are usually free. We have courtyards at both the front and the back of the house, so plenty of spots for outdoor dinners and bbqs or just afternoon lazing with a vino. Lastly, we have HEAPS of storage space. We've got a garage, 2 linen closets, as well as storage up in the attic.
