Furnished room with own bathroom

Hi, we are Ned and Jess (and our fur baby Milo who is a very loving Ragdoll Kitty). We are a young couple working full time with hobbies on the side. We are looking for a young person similar to ourselves to share our home. We love food and I (Jess) am a massive home body, I love cooking and baking and cleaning our home. Ned spends a lot of time with his hobbies and mates out and about and a lot of weekends have us camping down the coast or catching up with friends and family. We have a large living space and balcony as well as a breakfast bar. There is a communal swimming pool and air conditioning. We live near a corner store with a beautiful coffee shop - The Knox. Walking distance to the farmers market (and Macdonalds). Right on the tram line with plenty of bus stops. You would have your own room with your own bathroom. There is off street parking and our apartment is on the third floor so elevated with the balcony having lots of privacy from neighbours. We are looking for someone to move in asap/whenever. Our last housemate moved out in November and we have finally got around to advertising again. 6-12 months is ideal but we are happy to negotiate lease and such.

Furnished room in a share house

Good size furnished room with wardrobe in a sunny relaxed older style and quirky house. Close to bus and shops. Share with considerate, thoughtful, friendly and mature housemates and bonus cute poodle x companion. Looking for mature housemate (ideally over 30) who is considerate, enjoys household company and also appreciates mutual respect for personal space and privacy. There is a large sunny backyard with many lovely native birds, heaps of herbs and a vegetable patch that needs attention. The house has two living spaces which is a bonus; and the shower, bath and toilet are all separated which also makes for easy sharing despite only having one of each. The house is relaxed but clean (a cleaning roster helps to make this stress free :)). Food and cooking is separate - there is lots of space in kitchen cupboards and extra fridge/freezer. No smoking household.

If you're interested, feel free to text or call. Looking to fill two rooms in a 3 bedroom house that will be available on the 27th of April. Of the two rooms being vacated, one is rather small and the other is average, but if any prospective housemate(s) would prefer the master bedroom, I’d be happy to shift rooms. The house is in North Downer, a short walk from buses/light rail, and a short drive/cycle from the Dickson shops. It has ducted heating throughout and AC in the spacious main living areas. There’s also a very large backyard with an outdoor woodfire BBQ and gardens that have been well kept for growing vegetables etc. Fruit trees including figs, pears, peaches, cherries and more. LGBTIQA* welcome, couples welcome, pets will have to be discussed with the agent/landlord, but may be allowed (the outgoing housemates have a rabbit, so if you have one of those it’s most likely fine) Rent is currently $510, split depending on the room arrangements and total number of housemates.

Our dearest housemate is going overseas for 1 month, we are not trying to replace him (not long-term stay!!) We’re a rollicking house made of musical instruments, feathers, fruit trees, chickens (who live by their own lore hence the house nickname), blue tack and bicycle parts. THE HOUSE: - An open kitchen with dishwasher + all the kitchen furnishing you could dream of including frequent cake baking, apple juicing, Sauerkraut making, preserving, large-scale cook-ups from all different parts of the world (all of us are from different parts of the world and we do enjoy our feasts!), - Separate shower, bathroom and toilet facilities, - Big garage for storage of bicycles and pingpong tables, - That is currently also a workshop for wicked experiments - At least one Catan board at a time, - Flat roof for sunset beer // tea // gin drinking, - Open slate floor dinning area / sitting room / fantastic collection of cookbooks - Did we mention gas central heating? - And the stellar garden? WE'RE LOOKING FOR: - People who are into cheesy dance moves, - Want to live in a house which is as much as house as a community, as "home" - keen to consider communal food sharing arrangements, gardening, composting and eating radishes - have sustainable living practices (you have to love that compost) - eat those veggies (Epic Farmer's Markets is around the corner!) - into organic foods and real food in general (and cooking) - into foraging (Canberra is a great place for that), keen for hunting delicious mushrooms and growing your own food - hopefully going to bring some whacky art/cult/food/other practice into the house and make lots of mess and noise (but actually we're pretty into that, you've just got to not be too adverse to letting us join in), + LGBTQI friendly people, + Generally friendly and accepting, + (do I get to write 'feminists' here? I think I do) Feminists, + also no bigots ♥. FINANCES: - the room is 260$ a fortnight ; - There are seasonal bills (for electricity and gas) and an on going weekly internet bill (approx. 10$ a month).

Hello Potential Housemate! Two lovely rooms are available for rent in Dickson. It is a three bedroom one bathroom house that sits on the border of Dickson and Ainslie, which means it is only 5 minutes walk to either the Ainslie shops (which hosts the best IGA in the world) or Dickson shops and very close to the city. Also right on the doorstep are Mt Ainslie and Mt Majura (lovely walking tracks). The House: The house is a nice 1950s style house, that has been freshly painted, there is a huge backyard complete with two covered areas for entertaining. There is also a big garden outside in the case that you are a bit of a green thumb. The house has plenty of storage space with a big double door garage and a tin shed also. It is also very secure with colorbond fencing on all sides. There is also air conditioning and gas heating in the living room and NBN is in the process of being installed. There is only one bathroom, but it is separate from the toilet, which it makes a bit easier when everyone is showering in the mornings. The Rooms: Both rooms have built in wardrobes and both are a decent size (can easily fit a queen bed plus a desk / other furniture). The slightly larger rooms looks out onto Majura Avenue and is nice and bright. The second room is towards the back of the house and a bit more secluded and peaceful. There is also a spare bed if need be, which can be put in the garage if not required. Rent / Bills: Rent is $200/week for each room and all bills are split evenly between housemates. Bond is equal to 4 weeks rent, you will have to sign a lease, but it is only periodic so you are not locked into anything and are free to leave whenever you like (although long term housemates are preferred).

In the apartment you will just be living with myself as there are only 2 bedrooms. The apartment was renovated a few years ago now with floorboards throughout the home and tiles in the bathroom and kitchen, very easy to keep clean. Kitchen is equipped with a dishwasher and spacious fridge and freezer room. The renovations also included the installation of an air con and heater system which has been amazing at keeping the house the perfect temperature all year round.The bathroom is shared between us and is combined with the laundry space which holds a washing machine and dryer - there is also a communal outdoor close line. As it is a small apartment on the second floor there is no yard space however there is a veranda and many windows to connect you to the outdoors. The apartment has a very open feeling and lots of beautiful views to the surrounding trees. The apartment is close to quite a few bus stops, Northbourne probably one of the closest and will get you into the city in around 15 minutes. We are right in the middle of Dickson and Lyneham so its a very short walk to both these shops and with the new tram line opening soon you will have easy access to this too. We have recently been connected to the nbn the price of which has been included in the rent, other bills including water, gas and electricity are not included in the rent price and split evenly between us.

Unfurnished room in a share house

Easygoing housemates (+1 one well-behaved and extremely cute black cat) share this light-filled 5 bedroom home in Ainslie. The house will be available for three months or more. This depends on the lease, but it's likely to be available for longer. The spacious house stays cool during summer and features all the mod-cons you'd expect: washing machine, dryer, dishwasher, 5-burner range, even a wine fridge. During the cooler months, you can enjoy our wood burner fireplace or our backyard fire pit. The room is well air-conditioned and heated (both central) and comes unfurnished. It's also flexible with furnishings (a queen mattress, bedside table and desk are available). No couples please :) Best of all? The location! The house is a 2-minute walk to Ainslie shops, 5 minutes to the wilderness of Mt Ainslie Reserve and, if you enjoy a tipple, you're just an $8 Uber from Lonsdale Street. I've lived here for 2+ years and will be very sad to farewell it. Send me a message if you'd like to know more about the house! It's available from April 10, but dates can be flexible. Also, the new housemate - you - will not be going on the lease until a new one is signed in a few months, but in the meantime the real estate agent is happy to have tenants who are not on the lease. If you're good with this, and the three month or more period, please let me know in your initial message.

*ROOM HAS BEEN FILLED, PENDING TENANCY APPLICATION COMPLETION - THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO ENQUIRED - NO NEW MESSAGES WILL BE RESPONDED TO AT THIS STAGE* The townhouse is walking distance from the Northbourne Avenue bus stops (and soon the light rail). It's a 10 minute bike ride or 30 minute walk into the city center, and a few minutes from the Dickson Shops and pool. Each bedroom has its own air-conditioning unit, there is a TV in the living room, a pod coffee machine, and a nice backyard with a washing line and an up-and-coming herb garden! The available room is Bedroom 2 in the floor-plan, and the one with the photo of Nefertiti on the wall. It's big enough for a double bed, a desk, and a digital piano, and also has a two-door sliding wardrobe. You have the upstairs bathroom to yourself, and it is right next to the room. Each tenant has their own bathroom. I would prefer to leave my bedframe, mattress and bedside table, but can also leave the room unfurnished if you prefer. An underground car spot is also available, but you will need to discuss the logistics of this with the other housemates. You will be taking over from my lease, which expires on 31 January 2020, after which you will have the option to renew it. Looking forward to hearing from you :)

Looking for either a couple ($340 pw) or single ($225 pw) to stay short-term in our lovely house in Ainslie. It's a three bedroom house with a modern kitchen and bathroom, spacious living room and huge outdoor entertaining area. We also have a blossoming veggie patch, BBQ and Netflix you're welcome to use. The room is furnished with a double bed. It has a built in wardrobe and gets lots of sunlight. Internet & bills not included in rent. The house is a five minute walk to the Ainslie shops which has the best IGA in Canberra (in terms of cheese selection), a pizza place and a solid pub. 15-20 min walk from Braddon and the city. I'd say we're on the cleaner side of things but we're very easy-going about pretty much everything else. I work from home using one room as my office so I'd prefer someone who also works the 9-5 grind to help my concentration but that's not a deal breaker. :) There is a gorgeous little cat we look after sometimes. She is super friendly so if you don't like cats you might have a problem with personal space :P We're pretty flexible so feel free to message with questions :)
