Watson, Canberra

Room in a share house

The interior is beautiful and bright, the kitchen is shiny and easy to clean, AND we even have hooks for our pans to hang up, which my friend pointed out means we are "real adults." We even have one of those magnetic strip thingies to hold our metal ~cooking utensils.~ The little things I love most about living here: beautiful furniture and artwork, a spacious bathroom that I savor my showers in because it feels like something from Better Homes & Gardens, we have a really nice vacuum & plenty of cleaning supplies, and I do believe an espresso machine has just arrived in our kitchen... Last but not least, we have a spacious backyard with a swingset and tire swing and garden and patio, perfect for afternoon hangs and chats. Also, Ollie! He is my housemate's dog and you'd get to share the space with him too. <3 <3 <3 Oh, and we're a few minutes' walk away from Watson shops (grocery store, the wonderful coffee shop The Knox, and a few restaurants), and relatively close to Dickson shops. And close to the 39 and 200 bus stops to the city. The neighborhood is beautiful too, green and leafy and lots of families and pups. We have off-street parking! Overall, this is one of the loveliest places I've lived, and friends, whenever they visit, always remark at how great the space is. Room can come furnished (double bed + frame, dresser, little table, chair, as pictured) for $100. Side note that my dates are flexible! Let's talk.

Homestay

Rent includes everything (Internet, Utilities, fully furnished master bedroom and home). Commuters welcome if seeking weekdays only. Apologies no couples or additional pets. Seeking a clean, considerate and responsible individual, working full-time, to join my home for 1 - 3 - 6 months (with a possibility of extension). Being dog friendly is essential. (My recent housemate won a new role overseas. She was an awesome fit to my home and adored my sweet pooch, enjoying another soul who provides hugs and additional security to the house.) I have a 3 bedroom plus study home, in the quiet sanctuary suburb of older (cooler) Watson. Within 5 mins walking distance to Watson shops (Knox Cafe) and Mt. Majura walking tracks, for a nature escape. Very central to the city centre and public transport within easy walking distance. Off street parking is available or if preferred can lock behind gated driveway. Offering the sunny master bedroom of my home, with floor to ceiling mirrored built-in wardrobe. The master bedroom is at the rear side of the house, so very quiet and is fully furnished with a queen size bed, linen, pillows, doona and electric blanket (for those who feel the cold) included. Fresh towels included also. Shared retro bathroom in great condition with updated shower screen (sharing only with myself). Central heating and air conditioning. Superior washing machine. Unlimited NBN. New Kitchen with everything you need (pots, pans, kitchen gadgets, juicer, coffee machine, fridge - the lot!) and renovated combined lounge/dining area. A chest freezer in the garage if you're a bulk buyer of frozen hoard. Brick garage also available for some storage if required. Sunny back deck (for smokers and sun worship) and large grassy back lawn with surrounding private hedges. You simply bring yourself, your clothes and groceries - too easy!. If you feel like my home could be a place for you to call home, please feel free to contact me.

Room in a share house

Available from 10 March, our place suits young professionals or students looking for a quiet space with lots of privacy in the Inner North. We are a short walk to the bus (route #2) for Dickson or Civic and 2km from a tram stop. 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, furniture, internet, gardening, maintenance etc. (extra $25 per week addition to rent) The property is set amongst large mature trees and is very peaceful, with views of Mount Majura and across the street from a small park. The ACU (Australian Catholic University) is less than a 5 minute walk away. ANU and UC are both 8km away. Close to Mount Majura, Hackett shops and across the street from Canberra Magic Kitchen (vegan meals).

Unfurnished room in a share house

Excellent location! A cozy little old place snug between the Dickson shops and the Ainslie shops (5mins to both) and 15mins from the city/ANU. It's an easy 20min cycle into the city along very good bike paths, which I do most days. Quiet neighbourhood with friendly neighbours makes this a lovely spot to relax after a hard day working. There's plenty of parking for yourself and any visitors. Few FYI points: - The room is unfurnished and we’ll post more photos ASAP :) - There’s a chance the real estate will increase the rent in the coming months to align it with market value. So the room rent may increase to $190-$200. We’ve been living here for 2yrs and decided to stay because the rent will still be reasonable for the great location.

Lyneham, Canberra

2.49 km from Watson

Furnished room in a share house

The house is a 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom brand new townhouse with underground parking, completed in December 2018. As the house is a 10 min bike ride or bus trip from ANU, it is perfect for uni students. The address is also less than a 400m walk to the Dickson terminus once the light rail is up and running. For those who have a car, the house is just a 10 minute drive from Belconnen and Gungahlin, and only five minutes to the city. Coles, Woolworths and IGA are also very close by. The house is fully furnished, so new housemates will only need to bring their own belongings and linen into the house. It has a large (lockable) side yard that receives sunshine throughout the day, and many windows which allow for both light and warmth to flood the home during daylight hours. The house is equipped with high quality appliances, such as a Bosch oven, stove top and dishwasher, an LG washing machine, Methven taps and shower heads and a Nespresso coffee machine. You can also stream to your heart's content with unlimited NBN fibre to the home. On top of the rent, a $20 utilities fee is required per week to cover expenses such as the internet and cleaner, as well as any other communal things we may need. Bills such as water and electricity will be split evenly between the housemates when they are invoiced to us. Couples welcome, however there will be a higher rent. Move in dates and rent prices can also be negotiated!

Lyneham, Canberra

2.81 km from Watson

Unfurnished room in a share house

Seeking a housemate to share a lovely 3 bedroom home located on a quiet street in North Lyneham, 10 minutes from the City Centre. The home is modern and fully-furnished, but the bedroom comes vacant for you to add your own furniture. Kitchen appliances, dishwasher, diningwares, dining table/chairs, sofas, TV, washing machine, BBQ etc. will be available for you to use. The home is very close to North Lyneham shops and bus stops which frequently service City, Dickson, Woden and Belconnen – buses 1, 30 and 31. The ‘Next Gen’ health club is only a few mins walk down the road – offering gym, pool, tennis and squash courts etc. The bedroom is quite large, measuring 3.7m x 3m so it will easily fit a queen bed with bedside tables. It has a built-in robe with modern mirror doors, providing hanging space as well as compartment storage. The floor plan of the home is great as it has separate living areas and the room for rent is segregated from the main bedroom. The third bedroom is smaller than the room being offered and is currently rented by a 23yr old male. You'll just be sharing a bathroom and a separate toilet down that end of the house. You’ll also get a space to park your car down the side of the house - no need to park on the street. The backyard is nice for summer BBQ’s, with no maintenance required – and it also has a veggie patch if you’d like to use it. Rent is $280 per week, and includes electricity, gas, water, NBN internet and Netflix subscription. Bond will be equivalent to 2 weeks rent and rent payment is fortnightly, payable in advance. However, this is negotiable depending on your circumstances i.e. 4 weeks bond, pay rent monthly. This will be perfect for someone who is working in Canberra from interstate or a young professional who enjoys socialising but is past the binge drinking years. Long-term stay preferred. No couples please. No pets considered as there is already a dog at the residence. Available mid/late Jan 2019.

A great house on quiet street. Recently renovated. New kitchen and bathrooms. It's spacious and open. I have a friendly dog who stays with me a couple of days a week. Very convenient location, 5 mins to Dickson, 10 to the city, 10 to Gunghalin and 10 to Belconnen. We have Netflix, Stan, unlimited high speed NBN, a BBQ, a home gym and a handsome Staffy/ boxer named Raphael. We also have chickens, so free eggs ;) The main living area has reverse cycle A/C, and the whole house has ducted heating. We have a washing machine, dryer and two clothes lines. The house is kept very clean and tidy, as we both carry our weight with the cleaning, although the garden has gotten a bit out of hand over summer, so bonus point if you like gardening :) We live in a positive home environment and everybody enjoys everyone's company, and we would like to keep that going. If you are interested in the room, feel free to message and we can arrange an inspection.
