Watson, Canberra

Unfurnished room with Own bathroom

I have a room for rent in Watson. I'm currently living in a 3br apartment by myself and want to rent out the second bedroom. The third bedroom is a study so there'll only be you and me! The room is light and airy, recently painted and freshly carpeted. It fits a queen bed and has a built-in robe with shelves and hanging space. It is unfurnished. It opens onto the rear balcony. You'll have sole use of the main toilet/bathroom (except when I need to use the washing machine) as I have an ensuite. You'll have a secure underground car park. I have NBN that you can use for $30 a month. Electricity to be split evenly. I'll cover the water. There is a bus stop right out the front of the unit complex on the road and within the complex there are two tennis courts and a swimming pool. It's about 10 minutes drive to town/the ANU and less than 15 minutes to UC.

Ainslie, Canberra

Room in a share house

Our home is across the road from Mt Ainslie nature reserve. Short walk to local shops, quick cycle or reasonable walk to the city and close access to buses. The room has lovely big windows and built-in wardrobe space, and is connected to the central heating (which we use thoughtfully :). The room has a comfy double bed in it but can moved if need be. It is best inhabited by someone who is a solid sleeper as sound-proofing in the room isn't great. Current housemates are Noemi and Valeria (12) from Mexico, and Amie and Kylie from Aust. The house is large and more than comfortably accommodates all of us. Noemi is in her last year of an anthropology PhD, Valeria just started highschool, Kylie just moved here from Darwin and is also doing studies in Anthropology, and Amie works in community arts and is involved in a number of other comm'ty based projects.

Lyneham, Canberra

Room with Own bathroom

One large queen bedroom (3.6m x 3.4m floor space), unfurnished, built-in robes, separate bathroom. Another bedroom available to store additional furniture, or use as a separate study/sitting room. Three bedroom house (main bedroom separated from other bedrooms); living spaces in between. Ducted gas heating. Transact cable internet wi-fi. Garage. Covered rear deck. Small, low maintenance garden (no work for housemate). Neat, tidy, quiet home - with music usually playing in the background (eclectic taste). Short walk to Dickson shopping centre (including Woolworths and the many restaurants), and two gyms (Flames and NextGen). Suit a mature, social, open-minded housemate. I prefer a sociable environment: a mate sharing a house, rather than a tenant. Sharing a drink and chat after work, the occasional meal, sitting down and watching the footy/TV/DVD together; not someone who spends every evening in their (bed)room. A fellow tennis/squash player or beach-goer would be great. Non-smoker requirement. Stable professional job who can pay rent on time. About me: 50, Public Servant. I walk to work most days (weather permitting), and keep regular hours. Non-smoker, and prefer quiet nights in or catching up with friends in a cafe/bar/restaurant rather than clubbing or partying. Love sports (prefer playing, but also watching) ... tennis, squash, soccer, netball. Enjoy beach (regular trips to the Coast on weekends in summer), cooking, theatre, reading, sci-fi movies/TV.

Room in a share house

Position, position, position... its so hard to capture this wonderfully lovely place in my quick snapshot photos. I've been renting in Canberra for 6 years and THIS homely house is the best bang for my rental $$ than anywhere else I've rented in Canberra. Ive been here 2 years. On offer is a VERY LARGE bedroom overlooking the front porch, surrounded by native gardens. The house is a 1950's solid brick, with most of its original charm still intact, including original 50's kitchen with a wood stove, next to the more modern gas stove. Original 50s bathroom with a HUGE pale blue full size bath and a more modern shower. Unlike most other houses of similar age in Canberra, this place has been very well insulated (thanks to Kevin Rudd), it never gets hot in Summer, and has efficient central heating for the winter. There is loads of cupboard space in the bedrooms and even more in the cavernous hallway/ballroom. Being across the road from Lyneham Shops; with a Butcher, Bakery, A Candlestick-maker, IGA Supermarkert, The Front Cafe, Tilleys, a Post Office AND having a bus stop to ANU on the doorstep are huge benefits. Overall its a very spacious and homely house with loads of storage space, huge low maintenance rear garden with a productive vegetable patch and 4 chickens. There is also a secure 1.5 car garage, a handy easy access lockable bicycle shed, and a gardening shed for EVEN more storage if needed. If you'd like to see the place please send me a message here.

Room with Own bathroom

Hi there, I'm a professional female in my late twenties looking for someone to rent the spare room of my flat. The apartment is nice and spacious and gets lots of light. The bedroom offered has a large built in robe and access to a courtyard. The place has all modern conveniences such as washer/dryer, dishwasher (albeit a small one), and heated towel rails in the bathrooms. Its a five minute walk to Lonsdale Street, 15 minute walk to the city and close to transport, however a secure underground parking spot is included. There's also a small but lovely garden, which I'm kinda proud of. The place has NBN, Netflix and Stan and cleaners come once of fortnight, all of which is included in the rent. The room essentially has its own bathroom as the other bedroom has an ensuite, however this bathroom is also used by guests and I occasionally use the bath. Pretty flexible with furnishings. The place is pretty full already so not great if you have a tonne of stuff, however there is a small storage unit in the garage to store stuff in. Happy to discuss providing a bed/bedding if needed.
