About the property

If you are looking for a home (short or long-term) that's comfy with space to rest and look out your window to birds and clouds, or to write and create on the days you don't have to work, where you are close to wide-open spaces, and walking distance to public transport and the city (15mins slow walk, 5mins on the bike) and the beach (10 mins), this two-story house that we call Swamp Castle would suit you. There are three bedrooms upstairs, you would have your own bathroom, and two smaller rooms downstairs used as studio/study. A nice backyard with a vegetable garden, and the wetlands on your doorstep. If you are looking just for a room and your own space, you could rent a bedroom/bathroom.
But If you are someone who works both at home and goes into the office and wants a studio/office as well as just a bedroom,,, then you would then just be sharing with one other (275$ ), enjoying the quiet. I moved to Altona from the North so i could enjoy a swim every day, a great community, feel connected to nature (lots of conservation going on down here) whilst still having access to the city to work (a university), dance and catch up with friends; where i had the space to work and be creative instead of squeezing me (and my brain) into a wee little flat or room in a share house. If that's what you might be looking for, too, then happy to talk further via email

About the flatmates

I work in the creative industries/at a university. I invest time and energy in my home (establishing a vegie garden for instance) because i want it to be welcoming and comfortable for those who visit and live there. My priorities in sharing a home-space is open, honest communication and negotiating how to make the space work best for everyone. The house is functional: stove, dishwashers, all those things and I like to cook and share a meal now and then. However, i'm not a super-tidy person. I'm clean and i like my home space to be restful and comfortable and functional for all. But if you are the kind of person who needs the dishes done before you eat; or the salt and pepper to go back in the right place, straight away, you may not cherish sharing the kitchen with me ! :)
