About the flatmates

You’d be living with 3 people and 2 cats:
- James 28yo and engineer for John Holland (partnered with Kimberley, we live together in the other upstairs bedroom)
- Kimberley 25yo, looking for work in Psychology field
- Edmund 26yo, studying Cyber Security at UNSW
- Simba is a one-year old stripy ginger semi-long hair domestic kitten, he act like a dog most of the time, is gorgeous, super relaxed and loves cuddles, attention and food.
- Minnie is from the same litter so she has also just turned one, she is a stripy black/grey/brown cat who is extra curious but gets spooked a lot easier than her brother. She is very delicate, feminine, cute, and friendly.

We’re a social bunch and love cooking, parks, walks, early morning swims, outdoor rock climbing, trivia, going away for weekends and Cow & Moon runs. We try to make time to have dinners together out and about in Newtown, to discover new places.

YOU: we’re keen to add a social, friendly, housetrained, tidy and respectful housemate or couple to our home - ideally a similar age and working situation to ours. Shoot us a message!
