Hello there! My name is Anna and I am a Danish girl going to Townsville for my semester abroad at JCU. I am tidy, easy to live with, quite social, and love being outdoors. During my semester, I obviously need to pass all exams, but my main focus will be getting great experiences and meeting new people. Therefore, I hope to end up in a house were my housemates and I can be social at times while having the privacy to study at other times. As I moved out of my parents' house when I was 20, I am able to live by myself and cope with everyday challenges. I am looking for a share house that is already furnished, since I am unable to bring furniture. The location should be with easy access to uni and the city, either by bike or public transport. I arrive in Townsville on July 12, and have booked a room for the first week, leaving me time for visiting potential housemates before making a commitment. If you are looking for a new housemate during semester 2 this year, feel free to message me the details of your room, and we might be able to set up a meeting for when I am in town.

Hi, My name is Sarah and I'm a full-time working professional looking for a room to rent mid July. I am a clean, tidy and social 22 year old and would like to find a long term rental in Townsville (very flexible with suburb). Happy to consider any rooms but would ideally like to live with housemates of similar age or a little older. I am very respectful and considerate of others and have lived in share houses previously. Please send me a PM with photos and a bit about your place, or if you have any other questions :) Thanks everyone.
I have just moved out to Australia to start a new job as a residential Youth worker. I am an outdoorsy person and to be fair will hardly be at the accommodation. I am clean and tidy and looking for somewhere decent to rest my head, preferably near the coast to go fishing haha.
Hi! My name is Natascha. I am a Danish student studying at the University of Southern Denmark. From July to November, 2017, I am studying a semester at JCU in Townsville. I am 22 years old, and moved out of my parents house at the age of 19, thus I am used to take responsibilities. I am very organized and hope that my housemates appreciate clean surroundings as well. I hope to meet new people and get a lot of great experiences during my stay. And it would be nice to live with someone who is social, but still respects a closed door once in a while. My preferences: I look for a place to live near the city or JCU, preferably with other students or people in the age range of approximately 20-30. The house (and room) needs to be furnished, since I will not be able to bring my own things from Denmark. And it would be great if my potential room did not have a carpet, since I am allergic to dust. It is a plus, but not a must if there is a pool ;) When arriving in Townsville on July 12. I have booked a room for a week, thus giving me time to visit potential housemates before making a commitment. Feel free to message me with details of the room, if you think that I could be a potential housemate, and let's set up a meeting.
The highlight of of this place is location, location location!!!! It is within walking distance of the city and the strand. It has a resort style pool next door and it always shaded and is cool and refreshing. The room is a decent size with a fan and air conditioning plus has a beautiful view of Castle hill from the balcony!!! It has a built in wardrobe with bedside drawers included. Really all you need is a bed!! The rest of the house is fully furnished. It is an upstairs/downstairs townhouse with an extra toilet downstairs. Their is a lovely courtyard out the back😊 I have a lovely pet cat called Havanah who is well trained, so liking animals is very important.
Hi, we are a sweet Scandinavian couple in the start 30's, we are pretty new to Townsville, only been here since January. We are both working and are currently staying 7 km's from the city, but really wanna find a place closer. We are looking for a nice private place close to the city and the strand. Preferably with some sort of outdoor area, as we enjoy the outdoors a lot.
I am a Danish engineering student, going for a semester in Townsville (2. period 2017). Looking for a place to stay during my study period. I am easy going and prefer social flatmates, but also respect a closed door. Contact me if you want to know more.
Open and breezy with plenty of room to move so not bumping into other tenants all the time. Fully air con, parking under house with plenty of storage. Close to town and ocean/ross river. Fibre to the home. Solar PV. Partly furnished.
5th floor apartment with a view over the city and river. Pool, spa, BBQ area, tennis court all in the apartment complex. In the city with a 5min walk to just about anything you need. The apartment is mostly furnished. I have a fridge, freezer, washing machine etc. Just needs some brightening up. Would welcome additional furniture. The bedroom, however, is empty.
We (that's Jack and Anja) are looking for someone to move in with us into our beautiful old Queenslander with lots of character. Jack has bought the house a couple of years ago and we've been doing lots of renovation on it since, to make it a paradise everyone wants to call a home. The house has got 3 bedrooms, one of them could be yours (we'd like to keep one as a guestroom for visitors). It has got 2 windows, one of them facing the veggie patch and garden. There is a temporary milkcrate-bed in there at the moment, which can be used or stored underneath the house, if you're bringing your own. Right next to the bedroom is the bathroom with a big shower, a washing machine, toilet and lots of storage room for everyone's belongings. There is also a little office which at the moment is mainly used by Anja for her online studies and crafty stuff. The heart of the house is the big open living space where we like to chill on the couch, listen to music and dance through the kitchen whilst cooking amazing dishes for ourselves and sometimes for friends. From the kitchen/livingroom there are sliding windows facing the big deck and views onto our beloved garden. The deck invites to chill in one of the hammocks, do yoga on, have breakfast/lunch and dinner, be creative , read a book and listen to the birds. Because there really is not much else in our soundscape. We're very lucky to have a quiet neighbourhood. Downstairs there is a big garden, which is ever evolving and growing into a more and more beautiful space for everyone. Jack is a landscaper so he's got the vision, know-how and passion to create wonderful landscape in the back yard. At the moment there are 2 big projects happening. One is the veggie patch, which we've extended and are just starting to grow our own food again (which we like to share of course), and the second project is a paving job/water feature/ hanging daybed overlooking the vegetable garden. Underneath the house there's lots of storage room and the washing line, as well as Jack's workbench. All in all there is still quite a bit of work to do around the house and the garden, but it is already very liveable and homely.

Hi there! We are two German students who will be attending JCU from July to December. We are studying Biology in Germany and are planning to major in Marine Biology in a few years which is why we are so excited to visit Australia for the first time. We enjoy going out with new friends and spending time cooking or doing sports. We are non-smokers and fun to live with :)

I am into fitness and the outdoors who also enjoys being social and would like to be living with like minded people.

I enjoy being and meeting with people. I am friendly, intelligent and fun to be around. I love to learn and to be learned. I am studying to be a Civil Engineering Professor and welcome the presence of others. I recently moved here from Adelaide.

I'm neat and tidy and have worked a bit as a bond cleaner so Im not afraid to hook into the housework every now and then and do a big deep clean. Currently I work permanent part-time so my job is stable. I'm currently trying to improve my health too so if your looking for a fitness buddy Im your girl!

25 year old Graphic Designer - new to town and looking to move out of my current accommodation to somewhere closer to the CBD. I'm not fussy, quite social and love pets. Hit me up. Jake
Looking for a share house or someone to team up with to rent a house. Wanting to share with only 1 other person. I have 2 very well behaved medium sized dogs. I'm self-employed and work in the pet industry. I'm respectful, considerate and reliable and expect the same in return. Most areas of Townsville considered. Rent budget approx $150 including all bills.
Pretty easy going guy I am a Postgrad student, I really don't create any problems where I live and the best thing about living with me is I don't complain if I don't like a place I simply will leave at the end of my contract or won't move in. So I don't harass anyone with complaints. I would prefer to live with students or people my age approximately but I am pretty open to anyone to some degree. I am not concerned about moving in with a particular gender. I really look for a place where the people seem pretty normal, the people who I might enjoy living with, I would like a modern place if possible rather than an old house. I am thinking of sharing but if a apartment or unit is available close to my price range I would consider it because I have selected multiple locations so that might be relevant to some of interest. I'm studying to be a Business Lecturer at University so I read the Wall Street Journal and Harvard Business Review, I enjoy that and I know everyone has different interests but that is mine really. It does make me pretty busy but I am open to having a few beers every now and than but I have a habit of being a bit tedious about my studies I have to warn you in advance in case you want a party animal I probably will let you down in that area because as much as I might enjoy having some fun with the guys i do put my GPA first. I do enjoy it though and I am one of those people who enjoys what I do even if it doesn't always feel like it during peak assessment periods.
I'm Sarah, I'm currently studying at JCU aswell as studying musical theatre here in Townsville. I'm a bubbly, positive person who is rather social, however I do enjoy my own space. I have been living away from home for 2 years now so I know how to fend for myself. Message me if you're interested :)
