Looking for a comfortable and relaxing place walking/bus/biking distance to La Trobe University as I will be beginning my studies for Bachelor of Nursing/Midwifery. I am mature, clean and respectful. I am wanting to find a place where I can feel at home and potentially make new friends. I enjoy exploring, red wine, board games and the occasional boogie on a weekend. Would love to find a housemate who could show me around Melbourne to all the great bars and restaurants!
We're from Brazil, Elisa (35) and Natacha (31). We study and work most of the time. Elisa studies Horticulture and I'm study Project Management. Easy-going, friendly, open-minded, clean and enjoy make gardens.
I'm a relaxed and tidy individual; enjoy my space but also enjoy co-working, sharing meals or just hanging out. I sometimes like to go to gigs too. I play guitar and bass and have a few musical projects on the go at any time and sometimes I go busking in the CBD. I work part time as a bartender at the Melbourne Recital Centre and am halfway through a Psychology Post-Grad. I really enjoy gardening, reading, cooking and listening to music in my spare time when I'm not playing. I live a humble existence and am always open to learning new things. I have a lil cat named Pepper who would ideally be moving with me.
Hi, I'm a student about to go into my second year of my bachelor of fine arts. As a housemate I'm generally very quiet and clean, but love cooking (not just for myself but for others). I'm very quiet during the week and spend a lot of time reading books or watching films, but I love to catch up during the weekends and socialise. :) I'm a vegetarian but have lived with both meat eaters and vegans so other peoples' food choices don't bother me! Also, I come with many houseplants. I'd love to live with other people involved in the arts, or other students but this isn't a necessity!
*****URGENT***** Hey there! We're a really fun couple who are interested in living in a clean and tidy space with some like-minded and social people. We will be respectful of the home and respectful of the house/flatmates privacy. We are really outgoing and love to laugh!! We enjoy socialising and meeting new people. It would be awesome if we could find some people who would like to share a meal and a drink with sometimes : ) We are both 26 years old and from Bristol in the UK. We have recently moved to Melbourne and are excited to see what is has to offer! Tommy is currently working in removals but seeking employment in construction. He loves Music and likes to play guitar, although has yet to buy one here! Lu works in hospitality, is in to nutrition and loves to cook and generally talk about food!! She also loves socialising with a glass of wine! We both enjoy cycling and would say we are pretty chilled out people : ) **** We are looking to move in ASAP, we have been staying on a sofa bed (with thanks to Lu's cousin) since arriving in Melbourne 5 weeks ago so are desperate for our own room and somewhere to call home : ) - Contact us if you think you would like to meet us and arrange a viewing and have somewhere available that fits our description- Many Thanks!! ****
Working full-time at Collingwood atm. Going to be RMIT nursing student in July 2017. I am a clean, cheerful, considerate, respectful person who cares about the privacy of others. I have been living by myself for 7 years, so I am independent and is a type that will "clean my own mess". I love dogs! I like cooking, swimming and watching movies. I am not a party animal, but a drink or chat is great. I am looking for a place where has air-con(must!), windows(must!), near tram/train station, tidy, clean, and comfortable to live. I don't mind doing housework on a schedule/roaster basis.
Hi! My name is Miki and I am from Tokyo, currently on a working holiday visa. I started living in shared housing in university and have never stopped since! I have lived in university dorms, shared flats, and most recently a 30 person share house in Tokyo. I've really enjoyed the balance of having a room to myself while always having the option to talk to someone after a long day, instead of just coming home to an empty apartment. I enjoy hiking and other outdoor pursuits, baking, playing cards and board games, and finding fun things to do around the city (especially if they are free!).
Hi, my name is Dave, and I am looking for a studio, 1 bedroom apartmment, granny flat long term (12 mths or more). I am 35 yrs old, work in Pascoe Vale for a medical company. During the week I tend to stay at home apart from thursday nights for cricket training. If I do go out on a weekend I do not bring the party home. Happy to meet up for coffee so you I can ask a few questions, as I'm sure you'd like to ask me some. Cheers
I'm a 35yo freelancer writer/journalist who gets to work from home every Monday, which is probably my dream job I reckon. I also work part-time Tuesday to Friday in a media communications role for a large international non-government org, which is another dream job actually. So kicking goals. To complete the picture, I'm on the hunt for a great place to call home in Thornbury area or surrounding suburbs which can accommodate me and my four-year-old cat, who is probably the most beautiful ragdoll you've ever seen. Ragdolls as a breed are quite unique as far as cats go - they are very fond of humans, incredibly placid and affectionate, non-arrogant, relaxed animals - a bit more like a (super chilled out) dog in the way they like humans in fact. I’ve had housemates who say initially they're not fond of cats completely change their tune after living with him- to the point they would consider getting a cat like him! In short, he's a great addition to a household. Clean, litter trained and all that. He also loves the outdoors, so I'm looking for somewhere with a backyard. I'm definitely the less chilled out of the two of us (what with the journalism and deadlines and all) so to balance it out I'm often busy weekday evenings with dance classes (doubles as my main form of fitness these days) in the evenings and regular catch ups with friends. I've got plenty of close friends in the area, so I'd be hoping to find somewhere that can comfortably accommodate me having the odd night on the couch with some wine and my girlfriends (read: supremely talented women and completely amazing humans). I've lived in rental share houses (and with complete strangers) all my adult life and I’m an excellent housemate, I just know how it works. My current living situation is also pretty cosy, I'm living in a private rental (my landlord is seriously amazing) near Fairfield with four others who all get along, it's a beautiful big house and I'll be sad to leave. Happy in a share house where everyone functions fairly independently of each other, but still likes catching up every now and then. If any of this sounds like a good fit, get in touch!
Hi guys I'm looking for a room to rent in the north, preferably near the tram 86 line as I'm a media studies student at RMIT. I'm a non smoker, non drinker, full time student. Im quiet, easy going, down to earth and easy to get along with. I get along with everyone. I'm friendly with a good sense of humor. My idea of fun is going to uni and study. I am very much into fitness, I play netball and always exercising jogging or swimming in my spare time. Also enjoy going to the movie's. Shopping, going out for dinner/lunch at restaurants and cafes, going away, and meeting new people.
I'm Conni, a 24 year old geology/environmental studies postgraduate student at melbourne university. I've had experience living with all sort of different people in Germany as well as London so I know how things are workingin a great shared house ;) I'm from Germany and I will stay for one year. I am creative, crazy, very thoughtful and very fun to hang out with and I like a good laugh. I have probably read about 5000 books but you will get the biggest nonsense out of me (you don't even have to try very hard). I like to play a bit on my Ukulele and I love all kind of arts, individuality and people who do things their way! I'm kind of nerdy when it comes to Geology and Arts and books. But always easy to get along with and interested in all sort of stuff - especially people and music. When I manage to do some outdoor activity I am really excited about it! That includes skiing, climbing, hiking, ... travelling too. If nature is to far away, I try to ignore that by doing a lot of work out in a park/beach/playground/... I'm a vegeterian and I like to keep kitchen and bathroom clean.
I am a professional musician. Just completed my Bachelor of Music. I play Sax and Harmonica. I am touring Europe in June for a month. Need to rehearse in Brunswick for the tour. Often away on weekends for festivals. Very considerate housemate. Love to cook and then clean. Very able to look after myself. Friendly but respect others privacy and able to behave myself.
I solo travelled all last year around Europe and Morocco and now i've come back home to live, work and study Spanish, in hopes that I can travel back to Spain at the end of the year. I love sharing a house with others, you get a nice community feeling which is something I really miss from travelling. I've been told i'm warm natured, mature minded with a natural sense of empathy and I'm often known for my smile. I've lived in shared situations before and believe that I'm tidy and extremely respectful of other people's space. My preferred housemate is someone I can enjoy a meal with occasionally and talk to every now and again. Although I enjoy a good conversation I also can be introverted and like spending time with myself reading, creating or just relaxing in the garden.
Hi I'm Romany. I'm 25 (but very mature for my age - not to sound wanky) and studying screen and media production at RMIT. My main interests are film (hence film school) and music so I tend to spend a lot of time at the cinema and gigs around Melbourne. But I'm also really into health and sustainable living, travel, drinking tea and chilling out and contemplating the world. I also love animals and have been a vegetarian since I was 14. I'm looking for a more mature and respectful sharehouse, as I tend to prefer relaxing and watching a bit of Netflix with a nice dinner over partying every weekend. I've lived in sharehouses for the last 6 years so I'm very used to how things go when it comes to shared living. I'm a fairly social person, so prefer living in a 'home' rather than just a place that people eat and sleep. I love the community feel of a sharehouse and chilling with housemates when the mood strikes, but also very respectful of the fact that everybody needs their independent/alone time, especially when things get busy with uni and work. I'm clean and tidy and can bring with me a gorgeous old 70s style three seater couch, plus a TV and DVD collection. I also ran my previous sharehouse for 18 months so I'm almost pathologically punctual when it comes to paying rent and bills on time. I'm not in a rush to find a new place, so above all I'm looking for a place that feels like the right fit. Send me a message if you think we might get along!
Vibrant Canadian Chef couple with hearts made of gold. We are quiet organized people but we know how to cut loose once and while. We keep to ourselves during work week but love to share a laugh and cook for friends when we are off work. We need immediate lodgings and very lovely people. Choose us!
Hey my name is Kaleb, I'm 19 years old and I have been living in Australia for a year now. I'm originally from New Zealand and also work full-time as a forklift driver. I love playing video games and love playing sports especially Soccer willing to try anything. I also like meeting new people so going out for a night with the group would be awesome. Why I'm great to live with is I'm reasonble, understanding, will always pay rent on time, I'm tidy, love to socialise and to be honest I'm just looking for a place where I can chill and have a good time.
I am a 26 year old English teacher. I work full time, and am a clean and considerate housemate. I love to cook, garden and read. I am also into film and music. I like hanging out and sharing a meal or a drink but am quite happy to do my own thing as well. Looking for a chill house with likeminded people.
Im from Perth but have been living in Melbourne a few years. I'm a gardener. I have a small business I run around local suburbs. I can keep the front and backyard looking good, no need to hire lawn mower man or gardeners before rent inspections! I'm also a bit of a musician in my spare time. I can cook but prefer not to after a long day... but I do make pretty good chilli con carne 😉

I'm a pretty friendly guy, and I love a good chat with fellow housemates. I also know when people need their space. I'm a professional graphic designer and a newly made gym lover, so I get on with artistic and sporty people alike. I love Italian and Japanese food. I'm looking for a place for 1 year or more.
Hello future house mates, I'm Phil 29 from Sydney, I'm looking for a more permanent place to call home with some rad people! Things i enjoy.... boardgames/card games (backgammon), music>gigs, i play baseball here which keeps me pretty busy outside of work, bike rides, cooking and of course hanging out with friends. I'm well travelled and have lived out of home for a long time now, I'm super chilled and tidy! I'm pretty independent and i do have a sound group of friends in Melbourne, i just need somewhere to call home! would love to hear from you! :)
Hello - looking for a social, eco inclined, likeminded household to join. Preferably with a nice garden I could contribute to. Originally from Sydney I've been in Melb for a bit over 7 years. I've settled into a nice circle of friends and community and feel like a naturalised creature of the inner north. I'm sociable, enjoy passing time with new and amusing people, but I am also pretty independent and am happy doing my own thing too. I love music. Both listening and playing a bit of guitar (generally along a folk/indie/country vibe) - more for therapeutic reasons than seriously. Cycling is a passion. I commute by bike but also like to disappear for hours on rides out in the hills. I also play soccer regularly. I try to have a creative projects going although at the moment it doesn't seem to much more than the compiling of lists, such are the demands of wage slavery. I'm also on a bit of a reading bender at the moment. I'm a keen gardener and at a minimum I'm worm farming with kitchen scraps and herb growing. I also come with a dwarf lemon tree, a kumquat tree and a bay tree. I cook a lot. And I love eating food. I manage my own fodder but I'm happy to fling a meal out to an unmotivated or tired fellow human from time to time. I consider myself a Veganesque-Garbagitarian - meaning, I don't intentionally eat animal things but am pretty relaxed about it, and don't like to waste. I don't care what others eat. I have minimalist and frugal living inclinations, aiming to produce rather than just consume. Left leaning too, if that isn't already obvious. None of this should really impact on you - but it might be interesting to know. I do like to watch occasional television series, but tend to hide in bed with a laptop and binge when I do A house with the telly on nonstop would be a real drag. A drink? Every now and then? Don't mind if I do. But not suckling from a goon bag or passing out anymore. I'm an animal lover - so would be happy to become pals with your animals if you have any. In the past I've been friends with a Goldfish, a German Shepard, and 3 female rats (sisters). No pets now sadly. I've recently downsized all my things so have few items of furniture. However I have a keen and patient eye for vintage and tasteful ebay bargains so could help with furnishings over time. I clean up common areas like bathrooms and kitchens as I use them, so they are nice for the next person - and would prefer to live with others who have the same approach. I have lived alone in the past and during that time it was fun to see how many dishes you could stack into the sink before washing - but thankfully when share housing I'm far more civilised. I love dishwashers. I like to think that they love me back I am looking for mature, responsible and fun social peeps to live with. Social but also independent. Clean and tidy, and considerate. Intelligent chit chats, viewing the world with a critical and compassionate eye. Eco aware. A good sense of humour would be ideal. I think this possibly describes what everyone is looking for? I'm also looking for a quieter abode to be able to have a rest from the world, rather than a party house. I currently work as lawyer/policy person for a not-for-profit in the media sector, although I'm shortly going to be freelance. I have other income producing projects so paying rent and bills will never be a problem, but while I'm currently a 9-5-er, I won't be for much longer and would like to work from home occasionally. I hope the thumbnail sketch above of where i'm at and what my interests and motivations are may give you some idea of who I'm looking to live with. Thanks for taking the time to read my profile.
Hi! I'm french but I actually live in Spain for 8 years now. I'm working on a PhD in Political Studies and as a french teacher as well. I'm coming to Melbourne to study at La Trobe University and to conduct some of my PhD fieldwork. I've shared flats since I was 18 and I enjoy to have a good chat and laugh with nice and interesting people, but I also like to have my own space to study or listen music. I'm not really into sports but I love music (to play and listen), movies and books. I really love pets (both cats and dogs) but I don't have one of my own.
Hi Guys, Did you know I am good pals with the local (Fitzroy) bottle shop and can often get a dollar off every wine? Other than enjoying a great priced vino, I live my days leading the way in education (or trying my very best) and having a good laugh. I am a creature of habit and usually spend weekdays working hard and trying to maintain some kind of fitness. I like a clean and tidy home and like to live an environmentally conscious life. The weekends I like live music, coffee and hanging with my pals. Thanks for reading and hopefully hear from you soon. Elise :) P.S I am an animal lover, especially doggos!
Heya I have a spare bedroom that's up for grabs in a two bedroom flat in Thornbury. The flat is like a 5 minute walk to High St where there are plenty of cafes, gyms, restaurants, bars and everything else. We are also across the road from KFC, Subway and the cheesecake shop which makes being hungover a million times better haha The flat is fully furnish (except for your room), but if you have any kitchen ware or furniture or anything else that you wanted to bring I am happy to work with that! As for your room; it comes unfurnished however I do have a spare bed in there I am wanting to sell, so if you need one we can sort something out :) It has a BIR and a massive window that gets amazing sun in the afternoon. The rent includes water however internet and electricity will be split evenly as they come in. Internet is $60 a month and electricity is never anything crazy.
Interested in either a room available in a sharehouse or starting a new sharehouse with others on flatmates Recently moved back from Canberra after working full time up there for a year. Back in Melbourne now permanently working full time in the city. Have lived in a sharehouse environment for over 2 years and really love it, made some awesome friends out of it. Really enjoy living in a house with 3-4 people and the social aspect of it and the community feel rather than living in a one bedroom flat. I believe I am: • Easy going and friendly • Clean and tidy • Considerate and polite • Timely with bills and jobs • Love being social but also not overboard Some of interest include: • Getting to live music and local gigs • Love playing the guitar (usually not plugged in so don’t worry about the noise) • Love a beer on the weekend • Pretty interested in world events and love a good vice doco • Running, going for a bike ride and footy A plus to all this is as I have lived out of home for while I have basically everything that is needed to a furnish a house including • Washing machine • Clothes dryer • Fridge • Coffee table • Dining table and three chairs • Tv and TV cabinet • Few bookcases for pots and pans/storage • many pots, pans, knife, chopping boards and basically every cooking utensil you could think of • iron and ironing board • toaster, sandwich press, kettle, blender • portable evaporative cooler As I have all this stuff I am either looking for a room that is up for grabs in a sharehouse (can easily store this stuff elsewhere if its not needed). Or alternatively quite open to starting a new sharehouse with 2-3 other people in any of the areas I have listed above and putting all this stuff to go use. Feel free to send any messages, questions or queries. Cheers :D
I'm Emily, moving interstate for work. Friendly, considerate and clean. I'm quite independant but wouldn't mind to share dinner and a wine with the roomies :)
David and I are a friendly easy going couple from Liverpool, England. Looking for somewere to stay in Melbourne for a month or so. I work as a barista and David is labouring. We are clean and tidy, I love to cook.
My name is Bianca, I am a 28 year old PE teacher. I like watching sport and currently play AFL for a local team. I have previously lived overseas and enjoy travelling at least once a year. On weekends I usually catch up with friends for dinner and a few drinks. I am a clean, quiet and reliable person to live with who enjoys sharing meals when it works out. I look forward to hearing from you soon if you think I would be a fit. :)
Hey, I am a soon-to-be 25 year old Berliner studying cultural heritage at Deakin. So I am looking for a new home in Melbourne for the next six months (End of Feb./March until the end of August, ideally)! I have been living in shared living situations continuously since I moved out from home at 18, so I have plenty of experience with day-to-day flatshare operations. I am happy to spend communal time, am responsible, tidy and clean up after myself, enjoy cooking big meals, wine/beer and a chat, and absolutely respect when people need time for themselves (I do too!) I love art, visual culture, a good dance, reading, painting and drawing, trying to live green and sustainably, exploring and discovering new spaces, places and people. I am easy enough to get along with (if I do say so myself ;) ), am open and laid back. Although I do have a hard time communicating before a morning cup of coffee - you have been warned. I hope I sound like someone you would like to share a home with, and I look forward to hearing from you! I will be free to come round for a visit from the 23rd of Feb onwards, and interested in finding a place ASAP!
