11/25/10 05:21 pm - jeski - Looking to rent in Sydney's inner west :)

Hi :) My name is Jess and I am a single mum to my three year old daughter, Pandora. I am currently living in Canberra but need to leave asap.

I'm looking for a two bedroom home to rent in Sydney's inner west. I have an excellent rental history and can spend up to $400/week in rent, though I would prefer around the $350/week mark. My income comes from my single parent pension (altogether around $550/week), a $200/week allowance from my mother (currently living in the UK, she can be contacted at annette.freeman56@gmail.com if you wish to confirm this arrangement) as well as money I earn from my online jewellery business and casual babysitting. I have a lot of savings and can pay for 1-2 month's rent in advance on top of bond if necessary.

I am looking for a place which has two bedrooms, a bath (a must for my daughter) and spacious enough to hold all my furniture (ideally including an internal laundry as I have my own washer & dryer). I'm also willing to consider sharing a place with another single mum or child-friendly female. Ideally said housemate would be a little unconventional, like me - goths and geeks welcome, heh. Child-friendly is a must, and you'd need to have a stable income.

I would love to find a place around the Newtown/Enmore/Marrickville/Dulwich Hill area. I have my own car but a car space is not necessary as long as there is street parking available.

We have a very sweet, quiet indoor cat called Tabitha who is litter trained and very clean.

Please contact me asap if you have a place that might be suitable for us!

1/1/07 08:33 am - tjgoldstein - Housemates Urgently Wanted!!

Needing 2 x housemates in Mount Waverley... preferably one female and one male :)

Both my current housemates are on the move; one overseas and the other is moving in with her partner. This is a gay/transgender friendly household with a very shy resident cat. I am a 36 year old female who works and does part time study. I'm a pretty quiet person except when playing World of Warcraft ;) I'm an avid reader and love going to the movies.

The house features two living areas, seperate laundry, bathroom with full bath, lockup garage, room for two cars in driveway, dishwasher, fridge and the front living area is fully furnished. Unfortunately, no freezer or tv or dvd player... they would be most welcome! :) Backyard is massive, suitable for someone wanted to start a veggie patch, also paved area for outdoors entertaining. However, no dogs thank you.

Rent is $435 per month with $250 bond upfront. Bills are split between all three housemates and internet access is available for an extra $25 per month. Both rooms are available around start of month but successful applicant can start moving in once bond/first months rent is paid. It`s a 5 minute walk to Pinewood Shops, 5 minute drive to The Glen and Brandon Park shopping centres, 5 minutes drive to Glen Waverley, Mount Waverly and Syndal train stations and very close to both Monash and Deakin Uni`s.

Rooms on offer are...

1 x smaller bedroom with built in mirrored robe (full wall), ducted heating grill, over head fan/light, wall to wall carpets.

1 x larger bedroom with wall to wall carpet, ducted heating grill and one stand alone robe... this opens up onto the second larger unfurnished living area.

Seeking a sharehouse - or others also seeking, to split a new lease with - in Brisbane's southwest suburbs - eg Indooroopilly, Toowong, etc. Anywhere between Toowong and "Inala Waters" aka Forest Lake would be fine, so I'm close to the areas in which I work.

Can pay a max share of $150pw, preferably including bills/food - can go slightly higher for such inclusions, though.

I'd require space for creative endeavours - painting, woodcarving, possibly theatre rehearsal, and, ideally, be close to shops/a main road in order to set up a small but highly visible home gallery.

I'm also seeking cat-friendly space that doesn't currently have a cat in residence - I've a gorgeous girl who's generally fine round humans, but doesn't play well with other kitties.

Yard space for a chook enclosure would also be great.

If all (or any) of that sounds like something you think you could help with, please get in touch by responding here, or emailing hermes.kemp@gmail.com

Am hoping to have found and be settling in somewhere by the time my current house-sit ends on august 31, or thereabouts. Cheers!

3/30/10 08:35 pm - tjgoldstein - Mount Waverley Room for Rent!! ASAP!!

Hi, our names are Tj and Marz and we are two girls looking for a third housemate, preferably a guy as we feel two girls and a guy is a nice balance to the house. We are 36 and 34 respectively and have shared a house for around 7 years. Marz works full time while tj does part time study/work.

Someone who is studying full time/full time employment or doing part time work/study, from the age of 25 onwards or a responsible younger person, is capable of pulling their weight when it comes to cleaning and who likes a laugh. Also, anyone who has a fridge or a separate freezer would be most welcome! This is a quiet household so anyone looking to party every week need not apply but we are certainly up for the occasional party! Additionally, we are a gay/transgender friendly household.

There is one bedroom available. It has a full wall of inbuilt wardrobes with full length mirrors on the doors, absolutely massive wardrobe space - probably more than you will need!, a ceiling fan/light and a ducted heating grate. There is also a window that can be fully opened for fresh air and venetian vertical blinds covering this while the room is fully carpeted. The room can hold a double bed, desk, chair and a small bookcase.

We share a bathroom between 3 people and it works well as everyone is usually on different schedules so there are very few overlaps. Same with the kitchen. There is a large lounge area, fully furnished with big screen tv, sofa's, bookcases and coffeetables. There is room in here to place an additional bookcase if you need to. We have two turtles and a very very shy cat so while a cat lover is not neccessary, someone who can tolerate a cat would be great :)

The house is situated 2 minutes walk from Pinewood Shops in Mount Waverley and is 5 mins drive to The Glen Shopping Centre, 10 mins to Brandon Park shopping centre, 5 mins drive to Glen Waverley train station or Mount Waverley station. Also only 10 mins drive to Monash Uni, about 15-20 mins drive to Deakin Uni and around 30 mins drive to the City. The house location is simply brilliant for students!

The monthly rent is paid on the 10th and is $415 per person and as such, we will be asking for one months rent in advance and a bond of $300. We split the bills as equal thirds as they come in.

The house is available from around the 10th of April so please, don't hesitate to contact tj via email on tjgoldstein@yahoo.com.au so that you can come and inspect our house. Otherwise, pls text tj on 0403807007 - text only as quite deaf and wont hear the phone ring.

We look forward to meeting you. :)
