3/22/09 01:04 am - tjgoldstein - Looking for Housemate in Mount Waverley

Hi there,

My housemate and myself are looking for a new housemate to take up the third bedroom as our male housemate is moving out into another share house in a few weeks.

The house is in Mount Waverley and extremely close to all amenities. It is only 5 minutes walk to Pinewood Shopping Centre, 10 minute bus ride/drive to Monash University, 15-20 minutes bus ride, drive or tram to Deakin University and the city is only a 35 minute ride on either bus, tram or drive. Glen Waverley itself is only 7-8 minutes drive while Chadstone Shopping Centre is only 10 minutes. The house is in a perfect location to get to pretty much anywhere.

It has 3 bedrooms, lounge, huge kitchen, full bathroom/tiolet, massive backyard and plenty of room to park a third car in the driveway. The house has ducted heating throughout , including the bedrooms, and ceiling fans in the bedrooms for summer. The loungeroom is quite large and is th centre of the house. The room up for rent has a vast amount of storage, consisting of a full wall of inbuilt cupboards (3 sliding mirrored doors) and the room itself will hold a queen sized bed and a full sized desk, although, it may be a little squashy  so a double bed would fit much better. The room is *not* suited to couples.

We have 2 turtles and one cat, but while there may be a cat in the house, you will never see it as it is very shy with strangers and will never enter your room. :)

The rent is $397 per person, per month, payable on the 10th of each month,  and there is also broadband internet available for an extra $25 per month, payable at same time of rent.  Bills are of course extra. Despite the location, the rent for this property is extremely cheap.

Marz and myself (tj) are very friendly girls who would welcome a student or full time worker into the house. It is a fairly quiet household as neither of us are into wild parties but we both enjoy having friends over for drinks and dinner every now and again. This is a gay friendly household and we are accepting of all lifestyles.

If you are interested in taking a look around, please do not hesiste to drop me a note on tjgoldstein@yahoo.com.au

Thank you :)

12/12/08 04:48 pm - gemfyre - Seeking a rental in Perth - we need to move before New Year's!

We just got our 6th knockback and I'm now trying anything.

We're a couple, both working full time seeking a house with either 3 bedrooms or 2 bedrooms and large living areas. Around the $350 per week mark. Preferably north of the river, as near to Osborne Park and Floreat as possible (but we are willing to look further out). We have two cats who are completely non-destructive and if they make a mess, I clean it up ASAP, so no harm done to your house. Seeking a 12 month lease.

Anyone have what we're looking for?
