The idea for WeekDay Space was born when one of the Creators of the site listened to an audio book (on a long commute). It told the story of a young woman in London who took in a Monday-to-Friday lodger; for some company and to help pay her mortgage. Captured by the idea, she recalled her own long commutes for work from the Sunshine Coast to Brisbane, after moving for a “sea change”. She wished there had been a Monday-to-Friday room she could have booked on a regular basis rather than expensive night-by-night options.

WeekDay Space is about connecting people with a home away from home Monday to Friday. People on short term contracts, on secondment, studying, starting new jobs or with long daily commutes.

As creators of WeekDay Space, we have lived in major cities including London, Sydney and Brisbane. We have experienced the fun and tribulations of sharing, managing a mortgage and adjusting to a sea change or two. And have learned that having the right company and place to lay your head can make the world of difference… together with a nice glass of red at the end of a long day!

The values that underpin WeekDay Space are flexibility, savvy and integrity.

  • Flexibility – to enjoy the best of both worlds
  • Savvy – making/saving money to improve your future
  • Integrity – only high quality listings and connections

We call Brisbane and Sydney home but look forward to launching WeekDay Space across the nation – so watch this space! We are committed to providing a dynamic, responsive, easy-to-use, web-based service, dedicated to making people’s weekdays better.

So, if you have ideas about how we can do this better, please contact us.
