About the neighbourhood - Kensington

"Inner City Delight"

A great small suburb bounded by Como, South Perth and Victoria Park. Just a walk away from cafe strips and the Swan River it is great for people who like to live an easy lifestyle or families with kids. With great City views and close for people working in the city you will be sure to love it!

Kensington- Hidden Gem"

A small inner city suburb that won't take anymore than 10 minutes to get anywhere! It is safe and wealthy yet affordable too! Friendly community and great facilities make it one of the best suburbs in Perth.

"So close to everything"

I have lived in Kensington for 10 years on and off and love the area, everything is so close, shops, good restaurants and take away places. My kids both went to Kensington Primary, great school we also have a pre-primary. Lots of young families and a nice park with a play ground. Ideal area for young executive couple, the city is only 5 mins by car and public transport is easily. The freeway also 5 mins to go either north or south.

Not Convinced?

Just send us an email and we will do our best!

Good luck and enjoy your holiday in Amazing Western Australia!

What looks small is not small

  • 4 of 5

Everything you need in this cottage, good location, close to a few shops and take aways for ease. Close to the city of Perth. Can bring my dog. Stayed a couple of times now. I think the cleaning cost would be better in the advertised price rather than seperate expense, to give ture cost of stay. Single beds a little uncomfortable for adults. Overall a good stay.

Hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I, along with our two kids (aged 2 & 4) as well as our dog, stayed here with ample room for us. Clean linen & home. Nice and central, super close to convenience stores, etc. Felt very safe. Only issue, is the advertisement was a bit ambiguous regarding amount of people staying & an added cost for extra people.

Will gladly return, host was super helpful, friendly & readily available via sms/phone.

Thank you so much for allowing us to stay.
