Kensington accommodation

Kensington is six kilometres south-east of Sydney and is a New South Wales prime sporting and learning area as it's placed immediately south of the Sydney Football Stadium and the Sydney Cricket Ground, west of the Randwick Racecourse and the home of the Australian Golf Club, University of New South Wales and National Institute of Dramatic Arts. All of these nearby attractions make Kensington a very handy place to choose for your Sydney accommodation when you make your visit to the New South Wales capital.

Moore Park Kensington

Moore Park Kensington is where you'll find two of Sydney's biggest sporting stadiums, the Sydney Cricket Ground and the Sydney Football Stadium:

The Sydney Cricket Ground is the main ground in NSW for Cricket and Australian Football League (AFL) games. It was first opened in 1886 and has grown over the years till it can now cater for crowds of up to 46,000 people. It was also the main ground for Rugby League games until the construction of the Sydney Football Stadium in 1988.

The Sydney Football Stadium is the city's main rugby league venue but it's also used for rugby union and soccer games

Randwick Is More Than A Race Course

The Randwick Racecourse is one of Australia's top horse racing venues but it's also often used for large outdoor concerts and religious events. Pope Paul VI celebrated mass there in 1970, as did Pope John Paul II in 1995 when the Beatification of Saint Mary MacKillop took place.

The Exclusive Australian Golf Club

One of the most exclusive golf clubs in Australia is found at Kensington and that's the Australian Golf Club. It's grass courses are perfectly manicured and its water hazards give golfers of all levels of achievement considerable challenges all the way to the 18th hole.

Top Educational And Learning Establishments At Kensington

Kensington accommodation is always in demand because of the sporting and educational facilities in the district as well as it being so near Sydney itself. The are two biggest learning establishments, these are:

The University of New South Wales (UNSW). This is primarily a research-based university and one of the top universities in Australia. It's also one of the world universities that founded Universitas 21, a global network of research institutions.

The National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA). This is a major training centre for students of television, film and theatre. Admission to NIDA is very hard with only one successful applicant from every hundred who apply.

Kensington Is An Ideal Place To Stay For Sports Fans And Academics

Kensington holiday rentals are an ideal place for you to stay when visiting the learning establishments of the Institute of Dramatic Arts or the University of New South Wales. They offer comfortable living and independence with a feeling of being at home that you can never expect to get in hotel or motel accommodation.

So, overall my stay here was lovely. The loft is fantastic and very spacious and very open (agree with other reviews that this is best for a couple or travelers who are comfy with no privacy). The location cannot be beat and the pictures don't quite do the space justice when it comes to how extensively large it is. However, I would be remiss to not warn other travelers to be sure and note that this unit has NO central air conditioning and you should be very aware of that when making your booking choice, especially during summer months. I lucked out with my travel that Sydney experienced a cool front right after my arrival and throughout my stay (I was there during the summer), but if the cool front had not come through I'm not sure I would have been able to stay here as I would have not been able to sleep. I was not misled as it does not advertise having air conditioning, but I think I mistakenly assumed that it would, which was almost very problematic. What this means is that you absolutely must have the windows open in order to be comfortable and the air temperature must be acceptable for you. Light sleepers might not like this either as there was some road construction going on during my stay and when they started working, needless to say I could hear it. Again, these things didn't bother me, but travelers should go in with their eyes wide open in my opinion. Also, the building has no lift and this unit is on the 4th floor so travelers should be aware of that as well. These all turned out NOT to be issues for me and my stay was lovely, but they should definitely be taken into account when making your booking choice. If these are not concerns for you, then I can highly highly recommend this place for a great stay in Sydney. It's unique, charming, great location, and good value for what you get. A truly great vacation rental experience.
