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!

Comfortable Property To Stay In

  • 4 of 5

Although a bit old, we had a good comfortable 3 nights stay. Internet reception was good. Self-contained facilities provided for was excellent. However, it could have been better to have a clothes dryer as well. For the price it was well-worth it!

Perfect for your needs

  • 4 of 5

We recently stayed for 5 nights departing 24 Jan on first glance I thought it was very small , however was just fine for myself, partner and 2 boys aged 12 & 10. Great communication from owner we arrived very late after holiday in Bali and everything was welcoming and easy so late at night. Fully equip with everything you need. The whole 20 steps it takes to walk to Deli or small IGA is perfect! we quikly got essentials for breakfast etc. nice touch to have coffee, tea and some essentials already there. my boys (being from far north of WA) loved the passionfruit and grape vines pity not ripe yet. both bedrooms are perfect. small living room and kitchen all you need. nice modern bathroom and facilities. I really like the abundance of info left at unit, nice touch, info ob everything in unit and including bus, train and shop info - thank you
