Kensington C & C is a renovated and extended 1883 workers cottage. Located in an inner suburb it is ideally positioned for visitors to Melbourne for both work and pleasure The Kensington station is just a 2 minute walk away and trains operate to and from the city (2 stops) every 10 minutes during peak hours and every 20 minutes at other times from early morning until around midnight. We offer self-managed accommodation, allowing us to share our Melbourne home with you whilst you enjoy your Melbourne visit. In nearby Kensington Village cafes and restaurants offer a wide variety of gourmet meals from breakfast though to dinner. Alternatively, you can choose the in-house breakfast supplies or use the kitchen facilities or barbecue.

We like the concept of ‘self-managed’ accommodation that is ‘close to the action’ yet private, personal and a bit quirky. So prepare yourself for a stay that will have you relaxed and excited from the moment you arrive.

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
