We discovered this fabulous inner Melbourne suburb in 2000 when we bought 97 McConnell Street, falling in love with the area as we set about the major renovation of our 1882 weatherboard workers’ cottage.
Being country people we felt at home in the ‘small town’ atmosphere created by the friendly locals and shopkeepers, heritage protected streetscapes and a strong sense of community.
We have two homes in Kensington giving you flexibility to choose between 97 McConnell St, a more traditional B&B, where you have a room in our home, or Kensington C&C at 112 McConnell St which is available as a whole house rental for both short and longer term stays.

Getting There :Arriving at Melbourne International Airport, a taxi is the easiest way to Kensington. Alternatively the airport Skybus to Southern Cross Station, then a taxi or train on the Craigburne line to Kensington and a short walk to No. 97 or 112
By car, McConnell St is just off the Melbourne City Link Flemington Road exit, or from the west the Ballarat/Geelong Road.
