About The Area
Kensington is a beautiful, safe and quiet Inner City suburb, with no noise at all at night. It's very family oriented so there are lots of kids and people walking dogs etc during the day. Leafy, green and peaceful area. Shops, markets, cafes, pubs and restaurants within one or two minutes walk.

We live very close to the city, less than 5km. Two to five minutes walk to the train and tram. You can cycle to the city or Melbourne Uni in 10 minutes. Flemington race course is about a 5 to 10 minute walk from our doorstep also.

About Us
We are a couple in our late 20's who work Monday to Friday and are out and about alot. We are quiet and respectful when at home, and like to watch a movie or have a bottle of wine and a game of scrabble.

We get out on weekends, go to the gym and eat out with friends. We're pretty flexible with length of stays so just contact us to ask any questions. If you'd like to stay for a longer term, please contact us with any questions.

  • Emma and Rob were very welcoming and considerate hosts. The house was clean and comfortable and the location was super convenient!

  • It was a good experience to be at Emma and Rob's place for more than a week. The house is clean and located in one of the beautiful streets of Kensington, very close to public transport - I am not a fast walker and took me not more than seven minutes to get to the train station. You could enjoy a nice coffee or good brunch at one of the places around the station area or walk a few more metres to another street where one would find a good laksa or vietnamesse 'pho' - a great multicultural experience. Very close to the CBD.
    Emma and Rob are welcoming and willing to assist in any possible way. Check in/ out was easy and flexible.

  • Our stay in Emma and Rob's house was really a pleasure, they were very welcoming, helpful, and we enjoyed to share some drinks and meals in their garden. We couldn't have expected better hosts for our beginning in Melbourne! If their room is free, don't hesitate to ask them to stay a few days in their beautiful home!

  • Very nice time in Melbourne thanks to Emma&Rob. They have a nice house. As said, close to the tram station, and after that, very close to the CBD. A perfect place to visit Melbourne and sleep quietly.

  • It was the first experience by Airbnb, Emma and Rob were fantastic hosts ! Very welcoming and helpful. The first week in Australia was great thanks to them. There share a lot of tips of the city and the others because there are 'globe trotter'. The flat had a really good situation, 2 stops to the CBD, many restaurants and supermarket just before the train station (7 min walk). We are strongly recommended Emma and Rob !!!

  • The stay at Emma & Rob's place was great. They are very welcoming and warm.
    It was our first time to Melbourne and also first time trying BnB, and we enjoyed our time.

    The place is near to both a Tramway station and a Metro station, so we never had to use any other form of transport. It is less than 5 minutes walk to the station (either tram or train), and a 10 min ride to CBD with train or 20 min using tram which passes through common visiting areas such as Queen Victoria Market and alike. Emma also passed us 2 SVT cards to top up for public transport use so didnt have to get it ourselves.

    The room was clean and comfy. Brochures of some events and maps of the city were thoughtfully placed in the room so we could use them before going out to city. You can also ask Emma for some advice about the on-going art shows and events since she is updated about these events.

    I had a number of short chats with them too and they recommended some nice places in the city for us to visit.

    I strongly recommend Emma & Rob's place in Melbourne and will stay again when in Melbourne.

    Hope to see you guys again in our next trips and Thanks for the hospitality.

  • Magnifique séjour ! L'appartement est très bien situé, près du train (sans les nuisances du bruit) qui vous dépose au centre ville, en taxi ce n'est pas cher du tout 12AUD non plus. Nous avons été très bien reçu, notre chambre et tout l'appartement était très propre et les hôtes sont charmant et plein de bons conseils !

  • I have had a pleasant but short stay with Emma and Rob. I travelled to Melbourne to attend and event on the saturday evening, After arriving late on friday morning when I was greeted by Rob, I settled in quickly and spent the rest of the day out catching up with family. Saturday was busy and the same so did not have alot of time to chat with my hosts unfortunately.
    The house is clean and organised and was not far to walk to shops and the rail station.
    Emma and Rob are a lovely couple I envy their lifestyle, meaning I love the coffee shops and markets of Melbourne, which Emma and Rob take advantage of cycling to on the weekends.
    I thank them for their wonderful hospitality.

  • This was my first experience with airbnb and it was fantastic. I am travelling around Australia on my new book tour and I spent two weeks at Emma and Robs. Kensington is a wonderful location, quiet, but so close to the city. The house was spotless and Emma and Rob were the perfect hosts. I would stay here again in a heartbeat when I am next in Melbourne. Thanks so much Emma and Rob for the great experience. Marie.

  • Emma and Rob were great hosts! We really felt like home and very welcome. The room was comfortable, quiet and clean. The house even had a garden where we enjoyed having some of our meals. It was really fun talking to Emma and Rob, sharing travel experience and other things. We also really appreciated all the recommendations about what to do in Melbourne. We would definitely stay there again and are looking forward to see Emma and Rob in Berlin if they decide to travel there.
