Kensington retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful home for a family rental. The backyard was a perfect retreat. The house was immaculate and the location was ideal. The neighborhood was very safe and the parking was perfect. It was in walking distance to several eateries and easy freeway access. The homeowners are fantastic and made sure everything was very welcoming. We highly recommend staying here.

Charming place, 10 minutes away from the Convention Center and the Gaslight Quarters

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for an entire week for the 2014 SDCC, and we loved the warmth and cozy atmosphere the place has. Great spacious kitchen, and the patio with the BBQ is a treat for everyone.

We where in total 4 adults and we slept well in comfortable beds.

Wonderful home, wonderful owners and you can't beat the neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 rented this home over Thanksgiving holiday to be close to relatives in the Kensington area. This home greatly exceeded our expectations! My husband and I shared the master bedroom, my 10 and 17 y.o. the trundle bed, and my 19 y.o. had the futon in the office to himself. The home is immaculate and extremely comfortable. While exuding the charm of a 1928 Spanish bungalow, the updated bathrooms and kitchen had every modern convenience (high end appliances and granite countertops in the spacious kitchen). The owner of the property is incredibly thoughtful and has paid great attention to every detail insuring that her guest have the most comfortable stay possible. I highly recommend this property and the Kensington area - great neighborhood to walk around in, fun cafes several blocks away, and close to everything in the San Diego area!

Wonderful, relaxing 10 days in San Diego's Kensington neighbourhood

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 adults and one child enjoyed a wonderful vacation at this vacation rental. Everything we needed was found in the home including a central location to attractions and highway access to all points. We have travelled extensively and stayed in many VRBOs but have truly not experienced the hospitality and attention to detail to a degree that we found here. We loved starting the days drinking our coffee in the bougainvillea-filled back garden watching the hummingbirds. The neighborhood and it's restaurants are not to be missed and made a nice change from eating in the real tourist areas. San Diego is one of our favorite places to be and this home made the stay even more special. Thank you, marie-france.
