Darren's home on Kensingston Street was a great place to end our California Adventure. My husband, 5 year-old daughter and I stayed here for 6 nights in October. The home had everything we needed for an extended stay (including beach chairs and umbrella, lots of extra towels and a washer and dryer) and was immaculately clean. The back patio was a wonderful space for at home meals. The pictures very accurately reflect the reality of the interior space as well. There was lots of room, and could easily accommodate a larger group than ours. The neighbourhood is great - a Starbucks and several restaurants right around the corner, and several nearby playgrounds for little ones. We ate at several of the restaurants (Kensingston Grill, Kensington Cafe and the Burger Lounge), and they were all great. We also ordered pizza from a place a bit further up the road - Zia Gourmet Pizza on Adams St - which was fantastic. The home, although on a quiet residential street, also has very easy access to the highway and it takes no time to get to any of the major San Diego attractions. Finally, Darren was fantastic. There is plenty of information at the house on nearby attractions, and he brought us some additional information our first morning there. He even drove us to the airport for our extremely early flight when we left and credited the damage deposit before we had even arrived home. Warnings: (1) the plumbing is a little iffy, but this was only a minor inconvenience; (2) there is no air conditioning, but there are lots of ceiling fans; and (3) you won't want to leave.
