This bungalow was as charming and perfect in person as it was in the pictures. It is conveniently located in the heart of Kensington neighborhood and walking distance to coffee, cafes, nail salon/spas/barber shops, restaurants, gas station, and a short drive (longer walk) to a grocery store. There is a small park with swings, slides, etc and a library a stone's throw away from the house, which is perfect if you have small children. The house is conveniently located to the 15 freeway, downtown, the zoo, Balboa Park, children's museum, and the beaches. Darren, the owner, is wonderful, and has all kinds of maps and brochures of San Diego ready and available for you to use. The house comes fully equipped with everything you need in the kitchen, plenty of towels, beach chairs/umbrella/beach towels, a pack and play, and even a BBQ grill in the adorable backyard. My only three <minor> complaints are 1) that the mattress in the front bedroom squeaks a lot, so we woke up my sleeping baby every time we moved or shifted positions in bed; 2) something in the house flared up my allergies and my mother-in-law's allergies. My husband thought the house smelled like animals (cat possibly), but I couldn't identify the source. My MIL and I only took 1 Zyrtec the first night and were fine the remainder of our stay; 3) it is virtually impossible to see oncoming traffic as you are trying to back out of the driveway. We had to have 1 person stand out in the middle of the street to direct the driver out to make sure that we didn't getting clipped coming out. All in all, however, this is a perfect rental and we will definitely be looking to rent Darren's bungalow again when we return to San Diego!!
