Kensington house description

Welcome to sunny San Diego! Our home is located in Kensington, a historic and sought out neighborhood in the central part of San Diego. We are 6 blocks from the local village that has several fabulous restaurants including Award Winning Restaurants, Casual Dining, and Wine/Beer and Full Bars.

We are freeway close and centrally located - approximately 15 minutes to the Gaslamp, Sea World, Beaches and La Jolla - and just a little further to the local Mountains & Deserts or to the Temecula Wine Country.

Our family owns the home next door, so we are here to assist if you need, or let you enjoy the serenity of all our home has to offer on your own.

As San Diego locals for over 35 years - we know about our Finest City - and are happy to help make any arrangements or make suggestions about some of our favorites and hopefully soon to be yours.

We have ample parking, including space for an RV or trailer. We have hosted many events at the home and can assist you if you are doing the same.

The single story layout of the home and ramp in the back yard make it very accessible for most guests - we are happy to discuss with you any of your specific needs. Our goal is your enjoyment of our wonderful location!
