Great house, location and owners!
This was our second stay. We were visiting family in Kensington. The home is a charming bungalow with updated kitchen and bathrooms. It is very comfortable and the backyard patio is quite nice as well. Kensington is a great neighborhood, inland from downtown San Diego and the beaches. It is right off Hwy 15 and provides easy to access other areas in San Diego. Marie-france and her husband are quite lovely and attentive to every detail. We will defintely stay again next time we are in San Diego - highly recommend!
Thank you so much Susan for your comments. We are so glad you and your family enjoyed your second stay at our house. It was great having you here. Thank you for your thoughtfulness. We wish you a very Happy Holiday Season and hope to see you soon. Best to you and yours.
This property is in a wonderful area of San Diego. Kensington is family oriented with lots of people out and about during the day. The home is relaxed with a restful dining area outside. All rooms are inviting and cozy. Delightful tiling in bathrooms and kitchen add to the experience of California living. Everything we could need in the kitchen was supplied as well as towels and guides for the area. We thoroughly enjoyed meeting Marie-France and Gerald Gaucher; Gerald even came at 9:30 PM for assistance with computer issues! Wonderful home and grand host and hostess!
Dear Lynn, you were top-notch guests. We couldn't have asked for better people staying here. Thank you for being respectful and careful with the house. It was wonderful meeting you and getting to know you. Be well. We wish you the best.
This property was well sized, well equipped, and well situated. Our hose was also very thoughtful and attentive. Recommend!
It was great meeting you and your sweet family.
Best to you and yours for the rest of your time in San Diego. :-)
Good, quaint location. Good freeway access
Thank you Everett, for choosing our rental and your nice comments. Keep well.
This was a wonderful home to stay in located in lovely neighborhood of Kensington. The house and yard were even better in person. The homeowner was very attentive to all of our needs and readily available if we had any questions. We would gladly look forward to renting again from Marie-France should there be an opportunity in the future. She was very prompt in returning our deposit as well...we felt like we made a friend!
Laurie, it was so nice to meet you and your husband. You were such wonderful guests, very caring about our house and yard. You watered the plants ; they looked very well taken care of when you left. You washed the sheets and towels before your departure. How thoughtful of you!
It was also fun to exchange pictures. Thank you for that and also for being so attentive with the house. Mainly, thank you for your kind words.
We would love to have you come back.
Keep well. Our best to you and yours.
What a wonderful place to stay!!!
We traveled to San Diego for our daughters graduation from SDSU. We needed a place that was close to everything. What we found was a charming Spanish style home in a unique area known as Kensington. The home and area were perfect! The homeowner couldn't have been more pleasant to talk with, and when we arrived there was even a graduation card waiting for our daughter. If you enjoy cooking the kitchen is modern and spacious, and we found ourselves spending a great deal of our time enjoying the spacious backyard. If you enjoy eating out try the local restaurants, you will not be disappointed. Will we be back? Absolutely :)
Thank you very much for your sweet comments. It was so nice speaking with you on the phone and through e-mail! I am very happy that you found the place to your liking. You were wonderful guests, thank you for leaving the house impeccable. Please, come again :-). I wish you and yours all my very best.
Centrally located in the Kensington neighborhood of San Diego. Very close from 15, 8 and 805 freeways. Close from our beautiful zoo, SeaWorld and fun downtown.
