We had an amazing time during spooky bear weekend. The house is incredibly comfortable and beautifully decorated. We had intentions of going to dinner at least one night during our stay, but wound up using the great kitchen our entire trip. The hot tub certainly aided in our goal of having a relaxing weekend. The fireplace was an excellent touch for the cold nights. Perfect location on the west end. I would highly recommend this space to friends.

Lives up to the pictures

  • 5 of 5

This is a stunning condo that looks too good to be true in the listing, but it actually lives up to the pictures. The main living space is enormous and comfortably furnished... the centerpiece is a massive glass dining table that seats 12 and is placed along the floor-to-ceiling window that overlooks the pool. We hosted a wonderful dinner party, and the kitchen is very well-stocked with appliances, cookware, and dishes so we had everything we needed. One drawback to the large, open common area with such big windows is that it does get warm in summer months (especially in the kitchen if you're cooking), but I think this is common in Ptown. There are AC units in all three bedrooms, so they stay cool.

The place sleeps 6 easily. The master bedroom is a gem, and everyone in our group wanted it... I highly recommend assigning rooms before your trip so there are no arguments! We did take turns using the master shower because it is like a high-end spa with 10 shower heads (truthfully, you can't use them all at once because the water pressure drops). The other 2 bedrooms feel cramped in comparison (there's no where to store your suitcases), although they're fine for a week-long trip.

One of the best things about this unit is its location just a few blocks from everything in town. The condo is located on a quiet street away from the noise but close enough that you can easily walk everywhere but the beach... we rented bicycles for that, and there's a big bike rack out front for storing them. There are great restaurants in both directions (my favorite meal was at Victors, which is less than a 5-minute walk).

My only minor quibbles are: There's no garbage disposal so clean-up gets messy, and there are not enough towels and sheets so you'll probably have to wash a few loads in the middle of the week. There are laundry units located on the premises, but who wants to do the wash on vacation? Also, the washer and dryer seem kinda pricey at $3.50 each, so plan to bring a few rolls of quarters if you intend to do laundry.

One last thing I want to mention is how much we LOVED the fresh-cut flowers. There were 3 or 4 enormous bouquets in the living area and on the dining table when we arrived, and the whole house smelled delightful all week.

Another Great Year in Kensington Gardens

  • 5 of 5

My favorite place to stay in P-Town has only gotten better. My 3rd year in a row - now with an amazing new master bathroom and private livingroom bathroom - it's a wildly unique place to be with a pool and hot tub. Central, clean, beautiful, fun. Can't recommend highly enough.

We could not have asked for a more perfect place and location for our family vacation. The condo is beautiful and well maintained. It had everything we needed to make the most of the week and keep our 2 young children mostly entertained thanks to the pool! We loved being able to walk everywhere as well! The only thing I would say caught us slightly off guard is that there is designated Adult Swim only time from 12-2pm daily. We were not made aware of that in advance..And just a few of the other complex guests were not very friendly. Otherwise, we hope to return next summer!!

Spacious 1st floor, 3 bedroom and 3 bath with wonderful heated pool

  • 5 of 5

Just viewing the pictures of this wonderful place, Iknew that after five years of test driving other accomodations, we had finally found our Ptown home away from home. Linens and beach towels included! No need to washthem when leaving! Yay! Plenty of beach chairs and umbrellas! Everything wr needed. Bedrooms were crystal cold with airconditioning. Close to the west end shops and restaurants! My only suggestion would be to have airconditioning in the kitchen. The week was luckily sunny and hot which is great for pool andbeach time but weonly cooked in the kitchen one night because it was abit too warm. Otherwise we love it and will be back next year!

A nice winter time stay

  • 4 of 5

This is a neat and clean property in a great location. The owner is very nice and easy to get along with. The unit is set up for rental. Things are clearly labeled and there is a nice welcome book with essential information. I understand that a 10AM checkout is common in Ptown but it seemed too early. Even 11AM would be a big improvement. The fireplace down drafts a little bit and had to be watched. Overall a solid rental

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your feed back and for staying in my home. The person who cleans my home has agreed to change his schedule -allowing me to move the check out time till 11:00am in the future. I am sorry about the draft from the fireplace, there is a brass knob below the mantel to control the damper that perhaps was open. Thanks for the nice review and best regards, Ira
