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!

What makes this House unique
We love this house for entertaining and that everyone has a space to retreat to. Secluded and private, there is a gate and long driveway that separates the homes to allow privacy and space. Also we as a family have a background in major event planning and contacts through out San Diego for any of your personal, event, or presentation needs. Most equipment needs most likely will already be available in our storage or we'll know where to find it for you! We also have a full office next door with copier, color laser printer and administrative & notary services available. Knowing you have support if you need while traveling is always a bonus, as well as an inn keeper that understands this is your vacation. We look forward to welcoming you to our rental!

Very warm and welcoming home on a quiet street in the Kensington Area
Very nice home. This home accommodated 7 adults very comfortably. We had nice breakfasts in the spacious and quiet backyard. This was the best equipped VRBO we have stayed in anywhere. We would definitely stay here again.
