Kensington is a charming community in central San Diego. From the library and charming parks, to the two coffee houses (Starbucks and Kensington Café) to the last independent single screen theater in San Diego, the Ken Theater. And of course, you will have many great restaurants within walking distance including Blue Boheme, Cucina Sorella, Ponces (my very favorite Mexican restaurant in San Diego), Burger Lounge, and the Haven for great pizzas and salads. To relax with a drink, there is the Ken Club, the Vine or Clem's tasting room. Just down the street in Normal Heights and North Park is filled with great restaurants and breweries. You will love Kensington!

About the owner: Hi, We're Van & Christy. We are fun loving and active people. We love living in San Diego and take the time to enjoy the many things there are to do here. We spend a lot of time camping and exploring Baja. Van has been venturing south most of his life, and has introduced it all to Christy. He will never get enough of his adventures south of the border. Christy has been a runner for much of her life and traveled out to many other cities in pursuit of a good run in a great city. She's traveled all over the world, many trips she took were by herself which she says were a great way to meet new people. We both have a lot of family in town, including grown kids, and are currently looking forward to the wedding of Van's oldest son. We live on the property, in the front house, and are happy to help with any of your plans. The cottage is behind the house and is very charming. We know you will love it!!
