Manager info

Year Purchased: 2014

About: Hi! I'm Reggie and my wife and I love staying in VRBO's all over the world! We own many properties in Kensington and around San Diego, but Kensington is our absolute favorite spot. We live just a few blocks away, so we will probably run into each other from time to time. I hope to see you soon!

Why Kensington, San Diego, CA, USA:
We live in the neighborhood with our two sons and 2 mini dachshunds. We bought this property so my friends and family would have a place to stay nearby. We loved the vintage vibe and awesome view of Kensington.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
This beautifully maintained property was built in 1940 and the previous owners have taken immaculate care of it. I think it really fits with the historic feel of Kensington and is a wonderful place to relax!
