About Reggie White

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!

Reggie White purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Reggie White chose Kensington

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.

What makes this apartment unique

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!

Guestbook comments from the manager

"We spent 4 delightful nights at the "Cottage with the Red Door." The cottage had all the amenities we could possibly want - even a hot tub and luxurious towels. A lovely neighborhood to walk around in with access to all kinds of dining options. Easy access to I 15 and I 8. Extremely responsive owner to some minor issues that cropped up. All in all a great choice. "

Are You Kidding Me?

  • 5 of 5

This two complete apartment units building is unmatchable for a 5-star stay treat for our out-of-town family members (two daughters, their husbands, and our five grandchildren). Second year for our clan was all the more special because the adults and children already knew it was going to be the perfect nest. One daughter reported that our three-year old grandson had been talking about coming to their "compartment" in San Diego for months. As always, manager/owner wonderfully responsive to special requests (like providing two pack and plays for the 17-month old twins). Awesome.

We were having our floors refinished and needed to be out of the house for almost two weeks. We live in Kensington so this was an awesome place to stay.

Squeaky clean and comfortable; convenient to all kinds of services! Air conditioning if warm!

  • 5 of 5

This vintage charmer is delightful! We wanted a place that was close to our family who live in Kensington - it's within walking distance of them, as well as restaurants and markets - so convenient! It is SO clean, well appointed, and the owner is very available to take care of any issues that may arise. We rented the one-bedroom on the lower level of the two story house, and weren't disturbed by the upstairs guests. We had a private entrance and felt secure. We slept well and truly enjoyed our stay! We'll be back!

Charming & safe neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Kensington neighborhood. There are nice restaurants within walking distance. The apartment is well appointed & we had everything we needed for our stay. Reggie is a very attentive owner, always answered our texts quickly, & allowed us to check in a few hours early. My husband & I enjoyed sitting in the shady front yard in the evenings when the temperature was cooler. We also enjoyed the hot tub in the back yard!

Don't miss the Antique Row Cafe for breakfast just a few miles away on Adams Avenue.
