About the Property

Spacious Two Bedroom, One Bathroom Apartment

Come stay in our two bedroom 1940's vintage apartment! This place is famous in Kensington because there used to be free range chickens roaming the yard. There are no longer chickens.... but we kept them in mind while choosing the decor! Spectacular views from the large upstairs windows give you a great sense of what Kensington is all about. The original kitchen features yellow and green ceramic tiles and a Teppan Fab 400 electric range and oven, just like the one your mom used to have! Bath is newly remodeled and stocked with fluffy towels. Both bedrooms feature comfy cal-king sized memory foam beds. The living space features a fireplace and a 40' smart tv with WIFI, cable and Netflix for you to enjoy. Unwind at the end of the day by firing up the gas BBQ for your dinner, and hopping into the hot tub for a relaxing soak.
Don't need all this space? Check out our one bedroom unit!

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2014

About: My wife and I enjoy staying in VRBO's all over the world! We own rental properties all over San Diego, but we LOVE Kensington! We live only a few blocks away so you will probably run into us walking our two sons and 2 mini dachshunds around the neighborhood. I hope to see you soon!

Why Kensington, San Diego, CA, USA:
We purchased this property because like so many people in Kensington, our gorgeous 1928 spanish house has no extra room for guests! We wanted our visiting friends and family to have a comfortable place to stay when they came to see us.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
This property is in close walking distance to all that historic Kensington has to offer!
