About Dara Smith, Owner
We were born and raised in New Orleans, LA, and have had a connection to Fairhope, AL since 1981 when family members began moving there. We fell in love with the little quaint town and wanted to move there ourselves, but the closest we were able to get is Ocean Springs, MS (just 75 miles to the west of Fairhope) when we relocated in 1994. Ocean Springs is a nice town, very much like Fairhope, an ... more +
Why This Property?
My mother meticulously drew the plans to fit the unique lot and her furniture, and my parents had Kensington built in 2006. We inherited the property in 2010, and having an emotional attachment to the house and many of the furnishings, we decided to keep it as a second home until we are able to permanently move there. We entertain family and friends at Kensington as often as possible. The more t ... more +
Unique Benefits
Kensington is extraordinary for a "rental." You will find the standard of cleanliness, maintenance and furnishings to the degree that is only found when the owners are personally involved, as we are. Kensington is our personal vacation/family home and we are meticulous in seeing to its upkeep. There is no better location than Kensington. It is walking distance to shopping, eating, banking -- it ... more +

Perfect Location & well stocked kitchen!
Date of Stay: July 1st , 2015

We relocated to the area and had the pleasure of staying at Kensington Court for six months during our transition. (8/15-1/16) This is a home, not a rental house. With three children, we cook! The kitchen had every imaginable item you would need to cook any meal, including a holiday meal. We spent Christmas in the home. The Location on Fairhope Avenue is extremely convenient to everything downtown, as well as the grocery store, schools, sports fields & Post Office. It's located on a quiet cul-da-sac in a safe neighborhood. We were fortunate to find it! We enjoyed our stay and it made for an easy transition to this quaint town.

Wonderful Vacation Rental in a Lovely Town
Date of Stay: January 1st , 2015

We have rented this lovely home for three years now and have already renewed for next year. The house has a great layout with the master suite on one side of the living/dining room and the guest wing on the other. The kitchen and laundry appliances are all up to date. The large garage makes a protected entry on rainy days, and the enclosed patio is a lovely spot on sunny ones. The furnishings give the feel of someone's home, not a hotel, and add to the warmth and comfort. The neighborhood is quiet and level, ideal for walking, and close to a large variety of grocery, drug and discount stores. Fairhope has a public beach and park on Mobile Bay two miles away, and many activities throughout the year.
