Carefree Living

I am in my second year living at Kensington Place, having just renewed my lease. It has generally been a pleasure living here because the management is very responsive to my needs. Any time maintenance is needed, I put in an online request and the problem is usually fixed within one business day. The apartments are attractive, relatively new (about 4 years old), very clean, and well maintained. If you have a pet, it is also a very pet-friendly set of buildings. One building has only stairs, and the other has an elevator. Both buildings have plenty of exterior parking, but the building with the elevator also has a reserved space parking deck for a little extra cash. Rent and the water bill are paid online. I do an automatic draft, so I always know that my rent is paid. So, come to check out Kensington Place. With the gorgeous apartments, cool pool, spotless gym, rentable clubhouse, and beautiful landscaping, you can’t go wrong.

Beautiful and Awesome Staff

Everyone is friendly from Betty the manager to her staff including Shamicka , MaKeia and David in maintenance. They go way over and beyond making living there comfortable. It's a little pricey but it's a beautiful community and secured as well. I'm a returning resident.

Great Intro

Myself and my girlfriend were out apartment shopping and Kensington Place was our first stop and ultimately ended up being our last. Shamicka Neal was outstanding from the time we walked in the door. She did an awesome tour of the property which was very detailed about the operations and she highlighted the amenities, making this property highly attractive. The grounds and all the facilities were immaculate and the place had an overall, very inviting and cozy vibe. All the neighbors that we came across during the tour were very friendly and seem to be happy and comfortable. Many were taking advantage of their private balconies, reading or just relaxing while some were at the pool, cooling off on a warm summer day. A lot of thought went into the development of this residence as it seems that everything is geared towards convenience for the residents. Cant beat the Pub Room with big screen T.V's, pool tables, a putting green outside, grills, comfy lounge chairs, courtyard, a nice sized modernized gym, etc, etc, etc.....................The property almost sells itself, but Shamicka had an awesome selling style, which did not seem aggressive or made you feel pressured.....but made you ask yourself, "Why look anywhere else?" It was a one and done for us. SOLD!! Moving in tomorrow. Big THANK YOU to Shamicka Neal for being patient and supportive from beginning to end and making the process easier. She is also great with the follow-up. The one little thing that I would say could make the application process a little smoother is the initial registration onto the website to apply. It appears the program expects you to already have a password, at the time of registration. So you have to do the whole "I forgot my password" thing and that makes it kinda difficult just to get started. But outside of that completely satisfied with the entire experience so far. Very satisfied with our Leasing Consultant. Thank you.

Maintenance

Over the past 18 months, whenever we put in a work order request, the response was almost immediate. The maintenance staff was always courteous , quick , thorough and cleaned up after themselves. Very pleased with their work! Most recent repairs were performed by Marco and we couldn't be more pleased. He was tidy, respectful, quick and the work performed above expectations.

Amazing Staff

I am so grateful for Shamicka, Betty, & Make who have gone above & beyond for me since i've had the pleasure of moving into this community. They are top notch at what they do & always have a pleasant demeanor when I was in their presence (i know the job can get frustrating) From letting me in to get packages late (sorry) to always emailing me back promptly, and can't forget the accommodations we have received due to unforeseen circumstances leaves me speechless at this community. I am truly so grateful for everything & everyone here!

The best apartment living experience in Woodbridge

I have been extremely pleased with the staff and the property here at Kensington Place. We moved in last spring needing peace, quiet and a safe Haven away from the hustle and bustle of the city; this is exactly what we found here at Kensington Place. I intend to refer friends and family to this community without hesitation. Thank you to the staff for making this such an enjoyable place to call home!

Home Away From Home

I did not think it would be possible, but I have found my home away from home. It has been a year since I made the Kensington Place community my residence and I do not regret it. My lease will be up in a few months and I am definitely planning to renew when that time comes. One of the biggest factors for me staying here has been the nonstop professionalism and the genuine kindness from the office staff, especially from Scheila. When I first moved here, she vowed to take care of me seeing that the office was going through a transition phase with managers. Needless to say, she stuck to her word. The community is extremely nice and comfortable, with little to no noise, even on the weekends. The amenities are perfect... the sunrises from the balcony are many times, breathtaking... the pool is perfect for the hot summer months... the maintenance staff is one of the nicest and most efficient maintenance staff I have ever encountered. I love it here and I do not plan on moving anytime soon.

The office staff made our relocation to the area very smooth. I was under pressure to find a place under time crunch. The office staff was professional and made my transition as stress free as possible.

Great apartment! Well managed

I've lived in apartments for almost 20 years, I've seen the good, the bad, the downright ugly and everything in between, I've now lived here for over 4 months. Kensington is well managed, and the build quality/beauty of the grounds is near high end. I know most of the staff, who also live here and have a vested personal/business interest in keeping the whole complex operating smoothly. I know Woodbridge Apartments very very well as I've done direct personal investigation on many of them. I would highly recommend you give this place a look, if you can afford it. The people I see day to day here are friendly and the management tries to organize community events regularly.

Great Place to Live

We've been living at Kensington place for 7 months now. The staff is super reasonable and very responsive. The pub rooms is great for parties or just hanging out. The staff do a good job at keeping any hooliganism in the public areas to a minimum. Over all it's a fairly quiet and the neighbors are fairly friendly. The grilling areas always maintained and cleaned regularly along with with rest of the complex. This is the kind of place that you would recommend to your family members. A++

Was a great place to live!

We were one of the first residents back in August of 2014 and it was an enjoyable 18 months. From the very beginning the experience was always a positive one. We were moving from out of state with no clue as to were to put down...we lucked into a wonderful situation. They have a top notch staff that truly helps out in all types of situations. Like staying up through the night to keep the "Snowzilla" at bay with snow blowers and a Bobcat! If you are looking...we highly recommend Kensington Place in Woodbridge for your next home.

Kensington Place

The Kensington apartments are nice. The location is good with access to shopping, commuter lots and parkway is ideal. The staff is helpful and seem to enjoy what they do. It is a bit pricey. The grounds are well kept, except the trash area. Unfortunately, there is a problem with noise. The walls are thin and sounds carry through the day, night and wee hours of the morning.

Awesome sauce, but noisy neighbors!!!

I love living here... Great poolside view, and feel like I'm coming home to a hotel everyday!!! The only Complaint that I have are the noise from the people above me.. I assumed they changed the pet policy and allowed elephants as pets. Although you can't control noisy people, besides that it's an awesome place to live. Great location and great deal. Perfect for me!!!!! And Austin I heart you!!!! You were awesome when it came to moving in and and renewing. Can't wait for the next pool party!!! Lol!!!

AWESOMENESS TO THE FULLEST

OMG-just awesome. Today I called my community management office to simply inquiry about a rent payment that I need to make to find out there was a discrepancy that required further research on the property management's side that was not looking good in my favor. When I tell you the staff is awesome, they called me back immediately as they said they would (Natalie and Roy) with a resolution, not only was it in my favor but the issue was cleared up quickly, with compassionate, and I couldn't be happier knowing that I am in good hands, this could have went really bad and Roy turned it around and made it work for me, when it could have easily been beneficial to them. Thank you all so much for working with me and ensuring that my account with you all is squared away. I want to take the opportunity and say not only was my experience with Roy and Natalie pleasant today, I'd like to acknowledge Austin and Alyssa as well, it is very rare that you find a team where everyone is so helpful, courteous and down to earth - you guys & gals :) are the best ever!

Brand New

I moved in with the "2 months free" special about a month after they opened up. The value is great considering the fact that the apartments were brand new when I moved in. The staff has been pretty friendly. Most of my interaction has been with Austin. He made the leasing process as smooth as possible and has continued to answer all of my questions/concerns and is pretty laid back. Since the apartments are brand new I haven't had any maintenance issues. If I had any requests they were resolved in less than 24 hours. My only complaint would be my noisy neighbors but you can't really control how courteous people are.

Rounded Concepts

I'd like to give a personal thanks on behalf of service members everywhere. I have lived in many places in the last 6 years. I will always remember this place as being the best. I tell everyone that I talk to about how great a place this is to live. I wish that there was more advertising of this place (I do not see that much). The staff are amazing. Rory is very nice and I try to help out when I can. Austin is always awesome to talk to and Alyssa is such a cool lady! They always engage with the residents and tend to everyone's needs. George is the best handyman I've ever seen and actually cares about what he does. It would be a shame if the staff EVER lost him. He is invaluable! The pool has opened and it is amazing. Not too hot and not too cold; it's the perfect temperature! There's music and laughter and awesome times to be had all around this place. Super pet friendly, I think everyone here loves animals and those that don't are really respectful. I hope they build a dog park soon so I can invite all my friends over. I would love to see more people move here after seeing how well maintained the facilities are and how great the staff are. I would help promote this place even more if I could. I hope this review helps you!

Lovely place to live

A great place to call "home". The entire staff always greet you with a smile and are very helpful to our needs, and are quick to attend to any problems that arise . The grounds and facilities are kept clean every day. The fitness centers 24/7. The pool area is lovely. I love the convenience of the elevator and covered parking garage. . I live alone here and could not feel safer anywhere else....a beautiful neighborhood....
