Beautiful modern apartments, very thin wallssubmitted by Augustin C. - |Recommended: YesMy wife and I absolutely love Kensington apartments except for the thinness of the walls. Neighbors' dogs barking and howling can be heard at almost all hours of the day, and our neighbors were pounding on their ceiling our floor because we were playing some background music. Other than the thin walls, we absolutely love our apartment and the property in general.
response from property -Hello, We love that you are enjoying living here at Kensington and thank you for the positive recommendation. We also appreciate you letting us know about your experience with the dogs . While living in an apartment community we know that things can get a bit loud from time to time. We encourage you to come by the office and discuss these types of concerns as we could be of some assistance, and could quite possibility remedy your noisy neighbor concern. . We hope to see you at our Easter egg hunt this coming Saturday. Lisa Jones
Great spotsubmitted by Alicia K. - |Recommended: YesIt’s a wonderful site with incredibly friendly staff. Maintenance is the fastest I have ever experienced and so helpful. The apartment is also surprisingly sound proof and the fellow tenants are polite. The only con I’ve found so far is the gym is too small. One elliptical for so many apartments is too few and it hasn’t been available in the multiple times I’ve visited the gym. Other than that, it’s a great property
response from property -Alicia! Thank you so much for giving us your feedback and that of a positive one! I appreciate you taking the time to say something nice...it's the little things that matter :) We look forward to seeing you at our next resident event. We are so happy you are enjoying your new apartment home. Lisa Jones
Best Lifestyle Living in Boisesubmitted by Wendy R. - |Recommended: YesI absolutely love living here. I feel like a rock star most of the time because of all the awesome amenities. Sometimes I look around and I'm like, I actually live here The only thing that I don't like is the road noise on State Street, but I guess that's just how it goes when you live close to everything.

Great Place to Livesubmitted by Lacey S. - |Recommended: YesThis is a great place to live. I have always felt so safe here and had virtually no complaints. The staff is attentive and responsive. The grounds are always kept in top shape and looking clean. The gym is quality as well as the resort style pool. There are so many stores food options within walking distance The only thing I would have changed about my time here is moving to top floor. We could hear our neighbors and their kids almost constantly- we could even hear their alarms going off in the morning. Besides that, it does not change my positive opinion on my lease as a whole. I would live here again.
response from property -Thank you for the great review, Lacey! Our team works very hard to ensure our grounds and amenities are kept up!
Mixed Feelingssubmitted by Breanna B. - |Recommended: YesIm half and half, there are really great things about living here, and there are not so great things.
response from property -Thank you for the review, Breanna! We would love to hear more about what you find to be great vs. what is not so great so we can work to improve your experience going forward. Please email our property manager directly at manager@live-kensington.com.

Poor choicesubmitted by William A. - |Recommended: NoPaper thin walls. Inflated prices that seem to go up every 6 mo.
response from property -William-Thank you for your honest feedback. We appreciate you letting us know about your experience while living here. While living in an apartment community we know that things can get a bit loud from time to time. We encourage you to come by the office and discuss these types of concerns as we could be of some assistance, and could quite possibility remedy your noisy neighbor concern. I see that you signed a lease with us back in December 2017 and recently signed a renewal lease with us. We want to thank you for choosing to continue making Kensington your home! I know that an increase in rent can be frustrating, but I can assure you that compared to the other communities in our area that offer similar amenities we are quite comparable in price. We always look forward to seeing you and your family at our Monthly events! Sincerely, Kensington Staff

Very Nice Place to Livesubmitted by Keith T. - |Recommended: YesDefinitely get a unit with a washer and dryer
response from property -Thank you for the kind words Keith and making Kensington your home! We love having your family here.
Nice, close to great foodsubmitted by Devin W. - |Recommended: YesIt's a nice place to live although I do have a couple complaints. Walls are very thin so keeping quiet and courteous to others is huge and not everyone does that. Also, depending on where you are on the property, taking out trash is a pain. We have to load our car up with garbage, drive across the complex and dump it. There needs to be more trash compactors or a bin located on the opposite side for other tenants.
response from property -Thank you for the feedback Devin, we're sorry to hear that you have these frustrations. If you are experiencing a noise issue during office hours please reach out to our office. If it is during our quiet hours we do have a security team that would be more than happy to assist you. Their contact information is Deep Six Parking and Security Services and their number is 208) 258-3505. I am sorry that our trash situation is frustrating to you, but unfortunately we are only allowed one compactor on sight according to city regulations. Thank you for helping make The Kensington a great place to live! Sincerely, Kensington Staff
