About Lisa Karmazin

I was born and raised in the Point Loma/ Sunset Cliffs area of San Diego and know this area like the back of my hand. I enjoy helping people carve out activities that create the perfect vacation, from local surf spots to five star and dive bar dining. I know the ins and outs of exploring our city in a variety of ways for any age traveler with or without children.

Lisa Karmazin purchased this house in 2009

Why Lisa Karmazin chose Point Loma

It is the best of both worlds....so close to the ocean and area restaurants and shops, amazing surf spots, yet secluded, located far off the street....tucked away in a zen like setting, away from the chaos of the beach town and party scene.

What makes this house unique

We love having the option of walking down to the secluded beach for a swim,the big beach, a wine bar or the hills along the cliffs. This is also true during the 4th of July fireworks show. We can either watch them from the deck or get closer simply by walking down to the big beach, bypassing all the parking and traffic.

This home is so unique in that it is set back off the street and very private yet open. The master bedroom is enclosed by greenery yet still has a view if the ocean. So beautiful to wake up to. The house feels like a day spa mixed with an edge of a modern eatery.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lisa's beautiful accommodating home was perfect for my college graduation weekend! I had family fly out from Ethiopia and Washington state and she was very flexible with check in times. The home is meticulously clean, very spacious and is equipped with all necessary amenities. The kitchen is a chef's dream, the outdoor seating is even more phenomenal in person (you can peak the ocean view from the house), and the ambiance is a great balance of calm and classy. There is an outdoor shower that can come in handy as well. Also Sunset Cliffs is only a few blocks walking (try to get there right before sunset for breathtaking views)! Lisa is such a genuinely kind host and we are so grateful to have had the pleasure of spending our stay at her modern Ocean Beach home! If I am back in San Diego definitely would love to stay here again. Thank you so much Lisa for an incredible experience!!! <3

Quiet, clean and spacious

  • 5 of 5

Our family of seven had a great time here during our visit for our daughters gymnastics meet. There was plenty of room to spread out, the outdoor living spaces were inviting and the house was stocked with all the necessities. We particularly liked the beach equipment, chairs, umbrella, toys and boogie boards. The neighborhood has a quiet residential feel and is away from the touristy areas of town, but within a short drive to everywhere. We went tide pooling at the nearby sunset cliffs park and played in the waves at ocean, mission, La Jolla shores and Coronado beaches. Cabrillo national monument is particularly close. We saw so many grey whales from the lookout that we went out on a chartered boat and saw them up close one day. We went with Hornblowers Cruises and Events and thought they did a great job. They have a large boat, which was ideal for our group, which included small children.

Very comfortable and a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We were attending a family wedding in Pt. Loma so the location was perfect for us. We had enough beds and bathrooms for my husband and myself, our three children and their partners. It was quiet, comfortable and the owner was considerate and very easy to work with.

Wonderful for a family of all ages.

  • 4 of 5

This property has it all for a family. The enclosed deck was secure for small children playing. The family room / kitchen space was spacious and opened to the large decked sitting area. Everything we needed for children was available: pack n play, high chair, books, toys, and beach equipment. The large pantry had all a multitude of cooking and serving pieces. The adults were comfortable with plenty of space to visit both in and out. The short walk to the Sunset Cliffs and cabinet with beach chairs and toys was an added bonus. The home was clean and attractive. We had an issue with the 2 front burners not working properly on the range and the outdoor grill has was a challenge to light and cook on. We like to cook together so this was a disappointment but we made it work. The burners were reported to the manager and owner and they both sounded eager to resolve. We also reported one safety issue with the outdoor steps. Take your time on the outdoor steps. There was a lot of condensation during our visit which made the steps slippery. Overall, it was a great property that suited our needs for eight adults and two small children.

Beautiful getaway in San Diego

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our group of girls. We had 8 ladies stay here and it worked out great! The house is tucked away and quiet. We LOVED having air conditioning (especially in July). There was everything we needed for cooking and dinners. We even utilized the awesome DVD set and watched Wall-E (my fav) and all cuddled in a bed. The only thing that I would note is that on VRBO the check out says 11am and it is actually 10am. But no big deal. Amazing house.

Peaceful Oasis

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed our stay at Lisa's property - it is everything stated and more. The property itself has a wonderful, family-friendly layout. My two-year old could wander around and I didn't worry about her getting into things or getting hurt. There's a gate at the top of the deck stairs, built-in dresser in the kids room, and a trundle for her to sleep on, as well as puzzles and toy cars/trucks, a booster chair, etc. It also worked well for grandma, who had the "white room" with her own bathroom, while our older teenage girls each had their own room connected by a door so they could giggle with the connecting door open or close it for privacy. My husband and I had the tranquil master with a large closet and our own bathroom. Plainly put, this place has everything a family of all ages could want. My 2-year old spend most of her time on the deck - she is now a big fan of indoor/outdoor living! The views of the sunset from the deck, master, and living room are lovely. There are small delis and restaurants that are walkable but large stores and restaurants are a short drive away. We went to Sea World one day, which is a 10-minute drive, we found a great family beach another 10 minute drive, as well as cute shops, bakeries, and even a wine tasting room all a short drive away. Lisa was wonderfully easy to work with - she was very accessible and concerned with making sure our needs and expectations were met. Check in and check out were easy. I would stay again but maybe for longer!

Awesome Stay, Wonderful Property!

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay here! The owner of the property, Lisa, is super to work with, very friendly and took great care to ensure we were comfortable. The house's location is super! It's two blocks from the ocean and within walking distance of the hub of Ocean Beach where there are alot of good restaurants and shops. It's also a short car ride to the airport, Mission Bay and the Gas Lamp District. The house itself is fabulous! It's modern, has a great layout and is very clean. The furniture is contemporary and the beds are really comfy but what we liked best about the house is the kitchen island! Oh my goodness we made wonderful memories sitting around that island, laughing and telling stories. It's a vacation we won't forget! It's a great house and the owner is just as wonderful!
