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 traveller with or without children.

Lisa Karmazin purchased this house in 2009

Why Lisa Karmazin chose San Diego

It is the best of both 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.

Perfect for a big group

  • 5 of 5

A large group of us traveled to San Diego over the weekend for a friend's wedding and stayed at Lisa's house. It was wonderful - the beds were all comfortable, the linens are nice, house was clean and well-stocked with paper towels, toilet paper, and towels in the bathroom. Loved the large kitchen, which was where we spent most of our time (of course - the kitchen is the heart of the home). We prepared breakfast there daily and the house had plenty of pots and pans, utensils, and crockery for our group. The master bedroom suite was very nice. The only real drawback that I could identify is that the walls are rather thin, so noise does travel from one room to another. I'm a light sleeper, though, so travel with a white noise app on my phone and ear plugs, which always do the trick. LOVED the short walk to Bermuda Beach; Sunnie's Java Shack on Point Loma Ave was delightful; the restaurants in OB were great and we really enjoyed them. Overall, great stay. Thank you, Lisa!

Owner's Response: I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay and that the home suited your needs. Yes, the beds are wonderful! The back bedroom is soundproofed and was designed to accommodate light-sleepers like yourself or napping children. We look forward to seeing you again on your next vacation. Lisa

Long term relaxation and good value

  • 5 of 5

The deck, the deck, the deck!

One of the highlights of this property and our stay there was the expansive and very well appointed deck. Evenings spent from sunset to dinner under the free standing heater really were memorable.

The kitchen is quite large and easy to work in while remaining a part of the family activities and conversation.

The master bedroom, bath and closet are much larger than you all find in most any other "beach rental".

And the landlord is truly fantastic. Always quick to return phone calls and solve any problem to your complete satisfaction. A huge plus.

Fantastic beach house with lots of extras

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 10 (covering 3 generations) all loved this beautiful beach house which is light and airy, and very clean. There was plenty of space and privacy for everyone, and the bathrooms were beautiful. The children loved the bunk room and all the toys and books that they could play with. The plates, cups etc for the children was a lovely touch. The kitchen was well equipped and Lisa was incredibly helpful - both before and during our stay.

The deck was fantastic and we loved spending time out there. The sunset over the ocean was absolutely amazing and one of our favourite holiday pics! We loved walking to Ocean Beach and the Centre of San Diego was only a 5-10 min taxi ride away - perfect as we didn't want to hire a car. We will definitely stay again if we travel back to San Diego.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

We had a fun week at this house. We have 2 young daughters and we found the house to be comfortable and very well located for long walks and just a short drive from many San Diego attractions. There were many positives to this house but as all the other reviewers have mentioned them i will mention areas where i think there is room for improvement.

The toys and children's equipment were far from clean. Most mothers of infants are somewhat like myself and like everything my baby touches to be clean. I was very glad i had brought my own pack n play and linen.

We paid top dollar for this place and when paying 5 star rates I expect a little more then Ikea. It seemed to me almost everything in the house was from Ikea. Thats fine if you are charging 3 star rates but for this price we definitely expected more. The owners really need to consider updating the couches. Having miss matched ikea couches really let this place down. There is also only a small folding indoor dining table. If the weather doesn't permit eating outside on the patio (which would have been lovely had it not been too cold) it makes eating as a family quite difficult.

Owner's Response: Thank you for pointing out the wonderful location of this home. It is walking distance to the beach and just a few minutes to most of San Diego's major attractions. When looking for a great vacation home "location" is by far the most important feature. Value is another consideration. This home sleeps up to 12 people in 5 star "real beds", not pull-out couches or air mattresses like most other homes along the cliffs. It is a great value for larger groups on a budget. I try to keep my rates below all other similar homes offered in this highly desirable neighborhood. For a small family of 2 adults and 2 small children with a small group discount applied, it may feel like an indulgence, especially when booking during the popular News Year's holiday weekend (such as this reviewer). There was one couch and 2 matching loveseats that were light enough to be easily moved into a semi circle for group movie watching or pulled apart to open the space up for a gathering without scratching the floors. Since the writing of this review, I have replaced those pieces with a gorgeous and versatile custom sectional sofa that functions in this way and is a perfect piece. I am happy to report that it is not from Ikea but a high end custom furniture maker. Thank you for your input and as a result the problem has been solved. The kitchen island was designed to accommodate up to 10 people for a casual indoor meal together. There is not room for a full dining room set. The folding table can serve as an extension to the island or can stand alone for a family meal when desired. I have contacted our cleaning company about the children's items. Thank you for pointing that out so that we can resolve the issue. All in all, this home boasts beautiful ocean views in an amazing location with upscale luxury beds, well appointed kitchen with 4 different coffee makers, and gorgeous outdoor furniture that seats up to 17 people imported from France. We thank you for review and are glad you enjoyed your stay.

Wonderful week!

  • 5 of 5

Our entire family (8 adults & 2 small children) had a fantasic week at this lovely home!

We were thrilled with the house, all the wonderful amenities. It was so nice to have such a relaxing time together. The whole house was beautifully furnished. The beds were very comfortable, plenty of hot water, a well supplied kitchen and a fantastic porch that we lived on! Our grandchildren thoroughly enjoyed the toys that were in one of the rooms. There is a beautiful view of the ocean from the deck, living room and 2 of the bedrooms. There is a nice grill that we took advantage of and outdoor shower to rinse the sand off! Lisa even had beach towels and chairs, as well as an umbrella and other beach toys to use. We also enjoyed the new air conditioning, since it was August! Lisa was very quick to respond to any questions and very helpful with suggestions about local spots. There is a wonderful little beach down the street, that seems to be a well kept secret. The house is very private and quiet, very much an oasis and we all look forward to visiting again soon. I told Lisa, as we were leaving, everyone was so sad to go. Our daughter-in-law, as she walked out the gate, said "Good bye, perfect house!"....and we all agreed. Highly recommended!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. The view from the home is a wonderful to wake up to . I love the fact that you mentioned how the ocean is seen from almost every window. The little beach is perfect for children and adults. It is very romantic at sunset as well. I do pride myself in offering upscale mattresses to ensure a restful sleep. Thank you for staying with us and hope see you again very soon. Lisa

Wish it were my permanent home!

This house was a dream come true for our wedding weekend. We rented the property to house our extended family for our wedding in nearby Sunset Cliffs. The property is gorgeous, well thought out, and clean. There are tons of little touches that make your stay even better (the boogie boards in the closet rocked!). The location is perfect, walking distance from the beach and close to all of Ocean Beach's dining and hot spots. The owner, Lisa, is beyond friendly. She clearly wants to make your stay phenomenal and goes above and beyond to make you comfortable. I really wish I could stay at the house forever.
