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 County

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.

Cute place, great location

  • 5 of 5

We had tried to rent one of Lisa's other properties, which turned out to be booked, so she suggested this one instead. Despite it being smaller, it fit the 7 of us (3 adults, 4 children) quite well. The layout is thoughtful, especially the full-over-full bunk in the children's bedroom, which makes it possible to put several children in there. An FYI for those with small children, there is no tub in the children's bathroom, but we made do with showers for the week (hey, we're on vacation, right?) The location is great -- there is a small view of the Pacific from the deck area -- and we walked to Sunset Cliffs a few times.

Lisa is also very responsive. We had requested a crib and a high chair, and when we arrived they weren't there. It turned out housekeeping had locked them up in the back closet, so she came over fairly quickly to fetch them. She even had a basket of toys for small children, which was a nice touch.

Perfect for family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week in this home for spring break with our family of five. It's was absolutely perfect. The home is bright, well-kept, spacious, and in a great location. Lisa, the owner, was very helpful and available for questions. The house is well-located for Legoland, the San Diego zoo and Safari Park, visiting La Jolla, and of course the beach. Walking distance to Sunset Cliffs to see amazing sunsets was also a bonus. We would definitely stay again. Thanks Lisa!

Attractive property in great location

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 8 adults, 2 children, and one infant had a wonderful time here.

The kitchen was great, with every appliance, good storage, and new pots and pans. Everything was clean and as described.

Lisa was very responsive to our few requests.

We spent a lot of time on the deck because the weather was beautiful and the deck was smooth and spacious. Would have liked to use the propane heater in the evenings but the tank was empty.

The walk to the beach is fun and the waves were impressive! We didn't see anyone swimming there - rather chilly - though another day the beach at nearby La Jolla was packed.

San Diego has so many attractions. We loved Balboa Park and the Maritime Museum. The 10-minute drive to the airport was very convenient, too.

We want to come back - so that means we'd recommend it!

Hidden Beach Oasis

  • 5 of 5

Our girls reunion weekend would not have been as sweet if it wasn't for this beautiful Beach Oasis VRBO. We felt like queens staying in this luxurious home. Lisa was always one step ahead of everything and provides all the basics you could ever need - toiletries, towels, appliances, and every bit of helpful info you could ever want regarding the house and San Diego. But it also features so many cherries on top! With beach toys, a grill, an amazing outdoor patio with a heater, and such a beautiful, intentional design to the entire property, we could not have asked for a sweeter weekend. Thank you so much Lisa!

PERFECT GETAWAY STAY.....will be back!!

  • 5 of 5

I rented the house for a girls getaway weekend. There were 9 of us total and we had plenty of space. Everyone had a bed and slept comfortably. 3 full bathrooms were perfect for our group. There were plenty of mirrors as well, which is very important when you have 9 girls getting ready for a night out.

The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed, and everything was easy to find. Plenty of counter space for cooking, socializing and hosting. Everything was super modern and beautiful. The house came with a couple of speakers for music which we were able to use our iPhones with and loved.

It had AMAZING natural light, and a beautiful view of the ocean from several windows. It is a back house, but we had total privacy and our own entrance from the back alley. We didn't get to utilize much of the deck (only because we went in winter) but there is plenty of space. We did several walks to the beach during our visit, only 2 blocks away. We also were about 20-25 min from everywhere we went (downtown, PB). SUPER CONVENIENT.

The only thing that caught us a little off guard was the owner showed up unannounced during our visit. She did come to drop off oven mitts for the house, it was just a little unexpected. Other then that, we had an AMAZING time. We plan on doing another girls trip later this year and would love to use the same rental. The house was a perfect touch to our girls getaway. Thank you so much!!

Owner's Response: I explain during the booking process that I meet my guests at check in, especially the younger groups such as in this case, to copy ID's and review noise rules. If guests arrive after midnight as they did, I will be by later the next morning for check in. I thought I made this clear and also texted before my arrival, but did not receive a response. I understand how this could catch some people off guard and going forward I will make sure all guests receive and respond to my communications before arrival. I am glad the house was PERFECT for your gathering and that you will be returning for another adventure in sunny San Diego.

Lovely Home near the beach

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed a week in this home over the Christmas holiday. The home is just as it appears in all the pictures. It was clean, well stocked with dishes, and cooking appliances (coffee pot, crock pot, mixer, you name it, it's there). Lots of room for family to be together or have a little privacy in one of the bedrooms. Unfortunately, the weather did not cooperate this trip, so we were not able to fully enjoy the beautiful deck or outdoor dining. However, loved being able to stand on the deck with a cup of coffee and see and hear the ocean. Lisa was very accommodating and willing to go the extra distance to make our stay enjoyable. We would definitely stay here again.

Just 2.5 blocks from secluded Bermuda Beach, Sunset Cliffs and the quaint seaside town of Ocean Beach, all offer some of southern California's best surf spots and a walkers delight. This house is located in a quiet residential neighborhood that has within 2 espresso bar, liquor and wine convenience store, pizza shop, gas station, salons, and casual health conscious beach cafe serving smoothies, breakfast, lunch and dinner. Stroll down to the natural footpath found along the waters edge that will take you to tide pools full of sea life, the OB Pier, and the sandy shores of Ocean Beach all within 10 minutes by foot. Along main street of Ocean Beach called Newport Ave you will find surf shops, Chrystal Healers, Massage, Manicures, Clothing Stores, Organic food restaurants, Juice Bars, Burger joints, Lively pub and dance music scene. Something for everyone!

If you decide to leave the town of Ocean Beach, there are plenty of exciting attractions within minutes. Seaworld (5 minutes) and the World Famous San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park Museums and Little Italy is about 15 minutes away. Mission Beach Roller Coaster at Belmont Park is about 10 minutes away and a must see if traveling with kids.

I am a native San Diegan and can help create a vacation itinerary that suits your interests and energy level. Personal concierge service available.
