About Kelly Brehm

The Point Loma Charmer is a great property. After living in it for three years, we started renting the Charmer out to our guests in 2005. Since then we have had over 150 families stay at the Charmer with over 60 positive reviews.

Having traveled and rented vacation homes around the world, we know what makes for a great stay: a house that is clean, well-maintained, and centrally-located to all of the tourist attactions.

The most satisfying aspect is reading the kind comments from our guests in our Guestbook and seeing where the Charmer has made a difference in making their vacation, reunion, or wedding reception a success.

We even hosted the founder of VRBO at the Point Loma Charmer -- see his review on 'VRBO Stayed Here.

Kelly Brehm purchased this house in 2002

Why Kelly Brehm chose Point Loma

The Wooded Area of Point Loma is noted for its beautiful homes and 100 year old trees. The property is located in a residential neighborhood that is tranquil and inviting yet close to everything that San Diego has to offer: the world famous San Diego Zoo, Sea World, Ocean Beach, Sunset Cliffs National Park, Cabrillo National Monument, Legoland, Downtown Gas Lamp District, San Diego Yacht Club and more. And always sparkling clean!

What makes this house unique

Our favorite evening at the Charmer begins with drinks at the outdoor wet bar on our large deck. Then, off to San Diego's Gaslamp district, which is only minutes away, for some of the finest cuisine that San Diego has to offer. After dinner, we would stop off at Sunset Cliffs to watch the sunset, which are some of the finest in the world. Then, back to the Charmer for a soothing Jacuzzi while listening to our favorite music and the soft rustle of the bamboo. To respect our neighbors please abide by San Diego's noise curfews at 11:00pm on weekends and 10:00pm during the week. Move inside to enjoy our beautiful home for late night fun.

VRBO Bear stayed here

Nov 30, 2009

This Point Loma charmer of a home was the perfect location for my fall trip to San Diego. Located on in a quiet wooded Point Loma neighborhood, this comfortable casual home offers everything a little bear could hope for, yet is less than 10 minutes from San Diego's Lindbergh field (how convenient is that?). This home is close to EVERYTHING that San Diego has to offer - the lights of the Gaslamp District and downtown San Diego, Sea World, the San Diego Zoo, the USS Midway (a must for WWII History buffs), watching the sunset from Sunset Cliffs, or the nearby beach communities of Ocean Beach, Mission/Pacific Beach, La Jolla. And after a day of sightseeing, what more could a little bear desire than my own little place of solitude? That's what this home offers, and so much more... Upon arriving at the home, you will take note of the quiet dead end street location (very little traffic) complete with a fenced front and rear yard. Upon entering, you'll appreciate the comfortable living and dining areas and hardwood floors throughout. The sunny equipped kitchen, and the large deck area off the kitchen is perfect for both small or large groups, complete with BBQ, Hot Tub and even your own private basketball court. When the sun goes down, and it's time for a little hibernation, the comfortable master bedroom suite is a great place to retire and dream about all the exciting things in store for tomorrow. The VRBO Bear P.S. As an added bonus, for those visiting Point Loma Nazarene University (PLNU), this home is just a few short blocks from the school, making it perfect for visiting alumni or parents of current students who prefer a real home, rather than a small hotel room.

Point Loma Charmer was just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We would definitely recommend the Point Loma Charmer! It was perfect for our stay when our daughter got married in Point Loma in May 2008. It provided a great place to prepare for the upcoming events, to entertain guests, and was also a really good place to relax. It is clean with very good electronics (TV, stereo system that plays ipods, wifi, etc.) and the kitchen had very nice appliances. We loved the back patio! People who dropped by had many favorable comments, as well. It really is charming!

Conforts of Home

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Point Loma Charmer for 6 days at Thanksgiving. We are San Diegians that are in the middle of a 3 year temporary assignment in Puerto Rico. We rented our our home in San Diego. So when we come back to town we need a place to stay.

This was a perfect house for us. I hosted Thanksgiving for 10 people and the house was very confortable for that many guest. The kitchen is set up to handle the task of a holiday meal. There were plenty of pots and pans and serving dishes. Also I think there were more then enough place setting.

The backyard is an extension of the house for living space. We actually ate Thanksgiving dinner outside. They is a big teak table outside under lights. There is also a wet bar out there, and a Jacuzzi and a basketball court. So there were many games of pig/horse played out there. The house also has a beach chair, boogie boards and coolers if you go down to the beach.

The house it self is very comfortable. The living room has a big comfy couch and 2 over sized chairs.

The owner were great to work with. I added another day later in the process and had a question the day before. The owner Kelly got back to me promptly. I will definitely be interested in renting this house in the future.

Lovely, spacious home with a wonderful patio/deck for relaxing and entertaining

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here while we were attending our son's wedding in San Diego. 3 Bedrooms and 2 baths were perfect for our family of 7. the kitchen had just what we needed to cook, plenty of clean towels and linens. The deck, with hot tub, was beautiful. We also were able to get in a game of hoops on the large basketball court. the location is perfect as our wedding venue was about 10 minutes away. Close shopping (grocery) and some nice restaurants. The owners are great to deal with - Note ladies there isn't a hair dryer (bring your own). If we visit San Diego for an extended period we will definitely book here again!

Owner's Response: We're glad you enjoyed your stay Luannah. There is a hair dryer in the master bathroom. You must have missed it because I'm currently at the house and it hasn't been taken.We hope you stay at our Point Loma Charmer again soon. Kelly
