Guestbook comments from the owner

September 2-6, 2010. Family from Blytheville, Arkansas.

We all really had a great time here! The house is beautiful! The weather was a little chilly while we were here but we still had a great time going to Cedar Point and Put ‘n Bay. Renting mopeds and mini cars was super fun. We also enjoyed playing putt-putt at Island Adventure and eating ice cream at Toft’s Ice Cream Parlor. They have every flavor ice cream you can think of (Ice Cream Heaven}. Overall, we had an excellent time and hope to come back one day. Thank you for the yummy Gift Basket! Sincerely,
Sep 2010

One of the BEST!

  • 5 of 5

My family & I cannot say enough wonderful things about this lovely home. The location, the pool, the beautiful & clean decor, and the well-stocked kitchen made this vacation rental one of our favorites. The owners (Pat & Dwight) showed such kindness & understanding with every question we had. Their gift basket was very appreciated. From swimming in the pool, to Kalahari, to the African Safari, to the many restaurants, and just spending family time playing games, this vacation rental felt like home. We hope to return soon to one of the BEST places. Thank You!

Port Clinton Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This condo was just as shown in the pictures and described. It is situated such that there is a row of condos between it and Lake Erie, but there is a view of the lake out of the living room window.

It is very well-maintained and clean. Every detail has been addressed, including a welcome gift basket filled with local treats. It really was like entering into our own home and having everything we needed. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The kitchen has ample room for preparing and serving meals, and it is well equipped with everything, including spices.

The weather cooperated for our weekend away, and we were able to enjoy Put In Bay one day, and the Maritime Museum in Sandusky and a walk along the shore on another one. At PIB we traveled about on a golf cart, taking in the sights of the island. The view from the top of Perry's Monument was definitely worth the admission and the rangers were very interesting and helpful too. The Heineman's Winery tour was not worth going on, their crystal cave tour was short but fascinating, and we liked their grape juice better than the wine when we had samples. We had lunch at T&J's Smokehouse, and it was ok at best and pricey for the quality.

The Maritime Museum was a surprisingly good find. Pattaya Restaurant across the street from the condo was very good for Thai food, but the sushi wasn't as good. There is a grocery store practically across the street as well which was convenient.

The owner is professional and communicates clearly and timely. She even sent an email when we returned home regarding something we had left behind which had been found by the housekeeper. This was our first experience at renting a home, and it definitely gives us confidence to do it again! Thank you, Pat, for making your home available for our family's weekend vacation.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your great review. We are so pleased that you found our lake house to be a wonderful first time vacation home rental experience. We do strive to offer our guests a comfortable home away from home. The cleanliness and condition of our house is very important to us as our goal is to make each client feel that they are the 'first renters'. You certainly were very busy for two days and appreciate your candid views of your experiences. The Lake Erie Islands and Port Clinton area do have many varied venues for spending family time. Come back again!

Well-appointed condo, welcoming to Young Families

  • 4 of 5

Our 2 families were very pleased with this well-appointed, incredibly well-stocked condo. Very comfortable beds, beach towels & toys provided, every pan you need to cook up a great family meal and grille and Wifi.

The condo is very comfortable and spacious. Both families had plenty of space to be together and take a break, as well. Two car garage (fit a minivan and a Tahoe!), 3 bedrooms w/ attached baths, DVD/VCRs and movies and TWO King beds! There were plenty of bathroom towels, even toiletries (shampoo, conditioner and body wash) and a welcome basket with wine, cheese, coffee and juice boxes!

Very close proximity to all Lake Erie activities, ferries, more than a week's worth of fun for people of all ages. We could even walk to a few restaurants, a grocery store, public beach/playground.

Our vacations demand ice cream daily and the area's shining star is Toft's brand, especially at Andy's Drive-thru.

We had a really good time. It ended up just being the 3 of us with no kids so we had a nice relaxing vacation. We went to Put-in-Bay and Kelly’s Island. Also had some family and friends visit that live in this area. When we first arrived our friends from Clyde Ohio had a wonderful picnic for us at East Harbor. It’s been great – thank you.

Thanks also for the gift basket. "The house is great.”

You honestly could not ask for a nicer place, it is decorated beautiful and we were shocked when we first arrived at how "perfect" it was.

Stocked like home

  • 5 of 5

My mother, 2 year son, husband and I spent a week here. There was a wonderful welcome basket waiting with coffee, wine and snacks. The house was so well stocked with tissues in every room, toilet paper, extra bath towels, laundry detergent, VCR tapes, books to read, child toys, beach chairs, beach towels and beach toys that it took only 5 minutes of being there to see how badly I had overpacked. The beach and pool/hottub were 2-5 minute walks and very nice. We loved having king beds and TVs in the bedrooms. We cooked most nights and were happy with the kitchen and grill. The owners are skilled in customer service and sent a nice thank you on our return. This is a great place to stay. Around the place, we went to Cedar Point, the drive through Safari (bring carrots and save some for the gentle giraffe and the end), the Train-o-rama (not recommended - a room of models), Put-in-Bay and some local restaurants (the Crowe's Nest has nice outdoor seating and good food, we were not impressed with Bootleggers - expensive for what you get, McCarthy's also had good food and beer of course). And if anyone ever hurts their back and needs a chiropractor, Dr Darr works miracles.
