About Sheryl Martin

Originally from southern Ohio I had no idea that there were beaches and islands and so much beauty and fun to be had up here. I fell in love...twice..once with the area and secondly with my husband Bob who is a wonderful compliment to my life and this passion of offering quality accomodations for a reasonable price.

Sheryl Martin purchased this apartment in 2000

We stayed here for 2 days it's close to the jet express. The unit was clean, and had everything you would need. Anything you needed the owners were quick to respond. They help you plan the perfect get away. We will stay here again.

Great place to stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a short break between my 2 boys baseball games and was able to stay for 3 nights/4days. The condo was spotless and very accommodating! The kitchen was fully stocked and Walmart and Kroeger was just down the road. We made most of our meals in the condo. The living room was a nice place to relax after a day of going to Cedar Point and swimming. Bathroom had great hot water supply for the 4 of us when taking showers. Beds were comfy with clean bedding. We watched the fireworks on the 4th from the balcony. Condo is close to Cedar Point (20 min), Kelly’s Island Ferry and the Africans Safari. Sheryl was VERY accommodating and prompt with answering all text messages. She was great to deal with! We will be back!

Wonderful people to rent from. Great location for us with a 4 year old!

  • 5 of 5

We came up for the first family vacation we would have with our four year old. It was a bonding time before her sister is born and she wanted to go to a beach. So to lake erie it was. The house was beautiful and clean. We found out it was supposed to be a rainy weekend and Sheryl and Bob both were wonderful with ideas we could do with our daughter. They even supplied some sand pails and sand toys that she could use on the beach. Any questions I had they were text away and just very pleasant overall. If we visit the area again we definitely will be checking availability to stay with them again thanks again for a wonderful stay!]

Great location, great host

  • 5 of 5

We loved all of the small touches like the nightlight in the bathroom, soft, fluffy towels and tissues in each bedroom. Location puts you close to Rt. 2. Nice deck area but it was just too cold to sit outside. Lots of seating for everyone in the living room. We would definitely rent again.

Great girlfriend weekend for 3

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED our stay! Close to activities we wanted to do and just relaxing on the deck (AWESOME). Rental was comfortable, quiet and relaxing (especially beds). Can't complain about anything as it had everything we needed. Would definitely stay here again when we come back to the area. FYI: there are stairs to entry so plan what you bring but after a couple of days we had them mastered. Bless you Sheryl you were so helpful and patient. You helped make our weekend memorable
