About Marie

We have always lived in the Cleveland area and love being close to Lake Erie. when the children were little, we would spend time 'vacation' in a small trailer, as they got older, we would travel to different locations but always near the water ( ocean or lakes) Now we look forward to relaxing at the beach with our growing family!

Marie purchased this condo in 2007

Why Marie chose Ohio

The Port Clinton area has always been a special place for my husband, His family had a trailer when he was growing up, just down the street from the condo. He often will reminince about the time he spent fishing with his dad and playing all day in the lake with his friends. We knew we wanted to offer that to our children.

What makes this condo unique

The Waterfronts is a wonderful complex,. right on the beach, awesome view from the sunroom! The whole complex is clean and well kept, neighbors are friendly and the management is always ' on top of things' and accomodating.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Marie – thank you so much for allowing me to rent your condo this past weekend. Everything worked out great. I was there Thurs – Sun and my kids came in Sat afternoon and it all worked out great. We had room for all, and I think your sunroom was everyones favorite special bonus area. I knew my 21 year old would love to have that as his special spot and it was. Unfortunately they were not there very long and Sat was very rainy so no one got to take advantage of the back stairs etc. But we all had plenty of room for “getting ready” prep etc. The location was even better than I had hoped – not only for the ambiance which unfortunately I didn’t get to take much advantage of – but for the running around to the house on Harrison and the church on Jefferson on Thus, Fri and Sat and so this worked out great as I was never more than 10 minutes away from when someone remembered they needed something and I had to turn around and make another trip J .

Thanks again for all of your help with the adding on of Thursday and the close communications in re: to contract and check in process.

Very nice. Well kept.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here 4 nights for a relaxing family vacation. Nice, quiet, clean place just as it appeared online. No surprises. Owner was helpful and always quick to reply regarding questions. Well maintained family oriented property with an awesome heated pool. The bed was a little hard, otherwise the perfect vacation. Hope to stay here again sometime. Thank you Nick and Marie for sharing your place with us.

happy overall with our rental

  • 4 of 5

Upon arrival, I looked the place over quickly before anyone came inside and I was satisfied with the cleanliness of the unit. It was much smaller than most places we have rented but we felt like the added bonus of the beach/pool/playground would make it worth the sacrifice. We drove to Michigan for the NASCAR race, went to Cedar Point 3 days and went to a few local restaurants. My hope was to put my teenager on the fold out sofa but the mattress was very worn and we had to put our 7 yr old there. I have never had a daybed/ trundle but I expected them to both be mattresses, it seemed that the upper one was a boxspring. My teenager started the first night on the trundle but found he liked the upper day bed better. We really could have relaxed and enjoyed this place more but as bad weather was due on Thursday we checked-out early and headed to Kings Island to make more use of our Cedar Fair platinum passes. Both parks are 500+ mi from home and that was the focus of our trip. Some places go way overboard on the rules/chores when checking out and I felt like this place was very reasonable with what they wanted done. We did not cook on this trip and would normally do laundry, but didn't risk it because of a problem with the dryer lint screen. Wifi was poor to non-existent in the bedroom, usually worked fairly well in the living room. We appreciated finding pool towels, pool and beach items, pillows, blankets, games, etc. I felt that this location was very safe, and much nicer than any part of nearby Sandusky.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review, The sofa memory foam mattress was new the beginning of this season, and although it does dip in the middle, when i tried it , I didn't feel the support bar. As far as the mattresses on the trundle and daybed, they are both mattress, the top is a mattress that is sold for bunk beds and it includes the "bunkie board" with the mattress. I am glad that you enjoyed yourselves in Ohio's Vacationland!

Place was absolutely filthy!

  • 1 of 5

Save your money and stay someplace else! We spent the first 2 hours of our vacation cleaning just so we could stay there. There were dirty dishes in the cabinets, dirty sheets, dirt and grime under and behind the bed. Grease splattered all over the stove. The dirt and dust hanging off of the air conditioner was absolutely disgusting. The white door had blackened dirty hand prints all around the knob. I am no way a clean freak but I've stayed in WWII army barracks that were cleaner than this place.

The place was definitely dated. I could live with that if it was CLEAN!!!!!!! The ad is advertised as having a working dryer but on arrival, we found a note taped to the dryer door. The note let us know that the lint trap was cracked and to use the dryer at our own discretion. Upon inspecting the "crack", I found that the entire lint trap cover was broken off leaving at least a dozen sharp edges to catch your cloths. I tested it with a couple old t-shirts I had brought to sleep in and within 5 minutes, the shirts had gotten caught and ripped. The dryer was completely unusable, not to mention the dirt, rust and filth on top of the dryer!!!!

We tried to find another place to stay but unfortunately under such short notice we were unable. We checked in on a Monday. On Wednesday, someone tried to walk into the apartment. Luckily I had the door locked. When I answered the door, lo and behold, it was the cleaner who finally showed up 2 days after we had already been there.

My wife and I emailed Marie when we arrived back home. I courteously asked if we could have our cleaning fee back since we had to clean the apartment to even be able to stay there. Absolute radio silence!!! We have not heard a peep!!! I have pictures of everything that I even offered to show. Unfortunately, HomeAway doesn't let you post pictures but if you are thinking of staying here please think again. This place was disgusting.

Owner's Response: The info letter sent prior to your stay asked to contact us immediately if there were concerns with the unit. If the place was so disgusting, I'm surprised that you waited until you stayed 4 days and five hours after you left our condo to send me an email asking for your cleaning fee back. If you would have contacted us upon arrival, we could have had our cleaning crew come back to address your concerns. You did send me an email 5 hours after you left the unit, and I asked that you forward the pictures so I could discuss with our cleaner and I would get back to you about the refund that you asked. There was no response from you . We take pride in our home, and we have had it rented this entire season, all the other guests have complimented our unit and thanked us for allowing them to stay. I'm sorry you did not feel the same way.

Anytime is a wonderful time to discover time to discover Port Clinton, the fishing is great and the bird watching is nationally acclaimed, conveniently located between Cleveland and Toledo on the southern shores of Lake Erie: The hour it takes to get from those big cities takes you light years away from the hustle and bustle of your everyday life. It's a trip that transports you to a relaxing and fun loving place close to home. Great for a few day getaway or a week long vacation, there's enough to do in Ottawa County to keep you as busy or relaxed as you want to be. The area lends itself to so many different types of fun. It can be a romantic getaway with wineries and lighthouses; there's live entertainment at Put-in-bay and Mr. Ed's; for the nature lover there's bird watching at National wildlife preserve and the best walleye fishing around. There's great family fun with Cedar Point amusement park, several water parks, putt-putt golf and swimming. Come discover Port Clinton

Other Activities: swimming, beach
