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 condo has all you need along with a great view. The enclosed sun porch with a view of Lake Erie is great for kicking back with a great book or a second bedroom. We travel to the ocean often but needed a close to home quick get away this year and this was perfect. The small playground was great for our 5 yr. old and we all enjoyed the very nice pool area. Take in Bootleggers and Mr. Eds restraunts we had great food at both and enjoyed the short walk to Jet Express for a day at Put in Bay. The Safari Drive Thru is a must with kids go early so animals are hungary but we really wanted to do it again. Farm Markets are a must great fresh produce and this location is great for getting to everything (included the Popcorn Factory!!) This place is very clean and well kept although on the third floor it offered such a great view it was worth the steps!!

Thanks for a great family vacation!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words. Thanks also for the the leads on area restaurants and activities. We truly love the Port Clinton area and are excited to share it with our guests. Our family has spent so many wonderful days at Lake Erie fishing and swimming, at Cedar Point, African Lion Safari, Put in Bay, the Marblehead lighthouse and just watching the sunsets that we feel honored to share our lakefront home with others, so they too can create happy memories and strengthen family bonds. To achieve this, we strive to provide a quality clean unit that can be enjoyed by all ages. The playstation II console in the bedroom has games rated "E" for everyone, so parents don't have to worry about the contents of the games. We have puzzles for quiet family time and books to read on the beach. Summer may be the peak season, but Marblehead Peninsula is great, even in the off-season, there's walleye fishing in the spring and perch in the fall. There are several marinas that offer dockage for minimal fees and walkon fishing charters Haunted weekends at Cedar Point are until the end of October. The indoor waterparks are open year round and the changing scenery is spectacular. How about bird watching in the spring? Maggee Marsh is nationally known for the several species that are found there, and on New Year's Eve, there's the Great Walleye Drop! Come discover Port Clinton, throughout the year!

Not a bad little place

Nice view. Short walk to the Jet Express. A little dated. Beds were not comfortable at all. Decent for the price.

Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect place to stay when visiting the Port Clinton area. The condo is clean, comfortable and very spacious. It is well equipped and nicely furnished and the Wi-Fi is a bonus. The view of Lake Erie is wonderful! The owners made check in very easy with good instructions and access to parking and pool passes. There are a lots of great places to visit nearby, like Marblehead, East Harbor State Park and Lakeside. You can also take a ferry boat to Put-in -Bay or Kelley's Island. We were lucky to find such a nice place to stay for our Lake Erie getaway.

All I needed - great hosts

  • 5 of 5

I needed a place to stay for my sisters wedding and wanted to be right in Port Clinton. This condo was everything as advertised.

We had 5 of us stay comfortably with the way the rooms were set up. Everything was exactly as advertised - no surprises. The condo was clean, and the amenities were all that was required and more than we needed as unfortunately we were not going to be able to "hang out" at the condo area much with the time frames. However, the condo was right next to the yacht club and right on the water as they show on the pics. Given the time you could take a nice walk and explore the water area which my kids (grown) all wished we had some time to do. We were there weekend of Sept 17th 2016 and what was great and interesting tidbit was that the pool was still open - I don't know when they close but it was noticeable that people even in the rain the one day we were there during the day - people were swimming - so it is nice to find a place where the pool schedule follows the weather - which this year has been hot.

Marie and Nick were awesome - I needed to adjust my reservation as soon as I submitted it via VRBO. They were very accommodating and we were able to work out the details. They knew we were there for a wedding and actually purchased and put up some hanging hooks the weekend prior so we would have additional room for hanging clothes which was awesome. The key process and check in/ check out was painless. It was very easy to get ahold of Marie and Nick as needed, and I felt that if I had some additional questions or concerns that I would be able to get ahold of them without a problem. They provided all contact info and prior to being there I had no issue getting ahold of them. The locale of the condo was perfect. For my needs it was 5-10 minutes for everywhere I needed to go. For others there for more vacation type things - it is right next to the ferry and all so it seemed like that would be a no brainer as then you just have to walk where you want to go. Could not have been more perfect. Everything in the condo was in working order. No issues.

Port Clinton trip

  • 4 of 5

The location was wonderful! The pool was open even though it was after Labor Day .

There's a lot to see and do in the area, Marie had a notebook there that listed things to do and places to eat.

She was quick to respond to any questions that we had while we were there .

I realize that this was the end of the probably busy summer season - but the condo could have been cleaner.

Marie had ample supplies there if you needed anything, the kitchen was well stocked. We didn't mind the third floor set up because the views were beautiful!

There were only a few other people staying in the condos but they were all very friendly and helpful .

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
