Excellent Stay in Sandusky!

  • 5 of 5

We were visiting Sandusky for the Cedar Point Triathlon September 9 -12. Capt. Gary and Beth were most welcoming and we enjoyed our stay in their clean, spacious home. We are a family of five and it was great to have so many seating options in the living room. The beds were comfortable and the location was close and convenient to Cedar Point. It was a hot weekend and the air conditioning kept the house cool. Thank you for an enjoyable stay!

Second stay just as lovely

  • 5 of 5

My family just returned from our second late-August stay at Beth and Captain Gary's house. I'm recommending it to friends and extended family now. The location couldn't be any closer to Cedar Point, and the house was even more immaculate than last year. Plenty of room and great for pets. Thank you, Beth and Captain Gary!

Affordable and convenient to Cedar Point

  • 4 of 5

This affordable house was super convenient to Cedar Point on a quiet street, and close to many of the other Sandusky attractions and amenities. Had plenty of room to comfortably sleep our family of 4. Having central air downstairs and room AC upstairs was great and kept us comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed. Linens and towels were clean. We didn't use the marina facilities, but they are literally steps away right next to the house and would be a plus for boaters. The owners were very responsive through the booking and deposit refund process.

As pointed out by some of the other renters from this summer, the downstairs master bedroom does not have two twins pushed together to make a king - it was a single queen. The beds and furniture are a bit worn but adequate. The grill was unusable, and the WiFi was extremely slow and unreliable.

Overall, this is not a fancy place, but is a good value and will serve you well as your base of operations for a Cedar Point vacation.

Lots of potential

  • 4 of 5

We stayed the first week in August and we are glad we did.

However, we were a bit disappointed however in the condition of the furniture. If they would spend around $1500 to update the furniture (not just old and outdated but musty smelling as well) and decor, they could charge more for the rental easily and the pay for the updates in no time!!

Besides that, it was great!! Close to everything we needed and very quiet--which was welcoming at the end of the day.

Well cared for older home....excellent location to Cedar Point...

  • 3 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. Close to local attractions. The three seperate bedrooms were what I needed as we brought along the parents and grandkids. The bathroom was workable but a little unusual (no mirror above sink for instance). My only real complaint is that the matresses were horrible. Can feel every spring in the matress.

Affordable Vacation Rental

  • 3 of 5

Pros: This house is priced cheap, close to Cedar Point, and within walking distance of a McDonalds and Dairy Queen. Capt. Gary and Beth are very nice and helpful.

Cons: Only one bathroom, the grill does not work, the cable and internet is temperamental.

Great rental if you are on a tight budget.
