Excellent location and roomy!

  • 4 of 5

This property is very close to Cedar point, grocery stores, and eateries. There is a state park at the end of the street. Water is a short walk away. Updated flat screen tv. Very roomy. Good neighborhood to walk dogs because it has minimum traffic.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful place. The location couldn't be more convenient for Cedar Point. The place is charming and well furnished for any size group. Kitchen is well stocked for cooking and a grill in the back yard with a table and a nice area to relax. Capt Gary and Beth were great and very attentive to anything we needed. Each bedroom has everything you need plus extra's. Lots of room for everyone! This will be our "goto" place!

A little disappointing

  • 3 of 5

This house is perfect if you are planning a trip to Cedar Point. Excellent location. Five minutes away. Could not have been better in this regard. Allowing pets was extremely appreciated.

However...If I rent a house or stay at a hotel I expect certain things: Like sufficient toilet paper - albeit, there was "A" roll but for many people, that didn't last very long. A half a roll of paper towels; and 1/4 of a bottle of liquid hand soap. The owners had a sign that stated that if you used the dishes, be sure to wash and dry them or you will forfeit your deposit. However, there was no dish soap, no rag or sponge to wash them with, no dish strainer, and only 2 butter knives and 4 forks. Yet, the ad says that the house sleeps 10. We had a large party so we had to take turns using the silverware. No kleenex. I had to go out, during my vacation, and buy household/cleaning supplies. The house appeared to be clean but I inadvertently spilled some water on the kitchen floor. I went to wipe it up and the paper towel was black. It took 3 washings to get the floor clean. The same thing happened in the living room. Oops! a little spill. Paper towel came up filthy. That was pretty unsettling. And yet they charge a separate cleaning fee. I think that meant just washing the laundry (which I would have done myself if they had any laundry detergent). Check out time was 10am. At 9:30am. Captain Gary showed up. He left after a few minutes and then (I assume) Beth appeared by 9:45am, who sat in her car with quite an unhappy look on her face. She gave up waiting and came in even though we were still trying to load everything into the car. I will admit that we did not complete our task until 10:11 am.

I have rented in Sandusky in the past, but because of lack of availability, I had to find another option and this house was the only thing available. Had something else been available I probably would have made another choice because of the excessive fees they charge. What in the world am I, an out-of-state customer, paying a tax for? And the deposit is considerably higher than charged by others who rent out their homes. Yikes! I felt like I was being fee'd to death.

The location is worth 5 stars, but lack of basic essentials and unfriendliness was very disappointing.

Owner's Response: Denise. So sorry you were not pleased with we live right next door and said to you upon your arrival if you need anything come and ask we would have been more than happy to oblige. Unfortunately with that many people coming in and out of house I'm sure you may have found an area on carpet especially if you spilled something (we plan on new ) next season! As to your departure I'm sorry but our times are clearly stated and I nor my husband would show up early to make you feel rushed .....but we have people checking in and have to stay on a time frame to accommodate next tenant. As for cleaning dishes there are dish cloths with the towels.Again I am sorry your time with us was less than you expected . Beth

Perfect place for Cedar Point stay!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect. Close to Cedar Point, clean and fit our family perfectly. After a long day of walking around Cedar Point the close proximity was wonderful. We were "home" in less than 5 minutes. Bay area is beautiful. Hiking less than a block away was so great. And Beth and Capt. Gary were quick to respond to any questions I had. Thank you for a very memorable vacation!

Great location, friendly owners

  • 5 of 5

Six adults stayed here with plenty of room. The home was as advertised and clean. The location was great, a short driving distance to just about anything you'd want to get to. About a block away there are great hiking trails for bird watching, etc, just bring bug spray! This would be very convenient if you're planning to go to Cedar Point. Captain Gary and Beth were very pleasant and accommodating, even giving us suggestions on boat rentals.
