"We had a great time in this beautifully remodeled condo. In the mornings i walked to a little coffee shop about a mile away that is hidden on the outside of the town. We took the Jet Express (which is just a very short walk from the condo) to Put-In Bay. The condo itself is a stone's throw from the waters edge. Grill is right outside around the back. We were there on the off season, but still found plenty to keep busy. Thanks, we will be back."Guest: Brian D. Date of Stay: September 2014 Review Submitted: September 19, 2014View listing

"Our stay at this condo was wonderful. The location is great and the condo itself was perfect for our family vacation. We took a walk to the Jet Express for a day trip to Put-In-Bay, spent one morning at the African Safari, and spent many hours relaxing at the pool and beach. We will definitely use this condo again for our next trip to Port Clinton."Guest: Mark Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: August 19, 2014View listing
