Why Todd Shorb chose Ohio

We purchased our unit because it was an old building they rehabbed and its location is just down the street so we can go there and enjoy being on the water whenever we choose.

What makes this condo unique

The building has character and was well preserved when they turned the building into luxury condominiums.The building is located right on lake Erie but does has an awesome pool and is located downtown where there are no hotels and traffic just an old city feel.It is very close to cedar Point and you do not have to be in a traffic jam for an hour getting there from our location.There are plenty of parks walking distance to cook out,play with the kids or even fish.You do have plenty of choices for eating out and many with a view of the lake.

Everything was great. Only improvement would have been higher quality cooking utensils.

Clean, spacious

  • 4 of 5

The condo was very clean and spacious, plenty of room for the 5 of us. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking and eating implements. The bathroom towels were the fluffiest things ever. Bedrooms have no windows, which is good or bad depending on what you like for sleep (we loved it). The location is great, right next to ferry and walking distance to restaurants and a lovely park. Our main issue was the lack of privacy because the blinds on the large window in the living room were missing half the slats, so everyone who walked into the building could see in. The owner assured me it would be fixed right after our departure. Also, the double bed mattresses were rather uncomfortable.

The Perfect Place to Stay in Sandusky

  • 5 of 5

If you are going to visit Cedar Point and want somewhere nice to stay, this apartment has everything you need. Our group of 9 stayed here so comfortably. Everything you could want is within minutes of this location. We were only 5 minutes from the park. The beds were super comfortable and I loved the fact that we were right there and did not have to want for anything. Our group of teens enjoyed the pool in the evenings and during the day we walked the town, which was perfect. The house is well maintained and super clean. It was exactly what we needed. If I visit Sandusky again, I will definitely be staying here.

Place not cared for like a VRBO should be. Many issues...

  • 2 of 5

We stayed in this condo for 8 days. It was just "OK." Not 5 star and not 1 star, but maybe 2.5 stars. I listed the reasons below.

This place needs the following:

-Seating for 8-10: The place is described as suitable for 10 people, yet, it doesn't comfortably accommodate 10. A sectional and chair would be perfect. There's plenty of room for it. The current couch set needs to be replaced.

-More shelf/ drawer space in bedrooms. There's not enough for 4 people in each room. One large dresser in each room would be better than what is in there now.

-Stand alone pantry for food. There is plenty of room for one.

-Working blinds. Guests are living in fishbowl right by the main entrance to Lofts. I had to hand turn each blind connector to an angled point so we at least had a semblance of privacy. We didn't touch them after that. The drawstrings didn't work.

-Hangers (we bought 36 and left them there)

-Maybe some artwork on the walls? Would look a little more inviting and not so bare.

-Switch room with king bed to one of the smaller rooms and put 2 double beds in big room- bigger bathroom for more people. Just makes sense- better use of space for the most people.

-Enough towels for 10 people- some folks need 2 towels.

-Microwave is dangerous. The door is held on with duct tape, it won't stay shut while it's cooking. You have to hold door- microwaves escaping.

-Refrigerator has a broken rail in the door storage.

-Furniture is remnicient of a college student's first apartment- i.e. garage sale finds. Not something VRBO vacationers are wanting or expecting.

-Several light bulbs out and the master lamp was broken.

-Carpet is old, smelly, stained and worn.

The whole place needs some maintenance and TLC- it has potential, but it is obviously not cared for.

-We visited another Chesapeake Loft where our friends were staying. It was also a three bedroom, but this one had three families staying there, it has more than enough room and seating, the furniture was nice, the floors were beautiful, the kitchen was in working order, and the owners definitely put some effort into it.

-Had to buy paper towels (2.39), toilet paper (5.49), hangers (6.00 for 36), over the door towel bar for small bathroom (8.49), light bulbs (4.99), hand soap for kitchen (.79), Kleenex (1.79), and sponges (2.99) total of $32.91

Owner's Response: We are glad to have all guests stay with us. The condo sleeps a max of 10. It is at capacity with that amount of people. There is no space for a table of 10. There are dressers in each room. This guest should know that if you are going to have 10 ppl in a unit you will be responsible for buying some necessities and you will need to do laundry especially when staying a week. We appreciate there stay but they must know what to expect when travelling with a large group. Thank you

The condo was tidy and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The condo was close to Cedar point. We used the pool every day, it was clean and pool water was perfect temp. There were small issues, one being the microwave door being broken. Second being the sofa, it appeared it hadn't been vacuumed in quite a while, lots of crumbs and items under the cushions. Third, a lot of noise in the master bedroom. It sounded like someone was bouncing a basketball either against our wall or above us. We bought a fan to help block out the noise. Maybe having a fan in the condo would help. Fourth, the blinds are broken. It was impossible to close them for privacy. None of these things bothered us much but good to address. We would definitely stay here again. Todd was very responsive with questions :) On a side note, down town Sandusky is beautiful!!
