Harborview 2nd floor condo on Catawba Island. See pictures for more details. DOCK INCLUDED with rental. Will rent dock separately if condo guests not using and can have access to pool and bath house.
Our unit has 1 bedroom with a queen bed. There is a loft above the kitchen and bathroom with a single bed and a queen in a cubby hole that the kids will love. It's kind of tight up there height wise but perfect for kids. Adults can sleep up there too but might have to duck a bit if they are over 6 feet tall. The living room can sleep an additional 3 people if desired. The couch pulls out into a king size bed with a comfy gel mattress with no bars. It's so comfy that my wife and I sleep there now instead of in the bedroom when we are there! There is one additional couch that folds down flat into a single bed.
There is 1 bathroom with a walk in shower, additional showers and changing areas are available across the marina in the boaters lounge and is accessible with the pool key. These showers and restrooms are maintained by the condo association for condo owners and guests only and they are kept immaculate and sanitary.
The living room and bedroom are newly carpeted with ultra soft thick frieze carpet. There is a dining set with 4 chairs off the living room. Appliances include a flat top range, fridge, dishwasher, garbage disposal, washer, and dryer.
The balcony includes a chaise lounge, 2 adirondack chairs, an outdoor loveseat and an electric grill. The balcony also has a remote control canopy that is essential for blocking out the hot sun. Trust me when I say that you cannot sit out on the decks at Come Sail Away during the morning and early afternoon and be comfortable without this. Only a few units have these and ours is one. The view is very pretty overlooking the marina and up West Harbor out towards the lake.
There are 2 tvs with Sony Vue TV service. One big flatscreen in the living room and one small flatscreen in the bedroom. There is condo provided wi-fi. There is a Bose sound dock that fits an I-pod. It has an RCA jack that fits any other music device with a compatible RCA input.
There is a brand new pool, hot tub, and kiddie splash pad. A 30 foot boat dock is included with rental. The unit is on the second floor so you won't hear footsteps above you. This also allows better balcony views and more balcony privacy. Unit also has keyless entry with a coded keypad lock. This makes coming and going much easier for everyone since no key is involved as well as no wasted time checking in!
WHY OUR CONDO-
Come sail away is in the perfect location for someone wanting to vacation in the area. You are 30 minutes from Cedar Point, 5 minutes from the Miller boat ferry to Put-in-Bay/South Bass Island, 15 minutes to the ferry to Kelly's Island, 10 minutes to East Harbor State park and it's best in the area public beach, 15 minutes to Marblehead light house, 5 minutes to the famous Mon Ami restaurant/bar/winery, 30 minutes from Magee Marsh nature preserve, and only 1/2 mile from the Catawba Island Township public free boat ramp on West Harbor where you can keep your trailer during your stay.
Winter season note: Please take note of this if you are booking during the winter and early spring. The porch furniture is stored inside behind the fold down couch and in the closet by the deck. As such, it clutters the look a bit and takes away some of the closet storage. All the beds are still available though. We don't pay for cable during the winter either, sometimes they don't turn it off but if they do you will have to watch over the air tv which can be spotty. Finally, due to infrequent renting in winter we don't keep the heat up to save on heating costs. As such, please make arrangements to come in and turn the heat up from 45 degrees then go do something to give the place time to warm to room temperature. It takes about a half hour.
