Overview

About the property

Easily Observable Value! Bigger Size + Great Rates & Amenities + BEST LOCATION!!

IT JUST MAKES GOOD DOLLARS AND SENSE!

When Compared With The Rest, this large contemporary upscale home is an EASILY OBSERVABLE VALUE for your money.

Why stay in a cramped hotel or a highly overpriced rental home full of rocking chairs, quilts and doilies when you can relax and unwind in our spacious vacation house and apartment with your family and friends at a fraction of the cost.

The vacation house is available for groups up to 17 people but if the size of your traveling group is 18 - 25 people then the 2 bedroom studio apartment can be available to handle the overflow.

shops and restaurants and where the Jet Express Ferry will whisk you away to Kelley's Island or Put-In Bay!

Now you can Vacation in STYLE and COMFORT with plenty of room so that everyone doesn’t get in each other’s way and you can still be friends at the end of the vacation ☺,

The house is nestled in a quiet residential neighborhood. No, you won't get a stunning view of the lake from the front door but you will still see it a few minutes away and besides if you are more interested in having a large, clean, beautiful, comfortable and roomy place to stay so you can stretch out and relax when you get back from a vigorous day of fun activities, you can’t go wrong.

About Kevin Parrish

My name is Kevin and my lovely wife, best friend and business partner is Anita. We purchased the house initially as an investment property to rehab and sell it. Shortly after purchasing it I suffered a near fatal stroke at work which had me in the critical care unit at the hospital for over 6 weeks and over a year of aggressive rehab therapy afterwards. With the support of family and friends and great care givers I regained my ability to move, walk and talk again as if the stroke never happened!

This whole experience has definitely given me a greater appreciation for the hard work that doctors, nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and speech therapists do everyday in treating stroke patients and helping them to live a better life. I would like to say "Thank You" by offering a 10% discount on your headcount fee to anyone who books a stay with us that is a doctor, a nurse, a physical, occupational or speech therapist, hospice worker or personal trainer. I long for the day when we won't ever need them anymore.

After a failed attempt at selling the house to help pay off a mountain of medical bills we decided to change direction and use it as a vacation rental and it all just fell into place. The neighbors have been great (The Austin's!) and I have met some wonderful people in Sandusky and we are happy to share our home with you. Take Care Everyone

Kevin Parrish purchased this house in 2009

Why Kevin Parrish chose Sandusky

Beautiful & Spacious older home with lots of Charm and for the the Travelers On-the Go! Close to Everything! All the Conveniences of Home!

Even though, this vacation home is does not sit on the water with the beautiful view you can still see it if you drive a couple minutes around the corner. But If it did, It could easily bring in 3 times the asking price. The current pricing is an excellent value for travelers because of the comfortable furnishings and amenities, beautiful artwork, and all of the space that you get. The large rooms really allow you and your guests to stretch out and relax and not get in each other's way. The house is situated inside of a small residential neighborhood that has a lot of nearby neighbors that are elderly or working people who have to get up early each day and go to work early. For these reasons we are keenly interested in renting to families or travelers that have no intentions of having loud parties or disruptive outdoor activities during the early - late evening hours.

What makes this house unique

BEST VALUE IN SANDUSKY!! + VERY VERY Close to Cedar Point!

Notes:
Great get away for the entire family. Much better than staying in a pricey hotel. Close to Cedar Point. *** Please be mindful that the house is in the middle of a residential neighborhood so loud gatherings inside/outside during the night are prohibited. Many of the nearby residents are senior citizens, so we ask that you be mindful of this in regards to keeping the noise to a minimum while conducting outdoor activities in the evening. *** Safety & Security comes first.Even though the community is quiet and safe and we have never had a problem. We decided to take all measures necessary to make our guests feel comfortable and secure while staying with us.There are steel security doors on every exterior door. Ample security lighting all around the property and every exterior door and walkway has a security camera.

Great stay, great house!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house to accommodate a few families for my sister's wedding weekend. It was so much better than multiple hotel rooms and allowed for so much quality time together. The house was well furnished and we had everything we needed. The game room was a hit for kids and adults, especially when the adults challenged the littles to a Pacman tournament! Kevin was extremely helpful and quick to respond to any question or request. We couldn't be happier with our choice in rental and would definitely stay again.

THe decorations are a bit weird, but the space was perfect for our group of friends!

  • 4 of 5

The space was perfect for the amount of people we had and the back yard and patio is large enough to spend a lot of quality time in!

Owner's Response: We most certainly take this comment as a complement. We wanted our home to be more of a non-traditional experience. So many homes that we have personally visited have a boring cookie cutter look and feel. So we decided to add all different types of artwork and decorations, some are traditional and some are quirky, so that the home can appeal to a variety of tastes. There is no main theme except to have fun and enjoy one another. Hope to see you again Next Year!! Kevin
