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.

Gorgeous well kept home
Spacious and beautiful. Plenty of accommodations for everybody. Communication with the owner was great. Needs bigger outside garbage cans, but I wouldn’t dare call it a complaint.
1at family vacation
Our family had a great time and the house was beautiful. My only issue was the check out time on the website said 1pm but the rental agreement said
11am. I had only looked at the app on my phone prior and we were very rushed when the cleaning lady showed up at 11:15 to tell us we had to check out at 11
Amy contacted me a day later after she submitted these comments and mentioned that her phone app (not the website) said that the check out time was 1:00 pm which caused a misunderstanding and she offered a nice apology for not checking the website and that is why she had the wrong information.
My housekeepers work on a tight schedule in order to get my large house and apartment thoroughly cleaned and presentable in a relatively small window of time before the next group arrives at 4:00 pm.
Typically, when a family doesn't vacate the property by 11:00 am I will deduct a late fee from their security deposit. However, in this situation I did not make any deductions.
It was close to all : church, rehearsal dinner and reception. Worked out perfectly!
The house was even nicer than expected! Plenty of room to visit with extended family from out of town! Highly recommended for families traveling to the Sandusky area!
Great house. Perfect for fishing get away. Great for those who love to cook.
Spacious,clean and great outside fireplace.
Overall our stay was enjoyable. The house is large and there was plenty of room for our kids to play. It's very clean Although old (some peeling paint on the walls)
There were a couple of surprises tho, the house sleeps 16 however that's with 4 pull our sofas making the majority of the sleeping spaces. 2 of the pull outs are in the Florida room which was FREEZING and unusable even with space heaters running... so it's definitly not useable as sleeping space in the winter.
There are multiple radiators without covers which are HOT and we had to keep a close eye to make sure our kids didn't get close to them.
I went into the storage room to get extra bedding and found bugs on the bedding and in the storage space. So needless to say we didn't use any extra bedding and slept without comforters.
For the price the space can't be beat... just bring your own comforters.
Well taken care of
Enjoyed the stay, House had everything we needed, owner was very attentive to our needs.
Check -in is 4:00 pm / Check-out is 11:00 am
