Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: My name is Kevin and my lovely wife and life partner is Anita. We purchased the house initially as an investment property to rehab and sale 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 many months of aggresive rehab therapy afterwards. This whole experience has definitely given me a greater appreciation for the hard work that 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 5% discount to anyone who books a stay with us that is a doctor, a nurse, a physical, occupational or speech therapist, 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

Why the Owner Chose Sandusky, OH, USA:
Beautiful & Spacious older home with lots of Charm and for the the Travelers On-the Go! This home is does not sit on the water with the beautiful view 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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Close to Cedar Point, Shopping , Restaurants, Beaches, Yacht Club ,Jet Express/Ferry Boat to the Islands (Put-in-Bay,Kelly's Island...), Farmer's Market, Historic Downtown Sandusky and several other fun interesting places to see. Upscale Spacious Older House + Great Location + Fair Pricing = BEST VALUE IN SANDUSKY!!
