Two Bedroom Two Bath Condo On Shores Of Lake Erie. Private Beach & Indoor Pool
Kathy and Bill Bockanic
About Kathy and Bill Bockanic
We are native to Ohio and have been talking about purchasing a waterfront property for years. We love the Outer Banks, but the 12 hour drive is a killer. It's all about view for us so when we saw the view from the unit, the quality and luxury the condominium has to offer we were sold. Our children are on their own now but we still love it when they return home and spend time with us at the condo. My mother also spends quite a bit of time with us and we are happy, at 94, that she is able to come to the condo and enjoy. We are dog lovers, as you will see from our décor, but the policy is that pets are not allowed when people rent - sorry. This home has been a dream for us and we are happy to share it with you. Our intent is to make it comfortable and hopefully an easy place to relax. We hope you enjoy your stay.
Kathy and Bill Bockanic purchased this Condo in 2014
Why Kathy and Bill Bockanic chose Geneva-on-the-Lake
We stayed at Lake Erie Vista in September, 2014 and immediately fell in love with the view, quality and amenities found at the condominium. The first time we saw the unit with the tangerine walls we were like 'well these will have to go', but they are staying and we think add to the beachy character of the unit. We completely furnished the unit in the last few months so all furniture, bedding, etc. is brand new for the 2015 rental season. We are planning on renting the unit for several years and eventually using the unit as our second home. We selected furniture with the intent of making the condo homey and most of all comfortable. This unit has WiFi, upgraded cable with 4 premium channels (HBO, Showtime, Cinemax, and Stars), a bluray player and a foosball table just to provide a little family-friendly competition. The condo has furnished exercise equipment in the lobby area overlooking the pool and beach.
What makes this Condo unique
Lake Erie Vista is an upscale, luxurious well thought-out condominium. We are on the 4th floor. The view is exquisite and it is so much fun to watch the boats and ore ships moving across the lake. The higher up you are in the condo the quieter the outside noise seems to be. The balcony provides a relaxing area to sit and watch the kids play below or sip on a glass of wine as the sun sets over the lake. It is hard to believe that you are in Ohio when you look out at the lake. The view truly looks ocean front and that can't be beat. The volleyball nets are usually set up for everyone's enjoyment and the fire pits are also for the renters. The store across the street sells the wood for the fire pits. Nothing like smore to end the evening. We purposely bought a large sectional sofa so all could be comfy and stretch out when relaxing in the evening. We also decided to go with a premium cable package so that stations would be in high definition and there would be an assortment of movies available for our renters. We have an electric fireplace with several heat options and color options. This makes for fun and cozy winter nights. The master bedroom is furnished with cherry furniture, including a dresser, armoire, two night stands and a comfortable new mattress. The second bedroom is furnished with a dresser, night stand, small table and a comfortable new mattress. We typically cook when we come to the condo so we have tried to stock the kitchen with what we need when we are there to cook and bake. The unit has beautiful granite countertops in the kitchen and bathrooms. The washer and dryer are full size and the laundry room also has a laundry tub. PLEASE LET US KNOW IF THERE IS ANYTHING WE HAVE OVERLOOKED AND WE WILL DO OUR BEST TO RECIFY THE SITUATION OR ADD THE ITEM FOR THE NEXT GUESTS.
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
The condo was perfect for our weekend get-away. Very relaxing even just sitting on the balcony listening to the water.
Close to many of the wineries we wanted
The condo was well furnished and the king size bed was very comfortable.
We would definitely rent again.
The condo we rented was perfect and extremely comfortable. It was very clean and in excellent condition including the furniture, bedding, towels and appliances. The view of the lake from the condo was simply lovely. In addition to the condo being clean and well maintained all the public areas of the condominium building , including the pool, were also well maintained and clean.
Thank you so much for your review. We are happy you enjoyed your stay and liked the condo and building. The Association works very hard to be sure the building, pool, and beach are well maintained. We also always try to have the condo well equipped, clean and comfortable so while you are there you can relax and enjoy your vacation.
