I've been renting my condos since 1995 and we presently rent 5 condos on the Beautiful Waters of Lake Erie in Port Clinton. Customer service is my priority and you can view Dozens of customer testimonials and comments on this and our other sites. We have many loyal customers that come back year after year because they feel they are getting the best Value for their money with the most Luxury while still feeling at home in our condos. I have personally decorated all of our condos, not as rentals but as I would my own home. I spare no expense to give you the best and most luxurious settings you will ever experience.

LARAIN MAY purchased this condo in 2010

Why LARAIN MAY chose Port Clinton

I already own a condo directly on Lake Erie and I loved the beautiful Laid Back Harbor setting of this condo while still having a view of Lake Erie. The complex is smaller with only 95 condos and much more relaxing than most with many more condos. The other owners are very friendly and accommodating. This is the only complex I know in Port Clinton that has 3 Community Gas Grills that anyone can use. It also has Charcoal grills if you BYO charcoal. The pool is only 2 years old and is Award Winning with a relaxing Hot Tub. There is a Beautiful Cabana at pool side with picnic tables or you can picnic in the grass with many tables and grills.

You can bring your own boat and park it in your own dock just outside your condo for an optional fee, or you can fish off the dock.

Beautiful condo with easy walk to historic Port Clinton

  • 5 of 5

Great place for my wife and I along with my daughter her husband and 2 children

The 6 of us were very comfortable there and the location is fabulous with just a short Walt over the draw bridge to old Port Clinton

The condo itself was immaculate as were the grounds. The grandkids loved the pool which was also professionally maintained

Thanks Larain for a great visit

Clean condo with nice pool but not a true 2 bedroom & neighbors very unfriendly

  • 3 of 5

Larain was very easy to work with. The condo was very clean with plenty of things included like towels, sheets, paper towels, etc. The pool is also very nice with a nice shaded area with tables. Great location, close to everything. A couple of negatives... one being that it is not a true two bedroom as listed on the property details. There is one bedroom and a very small sun patio with sliding glass doors that has a twin size roll away bed in the corner and a futon that just lays out to lay on. In the details it says 2 bedroom and does show pictures, but it is very deceiving. We would have never stayed here had we known considering we had 4 adults and 2 children in the small condo. We drove 4 hours to discover this (with a 3 year old and a 4 month old). Another downfall (and this is not the owner's fault), but just so everyone is aware when booking...the neighbors that have condos that own on the property were extremely unfriendly. One resident went banging on all of the doors (very intoxicated), at 8:30 at night because someone left a stroller at the bottom of the stairs while she was unpacking her car. They clearly do not like having renters on their properties. If you are looking for a place to just sleep where you aren't there a lot and don't have a lot of adults with you this will be fine. Or if you have older kids that wouldn't mind sleeping in the sun room.

Owner's Response: Hi Laura, We could have made the Harbor/Bedroom strictly a Bedroom if we simply put only a Bed in it because according to Real Estate Definition of a Bedroom, it has a Door, a Window, and a Closet. We wanted to give our guests the ability to use it during the day for lounging by the Beautiful Harbor and watch the Boats coming and going so we have a Bistro Table and chairs for the day and a Futon which can be used for Seating or Sleeping and a roll-away bed. Using the Legal Definition of a Bedroom, my condo is in fact a 2 bedroom condo. I knew I would get a bad review from you since you complained as soon as you arrived. You didn't think your 2 small children would be able to sleep since there weren't "two bedrooms" and it wouldn't be dark enough for their naps. You also talked about leaving and going home, then you thought you could figure it out. I'm sorry, I've never had a complaint about the neighbors please read the previous reviews and you would see. Larain

Recommend this Condo and Port Clinton for a great vacationing experience.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was conveniently set up for us. It was clean and although I didn't open it, the wine was a nice touch. The pool was clean and the hot tub was clean. Would definitely stay there again. Ms. May was so nice and accommodating. The coupons left for events was also a nice touch. Other than the bridge being out, we enjoyed our stay and the location was perfect.
