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.

Great stay

  • 4 of 5

The condo was excellent. Shower head could be better, but other than that, it was a perfect place to base operations at the Lake for a week.

Great Condo Near the Beach

  • 5 of 5

The condo was beautiful, the view of the lake port was great, and the stay was wonderful. Very updated condo, furniture, kitchen amenities, bathroom, everything was great! Beach across the street was great, small, but we were mostly in the water when we were out there which was all we needed. The owner was very informative of the many things to do around Port Clinton, would definitely go back!

Beautiful high-standard Condo

  • 5 of 5

Loved my stay here, actually I was gob-smacked at the high standard: well equipped, very clean, comfortable and cosy accom, I could live here all year! Well-maintained pool & hot tub and picnic/bbq areas. Strolling distance to Doc's Beach House and Mr. Eds, and ferry to Put in Bay. I would highly recommend this condo, it's a notch above the usual vacation rentals, and I will certainly be returning.
