About Stacy Sohner

Paul and Stacy Sohner:

We are originally from Tucson, Arizona and moved to Columbus, Ohio (Go Bucks!) eleven years ago after traveling and working throughout the United States. We have been married for 17 years and have 2 wonderful children!

Stacy Sohner purchased this condo in 2007

Why Stacy Sohner chose Ohio

Water Ways is our home away from home! We love to escape and go to the lake for some rest and relaxation! We chose Green Cove for its close proximity to all of the Lake Erie attractions, while still retaining the quiet resort community atmosphere! We enjoy the convenience of being so close to the marina and boat launch and having so many wonderful beaches to chose from! The kids love to go up to the lake, playing in the water, swimming in the pool and romping on the playground.

What makes this condo unique

Enjoy an award winning pool, tennis courts, catch and release fishing ponds, boat docks and onsite fishing charters. We are the only condo in Green Cove that can still offer you access to private beaches. We have the unique ability to offer our guest availability for up to 42 guest with our neighboring cottages!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I want to let you know we had a great time and enjoyed the condo. It was, as you promised it would be, VERY well stocked!! That’s a really nice plus that most places don’t have. We enjoyed using the bikes, the gas grill, the beach chair & umbrella and pool noodles. And we really appreciated (especially my wife,) the very well supplied kitchen (dishes, cups, utensils, etc.)! That made things so easy!! Thanks!!

We found the condo to be a good launching point for activities (Cedar Point, Beach, etc.) but also a great place just to hang out (pool, fishing, etc.) and we only wished we could have stayed longer! The week was over too soon!

Awesome weekend

  • 5 of 5

The unit was clean and exactly as advertised. It had everything we needed for our stay and more. We towed the boat up and took full advantage of the dock that comes with the unit. What do you say after a three day limit and the perfect place to stay? Thank you, we'll be back!

Great extended family trip

  • 5 of 5

Our family (3 adults and 5 children aged 13-19) had a great time. The unit had everything we needed. The kids loved the bikes and fishing poles. We all enjoyed the pool.

We've been to the area the past 16 summers but usually stay in Port Clinton. It was a nice change to be I. oak Harbor. We made quick trips to Toldeo for a mud hens game and spent a day at Maumee Bay state park.

We had a great time in a great place. Thanks for thinking of everything we would need! Looking forward to next year's vacation already!

Everything you need for a perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Water Ways for a long weekend and had a very enjoyable stay! From initial contact through follow-up after our stay, communication with Stacy was excellent. The condo was just as presented in description and pictures. Also, it was spotless! Everything was clean and comfortable to make us feel right at home for the long weekend. The surrounding area is beautiful and has plenty to keep you busy. We went boating, relaxed at the pool and even had dinner at the Mon Ami winery during our stay. I would highly recommend and will stay here again.

An exceptional and beautiful Green Cove condo with amazing customer service!

  • 5 of 5

I am another rental property owner in Green Cove (renowned for my "high expectations") and reserved this condo to accommodate overflow for a large gathering I host every year. Stacy was a pleasure to work with from beginning to end. She's a true professional who attends to all the details. Her communication was timely, helpful, and super polite. When I experienced an injury and was late in my responses to her, she was very compassionate, understanding and flexible. I could tell she understood the risk I was taking in putting my guests in her care and trusted she wasn't going to let me down. I was not disappointed. I received a call the day before arrival telling me that things were all set and making sure I had everything I needed, a follow-up call from her the day of arrival to ensure all was OK, and one immediately after check-out to see how things went. Stacy truly embraces the "guests not renters" motto and does all she can to ensure their experience is the best it can be. I can assure you, I will recommend her condos every time I need overflow.

The best testimony I can offer, though, is the email I received from the guests after their departure:

"Thanks again for hosting another awesome summer family gathering. We really appreciate you taking care of getting us the extra condo for the occasion. It's always special to come to the area, but having the "loft" condo made it even more comfortable as our numbers have increased so much. You did a great job picking a place! I admit I was relieved that we didn't have to replay the scenario from "nightmare condo" we used a few years back. This new place was fresh and welcoming, compared to that other dated, dirty and needing a lot of repair condo. This place was spotless! The furnishings were in great condition and functional, yet very "beach house" in style. Everyone loved the huge flat screen TV and "hangout" area upstairs. The changes to the kitchen that allowed for a full size stove and extra storage were really cool. Clean up was a cinch because the owner left notes on exactly what to do (and it helped that it started out so clean and we weren't cleaning other's messes like that other place). What an exceptional value. Please tell your neighbor how much we loved everything. I hope we can get this place again next year because it was just perfect. Close to your condos plus all the bells and whistles. As always, we appreciate all your hard effort to make our special weekend so great for everyone."

Don's Group

  • 5 of 5

The location was ideal for our needs. The condo was clean and fully equiped, we did not want for anything. Our group spent a couple days on Lake Erie fishing and the boat dock was a few minutes away. The condo amenities were great, barbecue grill, swimming pool right across the street, new freezer to freeze the fish we caught, the dishwasher (since the group was all men and we're not good at cleaning dishes), and the stacked clothes washer/dryer came in very handy since we got caught in a rain storm on the lake. Even the area deliveries were right to the door, including the taxi to Port Clinton, fish cleaning service, and the order in Pizza's. Our visit was only three days, but very comfortable and convenient. I plan on booking the condo again and would recommend it to anyone, especially someone interested in the Lake Erie southwestern area.

Clean and well-stocked Condo

  • 4 of 5

We had a pleasant stay in Oak Harbor. So very convenient to Magee Marsh and other birding hotspots.

The condo is sparkling clean, and had everything we needed for cooking meals for the two of us. The bed was comfy and the linens superior. Loved the big white fluffy towels! Thanks for putting so much thought into your place.
