About Bill

I am a retired Professional with 45 years in Aviation who has stayed in many rental properties in the U.S. and other countries. This experience has been invaluable to me in deciding what to look for in a property and what to supply in that property to make it one of your favorite and most memorable places to stay. I strive to provide the Finest Accommodations for my customers that money can buy. Using my experience with other rentals I try to equip my condos with all the amenities that I would need and more. My Fiance' Larain is a Fabulous interior Decorator and her expertise is evident throughout all 6 of our condos. We truly hope you will enjoy your stay and want to come back in the future. We want to be your Home away from Home. I will strive to make your stay with us an Easy, Comfortable, Enjoyable and Professional experience.

Why Bill chose Ohio

This Property has the convenience of a TRUE first floor Condo. Most of the First Floor Condos in Waterfronts Condominiums still require you to climb 8 steps and go down 8 steps, a total of 16 steps, to get to the Condo. This one is in the NEWEST building in the complex which only has 3 steps to get into and out of the Condo. Out of 150 condos at Waterfronts this is one of 4 that has only 3 steps to get outside.

What makes this condo unique

Brand new Hickory Kitchen Cabinets with center Island and breakfast bar. Oak 6 panel solid doors and Oak trim. Dishwasher, Washer and Dryer. 50 inch Hi Def Flat Screen TV and Electric Fire Place. One of only 12 condos out of 150 total in the complex with Whole House Heat and Air Conditioning.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just what we had in mind for Labor Day Weekend. Great Access to beach and Pool. Thanks for your hospitality.

Nice clean property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Port Clinton and island hopping. We didn't move our vehicle from the parking lot because everything was within a short walk . The condo had everything we needed and was clean and comfortable. Bill responded quickly to questions and was helpful in planning our short stay. We will definitely be back!

Great vacation condo!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great little condo perfect for a weekend getaway. We went for a small extended family getaway. With two small kids, it was the perfect size. Everything was very neat and tidy with all the necessary accommodations that were needed. The location is perfect for all the local attractions we wanted to see. We particularly enjoyed leaving the back sliding door open to feel the lake breeze come in! Thanks so much for helping make it a great trip.

Port Clinton Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Excellent base camp for our first trip to Cedar Point. Everything about the condo was as advertised. It was clean and comfortable for two adults and two teenagers. We very much enjoyed the pool and hot tub area. The beach on Lake Erie was also nice and spent some time splashing in the shallow waters. The owner was very easy to deal and gave lots of information on the area. We spent three nights there and being on a budget, we cooked our own meals so can't comment on the local restaurants but had a great time the day we went to Cedar Point to ride the most amazing coasters in the world.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property to anyone.

Very nice condo in a terrific, convenient location

  • 5 of 5

This condo ended up being a great fit for our family and our plans for a quick getaway. The owner Bill was wonderful to work with and made sure we had everything we needed. The condo complex was nice as well. My boys enjoyed the pool and hot tub while my husband and I enjoyed the backyard and view. I loved that everything we needed was within walking distance. This is a great way to avoid the crowded and overpriced tourist areas. We would definitely stay here again!!!!
