About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Waterfront home with views – views – views, in the private residential community of Sand Beach in Oak Harbor. The home has a large living room with bay window that looks out across Lake Erie, with views of South Bass Island and West Sister Island in the distance. 80 feet of beach front, with private stairs from our deck, assures plenty of space for swimming, sunbathing or playing, and the large porch area, ideal for picnics, barbeques, or simply lounging to enjoy the views, provides ample space for large groups. And at night, you can build a fire in the fire pit. Look out over the lake from the fully-equipped kitchen and large dining room that provides plenty of room for large family meals or intimate gatherings.

Four bedrooms comfortably sleep 10 (queen-sized beds in three rooms, double bed and bunk beds in one). Two living room areas, each with large screen television and DVD player provide ample room for large families or groups to spread out in comfort. Cable TV, stereo, wireless computer access, DVDs, CDs and games are available for late nights or rainy days. Our home is air conditioned, all linens and towels are provided, and it comes equipped with outdoor grill, washer and dryer.

For the fisherman, this home looks out to the best walleye and yellow perch fishing on Lake Erie, with the Camp Perry reef complex only three miles offshore. A marina and launch ramps are less than a mile away, with fishing charters located on site. The marina also offers a restaurant, bar, overnight dock rentals, and convenience store, and numerous bait shops are also nearby.

There’s plenty to do at many of the nearby attractions that Lake Erie has to offer, including Cedar Point; nearby ferries can whisk you away for the day to Put-In-Bay, Kelley’s and Pelee Islands; natural wildlife areas, lighthouses, and wineries abound. A private fenced-in playground just down the street provides ideal play space for young children.

About The Owner

Although we grew up in the Cleveland area, both of us have been avid travelers since going to Australia to teach a week after we were married. We have traveled on all seven continents, lived in Hawaii for four years, and love to share our home and experiences with others from around the world. Ken, a university professor, and Hyla, a case manager for children with disabilities, have two married daughters and are proud grandparents of three boys and two girls. We look forward to sharing our home with you.

Our Oak Harbor getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house was fantastic! We stayed with 3 families - 6 adults and 6 children ranging in age from 7-18. Plenty of room for all! Views are as advertised, as the back patio leads directly to the water. Be sure to bring water shoes, as the waterline/beach area is a little rocky. The house had everything we needed and more. This was a perfect vacation for us East Coast Jersey folks. You gotta visit Put-in-Bay, by far the best destination during our trip! Thanks Ken and Hyla for a great week!!!

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

The house was in great shape, clean, well equipped. We loved the fact that it is right on the beach. The house is child friendly,with plenty of space for them to play.

The owners communicated clearly regarding their expectations and answered any question promptly.

The area is full of dogs, I wish the owners would allow dogs in this rental.

Great Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our three families to relax. Our group included 5 teen-agers and they were equally impressed with the accomodations. We loved the location, the lay-out of the house and the fact that it was fully stocked with everything that we needed. We had a fire on the first night (rain kept us from doing it on the second night) and totally loved the view of the water and stars. It was a memorable trip, and we would return again in a heartbeat.

Home State Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home, more room than the pictures show. Very clean & well-equipped for our week. Nice grocery very close for food & supplies. Thanks for the goodie bag! Very peaceful , with the bay-window view of the lake ,so calm & we were able to see the sunrise & set with all the colors! We could see Put-in-Bay in the distance & visited there on our way out. Everyone we brought loved it here & want to go back, again! Thanks so much for sharing!

Family reunion at the lake.

  • 5 of 5

We have 7 children and 12 grandchildren ~ four children and 8 of the grandchildren had the opportunity to be together this past week at Oak Harbor. Though not all were together all the time, on the last evening everyone was there and we told stories and laughed. Two of the four children brought their spouses and we all enjoyed laughing and watching the little cousins dance and spin and chase the waves.

We're looking forward to our stay next year!

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed her for a week. The babies loved the beach, throwing rocks and looking for seashells. The big kids loved swimming and the close proximity to cedar pointe and kalahari and the wildlife park. My parents loved the view and watching the sunrise while drinking coffee. The owners were very kind and hospitable. The house was large enough for 10 of us to spread out comfortable. My girlfriend and her 2 kids even came by for one night. We will definitely return.
