About Jeff Mogg

My wife and I are semi retired. We moved to our home here after selling our business which was located near Toledo in 2010. We love the water and being outside. This place is perfect for enjoying the outdoors.

Why Jeff Mogg chose Ohio

This apartment is very nicely furnished and has immediate access to the beach and Lake Erie in front of our home.

This location was better than expected!! You can't get any closer to the beach than this! House was very clean and comfortable. Perfect vacation for my myself, husband, and two boys. We plan on returning next fall also.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This apartment didn't feel like a two bedroom at all. Open and airy with all the amenities of home right here on a beach front location. This really can't be beat and the hosts were amazing. I HIGHLY recommend this vacation spot to anyone. Amazing location, amazing apartment and amazing hosts.

Great Stay on Gem Beach

  • 5 of 5

Tell location of this two bedroom apartment on Gem Beach can't be beat. The unit is air conditioned, has a washer and dryer, a dishwasher and kitchen sink dispsal. More important, it is right on Gem beach which is great for a family vacation or a quiet getaway. The hosts and owners are available when you need them but also let you enjoy your vacation. They are just really great people. Want a great but simple and worry free Lake Erie vacation, this is the place to be.

Gem of a place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay with our daughter and 3 grandchildren on Gem Beach. and yes, the children (2, 3 and 7) loved the closet "bedroom" We were coming and going most of the weekend to the beach, the nearby African safari, and nearby attractions. The owners were very accommodating.

Very Happy

  • 5 of 5

Our children are ages 8, 6 and 3 and the apartment was a great set up. The closet in one of the bedrooms was large enough that our children enjoyed taking turns sleeping there, while having their own little hideout. Air mattresses were provided but in the end they were too distracting so we just made little "nests" on the floor. FYI for families that may use a portable crib, I think it would easily fit in the closet. The ceilings slope but there is definitely enough floor space, if not there is an alcove in the bedroom as well. The linens were really lovely, have all been updated since the photos were taken. Jeff was really accommodating, quickly taking care of any issues and even updating WiFi router so my husband could work (although still was difficult to access from IN apartment, but I think that just has to do with the building structure). Access to beach chairs, grill, etc were really nice. We had multiple day visitors as we travelled from out of state and family and friends came to visit for cookouts. Everyone loved the beach location and many are considering future rental. Also, there was a neighborhood 4th of July parade, so if you have children, they would certainly enjoy it. Fireworks on the beach were fantastic, great view of PIB and Lakeside, with added bonus of being able to put kids to bed immediately after. Only suggestion was that living room furniture was dated, but really, this rental was great for our needs and I really think the owners make the difference.
