This is a wonderful place for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Condo 9A is perfect for our family vacation week at Kelleys Island. Over the years we have rented many other condos on Kelleys Island. This condo is by far the best one. We have rented it at least 3 times. It is a very large unit, so it can accommodate our gang and give room to stretch out. We cook many of our meals so the gas grill and kitchen equipment come in very handy. The deck has a picnic table that easily seats 8 if we use chairs at the end. The dining room table is perfect for evening cards and other games. The WiFi was a hit with all our kids and grand kids. Kelleys Island is our favorite get away and this is our favorite place to stay.

Would have been nice to have a view of something other than storage buildings and a pine tree.

Also, No TV service to speak of and no clocks on the wall. We have stayed right on quarry for many years and prefer that location.

Owner's Response: We have full TV service via the internet (Over 40 live stations, 3 HD TV's in the house), the guests were told and shown in person how to operate the system. Went out of our way to help them with the TV on multiple days. Sorry that they had such a hard time.

Very spacious!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time & really appreciate getting in a little early. I know we were the first renters of the season but the place could use a good scrubbing. Ceiling fans and vents are quite dirty. Overall had a great stay and would love to come back.

Best Condo on the Island

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Condo 9A for a second year over Memorial day weekend. This condo is big enough for all of us, our grown children and grandchildren. The deck is large and the grill is wonderful. The kitchen is equipped with anything you might need to whip up a meal. We have been going to Kelley’s Island for over ten years and have stayed in different Quarry Condos over the years. Our grandchildren are older now and we needed more room. This condo works for us.
