On Island you are close to everthing but still have privacy as well as being surrounded by water, great houses and gardens. and water views and access all around island.
Our stay for 8 days was tremendous.More than what we expected. We arrived at a beautiful home, well stocked and we needed nothing to accomodate our family. We enjoyed the quiet and serene environment which suited our purpose for keeping the feast of Tabernacles which is commanded of us in the scriptures.
We will always have fond memories of our stay here.and look forward to another year in your beautiful home. Once again thank you for accomadating us and being so gracious to us.
Our family of 8 stayed in this beautiful home for 2 wks, with more then enough room for everyone to be comfortable . The area is spectacular , close to Mystic seaport, and the restaurants are awesome we all got our fill of lobster. My husband rented kayaks for all the kids to use when they needed. we kayaked all the way to Mystic seaport. The kids would all go fishing in the evening down at the pier even if it was raining, We had a memorable family time in a very wonderful , comfortable home. The owner was very helpful to any of my questions that I needed help with. The family all agreed we would all love to return here.
After reading the description, reviews and seeing the photos on VRBO of this rental, I was wondering if we'd show up and it would be not as good as I had hoped. In fact, it was the opposite -- this house is fantastic for a large group looking for a quiet weekend with a bit of wilderness. The kitchen is a chef's dream complete with pretty much anything you could think of needed for cooking (pots, pans, knives, double-oven, etc), and there's plenty of space for dining with a crowd as well as relaxing. We comfortably fit 14 grown men, and the outdoor deck space was perfect for relaxing and lounging during the daytime. Plus, the owner was beyond easy to deal with, very accommodating and gave us tons of info in case we needed anything external.
Our stay at this house exceded our expectations. It is spacious, beautifully furnished, well equipped
kitchen, good beds etc. The location offers something for all, I would recommend to one and all.
Beautiful home, lots of space, wonderful kitchen and grill with a GREAT DECK!
The home comes with Bikes which are great to get around town and the Island. It is a very safe area and close to the aquarium and Casinos if you want to venture out!! We brought our Kayaks that were accessible to water about 100 feet away that take you out of the marsh and into the bay(great place paddle).
Town is two minutes away, but it was a great place to just relax and enjoy a big beautiful home!
My family recently enjoyed a lovely reunion in this generously appointed and spacious home. We had 9 adults and 3 children and the house was plenty big for all of us to sleep and live comfortably for a week. The house had more than enough space for my large family to congregate, sit, cook and eat together both inside and outside. The home is nestled in a beautiful, quiet community on Mason’s Island; the setting is the perfect backdrop for a relaxing vacation of lounging around and/or taking in the sights and activities in historic Mystic, CT. Great dining options are just a few minutes by car, but the large, renovated kitchen made it easy and fun to stay in and cook as well. The owners are very gracious and responsive to any questions, making the entire process and vacation a breeze!
We had an absolutely lovely vacation, renting this home from Oct. 1-8, 2011. The home was spacious enough to accommodate all of us (8 adults and 5 children). As a bonus, our youngest daughter got married in the backyard of the house on a glorious day and a lovely ceremony. The house is also close to everying, walking, biking, and all Mystic has to offer, also lots to do with children. The owner was most helpful throughout (especially in helping us arrange the wedding). The week we were there and the folloiwng week (us old fogies took another week driving through New England) turned out the best time in 2011 for the fall colors. A perfect time was had by all.
