Guestbook comments from the manager

For an annual leadership getaway for our church, we decided to rent a vacation house for a little 'homey' feel. We were happy to find a house in Mystic this year. The house was clean and well maintained. And the pictures were accurate. The bedrooms were great size. The kitchen/dining/living room combo provided an open and spacious feel. The location was in a nice quite area of the town. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Everyone of us had a great and relaxing time. We would definitely like to return next year! Thank you so much!!

We took our mother out with her family for a big birthday getaway. It was so nice and neat, they went above and beyond in hospitality. Everything was just so and we had everything we needed It was a wonderful experience for all!

Absolutely A+++

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this Mystic gem with my family over my wedding weekend. I wanted a place that could be central for my friends and family. I stayed at the house for 3 nights with my immediate family. It was exactly what we were hoping for....and more! The house is absolutely beautiful. The pictures don't even do it justice. The inside is immaculate, spacious, beautifully furnished and feels very comfortable and home-like. The outside of the house is awesome too! The beautiful landscaping, fire pit and outdoor seating added the perfect touches for a wonderful weekend. The bedrooms are large, plenty of space in the bathrooms and the living areas (kitchen, living room, etc) are open and spacious, too. There is so much room to hang out and be with friends/family. You can tell Mark (the owner) takes great care of the house. Everything is in tip top shape! He was an absolute pleasure to work with....he was very responsive and a really, really nice guy! When we were checking out after the weekend, my whole family got to meet Mark and we couldn't stop talking about how lucky we felt to find him and his home on Home Away! The home truly contributed to what was one of the best weekends of our lives. We wouldn't have had it any other way. If you get the chance to rent this home, do it! You will not be disappointed. Thanks, Mark!

Perfect home for a family visiting Mystic/New England

  • 5 of 5

This property is simply amazing! Our extended family (8 total) stayed for 5 days in October 2017 for a New England getaway. The home is immaculate, is beautifully furnished, and is very spacious with 3 upstairs bedrooms, a renovated kitchen that overlooks the family room, and a large, completely furnished (bed, TV, exercise equipment, etc.) basement den, which our kids loved. The home totally compliments the seaport Mystic-vibe, but with modern renovations inside and out. It has a beautiful backyard patio with BBQ, covered terrace, hammock and firepit, and is a short 5 min walk to the downtown Mystic shops and restaurants. Mark (the property manager) is very nice, engaging and super-responsive. You won't find a better home for your Mystic visit. We are planning to stay here again for our next trip and highly recommend it!

A Perfect Reunion Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We were six "young" gals celebrating 50 years of friendship. We all met in the fall of 1967 as freshmen at a small liberal arts college for women in Massachusetts. We have enjoyed several reunions over the years in various places in New England, New Jersey and Naples, Florida. It was my turn this year to do the planning. I settled on a new spot for us, Mystic Seaport, Connecticut, and hit the jackpot with 5 Elm Place!

From the description and photos on VRBO, we knew this was a special house. Yet, we were not prepared for how spectacularly it presents in person. Upon first entering 5 Elm, one is struck by the fine furnishings and the decorator's eye for detail. At the same time, the house is inviting and very comfortable. The kitchen is spacious and well-equipped; Mark has thought of everything one might conceivably need, and more. The entire main floor is open and provides a nice area for socializing. As there were six of us, we used the leaf in the dining table and spent entire mornings sitting around it, lingering over breakfast and that extra cup of coffee.

The bedrooms worked well for us. They are beautifully appointed, each with a television, and with exceptionally comfortable beds and pillows. The bathrooms are spotless and nicely equipped, and have great showers. The linen closet has more extra towels than one could possibly use. All the linens, in general, are of high quality. One friend remarked that she felt like we were at a spa!

A favorite spot on the property is the yard. The dining area with its outdoor lighting is so welcoming. For us, the fire pit was most memorable, as the six of us sat out one evening reminiscing, laughing and enjoying out little campfire. Yes, we sang a few songs.

Thank you, Mark, for checking in with us and making sure all was going well. Congratulations on your high standards of maintenance. We honestly felt as though the house had been built just before our arrival. Finally, it was unanimous among the group that 5 Elm Place had certainly earned a return reunion visit. See you next year!

The best!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week in Mark’s home. The house is fantastic. Our children made full use of the yard, we ate dinner under the pergola and we enjoyed everything about the house, the yard and the location. The house was fully stocked with the basics. No need to rush out to buy toiletries, etc. Definitely one of the best places we have stayed.

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

My family & I rented this home for a 3 day stay for a wedding. The instant you walk through the door you are impressed. The décor is carefully chosen to highlight the local Mystic area which we love. The living area is comfortable for family breakfasts or dinners or just hanging out with the family. We were lucky enough to have some warm evenings during our stay so we able to enjoy the beautiful outdoor patio area and the hammock. The house is convenient to and within walking distance of downtown Mystic, so its easy to enjoy all of the local restaurants and shops....what's better than that? Our host, Mark, was lovely to deal with. He walked us through the house so we would be comfortable with all the elements of the house and let us know he was there for us if we needed him. We wouldn't hesitate to rent this home again!
