Great girls' weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house for our girls weekend visit! The house was very clean and spacious for us. Loved the deck! Watching the sun rises in the morning from the living room was beautiful! We cooked a few meals in the kitchen; we had everything we needed to prepare our meals. Beds and rooms were great!

We will stay in this house in the future!

A few friends and I went to Connecticut for a car auction. We chose to stay in Mystic because of it's accessibility to our daily destination. Dealing with Margaret was a pleasure. She is a very nice and accommodating person.

The house is located on Mason Island and the view was amazing. Everything was great and we will be staying there again in the future.

Great Mystic getaway.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and i took our four boys ages 10-16 to enjoy Mystic and Misquamicut beaches. They house served us well. The huge deck with grill was our evenings on most days. Cooking the fresh fish from the seafood market across the causeway, relaxing and getting that great breeze off the water. We had great times fishing the causeway. The bait shop there is helpful and owned by a great family. The Aquarium, mystic seaport and many restaurants and shops are minutes away. The beaches are an easy ride away as well. I have visited this area for the past 30 years. Staying on the beach is nice but the people, traffic and cost of food is no comparison to enjoying the beach then coming home to a relaxing and quiet spot to decompress. Clean up, cook in or go out. There is a huge tv on the 1st floor. There is a great sized yard where we enjoyed yard games at the end of our day. I will not hesitate to reserve this house anytime we plan to travel to this area.

Thanks Casters!

Perfect setting for our Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

My staff and I headed up to Mystic for our annual retreat in early September. Margaret was awesome in accommodating us on very late notice and was a pleasure to work with during the rental process. The house was just what we were looking for - its on Mason's Island which is extremely quiet and peaceful and within short access to everything including grocery stores, fish markets, restaurants and the marina. The deck is a tremendous feature and you could sit outside all day watching the boats and kayaks go by. The front of the house is ALL glass which lets in a ton of light, and the bedrooms and bathrooms were all clean and comfortable. We were within short driving distance to the Mystic Seaport, Aquarium AND Foxwoods casino! My staff and I are looking forward to returning next year and highly recommend this property to all!

Not recommended

  • 1 of 5

We've stayed in VRBOs in many states. This rental was the worst we've stayed in.

The rooms were tiny. Lights in the kitchen didn't work, nor could you tell the temperature

in the oven. No overhead lighting in the master-just one tiny lamp. Shower liner in

master bath was so full of mold we couldn't use it. Electrical wiring was probably not up

to code. No batteries in the smoke detector that we saw. Narrow winding staircase leads

up to kitchen and master. Tiny dishwasher and refrigerator. No garbage disposal. Save

your money. Only nice thing was the view.

Owner's Response: Dear Richard, We are surprised by your comments regarding your 3 night stay at our home. The house dimensions are posted on the website, along with photos of each room. All the rooms on the second floor have cathedral ceilings, including the master bedroom which has a 12X14 floor plan. The living room, dining room and kitchen, on the second floor, are an open floor plan. Collectively, there is 450-500 square feet of open floor on the second level. The family room on the first floor is a 15X18 floor plan. There are three overhead lights in the kitchen. When you wrote to us at 10pm about the one light that burned out in the kitchen, we replaced the bulb the following day. The dial on the oven that regulates the temperature is very easy to ready. No one has ever had difficulty reading the dial in the past. The light is the master bedroom is 75 watts and is not only bright, but good for reading. The shower liner is new, no mold. The electrical wiring is perfect and meets all code requirements. There are 8 smoke detectors in our 1,410 square foot home, all with active batteries. The staircase, leading to the living room, has 13 steps with one turn on the 11th step. Certainly, the staircase is not winding. The dishwasher is a standard size apartment appliance. The refrigerator is 21 cubic feet with a freezer and automatic ice maker. When we drove by the property, we noticed that the two of you were enjoying our beautiful 30X30 deck under the spacious umbrella. As well, you must have enjoying cooking on our gas/charcoal grill. We are certain that you must have enjoyed the wide screen TV in the family room. Most likely you had the opportunity to use the 8,000 btu air conditioning. While you mention the view, you may have noticed that the two 8 foot glass sliding doors and the 6 foot glass sliding doors are brand new and provide a breathtaking view of the ocean and marina. Possibly, you are commenting on a different property. Sincerely, Richard & Margaret Caster

Seacoast Heaven

  • 4 of 5

This basic but totally serviceable home was a week of heaven. The main floor (2nd level) has fabulous views of the water, marina (across the harbor), and is great for watching birds and the stars at night. Except for early morning cars heading to the marina, it's totally quiet. There is a wonderful wholesale fish shack across the causeway, so if you like to cook fresh fish...FABULOUS! There is a gas/charcoal grill on the deck and serviceable kitchen. If you are looking for luxury, this is not it; it's basic and simple. But the couches are comfortable for long naps and cocktails. The stairs going from the 1st to 2nd floor are difficult for someone with sight or age issues. They are narrow and turn sharply at the top of the stairs. It is a short drive into Mystic, and many excellent restaurants and fun shops. The little beach at the YMCA is less than a mile away. Washer and drier help you to pack light! This is a peaceful place to enjoy a lovely retreat with salt air, seagulls and great blue herons!
