    About this property

    Mystic Secret, a Lovely Studio Suite

    Apartment with kitchenette, walk to Mystic Seaport
    Ideally located central to the best of Mystic attractions! An easy walk of less than 1/10 of a mile is the North entrance to the Mystic Seaport Museum, Latitude 41 restaurant, and Shipyard Tavern. Less than a mile in one direction is the Mystic Marine Life Aquarium, and the numerous shops/ restaurants of Olde Mystic Village. A mile the other direction (south) you will find yourself at the historic drawbridge in the heart of downtown Mystic. Ideal for couples, singles, couples with a child. Although we are so close to all the attractions, our place is in a remarkably quiet area given our proximity to all the activity. We are set back several lots on a side street off the main drag. From our front yard, you are looking down at the scenic Mystic River, and in a few steps you can cross the street and enjoy an ice cream stand or iconic snack shop with picnic tables set right on the water. Your hosts, John and Robin are lifelong travelers for work and pleasure and know exactly what is required for the perfect vacation stay. We provide all the extra touches: luxury linens, coffee K cups, snacks, bottled water and occasionally…a surprise libation! There is one queen bed, and the couch turns into a sleeper very easily. The sleeper would be great for a child, but is actually comfortable enough and intended for an adult to have a good night sleep. A well equipped kitchenette allows the option of dining in as much as you like. At the very least help yourself to a morning coffee/breakfast to start your day! High speed Xfinity WIFI and cable TV. In addition to cable, the smart TV has the usual apps, so you are welcome to sign into any you subscribe to. Should a more formal engagement bring you to town, such as business or a wedding we have you covered with plenty of closet and hanging space. As well as a full-length mirror in the bathroom, and ironing gear. We welcome respectful guests from all backgrounds and diversity. Mystic is a beautiful, accepting, and peaceful place. We do not however accept reservations from any guest with negative feedback from another host. The studio apartment which is the lower level of our split level home. The studio has a private entrance and is completely for guests. The entry is through secure digital key pad doors through the overhead garage doors and interior entry door all on ground level with no stairs. Guest are welcome to use the driveway for parking. Pull right up to the garage door, enter a code for the overhead door, then enter another code on the interior entry door into the studio. All very secure and convenient. Automatic exterior lights come on with motion. With exception of the deck, the upper level of the home access is by host invite only to guests as it is occupied by a quiet retiree who is actually an 84 year resident of Mystic! And, born in a home that is now part of the Mystic Seaport Museum. Lovely to talk with should you wish to have a conversation with a true local who has welcomed many a visitor to Mystic as the proprietor of a popular gift shop and religious store located in the shops at Olde Mystick Village for many years. The space has guest controlled central heat, window air conditioner, and screen windows for the beautiful in between days with the Mystic shoreline breezes. Guest also may feel free to use the large outdoor deck for relaxing, dining, or sipping a drink day or evening. Just remember we live in a quiet neighborhood and need to keep it that way!

    My husband and I stayed here while attending Family Weekend at the Coast Guard Academy in New London. It was only 15 minutes away. It’s also very convenient to the town of Mystic for meals, shopping, etc. This is a sweet and comfortable place. Everything was thought of to make it feel welcoming and homelike. Also, the owners were very responsive to an unexpected issue. We will definitely be staying here again!

    Stayed 3 nights in Oct 2019

      Great location and value

      This rental is on the ground floor of a split level home. It was so easy to get in and out thanks to their key code locks. Everything -including TV remotes and shower- has a label. They had a Keurig with plenty of coffee options and a basket with goodies like microwave popcorn and M&Ms. The bathroom has a large sink with excellent lighting - not always the case with some rentals. I read the reviews about the heat pump - and yes it does go on and off. I’m a pretty light sleeper and I slept like a rock while here, so it wasn’t a problem for me. Understand that there are people upstairs and you will hear them walking around during the day - but it was completely quiet at night. Very reasonably priced compare to other VRBOs especially given its location.

      5/5 Excellent

        Great place

          Best VRBO in Mystic

          If you are taking a trip to Mystic, or the surrounding area, this is the VRBO you want to stay in. What you see on the listing is exactly what you get, PLUS. If I could give this property & it’s owners, John & Ronin, 6 stars for their “ Mystic Secret” I definitely would.

          5/5 Excellent

            Excellent stay in Mystic

            The unit was just as described, clean and close to everything we wanted to see. We were quite comfortable in the room and were provided with everything we needed.
