Not worth the price.
The house itself was cute, but you would expect more for the price. Lots of dirty dishes put away in the cabinets, as well as a dirty frying pan. In the instructions we were asked to load and start dishwasher upon checkout, but it was a portable one that didn’t close and we were expected to hook it up to the sink, which it did not reach to, and the hose would not connect. The dish soap in the kitchen was watered down and barely could wash a pan. One of the showers did not drain, so you would be standing in about 3 inches of water while showering. The living room had metal patio furniture instead of couches or chairs. There was no trash can in the kitchen, only a recycling bin. Instructions asked us to remove all trash and recyclables, to a trash area outside that was full. We were expected to strip all bed linens, and towels, and pile them in a corner of the room. It makes no sense to pay a cleaning fee that was very expensive, when we had to practically clean the whole house ourselves, and wash all dishes before we could use them. Also, the rental looked deceivingly larger and nicer in the photos online. It says there was a canoe to use, but it was actually a kayak, and was being used by other tenants frequently. The rental was actually the second floor of a 3 floor house with tenants living in the bottom and top floors. We were also asked to keep the key in the lock box at all times, which made us uncomfortable considering someone else would know the password and we had things inside that were valuable. Overall, we had a good weekend on this trip, but would not rent it again, and would not recommend it to others.
This property was very clean and we had a great time. So close to the town of Mystic- literally right down the street. Parking was great and off the road. The wrap around porch was beautiful and very large with a lot of seating. Views- fabulous!
Canoe and dock- so fun! Grill-clean Beds- super comfortable
Needs a large pot for pasta.
Huge tv but we couldn’t get it to work. Might be user error-lol
A disappointing experience
As another reviewer mentioned, the property is a bit rundown. In addition, there was a small construction project that was unfinished, which the owner acknowledged and offered us a small rebate. However, many amenities that should be standard for the high rate charged were completely missing: wash cloths, hand towels, bedside lamps, and a hair dryer. Also, there was no way to control the heat and the unit was 60 degrees on a cold damp night. For the high rate per night, we would have expected a higher quality property along with all the amenities one would find in a hotel.
It’s all about the location, however...
The location of this property is superb. Right on the water with lovely views. The sunrises from the verandah were spectacular across Bebee Cove.
However the apartment is shabby. Whilst clean, it really needs a lot of decorative attention. The kitchen and bathrooms could do with an update. The kitchen equipment is pretty basic - for example plastic plates and glasses. There was no oven pan, although this was rectified.
I would expect better at the rate being charged.
Thank you for your feedback. This listing, at 270 Elm Street, Mystic-Noank, is the only vacation-rental house in the coveted Mystic, CT area having sunrises over the River and located within about 2 miles of downtown Mystic. The extraordinary lower apartment for rent in this waterfront house has 4-6 large rooms, a 60-foot roofed-in wrap-around porch and a dock just as long.
Indeed, the other summer-rental houses in the coveted Mystic area exhibit excellent antique colonial furnishings as a major part of their strong suit. The furniture and the like at 270 Elm is modern, attractive and functional. Combining the virtues of each type -- on the one hand, the antique ambiance, on the other hand, waterfront, sunrise, wrap-around porch, proximity to Mystic, etc. -- would lead to an extraordinary leap in demand and -- unfortunately -- in price.
We of course are sorry that the listing did not meet all of your expectations. Your feedback will be shared with the homeowner to make improvements in the future. Again, many thanks for your response.
Very relaxing place right on the cove and z miles to Mystic...bring bikes and enjoy!!!
Kurt, we are happy to hear that you had such a relaxing stay at this property. We strive to provide a five-star experience for all of our guests, so please don't hesitate to reach out and let us know how we could have improved your stay. Best, the Evolve Team
Spectacular waterview and sunrise!
Fabulous location. Can easily uber to downtown mystic or Noank for under $10 without having to hassle with parking. The house is older with one or two corks but is extremely clean. We used the canoe which fit 2 comfortably to explore Bebe cove.The covered porch area was a great spot to hang and grill dinner. Joe was sure to check in to make sure we had all that we needed. This house is all about being in a great location. Carson’s is fabulous for breakfast. Mystic has great restaurants. Free submarine museum and local golf near by.
