Hello and welcome to our lovely little Mystic home! We are very excited for you to stay here and thank you for choosing to stay with us. Please feel free to let us know if you need anything, or if you have any concerns, either before you arrive or at any time during your stay. We will assist you in any way that we can, as we want you to enjoy every minute of your time here.
24 Hour Self Check-In
So that you may check-in at your convenience (after 3pm check in time, of course), you will enter the house using a digital code and find the key cards on the dining room table.
IMPORTANT - please leave both sets of keys on the table when checking out.
About the house
Our house is for you to enjoy. Basic amenities are provided including clean bedding, fresh towels, bathroom supplies, and more (including an iron, ironing board, and a hairdryer). You have full access to anything that you find in the house - it is there for your use and convenience.
Feel free to use all of our cooking ware, utensils and appliances as needed, plus any condiments or other cooking supplies you may find – in short, help yourself to everything. We have plenty of storage space available for groceries, a fridge, outdoor gas grill, dishwasher, oven and cook top, kettle, toaster, and microwave. At this point, we would like to politely remind guests of one of the house rules – to always clean up after yourselves in the kitchen, and not leave any dirty dishes when you check out.
Our home is a strictly non-smoking environment. If you would like to smoke, please go outside to do so. We also ask that cigarette butts/filters are disposed of properly and not left in the yard or driveway. Thank you in advance for your cooperation. In full transparency, we have one security camera located on the front of the house.
Our house has high-speed internet access that you may connect to via wireless.
Network: The Island
The house has a 57" flat screen TV with remote. All we ask is that you don't loose our remote! :)
If any noise or disturbances are reported by our neighbors, (who have our phone number), there will only be one warning phone call from us, and next the police will be called – serious offenders will have their bookings cancelled on the spot and without refund.
Likewise, if you are disturbed by noise from the neighbors or guests above or either side of you, please let us know. If it is very late at night and/or we are not immediately contactable, it is perfectly acceptable to call the local Stonington police. It is not something we expect to happen, but we do take the peaceful enjoyment and sleep of our guests and neighbors very seriously. Please respect our house rules and each other.
If you need to do some laundry during your stay, the washer and dryer are located in the basement of the house. We will also provide detergent and fabric softener for your convenience.
We kindly ask that you collapse the umbrella on the front deck when not in use so that the wind doesn't damage it.
Fire Pit & Tiki Torches
Fires are only allowed in the designated fire pit that we have provided. Please refrain from burning anything but fire wood. We are happy to provide you with some wood for your stay. More bundles can be purchased at both local grocery stores (McQuade's Marketplace and Big Y). Please make sure all fires and tiki torches are attended and extinguished when leaving the house or going to bed.
You will find a selection of wines in our dining room cork table. If you've forgotten to visit the liquor store before they've closed (9pm most places, 8pm Cask & Keg) we are happy to offer them to you at cost. Each bottle is has a price sticker. All we ask is that you Venmo us for any opened bottles @Israel-Malek
If you're enjoying your morning coffee and notice any flowers or plants around the property need a drink of water, please feel free to do so. There's a watering can on the back deck.
We kindly ask that you check-out of the house no later than 11am. This will ensure that we have time to properly clean in preparation for our next guests checking in. Please leave the lights switched off and the key cards on the table. It is certainly not expected, however, If you'd like to strip the beds prior to your departure, it will be much appreciated by our cleaners. In addition, if you care to send a message to notify us upon your departure, especially if it is early, this greatly helps us to continually provide the best service possible.
Thank you so much!
Once again, thank you for choosing us and our house. Should you, or any of your recommended friends, family or associates ever wish to stay with us in Mystic in the future, please do contact us.

Do not hesitate to contact us if you need anything or have any questions during your stay, and we will do our best to help.

If you're looking to escape the busy streets of downtown Mystic for something a little more quaint, we recommend a trip to the neighboring Stonington Borough with offers several restaurants, coffee shops, shopping and a great place to see the sun come up or go down at the point. The borough is just about a ten minute drive from the house.
Another close by town (approximately 15 minutes away) is Westerly. Located just over the state border in Rhode Island, Westerly also offers many food and drink options, shopping, cafes, the newly renovated United Theatre and more. Plus, it's on the way to the beach:)
