About Megan Simonds

Kris & I started renting this studio out as an experiment roughly 3 years ago. Little did we know how much interest it would get. Since then we have been married and plan to continue sharing our studio with all of you. We are usually around to answer questions or give recommendations, but leave you all the privacy you need to enjoy your getaway.

Megan Simonds purchased this studio in 1996

Why Megan Simonds chose Mystic

Going into 2018 will be our fourth year sharing our space on Home away & VRBO. We had no idea how much we'd enjoy having others experience the views and all around relaxing environment of Studio by the sea. Some have said it feels as though you are on a boat, because you can see water from every angle. Sitting out by the water to read or watch the sunset is popular or just taking the short walk into town for happy hour and dinner. Whatever it is your looking for to unwind, this studio is sure to please.

What makes this studio unique

Swim or paddle right from the property! Have a fire or a picnic inches from the ocean! Walk to town for dinner, drinks, and entertainment. Close to Mystic Seaport and aquarium. Casinos are a twenty minute drive.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay, and everything was as pleasant and clean as our previous visit. The "Getaway" is well designed and decorated. The kitchen is a dream to cook in. We think of it as our home away from home for visiting with kids and grandkids.

Our studio by the sea experience was comfortable and relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

The view of the Mystic River/Bay area was exceptional. Windows line the walls to give you a feeling of being on the water when you are eating, lounging and most lovely is to wake up to the call of the sea life there. We took kayaks out several times to explore the smaller river and then around and up the Mystic River past the marinas and under bridges. We walked to downtown Mystic and enjoyed the shops, food and various entertainment to be had. It was a much needed get away for my husband and I and would recommend it highly.

Beautiful StudioApartment!

  • 4 of 5

The studio could not have been better. Wonderful views from every

window, most comfortable bed I have ever slept on. Everything provided.

Wished the location was a little closer to the village.

Thank you Kris, Megan, Noah and Jake, .....Jack and Jackie

Sensational Seaside Studio

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful piece of heaven was perfect for me and my husband during our stay in Mystic. We enjoyed the apartment, the view, the outdoor space and the owners are lovely! Tucked away and private but within walking distance of historical downtown Mystic, this apartment met all of our needs and then some! No need to search for a delicious piece of pie and a refreshing pint, Angie's Pizza and Pier 27 Lounge is a pleasant stroll from the Seaside Studio. So if you are planning to visit Mystic, CT, I highly recommend this little gem for your accommodations. Thank you Megan & Kyle! We will definitely see you again:)
