About Kevin Scanlon

I was born in Denver, CO, but grew up in and around Mystic, CT.

I spent over 6 years as an IT consultant in the pharmaceutical industry before switching to real estate. I'm a licensed agent, general contractor, landlord and hospitality manager (operating my vacation rental properties).

I enjoy traveling, fixing up old houses and spending as much time outdoors and on the water as possible.

Kevin Scanlon purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Kevin Scanlon chose Mystic

This apartment is located in a house right next door to another house me and my family has owned since 2012 (VRBO listing #484513). When this property came up for sale by the out-of-state owner, I jumped on the opportunity to purchase and fix it up in order to share it with fellow travelers.

What makes this apartment unique

The views of the Mystic River from the front porch and the close vicinity to downtown Mystic restaurants and attractions make this rental an ideal place for a weekend getaway or an extended vacation. Dedicated off-street parking and easy access to the Mystic Amtrak station make traveling to and from the location a breeze. Once you're parked you can easily walk everywhere in Downtown Mystic!

St. Patrick’s Day weekend with family!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location. The apartment had everything we needed and more. We could walk downtown, to restaurants and the harbor is across the street. The Mystic Aquarium is a great family place. Kevin, the owner is very friendly and responds to emails and texts right away. This was our first Home Away experience but not our last!

Wonderful rental in an ideal location

  • 5 of 5

The outside of the rental is rather nondescript, but then you step inside and see that everything has been recently updated from top to bottom. The rental was clean, bright and fresh. Everything needed for a comfortable stay was provided. We enjoyed the convenience of having a washer and dryer in the rental. The owner was very pleasant and easy to contact when I had a question concerning the location of extra pillows.

The location was ideal being a short 5-minute walk to all the shops in downtown Mystic. We also liked the free parking in the lot across the street.

We had six people staying here and having the second bathroom made it perfect for us. We would definitely stay here again. For this Mystic location the price is a good deal.

Wonderful convenient in-town experience

  • 5 of 5

This is wonderful in-town rental. Just a very short walk to cafes, shops, restaurants, etc. parking lot across street (gated access) was very convenient. We thought it might be noisy but it wasn't at all. You are not on the main drag. Walls are very thick and new thermopane windows. Don't be put off by outside of this property. It is a very old building but has been totally renovated. Inside is clean and modern and tastefully decorated. Kitchen is more than adequate for basic food prep and serving. Main floor is all one room with kitchen, dining table and living room with full bath. Very open and nicely done. Two nice size bedrooms upstairs with hall bath. Be patient with A/C units. They work fine. Just take a minute or so. Don't reduce temperature too much as energy savings feature will interfere. It was cold so we did not use the deck out back or front porch. Do not plan on using the living room sofabed for sleeping. The mattress is extremely thin. Fortunately we had brought a blow up mattress for our 5th person. Would stay here again in a heartbeat with a party of 4 adults.
