ABOUT US

OUR COMPANY

At Stock the House, we want to take everything you need while vacationing and put it on your phone.  At least, that’s the vision of its President and CEO, Domenica Mastroianni.

Domenica and her husband, Jim, came up with the idea after their second child was born.  That next summer vacation proved to be an exhausting one and they were ready to give up on vacation planning altogether.  Then, she had the idea to delegate the work but had a hard time finding someone that could offer everything she needed, in every town she needed it.  “In our family, we believe that experiences are far more valuable than things.  So, we love the idea of bringing our kids on adventures and traveling to places that are unique or different from where we live.”  Only the stress that came with family travel seemed too overwhelming at times.  “For almost 3 years, we limited our travel to a 3-hour car ride.  Any further than that would induce anxiety thanks to the planning, coordination, and all of the things that come with staying in a home that isn’t yours.”

After struggling to find what she was looking for, she decided to create her own.  Stock the House became a reality in 2017 and the company continues to grow.

We are passionate about creating wonderful vacation experiences for families and friends.  We’ve tried to create a network that covers almost everything.  “But, even if we don’t have what you need listed on the site, we do everything we can to figure out how to get it.  Think of it as your personal assistant who specializes in all things vacation, all from the convenience of your computer or mobile device.
