Guestbook comments from the manager

A great house, very quiet and peaceful place. Next time I hopefully will be able to enjoy the closeness to town and all the fun in the little shops. This time it was a great place for my guys to be so close to the hospital to be able to easily visit me while recovery from my surgery. Love the unique decorations. Blessings!

Felt like home from day one!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this home. I had imagined that the home was going to be fairly small but, boy was I wrong about that! Plenty of room and very comfortably appointed. Would definitely stay there again if the opportunity comes up.

'Chilling at the Castle'

  • 5 of 5

We found the accommodations at the Castle to be clean, welcoming and spacious. The bedrooms were bright and very comfortable. And the kitchen was spotless, large and with a lot of extras. There were also cosy sitting rooms to stretch out in. We enjoyed several evenings 'chilling' around the gas fire pit under bright stars and balmy air, in a private, well tended backyard.

There are a wide variety of fun activities in Melbourne, from a day at the beach, shopping, fine dinning, golf, water sports, and just hanging with family and friends. There are also many amazing sightseeing locations within an easy drive to enjoy, like Disney and the Space Coast. The Castle was a lovely home to relax in, after a full day.

It was very easy to make our booking. We had prompt, friendly attention from Ashley V. She responded quickly to any inquiries we had. A professional, thoughtful representative.

We would definitely recommend staying at the Castle in Melbourne. Good central location, a well maintained, cared for property, friendly attentive service.

You can have it all at the Castle!

Charming and roomy

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyable stay in Melbourne. Our two families found this home perfect. When we arrived, it was clean and well maintained. Roomy enough for all, with two living areas and two large bedrooms. The location was very convenient. It was within 10 minutes of everything you’d need (Historic downtown, restaurants, beach, shopping). The neighborhood was quiet and the neighbors we met were very pleasant.
