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!

Great Property

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful place to stay. Clean, tastefully decorated, peaceful yet surrounded by everything, felt like home. Everyone that came to visit us raved about this house. Ashley was extremely quick in response to any of the questions I had. Our son is already thinking about next thanksgiving 😆. The internet doesn't do this house justice. Thank you so much for opening your home to us!

Unique and Clean

  • 5 of 5

My husband, Mother, 2 dogs and myself stayed here two nights for a wedding we were in town for. When we walked inside it smelled very clean. It was a surprise to find little treats she had left by each bed side for us, not to mention the brownies on the kitchen table! The master suite is HUGE and the bed is very comfy. The back yard was AMAZING! Love the string lights and the fire pit table. This house is close to beaches, historic downtown and restaurants. Our dogs loved the back yard. I felt safe in the neighborhood as well. (I had read a review from someone stating the neighborhood was run down and didn't feel safe). It is an older area, not a new country club setting. We were very satisfied with our stay and if back in that area, we would stay again, without a doubt. We never contacted Ashely, as we didn't need to, everything was just as it should have been......perfect! Thank you Ashley for supplying such a nice place for ones to stay :)

Nice appearance, large back yard. Location not so great. The street is a bit run down.

  • 3 of 5

The Castle was cozy and inviting. My family enjoyed our stay and it was perfect for what we needed. However, the master bedroom bed is horrible. The first night I laid on it, it made a ton of sounds and killed my back. My husband moved the mattress to find that the box springs were completed busted. Needless to say, I had to share the other bed with our daughter the rest of our week 6 night stay. Also, the location of the Castle is not fully disclosed in the pictures or description. While yes, it is close to town and the beach, the street itself is run down and I didn't feel comfortable or safe. An alarm would be a great addition to the house. Other than that, the house was nice. It's completely remodeled, and has a nice touch!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, we are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay in Downtown Melbourne! It is our highest priority to ensure a comfortable stay, we were not aware that a previous guest had broken the box spring in the master bedroom. Wish we had known of this during your stay, we would have taken care of it right away. Thank you so much for bringing that to our attention, we have since replaced the box spring. Historic Downtown Melbourne has been working on revitalizing many of the historic homes and buildings over the years and continues to do so. You probably noticed a mixture of renovated historic homes, new construction homes, and historic homes yet to be revitalized during your stay. We would consider our location a very safe place to stay and have never had any incidents to question the location. We rely on guest feedback to improve the quality and comfort level for future guests and appreciate your time.

Lovely stay at a unique property

  • 5 of 5

My family loved staying at the castle. It was well located to where we were visiting family and the beaches. The master bathroom was such a surprise and I'm already planning to redo my own bathroom based on the shower. Very comfortable beds and couch and overall surrounding. Tastefully decorated. Would definitely stay here again when visiting the Melbourne area.

Relaxing, clean, and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for a family wedding and extended vacation. We really enjoyed our stay at the Castle. It was beautifully decorated, clean and very comfortable. We enjoyed our evenings on the porch with fire pit and patio lights. It had everything we needed and a perfect location. Thanks Ashley!!
