An Amazingly gorgeous property!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment you step through the doors the interior of the home is simply elegant. You lack for nothing. I cannot say enough about the basement game room, it is a dream for a kid and the kid at heart. It was unbelievable. Everyone had so much fun playing childhood games like pac man and new ones such as giant jenga. The pools is gorgeous and the dock is large enough to accommodate our three boats. The groundskeeper Daniel was so helpful. I had a question about the gas grill and he was right on the spot. The facilities manager Mary Ann was also available and prompt. She made us feel right at home. Thank you for such a beautiful rental property that suited our every need. The owner Andy, knows what it takes for an enjoyable vacation and how to make you happy! We will definitely be back!

We had a blast.

Everyone had a great time during their stay. The game room was impressive and kept everyone entertained late into the evenings. The owners were very responsive and easy to work with. I would recommend the space and return in the future.

Clean, private, interesting, with a great in-ground pool!

  • 5 of 5

My family had an enjoyable time here at the castle. It's a private place with plenty of room. The pool and game room were enjoyable and we just stayed there the whole four days of time as these activities keep our kids and us entertained.

Amazing house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time at the Castle! The property manager, Mary Ann was super accommodating and very easy to work with. The house was stocked with a lot of basics that I thought we would need to bring with us, so that was a nice surprise. We are looking forward to the pool being heated hopefully next year for our next visit. Thanks again for a wonderful experience!

We had an awesome time over the labor day weekend at the Plattus castle. The game room was awesome...the grounds and the pool were lovely! We can't wait to return next year.
