  • A magnificent and unique location, to be done once in a lifetime.

    Matteo2021-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • Everything about our stay was lovely. The apartment was clean and cosy and the amenities were wonderful. Will be coming back!

    Natalie2020-12-07T00:00:00Z
  • It was a fantastic vacation! Exceptional accommodation and surroundings, very accommodating hosts, our wishes were met. The castle is just a dream, a shame it's so far from home With great pleasure again!

    Natali2020-10-22T00:00:00Z
  • Really beautiful place, the park is magnificent and well cared for and even more beautiful is being able to appreciate it while you are immersed in the warm waters of the thermal pools, it is also worth the tour in the cellars and the wines produced on site. The welcome for the little ones is also very popular!

    Grazia2020-10-18T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place! We had a wonderful time, especially the indoor pool and hot tubs were incredible. Thank you very much for hosting us!

    Aris2020-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely incredible experience. One of the most unique Airbnb accommodations that we have had the pleasure to stay in. The communication prior to and during our stay was top notch. Extremely easy checkin/out process and parking. Great home base to explore Venice, Verona, Prosecco Road, and other regions. We had a wine tasting that was one of the highlights of our trip. The thermal pools/baths are so relaxing. This is the place to stay, just book it!

    Paul2020-09-26T00:00:00Z
  • This is a gem like no other. This is a well maintained and renovated castle where all details are beautiful. From we arrived until we left, we were met with nothing but hospitality from everyone we met. The rooms are super clean and very nice and rustic in their style. You simply won't find anything else like this! Highly recommended!

    Volto - Stunning ancient Castle with heated pool
    Price:$225 / night
    Let us tempt you with a truly unique experience: sleeping among the four thick stone walls of a medieval tower! The breathtaking view, the charming and comfortable interiors, sleeping high above, overlooking the world, make staying in the tower absolutely unforgettable.
    {The Abbey} Built in 1146, San Giusto is a medieval cistercian monastery located in a beautiful pristine valley, in Lazio (the region of Rome), 4 km outside the town of Tuscania, in an area called ancient Etruria, or Tuscia Viterbese, a hidden jem in rural central Italy, one hour north of Rome. The building has been restored for the last 20 years by the owners, who now love to share it with lovers of art and nature. All around, fields of lavender, pastures for donkeys and horses. You must have a car to get there: we are in an area where public transportation is not-existant, plus the abbey is 4 km far from the nearest town. {The Medieval Tower} Our most popular apartment, rightly so: sleeping in a medieval tower is a dream and an unforgettable experience. The tower has been recently restored and decorated in respect of the beauty and austerity of a 12th century building: medieval charm and modern comfort. The apartment has 4 floors: living room with a kitchen, 2 bedrooms (each with a bathroom) on the upper floors and a panoramic breathtaking terrace on the magnificent valley. Outside, a patio and a dedicated private area. As a guest, you will experience a relaxed but attentive service in the extraordinary scenery of the tower, enjoying simple and understated luxury; the bedding and other amenities are of the highest quality, breakfast is homemade, prepared using seasonal local and organic ingredients. Please keep in mind that the tower has many stairs to climb. Stairs are quite steep and can be dangerous for small kids. On request, in one bedroom the double bed can be separated in two single beds. Arrangements may be made for dinner -- prix fixe from 40.00 € (advance booking required). ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- - It is important to have a car to get there and explore the area. The nearest town, Tuscania, is distant 4 km. - Keep in mind that this is a tower with 4 floors therefore you will climb a lot of stairs. - Guests have access to the apartment that they will choose, each with a garden area, internet connection. - You can absolutely walk around and explore the abbey, the gardens and the fields of the property. We want you to feel at home. - We have three dogs around the property, normally around the owners. They are really nice, polite and really used to people, and they occasionally bark as a greeting. In the property, in the farming area live donkeys and horses, that our guests love. - Note that guest rooms do not have televisions or telephones. - Event Location: The property and the building can be used as a location for smaller and bigger events like weddings and parties. - Film and photography location: the Abbey is available for film or print shoots.
    The Abbey is located in the Valley of river Marta, just outside the small town of Tuscania, in the heart of the ancient Etruscan territory, or Tuscia Viterbese, a magnificent yet not touristy area: a few km away you can find beautiful beaches, Bolsena Lake, Etruscan treasures (Cerveteri, Tarquinia and many necropolis), medieval towns (Bagnoregio, Viterbo, Pitigliano), Renaissance jems (Villa Lante in Bagnaia, The Monsters park in Bomarzo). We are just between Tuscany and Rome, and many of our guests stop in San Giusto while exploring from Tuscany towars Rome or viceversa. Fiumicino Rome Airport is just one hour drive from our home.
  • We spent 4 nights at the Abbey. A magical stay! The apartment in the tower is functional and charming. The perfect location, the almost incredible silence, the rich and carefully prepared breakfast, all push us to plan a new stay. Thank you so much for the great experience.

    Mila2020-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • It was wonderful. We had great days. Thank you so much!

    Marilyn2020-08-14T00:00:00Z
  • A truly unique experience of staying in a 12th century monastery - highly recommended! It was a true pleasure walking around the monastery and the grounds, and Ippolita and her boyfriend were very nice hosts. The area is also very good for sightseeing with many nice little villages, lakes and parks all reachable within one hour by car. We were the first guests post covid and were the only guests on site (which was fantastic!). As a result of covid however, there is currently no dinner service at the monastery (which the description had not been updated for when we booked it). This might be good to keep in mind as you need to drive to the town of Tuscania (5 min drive) for the nearest restaurant. We had very much looked forward to dinner at the monastery, and not being able to do so slightly ruined the secluded getaway feeling we were looking for. We also had some issues with the wi-fi, air conditioning and hot water supply, all of which I think were attributed to us being first guests post covid. Nonetheless, I would not hesitate to book the tower as all-in-all it was a wonderful experience.

    Parham2020-08-01T00:00:00Z
  • We had such great time at this place! It was stunning! So much history! It was very comfortable and breakfast was amazing! Ippolita was the best host we have ever had! So sweet and helpful!

    Joe2019-12-11T00:00:00Z
  • This place is beyond amazing. The service was spectacular! We had probably the best breakfast of my life. The abbey is updated just enough to make it comfortable but still historic. I would stay here for a month if I could. The dogs really made the stay for us. We are missing our pups at home and it was wonderful having friendly dogs around to pet.

    Gretchen2019-12-03T00:00:00Z
  • Th Abbey is absolutely amazing — our stay was short but magical. Every floor was a lot beautiful, the view from the terrace exceptional, and Ippolita was a wonderful host! Can't wait to go back and spend more time here : )

    Julio2019-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • Oh. My. Heavens. This place was beyond amazing and exceeded all of our expectations!! The tower apartment was a hit with my crew, the grounds are breathtaking, the abbey is a true work of art, and the daily breakfast feasts were the perfect start to each day!!! We have fallen in love with this place-we will be back again!!!!

    Heather2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • The abbey really feels like a castle. We are frequent Airbnb renters and place this rental right at or near the top of our list. If you are looking for a castle experience, this is the place to go. We drove about 1.5 hours north of Rome and found the drive pretty simple. There are short day trip drives to add to your trip experience. Nice hot shower and the entire tower is heated and dry. The breakfast food was great and the owner’s hospitality was fantastic.

    Cahercastle has been standing since the late 1400s One needs to be somewhat crazy to be owned by a castle , itsowned me now for 20 years, anyway it is our home its not perfect, so don't expect perfection ,we do have cobwebs and a little dust (so asthma sufferers take note)We endeavour to make your stay as comfortable as possible Please note when making a request to stay please take time to write an introductory message or have an informative profile We look forward to welcoming you Peter / Eva
    A beautiful, original medieval castle experience can be yours for a weekend, a week, or even longer. You'll be staying in the master bedroom, the highest room in the castle. This castle has been restored to its original state by using traditional materials, and also by using cutting edge technology. We used traditional local stone, limestone, as well as oak beams, to make the castle as traditional as possible, but it also has modern conveniences, such as solar water heating. The castle was built sometime in the 1400's but was refurbished in the last decade. It is comprised of a master bedroom upstairs, with access to the turret, a living room and dining room, two guest bedrooms, and some storage rooms. I'm Peter, your host, and I spent the last ten years refining and refurbishing the castle - the pictures can attest to how well that has worked out. Two room in the castle are still under construction - the storage room downstairs. Remember, this is a castle that is over 600 years old. That means it's not perfect. Castles were never designed with bathrooms and showers, so we've improvised. You'll have to come downstairs to have a bath which is located in the living room - this is the quirkiest part of the castle. You have full private access to the living room,kitchen , bath and your master bedroom Castles are built with solid stone, so there is a huge fireplace with a cooker to keep the place warm and of course underfloor heating complements of our pet Dragon that lives in the dungeon The castle has lots of quirks, its a great and fun place to stay the night. Galway City is a 25 minute drive from the castle which is a very beautiful city. The castle is around a 20 minute drive from Galway Airport, a 45 minute drive from Shannon Airport and Dublin is two hours away. What to expect: lots of winding staircases, a castle that has been lovingly restored, but there are some cobwebs, and it gives you the real Irish castle experience. It's not pristine, its not perfect, but it's a real castle. There are lots of sheep and cows in the nearby fields - but lots of peace and quiet. This is a very unique place to stay. There's nothing like it around, where you can say that you stayed in an actual castle. It's not a tourist attraction (like Blarney Castle) and it's not pristine like a hotel, but you'll have a great time visiting. You'll need a car. The castle is about two miles from the nearest public transport. (Craughwell has both train and buses running regular schedules) I can help with anything like lighting a fire or answering any of your questions. P.S. as this is our home we like to get an idea of who's coming to stay so please write a message of introduction or have a written profile as we do sometimes decline if we just see a one liner and nothing on a profile so to avoid disappointment fill out your profile
    Countryside, farms, cows ,sheep , 3 acre garden, stream , river , trees, And you might see the odd fox, heron, pheasant, rabbit and of course the friendly farmers and neighbours cctv in operation outside the castle
  • Had a great night here. The pictures don't do it enough justice. Great experience to stay in a castle. Peter and Ava were so welcoming and could not do enough for you. Nothing was to much trouble. For something different give this place a visit.

    Tara2021-04-25T00:00:00Z
  • This was just a beautiful experience from start to finish. Great fun, and the hosts were a joy!

    Eilish2021-04-18T00:00:00Z
  • I am blown away by peters castl and peter himself . Peter is such a character that has poured his life and soul into the castle . The work he has done is outstanding. The castle is by far my number 1 Airbnb I have ever stayed in. The castle itself is so beautiful and peter has done a great job keeping it authentic. The bed was so comfy . Peter had left fire logs for the stove for us. I loved the old magazines !! So many games to play 2 nights was not enough for us . Can’t wait to return .

    Ash2021-04-10T00:00:00Z
  • Unbelievable stay, we couldn’t recommend it more. The space was fantastic and very unique and Peter was an excellent and attentive host.

    Matthew2021-03-27T00:00:00Z
  • Pete's work in renovating the castle was remarkable! The place is full of character and he and his family are great hosts (including the cats) . We felt really welcomed and catered for. Will be back to visit in the near future!

    Luiza2021-03-23T00:00:00Z
  • Great Place to stay. Peter is an extremely welcoming amazing host, friendly, helpful, witty, and an all-around great person. Great tour guide of the castle, lots of funny and warming stories. The castle itself is quite the experience, true to its original state and living conditions, we booked for one but ended up extending to two nights as we didn't want to leave so soon. I highly recommend anyone to try an experience like this. Thanks again Peter!

    Ryan2021-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Pete is just a fantastic guy. Him and his family are excellent hosts. Very communicative and friendly. The castle is just amazing! I definitely felt as I was in the medieval ages. We had a very good night sleep. We will definitely be back soon.

    Flavio2020-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • There is nowhere else that you will have an opportunity like this. A 15th century castle. A great place to hang out, relax and imagine what those walls have seen over the last 600 years.

  • The Villa Shalom fifth house is incredible. Its wide spaces and good endowment of the house mean that nothing is missing. You have good coverage from mobile operators to go to work for several days without complications. Great human quality of Patricia and Maria! Thank you very much for the hospitality

    Juan Pablo2021-03-25T00:00:00Z
  • The place was super neat, it had everything you need to cook. very well equipped, enough space. The pool is hardly, it is not so cool, in the end it is about 1.75 m, but it is enough. It has a barbecue area, with very good space. And to put on music it was excellent, everything was super quiet. Mrs. María, who is in charge of the house, is an excellent person, very helpful and attentive.

Thank you very much for everything, we hope to be back soon

  • Patricia is an excellent host, the house is large, beautiful and above all very comfortable. Excellent to rest

    Claudia 2021-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • The fifth is very nice especially the pool area. The spaces are wide, and the air circulates a lot. Communication with Patricia was always very timely. Points to improve: the mattress in the room where we sleep is a little deformed. The pans are not in very good condition. We would definitely return and highly recommend it.

    Natalia2021-01-13T00:00:00Z

  • This review should hold more weight than ever. I was quarentined in this apartment for almost 2 months and I felt at home! Everything you could possibly need to fully live in an apartment is there (kitchen fully equipt), comfortable couch and Netflix, great shower, extremely comfortable bed and an incredible view of the skyline! Amanda went above and beyond as a host, always answering quickly and helped me during this difficult time. The location of this apartment is fantastic next to a supermarket and pharmacy, restaurants and mini mall. The building itself is with security and a super nice pool with a view too! I cant recommend this place enough, I couldn't imagine being quarentined away from home anywhere else in Curitiba!

It's a gorgeous space filled with tasteful and clean furnishing, breathtaking views, well kept landscapes, and lots of spaces to enjoy and celebrate. Plenty of resources for fun, sightseeing, grocery shop, dine out, and feel away from the loud city while having access to city resources. I invite you all to spend some memorable times here, I will be, for sure, a repeat visitor. Cheers!

    Rosa2021-03-26T00:00:00Z
  • Wow! Where do I even start? Claus & Silvia were super attentive always answering our messages in a quick and prompt manner. The place: 2 hrs from Medellin airport which is actually in Rionegro. So it’s very secluded, peaceful and you can actually get away from the city. The Finca is beyond gorgeous, just as you see in the pictures. The entrance makes you feel you’re in a country house in Italy. They have the most amazing, well behaved Dog ever (I think his name is Strike) who accompanied us throughout our stay. The kitchen and bbq areas were squeaky clean and spacious, the pool was awesome and the rooms were great. The balconies in the master room have a complete view of the town. Staff: Carlos, their assistant is beyond helpful, nice and speaks very good English. So it’s easy to communicate. He referred us to Cheider who can buy groceries for you and deliver it to the Finca. His fee is $4 dollars Great! Claus and Silvia also helped us get a driver. His name is Olimpo and that awesome guy drive us around everywhere, was always on time, knows everything and everyone. Didn’t see him use his GPS once. He would take us to the city, wait for us and even got us coffees. All around it was a great experience. Can’t wait to come back. Thank you Claus and Silvia!

  • Everything was simpley great. Beautifully architectural house. About a 45 min ride from Medellin. Pool is cool, but with hot weather is really refreshing. We were 2 couples,but i can see 10 people here with no problem. Carlos the property care taker really went out of his way for us(he does speak English) and was a delight to have. Hot water is available though is spotty but that is normal with Fincas. I would definitely recommend this place and definitely come back for a visit

The hosts, Ron and Linda, are delightful. Respectfully distant but there if you need them. The breakfast Ron delivers is amazing, and you wouldn’t know He’s been were it not for a morning feast ready to get your day started. The stories they have are also captivating. I would not hesitate anyone booking here, you certainly won’t regret it. We hope to come back, and wouldn’t regret a second visit.

    Mark2021-04-18T00:00:00Z
  • The best place to elope to. It’s like the Holiday House- time passes by so fast and you never want leave. The days start with breakfast in an art gallery. I am willing to work a day’s labor in exchange for Chef T’s breakfast served by Ron and Linda. The area is beautiful and there’s plenty to see and do but we found ourselves wandering the property trying to absorb as much of the surroundings as we could. Their love for art, music and each other is obvious throughout the compound. It’s so much more than you can show in pictures or with words. We ended the year and celebrated our wedding in the cupola on New Year’s Eve under a bright moon with the river lit up- You have no idea until you experience it. We will be back.

    Ethan2021-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • This was such a unique and spectacular place. Ron and Linda were great hosts. There are great things to do in the area, but the Mill, itself, is an attraction (with much exploring that can be done). The breakfasts were great as well!

    Todd2020-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • Words cannot do justice to what an incredible place this is. From the 4-story building itself, to the spectacular river just below, to the amazing hospitality of Ron and Linda, we'll never forget our stay at The Kingsley Grist Mill. A couple of highlights: breakfast each morning was filling and delicious, and the concert Ron played for us on his sound system was phenomenal. If you're into music, don't skip the concert. We can't wait to return again in the warmer months!

    Alison2020-12-24T00:00:00Z
  • My partner and I had a fantastic time at the mill! It was very special to get to stay in this wonderful building in its spectacular setting. Ron and Linda were impeccable hosts, and it felt like a privilege to be welcomed into a space that they've clearly put so much of themselves into. We visited just after a snowfall and, for what it's worth, the surrounding roads were all very well-plowed and easily passable in our small sedan. No worries if you're thinking about visiting in the winter and only have two-wheel drive. As many others have mentioned, the lovely breakfasts and Ron's concert for us stand out as one-of-a-kind experiences! They really made this visit stand out from other weekend getaways.

    Peter2020-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • My girlfriend and I have had our weekend at the Grist Mill circled on the calendar for quite some time, but we were completely blown away by what it had to offer and our time spent with Ron and Linda. The mill is a uniquely fascinating space - it has every last detail perfectly thought out. The whole property is so homey and comfortable that we lost track of time often and spent hours admiring the space. But the difference maker came from the hosts, Ron and Linda. They offered so many nice touches, from the renowned breakfast to a personal tour of their musical background, that wowed us away. They truly are just happy and thoughtful people that take hospitality to another level. Thanks for everything, and we can’t wait to be back to learn more

    John2020-12-13T00:00:00Z
  • What else can I say that hasn't already been said by so many other ecstatic guests!? Ron and Linda are incredible. Knowledgable and so very interesting. We adored breakfast every morning and hints for things to do during the day. You MUST have Ron spin you some tunes on his incredible sound system. The space they've created is absolutely breathtaking. The sound of the river will lull you to sleep every night. There's some truly beautiful and interesting art work throughout the house. You'll constantly be discovering things! We adored our five nights there and can't wait to come back! Thank you so much again, Ron and Linda!! Give Sid a treat for me :-))

    Mara2021-04-09T00:00:00Z
  • We had such a relaxing time at Stonehaven, and it was the perfect place to spend extended time with close friends and family. We spent so much time outdoors, and loved that we had our own space secluded from any neighbors or city noise. Stonehaven was the perfect luxury home away from home.

Located in the heart of the gorgeous Granite Dells, this awe-inspiringly beautiful, CaveCastle is built of flagstone and towering natural granite cliffs that create a light, cave-like interior with spectacular panoramic views.

Once upstairs, take in the exultant 360 degree views of the surrounding Dells from the enormous rooftop patio which is ideal for dining, intimate weddings, yoga and sunbathing. Built in 2017 with more heating options to choose from than any home we know: stay cozy with the granite walls and plenty of state-of-the-art built-in-to-the-wall heat in each room wall. Plus, warm up on the silent radiant-heated hardwood floors. Enjoy a flickering fire on the sheepskin rugs by the real wood stove. Cherry kitchen cabinets, granite counter tops, marble hearth and marble entry floors. Bay windows frame in views of tall trees and boulder cliffs. Imagine a living rock wall with plants growing out of it! Plus, several natural waterfalls cascading down the living room, bathroom and kitchen cliffs after each rain! Bathroom features include: hardwood floors, double antique vanities with mountain vistas to enjoy while brushing your teeth, glass block shower entrance walls, quartz pebble shower floors, marble shower walls, and a spacious shower window with views. The dining room features an arched flower bouquet alcove above bookcases built into the dining room beside the bay window which overlooks a flagstone patio with boulders, a garden and views of the canyon's cliffs beyond. Landscaping is comprised of mostly surreal peach-rock granitic hills and with sizable shade trees. Amidst spectacular scenery, three private pastel flagstone patios are connected by winding pathways and simple foot bridges over a seasonal stream. The carport features a natural flagstone floor. Luxuriate in the indoor jacuzzi with inspiring cliff and tree vistas while being soothed by the 10 optional massage jets. Write your book from the custom executive wooden desk built into the bay window with heavenly postcard views. Drift to sleep while taking in the surreal Mars-like views of the boulders and starlit skies from beneath your covers. A trail outside the Cave Castle's door leads to a creek and the world-class Granite Gardens Trails. Walking to, kayaking on, and bicycling around nearby Watson Lake are favorite activities for adventure loving guests. Enjoy full access to the entire 2-story home which comes fully furnished and gracefully appointed.

    The quiet setting is a dream, perhaps especially for hikers, bicyclists, rock climbers, nature lovers, artists, meditators, writers, professionals (who require serenity), vacationers, yoga lovers, retirees and musicians as well as those seeking to build or buy a home in the Prescott area. This is a small hamlet surrounded by wilderness, yet just 10 minutes from downtown Prescott. Humble, country homes grace this friendly, safe neighborhood in a national park like setting featuring canyon cliffs and trails. Located at the very end of a cul-de-sac, this Cave Castle is located in a private wildlife sanctuary called Heaven on Earth where an impressive variety of wildlife abounds. To protect the wildlife and ensure serenity, no pets are permitted at this smoke-free, health-enhancing, serene residence. A private trail leads to mile after mile of the world-class Granite Dells hiking trails that reveal some of Arizona's most extraordinary scenery. Magnificent Watson and Willow Lakes are a little more than a spectacular mile away by hiking, biking or driving. Prescott Airport is conveniently located 4 miles away.
  • beautiful place beautiful area :)

    Courtney2021-04-28T00:00:00Z
  • I'm not sure if there's a more beautiful place to stay or be in the Granite Dells area. Cave Castle is right next to the Granite Gardens area and there's a lot of hiking within walking distance. The home itself has beautiful views, multiple patios and outdoor platforms for outdoor enjoyment. We very much enjoyed the yoga dome for afternoon relaxing and reading. The entire property is beautiful, relaxing and welcoming. The grounds are just beautiful and this is a wonderful place to relax, enjoy nature and spend time with family.

    Kelly N.2021-04-14T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely amazing views and so comfortable. The hosts are personable and accommodating. I truly wish we had more than two nights, it’s one of the most peaceful places you will find. As for the cleanliness, it’s beyond clean, this germaphob is speechless. I look forward to staying here again.

    Carrie2021-04-04T00:00:00Z
  • Such an amazing experience. The place was snug in the middle of a tiny neighborhood and among these amazing rocks so much so that 1 of the walls is made entirely of rock. Very unique spot that had all these super cool organic touches like the soaps, teas, etc. So many minor details that made this stay special. Definitely coming back! Maybe making this a yearly trip! Thank you again!

    Jonathan2021-03-28T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Happy and Free's castle was magical. The architecture itself is so visually stunning - the fact that it's built into the natural rock is incredible. We really loved utilizing the spacious living room for yoga and playing music. The balcony outside is gorgeous -- you can sit on the rocks and enjoy a cup of coffee, while taking in the breathtaking scenery/sunshine-- also such a prime spot to meditate. This was truly unlike any airbnb we've ever stayed in and so memorable. We can't wait to come back!

    Noelle2021-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • Not for you if you have difficulty with stairs. Not for you if you need TV. Other than that it is a magical place in a beautiful setting.

    David2021-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • This is a place worth staying! We had a wonderful time exploring the beauty of the Granite Dells and all Heaven on Earth has to offer! We took our teen daughters and they had endless fun exploring and thought the Castle Cave was a true and one of a kind experience! Happy and Free have everything set up so that it is a true escape from reality. Our family connected on adventure hikes, singing and drumming in the cave and playing board and card games together. If we would have spent a few more days, we would have taken advantage of the additional amenities and offerings from Happy and Free, like their private hiking tours, paddle boarding and yoga! They gave us excellent dining recommendations for some local fare that was fabulous! We highly recommend El Gato Azul! Prescott is a beautiful town with rich culture and worth the trip! We can’t wait to return!

    Emilee2021-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • This Airbnb is absolutely beautiful and I would definitely stay here again if back in Prescott. Beautiful hiking trails just off the property, not far from town, and awesome amenities.

    小婷2020-10-12T00:00:00Z
  • The environment of the castle is very quiet and the traffic is very convenient. The room is stylish and comfortable to sleep; in catching up with the cold wave, Uncle Zeng gave us a quilt. The breakfast made by Uncle Zeng and Auntie is delicious, and the two cats are also super cute. I will recommend friends who come to Jinan to book the castle hahaha~

    2020-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • The castle is really beautiful, the rooms are fairy tales, and the beds are very comfortable. The most important thing is of course the considerate landlord. Uncle Zeng is really very nice. He said that he would drive us out several times, so sweet! ! ! I feel lucky to find this homestay, making this trip to Jinan even better! ! !

    2020-10-03T00:00:00Z
  • Uncle is very enthusiastic! Uncle Zeng’s wife is very beautiful, very young, (˶‾᷄ ⁻̫ ‾᷅˵) if we can maintain such a good attitude when we are old, the house is very big and the design is very considerate, very nice Experience~

    倩雯2020-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • Uncle Zeng was very enthusiastic and took us to see the school. The home is very clean and artistic. Each room has a different style, and there are many delicate decorations that give people a warmth. The location is also very convenient. Worth a visit

    This LaoJia 老家 is a revived Qing Dynasty house in a small fishing- farming village. It sits beside the Li River, amongst the mystical karst mountains. Come here to feel at home in authentic rural China. Other Laojia 老家 locations on Laojia. co
    The building. Our house is a display of Qing Dynasty craftsmanship at its finest. This stone, wood, and brick home has been standing proud for nearly 150 years. Our careful renovation has ensured the continued life and enjoyment of the house in its original beauty. Find Peace. Our place has been designed with an aura of peace in mind. Come here for a break from the Chinese city life and to absorb the countryside around you. Read, write, meditate, and be free in a welcoming setting. Modern Comfort. While preserving the authentic architecture, we've made the upgrades that are necessary for clean and comfortable living. A hot shower, fast internet, and an eye for design in the details. Our 2 houses have 5 bedrooms available for booking, each with a large bed that easily sleeps two guests. Each bedroom has its own private, adjoined meditation and study room in which an extra sleeping arrangement can be arranged if desired. Guests will share a common bathroom and common toilet room. Our 5 bedrooms are listed on separate pages on Airbnb (numbered 1-5), each with its own calendar of availability. Fresh and healthy vegetarian meals are prepared daily (lunch and dinner) by a local woman from our village. The cost of meals is 25RMB (children 10RMB) per person per meal. Breakfast is free and you may help yourself when you wake up - an assortment of local fruits, oatmeal, eggs, coffee and tea.
    Local Life. One of the greatest opportunities you will have during your stay is being able to interact with the locals. Many visitors to China never get to experience the friendly charm of the people in the countryside. Engaging in this opportunity is ultimately up to you. If you would like to interact, you can let the locals know by: leaving the front door open (a beautiful gesture to let them know they are welcome to come and 'chat', even if you don't speak Chinese, body language goes a long way); going on hikes with villagers; walking around the village or through the farmland and saying hello (which usually leads to more); inviting neighbors for tea session (this is very common and not seen as an inconvenience, rather a warm opportunity for greeting and understanding). These are highly suggested and mind opening activities. Epic Scenery. Our village sits on the bank of the most immaculate stretch of the Li River, with a backdrop of famously ominous mountains that can be seen from the open-air living room. It is truly breathtaking to spend some time hiking the undiscovered stone paths into the mountains. Being immersed in the beauty of the natural environment (far beyond the tourism) and the experience of having a local as your guide walking their old stone paths makes for something quite unforgettable. Some activities you may want to explore: hiking in the mountains (untouched by tourism), walking along the river paths, swimming in the river, explore the local cave, take boat tours to Xingping, day trips to Yangshuo and to a nearby organic tea plantation… After making a booking, we will email you a guidebook in which we have written about our history in the village, our house, local life, and activities for guests.
  • Haibo's professional and meticulous help, Xiao Mo's delicious Chinese food tomorrow, Aunt Lu's smile, and mountain climbing with Aunt Xu, exploring, I spent a happy five days in my hometown. This is a human and real place, thank you hometown, thank you everyone !!

    Xiaomin2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • This place in Laojia is a hidden gem and definitely one of the best places we have ever stayed. To get to the area you will have to cross a river that is normally prohibited to cross for tourists but we were allowed since we were staying at this little more than 100-year-old house/Airbnb. This also meant we had a very authentic experience as we were the only foreigners in town. During the day we would hike in the adjacent beautiful mountains (where we even had a local guide in form of a 70-year-old woman from the village to show us around), chill at the Li river or attend the local farmers market in the city. The person responsible for the house was Haibo who made us feel very much at home and was extremely helpful throughout our stay. He furthermore arranged for us to have breakfast, lunch and dinner at the house, cooked by a local woman with only local vegetarian ingredients. Overall, we had an absolutely amazing time at this Airbnb, and I would recommend this place to anyone who loves the outdoors and who would like to get a taste of the local Southern Chinese culture!

    Thomas2019-12-09T00:00:00Z
  • Very beautiful old house, although it is not convenient to come here from any place, but the moment you see it is worth it. It would be great to stay in the room and read a book in a daze, just a few steps to take a walk along the Li River. The villagers are friendly and lovely, and the experience is great. It ’s quite cold in December, so be sure to bring enough clothes

    瑞Rui2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • It was a wonderful stay in a very Chinese Laoshi village for us. The guys are doing great job letting guests to look into the real life of local people, preserving the cultural heritage of this kind of place. Logistics and interactions were organized on the top level. Overall a very pleasant, interesting and inspiring experience! Would definitely recommend going there!

    Olga2019-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • I had an unforgettable stay at Laojia. The landscape is incredible and worth exploring from every angle! It’s completely worth the effort to reach the village to have an extra special experience. The house is quiet and peaceful and I found it an ideal place to unwind and relax. There are plenty of opportunities for hiking and exploring the local area and Haibo and Rae were always available to help plan the next days activities! The staff really make Laojia feel like home with delicious vegetarian food, keeping the house clean and tidy and with their warm and friendly approach. I feel so lucky to have spent time here :)

    Lizzie2019-11-23T00:00:00Z
  • The little house of Laojia is absolute unified and completely nice.... authentic and just different to all other guesthouse. The atmosphere is very cosy and welcome, and indeed you can find a very quit place. For me I was suprised about such beautiful place and everyone should take the mini-chair next to the water machine, lean at the big table and spend a lot of time to watch out of the old wing doors up to"Guilin's" mountains. Everyone should take the long journey to "Laojia" !

    Oliver2019-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time in Laojia, away from the big tourist crowds. The highlight next to this fantastic landscape was definitely the visit to the tea plantation where we could pick our own tea and go through the whole process to completion. It was very interesting and perfectly organized with the help of Haibo.

    Alina2019-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • Haibo is an amazing host. He made our stay incredibly special. The home is beautiful and well cared for. I highly recommend hiking to the top of five finger mountain and night time boat ride with Mao. Everything about the home and the suggested experiences made our stay magical.

  • I wanted to live in Uncle Zeng’s castle during the November holiday last year, but it was not booked. This time the dream has finally come true. Four of us live in an American country + Mediterranean suite. The experience is very good. The bed is comfortable to sleep, the floor is very clean, and it feels like home. I can feel the owner’s full love of life. .

    foolforyou2020-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • I like the American country style room the most. It's nothing to take pictures and clock in, and it's very clean and tidy. Uncle Zeng was also super nice, and worried that we might not take a taxi back to the castle at night, so he insisted on picking us up. For fear of delaying his rest, we took a taxi by ourselves, but in fact, I think the car is quite good.

    俊子2020-08-22T00:00:00Z
  • Uncle Zeng is very nice and attentive. We arrived late at night and are still waiting for us. I highly recommend it!

    孟迪2020-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • Uncle Zeng is super nice. We arrived at the bed and breakfast at night, so I was sent to Kuanhouli because we were afraid that we might not go out to play a taxi. The room is clean and beautiful, very distinctive

    一喆2020-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • The landlord, Uncle Zeng, is very good. Every decoration in the house is detail. I chose a Mediterranean room with various flowers to decorate, which is very girly. It can be seen that the landlord has put a lot of thought into decorating. The light at home is also very warm and comfortable to live in. The location is next to Qianfoshan Scenic Area and the traffic is very convenient! Come again next time!

    2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • Uncle Zeng is very warm and patient, the aunt is very beautiful and elegant, the room is clean and tidy, and it is more beautiful and exquisite than the pictures, and the little sisters feel a good experience

  • The castle is very beautiful and comfortable. My uncle took care of us. Breakfast was delicious. I cooked something myself and it was convenient. The surroundings were also very good. I felt a love of life here.

  • Magical place, amazing area and scenery, amazing host. We really enjoyed ourselves.

  • מקום קסום, אזור ונוף מדהימים, מארח מדהים. ממש נהננו.

  • We came as a group of friends, some single and some couples (9 ppl+2 kids). The space was perfect for our needs, with private rooms and a lot of shared space where we could hang out together, both inside and on the balcony. We loved the area and the facilities, and there were many places to go for short kid-friendly walks around. Mitch was incredibly available for every question and need. We had a lovely vacation, thanks so much!! *Note that the bedrooms are rather small and the walls are thin, so the sound of people in the living room is pretty audible in the bedrooms. It wasn't a problem for us, but maybe something to be aware of.

  • We went as a family of 10 people (8 adults + 2 kids) to Mitch's castle and enjoyed our stay there very much. The place has a great view of orchards and nearby villages, the kitchen was well equipped (even had milk in the fridge), there are enough toilets and showers so it's not too crowded, and basically, we had everything we needed. Mitch was accessible and quick to respond to every question we had. There are lots of things to do in the area and in Zippori in particular. Overall we had a really good time during our stay (especially the kids).

  • Was great, highly recommended. Good cost benefit. There is a beautiful view from the living room and the balcony that you do not see in the pictures.

  • Mitch’ place was really great our group. We had many children, we were 3 families, so the only issue was the acoustics, since every chat going on in the common space was amplified and it was sometimes hard to hear. But on the very bright side, the children has soooo many things to do around and they played outside a lot, so it was just great for us. Mitch was so helpful and kind, the perfect host! Thank you very much.
