the castle is a unique sleeping space for the adventurous at heart. a separate standing structure in the garden. it has a desk downstairs and sleeping space above. the bed is small. not the regular length or width, but when the hatched is closed one can make it very comfy... as we said, adventurous :)... the seating area is outside and it's just steps away to the house for bathroom and kitchen use. listen to waterfalls, bamboo sweeping on the building and an occasional critter scuttle across the roof as you are swept away into magical slumber.
the main house is a great artistic 100 yr old venice craftsman.
frenchdoor entrance through amazing garden.
shared house space,
full kitchen. 2 bathrooms. piano. vaulted ceilings. hardwood floors. delightful pets.
lots of light.
high speed internet

Moments on the rooftops of Paris
On the verandas of Tennessee Williams
Through the alleyways of New York
And the crashing waves of Venice
From house to house without too much fight
Our love passes
With spice and song and laughter
We create within ourselves this art called life
And drink together after
For years we watch, we trade, we cry
We hang out at Billy's
While their world passes by
Our romance intense
The story a steamy one
All on the breeze of a palm tree
Sinking in the ocean with the sun
Should you come to one of our parties
Be you lucky enough to attend
Our special neighborhood
With subtle obscenities
Secretly with the smell of dinner and music
Then you may end up staying
A long while, i may add
And soon it will become difficult to leave this place
Has your heart
Such an excuse
Great location close to Abbott Kinney and the beach. The castle is quite cosy for two people, but suited us fine and was very cost effective. Tracy has bikes available for guests to use which was also great.
THIS IS A PARADISE
TRACY IS A WONDERFUL, CARING HOST
THANK YOU SO MUCH
I was very disappointed with the castle in enchanted gardens. It was a very bad experience. It was tiny, but not in a cute way. The only furniture was a desk to hold a suitcase or backpack. That took up half of the floor space. There was no place to sit, except outside. As mentioned elsewhere, there was an odor. The bed/loft is too close to the ceiling. It would be necessary to crawl off the top step to enter the bed.
I could not stay there. Fortunately I was able to rent a room elsewhere.
Tracy is a lovely host and getting information about the accommodation and neighbourhood was quick and easy. The Castle was cozy enough for my 2 night stay but I can't wait for my next visit so I can try her other available rooms on the same property.
I felt very safe and although I was traveling alone other guests and Tracy were so welcoming and friendly that it couldn't have been a more peaceful and enjoyable experience.
This place is quite nice. The garden and artwork makes it unique. The bed was cosy but a little too short. The cabin had a strange smell but it was probably because of all the rain at the time I was there so we put the heater on to dry it all out. You will get an email with instruction for the check in, there are several codes to get into the house and the rooms. Altogether it's been a good experience, thank you!
Natasha and I had ana amazing time at the castle in the enchanted gardens! It really is a small castle in enchanted gardens (I was an instagram fiend all weekend). The property is flowing with all mediums of art. Simply wonderful. Everything seems to have a specific place and specific meaning. Tracy was a warm and welcoming host. The location was a short walk to the beach and an even shorter walk to Abbot Kinney. I definitely recommend staying here!
Thank you Tracy for your kindness and flexibility. The grounds were beautiful and the space was very well cared for. :)
This place is incredible! I had my own tiny private cottage (the castle) and enjoyed the unique artistic grounds. Beautiful property and very close to Venice beach and Abbott Kinney.
Tracy was accommodating and let me leave my bags for a few extra hours after I had checked out. She was also very friendly and generous. A wonderful person!
Clean, private, convenient, and unique. Would stay here again and highly recommend staying at this Bnb to anyone who is traveling alone or with a partner as it has multiple rooms options.
Thanks Tracy, Ava, and Cassandra!
I was only in the Castle for one night before I switched to a different room in the house (it was a planned switch and didn't have anything to do with my experience). I will say I'm 6 feet tall and had a little difficulty fitting in the bed, but it was better when I turned diagonally.
Tracy is such a hospitable person and certainly an incredibly gracious hostess. If I find myself in the area again, I wouldn't hesitate staying in Tracy's home, but I'd probably try to stay in one of her other rooms before I stayed in the Castle. My experience was fine, I just liked the other room I stayed in better.
Our stay at the castle was amazing. The only bummer is that we couldn't stay longer. The location is ideal: close to the beach, to Deus Ex, to Abbot Kinney, to an Enterprise (car rental), etc. And the house.... wow. Enchanted is the word to describe it. Dream house full of hidden treasures (and sweat pets :) ). Major plus --» Tracy had beach cruisers waiting for us; that just made my day. One thing to know, though, before booking, if you're very tall, you should consider booking another available room in Tracy's kingdom, the castle being a very tiny (but super charming) space.
I recommend totally.
See you next year, I hope.
