Great property!

  • 5 of 5

Michael and his team were amazing. I would recommend it for a family vacation or as a special event venue. Michaels team also catered a large birthday event as well as several smaller breakfasts for us. He never said no and was great to work with. Thank you guys.

A Truly Magical Experience at the Castle on Middle River in Fort Lauderdale!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented Michael's castle to accommodate and entertain family and friends over the extended weekend of our daughter's wedding held 19MAY2018, which was also our 34th wedding anniversary. Our family and friends constitute hard working, middle class professionals and tradesmen who have quite constrained opportunities to experience this level of luxury, which to us was commensurate with our best hotel stays (e.g., the Plaza in New York City; the Breakers in Palm Beach, FL; the Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, WV; the Grand in Point Clear, AL) with one exception to those hotels: we had the castle to ourselves! Michael and his staff (Johnny and team...shout out to you all!) provided utterly phenomenal hospitality, which included excellent banquet/catering services for the wedding reception. Their combined passion for great customer service [including maintaining a great sense of humor :)] made the stay in this gorgeous riverfront castle a truly magical experience! We highly recommend a stay at Michael's will be VERY pleased you chose to do so...fact NOT fiction! PS/FYI, I may be wrong, but the top deck of the castle appears to be the highest elevation for a significant distance within the surrounding area (i.e., awesome 360 degree views and great place to hang out and relax, especially at night)! V/R, Ed H., Father of the Bride :)

Lovely, larger home with plenty of intimate seating from the rooftop down!

  • 5 of 5

My family rented this incredible house in late March 2018 for a birthday celebration. Great location on the Middle River and close to beaches. Quick Uber ride from the Fort Lauderdale airport. Nicely accommodated 12 adults and one teenager. Great kitchen work space with multiple ovens and dishwashers, laundry room, dishes galore, outdoor grill and anything else you might need. Parking is plentiful. Owner Michael is very accommodating and a gracious host. We were even able to drop off luggage early. Tons of private little spots to sit and relax on the multiple balconies, three living room areas and river front patio. Quiet neighborhood. Shopping and restaurants nearby although we barely left the grounds! Highly recommend. Well worth the cost.

U GOTTA DO IT!!!! We did July 4th week 2016 and it was WOOOHOOOOO!

  • 5 of 5

Where to begin. WOW!! It really is a castle!!! It was awesome. Michael, Rob, Mike's Sister, Bob, were all awesome. From start to finish Mike helped in everyway possible. He was easy to get a hold of email but better and faster by phone. There was never a time he didn't pick the phone up when I called him. He answered all my questions always and was very nice. We also had him and his team cater breakfast for us it was amazing. If you stay here you gotta do it. Well worth it every morning. Its great to wake up to a buffet breakfast when you have 11 PPL with you and 2 kids. Everyone had a wonderful wake up. We welcomed them all like family into our family and had so much fun at breakfast with them. The Castle is awesome and every single one of us did not want to leave at the end of the stay. We were there for the 4th of July went on roof at dusk to watch the fireworks from 12 locations it was amazing. And the view was awesome of the river. It was the best vacation any of us have ever had. I will say there is a bit of a ANT problem there. But Mike was called and that day Bob was out spraying for us. But be aware the ants like to bite :( other then that it couldn't have been more perfect really. There are places to eat everywhere within 5 minutes of the castle by car. And a Gallery Mall within 5 minutes of walking. Beach is close enough to walk or drive. But be in good shape for the walk its about 1 and half miles. The pool and hot tub are amazing. My guys fished off the dock there from morning to night they loved it couldn't get enough. There was nothing I could complain about the place is clean and the elevator was great no problems with it at all. We all wish we were still there I cried when I left lol. Plenty of towels and plenty of everything to get started. Chefs kitchen which we used and it was great. Parking we had 1 LG SUV, 1 LG MINI VAN, AND 1 FULL SIZE CAR ALL FINE. We had 11 PPL and could have fit 20 or more in the Castle comfortably. Can't thank Mike enough for everything an all those who we inter acted with. Everyone was awesome we are all very thankful. Hoping to do this again some time in the future one day. It was all worth the money and the trip. If you are planning a vacation look into to the Castle you won't be sorry you did it. I read the reviews and they were all good and I was skeptical till I got there and saw it was all we hoped it would be.

Super Bowl College Reunion

  • 5 of 5

Outstanding weekend stay over the 2016 Super Bowl weekend. Eighteen of us stayed in this amazing house and another eight were housed at a classmate's residence less than a mile away. The castle provides a perfect venue for large groups to gather, mingle and socialize. Close proximity to the beach, parks, shopping malls and restaurants allowed easy access for a variety of activities. With our large group we found no need to try and go out to a restaurant due to outstanding kitchen facilities in the castle. Next time we'll have to avail ourselves to Michael's reputedly superior catering skills. Our group has held regular reunions over the years and the consensus opinion was that the Modern Castle on the Middle River will require a do over!

Amazing house and incredible food!

  • 5 of 5

Highly, highly recommend this house. The house will take your breath away. Its not only huge but the decor is amazing. Awesome backyard with a nice pool and hot tub. The ocean is a mile away. We stayed here for a corporate retreat. Michael was very professional and responsive throughout the whole process. Our entire team absolutely loved the house. The living room worked perfectly as a meeting area, Michael had no problem with us rearranging the furniture. We had lunch and dinner catered by Michael and it was incredible. There was more than enough food for everyone and he was very accommodating to food restrictions or dietary issues. We'd recommend this house to any company. Love to stay here again!
