We really enjoyed staying at this property! This was our first time booking through HomeAway and we were beyond satisfied. Property manager was available and even came by to drop off his own personal pump for our pool rafts, there was plenty of space, beds, pillows, towels,etc. House was very clean and stocked beyond expectations with kitchen wares and a plethora of fridge and freezer space! Walking distance to the grocery store, quiet area, easy beach access and close proximity to shopping and food if you choose not to cook. We actually only left to go get groceries the property was so enjoyable we stayed in all day everyday!!!We will definitely be booking through the site again and hope to return to this specific location!
Amazing place to stay.
We had a group of 15 adults stay for 4 nights at the castle. Everything was wonderful! We had Michael and John prepare a couple meals for us and they were delicious and reasonably priced. We wished we had asked them to cook more for us! We spent lots of time in the pool, took a couple walks to the beach, and rented paddleboards from nearby to use on the river. Our only complaint was the dock to get in and out of the river is black plastic and is too hot to stand on during the day.
What an amazing property. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with all the amenities and comfort of home toppled with luxurious add ons. We highly recommend this property for large family gatherings or special functions.
Thank you for allowing us to stay at your home.
We chose Michael's Castle on the Middle River (the "Castle") to facilitate a three generation party of sixteen adults over Christmas and New Years, 2018-2019. I'm no stranger to 5 star accommodation and I state categorically that the Castle exceeded our expectations in every way.
We were blessed with very favorable weather during the entire course of our stay (11 nights) and while the beach is only a short walking distance, it was difficult to pry anyone from the comfort and amenities of the riverside pool.
Michael made it abundantly clear that he was always available if we required anything but, as it turned out, the home provided all that was needed. Did I mention that we were able to commune with a couple of manatee (yep) right at poolside?
If you're looking for a magnificent property in Florida with the perfect host (ie: he left us alone) the Castle is perfect.

Outstanding as usual !!
This was my groups 3rd time staying in the castle and it always blows our minds as to how impressive the property is kept. For a rental the property is clean and well maintained. I have a group of 16 guys that come down for a golf trip and the castle accommodates everyone and we never feel crowded. The property is close to the beach and all restaurants and bars. I highly recommend this property for anyone traveling to Fort Lauderdale that wants to feel like a king !!!
The pictures don’t speak to how awesome the castle is!
Our crew stayed at the Castle for the Bears vs Dolphins game for the weekend. First the location was excellent. It was in a great neighborhood, and was beautifully situated on the Middle River, located only minutes from shopping, 15 minutes from downtown Ft. Lauderdale and 20 minutes from the FLL Airport.
The home was beautiful and spacious and clean with pool and Jacuzzi patio that was very spacious, and multiple balconies and decks across the property including a rooftop terrace with a beautiful view of the area. There were enough bedrooms to accommodate the 10 of us that stayed on the property over the weekend, with each bedroom having an individual bath that was well stocked with towels.The massive amount of space allowed for large gatherings of the group comfortably, while allowing individuals to get away in other parts of the house when they wanted privacy without being disturbed. Also there was a spacious kitchen which allowed for cooking for large groups as well as a large grill for barbecuing which we took advantage of.
This property was the center of our entire weekend as it offered the space and amenities we needed for our enjoyment, we had a great time. We cannot wait to come back. It is the best!
