Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for renting your beautiful home to our family! We loved every bit of our visit here. Everywhere in this house, we saw evidence of your love for your family and your love for the Lord Jesu Christ. Our stay at "Luberon Castle" could not have been more perfect. Thank you for your part in his wonderful family celebration. We will cherish the memories of our time here gathered as a family from around the globe.

We absolutely loved this home and the location. It was beautifully decorated, very enjoyable!

  • 5 of 5

This house was more than we had hoped for. It had a luxury cabin atmosphere, surrounded by tall trees and vineyards. We all fell in love with the high ceilings and spacious rooms. The huge kitchen that my boyfriend, who is an executive chef, had the greatest time cooking in, is fully stocked with anything you need to make a homemade feast. The living room was inviting and comfortable that no one wanted to leave. Plenty of parking and the Bonus apartment is super cute and came in handy! We would come back to S. Carolina just for this house!!

Norma was also very prompt at answering all my questions and was very helpful. Norma seems very seasoned in vacation rentals, her welcoming folder was very informative and it covered everything I wanted to know. I appreciated the organization.

I would recommend this home to anyone with a big family, multiple families getting together, or girls week or a boys week. We were all very sad to leave this beautiful house, hopefully we will be back again!

Great care and craftmansship went into creating such a welcoming home. From the moment we entered we felt comfortable.

Whether taking advantage of breakfast together at the kitchen island, relaxing on the screened in porch, or having some laughs playing pool in the bonus room, we truly enjoyed our stay..

Thank you,

John R. Galik

We absolutely loved the home, the amenities and the view. It was a perfect gathering place.

This home was absolutely perfect for us!

We enjoyed the gathering and social time we had in the kitchen. Everything I needed was available to me!

We used the home to celebrate my daughters birthday and bachelorette weekend.

Preparing breakfast was delightful, and being able to ALL eat together was wonderful.

The homeowner was wonderful to work with. We will definately be renting again for family gathering in the future.

Beautiful private home in serene setting

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year staying here and it's just as beautiful as we remembered. We have everything we could possibly need and the seclusion makes for a relaxing trip. It is the perfect place to stay whether a large group, or small. We will be coming back next year for sure!
