AMAZING WONDERFUL: RAPUNSEL CASTLE

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 4 weeks ago
What a great stay we had. It exceded all expectations and photos can not give justice to it. The detail is absolutely amazing and our hosts have thought about everything. You can see that a lot of research and time and effort went into it. From the "Prince's chamber" downstairs to Rapunzel's bedroom upstairs and all in between was amazing. Rapunzel's crown was on our bed and we had great fun taking photos of "the new princesses". We even saw the witch (without her powers).The kitchen was fully equipt and rooms and bathrooms lovely decorated with the theme. A trip worth while

If ever you wish to spoil yourself, consider staying at Rapunzel's castle in Clarence. We were pleasantly surprised at not only the phenomenal decor that brought the fantasy to life, but also the attention to what guests may require.
The coffee machine, bag of charcoal, full sherry decanter, fire starters, and lighters etc etc.
During my stay, we received a call from the owners to check if we were 100% happy. That was really appreciated.
Photos don't do this place justice!! The views are incredible. STAY HERE!!

5-star rating is an understatement and does not do justification on expressing how beautiful, luxurious, and comfortable this place is. What a gem in a private quiet setting and the most beautiful scenery.
They thought of everything you will need. Excellent arrangement to make your arrival smoothly, thoughtful hosts. Being in a space with no one else around was also a real privilege, and much appreciated.
We look forward to staying with you again….

Before staying with friends at the golf estate, we decided to try out some of the other unique places in Clarens that we hadn’t tried out before.

We had a choice of the Rapunzel Tower and the new Aladdin’s Palace, which we were thankfully allowed to view before choosing. Whilst the Rapunzel Tower was beautifully designed, we opted for the new establishment.

Aladdin’s Palace was so well thought out, taking the views into consideration and the whole design ethos. Carry your own food as you would not want to leave the place once you get there.

If you’re looking for a unique stay in Clarens, then the Castle in Clarens is a sure bet.

The slip road is not tarred and you would need a really slow short drive but with a 4x4, then it’s a breeze. All part of the adventure.

Well done to the owners Manie and Waldo. If you don’t want to stay here then also try out their other property which is Titanic View - Place of Peace, which we also coincidentally booked. You will be blown away by the views and the Japanese Garden.

Room tip: Slip road is not tarred, so travel slow with small Car otherwise a breeze for a 4x4. Take your own food as you want to go out.

As you open the door you are transformed into a wonderful jaw dropping experience. Everywhere you look and go you in awe of the taste and detail that takes you into a romantic fantasy. You have to go there.
