We stayed for five days in September. The whole place was spotless, nicely decorated and really great for our toddler, given the playground outside. The fully equipped kitchen was really useful, as we were able to cater for ourselves, which was cheaper to do and easier to manage with a one-year-old. John, our host, was extremely friendly and helpful. All... More

The personal was friendly; the room (double superior in the first floor) was very big and nice. We slept well until the neighbors up were starting walking (wooden floor noise). Next to the room is a balcony with nice view over the Bran castle.

Wonderful villa, exceptional and helpful owners, ideal for children, clean, a pleasure altogether. The garden is as well kept as the house and everything is practical. This is how tourism should look like in all of Romania! Thank you!

Excellent 4 stars villa above our expectation, great time to stay, very quiet, professional service, easy access to tourist attractions and shopping souvenirs. The villa has really a good place to sleep. We found the room very clean and spacious. We like more the garden with rocking chairs and landmark with Castle Bran which we see it from our room....

Room was spacious with view on the Bran castle, bathroom a bit small with slopped ceiling making it hard on your head if not careful. All spotless clean, very comfortable beds and great light down comforter. The only problem of the room for me was that the shades were sun shades not light shades/curtains so at 6am I was awake...

The villa isn't well insulated, you can hear almost every noise, both inside and outside. Trash was taken only after we asked. Every shower bathroom floor was full of water - probably a problem shower.

My husband and I stayed here in October and it was amazing. When we were there, we were the only people in the house and our room had an amazing view of Bran castle. The host was very nice and breakfast was great.
