My fiance and i were really exited to visit The Gatekeepers Castle .We had waited weeks for the trip , and were not at all let down. Driving up to the castle is like an image from a Disney movie...bright purple and yellows catch your eye,the grounds alive with trees and beautiful decorations.I especially loved the meditation circle....it looks like a place where bad days dont happen,a place thats meant to be enjoyed . It really is a breath of fresh air. The hosts are friendly warm hearted people who really made the stay comfortable. On the castle interior there was so much to look at and do, that i wasn't bored for a second.The tour was wonderful and the lovely gatekeeper who guided us was very thorough and showed us all the great views while explaining the layout and history of the castle.we stayed in the dungeon which was much cooler than any pics can show... The morning walk to the beach was especially sweet it is filled with beautiful wooden sculptures that make up a rather long fence and the beach was crisp and clean.All in all the journey is worth it if your anywhere near the area this is a must. I'm urging all my friends to go see this magical place for themselves. You wont regret or forget the trip:) we can't wait to visit again:) its truly a privilege.
