Breathtaking California Is Just the Beginning

Southern California beaches defy description, and nestled in Solana Beach is a mansion unlike any other. On a truly extraordinary setting is the place for your next gathering, meeting, workshop or escape. A home of unique design, amenities too numerous to list, and a myriad of intimate settings, each with exacting attention to every luxurious detail. It’s all the strength, wealth, and character you’d expect from a castle and so much more.

The W1SE Castle has been home to purpose-driven people and vibrant gatherings. Its atmospheric elegance naturally fosters personal growth, supports conscious business, and inspires creative collaboration. Artists, entrepreneurs, thought leaders, healers and musicians innovating, collaborating and creating. A place that stirs the soul, rekindles memories, invites new ones and can trigger adventurous thinking and bold action. 

Discovered Turning Adversity into Opportunity

In 2020, when COVID was raging, Alex Dovgal, a successful Chicago entrepreneur, had reached the breaking point. Burned out by work, disheartened by a divorce, and experiencing bouts of depression, a retreat revealed his new way forward. He relocated to San Diego to find a brighter future there. The W1SE Initiative was born, and the W1SE Castle became its home.

From his first visit to the castle, he was instantly captivated and mesmerized. The castle offered the space he needed for the diverse projects and endeavors that fascinated him and reignited his energy and vision. A passionate musician, the castle’s state-of-the-art recording studio is but one example of its vast potential. Kindred spirits were drawn to what became the epicenter of W1SE, the World Initiative for a Sustainable Earth.

The Castle Is a Place for Exploration and Change

Walking on the beach one morning, Alex met a priest discouraged by the lack of a service venue. Alex responded with an invitation to use the Castle, proclaiming, “Our home is like a church,” and five months of Sunday liturgies followed. Soon after marrying his wife Amalia and welcoming their son Solomon into the family, they decided not to live in the Castle but transform it into a sanctuary for amazing people and extraordinary events.

The W1SE Castle became a center for innovation and creation, and a wide variety of IT projects were strategically conceived, designed and prepared for launch there. A haven for retreats, wellness events, and discussions hosted by luminaries like Nassim Haramein and Steve Rodgers. Grammy-nominated, genre-defying artists crafted music as innovators delved into cutting-edge technologies, blockchain, and Web3 projects. As one guest said, ‘Good projects are born in garages, but the best in castles.’ 

A Castle Transformed into an Experiential Canvas

Alex created an immersive environment, breathing new life and great energy into the castle and its once-plain white walls. Renowned artists like Chris Dyer adorned them with his stunning work. Diversity of culture and futuristic artistic and intellectual expression finding a nurturing new home in The W1SE Castle.

Acclaimed interior designer Martha Martin played a pivotal role in enhancing its overall design, tapping its energy, unleashing its soul, and finding its vibe. Innovators and creators seeking inspiration found it. The W1SE Castle has witnessed the birth of almost every creative pursuit, from movie scripts to business solutions, dynamic music to celestial art, moments of healing and the creation of bold initiatives benefiting humanity, like W1SE.   

How Melodies Can Heal, Empower, and Transform Lives

The W1SE Castle’s music studio delivers an unparalleled experience that truly transcends the ordinary. This crowning jewel of the castle is a state-of-the-art music studio, masterfully brought to life by Alex and his father from the ground up, undergoing a complete renovation. Renowned as one of the foremost studios in San Diego, the W1SE Castle Music Studio is fully equipped to cater to the needs of every artist. With an abundance of inspiring artwork adorning its walls and provisions for overnight stays, the studio provides an immersive environment conducive to artistic exploration. Noteworthy Grammy-nominated musicians such as Moyenei Valdes and Tiano Bless, Snow Raven, have graced its chambers with their musical prowess.
