We have just had a 4 night break at Red Gap Cottage, Castletown, what a great location close to most of the ports with views of the cost and just a walk to the airport for those who fly. The cottage was perfect for us and so well equipped. I was pleasantly surprised that there was a downstairs cloakroom and pedestrian access to the gardens from the side of the cottage for the mobility scooter.
This cottage had a real home from home feel and very close to Castletown with local shops for most of your needs. Great handover from the owner Kim with time spent explaining all those need to know things. we love the island and will be booking again!
We have rented many houses and are often let down by some detail or other, usually uncomfortable mattresses or lack of cleanliness. This cottage exceeded expectations and rates as one of, if not the best we have stayed in. Right from the booking enquiry, the owner was prompt with responses and attentive to requirements. She welcomed us personally which is a rarity these days. The house was impeccably clean, quiet and comfortable.
It is a very minor point but it is a shame that we were advised not to light the wood burner. Although it wasn't needed as the heating system is so good, we like a cosy fire of an evening. The owner explained that it had potential to cause mess which we respected. The back garden has potential to be a very nice sitting area but is a bit sterile. Again, we understand that this keeps maintenance down and is easier to keep to standard but a shame nevertheless.
The lovely town and harbour are within easy walking distance from the cottage or a very short drive with parking at all town amenities. Very pleasing and interesting town.
Red gap cottage is outstanding. We were greeted with a short welcome tour and really appreciated the food essentials that had been supplied and the beautiful vase of fresh flowers! The cottage is cosy and equipped with everything that might be needed, the standard of which was excellent. I'm quite pernickety and often clean everything as soon as I arrive; didn't need to do this at Red Gap. I would heartily recommend this property and not hesitate to re-book.
When traveling to Isle of Man look no further, this is the place to stay. Kim is a wonderful hostess and the cottage is beautiful and cozy. Would stay there again when visiting the island. Great value for money.
Thank you Kim!
