A suitable base for exploring Isle of Man. Jean is a diligent landlord and eager to please tenants. The few peculiarities of the place, such as figuring out how to use the television, are not a detriment but kind of fun.
We stayed at the property from 11th July to 14th July 2016 as a couple with a small baby.
From the moment we booked the property we found the experience to be very professional, we were a bit wary that there we no reviews at this time but we later found out we were the first holiday makers in the property.
The owner Jean-Paul was very attentive leading up to the visit, making sure we had all the information we needed.
Upon arrival we were met by Aneta who showed us around the apartment and made sure we had everything we needed before leaving us to enjoy our holiday. She also gave us her number for emergencies which was nice.
The apartment is a great size for a little family (It has a cot and high chair upon request), its wonderfully clean and has great facilities (Family bathroom, separate equipped kitchen, TV, dining table etc).
Its has its own parking space if you are travelling with a car and is 5 minutes walk to the Villa Marina in the centre of the promenade in Douglas. It also has lovely views out to sea which we were not expecting as they were played down in the advert on TA.
Around the corned on the main walk into the promenade are a number of take-aways (The Chinese on the corner was very nice) and the Titan restaurant which was very good and reasonably priced.
If in a car with SAT-NAV Victoria Court does not show up, you are best to put in Princes Road and then take the right onto Marathon Avenue, the apartment is about halfway down on the right down the very steep drive leading down to it.
The Titan restaurant is extremely good and is just around the corner (17:00-18:45 is early bird specials).
During the day the Downtown Cafe offers really good food at reasonable prices.
Also beware a lot of the public conveniences in Douglas charge for their use so always have some change...as you can tell we didn't.
Lastly i would say if you are a couple or small family this apartment is lovely, ideally placed and we will be returning to it on our next visit to the IOM.
