“Lovely Cottage, well maintained”
Reviewed 28 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

This cosy cottage is beautifully maintained by the owner who clearly takes great pride in it. She welcomed us, showed us how everything worked and we had no hassles from start to finish. Inside the owner has mixed a cosy cottage feel with modern fittings and features. We were a family of 4 and there was plenty of space.

“Spotless and supremely comfortable, very warm welcome, one of the best cottages we have ever booked.”

This cottage is even better than it looks. The photographs can't do justice to the level of personal attention to detail that the owner adds to a cottage which is already warm, cosy and spotlessly clean and furnished with everything you could need for a happy stay. We will certainly use it again!

“Idyllic cottage for a great getaway”
Reviewed 4 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

person found this review helpful

We stayed for 3 perfect nights at the end of October. The weather was definitely seasonal but the beauty of the cottage, meant that it didn't matter.

The cottage is very clean and has obviously been renovated by someone who knew what they were doing. The kitchen, bathroom and utility have all the modern features but the cottage loses none of its traditional charm. It has everything you could think of or want, including free wifi (which was an unexpected bonus).

The views from the back are over the fields and out to sea and it is only a ten minute walk into the centre of Castletown for pubs and shops.

Booking and collecting the keys was easy and the welcome pack of food (and wine) was really appreciated after a rough crossing.

We both have said that we intend to come back here again soon.

“Even better than home from home!”
Reviewed 24 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

The owner's friendly personal welcome which awaited our arrival immediately set the tone for a very pleasant and most comfortable six day stay at Red Gap Cottage. The cottage and its contents are of the highest standards I have ever seen in UK rental properties ,with the most comprehensive inventory.
.A ten minute walk took us into the centre of Castletown where two small supermarkets easily met with our requirements - the Castle itself is of course a major attraction of interest. We were however disappointed with the lack of quality restaurants in the wider local area.
We would have no hesitation whatsoever in returning to Red Gap Cottage or recommending it to friends.

“Charming Cottage Retreat”
Reviewed 23 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

My family recently stayed at this charming cottage just outside Castletown. It was the perfect place for our family of 5 adults to stretch out and relax after full days of exploring the island. The home was well stocked with thoughtful amenities, very clean and appears to have been recently remodeled. It is close to a bus stop and only about a 7-10 minute walk to the center of Castletown. The owner was very thorough and helpful. I would not hesitate to recommend this wonderful home.

“Perfect break in a perfect location in a perfect cottage!”
Reviewed 17 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We stayed at Red Gap Cottage for 4 nights during August and just wished we were staying longer. The booking process with Kim from the beginning to arriving at the cottage to departure was a pleasure. The cottage is in a peaceful area and as previous reviewers have said every attention to detail has been thought of. The little touches Kim adds for your arrival mean a lot - when you arrive you feel welcomed and greeted by a 'welcome pack' of essentials, flowers and as many little extras (and more) you could possibly need plus a personal and friendly meeting from Kim who takes her time to carefully show you all you need to know.
The cottage has definitely a 'home from home' feeling which makes you feel relaxed straight away. The cottage is spotlessly clean throughout and tastefully decorated with the added bonus of comfortable beds. I would not hesitate at staying at Red Gap Cottage again in the future and would be disappointed if it was not available when we chose to visit the Isle of Man - which is the downside of writing a review as I almost want to keep it a secret but I valued the reviews I read when I was booking (which were all exactly true) so I felt I wanted to do the same for Kim and others to enjoy the same experience as we did.
I would definitely recommend the cottage to friends and family.

“Once again, great stay”
Reviewed 6 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

This cottage now appears to have become the stop off point for us each time we come to the island to visit with our family. It has absolutely everything we need with such thoughtful touches from Kim, such as fresh flowers and fruit as well as the much appreciated welcome pack after a long journey. It is impossible to compare this holiday rental with any other as it is superb and if you are reading this, don't dither anymore, just book it! You won't be disappointed.
