“Beautiful, well appointed cottage within a 5 mins walk of Castletown centre.”
Reviewed July 6, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Red Gapp is a beautiful traditonal Manx cottage on the edge of Castletown - it is about 5 mins into the centre. Kim has thought of everything, the cottage is equipped with everything you could possibly need and it is the little touches - the welcome pack, the fresh flowers, the sweeties - that make it special. The beds are comfortable and the cottage is impeccably clean - the bathroom is large and functional, with toiletries and a great view from the bath across to the sea! Castletown has 2 supermarkets and several pubs serving good beer - we found it a really good base for exploring the island. The weather helped as it was glorious sunshine for most of the week. I would have no hesitation in recommending Red Gapp cottage.

lovely welcome by Kim - tour of cottage and were everything is and how it works plus a welcome hamper. Cottage was spacious spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated and everything you would need. Little extra left for you to help yourself in case you forgotten anything - even shoe polishes etc. brilliant - Kim was so helpful and nothing was to much for her. Thankyou Kim

“Clean and comfortable cottage, very well equipped.”
Reviewed April 10, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Kim met us at the cottage and gave us a comprehensive tour. The welcome pack is generous and the kitchen very well equipped. Everything is comfortable and clean.
The road outside can be a little noisy in the mornings but this is made up for by the convenience of the location - a ten minute walk to the shops and bars in Castletown and a ten minute drive to the airport.
I would recommend staying here and would do so again.

“Perfect cottage in a perfect location.”

Red Gap is a picture postcard pretty cottage in a great location. The cottage is clean, well-furnished and is equipped with everything that you may need for a comfortable family self-catering holiday. The Welcome Pack was a lovely and much-appreciated bonus - we all loved the Manx bread. We were staying as a family of 5 to celebrate a special birthday and the owner's restaurant and taxi recommendations were spot on.
Castletown is a really interesting place to explore - there's so much history to discover and some great little places to eat and drink.
All in all a beautiful cottage for a relaxing break.

“Ideal base for business and pleasure”
Reviewed March 14, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

The facilities at the cottage are superb. We were staying on business mixed with a few days of tourism and pleasure. It was handy having a base to work from which did not require set meal times or restrictions offered by other types of accommodation. The cottage is well placed for easy access to other parts of the island. There were plenty of places locally to eat out if we needed to. I would highly recommend this cottage if you are looking for all of the creature comforts of home from home.

“Best rental so far!”
Reviewed February 10, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We regularly travel and always prefer to self cater rather than hotels. We have family on the island visit regularly and having lived here know it well so we are not the usual holiday people. We found this gem via www and what a find. We are a couple with high standards and this cottage met every expectation. Kim goes to great lengths to provide a welcome and every small detail is met from a bottle of wine in the fridge to those extras in the bathroom so easily forgotten. We loved the personalised welcome too,! This cottage is so well equipped with so much thought and everything is of the highest standard. We will be booking again. Why would we go anywhere else!
