“A Perfect Base”
Reviewed April 17, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

So much about Red Gapp Cottage is just lovely - it is a characterful Manx cottage that is extremely comfortable and well equipped, and is in a perfect position for enjoying Castletown and the south of the Island. The owner, Kim, is wonderfully welcoming and very responsive to helping with any issues.

“Quiet and welcoming home full of extra comforts - excellent.”
Reviewed April 10, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

A lovely comfortable and welcoming home that is well equipped. Easy to access from the airport. Kim made us feel very welcomed taking time to take us around the home. Beautiful flowers were in the living room plus a welcome pack of food and wine that started the holiday off well. The beds were so comfortable that a great night sleep was had each night. The cottage is situated about 5 minutes walk to the centre of Castetown and the coastal path is only about five minutes walk away - this is stunning and a must for all visitors. A lovely holiday was had and the time went too quickly but we felt very much at home in Kim's lovely cottage and would recommend the cottage to everyone - you will certainly feel relaxed and rested!

“Immaculate and well equipped cottage in beautiful Castletown”
Reviewed March 31, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

person found this review helpful

Myself and my partner stayed here for five nights over March, we were shown around the cottage and told that if we needed any local information then all we had to do was ask. I spent holidays on the Isle of Man as a child, but it was my partners first time and I was eager to show him the beauty and history of the island. Castletown is a wonderful place to stay, lighthouses, an impeccable medieval castle, and I highly recommend Leonardo's restaurant for a great dinner. The cottage was absolutely spotless and as someone who loves to cook, I found all the necessary equipment and more in the large kitchen. The bed was comfy and the huge bathroom with separate bath and shower had wonderful views onto the country side at the back of the house. If I were to give any critique it would be that (for summer BBQs especially) the garden could do with some plants and greenery as currently it is rather plain. Castletown is a great location for getting around, Peel to the West and Douglas to the north, you'll find this great for either driving to other places, or walking to nature reserves like Scarlett Point (wonderful for the budding ornithologist). Thank you Kim for a wonderful holiday.

“Our second stay, and already looking forward to the the next!”
Reviewed October 13, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

It was a pleasure to stay in such an extremely clean, well furnished and organised cottage.
We had such a relaxing, comfortable time in the cottage it was a real wrench to leave.
We are already planning our next visit.

“A comfortable, relaxing stay in a home-away-from-home”
Reviewed September 1, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

A very clean and comfortable cottage, with a high quality, well equipped and spotless kitchen and bathroom. A good size for four adults. Kim met us on arrival and did a great job of making us feel welcome and she supplied a generous welcome pack. The lounge is very cosy with decent chairs and sofa - unlike the cheap, saggy seating you often find in holiday lets - so it's perfect for those nights when you feel like staying in. We have family on the island and would book this property again for future visits.

“The best holiday let we've ever stayed in”
Reviewed August 4, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This was our third two-week stay in Red Gap Cottage. As usual all was perfect from the personal welcome by Kim, the starter goody pack, the high standard of the kitchen ware and appliances, the quality of the linen and, my favourite, the bathroom complete with the best 'loo with a view' you could possibly want. Have already recommended to friends and family. We will be back again in 2016.
