We had a week on the island for the Southern 100. Five of us(two couples and a single) stayed and we found the cottage in be perfect for our needs. The kitchen is large and very well equipped. The lounge is comfortable and the beds fantastic. Easy parking outside and a good selection of local eateries etc within walking distance.
The only slight negatives that must be considered are:
1) the stairs are tight with a difficult turn and very small steps. Not a problem for us but I can imagine that if you are large or have difficulty with balance they could prove to be impossible.
2) the en suite bathroom is very small. No elbow room whatsoever and I would say that if you are much above average size you would be unable to use it. The shower in the main bathroom is also limited for height by the ceiling.
We loved the cottage and would return again.
We wanted a base in Laxey near the harbour and this cottage fulfilled that desire. It is a lovely recent conversion with a very well equipped kitchen. The sitting area downstairs was very aesthetically pleasing. There were a few issues which Nikki took immediate steps to address. Though our friends found the ensuite shower rather small, as a previous visitor had noted - the bathroom with shower over bath was great. We discussed things with Nikki that we felt would make the place even nicer and she made it clear that the owner would be very happy for her to follow up on these.
We stayed in Lacey for 4 nights in Fishermans Cottage. The cottage was everything and more than we were hoping. It was spotlessly clean and really well equipped. The owner met us as the ferry port with the key as we landed at 10pm.
The little Italian restaurant just at the bottom of the road was an added bonus. 2 beautiful meals in there and great service.
Had a lovely stay and would recommend Fishermans cottage
We found the cottage, although small, very well laid out and comfortable having been recently modernised. Nikki was very helpful and friendly. Laxey is a charming village with an excellent restaurant (Mona Lisa) and pub nearby. All in all a very attractive and enjoyable place to stay.
Had a perfect weekend in Laxey (helped by the weather!).
The cottage was just as described and perfect for our family. The wood burning stove was well used!
Wondering if the back hallway could be used as a boot room or similar as we weren't quite sure where to hang our coats /reomve our muddy / sandy wellies?
