“Cracking cottage, super view, good location”
Reviewed 24 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

A short drive from the port at Douglas got us from a busy main town to a lovely tranquil spot with fantastic transport links and the sort of quieter location we adore.
Met on arrival with a very friendly and informative handover from the owner, good information booklet and loads of information to hand. The cottage is a superb mix of old and new with good levels of equipment. WiFi excellent and everything worked, we never needed the owners contact details that were easily to hand if needed.
Garden and view very good, the Manx Scone and Biscuits left by owner were a lovely touch and went down very well.
Short walk to Laxey and Co-op, transport and the famous wheel, if using the Electric Railway Minorca station is actually closer than Laxey but down or up a steeper hill dependent on direction of travel (downhill when leaving cottage) There is also a nice Italian La Mona Lisa at the bottom of the hill close to the harbour
Would recommend to all our friends and family who like us would not be disappointed.
Thank you

“Fantastic Cottage”
Reviewed 11 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This is a fantastic cottage providing a very warm welcome to the Isle of Man. Wonderful home made scone and bread left by the owner also milk so it was good to sit down to afternoon tea on arrival. Lovely views and it was great to sit in bed and see the sea crashing on the beach.

“Little Gem”
Reviewed 3 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This cottage is a little gem, everything you could need is catered for and it is maintained to a high standard. My son asked if we could buy it and live there! It's a great base for travelling round the island, both with your own transport or using the frequent and convenient buses, trams and trains. Would love to stay for longer next time we visit.

“Beautiful cottage with sea views”
Reviewed 30 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed at this beautiful cottage for a week in July. The owner was friendly and very welcoming on our arrival. Lovely welcome pack in the kitchen. The cottage was spotless and had everything you need. A real home from home. The cottage has lots of lovely touches in every room. It is located in an ideal position for getting around the island.
Highly recommend staying there, we had a fantastic week. Thank you for making us so welcome in your lovely cottage.

“Sunny side Terrace in Laxey”
Reviewed 17 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015
1
person found this review helpful

The cottage is homely and very comfortable. Heated throughout and wifi. Every little creature comfort is catered for to a high standard. No expense has been spared achieving this. Laxey is a great location to see the rest of the Isle. A trip up to Snaefell is a must for the views and the Laxey wheel. Visit the Tourist info place for great advise on what to visit and best deals - especially if National Trust member then some places are free. We have had a great time and will defiantly return to same place. Many thanks to the owner for making us so welcome. A very relaxed week for us all.
