“Home from home comfort”
Reviewed 27 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We stayed here to watch the Classic TT over August bank holiday and chose Red Gap Cottage for it's location and the high ratings from previous guests. We were not disappointed. The cottage was well thought out, clean and comfortable with cosy living room, complete with great games and DVDs to while away the evenings. I loved the home-from-home feel to the place as every kitchen implement and accessory that I could think of was provided, which enabled a very comfortable stay.

The cottage offered great value for money and Kim was very helpful with every aspect of our stay.

We shall definitely be back! Thank you!

“A very good cottage to stay in with good facilities and great location”
Reviewed 15 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We had a very enjoyable stay in this well set out, clean, cosy cottage. Great location and parking. We received a warm welcome from the owner and everything in the cottage was in good condition. It was easy to walk into Castletown and visit nearby shops and restaurants. The kitchen is extremely well equipped with a large utility room for extra storage and washing facilities. A spacious bathroom with a power shower. Hope to stay there again, as it is a home from home. Excellent wi-fi .

“The Best Holiday Rental We Have Ever Stayed In”
Reviewed 9 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

A lovely, comfortable cottage, sympathetically restored and providing everything you could possibly need and more. Red Gap cottage feels more like a family home than a holiday rental and the warm welcome from the owner confirms this.This was our second stay and we are definitely booking again.

“A very clean and well equipped cottage.”
Reviewed 19 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Welcomed by the owner who also rang later in the week to make sure everything was OK, this cottage was very clean and well equipped. There was everything we needed for a lovely weeks holiday as well as a welcome pack of milk, bread, tea etc., and even fresh flowers in the living room and bathroom - perfect!

“The best kept secret in Castle-town, Isle of Man”
Reviewed 15 July 2014 for a stay in May 2014

There is nothing that needs to be altered about this cottage, it was lovely and warm well organised and was a pleasure to be able to stay there. You can tell that it's a wonderful place with great people that run this cottage when they greet you at the door, organise the taxi at the airport to collect you and deliver you at the end of your stay.

“Beautiful, well appointed cottage within a 5 mins walk of Castletown centre.”
Reviewed 6 July 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.
