A perfect base for relaxing with lovely rural views and exploring the Glens and beaches of the Island`s SW coast. The Gym and Hot Tub were a bonus for the young and active!
Everything about Close Taggart is exemplary. The greeting, the welcome pack, the gardens and of course the hosts. Cannot fault it in any way.
Brilliant space for a family. House was very well equipped and in a perfect location. Weather was also perfect for us.
I was in quarantine for 2 weeks and it was made a lot easier by having a fantastic neighbour. She came out to talk to me and offered to do shopping for me. The bungalow was really lovely and spacious. The bed was really comfortable. There were essentials and treats there when I arrived. I was given really easy directions to follow and found the property easily. I would describe it as fantastic. It was just a shame that I wasnt allowed out to enjoy being in port Erin. The avenue and the people living there were so friendly. It's in a lovely location
A beautiful staycation in wonderful surroundings, a very well equipped cottage with everything you could need. Set in stunning gardens with loads of amazing places to sit and relax and enjoy the views and tranquillity. The owners Shirley and John couldn't be more helpful. We enjoyed walks around the curraghs and neighbouring areas with lots of sights of the wallabies and other local wildlife. Although Close Taggart is a very peaceful country location it is only a short drive to Ramsey for shops, amenities takeaways etc., we were so enjoying our stay we extended our stay from 8 days to 12 da...more
The cottage was perfect for a couple. The location was very convenient for Laxey village on foot, and for the Electric tram to Ramsey. Views over the sea are wonderful. The welcome pack was great and very welcome. I love the corner bath!
Location was perfect on the Quay in Castletown. Beautifully refurbished with a high quality finish throughout. Island Escapes are always a pleasure to deal with.
We booked The Mariners House in Laxey for a party of 6 girls staycation. The house was immaculate and was like home from home. Everything we needed was provided and comfortably catered for 6 adults. Would highly recommend staying at the house and we will be booking again soon. Thank you Island Escapes for the Birthday prosecco
This is a lovely spacious and well furnished house situated in a beautiful part of the island. We very much enjoyed our short break at Ballarhennie and would visit again.
Had such a great time in a wonderful place. We will definitely be back. The spa was incredible and great space for us all for the weekend. Thanks
Lovely house in the south. Beautiful views. Exceptionally comfy beds and bedding! Booked ourselves a staycation, best decision all year! None of the stress, the kids loved the house and the days out.
Excellent location. Beautifully kept. Owners very welcoming. Fully equipped. Wonderful stay, enjoyed by all of our party
My husband and I stayed at Quay Cottage in order to have a short holiday on the island. We would love to return! We were very comfortable and the quiet peacefulness was most welcome.
We had a lovely stay at the Rowens, the house is immaculate, garden is huge and is in a great location to walk to the beach.
My wife and I had a three night stay at Yn Thie Thooit recently. The cottage is absolutely lovely and had everything that you could want for a short stay. It was spotlessly clean and the Welcome Pack that was left for us was an added bonus. The location is great, the cottage is close to the beach and we had fabulous dark skies to 'star-gaze'. Highly recommended, we've already booked again for next year!
absolutely, wonderful in everything. Each one is super comfortable, the location is wonderful, the view is fantastic. From the moment you arrive at the place, you already feel a sense of freedom in a paradise. Inside the house we found everything we needed. And outside, in addition to the stunning view, we were able to take long walks, and feel at peace and security. We will definitely return
A beautiful location with a big balcony window giving a 180 degree view over the harbour and across to Langness. Perfect for watching the sunrise, or the swans or seabirds at any time. Costa is a 20 second stroll and a variety of pubs and restaurants not much further. Despite that it is extremely quiet as the street the house is located on just runs down to a small pier. Lots of lovely walking opportunities from the front door. Top quality fittings, with the exception of the tv, which offered Apple TV (subscription required), or a very contrary bbc iplayer. There is a small nursery, with...more
This was a lovely place to stay, great views, very modern and very warm and comfortable, very quiet and relaxed and very friendly, Great area for good walks with the dog, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely go back again, Thank you for a lovely break. Perfect!
Lovely apartment very comfortable . Spacious and bright. Great kitchen facilities only negative no mixing bowls or serving dishes. Bathrooms very modern. Great bed and bedding. Would definitely stay again. Lovely views.
Thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend at Palm Villa. The grandchildren loved being so near to the beach and promenade. We had a few trips to Castletown on the steam train and also used the excellent bus service. Great house for a family!
A lovely relaxing weeks stay. Nice clean comfortable cottage. Friendly owner. Would recommend to the family and friends. An upgrade on the tv package would be good.
We have just had the loveliest stay here for 4 nights It is a fab location & the place itself was just perfect We brought our little pup with us & were able to take her for some great walks Would highly recommend & will hopefully be staying again
The age of our family group ranged from an infant to a grandad of 70 and everyone of us really enjoyed our staycation. The facilities were excellent and the position of the property was ideal for easy access to the railway station, town centre and beach. We would stay at the property again and would certainly recommend it to others.
Had an amazing staycation and just what I needed to relax and unwind. The apartment is beautifully appointed and the views are just stunning. An absolutely stunning setting, beautiful views, sunsets and so very peaceful. Even had some clear night sky’s to star gaze. I will definitely be back - it really felt like a proper holiday! Thank you so much xx
External appearance was not very welcoming. In need of a paint and garden needs to be attended to. The interior was very nice and the views from upstairs were stunning. Very nice few days down south!!
Enjoyed our stay, unfortunately could not appreciate the area. What a good place to isolate, especially for Willow.
This apartment was well located, well appointed and very comfortable, all couple with a generous welcome pack of great coffee (including decaffeinated), tea, milk, bread, butter and Manx cheeses.
Good quiet location, everything you need for a relaxing break. Only thing I woukd say from a safety point for children is the glass table in the lounge, perhaps consider changing it for a smaller one.
Can there be any better place to stay when the waves are crashing on the beach and the wind is howling? We lit the log burner and enjoyed looking out at weather unfolding in front of us. The cottage is well equipped with hundreds of Dvds, books, games and magazines. Paaie and Orry loved staying right on the beach and sharing an Ice Cream. They declared it was the “best place ever“.
Great time at cottage. You may want to look at the roof as the ceiling paint in bedroom is peeling. If you ever update the kitchen, you may want to look at a sink drainer as the water seem to go everywhere with the round sinks and worried that it may wet units. Move the washing machine if you can and put crockery in this space as more room to access it? The Kettle seemed to pour very badly and splash, so had to be used over sink. apart from that really enjoyed stay
The cottage was so lovely, the cozy fire and bath were amazing, perfect for a winter night in. The garden was also amazing for our dog, she loved it. Will definitely be back!
Overall a comfortable stay. The two single beds are very soft mattresses but the main double is very comfortable.
We had difficulties following the written instructions to find the key to enter the apartment. Suggest pointing out that access is from the rear of the property, and also defining that the key box is at eye level to the right of the door. Great views across the bay looking towards Ireland were completely spoiled by very dirty windows. Even those easily accessible to the rear of the property hadn't even been cleaned. Otherwise the property was find and comfortable, well appointed and great coffee was provided !!!
