Guestbook comments from the owner

The service we received was brilliant. The apartment was first class, everything you could ever wish for. The apartment is within minutes drive from the ferry terminal, we found this great - no long drive looking for it! We got the biggest wow factor going through the door and what we liked the least was leaving it behind!

We found the apartment to be like new, very clean, well equipped, and well sited for access to Douglas and to main roads for island touring. The owners were helpful, giving ideas on places to visit and where to eat. Any questions we had about appliance operation were answered quickly and concisely.

I/we wouldn't hesitate to recommend aalin Thie to friends and will most certainly reserve it again (in approximately five years) for another stay.

Very well appointed apartment with just about everything you could need supplied and some additional luxuries like the espresso machine. Lovely views from the living room window and plenty of easy parking. Location on the edge of Douglas was great for getting out and about and we walked down into town for the museum and steam train. Very close to the TT circuit if you wanted to be close to the action. Just a 10 minute drive to the ferry too.

Peaceful, spacious and comfortable apartment

  • 5 of 5

Located at the top of Beechwood Rise on the outskirts of Douglas, the apartment was beautifully presented. It was clean, spacious and well-maintained with all mod cons. We appreciated the quality of the accommodation, including the shower cubicle with its digital control panel. It was a bit like being in Dr Who's Tardis!

The location was perfect for getting out and exploring the island. We went everywhere from Point of Ayre to The Calf of Man. We recommend The Manx Museum in Douglas as a means of getting to know some of the island's rich history. There is also a smashing little art gallery there that creatively reflects The Isle of Man in various guises.

Big thanks to the owners - David & Susan for hosting us and for allowing us to stay a couple of extra nights because of the Liverpool ferry being out of action. It was a great holiday made extra special because of where we were staying - a home away from home.

Fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5

We spent a fantastic week at the apartment, when we arrived we were greets and shown around the apartment and how to use all the "mod cons"

I was gobsmacked at how new everything was and the standard and presentation was exceptional!

After our trip we even had milk in the fridge to get a cuppie.

David and sue went to great lengths to ensure our comfort, and the apartment really did have everything you would need.

I tried to take the fancy shower home but it wouldn't fit in my suitcase, with massage jets and a sauna facility not to mention a seat! You really are spoilt!

We worked out the bus routes very quickly, and a lovely 10 minute walk had you at the bus stop and local shops.

We will return, I could find no faults everything was well thought through to ensure a trouble free stay.

Thank you David & Sue
