Great location,easy access to everything in CastletownGreat 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
