Glorious place

A lovely holiday in a perfect location. The cottage is excellent but not for people with mobility issues. We were very comfortable. The second bedroom is rather snug and has no natural light or ventilation. The ‘window’ into the corridor would help if it opened. We had problems with all the light switches in the bathroom but Island Escapes service was excellent and repaired rapidly. We will definitely return. Thank you

Bedroom capacity lacking

Lovely cottage and all that was described except on two points. The second bedroom was not a double bed but a three quarter bed not nearly adequate for a six foot three and five foot eight couple. No chest of drawers or anywhere to hang clothes or window to external light so hot , airless when door shut. Garden not a garden but tiny patio space although it was nice to have outdoor amenity. Sad bedroom was poor for our guests as they did not sleep well but everything else fabulous, We would stay again but only as one couple .

Beautiful holiday at Port Erin

The cottage is beautifully situated overlooking the beach where we enjoyed early morning walks & evening drinks watching the sunsets.Dogs are allowed on the beach before 10am and after 7pm in the summer months.The bus & steam railway station is just 5 minutes walk away & there are shops & bars on your doorstep including the ice cream parlour next door. There was everything you needed in the cottage including a washing machine, we didn’t use the conservatory as the weather was too hot. You can park outside the cottage on the promenade but 16 hour restrictions are in place & we had to park in the bus station car park if we went off for the day as due to the weather being hot Port Erin was very popular but there were plenty of spaces available when the day trippers left. Would definitely recommend Surfside & it would be our first choice if we returned.

Surfside July 2022

Location is excellent. Surfside is clearly a loved and personalised cottage. Major Improvements to flow of space and removal of lots of ornaments would ensure a more relaxing stay. Attention to wires, extension cables, lightbulbs and low hanging ceiling lights are needed. Kitchen is not four star at all

Excellent

We had a lovely stay in a really clean beautifully placed cottage. Everything we needed was to hand and was cosy and comfortable. We would definitely use island retreats again and would recommend the cottage and the service provided.

Almost perfect

This is our fifth year staying at Surfside, we love being there. The only downside is the settee, which has no back support at all and for me spoils an otherwise perfect break. We have always got on well with the owners and have politely asked if it could be upgraded and been assured it is going to be replaced. We have already booked two further stays, proof of our love of the place, but something decent to relax on would be greatly appreciated.

6 night dog-friendly stay

The best thing about this cottage is the location (right on the beach). It also has good parking. We saw several pictures of the cottage before visiting and we thought it looked lovely but felt a bit disappointed on arrival. There are two lamps in the living room which are quite low and one is situated by the dining table and me, partner and friends/family who popped in all walked into it. It is quite heavy and so you feel it. I would suggest the light is changed as it seemed a bit dangerous. The cottage was dog friendly which was why we booked it, along with its location. There was a welcome pack left for our arrival which included bread, cheese, milk etc which is a great touch. The key code holder is handy on arrival and departure. I personally wouldn't stay in this cottage again but I would use the company again. I'm not entirely sure it was good value for money.

Incredible location and views, cosy and full of character

We (2 adults and a small dog) were lucky enough to have an extended stay of 6 weeks in Surfside and highly recommend it. The cottage is full of character, beautifully themed and had everything we needed including incredible views of Port Erin bay and Bradda Head. It's just a few metres from the beach and we were there mid winter with some spectacular storms - great to watch from the living room with the log burning stove making things very cosy. Fantastic for dog walking, with a very welcoming community of regular dog walkers on the beach and many paths nearby. Also (at least in winter) lots of parking nearby with two easy to use EV charging points, though very little need to go out in the car as there's plenty to do and a good selection of shops + post office/bank/pharmacy nearby.

Xmas (again) at Surfside

Our 2nd Xmas at Surfside was just as magical as the first. Location is perfect for the beach and the boys were out paddle boarding on Boxing Day! Comfortable and clean cottage in a perfect spot. We may make it a 3rd Xmas.

Very comfortable and relaxing stay

My husband and I have just had a 4 day staycation at Surfside. The house was very well equipped with everything ( and more) that anyone would need. There was also lots of interesting books, DVDs and games - useful for rainy days. Great location for the beach and amenities. Would recommend this accommodation!

Lovely beachside cottage

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 location!

Surfside is in an amazing location right on the beach. It could not be better if you have young families who love long beach days. The owners were lovely and greeted us with biscuits, coffees, crisps etc. Which was a nice touch. The house has everything you could possibly need! Beach chairs, games, books and so much more. Some things could do with being updated like the kettle (full of limescale). I also didnt like the waterproof matress topper (i am only aware of this now) as it made sleeping very hot and uncomfortable. Other than that, it was perfect. Thank you

Lovely stay in this charming cottage.

We walk around the coast to Port St Mary and had delicious cakes at the Sugarloaf Cafe. Evening meal at the Shore hotel. Shona boat trip around the calf of Man followed by kayaking, we were going to paddle board but there were lots of jelly fish. Lovely evening meal at the Foraging Vintners ( book early) followed by dancing to a band on the beach. On Sunday we walked up Bradda head to the Milner Tower and had more yummy food at the Bradda Glen. All in all a busy but relaxing Stay. The cottage is absolutely lovely, open fire, DVD’s, games and CD’s for a rainy day. The shower is also decent, our only slight quibble is that the numbers have worn off the cooker which makes it difficult to use.
