Description

Harbour Hideaway is a beautifully converted holiday home, located on Malew Street in Castletown. As its name suggests, it is close to the harbour and the town centre, the house sleeps 6 people in 3 comfortable bedrooms and also comes with its own parking space, a rarity in Castletown!

The property features a spacious open plan living and dining area with plenty of seating for a family group of 6. Upstairs the first floor offers a good sized double room, twin room and family bathroom. On the second floor you will find the master bedroom with an ensuite. The parking space for the property is at the rear of the property where there is also a private garden with a small multipurpose sun room, perfect for children to play in or for storing outdoor sports gear.

Harbour Hideaway is situated in the heart of historical Castletown, with the magnificent medieval Castle Rushen once home to the Kings and Lords of Mann as well as the three other Manx National Heritage sites The Old House of keys, The Nautical Museum and The Old Grammar School all within 5 minute walk from the cottage to the town centre. Along with the culture is convenience, as all local amenities are easily accessible within the town centre which offers a wide variety of shops, restaurants, cafes and pubs (including the famous Glue Pot Inn) as well as an indoor swimming pool, tennis courts and bowling green, and Golf links.

This property provides an excellent base to explore the beautiful Isle of Man. Just outside Castletown are the lovely beaches of Derbyhaven, Scarlett and Langness. The surrounding countryside is ideal for walkers and bird watchers with many picturesque footpaths, glens and plantations.

For motorcyclists and racing fans the cottage is only a 5 minute walk from the Billown road race circuit which hosts the famous Southern 100 road race held the 2nd week of July, and also the pre and post TT /Classic road races at the end of May each year and also pre/post Manx Grand Prix in August .

Harbour Hideaway is very easily accessed from Ronaldsway Airport approx 5 minute drive and Douglas Ferry Terminal approx 20 minute drive. Taxis are available outside the airport terminal and Douglas sea terminal.

With access to public transport only a 5 minute walk away the cottage is ideal for those travelling without a car to explore the Island.

Super house and great location

Immaculate spacious house in excellent location. 2 minutes walk to castle, shops cafes, harbour etc. Very comfortable and well equipped. Good private reserved parking space (managed to get our long wheelbase Toyota Landcruiser in easily every night). Very well organised, smooth stress free check in and out. Highly recommended house and letting company.

Great position for exploring the beautiful South of the Island.

The cottage was very spacious and comfortable and had everything we needed. Castletown was a perfect base for accessing all our favourite places in the south of the island, and there are many more places to eat in town than previously. A really great vibe! Allocated parking spot was very welcome. Met 2 members of staff when leaving the property and they were really friendly and helpful too. We will definitely be booking cottages through Island Escapes again, and would happily use Harbour Hideaway whenever we need an extra room.

Well appointed property

The property, facilities and equipment were very good. The house folder did not explain the parking disc system. The discs that were there had been placed in the leaflet stand, we did not find them tell near end of stay. The biggest disapointment was we had 2 cars and only one parking space with the property. Still enjoyed our stay.

Lovely holiday

The cottage was centrally located which was ideal for us. It was clean and well equipped and we had a lovely stay. A couple of small points… the mattress in the king size bed on the first floor is very lumpy and would benefit from a topper. The information folder was quite sparse and we needed help twice to get the tv to work! A bit more info in the book would have saved your staff some time. Similarly, it wasn’t obvious where to find the wheelie bin. These points didn’t spoil our stay and Island Escapes we’re extremely helpful.

Great Location

Harbour Hideaway is in a great location for access to the Island. It is near to the bus stop and train station so ideal if you do not arrive by car, but does have it's own parking space at the rear. However, be aware the back entrance to the property has several steps which could be an issue for someone with mobility issues. The house was very comfortable with great showers and equipped with all you need and the welcome pack was greatly appreciated.

Wonderful holiday

We had the pleasure of staying in Harbour Hideaway for a week. The house is very well appointed and has everything you could need. The tea and coffee bags, biscuits, butter & milk were a really nice touch. It’s really well placed for bus stops and shops.”, we’d also highly recommend trying to have dinner in Tuscany which is literally across the road and a fabulous restaurant. If we come back to the Isle of Man we wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again.

Mini break

Fabulous property, close to the airport. Plenty of space for 4. The cottage was kitted out with everything you need including ironing board/iron and hairdryers. We appreciated the welcome pack with milk, cheese, tea, coffee and biscuits. The accommodation was well furnished, very clean and comfortable.

Excellent property has always

We have stayed with island escapes before so we knew what to expect but this was a excellent property right in the centre of Castletown parking is a bit of a nightmare but it didn’t spoil our holiday , we traveled all over the island and visited some lovely places we will be back again later on in the year hopefully. The property was in excellent condition and there is nothing that is not in there eg: cooking , games to play , even deck chairs to sit outside in , there is even a sun house on the back that holds a washing machine, the bathroom showers are to die for they are excellent also towels are white and fluffy, the start of basket for us went down a treat there was bread ,milk, cheese and biscuits . The property was lovely and clean and warm when we arrived which was late at night we would definitely go with island escapes again

Castletown stay Harbour Hideaway

Great place to stay, perfect location and Castletown is such a great location. We had a small issue when we arrived but it was sorted really quickly and the gift for our inconvenience was unexpected but showed their commitment to good customer service. Will definitely return.

Lovely cottage, great location

Great Central location to explore Castletown, close to shops and restaurants. Also great to have an allocated parking space. House is spacious and has good facilities; we stayed as a group of 6 (4 adults and 2 children) and the layout/bedroom arrangement worked perfectly for us. On the whole the house was very tidy and clean however there was areas of significant dust under the beds.

Great property, super location.

Harbour Hideaway in a superb property in a great location. Close to the town centre with a variety of shops and restaurants but still peaceful and relaxing. Easy access to other areas of the island. Facilities and all bedrooms were of a high standard with a super kitchen containing everything you need. Service team are on call if needed and follow up any queries promptly. Great communication prior to visit and a detailed folder of information available once in the property to help with use of facilities. Will be visiting the island again and will book with Island Escapes again. Thank you.

A home away from home

Lovely house in a great location The rear garden is a sun trap, and we ate alfresco every day Superb location right in the middle of the old town. Friendly area Book restaurants in advance as we couldn’t get in the Tuscany or the Kizuna, both of which looked lovely. Mind your head on the upper floors as I hit mine most days :)

Very well presented and comfortable house.

Excellent accommodation, in very good condition. Very comfortable beds, quality bedding. Lots of space ideal for a family. New liquid soaps and sanitisers provided. The only minus was a broken vacuum and no dustpan and brush.
