West View is a charming annex to a large traditional Mansion house set in it's own grounds just a few minutes walk from the Isle of Man TT Grandstand in Douglas.

Excellent location

This cottage is situated with several others in a large garden quite close to Douglas town centre. The Sea Termonal is about a 25-30 minutes walk away. There are also quite frequent buses. Despite being fairly central, the cottage is very quiet. It is very spacious with a large double bedroom with an armchair and a view over the garden for stay at home days. The only downside for us was the staircase which has a sharp turn half way up.



An oasis of calm close to the relative bustle of Douglas

This is a beautifully presented period property, with high ceilings and many period features, a separate wing of a Victorian mansion. It had only recently been decorated throughout. The peaceful view from the very large double bedroom is across a lawn bounded by trees, yet the property is only a few minutes by car from the seafront or around a 25 minutes walk, though it's quite a steep climb coming back. The single bedroom (which we didn't use) is quite small but does benefit from a separate private dressing area. The sitting room was comfortable and relaxing, the kitchen/diner adequately equipped for the size of the property.
The property is on a couple of bus routes and we made some use of public transport as an alternative to driving. We found the Go Explore travel cards were good value for money, especially if you plan to use the island's heritage transport system.
Whilst let through an agency, we happened to meet the owner, who was charming and helpful. All in all, we had a very enjoyable stay at West View and it will definitely be our first choice of accommodation the next time we holiday on the wonderful Isle of Mann.




Convenient location

West View was an absolutely idea spot for our stay on the Isle of Man. The property is lovely and set in superb, secluded gardens whilst being just a few minutes walk from many activities. An excellent base for exploring the island. The owner was extremely helpful.
We did have some difficulty finding it in the dark when we first arrived (we don't have sat-nav or such like). Some idea of distance from the traffic lights would have helped and also some mention of the gates may have aided our search especially when three people we asked had no idea where it was!
Altogether though we loved it and would certainly highly recommend it




Two weeks self-isolation stay at West View.

My son and I stayed at West View following a hospital appointment in the UK and had to self-isolate on return to IOM. It was a beautiful, peaceful place to stay. It was comfortable and well equipped.
We arrived in the evening and it took me a while to locate the instruction folder, which contained the wifi password. The wifi did cut out a couple of times, but was mostly reliable. I found instructions for the washer-drier, but none for the oven , the dishwasher, or the heating. I did find that it was cold in the middle of the day and would have liked to boost the heating at times.
Overall we enjoyed our stay at West View and for us it worked well for our self-isolation period.
