This was our first visit to the Isle of Man, made possible by the airbridge between Guernsey and the Isle of Man. Island Escapes provided a lot of choice of places to stay on their website and we certainly enjoyed staying at the Packet House, its location was great, it was very well equipped and was a comfortable house. Island Escapes provided excellent directions and details of entry to the house etc. Everything was more than satisfactory and in fact we are returning to Castletown next month and staying in the adjoining property.
Not being able to get away this summer we decided to have a holiday on island instead and chose the Swallows because it offered something extra with its spa and gym facilities. It has been the most relaxing week with incredible views and a beautifully kept property which is eqipped with everything you could possibly need for a self catering break. As well as this, the owners of the property were very helpful and friendly and left us food essentials for our arrival which was a lovely touch. The location is near to Peel and therefore extremely convenient. A wonderful place to stay that we thorou...more
We had a lovely 1 weeks stay with our 2 small children. The house and ground are really beautiful and the kids loved the garden. There is a little path from the house down to the beach which is beautiful and very peaceful. There also a heritage walk just down the round which is a lovely little stroll. We loved cooking in the kitchen and dining outside on the patio. The house is really lovely and spacious all rooms with en suites. Would definitely recommend
Fantastic accommodation with jacuzzi, sauna and steam room as a bonus extra! Great setting and close to all the west of the Island has to offer, Glen Maye, Niarbyl, White Beach, Peel etc.
We were made to feel very welcome on arrival. It was lovely to meet the owner who is really helpful. The Island Escapes welcome goodies of Manx produce were really appreciated. The facilities are spot-on. We had everything we needed. Great for a family and good location close to lots of activities in the South of the island. Would definitely recommend.
The Old Brickworks is such a lovely cottage in extensive grounds including a lake with resident ducks. Margo was so friendly and the welcome pack and flowers were a lovely touch. We really enjoyed our stay in the North of the Island in this comfortable well equipped cottage and would love to stay again, a real home from home. Thank you so much Margo xx
We had a fantastic stay at the Milking Parlour. Friendly host and neighbours. Amazing views. Beautiful, comfortable accommodation equipped with everything we could possibly need. Plenty of things to do in the area. It’s a perfect place for a visit to Port Erin and we will most certainly return.
The house was perfect! It had everything we could possibly need, it was spotless, and is in the perfect location. We had an amazing weekend and would definitely stay again. We will 100% be booking another staycation with Island Escapes!
Thie Fuinnee is one of the best-equipped holiday homes I have stayed in. The beds are extremely comfortable and the bathrooms have high standard fittings. The living room is extremely large and light, and would be wonderful place for a family get together. I can also thoroughly recommend Island Escapes - their customer service was truly excellent.
I was in quarantine for 2 weeks and it was made a lot easier by having a fantastic neighbour. She came out to talk to me and offered to do shopping for me. The bungalow was really lovely and spacious. The bed was really comfortable. There were essentials and treats there when I arrived. I was given really easy directions to follow and found the property easily. I would describe it as fantastic. It was just a shame that I wasnt allowed out to enjoy being in port Erin. The avenue and the people living there were so friendly. It's in a lovely location
We had a fabulous time with our grandchildren and their parents. The house has had a fantastic makeover, since we first started visiting, 25 years ago. The house is fully equipped, warm and comfortable. We only had one suggestion and that is the towels need upsizing from bath towel to bath sheet. We would definitely return again, even though we only live 12 miles away.
We had a lovely stay at the Rowens, the house is immaculate, garden is huge and is in a great location to walk to the beach.
I’m really glad we chose Palm Villa for our staycation this year. The location was perfect and the house was very clean and well decorated. They even left a food welcome package for us. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone who wants a few days in Port Erin.
An ideal location to explore a part of the IOM I did not know well, the accommodation was excellent.
Gorgeous cottage, very well equipped with all you need and lovely soft furnishings and decoration. Spotlessly clean and a few little extras in a welcome pack made it even more special. We were on a staycation from Ramsey and it was so relaxing just like a proper holiday. We will definitely return to Quay Cottage even when the borders open. What a gem!
This was our second stay, and our honeymoon staycation, beautiful place to stay, wouldn’t have wanted to be anywhere else. Thank you to all the team, everything is perfect. We will be back again and again. X
Lovely property...well designed and stylish. 4 generous bedrooms, two en suite with comfortable beds. Plenty of equipment for us to use (cutlery, crockery, appliances etc. although we ran out of toilet rolls and bin bags!) Well thought out arrangements for keys and a nice welcome package of bread, coffee, milk, butter, biscuits and cheese. Overall, a home away from home.
Brilliant staycation and would stay again. In the summer maybe some fans or type of cooling for night.
We know Port Erin well, so no suprises, but enjoyed our short break.. Weather was disappointing, twice we found ourselves saying — we would have to come back in summer ! But it was mid July. Everything we needed at property the only downside for us was the step down into the kitchen, which my wife forgot about in middle of the night and went flying. In her seventies so not a great thing to happen, We solved by shutting kitchen door when we went to bed. Welcome pack appreciated, thank you Island Escapes, who changed original dates due to COVID with no problems... Great customer service
Nice place. Looks a bit like a careworn seventies block from the outside but inside has been nicely modernised. Location wise, is right next to the first tee at Rowany golf club so ideal for any golfers. The apartment itself is spacious with a well appointed kitchen and an appealing open plan seating area. The bedrooms are nice and bright, but maybe could do with better quality furniture to be more in keeping with the rest of the property. Parking is available onsite, although a little in need of some TLC, but we parked across the road in the public parking adjoining the golf course, which we...more
The farmhouse was clean and comfortable with a quirky layout! The welcome gift on arrival was much appreciated. All amenities and attractions in the North within easy reach by car. The barn with pool table and table tennis was enjoyed by our teenagers, and there were plenty of toys for younger children also.
Excellent location by the beach. Close to all amenities. Water sports on the doorstep. Great base for a small family.
Ideal base for exploring the south of the island Comfortable accommodation and the facilities of Castletown are ideal.
We had a very enjoyable staycation. The apartment was nice and clean and the customer service was excellent.
We had difficulties following the written instructions to find the key to enter the apartment. Suggest pointing out that access is from the rear of the property, and also defining that the key box is at eye level to the right of the door. Great views across the bay looking towards Ireland were completely spoiled by very dirty windows. Even those easily accessible to the rear of the property hadn't even been cleaned. Otherwise the property was find and comfortable, well appointed and great coffee was provided !!!
