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 are IOM residents and have known of Close Taggart Cottages almost since they were opened. We had admired them but being so close to home could only dream of actually staying there for a few nights. BUT Covid elsewhere in the world did restrict and cancel our other plans so taking our thoughts to stay closer to home. As in 8 miles?? A Staycation over Christmas was considered but surely Close Taggart would be closed, if not for Covid then for Christmas? We looked on line and they were open. 30 seconds later and we were booked in On line and good to go. Well we knew the local shops and had al...more
The cottage was perfect for a couple. The location was very convenient for Laxey village on foot, and for the Electric tram to Ramsey. Views over the sea are wonderful. The welcome pack was great and very welcome. I love the corner bath!
We have had a wonderful break at Number 4 Shore Road, Peel. It has everything you could possibly need, and the location is spot on.
A perfect base for relaxing with lovely rural views and exploring the Glens and beaches of the Island`s SW coast. The Gym and Hot Tub were a bonus for the young and active!
It was a delight to return to Close Taggart presently. The local walks, wetlands, wallabies, cycle rides and good eateries provide a relaxing change. John and Shirley are generous hosts with a wide knowledge of local features and insights. A gem of a stay!
Had a lovely get-together to celebrate mum and dad's Diamond Wedding Anniversary among other things. Ideal location . Very cosy. Loved the huge log fire in the living room. The hot tub was fab, once we got the hang of it (log-stove) heated.
Location was perfect on the Quay in Castletown. Beautifully refurbished with a high quality finish throughout. Island Escapes are always a pleasure to deal with.
Had such a great time in a wonderful place. We will definitely be back. The spa was incredible and great space for us all for the weekend. Thanks
What a wonderful place to stay hopefully will be back everything was so well run and friendly with no exception.
Great staycation with the family. Plenty of room for us all to enjoy ourselves plus some good extras.
Only disadvantage with this property - there is very little outside space. Inside is very well equipped with plenty of space in all rooms and excellent bathrooms.
I stayed in the property during my 2 week isolation after returning to the island. Obviously no one relishes 2 weeks on their own, but having said that, I can't think of a nicer place to spend the two weeks. The property is lovely, it has every facility you are likely to need, it is comfortable and the owner, Elaine, was very helpful - within the bounds of my isolation. Also the view is stunning, you can spend quite a lot of time just looking out from the window. Many thanks for arranging the booking for me. Ian Musgrave
This accommodation is spacious and comfortable in an ideal location for enjoying the countryside and coast. It has a modern Kitchen and large dining room, ideal for family meals. The pool table and table tennis got plenty of use in the evenings and there was a good collection of dvds and games.
Absolutely loved the Packet House or as we will always call it Perfect House...There’s not much more to say really it’s clean, high specced, comfortable and cosy, exceptional!!!
A stunning location, weather was perfect, house has been beautifully renovated and has everything you need , the welcome basket was a lovely touch . Stayed for three nights with Family and Friends the weekend Lockdown#3 was being announced so felt very fortunate that we had such a memorable stay . Unfortunately the downstairs shower wasn’t working but a plumber was sent out a few hours after reporting it . Already planning next stay and would recommend using Island Escapes to Friends .
This was our second stay with Island Escapes. Enjoyed our first stay in Port Erin so decided to try Port St Mary this time. The cottage is lovely, set next to the harbour with stunning views over the yacht park and Carrick Bay. Warm and cosy with everything we needed. Small galley kitchen on the groind floor which was well equipped. First ensuite bedroom on tjis floor too. Staircase from ground floor to the second floor is narrow as would be expected in the type of fishermans cottage. Cosy lounge with dinning table on the second floor with freesat tv. Third floor ensuit bedroom is the nicest...more
We enjoyed a 5 night staycation in February. Lovely stay in lousy weather. We are happy to highly recommend!
Had the best time at Dandy Rig Cottage, the cottage has everything you need .. super cosy .. garden is lovely with amazing views.. can not recommend enough.. will definitely be going back.
Nice decor and excellent cleanliness. We liked the entertainment options for family with little kids. We expected a better sea view. Unfortunately, the view from the living room and the first-floor bedroom is obstructed by the house in front. Living room sofas could have been more comfortable.
Clean, well equipped, very comfortable and excellent customer service. Would 100% stay again or recommend.
This is our second time in the Arches, it never fails to impress and nor does Island Escapes as there is everything in this house you would ever need. Huge bedrooms, loads of wardrobe space but the open plan layout downstairs is where this house performs. It is the perfect house to entertain, a cosy living room off of the spacious kitchen dining area with a huge TV and great internet. The little homely touches that island escapes provide is so well thought out, from the welcome hamper, cheese, milk, ice, coffee bags, fresh baked bread, down to the shampoo, hand wash, conditioner and cream from...more
We had a lovely staycation and would definitely like to come back again soon. The house is in a great location and a nice quiet area. The children had a wonderful time and loved their stay here. We were very impressed with how clean the house was, we had everything we needed and felt very at home.
A great location if you are looking for some rest and recuperation. The accommodation is situated by a farm and Andreas village is just a short drive away, it was very clean, well laid out and well equipped. We did find the heating very warm and had to turn it down. there is a great outside space which would be ideal for the warmer month. Highly recommended, definitely will return in the new year.
Had the best weekend here.views to die for .bath was totally amazing.fantastic we will definitely be going back 10/10
We have spent 2 weeks in isolation at The Milking Parlour. We’ve enjoyed our stay. The cottage is lovely and the views amazing. I have not given the condition 5 because there are a couple of light bulbs out, the bottom of the shower tray kept coming apart & there are cobwebs in the lounge. This has not affected our stay. The neighbours have been friendly, 1 of them brought us a table and chairs to sit outside on.
Lovely cosy house up on the hill. Fabulous views. Comfortable beds and duvets. Well equipped kitchen. The turret room is a lovely bonus
Fab cottage perfect for two in a very quiet street. Two up/two down with a small but lovely garden, perfect for breakfast in the sunshine. Kitchen very well equipped. Only feedback is some of the furnishings are a little dated, TV is not Smart and mattress is not comfortable for those with bad backs! Still would recommend this cottage, perfect location and we loved our stay. Lovely local extras on arrival.
Just the most perfect cottage. Absolutely everything you could want in fact we didn’t want to leave and we were there for 4 weeks. Thanks so much
A lovely place to stay - well equipped and super warm with underfloor heating. Wonderful.views of both countryside and sea. Close to amenities and the bus stop is conveniently located about 100M down the road. We stayed on a 'staycation' during the Xmas period as we couldnt go back home to Sussex to visit family and friends and it was well worth it, for a welcome change of scene. Will stay again if the borders remain as they are.
Good quiet location, everything you need for a relaxing break. Only thing I woukd say from a safety point for children is the glass table in the lounge, perhaps consider changing it for a smaller one.
Everything was excellent, lovely house in a traditional farmhouse style and grounds in beautiful surroundings.
Really enjoyed our stay here. The apartment has clearly been recently renovated and it’s very stylish and comfortable. It’s also a short walk to the Main Street of shops/restaurants as well as the prom. The apartment had been cleaned before our arrival a though perhaps a deeper clean was needed as some areas/corners were dusty
We needed a place to stay whilst self-isolating after being permitted to enter the Isle of Man on compassionate grounds. We booked this place on a Sunday for the Monday boat arrival. The directions and key arrangements were excellent and we soon got everything in and unpacked. There is a parking space at the rear of the property making this easy. Everything had been prepared for us perfectly. The apartment is very comfortable and the view from the front room is simply stunning. It's a five minute walk to the supermarket, and a similar walk down the hill into town or down to the prom. Islan...more
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 ...more
Overall a comfortable stay. The two single beds are very soft mattresses but the main double is very comfortable.
