Holiday cottages in the Isle of Man

about us

Our Team

Our locally based team are lucky enough to live and work on the beautiful Isle of Man. Island Escapes is owned and operated by John Keggin, and supported by a reliable team of housekeepers and suppliers.

John has grown up in a tourism family with his parents and grandparents welcoming guests to Port Erin in the south of the island for many years.

John is experienced in marketing having worked in financial services on the island for a number of years together with 4 years spent as Operations Manager for a well known adventure tourism business. 

Latterly John has worked for a national holiday cottage letting agency in St Ives, Cornwall where he has gained much understanding of the industry in a well developed and successful market. It is this experience, which led him to return to the island to establish Island Escapes.

In his spare time you'll find John enjoying the great Manx outdoors, sea kayaking, mountain biking or on duty as a local Coastguard!
