what3words gets you there

Island Escapes is pleased to have adopted what3words location technology to help our guests find their property quickly and easily.

When trying to find your property, we appreciate it can be easy to get lost - street addresses can be inconsistent and confusing and it might not always be easy to find the front door! That’s why we’re now using what3words to make our properties easy to find.

what3words is a simple way to talk about precise locations. It has divided the world into 3m squares and given each a unique 3 word address - so you can refer to any location with just 3 words. This makes the precise entrance to a cafe or the best viewpoint for an amazing waterfall, incredibly easy to find. For example, the 3 word address for the exact entrance to the front door of the Island Escapes office in Port Erin can be found at ///plenty.latches.buff

How to use what3words

When you book with us in the travel instructions you’ll see 3 word addresses displayed in the form ///word.word.word. To find this place easily, you can either click on the link or download the free what3words app and enter the 3 words into the search bar. To navigate press the directions arrow in the app and using your preferred app (e.g. Google Maps, Waze, Citymapper) to travel to that precise point. 

The what3words app works offline so you can still enter 3 words and find the exact location even without a connection.
