Let your property with us

Let your property with us.

At Island Escapes, we understand that every homeowner has unique needs and preferences. That's why we pride ourselves on offering a flexible service tailored to meet individual requirements. Whether you require minimal assistance or comprehensive support, our dedicated team is here to help every step of the way. From managing bookings to handling maintenance, we adapt our services to suit your specific needs, ensuring peace of mind and exceptional care for your property.

Our expertise allows us to ensure that your property is marketed in all the right places.

Marketing & Bookings.

We operate a modern online bookings system, designed by the holiday let industry for the holiday let industry.

This allows us to take care of:

  • All administration, guest and owner communications
  • Handle all payments, including security deposits where applicable.
  • We can track and monitor advertising campaigns
  • Automated accounts and billing
  • Manage brochure requests and bookings
  • All communications are tracked

We use market leading software that integrates with the main online booking platforms. This means in addition to our own website, our properties are automatically listed on the likes of Airbnb, VRBO, Tripadvisor and Holidu with booking calendars fully synchronised.

For all our properties we will devise a marketing strategy to allow us to maximise opportunities with the property. We are not simply just a place to advertise, but a company that is continuously looking to drive business for our owners through many different channels.

Managed Services.

In addition to the marketing & booking service many of our owners opt for our fully managed service which provides a total hands-off approach to letting your holiday home.

During guest stays we’ll co-ordinate the various weekly changeover tasks. Cleanliness is something we take incredibly seriously, and we are proud to hold the Safe, Clean & Legal™ COVID-19 accreditation from Quality in Tourism for our approach to managed properties. 

Guest services –We ensure any problems are dealt with quickly and efficiently during guest stays through the provision of an out of hours on call service.

Coordinating maintenance – where maintenance is required during a guests stay we’ll work to complete this on your behalf. More information our Property Maintenance Services.

Taking all tasks relating to the property away from you so you enjoy the return from your property without any of the hassle.

Island Escapes is committed to our owners that their homes are protected during bookings. That is why we've partnered with Know Your Guest.
Know Your Guest is the leading vacation rental guest screening provider. We use them to independently verify our guests as well as collect a damage deposit or allow them to buy a damage waiver. 

Enjoy the returns from your property hassle-free with our fully managed service, ensuring peace of mind and exceptional guest experiences while we handle all aspects of property management.

Managed Plus Service.

Our Managed Plus service is an additional feature where we offer the full service described in our managed service above, but with the additional benefit of being on call to assist with the property year round regardless if guests are staying. We can check for any damage, leaks or issues that may arise outside of times when the property is let out together with co-ordinating maintenance. This is ideal for those owners who may live off the Isle of Man.

Local Presence.

Our local presence means we are know the island, the industry and our properties inside and out! Our main office is based in Castletown, with a secondary hub in Onchan ran by Isle of Man Travel Services who handle much of our back office administration. Each office is open  for visitors to pop in for any assistance or Tourist information whilst on holiday.

Cronk Urleigh Lodge
Alison and Richard

Owners of Cronk Urleigh Lodge

We are absolutely delighted with how successful renting our property through Island Escapes has been. John and his team have been so professional and supportive it has made what we thought would be a difficult job, into a seamless and easily managed one.

We are extremely impressed with the service provided and highly recommend them.

The White House

Owner of The White House

At the end of 2018 I took the hard decision to offer a precious family home as a rental property. Right from day 1 Island Escapes were very helpful and supportive in preparing the house for visitors and getting it through the official registration and inspection processes.

Through 2020, a very unusual year for the holiday business, Island Escapes have been instrumental in making The White House a success in very difficult circumstances.

They advertise, manage bookings, co-ordinate the cleaning and the property generally. They keep the guests more than happy and I have peace of mind that my property is in good order and safe hands.

Without Island Escapes none of this would be possible given that I am based in the United Kingdom and have been stuck there throughout 2020.

We registered with Island Escapes last year and have to say I wish we'd done it sooner, they handle promotions, bookings and take all the hard work off your hands, we've been busier than ever, John and his team are always there for help, advice and suggestions on how to improve bookings. I have recommended Island Escapes to other people with self catering properties and will continue to do so.

We are new to the holiday rental business with our first year being 2019. John and his team have walked us through every step of the way and continue to fully manage our property with care and expertise. Nothing is too much trouble for Island Escapes and we would have no hesitation in recommending them.

Balladuke Farmhouse

Owner of Balladuke Farmhouse

One of the best decisions I have ever made regarding Balladuke Farmhouse was to put the advertising and management services into the hands of Island Escapes. They have taken all the hassle out of promoting, marketing, cleaning and securing all the bookings. I have no hesitation in recommending John and his team at Island Escapes.
