Quay Cottage is a beautifully refurbished fishermans cottage overlooking the picturesque harbour of Port St Mary, a fishing village in the south of the Isle of Man.
The holiday cottage benefits from two cosy en-suite bedrooms, charming living space with electric stove and a small but very well appointed galley style kitchen. The property is located a stones throw from the shoreline and boasts views across the quaint working harbour and down the coast towards Castletown and the Langness peninsula. The Raad Ny Foillan coastal footpath runs past the front door, luring you in to over 90 miles of our breathtaking coastline and rolling hills.
The small and welcoming community of Port St Mary also contains some small independent shops, cafes, restaurants and a friendly harbourside pub.
Whether you prefer to head out and explore or put your feet up and watch the world go by, Quay Cottage is the perfect place for a memorable self catering holiday retreat in the Isle of Man.

An excellent stayA delightful location and a smart, well equipped cottage. Although we had problems with the television we had prompt help to replace the broken dish. There was little to fault. The instructions to reach the cottage needed a little more detail for the last quarter of a mile and the kitchen equipment would benefit from a few extra items. We would be very pleased to return to Quay Cottage in future years.

A fantastic location for a short stay in the Isle of ManThe cottage is in a lovely setting on the harbour side. Great for those who like coastal walks. The cottage is equipped with all mod cons. It would helped to have more instructions on how to use the microwave and electric rings. We had to call for help but Nick arrived quickly and gave a demo. The views from the living room and top bed room are of the harbour and beyond. It is not recommended for those with limited mobility as the stairs are steep and narrow. The only downside for us was that the downstairs en-suite had a very tiny sink though the shower was excellent and the hairdryer wasnt very effective. We would definitely stay there again. It is very handy for The shops. Port Erin is nearby. There is a regular bus service almost outside the back door. The Albert Pub is good for beer drinkers. The welcome pack was appreciated too.

Charming cottage with great viewsAs the brochure pictures show you get great views over the harbour, with the sun streaming in the front windows as you wake or at least we did! The cottage itself is small with a narrow galley kitchen (only one cook at a time), two reasonable sized double bedrooms with en-suite facilities and a comfy lounge spread over 3 floors inter-connected by narrow stairs, very narrow from ground floor (one bedroom and kitchen) to the first floor lounge. We loved it. The village of Port St Mary has a small Co-op, a post office/newsagents and a few handy take-away outlets and restaurants. All we tried were very friendly and the food great. You have only a hundred metres walk to the bus-stop with regular services to Port Erin, Castletown, the Airport and Douglas. Armed with a travel card you can sample all the buses, the steam and electric railways and the Mount Snaefell train - the best way to see the island (at least when the trains are running which they don't in the winter).

Birthday StaycationBeautiful cottage in a lovely location. Very clean accommodation and a cosy atmosphere. The only thing that let it down slightly was the extremely poor WiFi speed. We were unable to watch Netflix as the films would keep buffering and we got a notification that we'd reached the cap of the Internet for the month which wasn't great. Overall our experience was a lovely one.

Rooms with a viewBijou residence with lovely views over the harbour and beyond. Steep stairs but one soon gets used to those and remember not to bang ones head in way down. Everything one needs to prepare a meal in the galley kitchen. Welcomed pack of cheese, milk, bread butter biscuits, tea and coffee bags to start you off. Comfortable lounge area with 2 settees and table and chairs. Bedrooms on ground floor with ensuite shower room and other bedroom on top floor with large bath with shower over. Downside to that is one would have to get into bath before turning on shower as bath partly in wall recess. Only criticism would be the very small hairdryer, which isn't powerful enough to style or dry thick hair. Also I noticed that the vacuum cleaner was housed in the cupboard on ground floor, from a health and safety point of view I'm sure it's difficult to carry this particular one up all those stairs, especially the first 2 flights as stairs so narrow there. (I didn't attempt this) A bench or 2 seats outside the front would make the cottage stay ideal. All in all had a lovely time at the cottage and would recommend it to any able bodied person.

Fab spot on the Quayside for a chilled out StaycationWe stayed at this property last year, and enjoyed it so much we returned again. Close to the quay and some small pebble coves, great for rock pooling or scrambling, or just enjoying the passing of time. The sandy beach is in short and safe walking distance along a flat promenade walkway next to the sea. The town is small but has all the shops you need for a short stay. The cottage is well equipped for all your needs. I would definitely recommend. We are a family of 3 with a 6 year old, and it was a perfect little get away for us.

Staycation at Quay CottageMy family and I had a fantastic long weekend stay at Quay cottage! It was beautifully clean and tidy, and for a small cottage the use of space was excellent. We were grateful for the bread and milk left for us, although the fantastic location meant it was only a short (and very pleasant) walk to all the local amenities. Check in and out was very easy and all in all the holiday was relaxed and a lot of fun. Already looking forward to coming back next year! Thank you.

Harbour view.Location fantastic. Has been thoughtfully refurbished making the best of the room available. A few foldaway chairs would be nice for off Island visitors, we brought our own to enjoy the view.

Excellent 4 Night Stay for 2 Couples April 2021Excellent Parking Space for Merrcedees Car, Seats to sit on outside used by Helen for her morning cup of Lemon Jucie. Loved the 1st Floor Lounge where we played Canasta lokking out the window - having moved the round table to there. Galley Kitchen well presented and used for our breakfasts. Bedrooms and showers excellent. Location perfect for walking to A) The Albert b) The Fishery Restaurant and 3) the bus stop which we used for night out in Castletown! Local Taxis readily available.

Staycations the new normal ?We stayed at Quay cottage for four nights, after previously noting it on other staycations to Port St Mary. Property has been well refurbished from an old fisherman's cottage with everything you require for a short break but would have liked to seen a couple of fold up chairs so that you can sit outside and watch the world going by. Cottage is small with possibly the smallest kitchen we have stayed at and there are two flights of stairs, one of which is narrow. We have a relatively small car a Kia Soul which we could park directly outside but anything bigger would be a struggle. However there is plenty of parking nearby.

cosy harbour cottageThis 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 as it has the best views. Some lovely walks nearby and mostly on the level for those needing that. Close to The Fisheries Restaurant (superb) and the busy Albety pub with other eateries in the top of the village. Overall a lovely stay and would stay again. Welcome pack of milk, tea, bread, cheese etc provided as would seem to be the norm for Island escapes. Recommended.

Great harbour side staycation.Lovely little harbour side cottage with excellent facilities. Very suprised to find bread, cheese, butter & milk supplied when we arrived. Cottage was well furnished, very comfortable with excellent views. Located close to village shops and very close to one of the best pubs on the island. Originally booked for a two night stay but enjoyed it so much we contacted Island Escapes to ask if we could stay for a third night. Luckily the cottage was available for one more night and it was not a problem to extend our stay. Will definitely return.

Nice Cottage Great Harbour Views /But a Couple of issuesThis is a most attractive cottage and setting parking outside for one car but can park on harbour road on the way down to it as well if needed only 20 meters away. On entering the cottage there is a down stairs double bedroom with En suite shower room and toilet kitchen is opposite with all mod cons with bread butter milk tea coffee all provided nice touch did not get all this at the milking parlour bradda up a very steep staircase MIND YOUR HEAD to living room with free view tv and some nice candles to use living flame fire and lovely views of the harbour up another very steep staircase to top entrance MIND YOUR HEAD then 3 more steep steps MIND YOUR HEAD to another double bedroom En suite with a big bath and shower again great harbour views its all fully central heated and a great place to stay and very nice indeed. The couple of issues i have is the door of the cooker was not safe and on using the cooker on opening the door the glass in the door fell out as did the next part of the glass door luckily not smashing as it was very hot as i had heated the oven up ready to use i new it was broken before our arrival as some plastic fittings that hold the door together had been very crudely glued and put back in place but very dangerous indeed , other thing was very low staircase ceilings if your over 1.6 meters you will hit your head if you forget to duck as i did on going up and put a big gash to my scalp lots of blood .Would i stay again its a yes as the place is great so do not be put off just check cooker is fixed

STAYCATION IN PORT ST MARY AT QUAY COTTAGEThe cottage was very easy to find, with parking at the front. Clean & comfortable, beautiful views across the bay. Perfect for family as long as they are agile, stairs were a bit steep and narrow for my partner, but we had a very enjoyable stay.

Lovely staycation at Quay Cottage Port St MaryQuay Cottage is a beautifully renovated old fisherman's cottage directly on the seafront before the picturesque harbour in Port St Mary. It is maintained to the highest standard and was spotlessly clean and well presented. The bed (we only used one) was extremely comfortable and the bedroom had more than ample wardrobe and drawer space for our needs. The galley kitchen, though small, had every necessary device and space had been particularly well utilised. The situation of the cottage, a stone's throw from the pub and several restaurants - The Fishery, Pavilion and Andrea's - all visited and much enjoyed, is ideal and the coastal walk way around to Chapel Bay enjoyed on more than one occasion - though they really should do something about the extremely strong seaweed odour emanating from Chapel Bay! The excellent bus service was particularly useful to non drivers. All in all, a very pleasant 5 days, highly recommended.

Hidden gemAbsolutely delightful little cottage. The Cottage has been decorated to a very high and luxurious standard throughout, and was spotlessly clean. The location on the harbour is idyllic and all amenities are within a short walking distance. Very nice surprise to find a lovely welcome pack on arrival, containing locally produced milk, cheese, bread and butter amongst other things. Although we were not far from home, and only had a short stay, we felt a world away and definitely on holiday. We would definitely book again, and hopefully for a longer stay next time.

The Perfect StaycationAs a family, we have just returned from Quay Cottage and despite only travelling 40 minutes to Port St Mary, feel that we have really been away on holiday. The cottage is in a picturesque location with wonderful views from the windows. The interior design is modern and relaxing and the cottage contains everything needed for a fulfilling, self-catering experience. We would definitely stay again and will recommend to friends. The only thing I would comment on - and it is only a small suggestion - is the chunky key ring on the front door key because we had trouble closing the flap of the key box. Maybe there is a knack! Fantasia stay. Thank you very much, Kerry

Absolutely wonderful. Quay Cottage is a gem in an amazing location on the beautiful Isle of Man.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!
