DescriptionThe White House is a spacious 3 bedroomed house in the south of the Isle of Man. Just a couple of minutes walk away from the sandy beach of Gansey bay, the property is located close to the seaside towns of Port Erin and Port St Mary.
South facing to the rear, the property benefits from a large private garden which is a real suntrap during the summer months. Inside the whole house has recently been refurbished to modern standards with underfloor heating throughout. Three bedrooms all offer lovely sea and rural views, with the double being an ensuite. The property also benefits from a family bathroom on the first floor which features a bath and shower.
Downstairs a large living room provides plenty of room and seating for everyone and there is also a separate dining room with kitchen adjoining.
The property benefits from private parking on the driveway, and there is also a small shed which could be used for storage of bikes or outdoor equipment.
From the doorstep it is just a short walk to The Shore Hotel, a pub offering great home cooked food and real ales. The Raad ny Foillan coastal footpath also passes close by, as does the Isle of Man Steam Railway.

We stayed over new year and the house if comfortable and toasty warm..We all loved our stay at the White House over new year. Two minute walk to the beach and 5 mins to one of the nicest pubs. The house had everything we needed and we would highly recommend this.

Lovely StayJust what others have already said really. Lovely quiet location a few minutes walk to the beach and pub. The dining room chairs had just been replaced when we arrived as others had mentioned they were getting on a bit. I would recommend for a relaxing place to stay with horses in the field next door and cows over the road.

Its so nice to be out of the way although when watching the racing from the bungalow Its a bit of a track getting back as they dont open the road till 10. :30 but worth it Just to say we will fully recommend this place and will be back We can also recommend doing a days fishing fantastic and just around the corner and we court a few ??

Beautiful house, great location.We were very pleased when we arrived at the White House. Great location, just a short walk from the waterfront. There is the Shore Hotel just a short walk away providing excellent meals and Port St Mary and Port Erin villages are only a short drive or a pleasant walk. The house was immaculate with all home comforts. Very warm with super under floor heating. There was a beautiful back garden with seating area. We could see the sea from the upstairs windows. No complaints at all, could have stayed much longer.

A spacious accommodation, very comfortable. We'll equipped kitchen.We had a very pleasant stay at The White House. Very well equipped kitchen and comfortable armchairs and sofa We had a problem with the dinning room chairs, the joints were very loose and we did trap our fingers on more than one occasion. This problem Could very easily be rectified.

A Great StayWe had a great few days stay at the White House. It was nice to stay somewhere that was a real home from home, but decorated to give a flavor of the Isle of Man.

Great CottageLovely stay at the White House making our first visit to the Isle Of Man very enjoyable. Peaceful location and within walking distance to great pub/restuarant. Large supermarket in Port Erin. Cooking equipement basic but adequate otherwise could not fault it. Beware driveway ok for a small car, might be a squeeze for a large SUV.

Home from homeWe had a wonderful time staying at The White House. Everything was clean and comfortable. All our needs were taken care of, so we felt as though we could happily live there indefinitely! Beach 200m away, and the Shore pub/hotel 5 mins walk.

Rent a car for this lovely home stayWe had a very enjoyable stay at the White House. A couple of helpful hints for those coming from coffee loving America.....there is no drip coffee maker. Also, we did not have a car and relied on buses for transportation around the island. It is quite a walk with luggage to the house from the closest bus stops. Island Escapes was very nice to work with throughout the pandemic cancelations and just answering general questions that we had. The house was super clean! There are also a few horses to make friends with in the field next to the house. Very short walk to the beach.

Great beach location, comfortable house with lovely lawned garden.We had a lovely summer staycation at The Whitehouse. The weather wasnt great but that didnt stop us getting out on the beaches and surrounding area. The house is in a great location with views of fields, hills and sea from different windows around the house. The house was well furnished with a lovely lawned garden, great for kids! Would highly recommend staying at The Whitehouse.

A wonderful rural retreat.This is the first time we had stayed in Port St Mary on the Island so it was quite a change for us. The House has been extensively modernised. It has a large rear garden, and a drive that you can park a vehicle on, but it is quite a squeeze for a SUV. We found the kitchen rather small to entertain from and it lacks basic cooking equipment. For instance no food tongs, difficult to cook on the grill without! Sadly the cutlery and crockery do not match and is a disappointment for a cottage that is a 4 star. The bathroom and e-suite are fabulous and really well presented. We had a very nice time at the White House, it is ideally situated in the south of the Island in a wonderful rural position.

Lovely and cosy!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.
