Would stay again.The apartment is modernised to a high and professional standard with innovative "natural daylight" skylights in the kitchen area. Everything you require for day to day living is provided. Not mentioned on the website was the complimentary milk, butter, cheese and bread. So you won't starve if you arrive too late for the shops. A pleasant view of the harbour from the patio. I only scored 4 for comfort as the bed was a little soft, personal preference only. I only scored 4 for location as the harbour was only visible from the patio. Overall, an excellent base for exploring the south of the island. Would definitely stay again.

TIDES REACHTides Reach was perfect for our 3 night stay in May. As a Port Erin girl is was lovely to see the south of the island from a different perspective in the morning and evening. A very lovely quiet escape indeed.

Perfect locationTides Reach is in a perfect location for walks along the shoreline & picturesque quay. Both shops & a pub within easy walking distant. The property is extremely clean with everything you would require for a comfortable holiday.

Tides Reach ReviewLovely stay at Tides Reach. Very comfortable, clean and had all equipment needed for our stay. St Mary Port was a nice place to visit with coastal walks on the doorstep.

Lovely little cottageThis lovely little cottage was very handy for visiting family. When we arrived it was warm and cozy, and sparklingly clean. However it proved to be too warm and cosy, we were melting. Once we discovered that the underfloor heating was on high, 24 hours a day, and we turned it off, we were far more comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped, although a proper kettle is needed, rather than the water boiler thing. The bedroom is lovely with plenty of storage and dressing gowns provided. We were worried that the bed would be uncomfortable as it's quite soft and a bit rickety, however we slept surprisingly well. We'd definitely stay here again.

Modern apartment for 1 or 2 people.It is a well equipped modern apartment which was immaculate. The location is good but note that the street parking closest to the property is limited to 2 hours during the day. There is very little natural light in the apartment so had to have the bright lights on whenever we were in there. Initially we thought we would be likely to return to Tides Reach but our view on that did change. The downside for us, apart from the lack of natural light, was the early morning noise from upstairs. Not ideal when you are on holiday. I might still recommend the property to others because of its location & cleanliness etc. but I would also point out the issues that we had with it.

Wonderful holidayThe apartment was modern and very clean, it had everything we needed for our weeks holiday. The mattress was a little soft for us and the bed lights very bright however these observations did not effect the wonderful holiday we had.

Return to Tides ReachThis is our second time at Tides Reach and it never disappoints! We had a lovely time and relaxed in the tranquil area of Port st Mary. The apartment was clean, fresh and had all the modern amenities, we had fabulous weather where we could sit outside the apartment and enjoy the view of the harbour or walk along the beach or cliffs.. The bus service, local shops and pub are excellent! The host were lovely and very informative and made us feel most welcome We would highly recommend this apartment for two and we will look forward to returning again ?

Great stayThe property was very clean and newly fitted with all modern amenities. Smart tv and wifi were excellent. The kitchen was good and there was a breakfast bar to eat meals and a dish washer. It was lovely to have such easy access to the harbour area and it was also only a short walk (10 minutes) to the large sandy beach. The property was quiet despite having the benefit of being near to both. There was a small outside area which is good for taking in the sun. There was ample street parking (and a car park) nearby so that was never an issue. There was a small Coop in Port St Mary, but Port Erin is a 10 minute drive and has a much larger supermarket. Our hosts were very welcoming, friendly and helpful.

Sneaking away in plain sightA brilliant little nook hideaway, a stones throw from the harbour, small walk to the beach, pub and shops. Comfortable, cozie, homely. A brilliant stay for 2. We didnt want to leave. Welcoming hosts and lots to explore. Highly recommended.

Tides ReachA great location for walking. The property is very well equipped and the refurbishment is clearly recent and done with taste. We have given 3/5 for comfort because the bed is far too soft for us. Attention if you have a car! As per the website parking is available on the High Street but, be warned that High Street is a disc parking zone for 2 hours only between 9 & 6,

Excellent apartment in great locationWe had a wonderful stay at Tides Reach. Everything was impeccable and worked well and the situation right next to the beautiful and peaceful harbour was just great. Excellent restaurants, local pub and walks also. All good - thanks.

Beautiful, modern apartment.Tides Reach is a lovely compact modern apartment with beautifully tiled floors in central area of Port St Mary. Within easy reach of good restaurants and a very nice, friendly pub,The Albert just down the road. Very quiet even though it is situated near the main road. There is a nice seating patio area outside if staying in the warmer weather and a very useful rotary line if you wanted to do any washing. A very short walk down the alley way to the really pretty quayside, and if able to continue there is access to lots of beautiful Coastal walks. Ideal for couples to have a little get away treat.

Sonnymoon holiday the day after my sons weddingWe had the most wonderful holiday at Tides Reach, the apartment was very well equipped with everything you needed, it was very clean and a fabulous location, the high street had the co-op, fish and chip shop, Chinese takeaway, Indian restaurant and a highly recommended fish restaurant called The Fishery which was delightful and the pub The Albert was too. We had a boat trip to the calf of man which was a great day out if you like walking, and the local bus service is extremely good too. Also when we arrived at the apartment we was pleasantly surprised that the owners had left a welcome pack, which was greatly appreciated! We would love to stay at Tides Reach again!

Beautiful little placeThis is a lovely modern property done to a high standard. Has everything that you need. My only issue was the overly bright lighting especially in the lounge area
Simon, Lowestoft wrote a review on 22nd of June 2021
Excellent!!I was very impressed with 'Tides Reach' It was spotlessly clean, immaculately presented, superbly equipped with top quality fittings and furnishings. The owners Robert & Cat went out of their way to help when required. I was pleasantly surprised to find perishable items had been provided, bread, butter, cheese & milk which was very much required as I was isolating after arrival. Robert even brought a newspaper the next day. The location is excellent and the outdoor space very practical. Very importantly the Albert Hotel is less that a 2 minute walk and I now know this is one of the best pubs on the island!! I will definitely return to 'Tides Reach' !!

Stylish stay in Port St MaryBrand new appartment close to the harbor in Port St Mary. The place is far above usual standards regarding furniture, equipment in the kitchen and lay-out. Very tasteful interior design, sufficient space for up to 2 people. Sunny terrace in front of the flat, walking distance to coffee shop, supermarket and local pub/restaurants. Will definitely come back!
