Little holiday with the dogsVery enjoyable stay, dogs loved the walks and views amazing. Smelt musty downstairs and toilet upstairs was right outside a bedroom door. It didnt spoil the staycation and had a lovely time.

Exchange HouseOur stay was most enjoyable, helped by lovely weather, an excellent location with friendly people on our trips out and about the island. The view from the property was a delight overlooking the harbour with beautiful sunrises and sunsets over the sea. The accommodation was well equipped and comfortable. The only negative factor was the ground floor. it smelled musty probably due to poor air circulation and the bedroom there was not as comfortable and pleasant as those on the floor above. All my dealings with the company Island Escapes were efficient and friendly. All in all an excellent holiday.

Perfect holiday home.Exchange House was the ideal base for our Island visit and we love Port St Mary. We felt very lucky to find this house. It was bigger than we thought it would be and so comfortable, the view from the balcony is lovely. We would love to stay here again. Island Escapes are an excellent company to deal with and easy to contact. Thanks Nick!

Perfect Family GetawayThe Exchange House is lovely. There is a nice view of the harbor and bay. We loved having the french doors open to let the sea breeze in. The house is well furnished and very comfortable. The kitchen has nice quality appliances and cookware. There was plenty of room for our family of six. I definitely recommend this property and would stay here again in the future.

Great Location and ViewSuper comfortable house in an excellent location with great views of the harbour. The living room was spacious, light, airy and comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped. All bedrooms were of a good size although some of the furniture was a bit large (especially our bed which was massive but sooo comfortable!) and the downstairs twin room would benefit from some storage/drawers and hanging rail/hooks. We had a brilliant time and would highly recommend this property. We would definitely like to revisit.

Beautiful sea side stay in quiet and relaxing Port St MaryImpeccably furnished accommodation with everything we needed. Incredible views across the sea in Port St Mary, all the way to Langness. Very convenient for bus link to Port Erin, Castletown and Douglas (1 min walk). Excellent family-run pub - The Albert - less than 1 min away, with great range of local ales and monthly Manx music nights. Approx 5-10min walk from Co-op for groceries, newsagents, pharmacy, and various restaurants/take aways (fish and chips, Chinese, Italian, Indian); 1 min from seafood restaurant.

Extremely well catered for, very functional, well situated, great views from balconyVery functional, pretty, clean, well catered for and homely. Everything worked well. Maybe just one minor point- there is no parking space outside.

Lovely holiday homeWe stayed in Exhange house for 5 nights. It was well equipped and with a very nice standard of equipment. The house has beautiful views of Port St Mary harbour and a little balcony that is off the lounge kitchen to sit and enjoy the views. The kitchen is on the top floor of the property. The property has no outside space but you are literally a few minutes walk to the beach. There are nice restaurants near by and convenience stores all in walking distance and a bus stop which takes you on the main routes.
