When is a Homestay not a Homestay?

Not all Homestays are created equal. We are aware of some sites promoting unregistered homestay properties to visitors coming to the Isle of Man TT® or Manx Grand Prix. Isle of Man Tourism and MiQuando, are committed to improving quality in the Tourism Industry, and guest accommodation is a key part of this.

The official Homestay scheme aims to provide visitors with a comfortable place to stay at a reasonable price. To achieve this, all officially Registered Hosts must meet a set of minimum standards and guidelines.

In the Isle of Man, it is illegal to provide accommodation to paying guests, unless you are registered with the Department For Enterprise or registered on the Homestay Scheme (only to operate during TT® and Manx Grand Prix periods).

Our Homestay Visitor Information pack contains pretty much everything you need to know before you get here.

Why Choose a Registered Isle of Man Homestay?

Must meet the safety requirements as set out by the Isle of Man Fire and Rescue Service, Fire Safety Department. Properties that do not meet these standards will not be accepted onto the official Homestay scheme.
All officially Registered Hosts have £5 million of Public Liability Insurance, to cover guests, after all, accidents can happen, especially in unfamiliar surroundings.
