Living in the Isle of Man
With its stunning unspoiled countryside, wooded glens, rolling hills, dramatic mountains and over 160km of unspoiled coastline, it’s perhaps not surprising that the Isle of Man is known as ‘the Jewel of the Irish Sea’.
Situated in the middle of the Irish Sea, the island covers an area of 572 sq.km but with a population of 80,000 the residents enjoy an unparalleled quality of life.
The island is home to a lively sporting calendar, rich arts, cultural and music scene. In addition to the world-famous TT Races, which attract over 30,000 motorbike fans during the two-week festival in May and June each year, the island also hosts annual blues, jazz and folk festivals, drawing performers and music fans from the UK and abroad. There are also a number of theatres and live performance venues around the island - the Gaiety Theatre being the most famous - which play host to stars from the worlds of comedy, dance, and music.
Getting around the island is easy; traffic jams are almost unheard of and the island’s extensive bus network connects all majors towns and villages with the capital. The island also boasts some very unique forms of transport such as the steam railway, which runs between the island’s capital and the south of the island, an electric tram system which connects Douglas with Ramsey on the north east coast and the horse trams, which run up and down Douglas Promenade throughout the summer season.
Travelling to and from the island couldn’t be easier. The flight time to London is just over an hour and there are also daily direct flights to Belfast, Birmingham, Bristol, Dublin, Edinburgh, Gatwick, Manchester and Leeds/Bradford. Ferries also operate between Belfast, Dublin, Heysham and Liverpool with sailing times of between two and four hours.
The Island’s capital Douglas is home to the main economic, business and retail districts. Douglas is a lively and dynamic city on the south east coast boasting a wide array of pubs, bars, nightlife and restaurants, big brand retailers, chic boutiques and specialist local food stores - making it an ideal base for anyone who enjoys city living at a more relaxed pace.
For all of these reasons, the Isle of Man is recognised as one of the highest quality of life locations in Europe. It enjoys a stable and diverse economy based around high value sectors such as financial services, aerospace, clean tech, telecommunications, e-gaming and the space industry and unemployment is less than 3%. Its unspoiled countryside, diverse career opportunities, excellent standards of healthcare and education, suitability for family life and the lowest crime rate in the British Isles, also resulted in the island scoring the highest ever rating polled by MORI in its survey of ‘best places to live’.

Frequently Asked Questions about renting in the Isle of Man
Answers to frequently asked questions about renting with Dandara in the Isle of Man.
Can I hang pictures on the walls?
This is allowed if picture hooks are used. As a general rule of thumb the property should be left as it was found minus ‘fair wear and tear’.
If anything breaks down who is responsible?
Providing that there is a genuine fault, the Landlord will be responsible for the charges incurred. Dandara will ensure that any faults will be looked at as soon as possible.
Can I have pets?
The keeping of pets is at the discretion of the landlord and is dependent on size, number and type of pet. If permission is granted, an additional deposit of £200.00 will be required for a pet, and all carpets and flooring must be professionally cleaned at the end of the lease. Pets are NOT allowed in any apartments.
What is the minimum term for a tenancy?
Leases are usually for a fixed term of twelve months, although some Landlords may consider shorter leases. Leases on brand new properties are for a minimum 12 month term. (Rates & service charges are included within the rent for apartments only)
Is the deposit refundable?
At the end of the term of the tenancy we will check the inventory and schedule of conditions and deduct from the deposit paid by the Tenant any amount for damage to the Landlord’s property or possessions.
