The Isle of Man Self Catering Owners Association currently has 37 Members, representing 89 separate self-catering units which provide capacity for 321 bed-spaces. Properties are spread throughout the Island.

We communicate regularly with the Membership via simple Newsletters; as at March 2018 thirty one had been sent out to Members. In addition we also run a Closed Group for Members on Facebook.

We do hope that you will consider joining us by completing the Membership form available for download and posting it back to the address on the form.

The current subscription has been set by the Members at a rate of £20 for 2018.


The IOMSCOA are developing our policies as we go along; we have so far committed to supporting:
Regular grading inspections
Occupancy Survey being conducted by TSE on behalf of DfE Tourism.

We are continuing to monitor the views of our Members regarding the operation of online booking systems and the future development of the official visitisleofman website.

However, it is hoped that the Association can do much more than just deal with problems related to IT matters. At past meetings presentations have been given by speakers from industry and we also invite Rob Callister MHK to speak at our AGM
