Lovely but NOT 3 bedrooms as advertised
Whilst the apartment was lovely we were very surprised and disappointed to find that it was only 2 bedrooms and not 3 as advertised. It caused a few issues with sleeping arrangements
What a view.
Great location, fantastic choice of pools, a couple of negatives
1) property is advertised as 3 bedroom, it only has two however there is a sofa bed in the living room but this does involve moving furniture etc which you don’t really want to be doing whilst on holiday 2) the community rules now state no BBQ allowed, did not realise this until I received a visit mid way through cooking and told would have to extinguish bbq.
The owner of the property and management company extremely helpful and on hand to help with any questions, a well equipped property fantastic sea view and great location to explore surrounding area.
Stayed at the apartment recently for 11 days. Lovely spacious apartment with large terrace.
Fully equipped with everything you could want. Very comfortable bed. Pool and garden areas well maintained with great views. The walk down to town is okay but its a toil walking back up.
I would recommend this apartment to others.
Found this apartment on Home and away site. It was ideally situated for us as our son lives two blocks down. The apartment was everything we hoped it would be, very clean upon arrival and nice little touches like a bottle of water in the fridge and tea bags and little cream cartons on the side. As an English man a cup of tea was needed on arrival so this was a bonus as we arrived on a Sunday and the local shops were closed.
We had requested from the owner extra linen so our grandchildren could stop with us and this was waiting for us upon arrival . All through the booking and after the owner Eva couldn't have been more helpful. We will deffinetly use the apartment again in the future should it be available.
The only downside to the apartment is that it is situated at the top of a hill which in August is a mare to walk up, I refuse to drive while I'm on Holiday because driving is a big part of my job. If you drive while your over there this is not a problem.
Thank you very much!!! :-)
Stylish apartment overlooking sea and Duquesa Golf
I can only confirm the several very positive reviews before this. This property does exactly what it says on the tin, and the owner's description is accurate in all respects, although I'd suggest the terrace enjoys views to the south-east and round to the south-west, meaning nearly all-day sun, although the size and depth of the terrace means there is not much DIRECT sun coming into the living room. In the summer months, this feature (i.e. the rooms remaining cool despite the sunshine) would probably be a much bigger advantage than during the autumn and winter seasons. The apartment is neat, sensibly laid out, very nicely furnished, and well-appointed all round.
Everything was as listed, and in good condition. WiFi is available and mobile WiFi using a prepaid SIM card, and good home entertainment facilities. The apartment itself was spotlessly clean on our arrival and the Urbanizacion Coto Real and the local agency Duquesa Estates both seemed to be well-run operations. When minor problems arose during our stay, they were handled promptly and with a smile - always a good sign.
The apartment looks out over several holes of the Duquesa Golf Course (not in great condition while we were staying - we played instead at Doña Julia in Casares Costa), and down to the sea and the attractive marina at Puerto de la Duquesa.
Yes, walking to the bars and restaurants in Duquesa or Sabinillas is perfectly do-able, although the return is uphill, but really one does need a car to get around here. Parking is possible in the garage or on the street by the front entrance. There are numerous swimming pools to choose from, though in November/December there were not many swimmers, despite some very warm days!
The owner communicated very well, and provided a wealth of information, making our stay very easy.
In terms of local sights, try to get up to the white hill town of Casares, which is remarkably well preserved. The old centre of Estepona also has some charming streets that have not lost their Spanish flavour. Macues on the waterfront in Puerto de la Duquesa is the standout local restaurant: "old school" service and excellent food in pleasant surroundings.
I would definitely recommend Casa Dolce Vita to anyone, with the possible exception of younger travellers seeking a busy clubbing nightlife: Coto Real is rather quiet (nicely so), as is the entire Western end of Andalucia in general. Torremolinos this is NOT. :-)
Wunderschön eingerichtete Wohnung in Top Lage

Ausgestattet mit 2 schönen Bädern und 2 Schlafzimmern sowie eines ausziehbaren Doppelsofas bietet sie Platz für bis zu 6 Personen. Sie ist ideal gelegen und bietet einen wunderschönen Meerblick. Für mich im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes eine Dolce Vita.
