Great stay loved every minute.
Great place really enjoyed our stay. Apartment is perfect. Nice walk to Duquesa about 20 minutes and taxi ride back as we have two children under 11.
Great week away
Very spacious and very clean apartment with everything you could possibly need. Owner and local representative / housekeeper are very easy to deal with made the whole experience very simple and pain free. You are a little way from the main restaurant area at Duquesa Marina, but taxis are easy to get and you can walk there in about 20/25 mins (uphill coming back!)
Just received the review!! Thank you for your good comments!! Hope your stay was nice and see you next year, maybe!!!
Very spacious, well equipped apartment, which is beautifully decorated. The apartment was clean and there was a nice bottle of wine waiting for us. Only downside was the housekeeper didn't show up to let us in, but that was sorted by a very helpful security personnel stationed at the entrance barrier. The apartment is located some 1.5 miles from Duquesa Port, we had hired a car which made things easier. Worth a visit.
We stayed here for one week myself and my two sons aged 15 and 9.
I wanted somewhere walking distance to shops/restaurants and good wifi. This apt seemed to tick the boxes but to make sure I emailed the owner to check and he confirmed 300 m to shops and restaurants and good wifi.
This turned out to be completely untrue.
You need a car for this apt, it is in the middle of nowhere on a massive estate. The nearest shop and restaurant are 1km away down a steep hill. A further 1.5 km gets you to the marina and beach. They are nice with lots of restaurants but not possible to walk. However parking was easy enough and there seemed to be plenty of taxis around if you wanted to get taxis.
The wifi was rubbish. It was a small dongle connected to vodaphone 3G signal. It over heated if you left it on more than 10 min and there was only 1 bar of signal the whole time we stayed.
The apartment is nice, spacious and was lovely and clean. However I found it rather basic. The towels were threadbare, the beds were cheap with thin mattresses and pillows.
The apt overlooks the pool. The sea view is a little misleading. You can only see it if you stand at a certain angle on the terrace. The rest of the view is of the pool.
The pool area is nice with plenty of loungers and very clean.
There is an underground car park which is handy for keeping car secure and cool.
The local tapas cafe 2 min drive away 1km from apt is very friendly and does a nice cappuccino and fresh baguettes every morning which is nice.
The other disappointing aspect of my stay was that it took over 3 weeks to get my deposit money back which I found unacceptable given the apt was left clean and tidy.
Overall it was OK but I doubt I would go and stay again and I felt I had been misled by the owner on my questions which meant when I arrived I was really disappointed which is never a great start to a holiday.
Firstly, it was on the site,you need a car for this apartment and we bought a good quality matresses and sheets and nobody complain, new towels, secondly, concerning the Wifi, during july and august, the signal was very bad in Spain and Manilva has not 4G yet and about the deposit, I apologyse, I simply forgot!!!
As we speak now, the apartment is spot on and we hope you come back in our apartment as soon as possible.
The apartment is absolutely wonderful. It's the kind of holiday home I dream about owning.
From booking to arriving back home our trip was made so easy. The owner replied promptly to all our queries and she couldn't have been more helpful.
I stayed with my seven year old and my two year old .The apartment is beautiful. It was clean and well equips.
As I don't drive I was happy that the super market, beach and port were all in easy reach.
I would definitely rebook and stay here again.
Thank you very much for your nice comment!!!
Hope to see you next time!!!
lovely spacious apartment
We had a short break of 5 days in this lovely apartment. Everything that you would need was catered for here. You do need a car to get about as it is uphill all the way from the port or taxis are cheap enough.
Thank you very much for your comment!! Hope to see you again next year!!
Have a nice chistmas!!
Lovely sandy beaches 5 mins drive from the apartment. "The sunshine coast" has more than 300 days of sunshine a year and the coastline extends more than 150 km with a choice of sandy stretches or secluded rocky coves.
Average temperature in summer 32/35 degrees.
Nearest Airports are Malaga (1 hour). Gibraltar ( 35mins ). Car hire recommended.
Closest town is Sabinillas 3km, Manilva 4km, Estepona 16km, San Pedro de Alcantara 30/40km, Marbella 40/50km, Malaga 98 km. Nearest supermarket (Supersol) at Sabinillas. There are small shops, bars and restaurants at "Puerto La Duquesa" just at the bottom of the hill. We are only 30/35 mins from Gibraltar where ferries are available to go to Morocco. The Sierra Nevada is within a couple oh hours driving also the village of Ronda is a must see.
The marina at "Puerto La Duquesa" only a 3 mins drive away is excellent for dining with a large choice from tapas to steak, via indian, Chinese and Moroccan. Sabinillas, the more Spanish town, has good restaurants & bars all along the seafront. There is a weekly market each sunday in Manilva and a Friday market in Sabinillas. San Pedro de Alcantara, only 30km away has a superb beach with a selection of "chirringitos" (beach bar/restaurant) plus a lively town centre for shopping. Those that like star spotting can be in Marbella in under 30 mins.
