About Steve Sayers

Businessman, photographer, sailor, skier and loads more. We also have our own private apartment, berth and boat in Duquesa. The family and I are there regularly and we cannot recommend Duquesa and the area highly enough. Venturing further afield into Andalusia is fantastic as well so you have the best of both worlds. Come an see why we like it so much :-)

El hombre de negocios, fotógrafo, marinero, esquiador y cargas más. También tenemos nuestro propio apartamento privado, litera y barco en Duquesa. La familia y yo estamos allí con regularidad y no podemos recomendar Duquesa y el área lo suficiente. Aventurarse más lejos en Andalucía es fantástico, así por lo que tiene lo mejor de ambos mundos. Ven una ver por qué nos gusta tanto :-)

Steve Sayers purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Steve Sayers chose Manilva area

Luxury 2 bedroom 2 bathroom frontline beach apartment + secure garaged parking in a fantastic location - great local food/bars, amenities and the whole of Andalusia to explore (Ronda and Tarifa are fantastic). Just over an hour from Malaga by car/ half an hour from Gibraltar. The Port of Duquesa - El Peurto DE La Duquesa - the port of the Duchess, is set between the Spanish town of Sabinillas and the quiet fishing village of El Castillo, all within easy level promenade walking distance. Duquesa and the surrounding area has a variety of local and cosmopolitan bars and restaurants to choose from and everything is on your doorstep in the port, Castillo and Sabillinas. Check out Google Earth satellite view from the map too see how well placed the apartment is.

The ground floor location is great for families and the large shaded terrace overlooks the pool without being too close.

The pool and the beach offer hours of glorious sunshine, but the terrace is a welcome retreat.

The port has regular craft markets and the 'lucky lucky men' (very respectful) sell loads of value goods like designer bags watches and sunglasses - barter though!

The port is on three levels (wheelchair accessible) with a host of restaurants and quirky bars. Our favourites bars are the Leisure Lounge, The Bar, Ocean Bar, Bar C, and Kinsales, our favourite restaurant is Sabor Toscana, great Italian food without pizza (Andreas is a brilliant host), but there are many more great ones and no space hear to mention them. Do try Tim's fish n chips at least once, the battered cod or fish gougons and a drink at the leisure lounge is a great way to chill.

Duquesa is an expatt and private residential/let/Spanish area with no package holiday accommodation/hotels, its a get away from it all place that still has charm yet can provide all the fun you want and if you hire a car from Bruno's (best car hire) in the port you can sample the many delights of Andalusia, Ronda, Casares Tarifa etc

Great location near the port and beach lovely complex well maintained

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely time apartment lovely with all the comforts of home. In such a great location near all the restaurants, bars markets that Duquesa has to offer. Golf course within driving distance. Gibraltar about 35 mins away if you want to visit. Also the Roman baths is a different wee experience. The complex is kept very clean and has 24/7 friendly security which is good.

A great location to go to other places near by e.g. Estepona, Marbella, Benvista. Duquesa well worth a visit have been here on many occasions and love it.

Tired and grubby

  • 1 of 5

This is described as a luxury apartment, this only applies to the bricks and mortar.

This is the first and only time I have ever had such disgusting, unhygienic bedding, totally unacceptable. We had booked this apartment for 4 weeks and on changing the bedding found the duvets, mattress and pillow protectors badly covered in unhygenic stains and had to request items to be washed and replaced.

On arrival we discovered a unpleasant, strong drain smell coming from the en-suite bathroom, which lasted for the whole stay, some days worse than others.When reported we were told it is a typical Spanish problem, but this is hard to believe as it is a modern complex.

With regards to the kitchen it is very poorly equipped, this included 2 burnt cooking pans, a disgusting baking tray, which were unusable and we had to buy our own to use. The crockery and glasses are incomplete sets, having to use shallow soup bowls for cereal, 1 high ball glass and 3 tumblers as an example, when the apartment is listed for 6 persons.

We feel that we have overpaid for our stay considering the condition and position of the apartment, there are nicer appartments in the complex for the same or less money.

If it was not for the fact that we have 2 lots of friends flying out to stay we would have packed up and gone home after the 1st week upon finding the very unhygenic bedding.

All the consumable items e.g bedding, towels, crockery and electrical kitchen goods need to be replaced.

I would not recommend anyone staying here as the owner is not concerned about the comfort of his paying guests.

Owner's Response: I note your review. I am sorry that you did not enjoy your stay. Thankfully this is not the normal review or experience of my guests, some of whom are regulars. I do hope you find something more to your taste next time. I don't wish to go into detail, but your final comment (sentence) is just not true.

An excellent apartment.

  • 5 of 5

This was an excellent apartment. Well situated to the local amenities; which were all within walking distance. If you want a nice relaxing holiday; I would recommend this area, and apartment. Local restaurants and bars are superb, mostly situated around the marina. Plenty of night life if you want it. The area suits all tastes. Beach is excellent and you can walk for miles along the pathways at the rear of the beaches

Location location location ..... excellent apartment in a lovely area!

  • 4 of 5

This truly is a lovely apartment, in fact some of the pictures don't really do it justice. We had a great time here and it is a great base for exploring Andalusia which is highly recommended!

The apartment fell 1 star short of full marks because we tend to like a balcony which attracts a little sun at some point in the day but this one didn't, i appreciate for some this might actually be a bonus though! It is plenty big enough with some nice furniture overlooking the pool though. The only other slightly annoying thing was some kind of generator noise heard from the bedrooms, it could be quite annoying late at night... it was not constant but did go on and off periodically - luckily by bed time we were exhausted so it did not spoil our sleep too much.

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in Duquesa in this lovely apartment. We returned because our first stay, last year, was great too and we wanted to take our daughter and her partner with us, who hadn't been previously. Everybody is so helpful and friendly and most of the waiters in the local bars in the port remembered us from last year - I'm not sure that was a good or bad thing though! The beach bars and all the restaurants serve local fresh food and it was always beautifully cooked and tasted very fresh. The apartment itself was clean and everything you needed was there, even shampoo, conditioner, washing tablets, sun lotion etc - mind you these were invariably left behind from the previous occupants but very welcome all the same, and we indeed returned the favour and left some of our products behind when we came home. As the apartment is on the ground level it only takes about a minute to get to the pool and, the time of the year we went in May, there was always plenty of sun loungers available. As we had been to the area before this time we spent quite a lot of our time relaxing by the pool reading quite a few of the many books that were also available to the occupants of the complex in the reception area and also on the bookshelf in the apartment, and In fact I left one of mine behind for somebody to read who went in after us.

Again, I cant recommend this place highly enough to anybody that hasn't visited before.

Owner's Response: Mont thanks Barry for your second 5 star review! Most appreciated, as is your return custom :-) Duquesa is a fantastic place to chill or explore Andalusia. Local facilities are excellent and improving and Puerto Banus and Marbella are not far away to the North and Gibraltar and Tariffa not far to the South. So glad you enjoyed everything again. Regards, Steve.

Spent nearly four weeks in the apartment and couldn't ask for more.

  • 5 of 5

Duquesa is a fabulous unspoilt gem on the Costa Del Sol and this apartment is perfect to enjoy all the facilities this quaint port has to offer.

The apartment is very modern,well appointed and very nicely furnished. Being on the ground floor it is very handy for the swimming pool and very convenient to the secure car park.

Location is brilliant being 75 metres to the beach and a very casual 2 minute stroll to the marina with its excellent choice of multi national restaurants and bars.

Highly recommended and definitely will be returning.
