Guestbook comments from the owner

"Absolutely wonderful apartment, lots of attention to detail, clean, bright, comfortable, well positioned for sun & shade, with lovely views of nature all around. All the facilities needed for a relaxing stay & a nice basket of essentials awaiting upon your arrival. We love walking so the fact we were on a hill was a bonus, even steeper incline above apartment into Manilva - perfect! Nothing was too much trouble when asked of Mandy - couldn't have been more thoughtful. Highly recommend". Thanks, Joanne Snow.

"My family and I have just returned from a 2 week stay at this apartment. I can honestly say that this is the best equipped and furnished apartment that we have ever stayed in, a real home from home. There was a welcome pack waiting for us, together with toiletries in both bathrooms - more like a 4 star hotel than a rental apartment. Only a 10 minute stroll down the hill to Duquesa harbour with its bars and restaurants. The owner was extremely helpful throughout and very acc

Fantastic apartment!

  • 5 of 5

The accommodation was spotless, very well decorated and equipped. Air conditioning system worked perfect as other amenities. We loved the terrace, very spacious with comfortable furniture. Welcoming basket was waiting for us at arrival. Amanda is a great host, very informative and helpful. We had really great time there and were very sad to have to go back home. I highly recommend the apartment and if I ever go again to Costa del Sol I will definitely stay in this apartment! Thank you Amanda for everything!

When we arrived, we were delighted by the tasteful décor and cleanliness of the apartment. Spotless! The views are stunning. All set in lovely, beautifully kept gardens with 2 easily accessed pools. The port and beach are only 10 min. walk away with lots of very good restaurants and night life - something for everyone

Every need was catered for, even washing machine, and outdoor barbeque on the comfortable terrace with, Cannot fault this appartment - going to book again for next year!

Most fantastic apartment we have ever stayed in.

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic apartment! Has everything you could want from the BBQ on the terrace a jacuzzi bath and a very well equity kitchen. The pools were great and never busy and we could walk to the port for all the bars and restaurants in the evenings which were buzzing. Everything was spotless and high quality (Egyptian cotton sheets! ) Amanda also supplied us with a welcome basket full of goodies like tea wine and milk which was a lovely surprise. We will come again!

Lovely, spacious appartment with sea view

  • 4 of 5

We (family with 2 year old) had a great time in Amanda's appartement. Which has all the comfort you need and is lovely decorated. We enjoyed Nice barbecues on the big terras. Because of the parking garage the car was always cool. Our grandson couldn't get enough of the swimmingpools in the garden. The small town was nice with a lovely harbour and nice beaches. The service from Amanda made sure we had a lovely holiday.

Una semana estupenda

  • 5 of 5

El apartamento es precioso, limpio y muy bien cuidado por dentro. La estadía fue muy agradable. Las piscinas son geniales tanto si vas en familia como si vas en pareja.

Queda muy cerca de varias playas, 5 minutos en coche. Las playas no están abarrotadas de gente y la arena es fina.

Queda también muy cerca del puerto deportivo en donde hay una gran cantidad de restaurantes y bares de copas de donde escoger. Desde el puerto deportivo hay acceso a la playa, por lo que después se cenar se puede ir a dar un paseo a la orilla muy tranquilamente.

De verdad que repetiríamos sin dudarlo, solo que la próxima vez nos iríamos más días :)
