Apartment beautifully furnished comfy and warm

  • 4 of 5

As stated very well furnished, good heating system, beds very comfy, fully equipped kitchen, utility, and very spacious. Quiet situation in winter. Very friendly agents Mother and daughter. Helpful in every way.

Drawback was the sun had gone by 10 am. on terrace, and there are too many buildings some empty to view in front of the sea. Summer holiday best I believe. Gardens and pool looked perfect.

Amazing apartment, location great, A++

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic accommodation, very clean and tidy, a perfect home from home. It was a nice surprise to have balloons and a personalised card from Jo for our birthdays on arrival (thank you).

Really wonderful eating breakfast on the balcony in the mornings with the sunshine and fantastic views of the coast. It was always great to use the underground car parking space which kept the car nice and cool.

The swimming pools were clean and well maintained, never over busy, we always found free sun loungers. A nice bonus having the ice cream van turn up there too!

Karen provided help with the shower, over the phone, which was a credit to her local knowledge of the apartment.

Karen also helped book a special meal for us which was off the beaten track, "Roman Oasis", absolutely fantastic choice, once again down to her local knowledge.

The location is perfect for visiting and exploring the various harbours and villages nearby and we managed day trips to Ronda, Gibraltar, Estapona and Puerto Banus (by night) which are all easy to get to by car. There's still lots more to explore in the area!

We are very keen to return in the near future.

Great value for money. Would definitely return.

  • 5 of 5

One of the best apartments my wife and i have ever had the pleasure of staying in. Very clean and well equipped, everything we needed was available. The pool we used was well maintained and very spacious with plenty of sunbeds available. Its location gave us plenty of exercise taking a leisurely 20 min stroll down into the port with its many bars and restaurants, although we did cheat and get a taxi back for a cost of approx 6 euros. Would definitely recommend.

Owner's Response: Nestled in the hills of Manilva, this beautiful luxury apartment boasts sea views from every room (except the bathrooms). It's just a 20 min downhill walk to the Port of Duquesa, 30 mins back, uphill; but just a 5 minute drive with plenty of free parking along the beach front and at the Port of Duquesa. Although a car is recommended, visitors without a car have also thoroughly enjoyed the location.

Lovely apartment and village

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week at Duquesa Village. The Apartment was really nice and was everything we had hoped it would be. The view from the Balcony is stunning. It's a short drive away from the port but a car is definitely recommended as the walk would be a killer up a very steep hill on the way back from the port. The village could really do with a small shop on site for essentials.

Duquesa Village is really lovely and clean and it's really well kept. The kids loved all the pools and we wouldn't hesitate to go back. Which we most probably will.

Communication from Jo was excellent and very helpful with all sorts of info to make the stay very welcoming.

Thanks very much x

Lovely quiet and well furnished apartment

  • 5 of 5

Perfect holiday apartment for our clan of 4 ... high quality furniture, kitchen inventory, lovely bathrooms, aircon, UK TV, private balcony , great access to best pool in the complex, felt very secure and safe and well looked after by the agents on arrival and throughout our stay, you will need a car to stay here but only 5 minute drive to the Port Area ... but this means nice and peaceful in the evenings and through the night. We have booked already for 2016, i highly rate the apartment and the complex ...

Owner's Response: This is a perfect getaway-a sea view location (sea views from every room), overlooking the golf course, with all the comforts from home, and more. Free Wifi, TV with UK channels, Sky Movies & Sky Sport, BT Sport, Disney channel, cartoon channels, and European channels (Denmark, Norway, Sweden). Our apartment is perfect for families (sleeps up five people), groups up to five people, or couples. We look forward to welcoming you!

Relaxed, chilled and happy holiday.

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we enquired about the property right through to being welcomed back home, by the charming hosts, this was a totally genuine pleasurable weeks holiday.Our little boy is Autistic and even his behaviour was somewhat subdued in comparison to other trips we have made.

Arriving at the apartment and being met by a resident key holder was great. There was even a lovely welcome pack too. Then having this lovely lady a phone call away for local advice etc was another nice touch. All genuine nice people.

The apartment was homely, clean and inviting. The complex it sat on was clean and the pools, 5 of them, were top notch, both clean and safe.

You need a car for this apartment as its set away from Puerto Duquesa towards the hills. The actual property was quite easy to find, especially as 10 minutes away a call to the lovely meet n greeters and they talk you in!

This was a fantastic holiday and we would like to thank Jo Brooks et al for being such attentitive hosts and taking any stress out of travelling, wondering what to expect and for being sensitive to our needs.

Thank you and we look forward to seeing you again soon.
