About Claire Packwood

We have been coming to Duquesa since we bought our first apartment in 2007. As our family grew we needed a larger place so we purchased this one on Marina Real in 2009 when our children were 1 and 3! We love our family holidays here and couldn't think of anywhere we would rather be than Duquesa!

Claire Packwood purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Claire Packwood chose Manilva area

We fell in love with Duquesa after our first holiday there and bought a small studio apartment which we outgrew as our babies grew up! After waiting for the right property for some time, we snapped up this apartment as soon as we saw it.

It has perfect views over the beach, marina and pool. It has a huge balcony with 24 hour security and underground parking. It has lift access to our floor. The location is perfect for us - close to the beach and marina yet quiet and peaceful!

What makes this apartment unique

We love having such a wide range of bars and restaurants within easy walking distance. The pool is on your doorstep. You need to see it to appreciate it!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have owned properties in Duquesa since 2006 and have enjoyed many family holidays with our young children. We have owned this particular apartment since 2008, we looked long and hard for the right property. I hope you agree that this is the best spot in Duquesa. Our own little piece of paradise in the Costa del sol.

WOW the picture don't do this justice

  • 5 of 5

I am here at the moment the pictures of the apartment are out of date. The living room has been completely changed new fitted high gloss cabinet for the TV and electrical products. The bedrooms have been updatesd with fantastic new very comfy beds. The apartment is very modern and you can see the owners have spent a lot of money and time getting it to this standard. And the balcony wow just breathtaking with superb views over beach and marina and fantastic dining and relaxing outside furniture with sun beds. Who needs to leave this gorgeous apartment. Sun on it from sunrise until 5:30pm with sun blinds if you get to hot over the table and the relaxing seating area. I'm loving this and will be booking my next trip when I get home.

Well done owners!!!!

Fantastic apartment in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I stayed here for a week with our 9 month old and absolutely loved it. The apartment is spacious and light and has everything we needed for our stay. The apartment looked out onto one of the swimming pools and beach and really was a beautiful view. The balcony is really big and perfect for enjoying some sun and food in wonderful settings. The apartment is situated perfectly for enjoying Duquesa and walking to the nearby towns. Duquesa is a lovely place - incredibly friendly and a great choice of bars, cafes and restaurants. It's the ideal place for a great holiday for adults and families. Would definitely recommend.

Beautiful views from terrace

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a fantastic stay in this apartment. It was everything we had hoped for and more. We stayed in Duquesa last year and saw the apartment from the beach- we had to stay there and we weren't disappointed. So close to everything, but nice and quiet as well. Enjoyed many hours on the terrace both during the day and in the evening -watching the world go by. Anne Marie very helpful and friendly . Would not hesitate to return and would recommend for a lovely holiday in this beautiful location.
