Fantastic Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic Apartment, very well equipped and very clean. Added bonus was the Wifi for the kids. Pictures don't do it justice. Owner is perfect to deal with and replied to everything I needed very quickly. Would highly recommend this apartment, walking distance to beach, bars and restaurant. Will definitely return here

great holiday in Sabinillas

  • 5 of 5

My family and I arrived at the apartment on 13/08/2016.

We were met at the apartment by Paul and his wife who let us in and showed us around.

I can honestly say that this is the nicest apartment that we have stayed in on our travels.

Everything was as described and more!

It was absolutely spotless and had everything that you could possibly need for a relaxing stay in this beautiful part of Spain.

Nice touches like beach towels and your own sunbeds to bring down to the pool make life easier(no getting up at 6:00 to put towels on sunbeds)

The area itself is still quite Spanish with plenty of tapas bars and on the beachfront there is loads of restaurants to choose from.

It is a 10 minute walk to beach and about 15 minutes to the port of La Duquesa which has all the Irish bars,italians,Indians and a Chinese.

There is a new indian restaurant just past the port called mini India which we enjoyed.

The apartment is ideally situated as you can have the quieter Sabinillas or the livelier La Duquesa.

We would highly recommend this apartment to family and friends and are considering having our holiday there next year.

Owner's Response: John, Thank you for your review. Yet again it is great to hear that people enjoy the apartment for all the reasons we do - and more! Walking distance to a variety of restaurants was one of our requirements when we bought the apartment and it sounds as though the choice has increased over the summer. We will check them out in September when we go. Geoff

Beautiful 2 bedroom 2 bathroom apartment

  • 5 of 5

Quiet gated complex with well maintained large pool and gardens. Easy walk to the beach, port, shops restaurants etc. The apartment is clean comfortable and well equipped. Close to the bus route from Malaga to La Linea (Gibraltar) 5-10 mins walk. No need for a car. We were met at the apartment and shown around. All basics food and drink were there on arrival. Transfers can be arranged. Had a very relaxing comfortable time here, would definitely recommend.

Lovely Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Recently returned from a 2 week stay at the apartment and couldn't fault it. Everything as described and located 15-20 minutes walk from the lovely port where we spent most evenings. Pool area very relaxing and was never really busy despite the fact we were in peak season. The owner, Geoff, was happy to answer any queries we had and the local agents, Brenda and Neil were equally helpful. Would definitely recommend.

Recidencial Duquesa Apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is conveniently very located in pleasant surroundings for Sabanillas and Puerto de Duquesa , both of which have a wide range of restaurants.

It is well equipped and very clean. The furnishings are of a high standard and very comfortable.

The well equipped balcony is of a good size with views overlooking the swimming pool, mountains and sea glimpses.

The car garaging facilities were very useful as we hired a car from Malaga and were able to do a lot of sightseeing.

We will be recommending the apartment to friends.

Lovely Apartment

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have just returned from a weeks stay at this apartment. It was very clean and excellent equipped and furnished, a real home from home. 2 Great pools for the kids and across the road from the main entrance a lovely park for the kids. There was a welcome pack waiting for us, together with toiletries in both bathrooms - and also complimentary beach towels. Only a 5 minute stroll down the hill to the supermarket and 10 minute walk to Duquesa harbour with its bars and restaurants. The owner was extremely helpful and very accommodating throughout. Would definitely use again if we return to the area.

Activity and Interests

Car: not necessary


The sandy blue flag beach of Sabinillas is about 12 minutes walk away. This beach extends for some 1.6 km.

There are beach-bars at intervals along the beach.


Fly to Malaga or Gibraltar airports. Malaga airport is 50-60 minutes drive away (taxis about 130 Euros) and Gibraltar airport is 30-40 minutes drive (taxis about 70 Euros). A car is not essential but may work out cheaper than taxis airport transfers and will also give you the opportunity to explore the wider area. There is good local public transport and taxis are widely available.


10 mins walk to Sabinillas for shops, cafes, banks, ATMs and pharmacy; 15 mins to Puerto Duquesa for cafes, bars, restaurants, boat trips and water sports organisers.

20 mins drive to Casares (Andalusian white town); 40 mins to Gibraltar (English shops); 60 mins to Tarifa (daytrip ferry to Tangiers & wind/kite surfing on 12km Atlantic coast beach); 75 mins to Ronda (picturesque town); 95 mins to Cadiz (historic town); 130 mins to Seville (capital of Andalucía) ; 135 mins to Granada (Alhambra).

Further Details:

The sandy blue flag beach of Sabinillas stretches for some 1650 metres between the Puerto de la Duquesa and the Rio Manilva and includes the entire frontage of the town of Sabinillas. It is also a “working beach” as local fishermen still launch their boats here recovering them to the beach on return via capstan winches. You will often see restaurateurs waiting for their return to select the day’s menu. The beach is cleaned daily throughout the summer and several lifeguards and first aiders are available to offer help where and when required.
