Really enjoyed our stay here. The apartment was perfect for us; spacious and fitted with everything we could need. We ate out the whole time as we were there to chill out and we were very impressed with the choice of bars and restaurants. We would come again. Thanks.

This is an exceptional apartment with fantastic views! I have stayed in Duquesa many times, in rental accommodation. This apartment was by far the best I have stayed in. The owners obviously use this apartment and have furnished it accordingly, rather than just as a holiday let. It has a homely feel, and the beds are so comfortable!! On booking I was a little concerned that noise from the port may be a problem at night, but it wasn't, I slept like a log, and waking up to the view every morning was great. Didn't want to come home and cannot wait to visit again, this apartment will definitely be my first choice of rental.
